Incredible Obama Hulk Action Figure: The Lean, Mean, Diplomatic Machine
History was made when President Barack Obama was elected as the President of the United States in 2008. I still remember that day like it was yesterday. And now here we are in 2012, with the U.S.

The Hundehiet Is Like a Storage Locker – for Your Dogs

The Hundehiet Is Like a Storage Locker – for Your Dogs
You’ve probably already seen those posters that warn you never to leave your dog alone in your car. The outside temperature may rise, or it may fall, but when your dog (or cat) is locked inside, well – I don’t even want to imagine what might happen to them.

R/C Inflatable R2-D2 Announced After Epic Space-Licensing Battle
Bladez Toyz, that British retailer where you can meet all of your R/C helicopter needs, recently decided that it wanted to add Star Wars themed remote control items to its Pump and Play sets. LucasArts, as always, was reluctant to give licensing rights, but after a difficult series of negotiations, Bladez secured the ability to produce these toys.

DoubleStar Zombie-X AK-47: The Last Gun You’ll Need for the Zombie Apocalypse
Whenever you run out of bullets or shells to take care of those pesky zombies – which we all know are coming one way or the other at some point in time – you need a fall-back weapon.

Killer Ring: For Those Who Dress to Kill

Killer Ring: For Those Who Dress to Kill
Valentine’s day is fast approaching. It’s probably the one day of the year that most singles love to hate for a variety of reasons. And if you still don’t have a ring on that finger, then maybe you’d like this ring instead: the Killer Ring.

TARDIS and R2-D2 Safes Secure Your Stuff Through the Power of Science Fiction
Whether you’re into Doctor Who or Star Wars (or both) – there’s a new way for you to secure your small valuables. These new digital “smartsafes” were spotted during the 2012 UK Toy Fair, and they look pretty nifty.

Old Cabinet Cards Turned into Geek Icons

Old Cabinet Cards Turned into Geek Icons
Old cabinet cards are pretty cool. These early photographs are mementos from another time that tell the stories of forgotten lives, leaving but an image for history to remember them by and fill in the blanks.

Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock Trailer Released

Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock Trailer Released
After teasing us back in December, we now have the first full-length trailer for the new Doctor Who video game The Eternity Clock. I have mixed emotions about this one. It looks like the game will be combining old-school platforming with third-person action and cutscenes.

Avengers Cologne Set: Aromas, Assemble!

Avengers Cologne Set: Aromas, Assemble!
Just because comic book geeks love characters who wear underpants on the outside doesn’t mean they don’t know a thing about grooming or smelling great. Doesn’t mean they’re gullible to cash-ins either, but I’m sure JADS International, makers of the Avengers Cologne set, already did their research.

Material 6 Wooden iPhone Back Panel: Wood Beats Plastic Every Time
While there are a plethora of different options if you want to customize your iPhone, I have to say that these wooden backs are definitely stylish, since they’re not just veneered stickers. Stickers are cool, but this bit of customization with the wood makes your iPhone different from most of the others around you – except for those who bought one of the other wooden iPhone backs on the market.

The Arc Printer Makes Printing at the Office a More Social Experience

The Arc Printer Makes Printing at the Office a More Social Experience
Everyone’s lining up to get the stuff they had printed out at the lone, office printer. As the line grows longer, the people start to get crankier. And before you know it, someone’s picking a fight from someone who belongs in another department.

Tokyoflash Kisai Optical Illusion LCD Watch: Now You See It Now You Don’t

Tokyoflash Kisai Optical Illusion LCD Watch: Now You See It Now You Don’t
One of the biggest complaints that I’ve had with some of these Japanese watches is that you always have to push a button to check the time. Since Tokyoflash started working with more LCD displays, instead of only using LEDs, this problem has been somewhat solved – assuming you can make out the time.

Tweeting Sensor: Posts Temperature, Humidity and Radiation, Eventually

Tweeting Sensor: Posts Temperature, Humidity and Radiation, Eventually
People use Twitter for various reasons. Some users tweet senseless stuff everyday (like “I just farted” or “My cat is sleeping.”) Some re-tweet quotes that they find meaningful, while some just post jokes, rants, and anything that they feel like posting about.

Record Player Plays Wood, Not Vinyl

Record Player Plays Wood, Not Vinyl
There’s just something extremely romantic and cool about record players. I think it’s because there are a lot of romance movies out there that have the main character put on a record and play it at the onset of a particularly romantic and sweet scene.
