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.

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.

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

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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?! 😛

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

  6. 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.

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

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