Dude Gets Stuck in Toilet Trying to Save Mobile Phone
I have had some really shitty days in my time, but one dude in China has given new meaning to the term. As the story goes, the guy was in the crapper, drops his phone down the toilet, and then rams his hand not just into the water, but down the damn poop chute of the toilet.

IPad Gets Official Etch a Sketch HD App
Remember that awesome Etch A Sketch Case that we talked about a few weeks ago that made your iPad look like the toy? I thought at the time what the thing needed was an app made for the iPad that would complete the illusion that the iPad is nothing more than the line art pimping toy from my youth.

Rick’s in Spaaaaaace…..
Recently, Zug pulled a little prank – in outer space. It’s probably not the first prank in space as I bet the astronauts aboard the ISS and other spacecrafts have already pulled some pranks on each other.

Fallout fans will be familiar with this promotional item, as it was originally part of the limited Survival Edition of Fallout 3 a couple of years ago.

Mega Man Sticker: National Blue Bomber Association

Mega Man Sticker: National Blue Bomber Association
Like many Japanese games, Mega Man has so many series that it warrants an intra-mash-up in itself: Original Series vs. Legends vs. X vs. Battle Network vs. Star Force. Mega Man vs. Mega Man, if you will.

Antimov: This Robot Will Self Destruct in 5 Seconds.

Antimov: This Robot Will Self Destruct in 5 Seconds.
Ok, this is my kind of contest. The whole point of Sparkfun Electronics’ Anitmov competition is to create robots which are supposed to complete a trivial task in a highly inefficient way, in the course, destroying themselves.

Inflatable Photo Studio Lets Photogs Shoot Indoors When Outdoors
When I was a kid, my brother and I would make tents out of a sheet and a box fan when our parents wouldn’t let us get out a real tent. All you had to do was put the sheet over the fan and you ended up with a ready-made inflatable tent.

Futurama and the Simpsons Characters: 3 Pixels Each

Futurama and the Simpsons Characters: 3 Pixels Each
While I had to take off my glasses to be able to see the resemblance, once you see it it’s uncanny! It was definitely important to get the colors right on each of these 3 pixels, as that’s not a lot to be able to identify a character.

LEGO Metal Slug: Sports Tank
I’ve seen a lot of awesome things made out of LEGO, but Peer Kreuger’s remote-controlled tank is now my all-time favorite. Even though Kreuger was inspired by the Metal Slug tank, to ‘Metal Grudge’ looks straight out of Vanquish. I love the omnidirectional wheels and that big-ass cannon.
