Wooden Bicycles come of age?

The unpronounceably named Slawomir Weremkowicz of Poland makes wooden bikes. No rubber, no metal, just wood. Each one takes around a year to make and judging by the looks of them, they’re a blast to ride (although we’re not sure about the saddles). What’s more the dude uses his creations every day. We think Slaw should get in touch with Michael Thompson in the UK, who’s also nutty enough to consider building bipedal transportation out of trees. His Splinter Bike is…

Airpiano sounds much better than the air guitar

If youíve ever listened to any music, thereís a good chance that you have experienced the phenomenon known as ďair guitarĒ at least once.

Freeware helps you track down your lost camera

There’s nothing quite like losing one of your favorite gadgets. If you leave it somewhere public, and it’s not there when you return, there is little chance of ever recovering it. Sure, you could get lucky and it might be picked up by an honest person that does their best to return it to you. However, that isn’t always going to be the case (and they might not even know how to get it to you). Well if the gadget…

Flipbac Camera Grips make your tiny point-and-shoot a little easier to hold

Being a DSLR user, I can appreciate the small size of point-and-shoot cameras. While they may not churn out the same quality pictures, they are much easier to carry around in your pocket. What frustrates me most about using them is that they are rather uncomfortable to use, due to their small size. There really hasn’t been any good way to make them more comfortable until now. A company by the name of Flipbac has solved this problem with their…
