Click Oven Mitts: Pixelated Potholders
I don’t usually associate computers with cooking, but that doesn’t mean that your geek style shouldn’t find its way into your kitchen. Brazilian designer Anderson Horta’s Clicking Kitchen Grip oven mitts are inspired by the little pixels of the hand cursor from your computer.

Klingon Keyboard: Kliboard? Keyngon? Gibberish?
Heads up Trekkies: Cherry Keyboards are currently selling Klingon Keyboards. Yes, it has Klingon font as well as some English numbers. It’s perfect for, you know, if you suddenly find yourself in a chatroom with Worf.

Ditch Your Psps: Complete Famicom Collection for Sale

Ditch Your Psps: Complete Famicom Collection for Sale
I’m starting to think that the only reason the PSP exists is because some Sony executive’s kid nagged him for a portable version of Monster Hunter. Where the games at Sony? Even Famicom owners have it better than us!

Rock-Paper-Scissors-Lizard-Spock: Game of the Year on a Shirt

Rock-Paper-Scissors-Lizard-Spock: Game of the Year on a Shirt
I’ve always wondered how Paper beats Rock. So what if it covers Rock? That’s not the same as being cut or crushed. Cafepress ups the confusion but in the process has created the Game of the Year, nay, the game of the 23rd century.

Ever find yourself out and about when your cell phone runs out of juice? Did you know you can recharge your portable gadgets anywhere, even when there’s no available power source? Just plug your gadgets into this handy hand crank charger and get to cranking.

Ruben & Lullaby Opertoon – Strangest iPhone App (So Far)
Ok, how’s this for a concept? Take two moody lovers on a park bench. Put them inside your iPhone or iPod Touch. Shake them vigorously. Watch the sparks fly. Yep, that’s the idea behind interactive artist Eric Loyer’s new iPhone app, Ruben & Lullaby.

U-Fizz Makes Anything Fizzy and Bubbly
Can’t drink any more Coca-Cola? Pooped out on Pepsi? Sick of soda pop? Thanks to the miracles of home carbonation, you can turn anything you want into a fizzy lifting drink (lifting not guaranteed). Just get your hands on the $6.95 U-Fizz kit, a box of baking soda, some vinegar and a couple of soda bottles, and you can make everything from carbonated juice drinks to more offbeat concoctions like CO2 loaded Jell-O.

Heartbeat LED Watch Performs Cpr on Itself

Heartbeat LED Watch Performs Cpr on Itself
This funky modern watch out of Japan tells time not with hands or numbers, but with a tiny little electrocardiogram machine that sits on your wrist. OK, the EIN Cyber Heartbeat LED watch doesn’t actually tell you if your heart is still beating, but its LED graphical display is styled to look like a mini heart monitor.

Left 4 Crochet: Zombie Amigurumi

Left 4 Crochet: Zombie Amigurumi
Let’s be frank here: Left 4 Dead’s zombies are kind of gross. There’s the Smoker, who has a truly gargantuan tongue that shoots out, often from some distance, only to wrap you in deadly zombie saliva, and there’s the Boomer, whose projectile vomit summons a flood of other undead, and of course, creepy Witches, massive Tanks, and annoying Hunters.

Sense This Picture Makes None: Stormtrooper Driving Car

Sense This Picture Makes None: Stormtrooper Driving Car
I hope the person who took this shot wasn’t blastered to bits. Drive it like you stole it dude. The Sith Lord can’t be far behind. [via Neatorama]

Off to Hyrule? Take This Zelda Cross Stitch Map

Off to Hyrule? Take This Zelda Cross Stitch Map
If you ever find yourself in a pixelated 1992, and you find that green crystals pop out when you cut grass, you should be fine as long as you have this map with you. And as long as you arrive after the Triforce has been touched.

Look Out, Rock Band: Here Come the Musicals

Look Out, Rock Band: Here Come the Musicals
Do you linger in the corner at parties when people whip out their fake plastic instruments? Do you long to take the mic, not for Metallica, but for a couple of show tunes? Then the latest from Andrew Lloyd Webber will thrill you down to the tips of your little toes: Webber’s Really Useful Group is apparently looking to turn some of the world’s most popular musicals into video games.

Obsolote Floppy Disk Becomes Equally Obsolete CD-R Disc

Obsolote Floppy Disk Becomes Equally Obsolete CD-R Disc
Feeling retro? If you’ve got a hankering to cram an old 3.5″ floppy disk into your computer, but it has no floppy drive, now you can live out your floppy fantasies by stuffing one into your almost as outdated CD-R drive.

Just Cooler Notebook Coolers With Built-in Speakers: Not Just Cool

Just Cooler Notebook Coolers With Built-in Speakers: Not Just Cool
I’m sure some of you have seen Brando’s quirky notebook cooling pads, the ones that have HDD slots that leave the attached drive’s butt hanging in the air. Just Cooler’s cooling pads aren’t as weird, but they have their own gimmick: their latest models have built-in speakers.
