Gears of War Imulsion Energy Drink: Mmmmm. Imulsion.

Gears of War Imulsion Energy Drink: Mmmmm. Imulsion.
The Gears of War geeks over at Gearspedia describe Imulsion as “a phosphorescent, highly volatile, low-viscosity fluid originally discovered by an oil exploration drill on the planet Sera.” They go on to say “direct exposure to Imulsion for any length of time will cause Locust subjects to transform into Lambent…

Puppy Dog Speakers Are Perfect for Your Maw-Maw Deccor

Puppy Dog Speakers Are Perfect for Your Maw-Maw Deccor
I’m not sure how I missed these when they hit the Japanese tech circuit earlier this year, but these little doggy speakers were just too kitschy for me to pass up. Made by the wacky folks at Japan Trust Technology, these puppy dog speakers will almost certainly evoke an “ooh”…

Nintendo 64 + Lazer Doodle + Psone = Darth64

Nintendo 64 + Lazer Doodle + Psone = Darth64
We already featured Jon Jandran aka Hailrazer’s awesome Dreamcast portable mod, the dreamtrooper. He originally wanted to paint the dreamtrooper’s case black and call it the DarthCast, but he decided to stick with the original console’s white color. But he also ended up stuffing a Nintendo 64 into a Lazer…

Rise From Your Grave, Apple Tablet Development Rumors

Rise From Your Grave, Apple Tablet Development Rumors
You just can’t keep a good rumor down. One would think Apple aficionados would have enough to talk about, what with Snow Leopard now gracing the machines of any Mac-owner willing to pony up the paltry $29 Apple asking price. I guess not.…

Shmups Come to Dsiware Japan, Rest of World Sheds Bitter Tears

Shmups Come to Dsiware Japan, Rest of World Sheds Bitter Tears
If you were smart fortunate enough to have picked up a Japanese DSi, you’re going to want to check this out: Aa Mujou Setsuna, a bullet-hell style vertical shmup available on the serious cheap: 500 Nintendo points. That’s five bucks, less than most gutbuster combo meals, and they’re lacking two…

Gscreen Spacebook: 2 Screens, 1 (Lap)Top

Gscreen Spacebook: 2 Screens, 1 (Lap)Top
Gizmodo scored a few up close photos of the gScreen Spacebook, a laptop with two 15.4-inch LED-backlit screens. It was designed with “professional designers, filmmakers, photographers” and the military in mind, but I’m sure there are gamers who are already saving up for the privilege of owning a portable dual-screen…

The Softest Toad You’Ll Ever See

The Softest Toad You’Ll Ever See
Toad is probably the cutest character from the Mario ‘verse (Mario in various boots and outfits aside), but he doesn’t show up as often as many of the other characters in crafts outside of cosplay, which is why I was so thrilled to see this adorable knitted version. He’s all…

Solar Cap Fan: Don’T Know if It’S Enough to Keep You Cool, but It Definitely Won’T Make You Look Hot

Solar Cap Fan: Don’T Know if It’S Enough to Keep You Cool, but It Definitely Won’T Make You Look Hot
The weather here’s been very erratic in the past few years; we don’t get a lot of rain during the rainy season, and it rains quite a lot during the dry season. The only thing that I can be sure of is the unforgiving assault of heat and humidity, day…

Rare Red Original Mac Computer Up for Bid on Ebay

Rare Red Original Mac Computer Up for Bid on Ebay
This just in… It turns out the very first MAC computer was not released in 1984 by Apple. In fact, you can get your hands on a very rare candy apple red MAC made all the way back in 1980 if you’re the high bidder over on eBay. Gotcha! This…

Wahha Go Go Laughing Machine Looks as Creepy as It Sounds

Wahha Go Go Laughing Machine Looks as Creepy as It Sounds
It’s a little after 2 am, and you’re heading home. It’s dark. You’re alone. Suddenly you catch the sound of gears turning, tightening some unknown part. The sound bounces off the walls around you, amplifying. You shake it off and walk a bit faster. You can still hear the gears…

T-Rex USB Drive: Dinosaurs Became Extinct So You Could Save Your Data

T-Rex USB Drive: Dinosaurs Became Extinct So You Could Save Your Data
Hey kids! Meet T-Rex. He may be small – 6″ x 2.5″ x 6″ – for a dinosaur, but he’s willing to protect your files. And with those big claws and teeth, not even Swiper will risk the wrath of T-Rex!…

Giant LEGO Aliens Are Somehow Cute

Giant LEGO Aliens Are Somehow Cute
Aliens: not just for bursting out of your chest anymore. Now they’re in your LEGOs! The titular aliens from the Alien films are, in my opinion, right at the top of the scariness chart, which means I never, ever thought I’d say anything based on their design was at all…

A Tale of Two Mega Men

A Tale of Two Mega Men
It was the biggest of sprites, it was the smallest of sprites… no, wait, I mean they’re both right here next to one another, these Perler bead projects. It’s big Mega Man versus smaller Mega Man: The bigger Mega Man is almost two feet tall–and would look awesome on the…

Satanvision Red LED Tv: the Devil Made Him Do It

Satanvision Red LED Tv: the Devil Made Him Do It
What might television look like in hell? Maybe a bit like this. This incredibly lo-fi SatanVision television set was designed by David Forbes. It’s outputs of an unbelievably crappy 128×96 resolution image, and all of the pixels are red. Here it is playing the only video game they have in…

Ketron Sd8 Synthesizer has More Keys Than You’Ll Ever Need

Ketron Sd8 Synthesizer has More Keys Than You’Ll Ever Need
This wouldn’t be the first time I’ve written about a many-keyed synthesizer on technabob, but it is the first time I’ve featured one today. So there. The Ketron SD8 differentiates itself from the keyboard pack by offering a keyboard that isn’t based on the traditional 88-keyed piano, but instead on…

Conjoined Rubik’s Cubes Make My Head Spin
Puzzlemasters – if you’ve already figured out how to solve Rubik’s cube in under 9 seconds flat, you’re probably in need of a new challenge. Well here something that should keep you busy for at least 30 seconds. These insane Rubik’s cube derivations combine the power of multiple cubes to…
