Giant Circuit Board Dragonfly: Be Glad This Thing Doesn’t Fly

Giant Circuit Board Dragonfly: Be Glad This Thing Doesn’t Fly
I think I’ve mentioned this before – I’m not really crazy about insects. But for some reason, dragonflies have never really bothered me. They’re big, buzzy and clumsy, but they can’t do any harm, so maybe that’s why I don’t mind them.

Joerg Sprave Shows off Finished Crossbow Slingshot and New Design
Slingshot-obsessed madman Joerg Sprave is back, and this time around he is showing off the finished product of that crossbow slingshot that we saw a while back. Along with that crossbow design, he is also showing off a smaller handheld slingshot that uses the same roller system that the crossbow uses.

HTC Sensation Gets Twice the Run Time with Mugen Power Battery

HTC Sensation Gets Twice the Run Time with Mugen Power Battery
I recently changed from an iPhone over to an Android smartphone. I found pretty quickly that the short battery life that I got playing games isn’t only a problem with the iPhone; my Android smartphone has that problem as well.

iTree iPhone and iPod Dock: For Wealthy Ewoks
Say you live in the forests of Endor. You are among the few Ewoks that own an iPod or iPhone for some reason. Living off the land as you do, where are you going to dock it?

Panasonic’s HOSPI-Rimo Assistance Robot Wants to Help, Not Hurt, Humans

Panasonic’s HOSPI-Rimo Assistance Robot Wants to Help, Not Hurt, Humans
Panasonic has announced a new communication assistance robot called HOSPI-Rimo. Don’t worry, he quite literally isn’t armed. That means that it should be harder for this guy to kill you either – intentionally or by accident.

Android MegaPad Concept: a Window to Future iMacs?

Android MegaPad Concept: a Window to Future iMacs?
With Apple slowly integrating touch-friendly icons and other functionality to their desktop operating system, I think it’s only a matter of time before we see touchscreen iMacs. But it looks like one man just beat them to it. 

NES Lunchbox: Eat Bit

NES Lunchbox: Eat Bit
There’s no such thing as being too old to play a video game, but I’m not sure if I can say the same about carrying a lunchbox. And I’m not brave or geeky enough to use a console as one.

LANDBEARSHARK Motorized Skateboard with Treads: Another Way to Die?

LANDBEARSHARK Motorized Skateboard with Treads: Another Way to Die?
Ever since I first saw motorized skateboards, I always thought that there were a really great way to get around. Now that I’m older and saner, I know for a fact that these contraptions can’t be too safe, especially when you don’t have many ways of slowing down.

QLOCKTWO Touch Verbal Alarm Clock: Wake Up With the Words

QLOCKTWO Touch Verbal Alarm Clock: Wake Up With the Words
A while ago, we reported about the QLOCKTWO, a stylish wall clock that used words instead of numbers to show the time. It was somewhat of a big clock, and it was also quite expensive (~$1,100), which is why I kind of like this new, smaller desktop version.

Smart Shirt Makes Things Easier for Hospital Patients

Smart Shirt Makes Things Easier for Hospital Patients
The hospital is one of my least favorite places in the world. I just get a negative vibe whenever I’m in one, although I haven’t really had a particularly traumatic experience inside one myself. What I have tried, though, was being admitted to a hospital a few years ago because I had been a running a high fever for several days straight.

Pac-Man Ghost Dress: You Spilled Some Inky on Yourself

Pac-Man Ghost Dress: You Spilled Some Inky on Yourself
I’m not sure from whence this Pac-Man ghost dress originated, but it’s pretty great. I especially like the pixelated fringing on the bottom of this short little number, done up to look like Inky, the cyan ghost.

Mario Dreams Fan Art is Positively Dreamy
Fans of the Mario games looking for some art for their rooms should definitely check out this awesome bit of fan art by digital artist Ken Wong.

Why the Virtual Boy Failed: The Music Video

Why the Virtual Boy Failed: The Music Video
The whole idea of Nintendo’s old Virtual Boy gaming system was loaded with flaws. Not only was the headache-inducing red LED 3D display impossible to watch for prolonged periods, the head-mounted display really wasn’t practical for use anywhere – especially not standing up or moving around.
