The only trouble that I see is that you’ll might end up using your gadget for texting or tweeting, and your car will end up in a ditch.

3D Printed MicroSD Reader Poses as Micro Atari 810 Floppy Drive

There’s something so forgettable about microSD readers. That’s why I think that this little hack is awesome. It makes a microSD card reader look like a tiny Atari 810 Floppy drive. Rossum made this miniature using a 3D printer, which is even cooler in my opinion.

The Safer Way to Text While Driving

040809_rg_atxcartext_01.jpgIf there is one thing we don’t recommend, it’s using your cell phone while you.re driving. It’s become illegal in some states.
