RC Car Hacked With Kinect or iPad Controls

RC Car Hacked With Kinect or iPad Controls
I know that there are a lot of geeks out there that like remote-controlled cars. I also know that there are a lot of folks that would like a R/C car with controls via the Kinect or the iPad.

ZShock Diamond-Encrusted LunaTik iPod Nano Watch for Wealthy Geeks

ZShock Diamond-Encrusted LunaTik iPod Nano Watch for Wealthy Geeks
We have seen plenty of watchbands to turn your iPod nano into a wrist watch that you can wear around to show off your geekiness. Most of them are made from silicone like the ones you can pick up at Best Buy from iWatch.

LEGO Ship-in-a-Bottle: See How It’s Done

LEGO Ship-in-a-Bottle: See How It’s Done
We had a ship-in-a-bottle when I was a kid and it was really cool. I always wondered how exactly they got the thing inside the bottle. I always suspected they cut the bottom off the bottle, then stuck the ship in and glued the bottom back on.

Stay Puft Caffeinated Marshmallow Giveaway

Stay Puft Caffeinated Marshmallow Giveaway
I’ve personally had to go cold-turkey on caffeine, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get amped up with some of these Stay Puft Marshmallows, loaded with caffeine. And thanks to the guys over at 80stees, you have a chance to win a box for yourself.

Augment Reality T-Shirt: Wearable 3DS AR Card

Augment Reality T-Shirt: Wearable 3DS AR Card
This should have been a pre-order bonus for the Nintendo 3DS. In case you didn’t know by now, there’s really nothing on the bundled AR cards that makes them special except for this soon to be iconic graphic printed on them, which means this shirt – and anything else you can put the drawing on – works as an AR card as well.

iDuck Bath Speaker: Rubber Duckie, You’re the One

iDuck Bath Speaker: Rubber Duckie, You’re the One
I’m a shower kind of guy, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t understand the need for some entertainment if you’re taking a soak after a long day at work. I like the fact that this little thing gets the job done without spending hundred of dollars on speakers and a system for your bathroom.

Geeky Growth Chart: Taller Than Yoda, You Are

Geeky Growth Chart: Taller Than Yoda, You Are
A loving father made this growth chart for his daughter’s 7th birthday using Sci-Fi characters (plus Frodo) as markers, starting with tribbles and ending with Darth Vader. Should’ve thrown in a Gundam there dad. You never know!

Cross-Stitched Characters: From Star Wars to The Justice League

Cross-Stitched Characters: From Star Wars to The Justice League
I’ve never cross-stitched in my life, but these cross-stitch patterns looks pretty amazing since they featured pixelated pop culture characters, ranging from The Justice League to Star Wars. WeeLittleStitches also includes the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Ghosbusters, and more.

TDK Sound Cube: It’s Hip to Be Square

TDK Sound Cube: It’s Hip to Be Square
TDK isn’t exactly a brand that’s made its mark on the U.S. tech scene since back in the cassette tape days, but with their recent, awesome retro boombox, and now this cool portable stereo, they’re definitely making a comeback.

Super NES Hacked Into Super Classic Video Game Console

Super NES Hacked Into Super Classic Video Game Console
Up until now the SNES mods we’ve featured involved stuffing PC guts inside the case. Instructables member vigothecarpathian also did the same to an old SNES, but he didn’t stop there – he also added several emulators and games to his console-turned-PC, so now he can play not just SNES but NES, N64, NEO GEO, MAME, Game Boy Advance, C64, Genesis games and more from just one console.

The Unboxing Video to End All (Bad) Unboxing Videos

The Unboxing Video to End All (Bad) Unboxing Videos
Ideally, unboxing videos are great ways of sharing the excitement of inspecting a new gadget, tool or toy, but some people tend to focus on the act of unboxing and on the little details instead of the object itself.

Black Dice LED Guru Watches Light Up Your Wrist

Black Dice LED Guru Watches Light Up Your Wrist
The Neon LED Guru watch reminds me of some of the better Spoon watches (S.A.M. and S.A.M. 2) that Seiko released years ago, before there were many different kinds of cool Japanese watches available. But unlike Tokyoflash’s watches, you don’t need to decipher them to tell the time.

Ziggybox: Cigarette-Controlled Synthesizer Makes Smokin’ Sounds

Ziggybox: Cigarette-Controlled Synthesizer Makes Smokin’ Sounds
The image below might look to you like some cigarettes lounging around in couple of ashtrays, but there’s more to this scene than meets the eye. Take another look, and you’ll see a cable leading from the table to a laptop, and you’ll realize that it’s actually a controller for a synthesizer.

Box Stories: Miniature Video Game Vistas

Box Stories: Miniature Video Game Vistas
These amazing little diorama boxes tell stories. Not all of them are video game related, but my favorite ones include a scene from Super Mario Bros and one from Tetris. Gatz’s Box Stories are pretty cool once you check out all of the details that he’s included in his scenes.

Sony Retro Radio: Woody and His One-Trick Pony

Sony Retro Radio: Woody and His One-Trick Pony
I stopped listening to radio when I was actually a radio DJ and honestly, I’ve never gone back to listening radio. It helps that I no longer have a car, but I do like these new retro boomboxes and radios that we’ve been seeing.

Circuit Board Necktie: Surprised it’s Not a Clip-On

Circuit Board Necktie: Surprised it’s Not a Clip-On
I can think of few other ways to wave your geek flag as wildly at work than to wear one of these ties that looks just like a circuit board.
