…Marshall’s new headphones are a Major win?

Marshall Headphones

Marshall is a company known for their guitar amps, but with the release of their new Major Headphones, that could all change, as these things rock.

The Major are simple yet stylish, with an all black exterior made of the same vinyl as Marshall amps, super soft (and square!) ear cushions, and a fully collapsible design. They also include a 6.3mm adapter for you to plug directly into an amp, stereo or any other sound source that needs the big plug.

…Stars take a lot of power to produce?

Man-Made Star

What does it take to create a tiny, man-made star that will trigger a thermonuclear reaction inside of a laboratory?

How about a laser that concentrates 1,000 times the electric generating power of the entire United States into one-billionth of a second.

Not impressive enough for you?

Then how about this: The resulting explosion should produce 10 times the amount of energy used to create it, or more than 10,000 times the electric generating power of the United States!

The structure that will house this experiment, which is located in the National Ignition Facility in Livermore, California, covers an area roughly the size of three football fields, and the infrared laser that will cause the explosion will travel through almost a mile of lenses, mirrors and amplifiers in order to create a beam that will be 10 billion (yes, with a b) times more powerful than a standard household light bulb.

Let’s just hope they’ve got some bright minds working on this project, because otherwise we could bite off more than we can chew with our own man-made star.

…The Guitar Hero Air Guitar Rocker lets you live your dreams?

Guitar Hero Air Guitar Rocker

Forget air guitar and rock out for real with the Guitar Hero Air Guitar Rocker, a belt buckle that plays music out of the included amplifier when you strum a pick over it.

The Air Guitar Rocker comes with 10 “signature riffs to jam to”, or you can pick up the Heavy Metal or 80’s Rock Encore Packs to keep the party going with new tunes and more riffs.

It might not make you any better at the real guitar, but who said having a skill was any fun anyways?
