Domo Kun felt business card holder

donkunbizcardhlder.jpgThe scenario:  You’re at an interview for your dream job.  It’s time to hand out your biz card.  Out pops this toothy card holder – giving your potential employer a fleeting glimpse of your inner geek.  Doth hiring ensue?

solar charging usb hub


Yet another multi-tasking solar charger.  The USB Solar Charging 4-Port Hub will charge many cellphones and small digital devices whilst also serving as a USB hub.  This eco gadget is small, (about 2.5 inches square), portable, plug-and-play, and has a lithium battery to store the solar juice.

The hub can be charged via the sun, car charger or AC power.  Brando makes no claims about charging times so I would expect some delays.

sold at for a reasonable $20.
