Originally funded through Kickstarter, the electroninks branded Circuit Scribe basic kit consists of a silver pen, a work book, and a handful of electronic modules to get you started.  What can you do with it and how awesome is it?

The GoPro HERO 3 Black is a premium model of the popular GoPro series of rugged HD cameras.  I've seen a lot of videos pieced together from these cameras and they real allow you to capture the action.  Most of the people I know have been using older models.  When it was time for me to purchase one, I jumped in at the top.  Owning the HERO 3 Black has not been the most enjoyable experience.


There are a lot of computer mice on the market.  While I wouldn't say I have large hands, I will say that most mice feel small in my hand.  That's why it was important that I find a mouse that feels great and has all the features I require as an avid internet user and programmer.  Enter the Logitech mX Performance Mouse.


The Sonix City line of toy cars and playsets was introduced in the later summer/fall of 2012.  The playsets come in 2 variations: full playsets and add-on buildings.  The Car Wash is one of the add-on  buildings for these tiny new micro-car playsets.
