Hackers + Mit + the Tardis: the Doctor is in!
A bunch of hackers and pranksters managed to plant a TARDIS on the top of Building 7 at MIT. Now that’s a great prank, if I’ve ever seen one! I like how unobtrusive this hack is.

Joyride Atomic Motion Simulator: This + 3d Gaming = Awesome (or Vomit)

Joyride Atomic Motion Simulator: This + 3d Gaming = Awesome (or Vomit)
I’m not a fan of the current glasses-requiring 3D tech, but I’m sure even I would find it a blast to play a 3D game with the JoyRide Atomic A1 Ultra-Compact Motion Simulator. I know, I know, we’ve been fooled and seduced by epic-sounding product names before, but this one is more promising.

Wall Tentacle: Because Mounting a Whole Octopus Would be Too Ridiculous

Epic Mass Effect DIY M8 Assault Rifle Prop Rocks Hard

Epic Mass Effect DIY M8 Assault Rifle Prop Rocks Hard
A dude named Harrison Krix (the same guy who built the world’s best Daft Punk helmet) calls himself a 28-year-old dork, but I would say he is more of a geek than a dork.
