Steampunk Robocop Sculpture: Your Move, Creep!

Steampunk Robocop Sculpture: Your Move, Creep!
Etsy sculptor Kreatworks is back with another monstrous metal artifact. This time, it looks like Robocop is ready to invade the Victorian era. The last time we mentioned his work, he had built a 1000-pound Jack Sparrow sculpture.

Brando Pac-Man Ghost Lamps: But Where are Pinky, Inky and Clyde?

Brando Pac-Man Ghost Lamps: But Where are Pinky, Inky and Clyde?
While I doubt that Brando asked to license these from Namco, they’re certainly fun lamps for your work area. These USB Light-Sensitive Ghost Lamp’s light up like a Christmas tree whenever it senses that you need more light, all the while looking vaguely like the ghosts from Pac-Man.

Thrustmaster Debuts Ferrari and Microsoft Licensed Xbox 360 Racing Wheel

Thrustmaster Debuts Ferrari and Microsoft Licensed Xbox 360 Racing Wheel
There are tons of racing wheels out there for PS3 racing games and some of them have Force Feedback tech inside to make them more realistic. There are racing wheels for the Xbox 360 as well, but many of them just aren’t that good.

Winning Solitaire Sculpture is Winning

Winning Solitaire Sculpture is Winning
One of the first games I got hooked to on the PC was Solitaire. Our computer then ran on Windows ’95, with a wonderful CRT monitor that cost more than laptops do these days. I would try to finish the game as quickly as possible, and gaze proudly at the screen when the cards would go berserk and flying all over the screen when I won the game.

Ultimate Party Animal Costume Really Makes You Look Like an Animal

Ultimate Party Animal Costume Really Makes You Look Like an Animal
A woman (who hates it when her significant goes drinking or partying) must have been behind the Ultimate Party Animal Costume because aside from the great attention to detail (you get more than just a plain old printed shirt here), there’s also a drunken monkey mask included in the set.

Mirror TARDIS Reflects Space and Time

Mirror TARDIS Reflects Space and Time
While most of us think of Doctor Who’s TARDIS as a big, blue police box on the outside, I have to say I rather like this reinterpretation of the time and space travel device using mirrors.

DIY Tacit Haptic Glove: Now You Can Be Like Daredevil

DIY Tacit Haptic Glove: Now You Can Be Like Daredevil
Being visually impaired or blind isn’t something easy to deal with, but hopefully with future tech like this haptic glove, it will get easier. While it doesn’t replace a lost sense, it will help out trying to get around obstacles.

Gemini-Scout Robot: Miner 2049er

Gemini-Scout Robot: Miner 2049er
It’s one thing to have people and dogs helping out in search-and-rescue operations, but it’s really interesting when robots start doing even better than your two- or four-legged friends, thanks to some of their sensors and other features.

Creative Outlets

Creative Outlets
The household outlet. It’s about the most mundane looking thing in your home. But it doesn’t have to be. Thanks to these fun stickers, your outlets can finally have some personality.

Researchers Implant Glowing Sensor to Detect Blood Sugar in Mouse

Researchers Implant Glowing Sensor to Detect Blood Sugar in Mouse
First off, no that isn’t some sort of deformed penis with the world’s tiniest testicles in the photo below. Get your mind out of the gutter. It’s a bald mouse that a team of researchers from Institute of Industrial Science at the University of Tokyo are using as a test rodent for a cool new sensor that may someday help make monitoring blood sugar less painful for diabetics.

Squirt Umbrellas Collect Rain for Water Gun Chaos

Squirt Umbrellas Collect Rain for Water Gun Chaos
You probably never thought that you’d go back to playing in the rain again, now that you’re an adult. Designer Alex Woolley, however, has other plans. Fun plans.

Print A Forest: 100 Documents = 1 Tree

Print A Forest: 100 Documents = 1 Tree
A lot of offices are going paperless to show that they’re trying to be more green (the good, environmental kind) and eco-friendly. However, there are still many instances where physical copies of documents are still required.

Han Solo Carbonite Business Card Case: Perfect if You Work in Cryogenics

Han Solo Carbonite Business Card Case: Perfect if You Work in Cryogenics
If I could freeze whatever I wanted in carbonite, I’d do it, just because it would look cool. Sure, it might be unpleasant for the freezing victim, but Han Solo didn’t seem any worse for wear between Episode V and Episode VI.

LEGO Milling Machine Carves Floral Foam into 3D Shapes

LEGO Milling Machine Carves Floral Foam into 3D Shapes
I have seen all sorts of stuff made from LEGO, and much of it is really cool. I particularly like it when someone builds mechanical things out of LEGO that actually do something like the dude that made the LEGO shirt folding robot.

Microsoft Shows Off Patty, the Surface Testing Robot

Microsoft Shows Off Patty, the Surface Testing Robot
I have long though that it would be awesome to have my own Microsoft Surface 2.0 table in my home. What I have never really thought about was how Microsoft tests the Surface 2.0 device to be sure that it will stand up to the test of time and lots of fingers.

Russia’s Orbital Technologies Wants to Put Space Hotel into Orbit by 2016

Russia’s Orbital Technologies Wants to Put Space Hotel into Orbit by 2016
We have heard about space hotels before and so far, none of them have come to be. Back in 2009, we talked about one space hotel that was supposed to launch in 2012 but never got off the ground.
