Little Vader from Super Bowl VW Commercial Unmasked

Little Vader from Super Bowl VW Commercial Unmasked
The Super Bowl has come and gone and the entire event was a bit of opposite day for me. I generally avoid commercials like algebra homework when I watch TV. During the Super Bowl, I actually want to see the commercials as much as the game.

AT-AT Made From Recycled Computer Parts: Blue Screen of Hoth
This awesome-looking AT-AT was created by Sage Werbock. He is an expert welder and blacksmith. Sage put this AT-AT together using scrap parts salvaged from old computers and some sheet metal. I have to say that the result looks pretty impressive.

Steampunk CD Player Ready to Play Industrial Tunes

Steampunk CD Player Ready to Play Industrial Tunes
While this CD player isn’t as hardcore steampunk as the vinyl player we featured a couple of months back, the craftmanship is really great. Steampunker extracted the guts of a plain CD player and speakers and decked them in brass and wood.

Motorized LEGO Tank Shoots Bricks at Your Enemies
This motorized LEGO tank was created by Martijn Hellemans (aka “Dino_Martino”). He hasn’t posted any videos of the thing yet, but this bad-ass build is supposed to be able to fire LEGO bricks at all of your enemies, and even includes laser targeting!

uTorrent Android App Available, Can Transfer Downloads to Mobile Device
Bittorrent’s official uTorrent app is now available for Android devices. I don’t have an Android device, but even I know that it’s not the only torrent manager for the OS. Speaking as an iOS device owner, I’m just amazed by the fact that this app is actually in the Android Market.

Flamethrower Gloves Ready to Burn Down The House
All I’m going to say here is “do not try this at home”… The guys at J&M Special Effects put together a set of DIY flamethrowers that are mounted on his gloves, firing intense, scalding flames from the palms of his hands.

Super Left 4 Dead Bros.: Like Mario, Except With Guns
YouTube user Chubzdoomer is creating a Super Mario Bros. map for Left4Dead, and its not for claustrophobic people. I get that this map is a first person view of a side scrolling game, but the design leaves almost no room for evading enemies.

LEGO Viking Lumber Jacks, Mechs, and Dragons: ‘Nuff Said
We like our LEGO around here, and a video has turned up that uses LEGO to create a heavy metal stop motion video of glorious righteousness. Be sure to imagine that last bit said in the voice of Jack Black for full effect.

Thor’s Electronic Hammer Meant for Kids, Destined for Geek Cosplay
In the realm of super-power gifting, Loki could have come up with something better than a hammer, even if it is a magic hammer. A magic sword, a magic ring, something. A hammer is just plain weird, but hey, whatever.

SwiftKey Tablet for Honeycomb Has a Two-Keyboard Approach
Android smartphones have long benefited from the Swiftkey keyboard app. Now that same convenience will be coming to Honeycomb tablets, and it really looks promising.

Intellivision Cake Has Way Better Graphics Than Atari Cake
I used to think this Atari 2600 cake was my favorite video game cake, but I got bored with the blocky graphics and repetitive games. Just like the real console, this Intellivision cake has much more realistic graphics.

Bonnie Pink Pentax K-r DLSR: WTF?

Bonnie Pink Pentax K-r DLSR: WTF?
Personally, I’d never pay extra money for a special-edition DSLR, no matter who sponsors it – especially a mid-level model like this Pentax. This is a Pentax K-r that comes with a special limited edition, the Bonnie Pink model.
