Sonic and Knuckles R/C Cars: Hedgehogs and Echidnas on Wheels

Sonic and Knuckles R/C Cars: Hedgehogs and Echidnas on Wheels
Here’s something fun for all you retro gamers out there. Classic SEGA mascot Sonic the Hedgehog and his spiny rival Knuckles now have another way to get around instead of just getting into a ball and spinning frantically.

Washing Machine Cleans Bricks

Washing Machine Cleans Bricks
When I was a kid my grandmother had this set of plates that had gold leaf on them. When she got her first microwave, I used to sneak into the kitchen and put one of the plates in the microwave to see the sparks it created.

Darth Vader Likes Chewbacca Pie

Darth Vader Likes Chewbacca Pie
It’s a well-known fact that the Empire is not too fond of non-humans, Wookies especially. So it’s only appropriate that Darth Vader would enjoy a little Chewbacca Pie on his favorite plate. Leetlady, a geekette from Norway, recently made this sweet pie and added a touch of geekiness, thanks to the goofy Darth Vader plate.

Nexus One Gets Wrapped in Carbon Fiber

Nexus One Gets Wrapped in Carbon Fiber
Carbon fiber is hot. Why? The best bike frames are made out of this material and they are very sturdy as well as extremely light. Plus, it just looks cool – which is why I like the look of this Nexus One phone.

The Worst Starcraft General: Flamewar Never Changes

The Worst Starcraft General: Flamewar Never Changes
With the release of the first installment StarCraft II, the Terrans, Protoss and Zerg armies will wage war once again – not that they’ve stopped waging wars since the first game – controlled by virtual commanders-in-chief – the fast-clicking, resource managing and trash talking gamer.

Video Game Demake Art Needs to be Turned Into Actual Games
Pixelation forum member junkboy has been making video game demake mock-ups for Swedish magazine Level for several years now. He recently shared some of his creations because he didn’t want them to “just gather dust” on his hard drive.

Bubble Bobble Monster Pillows Won’T Pop When You Sit on Them

Bubble Bobble Monster Pillows Won’T Pop When You Sit on Them
I have to admit that Bubble Bobble has always been one of my favorite classic arcade games. To this date, I still bust out a game or two on my Dingoo emulator when I need to get my mind off of things.

Nexilux Guitar Controller: for Music Minimalists

Nexilux Guitar Controller: for Music Minimalists
If you’re into the Rock Band or Guitar Hero games but don’t want to lug around a full-size guitar when you’re popping over to a friend’s house to play, you might want to check out this compact guitar.

Rollermouse Free: the Exact Opposite of the Magic Trackpad

Rollermouse Free: the Exact Opposite of the Magic Trackpad
Like many of Apple’s products, the Magic Trackpad is more form than function – it looks great but it’s not very practical. On the other hand, Contour Design’s design philosophy seems to be the opposite of that.

Steampunk Globe and Newfangled iPad Control Google Earth

Steampunk Globe and Newfangled iPad Control Google Earth
The steampunk “Electromagnetic Geospacial Globe and Remote View with Obligatory Goggles” doesn’t just look cool, I like what creator John Knight is trying to do – making the ol’ globe more useful. RFID tags attached to the surface of the globe allow Knight to control Google Earth on an iPad and provide a more detailed view of a chosen area.

Mass Effect 2 Costumes Should have Won Best in Show

Mass Effect 2 Costumes Should have Won Best in Show
Now that the dust has settled on 2010’s Comic-Con, it’s taking us a little time to digest all things awesome which surfaced at this year’s show. One of the greatest achievements of the show in my opinion is these most excellent Mass Effect 2 costumes by FyrielArt (aka Crabcat Industries).
