Yes, a Brutal Legend Cake (Already)

Yes, a Brutal Legend Cake (Already)
Okay, okay, I know Brütal Legend is apparently short and all, but it only came out a week ago! One week–and already, someone’s made a damn cake for it. Listen, guys. The bakers are making the rest of us look incredibly lazy.

Speed USB Smart Pad Supports Multitouch Gestures: Let Your Fingers Do the Zoomin’ and Navigatin’
Yeah, yeah, Apple is probably going to announce some sort of wondrous new multitouch input peripherals when it makes its rumored product announcements this week, but does that mean that Windows users can’t have at least a little multitouch lovin’ in the mean time?

Alien Abduction Lamp: the Aliens have Finally Landed!

Alien Abduction Lamp: the Aliens have Finally Landed!
After what seems like an eternity to me, the wonderful, whimsical Alien Abduction Lamp has finally landed here on planet Earth! Lasse Klein’s whimsical lamp design first showed its face on Technabob all the way back in June 2007, and it’s taken over 2 years for a final production version of the lamp to find its way to our humble M-Class planet.

Toys for Big Boys: iPhone Remote Controls Honda Civic, Blackberry Remote Controls F1 Car

Toys for Big Boys: iPhone Remote Controls Honda Civic, Blackberry Remote Controls F1 Car
Man, these are smartphones indeed. The wise – and probably bored – folks at the University of Berlin made a one-of-a-kind iPhone app which they called iDriver, which allows them to control a Honda Civic via Wi-Fi.

Prepare for the Zombie Apocalypse With First Aid Pack Tee

Prepare for the Zombie Apocalypse With First Aid Pack Tee
You know what goes well with guns and gore? First aid kits. And thanks to the ThinkGeek folks, you can keep yours close. So close, in fact, that it’s two dimensional. I’m pretty sure a picture of a first aid kit isn’t going to help you much, in the event of a real zombie apocalypse, though, so as cool as this t-shirt is, please, prepare accordingly.

Black Belt Watch: Designed by Black Belts, Only for Black Belts.

Black Belt Watch: Designed by Black Belts, Only for Black Belts.
No seriously: “Developed and manufactured in Switzerland, the Black Belt Watch is solely reserved for black belt holders, regardless of the martial art style. Each practitioner has to provide an official rank certificate”, otherwise the watch will kill its unworthy owner at the stroke of midnight using deadly watchjutsu.

The Amigurumi Mario Playset

The Amigurumi Mario Playset
Okay, I’m sure these weren’t actually crafted as a playset, but could you resist posing them in adorable ways? Clearly the artist couldn’t; there’s even a backdrop to simulate a moment from the game! And look at that little goomba, all turned over.

Killer Geek Cupcakes the Easy Way

Killer Geek Cupcakes the Easy Way
Note that the title doesn’t indicate that this is the easiest way to obtain awesome custom cupcakes; that, of course, means dragging yourself down to the nearest shop and placing an order. But the second-easiest way to achieve, say, Pac-Man perfection, is to make your own cupcakes of any sort, and just slap these purchasable covers on ’em.

Snackbot Snack-Delivering Robot: I Want One Now.

Snackbot Snack-Delivering Robot: I Want One Now.
I’ve always wanted a robotic butler. You know, like the personal service ‘bots in Woody Allen’s Sleeper. Except without the sexual harassment part. Turns out that a team of industrious scientists at Carnegie Mellon University’s Robotics Institute have already built one.

Circuit Board Cufflinks for Formal Geeks

Circuit Board Cufflinks for Formal Geeks
Next time you need to go to a semiconductor semi-formal (see what I did there?), you might want to grab a pair of these clever geeky cufflinks made from old circuit boards. But unlike those shiny new 2010 Olympic medals, you can actually tell that these were upcycled from old circuitry.

Tetris’D Turns Tetris Into a Platformer

Tetris’D Turns Tetris Into a Platformer
When most of us think of Tetris, we think of puzzle games. But this new variant of the classic brick-stacking puzzler isn’t about that. You see, Tetris’D is a platform game. Huh, wha?

Vicon Revue Camera Automatically Takes Pictures of User’S Day: a Photographic Twitter

Vicon Revue Camera Automatically Takes Pictures of User’S Day: a Photographic Twitter
Twitter lets people share even the littlest, most unremarkable things in their lives. This winter Vicon will release the Vicon Revue, a camera that promises to make “lifelogging” – making a photographic archive of your day – popular.

Zombie Cuuuuuuuuupcaaaaaaaaaaaakes

Zombie Cuuuuuuuuupcaaaaaaaaaaaakes
Hey man, want some fresh news? Look at our other posts then, ’cause this one’s quite old. Still awesome though: Flickr user xsomnis made these cupcakes a couple of years ago, and she was kind enough to post instructions on how to make them as well.

‘a Boy and His Blob’ Comes to Life, My Worst Nightmare Realized

‘a Boy and His Blob’ Comes to Life, My Worst Nightmare Realized
I have an irrational fear and hatred of “blobs” and blob-like creatures. Growing up, I used to watch a Saturday morning cartoon called The Herculoids, in which there were two gelatinous mounds named “Gleep” and “Gloop.”

Sega Genmobile: the Genesis Gets Portable (Again)

Sega Genmobile: the Genesis Gets Portable (Again)
Way back in the wayback machine, Sega released a bulky handheld called the Nomad. This portable gaming console could play Genesis cartridges on the go. But the problem with the Nomad was its high price (almost $200 bucks), abysmal battery life, and bulky design.

2010 Olympic Medals to be Made From Old Circuit Boards

2010 Olympic Medals to be Made From Old Circuit Boards
It’s already pretty awesome to get a gold medal. Really – it means that for at least one day, you were the best in the world at something, and there’s no arguing with that. But Olympic medals have become increasingly more beautiful, too, and the medals for the 2010 Vancouver winter games are no exception… and it doesn’t hurt that they’re made from old circuit boards!
