Remember the awesome Fami-Card – the casemod which managed to cram a fully-functional 8-bit Nintendo console into an old NES cartridge? Well the Fami-Card is back, and this time the circuit has made its way into a classic Zelda cartridge.
Mario and Luigi will run from you in fear when they see your sweet knitted Goomba beanie! And it’s perfect timing as I’m quite certain you’ve been waiting for just the right accessory to show your Goomba love.
While the October 2008 issue of Esquire magazine got lots of buzz in the marketplace with its E-Ink cover, I have to say I was pretty underwhelmed by the less than exciting visual produced by the blinking display.
It’s amazing what a difference a couple of decades makes. Back in the 1970s, fiber optic lamps were some of the ugliest, tackiest things you could possibly bring into your home. And as this photo proves, fiber optics can truly be used for evil.
Ready for a challenging puzzle? Check out this new variant on the classic Rubik’s Cube which isn’t comfortable just being perfectly square.

Some people have way more time on their hands than I. Take for instance this guy, who painstakingly created this Star Wars scene using nothing but a crapload of LEGO bricks.

The Retro Cube Stereo Speaker and Mood Light, in theory, brings the latest in LED and rhyhmic technology to an old familiar shape. In reality, however, it’s more like an unholy marriage between a Rubik’s Cube and the Saturday Night Fever dance floor.
Thanks to your overwhelming support, Technabob needs to move to a bigger, badder server. The site will be migrating to new hardware on Saturday, 9/20. I expect there will be some sporadic downtime during the day, so if you have difficulty accessing the site, please try again later.
I don’t know if I should really be sharing this dorky tidbit, but back when I was just a pup, I was a serious bad-ass on the miniature golf course. I actually won a couple of shiny plastic trophies, and even an official gold-plated Jack Nicklaus putter from the neighborhood Putt-Putt.
