The 60″ Wearable TV

The 60″ Wearable TV
While wearable TVs are things that are usually seen in science-fiction, Dave Forbes decided to make his own 60″ TV in the form of an LED video coat. It looks pretty fascinating, though it could make a good portion of the population queasy looking at all of this motion while somebody is wearing it.

Harry Potter Maize Maze: Sending Him Off in Style
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll be fully aware that the final Harry Potter movie is coming out this week. Apparently, people are celebrating (and commiserating) this all over the world. Check out what a farmer in the UK decided to do with his corn field.

630 Coffee Stirrers + 1260 Toothpicks + Geometry = Amazingly Cool Art
Got a few boxes of coffee stirrers and some cocktail toothpicks lying around? Well save ’em for stirring some lattes, since I doubt most of us could do anything quite as impressive as this if left to our own devices.

Poor Chopstick Skills? Eat a Bowl of Pandas
Like to eat Asian delicacies, but don’t have a good grip on your chopsticks? Embarrassed when you go to the local Chinese or Japanese restaurant and have to ask for a fork? Well have I got a deal for you.

Joerg Sprave’s Latest Zombie Killing Slingshot Uses iPhones as Ammo

Joerg Sprave’s Latest Zombie Killing Slingshot Uses iPhones as Ammo
I have talked about Joerg Sprave a few times. He makes some of the wildest looking slingshots that flick things like saw blades and more. I have long thought if I was picking a team of experts to survive a zombie Armageddon, Sprave would be my top pick.

Ben Heck Creates Xbox 360 Automatic Disc Changer

Ben Heck Creates Xbox 360 Automatic Disc Changer
When I had more than one person over playing video games as a kid we always ended up in an argument about who would change the video game when we wanted to swap titles. It usually ended up in stalemate with some of my friends and we would all just sit there starting at a game no one wanted to play because we were all too stubborn to get up and change the game.

Awesome Star Wars Art includes DJ Yoduh and Darth Fader
I am a fan of artwork that takes the movies and things from my youth that l liked and twists it a bit to make it into something else. Over on Etsy there is a dude going by the name Harshness that has a bunch of pop art based on some of my favorite childhood flicks.

Mouse Belt Buckles Don’t Double-Click to Open

Mouse Belt Buckles Don’t Double-Click to Open
Soon to be husband-and-wife team Holly and PJ have set up an Etsy shop in order to help pay for their wedding next year. PJ usually makes hemp and leather buckles, but while discarding a box of old computer mice he noticed that they were the same size as the buckle on the belt he was wearing.

Are you still addicted to the hypnotic and trippy Nyan Cat? Well now you can have it dancing around your desktop and hear its nyan-tastic theme music every time you transfer or download a file, thanks to Ben Stone and his custom Nyan Cat progress bar.

TARDIS Socks: No Bigger on the Inside than Out, Still Bigger at the Calf than Ankle

TARDIS Socks: No Bigger on the Inside than Out, Still Bigger at the Calf than Ankle
While I have trouble calling any sock a spin-off sock, that’s what creator and knitter Ellen Botilda calls her TARDIS tribute socks. They were based on another pattern, but slightly altered. Now, all that I have to find is someone who will knit a pair of these for me!

Animated Augmented Reality Tattoo Sings a Little Song

Animated Augmented Reality Tattoo Sings a Little Song
This isn’t just a any old tattoo, but it’s actually an animated augmented reality tattoo, which in my book makes it awesomesauce. However, I still wouldn’t want one on my skin. Would you?

Salt and Pepper Bots for Lazy Condiment Passers

Salt and Pepper Bots for Lazy Condiment Passers
The lines I hate hearing when I’m sitting down at the dining table about to dig in on my meal when I’m particularly famished are: Can you please pass the salt? Can you please sprinkle a little bit of pepper in my soup?

Flashed Face Distortion Effect: Ugly Optical Illusion

Flashed Face Distortion Effect: Ugly Optical Illusion
Sean Murphy was looking at sets of faces for one of his experiments when he observed something really freaky. Skimming fairly rapidly through pictures of two faces side-by-side, Murphy started noticing that some of the people he had pictures of had grotesque and deformed faces.

Gold $4 Keyboard Key: Not My Type

Gold $4 Keyboard Key: Not My Type
If you’re one of the people who like the idea of owning iced up and gemmed gadgets but don’t have enough money to snag one of Stuart Hughes‘ over–the–top pieces, maybe you’d settle for having one of your keyboard’s keys blinged up?

Vol Speaker Combines Speaker and Dial

Vol Speaker Combines Speaker and Dial
This minimal speaker was designed by Hironao Tsuboi for Kent of British American Tobacco. While I have trouble understanding why a tobacco company would need a cool and funky speaker like this, it looks pretty darned good.

SEED Concept: Your Personal Automonous Floating Camera Drone

SEED Concept: Your Personal Automonous Floating Camera Drone
The SEED is an autonomous, mobile camera balloon created to take photos and video of you while you’re on vacation, but I honestly see a lot of Big Brother implications. It also reminds me of the Kinos in Stargate Universe.
