Melting Wooden Sculptures: Who’s Gonna Clean Up This Mess?

Melting Wooden Sculptures: Who’s Gonna Clean Up This Mess?
Nope, that’s not a giant chunk of chocolate melting in the corner of the room. That is merely one of three pieces that French design duo Rémy Clémente and Morgan Maccari of Bonsoir Paris have designed for their “Duramen Series.”

Ghostbusters vs. Pac-Man Ghost: Who You Gonna Wakka, Wakka, Wakka?

Ghostbusters vs. Pac-Man Ghost: Who You Gonna Wakka, Wakka, Wakka?
These new retro prints from Raid71 put together some of my favorite characters, in an unexpected, but not unlikely pixelated scenario. It makes you wonder who would win in the epic battle between the Ghostbusters and this blue ghost from Pac-Man.

Very, Very Late Temporary Watch Tattoos: Because Who Isn’t?

Very, Very Late Temporary Watch Tattoos: Because Who Isn’t?
If you loved temporary tattoos as a kid, then you’ll probably love Swissmiss’ new project Tattly, where they sell quite a few different sets that you can share with your friends. I especially like this tattoo, since its a watch that basically says that you’re very late, because who isn’t this time of year?

Custom LEGO Batman Tumbler Up for Sale

Custom LEGO Batman Tumbler Up for Sale
With The Dark Knight Rises coming out next Spring, I’ve got Batman on the brain. So I was pretty stoked when I saw this cool creation over on Etsy. It’s Batman’s Tumbler Batmobile, made out of LEGO bricks.

DIY LED Nametag Kit: No, Your Name is Not Slim Shady

DIY LED Nametag Kit: No, Your Name is Not Slim Shady
While it’s not as flexible as say, one of those moving message board nametags, this one is definitely more geeky, since you have to actually assemble the electronic components for yourself.

Would-be Sith Lord Assaults People with Lightsabers in Toys R Us

Would-be Sith Lord Assaults People with Lightsabers in Toys R Us
A man armed with two lightsabers went a little crazy in Toys R Us in Hillsboro, Portland, Oregon. It’s not clear whether 33 year-old David Allen Canterbury, who assaulted people with toy lightsabers at Toys R Us, was working alone, or if he had a Sith Master.

Blizzard Games NES Cartridges: Alternate Reality Cart Art

Blizzard Games NES Cartridges: Alternate Reality Cart Art
Looking for a holiday gift for a Blizzard fan? A Diablo III pre-order would do. But what if they already have that? Then pre-order Heart of the Swarm for them. If they have that as well, that’s where you start running out of options.

Skyrim Sells Over 10 Million Copies

Skyrim Sells Over 10 Million Copies
Bethesda Softworks has much to celebrate when it comes to their latest hit game, Skyrim. The game has already earned more than 24 ‘Game of the Year’ awards worldwide, and it seems as if nearly everyone is playing it.

MIAmobi SilentPocket Cases Help You Evade Big Brother

MIAmobi SilentPocket Cases Help You Evade Big Brother
If you’re the type of person who doesn’t like being tracked by the GPS chip on your phone, then MIAmobi’s SilentPocket cases are just for you, as they function as a Faraday pouch, temporarily blocking all inbound and outbound signals and allowing you to remain hidden from Big Brother.

This is How You Giftwrap a Copy of Portal 2

This is How You Giftwrap a Copy of Portal 2
It kind of ruins the surprise, but the presentation and in-game reference more than makes up for it.

Audman Dock Turns iPhone into Walkman

Audman Dock Turns iPhone into Walkman
The Audman is a Kickstarter project that is trying to bring back some retro-styling to the iPhone and iPod Touch. I’ll admit that plugging in your iPhone into the dock looks exactly like when you put a cassette into a Walkman, but there’s something strange about leaving it in there for long periods of time.

The Twist Lunch Bag: Unseal, Microwave, Eat, Reuse

The Twist Lunch Bag: Unseal, Microwave, Eat, Reuse
It’s always a pretty wasteful scene at the office during lunchtime. Colleagues troop into the lunch room, unwrap their lunches that have been packed in either foil, plastic containers, or styrofoam packages that are thrown out after each use.

Minikitchen Is as Compact as Kitchens Get

Minikitchen Is as Compact as Kitchens Get
The world’s population continues to grow exponentially. It seems that pretty soon, earth is going to run out of land for us humans to live in. More and more residential buildings and condominiums are being built so the places where houses used to (or should be) can be used for shopping malls, amusement parks, and commercial centers.

Safety Sphere Motorcycle Airbag Suit Turns You into a Giant Orange

Safety Sphere Motorcycle Airbag Suit Turns You into a Giant Orange
I’m one of those guys who thinks motorcycles are really cool, but I don’t ride one. I think it’s because I’ve always been convinced that I’d end up killing myself if I tried to negotiate the slick roads and maniac drivers of Chicago in the winter time.

Merry Cthulhu and an H.P. (Lovecraft) New Year

Merry Cthulhu and an H.P. (Lovecraft) New Year
While I still think that the Godzilla and Pac-Man trees are the greatest geeky holiday trees of all time, this festively decorated Cthulhu Christmas tree comes in a close third place on my list.

Mitsubishi EMIRAI Dashboard: When Can I Have it in My Car?

Mitsubishi EMIRAI Dashboard: When Can I Have it in My Car?
I’m pretty excited about the design of Mitsubishi’s futuristic EMIRAI dashboard concept. Although I have a few problems with the way that they designed the new steering wheel – for me a steering wheel needs to be an oval or a complete circle – the rest of the design looks pretty cool.
