I like to find strange things that are made from LEGO and when those strange things actually serve a purpose its even cooler. I ran across this LEGO letterpress like those they used for printing lots of letters and flyers back in the old days.
I am not a card person. I rarely read them if you send them to me and if you don’t send them to me I won’t think twice about it. There are some people who are card people though and if you are the sort of card person that likes to send them, you need to get some of these awesome Mechanicards to give out.
Not content to just sit on a couch and play their Formula One racing game with, say, a force-feedback wheel, these guys put together their own homebrew motion sim.
From the looks of the video clip below, they rigged up some servos and hydraulics and tied them together to respond to the movements of the steering wheel.
Next time you see someone wearing a bunch of Flair on their suspenders, you might want to double-check to make sure it’s not one of these smiley face badges, which doubles as a spy cam.
Beneath its happy yellow exterior, the Smile-DVR smiley face button conceals a 720×480 resolution video camera.
Gamers are some of the geekiest computer users you will find. These guys are betting the can get gamers to upgrade a perfectly good mouse just to get a new one that has artwork from their favorite game.
I am sure that we have all been out and about at one time or another and ran across someone that had to ride one of those scooters to get around for some reason. Those things can be painfully slow when you are walking behind one trying to shop.
While I’m all for interesting iPad docks, this most recent one by SMK Link makes me wonder why anyone would buy it. True, it holds your iPad firmly, but it seems kind of silly to me to add on all that bulk to make it look sort of like a miniature iMac.
The $100 PadDock 10 places your iPad into a stand that adds charging, syncing, and a pair of speakers for listening to your music or movies.
It also lets you rotate the iPad to portrait or landscape modes, although it looks a little lop-sided when in portrait mode.
Frankly, there are a bunch of different stands that will do the job well already, but I suppose if you want to turn your iPad into a mini desktop computer, the PadDock 10 is worth a look.
I’ve always been mesmerized by the crystalline structures of Superman’s Fortress of Solitude, especially in the original movie. It looked amazing, and now I’m amazed to find out that there is actually something that looks like it in the real world.
Check out the amazing Cueva de los Cristales (Cave of Crystals) in Naica, Mexico.
I’d bet that many other gamers out there who grew up in the 80’s got their first taste of gaming just as I did with Pac-Man in the old school arcade. That was the first video game I ever played in an arcade, and it has a special place in my gaming heart.
Just like humans, singing is a (synthesized) talent among robots. Some have it, and some don’t. AIST’s HRP-4C, a relative of the HRP-4 humanoid robot, was born to sing like a human being. An in-house developed software called VocalListener is responsible for synthesizing a natural singing voice.
Preserve your likeness with Paul Pape’s Custom Carbonites. Just send a picture and it will be turned into a 4.25″ high statuette. The statuette isn’t actually made of carbonite though, but a mixture of plastic and Super Sculpey.

These waterproof stickers are are designed for outdoor use and perfect for application on the side of your car, or any smooth surface for that matter.
Designed for the European market, the new Toyota iQ Disco is perfect for impromptu dance parties when you’re stuck in traffic.
The shiny, sparkly car has been outfitted with with mirrored plates strategically placed along its surface.
Generally, when I think of geeky clothing I think of guys and stuff like the TRON replica motorcycle suit. Apparently, there is a market for geeky gear for the ladies too, and Disney is all up on it with some new TRON items.
