Aliens Chopsticks Will Impale and Hug Your Food

Aliens Chopsticks Will Impale and Hug Your Food
I’m not too keen on the lightsaber chopsticks; having my food all lit up isn’t so appealing to me. But I’m not sure I like these Aliens chopsticks either. These could be good for dieting though, because they might help gross out someone into eating less.

Podtime Sleeping Pod Blocks out the Outside World While You Nap

Podtime Sleeping Pod Blocks out the Outside World While You Nap
I like taking naps in private, but even I think that these Podtime Sleeping Pods are borderline ridiculous. While it seems like a pretty neat concept, it’s priced way too high (at £1,375 or about $2,148 USD) for mass enjoyment.

Ham Dogger Lets You Cook up Burgers in the Guise of Hotdogs

Arcade Mash-up Prints Confuse and Amuse

Arcade Mash-up Prints Confuse and Amuse
Say the words Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, Dig Dug, Centipede, Galaga or Joust, and you’ve just named some of my all-time favorite arcade games. So when I stumbled onto these unusual variants of these 1980s classics, I was at once befuddled and at the same time intrigued.

Wi-Fi Extending Robot: Not the Hero We Deserve, But the One We Need

TEAC SR-LUXi iPhone Alarm Clock Wakes You With Light
The Philips Wake-Up Light is one of my favorite alarm clocks, but I never picked one up because of the price . Check out this TEAC alarm clock dock for iPhones, which promises to do almost the same thing as the Philips clock, at a more reasonable cost.

TARDIS Shed: The Chameleon Circuit Works, Kinda

TARDIS Shed: The Chameleon Circuit Works, Kinda
Hey look! The Doctor fixed the Chameleon circuit. It doesn’t look like a Police Box at all now. More of a Police Shed. However, you’ll notice that that Dalek isn’t fooled for one minute. Unless he’s just after some pruning sheers or something.

Facehugger Corset is Hugging the Wrong Stuff

Facehugger Corset is Hugging the Wrong Stuff
This facehugger is doing it wrong. Not that I wouldn’t want to hug some boobs myself, but I don’t claim to be a facehugger and then go around being a boobhugger instead. This Alien inspired corset comes from Rage Custom Creations, which specializes in custom props and costumes.

Epic Dragon Slayer’s Armor Would Scare Dragons off Before You Could Slay One

Epic Dragon Slayer’s Armor Would Scare Dragons off Before You Could Slay One
Now I’m not a big cosplayer myself, but I can definitely appreciate quality costumes when I see them – and this one is a doozie. What you’re looking at here is an incredible leather armor getup that’s sure to scare the crap out of anyone who comes your way.

iPhone 5 to Sport 19-Pin Dock Connector?

iPhone 5 to Sport 19-Pin Dock Connector?
I’m already avoiding the purchase of new iPhone accessories, other than cases, in preparation for the next iteration of Apple’s iPhone, as there continue to be rumors that Apple’s new dock connector will be a 19-pin port instead of the long-standing universal iOS 30-pin port.
