This wall clock is a mesmerizing floating metal ball

cool clocks

If you're in the market for a wall clock — and, really, who doesn't need another clock or three — your choices are pretty much limitless. Timepieces come in all shapes and sizes, and very rarely will one make you actually raise an eyebrow. The Story clock by Flyte is one of the few that might catch your eye, and not because it's flashy, but exactly the opposite.

Stick this phone on the wall and control it with your eyes

zte hawkeye

What do smartphone buyers actually want out of their devices? Chinese electronics manufacturer ZTE wanted to find out, so they created Project CSX, which apparently stands for "Crowd Source X" — I guess the "X" will forever remain a mystery — and set out to design a device based entirely on votes from the general public. The result? A sticky phone that you can slap on the wall and then control hands-free using just your eyes. Wait... what?

Dongle-killing MacBook Pro hub raises$1 million on Kickstarter to add what Apple courageously removed

macbook pro usb c adapter

When Apple revealed its newest line of MacBook Pros, featuring an utter lack of the beloved ports so many users have grown dependent on, it was immediately clear that dongles were going to become a problem. A company called Hyper sought to capitalize on the notebooks' perceived shortcoming and launched an accessory that completely eliminates the need for separate adapters. It absolutely blew up on Kickstarter, and easily eclipsed its modest $100,000 goal in a matter of days. Now, it's actually topped $1 million, and it still has nearly two more weeks of fundraising left to go.
