At this week’s Game Developers Conference, a number of incredible new (and old) additions were announced for the Wii’s downloadable game services, but the one that really gets me going is this: arcade titles will be added to the Virtual Console lineup.
Sure, you can pick up a cheap disposable camera at the neighborhood convenience store for about $10 bucks, but why buy one of those when you can build your own for a few dollars more?
The SuperHeadz Plamodel 35mm camera kit lets you snap together your camera using die-cut pieces that are reminiscent of the first time you built a model car or airplane when you were a kid.

Pocket-sized projectors are the next big thing in projection technology. But most of the pocket projectors out there are priced from $300 to $400 and more. While this little projector isn’t as high resolution as others like the 3M MPro110, it is definitely cheaper.

What better way to store your important files than inside the body a tiny little robot?

The concept behind myKeyO‘s Keyboard Organizer is so simple it’s brilliant, turning an otherwise ordinary USB computer keyboard into a personal storage.
myKeyO takes advantage of the fact that today’s technology allows for very thin keyboards.
We’ve seen people put old Nintendo systems into all kinds of things, but I’m pretty sure this is the first time I’ve seen a Super Nintendo inside a toaster. I guess you just can’t deny that cartridges and slices of bread aren’t completely dissimilar.
Nintendo DS devotees have long hoped for a Katamary Damacy game on the versatile handheld, and since every other company in the history of gaming has jumped on the trend of remaking games for the current handhelds, it’s long been a disappointment that the franchise has been absent from Nintendo’s juggernaut.
