Thodio MacDec: Turns Your Mac Into A MacBook

We’ve all been taught to disconnect our gear from our computers ever since we started using bluetooth gear.  It comes in the form of keyboards, mice and pretty much everything else that you can connect to a computer.  It allows us to sit comfortably in front of our computers without having to strain because the length of the cords.  However, the fact is also that with more and more wireless gear, we’re starting to lose track of how we should sit in front of a ...

Encourage Your Kids To Doodle

Now Your Kids Can Be Creative Even When On The Go

I notice that my friends are always impressed with people who can draw.  Drawing comes easily for some people, while it takes others a long time to get the hang of it.  I love to draw and doodle.  I guess I was just lucky that I started learning how to do it at a young age.  I am not a natural artist, but I learned a few skills from taking workshops when I was 6 years old.  My parents saw that I liked making my ...

Social Media Highscool Yearbook Poster

The Social Media High School Yearbook Poster Of 2011

Right about now there shouldn’t be many people out there doubting the power and impact of Social Media.  I mean, Facebook speaks its own language and every business that adapts social networking has pretty much doubled their revenue in a period of time that before would have been completely impossible.  We make new contacts and new business partners.  We find new ways to promote, deliver and share the experiences we find online as well as offline.  Always being connected doesn’t mean you’re living your life ...

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 ...

Back To The Future: Photography That Will Blow Your Mind

I think we all have that certain moments in our life when time stands still.  If just for a second, we could bet our lives on that time halted just because of a picture taken of us.  If not for the aging, it was certainly that moment that defined our entire future.  It’s that very personality that our lives would mirror until the day when our footsteps no longer give any sound.  Admit it, you have that photo as well.  It brings back all the ...

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 ...
