The USB Riff Rocker is essentially a USB controller for a game. You plug the little rocker into a free USB socket, download the two games off the Riff Rocker website, and then thrash your little fingers off.

Instant phone backup

Instant phone backup

How annoying is changing phones and having to get all your contacts onto your new handset? Moving all your contacts onto your phone memory or SIM, taking phones apart, swapping SIMS (if your new handset’s not locked), yadda yadda. It’s got a lot quicker with the use of software and a computer but don’t you just wish it could be instant? Well now, thanks to this little gadget, it is.

DIY:  Lego Movie Theater Features Working Projector

DIY: Lego Movie Theater Features Working Projector

In what is without a doubt the coolest Lego project I have seen in a long while, builder Ricardo Oliveira has built a Lego movie theater, complete with a tiny 24 fps projector. The biggest surprise was that the thing actually worked, had I not seen the video I might have dismissed it as April Fool’s day foolishness; it is real. The level of detail in the theater is incredible, right down to row designations on the seats and cups for the patrons.

Teafal Quick Cup Delux: Go Green when having a Cuppa

Teafal Quick Cup Delux: Go Green when having a Cuppa

The Tefal Quick Cup Delux has the capacity to get your tea steaming away in your mug in three seconds. Its ability to heat water so quickly means that it saves around 65 per cent of the energy used by a standard kettle. It has an adjustable tap, anti-splash spout and drip tray, which makes it easier to dispense water into either a short tea cup or a mega-mug.

Nespresso CitiZ Single Serve Coffee and Espresso Maker

Nespresso CitiZ Single Serve Coffee and Espresso Maker

The new Nespresso CitiZ espresso machine range takes its inspiration from the streets – literally – of major cities from around the globe. The colors of well-known focal points and objects, the design and shapes of buildings and landmarks, and the urban vibe and attitude of cities led Nespresso designers to create a new generation of Nespresso machines. The design is not only an improvement in looks but in the footprint of the machine as well. Compared to the Nespresso C100T Essenza – the Nespresso CitiZ takes up much less space in width, and has some new features that make it a standout.

Thumb Saver

Thumb Saver

The Thumb Saver does exactly what it says and will take a dangerous job and make it safe and simple. If you enjoy you’re DIY at home then this is a safety gadget which you must have. I really believe this is a handy gadget which will reduce many injuries in the home and workshop whilst using a hammer.

I like the WiFi Skype phone… infact I’m really quite tempted to get one!

MichelleMontana Says: April 10, 2009 at 9:10 am

Love the Director’s chair/messenger bag; I want to hike with it and then admire the view from a sweet, comfy chair :)

will Says: April 10, 2009 at 9:12 am

The Lego theater, easily. At first I thought he had just embedded a pocket projector into the piece, but when I realized that he had actually constructed a working projector system I was blown away. Truly a feat of Lego engineering.

Amy Says: April 10, 2009 at 9:15 am

I had to go with the thumb saver – the others are pretty cool but as someone who has hammered her thumb on many occasions, it is the most useful, and therefore coolest.

conedude13 Says: April 10, 2009 at 9:23 am

Hmmm….torn between the Director’s Chair Disguise as Messenger Bag and Thumb Saver i went with the chair because what’s the use of a Thumb Saver if you can’t sit down while you hammer?! :P

cara Says: April 10, 2009 at 9:29 am

there are many times in my cell phone possessing life that i would have killed for that easy backup/transfer tool.

Nick Says: April 10, 2009 at 9:32 am

The skype phone has a cord attached to the handset???? What’s the fun of that?

The chair is the best because it’s the most practical.

Jason Says: April 10, 2009 at 9:43 am

Safety gadgets always get my vote! The thumb saver is very practical.

Ryan Says: April 10, 2009 at 10:11 am

The video of the Lego theater was great. Suggest everone watch that, it sells it.

Skippy Says: April 10, 2009 at 10:32 am

Lego movie theatre is too cool.

Krysta Says: April 10, 2009 at 11:57 am

Instant Phone Backup isn’t a bad way to go.

Drew Says: April 10, 2009 at 3:17 pm

The phone backup would definitely be a nice tool to have.

Helard Says: April 10, 2009 at 3:30 pm

This gadget would save me hours when changing cell phone!!! (usually every year).

Feint Says: April 10, 2009 at 3:47 pm

I would simply like to announce that using the thumb saver will turn you into woman: be warned.

Jabberwock Says: April 10, 2009 at 3:52 pm

Lego Theater. Can’t get (much) cooler than that.

Jessica Says: April 11, 2009 at 9:31 am

The thumbsaver looks like it would be the most useful.

tomaz Says: April 11, 2009 at 10:17 am

thumb saver is awesome xD

Thyago Says: April 11, 2009 at 12:48 pm

Thumb Saver is perfect. Simple and useful.

Justin Says: April 12, 2009 at 1:11 pm

Nespresso CitiZ is a pretty great design, and one can never have too much java!

Jerry D. Says: April 12, 2009 at 1:24 pm

legos rock!

Tim Says: April 12, 2009 at 1:33 pm

USB Riff Rocker FTW.
Cause it reminds me of the pocket beatmania device

Selene M. Says: April 12, 2009 at 3:20 pm

We’ve paid to save these numbers when we’ve switched phones, so this would be a great item to have.

Ben Says: April 12, 2009 at 3:47 pm

Wifi-skype phone sounds sweet

Tyler Says: April 13, 2009 at 8:58 am

If I had a nickel for every time I’ve smashed my thumb.

Jose Joaquin Says: April 15, 2009 at 3:13 am

I voted for the “IPEVO WiFi Skype Phone” it’s very technological and I like the concept of screen.

John Says: April 16, 2009 at 12:08 pm

I definitely need the thumbsaver. I smash my thumb all the time.
