Breadcrab: Baking Half-Life Style
Fans of the Half-Life series will immediately recognize this delicacy as one of those pesky, but relatively easy to kill headcrabs. Now it might just be my shellfish allergy and fear or anaphylactic shock, but I never really had the desire to find out what a headcrab tasted like, but I might make an exception for this version.

Plush Spocktopus is More Logical Than It Looks

Plush Spocktopus is More Logical Than It Looks
If Spock had eight arms he could have done several jobs on the Enterprise bridge at once instead of just being Science officer. This seems like the next logical step in Vulcan evolution anyway. First you master emotions and the mind, then you grow several more arms so that you can work more efficiently.

Case Cord iPhone Case for Gadget Fashionistas
Ever wanted to match your iPhone’s case with your wardrobe? I actually know a lot of people who do this, and this case takes the possible customization a bit further. At the end, it will match your clothes, but you most probably will have to sacrifice some of your old clothes to make it happen.
