I know I just mentioned this not too long ago, but if you're not already watching Felicia Day's Flog then you should at least give this week's show a try. In it Felicia visits the famous Clockwork Couture and does a hilarious fashion shoot - meaning you get LOLs *and* steamy fashion eye candy. Great stuff!
Guess why I've been searching ebay for an old bicycle horn?
This iPhone speaker uses nothing more than a pvc pipe and old brass bike horn to naturally amplify the sound - no cords needed!
But believe it or not, that's not the only non-powered iPhone amplifier I saw this week. Check out this 3D printed version I found via Mashable:
The iVictrola Gramophone comes in two pieces (the horn and the base) in your choice of colored plastic, which you can then paint to match the scheme above or leave a solid color for a neat modern look. Pricing starts around $95 for both pieces. (Isn't 3D printing cool?!)
Caitlin W. spotted these bookends with gears that actually move:
Yep - the hand crank works! Awesome. They'll be available in August for about $50 here.
And speaking of cranky things, check out this adorable "Hootch-Owl" bottle opener:
Oh! For those of you who live within driving distance of Waltham, MA, get yourselves over to the Watch City Festival, the city-wide steampunk celebration, STAT! It's going on now through tomorrow. And I want pictures!
And finally, check out my new steamy side table!
Here's a view looking out towards the dining room:
And here's a closeup of all my goodies on it:
