Geeky Gadget Review and Giveaway: Felix Two Hands and Monkey Do stands.

With the explosion in popularity of the tablet market, tablet stands are starting to swarm the shelves. Makes sense really, I mean who wants to hold one of those puppies through a whole movie or to skim through email? I recently sat down with a couple new stand from accessory designer Felix – the Two Hands and the Monkey Do.
Both products are meant to accomplish the same thing but do it different ways. The Monkey Do is a fairly monkey shaped stand with two out stretched arms to hold your device. It has bent “legs” and feet so the tablet nests comfortably at a slight viewing angle. The Two Hands is a simpler design, it looks like an elongated chip bag clip with hands. Squeeze the end to open up the hands and let them close back down on your device.
What’s That Growing On Your House? Solar Energy!

With the advancement of solar electric collectors, the world is now seeing real possible usage of passive solar devices in the collection of energy, but there has always been the downside: nobody wants big ugly solar panels hanging off of their home or business! The Sustainably Minded Interactive Technology (SMIT) group, inventors of Solar Ivy, is making that an issue of the past, with solar collectors made to mimic natural ivy.
Their new combination of photovoltaic and piezoelectric technology has allowed them to shrink their cells and still keep the power generation fairly high. These small cells are mounted on a leaf-shaped base and mounted over a nearly invisible electric grid, allowing the design to look very much like a naturally growing plant. The cells, while generating as much as 4 watts each, also provide shade to the surface they cover, reducing solar heating and therefore reducing the power needed for interior cooling as well.
Home or Business Video Security on the Cheap

Video security is often a concept that can baffle you, as security companies may charge several thousands of dollars for setting up a system for you. Home owners concerned about intrusion on their property or business owners looking at loss prevention or after-hours intruders can take the time to do a bit of planning and build systems just as good for far less.
KGuard Security, a Taiwan-based electronics manufacturer, has stepped up the level of small DIY devices with tiny Linux-based microPC digital video recorder (DVR) devices. The SHA108 (8 camera) and SHA104 (4 camera) DVRs are more than a multi-cam recorder and viewer, offering a full internet suite for viewing and playback on Windows PCs, as well as plug-ins for Android, iPhone, and Blackberry smartphones. The DVR is even smart enough to be set to email the user if it sees movement when a site is supposed to be empty.
