Orange T-Shirt Charges Smartphones with Sound
I don’t know how much power this prototype t-shirt from Orange can generate from sound, but it may well end any energy crisis on the planet. All we need to do is hook this shirt to the grid anywhere near my wife and daughter and the non-stop talking will short something out from excess power.

Logitec Japan Universal Bluetooth Speakers: That’s Logitec without an H!

Real Life Pokémon: Don’t Wanna Catch Any of ‘Em
Characters from video games, comics and cartoons rarely look good in live action or when portrayed realistically, from Wolverine in his classic blue and yellow uniform to Mario in any of his numerous costumes. Animé characters are typically the most outlandish and should almost always remain animated.

New Dutch Coins to Get QR Codes

New Dutch Coins to Get QR Codes
QR codes are slowly popping up pretty much everywhere, as most people carry a smartphone with a camera in it these days, and they can read these codes. Until now, I hadn’t seen any on money yet, but it looks like the Dutch have decided to put some on their newly minted coins.

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Super Mario, Nintendo is teaming up with Converse to release some snazzy-looking limited-edition high- top sneakers that look mighty fine and totally drool-worthy. Especially for the ultimate Super Mario Bros.

Self-Cooling Clothing Cools You Down When You Break a Sweat

Self-Cooling Clothing Cools You Down When You Break a Sweat
The weather on my side of the world has been crazy lately. One minute it’s scorching hot, and the next, it’s so humid that I can literally feel the water vapor hanging in the air condense on my skin.

Tiny Tim Booklight: Luxo, Jr.’s Younger Brother

Tiny Tim Booklight: Luxo, Jr.’s Younger Brother
My very first viewing of the animated short Luxo, Jr. was really the moment that cemented the fact that Pixar would always give it’s animations character and heart like no other studio – even today. I always loved how John Lasseter imbued these bendy desk lamps with so much life.

Go Receipt Racer, Go!

Go Receipt Racer, Go!
Back in the early days of arcade games, I always enjoyed those early top-down racing and skiing games with the jaggy pixelated course that you had to steer through. Now a few 21st century geeks have come up with their own take on the classic arcade racing genre with Receipt Racer.

Zelda Chess Set: A Link to the Board Game

Zelda Chess Set: A Link to the Board Game
Ben Howard made this one of a kind chess set that will surely fill up the heart containers of Zelda fans with glee, featuring characters from various games in the series, including of course Princess Zelda as the good queen, Ganon as the bad king, and not one but two Links as good knights. T

Most of the time, landline phones – remember those? – are still useable even when the electricity goes out. Instructables user art.z shows us how we can make good use of that omnipresent (and free!) power source – by creating a flashlight that taps into the phone line.

TRON Armchair: Coming Soon to Your Living Room
Back in 2010, Cappellini presented the TRON Armchair, designed by Dror Benshetrit. Inspired by the Outlands of TRON: Legacy, only a handful of prototypes were made.

Rocker Switch Array Display Says Hello World.

Rocker Switch Array Display Says Hello World.
This must be one of the largest rocker switch arrays that I’ve ever seen (or is it the only one?). Needless to say that I hope Valentin Ruhry got a volume discount on all those rocker switches used to create his display since he used about 4,750 of them to make it.

Mitsuyuki Ikeda Wants You to Eat His Burger Patties Made from Human Waste
I know the world’s population is increasing by the thousands every second as we speak, and the time will eventually come that the world’s resources will no longer be able to provide for the needs of all the human beings on the planet.
