Pixabay – 65000 free public domain images for free download and use [Freeware]

It’s not hard to love websites which offer free stuff, whether it’s music, software or video. But we have a special place reserved for those intrepid folk who roll up their sleeves and brave the water to offer royalty free public domain images. There are so many competitors, and so many duff photos that it’s not an easy job. Which is why it’s really nice to find a site that does it right.

Bulletproof Whiteboard – this teacher plays no games

You just don’t know when someone is going to go buck wild with a weapon. Some may choose to hide at home and hope that no ill fate will ever befall them, but others want to take that chance. Although, that doesn’t mean you can’t be prepared. We’ve seen tons of bulletproof this and that in the past, but what about out teachers? They keep our kids safe, and should have protection too!

Waterproof Socks fight the outdoor blues

Going camping is normally a jovial time. You get to be outside with the trees, birds, and worms with little communication with the rest of the world. It’s a nice time to relax and soak in some tranquility. Hiking is normally an aspect of camping that is hard to avoid, and if you happen to step in a creek, you’ll be dealing with those wet socks for hours to come. This is undoubtedly going to affect your experience in the…

Diweinuo MOKA2 – turn your phone or tablet into a dual or triple SIM device from your keychain

It’s becoming very clear that having one phone is not enough for many people. What with home and work, and private and public and pleasure and pain. Hmm…maybe not the last, but you know what we mean. In the Far East they’re big on dual SIM, but over here in the West not so much for some reason. But now there’s a way to add dual and even triple SIM functionality to your plain old tablet, phone or even iPod…

Musomap – find and share the love with your fellow musicians

They’re everywhere, lurking in the background, strutting their stuff on SuperBowl stages, eking a crust on street corners. Yes we’re talking about those most loved and abused people, musicians. Whether they’re teaching, performing or just waiting for their big break, musicians are a vital part of any culture and because of that they deserve a place of their very own.

Atooma – the almost perfect smartphone automator app [Freeware]

One of the most powerful things you can have in your pocket right now, apart from a wallet containing Beyonce and Jesse Heiman’s personal phone numbers (google it), is a fully armed smartphone. The computing power of these things is amazing, and yet, as with our brains, we usually end up using a fraction of their full capacity.

Sphericam captures your entire world

We all seem to have a fascination of recording the world around us. Each moment that passes will never come again, so we constantly take photos, video, and write down current events to make a long-standing log of everything we’ve seen and heard. However, even with this incessant memory-making, we can’t capture everything around us…or can we?

Automatic Fish Feeder – let your vacations be guilt free

Ever since Nemo, our relationship with little cute water dwellers has taken a turn for the better. We think. They’re interesting to watch, and while fish may not do tricks (or do they?) or fetch your slippers, they can still be great companions on dark dreary nights. But what happens if you have to travel for business or pleasure, who will feed them when you’re away?

The Defender takes sandbags to a new dimension

Climate change is here. Whether or not you believe it, the evidence is plain – on-going severe droughts, steadily rising temps, rising sea levels and more frequent severe weather events like tornadoes, earthquakes and flooding. This last challenge has been addressed one of the 2012 red dot design concept winners. The Defender “sandbag” is designed for flood control. This innovative “bag” doesn’t contain sand like traditional sandbags. Made with absorbent recycled paper fiber, one long edge of its shell of…

Retro Kerosene LED Lamp – so cute it hurts

Sometimes it’s the simple things that count, like the way Mike Tyson’s nostrils flare when he’s reciting poetry, or the subtle whiff of cinnamon you get when the postman drops a fragile package on the sidewalk. No matter how you call it, some things just work because they’re right.
