What better canvas for your creative expression than an old 8-bit NES cartridge? That’s what the recent Famicase art exhibition in Japan was all about.

‘Wasp Knife’ Will Stab Your Victims Then Freeze Their Organs

‘Wasp Knife’ Will Stab Your Victims Then Freeze Their Organs
Britain is reportedly on alert for the wasp knife, a knife that can “deliver a ball of compressed gas capable of killing its victim at the press of a button.” A needle in the tip of the knife’s blade shoots out a little frozen gas ball which instantaneously grows to “the size of a basketball” and freezes the victim’s internal organs.

Stick Your iPhone Somewhere Handy With the Soaripod

Stick Your iPhone Somewhere Handy With the Soaripod
For all those times you just can’t handle holding your iPhone in your hands, the Soaripod will hold it for you. It’s got a flexible 12-inch extension arm and clamps to any surface.

Saturday Night Speakers Do Disco Stu Proud

Saturday Night Speakers Do Disco Stu Proud
I was researching a different story altogether, when I came across these awesome desktop speakers which look like little disco dancers. At first glance, I actually thought they looked like South Park’s Eric Cartman dressed up like fat Elvis with a jumbo 1970s ‘fro.
