If you’re looking for a serious conversation piece, check out this 7-foot tall statue of Halo’s Master Chief that someone has for sale over on eBay. I guess Microsoft made a very limited number of these to promote Halo 2 when it came out.

Remember the arcade classic Track & Field? Well Konami has updated the game and turned it into one of those games that just hooks up to your TV. Instead of the blister-inducing button mashing of the 1980s arcade game, the new Track & Field Challenge actually comes with a two-player foot controller mat that makes you actually work up a sweat when you play.

Hang this piece of modern digital art on your wall, and you’ll get a never-ending light show of cycling colors. Kikkerland’s Geometric LED Board looks sort of like digital stained glass, gradually shimmering betweens colors, creating a variety of kaleidoscope-like patterns.

IPhone Accelerometer Hacked?

IPhone Accelerometer Hacked?
A hacker claims to have written custom software which directly accesses the accelerometer on Apple’s iPhone. He’s put together a brief video clip which shows off some really fun use of the motion-sensing capabilities. While I’m a bit skeptical that the video clip could be a fake, developer Erling Ellingsen does have a track record hacking motion-sensors and says he’ll be posting the source code soon.

Until now, Live DJs have been relegated to standing behind their turntables when they want to spin some tracks. This funky-looking controller from Vestax changes all that.

The Real Planetary Clock

The Real Planetary Clock
A while back, I told you about a little solar system clock from Japan. It didn’t accurately represent the positions of the planets or anything but the time of day (and I’m not even sure it did that right).

Space Invaders Mobile Hovers Over Head

Space Invaders Mobile Hovers Over Head
I guess it doesn’t take much to amuse me these days. Pretty much put an image of Mario, Pac-man or the Space Invaders on anything handmade and I’ll bite. Today’s crafty goody is this felt mobile that pays tribute to Taito’s classic video game aliens.

Sony Psp Gets a Touchscreen (Sorta)
While Sony has made it pretty clear that a touchscreen interface won’t be part of the PSP any time soon, that hasn’t stopped modders from trying to make it so. Thanks to the folks over at Spark Fun Electronics, that task just got a whole lot easier.

Amadana Bookshelf Stereo: Retro Looks, Modern Features

Amadana Bookshelf Stereo: Retro Looks, Modern Features
This stereo system from Japan’s Amadana may look like something out of the 1970s, but it’s actually quite contemporary under the hood. Amadana’s DDA-134 compact stereo system has decidedly retro-looking walnut wood enclosures for the speakers, receiver and DVD player, but on the inside, the system is reasonably modern (although certainly not cutting edge).
