Remote Controlled Construction Site – dig it, move it, pull it, squeeze…

Could there be any more exciting way to fill your leisure hours than playing with this Remote Controlled Construction Site kit, which gives you the power to dig your earth, pull your loads, crane things and generally act like a real property magnate on steroids?

Webbrowserpassview – the scariest freeware program in the world

Webbrowserpassview is a freeware program that automatically scans and unveils all the web site passwords stored in your Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer and Opera web browsers. What makes this so scary is the fact that literally anyone can now scan your laptop and immediately access your private web sites at will. The program doesn’t have to be installed, so it can be run from a USB key, and once you fire it up the passwords are automatically displayed in 2 seconds. So it’s…

VOIP calls come to Google Voice (sort of)

I love my Google Voice account. Being able to hand out one number and know that it will ring any phone I need can be rather useful. Not to mention the ability to block numbers with the greatest of ease. One thing I’ve been hoping to see is the ability to use the number in a VOIP setting, a la Skype. Well it seems that I may get that very thing. It would seem that Google is working on implementing…

ByteSpotter Hard Drives look great, but will break the bank

I’ll admit that I’m a sucker for a nice-looking PC. I’m rather proud of my setup, and usually take into account how a device is going to look when I add something to my desk. Mind you, I won’t spend a great deal of extra money to have something nicer-looking. For instance, when selecting a new hard drive, I’m not going to pay an extra $400 to have it look really, really nice. A company called CONVAR is selling high-end…

Wireless Luggage Finder lets you know when your bags have arrived

These days flying can be a real hassle. Not only are ticket prices on the rise (along with luggage fees), but security checkpoints are worse to go through than ever. By the time you’re off the plane, all you want to do is get as far away from that place as possible. Unfortunately you can’t just hop in a taxi and go, as you need to pick up your luggage. If you were on a packed flight, there can be…

Social Network Access Keyboard

Though I have some personal qualms with the Facebook industry, it is a pretty big deal lately. Ok so itís been a big deal for a while. It seems we donít really use the site to itís full potential. There are a lot of people I know who run businesses much better because of Facebook, but they still arenít using everything on the site that they could be. The new SNAK (Social Network Access Keyboard) helps you easily access different…

Facebook is now streaming movies

If you have the desire to stream a movie to your computer, you have plenty of options. Netflix and Hulu come to mind, along with half a dozen others. Of course there is a new kid on the block hoping to deliver video to your computer. Strangely enough, that kid is Facebook. I’m really not sure why on earth Facebook needs to stream movies. After all, the videos and music on people’s pages is what drove me away from Mypace….

Google Maps Navigation now guides you around heavy-traffic areas

There’s nothing worse than leaving the house early, only to get stuck in traffic, causing you to be late in arriving at your destination. If you’re lucky, you might flip on the news at the very moment they are announcing a wreck on the very road you were planning to take. However, most of the time you don’t know about the backed up cars until you’re in their midst. If you use Google Maps Navigation on your Android phone, you’re…

The Woofer turns your dog into a walking speaker

There was a time when it wasn’t all that uncommon for someone to be walking down the street and blasting music from a boombox. These days people are mostly content with using earbuds and keeping their tunes to themselves. However, if you want to share your music with the world, you needn’t lug around a giant contraption to pump it out. All you need is your dog, and a Woofer. The Woofer is a speaker that is integrated into a…

CellBlaster UV Cell Phone Sanitizer

There can never be enough cleaning supplies in the world to keep up with how many germs there are. One of the biggest things that I hate touching on a consistent basis but have to is my phone. I know that may sound strange, but there are times in the day where I can run to the bathroom before washing my hands to touch my phone. Even though I might come out of the bathroom with more germs than I…

Phosphor Watches tell time with revolving crystals

Though there may be a lot of interesting watches out there, Iíve got to say that I like this one the best. Mainly because it makes clicky noises when the time changes, but it has a really neat concept. The American watch brand Phosphor has a wristwatch out named the Phosphor Reveal, and is the first mechanical digital watch that uses Micro-Magnetic Mechanical Digital technology.† Thatís likely a giant tongue twister made up by the company, but it still sounds…

DIY Bluetooth Glove turns your hand into a headset

Though we all do love our cell phones, the amount of times we drop, break, or lose them makes us wish we didnít have to pull them out of our pockets to talk on them. Yes, there are those Bluetooth headsets that you can wear, but no one likes people that wear those. Thankfully, there are some geeks out there that have crafted a perfect solution, dubbed the Bluetooth Gloves. It may sound a little off, but itís something weíve…

Necono Cat Camera is cute and tiny

Japan gives us many strange things that we will surely not find anywhere else. For example, this orange striped white cat is actually a camera that has magnetic feet. Why you may ask? We have no idea, but it winks at you to make you feel good about yourself when you take a photo. Though this may be a little strange, itís still a pretty decent little camera. He hides a microSD slot and a USB port in his belly…
