Mic & Mac Prove That Love Knows No Operating System

Mic & Mac Prove That Love Knows No Operating System
Staunch loyalists of either Apple or Windows will not approve of the romance between Mic & Mac, two machines who fall in love with each other despite their differences. The Pixar-like video, created by a certain gverstraeten, is quite old but it’s still dawwwwwww-inducing.

Everything is Portable With a Super Mario Box

Everything is Portable With a Super Mario Box
If you own multiple gaming consoles, you already know that keeping everything organized can be a pain, particularly if you sometimes pack up and take it all to a friend’s house. Nightmare? For most of us, sure.

Bodum Bistro Flatbed Toaster: the iPod Nano of Toasters

Bodum Bistro Flatbed Toaster: the iPod Nano of Toasters
Bodum’s Bistro flatbed toaster is a versatile device. Thanks to its design, the 700 w toaster can heat, toast or defrost almost any size or shape of bread. The design has its drawbacks of course, like being able to toast only one side at a time, so that may be a deal breaker for some folks.

An Adventure in Oddities: the Marionette

An Adventure in Oddities: the Marionette
There’s no much that’s better than free, but free games can often be a little simple. Not that simple is in any way bad, but somehow, it feels like more of a steal when your free game comes as beautifully packaged as The Marionette.

Catena Wall Clock Tells Time With Bike Chain

Catena Wall Clock Tells Time With Bike Chain
Here’s an unusual concept for a wall clock. Instead of telling the time with hands or a digital display, the Catena clock tells time along the perimeter of a bicycle chain. Designed by Andreas Dober for Germany’s Anthologie Quartett, the Catena (Latin for “chain”) has a certain retro-steampunk look about it.

Left 4 Dead Infects Xbox 360 [Casemod]

Left 4 Dead Infects Xbox 360 [Casemod]
This wouldn’t be the first L4D + Xbox 360 combo we’ve featured here on technabob, but I think it’s my new favorite. Modder Tjpitbull decked out his 360 with a complete Left 4 Dead inspired look, covering the entire case with a distressed military green paintjob on both the console and controller.

Woman Flaunts Her Flute Skills on Rock Band

Woman Flaunts Her Flute Skills on Rock Band
Anyone who’s played Rock Band knows that the singing part of the game is quite forgiving, in the sense that you don’t have to know the right words to the song. In fact you can just moan and groan throughout a song, as long as you moan and groan on key.

Stickers Make for a Simple Mooninites Mod

Stickers Make for a Simple Mooninites Mod
If you’re looking for a simple (and removable) way to customize a gaming system, vinyl stickers and clings can be a good place to start. The (likely) lack of permanent damage offers a safety net to the clumsy and un-artistic, and it doesn’t take much effort to produce something that looks slick and personalized, like this Nintendo DSi redone as a monument to the Mooninites of Aqua Teen Hunger Force, who do whatever they want, whenever they want, all the time.

Bacon Lampshade: Sizzling Hot

Bacon Lampshade: Sizzling Hot
Okay folks bacon is awesome and all, but this is getting out of hand: Flickr user krismkelley made a bacon lampshade. A lampshade made of bacon. What have you been smoking krismkelley? Bacon? Pretty soon people will be building whole houses out of bacon.

LED Menorahs: is It Too Early for a Hanukkah Post?

LED Menorahs: is It Too Early for a Hanukkah Post?
I know, we’re more than a month away from Hanukkah, but when I saw these awesomely geeky LED Menorah kits today, I just had to give them a mention. Heck, if it were the middle of April, I’d probably still write about them.

Joker Racer: Drive R/C Cars With Your Web Browser or iPhone

Joker Racer: Drive R/C Cars With Your Web Browser or iPhone
Joker Racer is a new service which lets you race remote-control cars from across the internet. The system uses a custom wireless computer that receives digital information via a Wi-Fi connection and translates your maneuvers into servo control signals for R/C cars.

Bioshock 2 Eve Hypodermic Syringe: Sterilize Before Using

Bioshock 2 Eve Hypodermic Syringe: Sterilize Before Using
While most everyone I know has been heading off to get a flu shot, I’d personally rather get injected with a dose of Bioshock’s EVE serum instead of a supposedly dead H1N1 virus grown in chicken eggs.

SNES + Genesis + NES + Portable = Snegenes P

SNES + Genesis + NES + Portable = Snegenes P
Want to play all your favorite classic retro console games? Sure you could cheat and buy yourself a Dingoo, but what fun would that be? This custom-built portable uses hardware from a couple of other devices to create a system that plays games from the Nintendo NES, SNES and Sega Genesis.

Electronic Rock Guitar Shirt: Air Guitar on Steroids

Electronic Rock Guitar Shirt: Air Guitar on Steroids
The thinking geeks at ThinkGeek recently unleashed one of their most awesome creations: WEARABLE ROCK. Their Electronic Rock Guitar Shirt features a semi-guitar with 14 major chords – which were recorded from a real electric guitar – assigned to different areas on the neck, so you can play songs for real without really knowing how to play the guitar.

It’S Dangerous to Smoke Alone! Take This Cigarette Case [Zelda]

It’S Dangerous to Smoke Alone! Take This Cigarette Case [Zelda]
The old man in the beginning of The Legend of Zelda has got to be one of the most helpful dudes in video game history. He doesn’t say anything cryptic. He doesn’t require you to fetch anything.

Flashlight Pendant Lamps Prove That Porcelain Can Make Anything Look Sophisticated

Flashlight Pendant Lamps Prove That Porcelain Can Make Anything Look Sophisticated
Even if you were asked to name a hundred beautiful objects, would you include flashlights in your list? Of course not. But what if the flashlights were made of porcelain?
