Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on May 9th, 2010

Fans are good for circulating the air in your room or your home in the summertime. So it makes no sense that they just point in one direction. The double room circulator makes more sense. It’s a double-headed fan that can be pointed in two directions at the same time for maximum circulation.

This design speeds up the circulating air, clearing the hot air from your home and cooling you down efficiently. Single head fans are for suckers.

Cool Halo Xbox 360 dioramaWe love Halo around these parts, so when we spotted this awesome Halo-themed Xbox 360 diorama with matching case, we had to share. It’s the work of a man named Max who was obviously working through his own Halo obsession through the project.

If you have a close look at all the pics, there’s a ton of detail. So it’s not surprise that it took two months to build in his spare time. Us, we would have just used that spare time to get our game on. Awesome work.

Asus Marine Cool concept motherboardMotherboards are always cool to look at, but soon Asus will be rolling out a brand new Marine Cool concept motherboard that is truly a sight to behold. The board will target hard core gamers and one of the main features is a brand new backplate with “micro-porous ceramic” technology, which is said to deliver quicker heat dissipation while improving the structural integrity of the board.

$400K Cabestan Winch Tourbillion Watch has a chain drive

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on December 19th, 2008

Cabestan Winch Tourbillion Watch has a chain driveSpending a few grand on a watch is ridiculous. Spending $400K takes it to a whole other crazy level. $400K is what the Cabestan Winch Tourbillion watch will cost you. From afar it sort of resembles a weird fishing rod reel, but up close, you can see the amazing workmanship.

We’re talking 1352 components driven by a 450 link chain and nickel silver drums in horizontal precision. How cool is that? Still, it’s like buying a house for your wrist. I bet this $400K watch is a real hit with bankers and auto executives. The rest of us can just admire it from afar.

GreenCore 10200: Air Conditioning from solar power

Posted in Solar Powered by Conner Flynn on August 14th, 2008

GreenCore 10200: Air Conditioning from solar powerAir conditioners are not usually solar powered because they use so much power you would need a large surface area of solar panels to keep it going. What’s interesting here is that the GreenCore 10200 solves this problem by using a battery pack that it recharges continuously throughout the day. (It can also be charged directly from the wall)

The GreenCore comes with a configuration that will not be enough power to run the air conditioner completely on it’s own, but what it will do is save you some serious money on your next power bill by doing it’s part and it can be combined with other solar panels to supply its complete power needs. The technology looks pretty promising and can be used in a variety of ways.

World’s first Etch-a-Sketch clock
Here’s a first. The world’s first Etch-A-Sketch clock. They obviously went through a ton of trouble to make it a reality as well. God bless their zelda loving geek hearts. Every minute the device draws out the time in a matter of seconds and then actually erases it to start the process all over again for the next minute. Awesome!

Now if I can only finish my Lite Brite version of Dogs Playing Poker, my place will be all decked out in useless geek tech. Video of the clock below.
