It is not everyday that you purchase a pair of speakers in which you need to assemble the various parts yourself, that is for sure! Of course, it is always a whole lot easier purchasing a brand new speaker without having to go through the motions of fixing the various parts together, but where is the fun in that for all of you hands-on folks? The $24.99 Design Out Loud! Cardboard Speakers sounds (pardon the pun) like a whole lot of fun, where this entire kit will come with its fair share of markers and paint to boot.
This set of two small speakers (don’t expect to use the to rock out an entire room, that is for sure!) will help you unleash your creative juices as each design perfectly reflects the music on the mix and the mood it creates. This special kit has been designed for DIY creativity at its best, where you will make use of the markers, paint, and others to create a unique and personal set of mobile speakers. Once you are done, just plug their 3.5mm standard audio jack into your PC or device and you’re good to go.

There is nothing quite like the right kind of music to perk you up — as music is well known to sooth the soul, or perhaps provide the right kind of inspiration. Well, if you think that you would not want to enjoy your music with a pair of earphones in the long run in fear of ruining your hearing, perhaps you might be interested in checking out what Braven has to offer with their latest Braven BRV-Blade, which is a new standard when it comes to outdoor Bluetooth adventure speakers that have been specially forged with toughness, aggressive design, and superior HD (high definition) audio.
The all-new Braven BRV-Blade is perfect when it comes to wet, wild, and extreme power sports — ranging from dune-buggying to jet skiing, snowmobiling or 4×4 racing in the mud. After all, the Braven BRV-Blade does boast of tank-like durability alongside a shockproof ABS construction which will allow it to shrug off spills, splashes or even dunks, and this is made possible thanks to its IPX7 waterproof rating.
The Braven BRV-Blade will be part of the company’s highly acclaimed outdoor audio series, where it boasts of an ultra-rugged design and impressive HD audio. Special in just about every form, the military, jet black styling securely conceals dual omni-directional passive sub-woofers that will surely impress with rich sound and impressive bass, courtesy of Braven’s Bass Optimization technology.
It is also slim enough to fit into a backpack or glove compartment, where there is a built-in speakerphone and a 4,000 mAh power bank that allows it to charge USB devices, not to mention carry enough juice to pump music out for 22 hours on a full charge. There is also an integrated bottle opener that will allow you to secure the speaker to a range of surfaces and all-terrain vehicles. Expect the Braven BRV-Blade to retail for $199.99 a pop.

When it comes to telling the time, there are many different ways of doing so, although the sundial has been more or less out of fashion for quite a while already ever since the clock and watch have made their presence known. Of course, you might want to wear a watch in addition to the digital clock on your smartphone, but this does not mean that you should ditch the clock altogether in your home. With the Fibonacci Clock that costs anywhere from $84.99 to $134.99 depending on the model, it is a truly unique — and of course, geeky method of telling the time.
This can be considered to be the ultimate clock for tinkerers and math geeks, where it boasts of 10 color palettes and a couple of lamp modes which will be able to show off the beauty of math. You can pick your DIY level, which is selected from a kit of parts to fully assembled. At the end of it all, three colors on the clock will matter: red and blue for the hours, and blue and green for the minutes. The minutes will be rounded to five minute increments, so a wee bit of brain power is required in order to perform some basic multiplication in order to obtain the precise timing.

Multiplayer gaming has long broken through the barriers of being confined to desktop machines for quite some time now, thanks to faster Internet connectivity that is available to the masses, not to mention more and more sophisticated console titles. Having said that, many multiplayer games these days will see groups of people split into teams, and since speaking gets the message across a whole lot faster compared to typing it down, a gaming headset has become quite the staple peripheral among gamers for a while already. If you are on a tight budget and yet would like a gaming headset to go along with your console experience, then the $24.99 GRX-340 Gaming Headset would be able to get the job done.
You will be able to choose from blue or green shades which will be made available for the Sony PS4 or Xbox One, respectively. The GRX-340 Gaming Headset will arrive with 40mm audio drivers and includes a high performance microphone with advanced circuitry so that whatever instructions that you have for your team members will be sent out, loud and clear. It is not wireless, however, so do take note of that, as it connects via a 3.5mm standard stereo plug. The microphone comes with an on/off switch so that you can kill communications when the situation requires it.

Are you a huge Pokémon fan, having grown up with these pocket monsters back when they were a hit on the Nintendo Game Boy, and continued on in your quest to “collect ‘em all” through various iterations of Nintendo’s portable handheld platform — the Nintendo Game Boy Advanced, the Nintendo DS and the Nintendo 3DS? Well, now that you are on the move with Pokémon Go, surely it is about time you picked up the $29.99 Pokémon Over Ear Headphones to show the world just what a huge fan of the gaming franchise you are.
This is no ordinary pair of headphones, as it comes with a built-in microphone — which will then allow you to answer incoming phone calls that interrupt your mobile gaming sessions. If your device supports it, then it will take advantage of the inline one-button controller for calls and music. Apart from that, it will feature an adjustable headband with soft, leatherette ear cushions. Do bear in mind that this is an officially licensed Pokémon merchandise, so you will not have any issues with folks calling you out for purchasing a fake from China.

Some days it seems impossible to fall asleep. There’s too much going on in your brain and while you’re not necessarily hearing voices in your head (that’s reserved for the clinically insane), it’s just…loud. The only way to calm your mind enough to catch some z’s before the sun rises is to drown out the hustle and bustle of your brain with music, but the problem is that most headphones aren’t exactly comfortable to wear when you’re laying down.
If you don’t like using a speaker because your walls are paper thin and you’re a considerate neighbor, or you just prefer to hear every note as crisply as possible, you’re going to need a more comfortable option. These Gen 3 Bedphones might make sleeping with headphones on a less painful experience as they’re less than 1/4” thick, and use memory wire ear hooks to make sure they fit exactly as you want them to. Of course, even being as thin as they are may still be a bit too uncomfortable for some people.
These will plug into your music-playing device through a 3.5mm headphone jack, which means you’ll need to keep your device near your head. There’s also an app for iOS and Android that will automatically shut your music off when you fall asleep. One of the newer features is that it is now equipped with an in-line mic and a button to let you control music and handle calls for those of you who want to use these as more than a sleep aid. This $59.99 purchase comes with replacement foams, a carrying case, and a satin eye mask.
Available for purchase on ThinkGeek

A name tag or a badge is more often than not something which is static, and cannot be changed, unless you place a sticker over it or simply to go and print a new one. Well, how about helping save the planet a wee bit with the lack of so many plastics with a smart badge that can change its message or name dynamically, based on what has been programmed?

If you were one of those who happen to grow up in the 1980s, surely you would have come across the likes of the Nintendo Entertainment System, or NES for short in many homes of your friends and contemporaries, so much so that you bugged your parents to get you one as well so that you can be with the “in” crowd. In fact, the NES proved to be quite the tool that kept you glued in front of the TV regardless of how the weather is on the outside, and now that you are all grown up with an Xbox One, PS4 and Wii U in your home, how about rolling back the years for your little one with the $35.99 Nintendo Entertainment System Backpack?

It has a maximum capacity of 50 lbs. And is made from 100% PU. Best of all is, nostalgia will “power” it rather than a power supply.
