Biometric door lock

I’ve been looking at devices around the home recently and I stumbled upon these biometric door locks. The concept is not new of course but it’s only in the last few years that they’ve been available as a plug and play (drill and play?) package for home installations. I’ve seen a few different models and as I was looking at the specs I noticed one glaring fact – the cheap …

TIX LED Clock now in the UK

by Al

I remember reporting on this cool clock last month but with me being based in the UK I could only get one by importing it from the States (ThinkGeek to be precise).

Illuminated Sinks *Confused*

by Al

Illuminated Sink

As gadgets go many are pretty pointless but still fun and useful in some kind of quirky way. I’m struggling to find a use (beside the obvious) of these sinks that light up, some may say they look cool whilst I’m not so sure I’d class an LED illuminated sink as cool.

Garden speakers

by Marc

Rock speaker

I’ve been to quite a few barbeques this summer and invariably the music is provided by leaving the stereo on and opening the doors to let the sound outside. Which is OK, as long as the food isn’t 100 yards away at the bottom of the garden; this tends to lead to a very loud stereo and some very annoyed neighbours! Obviously someone else came across the same problem, and …
