Mario Gets the Halloween Treatment

Mario Gets the Halloween Treatment
With Halloween just days away, it’s only appropriate that we share in the holiday festivities. So without further adieu, I present the Mario Jack-O-Lantern. The cool thing about this pumpkin is that you can grab the pattern from Seed of the Zombie Pumpkins!

Weird Japan: the Digital Push-Up Counter

Weird Japan: the Digital Push-Up Counter
It’s always fun to see what sort of quirky tech will come out of the creative minds of Japan’s electronic toy makers. The latest wacky gadget to find its way from Konami’s Party Goods division is the electronic Push-Up Counter.

Touchpal Brings iPhone-Like Keyboard to Windows Mobile
When it comes to the iPhone’s slick user interface, I guess imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Case-in-point: this new application for Windows Mobile devices which mimics, and actually improves upon the iPhone’s touchscreen keyboard.

Urban Fidelity Planet Speakers Land on Earth

Urban Fidelity Planet Speakers Land on Earth
While the metal “planets” floating above these speaker cones may look a bit like disco balls, they actually serve a purpose. The spheres are designed to disperse sound in a perfect 360-degree soundfield. Designer Markus Duevel is the mind behind the Urban Fidelity Planet Speakers.

O Mighty Isis, This is One Tough Puzzle

O Mighty Isis, This is One Tough Puzzle
Let me start by saying this — the glorious ISIS puzzle was designed with one mission in mind — to be the most difficult puzzle ever made. Handmade in England using aluminum alloy, the puzzle not only is insanely challenging, it looks really, really cool sitting on your table.

Voodoo Glow Skull Arrives Just in Time for Halloween

Voodoo Glow Skull Arrives Just in Time for Halloween
I’m thinking that this Halloween, I’d like to scare all the neighborhood kids out of their wits with a bunch of these disembodied robo-heads sitting in my front windows. The brilliantly named “Glowing Scary Deaths-Head Toy” looks like your average, everyday metal-headed, Skeletor-robot-zombie until you flip the switch.

40gb PS3: Sony’s Great White Hope

40gb PS3: Sony’s Great White Hope
Sony’s PlayStation 3 console has certainly faced its share of challenges in the market. When it hit retailers last year, it cost as much as $600, and had virtually no original gaming content. Sure, it’s got a great Blu-ray disc player, and it looks slick, but without games, few people drank the Sony Kool-Aid.

HD Vmd Players Hit Stores for Under $200

HD Vmd Players Hit Stores for Under $200
By now, we’ve all heard plenty about Blu-Ray, HD DVD and the so-called HD “format wars”. Now a little upstart disc format known as HD VMD has started to ship their very first players for less than half (correction: now just a little bit less than) the price of the cheapest standalone Blu-Ray and HD DVD machines.

Weather Forecaster has Proximity-Sensing Display
The latest weather information station from Oregon Scientific uses infrared motion-sensing technology to automatically adjust its display based on your distance from the device. When you’re on the other side of the room, the Weather In Motion displays the current time and day of week in large digits along with a 24-hour forecast icon.

Recycled Cds Turned Into Furniture

Recycled Cds Turned Into Furniture
Got a few thousand spare compact discs lying around? Designer Belen Hermosa apparently had a few spare CDs and created this funky modern chair out of them. For some reason, I’m guessing it’s not the world’s most comfortable chair, but it sure beats sitting on a bunch of 8-track tapes.

Intricate Handmade Xbox 360 Faceplates
Swiss artist André Willimann handcrafts these gloriously detailed 3-dimensional faceplates for Microsoft’s Xbox 360 console. Each one is meticulously assembled from custom molded 3-D pieces, then individually oil painted to give the works depth and color.

Clone Wars: iPod Nano Knock-Offs Under $50

Clone Wars: iPod Nano Knock-Offs Under $50
I’ll start out by saying this. Steve Jobs and company will no longer like you if you buy one of these. But for those of you who are too stingy to drop $149 to $199 on a real iPod Nano, here’s a cheap Chinese knock-off that’s a dead ringer for Apple’s chunky little 3rd-generation media player.

Deluo Mouse Combines Pointing, Gps in Same Package

Deluo Mouse Combines Pointing, Gps in Same Package
Here’s one from the “why didn’t I think of that” file. The bright minds at computer accessory-maker Deluo have created a mouse that doubles as a GPS receiver for your portable computer. The Deluo MouseGPS embeds a GPS receiver inside of the shell of a USB optical scroll mouse.

Giant LED Lamps Made From Leds

Giant LED Lamps Made From Leds
Designer Kei Yamamoto created these lighting fixtures that look like giant LEDs. Made from acrylic, aluminum and a dozen LED light sources each, they’re each about 20-times the size of a normal light-emitting diode. The fixtures’ clear acrylic shell and arrangement of LEDs create a beautiful visual effect on the wall above the lamps.
