A Bedroom Like Bilbo’s, Straight From His Little House in the Shire

Bilbo's Bedroom

We’ve got two more weeks before Bilbo Baggins’ epic adventure hits the big screen. Peter Jackson and the rest of his crew are currently working feverishly on post-production for The Hobbit, and it’s set to be completed just two days before the big opening. Talk about a close call.

I’m not going a grand adventure like Bilbo is, although I am making a huge move to a new place next year. So you can just imagine the geek in me scream out (while my boring, serious external stuff maintained a calm demeanor) when I spotted this cozy-looking get-up that looks like it came straight from the set of The Hobbit!

A Bedroom In The Most Expensive Gadget Ever

By Evan Ackerman

Obviously, this guy needs a Kindle. I just wonder what kind of internet they get up there; for about $130 billion, it had better be something decent. I also wonder what else he’s got on that laptop…

If you’d like to see the rest of the tour, catch parts 1, 2, 3, and 4 on NasaTV @ YouTube.

Also, if you haven’t seen a shuttle launch from the point of view of a camera mounted on the outside of one of the booster rockets, check it out after the jump.Continue Reading

Logitech Launches iPod Bedroom Music System

Logitech announced a new iPod speaker dock today aimed at bedside use called the Logitech Pure-Fi Dream Premium Bedroom Music system. While the speaker may well have the longest product name Logitech has ever used, it packs in some cool technology.

The system is designed to be used at the bedside in place of an alarm clock. Two different alarms can be set so you and your significant other can each have your own wake up time. You can opt to have the system wake you up to music from the radio or your iPod and a buzzer is available as well. The snooze button can be activated by simply waving your hand over the speaker or by hitting the button.

Motion sensing technology allows you to turn the backlit display on by simply waving your hand over the speaker. The screen automatically dims at night and brightens during the day to make reading the display easier. The LCD screen provides song, track and artist information. A remote control is included for controlling the system from across the room. Logitech says the device will be available in November for $249.99.

Bitz Pixelated Palz Now Invading Bedrooms Instead Of Space

By Andrew Liszewski

It’s pretty much a given that unless your kids grew up in the 80’s they’re going to look down on many classic video games. But until they reach the age where they realize how uncool ‘Space Invaders’ is you can at least surround them with these plush creations inspired by the game.

The Bitz Pixelated Palz are handmade by artists Amy & Jude Buffum and each one has a unique 8-bit look to them. But modern parents need not to worry since those dangerous looking corners and sharp angles are all quite soft and safe for even the youngest of kids.

The Bitz Pixelated Palz are available from Art Star in 8 different designs for $25 each. And if you are interested I’d suggest snatching them up now rather than later since each design is limited to 25 pieces and many have already sold out.

Solar Powered Mars/Bedroom Explorer Kit

Recently NASA has taken a simpler, cheaper approach to space exploration and with two rovers currently rolling around Mars it seems to be working. So if you have kids that dream about working at the Jet Propulsion Lab rather than playing in the NBA this is a good place to start.

Since it’s sold as a kit the Mars Explorer comes as a pile of parts but during the assembly process kids can learn important life lessons like how to assemble a gearbox, how to wire a solar panel and electric motor and most importantly how to call tech support when the final product doesn’t seem to work. Now something tells me there’s not enough Estes model rocket engines on the planet to actually get this mini Mars Explorer to the red planet but I’m sure the average kids bedroom will provide a more than adequate hostile environment for the rover to explore.

The mini Mars Explorer kit is available from EcoCentric for about $57.

The Suvet, 50% Suit, 50% Duvet, 100% Awesome

duvet-suit-sleep-everywhere-suvet-jurys-inns

As far as we’re concerned nap time is pretty much all the time. It looks like we’re not alone thinking that way. British hotel chain Jurys Inn Hotel Group conducted research that showed 56% of Brits struggle to get out of bed in the morning. “Lack of sleep (42%), temperature outside the duvet (40%) and fear of the working day ahead (31%), topped the list of reasons to stay in bed.” So what better solution than to simply bring the duvet with you? The chain then teamed up with famed designer Wendy Benstead to create the Suvet, a duvet/suit hybrid. It looks amazing, will make you the envy of everyone around you on your morning commute, but sadly can’t be bought. If you want it to become a product you can buy, you’re free to Tweet @JurysInnshotels with #JurysInnSuvet. Yes, they’re getting free promotion, but who knows, maybe public pressure will yield results.

Sacrificial Chair Serves As A Clothes Rack

silla-practica

You know that chair in the bedroom you just toss your clothes on, only to finally take them off twice a month and toss them in the laundry hamper? Yeah, well, it’s not doing its purpose of letting you sit now, is it? So why bother? The Sacrificial Chair elegantly acknowledges this common habit and is made for the sole purpose of tossing garments haphazardly on. It’s a simple metal wireframe, easily assembled after being shipped flat, and serves absolutely zero sitting duty. We imagine the philosophy is that if you can’t change your bad habits, you may as well embrace them. You will, of course, have to pay $140 for the privilege.

Luma WiFi Router Will Get Rid Of Dead Spots, is The Last Router You’ll Ever Need

luma

You know how it is: your Internet works just fine from the bedroom, but step into the bathroom for, uh, some quality reading and suddenly your signal drops out. It’s a reality of using a single Wifi router in a larger home, since dead spots will appear in the strangest and most unpredictable of places. But Luma does things differently. It’s a router that uses several repeaters placed around the house in order to automatically create a mesh network that gives you consistent access from any part of your home. Luma will tell you where to place the units for best coverage, after analyzing signal strength in different rooms. Additionally, you get tons of app-controlled options, like the ability to pause the Internet, schedule time-off periods, grant or deny access to single devices with a swipe, set up a firewall and restrict access to chosen devices, and monitor and track different devices’ usage. It’s a brilliant system, and since it’s on pre-sale, you can get three Lumas for $249, a 50% reduction on its expected retail price.

For The Die Hard Fans: A Pokemon Engagement Ring

A2-325x325_Fotor_Collage

So I’ll be the first to admit, I’m a little out of touch on the whole Pokemon thing. Do people still play this stuff? Is it, like, a thing now? Because we’re thinking it would have to be for some jeweller somewhere to think it worth his while to develop a Pokemon Engagement ring. And to be so passionate about its description.

Somewhere in our bedrooms was a small pile of dead AA batteries from the sleepless nights with our faces glowing in the screen of capturing all of the existing 150 little evolving creatures we pit in a fight to the faint. Nowadays the batteries are built into all electronic devices and the 150 has been upped to a zillion billion. Nothing says “I Choose You” like our Trainer’s Band.

The engagement ring has a twisted shank with a row of created green gems showing our good health at the beginning of a battle, the other row of created topaz stones shows our experience. All variations of this ring has a Created Ruby and Cubic Zirconium cut in half to create the symmetrical design in the center. Our Genuine Gems options have Authentic Peridot and Authentic Aquamarine “AA” quality.

Prices start at $197 for the cubic zirconium versions and going up to $849 for real gems.
