cyclops-visor-replica-1.jpg

If you are a true Sci-Fi movie or comics fan you should know what we are talking when mentioning Cyclops from X-men, yes the guy that has to wear a special type of visor so that he won’t blast everything around him away with the optic blasts that come out of his eyes. Now you can look just like your favorite superhero when wearing this very realistic looking replica of Cyclops’ visor that is actually an authentically duplicated from the actual 20th Century Fox X-men. And although you probably can’t blast energy from your eyes this visor will make you look more like Cyclops at least when he is in his battle suit wearing the visor (otherwise he’s wearing a set of special sunglasses that are also quite cool looking).

The visor comes with an awesome all-metal display box with a certificate of authenticity and visor blueprints on the inner side of the top of the storage case. This way the Cyclops’ visor will look very cool even when you are not wearing it, stored in its special case that must be left open in order too make your friends jealous when they see what new “toy” you’ve just got. You should also have in mind that the visor comes with red iridium polarized sunglass lens that actually allows you to use it just like a pair of normal, very cool looking sunglasses… 😉

The Cyclops visor replica can be yours for $74.99.

If you want to look just like your favorite X-men hero…

iphone-soft-touch-pens.jpg

Because the multi-touch panel of the iPhone and the iPod touch respectively uses a completely different approach than most of the widely adopted resistive touchscreens available in other mobile devices, you need a different kind of stylus. The screen of the iPhone is designed to take input commands only from person’s fingers (or other body parts), but not from a plastic stylus for instance that is normally used in touchscreen devices. In order to do that the screen of the phone has a lot of built in capacitive sensors that detect a difference in the charge of every place the user touches the screen, but in this way the screen is not pressure sensitive. So in order for you to use a stylus in combination with the iPhone you’ll have to use a specially designed “pens” for this type of multi-touch screen.

Until recently it was quite hard and a bit expensive to get such specially designed stylus, but now they are quite widely available and are being produced in big quantities in China. Actually you can even get a pack of two specially designed stylus for iPhone and iPod touch for less that 6 bucks and you get even free shipping for them, a great deal if you ask me. So if you have bigger fingers or longer fingernails and have problems using the touchscreen of the iPhone or your iPod touch music player you can get these “pens” and fix the issue…

The price of a pack of 2 stylus is just $5.77 with free shipping.
