No Cold Coffee, Only HOT!

No Cold Coffee, Only HOT!

Regular YD-ers know about my coffee addiction and how I love my cuppa joe by my side. According to my survey there are two kinda tea/coffee drinkers, ones who love their brew piping hot (or a particular temperature) and ones who prefer tepid. The Nano Heated Mug caters to the former faction; those who love hot beverages at the ideal drinkable temperature.

If musical instruments can be wooden..

If musical instruments can be wooden..

Why not speakers? Most audiophiles will agree that wood is one of the most superior materials for any acoustical product. The way wood resonates is uniquely pleasing to the ear. Trobla (Slovenian for Horn) is a nifty passive speaker designed to maximize audio output through its horn shaped design. The wooden construction ensures audio fidelity, even at high volumes. And, let’s not forget that this is a passive speaker. Which means it channels audio from your phone’s speaker and magnifies it.

Tesseract. AllSpark. Wondercube!

Tesseract. AllSpark. Wondercube!

It takes a geek to get what I meant by that heading. Nevertheless, the Tesseract and the AllSpark are uber-powerful cubes from the Avengers and the Transformers cultures respectively. Each cube holds enough power to change life on earth. The Wondercube may just be the next cube to promise something as big as that. Designed to be one cubic inch in volume, the Wondercube has everything. Literally! A cable to charge your phone, to transfer files, a card reader (in case you need one), a mobile stand, an emergency power bank, and obviously, a torch.
