Hasbro’s My3D Viewer turns your iPhone into a ViewMaster

When you were a kid, did you ever have one of those ViewMasters? They were little devices that allowed you to view images in 3D.

iPhone Photo Printer

Seeing as the quality of photos that come out of newer smartphones are pretty decent, it makes pretty good sense that we use them to take a good portion of our photos.

Preserve your carpet with these DIY Office Chair Glides

I love my computer chair. Which is a good thing, since I spend much of my day in it. Thankfully I’m on low-pile carpet, which means that I can roll around with ease, without the need for a chair mat. However, if you have high pile carpet, you understand how essential a good chair mat is. Without one, not only will your chair have difficulty moving, but you’re going to damage that soft floor covering. That is, unless you replace…
