Mentos History

Mon, 03 Apr 2017 23:51:24 +0000

It’s been awhile since I’ve made a Mentos post. Don’t worry, I still love them and am still obsessed with them. I still get rare Mentos deliveries from other countries (via my Mentos Ambassadors) In fact, I’m sitting next to a large pile of rare Mentos as I type this post. I was scrolling through...

Smart Home Part Two: Smartthings, Amazon Echo, and Harmony Remote

Mon, 30 Jan 2017 13:47:02 +0000

Check out my last smart home post, Making My House a Bit Smarter with SmartThings, to see how things got started. I’ve been slowly making additions to make my home smarter over the past year. I received an Amazon Echo for my birthday this year (thanks Jess!). Out of the box, it has the ability... Read more »

The Robots are Writing Christmas Songs

Sat, 10 Dec 2016 17:34:29 +0000

I’m pretty sure this is one of the indicators of the upcoming robot rebellion. Apparently the University of Toronto pointing some artificial intelligence at a photo of a Christmas tree, and it came up with a (very odd) Christmas song. This “neural karaoke” program can look at an image and make it into a creepy... Read more »

A brilliant developer (and Seinfeld fan) Doug Keener has created a Seinfeld version of Doom 2… and it’s awesome! You can download and play the game too.

Amazon Dash Button for Mentos

Thu, 14 Jul 2016 02:15:31 +0000

If ever there was a frivolous device it’s the Amazon Dash Button. Unfortunately, they made one I couldn’t turn down. You all know that I’m obsessed with Mentos, so when I discovered there was a Dash Button that would send me Mentos at the touch of a button, I had to order it. It showed... Read more »

Making My House a Bit Smarter with SmartThings

Mon, 18 Apr 2016 13:29:13 +0000

I have been thinking about how to make my home smarter for a little while now, but never really had a truly compelling reason to make the investment. The most common use of smart home devices seemed to be turning on and off lights, which didn’t really appeal to me. I think a physical light... Read more »

I was doing some shopping a few weeks ago at a local artists store and found an interesting item called a Japanese Furoshiki. It’s a colored cloth used to wrap presents in Japan (with no paper waste). There are a number of ways you an use it to wrap different shaped objects. The diagram to... Read more »

I’ve been updating these gift guides for quite a few years to help with my own gift shopping for friends and family. I like  technology and gadgets (and general geekery) so I also like to give technology and... Read more »

Well done, Mentos… well done. Kids giving adults live advice on making friends and meeting people. Mentos, the real-life equivalent of a friend request.
