Russian casemod looks menacing

Posted in Cases by Conner Flynn on May 18th, 2009

Russian casemod looks menacingWild casemods are nothing new. But this one is pretty unique. It has a menacing look and looks like it would keep you warm in place of a fire as you sip your Vodka.

There isn’t much info on it. Looks like bronze built around some Demon trapped Inside. Which makes it a great solid piece of furniture instead of a boring PC case.

Review: OtterBox Blackberry Curve case

Posted in Otterbox,Review by Darrin Olson on February 8th, 2009

OtterBox defender case for the Blackberry Curve reviewThe folks over at OtterBox, protectors of gadgets for the active and accident-prone, gave us a chance to try out one of their defensive products to see just how well it holds up. In this case, OtterBox sent us a protective case for the Blackberry Curve, a device I have with me day in and day out.

Since the case from OtterBox is protecting something I own and depend on daily, we did not put it through the usual drops, dunks and vodka-proof trials that we would normally do. But, despite this we can tell you that this case blows away any other protective case we’ve had our hands on, for any mobile device.

REVIEW: Schick Quattro Titanium Trimmer

Posted in Review by Darrin Olson on August 10th, 2008

Schick Quattro Titanium Trimmer RazorHow the folks at Schick knew we were a hairy bunch here at the ‘Brick is beyond me, but we’re glad they did since we got the chance to try out this new Schick Quattro Titanium Trimmer. We’re really not in the habit of reviewing personal hygiene products such as razors, but this one is kinda’ cool and runs on batteries so we thought we would make an exception.

Review: Wicked Lasers are truly wicked

Posted in Review by Darrin Olson on August 3rd, 2008

Review of Wicked Lasers Elite 125Wicked Lasers recently gave us the opportunity to check out one of their popular laser pointers, which gave us quite a surprise. Actually, before we received it we called it a laser pointer but not any more. Wicked Lasers assured us that it is not a laser pointer – it truly is a wicked laser, and we can’t disagree.

The sample product we received was from the Elite Series of green lasers, specifically the Elite 125. This laser appears to be around the middle of the road for the different lasers offered by Wicked Lasers. The average output power according to the company runs from 125mW to 149mW. They also have lasers in their catalog with as little as 50mW and as much as 300mW. The Elite 125 for us had plenty of power and made it very clear why this is not a laser pointer for regular presentations. For starters it would be difficult to see anything on a presentation screen because the light from the laser is way too bright, even from across a large room. Also, the crowd would be so distracted by what you’re using to point with they’d never pay attention to anything else you’re trying to show them.

Ion-Mask waterproofing your gadgets

Posted in Science,Waterproof by Reuben Drake on December 31st, 2007

Ion-mask technology used to waterproof gadgetsAnytime waterproofing is added to a gadget it just seems to make it that much more cool, but unfortunately not many electronic devices are able to live through being accidentally dropped into your Mai Tai or withstand a simple vodka resistance test because the the difficulty and expense of making small seals for all those cracks and crevices.

Well, thanks to some scientists at the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory in Porton Down, Wilts. who originally developed the technology, gadgets may soon be getting something called an Ion-Mask coating to provide waterproofing to all sorts of devices. The Ion-Mask was a military technology originally designed to protect soldiers clothing from chemical attacks but soon could be used to protect mobile phones and media players from moisture, rain and the occasional drop in the drink.

Rugged hands-on with the Casio G’zOne Type-S

Posted in Casio,Mobile Phones,Outdoors,Review,Verizon,Waterproof by Reuben Drake on September 30th, 2007

Casio G’zOne Type-S is a rugged mobile phone that can take wet, shock and outdoor exposureThis past June we wrote about Casio’s tough G’zOne Type-S mobile phone when it was released and we recently got a chance to get our hands on one to see just how tough this thing really was and what “water resistant” really meant. What we found is that the G’zOne Type-S lives up to its hype on standing against the elements and also had some nice surprises we were not expecting.

HangTimer Hands On

Posted in Outdoors,Review by Reuben Drake on June 25th, 2007

HangTimer measures your hang timeThe HangTimer from DropZone is just like the name sounds. It’s a small stopwatch sized gadget that’s used to measure your hang time when doing any type of activity that involves you being temporarily airborne.

It works through a Tri-Axis Accelerometer that measures the changes in acceleration that occur when you take jumps and then records the total time from when you left the ground until you return. The HangTimer controls consist of simply two buttons to run all the functionality. At first this was slightly confusing to switch between the modes but once …
