I’ve certainly seen my fair share of Nintendo portable casemods over the years, but I have to say that this Gamecube handheld is one of my new faves.
I suppose it’s because this is modder techknott’s second Gamecube portable that it’s so well put together.
Actually, probably not. Robots are still clunkers in my book. However, it looks like the RoboCup Japan Open 2010 is currently happening in Osaka, Japan. It’s the world’s biggest robot soccer tournament (!) and has 225 teams from all over the world competing for the ultimate title in robot soccerdom!
The competition was started in 1997, and has a goal of creating a bunch of robots that will ultimately defeat a bunch of humans playing soccer, likely sometime in 2050 – after Skynet has won.
It’s funny how comic book characters rarely age. I’ve never been an ultimate Iron Man fan – Spider-Man always did it for me. It looks like Marvel is reprinting Tales of Suspense #39 from 1963 to celebrate the release of Iron Man 2 and the new Diesel fragrance, Only the Brave.
I can certainly understand that the print publishing industry is taking a beating with the poor economy, and many marketers moving ad buys online. I get that the print industry needs to sell issues to stay afloat.
Nintendo announced this morning that not only are they releasing the elusive black Wii in the United States on May 9th, but that they will also start bundling all sorts of bonus goodies with every Wii they sell.
While pricing will remain at $199.99
This crazy home arcade system combines the fun of arcade racing with the fun of drinking beer – all without risk of getting a ticket or worse yet, killing anyone.
Dream Arcades’ Octane 120 Beer Arcade is the perfect entertainment centerpiece for any mancave.
You think the PlayStation Move controller looks weird? Well what do you make of this?
A Japanese website has a collection of crazy-ass Famicom controllers, from arcade-style fight sticks to… I don’t even know what some of them are for.
The UO DJ Mixer is a nice gift for newbie DJs. It lets you combine music from a pair of iPods or iPhones – and add effects like reverb, filter and flange. You can connect it to a sound system and share your mix with everyone, or use the bundled headphones if you’re not that confident with your skills yet.
Apparently in the United States, the relationship of many married couples is being threatened by fart, so much so that a “science teacher” created a fart-absorbing blanket and named it “The Better Marriage Blanket.” And here I was thinking that snoring (or having 8 kids and going on a reality show) was the main reason why marriages dissolve, not flatulence.
It may look like an ordinary comforter (heck, there’s a chance that it is an ordinary comforter), but apparently the Better Marriage Blanket has a lining of carbon fabric that traps fart molecules, thereby saving your marriage.
I guess you don’t have to put this up in your kid’s nursery, but that’s the first place that jumps to mind when I see a mobile hanging from the ceiling. Of course this Bioshock mobile might give your young one permanent nightmares, so you might want to be careful about where you hang it.
Artist SaltyandSweet makes these disturbing mobiles from the world of Rapture, complete with Splicers, Big Daddies and Little Sisters ready to hang wherever you see fit.
Each one is laser-cut from solid black mat board, and can be found over at SaltyandSweet’s Etsy shop for $33 (USD).
