I’m not sure what the deal is with all these guys combining Apple tech with wood, but here’s yet another iPod/iPhone dock crafted from a tree.
This dock is finished in cedar wood and includes integrated Altec Lansing speakers.
Hey there iPad user, have you ever wished you could carry your iPad with you when you’re buying groceries? Do you also run a pizza shop and wish that your delivery personnel could carry an iPad on their chest so that it can display “Hot Pizza” when the customer receives their order?
At first glance, this might just look like one of those organs you used to see in the shopping mall when you were a kid. But under the hood of this bit of musical nostalgia is the ultimate chiptune machine.
Created by Linus Akesson, the Chipophone has the looks of an old organ, but the brains needed to crank out awesome 8-bit sounds for live chiptune performances.
I like the idea of a hydrogen fuel cell. I can fill a small cartridge with hydrogen, and then power my gadgets from the fuel cell as long as my hydrogen source holds out. That means that I won’t need an AC outlet to keep my iPhone running.
This 8-bit map of New York City was made by Brett Camper for the 8-Bit Cities project. The goal is not to make your city look like a video game map, but to make it feel less foreign and more familiar.
I don’t know if they really achieve this goal, but I do like the retro look of the maps.
Even Jedi knights get lazy sometimes, and when they do, it’s good that this handy lightsaber has a bottle opener on the end of it. It’s perfect to crack open an ice cold beer after a long day of fighting the Empire.
This is a unique-looking bottle opener and will definitely be the talk of all of the geeks at your next party.
I really thought that Pkmnjunky7’s Daft Punk helmet was the coolest cosplay prop ever – until I saw this.
It might have taken Harrison Krix of Volpin Props over 17 months to build this Daft Punk helmet, but it was clearly worth the wait.
Aside from FaceTime, the Retina Display and the revolutionary paradigm-shifting flawlessly perfect antenna, a select few iPhone owners also get access to one more new feature: a dedicated, touch-sensitive End Call button. Apple just forgot to label it, but that’s easy to remedy:
With the robot-loving Japanese here in the East, DARPA in the West and nerd-filled universities all over the world, Skynet will arrive, in one form or another. We should take this opportunity to train to become members of the Resistance, granted to us by our comrade Gridlockshock, aka Kevin Bryant of the Art Institute in Dallas.
Here’s a handy little gadget you might want to set on your desktop. The Mamemo digital notepad is sort of like an electronic replacement for Post-it sticky notes.
The compact box is about the size of a small calculator, and features an LCD screen onto which you can take notes using a stylus.
It’s time for another episode of Cooking in the Kitchen with Vader and Leia. Today’s special: Bantha over toast points with a side of JarJar. At least that’s what we think some of the delicacies should be in any kitchen where you wear one of these amusing new Star Wars aprons, fresh off the shelves of the Star Wars Shop.
Leia can be found cooking in her Jabba the Hutt slave outfit, while Vader is making his grub in his standard black get-up.
These portrait projecting rings were made by the Bristol artist Luke Jerram for his wife. They were inspired by the Stanhope optical jewelry of the 19th century. Luke worked with a jeweler named Tamrakar so that this ring can project the embedded image onto a wall when a light source is applied.
The image comes from a selection of miniature slides, although I think it would be really cool if they replaced the slides with an LCD screen, so you could project moving images.
This cool video was released almost two years ago, and I think that it still looks good. Actually, it looks pretty awesome! It features a bunch of guys having a lightsaber duel.
This lightsaber duel was made by Brian Curtin, Mat Powell, and Matt Hall.
I don’t think Corneria would have won the Lylat Wars with this bunch:
Those aren’t fighters; they’re hawk food with glass bowls over their head.
Slippy’s much more adorable in that form though. You can order the Do A Barrel Roll!
Er, real LEGO. It’s a triple geek mash-up all the way across the screen! Oh what does it mean?!!
The question is, which came first – this or the shirt? Unfortunately, the shirt is extinct already sold out.
