Pac-Man Ghost Lamps: Blinky, Blinky, Blinky and Blinky
Designer Anderson Horta’s retro 80’s Ghost lamps will only turn blue if you happen to be downing some serious hallucinogenic power pills – otherwise, they are as you see them. Pac-Man not included.

Xbox 360 Arcade Cabinet for Serious Gamers

Xbox 360 Arcade Cabinet for Serious Gamers
There are two things that have to be said about this custom Xbox 360 arcade cabinet: it’s big (like the original Xbox, only even bigger) and it’s pretty pricey. Only serious Xbox devotees need apply at $2250… but that is, after all, cheaper than a lot of gaming PCs, and it would take quite the pimped-out PC to match this project.

Gadget Secretary Truecall is Telemarketer’S Worst Enemy

Yuen’to Music Ball: Expensive Speaker in a Small, Nearly Useless Package
How much would you pay for a 0.7 watt portable speaker that’s more cute than functional? $76.16!?! How the hell did you know that the Yuen’to Music Ball cost that much? Get outta here! I mean, you probably already know that it has a 3.5 mm stereo jack, so it’ll fit with most portable players.

Camera Lens Calendar F. Stops in the Year 2038

Camera Lens Calendar F. Stops in the Year 2038
Photographer Sharad Haksar chiseled this unique camera lens calendar from a single block of aluminum. I love the idea, but at $2000 for a calendar that runs out of years in 2038, I don’t know I could justify the $66+ per year price tag.

Geek Shirts to Wear in Case You Really have to Go Outside
I’ve been doing my usual window shopping and thought I’d share some of the funny geek shirts I saw at Snorg Tees. They’re all made of “100% Super Soft” cotton and are priced at $19 each.

I Came, I Saw, I Played Zelda Ii in Latin

I Came, I Saw, I Played Zelda Ii in Latin
If you’re not above playing a hacked ROM or two, you can experience something truly special: Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, in Latin. Or should I say Zelda II: Expeditio Linci? It sounds more dignified somehow.

History of the Internet Told via Cool Minimalist Icons
Mehli Bilgil, a student at the University of Applied Sciences in Mainz, Germany, created an animated documentary about the history of the Internet. Unlike other documentaries, Mehli Bilgil’s documentary contains no interviews, real world footage or image, not even a single shot of a PC or server.

NES Quilt Celebrates Nostalgic Diversity
There’ve been a lot of bad-ass 8-bit quilts spread across the Internet, but usually, they’re dedicated to one game, serving as a showcase for a single NES-era memory. Not so with this quilt; this bad boy is more about the entire experience, so it’s fitting that it’s called “THE” Nintendo Quilt.

Dead Rising 2 Announced for PS3, Xbox 360 and Pc: Zombies, Motorcycles and Vegas, What’S Not to Like?
Capcom today confirmed that Dead Rising 2 is coming to not only the Xbox 360, but to the PS3 and PC too. Not too much else is known yet, but any game that involves bashing zombies over the head with a roulette wheel is fine by me.

LED Chairs Light Up Your Backside With Color
Perfect for lighting up your drab living space, these Léon and Max chairs from French designer Philippe Boulet light up using color-changing RGB LEDs inside the seats, backs, and armrests. And best of all, they’re not tacky in the least.
