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.

Out of This World: Star Trek Borg Cube Fridge

This Star Trek-inspired Borg Cube fridge is so ridiculously awesome that even extra terrestrials would approve. It's small and doesn't take up much space at all, making it the perfect addition to your room. It can also be powered by a 12V DC voltage power source, so it also works well as a portable fridge, too.

The coolest part, though? This thing isn't just a refrigerator, because aside from keeping your stuff cool, you can also switch and turn it into a food warmer. Who else can say they keep their food in a borg cube?

It rotates gradually and completes a full rotation in sixty minutes. It's designed to work with the Go Pro (but of course).

Reebok Bacon: We Believe in Bacon

So Reebok sells bacon now. They won't be switching over to the meat industry soon, but they've taken to distributing boxes of America's favorite meat product at the latest Crossfit games in California. Clearly, the whole thing was an ad campaign. However, it was a smart and effective one, considering all the buzz and the fact that bacon is everyone's favorite processed meat--with several major differences though: their version has no sweeteners, no MSG, no nitrites, no preservatives, no nothing.

They believe in bacon. I believe in bacon. Do you?
