Steve Jobs Gets Busted

Steve Jobs Gets Busted
…and by that, I mean he gets his likeness carved into a bust. In this case, I’m talking about a fun retro-pixel art bust you can put on your desk alongside your shiny new iToys. Designed by Dutch artist Metin Seven (who also created the awesome Technabob voxel mascot), this Steve Jobs bust not only looks cool, it’s made with a high-tech 3D printing process, thus completing the circle of geek life.

Quirky Trek Support Keeps Your Batteries Charged on the Go

Quirky Trek Support Keeps Your Batteries Charged on the Go
I bet that many geeks have the same issues when they travel that I do. The biggest problem is that I tend to travel with as many gadgets as I do clothing. It’s also really hard to keep the things charged up when I am on the road, and stuff always runs out of juice when I want to use it.

Rampant View Turns Your iPod Nano 5g Into a Helmet Cam

Rampant View Turns Your iPod Nano 5g Into a Helmet Cam
They say that necessity is the mother of invention and so the story goes with the Rampant View helmet cam system. A guy and his son wanted a cheap helmet cam for a ski trip so they cobbled up something from foam and other materials to hold the 5th gen iPod nano that has a camera inside.

Kisai Round-Trip: Another Barely Decipherable Watch From Tokyoflash? Huh, Wha?

Kisai Round-Trip: Another Barely Decipherable Watch From Tokyoflash? Huh, Wha?
Those crazy scientists over at Tokyoflash came up with another watch, that (surprise) is strangely hard to read – the Kisai Round Trip. But that’s what we expect from Tokyoflash, right? Like a lot of their watches, this one is also charged via a USB port, which is handy, but it still takes 3.5 hours to charge up this watch, and you’ll have to do this every month.

Mimobot Intros Luke and Han Solo Stormtrooper Flash Drives

Mimobot Intros Luke and Han Solo Stormtrooper Flash Drives
These new Mimobot flash drives look pretty cool because when they are not in use, they look like stormtroopers. When you take off the helmet to plug it in to your computer, you’ll find either Luke Skywalker or Han Solo hiding beneath.

Iron Man Cross-Stitch: Proof That Tony Stark Can be Art

Iron Man Cross-Stitch: Proof That Tony Stark Can be Art
Tony Stark would probably balk at the idea of an Iron Man cross-stitch, but I’m sure he’ll change his mind once he sees the surprise that this particular piece has.

Street Fighters by Country: Stereotypes Fight!

Street Fighters by Country: Stereotypes Fight!
It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that the World Warrriors are caricatures of their respective cultures, which is why GamesRadar’s The World According To Street Fighter is such an interesting piece, if only to remind us that street fighters Joe and Mike exist.

Star Trek Enterprise Pizza Wheel: These Are the Voyages of the Starship Pepperoni

Star Trek Enterprise Pizza Wheel: These Are the Voyages of the Starship Pepperoni
Ok, get ready for it. This could be the best piece of Star Trek memorabilia ever. Melding the geeky pursuits of being a Trekkie and eating junk food, this pizza cutter is designed to look just like the Starship Enterprise.

DIY Coilgun Does Serious Damage With Electricity and Magnets

DIY Coilgun Does Serious Damage With Electricity and Magnets
YouTube user Jason, also known as Larsplatoon, has put together a fully functioning coilgun after two years of effort. So WTF is a coilgun? It sounds like something cool. It’s actually a gun that fires a projectile with magnetic force instead of gunpowder.

Blue Microphones Debuts Mikey for Flip Cameras

Blue Microphones Debuts Mikey for Flip Cameras
I have recorded my share of video on some of the lower priced camcorders on the market and the video quality is usually very good, with HD resolution being common these days. What is also common is for you to have nice video quality and then have sound that is flat and not up to the same standards as the video.

Windro Robot: This Roomba Does Windows

Windro Robot: This Roomba Does Windows
While I don’t have a Roomba, I used to have a boss who kept watching the infomercials a few years ago and finally got himself one. Love them or hate them, robot vacuum cleaners are here to stay.

Ihome Ip3 Studio Series iPod/iPhone Dock Gets 50w of Thump
iHome has one of the largest ranges of iPod and iPad docks around. The company has added one more offering to that range today with a new dock called the iP3. The new device has Bongiovi Digital Power Station tech inside with 50W of power if you’re looking for some serious sound.

Super Mario Mushroom and Goomba iPad Cases Make Me Want to Buy an iPad

Super Mario Mushroom and Goomba iPad Cases Make Me Want to Buy an iPad
The whole world knows that Super Mario turned 25 this month, but you know who else turned 25? Everyone else in that game. How else would Mario grow instantaneously without the help of the Super Mushroom?

Boba Fett Backpack is a Clone of Boba Fett’S Jetpack

Boba Fett Backpack is a Clone of Boba Fett’S Jetpack
Every bounty hunter needs a jet pack. Barring that, a backpack that looks like a jet pack, so you’ll at least have a place to put the heads, ears and whatever body parts you collect of your enemies.

Poopocalypse : Best Game Name of the Year

Poopocalypse : Best Game Name of the Year
While it certainly wouldn’t be the first game I’ve heard of where pooping is a central element (yeah, I can’t believe it either), but Poopocalypse definitely has the best name of the genre. From what I can tell, Wolpertinger Games‘ Xbox Live Indie game is all about pooping pidgeons.

Etch a Sketch iPad Case Gets Official, Can Draw More Than Straight Lines

Etch a Sketch iPad Case Gets Official, Can Draw More Than Straight Lines
While it’s not as cozy looking as the soft Etch A Sketch laptop sleeve, this case for the iPad is much more faithful to the original design. That’s because Headcase managed to license the Etch A Sketch design from Ohio Art before they built out their iPad case.
