Zombie Mario Must have Run Out of Extra Lives

Zombie Mario Must have Run Out of Extra Lives
Mario is a popular guy, and he shows up on a lot of t-shirts and other wearables, but I think this is the first time I’ve seen him in zombie form on a shirt. If it wasn’t for the visible bits of brains, I might have just thought he’d had a particularly rough day in the Mushroom Kingdom.

Wall-E Windows Computer Casemod Gets Touchscreen Tummy

Wall-E Windows Computer Casemod Gets Touchscreen Tummy
After listening to his startup sound, I always figured that Wall-E ran on Mac OS. I guess I was wrong. From the looks of this casemod, the little yellow robot that could runs Windows XP. Modder Jonathan Berg put together this Wall-E PC mod that comes complete with a 7-inch touchscreen monitor inside his belly.

NES Controller Pulls Double Duty as Mouse

NES Controller Pulls Double Duty as Mouse
When you’re playing classic games, nothing beats using the original gamepad. In fact, the good ol’ NES controller is useful for all sorts of classic games, whether or not they were made by Nintendo. It’s comfortable and familiar.

Pac-Man Ghost T-Shirts Are Pixel Perfect
Retro-gaming fans have got to love thse Blinky, Inky, Pinky, Clyde and blue ghost t-shirts from LowRez.De. Pac-Man not included.

The Latest in Hamster-Based Video Game Technology

The Latest in Hamster-Based Video Game Technology
I’m not sure how I missed this great video clip when it first hit the Inter-tubes. Maybe I was too busy playing video games. The clip involves a hamster shimmying his way through a maze of dark jagged tunnels in search of an exit (and no, Richard Gere had nothing to do with this).

The Cutest Crochet R2-D2 You Will See Today

The Cutest Crochet R2-D2 You Will See Today
…and maybe ever. What makes this particular example of Star Wars amigurumi better than, say, crochet slave Leia or an adorable Chewbacca? Buttons and fittings. Oh, not just the little shiny button eyes–those are common, and this R2D2 has his own.

Dk T-Shirt, Now With Extra Bonus Hilarity

Dk T-Shirt, Now With Extra Bonus Hilarity
If Nintendo’s hulking DK (that’s Donkey Kong to those of us of the old school) is your huge-fisted hero of choice, you might appreciate this t-shirt. Look, it’s got the tie, the color scheme, and… uh… the pecs.

Electric Man Power Strip: This Little Guy Actually Enjoys 110-Volts Running Through His Body at All Times

Electric Man Power Strip: This Little Guy Actually Enjoys 110-Volts Running Through His Body at All Times
This electrical dude has got to be my favorite power strip ever. All other power cords in the universe should immediately be destroyed and replaced with an army of Electric Men. Do your part and head over to Urban Outfitters start plugging them in everywhere.

Jar Jar Binks Salad: Me Thinks No Thanks.

Jar Jar Binks Salad: Me Thinks No Thanks.
If you were to make a cake modeled after a fictional character,  you’ll use your favorite character as a model, wouldn’t you? I guess the reverse applies to salads, because someone – someone with mad Force Carving powers – made a Jar Jar Binks salad just because he would “be able to slice into it without remorse.”

Relive the Big and Chunky Days of Gadgets With Fauxsure Shirts

Relive the Big and Chunky Days of Gadgets With Fauxsure Shirts
Remember when controllers had corners and not curves? When speakers were bigger than a house? When storage was limited but personal? and rectangular? Remember when synths… Nevermind. Synthesizers still look the same. Oh wait. Remember when synths had no USB connection?

Solar Power Your Nintendo Ds

Solar Power Your Nintendo Ds
The Nintendo DS Lite boasts pretty decent battery life when fully charged… but why charge it at all? Slap a few solar panels on that bad boy and stop worrying where you left your charger. Not sure how to accomplish such a feat?

Bamboo Speakers Perfect for Pandas With Ipods

Bamboo Speakers Perfect for Pandas With Ipods
It not often these days that you see inexpensive portable speakers made out of anything but plastic. But these well-priced compact speakers are actually made of durable bamboo, a highly unusual material for speaker enclosures. According to the folks over at SourcingMap, the bamboo provides a more extensive sound range than other small speakers, but I’m not so sure given the less-than-stellar 300-10,000Hz frequency response range quoted on their site.

Burn During Reading [Best Bookmark Ever]

Burn During Reading [Best Bookmark Ever]
While everyone is all abuzz about the new Kindle 2 Wireless E-Book Reader, we at Technabob still like to occasionally crack open an old-fangled hardcover or paperback. At least we now have a nice way to keep track of what page we left off on.

Stop Singing in the Shower With the Waterproof Mp3 Player

Stop Singing in the Shower With the Waterproof Mp3 Player
The rivalry between water and consumer electronics is one of the most legendary rivalries known to man. It’s right up there with Itchy & Scratchy, WOW & Life, Me & College. Recognizing the tragic state of affairs between two of man’s most beloved things, gadget manufacturer/ peacekeeper of non-living things Tokyoflash stepped in and gave us two gigantic candles that poop gray sludge.

Star Wars Deathtroopers: Space Opera Horror?

Star Wars Deathtroopers: Space Opera Horror?
James Cameron’s Aliens didn’t really scare me. The aliens were disgusting, sure, but not scary. I don’t know, I guess I prefer supernatural stuff; there’s just something about sci-fi and the outer space as a setting that ruins it for me.
