Porsche 996 TV Entertainment Center, for Those Who Want a Third of a Porsche
Looks like Carlsen has done it again. He has crashed his Porsche into his living room wall. May as well use the thing as an entertainment center now. Well, at least this butt end of a 2005 Porsche 996 will hold a 42″ flat panel TV.

If you’re going to really rock out with an electric guitar, you deserve to look like a bad-ass, right. Well, behold the bad-assiest guitar out there – formed in the image of the mighty Cthulhu!

That’s No Moon, it’s Wheatley!

That’s No Moon, it’s Wheatley!
While I definitely recall the part of Portal 2 where Wheatley takes over Aperture Laboratories, I don’t actually remember the part where he builds a giant Death Star version of himself. Perhaps that’s coming in Portal 3?

It probably stays pretty cool in the Batcave, but just in case your dwelling isn’t so dark and climate controlled, check out this cool Batman ceiling fan. It’s probably the only Batman fan that hasn’t been talking about the new movie.

Remote Control Shutter Release Made Out of Wii Nunchuk
You probably have one or two extra Wii Nunchuk controllers lying about, or better yet, some cheapo knock-off ones that your friends, family, or kids just chucked around too hard and you no longer use. This was why Duncan Murdock decided to use one of those spare controllers to make a remote shutter control for his new DSLR.

China Working on High-Speed Train That Can Hit 310 MPH… on Rails
The fastest train that I’ve been in is Taiwan’s High Speed Rail and it went about 190 mph. That’s pretty fast for a land-based vehicle if you ask me. You can basically get from one end of the island to the other in about 90 minutes.
