Instructables user cbaabc73 came up with a cheap and easy way to turn off outlets when you aren't using them. He built it after noticing his wife kept leaving the curling iron plugged, which can be extremely dangerous. This DIY project takes only basic tools without the use of soldering.

3 U Penn students developed the µWave (microwave, get it?), an Arduino based kitchen hack that plays Youtube videos while you wait for noms. Once you set the cooking time the program goes to Youtube and finds a highly-rated video for the exact length. Read more about it at the project's website.

Office wouldn't buy us a fan, so we made one!

Water-Powered Jet Pack

Zapata Racing just released the Flyboard, a water-powered jet pack available to the public. The Flyboard gets it propulsion from a jet ski idling nearby; its hose forces water to shoot out of the user's feet. Not as cool as a the real deal the public is waiting on, but I guess this is a happy medium for now.

No, I'm not headbanging. It's just the 'shake-to-shuffle' feature.
