Nowadays we have wristwatches that are also cellphones. Or is it a cellphone that’s worn on the wrist? Anyway back in the day “watch + something” combos became all the rage, although personally I’ve never seen any other combo aside from calculator watches here in the Philippines.
From Sideshow Collectibles and Lucasfilm comes this limited-edition diorama of a classic scene from the Return of the Jedi. Okay I actually don’t know if it’s a classic scene or not because I’m not a big Star Wars fan.
I knew there was a reason I loved Japanese games. Here’s what might be the strangest game to come stateside since Noby Noby Boy and the Katamari Damacy series. Namco Bandai’s Muscle March is one of this week’s releases on the Nintendo WiiWare shop, and it’s truly an odd-ball.
I’ll leave it to the game’s creator to sum up Muscle March for you:
“The all mighty protein powder has been stolen so it’s up to Tony and his muscle-bound crew to catch the thieves.
I can’t believe I didn’t know about Turbo T. Double until today, when the bbps‘ Dan Zuccarelli posted the “music video” for one of Turbo T. Double’s songs, which is about Balrog’s take on Chun-Li. Yes, it’s a dude rapping as Balrog who’s talking about Chun-Li.
I have to say that I have always wanted to pilot a radio-controlled helicopter, though I’ve learned that doing so isn’t as easy as I initially had thought. Experienced R/C pilots have told me that helicopters are really hard to pilot.
With a compass, a tweezer, a toothpick, a pen, a glass breaker, 2 hidden compartments and ample space for money, the TMT Tactical Wallet is ten times more useful than me.
Made by North Carolina-based Toner Machining Technologies, this XXXXL cousin of Swiss army knives measures 4.0
Designer Ingrid Brandth was inspired by her grandfather, “based many of his ideas on excitement, humor and secrets,” to create this neat piece of furniture.
At first glance, it may look like the plainest of tables, but there is more to it than meets the eye…
This home theater system transforms from a display case to a full-on entertainment center. That’s cool, but don’t get your hopes up. It’s way too expensive. Plus, it’s way too ugly.
This home theater system is by Boxetti and it’s like having a Transformer in your house.
This amazing creation by robot enthusiast Hinamitetu appears to be getting ready for the Robot Olympics.
As it builds up speed in the video below, the little robot eventually builds up enough speed to spin all the way around the horizontal bar, and even attempts to release its grippy hands mid-spin (with questionable success).
Here’s the latest ridiculous keychain gadget to come to us from the same guys who brought us infinite bubble wrap and the thirst-unquenching beer can simulator. I give you… never-ending chocolate.
Created in celebration of the 84th anniversary of Meiji chocolates, Bandai’s Meiji chocolate bar clips onto your keychain or cell phone and lets you simulate the sensation and sounds (???)
Maxconsole got a couple of videos from console-modders XCM showing the latter’s prototype light gun for the PS3. It’s basically half of a PS3 controller stuck to a light gun. I think XCM is shooting for a controller that’s compatible with all shooters, hence the need to come up with something with a sizable amount of buttons.
Seems like Lenovo has set a standard for the form of the computers of the near future with their Ideapad hybrid tablet. Toshiba has a similar and sensible concept for a medical computer: The Toshiba Rx replaces the traditional clipboard and medical sheet used in hospitals in favor of a touchscreen tablet: “Using state of the art medical software, nurses and doctors can document, diagnose, communicate and educate while bedside or on the go.”
It’s an elegant improvement over traditional notetaking – a digital clipboard means less paper, less waste, and easier filing and archiving.
How’d you like a desktop computer that works without any physical keyboard or monitor? That’s what industrial designer Paulina Carlos envisions with her Dell Froot concept PC.
Instead of connecting to a traditional monitor or USB keyboard, the Froot features a pair of projectors – one that casts the keyboard on a tabletop, and the other one that projects the computer screen on the wall.
Got an itchy joystick trigger finger? Like to blow stuff up? Then you might want to check out this new game that just hit the shelves over on the Xbox Live Marketplace.
Xona Games’ Decimation X is best described as Space Invaders on steroids meth.
