Maybe the World’s Largest Coffee Cup says a bit too much about your caffeine addiction?

We’re thinking that this World’s Largest Coffee Cup is wrong on oh so many levels. At a time when nations are facing a massive shortage of raw materials and commodities, why should one person dominate a whole month’s supply in one sitting? And what does it do to your adrenal glands? Or bladder? Anyhoo, if you’re one of those who needs to demonstrate your love for all things addictive, this is probably one of the products you’ll need to store in…

Kozzi lets you download up to 30 stock photos a month for free

There’s no shortage of stock photo services out there, since it seems that every man Jack with a digital camera can now upload their images to various places on the web. However, finding good quality images can still be a chore if you’re not willing to spend lots of money paying royalty or download fees. It doesn’t help that the big companies like Getty have a habit of buying up the free/cheap image services and then ripping off innocent consumers…

Hammock Compatible Sleeping Bag gives you a swinging nest to sleep in

If you are a fan of camping or spending most of your time outdoors in the summer, your sleeping bag and hammock are likely your best friends. However, they both seem to have their downsides. A sleeping bag means laying on the cold hard ground and waking up to stiff joints. On the other hand, a hammock will cradle you to sleep, but leave you freezing as it is usually just thick netting.

Soundlazer will make people think they’re going crazy

When you think of a laser, you likely think of a very focused beam of light. You can use it for playing with the cat, pointing out important points in a lecture, or being obnoxious at a theater.

USB Wireless Air Mouse is the mouse you wear

We’ve seen some strange products in our time, illuminated toilet seats, bacon bandages, even a reluctant bride cake topper, but we’ve got to hand it to this little doozy. The idea of taking a humble little rodent, adding a strap on glove attachment and selling it to the great masses takes some real courage.

Maxthon for Android is the smartphone browser you’ve been waiting for [Daily Freeware]

I recently spent time gushing over the new Maxthon 3 desktop web browser in our Firefox alternatives post earlier this month, and the more I use it, the more impressed I get. It’s incredibly fast, uses very little memory (and with zero memory leak) and has a ton of really useful features built in. It also keeps my laptop running around 20 degrees cooler than Firefox, especially with lots of tabs open. Something to do with CPU load I guess.

PirateBox transforms any space into a open file sharing network

The technology news may be filled with talk of pirates, copyright and file swapping, but there are other variations on the whole network sharing paradigm which don’t get the same amount of sensationalist press. One example is the continued popularity of IRC, a communications channel which is heavily used by geeks to discuss special topics such as programming, and startup business life.

Word Bully tackles cyber bullying by prying into your child’s life

Bullying is a nasty and pervasive part of many children’s lives, and there’s no doubt that it needs to be dealt with in as many ways as possible, ranging from parent education (how to spot the signs) to classroom monitoring to pick up on signs early enough to stop something developing into a fully traumatic event. In this regard we need to applaud any technology that helps to fight the bully at source.
