Meet the Little Printer. This adorable little guy from design firm BERG is a smartphone-controlled micro printer that can print anything from designs to receipts to to-do lists. It's scheduled for a 2012 release; no word yet on its price or what to do about ink or paper replacements.

From the submitter:

Bagger broke? There, I fixed it. This leaf scoop solves the problem with leaves piling up in front of the mower deck and pushes the bulk to the curb. Though it will shove your leaves to the curb, you don't want to use this on a busy road because you will certainly get a few strange looks.

A few notes:

Clearly, we can add vinyl records to the list of materials wood glue is used for.

I've never found a spray glue that doesn't wear off in a matter of days.

Just like this chart, I absolutely swear by the power of hot glue. I recently used it as the only adhesive on my Halloween costume and it held together superbly.
