AzTtec PC Case Mod: Doomsday Device

AzTtec PC Case Mod: Doomsday Device
We’ve featured a lot of unique case mods, but this has to be the most beautiful and detailed one that I’ve ever seen. It’s called the AzTtec and Dan McGrath is the talented architect and artisan behind it.

Star Wars Easter Eggs: The Eggpire Strikes Back

Star Wars Easter Eggs: The Eggpire Strikes Back
How did you guys like your Easter egg hunts? To be honest, I have rarely participated in any, but that doesn’t mean that I can’t appreciate some good geeky Easter eggs. Check out this bunch from Flickr contributor smile!mermaid 

3D-Printed Chess Set Transforms Into Robot: Checkmecha

3D-Printed Chess Set Transforms Into Robot: Checkmecha
Believe it or not, 3D-printed chess sets are nothing new, but Joseph Larson’s version of it is most certainly novel: a mighty morphin’ chess set. The pieces can be snapped together to form a giant robot that will make Deep Blue shut down in fear.

Stop-Motion LEGO Proposal: Will You Marry My Minifig?

Stop-Motion LEGO Proposal: Will You Marry My Minifig?
How does a LEGO-loving geek propose to his special lady? Take a hint from this guy. Filmmaker Walt Thompson from Fire Pit Pictures knows how to make a woman say “yes.” He went well beyond the call of duty and makes the rest of us look bad.

Superhero Easter Eggs Ready to Deliver a Basket Full of Hurt

Superhero Easter Eggs Ready to Deliver a Basket Full of Hurt
These Marvel and DC Comics decorated superhero eggs are pretty impressive. You get all of your favorites in egg form. There’s the Hulk, Spider-Man (no Doctor Egg-topus though), Batman, Green Lantern and more. I would have loved to get these in my Easter basket as a kid.

SushiBot Cranks out the Spicy Tuna Rolls

SushiBot Cranks out the Spicy Tuna Rolls
I love a good hand-rolled sushi roll as much as the next person, but I can only imagine that making hundreds of rolls of sushi every hour can be an exhausting and difficult experience for the chefs behind the sushi bar.

Giant Peep Cake Has a Very Special Surprise Inside

Giant Peep Cake Has a Very Special Surprise Inside
Peeps are one of my guilty pleasures. There’s just something so delicious about sugar-coated marshmallow chicks and bunnies that I think they should make them year-round. So when I saw this Peep cake over on Instructables, I just about died (from both its awesomeness and a sugar coma.)

Third Rail iPhone Battery Case Charges Other Gadgets at No Extra Charge

Third Rail iPhone Battery Case Charges Other Gadgets at No Extra Charge
A company called Third Rail Mobility has created the most practical iPhone battery and case combo I’ve ever seen. The company found a way to make their battery charge all other USB-compatible devices as well, which is great because the iPhone isn’t the only mobile device that runs on electricity.

Worlds Smallest Atari 2600 Still Can’t Improve E.T., Kool-Aid Man

Worlds Smallest Atari 2600 Still Can’t Improve E.T., Kool-Aid Man
Much as I love the memories of my original Atari 2600 console, I have to say that out of all of the retro gaming systems out there, the 2600 has stood the test of time the worst.

IV Drip Bag USB Lamp Filled With Light, Not Drugs

IV Drip Bag USB Lamp Filled With Light, Not Drugs
Ah, Japan. Just when I think your gadgets can’t get any weirder, you birth another oddity for our enjoyment. The latest strange creation to pop onto my radar screen is this – a lamp that looks like one of those intravenous drip bags.

Darth Vader Soap: Luke, I Am Your Lather!

Darth Vader Soap: Luke, I Am Your Lather!
I know it seems like an odd question, but I wonder how Darth Vader kept himself clean inside of that suit. I can only imagine he got really sweaty in there, and it’s not like it would have been easy for him to get out of it to take a bath.

Concentric Watch Has More Digits than Your Watch Has

Concentric Watch Has More Digits than Your Watch Has
I’m a big fan of cool and unusual watches, but I can’t decide if I love or hate the design of this particular timepiece. When you first look at the face of the Concentric watch from 666 Barcelona, it just looks like sensory overload. 

PowerPot Thermoelectric Generator Charges your Gadgets Using Fire

PowerPot Thermoelectric Generator Charges your Gadgets Using Fire
There are a number of backup emergency power generators on the market that allow you to charge your iPhone or other smartphones without a traditional power source. Most of those involve  consumables such as fuel cells or use solar panels that may or may not work depending on the environment.

Infiniti LE Concept Is Like the Nissan Leaf Seen through Beer Goggles

Infiniti LE Concept Is Like the Nissan Leaf Seen through Beer Goggles
I’ll be the first to say the technology behind the Nissan Leaf EV is very cool. I’ll also be the first one to say that the Nissan Leaf is one ugly automobile. It seems a lot of the time automakers go out of their way to make electric vehicles boring and unattractive.

FieldCandy Tents Bring Fun to the Wilderness

FieldCandy Tents Bring Fun to the Wilderness
Your camping trips, as they are right now, happen to be a bit lackluster.  Scouring the ground for bits of old possum meat and sleeping in a couple of quilted blankets is only fun for the first couple of days.
