12 New Geeky gadgets you’ve been looking for – Vol. 17

Geeky gadgets have been an integral part of our product selection for a long time and will continue to be so for the foreseeable future. This was the first post I've ever made, and whether you're new around here, or have been around since the beginning in 2014 (time flies, doesn't it?) – it's likely going to be among the most interesting and unique collections.

We're quite happy with the product selections here, and we think that you won't be disappointed!

EDIFIER TWS EARPHONES

Price: $33.74

Edifier ihas been around since 1996 it's already well-known around the globe, and they have offices worldwide. It has been started by a group of audiophiles in Beijing who wanted to produce high-quality sound equipment with a low price tag.

I own a pair of their desktop speakers, and I love them, and everyone who experienced their quality says the same. These earphones come with 8 hours of playback, have Bluetooth 5.0 and aptX.

951-PIECE SHOES

Price: $15.96

Who wouldn't want to make their own shoe? Most people, actually. But this 951-piece set will bring out your inner child, and a true sneaker-head will not be able to resist.

MAGIC WANDS

Price: $10.94

You’ve always known you’ve had a little magic in you. Now, it’s time to prove to everyone you were right. Purchase this 11-piece wand set (or buy them individually to see which wand brings out the magic in you), and shows everyone you’re not crazy. Each wand is made out of metal and the design is marketed for beginners. Perfect considering you’re just a wee bit old to start at Hogwarts, so this will do.

LED NAMETAG

Price: $7.66 + shipping

Smaller than you probably think it is – just the size of a regular name tag that you'd see on a waiter or a bank clerk. A unique thing, nonetheless. Programmable and customize-able, but only Latin letters are supported.

T-REX MODEL

Price: $19.98

With the holidays around the corner, it’s time to start buying gifts. Like this Tyrannosaurus Rex model puzzle.

Your digitally modern and video game-addicted teen will love to assemble this with you. It’s totally for them, not for you. You could assemble the 50 plastic pieces…while they pretend to watch.

It will be a memory that you will cherish forever because your kid won’t be paying attention. Not surprising, because who likes to hang out with dinosaurs anyway?

INKLESS PEN

Price: $7.79+

A pen that will virtually never run out on you (well, eventually, it will, but it will take a while). Not only because it has no legs, but also because it does not use ink.

Magic? Possibly (But mostly the alloy used in the tip)

STORYBOOK DOLLHOUSE

Price: $7.92

A miniature dollhouse DIY project – a few different ones to pick from. Makes for a great little Christmas decoration!

ERASERS

Price: $0.38+

Erasers shaped like little smartphones – what's not to like?

CABLE ORGANIZER

Price: $1.79+

An upgraded version of cable holders with the rubber tips that are more prone to wear over time.

POSTER

Price: $4.91

A poster from everyone's favourite poster store – they use craft paper. A ton more different options available in the listing!

MAGNETIC HOLDER

Price: $3.98

A minimalist magnetic holder for your smartphone. Comes with the panel itself, and 6 strong neodymium magnets that hold whatever metallic that you attach to them.

SOCKS

Price: $1.58

Check out these Spongebob Squarepants themed socks! Let everyone know you’re a mature adult by rocking Spongebob Squarepants and Patrick Star with your matching sneakers.

These crew-length summer and spring cotton socks are perfect for hiding your feet during the warmer seasons. Because between me you and Mr. Krabbs, we all know the Krusty Krab isn’t thing only crusty thing around.

Regardless, these socks are colorful and light-hearted – perfect for anyone looking to impress the 8-year-old next door.

10 Geeky Products from AliExpress for $<10

It's been a while since the last Geeky things collection, and since one of the old ones has been doing quite well on my YouTube channel lately, I decided to make a new one.

We will see 10 different products, this time with a price limit of $10 for the budget-conscious buyers.

TORTILLA BLANKET

Price: $8.90 – 29.88

Another cool item that we will see today is a pretty popular item lately.

It is something that you may have seen online, but possibly didn’t know where to buy – a tortilla blanket. Wrap yourself in it – sour cream and lime are optional.

This will be the easiest burrito that you have ever made.

They come in a variety of sizes, the smallest one being $8 with free shipping to most countries.

WIRE/GADGET TRAVEL ORGANIZER

Price: $8.49 – 16.99 (depending on size)

If you have a lot of gadgets, you probably have a lot of space cables. And they are most likely sitting in a cabinet somewhere, forming a tangled mess.

To make them more organized, here is a handy cord case.

It can be used for travel, as it has an additional compartment for smaller devices like power banks, tablets and action cameras.

CURVY PLUMBER MAGNETS

Price: $1.05 / piece

This product has been listed in the shop section for quite some time, but lately it has been ordered quite a bit as well.

It’s a magnet set with the only plumber that I will tolerate eating my mushrooms and kicking my turtle.

Each one of these can be purchased for a modest price for $1, so be sure to grab a few for a full set.

TUNNEL LED MIRROR

Price: $8.02

The first item today is an infinity lamp with a mirror.

It has a few LEDs inside placed at an angle, so that when you look at it, it gives a neat tunnel effect. The LEDs can be turned off, and it can be used as a regular mirror.

There are different options, in the shape of a unicorn, a heart, a cactus and a few more.

KEYCHAINS

Price: $0.82 + shipping

The next product are these blocky keyrings.

There are three options: a rabbit, a T-Rex, and a kitty.

I am not sure what the strap is all about, but the bulb likely indicates that all these cute things want to do is get naughty and make a yummy inter-specie sandwich.

BLOCKY BOIS

Price: $3.89 – 5.39

Some blocky bois.

There are 8 different ones to pick from. The blocks are compatible with the other block sets that you are thinking of, though these ones cost a fair bit less.

They are a bit smaller than you might think – which is pretty expected for the price.

REUSABLE BAG

Price: $3.71

On average, a person uses a plastic carrier bag for about 12 minutes, and we recycle only one of every 200 we use.

A reusable bag does not seem like a bad idea, and here is a portable and collapsible one that can be easily carried around and easily folded back in when you are done using it.

MAGIC HANDKERCHIEF

Price: $3.99

The next product is a cool trick thing that you can use to impress all of your friends, as long as all your friends are 6 years old or younger. It is a handkerchief that can go through your smartphone.

A good magician never reveals his secrets. But there are bad magicians on YouTube that can explain to you how it works.

BOTTLE HOLDERS

Price: $9.75

Here we have a creative bottle holder for the fine things connoisseurs.

This thing creates an illusion of defying gravity, which coincidentally is what the liquid inside such bottles usually does.

There are four different options, three differently colored chains, and a rope that looks like a malnourished snake.

PET BRUSH

Price: $9.73

Here is a smart brush for the pet owners.

Unfortunately, it is not smart enough to connect to your smartphone to track the total amount of strokes your pet is receiving.

But it does have the extendable cover to remove the fur from the bristles, which will make it much easier to clean.

11 Simply genius and unique things

AliExpress is a great source of unique and interesting gadgets. Some are short-lived, but many things designed and invented in China are here to stay, and to improve the quality of lives: be that through the unique design, or through simple yet thoughtful design.

In this post we have something special for you: a list of the most unusual and simply genius things that we have recently come across.

ICE GENIE

unique things aliexpress

This is the most interesting ice tray that we have seen so far.

Calling it revolutionary seems a bit too far-fetched, though you have to admit that the construction is very practical. You place a round silicone thing (not in the picture) in the middle and fill it with water in between.

It can also double as an ice bucket to keep the drinks cool.

UNSINKABLE SWAN LADLE

If you use a soup ladle, why not have some fun with it. A perfectly balanced swan that graciously hovers around your stew while you are watching over it like a hungry hawk.

A truly poetic moment.

BOOK LOCKBOX

A lockbox that is disguised as a book. What's interesting about it is that the pages are actual paper.

Although we would rather see more obscure and less mainstream books – something that other people are less likely to look through should they feel bored around your apartment.

3 IN 1 UNIVERSAL CHARGER

At first, all smartphone manufacturers (except for Apple, because it's Apple) decided to come together to remove the need to worry about using different cables and agreed to all start producing phones with the Micro-USB inputs. But then faster and more efficient USB-C came out – how dare they! Then Apple decided to introduce their lightning cables.

But now instead of having 3 different cables, you can just have one very adaptable cable.

Quite genius, if you ask us!

AUX/CHARGER ADAPTER

A smaller and a thinner phone comes with a sacrifice: the lack of the AUX port, which creates a need to use earphones with a non-standard plug, and takes away the opportunity to charge the phone and listen to music at the same time.

But fear not, we can eliminate the annoying problem by using a simple external cable.

Checkmate, companies that want to make us buy a new set of earphones.

CHARGER DOCK

We've seen laptop stands, we've seen charger docks too, but this is the first time we are seeing these two things tastefully united in one.

The lack of external ports on your new Macbook (or any other laptop with a USB 3.0 output) can be concerning, which can be easily fixed with this device.

CHERRY BATHROOM CLEANER

We feel that there is a joke about chocolate-covered cherries here, but in this context it is hard to imagine it coming out in an appetizing manner.

This lovely bathroom cleaner will add a visually pleasing element to your bathroom decor.

CATNIP-INFUSED TOY

Did disgruntled Ginger poop in your slippers again or decided to use your $1,800 sofa as a scratching board? Keep him busy with the catnip-infused fish plushie.

This is an equivalent to giving your kid a tablet playing YouTube Kids, only that it costs much lower.

HEATING PAD FOR YOUR FEET

If you suffer from the chilly limbs syndrome during the colder months, this electric heat pad will wrap your feet in a comfy hug. You will love it so much that regular slippers will start feeling neglected.

As if you need another reason to stay in front of the computer for a longer period of time.

WATER BOTTLE WITH A PILL BOX

Remember the freakout you had at the coffee shop when the poor tired waiter mistakenly added an extra piece of butter cake to your bill, Margaret?

Well, with this bottle you will have an extra reminder you needed to take your pills. Breathe freely, Margaret.

GLOW IN DARK CARDS

Playing cards that glow in dark: it seems like such a simple idea.

Should come super useful should you find yourself in a poorly-lit prison cell. In which case, do not, I repeat: do not drop the soap.

We spend a lot of time looking for the unique products, and you can get them at the lowest prices by browsing our geeky collections or looking at individual deals in the shop section.

10 Geeky Things from AliExpress – Vol. 14

You obviously are a more experienced buyer with a sophisticated taste. Your heart desires something more interesting, and your curious mind took you places you could never imagine. So now, you are here.

In this post you will see 10 different geeky products that you can get from AliExpress. We picked the best products from the dozens of not so good ones, so that you don’t have to waste your precious time. You're welcome.

XIAOMI MITU CUBE

This little gadget from our favourite Xiaomi is a combination of a Rubik's cube and a fidget spinner on steroids. It's small enough to carry in a pocket, which is great for people who are fidgety or get easily bored.

UNIVERSAL CHARGING CABLE

People with multiple siblings know that sharing is caring. This 3 in 1 charging cable has the 3 common plug types, and it comes in handy if you don't live alone, often have guests, are traveling with another person or group, or are just running out of empty USB plugs.

With this thing 2 people can charge their phones at the same time using the same cable!

WIRELESS EARPHONES

Have you tried wireless earphones yet? Or maybe you always wanted earpods but thought that the price was ridiculous? Here's a pair that will make you want to make the switch. They play your music via Bluetooth and are compatible with Android and iOS.

They also come in a convenient charging box that is small enough to be used as a carrying case, and have up to 3 hour battery life.

SILICONE LAPTOP DUST PLUGS

The first item in the list are these these silicon plugs that will keep the USB ports in your computer and/or laptop safe from dust and dirt, and they come in different sizes for the USB and HDMI ports.

You likely need them because only clean your room once a month anyway, you filthy, filthy animal.

FLEXIBLE OCTOPUS TRIPOD

If you enjoy taking photos, this is a handy little portable tripod with a fun octopus design. The legs are bendable so you can adjust them to your needs, which means you can place it on a variety of surfaces.

This way you can take selfies without looking like you take selfies so that people will think that you actually have friends!

MINIMALIST DISPLAY WATCH

Here's another affordable watch to add to your collection. It has a unique minimalist number dial that only shows you the current time. It's like a digital clock but with a sleeker design.

Look like a million bucks without spending a million bucks.

WATERPROOF BLUETOOTH SPEAKER

And for when you’re in an environment where playing your music out loud isn’t obnoxious, there’s also this bluetooth speaker. We like the graffiti design, but it also comes in camo and solid colours. Plus, it is water-resistant so you can take it with you to the beach, lake, or pool.

Don’t put it in the water though, you won’t hear it anyway.

LED RING + TRIPOD

This is a cool product for any fellow YouTubers or anyone who’s thinking of starting a channel. It’s a 2 in 1 LED ring light and tripod, which is very handy if you’re talking or applying makeup in front of a camera.

It comes at a reasonable price for camera equipment, especially since you’re getting two different devices.

TIN BAR SIGNS

And another item for your household are these vintage-inspired decorative plates will make your kitchen feel like a cool bar or hipster coffee shop. The best part? They cost less than a cocktail!

There is a ton of different options in the listing, so check them out!

We have over a dozen other geeky collections.
