Over on Boing Boing Gadgets, our Joel is spotting some very fine stuff indeed. First up, this wrist-strap/ USB cable transformer:
As Joel sez, "This little phone strap is actually a USB cable, with a standard male connector on one end and a mini-USB male on the other. (The type normally used on phones.)"
Next, Discovery's "Polymer Lab," a goo-making machine that'll have your kids turning out slime, floam, ooze, and many other squishy delights.
Finally, this cardboard box robot-toy commissioned by Amazon Japan, "designed to appear as if it were a golem brought to life from discarded shipping boxes." The designer is also the creator of the anime/manga franchise Azumanga Daioh.
