Kinetic Power Suit Ready to Charge Your MP3 Player AND Make You Look Foolish

NES Bed: Push Start to Sleep

NES Bed: Push Start to Sleep
This Nintendo NES bed is pretty awesome. In this case NES might stand for Nintendo Entertainment Sleep or Not Ever Sleeping, because it’s so cool. Sadly the reset button doesn’t make the bed for you and the power button doesn’t make the bed shake.

Revolights Turn Your Bike Tires into Lights

Revolights Turn Your Bike Tires into Lights
I’ve seen a number of products which let you turn your bike wheels and spokes into a source of illumination, but I have to say that the Revolights are the best idea I’ve seen yet.

Tetris Game Controlled with DDR Pads, DDT is Born

Tetris Game Controlled with DDR Pads, DDT is Born
Tetris is a classic game, so why not merge it with another classic? One that forces you to bust a move in order to rotate that Tetris piece and drop it in place. I’m talking about a six foot tall Tetris game controlled with a Dance Dance Revolution dance mat.

Back to the Future Nike Mag Shoes: LEGO Edition

Back to the Future Nike Mag Shoes: LEGO Edition
We were pretty excited when we heard about Nike’s new Back to the Future inspired MAG shoes. I just wish that they had power laces and that I could afford a pair. If that sounds like you as well, don’t despair.
