Scosche Sneakpeek 2 Makes It Easy to Hook an iPad or iPhone to Your Tv
There are a lot of folks out there who have an iPad or iPhone that  like to stream content with from various sources like YouTube, Netflix, their video camera or their media library. The catch is that it can be a hassle getting that video onto a larger screen for viewing.

Papercraft Minecraft: Low-Res Cuteness

Papercraft Minecraft: Low-Res Cuteness
Fans of Minecraft – perhaps the only video game that justifies a purchase despite being in alpha – love to build, so they’ll undoubtedly be ecstatic about this: This lovely diorama of country scenery – slightly marred by the presence of the most disturbing likeness of a pig that I have ever seen – was made by Tumblr blogger Jumbso.

Nintendo 64 PC No Longer Plays Starfox 64 [Casemod]

Nintendo 64 PC No Longer Plays Starfox 64 [Casemod]
Got an old N64 lying around? Well if you have the time, patience and talent, you could turn it into a modern-day PC like modder Polvorito has done. He picked up this old Nintendo 64 at a flea market for about 20 bucks, then gutted it to provide the shell for his new home theater PC.

Microscopic Pac-Man

Microscopic Pac-Man
Earlier this week, I read about a tiny Pac-Man discovered with an electron microscope. But that was just a random scientific anomaly. Turns out there’s a real microscopic Pac-Man out there, and you can actually play it! Developed by Japanes design professor Kotoro “dotimpact” Tanaka, the microscopic Pac-Man[JP] uses a small video projector, combined with the original Pac-Man arcade hardware to allow play of the game through the optics of a microscope.

Traccia Mobile Phone Concept Looks Like a Ponytail Holder

Traccia Mobile Phone Concept Looks Like a Ponytail Holder
Today must be day of the phone concept designs. I mentioned the virtual iPhone concept a bit ago and now I run across this mobile phone concept called the Traccia, designed by Andrea Ponti. This thing looks like a hair accessory my wife might use more than a phone.

IPhone Merges With Palm

IPhone Merges With Palm
I look a good design concept as much as the next guy, but the designer of the iPhone Next Generation concept has balls bigger than an iPad to rip off Steve Jobs’ gadget. Samuel Lee Kwon, watch out for Apple legal ninjas and keep an eye on the mail box for the inevitable cease and desist that is coming your way.

7r0n: TRON-Inspired Watch Needs to be Made

7r0n: TRON-Inspired Watch Needs to be Made
It’s design concept day here on Technabob, and here’s another cool idea which might actually get made. Designed by Scott Galloway, this 7R0N watch concept gets its inspiration from TRON. For starters, Scott’s 7R0N (Seven-R-Zero-N) watch just looks awesome.

Hal 9000 Decal: Turn Your Macbook Into a Murderous Machine
MacBooks already have a distinctive Apple logo, but some smart people are doing some really great decals that will make you pause and wonder if you should finally give them a go. The HAL 9000 decal is pretty amazing.

Tatooine: Jeremy Messersmith’S Music Video Retells Original Trilogy in 2 Amazing Papercrafted Minutes

Tatooine: Jeremy Messersmith’S Music Video Retells Original Trilogy in 2 Amazing Papercrafted Minutes
This amazing papercraft reconstruction of Star Wars was made for Jeremy Messersmith‘s song called Tatooine. It was directed and animated by Eric Power. It’s definitely a good way to end the week! It’s actually a music video for Jeremy’s song, which is also pretty good.

Case-Mate Offers Custom Cases for Your iPhone, Touch, and Blackberry

Case-Mate Offers Custom Cases for Your iPhone, Touch, and Blackberry
I am not a big fan of putting cases on my iPhone. I am generally really careful with the thing and hadn’t dropped my phone in years until a few months back I dropped my 3GS and cracked the screen.

Cherrypal Pops Its Android Tablet Cherry

Cherrypal Pops Its Android Tablet Cherry
The tablet market reminds me of Horshack with everyone and their dog throwing up their hands, laden with tablet running Android and screaming, “Ooh! Ooh! Me! Me!” The latest “me too” tablet to land on the market is the CherryPad that runs Android 2.1

If You Ever See This Twitter Booth, Please Destroy It

If You Ever See This Twitter Booth, Please Destroy It
Good thing it’s just a photoshop of an otherwise real booth, whose purpose I don’t know, but is no doubt decent, necessary, benign. Because if this was an actual twitter booth, it could only have been made from congealed stupidity.

Kinect Doesn’T Get Accessories, It Gets Replicas

Kinect Doesn’T Get Accessories, It Gets Replicas
How about them PS3 Move acccesories? Ain’t they funny? The Kinect won’t stand for that. Its revolutionary hands-free technology must be marred by silly add-ons too! But an accessory won’t do, simply because there is no controller to accessorize, unless you want the Kinect camera to wear hats or have arms and legs.

PS3 Move Controller Gets Jealous of Wii-Mote, Gets Silly Accessories Too

PS3 Move Controller Gets Jealous of Wii-Mote, Gets Silly Accessories Too
The Playstation Move controller has only been out for a couple of weeks now, and we’re already starting to see all sorts of goofy accessories, just like the Nintendo Wii did when it first came out.

Red Nintendo Wii on Its Way (if You Live in Japan)

Red Nintendo Wii on Its Way (if You Live in Japan)
Sick of your plain old boring white or black Wii? Well if you happen to be fortunate enough to live in Japan, you could get shiny new Wii in bright cherry red.

Thrustmaster Hotas Warthog Controller is Straight From the a-10c

Thrustmaster Hotas Warthog Controller is Straight From the a-10c
I have long thought that one of the coolest aircraft flying to day in the military world is the A-10C Warthog. The thing may be a bit ugly, but anytime a designer builds the gun as the main component of an aircraft and then straps the pilot around that gun, I am interested.
