Link, the boy hero from a legion of Legend of Zelda games, is a popular subject for sculptures and fan art of all sorts, like this life-sized model. There’s just one catch with this example, though–it’s made entirely of paper.
I’m not sure why this R2-D2 has 8 video game consoles built into its innards, but I still like it. Maybe it’s just the very fact that I’ve never seen an R2 unit with more than 20 game controllers connected to its front, or maybe it’s just the sheer absurdity of the thing that has me captivated.
The Joytron Singibigi joystick is pretty unconventional looking for a home arcade controller. Instead of the typical black plastic box that you usually find these joysticks wrapped in, this one has a nice looking wood finish, reminiscent of the control panels on Japanese arcade machines.
Halloween-party-throwing foodie gamers – is that a demographic? If so, folks, it’s your day. If you have been dying to suck the sugar-force from a gelatinous Metroid, don’t worry. You’re covered.
Strawberries, green jello, apple… and no strong stomach required.
Designed by Joris Laarman, Artecnica’s Wire Pod manages to avoid the messy tangle of wires that we’ve come to expect from an extension cord while actually adding style to a space. This is one power cord that you won’t want to hide even if it’s not being used.
The only thing more unnecessary than a name badge that says “Hello, my name is…” is one that blinks. Sorta like the old HTML <BLINK> tag that most of us had the good sense to stop using about a decade ago.
Nah I’m sure most headset wearing folks aren’t jerks. It’s just that we’ve yet to meet them. Kidding. The solar powered Bluetooth headset is one of the new merch over at Brando, aka the technabob of gadget vendors.
What’s as bright as a plasma grenade stuck to your face? This Halo casemod, that’s what.
This spiffy custom model puts the official Halo Xbox 360 to shame. Not only does it glow (always a plus), but that’s one of the armor emblems from the game.
SGI’s new Octane III workstation takes the speed and performance that you’d usually find in a rack full of machines and puts it alongside your desk.
By leveraging modern miniaturization, the Octane III can handle up to 80 CPU cores, yes that’s EIGHT-ZERO CPU cores, along with up to 1TB, yes that’s ONE TERABYTE of RAM.
Space Foosball is a modern-day spin on the old foosball table does away with those mechanical men and ping pong balls and replaces them with pixels and a physics engine.
The cool thing about the virtual foosball players and ball is that they’re still controlled by the same sort of spinny axle controllers that traditional foosball machines use.
Any good zombie apocalypse is all about survival, so a game that’s actually named Zombie Apocalypse isn’t likely to be about picking daisies. This week’s downloadable co-op experiences promises gore, guns, and most importantly, zombies. Loads of ’em, and all ripe for the slaughter.
I sure as hell won’t find any use for this but maybe you would: The Printstik PS910 ME from PLANon is an ultra-compact (1″ x 10.75″ x 1.5″) rechargeable printer that can sync with your computer or smartphone via USB or Bluetooth, allowing you to print anything – emails, web pages, documents, boarding passes – on the go.
Ah, the office life. Waking up early, wearing”business casual”, pretending to work for 8 hours, getting promoted to a different position but with the same duties and salary (from Domestic Purchasing Specialist to Local Marketing Officer.
I know–at first glance, this wedding cake topper doesn’t look all that geeky. It’s Katamari Damacy; that’s actually getting pretty common for wedding cakes of all types. But wait! There’s more.
The Katamari theme is only the beginning.
