Hazel Chua Website

Hazel graduated with a BS degree in Chemical Engineering, although she secretly wanted to major in journalism. Thank God she never stopped writing because as luck and a whole lot of work would have it, a couple of tech blogs took her on, more came a-knocking, and now she's got the best of both worlds: crunching numbers throughout the day while writing about all sorts of crazy gear at night.

Christmas Is Coming: Iron Throne Ornament

Christmas may be over, but this ornament is so awesome that you’ll probably want to get one for next year. It’s basically a mini replica of the Iron Throne from the hit series, Game of Thrones. I mean, who doesn’t know what this throne is and what it stands for? The officially-licensed mini throne hangs from a small chain and it instantly turns every tree that it adorns into the most bad-ass tree in the neighborhood.

Christmas is coming…next year. But you can start getting ready at the cusp of the new year.

Liquid Key Caddy: Unlock Doors, Save Files, Open Bottles

Keychains not your thing? Well, then get a Key Caddy. It’s built like a Swiss Army Knife, save for the fact that it was made, well, for keys. It fits perfectly into your coin pocket–you know, that small pocket you never use on your jeans that’s above the regular pocket. It normally fits four keys (or a combination of keys and accessories like bottle openers, blades, and USB drives), but you can expand it to fit 8, 12, and even up to 259 keys with extension posts. It won’t make sense to fit that much into it, though.

It’s currently up for funding on Kickstarter, where you can get one of your very own for $26.
