If you’ve been planning on buying both a desktop PC and a netbook, you might want to check out Dell’s Studio XPS deal: if you purchase the $1, 380 USD Studio XPS desktop, Dell will give you the option to get their Mini 9 netbook for only $99 USD.
Sony unveiled three new “DVD-integrated home theater solutions” this week, the DAV-HDX587WC, the DAV-HDX589W and the DAV-HDX285. No, I did not make those names up. Now I’m sitting here, going back and forth between the 587WC’s and the 589W’s product spec sheets, truly, deeply, sincerely wishing that I made this mess up, because for the life of me I cannot tell the difference between the two.
When I was a kid, I really wanted to be Marvin the Martin. No, not because of his stylish scrub-brush headgear or his oversize clown shoes. Nope, it was the awesome destructive power of his ACME Ray Gun that I envied.
In what has to be one of the oddest trends I’ve seen, Japanese company Bird Electron has produced a set of speakers built to resemble octopus traps. As you might have guessed, octopus traps are used to catch octopi.
Crafter/felt baker/goth pastry master ckrolczyk probably got tired of seeing lookalike gingerbread men and set out to redeem the great Gingerbread name with these wacky, felt gingerbread…beings. I would expect no less from someone with a username like ckrolczyk.
If you happen to meet an Indonesian man and you tell him that you like watching TV programs at Hulu, he may tell you that he just likes staring at Hulus. That’s because “Hulu” means “butt” in Indonesian.
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. In this case, a wheelchair-bound Guitar Hero enthusiast needed to find a way to circumvent the kick pedal on the World Tour drum set.
Sure, the iPhone looks good, but can it make a sandwich? Wash the car? Serve as instruments for an entire band? Mark that last item off the list of outrageous demands, because British band The Mentalists have managed to perform an entire song using only the power of several iPhones (and their own voices).
In this case, no one can hear you scream. The Alien Assimilation Playstation 3 casemod is definitely going to give me nightmares tonight. I’m not really sure what’s going on in there, but it couldn’t possibly be good.
Ever wanted to hug an accurate representation of the Black Death bacterium? Or punt an Athlete’s Foot fungus for all those embarrassing years in high school? Or play house with a sperm cell and an egg cell?
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.
At first glance, I thought this seafaring sports car was the underwater Lotus Esprit from The Spy Who Loved Me. Much to my amazement, it’s a real amphibious Lamborghini Countach built by Mike Ryan of SeaRoader.
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.
It’s been a good few years for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Not many teams have racked up two Super Bowl victories in such a short time. So what can we do to celebrate the team? Ogle a Steelers casemod, of course.
