Last month, Xbox 360 users were finally given the option to transfer their user data to a flash drive. Note that you can use any flash drive for this purpose, but that won’t stop companies like SanDisk from releasing “official” Xbox 360 flash drives.
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.
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.
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.
You read right, it takes this contraption 24.02
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.
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.
So what is it exactly?
“Aging Couple” Jennifer and Jeff have finally hit the jackpot – they’re having twins! While the rest of us should have no reason to care, the couple chose to share the good news using a complicated, action-packed visual analogy: the Death Star battle scene from Star Wars: A New Hope.
While there are already several ways of streaming media throughout your home network, you might want to check out Netgear’s upcoming Wireless-N HD Home Theater Kit, which promises high quality streaming – even multiple Blu-ray streams – with plug and play ease.
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.
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.
TomTom plans on selling voice tracks from Darth Vader, C-3PO, Yoda and Han Solo, but they’ll will probably sell more Darth Vader tracks than anything, as is evidenced by this hilarious clip of Darth in the recording studio laying down some phat GPS tracks.
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.
I have to agree that many people have no idea when to use their gadgets. I’m all for reading in the bathroom, but would you take your iPad with you?
Thankfully, Fast Company has come up with this great little cheat sheet, that you can cut out and take with you anywhere.
“In a future full of iPads, iPhone OS 4, next-gen iPhones, and iPod Touches with cameras (plus whatever Gray Powell leaves at a German beer joint next week), a significant portion of your tech life will likely bear an Apple logo — and keep Steve Jobs in the finest stonewashed jeans regionally available.
Darth vader Meets Space Invaders. Need I say more?
RoboRock’s Space Invaders x Star Wars mashup t-shirt is geeky perfection. But if you want one, you’d better be quick. It’s available for one day only over at Riptapparel (5/4/2010) for just $10 bucks.
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.”
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!”,
Like everything in this world, Apple is not perfect, although lately Apple seems to be showing more of its “not perfect” side. Case in point: Shane’s complaint about the outrageous prices of digital magazines on the iPad.
