If you have OSX try starting ‘TextEdit’ and then start typing:

File:///

On the third ‘/’ your app will crash.

1/14/2013 |

For $50 you could get yourself a 1/4 scale Gollum / Smeagol replica figure. It’s fully articulated and features 25 points of articulation. It’s quite detailed with liver spots on skin, scrappy hair, wrinkles, rotting teeth, etc. The replica figure can balance in his signature crouch without falling and measures roughly 10″ (25 cm).

iTypewriter – a typewriter for the iPad

9/3/2012 |

The iTypewriter by Austin Yang is a fully functional typewriter module for the iPad. Very geeky and it looks like there’s probably only one of them in existance. Anyway I thought it was a quite cool project, check it out over at Austin’s site for more images and a video.

These soaps are of course intended as a gift but if you intend to actually use any of them, I’m pretty sure that they actually works as a soap as well. Choose from replica soap handcontrols modeled from Sega Mega Drive, SNES, NES, XBOX 360 and PS3.
