Seagate Confirms 3TB Hard Drive Arriving Later This Year

- - 2 Comments

Seagate has confimed that they’ll release a 3TB hard drive sometime later this year.  But for those running Windows XP or an earlier OS, they’ll be unable to access the majority, if not any of the drive’s contents.  The problem is a result of DOS, which essentially locks out storage...

The iDeck Converts Your Car’s Cassette Deck Into An iPod Dock

- - 0 Comments

I’m waiting on the iKit to come to market, but until that time I might have to survive with the iDeck.  It turns your car’s cassette player into an iPod dock.  There’s no word on if it works with the iPhone but since it’s sports a standard 30-pin dock I...

The jury is still out on Microsoft’s Natal.  They’ll show the device off next month at E3.  There we should hopefully get a hands on with the motion sensing video game device and get a better gauge on how much it will cost.  But until that time arrives will have...

iMac iPhone Dock

- - 0 Comments

The iMac has seen at least three different designs in the last 10 years, but the one that I hold close to my heart had the articulating swing arm built-in.  This iPhone/iPod speaker replaces the monitor for a 30-pin dock and takes the unorthodox approach of using whatever surface you...

Custom LEGO Bridge Vehicle Is Ridiculously Cool (video)

- - 0 Comments

Talk about an extensive LEGO build!  The Stilzkin EXT3 Bridge Launcher is a real working LEGO vehicle made by Peer Kreuger.  It can pull up to any gap and drop its own bridge to get across.  The real world military has vehicles like this, but for some reason a LEGO...

AHA Nintendo Stamp

Today’s Nintendo Announcement Is Just An American Heart Association Endorsement Deal

- - 0 Comments

Today, Nintendo and the American Heart Association were set to make an announcement.  Surely we thought it had something to do with the WiiVitality Sensor , right?  Wrong.  It’s far less interesting.  The AHA will be putting their stamp of approval on the Wii, Wii Fit Plus and Wii Sports...

Light switch Timer

Robotic Light Switch Timer

- - 2 Comments

Automatically turning off light switches is cool, messing with hi voltage electricity is not.  Okay, so your house probably doesn’t have a third rail running through it, but I wouldn’t dare start screwing with my home’s electrical wiring for fear of electrocution.  The Light Switch Timer mounts over any standard...

Kapten Talking Pocket GPS From Kapsys

- - 0 Comments

The cringe of crap gadgets overwhelms me sometimes.  The Kapten Talking Pocket GPS is going to be the smallest and most expensive ($475) GPS navigational aides you might never care to notice.  Foregoing an LCD display in favor of a small unit size, the Kapten Talking Pocket GPS leads you...

Wall Grill: Not Endorsed By Paul Wall

- - 0 Comments

Grill design is one of those things that will always moisten the panties of the American male.  So while his wall hanging grill is certainly cool, is it really necessary?  This “step above” DIY project has a generous ash pan that allows for multiple grillings before needing to be emptied...

Twilight Air Purifier Concept That Streams Images And Video

- - 2 Comments

What I consider to be a totally odd product combination, the Twilight Air Purifier concept lets you stream videos and images across its OLED sheet surface.  WTF you ask?  Beyond cooling and circulating air, it is also a media viewer.  The pictures tell a story of a huge sheet hanging...

Assassin’s Creed BrotherHood GameStop Pre-Order Bonus

- - 0 Comments

So is it safe to assume now that Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood is in fact, definitely not Assassin’s Creed 3? With news of the Brotherhood iteration arising as of late, I was certainly disappointed in the return to Rome, but that’s only if this is some Ass Creed 2.5 type of...
