If you ever got a chance to watch the short-lived Caprica, they had a technology just like this. Now, it looks like smart paper could soon be upon us, as the Japanese have come up with some interesting research using paper as a touchscreen.
Here’s further proof that you can build anything out of LEGO. LUGNET member Philo made this awesome disc thrower a couple of years ago, and I think it’s still a fun project for LEGO enthusiasts since optical media is just getting more and more obsolete.
We’ve featured a few Cubeecraft creations before, but if you’re a high-level Crafter and can do more than just cut and fold, the folks at Laboratory 424 have quite the project for you – a Super Mario papercraft magnet board:
This calendar isn’t exactly the most practical thing, since there’s no place to write down your appointments, but that doesn’t make it any less appealing to retro gamers like me.

If you don’t remember the Commodore SX-64, it was the retro computer maker’s first attempt at a portable computer. The beastly box weighed in at a backbreaking 23 pounds. Thankfully, this papercraft version is a little lighter.

Apple’s hyperbolic marketing strategy works most of the time, but I’m sure even Apple fanatics will admit that the Beatles’ iTunes release pre-announcement was too much. Remember that claim? “Today is just another day. That you’ll never forget.”
This video is quite old in Internet time, but now that the Wii, Xbox 360 and the PS3 are all fighting the motion gaming war, it’s only apt to showcase YouTube user blaues01’s motion gaming hack for the Nintendo DS.
If you have your Christmas hopes set on getting a shiny new iPad to play, with you might be in luck if the deal over on Evolyte makes it. Evolyte describes itself as the “superhero baby of Woot and Groupon that never cries.”
Kinect hacker Yankeyan is at it again. Last time, he made a lightsaber with his Kinect. This time, he’s playing Super Mario Bros. – as Mario.

This waffle maker fashioned out of an old typewriter is full of win.
Chris Dimino took an old Smith-Corona Coronamatic typewriter and replaced the keys with a fully-functional waffle iron. I love how the waffles look like keyboards.
I like the holidays, but my in-laws can really piss me off. My mother-in-law really gets to me because she is a dumb-ass. I hope that trait isn’t hereditary because if my wife goes moron all the sudden we are going to have a big problem.
