OriHime Robot Strikes Sexy Robot Poses

OriHime Robot Strikes Sexy Robot Poses
The OriHime robot was developed in Japan by Kentaro Yoshifuji, an engineering student at Waseda University, and it attempts to takes the robotic form to a sexy new level. While it has a more feminine form than the typical ‘bot, it definitely won’t be putting Victoria’s Secret models out of a job anytime soon.

Boombox Piñata Drops Beats (and Candy)
I for one think that every party should have a piñata. I don’t care if it’s a birthday, a christening, a wedding or a wake. Smacking objects with a bat while blindfolded until candy pours onto the ground is just perfect for any occasion.

TARDIS Cake is Tastier on the Inside
There’s nothing us geeks like more than stuff that looks like Doctor Who’s TARDIS. Except maybe a TARDIS that’s actually edible. Sign me up. You have to send mad props to the guys at UK bakery Confarreatio Cakes for pulling off this incredible TARDIS cake.

LEGO Bionicle Tiger Is on the Prowl

LEGO Bionicle Tiger Is on the Prowl
When I was a kid, there was no such thing as LEGO Bionicle. Heck, I think we pretty much had square and rectangular bricks and the occasional yellow minifig with a construction hat. And while purists may thing that all the fancy parts available in today’s LEGO kits are “cheating,” I’m still impressed when someone can take the parts to come up with something completely new and unique – like this awesome tiger made from Bionicle components.

Self-Healing Electronics Pave the Way for More Durable Gadgets. Also T-1000.

Self-Healing Electronics Pave the Way for More Durable Gadgets. Also T-1000.
It’s a science fiction staple – a character gets blasted, sliced or run over, but instead of dying it just stares at its wound while its body repairs itself as everyone watches in disbelief. Here’s a development that brings us just that much closer to that: circuitry that can heal itself, developed by a team of engineers at the University of Illinois.

Serenity Now, in Gingerbread Form

Serenity Now, in Gingerbread Form
I promise, this is the last gingerbread thing I talk about this holiday season, but c’mon this one is Serenity from Firefly, so I couldn’t ignore it. That is one good looking ship no matter what it’s made out of.

Cushpad Gives iPad 2 a Soft and Happy Home
If you’re like me, you’ve gotten in the habit of taking your iPad to bed, and using it to read, surf the web and play games. One of the most annoying things about the iPad in bed is trying to use it while you’re lying down.

Collaspible iPhone Camera Handle: You’ll Never Cover Up That Lens Again

Collaspible iPhone Camera Handle: You’ll Never Cover Up That Lens Again
While point-and-shoot cameras are still popular, it comes as no surprise that the iPhone has taken the lead the most popular camera on Flickr. As such, if you’ve experimented, you’ve probably covered up the camera lens with your finger on more than one occasion while taking snapshots or videos.

R2-D2 Disneyland Souvenir Cup: Definitely The Droid We’re Looking For

R2-D2 Disneyland Souvenir Cup: Definitely The Droid We’re Looking For

Peter Piper Picked a Peck of Puxxle Pixel Puzzles
I used to like putting together puzzles, but I have gotten out of the habit over the years. These awesome pixel puzzles might just rekindle my love for puzzles, since they aren’t just puzzles, you can actually use them to decorate the walls of your house.
