Want to know who keeps on stealing your drink from the office fridge? The drink that you so clearly labeled with your full name along with a fingerprint of your right thumb to eliminate all ambiguity as to the ownership of said drink?
Battery life is always an issue with portable gaming systems, especially with the PSP’s power-sucking UMD drive. You can always buy a second battery, but what if you also own a DS? Well if you own both then I guess you have enough money to buy a second battery for that one too.
Whatever your particular (or peculiar) pleasure, there’s a novelty USB drive to fit your freaks. Robots, jewelry, supply dispensers, waterproof submarines (what?)… and those are some of the more normal notions for USB drives out there.
Sure, it’s only April, but you know what they say–every year, it’s earlier with the Christmas decorations, so why not beat the rush? It’s tempting when we’re talking about five bucks for handmade ornaments featuring iconic images from popular Xbox 360 games.
It’s important, of course, that we all do what we can to preserve Earth as we know it. Sure. But that doesn’t mean you have to be stodgy about it. You can, for instance, emblazon messages of eco-awareness across your chest as part of an effort to raise visibility for the cause.

Did you know that a year’s worth of human excrement is equivalent to 2.1 gallons of diesel? Well it is. So says Ole Jakob Johansen, an officer at Oslo, Norway’s city hall. And Johansen isn’t just spouting random, disgusting trivia: in 2010 Norway’s capital will start rolling out buses fueled with methane, which in turn will be extracted from sewage.
BioShock’s Big Daddies seem to turn up in all sorts of forms. You can make an edible Big Daddy, or hang out with a lifesized Big Daddy, or, if you like the square-headed variety, you can do what this guy did: make a Big Daddy out of LEGOs.
The Mr. Bump alarm clock is very weird but also very appropriate: when its alarm goes off, you can turn it off by hurling it against a wall, or against any hard surface I guess. It’s a gadget that risks being destroyed in order to function, and yet it’s also a gadget that knows its users’ probable response.
30 versions of the USS Enterprise are being distributed to cinemas across the United States to promote the upcoming Star Trek movie. Each 34-in replica was cast from the same 3D model made for the movie by Industrial Light & Magic.
The people behind Scarpar wanted to “extend the snowboard season” which they say is quite brief in Australia. Some say that the skateboard was made so that surfers could still surf even if waves were flat.
Unlike the other Lego-inspired audio gear we’ve featured here, this LEGO boombox actually bears the Danish toy company’s stamp. It’s quite cheap too, at $40. Who says authentic stuff has to be expensive?
