Plug Mug Renders Your Mug Useless – Take That You Coffee Cup Thieves!
How many times have you walked into the employee break room to grab a cup of Joe, only to find that some ass-hat has “borrowed” your coffee cup out of the cabinet? Well now, you can finally do something to make sure that your mug is safe from pilfering by…

Tetris Machine: the Blocks Get Real

Tetris Machine: the Blocks Get Real
This collaboration between UK mixed-media artist Chrissie MacDonald and photographer Dominic Lee envisions what Tetris might look like on some newfangled 3-dimensional computing platform that uses physical blocks to let you play the classic Russian puzzler. The whole thing seems slightly impractical to me – with only that much height,…

Beautiful Bytes: Distellamap Presents Codes of Classic Video Games

Beautiful Bytes: Distellamap Presents Codes of Classic Video Games
There’s geek art, and then there’s geek art. Ben Fry’s creations are to programmers what blueprints are to architects. Here’s a sample of his work, which he calls “distellamaps”. It’s a map of the code for the Atari version of Pac-Man: Ben Fry explains, “Like any other game console, Atari…

Wii Breakfast Just Might be an Awesome Game. Not.

Wii Breakfast Just Might be an Awesome Game. Not.
With games like Cooking Mama and peripherals like the Wii Fit, Nintendo is raking in bajillions of money by making video games out of everyday tasks. This though, would definitely fall under the “you are flippin’ overdoing it” category. Comedybox Sketch proudly presents: Wii Breakfast. Yup, that there’s an egg…

Olympus μ9000 Digicam: Beauty is in the 10% Larger Than Normal Eyes of a Person

Olympus μ9000 Digicam: Beauty is in the 10% Larger Than Normal Eyes of a Person
Our eyes are one of our most distinguishing features; change them even just a bit and the consequences are sure to be dramatic. Put a green mask over Dick Grayson’s eyes and suddenly people won’t recognize him, all they see is this young and athletic sidekick doomed to wear a…

Worlds Smallest Gadgets: Too Small for My Fat Fingers

Worlds Smallest Gadgets: Too Small for My Fat Fingers
Thanks to breakthroughs in miniaturization, electronic gadgets keep getting tinier and tinier. But this is just ridiculous. These teeny-weeny computers, consoles and consumer electronics are actually made out of paper. Created by papercraft artist Sonicscape Jun (the same guy who gave us the microscopic Nintendo DS Lite), these iconic paper…

Forget That Fish-Eye: Sony Dsc-Hx1 Cybershot Can Take 224° Panoramic Shots

Forget That Fish-Eye: Sony Dsc-Hx1 Cybershot Can Take 224° Panoramic Shots
I’m not that into photography so I can’t say I’m excited about Sony’s new cybershot, the DSC-HX1, but it’s packed with a lot of features that I think will get many enthusiasts excited. One of the DSC-HX1’s features that Sony is flaunting is it’s ability to take “sweeping panoramic shots”,…

Modder Squeezes Famicom Into Famicom Cart (Sort of)

Modder Squeezes Famicom Into Famicom Cart (Sort of)
Here’s what this looks like: a workable, playable Famicom cartridge modded to contain an entire Famicom. But oh how deceiving looks can be. Really, this is a Yinlips media player with a Famicom emulator stuffed into a business card holder shaped like a Famicom cart. But the result looks great…

Plants Vs. Zombies: the Epic Battle for Your Casual Gaming Time

Plants Vs. Zombies: the Epic Battle for Your Casual Gaming Time
Zombies have become increasingly popular in recent years, since everyone loves a good flesh-eating apocalypse, but the walking dead haven’t quite been used in all possible scenarios yet. You can even find references to zombies fighting Godzilla, for heaven’s sake (or a zombie Godzilla, which may happen after the aforementioned…

Amazon Wants Your Used Games

Amazon Wants Your Used Games
Here’s a development for Amazon lovers (and shut-ins) everywhere: the online retailer has decided to get into the used game trade-in… uh, trade. Just search for the game in question, print a shipping label, and send it in. Step two (or, actually, four)? You get money. Of course, you’re probably…

Long-Ass PS3 Ad Measures Data by Sunflowers

Long-Ass PS3 Ad Measures Data by Sunflowers
Gigabytes? Pssh. The Cell processor is the future. Of what exactly I don’t know, but it’s the future. The Cell is in each and every Playstation 3. Sony makes Playstation 3s. So if Sony says that 5GB of data equals 5 sunflowers then 5GB of data equals 5 sunflowers. This…

From a Mousehole Far, Far Away: Star Wars Mice

From a Mousehole Far, Far Away: Star Wars Mice
The creations of Anna aka TheHouseofMouse are like felt minifigs. Except that they’re mice. She currently has 131 micefig designs, from King Tutankhamen Mouse to Hannibal Lecter Mouse. Yes, the one with the mask. She also has sweet Star Wars micefigs too. Let’s start with the heroes of the Light…

Mario Hits the Streets of New York

Mario Hits the Streets of New York
Mario, as seen on the streets of New York City (on 23rd st between 10th and 11th). I have a funny feeling that whatever is down at the other end of those pipes is a lot less pleasant than the bowels of the Mushroom Kingdom. [Wooster Collective via Digg]…

Female Space Invaders: I Don’T Remember This Part of the Video Game

Female Space Invaders: I Don’T Remember This Part of the Video Game
I was perusing the dark recesses of eBay’s DVD auctions when I came across this little gem. Featuring such greats as David Hasselhoff, Christopher Plummer and Marjoe Gortner, this 1979 low-budget schlock ripoff on Star Wars’ popularity was originally titled Starcrash, but later got renamed to Female Space Invaders, presumably…

Are you constantly missing the UPS guy because you didn’t hear them knock on the door? Or maybe you’re just sick of the old “ding-dong” of your doorbell. Well this doorbell is most certainly going to get your attention – or at least annoy the crap out of you. With…
