Twitter Mug: Custom Mug From Twitter Profile Pics

Twitter Mug: Custom Mug From Twitter Profile Pics
Nope, this mug won’t tweet for you, but it will show off all the people you follow on Twitter. While a tweeting mug could be kind of cool, it would be pretty useless unless you’d be able to input some swanky 140-character tweets.

When Darth Vader Takes a Penalty Kick…

When Darth Vader Takes a Penalty Kick…

PopCap’s legendary tower defense game is coming to XBLA next month, bringing with it 2 player co-op & versus mode(!) and lots of fun-looking extras. Did I mention that you can play as the Zombies? Yeah, yeah, this is old news, but I don’t care, because the trailer is full of win:

Spock’S Monitor Location is Illogical

Spock’S Monitor Location is Illogical
Today’s computer use pro-tip is brought to you by Star Trek. This was made by a commenter on xADAMx‘s blog, after the latter posted the original reminder, which he saw in one of the bathrooms of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.

Flavor-Changing Meta Cookie: Willy Wonka Gets Real

Flavor-Changing Meta Cookie: Willy Wonka Gets Real
Stealing a page right out of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, this strange looking headgear turns a single cookie into one of seven different flavors. Scientist Tajuki Narumi and a team from the University of Tokyo created this unusual contraption called the “Meta Cookie“.

Creepy Mr. Spock Doggie Mug: Live Long and Walkies

Creepy Mr. Spock Doggie Mug: Live Long and Walkies
I used to have some mugs with pictures of dogs on them when I was a kid – until they eventually broke. I think I still have one in storage, but who knows. Anyway, if you like having strange images on your mugs, then this Mr.

You’ve gotta hand it to the casemodding community. Despite the fact that there are plenty of off-the shelf gadgets that let you play old NES and SNES games, the homebrew portable hits keep on coming. This time we have Sharon aka “LovableChevy” aka “The Bondo Queen” and her HandyDuo.

No one should be allowed to buy even a single box of soda  from this stack: Mario’s just itching to smash the question block, but Orange Crush might go spraying everywhere.

Pokapon Dx: Wigs a Poppin’!

Pokapon Dx: Wigs a Poppin’!
We here in the U.S. might have had Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots when we were kids, but in Japan back in 1979, they had a little game called Pokapon. Instead of knocking off your opponent’s block like in Rock ‘Em Sock’ Em, the objective of Pokapon was to beat your friend senseless until their wig flies off their head.

Adidas Jabba the Hutt Shoes: My Your Feet Are Slimy

Adidas Jabba the Hutt Shoes: My Your Feet Are Slimy
I love these new adidas shoes inspired by the slimy slug-like body of Jabba the Hutt. Each pair of adidas Originals Jabba the Hutt Attitude Hi-tops features a shiny, lumpy green finish, complete with green laces, and scaly details on the side of the soles.

Minimal Mario and Simplistic Street Fighter

Minimal Mario and Simplistic Street Fighter
You’ve gotta love these ultra-minimal graphics of Bowser (with his back to us), Luigi, Mario and Princess Peach by Nick Luckett. The Street Fighter ones by infinitecontinues which inspired Nick to create his ain’t half bad either.
