3-in-1 cigarette lighter, air purifier, perfume dispenser

Posted in Lighters by Conner Flynn on April 9th, 2009

3-in-1 cigarette lighter, air purifier, perfume dispenser Most smokers own a cigarette lighter that does one thing. Light cigarettes. But now you are in the 21st century. Hows about a lighter that does 3 things? This gadget-lighter will still provide a flame, but it will also act as an air purifier and perfume dispenser.

I guess the idea is to light up, then purify the air, then perfume it. It’s like you and your cig were never there. You have just become a ninja. For $54.99 you’ll also get a car charger. Why do I get the feeling this doesn’t work as advertised?

Gadget cruelty: Turtle USB hubIs there anything sadder than an animal impaled with a bunch of usb sticks? I think not. It looks like gadget roadkill on your desk. Like some mad scientist doing weird experiments. Put this turtle next to the mutant cow usb hub and things look even creepier.

Brando Rota-Rota Hub: USB, card reader & thermometerThe latest combination gadget from Brando is the Rota-Rota USB hub that combines three swiveling USB ports, readers for most flash memory formats and…two thermometers? It does have a nice vintage car style thing happening.

Sure, you may have some extra USb ports already. Maybe even a card reader, but I bet you don’t have a thermometer on your desk. C’mon, it must be important to know how hot or cold it is on your desk, to some of you right? For $15 you can have your answer.

Wake up and defuse with the Dynamite shaped Alarm Clock

Posted in Clocks by Conner Flynn on March 22nd, 2009

Wake up and defuse with the Dynamite shaped Alarm ClockWe’ve seen many alarm clocks that will wake you up in unusual ways. The Wake n’ Bacon clock comes to mind. That’s because we need some incentive to wake up. Whether you have a hangover or are just dead tired, you need a clock that makes a statement.

Something that says, Get your ass up or I’ll blow you to bits. That’s what this Dynamite alarm clock does. Wake up every morning and defuse a bomb. And because some of you actually need to be told, this is not the alarm you should take with you while traveling. The manufacturer also advises that you not leave the clock anywhere that it might be mistaken for a real bomb.

The Cherry Chomper is waiting patiently for your finger

Posted in Kitchen by Conner Flynn on March 19th, 2009

Cherry ChomperThe Cherry chomper supposedly provides a safe, quick and easy way to pit cherries, but this little guy looks entirely too happy about his job. Like he’s waiting to take a bite out of your finger. A “plunger design action pushes pit and residual juice into the bottom container”.

This little guy has chomped more cherries than Fabio after a book/I can’t believe it’s not butter signing. Yeah, it says the protective ‘tooth’ ensures that hands and fingers stay safely out of the way, but I’m not buying it, because teeth can fall out.

Gadget cruelty: Put the USB Cow out of its misery

Posted in USB by Conner Flynn on March 5th, 2009

Gadget cruelty: Put the USB Cow out of its miseryWhat the #%$$@ was the manufacturer thinking? There is no scenario in which this USB hub is even remotely normal on your desk. I guess if you like to torture cows by sticking flash drives in them, you might take a shine to it, but mostly it’s just wrong.

I guess it could have been worse. The cow could be standing and have a bunch of flash drives as udders. Maybe you have to coax them in so it looks like you’re milking the beast. Damn. I think I just gave them another idea. Seriously old Bessie here looks like she’s begging for a bullet to put her out of her misery. Poor thing.

Bakery mistake results in the creation of a USB Flash Drive Cake

Posted in USB by Conner Flynn on February 1st, 2009

Bakery mistake results in the creation of a USB Flash Drive CakeWe like geek cakes ’round these parts, as evidenced by our not one, but two compilations of geek cakes. But if you want a custom cake from a bakery, you better be specific about what it is that you want. Otherwise you end up with cake fail.

So check out this funny incident. Some guy orders a custom cake and asked that a photo of a friend be integrated into the decoration. Simple enough right? So he delivers the photo as a .JPG on a Lexar Jumpdrive Trio flash drive. And look what ended up on the cake.

Weather Mate: Portable emergency weather info

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on February 1st, 2009

Weather Mate: Portable emergency weather infoThis one is a great device for the adventurer, whether you are on the high seas, trekking through swampland, or in the jungle. Bear Grylls will definitely want to get one of these. It’s called the Weather Mate and comes from designer Samuel Jones. It’s an emergency weather radio that will automatically notify you of a flood, high winds, storms, tornadoes and other weather conditions that can potentially harm you.

The device is easy-to-navigate and though it looks alien, features a 6-LED flashlight, a full spectrum of NOAA weather frequencies, LCD Screen, circuit board, radio receiver and a speaker. It can be powered by a battery or it can run off of the dynamo by winding the rear crank handle.

The Kyocera NS01 is the first real “belt” phone

Posted in Mobile Phones by Conner Flynn on January 29th, 2009

The Kyocera NS01 is the first real “belt” phoneThe Kyocera NS01 is not the best and most powerful phone available right now, but what it lacks in power, it makes up for in cutting edge geek fashion. The handset features an integrated belt, so it will hold up your pants while taking a call.

The NS01 features a 2.8 QVGA Screen, a 1.97MP camera, and e-wallet. Hey, at least you won’t lose your phone if it’s attached to your pants. There isn’t a ton of info, but I’m assuming it can detach easily while it is acting as a belt, because otherwise things could get comical real quick. Like if your friend needs to use your phone in an emergency, you would want to be able to quickly detach it. Because one guy on his knees, talking to someone in your crotch area in public doesn’t look good. It also doesn’t look good if you walk around hunched over talking to your own belt buckle as you try to pull it closer to no avail.

Lego announces gadget line for kids

Lego announces gadget line for kidsLego’s just announced that they will be teaming up with Digital Blue to bring out a line of digital cameras, PMPs, and walkie talkies for kids. Modders have been making gadgets out of Legos for awhile now, so I guess the company figured they would do the work for people. Kids at least.

The products feature the familiar “Lego” look, but they are not constructed out of actual bricks. We don’t have any specs yet, but these Lego gadgets are said to be arriving this summer, prices ranging from $19 – $60.

SATY MP3 player with breath analyzer

Posted in MP3 by Conner Flynn on January 11th, 2009

SATY MP3 player with breath analyzerSometimes companies invent gadgets for for the hell of it. They might throw together a device with two or three things that do not belong together, throw it at the public like a gadget-making monkey flinging feces and see if it sticks or not. Hey, how about a new MP3 player with a breath analyzer?

It’s for people who like tunes and need immediate info about their funky breath. Oh, they also added a flashlight, a radio, a mosquito repeller (In case your breath is attracting them), all with an MP3 player. For no damn reason! Just because! They are gambling on a real long shot here. But if there should be a demand for such a device…Oh man. Someone will be in the money.

Rubik’s Cube lamp is a puzzling light source

Posted in Lamps by Conner Flynn on December 28th, 2008

Rubik’s Cube lamp is a puzzling light sourceThe frustrating 80s puzzle we all grew up on makes for a cool light source. The Rubik’s Cube Light lamp by Eric Pautz is yet another variation on the popular cube. What’s cool about this one is that the light shines through and creates many colorful patterns.

If you already have the Rubiks cube alarm clock, you’d be remiss if this lamp doesn’t turn your eye. The gadget is available in two versions, color and transparent. The colored version reflects the colors that make the puzzle so popular and can display it scrambled and unscrambled. For a minimalist approach, there’s a transparent cube, which gives off a clear white light.

DIY colonoscopy is not a good New Year’s Resolution

Posted in Health by Conner Flynn on December 25th, 2008

DIY colonoscopy is not a good New Year’s ResolutionColonoscopies are not fun. They require nakedness with another man in the room(meaning your doctor). Even if you have a female doc, that’s just as bad. It’s all like a strange consensual alien abduction, only your memory isn’t erased. Sadly, they’re very necessary and can detect and prevent colon cancer. But there has to be a better way.

Wait. There is. Just do the procedure yourself with this harmless looking gadget that bears a lightning bolt and the name of a crap beer. A few beers before hand might be a good idea, before you get all up in your own business. And hey, you’ll feel better about it since you can use this thing in all kinds of dark tight places, not just your fat can.
