Street Fighter + TRON = Nerdgasm

Street Fighter + TRON = Nerdgasm
I know, TRON stuff is so late 2010. But when I saw these awesome Street Fighter x TRON illustrations by Melbourne, Australia graphic artist BossLogic, I had still had to put them up.

Arctic Laser Popcorn: Overkill Exemplified

Arctic Laser Popcorn: Overkill Exemplified
So you’ve got a couple of high-powered Arctic Spyder III blue lasers lying around. You’ve got to do something more impressive than aim them at a PowerPoint slideshow with ’em, right? Actually, if you’re not careful, you might burn a hole through the screen if you try that.

Epic Geek Mashup Uses PC, Kinect and Wii Controls

Epic Geek Mashup Uses PC, Kinect and Wii Controls
When it comes to playing video games, I head for the PC anytime it’s a shooter. I like driving and racing games on consoles, but other genres are PC or GTFO for me. One geek has taken his PC and Call of Duty, and then hacked up a system that uses the Kinect, the Wii Remote and Nunchuk to control the game.

Lighters Hacked into Motorcycles… Seriously

Lighters Hacked into Motorcycles… Seriously
Sometimes a picture really isn’t worth a 1000 words. You will see what I mean after perusing the photos of this sweet hack below. A geek took some disposable lighters, took the things apart, and used the pieces to make tiny motorcycles.

KFA2 NVIDIA GTX 460 WHDI Video Card Goes Wireless

KFA2 NVIDIA GTX 460 WHDI Video Card Goes Wireless
I can understand why people don’t want wires with the stuff that goes to the computer. I have wired stuff because I hate lag and laggy keyboards and mice don’t work well for gaming and other things.

95 Decibel Telephone Ringer Makes Sure Your Calls Will Not Go Unnoticed

95 Decibel Telephone Ringer Makes Sure Your Calls Will Not Go Unnoticed
Don’t you hate missing a call because you didn’t hear the ringer? Usually this problem can be fixed by turning your cell phone’s ringer on. However, some people do still rely on landline phones for the majority of their calls.

Custom Anatomy Statue Puts the Guts in Gutsman

Custom Anatomy Statue Puts the Guts in Gutsman
Obvious pun is obvious, so I’ll stop there and let you look at the thing itself: Kodykoala – who also made the Yoshi Mecha and Zombie Yoshi statues – used a vinyl Gutsman as well as “parts from random robots and things” to make this statue.

Boba Fett Spartan Helmet: This is BOBAAA!!!

Boba Fett Spartan Helmet: This is BOBAAA!!!
King Leonidas and his army of 300 don’t have a lot in common with Boba Fett. The Spartans were patriotic soldiers (HAA-OOH!). Boba was a bounty hunter. The Spartans refused to bow down to a (fictionalized) man who fancied himself a god and paraded around with more jewels than clothes.

One Piece Transponder Snail Voice Recorder: Weirdest Gadget of the Week

One Piece Transponder Snail Voice Recorder: Weirdest Gadget of the Week
For those of you not familiar with One Piece, its a Japanese manga series that’s been around since way back in 1997. It follows the exploits of a boy named Monkey D. Luffy, who gains elastic powers after chowing down on some mystical fruit.

Polaroid iPhone Decal Brings Back the Instant Camera

Polaroid iPhone Decal Brings Back the Instant Camera
Anyone who grew up in the 1970s or 1980s has seen and probably used one of the Polaroid instant cameras with the pics that shoot out the front and develop themselves. The cameras are largely extinct, and the film is scarce.

LEGOLAND Star Wars Upgrade Coming

LEGOLAND Star Wars Upgrade Coming
I have never been to LEGOLAND, but it has to be one of the things geeks need to see before they die. I thought I had a sweet gig getting to sit at home and write about gadgets all day, but these dudes at LEGOLAND California building up a massive Star Wars area all day make me jealous.

For Gastropods About to Rock….

For Gastropods About to Rock….
If our Bikini Bottom pals SpongeBob and his pet snail Gary were to form a band with Plankton and long hair, this is the guitar they would use. OK, technically the thing isn’t a guitar, it’s an electric ukulele.

Fallout 3 Helmet Replica: Better Graphics than the Game

Fallout 3 Helmet Replica: Better Graphics than the Game
I honestly can’t remember the amount of hours that I’ve spent playing Fallout 3. It’s one of those Bethesda Software games that you can play for hundreds of hours, if not more. Naturally, there are Fallout fans everywhere, and Josh Jay created this amazing looking Fallout 3 Brotherhood of Steel helmet replica as a tribute to the game.

Use Winter Air to Cool a Blindingly-Hot PC

Use Winter Air to Cool a Blindingly-Hot PC
Yes we know; gaming PCs can get very hot. There was a time when I had one inside my bedroom and I usually had to turn down the heat when I was playing. Sure, nowadays, you can get liquid-cooled PCs, but an enterprising modder decided to use the cool winter air to get his PC down to manageable temperatures.

Menas Zoom Adds Adjustable Zoom to Magnifying Glass

Menas Zoom Adds Adjustable Zoom to Magnifying Glass
You know what a magnifying glass needs? MORE MAGNIFICATION. Though this doesn’t seem to be like a particularly bad idea, it does seem silly to put zoom on something that is meant for magnifying. Though I must say, there is no part of me that would object if one of these showed up on my doorstep.
