Tiny Donkey Kong Arcade Cabinet Even Plays Pac-Man

Tiny Donkey Kong Arcade Cabinet Even Plays Pac-Man
I’ve written about some tiny arcade cabinets before – even a Donkey Kong machine, but never one that was this accurate – and that actually plays. All it needs are tiny Steve Wiebe and Billy Mitchell dolls to go with it and it would be perfect.

Robot Excels at Angry Birds

Robot Excels at Angry Birds
I have a confession to make. I’ve played through just about every Angry Birds level on every Angry Birds game out there. But still, I’ve not been able to get three stars on every level yet.

In Space… No One Can Hear You Fart

In Space… No One Can Hear You Fart
Anyone with kids knows that it can be a challenge to teach them to use the toilet. My daughter always got the sequence wrong, wipe, then flush. She finally got it down. I can only imagine how hard it would be to drop a deuce if you live on the ISS.

The Sophie Concept: An iPhone Case That Doubles As a Polaroid Printer
Will these conceptual wonders never cease? Designer Mac Funamizu has come up with a lot of designs in the past, but his latest called “Sophie” is truly something. What do you think about an iPhone case that also functions as a Polaroid printer?

Awesome Jaguar C-X75 to Have Gas and Electric Power, 800 Horses
Jaguar has announced that it will be building a small limited edition run of the C-X75 supercar. This car turned up as a concept about a year ago with electric motors in each wheel and jet engines.

iTablet Bluetooth Thumb Keyboard & Trackpad Combo

iTablet Bluetooth Thumb Keyboard & Trackpad Combo
While it may look easy to type on a touch-screen, it’s really anything but that. Most likely, you’ll end up typing faster using a device with some kind of tactile response. That’s where the iTablet Thumb Keyboard comes in. I’m not a fan of small keyboards, but in a pinch, they will do the job.

Eclipsion Wall Clock Not for Accurate Types

Eclipsion Wall Clock Not for Accurate Types
I have owned watches over the years that have had no numbers, and I always end up telling people “it’s about 4pm” or whatever because without numbers it’s hard to get an exact time. A new clock for your wall has been unveiled in concept for that looks interesting.

The HipstaCase Makes Your iPhone Look Hip and Retro

The HipstaCase Makes Your iPhone Look Hip and Retro
Fans of the Hipstamatic app and the (virtual) lenses that come with it to make your shots appear retro and classic will not be disappointed by the HipstaCase. You’re already taking photos that look like they were taken decades go, so why not suit up your iPhone to make it look a bit more old classic timeless as well?

Cats of War is Much Better than Lolcatz

Cats of War is Much Better than Lolcatz
With word getting out that a bad-ass dog with bullet-proof armor that urinates laser beams (ok, I made that last part up) was used to help take out Bin Laden, cat lovers around the world have become jealous.

Raspberry Pi Barebones PC: Fits On Your Keychain and Costs Only 25 Bucks!

Raspberry Pi Barebones PC: Fits On Your Keychain and Costs Only 25 Bucks!
The Raspberry Pi PC is about the size of a USB flash drive. It’s an ultra-minimal PC that David Braben hopes to sell for about $25 (USD). Now that’s a nice portable (and affordable) form-factor.

iOS 5 Notifications App Concept: Apple, Just Do Something About This Already

iOS 5 Notifications App Concept: Apple, Just Do Something About This Already
The notifications scheme on the iPhone and other iOS devices is one of the longest-standing, yet unaddressed complaints that users have. The current system is messy, distracting and obtrusive, which is ironic because Apple is all about designing hardware that gets out of the way.

Sith Series Laser: Double the Laser, Double the Danger, Double the Lawsuits

Sith Series Laser: Double the Laser, Double the Danger, Double the Lawsuits
Wicked Lasers nearly got burned by Lucasfilm because one of their lasers looked a lot like a lightsaber. It seems that they got the upper hand in that legal battle, and now they’re tempting fate again with the Sith Series laser, the “world’s first double handed laser”, a device as jaw-dropping as it is impractical.

Star Wars Complete Saga: 9 Discs, 40 Hours of Bonus Content, A Million Disappointed Fans?

Star Wars Complete Saga: 9 Discs, 40 Hours of Bonus Content, A Million Disappointed Fans?
I think it’s safe to say that we’ll see a bundled edition of Star Wars every time a new storage medium is introduced. The one for Blu-ray will finally be released this September, and from a quantity standpoint, the amount of Star Wars you’ll get should be enough to tide the hardest of hardcore fans until the next storage medium is introduced – all six movies and more than 40 hours of bonus content packed in 9 Blu-ray discs.

Live the Green Life With IKEA’s Solar-Powered Table Lamp

Live the Green Life With IKEA’s Solar-Powered Table Lamp
There’s no need to burn the midnight oil (or candle) anymore when you need to get some studying, reading, or work done on a night when your power dies on you. That is, if it was a really sunny day earlier and if you have one of these colorful and simplistic IKEA Solvinden Solar-Powered Table Lamps.

Dead Space 2 Plasma Cutter with LASERS!

Dead Space 2 Plasma Cutter with LASERS!
I have played the PC version of the shooter Dead Space 2 and really like it. It was one of those games that had moments when I jumped when things happened fast just like a scary movie.

Ningen Gakki Turns Random Body Parts Into Not So Random Musical Instruments
Here’s another fun toy from the minds of Japan’s Takara Tomy. The Ningen Gakki [JP] is an interactive electronic game that turns various body parts into musical instruments – sorta.
