Don’t get me wrong, I love Star Wars IV: A New Hope, but for me, the best Star Wars movie will always be The Empire Strikes Back. Still, I like my vintage Star Wars posters and clocks as much as the next guy.
If you don’t think that duct tape is sufficient for protecting your iPad, you might want to check into this case from the guys at G-Form. Just how well will G-Form’s new Extreme Sleeve protect your iPad from damage?
There are certainly plenty of ways to protect your shiny new iPad 2 from scratches and dings, but wrapping one in duct tape wasn’t on my list of ways to do this. That said, where there’s a will, there’s a way, and there’s now an iPad 2 case made from the sturdy, sticky stuff.
Geek dad Brett King made this custom TRON lightcycle board game for his kids. Just like in the movies, the objective of the game is to smash opponents into the trail that your lightcycle leaves behind.
John Martz teamed up with Koyama Press to create this comprehensive pixel art Star Trek roster, featuring 235 characters from the series. I think Star Trek fan clubs can use this as an intermediate test for new applicants: “For your second test, you must shoot these darts at the characters in the poster whose names have exactly two vowels in them.”
One of the first shooters that I ever played was Doom II. I can remember thinking how the graphics looked really cool at the time – but seeing them now would really make you realize how bad they sucked.
I’m always amazed by all of the crazy things that people have been able to do with the primitive forms in the game Minecraft. Remember the time that Minecrafta2z made a version of Pac-Man in the Minecraft engine?
Hubless wheels aren’t new, but combining those with a belt drive definitely make for a distinctive bike. The hubless bike is supposed to be as compact as possible, without having to fold it or being awkward to ride.
Ralph Lauren just released a water-resistant backpack that has a solar panel in the back to charge-up your gadgets while you are walking around. The Ralph Lauren Solar Backpack is part of the RLX line, made in partnership with O-Range.
All I know about ejector seats and jet aircraft I learned from watching Goose hit the canopy in Top Gun. I can only imagine that pulling the ejector handle at 600 mph during a firefight or mid air crisis would be a very harrowing experience.
Back when I was in college I used to walk by one of the engineering labs all the time on my way to class and see the geeks in there working with oscilloscopes. I always wondered what exactly they were for.
Here’s a fun casemod for fans of off-road vehicles. This PC got its humble beginnings in one of those modern IN WIN cases, but once the modder was done with it, the thing turned into a serious off-road (or is that off-desk) truck.
If you are an old school gamer that was around back when the Atari was the game console to have you will appreciate this app. I really didn’t have any idea that back in the Atari days there were 100 games to be had.
Geeks are an interesting lot. We all want to be the first to get our hands on things no matter if you are a car geek, a game geek, or a gadget geek. Being first is cool, unless the first release of something has big issues, and then things aren’t so cool.
