I think we can all agree that Hello Kitty is pretty cute. Hello Kitty floating on a fluffy confection of fake cream and glittery jewels… well, that’s something else altogether. Stunning, certainly. And the gleam might just put your eye out.
We already showed you how to make zombie cupcakes (actually I just gave you a link to the actual instructions, but you know what I mean). Now here’s the perfect partner to that brainy pastry – the Bloody Brain Shooter.
The brain-like goo in this case is just Bailey’s Irish cream.
I swear some of the best stuff we’ve posted here at technabob has originated from someone’s Coroflot portfolio. In this case, it’s Mexican industrial designer Gabriel Cañas’ Tetris Chair, which is so amazingly gaudy that only Willy Wonka could ever hope to love it.
And geeks like me.
The guys selling these Pac-Man glass pipes have them listed as a “flo new art glass borosilicate pyrex glass PAC-MAN scene landscape video game 420 high score spoon pipe heady 420”, which certainly could be used for legitimate purposes – like for smoking small pieces of meat.
This odd little gadget from Japan is perfect for placing subliminal messages in the background of epic rock albums. It’s also good for recreating disturbing and surreal scenes from Twin Peaks and The Shining.
Even though the product description over on Strapya World says “The things you can do with this machine have no limits!,”
Now I’ve not been shy in saying that the Gravity Gun in Half Life 2 is my all-time favorite video game weapon. So when I heard about Namco Bandai’s new Xbox 360/PS3 third-person gravity manipulation shooter Inversion, my curiosity was definitely piqued.
In Inversion, your primary weapon is the Grappler – which is like a Gravity Gun on steroids.
MOCPages member/MGS fan/Brick master Rags naRock made cuter versions of GEKKOs, the nimble, creepy, bovine-like killing machines in Metal Gear Solid 4, and they just make me wish for a LEGO Metal Gear game.
Check out the rest of the pictures, they’re a real treat.
Immortalize your mixtapes with the Ion Tape Express, an easy to use device that converts your favorite songs to mp3 files. Just pop in a tape, connect it to your computer via USB, and let the bundled EZ Tape Converter Software work its magic.
As you may have guessed from its looks, the Tape Express is also a portable cassette tape player.
I’m not sure about this horrible controller trend, but with the release of Brando’s dragon gamepad, I think we can officially say that it has taken hold. It’s either that, or a lot of gamer masochists are finding new and creative ways to hide their proclivities.
I have to admit, Brando’s Fire Dragon gamepad would look pretty sweet… if it wasn’t, y’know, a game controller.
HP’s new DreamScreen devices straddle the fine line between computer and digital picture frame. Like other digi-frames, you can view pictures without a computer. But with the DreamScreen, you can also wirelessly stream music, videos and photos from your PC or the Internet.
Fred Fisher isn’t the only game-loving pumpkin carver out there that’s handy with an x-acto knife. Over on Deviant Art, user “ceemdee” posted a veritable cornucopia of video game art carved into pumpkins on her DA gallery.
I kid you not when I say “cornucopia” – there are video game pumpkins a-plenty, and they range from the contemporary to the classic, including Earthworm Jim, Shadow of the Colossus, Plants vs.
Zelda fans – Looking for something to go with your new Master Sword & Hylian Shield? Here’s a fun idea for some last minute Halloween decorations. Found on flickr, these Link and Triforce Jack-o-Lanterns were hand-carved by Fred Fisher (aka “b1uefish”) and his sister.
When it comes to games you can buy for just a dollar, Jon Keatley’s Run Away! should be at the top of the list. If there isn’t a list of wonderfully cheap games, then maybe someone should make one, just so this game could be on the top.
We can now add telepathy to the list of things that’s possible thanks to the Internet. Researchers at the University of Southampton in the UK have demonstrated that it is possible to transmit thoughts from one person’s brain to another person’s brain using nothing but pieces of tape, a couple of EEG amplifiers, some special software, LEDs, and the Internet.
This is one of those gadgets that’s funny for like 5 minutes – a bottle opener that looks like a motorcycle’s grip. It revs up when you open a bottle with it! Yay. Awesome.
Open a bottle of your favorite beer!
Looking for sleek, slightly geeky cufflinks? You know Etsy is the place to go if you’re looking to subtly show off your proclivities while dressed in your best. And with these cufflinks, you can announce your allegiance in the console wars without messing up your look.
I think what I like best about these cufflinks over some of those we’ve seen before is the fact that they’re thin and flat, and even a little dark.
