Final Fantasy Gets Wild, Wacky With the Crystal Bearers
There’s a lot going on in the Final Fantasy franchise lately. Whatever your preference, you can get it: retro remakes on the DS, retro originals on the Game Boy (in the past few years, at least), and the epic forthcoming Final Fantasy XIII.

Go Away World, Leave Me Alone: Ovei Personal Multimedia Environment

Go Away World, Leave Me Alone: Ovei Personal Multimedia Environment
The Oculas Groups’ Ovei (Oh-vee) is a living room in a pod. A very stylish, air conditioned and ridiculously expensive pod. It’s elegantly designed by Lee McCormack and beautifully engineered by McLaren Applied Technologies. Which makes me wonder why there are no images of the ovei’s interior on the product website.

Time to Slice Some Fools: Afro Samurai Hits Xbox 360 and PS3

Time to Slice Some Fools: Afro Samurai Hits Xbox 360 and PS3
Afro Samurai is weird. On one hand, it’s laden with cliches. Bad guy kills father, son becomes a brooding, killer line spewing killing machine bent on revenge. Severed heads and limbs and blood fly. On the other hand, the hero is a black samurai in a futuristic-feudal Japan whose nemesis is for all intents and purposes a charming undead cowboy.

It’S-a Snack: Mario Bros Cupcakes

It’S-a Snack: Mario Bros Cupcakes
With the cupcake currently dominating the sugary snack scene, it’s no surprise that all the old favorites are gathering in fondant and buttercream. We’ve seen Space Invaders cupcakes, cupcakes that recreate a Pac-Man moment, and now, a set of amazing cupcakes featuring Mario and (some) friends.

What if Software Still Shipped on 3.5-Inch Disks?
Remember the good old 3.5-inch floppy disk? Now remember how annoying it was when you had to install a program that spanned 4 or 5 disks? Well, imagine what life would be like if you had to install today’s bloatware on your computer using floppies.

Rubik’s Cube Lamp: Puzzling That Nobody has Made These Yet

Rubik’s Cube Lamp: Puzzling That Nobody has Made These Yet
The Rubik’s Cube started out its humble life as a simple little plastic puzzle. But over the years it’s found its way into everything from alarm clocks, to the technabob mascot to crazy viral videos. But this could be my favorite use for a Rubik’s Cube yet.

Magnetic Plastic: the Lounger by Hoverit

Magnetic Plastic: the Lounger by Hoverit
Ever wonder how it would feel like to lie on a cushion of a magnetic field? Wonder no more. British company Hoverit has released  The Lounger, which is so straight out of RPGs and scifi that I can’t bring myself to call it furniture.

Wiids: New Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Allows Wii-Ds Multiplayer

Wiids: New Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Allows Wii-Ds Multiplayer
The first Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles (for the GameCube) made use of the Game Boy Advance as a controller and 2nd screen. While it was a good idea on paper, in reality the feature was a shackle: multiplayer was only possible if every player had a Game Boy Advance to use as a controller.

Sony Vaio Type-P Ultra Mobile Windows Pc Available for Pre-Order
Sony says their new VAIO type-P series ultra-mobile personal computers (UMPCs) are the lightest full-fledged Windows machines you can buy. Now you can pre-order them for delivery starting this February. The guys over at Sony Style have started to accept pre-orders for the sexy compact 1.4 pound PC that runs a full version of Windows Vista, despite the fact that it can fit in (or at least stick out of) your pocket.

Chocomiis, for the Wii Lover’S Valentine

Chocomiis, for the Wii Lover’S Valentine
Nothing says love like biting into a chocolate rendering of your significant other! Paul Pape Design’s Chocomiis took geek Valentine’s Day by storm last year, though they had no real name and apparently no real boxes, but now the Wii avatar chocolates are attempting to make a comeback.

Thug Tech: Throw Up Some Data With These Gang Sign Flash Disks

Thug Tech: Throw Up Some Data With These Gang Sign Flash Disks
I can’t decide whether these things are awesomely offensive or offensively awesome. Imm Living‘s east and west Hand Sign USB flash disks lets people flaunt their allegiance even if your only territory is a 5 x 5 cubicle.

Tiny Arcade Cabinets for O-Scale Model Railroads, O-My.

Tiny Arcade Cabinets for O-Scale Model Railroads, O-My.
Now I haven’t played with model trains since I was a kid, but when I saw these miniature arcade cabinets for model railroaders, I had to give them a mention. J & C Studios makes these teeny, tiny retro arcade machine models built to O-Scale proportions. 

Four Eyes USB Eyeglasses Help Your Memory, Not Your Vision

Four Eyes USB Eyeglasses Help Your Memory, Not Your Vision
Whether you’re nearsighted or farsighted, I can pretty much assure you that these “eyeglasses” won’t give you 20/20 vision; but they will help your computer remember things a little bit better. These whimsical 2GB Four Eyes USB flash memory drives were designed by Willie Tsang for IMM Living.
