USS Eurisko: The Ultimate Star Trek Casemod
Whether you’re a Trekkie, a Trekker, or just a computer geek, you’re going to be impressed by this casemod, based on a fictitious starship based on the USS Voyager. Actually, it’s not really a casemod – the Intrepid Mark II Class USS Eurisko is a complete scratch-built PC.

Atari ST2 Retro Computer Sings the Blues

Atari ST2 Retro Computer Sings the Blues
I’m totally dating myself, but back in the day, I owned an Atari 520ST computer. Under the hood of this powerhouse of its time was the same processor you’d find in the more expensive early Macintosh computers, along with the unique ability to control musical instruments via MIDI, and advanced full color graphics.

Vodafone 18-Wheeler Charges Smartphones

Vodafone 18-Wheeler Charges Smartphones
Any wireless carrier knows that the money is made not in the voice minutes, but in the charges for data use, texts and so on. That means that the longer a device can stay charged up and working when the user is away from home, the more data the user will consume and the more the carrier can charge.

Wood Neck Tie Perfect for Lumberjacks in Business Suits

Wood Neck Tie Perfect for Lumberjacks in Business Suits
I hate wearing a necktie. I only have to wear one once every few years for some sort of special occasion like a wedding or something similar, and that is too much. I wear a tie for the absolute shortest amount of time possible.

Dude Builds Airplane in Basement, Tears House Apart to Get it Out

Dude Builds Airplane in Basement, Tears House Apart to Get it Out
I have always wanted to learn to fly an airplane. The thing that has kept me from it is that the airplanes are so expensive to purchase and maintain. You can buy kits to build an airplane of your own, but even those can run tens of thousands of dollars or more.

Cadence 4-Bit Wristwatch for Subtle Geeks

Cadence 4-Bit Wristwatch for Subtle Geeks
Geeky watches are a staple around here. We like them even if we don’t wear them since we all have pockets stuffed with smartphones and tablets these days. If you are the watch-wearing sort though, you might like this new watch from Cadence that has the style geeks crave.

Real Robotech Cyclone Motorcycle: 3 Years in the Making, Still Awesome

Real Robotech Cyclone Motorcycle: 3 Years in the Making, Still Awesome
A few Japanese dudes decided to spend three years working on this project in their spare time. The end result is a great-looking replica of the famed Robotech Cyclone motorcycle. I have to say that it looks stellar and reminds me a lot of the series.

SoundJaw Amplifier for iPad: Tiny Add-on, Big Difference

SoundJaw Amplifier for iPad: Tiny Add-on, Big Difference
There are many things to like about Apple’s iPad, but its rear-facing speaker isn’t one of them. I’m not talking about how they’re weak and tinny since most mobile devices have below average speakers anyway. It’s that the sound is directed away from the user’s ears.

Game & Watch Boy: Game Boy Camcorder Mod

Game & Watch Boy: Game Boy Camcorder Mod
Released in 1998, the Game Boy Camera turned Nintendo’s classic handheld into a digital camera. It shot 128 x 112 black and white images, which could then be printed via – what else – the Game Boy Printer.

LEGO Minifig Jack Sparrow USB Drive: Arrr, Why is it So Expensive?

LEGO Minifig Jack Sparrow USB Drive: Arrr, Why is it So Expensive?
While I haven’t had time to watch the most recent Pirates movie, there are still many people who love Johnny Depp’s drunken Jack Sparrow character. This this little handmade Jack Sparrow USB drive is perfect for fans of the drunken rogue pirate.

1960s Walking Truck: The First AT-AT?

1960s Walking Truck: The First AT-AT?
I always wondered how practical a giant manned walking robot like the AT-ATs in The Empire Strikes Back would really be. Well a long, long time ago, at a General Electric factory far, far away, it turns out an actual quadruped manned robot was in development.

BioShock Action Figures: Rapture, Be Pure

BioShock Action Figures: Rapture, Be Pure
BioShock fans, get ready to bust out your wallets so you can cover your desktop with a whole bunch of cool action figures. While I’ve always been enamored of Big Daddy Bouncer, I have a hard time deciding which of the other toys I need to get my grubby little mitts on. In addition to Bouncer, the latest action figure collection includes Big Daddy Rosie and Brute, Crawler and Ladysmith Splicer figures.

Rabito Case Makes Your iPhone Look Like a Deranged Easter Bunny

Rabito Case Makes Your iPhone Look Like a Deranged Easter Bunny
I dare you to buy one of these iPhone cases and whip it out during a business meeting to take a call. I kid you not – the Rabito iPhone 4 Case has big bunny ears and a fluffy cotton tail. It’s sort of like that scene in A Christmas Story where Ralphie has to put on the outfit that Aunt Clara made for him, except your iPhone is Ralphie and Rabito is its aunt that labors under the delusion that your iPhone 4 is not only perpetually four years-old, but that it’s also a girl. While the rabbit ears do nothing to improve AT&T’s reception, at least the fluffy tail can be used as stand, a place for stowing your headset cord, and a screen cleaner.

Behold… The Beeramid

Behold… The Beeramid
I am not a beer drinker, but my family is packed with pro-beer connoisseurs. These are the guys that know the beer delivery guy by name and get gifts from Budweiser at Christmas. The only way you will lure some of these people into a museum is if you gave free beer away.

Leica V-Lux 30 is Affordable (for a Leica)

Leica V-Lux 30 is Affordable (for a Leica)
Generally, when I write about Leica digital cameras, it’s to mock the things for the crazy high prices as much as to talk about the cool design and performance of the cameras. Leica has a new digital camera that it is showing off today that lacks some of that cool retro style that I like in the expensive offerings and makes up for that somewhere that matters most with many of us – price.
