HO Scale Humans!

I found this today on Gizmodo. It’s pretty sweet. It’s a video of an Australian beach, using a tilt-shift lens to take off centered stills. When strung together in a video, it makes everyone look like they just stepped into an HO sized train layout.

Ooh, This Would Be Nice At Work!

usb_fridge_front.jpgI found this cute little gadget at Gizmodo. I would love to have this at my desk. I don’t like leaving my soda in the fridge here since we have little thieves running around the office, but then my soda is warm come lunch time! Gotta have something to keep my Pepsi Lime stash cold at work! Might have to think about it next paycheck! 🙂

Oddities from Gizmodo – April 17, 2007

It’s time for another roundup of odd and interesting things that Gizmodo has found to make our life more productive (or at least more entertaining)!

To start it off, here is an interesting USB hub and flash sticks from those kooky japanese! 🙂

Ever wanted to play with a lifesize version of the classic game Mousetrap?

Never fret about being without pen and paper again! This handy little pen has it all!

This could prove to be a fun little to for the geek in your family! It’s the next step in the evolution of water powered vehicles. It would be fun to have a race between this and my steam engine tractor! Of course the high tech look tells me that it would probably win.

Ever get frustrated with that traditional closet hanger? Why not try this new version. Make your closet a work of art even.

Blog-O-Sphere Tid-Bits – March 11, 2007

I have a few comments on the “From the Archive” feature, so I have put up a poll in the sidebar to get your feedback. I will leave it up for a couple weeks to see what people’s thoughts are.

On with the tid-Bits! 🙂

Kevin answers the question about which one was a lie… and, well, I was wrong. 😦

Howard has posted his rant on the whole Ann Coulter controversy. And it isn’t necessarily the stance that most have been taking, but I would have to say I agree with him. Looks like Best Gay Blogs thought it was a worthy article as well!

My boyfriend, Dan, tells of a great story about a co-worker that seems to not be able to control her hands… Meet Giggle Crotch!

Spooky brings us a cute picture of their newest little one.

What happens when you are in a car and it’s hit by lightning? Gizmodo brings us a video from UK’s Top Gear.

Life After Coffee brings another great video. This time it is a video showing just how much effort one guy put into being able to be extra lazy at the big games.

I guess that is it for this week. 🙂

Weekly Blog-O-Sphere Tid-Bits – February 24, 2007

Fastlad brings us a disturbing yet highly comical advertisement for a Dirt Mall.

The Hermit talks about his Hike up Chate Mesa in the snow! He has some great pictures from the hike on his Flikr page, looking at them, it’s hard to believe they’re from Colorado. It looks so different!

Gizmodo links to a video to bring Shut Down Day (a month away) to our attention. March 24, 2007. Can you turn your computer off for a day?

Fresh of finishing Lego Star Wars II, I find anything Lego of interest right now 🙂 Like this handy toilet paper dispenser on Gizmodo, or this fun Lego inspired desk.

Still from Gizmodo, Here is a fun little article showing why the Wii is taking dominance in the US, and from a source that many might find unlikely!

Last week, I had you all send well wishes to Amber and her cat. This week, I am asking you to send those wishes on to Andy and Mandrake over at Spicy Cauldron. Mandrake had to have his leg amputated this past week.

Well, I think that is it for this week. Next week’s Tid-Bits will be coming live from my new site set to debut on Friday, March 2nd, 2007!

Oddities from Gizmodo

The following are all bizarre items of interest I have seen on Gizmodo over the past week.

So, I have been meaning to post about these, and just for fun, I bouht one for Dan today. It’s called Tooth Tunes, a new toothbrush that plays an mp3 for 2 minutes that you can only hear when brushing. It uses your bones to send the music to your brain. I had to try it out, and while the audio isn’t like the best quality, it is quite funny, and I am sure guaranteed to get your kids brushing!

This is one bridge I don’t think I will ever be able to make it out on to! It’s a glass bridge being built out over the Grand Canyon!
