Geek Desk – electric height adjustable desk for nerd workers

The Geek Desk (not to be confused with the Deek Gesk) is an electric powered, height adjustable work desk designed to offer ergonomic relief from the strains of sitting in one position all day. The thing levitates from 26” to a max of 46.5 inches in seconds, and comes in a mini and normal size. Would a battery powered portable version make sense? Nah, probably not. $749.00 for the mini.  The human body was simply not made to sit in a…

How Long to Beat – how long should it take you to beat your favourite game?

How Long to Beat is a quirky little website which aims to use player uploaded stats to identify how long it should take to beat a particular video game. It’s split between the main story, additional sections and also gives an overall average time. Since I’ve had trouble finishing just about any game ever made (except Halo) this is very interesting. Currently covers over 1000 games. Interesting.  Why it’s useful? # See if your potential game purchase is worth your…

Magic 8 Thing is a DIY update to an old favorite

There are some toys out there that are such classics that we canít stand but to remake them in new and fun ways. A very bored and creative individual sought out for adventure by trailing around his house for parts to a modernized Magic 8 Ball. Making use of an ATmega328, and LCD panel, and a mercury tilt switch, the Magic 8 Thing was born. It just wouldnít have been right to call it a ball or a block, as…

Razor Graffiti Chalk Scooter adds some color to your neighborhood

Scooters just seem to keep getting fancy add-ons. The Razor Grafitti Chalk Scooter is one of the more interesting scooters Iíve seen in a while, but I love the idea.

Whenever you feel like leaving your mark, all you have to do is press down your foot whilst gliding along and you can brighten up the neighborhood. Like any other good scooter, it folds…

I love my Google Voice service. I can’t seem to say that enough. I’ve been using the services since before it was acquired by the search giant a few years back, and can’t imagine how I got along without it before.

Antigravity Platform makes any small object float in the air

Last week we showed you a floating TARDIS, which is pretty cool for Doctor Who fans. However, if you’re not a fan of the series, you probably have no interest in a floating police box. So what if you could just swap it out for any other object? Now that would be a fun little conversation piece. That’s the simple idea behind this Antigravity Platform. Since such feats of suspension require precisely-positioned magnets, they’ve chosen to simply provide you with…

NavTones brings Gary Busey to your GPS

Not long after GPS systems started hitting a price where they were affordable for the masses, companies started offering celebrity voices for the units. Personally, my TomTom has been voiced by Eddie Izzard for a couple of years. His blend of British humor into my long drives keeps me entertained, even if he does yell at me from time to time. So who’s the next big celeb to crawl inside your GPS? Gary Busey. It’s hard to imagine having a…

Polyply concept is a great dock for Apple lovers

There are times where I look at the surface in front of me and about have a meltdown from how cluttered it is. Thereís an iPhone, iPad, and laptop stand sitting on my desk. The stylus for the iPad gets tossed here and there or thrown in a cup so I donít lose it. Trying to keep track of whatís where and rearranging it all can be a nightmare. My dreams of OCD perfection-like bliss came tumbling upon my eyes…
