Hi There!

Let us apologize to all those whose dreams of cooking flat foods in their PCs were crushed. We are so very sorry. :-p

LED Binary Watch

LED Binary Watch

An Obfuscated Approach To Time Telling

Hmmm, can monkeys read binary? Well you never know, but geeks certainly can be trained to read it. And why send a simian to do something a geek can do? Once you learn to decode the binary time format represented by the 10 LEDs on this watch, you'll be well on your way to dazzling all the other monkeys of the code variety. And besides, won't it be fun the next time some guy asks you "what time is it?" and you can enjoy their bewildered expression when you flash your wrist emblazoned with glowing binary? Yes it will, you ponder as you take your last bite of cheese, yes it will...

Using their unique peg-and-hole along with tooth-and-groove combinations you can build colorful and complex creations effortlessly in either 2-D or 3-D. Arriving with a whooping 2800 pieces in twenty different colors your set of PixelBlocks is quite literally procrastination in a box. Never again be bored at your desk!

Nyko AirFlow Mouse - Combat Sweaty Palms During Gaming Sessions

Surely you've heard the sad tale of our troubled hero 'rocketsauce', who found himself mercilessly fragged at the hands of his arch enemy during a recent deathmatch session? His hands were so sweaty from his efforts (and the massive amounts of caffeine he'd ingested), that his hand slipped from his mouse right as he had the enemy in his sights. If only he had a precision gaming mouse that kept his hand dry with a gentle breeze of air whist he gamed, he might still be the champion...

Earth's Most Powerful Hand Gyroscope - Now In Neon Blue

We would likely have to agree that most pieces of exercise equipment make the user look quite silly. Despite attempts to block it out, we can probably all remember the commercials for the ThighMaster. But the Powerball Neon Gyroscope, with its bright glowing neon blue LED, almost looks too cool to be something useful. Not only is it a great hand and forearm exerciser (it can provide gentle rehab for carpal tunnel, RSI, arthritis, tendonitis ) but it's also a compact display of Newtonian physics - angular momentum, centripetal force and more. It is the earth's most powerful hand gyroscope and capable of rotations up to 15,000 rpm. Take it for a spin...

Digital Dream Quantum 3.1 Optical Camera

Digital Dream Quantum 3.1 Optical Camera

With its 3.1MP resolution and 3x optical zoom, the Quantum 3.1 can capture images up to 2048 x 1536 in size. Yet it's still remarkably compact.
