If you don’t have the time, patience (or money) to commit to games like World of Warcraft, you might want to check out this game… 5 Minute MMORPG works exactly as advertised. The browser-based Flash game lets you go online against other live players (okay, 10 simultaneous players isn’t really massive), and play as one of over 30 different characters.

Pac-Man Pairs Power Pills With Pinot Noir

Pac-Man Pairs Power Pills With Pinot Noir
In celebration of Pac-Man’s 30th anniversary, the Japanese are getting drunk on wine. At least that’s what this unlikely commemorative set of Pac-Man wine glasses would have you believe. My Japanese isn’t very good, but it looks like you’ll be able to get a pair of these glasses, along with a set of collectible Pac-Man wine coasters for about ¥5250 (appx.

LEGO Robot Runs Android OS, Solves Rubik’s Cubes
I probably couldn’t solve a Rubik’s cube in 25 minutes, let alone under a minute. However, this cool ‘bot can solve it in less than 25 seconds! Now how neat is that? Oh, by the way, it’s made out of LEGOs.

Scope Watch Looks Like More Work Than Its Worth

Scope Watch Looks Like More Work Than Its Worth
Normally when I talk about weird watches that turn up over at Yanko Design, they’re concepts you can’t buy if they are appealing. Today we have a new and sort of cool watch called the Scope Watch that looks like it would be hard to use.

Mercury Arc Valve Rectifier is Something Every Mad Scientist Should have
I have no idea what this is for, but I like it! As a matter of fact, I wouldn’t mind having one of these in my living room – or at least in my la-bor-a-tory. It’s actually something called a mercury arc valve rectifier, and it sure looks cool when powered up.

Electrolux Shine Washing Machine Concepts: More Fashionable Than Your Clothes

Electrolux Shine Washing Machine Concepts: More Fashionable Than Your Clothes
Today’s washing machines are anything but stylish. If you ask me they look like burly, angry computers. But if Electrolux has its way, we’ll soon be able to say the words “washing machine” and “sexy” in the same sentence.

Star Wars Voices on Tomtom Gps: You have Arrived at Your Death Star Nation

Star Wars Voices on Tomtom Gps: You have Arrived at Your Death Star Nation
If there’s one thing I really love about TomTom’s GPS navigators is the fact that you can download and replace the stock voices with different ones if you’re sick of the default. So you can imagine the big grin on my face when I found out that TomTom and Lucasfilm have paired up to bring us voices from Star Wars characters.

Steampunk Jewelry: Gears for Geeks

Steampunk Jewelry: Gears for Geeks
Naturally, these cool pieces of handmade jewelry aren’t for everyone, but the steampunk allure that maker Ricky Wolbrom injects into her designs is kind of amazing if you are into the retro-mechanical look. All of Ricky’s pieces are one-off or limited edition jewelry, neatly fitting into the steampunk genre, complete with all requisite gears and other antique bits and bobs.

Prince of Parking Lot: Jordan Mechner’S Brother Acting Out Prince’S Moves

Prince of Parking Lot: Jordan Mechner’S Brother Acting Out Prince’S Moves
Jordan Mechner – creator of classics like Karateka and Prince of Persia, among other things – posted his old journal entries on his website. The journal – which Mechner started in 1985 after graduating from college – tells “how Prince of Persia came to be, and how it almost didn’t.” It’s a long-ass journal, but there are lots of gems and insights in there, plus bonus tidbits like this short video of his brother, David, acting out the Prince’s moves “in the Reader’s Digest parking lot.” Here’s the clip: And now you know who to blame for the Prince’s painfully slow ledge climb animation.

Boba Fett Helmet has a Cheap Bounty on Its Head

Boba Fett Helmet has a Cheap Bounty on Its Head
Entertainment Earth is showing off a new full-size Boba Fett helmet for pre-order. It features an articulated rangefinder and electronic sounds. I love how EE specifies that the helmet was “specially designed to look awesome for kids of all ages!”, because I’m willing to bet that the first ones to snag it won’t be “kids”, technically speaking.
