HiCan Gaming Bed: You Can Sleep with Your Games – Just Don’t SLEEP with Your Games
Video games can be addictive. I think anyone who’s played a particularly engrossing game can attest to that fact.

Sensei: 2 Chairs, 1 Table

Sensei: 2 Chairs, 1 Table
Furniture that can be transformed into other pieces of furniture isn’t exactly new. I think the idea was inspired by the fact that most of us are cramped for space in our homes, and convertible furniture seems like a good solution to that.

Star Wars Engagement Rings: May the Force be with Your Marriage
This isn’t the first time we’ve see geek-themed engagement rings, and I’m fairly certain this won’t be the last either. You might have heard all about Star Wars creator George Lucas’ engagement with his longtime girlfriend earlier this month. 

Chocolate Camera: the Way to a Photographer’s Heart

Chocolate Camera: the Way to a Photographer’s Heart
…and to the dentist’s office. Etsy seller Hans Chung has created the opposite of the camera that looks like a chocolate bar. I wonder which of the two is stranger. You be the judge. Behold! A life-size chocolate replica of the Canon D60, including a lens and battery grip.

Civil War Confederate Submarine May Have Sunk Itself
During the Civil War, the Confederate Army launched what has been dubbed the world’s first successful attack submarine. The submarine was called the H.L.

Sonic the Hedgehog Cartridge Soap Scrubs off the Stench of Eggman
After a hard day of spiraling through loops and collecting rings, it’s time for a good shower. A hedgehog can get pretty dirty running around all those 16-bit landscapes. This Sonic the Hedgehog soap should help.

DARPA Wants Electronics That Melt into the Environment on Command
DARPA is looking for input from companies in the electronics industry, researchers, and other interested parties on technology that sounds like something out of a Mission Impossible movie. No, they don’t want exploding sunglasses or anything like that.

Mario and Luigi as Ghostbusters: Who Ya Gonna Call?

Mario and Luigi as Ghostbusters: Who Ya Gonna Call?
I think we finally have a worthy idea for the next Ghostbusters film, based on this work of fine geek art. Imagine Mario and Luigi Ghostbusting and saving Peach from Boo in the haunted castle.

3-in-1 Cutlery is the King of All Sporks, Knorks, and Spifes
Looking at the assortment of combination utensils in the market like sporks, knorks, and spifes – you’d think that they’d have thought of every possible combination there is. Each of the above combines two utensils, and I’m pretty sure you’ve used at least one of them a couple of times in your lifetime: spork is a spoon and fork in one; the knork is a knife and fork in one; and the spife is a spoon with a knife-like handle.
