Happy 25th anniversary, Buckyball! Welcome Google visitors! (9/4/2010)
Hey guys! Let’s play a game! I call it “Hazard!” Here’s how it goes: I describe something, and you tell me the answer in the form of a question.
Here’s a really big television set for those of you who have an equally large bankroll. Now if someone wanted to give me a 103-inch television set, I certainly wouldn’t complain. But with a retail price of about $130,000, this massive set seems like quite an extravagance in these challenging economic times.
Aaaaaand action! You’re late for a meeting. Your heart is beating so fast and so loud. You get in your car. You start the car. You drive off. You are fast; you are speed itself. But you’re pretty sure you’re still late.
Mama is about to become Cornering-A-Market Mama with yet another branch of what is becoming a serious franchise: Crafting Mama is set to join Gardening Mama and Cooking Mama in the triple crown of simulation mini-games.
Sometimes, the best things in life… well, they aren’t free, but they can come with minimal effort, at least. Apparently, on the scale of PSP mods, this paintjob/LED-addition combo is only “average” difficulty.
…to which I say, well this might be a simpler mod if you happen to be an experienced modder.
iBaker cornburstt made her friend a bunch of birthday cupcakes. Since her friend made an iPhone app – a Rubik’s cube for the iPhone – she decided to make iPhone cupcakes. iYummy.
If you ask me I’d say those are iPhone icon cupcakes, but I can’t bake and I don’t own an iPhone so.
Thinking about picking up a new iPod Shuffle 3G, but think the basic brushed aluminum and black case designs a little drab for your flashy style? Miss the wide color selection of earlier 3G Shuffles? Well now you can brighten up your 3G with a fresh coat of color – for a price.
Fresh off the boat from Japan, these miniature remote control cars let you tool around as the characters from Mario Kart.
These Q-Steer cars from TakaraTomy let drive around using a pocket-size infrared remote control. Each one features the likeness of one of your favorite characters, and they can run on different frequencies so you can race against your friends.
We’ve already featured a sample of crafter punzie’s products before, a set of Pac-Man ghost pillows. Now she’s creating stuff based on Super Mario games, like a Baby Mario baby blanket or a Shooting Star baby blanket.
If you were wondering what other kinds of games might come to the new Nintendo DSi’s download service, beyond simple applications like flipbooks, then rest assured that DSiWare looks awesome. How awesome? Phantasy Star awesome.
The DSiWare title, called Phantasy Star Zero Mini (no, really), is apparently some sort of companion to Phantasy Star Zero for the DS itself, though just what kind of companion, there’s no telling.
Space Invaders fans, here’s a fun way to save your spare change – if you happen to live in Japan, that is.
This Space Invaders piggy bank looks just like a miniature cocktail table version of the classic arcade shooter.
As much fun as a game of paintball can be, there’s nothing fun about trying to get all that paint out of your hair and off your skin. This fun shooter replaces the messy paint with chalk, making cleanup a bit easier – although god only knows what all that chalk dust will do for your lungs.
Finally: A Ninja Turtle-friendly mouse. How could all of you mouse-manufacturers ignore this demographic? Is it because there are only 4 of them? Well if you gave them usable mice earlier then they would have found dates online, don’t you think?
I’m deeply saddened to report that everyone’s favorite speedy, spiny gaming mammal, Sonic the Hedgehog was found dead today at the age of 18.
Run down in the prime of his life, it’s unknown why Sonic was wandering around this parking lot in the North of England.
How many times have you accidentally taken your USB flash drive into the swimming pool, only to find all your data destroyed when you towel off? What’s that you say? None times? That’s alright, we’ve got an invention for you anyway.
Have you ever seen those headless paintings or headless cardboard figures in parks or zoos or movie theaters? The ones where you can place your head where the head of the thing should be, such that you look exactly what an idiot would look like?
