Make Star Wars Pancakes

Posted in Star Wars by Conner Flynn on July 18th, 2011

Pancakes are awesome. When they are shaped like Star Wars characters they are even better. Now you can get two sets of molds, one with a bunch of vehicles, the other Star Wars heroes and villains. So now you can enjoy your pancakes on both the light and dark side of the force.

What could be better than dining on a Stormtrooper head or a Tie-Fighter? Not much, but then we are hardcore geeks. They range from $9.95 a set to $19.95. May the force be with your breakfast.

Robots making me breakfast? Sign me up for that. This Lego Pancake robot can make pancakes in a bunch of different shapes which can be pre-programmed into the robot before entering your stomach.

The Pancake Bot is a 3 axis CNC made robot that uses the Z coordinate as the Pancake Batter Dispenser Control. I can only hope that one day we will be able to buy robots like this and welcome them into our home.

ChefStack Automatic Pancake MachinePancakes are tasty in the morning. But they are soooo hard to make. First you have to pour the batter in the pan, wait, flip it and wait some more before they hit your plate. Who has the time or skill for such difficult foods?

Digital Thermometer Pan makes for perfect pancakes

Posted in Kitchen by Conner Flynn on November 2nd, 2008

Digital Thermometer Pan makes for perfect pancakesMaking Pancakes is trickier then it seems. If your temperature is too low you’ve got a long wait for that perfect pancake. If the temp is too high, you’re gonna burn them. It’s part instinct and part science. But it helps to have a pan that will tell you the precise temperature. After all, once the guesswork is taken out of the equation, all that’s left to do is make some perfect pancakes and eat.

Getting the temperature just right is the true secret of cooking. This Digital Thermometer Pan shows you the exact temp of the middle of the pan, displayed on a removable readout in the handle. It will cost you $50. Completely worth it for that perfect breakfast. The pan is 7.8 inches in diameter, and we’re hoping it shows up in a wide array of sizes.

Samsung launching five new NX lenses

Posted in Cameras by Conner Flynn on February 21st, 2011

Samsung is launching five new lenses for its NX Series of mirror-less cameras, bringing the number of lenses to 10 for that system. These lenses will feature Samsung’s i-Function that allows the user use one physical control to set various parameters of the camera. For example, if you like taking photos without using a flash, Samsung has a few “fast” lenses: the 16mm f2.4 pancake, the 60mm f2.8 and the 85mm f1.4. That last is great for taking portraits indoors.

If you want a “do-it-all” lens, the 18-200mm f3.5-6.3 should work good for you outdoors. There’s also the 16-80mm f3.5-4.5 if you don’t want an extreme zoom.

Posted in Cameras by Conner Flynn on November 4th, 2010

It seems like we’ve been hearing rumors of a successor to the GF1 forever now and now Panasonic has officially announced the Lumix DMC-GF2, Panasonic’s smallest and lightest interchangeable lens system camera. Some features include a 12.1 megapixel Live MOS sensor, compatibility with the company’s 3D Lumix G 12.5mm F12 interchangeable lens and a body that is seven percent lighter and nineteen percent smaller than it’s predecessor.

There’s also a three-inch touchscreen, a contrast AF system, a newly designed Touch Q user interface, internal dust reduction system and you can capture 1920 x 1080/60i video in AVCHD. The GF2 will ship in January, available in silver, red and black, and bundled with a 14mm F2.5 pancake kit lens or a 14-42mm zoom lens.

Samsung launches five new lenses for the Samsung NX10

Posted in Cameras by Conner Flynn on February 22nd, 2010

Remember the Samsung NX10? It’s a hybrid DSLR using a new format created by Samsung which is slightly bigger than the Micro Four Thirds format and smaller than the DSLR format. Samsung has just announced five news lenses for the NX10, which includes an 18-55mm f3.5-56 lens, a 20mm f2.8 pancake lens, a 60mm f2.7 macro lens, a 20-50mm f3.5-56 lens and an 18-200m OIS f3.5-63 lens.

The new lenses are smaller than standard DSLR lenses since the NX10 doesn’t have any mirrors inside.

Art Lebedev’s Transparentius makes roads safer

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on December 22nd, 2009

Transparentius is a simple and great idea. Just put a camera on the front of a large truck, then project that image onto the back of the truck. This makes the truck “transparent” for the driver behind, who now has much more information about what lies on the road ahead.

If you know what’s coming, you won’t get flattened like a pancake on the road when you try to pass. We don’t know how the rear projection is achieved or how sunlight glare factors in, but Art Lebedev usually has it all thought out. The real question is, how expensive would this be?

World’s first power assisted luggage for those who travel heavy

Posted in Accessories by Shane McGlaun on June 24th, 2008

Live Luggage Power Assisted BagI don’t travel all that much, but when I do one of the biggest pains is schlepping all of my gear the 20 miles through the airport. Inevitably I am running through the airport trying to make my flight, making pulling the bags even less fun.

A company from England has announced the world’s first power assisted luggage that aims to make the trek through the airport and to the hotel easier by making the luggage pull itself. The bag uses a pancake wheel technology and an Anti-Gravity handle to put a major portion of the bags weight over the wheels.

Scented candles that smell like cool things

Scented candles that smell like cool things
We all know that the ladies like candles that have smells like Gentle sea breeze or tropical mountain mist and the like. That’s great for them, but no real man wants to smell such girlly things. What if a company made candles that smelled like cool things that men can appreciate. That’s just what Hotwicks scented candles are all about. You won’t find any flowery potpourri scents here. Instead they offer scents like beer, campfire, grass (your lawn, not your dime bag), new car, pancake, pigskin, stripper, popcorn, and yes even urinal cake.

You can have some great fun with these and create an entire atmosphere just by combining the right ones. Combine beer with urinal cake and stripper, for an olfactory trip to a seedy strip club. Take away the urinal cake candle and the club just got classier. These candles will cost you $9.
