Jetty the Duct-cleaning Robot Cleans with Dry Ice

Jetty the Duct-cleaning Robot Cleans with Dry Ice
Criminals and special ops guys will now have something new to tangle with in ventilation ducts. Jetty, the duct-cleaning robot. And though this bot looks and acts harmless, it would be pretty scary running into it inside of a ventilation duct, because it looks like something you’d find in the walls inside of a game like Dead Space.

Angry Birds Rock Out!

Angry Birds Rock Out!
Those Angry Birds may be angry, but their sticky sweet theme song is anything but reflective of the aggressive avians. Perhaps its time for the Angry Birds theme song to get an edgier makeover.

Banknotes Pixel Art: Pictures Worth a Thousand Bits

Banknotes Pixel Art: Pictures Worth a Thousand Bits
You’ve probably heard of the controversial Bitcoin, a digitally generated peer-to-peer currency. Some people think it’s a great idea, while some think it’s inherently worthless and is doomed to fail. All I know is that these pixel art banknotes are a great fit for Bitcoin.

Urban Pac-Man: Great Animation, Bad Gameplay Part 2

Urban Pac-Man: Great Animation, Bad Gameplay Part 2
If you were disappointed with Stop Motion Mario’s gameplay, you’ll be even more frustrated with Urban Pac-Man. First off, the video makes no sense. Then again, it’s not like Pac-Man had an award-winning story, so I guess the video is faithful in that way.

Space Invader Alarm Clock Shuffles from Side to Side, Dares You to Shoot
Sometimes when I hear sounds from old games I get nostalgic. Space Invaders was a good one. All of that pew pew pew as the aliens march from side to side, striving to get closer to our planet.

Pocket Chainsaw Makes You an Instant Lumberjack

Pocket Chainsaw Makes You an Instant Lumberjack
You know how it is, sometimes you are just walking through the forest and you get the sudden urge to chop down a tree, but sadly you didn’t bring a saw with you. Well, now you can carry one with you at all times, in a little tin.

After their C-3PO and R2-D2 swimsuits, Black Milk has is showing off this Nintendo Game Boy swimsuit, for all you retro gaming fans. It also joins the ranks of the Pac-Man swimsuit that we saw last month.

iWrench iPhone Stand Wrenches Your Phone Upright

iWrench iPhone Stand Wrenches Your Phone Upright
Now that you’ve cleared up your iPhone’s pipes with the iPlunge, it’s time to do a bit of tweaking with the iWrench. If your old iPlunge iPhone stand is already broken or stuck in some iToilet somewhere, then it’s time to replace with something that continues the plumbing theme it drew upon with this stand right here.

Giant Gundam in Pieces, World Comes to an End

Giant Gundam in Pieces, World Comes to an End
Japan’s Giant Gundam sculpture was one of my favorite man-made since I started writing this here site. So when I stumbled onto these images and video footage of the recently-dismantled Gundam statue, I wept. Okay, so I had just been cutting onions, but it still made me sad.

Ice Cream Robot Made Sundaes in Japan (and I Missed Out!)

Ice Cream Robot Made Sundaes in Japan (and I Missed Out!)
I love my home country of the good old U.S. of A., but sometimes it seems as if Japan seems to get all the good stuff before we do. For instance, I can’t walk down the street in my city and find myself a robot to serve me ice cream.

Battlefield 3 for PC Makes You Leave Games to Change Servers

Battlefield 3 for PC Makes You Leave Games to Change Servers
It seems like game makers are making some very questionable decisions with their games lately. First there was the whole Diablo III thing that left us scratching our heads, and now we have some disappointing news about Battlefield 3.

13-Year-Old Boy Wonder Figures Out How to Increase Solar Panel Efficiency by 50%?
Let's see. When I was thirteen, I cared about getting good grades, obsessed over whether I should grow my hair out or get a boy cut, and surfed the web with prepaid Internet cards (yes, I used to do that, and it feels like ages ago. Which it sort of really is.)

Pokémon Minecraft Mod: Gotta Craft ‘Em All

Pokémon Minecraft Mod: Gotta Craft ‘Em All
Seagoingmanatee and Pwootage want to be the very best Minecraft modders, like no one ever was. The two – along with their growing team – are hard at work with Pokémob, a mod that will bring the world of the original Pokémon – including the gyms, towns, the 151 monsters and even gameplay – into Minecraft.

Super Mario Bros. Stop Motion: Great Animation, Bad Gameplay

Super Mario Bros. Stop Motion: Great Animation, Bad Gameplay
World 1-1 in Super Mario Bros. has to be the most recognizable starting level in video game history. It’s a great level too, from a gameplay standpoint.
