Mods and hacks aren’t always about looking good; often the more clever and crafty individuals among us will bend their minds to  making something more versatile in order to fill a need.

Band Uses Iphones, Vocal Cords to Cover Mgmt Song
Sure, the iPhone looks good, but can it make a sandwich? Wash the car? Serve as instruments for an entire band?

Star Wars geeks claim that R2-D2 was inspired by a character in a Kurosawa film plus the robots in Silent Running plus an overheard request from a sound editor. Riiiight. Here’s the real score: In 1975 George Lucas invented a Time Machine and fast forwarded himself to 1999.

The concept behind the TV remote control gun is simple: Boring task + gun = fun! Pull the trigger and it’ll change the channel on your TV with a satisfying gunshot sound. Okay, so it’s fun for like 5 minutes.

World of Warcraft Beer Steins for When the Raid Goes Badly
This is it, folks. The final piece. Now you can cosplay as a World of Warcraft character while eating WoW-themed snacks at a WoW-themed computer in a room painted to resemble something from WoW, and you can do it all while drinking from one of these (very expensive) steins.
