Gakken Mm Circuit Micro Race Car Drives Around the World to the Left

Gakken Mm Circuit Micro Race Car Drives Around the World to the Left
This diminutive race car from Japan does one thing really well – it drives around in a circle, over and over again. While it’s not quite as exciting as watching hillbillies turning left a NASCAR race (sarcasm), at least you get a front-row seat to this tiny little race whenever you want.

Freaky Dali-Esque Clock is Twirlin’, Not Meltin’

Freaky Dali-Esque Clock is Twirlin’, Not Meltin’
The first thing I do when I do when I wake up after a night of heavy drinking is sleep again. Or massage my temples and groan. Alcohol either makes the world spin faster or it makes me more sensitive to the earth’s rotation.

Hey, You Got Your Camera in My Roll of Film!

Hey, You Got Your Camera in My Roll of Film!
There’s something just so wrong it’s right about this wacky camera. At first glance you’ll think this is just a gigantic roll of 35mm film. But pop open the side, and it reveals an actual 35mm camera under the hood.

Mini Mp3 Amps Don’t Go to 11, but Will Rock the (Doll) House
These nifty little speaker systems look just like classic electric guitar amps, only a whole lot smaller. Modeled after classic amps by musical greats Marshall and US Blues, these teensy little amps are perfect for the rocker in your house.

Learn What Time It is With Karlsson’S Book Table Clocks

Learn What Time It is With Karlsson’S Book Table Clocks
We’ve already featured several quirky clocks from Karlsson, but these two designs grabbed my attention because they’re unique but still modest. Karlsson calls them table clocks, but I think they’ll be more at home on bookshelves.

The Latest Device From Aperture Science: Interactive Portal Shirt

The Latest Device From Aperture Science: Interactive Portal Shirt
I’ve seen a lot of geeky shirts, but these ones take the cake. Or not. Think Geek‘s April Fools offering for this year are “interactive portal shirts”, that mimic the portal effect popularized by Valve’s first-person puzzler.

Computer Mailboxes Receive Snail Mail, Not E-Mail

Computer Mailboxes Receive Snail Mail, Not E-Mail
Even though we already have e-mail, I think it will still take some time before we abandon snail mails. In the mean time, why don’t we give our plain old mailboxes a (fake) hardware upgrade? Here are a couple of ideas to get you started.

Blow Your Keyboard Dirt Away

Blow Your Keyboard Dirt Away
When you talk about blowing dirt off of electronics, most people think, of course, of plain ol’ canned air. And that works fine, sure, but the prank potential is fairly limited. With this gun-shaped keyboard brush, however, you can do all sorts of things, from tickling a co-worker’s nose with the dusty end of the brush to using it it to scare the heck out of that guy in HR with the attitude problem.

Dream Tablet Mod Flattens Out the Dreamcast

Dream Tablet Mod Flattens Out the Dreamcast
Modder Ben Heckendorm’s forums are always packed with portable projects, but this one’s a little different. You’ve got to hook up a separate controller, but that’s hardly anything to complain about when we’re talking about a Sega Dreamcast shoved into the body of a tablet PC.

Instant Bonfire: Giant Lighter

Instant Bonfire: Giant Lighter
Light up all of grandma’s 98 birthday candles at once with this giant lighter! Or surprise the hell out of anyone who asks if you’ve got a light. This fully-functional lighter measures a whopping 6.5″  x 4.5″.

Logitech Marble Mouse: It’S Cheap, It’S Comfortable, Looks Like a Baby Robot, and It’S Actually a Trackball

Logitech Marble Mouse: It’S Cheap, It’S Comfortable, Looks Like a Baby Robot, and It’S Actually a Trackball
If you have a small computer desk, it would be better if you used a trackball instead of an ordinary mouse. Says the guy who still uses a 3-inch mouse. Anyway. Apparently trackballs are very comfortable and can greatly reduce the strain on your wrist.

Washboard Hero: Harmonix Goes for the Country/Bluegrass Demo

Washboard Hero: Harmonix Goes for the Country/Bluegrass Demo
With the amazing popularity of music and rhythm games like Guitar Hero and Rock Band, it was only a matter of time before game companies would release a version targeted to more rural musical tastes. Later this Spring, Harmonix will release Washboard Hero, the newest game in the popular franchise on store shelves across the heartland of America.

Journey to the Final Final Frontier With the Star Trek Casket and Star Trek Urn

Journey to the Final Final Frontier With the Star Trek Casket and Star Trek Urn
How much of a Trekkie (or -er) are you? How far would you go? Roleplaying? Dressing up in costumes? Being fired into space in a photon torpedo casket? I’m not a Star Trek fan, but I must admit that the casket’s really decent; the logo is fairly small and the Photon Torpedo-inspired design is sleek.

Vinyl Atari Cartridges Way Bigger Than Regular Cartridges

Vinyl Atari Cartridges Way Bigger Than Regular Cartridges
So let’s say you just happen to have a lot of vinyl lying around. Do you: a) re-upholster your car in a fit of retro fever, b) create some fetish wear, or c) stitch together a few giant Atari cartridges?

No Sweat: Hello Kitty Netbook Runs Windows 7 Aero and Photoshop Cs3

No Sweat: Hello Kitty Netbook Runs Windows 7 Aero and Photoshop Cs3
