The Desk Casemod: a Desktoptobottom Computer

The Desk Casemod: a Desktoptobottom Computer
While integrating a computer into a desk isn’t exactly an original idea, Will Urbina’s “The Desk” casemod is (literally) flashy and makes no effort whatsoever to hide the fact that the desk itself is the computer.

Teuxdeux Web-Based to-Do App: What Deux Yeux have Teux Deux Teuxday?

Teuxdeux Web-Based to-Do App: What Deux Yeux have Teux Deux Teuxday?
Tina Roth Eisenberg – more popularly known around the Internet as Swiss Miss – and her friends recently launched a web-based to-do app called TeuxDeux. Upon creating an account (it’s free for the time being, but Eisenberg admits that they may have to charge a “minimal fee” in the future to cover for upkeep) you’re immediately presented with the days of the week, each with a text box and a row of blanks.

Darth Vader Mint Gum: Chews the Dark Side

Darth Vader Mint Gum: Chews the Dark Side
The title pretty much says it all here. Somewhere in Japan you can now get Darth Vader chewing gum. Why? I say why the heck not?

Sony Wx1 Digi-Cam Snaps Panoramic Photos for a Good Cause

Sony Wx1 Digi-Cam Snaps Panoramic Photos for a Good Cause
So the guys over at Sony were kind enough to provide us with one of their nifty DSC-WX1 digital cameras so we could go out and shoot some cool panoramic pics – with the goal of putting some of these high-tech wonders in the hands of school kids.

Misoccer iPod Speaker Dock is a Real (Foot)Ball

Misoccer iPod Speaker Dock is a Real (Foot)Ball
This has got to be the most ridiculous looking iPod dock I’ve seen in a while. In preparation for the 2010 World Cup, the guys over at Speakal have announced their new miSoccer. The miSoccer ($119 USD) works just like any other iPod speaker dock, except it looks like a soccer ball (or for the majority of the globe – a football).

Imbibe Me Up: Star Trek Wine Glasses

Imbibe Me Up: Star Trek Wine Glasses
It’s beginning to look a lot like a Star Trek holiday season. First we’re faced with killer (and economical) stockings, and now a pair of etched wine glasses, for the grape-loving fan in your life. Perfect for a little Springwine, am I right?

More New Old Mega Man on the Way

More New Old Mega Man on the Way
After the fabulous reception for Mega Man 9, it seemed inevitable that there would in turn be a Mega Man 10, if for no other reason than the fact that it’s Mega Man and Capcom has a certain penchant for tacking ever-higher numbers onto the titles of their games.

Castoven Microwave Oven: Watch Youtube While You Wait

Castoven Microwave Oven: Watch Youtube While You Wait
Keita Watanabe, Ph.D., and Shota Matsuda of Japan’s Keio University have won a couple of awards for their crazy, yet somehow logical concept for a microwave. Called the Castoven, it eschews the transparent glass panel typically seen on microwave ovens in place of a 10.4-inch LCD display.

Level Down: Minimalist Video Game Character Art

Level Down: Minimalist Video Game Character Art
Compared to 15 pixel videos of games, these minimalist prints of video game characters are much more recognizable. Of course it helps that the characters shown are very popular. Or did they become so popular partly because they have such recognizable features?

Gakken Mini Electric Guitar Kit Rocks

Gakken Mini Electric Guitar Kit Rocks
The guys at Japan’s Gakken Otona no Kagaku Magazine are at it again, this time, they’ve created a really cool kit that lets you build your own mini electric guitar. Now, I’m not talking about the type the comes with Rock Band or Guitar Hero either.

Penguin United Crossfire: Best Wii Gun Controller Yet?

Penguin United Crossfire: Best Wii Gun Controller Yet?
Most of the Wii gun controllers out there require that you slap your Wii-mote into some sort of add-on accessory, and usually feature questionable ergonomics. The new Penguin United CrossFire does away with such concerns by integrating their own Wii-mote into the gun itself – which as far as I know is a first.

The Old and the New: Nintendo Controller iPhone Dock

The Old and the New: Nintendo Controller iPhone Dock
The fact that you own an iPhone doesn’t mean everything else has to be the cutting edge of new technology, right? Even the smooth, sleek lines of Apple’s phone can’t replace the classics, so why not let them live in beautiful harmony with this NES controller iPhone dock?

Ffxiii’S Main Dame Gets Her Own Scent

Ffxiii’S Main Dame Gets Her Own Scent
It’s not every day you can start drawing comparisons between the Paris Hilton and the star of Final Fantasy XIII, and really, I’m not sure you’d want to. Beyond the light hair and the sometimes-questionable haircuts, I’m betting Paris and Lightning don’t have much in common.

The Xphone Will Destroy the iPhone… if It was a Real Product

The Xphone Will Destroy the iPhone… if It was a Real Product
We’ve yet to see a gadget really compete against the iPhone, to the extent that subscribers in the U.S. are willing to endure the sometimes horrible service of AT&T so that they can keep using Apple’s revolutionary product.

Aq Amigo Laptop Speaker: the Macbook Air of Speakers

Aq Amigo Laptop Speaker: the Macbook Air of Speakers
The AQ Amigo is made of plastic, but it’s so thin it seems more fragile than a pair of ceramic speakers. At 0.98 inches thick, it’s just a bit fatter than a typical laptop screen. The speaker is equipped with two 1.2-watt 19 mm “Exciter” drivers.

Levitron Revolution World Stage, Magnet Toys Are Awesome!!

Levitron Revolution World Stage, Magnet Toys Are Awesome!!
Okay, honestly this is the best item for sale on ThinkGeek to date. The Levitron Revolution World Stage comes with a globe that hovers with the power of MAGNETS! Aren’t magnets cool? If you get tired of the floating globe you can open up the globe, remove the magnet disc and use that to make other things float in the air (maximum capacity 3 oz)!
