One of the dreamers behind this Magical Soldering Unicorn, mister Sean Bonner, said in april of this year that "The value of something like this is pretty obvious." I think he's completely right, and not just in a "OMG THAT IS JUST SUPER" sort of way. Think of all the traffic the site he's working with is getting now, all because of this relatively simple DIY hack on a piece of plastic and metal - together, these bits form an alliance that is truly synergistic.
I always figured that the unicycle was the invention of a man who was into self mutilation. What other method of transport can you crush your gonads and your face on at the same time? A dude has invented a new unicycle device called the FlyRad that is sort of like a unicycle with training wheels.
If you're an avid user of Twitter, then you know that updating the micro-blogging service is very important on a day-to-day basis. And if you're a dog owner, then there's probably been a few times where you've felt compelled to tweet something about your lovable animal companion. But, what if you could let your dog tweet on its own? Thanks to a new gadget called the Puppy Tweets medallion, you now can.

For some people, it's the little things that matter most. For example, if you've ever lived in a house with someone who would always get on your case about leaving the refrigerator door open for too long, you know that every drop of energy matters. If you've moved away from that person, but you want to make sure that you're not wasting any energy by leaving the fridge door open for too long, then perhaps the Fridgeezoo Animals should be something you look into.
One way to look at getting older, is the fact that while you progress in age, the technology that makes our world interesting is getting older, and better, each and every day. The other way to look at getting older, is to see yourself in the mirror every day, and notice all those wrinkles, lines, and other obvious indicators that you're racking up the calendar days. If you inherently think about the latter more often than the former, then perhaps these anti-aging glasses from Japan were manufactured just for you.
My daughter is five and she loves these stretchy rubber band bracelets that look like animals and other things when you take them off. She trades them with her friends and wears them all the time. She is a rubber band bracelet ninja though. You never know when she will jump out from behind something, yell "Hiii Yaaaa", shoot you in the face with one of the bands, and run off laughing hysterically.
When I was younger, I thought Silly Putty was the coolest invention ever. You could use it to copy your favorite comics by sticking it to the newspaper, it could be made into all kinds of shapes, and it bounced. My enthusiasm for the material was dampened after a freak Silly Putty accident left me with a black eye.
Cats plus lasers probably sounds like some people's idea of the best thing to do with the LOLCat meme, but for FroliCat it's a business model. Their BOLT promises to keep your household feline (or dog) active, by giving it a tireless laser dot to chase, and Gear Diary have been testing it out.
