What was the last thing you bought at a vending machine? A can of soda? A magazine? A bike? A gold nugget? Live bait? Woman’s Day’s Brynn Mannino made a list of some of the weirdest vending machines we have today.
Rubber Ninjas, originally released for OS X, is available at last for PC users. Okay, it really didn’t take that long (a few months), and you’ve probably never even heard of Rubber Ninjas anyway. I just wanted to highlight that we got something before you guys did for once.
And if you haven’t heard of Rubber Ninjas, listen up: it’s a ragdoll fighting game.
Pepper grinders are, by their very nature, kind of cool. Gives you an active role in the spicing of your food, at least. But this particular pepper grinder is in a whole different realm of cool, being that it’s shaped like a tetromino.
Shown here are Flickr user thinkchildthink’s Tetris-inspired pepper grinder, salt shaker, and… uh, that extra piece.
This dramatic replacement case for the Xbox 360 is a great way to give your 360 system the much-needed makeover it deserves.
Despite its name, the new XCM Black Light Chameleon case doesn’t actually have a black light in it.
The folks at Cubeecraft just posted a cardboard NES console template, which you can download here, but they didn’t make templates for cardboard NES controllers. Or cardboard NES games.
Or a cardboard power cord. Or a cardboard RCA jack.
I’m not so excited about 3D imaging – still can’t print them, for one – but I approve of this 3D digital camera from Fujifilm, because its built-in LCD screen lets you view 3D images and videos without having to wear those headache-inducing 3D glasses.
Okay, so LED-equipped headphones aren’t that useless, because as the video below shows, people can put it on when they’re jogging at night. But I’m sure the incessant blinking of the LEDs will tempt motorists to run you over anyway.
As its name implies, the LEDs in Blink headphones sync with the music being played, allowing you to induce epileptic seizures within a 5-foot radius simply by listening to Squarepusher.
This has to be one of the weirdest movie and franchise tie-ins ever: just in time for the live action movie, there’s a G.I. Joe-themed version of Norton Antivirus, complete with its own website.
It seems like the kind of thing that would be fanart, or the product of a Photoshop contest, not a real tie-in, and yet there it is, with a website and all.
We’ve seen some pretty badass bento around here, but nothing quite like the Rubik’s Cubewich, a puzzling and meaty creation that’s almost too clever to be eaten. Almost.
Salami, kielbasa, cheese, bread–there’s all sorts of goodness in this cubewich!
Well, that was sudden. After months of vague words regarding the release of Fat Princess, the controversial (to some) strategy game from Titan Studios, suddenly it’s got a date… and that date is this Thursday. Whaaat?
I’m sure you’ve all had your share of frustration opening up those annoying heat-sealed plastic clamshell packages. I’ve certainly had a war-wound or two from the nasty sharp edges as I tried desperately to crack into my new gadgets and goodies.
The Choken-Bako dog bank features a hyperactive dog for a teller. Just place your money on its bowl and it will “eat” it. Actually there’s a slot on the bowl that’s connected to the coin box; the dog’s mouth just pushes the money into the slot.
I don’t think the dog cares exactly what it is that’s placed on its bowl, it’ll eat it anyway.
The latest member of Kingston’s Data Traveler USB drives is the Data Traveler 300, a flash disk with a gigantic 256 GB data capacity. 256 GB. That’s more than 50 DVDs. More than 40,000 songs. In your pocket.
Compared to all the other Japanese gadgets we’ve seen, the Sushi Train Restaurant and Game is only mildly Japanese – i.e. not so weird. It’s a literal take on the popular conveyor belt sushi restaurants, which are also known as – wait for it – sushi trains.
