Hydrospanner

Have something caught in your Astro-Droid or perhaps you need to adjust the Heisenberg Compensator or maybe a lug nut came loose on your ’73 VW. What ever the task, bring a little bit of the future to it with the Hydrokinetic Adjustable Wrench from ThinkGeek.

“To adjust the Hydrokinetic Adjustable Wrench, just open the valve, fit around the nut or bolt of your choice, and push the gripper on the opposite end. It will compress the liquid which will, in turn, push the gripper on the end you want. Once it is snug against the bolt, close the valve and your Hydrokinetic Adjustable Wrench is locked into position. It’s that easy! The slim heads of the wrench will let you sneak it into tight spaces, and the design of the grip will help you turn even damaged nuts and bolts.”

James Cameron’s Home Movies

panasonic3dhdWhile everyone is waiting for James Cameron’s Avatar, maybe with Panasonic’s new “3D Full HD” camcorder, you can create your own masterpiece in 3D. The camera features two lenses that record two separate video tracks onto Panasonic’s proprietary P2 flash memory which should produce video that will work well with Panasonic’s recently announced 3D plasmas displays. While the picture to the left is just a concept photo from their NAB exhibit, Panasonic has announced they are starting “development of a 3D Full HD Production System.”

Standing in the way

As long as a man stands in his own way, everything seems to be in his way: government, society, and even the sun, moon and stars.
