toy gadgets that will allow you to engage in an office cubical warfare are not new but one that uses your iDevice as the launch control is something that makes us sit up and take notice. unlike the standard USB equipped foam missile launcher, the iLaunch Thunder connects to your iDevice wirelessly via Bluetooth and from your iDevice, you are able to maneuver the iLaunch through its 270deg of horizontal rotation, and more than 40deg of vertical movement. once you are ready to engage, just tap or shake your iDevice for the launch command that will send the foam dart up to 25-feet of range – a range that should be ample if you are working in an office without high cubicles. speaking of which, I hope they’d come out with a mortar system that will fire over high partitions or perhaps, incorporating a view cam for a more realistic aiming effect.

iPhone photography or iPhonegraphy, as we like to call it, has generated quite a cult following since the introduction of the 2nd generation iPhone. while we have no complain about its quality as far as smartphone photography is concerned, we do face the problem of toting it in style or perhaps, getting it to mount on a camera tripod. the OZAKI O!Photo-Bumper and -Gear are designed to solved those two particular woes. the former is a bulked up bumper case that incorporates a tripod mount for mounting on most camera tripods. other features of the O!Photo-Bumper includes sleek aluminum construction, stainless steel power and volume buttons, adjustable tripod sockets, strap eyelet for attaching a lanyard, and a screw-free installation (unlike the ElementCase). the O!Photo-Gear, also features an integrated tripod mount on the case, which also doubles as an anti-drop lanyard mount (included).

if Anakin Skywalker were to have a candlelight dinner with some chicks from a galaxy, far, far away or Padme Amidala, he would probably use his lightsaber to give the dinner a more romantic ambience. we know the fact that lightsaber isn’t in our checklist, so this Star Wars Lightsaber Candlestick holder should be suffice for us. this solid metal candlestick holder is a precise scaled down re-creation of Lord Vader’s blade casted in zinc-alloy and accented with chrome details. the only let down is the circular plate that might mar the otherwise authentic look but thankfully, it can be unscrewed and ready for battle with any Jedi who attempts to disrupt your sweet candlelight dinner with your beloved Padme.
