Even the Best Pixel Art is Kinda Square

Even the Best Pixel Art is Kinda Square
You know, square? Like pixels? Oh, lame jokes, never desert me… and internets, please never stop supplying fantastic fan art. Even the dog from Duck Hunt–my most despised video game nemesis ever–looks great here. Pixel art is a funny thing: it’s both simple and complicated.

Remote-Controlled Rat: Because You Can Never have Enough Rodents
Live in a rat-infested fleabag of an apartment? Well even if you don’t, you can still scare the beejezus out of your roommates with your very own remote-controlled rat. With its light-up red eyeballs, I wouldn’t necessarily call this rat-on-wheels “lifelike”.

Ms. Pac-Man: the Best Arcade Game Ever?

USB Cell Turns Your Computer Into a Charger
Although they’re nearly twice as expensive as traditional rechargeable batteries, the USBCell from Moixa Energy can be recharged via USB, so if you keep your computer on most of the day, might as well use those extra USB ports to charge the batteries instead of spending extra for a battery charger.

Big Science at Neatorama: Expensive, Complicated & Awesome

Big Science at Neatorama: Expensive, Complicated & Awesome
The latest Neatorama exclusive talks about large-scale experiments and research and the massive and complex equipment that they require.

Game Over SNES Casemod From a Clearly Disturbed Mind

Game Over SNES Casemod From a Clearly Disturbed Mind
I’ve seen some interesting Super Nintendo casemods in my time, but never one quite this whacked out. The Game Over casemod looks like a console that’s been possessed by Satan or something. The console looks like it’s been bludgeoned with an axe, bled all over, burned and then possessed by some demonic power.

Rewind Your Headphone Cord With a Microcassette Tape
Hate all that excess cord you end up with when you wear your headphones? This fun little accessory lets you hide that spare cord with wit and whimsy.
