War of the Roses Gameplay Trailer. Spoiler Alert: Danny DeVito Isn’t in It
Developers Fatshark and Paradox just released a trailer for the upcoming game War of the Roses. I was sold on this game as soon as I saw the guy getting stabbed in the eye. The game is currently being developed and it is like a first person shooter that is also historical.

I’m very much looking forward to the next installment in the BioShock series. The third game in the series is being developed by Irrational Games and will be published by 2K Games.

Iron Man Mk. II Autopsy Movie Suit Up for Auction
Proof that even robotic suits have a corpse: a dismantled Iron Man Mk. II suit. I’m sure most of you who’ve seen Iron Man 2 can still remember the scene where James Rhodes (played by Don Cheadle) took one of Tony Stark’s armor to a military base and tore it down to see how it works.

I’m sure you’ve sat on your fair share of park benches and wished that they were made to be whole lot kinder on your behind than they currently are.

LEGO Anesthesia Machine Will Knock You Out

LEGO Anesthesia Machine Will Knock You Out
Take a close look at the photo below. At first, it just looks like a couple of pieces of equipment you’d find in a hospital operating room – but look closer. Closer still. Yep, the one on the left – made entirely out of LEGO bricks.

How Could You Be Angry in This Giant Birds’ Nest Bed?

How Could You Be Angry in This Giant Birds’ Nest Bed?
I was staring outside my window, being bored and all kinds of lazy, when I noticed a soon-to-be-mama bird in the middle of building her nest. There was just something about how carefully she aligned the bits of leaves and twigs that got me thinking about what it might feel like to sleep in one.

The GuiTARDIS: Long Live Timelord Rock

The GuiTARDIS: Long Live Timelord Rock
Doctor Who would have been an entirely different show if he had carried this guitar with him from adventure to adventure. He basically could have put on concerts across time and space. Maybe even drop in on Woodstock and Live Aid.

James Cameron Set to Plunge to the Deepest Part of the Ocean Floor: The Abyss IRL?

Star Wars Identities Posters: Your Eyes Can Deceive You; Don’t Trust Them.
Remember that Star Wars Identities museum exhibit that’s coming to Canada? Well, they’ve just released some great promotional posters. The exhibit is set to open April 19th in Montreal, Canada. It’s too bad that I now live on the other side of the world now – I actually used to live in Montreal.

Roccat Power Grid Turns Smartphones Into Gaming PC Sidekick: Razer Blade Who?

Roccat Power Grid Turns Smartphones Into Gaming PC Sidekick: Razer Blade Who?
We’ve seen a handful of gadgets that incorporate LCDs or touchscreens to keyboards to add functionality and eye candy, the most recent one being Razer’s madly overpriced Blade laptop. Now, a company called Roccat could make Razer and other gadget makers bang their heads on their wall for not thinking of this more elegant solution – an app that uses your smartphone as a secondary display and control panel.

Angry Birds in SPAAAACE (Really)

Angry Birds in SPAAAACE (Really)
Angry Birds has been crazy popular, there is no denying that. Developer Rovio has made a huge amount of money on both the game and insane amounts of merchandising. Each time a new version of the game comes out, it quickly moves to the top the charts and the latest version called Angry Birds Space will undoubtedly do the same.

Keyboard Stationery Set Might Confuse Touch Typists

Keyboard Stationery Set Might Confuse Touch Typists
I’ve been using a keyboard for so long that I rarely look down at the keys anymore. The only time I’ve really had to adjust was going from my old PC keyboard to the flat and slightly different layout of my Mac’s keyboard – oh and when I used a netbook with its awful 95% actual size keys.

Microwave Casemod: Overclockin’ Chips and Overcookin’ Popcorn
Cooking from the inside out is what microwave cooking computing is all about. Of course if your computer were a microwave, you won’t be able to escape the aroma of the ghost of Hot Pockets past as it heats up.
