Tritium Nuclear Powered Watch glows in the dark…seriously

Nuclear power has been under the spotlight recently, right? What with Japanese problems and the resulting public unease about the safety of this stuff. So what better way to address our fears than for some enterprising soul to come up with a product which will demonstrate once and for all that all our worries are groundless. Or your arm back.

Source Filmmaker – what happens when everyone becomes a movie maker…does Hollywood die?

Game giant Valve recently released its sophisticated new free animated movie making program called Source Filmmaker and judging by the first results coming from the tool, it could massively impact the entertainment space over the coming years. Machinima, the art of making short (or long) movies using animated game engines, has been around for a good few years, but this is the first system which offers everything a budding movie maker needs, including motion capture and sound editing tools, to…

Star Wars Wampa Ice Scraper Mitt will make the frost lose its bite

When winter comes, you know that you will have to prepare your mind and body to go out and clean the ice off of your car in the mornings. Feeling in your fingers will be lost for the first few hours of the day, no matter what you try. The only solace you’ll have after this painstaking ordeal is the thought of the warm office that awaits you (which isn’t much comfort).

Blandito literally makes you a human burrito

When you think of the living room, lounging around or sleeping comes to mind. Most of the time you’ll have something along the lines of a couch, chair, and some end tables lying about. Unless you have a pull-out bed though, you’re only going to be able to sit or lay in predefined positions. This can be really uncomfortable, and have you waking up with neck or back pain.

Turn your iPhone into a dual SIM handset with the Dual SIM Case

It’s a real sign of the times when you realize that many people actually own or run two mobile phones, one for business and one for private use. Which is all well and good, but sooner or later there’s bound to be a ‘pocket episode’, where you have too many objects and too few orifices in which to stuff them. Recipe for trouble.

Connectify Dispatch promises to turbo charge your Internet connection with a click

If you’ve ever been stuck in an airport terminal and struggled to get the WiFi to work properly, you’ll know just how frustrating public net connections can be. They never seem to work when you need them most (nor, for that matter, do GPS map connections, but that’s another story). But now one enterprising company has the answer and it’s a very cool bit of technology all round.

Logitech K310 let’s you scrub-a-dub-dub with your keyboard in the tub

It seems that the only time you spill your coffee is when it’s piping hot, and you’re sitting in front of your computer. Of course, you then have to rush around like a maniac to get it all cleaned out, or you won’t have a functioning keyboard anymore. If we spill something on ourselves, we can just hop in the tub, but technology doesn’t really work the same way.

Anti Tracks Free keeps your PC super clean and shiny [Freeware]

Everything we do on our computer gets logged. Every file we open, image we edit, video we watch, and no matter how diligent we are these actions can be tracked back by anyone with enough smarts and time. Of course there’s no good reason for becoming overly paranoid about this stuff, but if you live in an insecure, shared environment, you might want to think about keeping some sort of control over your PC to ensure your privacy stays…well private.

Roman Candle Fireball Blaster won’t end your day with a trip to the hospital

While enjoying summertime festivities a couple of years ago, I was once shot in the leg with a Roman Candle. While it didn’t cause any serious damage, it did smart quite a bit, and burned a hole through the pants I was wearing. If you have kids, and they see people playing with these, they are going to want to do the same thing, which is not a great idea for obvious reasons.
