E-Time Controller Plays Sega Genesis/Mega Drive Game Roms

E-Time Controller Plays Sega Genesis/Mega Drive Game Roms
There are plenty of cheap plug-and-play SEGA retro gaming systems out there, but this is the first one I’ve seen that lets you load up your own ROMs and play them on your TV. The E-Time Game Play Controller ($22 USD) may look like a standalone game controller, but it’s actually a self-contained SEGA Mega Drive/Genesis console.

Giant Robot Taekwon V Statue Will be Six Times as Large as Giant Gundam Statue
I haven’t heard of Robot Taekwon V up until now, but I think he’s about to become a lot more famous because of South Korea’s soon-to-be-built robot-themed amusement park, Robot Land. The park will have a statue of the 70s cartoon hero (who was known as Voltar the Invincible in the US).

Tetris + Pong = Tetripong

Tetris + Pong = Tetripong
Hey, you got your Pong in my Tetris! Say, you got you Tetris in my Pong! Wait a second? Are these two great tastes that taste great together? That’s what coder Jayenkai thought when he built Tetripong, a major mashup between the two retro classic games.

The Real Mac Tablet is a Coffee Table [Casemod]
With all of the buzz on the ‘nets about Apple’s upcoming tablet Mac, I think I’ve got the scoop on the original Mac Tablet. Yvan of Switzerland’s Cosm!k’ Art Deco Team built his Tablet Mac into a coffee table.

Takaratomy Micropets-I Robots Will Kill You With Cuteness
Cuter than a bowl of kittens covered in marshmallows and sprinkles, these little electronic playthings are enough to make me want to puke a rainbow. Each of TakaraTomy’s Micropets-i miniature desktop robo-playthings has a tiny little mind of its own.

Bioshock 2 Multiplayer: Rapture at Its Most Chaotic
Does every game necessarily need multiplayer? Nah, certainly not, but these days, it’s pretty standard, though the excellent BioShock was allowed to stand on its own as an (amazing) single player experience. For the sequel, however, players get a chance to experience the fall of Rapture firsthand in the new multiplayer mode.

Oops: Upgrading Your Mac’S Os to Snow Leopard Downgrades Your Flash Player

Oops: Upgrading Your Mac’S Os to Snow Leopard Downgrades Your Flash Player
If you’ve upgraded to Apple’s much-hyped and well-received Snow Leopard, I recommend that you update your system’s Adobe Flash player – even if you already had the latest version prior to the installation. That’s because in the process of installing Snow Leopard, your current Flash player will be replaced by version 10.0.23.1.

If Pandas Ran the U.S. Banking System We Wouldn’T be in the Mess We’Re in Today

If Pandas Ran the U.S. Banking System We Wouldn’T be in the Mess We’Re in Today
New from Japan – home of things too cute and strange to ever make it to American soil, comes TakaraTomy’s latest dose of sugary electronic goodness, the Panda Bank.

Toshiba Camileo S20: HD 1080p Camcorder Slims Down
I’m really digging the svelte looks of the newly announced Toshiba Camileo S20 camcorder. Not only does the compact video camera feature a super-slim 17mm thick body, it can capture high-definition video in glorious 1080p (1920 x 1280) resolution.

Darth Vader and Stormtrooper Incense Holders: Smell the Dark Side of the Force
I’m not sure who the target demo is for these Star Wars Imperial incense holders. Maybe they’re for geekster-hippies? Dunno. What I do know is that they’re weird, and therefore I had to write about them.
