Bulbdial Clock: Sundial 2.0

Bulbdial Clock: Sundial 2.0
The evil & mad scientists at Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories built upon the idea of a certain David Friedman for a digital sundial. A normal sundial relies on the sun and only displays the hour. The Bulbdial clock is lit up by three layers or rings of LEDs that cause the gnomon (the object in the center of the clock that casts the shadow) to have three shadows.

Get It While You Can: Homebrew Smash Bros for the Ds

Get It While You Can: Homebrew Smash Bros for the Ds
Here’s betting this won’t be around for long, with Nintendo’s itchy cease-and-desist finger, but for now, the homebrew Super Smash Bros Rumble game for the DS exists, and it’s definitely worth checking out. All jokes about the mighty fist of Nintendo aside, SSB Rumble has been around for over a year, and while this latest version is labeled Demo 0.7, there’s a lot to explore in the download.

Recycling Heroes: Circuit Board Guitar Picks

Recycling Heroes: Circuit Board Guitar Picks
One of the best (and easiest) ways to leave your unique stamp on your guitar playing is by keeping a few really sweet picks around. Note, please, that this only applies to actual guitars–not the little plastic variety.

Ooey-Gooey Left 4 Dead 2 Gingerbread Zombies

Ooey-Gooey Left 4 Dead 2 Gingerbread Zombies
I can’t think of much that’s less appetizing than zombies, but maybe that’s just me. Maybe painting gingerbread men as comic versions of the baddies from Left 4 Dead 2 can impart a sense of empowerment, a reversal, a sort of “in Russia, you eat zombies” kind of deal.

Walldock iPhone & iPod Charger Joins the Fight Against Cable Clutter

Walldock iPhone & iPod Charger Joins the Fight Against Cable Clutter
DLO (Digital Lifestyle Outfitters, a Philips brand) has an iPhone & iPod dock that’s simple and practical, and adds style to the mundane act of charging. The WallDock is nothing but a tiny charger with the dock connector integrated onto the plug itself.

Cobra-Matic: Retro Zenith Turntable Becomes Modern Pc [Casemod]

Cobra-Matic: Retro Zenith Turntable Becomes Modern Pc [Casemod]
What you’re looking at here isn’t just a vintage record player. It’s actually a fully-functional gaming PC. This old Bakelite Zenith record player has even had its turntable replaced with a visible DVD-ROM drive – which looks absolutely perfect with those Verbatim simulated vinyl CD-Rs.

Itazura Kitty Coin Bank: Like Ceiling Cat, but in a Cardboard Box

Itazura Kitty Coin Bank: Like Ceiling Cat, but in a Cardboard Box
Whether they’re playing keyboards, eating spaghetti and cheeseburgers, or just plain acting surprised, the Internet has more cats than it has porn. Take for instance, this so-cute-you-wanna-puke gadget from Japan, which also happens to feature a surprise cat.

Zoozen Overcase Turns Your Xbox 360 in a Big Black Behemoth

Zoozen Overcase Turns Your Xbox 360 in a Big Black Behemoth

Friiboard: More Junk to Plug Into Your Wii

Friiboard: More Junk to Plug Into Your Wii
Looking for a little wobble for a lot of cash? I’m not talking about Tony Hawk Ride or anything, with its world (and physique) destroying peripheral? That seems to be the basic principal behind the Friiboard.

Ribbon Hero: a Game About Using Ms Office? Go Clippy, Go!

Ribbon Hero: a Game About Using Ms Office? Go Clippy, Go!
Actually no, it probably won’t be. And if Ribbon Hero does come out Microsoft will most likely distribute the game for free. istartedsomething‘s Long Zheng dug up a trademark application filed by Microsoft last November, which describes Ribbon Hero as a “computer software for training users to use business application software; and computer game software for use in computer user training.”

LG Reveals World’S First Production HD 3d LCD HDTV Monitor, Mercifully Refrains From Mentioning Price

LG Reveals World’S First Production HD 3d LCD HDTV Monitor, Mercifully Refrains From Mentioning Price
LG recently announced the “commercial launch” (what does that really mean?) of a 23-in LCD monitor that can display 3D images in full HD resolution. Dammit. I don’t even own a plain 2D HDTV and it’s already becoming obsolete.

Tonberry Cake Provides Inevitable, Edible Doom

Tonberry Cake Provides Inevitable, Edible Doom
I gotta say, there’s just something weirdly appropriate about a Tonberry cake, if only because those creepy little beasts come equipped with their own knives, the better for cutting your cake with. But I guess that would make them suicidal, or at least cutters, and that really doesn’t fit the Tonberry M.O.

Mintpass Cube Music Player for Meter Readers

Mintpass Cube Music Player for Meter Readers
The design minds over at mintpass are at it again. One of their latest conceptual gadget creations is the Mint Cube, an unusual retro take on the modern MP3 player. The 2-inch Mint Cube features a striking cubic design that’s punctuated by large analog meters on three sides of the cube.

Best Breakdancing Robot Video You’Ll See Today

Best Breakdancing Robot Video You’Ll See Today
This breakdancing robot video clip should really be titled Breakin' 2: Electronic Boogaloo. I can't decide if I'm more mesmerized bye the Japanese dance music or his headspins more. I only wish there were some poppin'-and-lockin'.

Psp Go to have Logitech External Umd Drive Accessory [Rumor]

Psp Go to have Logitech External Umd Drive Accessory [Rumor]
A source has told video game news site CVG that Logitech is currently working on “a UMD drive add-on” for the PSP Go. Commence laughing. A representative of Logitech’s UK office told CVG that they’re not aware of any such product, so “… it may be something the US office is working on.”
