The Wonderful World of Prison Inventions Someone once said that necessity is the mother of all invention. Prison is one of the few places where very few common wants and needs are fulfilled; resources are incredibly limited and ardently regulated. Prisoners, who are not content to only posses what "the man" tells them they can have, are forced to use their critical thinking skills (prison-genuity, anyone?) to craft what can be some very type shit.

Game Consoles under X-Ray Somebody ran these game consoles under an X-ray machine. Look what they discovered. 45 Amazing Free Fantasy and Sci-fi Art Wallpapers I’m always fascinated by fantasy and science fiction illustrations. I am not a sci-fi and fantasy novel fan, but I always find myself staring in awe and admiration at Asimov science fiction book covers and artworks by known fantasy and sci-fi masters like Fred Gambino, Chris Moore, David Mattingly, Boris Vallejo and Luis Royo.

What to do with the empty Whisky/glass bottles; Whisky PC by Met Fitting it all inside Almost there HDD and PSU already installed inside the bottle. Now comes the tricky part on how to get the rest of the hardware components to fit. Toshiba Develops 1TB SSD That Fits On A Postage Stamp - HotHardw SSDs are still overpriced for most average consumers, but the companies responsible for making them are constantly searching for ways to make them larger (in terms of capacity), smaller (in terms of form factor) and cheaper (in terms of real dollars). Toshiba has their own line of solid state drives right now, but just as the company has innovated in the optical storage department, they're also hoping to innovate in the world of NAND storage. A new partnership between the company and Tokyo's Keio University has led to the creation of a new technology that could allow SSDs up to 1TB in size to be made "with a footprint no larger than a postage stamp." That's far, far smaller than even the 1.8" drives that currently reside in the larger iPod units, and exponentially smaller than the 2.5" SSDs that are shipping now for existing notebooks. The report states that the two have been able to integrate 128GB NAND Flash chips and a single controller into a stamp-sized form factor.
