Pac-Man Gets Cross-Stitched, Tiny

Pac-Man Gets Cross-Stitched, Tiny
Here’s another photo that proves the equation Craft + Pac-Man = Awesome. You’ve got to hand it to the artist who created this amazingly precise cross-stitch version of the characters from the 1980s Namco arcade classic. Created by Flickr contributor EverySpoon, the tiny cross-stitch features detailed renditions of Inky, Blinky,…

Your Message in Light Emitting Diodes

Your Message in Light Emitting Diodes
Want to get your point across? Why not say it with light? This new kit lets you create your own custom LED light board using any pattern you want. The whole thing reminds me of a modern-day Lite-Brite. The latest Open Source creation from Evil Mad Science Labs, “Peggy” gives…

Nintendo Ds Lite Sound Shell Adds Thump, Thickness

Nintendo Ds Lite Sound Shell Adds Thump, Thickness
The Nintendo DS Lite might be the most successful portable gaming console ever, but it won’t win any awards for pumping out lots of volume. This add-on snaps around your trusty DS Lite and gives it a serious boost in the audio department. Gametech’s Sound Shell DLite adds on bigger…

The Touchless Touch Screen User Interface

The Touchless Touch Screen User Interface
As much as I love my iPhone, I can’t stand getting fingerprints all over the phone’s beautiful glossy screen. So I was jazzed when the guys over at Norway’s Elliptic Labs let me know about their new touchless user interface technology. The system is capable of detecting movements in 3-dimensions…

Tiktak Clock Offers Numeric Overkill

Tiktak Clock Offers Numeric Overkill
Sometimes it’s a bit of a challenge to tell the exact time on an analog clock. Sure, you can say “it’s about quarter-to-three”, but it really might be 2:47. This intricate wall clock tries to solve that problem by displaying every individual minute as a separate point on the dial.…

Pac-Man Blocks Light Up Your Life

Pac-Man Blocks Light Up Your Life
The last time I saw such a brilliant blending of Pac-Mania and illumination was the amazing Pac-Man Christmas tree that showed up on the streets of Madrid over the holidays. Now you can have your own personal Pac & Pals light show thanks to these fun colored light blocks. Designed…

Px-3600 Console Fakes Xbox, PS2, PS3, Wtf?

Px-3600 Console Fakes Xbox, PS2, PS3, Wtf?
Just the other day, I showed you guys a really crummy PS3 knock-off, but I think this videogaming oddity surely trumps that one. This strange little console can’t decide whether it wants to be an Xbox, a PlayStation 2, 3, or something else altogether. Heck, it even has those classic…

Nintendo Wii Color Remotes on the Way

Nintendo Wii Color Remotes on the Way
While there’s still no official word from Nintendo on anything but white Wii-motes, there is now a third-party option for those of you bored with the standard-issue models. Snakebyte is one of the first companies to offer a third-party substitute for the Wii-mote (called the Riimote), and will be offering…

Macbook Air Isn’t the Thinnest Apple

Macbook Air Isn’t the Thinnest Apple
On the eve of the in-store release of Apple’s sleek and sexy MacBook Air portable, it’s been revealed that an even thinner, tinier MacBook is in the works. The MacBook Paper is about twice the thickness of a sheet of paper, and it too fits inside of an envelope. Be…

Mini Polystation 3 Mocks Playstation 3

Mini Polystation 3 Mocks Playstation 3
You’ve gotta hand it to those cheap Chinese knock-off manufacturers. At least they attempt to keep up with the latest gaming consoles when they crank out their crap. Case in point, this awful PS3 copy known as the PolyStation 3. While it may look slightly like a real PlayStation 3,…

Robothespian Masters the Classics

Robothespian Masters the Classics
Back in the day, I did my stint designing lighting and sets for community theater companies, so I’ve seen more than my share of wooden acting. But this is the first time I’ve ever seen metal acting. The RoboThespian is a life-sized robotic puppet, designed with one mission in mind…

Ybox2: Set Top Box in an Altoids Tin

Ybox2: Set Top Box in an Altoids Tin
Here’s a fun weekend project for all you hardware hackers out there. The Ybox2 is the latest version of a programmable IP-connected set top box which can fit entirely inside an Altoid box. The system can be programmed to display widget-like channels on your television, using a library of freely-available…

LED Alarm Clock is Pure as the Driven Snow

LED Alarm Clock is Pure as the Driven Snow
I just love the clean, minimal design of this white-on-white LED clock from Japan. The simple dot-matrix display is powered by bright white LEDs layered beneath a clear and white acrylic shell. The clock offers alarm capability, and can be automatically set via a radio signal (although it’s possible this…

Rare Rdi Halcyon Laserdisc Console Up for Auction

Rare Rdi Halcyon Laserdisc Console Up for Auction
Back in the early 1980s, long before the Xbox 360, Wii and PS3 dominated the “next-gen” video game market, a little known console lived on the cutting-edge of gaming technology. The RDI Halcyon was a LaserDisc-based gaming system which was designed to bring the first full-motion video gaming experience to…

Too Cheap to Buy a PS3 Dualshock Controller?

Too Cheap to Buy a PS3 Dualshock Controller?
This strange appendage snaps on to the bottom of your standard PlayStation 3 SIXAXIS joystick, turning it into a poor-man’s DualShock controller. PEGA’s oddly-named “Vibrating Bag” adds rumble capability to your stock PS3 controller. Now they don’t specify if the vibration actually works when the game generates its feedback signal,…
