Star Trek Pajamas Go Where No Sleepwear Has Gone Before

Star Trek Pajamas Go Where No Sleepwear Has Gone Before
I always wondered what the crew of the Starship Enterprise did at bed time. It’s not like you often saw them sleeping. I’m guessing that when they did turn in for the night, they wore these.

Chewbacca Cake Is Soft, Not Chewy on the Inside

Chewbacca Cake Is Soft, Not Chewy on the Inside
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.

Zoe, the Custom Astromech Droid Gives R2-D2 Some Serious Competition

Zoe, the Custom Astromech Droid Gives R2-D2 Some Serious Competition
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.

Paper Blade E-Ink Watch Concept Offers a Refreshingly Different Design

Paper Blade E-Ink Watch Concept Offers a Refreshingly Different Design
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.

Dish Network Wins Against TV Studios Trying to Ban AutoHop

Dish Network Wins Against TV Studios Trying to Ban AutoHop
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.

Cassette Adapter Bluetooth Hack: Cost Cutting Cutting Edge

Cassette Adapter Bluetooth Hack: Cost Cutting Cutting Edge
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.

Text-Based Multiplayer Shooter: Zork of Duty

Text-Based Multiplayer Shooter: Zork of Duty
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?

LEGO Big MaK Mech: I’m Lovin’ It

LEGO Big MaK Mech: I’m Lovin’ It
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.

Rosko Pom Pom Tank: Coolest Retro Toy Ever?

Rosko Pom Pom Tank: Coolest Retro Toy Ever?
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.

VITREO Protects Your iPad Glass with More Glass

VITREO Protects Your iPad Glass with More Glass
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.

Mars Attacks! Christmas Ornament: Just Don’t Yodel Near It

Mars Attacks! Christmas Ornament: Just Don’t Yodel Near It
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.

Video Game Sunglasses Keep the Pixels out of Your Eyes

Video Game Sunglasses Keep the Pixels out of Your Eyes
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.
