Double Agent Shoes have secret compartments

Carrying a purse around everywhere can be kind of obnoxious. However, not lugging one around means you have to carry your phone and wallet in your hand, which is pretty inconvenient. On top of that, if you like to wear clothing that is free of pockets, you may be facing a bit of a dilemma.

Blink(1) is a USB RGB LED that will give your computer a light show

If you’re on your computer a lot, you’re probably subscribed to a bunch of different websites. Twitter, Facebook, and many others are going to try to send you notifications all at once, but sometimes these updates get missed while browsing around another site, or getting distracted on YouTube. You could always download a program to let you know whenever you get mentioned or messaged, but then you’ll have boxes popping up everywhere, getting in the way of what you’re doing…

You could invite all of your friends over and have a party on the ocean, or relax in tranquility as the waves rocked you to sleep. Normally this would be nothing more than a fantasy, but should you have a bit of disposable income, it could become a reality.

We get to see a lot of different stuff here at Ferret Towers. Some of it is useful, some valuable, while at other times we’re enchanted by silly novelty items orjust plain daft gadgets that are downright bizarre. Who comes up with this stuff, we’re often forced to exclaim?

Penovino makes it trivially easy to engrave onto metal, gift shops and police rejoice…

It’s a sign of the times that we’re now becoming obsessed with marking stuff. Whether it’s for gift purposes (‘your name engraved…’) or for security, we’re increasingly finding ways to ensure that our name, trademark, logo or other details appear on items we own or sell. The trouble is, while it’s easy to do on materials like cloth and plastics, it’s much harder to do properly on metal. Sure you can use a cheap Dremel or other engraving tool, but…

Low Glow Key Fob makes sure you have a light in dark times

There are times when finding something such as your keys or your phone can be a pain. I seem to have a penchant for losing my phone, and was given a jingle bell cellphone charm to combat this issue. Now all I need to do to find my phone is jostle the area where I remember seeing it last, and low and behold, I hear jingling.

Spike gives your iPhone a real keyboard

Having an iPhone has been a wonderful experience for me. I’ve been using one for about three years now, and it has fulfilled every want I could have for a phone.
