Dremel unveils new 4000 rotary tool, modders rejoiceIf there is one tool that is the most valuable to modders, it’s the Dremel. It’s small and amazingly versatile and anyone can use it. Without the Dremel, we would not have half the mods that we see here day in and day out. Well, modders will be happy to know that Dremel has announced its latest rotary tool, the Dremel 4000.

The corded rotary tool is the company’s top-of-the-line version and will do all of the usual cutting, carving, engraving, routing, sanding, you name it. It features adjustable speeds from 5,000 to 35,000 rotations per minute. It’s also the only Dremel tool that is compatible with all Dremel accessories and attachments. That includes the MultiSaw and Planer attachments for the 400 Series XPR rotary tool. Modders everywhere are smiling.

DIY iPhone retro rotary dock

DIY iPhone retro rotary dockHow cool would it be to dock your iPhone in a rotary telephone while running this app. This hack turns your old rotary phone into a cool iPhone docking station. It’s sure to sound great since it has 16 Watts of speaker power hidden in the device.

It sports one speaker behind the dial on the front of the phone and two speakers in the handset itself. The IR sensor and controls are on the side of the phone and the docking port is hidden under the receiver when the hand set is off. This is a pretty awesome mod if you have a 1940’s phone laying around. Video below.

Rotary Phone 4-Port USB Hub is crazy

Rotary Phone 4-Port USB Hub is crazyCheck out this insane device that calls itself a gadget. USB hubs are great and all, but a Rotary phone USB hub? It’s the kind of thing you give a tech blogger at the end of his career, to keep him from drooling all over the nursing home, just like you used to give those toy rotary phones to kids. And even then it’s not much of a laugh unless they try to make a call with it. It’s not something you want on your desk. Turning the dial opens and closes the hubs, which I guess is kinda cool, should someone hate you enough to gift you one. Available for $15.

Toaster makes even your buns toasty, not a Hamster sauna

Toaster makes even your buns toasty, not a Hamster sauna
This toaster is different. The cage on top spins so that your buns can get perfectly toasted on all sides. Now, I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking that this would be the perfect spa type accessory for your hamster. That tubby furball could stand to lose a few pounds right? Wrong. It would kill him. It’s for toast, it’s not a Richard Simmons hamster treadmill, though I hear that’s available too.

Now that we have that out of the way, this toaster even has a few heating drawers that will keep slices of toast crisp and warm. Hopefully it’s available in more colors. I’d like to see it in chrome, while I watch my buns battle it out in a steel cage match to the death.

Older geeks listen up. Do you miss all the fun of using a good old fashioned rotary dialler? You know, back when just entering seven digits took forever, accompanied by that sound of the dial turning back in place with each number.

The iDial is an application for your iPhone that might just bring back memories. Those days were pretty damn inconvenient, but on some levels you might say that we actually had more interaction with our devices. I guess that’s because we did half the work. The iDial is just a download away.
