Pioneer AppRadio Gets Hands on Treatment

Pioneer AppRadio Gets Hands on Treatment
I have been parked in my car on many occasions looking down at the small screen of my iPhone watching Netflix or Hulu. I generally always wish I had a larger screen to watch on. Back in April, I talked a bit about a new radio from Pioneer for your car that has a larger screen for viewing your iPhone apps called AppRadio.

LEGO Duplo Walls: I Want My Whole Place Like This

LEGO Duplo Walls: I Want My Whole Place Like This
While this LEGO Duplo-walled room was originally supposed to be for kids, I can just imagine what you can do with a room like this. Think about it, you could start building stuff right off the walls, and since we all know that you can almost do anything with LEGOs, the sky is the limit.

Trash Amps: for the Treehugging Music Lover

Trash Amps: for the Treehugging Music Lover
Headphones are sometimes called cans, but Trash Amps steals the moniker and takes it quite literally, although you can also call them takeout boxes, because that’s exactly what they are – speakers with recycled cans and Chinese-food takeout boxes for bodies.

Minecraft Tissue Box Covers Pixelate Your Kleenex

Minecraft Tissue Box Covers Pixelate Your Kleenex
Dontcha just love how Minecraft has become so insanely popular over the last year or so? I think it’s because building and playing the game is sort of like working with LEGO bricks. So much of the fascination is how much gameplay and design you can get with the most primitive shapes.

The 75-Dollar X-Wing Soapbox Derby Car: The Force Is Strong in This One

The 75-Dollar X-Wing Soapbox Derby Car: The Force Is Strong in This One
When I saw this amazing X-Wing soapbox derby car, I was really surprised that it can be made for around 75 bucks. You’d expect something like this to cost at least $100. Then again, when we were younger, we didn’t have detailed instructions via Instructables to help us out.

Minecraft Universe: Dig This Music Video

Minecraft Universe: Dig This Music Video
I’m not sure if this is the first music video to be made in Minecraft, but it’s pretty awesome nonetheless. It’s called Minecraft Universe, and it shows a Minecraft character’s dream. The song and the animation were both made by Eric Fullerton.

Please Press Start: Pause to Admire Videogame Start Screens

Please Press Start: Pause to Admire Videogame Start Screens
Designing the start screen for a video game must be quite a task: it has to be enticing and attractive, like the game’s box art if you will, and it should also convey the spirit or theme of the game, like a well-made trailer.

Space Invader Chair Concept Needs to Be Real

Space Invader Chair Concept Needs to Be Real
I was floored when I saw this Space Invader chair. It comes in a nice array of colors and looks pretty comfortable on top of looking fantastically retro. Sure, it’s not a Space Invaders love seat, but then again, having two of these colorful invaders in your pad would make it look even awesomer.

Tactical Sammich: Because Fighting Zombie Hoards Builds up an Appetite
With the CDC recently coming out with guidelines for your own zombie apocalypse survival kit, I think you all appreciate my writings on how to be prepared for the inevitable at this point. It’s easy to focus on critical things like not getting your ass eaten off by the undead and how to protect your collection of web porn post-apocalypse, but you also need to focus on other necessities.

Turn Your iPhone into a Retro Calculator

Turn Your iPhone into a Retro Calculator
Here’s a fun way to fool your friends into thinking you’re still living in the 1970s by turning your shiny new iPhone 4 into a classic digital calculator from days gone by. This case snaps onto the back of your iPhone 4, and really does look just like one of those old Casio VFD calculators with the blue/green displays.

Incredible Fountain Made from Fabric and Water

Incredible Fountain Made from Fabric and Water
I missed this cool display when it first turned up back in Japan in 2009, but it’s cool enough that I thought it was worth a mention regardless. Basically, what you’re looking at here is a unique sign that creates words using perfect beads of water.

OMG! Run! A Tiger is Loose! Oh wait… Nevermind

OMG! Run! A Tiger is Loose! Oh wait… Nevermind
I want to start this off by saying, BWAHAHAHAHA. As the story here goes, the police in Hampshire over in the UK were called by a concerned citizen with a startling report. A white tiger had apparently been spotted hiding in a field near a local golf course eyeing a quick bite of golfer for lunch.

Duke Nukem Forever Goes Gold, Hell Freezes Over

Duke Nukem Forever Goes Gold, Hell Freezes Over
I have been waiting since 1997 for a new Duke Nukem game and I know that I am not the only one waiting. The last time we talked about the new Duke Nukem Forever game it had been delayed until June.
