This “green” cardboard housing which is used to turn your regular hard disk drive into an external USB/SATA drive isn’t for the budget-minded folk. While we’re definitely in favor of using such environmental-friendly products, charging top dollar for what essentially can […]

ASUS has recently come up with an idea to allow consumers to easily reuse the cardboard boxes that their motherboards are packaged in. Instead of giving people a regular box and a waste of material that users simply discard of once they’ve unboxed their motherboards, the boxes can be easily […]
08/03/2010, When folks mention racing games, you’d normally think about fancy graphics and fast cars, but some folks have come up with an analog racing game, dubbed RACER, which uses an old arcade cabinet, a remote controlled car, and a wireless camera to get everything up and running.
