Iron Man Better be More Fun in Flash Drive Form Than the New Flick

Iron Man Better be More Fun in Flash Drive Form Than the New Flick
I took my 8-year-old son to see Iron Man 2 last Friday, and he was all excited about it after seeing the action on the previews. We had only been watching the film for about half an hour before he asked me when it would be over and was ready to leave.

Our Cylon Overlords Would Approve of This Watch

Our Cylon Overlords Would Approve of This Watch
Although Cylons don’t really need watches, since they’re androids and probably have some sort of on-board timer circuit, I’m sure that our robot overlords would approve of us human scum wearing these watches. The Robot 1259C Watch was designed by Japan’s Seahope.

Custom Donkey Kong Action Figures: We Prefer Pixels

Custom Donkey Kong Action Figures: We Prefer Pixels
eBay seller fugayzie is selling this neat set of custom-made Donkey Kong action figures, complete with the iconic red steel bar and barrels. As you can see, fugayzie went for a realistic version of these classic video game characters.

Dragon Quest Controller Can Only be Used by King Arthur

Dragon Quest Controller Can Only be Used by King Arthur
…at least that’s what it looks like to me. This is a concept image of the controller for the Wii port of the arcade game Dragon Quest Monsters Battle Road Victory. Clearly, an absurd title deserves an equally absurd controller.

Vertu Ascent Mobile Phone Should Come in Red and Gold

Vertu Ascent Mobile Phone Should Come in Red and Gold
If you ask me, Vertu missed one hell of a cross-promotion deal with the latest incarnation of their Ascent mobile phone, especially with the phone’s armored style and aluminum and titanium material. I mean look at it, wouldn’t it be awesome in Iron Man’s colors?

Super Mario Bros. Beaten on a Dancepad

Super Mario Bros. Beaten on a Dancepad
Now I had enough trouble beating the original Super Mario Bros. with a game pad, so when I saw this clip of a guy beating the game with his feet, my jaw about dropped to the floor.

Sony Second Generation Vaio P Computers Are Odd as Ever

Sony Second Generation Vaio P Computers Are Odd as Ever
Sony first showed off its Vaio P line of computers at CES a few years back and they were downright offended if you called the machines netbooks. This was despite their small form factor, netbook hardware, and netbook performance mind you.

The iPod Revolution: How Your Cute Apple Device Changed the Music Business

The iPod Revolution: How Your Cute Apple Device Changed the Music Business
You can either love it or hate it, but there’s no denying that the iPod changed the face of the music industry. Even though you’d rather not think too much about it, especially if you don’t own a Mac, Apple has made an incredible impact on music.

Android-Winmo-Iphoneos Guitar: What Happens When the Phone Rings?

Android-Winmo-Iphoneos Guitar: What Happens When the Phone Rings?
This crazy looking contraption isn’t just a bunch of smartphones, it’s a musical instrument. Made for a presentation at MobileCampBrussels, the Phone Guitar is made out of five smartphones (actually there’s an iPod Touch standing in for the iPhone) on three different mobile platforms using three different programing languages as well as two third-party apps, a custom cross-platform sequencer app, a stick, some battery powered speakers, and a whole lot of duct tape.

Gummix Insect Maker: Yum, Delicious Candy

Gummix Insect Maker: Yum, Delicious Candy
Do your kids like to play with bugs? They’d never want to put one in their mouth, would they? Well thanks to Japanese toy-maker Megahouse, they can now make their own gummi bugs and eat ’em up.

Nintendo Home Theater Pc: Now That’S an Entertainment System

Nintendo Home Theater Pc: Now That’S an Entertainment System
One of the awesome things about technology is that as the years go by, we get to have increasingly powerful computers in small form-factors. Not only does that lead to more versatile portable gadgets like the iPhone and the PSP, it also leads to awesome mods, like this home theater PC that’s been stuffed into a NES case.

Super Meat Boy: if Mario Had No Skin and Koopa was a Lot More Cruel

Super Meat Boy: if Mario Had No Skin and Koopa was a Lot More Cruel
Narrative-wise, platformers are the weirdest of video games. After all, it’s hard to build a plot that adequately jutifies hours of running and jumping. Take Super Mario Bros. for example. It stars an Italian plumber who eats flowers and mushrooms en route to beat a huge, spiky turtle.

How a Flash-Heavy Website Looks Like on the iPad

How a Flash-Heavy Website Looks Like on the iPad
Apple claims that Safari on the iPad is the “best way to see the sites.” Well, here’s how Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 3 website looks like on the iPad:

iWatch Wristwatch Concept: Apple, Make This Now.

iWatch Wristwatch Concept: Apple, Make This Now.
Now that you’ve got an iMac, an iPhone and an iPad, you need yet another Apple wonder-gadget, don’t you? While this concept design for a timepiece isn’t actually from Apple, it’s cool enough that it could be.

Make Your Own Iron Man Arc Reactor

Make Your Own Iron Man Arc Reactor
I’m sure a lot of cosplayers out there would take a repulsor blast in the face to have a slick Iron Man or War Machine costume. While not impossible, building the full costume takes an insane amount of talent, time and materials.

Mopho USB Analog Synthesizer: Old Meets New

Mopho USB Analog Synthesizer: Old Meets New
The Mopho is a monophonic analog synthesizer that is fully-programmable, has a USB port and can process external audio, all in a relatively lightweight package. It has “feedback effects that can range from subtle distortion to extreme skronk.” I don’t know what “skronk” is, but it sounds pretty funky, so a stronk taken to the extreme can only be more of a good thing.
