Starry Light Lamp – Reach for the stars…and change the light bulb

Stargazing is rather thought provoking. You think about your meaning in the grand scheme of things, whether or not you’re looking out and being looked at in return, and for the more star-savvy people, naming every star in the vast night sky. Through different parts of the year, we can see different constellations, but once we go home, it doesn’t matter if it’s night or day time, because you are definitely not going to see any stars.

Retro Tape Deck Calculator – reliving the rewind years

Sorry, can’t help it. We pine for the yesteryears when men were men and recording devices came with boxes of spooled delight tangled around your feet. Yes we’re wearing rosy glasses, but c’mon, do the modern digital equivalents have anywhere near the romance of a gently whooshing tape reel?

The Pee Analyzer – RFID chip and card + urinal + nightclub = safer roads

Drunk driving kills and injuries hundreds of thousands of people every year across the world, tragedies that could so easily be avoided if people realized they were impaired and opted out of taking the risky trip home. But unfortunately alcohol also has the effect of making us over-confident in our abilities, and so these tragic accidents keep happening just because we think we’re fine when we aren’t.

Monster iSport In-Ear Headphones make sure you don’t miss a beat

One of the most annoying things during a workout is getting in the zone with your favorite music on, and having your ear buds fall out because you’re either too sweaty, or shook them out. Usually if it happens once, it’s bound to happen again. Should this be an issue you face, then you’re likely going to want to shop around for a new set of headphones that can handle your exercise routine.

Razor Crazy Cart – Real life Mario Kart anyone?

There are days when it sucks being an adult because you see a kids toy that looks amazing and know that it’s too small for you. Little cars that are reminiscent of Mario Kart are often the most interesting, but hardly any of them go fast enough to merit a real ‘race’. There are big versions of kids toys that can help you relive some fond memories, but those always cost an extraneous amount of money.

Universal Hot Swap Charger – this $3 accessory might just transform the way you use your smartphone [Review]

I’ve got a neat little setup going with my Sony NEX camera which involves using two batteries, one of which is in the camera and the other which is fully charged at all times as a spare. That way, when one battery runs out, I just pop it into the handy charger by my desk, put the fully charged 2nd unit into the camera and I’m ready to go again instantly. Hardly rocket science. But I got to wondering whether…

Aquaponics Fish Garden – It’s the circle of life

Keeping a fish is not nearly as intensive as having a cat or dog. You don’t really need to interact with them all that much other than to toss in some food. Of course, the lovely task of cleaning out their bowl comes up what feels like rather frequently, but there are ways to get around that.

GrandDaddy Watch is the largest in the world, probably belongs to Father Time

Having a watch helps you tell time, but is not necessary to wear as we always go for our phones first. As this is one of the few socially acceptable accessories for men, it’s common for males to possess several of them. Some of the gentlemen I know seem to be a bit fanatical about them, wanting bigger, better time pieces that will both look impressive and tell the time.

Chalktrail – when you want to exercise your creativity

It doesn’t matter how young or old you are. Drawing with sidewalk chalk is fun, and anyone who gives you a weird look is just jealous that they don’t have the confidence to doodle on the ground. While this artistic medium can be used to leave your mark in one place, don’t you wish that you could lay a trail of masterful pieces all over town?
