Shush! app lets you specify just how long your Android phone stays silent

When I go to bed at night, I want to sleep undisturbed by my phone. I have enough trouble slumbering through the night without some random text or phone call waking me up. And with my unusual schedule, it’s not all that uncommon for such a call to occur. Usually I’ll just turn the sound off completely and forget about it. The downside to this is that I tend to forget to actually turn the ringer back on. Sometimes it…

The PiCycle is an electric bike with attitude.

Rainbow In My Room personal rainbow projector

If only I knew that something like this existed when I was a child, maybe I would still believe in unicorns. (You know you did too at one point.) This Rainbow Projector is exactly as it sounds and it a pretty interesting night-light if you ask me. The Uncle Milton Rainbow In My Room Projector is the first device I’ve seen to actually produce rainbows inside of your own house. Too bad I didn’t know about this prior to St….

Space Invader Multi-Tool

Space Invaders is one of those classic games where the objective and gameplay are both very obvious. Move back and forth while shooting lasers to fend off the alien horde. If it were any more simple, you’d be playing Pong. Well here’s a  Space Intruder multi-tool that is likely the hated relative of the Space Invaders. Instead of trying to destroy human kind, this Intruder offers a helping hand for our everyday problems. This is actually hardly a “multi-tool” but…

SensoGlove helps you with your golf grip

Working in an office environment can be stressful and overwhelming, especially when you have two or three higher-ups breathing down your neck for eight hours. If golf is your hobby and time where you let your mind escape, there’s a chance you don’t want a trainer sitting over your shoulder telling you when you’re doing it wrong. We all want to improve our game so to speak, so it makes sense that we’d rather do it on our own than…

Kiwi PC launches a desktop PC for senior citizens

Though our current generation is technology-based, there is still an older generation that knows nothing about computers at all. If you didn’t grow up with computers, it can be a little hard to just jump in. To them, a computer can seem to be a daunting challenge to learn, and if they’ve lived without it for so long, why get into it now? Kiwi PC has launched a line of Linux Desktop PCs for the elderly loved ones in your…

Caribou – An Andriod app that unlocks card key locks

Just when you think your “private residential pool” is safe because of the fancy card key they gave you at the desk, the Caribou app comes along to crash your pool parties. That’s right, the Android has gone super spy with an app that can hack basic card key systems. All you need is the IP address and you have 30 seconds to get in. Any doors that you open will re-close after the time limit is up, but half…

Eton ARCPT300W Safety Hub

If you have an emergency kit at home, there’s a good chance it’s a little outdated, as it likely doesn’t have much more than a flashlight and the radio. The American Red Cross Axis Self-Powered Safety Hub is probably one of the better updated versions for an all-in-one in case of emergencies. This safety hub comes with the good ole AM/FM radio with a tuner, giving you access to all seven channels of the NOAA weatherband. Equally if not more…

Sharpen your pencils via drill

Every now and then, you may find an item that doesn’t seem that interesting at first, but then it hits you with a ton of bricks of how awesome it is. Upon first seeing this, it didn’t matter much to me either way if you could sharpen a pencil with a drill. After a moment of contemplation, I realized that my foolish human brain had no idea of the OCD fantasy I could now fulfill. Every pencil in my home…

Pocket Purifier lets you sanitize everything in sight

If there were ever a fan of cleaning supplies, I promise you that I am probably one of the top of that list. I get excited over new cleaning supplies and actually want a nice vacuum for Christmas. Hand sanitizer is my best friend and air purifiers litter every corner of my house. The only problem is that no one else can hold up to my rigorous cleaning standards. It was a recent discovery that I came across the pocket…

COOKUP200 Solar Oven With Potential Death Ray Capabilities

It may be a bit of a stretch, but there’s no way this thing doesn’t have a death ray of some sort. The geeks at GreenCook in France have created a solar oven called the COOKUP200 that can be assembled in 10 minutes, and can cook full-blown meals. (If you know how to use it properly) I assume this is just a preliminary “for public use” item for sale to make money to build a giant death-ray. Even if I…

Floating TARDIS levitates, but won’t travel time and space

We all have a special place in our hearts for Dr. Who, and pretty much everything to do with the show. Whenever we can, we like to remind ourselves of its quirky british-ness and crazy contraptions. The TARDIS may be a thing of wonder, and nigh impossible to get your hands on, but what if you could have your own TARDIS that flies? The Doctor Who Levitating TARDIS is everything you’ve ever dreamed of and more. It floats and spins,…

Nerf Longstrike CS-6 is the longest Nerf gun to date

We all love Nerf for its kid friendly weapons of mass destruction. Its always fun to try and keep tabs on what new and better weapons they churn out as they always seem to get bigger and more precise. Their Longstrike CS-6 Sniper Rifle is their longest and possibly most awesome Nerf gun I’ve seen to date. This rifle measures three feet long, and comes in the usual bright orange and some blue and gray to make this model stand…
