Check out this awesomely detailed Chewbacca cake that also looks a bit like Bigfoot. Hopefully it won’t taste like hairballs and make you cough up fur like your cat. Normally, I would be afraid of a Wookiee pulling my arm out of it’s socket, but I could eat this thing all day long and just laugh at how it can’t kill me.
Don’t get me wrong, I love R2-D2, but Podpadstudios‘ Astromech droid is plain beautiful. Just look at the detail and all of those lights. Her name is R11:E1, a.k.a. Zoe. Her creator named her after Zoe from Caprica, which also warms my cold dead heart.
The market is flooded with sports cameras it seems. Not long ago, GoPro unveiled its new HERO3 action camera that’s designed to be used for all sorts of sports from auto racing to skiing. Now, Drift Innovation has unveiled its latest sports camera called the Drift HD Ghost which has some solid specs of its own.
I think E-ink display watches are some of the most underrated timepieces out there. They have cool, modern and easy-on-the-eyes displays, with the only downside being their lack of self-illumination. While there aren’t a ton of E-ink watches on the market, I’d love to see this cool design concept get produced.
Like many people, I have a serious love-hate relationship with movie and television studios. I love a lot of the content they produce, but they never cease to irritate me when it comes to their heavy-handed approach to trying to block viewers from accessing content the way we want to access it.
If you only have a cassette player in your car, you probably bought a cassette adapter to connect your mp3 player or phone. This neat hack by the clever Kipkay will help you keep up with the times without shelling out a lot of money by turning this:
Into… (drumroll, please…) this:
The hack involves taking the Bluetooth transmitter from a (used) Bluetooth headset and connecting it with the electronics inside the adapter:
I wish Kipkay provided an alternative way of making the Bluetooth transmitter’s controls accessible, because that’s an equally crucial part of the hack.
Halo 4 just came out, and there’s never any shortage of multiplayer shooters available, but if you’ve already topped the leaderboard, fragged everyone, topped the fragleader or boarded everyone – my expertise regarding the current state of multiplayer combat games is, shall we say, non-existent – why not have a go at this text-based multiplayer shooter?
Prog group of researchers from the School of Electronic Engineering at Bangor University in the UK are working on a plan that could result in broadband Internet speeds up to 2000 times faster than we have today – with little additional cost.
Keyboard-cases are nothing new for iPads, but it takes a certain mix of elements to make a really good one. After tackling your smartphone typing needs, Elecom decided to create a keyboard-case for your tablet.
In the future, when the inevitable and literal fast food wars break out, we’ll all be too fat and unhealthy to fight for our chain of choice – which is why these fast food chains should start developing their own war machines.
When a standard human-sized refrigerator is just not enough, you can always buy this massive Robeys Meneghini La Cambusa refrigerator. It’s just $40,500(USD), and it’s perfect for the Hutt with a Hutt-sized appetite. You can probably even put a smuggler frozen in carbonite inside.
Most of us weren’t born yet back in the 1950s, but it was definitely a time long before modern remote-controlled electronic playthings. But that doesn’t mean there weren’t some cool toys back in the day – like this awesome old-school metal tank I spotted over on Etsy.
It’s called the Rosko Pom Pom, and this cold war-era toy tank operates using a wired remote control, which allows it to move forward and backwards and rotate the turret.
The turret even raises and lowers and makes some awesome firing sounds when activated – though the projectiles don’t actually go anywhere.
I’m here to tell you if you don’t have some sort of screen protection on your iPad, it’s only a matter of time before you end up with little scratches all over it. Scratches on the screen are annoying too because after a while you can pretty much only see scratches when you look at the screen.
My favorite part of Tim Burton’s cult classic Mars Attacks! (besides every scene with Jack Nicholson in it) is the part where grandma’s Indian Love Call yodeling record is discovered to be the Achilles’ heel of the invaders, blowing their heads to smithereens.
While I question the practicality of these perforated “sunglasses,” there’s no question at all about their awesomeness – as they’re embellished with cool images from pop culture and retro video games.
According to their creator, Hong Kong-based artist Millie Chiu, the tiny holes actually can help short-sighted or long-sighted vision by filtering out indirect light sources – the result being sharper vision.
Each pair is hand-drawn, with scenes ranging from Pac-Man and Space Invaders, to game health indicators, and a TV color bar test pattern.
