Big Rigs Over the Road: Best Review of the Worst Game Ever

Big Rigs Over the Road: Best Review of the Worst Game Ever
Anyone who’s ever heard of the PC game Big Rigs Over the Road is aware that is widely held that it’s the worst video game ever made. Yes – it’s worse than Kool-Aid Man and Barbie Horse Adventure combined with E.T.

KinEmote Turns Kinect into Boxee Gesture Remote Control

KinEmote Turns Kinect into Boxee Gesture Remote Control
With all of our video game systems moving to controls that don’t use your standard game pads, and instead use motion and gestures to control games, it’s clear that gesture control is coming to everything. I have an alarm clock that uses gesture control; you can wave your hand over the thing to silence the alarm.

Nosedial Makes Calling From Your iPhone Nose-Friendly

Nosedial Makes Calling From Your iPhone Nose-Friendly
Ever tried using your iPhone with gloves on? It doesn’t work very well. Believe me, I’ve tried. Yes, I also know that there are plenty of special gloves out there, and even ways to convert traditional gloves to work with touchscreens.

Rollei 3D Camera and 3D Digital Photo Frame Bust out of the 2D Realm

Rollei 3D Camera and 3D Digital Photo Frame Bust out of the 2D Realm
3D is all fine and good in my book, but I, like many of you, won’t get into 3D in my home until I can watch without those stupid glasses. I like the idea of being able to take 3D video and 3D pictures too, but again I don’t want to break out my wallet until no glasses are needed and I can actually view the pics off the computer or camera.

Ziiiro Gravity & Mercury Watches: Easy to Read and Look Good

Ziiiro Gravity & Mercury Watches: Easy to Read and Look Good
The one thing that I don’t like that much about those cool looking Tokyoflash watches is that most of them are extremely complicated to read. I don’t want to spend minutes trying to read my watch.

Disney Characters Get TRON-ified

Disney Characters Get TRON-ified
CalArts’ Character Animation students started a TRON meme of their own, rendering Disney characters with the silhouettes and neon outlines popularized by their fellow Disney property.

TalkTorque 2 Robot Guides People at Museums and Creeps Them Out

TalkTorque 2 Robot Guides People at Museums and Creeps Them Out
I admit that robots creep me out. It goes back to watching Saturn 3 as a kid. Even cute Johnny 5 couldn’t cure me of the creepies. This odd robot form Japan called Talk-Torque 2 [JP] falls somewhere in between Johnny 5 and Hector on the creepy scale for me.

Cthulhu Santa Wishes You a Merry Christmas

Cthulhu Santa Wishes You a Merry Christmas
If there’s one thing that Cthulhu probably wouldn’t wish you, it’s Merry Christmas, because just thinking too much about this outer god will drive you slowly insane. In fact, don’t think about or say his name aloud too much either.

The Truth is In This Intersection

The Truth is In This Intersection
I want to believe that aliens live along these roads: Considering X-Files shot its first five seasons in Canada, I wouldn’t be surprised if there actually was a connection between the names of these roads and the classic show.

1982 TRON Holiday Special Unearthed

1982 TRON Holiday Special Unearthed
Well, actually, there was no 1982 TRON Christmas show, but the guys at Funny or Die perfectly captured the feel of those horrible early Eighties holiday specials in this hilarious parody clip.

iPhone 4 Cake Actually had iPhone 4 Inside

iPhone 4 Cake Actually had iPhone 4 Inside
We like our geeky cakes around here and the gang at Gizmodo has some pics of a birthday cake that a geek was served that looked just like an iPhone 4. The birthday boy was Carlos, and the cake looked yummy enough on its own.

Hoodie Mobile Cell Phone Case Will Keep Your Phone Toasty

Hoodie Mobile Cell Phone Case Will Keep Your Phone Toasty
Before we had kids, my wife and I had a Jack Russell Terrier named Gordy. He was a cool dog that could do all sorts of tricks, but he was too smart for his own good.

TRON Guy Not Allowed to See TRON: Legacy in TRON Suit

TRON Guy Not Allowed to See TRON: Legacy in TRON Suit
I bet TRON Guy wet himself in his homemade TRON suit when he heard TRON: Legacy was heading to theaters. TIME Magazine’s website (of all places) is reporting that TRON Guy wasn’t allowed to wear his light-up TRON suit into a movie theater for a screening of the new flick.

Cylon T.P. Dispenser: Bathroomstar Galactica

Cylon T.P. Dispenser: Bathroomstar Galactica
I have no idea what would compel someone to either make or buy this thing, but the sheer absurdity of it made me want to mention it. What you’re looking at, my friends, is what I’m reasonably certain is the first (and last) ever Cylon Centurion toilet paper dispenser.

Merry Quadrocopter Christmas

Merry Quadrocopter Christmas
If I had a Quadrocopter remote-controlled flying aircraft floating around my place, I’m not sure this is the first thing I’d do with it. But it is the holidays, and I guess the joyful Christmas spirit is strong with the guys who programmed their Quadrocopter to play a little festive holiday tune.

Aluratek Bump Speakers go Unwired

Aluratek Bump Speakers go Unwired
Well, I don’t know that much about Aluratek, but their new Bump Speaker line looks kind of interesting. For $50 (USD), you get the AMS01F which is an FM clock radio “boombox” that plays music from SD cards or a line-in jack.
