If you want to make the best cup of Imperial tea ever, forget tea bags. You need to soak a Death Star in your cup. A Death Star filled with sweet fragrant tea leaves. This silver space station may not shoot lasers at Alderaan, but it will infuse hot water with tasty (and evil) tea.

CatVengers: A Movie I’d Pay $15 to See
Now before you get all mad at me for saying that I was kind of disappointed in the big noisy mess that was The Avengers, I must mention that I was battling the brain-bending side effects of a new medicine, combined with the headache inducing 3D glasses and an IMAX screen on the day I saw it, so maybe I need to give it another chance when it comes out on Blu-ray.

Own Your Own Life-Size Bioshock Big Daddy and Little Sister
Looking for the perfect thing to greet guests in your foyer? Screw the potted plants and wall art and go for something a bit more dramatic.

Cooking Simulator Made by Japanese Researchers: Cooking Mama 2099

SmartThings: Make Your Dumb Home Intelligent

Mega Man Cutting Board Rocks, Man.
Fans of Mega Man will find this kitchen accessory as hard to resist as taking down Dr. Wily. It’s an awesome cutting board assembled to look just like the classic 8-bit gaming icon.

OwnFone Dials People, Not Numbers

OwnFone Dials People, Not Numbers
And I thought that John’s Phone was as dumb as dumbphones get. But now, a UK-based company has created OwnFone, a phone that doesn’t even have a number pad, just speed dials people that you set when you order the phone.
