More Arcade Game Cabs Get Miniaturized
Remember those wonderfully detailed mini game cabinets by Justin Whitlock? Well it looks like Big J.W. is expanding his arcade repertoire, adding some new machines to the mini arcade menagerie.

Playable NES Console Built Into an NES Cartridge [Casemod]

Playable NES Console Built Into an NES Cartridge [Casemod]
The first time I saw an NES gaming system built into an NES cartridge, I thought it was pretty sweet. Until I saw this one, which totally outdoes the original. Inspired by an earlier NESp (Ninendo Entertainment System portable) mod by darkeru, modder airz managed to put a completely playable game system, including a 2.8-inch LCD screen and original NES controller buttons into an old Super Mario Bros./Duck

Touchscreen Rubik’s Cube: Surprisingly More Backasswards Than the Plain Version

Touchscreen Rubik’s Cube: Surprisingly More Backasswards Than the Plain Version
Minor modifications aside, today’s Rubik’s Cube is very similar to the one that Ernő Rubik introduced to the world more than 30 years ago. But it was only a matter of time before the geeky puzzle cube got touched by technology.

Regretsy: the Best Guide for the Worst Stuff on Etsy

Regretsy: the Best Guide for the Worst Stuff on Etsy
I read about Regretsy on Gizmodo so yeah, half the world’s already read about it, but this is just too fun to pass up. See, we’ve featured a ton of awesome handmade items sold on Etsy, but rarely have we trawled it for mind-scarring monstrosities.

Dark Side, Light Side, Pumpkin Side [Star Wars]

Dark Side, Light Side, Pumpkin Side [Star Wars]
Pumpkins are certainly versatile gourds. Carve ’em, cook ’em, or just leave ’em sitting around–they’re a useful fruit. Pumpkin sculpture? Sure, that could make sense. But a pumpkin Star Wars sculpture? It’s a whole new world for pumpkins.

Super Mario Makes for Some Tasty Treats

Super Mario Makes for Some Tasty Treats
These handmade Super Mario Bros. candies from pastry artist Ana Fuji look too good to eat. Each delightful bon-bon features the likeness of a popular character from the Mushroom Kingdom, popping its head out of the top of an orb of chocolate and fondant.

Coil Lamp Uses Extension Cord for Power and Looks

Coil Lamp Uses Extension Cord for Power and Looks
It’s extremely rare – if not unheard of – for me to write two posts about the same person in a row. However, while I was researching designer Craigton Berman‘s totally awesome LEGO remote control concept, I came across this lamp over on his website and just had to mention it.

LEGO Control Concept: Why Did It Take So Long to Come Up With This?

LEGO Control Concept: Why Did It Take So Long to Come Up With This?
Of all of the universal remotes out there, this LEGO-brick-inspired concept design is my new favorite.

It’s a Nice Day for a Steampunk Wedding Cake

It’s a Nice Day for a Steampunk Wedding Cake
Even with all the wacky steampunk-inspired projects we’ve seen, I never expected steampunk food. Anything else, sure, like dishes, utensils, or glassware. Brass-fitted mugs? Makes perfect sense. But a steampunk cake? Now I’ve seen it all.

Scavenging for New Ways to Die in Left 4 Dead 2

Scavenging for New Ways to Die in Left 4 Dead 2
Left 4 Dead 2 is bringing all sorts of new zombie mayhem to the table. No more is the apocalyptic experience just about running from point A to point B (where the transportation is!); the sequel is bringing mission-style multiplayer in a new game type called Scavenge.

Coolit Pc Casemod Gives Me the Chills

Coolit Pc Casemod Gives Me the Chills
I’m pretty sure that this custom-built PC won’t ever overheat. That’s not just because it looks like a frosty block of snow and ice. It’s actually decked out with a completely over-the-top cooling system that keeps the interior of the computer at arctic temperatures.

Retro Ufo USB Flash Drive is Totally Out of This World

Retro Ufo USB Flash Drive is Totally Out of This World
The aliens have landed! They’ve invaded your laptop and are reading all of your data! Or are they saving all your data and flying it off to the mothership to protect it? These fun UFO USB flash drives come to us courtesy of crafter OrigamiMe (yeah, I know this isn’t origami).

Baby Yoda Costume is a Tricky Treat [Star Wars]

Baby Yoda Costume is a Tricky Treat [Star Wars]
Treat, or do not treat. There is no trick. At least, that’s what I’m imaging this child is being taught to say for Halloween. The regular ol’ “trick or treat” just doesn’t seem like it would quite measure up to this incredible Yoda costume.

Photosketch Internet Image Montage: This Needs to be Out Now

Photosketch Internet Image Montage: This Needs to be Out Now
Developed by a team of students from Tsinghua University and the National University of Singapore, Photosketch is a more practical version of Scribblenauts. Say you want to have a picture of a shark jumping out of the sea in an attempt to swallow a helicopter.

Talking Piano Speaks in English: Says It’S Mad as Hell About the Environment, and is Not Going to Take It Anymore

Talking Piano Speaks in English: Says It’S Mad as Hell About the Environment, and is Not Going to Take It Anymore
File this under “weirdest use for a piano. ever.”. This amazing bit of programming and mechanical engineering has created what is probably the first and only classical piano that can speak in English.

Flexpeaker: Paper-Thin Speakers Could Mean Your E-Newspaper Might One Day Read Itself to You

Flexpeaker: Paper-Thin Speakers Could Mean Your E-Newspaper Might One Day Read Itself to You
Wouldn’t it be cool if your could get some speakers that are even thinner than that ultra-slim flat TV you’ve got hanging on the wall? Well you might not have to wait long thanks to this new technology that produces speakers that are as thick as a sheet of paper.
