Pokémon Eye Chart: Gotta See ‘Em All

Pokémon Eye Chart: Gotta See ‘Em All
Here’s a clever eye chart that replaces the letters with silhouettes of various Pokémon. It’s a bit deceptive though, because even if you have perfect vision you can’t catch them all. The bottom ones are more pixel monsters than pocket monsters.

Star Wars AT-ST Cat Playhouse: CAT-ST

Star Wars AT-ST Cat Playhouse: CAT-ST
I’m pretty sure the battle of Endor would have turned out differently if the AT-STs had been piloted by cats instead of Imperial troopers. Cats don’t fall for all of those old jungle traps. Plus they would just jump out of the vehicles and claw Wicket and his Ewok friends to pieces.

Video Game Cookies: From Pixels to Pastries

Video Game Cookies: From Pixels to Pastries
If there’s two things in life I love, it’s video games and cookies. I mean, what’s not to like? Apparently, the guys over at Parchment Cookies have the same mentality, and have baked up some epic video game-inspired cookies for us to admire (and eat if we could afford them.)

WizDish Lets You Walk (Er, Shuffle) Through Your Favorite Games
As head-mounted displays and motion controllers improve, the possibility of truly-immersive virtual reality in our living rooms continues to get closer and closer to our reach. However one of the big challenges is that you’ll still be standing still or walking in place in any game that involves moving around.

Darth Vader Force Gloves: Behold the Power of the Dark Side (of Magnets)

Darth Vader Force Gloves: Behold the Power of the Dark Side (of Magnets)
If only telekinesis were a real thing, we wouldn’t need to resort to such cheap parlor tricks as sticking magnets inside our gloves, but unfortunately we live in the real world, and as far as I know, The Force doesn’t actually exist in our universe.

Skimpy Sesame Street Costumes: Slutty Day, Sweepin’ the Clothes Away…

Skimpy Sesame Street Costumes: Slutty Day, Sweepin’ the Clothes Away…
Here’s one of the perks of being a girl: easier-to-make Halloween costumes. That’s because if you forgot to rent a costume or put one together, all you have to do is put on something skimpy and form-fitting and call yourself the Slutty-something.

Mass Effect 3 to Get New DLC: Omega
I’m huge fan of Mass Effect 3 and the other two games that make up the Mass Effect franchise. I love the way these games combine role-playing elements with exploration, with a dash of shooter on the side.

Four-Wheeler + Jetski = Quadski

Four-Wheeler + Jetski = Quadski
I think like most people who grew up watching James Bond hoon that white Lotus Esprit around Greece and then drive it directly into and out of the ocean where it became a submarine, I’ve always wanted an amphibious vehicle.

Human Head Cake Has Got Its Eye on You

Human Head Cake Has Got Its Eye on You
I’m not sure that I could bring myself to pull out a knife and start slicing into this gory skinless human head cake, but it’s still pretty awesome.

Mass Effect N7 Ambassador Watch: Spectre Gadget

Mass Effect N7 Ambassador Watch: Spectre Gadget
If the Mass Effect Wikia is to be believed, the Omni-tool is a flashlight, a scanner, a camera, a media player, a gaming console, a hacking tool, a recycling machine, a medical device and of course a weapon.

People fall in and out of love all the time. Unfortunately, some couples decide to break up after making all sorts of wedding plans and preparations. Not only is that exceptionally heartbreaking, it also results in a whole lot of wasted time and money.
