A Completely Over the top Luxury Keyboard

I love perusing the gadgets on Kickstarter and IndieGogo. While some of them are nice, others are so completely over the top that you have to admit they’re almost worth buying. And yes, I have been known to splurge on some of them in the past. Today’s find is this completely over the top keyboard. […]

Geek Friendly Coffee Table

I’m currently in the market for a coffee table, so I’ve been keeping an eye out for interesting takes on what can become a centre piece in your sitting room.

Star Wars themed light switch sticker dark side / light side

The ones depicted are “dark side”, with a TIE fighter, while the “light side” shows the silhouette of an X-Wing from the […]

Coffee + Star Wars = Perfection

I’m a coffee addict. I’ll freely admit it. As a result of my addiction I’ve ended up with both a nice collection of coffee mugs as well as a good range of different coffee making apparatus.
