The RX-78 statue – 8th Wonder of the World, King of all Statues, Future Prime Minister – is finished. It’s done. It’s awesome. It’s bitchin. Japan the best. Japan is the Michael Jordan of nations. Japan is the knees of the bee’s knees.
Sony revealed a lot of things at E3, but a price cut wasn’t one of them. Now I don’t know if this new-old rumor has anything behind it, but Sterne Agee analyst Arvind Bhatia is claiming that “industry sources” are claiming that “a $100 price cut on the PS3 in mid-August, just prior the launch of Madden (8/18) and the start of the back to school shopping season.”
Kawasaki’s upcoming 1400 GTR may just be the world’s most technologically advanced bike on the planet, surpassing even the Blue Hawk and the Battle Hopper. Kidding. Expected to be unveiled this coming autumn, the 1400 GTR will be equipped with 2 infrared cameras on its rearview mirrors, giving the rider night vision, which can be displayed either via an onboard LCD or via a heads-up display that will be integrated into a helmet.
Vaporware manufacturer DuroSports Electronics wants to ease the transition from paper books to e-books with their Smell of Books scented sprays, specifically designed for e-book readers. Not. This is the kind of idea that’s so stupid it’s awesome, and for a while you’ll wish it was true.
I’m pretty sure that the guys at Ozaki love Brando. My proof? Ozaki’s iMini Pet. Like most of Brando’s gadgets, it’s a mish mash of functionality – in this case an iPod dock, a radio and an alarm clock – with a touch of weird – a stuffed pet that can “dance” as music is being played.
It’s a sad day for seller/mgs fan/sad person ids3remix, as he put up his limited edition gunmetal gray 40 GB Playstation 3 for sale on eBay. I think he really needs the money, stat, or else he wouldn’t be selling his beloved console.
I can admit it–I’m attracted to the idea of finding lost things in the sand or dirt, but there are two problems with traditional metal detectors: a) you have to carry them around (lame), and b) they’re pretty obviously metal detectors and you might as well throw on some black socks with your sandals.
First it was gold-plated toilet seats, and now we’ve got the most expensive government-produced weapon in the history of anything being used for grilling burgers. It would be a travesty if it wasn’t the coolest customization ever.
Modder/droog/man of the moment David Penfold aka Mremulator was inspired by an award-winning custom rig and decided to go totally bolshy yarblockos with his own build. First he picked orange and black for the colors of his SilverStone TJ07 computer case – which incidentally was the same model used in the custom pc that inspired him – and came up with the theme later: A Clockwork Orange.
Rock Band is missing a lot of rock bands that seem like obvious inclusions, and one of them is the longlived band Green Day. But not to fret, fans–the trio is on its way to a set of little plastic instruments near you.
Flash drives are becoming a popular item for the steampunk modding community, but projects like this are rare even so. This incredibly detailed piece of steampunk art sold out in a day at Etsy… even at the price of $165.
If you loved the last giant Tetris piece posted here, then this may just be your kind of shirt. Why build regular, boring buildings when instead you can turn construction into the world’s biggest game?
Though I’m still waiting for a flash game based on this crane-heavy concept (and no, the bright colors in Sim City don’t count), I can still enjoy all these artistic endeavors that celebrate the classic puzzle game.
The word “nano” got thrown around yet again as InnoDisk gave the world a glimpse of the future at the recently concluded Computex exhibit. This time it’s a solid state drive we’re talking about. So is it worthy of being called a nano SSD?
Welcome to another edition of Cute or Stupid?, a feature that I personally don’t want to do anymore but fate seems to want me to continue, so. Here we go: up for deliberation is the Super Mini Cube, allegedly the world’s tiniest speaker.
First we had the watch, and now we have a model. The 6-foot long remote-controlled RMS Titanic is a faithfully reproduced 1:150 scale model. It took 400 man-hours (that’s about 1600 dog-hours, or 879,592 mosquito-hours) to assemble.
