Hello Kitty TV Even Cuter Than the Last Hello Kitty TV

Hello Kitty TV Even Cuter Than the Last Hello Kitty TV
Hello Kitty is cute. There’s no denying it, as millions of teenagers all over the world will affirm. There is no shortage of TVs geared for children, but Hello Kitty TVs were somewhat scarce. That is, until now.

Star Trek Motion Picture Phaser Replica: Set Credit Cards to Buy

Star Trek Motion Picture Phaser Replica: Set Credit Cards to Buy
Entertainment Earth is selling a Star Trek: The Motion Picture phaser replica, an affordable yet fun gift for Trekkie fans. Or kids, because they’re bound to like anything that lights up and goes pew pew. The replica is based on production blueprints of the movie prop and uses sound effects from the movie as well.

Daddy Issues: Nier Set for Spring

Daddy Issues: Nier Set for Spring
One world, one virus, one story, two different games. Nier, the product of Square Enix and Cavina, is getting a Western release… or at least half of it is. In Japan, Nier is two games: Gestalt and Replicant.

Nexus One, the Real Google Phone

Nexus One, the Real Google Phone
What do I mean by the “real Google phone”? Google has finally confirmed their own phone – the Nexus One. It’s not an AT&T/T-mobile branded Android 2.1 phone. Its an unlocked GSM phone that you can use on any GSM carrier and sold directly by retailers to you!

Morphius Robot Case Mod Freaks Me Out

Morphius Robot Case Mod Freaks Me Out
Not since the Bender case mod has there been such an awesome robot computer case mod. Master modeler and modder Maciel Barreto conceptualized this robot PC as a war-damaged ‘bot, with guts and wires hanging out of its metallic body.

Mountain Maniac: It’S Hammer Time!

Mountain Maniac: It’S Hammer Time!
Here’s a fun little game if you’re looking for a fun way to kill a little time today. Mountain Maniac is a wonderfully retro-styled Flash game that involves a little pixelated guy and a hammer (and no, it’s not Donkey Kong).

8-Bit Resident Evil Brings the Pixelated Gore

8-Bit Resident Evil Brings the Pixelated Gore
Who says 8-bit can’t be graphic? I’m guessing they’ve never seen anything quite like this Resident Evil tribute. Leon Kennedy can apparently tear up unfortunate farmers even when he’s been broken down to his most basic elements.

Shocking Tanks Let You Feel the Agony of Defeat

Shocking Tanks Let You Feel the Agony of Defeat
Do you want to teach your kids to become competitive? Then get a set of these radio-controlled shocking tanks, and in no time at all they will appreciate the value of winning. Instead of bullets or shells, the tanks fire infrared beams; whenever a tank is “hit” by the other tank, the person controlling it will receive a mild shock via the controller.

Loud Bass Music May have Killed Teenager

Loud Bass Music May have Killed Teenager
Tom Reid, a 19-year old university student, was at a club in Camden in north London. When Reid and his friend, Alisha Riseley, were pushed towards the speakers, Reid said to Riseley that his heart felt “funny”, and that he thought that the bass was causing his heart to beat very fast.

Intruder Alert! Pillows Go Berzerk!

Intruder Alert! Pillows Go Berzerk!
I always loved the game Berzerk back when it hit arcades all the way back in 1980. But for some reason, it’s one of those few classic games that doesn’t get much love these days (although technabob’s mascot was “borrowed” from the game).

Marioflage Hoodie 1-2: Super Mario Hoodie Levels Up

Marioflage Hoodie 1-2: Super Mario Hoodie Levels Up
Remember the oh-so-awesome Marioflage hoodie we featured a while back? Well apparently that was only level 1-1 of the series, and we’ve moved on to level 1-2.

Guitar Hero Drums Hacked to Play Real Music

Guitar Hero Drums Hacked to Play Real Music
While word on the street is that future versions of Rock Band might actually teach you how to play real instruments, modder Andy Lunn couldn’t wait that long and figured out a way to make real music with his Guitar Hero drum kit.

Hdi Limited Intros 100-Inch 3d Laser Tv, Requires Giant Wallet to Pay for It

Hdi Limited Intros 100-Inch 3d Laser Tv, Requires Giant Wallet to Pay for It
Damn, the day after I put that brand new 58-inch plasma TV in my living room, it’s already been made obsolete. Thanks to the guys over at HDi Limited, this mammoth 100-inch television not only is huge, it displays programs in true 3D.

The Ultra-Cinematic Mass Effect 2

The Ultra-Cinematic Mass Effect 2
Next month’s Mass Effect 2 is going to be huge. Not that the first game was any slouch in the size department, with its dozens of (lookalike) planets to explore and the kind of choice-filled plot BioWare is famous for.

Microvision and Intel Demo Pocket Projector Game Controller

Microvision and Intel Demo Pocket Projector Game Controller
I’ll start out by saying that I’m really not all that excited by all the pocket projectors that have started to flood the market. At least not yet. I mean really, how many of us really need a tiny dim projector when we’ve got giant 60-inch LCDs and Plasmas in our living rooms these days.

Auto(Mated)Tunes: Robot Jams With iPhone App

Auto(Mated)Tunes: Robot Jams With iPhone App
Shimon is one of the musical robots at Georgia Tech Center for Music Technology. While it’s not quite up to par with Daft Punk, Shimon’s ability to improvise and provide accompaniment in real-time is simply amazing.
