Fuzzy felt greeting cards

by Al

fuz49_best-dad.jpg

This takes me back some, fuzzy felt, the re-usable picture drawing thingy-ma-jig, is now available in greeting card format. So instead of sending a plain old static card you can send a fuzzy felt version and let the (older) recipient relive their youth and move bits around, class! Fuzzy felt greeting cards cost £2.99 (~$6) from the fuzzy felt greeting card shop, surprisingly.

The Time Machine

Time Clock

If you didn’t get your hands on the pong clock and really want an amazing time-telling machine that also brings back memories from the good ol’ times, here’s something that’s even cooler: the Time Machine! We haven’t been able to find a cool clock that has some real mechanic action since the Wave Clock. This one takes the concept of marbles showing time even further, with an even cooler result: …

Another Cool Remote Control R2-D2 Unit

Remote Control R2 unit

We’ve certainly been spoilt rotten with Star Wars gadgets of late and this latest bit of Star Wars memorabilia brings back fond memories of my old figurine collection (which I sold to Paul Parnaby for £40 about 25 years or so ago). We’ve seen remote control R2D2 units before but this one is extra cool as it’s the size of the original collectors figure (they are action figures not dolls). …

Watto’s brother must live in North Hollywood, Norton Sales

by Fred

Sure, you remember Watto, he owned a little boy you’d later know as Darth. He sold a hyperdrive to some guynorton logo named Qui-Gon Jinn. He had hooves,, yet he could fly (umm,, no one ever mentions how oxymoronic this is,, it’s like a vegetarian with teeth like the baddies from Alien!)

 

Anyway, there’s a place called Norton Sales Inc. that makes Watto’s look like a dump.norton rockets yeahnorton rockets

 

Wait,, I mean, that it’s a dump full of old space junk.

 

No wait,, by old, I mean fairly old. You know, if you need a replacement X-15 XLR99, because the one you were using is all ‘sploded. Well now you’ve got the right place to go!

I’m pretty sure that the next time I head down south (probably for a wedding) I’ll be swinging by. Gadget destinations are typically pretty hard to come by, but when you find them,, well, you’ve just got to make the trip. pfft654169

Crochet Trimmed Watches

Crochet Trimmed Watches

We all know how first impressions count a lot, so having an original and stylish wristwatch can be one of the important points that adds more personality value to the owner. By original I mean unusual in terms of design and material, luckily enough, there aren’t many watches that use crochet or tapestry as their “substance”. Having in mind that conditional characteristic, I present you two alternative watches that will …

Sure it’s a blizzard, but the stove is on,, let’s blow hot air around!

by Fred

The Heatwave Wood Stove Fan from Northlineexpress.com which, from what I can tell, is where hot things come from. They’ve got fireplace and heating things of all kind. More importantly though, I’m focusing on the aftorementioned Heatwave Wood Stove Fan. Here’s the reason we’re looking at it,, it’s got a Stirling engine inside!!! So as not to confuse it with the crazy-insane commentator on the NFL Stirling Sharpe, it is …
