Do you miss the scientific quackery of the early 18th century? Then have I’ got a deal for you. This phrenology head is the perfect way to figure out what’s wrong with your brain – as long as you don’t care if it’s wrong 100% of the time.

Steampunk Professor X Wheelchair: What if… Prof. X was a 19th Century Drunk?

Steampunk Professor X Wheelchair: What if… Prof. X was a 19th Century Drunk?
Then this would definitely be his ride. First class craftsmanship, as befits a powerful telepath. A powerful alcoholic telepath. Forge and Zero probably helped him make the wheelchair, as it’s made of parts from the past 135 years.

Grungebuds Are Clearly Not Grunge Buds

Grungebuds Are Clearly Not Grunge Buds
…not when they’re embedded with Swarovski crystals that form the shape of a cat. A pink cat. You can pick up a pair of GrungeBuds Crystal Cat Pink at Atomic9’s online store for $40 (USD). You can also “choose your grunge” from other designs – designs which I am not making up – like a dragon, a monkey, and a panda.

Ubisoft Drm Epic Fail as Assassin’S Creed 2 Servers Crash: Ubigettinonmynerves

Ubisoft Drm Epic Fail as Assassin’S Creed 2 Servers Crash: Ubigettinonmynerves
Ubisoft got a taste of Murphy’s Law as the company’s newly implemented Internet-dependent anti-piracy measure has left owners of the PC version of Assassin’s Creed II unable to log in and thus play their game. It was bound to happen, but I didn’t think it would happen almost right from the get go.

Street Headphones: Loud in More Ways Than One
A byproduct of Brian Garret Schuur’s graduate thesis (pdf), the Street Headphones has a laser sintered (i.e. melted) polyamide outer shell. Made using rapid manufacturing, customers can personalize the shell by having something custom etched into it, like the names of your favorite musicians, as shown below.

Doctor Who Tardis Zipperrobe Takes Your Clothes to Another Dimension

Doctor Who Tardis Zipperrobe Takes Your Clothes to Another Dimension
I’ve yet to see an episode of the classic British TV show, so forgive me if my understanding of his powers is wrong. The point is that this is one of the geekiest containers for your clothes.

Which the Game: More Like What… Where? Who… Holy Shi-

Which the Game: More Like What… Where? Who… Holy Shi-
Saw this on TV yesterday. At around 4 in the morning. Not good. Which is a short first-person PC game which gives players a simple goal: find a way out of the goddamn horror house. Game creator Mike Inel used simple graphics to great effect.

Strobeshnik Hard Drive Clock Tells Time Perfectly Once It Spins Up to Speed

Strobeshnik Hard Drive Clock Tells Time Perfectly Once It Spins Up to Speed
Check out this cool clock made from an old hard drive. Built by modder Svofski, the clock tells time on the face of the hard drive’s rapidly spinning platter. The Strobeshnik hard drive clock uses a stroboscopic effect to make it look like the numbers of the clock are persistent on the face of the drive platter – which Svofski galvanically etched to make the cool cutout numbers.

Dodobongo USB Dog: Don’T Know Why, but I Want One

Dodobongo USB Dog: Don’T Know Why, but I Want One
I’ll start out by saying that I had no idea what a Dodobongo was before I wrote this article. But from what I can tell, he’s some sort of goofy-looking animated dog from Japan. Whether or not you know what they heck he is, this USB version of the disproportionate mutt looks like it could be fun sitting on your desk.

Atari 2600 Joystick Soap: Tub Games

Atari 2600 Joystick Soap: Tub Games
We’ve featured our share of soaps that look like video game controllers before, but this is the first time I’ve seen any that look just like classic Atari 2600 joysticks. The guys over at eatsleepshop sell these soaps for just $3 (USD) each, and they look great in any old-school gamer’s bathroom.

If you’re into cranking out some really big electronic sounds, you might want to check out this nifty little device called the Wicks Looper – Acid Mix. The $119 (USD) gadget from Australia’s Rarebeasts can push out some really thick electronic noise loops, perfect for live electronic performances.

Skinput Uses Your Skin as an Input Device

Skinput Uses Your Skin as an Input Device
CMU researcher Chris Harrison’s Skinput is an amazing new technology. It’s a new interface concept that just makes sense, and to top it off, it’s also pretty darn cool. Input devices haven’t changed much in the last few decades.

Segmentus is Neither a Roman Torture Device Nor a Transformer

Segmentus is Neither a Roman Torture Device Nor a Transformer
When I was a kid, my grandmother had this matchstick plaque hanging in her kitchen. I looked at the thing for a while once trying to figure out what exactly it said. As it turns out the thing said “Jesus” you just had to look really hard to see the word in with the pattern the matchsticks made.

Martin Aircraft Presents Their Real Jetpack!

Martin Aircraft Presents Their Real Jetpack!
A company from New Zealand is going to start selling flying jetpacks commercially. Strangely enough, these real jetpacks cost $75,000, which is less than the earth-bound JetLev Flyer which we posted about yesterday. The Martin Aircraft Company jetpacks have about 200 HP coming out of their dual propellers.
