Ghost Hunt will help you become the ghostbuster you were destined to be

We’ve all seen the movies, and as much as you want to become a ghostbuster, it’s a difficult profession to prepare yourself for. Those pesky ghosts and ghouls are usually quite hard to track down, and proton packs are a bit hard to come by. However, with Halloween coming up, you’ll want to practice your ghost hunting capabilities, as they are going to be rampant at the end of the month.

The Popinator makes eating popcorn more fun

Popcorn lovers have always had one disadvantage. Whatever they’re doing – driving, playing video games or working – they always have to stop what they’re doing to dive for their favorite snack. The Popinator could be an elegant and fun solution. The Popinator is an automated popcorn-shooting device. Created by snack maker, Popcorn Indiana, it uses a binaural microphone system – which is similar to how we hear things – and when it “hears” the word “pop”, it launches a…

ONDA V701 Dual Core 7 Inch Tablet PC for $87.99 should seriously worry Apple

Wow, the tablet market is moving like a rocket, both in terms of price and specifications. Think back a mere 12 months ago and the only low cost tablets you could get were nasty tacky models with unresponsive resistive touchscreens, anemic processors which could barely cope with web browsing and all the style of a plastic brick (no offence Mr Leg0). But not any more.

Treadwall will put all other workouts to shame

Finding the right workout for you can be tough as there are so many to choose from. Several of them tone specific parts of the body, and are useful in their own right. However, some regimens are a bit tougher than others as they put your entire body through a lot of physical strain.

World’s Largest Toe Tap Piano has you dancing to the music

Music is timeless. It always has been, and it always will be. This audial method of entertainment has been around for years, and we always seem to find new approaches to how we create it. Different instruments, using our voices, or even found objects have crafted melodies that make us laugh, cry, or think about the world around us. If your little one expresses an interest in music, and you want to start teaching them an instrument without actually buying…

AirMicro iPhone Scope will have you seeing a whole new world

We’ve seen portable, pocket-sized microscopes in the past, but it was always something where you had to look through a tiny peep hole. The strain of focusing your eye on such a detailed view can be a bit rough, especially with a bright light illuminating whatever it is that you’re studying. Having a secondary monitor would be nice, but wouldn’t that ruin its portability?

MPAA/RIAA Whack-a-Mole No 34586 – Movie Magnet

Sometimes you have to feel a little sorry for the entertainment industries. Sure they messed up in the beginning when they could have co-opted the technologists to help adapt and improve their business models instead of suing them, but right now they’re facing an eternal and unwinnable war and it’s clear they really have no clue what to do.

Walker’s Path Illuminating Belt makes sure you aren’t left in the dark

If you like to run at night, then you probably bring a light of some sort with you. There’s nothing like thinking you would know a route blindfolded only to discover there are a pile of sticks waiting to trip you. While there are headlamps you can wear, they often blur out your vision a bit, and make it hard on other runners, as you essentially have your “brights” on the entire time.

Ergonomic Arm Rest alleviates pain before it starts

If you spend a lot of time in front of the computer, then you know that if everything isn’t sitting just so, you’re going to start getting joint pain. If your monitors aren’t eye level, your neck is going to hurt, if your chair is uncomfortable, you’re going to have back pain, and if your hands aren’t sitting in the right place while your typing and clicking away, your wrists, forearm, and elbow are going to be sore. These are…
