Table Connect multi-touch iPhone desk is awesome

Posted by John Kilhefner Categories: Accessories, Apple, Videos,

Ever wanted to play beer pong on an iPhone? No, we mean literally, on an iPhone? Apparently, the folks down at TableConnect did, and imagined their vision to life by using a dedicated app on a jailbroken iPhone and a 58-inch multi-touch table. The end result is a table that replicates the iPhone display. The table works surprisingly fast and allows for all the typical hand gestures to work, such as swiping and pinching. Hit that play button above for a look at it.

Dreamcast VMU case for iPod Nano

ipod nano dreamcast vmu

There’s still a bit of Dreamcast nostalgia left around in the air circulating from it’s recent 11th anniversary and revival on Xbox Live and PSN. So what else can you do to pay tribute to that great system that died before its time? How about encasing your new in the VMU? It may be a bit bulky in comparison to the nano, but its a cool way of showing off your Sega pride and general geekery. Imagine the look on peoples’ faces when you pull a VMU out of your pocket and nonchalantly start touching the screen and playing music. Priceless.

Check out the video after the jump.

Let the Apple TV hacking begin!

Apple TV jailbreak

Looks like Eric Sadun over at TUAW has found that the new is definitely hackable, as the device is instantly recognizable by PhoneView (an OS X app that let’s you browse the disk of your devices.) Since the Apple TV runs iOS and has been found to pack 8GB of storage, aside from the fact that the Apple TV version os iOS has already been hacked by the iOS Dev-Team using their SHAtter jailbreak, it’s a no-brainer that we will be seeing third-party apps on this thing at some point in the very near future.

This Week on TV (7/12-7/18)

MONDAY (7/12)
  • Kid in a Candy Store (Food, 8pm):  “Creative cakes are sampled, including deep-fried cupcake sundaes from a sweets shop in Somerville, Mass.” Desserts for people who need to multi-task.
  • Cake Boss (TLC, 9pm):  “A 6-ft. cake in the shape of a sub sandwich is made for a local deli’s 100th anniversary.” Unfortunately, Jared Fogle won’t be able to eat it.
  • Warren the Ape (MTV, 10:30pm):  “Warren pretends he’s gay, thinking it will do wonders for his acting career.” He clearly doesn’t subscribe to Rupert Everett‘s newsletter.

Michelle Obama on Iron Chef America

(Make sure to check out TV Envy’s Programming Schedule.)


MONDAY (12/28)
  • Dog Whisperer (Nat. Geographic, 8pm):  “Cesar goes Down Under to help some Aussies tame their problem pooches.” Dingoes aren’t the only things babies should be worried about.

Video: DIY Laser Lighter

Posted by Mark Rollins Categories: Mods / Hacks, Videos,

I’m not a smoker, and I don’t carry a lighter around in case anyone needs a light.  However, I could totally see myself with a miniature laser lighter.  In fact, if you want to build one, feel free to grab a BIC Lighter, a blue laser diode, two 1.5 cell batteries, two magnets, and check Instructables for details on how to assemble a Cheapy Laser Lighter Burner.

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Accessories, USB, Storage, Videos,

There is a never ending run of drives, many of them made out of everyday objects that have been gutted. This one, made by “laxap,” is composed of a real cigar, a small flash drive, some wire, 2 red LEDs, a resistor, and extension cable, paper and tape. When in use the end turns a bright red. You can get step-by-step instructions as well as a sample of his other USB creations that include the use of a highlighter, Slim Jim can and light bulb.
