What better way to break up the monotony of trolling the aisles of the grocery store than with a little video game action? The guys at this funky Milwaukee, Wisconsin grocery store are happy to oblige with an in-store Atari 2600 lounge.
I can hardly believe it myself, but Technabob is almost two years old, and with hundreds of thousands of readers each month, I’ve decided that we’re getting big enough that it’s time to add at least one new part-time writer into the mix.
Here’s a fun iPhone hack you’ll either really love or really hate. VistaPerfection 2.0 is a complete re-skinning kit for Apple’s wonderphone that lets it masquerade as a Windows Vista machine.
While many of you will ask: why the heck would you want to go and do that?
I came across this cool dot-matrix rendition of Mario over on Etsy this morning. Using an original technique the artists refer to as “DOTRIX”, it’s a really unique method for presenting video game (and other pop culture) art.
Those fortunate enough to live in Tokyo have recently sighted lifesize Coca-Cola robots wandering the streets. Now you can own your own miniature version of the wandering Coke robot for your desktop.

If you spent way too many hours of your childhood trying to solve that infuriating Rubik’s Cube, now you can have a constant reminder of your frustration every single morning when you wake up.

What better way to purge the flavor of that sticky sweet Super Mario Energy Drink from your mouth but with some minty Nintendo Wii chewing gum?
Perfect for satisfying your oral fixation, the little peppermint chiclets of the chewy stuff come packaged inside a life-sized Wii-mote shell (non-functional, of course).
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve set my eyeglasses down somewhere really obvious. But, like Mr. Magoo, I completely misplace them anyhow. On the other hand, I’m pretty sure if I kept my glasses in this awesome Blinky ghost eyeglass case, I’d never lose track of them again.
Korean PC manufacturer Averatec has tossed their hat back into the all-in-one computer ring with this new model that bears more than a passing resemblance to Apple’s latest iMac models.

I came across this nifty concept for an electronic plaything earlier this week and thought I’d share it with you guys.
Steve Gilbertson’s interactive color cube uses a 3-axis accelerometer to detect movements and relays that information to a grid of brightly colored LEDs to create a portable light show in a box.
