Apple Tv Gen 2 Device Torn Down at Ifixit
We talked about that new Apple TV when it first launched early this month. The thing is now getting into the hands of geeks around the country and naturally, iFixit has ripped theirs to pieces so you can get your gadget porn fill for the day.…

Google Adds Latin Translation: Now You Can Swear in a Dead Language!

Google Adds Latin Translation: Now You Can Swear in a Dead Language!
While I did have to take Latin in 7th and 8th grade, most of it has either been stashed away deep in the recesses of my brain or forgotten. Probably the latter. However, I really like the fact that Google Translate can now translate into Latin, which is considered a…

Robolamps have More Charm Than Bay’S Transformers

Robolamps have More Charm Than Bay’S Transformers
Made of plastic pipes, sockets, wire sleeves and other common plumbing and electrical materials, these Robolamps are some of the geekiest and most unique desk lamps we’ve ever seen. They’re not all menacing like Robolamp Roddock, pictured above. Actually most of them have playful designs, like crotch lamp robot Argo,…

Iron Man Mark V Briefcase Replica: Yes, Just the Briefcase

Iron Man Mark V Briefcase Replica: Yes, Just the Briefcase
I’m not sure which market this limited edition Iron Man Mark V briefcase replica is targeting. On the one hand, it’s good for cosplays, and as a toy maybe, especially since the gadget that it’s referencing is perhaps one of the coolest things we’ve seen in sci-fi movies. On the…

Batman Utility Pouch Holds Your Phone, Adds -100 Charisma

Batman Utility Pouch Holds Your Phone, Adds -100 Charisma
OK, I am a geek. I can admit that and have no problem with that fact. I do have standards though, and draw the line when things go from geeky to downright weird. I think the new Batman TDK Utility Pouch may have dissolved that line quite well.…

Augmented Reality App Lets Women Try on Swimsuits Virtually

Augmented Reality App Lets Women Try on Swimsuits Virtually
Any man who has ever ended up shopping at the mall with his wife/girlfriend is very familiar with the guy chair. The lone chair sitting there so the guys outside the dressing room holding a purse for their lady have a place to sit while they wait for the inevitable…

Toshiba Unveils New 3d Notebook No One Really Wants

Toshiba Unveils New 3d Notebook No One Really Wants
I like the idea of 3D in my home and on my computer, but I refuse to pay a premium for the feature, and then have to wear those stupid glasses. We all know that the tech needed for 3D with no glasses is in development, and for the most…

Move Over Sci-Fi, Robot Exoskeletons Are Coming Thanks to Raytheon

Move Over Sci-Fi, Robot Exoskeletons Are Coming Thanks to Raytheon
Ah Raytheon, just the name scares some guys silly. Raytheon is a defense contractor and they’ve released some new information and videos of their new exoskeleton called the XOS 2. And no, this isn’t science-fiction. This is the closest that anyone has come to a fully functioning military exoskeleton. The…

Predator Halloween Costume Looks Amazing but Must be Amazingly Hot

Predator Halloween Costume Looks Amazing but Must be Amazingly Hot
I have to say that this Predator costume by Shawn Thorsson of Petaluma, CA, is really amazing. This costume was made for Halloween 2005, but this write-up and photos are recent. I wonder what Shawn will make for this year’s Halloween? Shawn hand-sculpted most of the features of his costume,…

Star Wars in 3-D: Lucas Gets Ready to Ruin His Classics All Over Again

Star Wars in 3-D: Lucas Gets Ready to Ruin His Classics All Over Again
What is it with George Lucas’ incessant need to monkey with his original Star Wars flicks? First, he had to go and add a bunch of stupid, out-of-place CGI to the last major re-release, and now he’s planning on releasing them in 3D. Didn’t George get the memo that 3D…

Visual Memory Nano: iPod Nano Stuffed Inside Dreamcast VMU

Visual Memory Nano: iPod Nano Stuffed Inside Dreamcast VMU
The Dreamcast’s VMU was a failed experiment. It was a great idea – a storage device that also played games – but in reality it didn’t get enough support from developers. Goteking’s hack on the other hand, was a great success, stuffing the new 6th generation iPod nano into a…

Good Morning Crono! Get Up and Get These Chrono Trigger Dioramas!
These Formation Arts trading figures of everyone’s favorite time-traveling warriors will have you doing a Poyozo Dance. Measuring 2.5 to 4 inches, the dioramas feature Crono, Robo, Lucca, Ayla, Frog and Magus of Chrono Trigger, the game so nice they released it thrice. Unfortunately, I don’t know why but Marle’s…

Rim Blackberry Playbook Tablet Takes Aim at iPad – Price, Release Date Not Set
The success that Apple has had with the iPad means that just about every maker of gadgets out there that can build a tablet wants one on the market. The latest iPad competitor to land is from RIM and is called the Blackberry PlayBook. I can’t decide if it’s a…

Voltron Go Lion 24″ Shogun Warrior Doesn’T Disassemble Into 4.8″ Lions

Voltron Go Lion 24″ Shogun Warrior Doesn’T Disassemble Into 4.8″ Lions
Anime fans know that what we know as Voltron is actually a mish mash of different animes. The first and perhaps most famous season featured five robot lions that combined to form (say it with me!) VOLTRON: DEFENDER OF THE UNIVERSE. That season was based on the anime Beast King…
