Big Hero 6 Baymax Lamp Illuminates With Light, Not Medical Advice

Despite being completely vulnerable to attacks from safety pins, the Baymax robot from last year’s Big Hero 6 was just about the best sidekick a kid could have — mostly because it was skilled at treating skinned knees and other injuries. This LED lamp version of Baymax isn’t quite as talented, but it can ensure a kid who’s afraid of the dark will sleep through the night.


A 49-Port USB Hub Still Isn't Enough

So how many ports on a USB hub are too many? There’s no answer to that question because no matter how many you have, you’ll always need at least one more. But Brando’s new 49-port USB charging hub should keep you satisfied for at least a little while.


Turn Your Unused MicroSD Cards Into Invisible Extra MacBook Storage

Sticking an SSD drive inside the MacBook Air helped Apple create one of the sleekest laptops you can buy. The tradeoff was limited storage, since SSDs don’t boast the same capacity as regular hard drives at any sort of sane price. Thankfully, there’s also an SD card slot you can use to boost your MBA’s storage, but instead of grabbing one of those expensive trimmed SD cards to sit flush inside, consider Brando’s cheap microSD adaptor instead.


A Lightsabre Battery Lets You Battle Intergalactic Power Emergencies

If you had to pinpoint one common feature of all the backup batteries on the market, it would probably be their uninspired brick-like form factor. There are exceptions, though, but none as elegant and civilised as Brando’s new lightsabre-themed portable backup battery.


LED Blades Turn This RC Toy Helicopter Into An Airborne Messenger

Sometimes well-placed propaganda is the strongest weapon of all. So the folks at Brando have come across what could be the most dangerous RC toy ever devised, armed with an extra spinning rotor that displays custom messages. Because a foam arrow to the eye doesn’t hurt nearly as much as the revelation that “Jason smells like poop.”


Why Haven't Mugs Told Us The Coffee's Temperature Until Now?

If you have $38 to spare and a few weeks to wait for delivery, Brando has a new temperature sensing travel mug that guarantees you’ll never again burn your mouth on scalding hot coffee — or accidentally sip a stale brew that’s gone cold.


With This Iron Man Mark VII Case, Your iPhone Can Join The Avengers

Leave it to Brando to add one of the most obscene iPhone cases we’ve ever seen to its online catalogue. If you love the iPhone 5’s minimalist design, you’re going to hate it. But if you love The Avengers, particularly Iron Man, you’ve just found your next iPhone case.


Adding Spinning Dials To A Rubik's Cube Is Downright Evil

Unless you’re some kind of prodigy who can solve one while juggling, making pancakes and whistling Dixie, the Rubik’s cube is already difficult enough. So why on earth would someone go and add a numbered, spinning dial to each side? That’s just sadistic.


A Memo Board Alarm Clock For Your Late-Night Inspiration

At first glance, it’s easy to dismiss this memo board alarm clock as being just another piece of technocrappery from Brando. But how often do you wake in the middle of the night with a brilliant idea you don’t want to forget?


It's Time To Stop With The Ridiculous Camera Lens Gadgets

If you hang with a tech-minded crew, a high-end DSLR with a giant telephoto lens is definitely an object of lust and envy you’re going to want to show off. And when Canon handed out those telephoto lens thermoses at the Olympics a few years ago, of course photographers and gadget aficionados went nuts over them. But enough is enough.
