How Mobile Shopping Is Changing The World [Infographic]

It’s pretty hard to imagine that just a few years ago we didn’t really consider mobile shopping to be a big deal.  Almost no one did it, and if you did, you were always a little bit skeptical about it all.  If it wasn’t the payment method you were worried about, it was the connectivity and the speed by which we could get a website or data delivered to our devices.  However, in time, that has changed and changed quite a lot too I might ...

Martian Clock For Galaxy Time

How To: Make A Planetary Clock For Your Next Trip To Mars

I have written a lot of DIY articles on Bit Rebels, but I think this one has the most in-depth tutorial I’ve ever seen. Alexander Avtanski built a clock that can tell time on any planet according to how it rotates. It is all part of his Mars Clock Project. My first question is, how does a person even come up with an idea to build such a thing? My second question is, how does a person test this to make sure it’s working properly? ...

Computers: An Awesome Chronological Timeline [Infographic]

If you are a geek then you know it is absolutely necessary for you to at least know some things when it comes to computers.  For example, if you don’t know what the Commodore 64 was capable of or if you have never marveled over the graphics that the Amiga 500 could generate, you have a few miles to go until you can call yourself a true technology geek.  Sure, there are geeks within pretty much every area you can think of, but to be ...

French Kissing Video Game Controller

The Kiss Controller: Video Game Controlled By Smooches

Well dang, this could be better than Kinect! Instead of using your body as the controller, you use your tongue. Ok, maybe it’s not better than Kinect, but it still looks like a lot of fun. This little gadget combines two of life’s guilty pleasures, kissing and playing video games. That’s right, this video game is controlled by French kissing. According to creator Hye Yeon Nam’s website, this Kiss Controller is a game input device that controls the direction and speed of a bowling ball ...

Exorcist and The Social Network

The Exorcist & The Social Network Explained In 60 Seconds

It seems like nowadays for every popular movie, you can find a mini version on YouTube. Sometimes it is just a spoof, but if it’s well thought out, and short, those little videos can be very entertaining. For example, when a Japanese woman explained Titanic in less than 2 minutes, it was awesome. The graphics alone made it worth watching. The Jameson Empire Awards is an entity that celebrates these mini video versions of films, and they’ve recently released their shortlist of videos which will ...

Time Is Money: The True Cost Of Running Late [Infographic]

So there you are, about to start a new project, and the prognosis is good for a timely completion.  Everyone involved is positive and thinking it’s going to be great fun just to get started.  You have carefully planned everything, everything except a delay.  As time progresses, you start seeing things that point in a disturbing direction.  Your carefully planned project will most likely run late.  Why?  Well, that’s the thing, and it’s not really clear.  It’s the collectively embraced mantra “It doesn’t matter if ...

Tofu Facts In An Infographic

Do You Really Know What Tofu Is? [Infographic]

I admit it. Tofu completely freaks me out. It’s one of those bizarre foods that many people, including me, don’t really understand. If I had to describe tofu, I would say it’s firm but squishy little blocks of an edible substance that changes taste depending on how you eat it. Eeeww… However, I realize that my understanding of tofu really comes from my own ignorance. I’ve never taken the time to learn about it until today. There seem to be a lot of misconceptions out ...

Sponge Bob Lego Terminator Build

SpongeBob Lego Terminator Never Gets Old

Creativity must be the biggest word in the dictionary.  No, really, it must be because there is not another word that fits so many things that we don’t know about yet.  Do you know what I mean?  Sure, infinity is a pretty big one as well, but it doesn’t fit the word creativity.  Creativity; however, does fit the word infinity.  Yeah, it’s somewhat of a paradox there I know.  You can elaborate on that idea for years without reaching any kind of solution.  It’s somewhat ...

iPhone Hoodies: Dress Your iPhone In Style

Have you noticed that people get really, really attached to their iPhones? I switched from an Android phone to an iPhone earlier this month, and I’m already completely attached to mine. I take him… err… it everywhere. I feel lost without my iPhone, and I know a lot of people feel the same way. Since our smartphones connect us with the outside world via Twitter, Facebook, and many other sites, they truly become our companions. We’ve all heard the cute saying, “I love my computer ...

Diner Dash Game on Facebook

Now You Can Play Diner Dash On Facebook

When I was a young girl, aside from playing teacher, I would always play diner girl with my sister.  We would bring out our tea sets and our little tables and chairs and play waitress and customer all day.  We had so many different types of tea sets and cooking play sets and even a little baking oven that could really bake small pies.  We also had a small play house in the garden that my dad built for us to play in so we ...

NES Beads Stop Motion Animation

NES Beads: The World Of NES Games In Stop Motion Beads

It’s been done for many years now, and it comes in several different forms and shapes.  The materials used are always different, but the technique used is the same. You move around some stuff, take a picture, and then you do that again a couple thousand times until you have your finished movie.  Even Tim Burton himself has done it many times to create some of his legendary mystical movies.  Usually (if we’re stepping out of the movie industry for a second), the stop motion ...

Lessons Leaving Your Comfort Zone

5 Lessons To Learn When Leaving Your Comfort Zone

I recently left home, and now I live approximately 8,900 miles away.  I know from experience this kind of change takes a lot of adjusting.  When I decided to take the job in Cincinnati, Ohio, I knew that I would be leaving my comfort zone.  I grew up with my family around me all the time, and it is something I cherish.  Being in a place where I know every twist and turn on the road is where I have always felt comfortable.  Even simple ...

A Chocolate Room In Lithuania

Willy Wonka Style: A Room Made Entirely Of Chocolate

Oh my goodness, I would be in heaven in a room like this. Of course, it’s not in the States; it’s in Lithuania, figures. A shopping mall in the capital of Lithuania, Vilnius, built a 17 square meter room made entirely of chocolate. It is designed to look like a traditional sitting room, and everything is made of chocolate, and I mean… everything. This includes the chairs, the lettuce on the plates (green chocolate), the cat sitting on the chair, the champagne glasses, the forks, ...
