From the minds behind The Maw comes ‘Splosion Man, a colorful action platformer packed with hilarious achievements and visuals that are at times evocative of Wall-E.
You may be able to guess what ‘Splosion Man is about.
I’m not sure why this Star Wars AT-ST is pink. Oh, and blue, and yellow, and… well. You see. It’s bright. You could aim logs at this walker from quite a distance away.
Evil looks good in bright colors.
Graphic designers Pierre Smeets and Damien Aresta, known collectively as pleaseletmedesign, teamed up with professional race car driver Stef van Campenhoudt to…create a font. But hey, if you were given the choice between sitting in front of a computer all day and watching a pro racer trace Qs and Zs to make a font, you’d choose the latter too.
The Darth Vader lightsaber flashlight is equipped with 4 LED lights and has various authentic sound effects.
I guess that’s all a lightsaber can do in the hands of mere mortals. I’m also wondering if the red light is any good for illumination, or for adding a sense of dread on dark nights.
ASUS recently announced their new T1 series of widescreen LCD TV/monitor hybrids. The T1 series is designed for locations where you want to use both a computer and watch television on a single display.
They will be available in 22″, 24″ and 27″ variants.
Who will win: the gigantor Xbox 360, or the lovable mascots of Nintendo? Unfortunately for Microsoft, the ‘box has been cast in the role of villain in this piece, and you know what happens to the villains….
Samus, Link, and Mario taking on the 360 a la old school Final Fantasy.
I don’t understand the concept behind TV mirrors. Look: you either use the mirror or watch TV. You don’t see people selling a book-in-a-book do you? But as I always say, folks, it’s your money. If spending thousands of dollars on a tiny LCD screen is your thing, then Seura’s The One TV mirror might just be the one for you.
I know we give Mario, Pac-Man, Space Invaders and Sonic plenty of geek craft love around here, but do you guys remember a little video game called Lemmings? I think I must have spent a million and one hours playing this game, despite the fact the concept really was just a 2-dimensional escort mission on steroids.
Yum. This popsicle-shaped hard drive looks good enough to eat. Unfortunately, magnetic platters and circuit boards don’t taste very good. I speak from personal experience.
Currently a concept design from Korean design firm mintpass, this portable storage device is called the “Mint Hard”, which, as it turns out is supposed to be quite funny in Korea, as the word “hard” is also used to refer to an ice cream bar.
The Hunt and Peck Keyboard sports an alternative layout, one that has the letters arranged alphabetically. You can toggle between the traditional QWERTY layout and the “logical” ABCDE layout with the press of a button. The function keys are also mapped to type in commonly used abbreviations like ASAP and IMO.
You know, after Mothra, after Godzilla–and let’s not forget Mechagodzilla–the Japanese ought to know better. By which I mean… making a moth bot? Way to go, guys. You’ve just killed us all.
Japanese studies on insect brains recently led a team of researchers to wire a moth to a robot.
Some say that the best motivation is the fear of humiliation. Want to graduate at the top of your batch? Tell everyone you know! Supposedly this will make you work extra hard, because you already gave your word, and failure will only give the people around you the license to point out how much of a loser you are.
Okay, perhaps I’m being a little ridiculous with my title there, but I’m torn between thinking this new development from Microsoft is both funny and completely horrible. Microsoft’s adding all sorts of new ads to the Xbox 360 interface, and now there’s a patent for walking billboard avatars who hang around in avatar-supported games.
See that little guy?
I just love the look of these luscious retro-modern headphones. Named for the rotational speed of classic vinyl records, these Eskuché 33 and 1/3 headphones should be great for listening to any music, whether recorded on a vinyl platter or in the digital ether.
Each pair is loaded up with LR Soundsystems’ drivers rated at 20Hz to 20KHz frequency range and 112 dB sensitivity.
Hitachi’s data storage brand SimpleTech wants a piece of the tree-hugging techie market, so they’ve come up with the [re]Drive, a 500GB external hard drive that’s packaged in recyclable aluminum, and “renewable, naturally grown bamboo.” Are we making test tube bamboos now?
I’m no Star Wars fan, so I wouldn’t know if there’s any canonical reason for Hasbro to bundle Mighty Muggs figures of Darth Vader, Darth Maul and Darth Revan (of KotOR fame) together with … Han Solo in a Hoth hoodie.
All I can think of is that people will be so weirded out after they purchase this that they’ll feel compelled to buy the other, similarly randomly packaged Mighty Muggs.
