I like to swim and I have always though SCUBA diving would be cool as long as it was in water shallow enough that sharks couldn’t sneak up on me. I’m not for diving down to the kind of depths in a submarine where the pressure is so great you are one leaky valve from getting a testicle shot off by a billion psi of ice cold ocean water squirting through a crack.
This is exactly why I wanted to be an archeologist as a kid. I wanted to crawl through a recently discovered ancient city. Only in my dreams, the city was packed with gold and all the cherry Pez I could eat.
When I was in grade school, I used to rush home every day after school in order to catch my favorite cartoon called Star Blazers. I loved that show and still get the theme song stuck in my head on occasion.
Ok, I need one of these on my desk. Now. This awesome full-color sandstone Super Mario Bros. sculpture is actually rendered on a 3D printer. Metin Seven of Seven’s Heaven created his Mariorama sculpture using Shapeways’ 3D printing technology.
Here’s a great gift for Rubik’s Cube fans – the officially-licensed Rubik’s Speaker. Fortunately – or unfortunately for hardcore fans – the speaker isn’t puzzling to use. It’s powered via USB and has a 3.5mm jack.
Here’s a replica of the damaged brain chip that was recovered from the T-800 that Sarah Connor crushed in the first Terminator movie. This brain chip “provided the basis for all of the research and development carried out by Cyberdyne Systems”, and ultimate led to Judgment Day.
I have to admit that these lights are kind of cute, especially if you spend a lot of hours in front of a computer and love Super Mario Bros. While I can’t say if they’ll give you an extra life or make you grow bigger, these new green and red mushrooms from Super Mario Bros still look pretty cool.
What makes this watch so interesting is that it shows only the most relevant numbers on your watch face, no others. That was a pretty smart idea, since you can easily tell time with a glance, which should be the main purpose of a watch.
I rather like this PC casemod made from a bunch of LEGO bricks. What’s cool about it is that it really does look to be mostly constructed by the colorful primitive building blocks, and cleverly designed to prevent the computer from overheating.
The first time I ever saw a 3D movie was at a theme park. Each time we go to the beach we end up having to take the kids over to the IMAX theater that is nearby too so we can see something on the giant screen.
I wager that at one point or another we have all played a little bit of air guitar when the mood hit while jamming to a good song on the radio. I know I have seen plenty of folks get down with some air guitar, but I can’t say that I have ever seen anyone get fancy with some air piano.
I use my iPhone all the time in the car, particularly while I sit outside waiting for my kids to come out of school. I have on more than one occasion thought that I need some sort of radio or screen in my car that will let me shoot that video content from Hulu Plus or the web over to a larger screen.
It seems like the Turret will be replacing the Companion Cube as the adorable mascot for Portal. What better way to amp up the charms of the respectful killing machine than by making a plushie? Actually there is a better way – make an interactive, talking turret plushie.
It’s great that more and more gadgets are compatible with USB chargers, but if you don’t have enough ports or outlets you’ll still be stuck with a dead device. Fortunately CableJive, the same company that makes the convenient duaLink USB sync cable, has a solution: the dualCharge and dualCarCharge chargers.
I have a confession to make: I used to be a lazy brusher. As a kid, I didn’t really understand why I had to brush my teeth at least twice a day. My mom would make me brush after meals and I’d do an inward celebratory jig whenever she forgot to remind me.
