Of course, the big selling point for the Mushroom is that it using zero "idle energy." Once you plug in your USB gadget and hit the big green button, it shuts off power flow automatically when charged. Not only do you gain an extra USB charging port, but you cut down your energy usage as well. Nice. Plus it doesn't hurt that this thing is just cute. It looks like something Mario would use to charge his cell phone.
The Bracketron Mushroom Green Zero charger will be available next month for around $28.
Once in a great while, we encounter a home decorating story that's relevant to gamers. And no, it's not because we spend a lot of time watching HGTV (Although James does love Design on a Dime). Representatives of the Blik wall decals company sent us a set of the new New York-themed wall decals by artist collective eBoy. eBoy largely works in 8-bit-inspired, video game-style artwork, so naturally we were all too happy to check them out and see how the decals looked on our walls.
That's a sample product shot above, but I have a picture of the decals up on the walls of JD Central for you below.More >>
Need some more storage for your gaming computer? I recently had a chance to check out Verbatim's Store N Go USB Drive, and I'm super impressed. This relatively tiny hard drive adds 500 gigabytes of storage in a device slightly larger than a bigger smartphone. It hooks up with USB 3.0, and that's about all there is to say about it. Plug in and you're done. At between $75 and $100 and available in a variety of colors, I can't think of a simpler or sleeker way to buff up your gaming rig (PC or Mac).
And that's about all there is to say, so head on below to watch a pug battle a duck.More >>
It's an easy process, with a simple-to-use custom skin interface that lets you upload your own graphics, which can be a lot more complex than what I did here - you can even layer several graphics over one another. I like to keep things simple and have minimal artistic talent, hence the design you see above.
I've got another shot of my tricked-out 3DS for you below.More >>
We all want the most battery life out of our gadgets. Historically, Nintendo's DS line has been pretty good on energy use, although the 3DS is a bit more of a power-suck. Enter the 3DS PowerSkin the first video game-related add-on from PowerSkin (the company specializes in cell phone battery packs). According to PowerSkin, this add-on will double the battery life of your 3DS.
So does it work?More >>
