NEW! Victorinox SwissCard Lite Pocket Tool

Victorinox, the Swiss army knife manufacturer, has designed a clever multi-tool called SwissCard Lite. Admittedly, this little gadget probably won’t save your life, but it could come in handy in various situations. As the name implies, the SwissCard fits into a standard wallet card slot, meaning that you can easily store it in your wallet or pocket.

Meet Pocket Printer: a miniature robotic printer that rolls on paper

From The Verge:

Would you replace your desktop printer with a tiny robot that prints by creeping across a sheet of paper? Zuta Labs, which recently launched the Pocket Printer on Kickstarter, hopes so. The Pocket Printer, fundamentally, is a robotic Ouija planchette containing an inkjet printer head. Place it on a piece of paper, and it will slowly roll across it with an omnidirectional wheel system, printing as it goes. Currently, it can sync with computers, and the team is working on an Android and iOS app; it’s supposed to be a printer you can take anywhere, although most people would probably just leave it on a desk in lieu of the standard box.

Secret Powers

The powers come slowly.

Jazz only notices after a while. She’s stronger than she used to be. Faster. Her high scores at the Fenton Virtual Training Helmet have increased, but that’s only the start.
She discovers she can hear things a month after the incident. Hums. Electrical cords, devices, but also, signals. Bits of binary transmitted over the air, from cell phones and computers.
What’s more, somehow, if she concentrates, they unfold themselves into meaningful words.

It’s embarassing, to listen. It feels like an invasion of privacy. But somehow, she can’t turn away. It soon becomes natural, like you’d use your eyes.
She stands in crowds. She goes up to the rooftop to listen to shortwave radio signals without needing a receiver.

It’s only when she stays up one night— all night— and doesn’t feel tired the next morning that she realizes she doesn’t need sleep like she used to.

A Peek into the Future

Summary: When a time-wielding akuma sends Ladybug and a wounded Chat Noir into the future, they’re in for a few surprises. Some more surprising than others.

Rating: G

Main Pairing: Ladynoir (Or Adrienette)

AN: Yup… not my first story ever, but my first on this site and first to contribute for this ‘Miraculous’ fandom (#sorrynotsorry) I hope it isn’t too short. I may end up editing chapter one by putting HOW Chat got hurt… And YES, I have more chapter already written. I’m only just deciding to post it.

Before anyone asks, yes, this story was inspired by ForeverKanade’s “About Time” story (I always love reading future fics :3)

“My Lady… I don’t think we’re in Paris anymore.” He chuckled lightly as he tried to get to his feet. Ladybug’s eyes narrowed at his humor towards the situation. 

“Chat! Be serious!” As the boy stood, he was caught up in a series of wet coughs. I’d been hit a lot harder than I’d thought. He told himself as he spotted the blood on his hand.

The ears atop his head swiveled forward before he could say anything to her. “We might have company.” He slid into a fighting stance but winced at the twinge he received in his side. Ladybug saw this and moved to stand in front of him. “Chat. You need to get to a hospital. I’ll be fine.”

A soft, clawed hand held her shoulder. “What? And leave with no one to protect you? I’d be too worried for you to sit still long enough.” He tried to laugh, but only another set of choking sounds came out instead. Ladybug growled at him as a warning, but she didn’t try to stop him from staying.

What’s in my Bag Tag

I’ve always wanted to make a post like this since the first time I saw someone did it. I never got the time and now someone tagged me. That would be JM. Thank you so much JM for tagging me. :)

The Story:

The bag is my all time favorite bag ever since I got it. It was just from a thrift shop and I didn’t expect I was going to buy it. All for sure is that the first time I saw it, I really wanted to buy it. But due to my kuripot attitude, I had second thoughts. I had the money but I’m gonna lose it all if I was going to buy it. It was pricey for a bag. But it was pretty so yeah. I just left it there and roamed around. Then, I told Meric about it, and he said it was cute but pricey. But I really wanted it, I kept whining about how I love it. And then yeah, of course I bought it. Even if it led me to being broke. I was so happy to buy it because I’ve been looking for that kind of bag since my online shop days. I was a really happy kiddo back there. Til’ now actually because I almost missed a chance. Woohooo!

So what’s on my bag:

ID. I’m legal now, ID is very important in so many levels. That’s the only ID I got.

Pens and Journal.They do go with each other. I don’t really like not having something to write on so I always bring my mini journal.

Comb and Lip Balm. Simple beauty essentials. Ha. I need them to atleast look like a person. Though I don’t use them much. 

Earpods. My savior when I’m alone.

Wallet. All the butterflies would be free as soon as I open this.

Phone, Ipod and Pocket Wifi. Gadgets I couldn’t really leave especially when I’m out somewhere.

Thanks for reading. If you wanna make one of this, you should try too! :)


Extra-special thanks to:

eightbithoofapplespluslove​, and thesweetadventuresofstrawberry - You guys have liked a ton of my posts, and I really appreciate it.

playerj, pony-scribbler, askthepsp, and fimficveyron - You’ve liked/reblogged a bunch of my posts, and even dropped me a few questions. You’re always really nice and you have awesome blogs, and I dare to think of you all as my friends. Thanks for sticking with me for so long.

ileikchocolatemilk and eyetothekeyhole, my IRL friend and my sister. You two have encouraged me and praised my drawings a lot, and it means more to me than I let on.

and finally, askgrassyandmolotov, the one who inspired me to start up this ask blog in the first place. I used to suck at drawing (well, more than I do now) and didn’t really have the heart for it, but with a little time and effort, I’ve gotten so much better and I’m actually proud of what I draw.

And to the rest of my followers, don’t think I don’t appreciate you guys a whole lot too. Each like, reblog, question, or message makes my day a little bit better. Thanks for your support, and I hope I can keep up whatever it is that made you want to follow me.


Concept video: The Heatmap Microwave.

A former NASA engineer wants to build a microwave with an infrared camera and screen so you can actually see how hot the inside of your hot pocket is.

Welcome to Freddy's, Damien

Otherwise known as a brief bit of backstory to give you some meat on them bones.

They said he was born glowering. An angry expression on his tiny face that so intimidated the doctor that he was immediately handed over to a nurse without so much as a declaration of ‘It’s a boy!’; his mother thought they were joking until she saw him herself.

Damien Woods was born pissed off and in need of an ass to kick.
