Abiko Rips Off Dyson Air Multiplier Design, Prices It Close to the Real Deal
Let’s be honest here among friends. The only reason to buy knock off products is because we are too cheap to buy the real deal. You know what I mean guys, it’s like buying your girl that fake Coach purse with the “G” rather than the “C” thinking they won’t know the difference.

Annoying Tune Stuck in Your Head? Unhear It!
Ever had a song stuck in your head for a few days and tried desperately to get it rid of it? Now you can use unhearit to make sure that you won’t hear it again. The song is apparently a random song and “uses the latest in reverse auditory melodic unstickification technology” to purge your mind.

Pokemon Fusion: Gotta Match ‘Em All
Alex Onsager’s Pokémon Fusion isn’t just a time sink, it’s a time black hole, even if you’re not a Pokémon fan. All you need to do is select two monsters from the list – the one on the left will be the base of the new monster’s body, and the one on the right will be the base of the color and the face of the new monster – like so:

High-Voltage Washer Launcher: Nerd Power

High-Voltage Washer Launcher: Nerd Power
If you live near Bob Davis, before you get out of your house listen closely for machines charging up, tin cans being crushed, or for this weird alien whistling noise.

Long Lost Atari Systens

Long Lost Atari Systens
Now I was always a big Atari fanboy back in the day, with one of my first computers being an Atari 800, followed later by an Atari 5200. But one of the things Atari was notorious for back in the day was their long list of vaporware and delayware systems.

Chromos: Safe for Rich Dudes Winds Fancy Watches Automatically
The most I have ever spent on a watch was about $100, and that was pushing it. I haven’t worn a watch in five years now; I just use my smartphone for the time. The rich folks out there like their fancy watches though and need a place to keep all those watches safe from thieves along with their other fancy stuff.

Padtab Wall Mounts Your iPad and is Perfect for Geek Art

Padtab Wall Mounts Your iPad and is Perfect for Geek Art
At my house, the iPad is very popular. I need to glue a bell on the back of it so I know where it is. My kids run off with it to play games, my wife hides it places just to mess with me, and when I want to read something on it, I can’t find it.

Spotted on the pages of Make:, this DIY Pac-Man costume is not only super awesome, it’s completely playable.

Midbot Makes Your Notebook Into a Robot Controlled Online

Midbot Makes Your Notebook Into a Robot Controlled Online
I like robots, but I won’t really be interested in one for my house until they can clean for me or mow the lawn. Once that milestone is hit, I will get out the credit card and buy one.

Homer Eats Some Donuts on the Escalator
I’m not sure how I missed this when it first came out, but this great escalator was made for The Simpsons movie. It features everyone’s favorite dolt chomping down on donuts at the bottom of the escalator.

Is Reddit Bigger Than Digg? [Infographic]

Is Reddit Bigger Than Digg? [Infographic]
There’s a reason why I’ve always liked Reddit better than Digg. Maybe it had to do with how cheeky they are, maybe it’s got to do with the fact that I strongly disliked the whole Digg Mafia thing.

Toshiba Recalls T Series Laptops Due to Burn Risk

Toshiba Recalls T Series Laptops Due to Burn Risk
I don’t get what the deal is with notebook manufacturers over the last few years not being able to make machines that don’t over heat and burn stuff up. I guess we should be thankful that it’s not 2007 all over again with notebooks bursting into flames everywhere.
