Electronic Roll-up Go Board

Electronic Roll-up Go Board

Go may not be very popular here in the US, but that didn’t stop me from actually taking a few lessons when I was a kid (ladies, quit knocking down my door). Plus, it didn’t stop this guy from designing an electronic roll-up Go board. Shaped like a roll of…

If there are such people, here’s some radiation-proof underwear that’ll keep those balls protected from deadly radiation, keeping their…

Keep spirits high, or level, with these cuffs

Keep spirits high, or level, with these cuffs

There are some very nerdy cufflinks out there — keyboard keys spring to mind — that are just a bit too uncultured for mine, but these spirit levels cufflinks are all geek chic. This same site has more spirit level jewellery too, necklaces to earrings, as well as other nice…

Apple IIs, As Explained By 7-Year-Old

Apple IIs, As Explained By 7-Year-Old

There is absolutely nothing wrong with this retro show in which children school adults on operating computers…at least for the first 2 minutes or so when it’s still funny. I have a feeling that if we look really closely, we could spot a few Gizmodo readers on the “wiz kid”…

Red Zune in the Wild

Red Zune in the Wild

I spy a red Zune! I spy a red Zune! And it doesn’t look like the work of those guys who paint Zunes red now! I’m not that into this gen of Zune, but I really do put for the effort for the ten readers who are kicking themselves for…

8-core NextDimension Briefcase MegaComputer

8-core NextDimension Briefcase MegaComputer

The 8-core NextDimension Pro and Evo really push the envelope of portability. But then again, the computers have 8 freakin’ cores. Based upon the Intel(R) Xeon(R) Processor 5300 Series, the systems sip only 100W of processing power despite their beefy specs. And the briefcase-sized form comes in handy when you…

R2-D2 on a Shirt!

R2-D2 on a Shirt!

FACT: R2-D2 is the best character from the Star Wars franchise. FACT #2: T-shirts are the best form of fashion. Logically speaking, the rest kind of explains itself. We especially like that the R2-D2 hoodies and tees by Pleb because they tell of a more world-weary version of our favorite…

HP LED Laptops Confirmed for Q3 2007

I’ve been waiting for this good news from HP for awhile: their laptops are finally, officially, and definitely going to get LEDs inside of LCDs. Judging from family names, the two confirmed machines, the HP Compaq 2510p and 2710 tablet (not the laptop above), they likely aren’t high end beauties…

Is It Me, Or Are TVs Getting Friendlier?

Is It Me, Or Are TVs Getting Friendlier?

On my recent visits to see the latest TVs, I started to get the sneaking suspicion that the interfaces were getting more user friendly. I mean, that isn’t hard: TVs have notoriously bad interfaces, and unless you are Brian Lam or a member of the AVS Forum, you might have…

Rumour: Danger Working on GPS in Sidekicks

Rumour: Danger Working on GPS in Sidekicks

An internship job listing over at Danger, Inc. spills the beans about what could be some future GPS integration into Danger’s devices—namely, the Sidekicks. Whether that means it’s going to be in Sidekick 4’s featureset or as a separate add-on for Sidekick 3’s, we’re still unsure. What we are sure…
