Gaon Street Light/Wastebasket Turns Trash Into Flash

Gaon Street Light/Wastebasket Turns Trash Into Flash
Designed by Haneum Lee, the Gaon street light/wastebasket concept composts biodegradable waste and uses the methane by-product to power its light, saving energy and eliminating waste while lighting the streets. It’s a bright idea – or is it? I like how one simple gadget can help solve a couple of…

Cool Rider: Like a Segway, but Not Really
Lately, we’ve been running into lots of unusual personal transportation vehicles. The Cool Rider is just the latest attempt to dethrone the venerable Segway from the top of the single-person transporter heap. The Cool Rider isn’t quite as schmancy as a Segway, but it still looks like a fun way…

Gundam Gun Ballpoint Pens Might Blast a Hole in Your Paper

Gundam Gun Ballpoint Pens Might Blast a Hole in Your Paper
Fans of the classic Japanese Anime series Gundam will recognize these familiar items. Except instead of firing deadly projectiles, these miniature weapons fire ink onto paper.

Smash Bros. Characters Given D&D-Style Alignments: Fanboys & Fangirls Debate!

Smash Bros. Characters Given D&D-Style Alignments: Fanboys & Fangirls Debate!
Nintendo’s wildly popular Smash Bros. franchise is a dimension-shattering, world-colliding crossover in itself, but deviantART member Nakabeast added another delicious layer of nerdity by assigning Dungeons & Dragons alignments to some of the series’ most popular characters, like series newcomer Solid Snake: If you think about it, Solid Snake can’t…

Hey, Look at That: Drum Hero

Hey, Look at That: Drum Hero
Activision has a real obsession with heroes… at least, the musical kind. They’ve just filed a trademark for Drum Hero. But can’t we pound on plastic drums already? In several different ways? I guess it really needs its own brand. Of course, a new trademark doesn’t mean the game is…

10 Key Calculator is Also a Numpad-Ator

10 Key Calculator is Also a Numpad-Ator
USB numpads are nothing new, but IDEA Japan’s 10 Key also functions as a calculator, so it’s… lemme calculate that… yep, twice as useful. Those who want their peripherals to blend in with the rest of their computer will be glad to know that the 10 Key also comes in…

Grass Covered Mouse is Always Greener

Grass Covered Mouse is Always Greener
We’ve seen some strange computer mice over the years, and here’s a new one to add to the pile of unusual mousing devices. This one is covered with grass. Created by Japanese artist Hanaoka, the Siva mouse is part of a series of grass-covered objects he’s produced for the world…

Motherboard Mona Lisa

Motherboard Mona Lisa
While Leonardo Da Vinci was one of the great art masters, the guy who created this version of Mona Lisa entirely out of old motherboards is a modern master in my book.…

Honey, I Got You a Bouquet of Light-Emitting Diodes

Honey, I Got You a Bouquet of Light-Emitting Diodes
If there’s one thing us geeks know how to do is turn the everyday into something fantastically dorky. Our latest invention? LED flowers, trees and shrubs. This high-tech plantlife does away with such petty annoyances as dirt, water and sunlight, replacing them with an ongoing thirst for electricity. Each kit…

Utah School Selling Its Old Spaceship Simulator. Wait, Schools have Spaceship Simulators Now?

Utah School Selling Its Old Spaceship Simulator. Wait, Schools have Spaceship Simulators Now?
You lucky Alpine School District students and your Space Education Center with its spaceship simulators. I hate you. All I had when I was a kid were teachers who liked to gossip and humiliate students who didn’t go to church. I hope you never find a buyer for your fancy…

To Boldly Go Where No Lighting has Gone Before

To Boldly Go Where No Lighting has Gone Before
It seems like just the other day that we were talking about some seriously cool lighting, and already we’ve got a reason to dig the rare subject up again: the Star Ship chandelier. Yes, Star Ship. The name is important, see. Gee, that design looks somehow familiar… and undeniably slick…

Aero Spider Laser Cars Drive on Walls, Follow Laser Beams, Confuse Cats

Aero Spider Laser Cars Drive on Walls, Follow Laser Beams, Confuse Cats
Takara Tomy’s latest remote-control car is definitely unique. Not only does the Aero Spider Laser drive on walls or ceilings, it goes where you tell it to using a light gun. The gun-shaped controller projects a bright red light beam (not sure it’s really a laser beam) where you want…

From Classic Console to Arcade Stick

From Classic Console to Arcade Stick
Here’s a creative way to preserve that old NES when it finally, finally breaks down: turn it into an arcade stick. A bulky, thick, incredible arcade stick. Beyond the forest of wiring, this actually doesn’t look as difficult as some of the crazier custom jobs we’ve seen, and odds are…
