XCM XFPS Commando PRO Keyboard and Mouse for Serious Console FPS Fragfests
While most of us have managed to make the adjustment from keyboard and mouse to dual-analog joysticks to play FPSes on our consoles, there’s still nothing quite as accurate the keyboard/mouse combo. This new system from XCM hopes to even improve upon that.

Olasonic Egg Speakers Would Go Over Well on Ork
When I was really small, my favorite show was Mork and Mindy. I once almost drowned trying to drink milk upside down on the couch. Looking back, it was a very weird show. I do recall that Mork was hatched from an egg, and his spaceship looked like an egg too.

I Wish These Special Edition Transformers Razer DeathAdder Computer Mice Could Transform
I’m a huge fan of the Transformers movie franchise. Truth be told, I actually had to be dragged by my sister to the screening of the first movie. I probably said something to this effect then: “I don’t want to see a movie with robots that start out as cars with a leader named Optimus Prime.”

Sony HDR-PJ50V Camcorder: Projector on Board
I haven’t seen the use for a dedicated camcorder in a while, but this latest HD Handycam from Sony actually sports a built-in 60-inch projector into the back of its LCD, making it interesting for people wanting to share what they record immediately. The Sony Handycam HDR-PJ50V isn’t the first camera to have a built-in projector, that was 2009’s Nikon Coolpix S1000PJ.

On a Dark Pac-Man Highway, Blue Ghosts in My Hair
David Lynch and Pac-Man – they go together well, like, um, Pac-Man and David Lynch. At least that’s the impression I get from this short and unusual clip called “Pac-Man Highway”.

Elecom ToyBrick USB Hubs Stack Like LEGOs
These USB hubs are very similar to the ones we featured a couple of years ago – they’re also colorful, stackable, they also have four ports, and they’re also made by a company that is not LEGO.

Drawing Electronic Circuits with Pen and Ink

Drawing Electronic Circuits with Pen and Ink
Have you ever thought about creating electrical circuits with a pen? Apparently some engineers have, and came up with this prototype. These electric circuits were drawn using a silver-inked rollerball pen. The circuits can be drawn directly on paper, wood, and other surfaces.

Zelda Triforce Coasters: For a Drink to the Past (or Present, or Future)

Zelda Triforce Coasters: For a Drink to the Past (or Present, or Future)
Do you know what that fourth triangle in the Triforce symbol stands for? That upside-down one? It stands for what you need when you’ve run out of strength, when you need to forget moments when you showed your lack of wisdom, and of course the times when you need courage.

Now there’s another Chinese person who’s going to extremes just to get Apple’s sought-after technology, but this time, it’s a girl and she’s giving up something that’s supposed to mean something: her virginity.

Tsunami Escape Capsule Looks Like a Giant Hamster Ball for People
A long time ago, I had a hamster that would run around the house in one of those little clear balls. I also had a Jack Russell Terrier that hated that hamster. The dog would wait until no one was watching and then smack that ball around hard enough to stick that poor hamster to the side of the ball as it rolled away.

Hang on, I Got a Hair in My Eye(glasses)
I find it amazing that designers and visionaries in the industry are so abreast not only with fashion trends, but also with the shifting attitudes of consumers.

Coral Tools Multi Tool Even Keeps Hammer from Meeting Fingers
