The Walking Dead Cross-Stitched Page: Fabric Novel

The Walking Dead Cross-Stitched Page: Fabric Novel
The title already spoils it, but you have to see this to believe it. Sprite Stitch forum member Cross Stitch Ninja backs up his or her moniker with this jaw-dropping cross stitch piece. If you think cross-stitch is only good for pixel art, think again.

Legend of Zelda Quilt: It’s Dangerous to Nap Alone, Take This!
In all honesty, it’s been a while since I dusted off my original NES copy of The Legend of Zelda, but it’s still one of the all time classic video games, IMHO. But even if you don’t play the game regularly, you could have a daily reminder of Link’s adventures thanks to this awesome Legend of Zelda quilt.

The New Mac Pro Gets Mocked

The New Mac Pro Gets Mocked
Despite its innovative design, Apple’s reimagined Mac Pro’s look has definitely been polarizing. Its black cylindrical case has been compared to everything from a garbage can to an umbrella stand. Its unconventional design has led to numerous parodies, and the guys over at C|NET Asia and What new Mac Pro Should Be have been kind enough to compile some of the best for us.

Retro-Bit Wireless Hypermode N64 Controller: Sit Back and Enjoy the Classics
Corded controllers led to one of the iconic images in many homes in the 80s and 90s: kids sitting on the floor, controller in hand and looking up at their TV. But if you’re TV is too big to view up close and your ass is too lazy to get off the couch, keep an eye on Retro-Bit’s Wireless Hypermode retro controllers.

Google Project Loon Internet Balloons: SkyNet, Literally.
If Google Fiber is the company’s attempt at bringing superb Internet connections to developed areas, Project Loon is Google’s plan to connect areas that may otherwise have no access to the Internet at all. These can be rural areas, urban areas with coverage gaps, areas struck by disaster and areas where nerds are having birthday parties.

Little Free Libraries Hit the Streets of NYC

Little Free Libraries Hit the Streets of NYC
The Little Free Library isn’t a new movement, although it’s definitely still a novel one. We covered this neat project almost a year ago, where we saw participants build mini “libraries” that looked like they were converted from old mailboxes and birdhouses.

Standing Task Chair Lets You Sit While You’re Using Your Standing Desk

Standing Task Chair Lets You Sit While You’re Using Your Standing Desk
Many people believe that standing is better than sitting, especially for those who have desk jobs or work long hours on their computers. Standing for hours on end in front of a standing desk isn’t the most comfortable thing to do, but it could give you the added benefits promised for those who stand up more.

Mighty Mug Promises You’ll Never Spill Your Coffee Ever Again

Mighty Mug Promises You’ll Never Spill Your Coffee Ever Again
How many mugs have you broken this year? If you answer two or more, then you’re a certified klutz and you shouldn’t be using glassware anymore. You’re probably better off with something like the Mighty Mug.

X-Cube 3D Printed Open Source Puzzle Cube: Rubikulous

X-Cube 3D Printed Open Source Puzzle Cube: Rubikulous
Dane Christianson’s X-Cube is not the weirdest, most complex or most sophisticated puzzle cube I’ve ever seen. But Dane didn’t really want to make the world’s most difficult or intimidating take on the Rubik’s cube. His aim with the X-Cube was to make a fun and relatable product to raise people’s awareness about 3D printing.

Neuro Knitting’s Scarves Will Cover Your Neck in Brain Waves

Neuro Knitting’s Scarves Will Cover Your Neck in Brain Waves
Customized scarves are nothing new, but artists Varvara Guljajeva and Mar Canet still came up with something truly novel and different in this category. They worked with Sebastian Mealla from the Music Technology Group in Barcelona to create something called Neuro Knitting.

Custom PlayStation 3s for Sony’s Friends: It Only Does Sweet Casemods
The very talented case modder Javier Riquelme customized several PlayStation 3 consoles for Sony, who in turn gave them as gifts to its partner developers and publishers. With the exception of what seems to be Javier’s trademark flourish, each console looks radically different and suited to its theme.

This Robot Will Beat You at Air Hockey

This Robot Will Beat You at Air Hockey
If you fancy yourself a good air hockey player, this robot may have a thing or two to teach you. It comes from Japanese researchers at Chiba University’s Namiki Lab. It is pretty good at competing against human players because the robot changes its strategy based on its human opponent’s playing style.

200hp Golf Cart Reaches 100mph

200hp Golf Cart Reaches 100mph
Even with their speed limiters disabled, stock golf carts are pretty slow, much like the game of golf itself. How fast can one go? Maybe 25mph if it’s all tricked out. On the other hand, this custom made golf cart powered by a 200hp Hayabusa engine can go as fast as 100mph.

Borderlands Belt Buckles: Straptrap

Borderlands Belt Buckles: Straptrap
You don’t need pants to play Borderlands – I haven’t played Borderlands 2 yet so I’m not sure about its pants requirements – but if you’re really into it you’ll want to wear eight pairs of pants just so you can rock these fan made belt buckles based on the game.
