From the House of Insane Ideas comes this feature packed peripheral for geeks on the go. The Rii Mini Wireless Keyboard has 69 LED-backlit keys, and what Brando claims is the “World’s First Touchpad”. Oh Brando.
Time to update that worn out question gamers: Will your PC play Crysis… 2? A couple of screenshots have appeared in the Crymod forums and although the poster didn’t explicitly say that the pics showcase in-game graphics, I think that a game famous for its visuals can only be topped by something better looking.
Pianos are unwieldy instruments. Tables are unwieldy too, but we have no choice but to make room for at least one table in our homes – unless you’re like me, and you usually eat either in front of the computer or TV.
We can always count on the guys over at TokyoFlash to come up with new and different ways to tell the time. With their modern approach to product design, they’re now asking shoppers to weigh in on prospective designs before they go ahead and create the real watches.
This über-kitsch disco ball is fashioned after our favorite Star Wars villain, Darth Vader. You’ll be rockin’ and dancin’ underneath this floating effigy of Anakin Skywalker.
I haven’t been able to find out much information about it, but it certainly looks cool.
For those of us who grew up during the video game era, I think we all know that hedgehogs are blue, and thrive on a steady diet of shiny golden rings. Now you can show off your astute knowledge of the animal kingdom with one of these t-shirts.
We’ve mentioned this before, but this amazing rig allows you to simply take off into the air. The most interesting thing is that it combines a jetski with a jetpack. It’s called the Jetlev Flyer and it’s finally available for purchase!
I have to admit that it looks dangerous, but probably not as dangerous as the real jetpacks attempts that have been made.
Unveiled at CES 2010, mPower Technologies‘ Emergency Illuminator is a powerhouse of a flashlight. It contains two rechargeable and replaceable CR123 batteries for normal use. But it also has a reserve battery, which can hold its full capacity for up to 20 years.
The Emergency Illuminator’s LED blasts out 180 lumens of light.
Sure, sure, the Na’vi people are kind, nature-loving folk. But they also have quite a dark side if you know what buttons to push. Clearly, this cute Avatar-inspired Na’vi cake was created before the RDA came along and knocked down Hometree.
This chubby little Na’vi was created for the That Takes The Cake cake competition (aka 2010: A Cake Odyssey) in Austin, TX last week.
From the same demented mind that came up with the Redundant Clock comes the cruel Diet Scale. If large numbers don’t affect you anymore, how about being told that from now on you should only eat… water?
There’s a new threat in Azeroth, one so fearsome that not even the combined might of the Alliance and the Horde can stop it: Hackers. Apparently a trojan has been spreading that intercepts the authentication code generated by the Blizzard Authenticator.
When my son turned seven, I did what most geeks would do when he wanted a computer. I upgraded my computer and built him a machine out of the left over parts. My daughter decided it was cool and wanted a computer of her own, but she is five and still thinks the way to get things to do what you want is to bash them with a Barbie a lot of the time.
Sariel has just created this amazing robotic hand, that he built using only LEGO Technics parts. It took him just a weekend to come up with his build, that he appropriately calls The Hand. I don’t know what it is with all the LEGOs this week, but there’s just some awesome stuff out there!
Robert Stephenson is a robotics student in the UK, and he’s created an app for the iPhone that allows you to control a robot. For his tests, Robert uses his hexapod robot.
In the video below, you can see the app in action.
