Telescopic iPhone 4 Lens Shoots the Moon

Don’t get me wrong. The new 5 megapixels sensor of the iPhone 4 is a vast improvement over other iPhone models, but it just doesn’t do the trick for taking some of the detailed, intricate photos some of us enjoy taking.

Fallout 3 replica maker Ryan Palser continues his past work with his A3-21 Plasma Rifle creation, beautifully recreating the iconic weapon from the modern post-apocalyptic RPG classic.

Better Book Titles Makes Judging Books By Their Covers Okay

Finally, books made to be judged by their covers. Before I had a life or a career, I loved reading. There was nothing I liked better than curling up with a great book. Now, I just don’t know how people find the time. I read for maybe 45 minutes before I go to sleep, but half of that time is ...

Homer Simpson iPhone Vinyl Sticker: Mmm… Smartphone

Etsy seller Apple Jam designed this genius Homer Simpson iPhone sticker. While I’ve never seen Homer eat a piece of fruit, I’m not quite sure this counts. Mmm… technolicious. Thought we bet he’ll be saying “Do’h” when it comes out the other end. Shattered glass? No thank you. The sticker is sold out for now, but if you bug Apple ...

Banana Boats For the Maritime-Loving Monkey

Not only is this the perfect way to adorn the cage of any monkey that’s developed a love for maritime history, but if bearded children folk singers are to be trusted, can also make calls to Beijing-jing-jing-jing.

FaceTime as Predicted in 1910

A relic from the prophetic Hildebrandt chocolates collection of foreboding predictions for the future, this artist clearly had no idea what he was talking about. For one, those video conversations are clearly taking place over a 3G connection. Secondly… flying cars? Come on, that’s crazy talk. All I can say is that this woman must have said something mighty rude ...
