If you’re a geek or a techie among ignorant friends, here’s something you can try for a few laughs. Or a few punches in the face. Playboy21 of psp-hacks has cooked up a tiny program he calls TrickBrick.
In what is dubbed as a “heroic computational effort”, a group of French, German and Hungarian physicists plus the supercomputer equivalent of the Avengers teamed up to verify an equation which Einstein came up with using a pen and a piece – more like three pieces- of paper.
Normal candle: hey LED candle! I’m made of wax!
LED candle: so am I.
Normal candle: people can put me out just by blowing on my flame!
LED candle: same here.

LED candle: people can put me ON just by blowing on my flame.
In a show of sheer over-the-top ridiculosity, French accessory designer Louis Vuitton created this decked-out iPod carrying case for German fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld.
The custom-made Taiga leather Vuitton case is lined with rich red microfiber, and carries an insane 20 iPods, along with a charging dock, a set of JBL Creature II satellite speakers and matching subwoofer.
I’d like to take a moment to welcome Lambert Varias as the latest member of Technabob’s crack writing team (by that, I mean sharp, intelligent authors, not writers on crack). Lambert will be a regular contributing author on Technabob, so keep your eyes peeled for his latest posts.
You’ve gotta hand it to the Japanese. They managed to take the strains of howling, tone deaf, drunken business executives and turn them into a multi-billion dollar yen industry. Now you can bring the Karaoke experience to your living room, complete with a cheezy disco light show.
If like me you possess a face that could blind people outright, you probably don’t post your picture online, like on facebook or friendster. You probably don’t even have friends. Well have I got the thing for you.
Is that a Wii-mote in your pocket, or are you just glad to see me? That’s the question your friends will be asking when you pop these mini Wii controller keychains into your pants.

It looks like the new hit 3-D action platform video game Mirror’s Edge has just gotten a makeover as a 2-D Flash mini-game you can play right in you web browser.

Toy store FAO Schwarz has a special service whose results could either be really cool or really abysmal. Although the store’s name sounds like it should be a division of the German army, the name of their service is straight to the point: Make-My-Own-Monster.
Looking for something to do with all those Starbucks coffee cups you collect every morning? Why not turn them into some great geek art like this guy did.
Photographer Dan Winters (from WIRED) saw all those cups, stirrers and other paper miscellany and was inspired to turn them into an awesome TIE Fighter model.
I’m sure some of you have seen the numerous and occasionally cryptic do’s and don’ts for the DSi. Well Blockhead’s Guitar Hero controller for the Wii also has its own demands. I was just minding my own business, laughing at Engrish pics, when I came upon Blockhead’s manual for their Max V wireless guitar.
As much as you might love your MacBook or MacBook Pro, there’s no denying that the lack of a numeric keypad can really slow you down if you work with numbers all the time.
Perfect for heavy duty spreadsheet users, this nifty new application for the iPhone and iPod Touch lets you use your mobile device as an ad-hoc numeric keypad for your Mac.
