Prisoner Inventions: Seems Like We Locked Up a Lot of Macgyvers
Going to prison is a bit like being a kid again, because you’re denied a lot of things. But most kids are largely content with make-believe toys and scenarios and even imaginary friends. Adults, on the other hand, won’t stop until they find alternatives.

Neuhaus T-2 USB Tube Amplifier: Simply Expensive. I Meant Exquisite.
Neuhaus Laboratories designed the T-2 with ease of use in mind, but of course with the high quality audio output that we’ve come to expect from Neuhaus. Okay I admit this is the first time I’ve heard of them.

DIY Asus Eee Keyboard: in Soviet Russia, You Make Your Own Computer
In Soviet Russia, you don’t wait for ASUS to release – no. In Soviet Russia, you make do with an old – no. In Soviet Russia, my jokes work. Anyway… A Russian geek stuffed the innards of an Eee PC 900 into a Sven Multimedia EL 4002 (pdf) keyboard.

An Xbox 360 for a Black Widow
If you don’t like spiders, this one’s probably not for you. Eye-catching, to say the least. Or is that fly-catching? Oh ho ho. This particular custom Xbox 360 mod is the work of deviantARTist AceCasanova, who has done a number of console paintjobs, like this one: Photo’s a little blurry, but the color is just incredible.

Plush Yoshi is Better Suited for Hugging Than Riding
This handmade plush Yoshi of Nintendo fame is straight up awesome… and its maker isn’t completely satisfied. Talk about perfectionism. At first glance, I thought that was professional work. If I’d seen this Yoshi in a store, I wouldn’t have thought twice about picking him up and giving him a squeeze.

The guys over at Chunnel.TV scrounged up the preview trailer for the original 1982 classic CGI flick, TRON and compared it with the upcoming 2010 reboot, TRON Legacy. There are no surprises here, but the computer graphics in the new film are just a wee bit better.

Loafing Under Gaslight: Incredible Steampunk Lamps

Loafing Under Gaslight: Incredible Steampunk Lamps
Few things scream class like attractive handmade decor. These steampunk-inspired lights would class up any room. These all look so good that I can’t even decide which one I like best–and if these aren’t enough, there are more at designer Frank Buchwald’s site.

Halo Mimobot Flash Drives Defends Your Data From the Covenant
The Master Chief MIMOBOT isn’t a towering 7-footer with a 700 lb. armor like his video game counterpart, but he can store data. Like, up to 8 GB. And he has a huge head. As you can see, Blue and Red Spartans have also enlisted to protect your spreadsheets and documents.
