    The New Dyson AM05 Is The Darth Vader Of Space Heaters

    Beautiful design and utility are, in many ways, paramount when it comes to home electronics. That’s why I was really impressed by the the new AM05 space heater/cooler from Dyson. It’s a completely quiet, blade-less system that comes in a black and nickel color scheme that looks like it fell off of Boba Fett’s Slave 1. Read More

  • This Fanless Heatsink Is The Next Generation In CPU Cooling

    This Fanless Heatsink Is The Next Generation In CPU Cooling

    CPU fans have a certain steampunkian quality to them. They’re loud, annoying, and collect all sorts of debris as they run, whirring endlessly and eventually failing. This new heatsink – more like an impeller coupled with a brushless motor – is the latest in heatsink technology and promises quiet and efficient heatsinkery in the future. Built by Sandia, this cooling system… Read More

  • Review: Nyko Intercooler STS For XBox 360

    Review: Nyko Intercooler STS For XBox 360

    As a fairly regular player of XBox 360 media (called “video games” by those in the know) I have found that the console often becomes hot enough to melt a DVD placed on top of it resulting in, say, a copy of Mario Kart Wii (another “video game” for a game console called the Wii) that is rendered unusable by said heat. This causes, in turn, our toddlers to melt-down and… Read More

  • Here’s an expensive shirt with two USB-powered fans

    Here’s an expensive shirt with two USB-powered fans

    It’s hot out there. If only someone would invent a shirt with two 10cm fans powered by USB, 4AA batteries, or a car’s cigarette lighter. Oh hey, here’s one right here. The USB Air Conditioned Shirt costs a whopping $169. Again, it’s a shirt with two fans in it that are powered by USB, batteries, or DC power — for $169. Plus, if you’re the type that likes… Read More

  • BedFan perfect for hot sleepers

    BedFan perfect for hot sleepers

    Everybody knows someone who sweats out every last drop of salty goodness during the night. Hey, that person might be you! It’s not me, but I know a few people who could benefit from this gadget. These are the same people who sleep with the ceiling fan on in the winter and an extra oscillating fan plus an in-window A/C unit in the summer. Again, this might be you! Enter the BedFan, a… Read More

  • Wii Crystal Cooler: If a Cooling Fan Could Look Stylish, It'd Look Like This

    Wii Crystal Cooler: If a Cooling Fan Could Look Stylish, It'd Look Like This

    Wow, purdy. It’s the Wii Crystal Cooler from Brando, a stand and system fan for the Nintendo Wii. Unlike the fan we saw last week, this one actually looks pretty great, what with its shiny blueness and all. Thankfully, you can turn the LED off with the flick of a switch. Somewhere, Mike Elgan is very pleased with himself. $20. If I had a Wii, that is, if I could find one, I’d be… Read More

  • Antec Brings Spot Cool Fans to American Market

    This is a rather “cool” idea (HAHA!) from Antec as a way to keep the hottest parts of your computer from going nuclear. Do-it-yourself computer modding is getting more and more insane as processors get higher clockspeeds and thus hit higher temperatures. The threat of burning out your proc or system board is very real, and geeks have taken to the problem with ingenuity, with… Read More
