Tauntaun Skin Rug: They Don’t Smell That Bad on the Outside
Tauntauns make great rugs – great sleeping bags too when you are in the freezing cold of Hoth and don’t care how it’s insides smell. This tauntaun skin rug was designed by Malaki Keller and is 100% awesome.

Lumu iPhone Light Meter: Because You Can’t Trust Your Retina. Or Your Retina Display.

Snapcat for Android: Because Cats Want to Take Selfies, Too
Cats are techie creatures. From playing games to wearing headphones (okay, so this was just an April Fools’ Day joke, but hey, I can totally see it happening), cats can do it all. And now a developer has created an app intended for use by your frisky kitty so it can take its own selfies.

Bowers & Wilkins Maserati Speakers: Time to Cash in That 401K

Bowers & Wilkins Maserati Speakers: Time to Cash in That 401K
There’s something quite special about high-end speakers, in the way that they are often able to recreate acoustic performances very accurately, akin to what holography is to visual senses. I’m not sure that these Bowers & Wilkins speakers will do that, but they certainly look the part.

Smart Ebike: German Car Company Outs Its First Electric Bike
There are plenty of electric bikes these days, but from time to time, one comes along that sets itself apart, like this one from Germany’s Smart. Smart is best known for their ultra compact city cars, but I’m impressed with this e-bike too.

Knit Sarlacc Pit Hand Puppet: Where’s Boba Felt?
Hand puppets are fun for kids, but these knitted toys really don’t quite hold the appeal today that they had in say, the 1500’s. So, how do you jazz up hand puppets so that people actually want to play with them today?

Human Armchair Disguise: Come Sit on My Lap

Human Armchair Disguise: Come Sit on My Lap
I find it amusing how Sherlock Holmes is a true master of disguise and blends in so well with his surroundings that you won’t even know he was there (think Game of Shadows.) If you’ve ever wanted to pull the “I’m on the armchair but you can’t see me” trick but aren’t very good with makeup, then here’s your chance: the Human Chair by artist Jamie Isenstein.

QuNeo Multitouch Music Controller: A Fingers-on Review
A while back, I wrote about the QuNeo, a reasonably priced, multitouch music controller, packed with triggers and modifiers. The folks at Keith McMillen Instruments were kind enough to set me up with a QuNeo so I could put it to the test.

Guy Puts Donkey Kong in a Barrel: At Least It’s Not on Fire
It’s like beating Kong in a barrel… Wait, that’s not how the saying goes. But you can say it now. This custom-built Donkey Kong tabletop arcade machine has been put into a barrel. Why? So you can drink and game of course.

Forget layer cake, level cake is what it’s all about for gamers. This amazing Super Mario Bros. cake represents the water, land and sky levels from the game in amazing detail.

Toothless Cosplay: How to Wear Your Dragon

Toothless Cosplay: How to Wear Your Dragon
The last cosplay I featured was very faithful to its source material. It was also legitimately creepy. This Toothless quad suit on the other hand may not be the most polished costume out there, but it is one of the most adorable ones I’ve ever seen.
