We still have quite a wait for Nintendo’s next-gen Wii U console, which isn’t expected to be officially launched until near the end of 2012. To help get us through and ease our wait, some possible specs for the new Wii U have surfaced.
A while back, I told you guys about a pretty cool iPad 2 case which was made out of good old duct tape. At the time, the case was only a one-off, but you can now get in on the duct tape action yourself.
Now you can be a mayor of your own miniature city, thanks to the SimCity 2000 tabletop play set. Using Google Sketch-up, architect Michael Curry aka Skimbal created replicas of the buildings in Simcity 2000.

Michael Crichton would be so proud right now. Scientists from Japan and Russia are all working together on a plan that they think might bring the long extinct wooly mammoth back to existence. According to the scientists, the mammoth went extinct about 10,000 years ago.

Yum. Gingerbread. But eww Ewoks, the Return of the Jedi equivalent of Jar Jar Binks. Well, maybe they aren’t that bad. Screw it, I would still eat this whole damn village. Maybe by doing so, I can prevent Endor from ever existing.
An interior light for your purse or backpack might seem like a strange idea, but it actually might really come in handy, especially if you find yourself looking for your keys in the dark, or struggling to find something in your purse while sitting in a darkened movie theater.
