A Little Bit World: Classic Video Game Characters Make The World Their Stage

A Little Bit World: Classic Video Game Characters Make The World Their Stage
Made by Jonas and Simon Schwarzer, A Little Bit World sees classic video game characters emerge from a question mark block. It’s practically the low-budget version of Pixels by onemoreprod and Patrick Jean, though I wouldn’t call it a rip-off.

Mix Monsters iPod Shuffle Cases Have Their Eye On You

Mix Monsters iPod Shuffle Cases Have Their Eye On You
When gadgets get very small, they get pretty darn cool, but the size can also be a problem for people who tend to lose stuff. This is why these Mix Monsters iPod Shuffle 4G cases from Fred & Friends come into play.

Steampunk Mouse: More Like Evil Mad Scientist Mouse

Steampunk Mouse: More Like Evil Mad Scientist Mouse
The brain inside Peter Balch’s steampunk mouse may be fake – at least that’s what Balch says – but it’s as creepy as the steampunk mouse with sheep skull on it. Also, I can’t figure out how you’re supposed to hold this thing.

New Casio G-SHOCK Always Tells the Same Time as Your Phone

New Casio G-SHOCK Always Tells the Same Time as Your Phone
The new Casio G-SHOCK watch will come with Bluetooth connectivity so that it can adjust time all over the world by connecting with your smartphone to constantly keep its time in sync, including timezone changes. That’s kind of interesting because you won’t have to set your watch back or forth anymore.

Cassette Tape Chair: Sit Man, then WalkMan

Cassette Tape Chair: Sit Man, then WalkMan
Cassette tapes are an all-but-extinct technology, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still put them to use. You could turn them into a lamp, for instance – or how about a chair made from cassettes?

CandyShell Card iPhone Case Helps Empty Your Pockets

CandyShell Card iPhone Case Helps Empty Your Pockets
The only things I like to carry with me when I am out are my iPhone and my wallet. I carry everything in a front pocket so I don’t have to sit on my wallet in the car.

Polygonal Star Wars: Force Geometry

Polygonal Star Wars: Force Geometry
I’ve never imagined polygonal Star Wars characters, except maybe in some wireframe pre-production CGI shots of the new movies, but I have to say that Liam Brazier’s creations do look amazing. These polygonal characters from Star Wars are definitely unique and put a different spin on your favorite villains.

Fancy iPhone Watch Case: Time To Burn Some Money

Fancy iPhone Watch Case: Time To Burn Some Money
While I do appreciate a good iPhone case just like the next person (remember that crazy Griffin Motif case that helped an iPhone 4 survive a 1,000 foot fall?) I honestly can’t understand why people who purchase über-expensive cases for iPhones, knowing full well that if there is a model change, it won’t fit the new one.

Condor PS3 Supercomputer Goes Online for Air Force: Shall We Play a Game?

Condor PS3 Supercomputer Goes Online for Air Force: Shall We Play a Game?
There’s a reason why video game consoles like the Sony PS3 are restricted to some countries. It’s because if you have enough of them, you can build your own supercomputer. The Condor Project is a supercomputer made out of 1,716 PS3 networked together for the US Air Force.

Romulan Ale Energy Drink: Belly-Up to the Space Bar

Romulan Ale Energy Drink: Belly-Up to the Space Bar
Don’t tell me that you’ve never wanted to drink some Romulan Ale. The drink was made popular by Star Trek, and pretty much anyone who’s seen the movies or the shows has wanted to drink some at some point in time.

iPhone 4 Falls 1,000 Feet from Plane and Survives

iPhone 4 Falls 1,000 Feet from Plane and Survives
I’ve heard my share of horror stories of people dropping their iPhone 4 out of their pocket and having the screen shatter on impact. That’s why I was amazed when I read about this iPhone 4 which was accidentally dropped out of an airplane – and survived with nary a scratch.

XGear Smart Cover Enhancer Protects the Naked Backside of Your iPad 2

XGear Smart Cover Enhancer Protects the Naked Backside of Your iPad 2
I just mentioned that cool Miniot wood cover for iPad 2 that looks and works a lot like the official Smart Cover for the iPad 2. If you have the iPad 2 and use the Smart Cover, you have noticed that the thing offers little protection for drops and bumps for most of the iPad.

Kindle Gets Audible Audio Books via WiFi

Kindle Gets Audible Audio Books via WiFi
My wife has a Kindle that she uses all the time. She racks up a hundred bucks or more in charges for new books each month and when she gets tired of reading, she uses the robotic voice on the Kindle to read the books to her.

iMobot Robot Adapts to its Surroundings

iMobot Robot Adapts to its Surroundings
Whether walking, crawling, climbing or rolling, most robots have a single form-factor. Not so with the iMobot, a robotic platform capable of taking on different forms based on the appropriate mode of movement for traversing its environment.

Festo SmartBird Flaps its Wings into the Sky

Festo SmartBird Flaps its Wings into the Sky
Man has been flying for a very long time and early in the development of aircraft, we tired designs that mimicked birds with flapping wings and things never worked out well. The cool part about birds and insects that we still can’t fully recreate in man-made aircraft is the amount of lift and propulsion they can generate with small surface area wings.

Duke Nukem Forever Delayed Again

Duke Nukem Forever Delayed Again
If you have been following the saga of the video game Duke Nukem Forever, it has spanned over a decade. Duke was a very popular character in the early games back in the 90’s, and then a long list of delays and promises unfulfilled relegated the game to the status of vaporware; and it pissed off a lot of fans along the way.
