Nintendo’s Wii U is struggling with sales. On the other hand, sex sells. Peripheral developer Power A saw this as a great opportunity and developed this vibrator attachment for Wii U. Surely this thing will convince those sitting on the fence to pick up the new console, and this handy attachment.
Okay, actually I’m lying. Believe it or not, this peripheral is a stylus. I don’t know where Power A got their design inspiration from, but the tech specs say nothing about inserting this into your vagina.
If you’re looking to pick one up, you can grab it at your nearest Best Buy, linked here.
Kickstarter is no stranger to unique products, ready to excite consumers in search of an upgrade to their current life setup. Just last summer, I purchased the Slim wallet off Kickstarter in an attempt to consolidate my bulkier leather bound credit card cramped companion. Sadly, the makers of Slim have yet to ship my wallet, causing me sleepless nights and relentless frustration.
In steps Dizmio. Designed by entrepreneur Kenneth Lemus comes this new-age wallet, featuring a bare-bones simplistic design composed of two aluminum plates to house your credit cards, compressed by a thick elastic band. The band allows the user to keep cash or an easy to grab card handy on the outside of the plates. The top of the wallet features two “bunny-ears,” making it easy to grab and thumb through the contents, an addition so simple yet so genius. The wallet also protects against RFID skimming theft, which is always a plus.
Part of the allure of owning a tablet or smartphone is the massive application library of games you have at your finger tips. And for Android, the experience is even deeper, where running your favorite old school video game off an emulator is incredible easy. While running a Wii Remote or Xbox 360 controller has been possible for a while now via bluetooth, dedicated Android gaming controllers are starting to flood the marketplace. Two new competitors are Power A’s MOGA controller, and Nyko’s Playpad Pro. Instead of splitting the reviews, I thought it would be more interesting to put the two head-to-head.
Nintendo’s newest home console launched less than a week ago in North America, and gamers are going bananas for the Big N’s first HD offering. Stores and online retailers are sold out, and the buzz is growing. After spending several days immersed in all the console has to offer, I wanted to give some impressions to those who haven’t yet purchased the Wii U, or others across the pond that have a few days left before their upcoming launches. Here’s some key touch-points:
Google always does a top-notch job with their viral web ads, and the latest is no different. The tech company decided to show off the collaboration features of Google Docs by featuring one of the most well known duos in music, Hall & Oates. What developed is a truly brilliant commercial. Thoughts?
After a summer of superheroes, I am more than ready for a fall filled with Bond. James Bond. For I am a 007 fanatic beyond words. I love the characters, the action, the suspense, and the score all the same.
After production delays galore, Bond’s latest resurrection dubbed Skyfall will finally release in just a couple months. From what I can tell, this will be another exciting entry in the franchise. Fancy gadgets, like a finger-print detecting gun? Check. A creepy foreign foe with a bad dye-job? Check. Dame Judi Dench being her usual badass self? Check.
Anyone else excited for this fall’s new Bond? Sound off below. And check out the new international trailer above.
Over two years ago, I, Jason Leavey — started DaftBit.com, a blog dedicated to all things gaming, gadgets, and geekery. I had the same ambitious goals as every other tech-obsessed lost soul floating through their mid-twenties; aspirations of revolutionizing the Internet and online journalism by inventing a wheel that was invented years prior. I wanted to develop an immensely popular site which would provide a constant flow of news about the biggest stories and features relating to geek culture, whether that be software reviews, announcements of new technology products, or geekery in the form of the latest Zelda-inspired Etsy creation. In some ways, I succeeded.
