I ran across a really interesting analysis of Lego prices over the years. Spoiler: Apparently prices aren’t going up, they just seem high because when most people first got into Legos they were kids and didn’t have a sense of money/cost.

Christmas has passed, but I guess it is still technically the holiday season. I ran across this great video of the Chipmunks “Christmas Time is Here” song slowed down. You can hear what the chipmunk voice actors in the song actually sounded like (even though Dave sounds like the devil).
Another year has come and gone. We are quickly approaching Black Friday and then the more recently coined Cyber Monday, so that means it is time again for my list of holiday geek gift guides. I started putting this list together quite a few years back to help me find gifts for my friends and… Read more »
Need a site to waste 5 minutes on? Check out Silk, a website that lets you write in smokey patterns.
This is pretty awesome… Hotwheels sets a world record by racing two cards through a 6-story vertical loop.
I don’t know if this would be categorized as tech or not, but it’s really really cool. Designers Yonggu Do and Eunha Seo have created a concept for a chalkboard erasure that turns the dust that is erases into new pieces of chalk. Chalkeeper is a very innovative way to contain chalk dust (which causes allergic… Read more »
So as of right now, it doesn’t look like it’s going to be a white Christmas. If you really had your heart set on some snow, fear not. You can now make a run to the hardware store for some parts to build your very own snowmaker. Appropriately named Instructables member, MakeSnow has a very… Read more »
Well folks, it’s Cyber Monday again. You know what that means… it’s time for another iteration of my holiday geek gift guides. I started this quite a few years ago as a list of gift guides to help me find gifts for the people I shop for. Most of these are geared more towards geeks… Read more »
This is a slick little gadget. It’s a little green ball with cameras mounted all over it. You toss it into the air, and it created a spherical panorama at the apex of your toss. I wonder how careful you have to be when throwing this. I bet a little bit of spin would mess… Read more »
Want! (I just need some more french cuffed shirts)
Have you ever wanted to display your mood with a pair of giant cat ears? Well, the wait is now over. A Japanese project called Neurowear has created a set of robotic ears that react to your brain waves. The concept is a little odd, and I’m not sure if this is something I’d wear… Read more »
Playing with Hot Wheels just got a lot more fun (not that it wasn’t fun to begin with). The Hot Wheels Video Racer appeared at this year’s CES event. It’s a regular-sized Hot Wheels car, but it has a small point-of-view camera built into it, as well as a little monitor on the underside of… Read more »
The digital story of the Nativity. What if Google had been around 2000 years ago?
Another year has come and gone, and with it, comes another iteration of my holiday geek gift guide. The gift lists are chosen because they appeal to me, and the people I shop for. Feel free to let me know if I’ve missed any lists that you find helpful, and I’ll ad ’em to the… Read more »
I got a present in the mail yesterday straight from China. The tiny little macro/wide angle lens I purchased had finally arrived (apparently free shipping from China takes a while). Yes, you read that correctly. I purchased a lens for the crappy camera on my phone. I figured this was a $10 experiment to see… Read more »
