AT-AT Bunk Bed: Just Don’t Take the Legs out While I’m Sleeping

AT-AT Bunk Bed: Just Don’t Take the Legs out While I’m Sleeping
Look at that kid. That is one happy Padawan. You would be that happy too if this was your bunk bed. This kid gets to sleep in an AT-AT and doesn’t even have to worry about rebel snowspeeders bringing it crashing down to the floor.

Is That a Banana in Your Pocket, or Are You Just Going to Shoot Me?

Is That a Banana in Your Pocket, or Are You Just Going to Shoot Me?
We’ve featured lots of cool and geeky handmade prop weapons here over the years, but I can honestly say this is the first time I’ve seen a gun made out of a banana. (Other than those times when I was a kid and just pretended a banana was a gun – or a telephone.)

Rokbed Mountable iPhone Case: Prop it Up Anywhere

Rokbed Mountable iPhone Case: Prop it Up Anywhere
When I first saw this iPhone case, the design kind of reminded me of the Transformers. While that might not have been the initial intent, the Rokbed case is definitely something unique-looking and functional since it will allow you to mount your iPhone almost anywhere.

Sony to Bring Back Backwards Compatibility via Gaikai? [Rumor]: Cross-Platforming the Streams
A much-loved feature that was taken away from the PlayStation 3 could be making a comeback, but not through emulation. There’s a rumor among rumor-having places that Sony will be partnering with cloud gaming service Gaikai to stream PS One and PlayStation 2 games to “PlayStation hardware.”

Taxidermy Cat Quadcopter is Weirder Than Nyan Cat

Taxidermy Cat Quadcopter is Weirder Than Nyan Cat
Meet Orville the flying feline. He’s half-cat, half-quadcopter, 100% bizarre. I’m not sure if this marriage of dead animal and machine will fly with animal rights groups, but it was done with the consent of Orville’s owner.

Sony Pulse Elite Headphones: For Solitary Gaming

Sony Pulse Elite Headphones: For Solitary Gaming
I’ve gotten used to using headphones all of the time when I’m home. It’s just more convenient, and after a while you forget that you have them on, especially for gaming, watching movies, or just listening to music.

Helicopter Ceiling Fan Lands Upside-Down

Helicopter Ceiling Fan Lands Upside-Down
I’ll start by saying that a ceiling fan that looked this cool would never fly (pun intended) in my house, as our decor is a little too “modern and sophisticated” for this to blend into any of our current spaces.

Pac-Man Meets the Muppets

Pac-Man Meets the Muppets
For the longest time, I thought I was the only one who made the observation that both Pac-Man and Fozzie the Bear make the same “Wocka, Wocka, Wocka” sound. Guess I’m not alone.

Vinci Tab II: The Tablet You Won’t Mind Toddlers Playing With

Vinci Tab II: The Tablet You Won’t Mind Toddlers Playing With
I’m no longer surprised to see toddlers playing with iPads and iPhones, but I have to say that I’d rather have them playing with something that’s actually made for them, kind of like the Vinci Tab II tablet.

Griffin Survivor Military iPhone Case Will Help Your Phone Survive World War Z

Griffin Survivor Military iPhone Case Will Help Your Phone Survive World War Z
When zombies arrive and start taking over the world, you know that you can’t just use your favorite iPhone case to keep your precious phone safe, assuming the cellular networks are still functioning that is. That’s why you should opt for the Griffin Survivor military case, which will protect your phone no matter what.

Google’s World Wonders Project Uses Street View Tech

Google’s World Wonders Project Uses Street View Tech
There a lot of things I’ve always wanted to see around the world, but I’ll probably never get a chance to actually go to. Most of the stuff that I really want to see here are things like the Colosseum in Rome, Stonehenge, and the leaning Tower of Pisa to name a few.

Sega Reveals Gamestop Pre-Order Details for Aliens: Colonial Marines

Sega Reveals Gamestop Pre-Order Details for Aliens: Colonial Marines
Of all the science fiction/horror films out there, the Alien franchise has always been my favorite. I’ve always particularly like the original Alien film and the 1986 follow-up Aliens. If you’re a fan of that flick, you probably already know that a video game called Aliens: Colonial Marines is coming on February 12, 2013.

Logitech Solar Keyboard K760: One Keyboard to Rule Them All

Logitech Solar Keyboard K760: One Keyboard to Rule Them All
If you’re like me, you probably tend to use all of your OS X and iOS devices simultaneously, which is one reason why I like the Logitech Wireless Keyboard K760. It doesn’t have a numeric keypad, but this single keyboard will work with all of your devices.

Make Your Own Hovercraft, Perhaps One Day Rule the World

Make Your Own Hovercraft, Perhaps One Day Rule the World
Here’s something fun that you can do over the weekend. Build your own hovercraft. It’s every geek’s dream to build a real working hovercraft and with a little help from Mythbusters’ Adam Savage, you can build a floating machine and laugh maniacally as you make plans to one day rule the world.

Minesweeper Scratch-Off Postcard: Wish You Were Stressed

Minesweeper Scratch-Off Postcard: Wish You Were Stressed
Here’s a couple of playable Minesweeper postcards from Connect Design, perfect for those who are planning to take a trip to Windows 3.1. The postcards are played by scratching the squares off. They’re way harder than the Windows version because it’s possible to land on a mine on your first go.

Fahrradi Faralla FFX Has More in Common with Lance Armstrong Than Enzo Ferrari

Fahrradi Faralla FFX Has More in Common with Lance Armstrong Than Enzo Ferrari
If you’ve ever dreamed of owning a Ferrari, but as a means of transport a bicycle is more to your budgetary constraints, check out this cool supercar. The Fahrradi Faralla FFX is actually more of a pedal car than supercar since underneath the sleek Ferrari-esq exterior hides the inner workings of a bicycle.
