Life-Sized Link is Made of Paper
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. From this distance? I, at least, can’t tell at all…

R2-D2 8 Console Hack Proves Casemods Don’t have to Make Sense to be Cool

R2-D2 8 Console Hack Proves Casemods Don’t have to Make Sense to be Cool
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…

Blinking E-Ink Name Badges on the Way. Why? Why Not?

Blinking E-Ink Name Badges on the Way. Why? Why Not?
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. Thanks to the fine folks at Korea’s Neolux, we’ll…

Solar Powered Bluetooth Headset: for Eco-Friendly Douchebags

Solar Powered Bluetooth Headset: for Eco-Friendly Douchebags
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. It’s not a Brando-ish gadget in the sense that we can actually…

Halo Casemod for Elites Only [Xbox 360]

Halo Casemod for Elites Only [Xbox 360]
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. I can’t tell from…
