“Houston, we have a problem.”
Eagle this is Houston, what’s poppin? Over?
“Yeah, so.. I float over to where the cooler’s supposed to be, but in it’s place there’s this…I’m looking at this machine labeled “Urine Recycler”.
Here’s something for people who want some boom outside of their boom – I mean room. Landport’s cube speakers are so tiny, calling them ultra-portable would be an understatement. I say they’re ultra-losable. Measuring just 26 mm x 26 mm x 26 mm (appx.
Why choose the great outdoors over a carefully-rendered urban landscape? So long as you stay away from the people in that pesky uncanny valley, the variable world of video games may just be prettier (and easier to control) than the real world.
This cotton/poly hoodie is a steal at $22.99
If you remember the NES game M.U.S.C.L.E. as one of the worst (and silliest) timewasters in all of history, then these tiny USB wrestlers are just the thing you want exercising suggestively on your desk.
In Japan, these fellows are well-known figures from the Kinnikuman manga.
Wanna scare the living crap out of your roommate? Just put this giant furry black widow spider on top of their blanket while they’re asleep, flip on the remote control, and watch the mayhem ensue.
This massive R/C black widow spider is designed to be an “educational toy”, but if I had one of these in class when I was a kid, it would have ended me up in the principal’s office for sure.
Created by London’s Natural History Museum, the larger-than-life (appx 12″ long by 10″ wide) mechanical arachnid can creep forward, backwards, left, right, or even spin itself around on a dime.
Remember when it cost just a quarter to play your favorite arcade games? What would you say if I told you that you could play two Atari arcade classics for just one red cent a game.
While these pint-size versions of Breakout and Tetris aren’t totally faithful to their arcade counterparts, they only charge a single shiny copper penny to play.
Each mini-machine is actually a piggy bank, which encourage you to deposit coins in exchange for games.
While you could fill your salad bowl with lettuce, tomatoes, bacon bits and honey dijon dressing, that would be pretty boring. Personally, I prefer my salads to be made from anodized aluminum, magnets, and wire. Yum.
UK modder HoopsOnToast was shopping at his local IKEA store when he realized the potential to make some nifty orb-shaped speakers by gluing together pairs of 8″ Blanda Matt solid birch hardwood bowls.
The speakers get their sweet sound from a pair of full range (100Hz – 20kHz) Bandor 50mm drivers, mounted into the sliced-off face of one of the bowls.
Word is that the cabinets sound simply brilliant, and they only took about 3 hours to put together.
Yeah, I know. The Dark Knight was arguably the best movie of 2008, but can Christian Bale’s throaty rasp really hold a candle to Adam West’s booming baritone Batman? Now you can bring back memories of the classic camp of the original Batman TV show with these great accessories that help you turn your room into a regular Wayne Manor.
Imagine the phone rings when your friends are over for dinner.
If you haven’t already gotten your turkey for tonight’s Thanksgiving festivities, it’s probably too late for you. Unless, of course, you plan on catching your own bird.
This Cass Creek electronic turkey call is sure to attract the elusive birds as it cranks out digitized samples of real turkeys.
Call me a dork, but Futurama has always been one of my favorite programs on the old idiot box – at least when it comes to animated programs. Now, just in time for the holidays, I’ve found the perfect decoration for my office.
Inspired by the classic Futurama Christmas episode, A Tale of Two Santas, the set includes 6-inch tall bendy desktop versions of Santa Bender and (the bloodthirsty) Robot Santa for you to pose into a variety of compromising positions.
Casemodders have implanted the brains of the Atari 2600 into all sorts of strange host bodies over the years, but this is the first time I’ve seen this particular permutation.
Modder Chris Koopa (with a name like that, I’m shocked he hasn’t done any Nintendo mods) melded the shell of old SEGA Game Gear portable with the guts of an Atari 2600 to create this Frankenstein’s Monster of a gaming system, dubbed the Atari Gear 2600.
Do you brush your teeth? Then I have just the thing for you: a toothbrush! But seriously, OHSO’s pocket toothbrush is not only stylish, it’s also very practical. The most notable feature of this toothbrush is that it can carry toothpaste in its handle.
This new watch from Germany’s Botta Design can’t be bothered with two full rotations of the hour hand over the course of a 24 hour day.
The Botta UNO 24 uses a single pointy hand that rotates at 1/2 the speed of a normal watch, letting you view all 24 hours of the day without a 2nd time around the dial.
Each of the 24 hours and hash marks on the face of the watch correspond to the position of the Sun in the sky.
Here in the Philippines the elderly are respected and revered; these two toys are definitely not from the Philippines. First up are the wheelchair and racetrack bound racing grannies. Racing grannies. I can barely wrap my head around the concept.
The grannies can be individually controlled and are powered by AA batteries.
How many times have you plunked down your hard earned cash on a new game for your mobile phone, only to find out the game sucked? Now you can try out full (time-limited) versions of many mobile games right in your web browser before you decide to buy.
The guys over at mplayit offer you the chance to play a number of Java-based games from the convenience of your computer’s web browser.
While it certainly isn’t the most sophisticated robot out there, this kit from Japan is possibly the least expensive bipedal robot I’ve seen.
The Co-Robot keeps it on the cheap by using just a single motor and a wobbly gear-drive system to help it amble along.
