Technabob Mascot Immortalized in Rubik’s Cubes
See that little robot guy in the upper right corner of the Technabob site header? He’s the original mascot of our humble little website, inspired by the classic arcade game Berserk. So I was oh so thrilled when I heard a world-renown urban artist has immortalized the same robo-dude using a bunch of Rubik’s Cubes. French artist Invader is known for leaving his mark all over the globe by placing tile art versions of pixelated gaming invaders in unexpected places. His upcoming exhibition, entitled London Invasion and Bad Men Part II runs from October 5th through November 9th, 2007 at London’s Lazarides Gallery.

Pink & Blue Xbox 360 Controllers Now Available
Bored with your old black or white Xbox 360 controller? How about pink or blue? I’m not sure if Microsoft is going for the whole “blue is for boys, pink is for girls” thing here, or just trying to give us a little color choice. Frankly the pink and grey version reminds me a bit too much of Good and Plenty.

By now those in the know are aware that Microsoft is just about set to release several new Zune media players. Thanks to some drawings over at the FCC website, I can confirm that there are definitely new models in the works.

Flash Drive / Lighter Combo: Why is My Pc on Fire?
Every time I think I’ve seen every possible USB flash memory gimmick, another one comes along and does something I never thought was necessary. This flash drive not only stores your precious files, it’s got a built-in cigarette lighter. I’m not convinced that a device filled with lighter fluid is a good thing to plug into any power source, but that’s just me.

For those of you who’d rather play some Wii Sports tennis instead of hitting a real court, check out these new racket add-ons from tennis equipment maker Prince. The mini rackets are a little smaller than the real deal, but the design looks much nicer than the cheapie white accessories you usually see for the Wii.

Here’s a cool gadget that lets you send messages using the wheels of your bicycle. By using an optical illusion called persistence of vision, your words are revealed as you pedal your bike.

Mario and Luigi Clear the Air

Mario and Luigi Clear the Air
All those old Koopa shells lying around are bound to stink up the Mushroom Kingdom, right? So leave it to Mario and Luigi to leave the place clean as a fresh morning dew. Normally, I wouldn’t think that a pair of plumbers would smell all that good after a day wandering through sewers, but these ones are said to keep the air fresh and clean.
