House Made From Books Bookshelves

Architecture: A Cozy House Created From Bookshelves

As we all know, now that we are experiencing the era of the iPad and Kindle, traditional books are becoming less and less popular. As a matter of fact, even some elementary schools are replacing books with iPads. I have a friend who just got her packet for attending University in the fall, and it came complete with an iPad 2 and a list of e-books to order for her classes. People are handling this major transition in different ways. There are those who always ...

Smartphone Case Bottle Opener

Schweeet! The iPhone Case That Opens Beer Bottles

Some people are very motivated to open their beer bottles. If it doesn’t have a twist-off cap, it can be really frustrating not to be able to find a bottle opener. I totally get that. I remember when Misty wrote about this robot t-shit with a built in bottle opener. I almost ordered one of those, but in the end I decided it was more nerdy than geeky. Then we featured the remote control with a built-in beer bottle opener. I betcha that is a ...

Yoda and Darth Vader Vegetables

Creative Star Wars Inspired Vegetable Carvings

Have you ever noticed how much Star Wars inspires food designers and party planners? Now that I think about it, Star Wars pretty much inspires all geeks, whatever their interests may be. I remember when I wrote the article Geektastic Collection Of Star Wars Inspired Party Foods. If you are a Star Wars fan and a foodie, you will love that massive collection of creative Star Wars food designs. Today I’d like to share another style with you, which could definitely be added to that ...

Transparent Ants Drink Colored Liquid

Science: Beautiful Rainbow Colored Ant Stomachs

In the 5th grade, I tried hard to come up with a cool science experiment for my class. I ended up making perfume from flowers, which was a little boring. If I had known about this, it would have been the perfect science experiment to impress all my geeky elementary school friends. Did you know there are some ants that have transparent stomachs? I didn’t. How random is that? Dr. Mohamed Babu, from India, collected some of these ants and fed them food color infused ...

Ordinary People As Superheroes

Superheroes In Real Life (And Yes, They Have Masks)

Like most kids, when I used to watch Superman and Wonder Woman in cartoons, I asked my mom if superheroes existed in real life. When she said no, it was almost as devastating as learning that there is no such thing as a man dressed in a red suit who comes down the chimney to deliver presents made by elves. I eventually recovered and got over it. I suppose when kids these days ask their parents that same question, the answer might be different. Apparently ...

The Evolution Of Portable Music

The Evolution Of Portable Music [Infographic]

With the mp3 file format came a whole new revolution of technology and also a lot of whining from the record companies. Being a writer and producer myself, I particularly remember when the record and publishing companies started to blame their lousy innovative thinking regarding dropping sales due to mp3 sharing. In a way, they were right, but I also know that multinational record companies actually talked to Napster themselves to distribute their new music to get a bigger spread. It’s all unconfirmed; however, since ...

America Love Gadgets More Family

Study Finds Americans Love Their Gadgets More Than Family

Hmm… I’m not so sure I even want to be writing this article because it’s kinda sad. Of course, that is assuming this information is true. Sometimes when we see these studies, the information is based on a survey of a very small group of people in an isolated area of the country, so the results can’t be considered reliable when applying them generally over a huge group of people (in my opinion). However, this was in the WSJ and the study was conducted by ...

First Kid On The Block

The Cost Of Being The First Kid On The Block [Infographic]

I have pointed it out many times before, but I suppose another time won’t hurt us a bit. Technology is rapidly progressing, and it isn’t unusual for us to buy something at the store only to get back home, install it, and find out that what we just bought is actually yesterday’s hype. It happens to many people on a daily basis. There’s actually nothing wrong with it, and usually our gadget is more than capable of working without being the newest version or breed. ...

Forty Harrison Ford Illustrations Chart

40 Harrison Ford Faces Illustrated

Have you seen the new Harrison Ford movie Cowboys & Aliens yet? I haven’t. Apparently, the story goes something like this… In 1873, a spaceship arrives in Arizona with aliens who want to take over the earth. They decide to start by conquering the Wild West region, which is where they find a feisty group of cowboys they try to defeat. I normally love Harrison Ford movies, but for some reason, I’m just not super pumped about seeing this one. I haven’t heard a lot ...

Online Transparency vs Anonymity Infographic

Transparency vs. Anonymity: The Rules Of The Online World

Networking in today’s online climate can not only be a way to express yourself with the utmost transparency, but it can also lead to some rather unwanted side effects. People with the intention of causing you harm can twist and revert your accountability using tools that will have anyone on their knees before the truth actually comes out. Being completely transparent can also bring malicious people who stalk you to the degree where they are actually causing you inner stress by continuously treading in your ...

100,000 Facebook Profile Pictures Showcase

Facebook Faces: What 100,000 Profile Pictures Looks Like

I must admit, for a couple of years, I wasn’t much of a Facebook user. I didn’t even have an account with that giant social networking service. As embarrassing as that actually is, I think I am now becoming addicted to the thing just like almost everyone else who uses it. With their 650 million users, it’s hard to understand why the entire world hasn’t connected yet. As of today, I have now been on Facebook for about a year and a half or something, ...

20 Captivating Photos Shot At Exactly The Right Moment

There are some things in life that make me feel dated (notice I didn’t use the word “old” LOL). For example, sending a fax, writing in cursive (with a pen) and talking on any phone with a cord (and twirling it around my fingers) are all things that kids born in 2011 might never have the opportunity to experience. I remember back in the days when people would say, “I wish I had my camera with me today, I could have taken some great pictures.” ...

Casulo Room In A Box

Insane Living: A Whole Room In A Compact Box

The world is getting ever smaller they say. As a little kid, I never used to quite understand what the adults who said that were talking about, but as I grew older, I understood that it didn’t have to do with the world as a physical object. With all the new technology, infrastructure and transportation, we see ever shorter delivery times. This in turn makes the world feel smaller since it will not take us a week to go from Europe to the U.S. by ...
