Mysterious Space Invaders Arcade Machine Surfaces

Mysterious Space Invaders Arcade Machine Surfaces
I was surfing around looking for something entirely different, when I spotted this odd Space Invaders arcade game over on 4Gamer.net. I have no idea what the gameplay is like, but I imagine it has something to do with pressing those big pink and blye buttons at the bottom of the console.

Stellarwindow Turns Tablet Pcs Into a Virtual Planetarium

Stellarwindow Turns Tablet Pcs Into a Virtual Planetarium
This intriguing hardware/software combo from Japan’s Fairy Devices lets you turn a tablet PC into a veritable “window to the stars”. As you hold your PC up and move it around, the highly-sensitive motion-sensor USB module sends position data to the StellarWindow’s planetarium software, adjusting the viewport to match the angle of your screen.

The Fibonacci Rings

The Fibonacci Rings
Math geeks like pretty stuff, too, regardless of any nasty rumors you may have heard from the proverbial peanut gallery. But pretty things can be smart, you know, like this ring inspired by the Fibonacci numbers.

It’S a Bird, It’S a Plane… It’S an Xbox 360

It’S a Bird, It’S a Plane… It’S an Xbox 360
For some, Superman may be dead (or Brandon Routh), but the classic movie man of steel lives on, in hearts, in minds, and on this Xbox 360. While I’m often not a fan of airbrushed cases (I much prefer more elaborate mods, myself), I have to say that the cracks and details in this one look great.

Moonwalk Lamp: Because Astronauts have Bright Minds

Moonwalk Lamp: Because Astronauts have Bright Minds
I can only think of a handful of other jobs that are as awesome as being an astronaut. Being a technabob blogger is one of them. So is being an ice cream taste tester. What else…no, that’s it.

Mythbusters’ Adam and Jamie Get Busted!

Mythbusters’ Adam and Jamie Get Busted!
Even though it seems that the scientific sleuths of Mythbusters have run out of actual myths to test, we can’t deny that their show has brought us a ton of geeky fun throughout the years. From building a platoon of (literal) foot soldier robots to try and wreck a bridge, to trying to put out fire with fire, Adam and Jamie have gone to great lengths to pursue the truth in the name of science and fun.

Sound Pot Porcelain Speakers: Handle With Care

Sound Pot Porcelain Speakers: Handle With Care
I always thought that making speakers out of something as fragile as porcelain would be a bad idea. But these bulbous clay speakers look intriguing enough that I might be willing to risk breaking ’em. Korean design firm Studio Lim created these unique speakers called Sound Pots.

Joojoo (Formerly Crunchpad) Specs, Price, Pre-Order Date

Joojoo (Formerly Crunchpad) Specs, Price, Pre-Order Date
After Michael Arrington’s TechCrunch and Fusion Garage parted ways on their much-anticipated CrunchPad collaboration, I figured the tablet would be dead. But the rumors of the demise of the tablet formerly known as CrunchPad appear to be greatly exaggerated.

LEGO Mouse: the Clicky Kind

LEGO Mouse: the Clicky Kind
The Lego brick is the simplest form of a creative medium, the USB mouse is a creative tool for some. When you put these two together you get the USB Lego Mouse! The perfect gadget for those young at heart and are not afraid to show it off at their cubicle farm.

The World’S Least Cuddly Ewok [Star Wars]

The World’S Least Cuddly Ewok [Star Wars]
The Ewoks (you remember those guys; think Return of the Jedi, spears, grunting, adorable ears) are supposed to be pretty cuddly. They’re like little angry teddy bears… or they were, until they were re-imagined as something a little more square.

A new species of dinosaur has been discovered at Craftster, and it is adawwwwwrable. I’ll give it the scientific name Facelessthicipus woolysaurus, but you can call it Dinohorsie. The 2 ft. long Dinohorsie was made by the crazy imaginative craftster sparrowarms : “My daughter has always called Dinosaurs, Dinohorsies which got me thinking: what would a Dinohorsie look like?”

Psp Eats iPhone: iPhone Lives to Tell the Story
I’m not sure what it is about iPhone cases designed to look like other gadgets, but I always find them amusing. The mobile device subject to iPhonification this time – the Sony PSP. Created by textile artist RabbitRampage, this handmade felt case ($30 USD) looks just like a PSP – if it were made out of felt and stitches.
