Christmas at the Skywalkers’, LEGO Style

Christmas at the Skywalkers’, LEGO Style
This shot of Luke and Leia decorating the Xmas tree does look quite funny, though the idea of a dead Vader head on as a tree-topper is a bit morbid. Either way, even with Darth Vader gone, the Skywalkers still have to celebrate Christmas, even if they are in a galaxy far, far away.

Portal Christmas Tree Must Be the Pride of *Subject Hometown Here*
Now I know where that Portal 2 gift box belongs. Under over beside this Christmas tree.

Evian Star Wars Bottles: Drink the Force

Evian Star Wars Bottles: Drink the Force
While I’m far from being a water-snob, I do like drinking Evian instead of tap water whenever I can find it here in Taipei. These concept Star Wars Evian bottles look pretty awesome, and just make me want to drink the expensive bottled water even more.

The latest geek gingerbread treat is an evil one. I present to you the Diablo III Gingerbread Skull, complete with Candy Soulstone. It’s yummy and evil. Now we are officially ready for the game, which is rumored to be released on January 24, 2012.

Modern Mickey Watch: Who’s the Leader of the Club That’s Made for L.E.D.?
Geeks who also happen to be fans of Mickey Mouse might enjoy telling time with this modern watch, which uses the head and ears of the famous cartoon mouse to display the time.

Retro USB Mouse Sends Your Computer Back… to the Past

Retro USB Mouse Sends Your Computer Back… to the Past
If there’s one thing I don’t miss about the early days of GUI-based computing, it’s those uncomfortable mice with the squared-off edges, which clearly weren’t designed for the human hand. About the only thing worse in my opinion was those stupid puck mice that came with the original iMac.

3D-Printed Cubic Kite Shouldn’t Fly But Does

3D-Printed Cubic Kite Shouldn’t Fly But Does
At first when you look at this strange looking kite, you’d think that it wouldn’t be able to get airborne, because of its shape and complexity. But this somewhat large, cubic structure is fully capable of flight.

Transformers v. Transformers: Hasbro Sues Asus Over Transformer Prime Name

Transformers v. Transformers: Hasbro Sues Asus Over Transformer Prime Name
Hasbro owns the Transformers brand, and they are now suing Asus over the name of its latest tablet, the Transformer Prime, which clearly has nothing to do with the franchise. Crappy movies are okay, just don’t use two words in the English dictionary that we have previously used, because we own those words.

Yamaha THR Portable Amps Let you Jam in Retro Style

Yamaha THR Portable Amps Let you Jam in Retro Style
I have no musical talent, though I always thought playing the guitar would be cool. However, I lacked the dedication and drive to actually practice. If you are the sort that likes to rock on your guitar wherever you might be and you appreciate retro design check this out.

Ferrari-Powered Four-Wheeler Straps 250HP to Your Butt

Ferrari-Powered Four-Wheeler Straps 250HP to Your Butt
This may be the coolest four-wheeler in the history of four-wheelers. It’s Ferrari red, has a 6-speed transmission from a BMW M3, and a 250hp Ferrari 3.0L V8 engine inside the body work. It looks more like a three-wheeler, but if you look closely, you can see that the thing has two rear wheels.

Amazing Darth Vader Sculpture Made from Grandma’s Old Cutlery

Amazing Darth Vader Sculpture Made from Grandma’s Old Cutlery
Take a careful look at this bust of the Dark Lord of the Sith. Notice anything strange about it? Gaze deeply into Vader’s eyes. Look closer, and you’ll notice that it’s made from various bits and bobs of found junk from the cutlery drawer (and other antique stuff from your Nana’s house).

Xbox 360 Dash Update Breaks Online Access for Some

Xbox 360 Dash Update Breaks Online Access for Some
I mentioned before that the Xbox 360 was set to get a dash update this month. As gamers are apt to do, most went out and downloaded that update as soon as it was available. Now, a few people that installed the update have encountered a significant issue where they can’t get online afterwards.

Mysterious Space Ball in Namibia is a Pressure Vessel

Mysterious Space Ball in Namibia is a Pressure Vessel
Somehow, I missed most of the hubbub over this mysterious ball that is said to have fallen from the sky and landed in Namibia. It looks rather like a canon ball. It seems that while the ball may have in fact fallen from space and crashed into the ground in Namibia, it’s not some alien orb waiting for its masters to show up and turn it on to destroy the world.

5-1/4″ Floppy Disk Wall Sconce: Storage at the Speed of Light

5-1/4″ Floppy Disk Wall Sconce: Storage at the Speed of Light
Celebrate old school computing with this awesomely geeky wall sconce, made in the shape of an old 5-1/4″ floppy disk. Man, I haven’t used one of those in years – and I can’t say I miss it.

Star Trek Mailbox: to Boldly Go Where No Junk Mail Has Gone Before

Star Trek Mailbox: to Boldly Go Where No Junk Mail Has Gone Before
This may be the coolest mailbox ever. Too bad it can’t just phaser your junk mail before it enters the shuttlecraft docking bay. Also too bad it can’t use a tractor beam to get the mail from the box to your door.
