Dungeons and Dragons Cake: More Like Dungeons and Diabetes

Dungeons and Dragons Cake: More Like Dungeons and Diabetes
Dungeons and Dragons fans will be disappointed that they never had a birthday cake like this one made for them. It’s a dragon laying on an ancient spell book, with it’s tail twisted around a bright blue D20 die.

Star Wars Imperial Seal Bookends: Knowledge is Power. UNLIMITED POWER

Star Wars Imperial Seal Bookends: Knowledge is Power. UNLIMITED POWER
These Imperial Seal bookends are definitely the simplest Star Wars-themed bookends we’ve featured so far, but no self-respecting Emperor is going to be caught using AT-AT bookends. In fact, I don’t think the Emperor needs bookends at all.

Sony Projector Gets Frickin’ Laser Beam

Sony Projector Gets Frickin’ Laser Beam
Somebody needs to get a hold of Doctor Evil quickly and let him know that his evil lair needs a new projector for the media room. Sony has announced that it is now shipping the world’s first 3LCD projector with a laser light source.

Marshall Monitor Headphones Review: Studio Sound for Your Ears

Marshall Monitor Headphones Review: Studio Sound for Your Ears
When listening to music or movies on your computer or mobile device, nothing beats a good pair of headphones. And while the market is flush with inexpensive earbuds, they often make me long for better sound quality.

TableConnect Mirrors iOS & Android Devices on a 60″ Touchscreen: Immobile Device

TableConnect Mirrors iOS & Android Devices on a 60″ Touchscreen: Immobile Device
About three years ago, I talked about Table Connect, a 58″ touchscreen display that mirrors the screen of an iPhone. Or not. It turns out that the display we saw in the video wasn’t even a prototype; the “demo video” we saw was made using special effects.

Star Wars Skinny Ties: The Hipsters Strike Back

Star Wars Skinny Ties: The Hipsters Strike Back
I must confess something. One of the reasons I work for myself is so I never have to wear a tie to work again. Even if ties can be hip, I just can’t stand having that noose tied around my neck all day.

Neil deGrasse Tyson’s Punch-Out!!: This Would Probably be the World’s Hardest Game

Neil deGrasse Tyson’s Punch-Out!!: This Would Probably be the World’s Hardest Game
Pauline Acalin mashed up the Neil deGrasse Tyson reaction meme with Nintendo’s classic boxing game Punch-Out!! to create this funny print. Can you imagine what physics boxing would be like? Chess boxing would be a walk in the park compared to that.

LEGO Mecha Charizard: Poké Kaiju

LEGO Mecha Charizard: Poké Kaiju
I’m not sure if Flickr member Zane_Houston intended to make a reference to Mechagodzilla, but that bad dude immediately came to mind when I saw Zane’s LEGO Mecha Charizard. Mega Evolution? Pfff. I think Mecha Evolution would be way better.

Atomium Concept Turns 2D Drawings into 3D Edibles

Atomium Concept Turns 2D Drawings into 3D Edibles
With few exceptions, 3D printers can’t be used to print edible things, but wouldn’t it be extremely cool if we could one day print whatever food we can imagine using 3D printers? That’s the idea behind the Atomium.

Wearable Mosquito Nets Look Silly, But They’ll Keep the Bugs Away

Wearable Mosquito Nets Look Silly, But They’ll Keep the Bugs Away
Did you know that mosquitoes inject an anesthetic into your skin, so you won’t feel a thing when they finally take that bite? When that wears off, the itching and wave upon wave of annoyance begins.

R2-D2 Multi-Console Game System Surfaces on Etsy: MOD2-D2

R2-D2 Multi-Console Game System Surfaces on Etsy: MOD2-D2
Sure, the PS4 and Xbox One (or “XBone” as we like to call it around here) are coming out in just two months, so the idea of buying an Xbox 360 or PS3 doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to someone like me.

MIT SkyCall Uses Drones as Tour Guides

MIT SkyCall Uses Drones as Tour Guides
Nowadays, we often hear about unmanned aerial vehicles aka UAVs or drones in the news as next generation weapons of war. The researchers at MIT’s SENSEable City Lab want to dispel that notion and show people that this new technology can be used in more positive ways.

littleBits Modular Magnetic Electronics Kits: No Solder, No Problem

littleBits Modular Magnetic Electronics Kits: No Solder, No Problem
A few months ago I talked about a Kickstarter project called the LightUp, an electronics kit for kids and newbies. Instead of wires or solder, LightUp uses magnets to connect the modules together. It turns out that there’s already a very similar product out on the market.

Watch a Lifetime Go By in Five Minutes

Watch a Lifetime Go By in Five Minutes
What can happen in a lifetime? A lot, I’m sure, with a couple of “once-in-a-lifetime” moments thrown in there for good measure. Anthony Cerniello recently went to his friend Danielle’s family reunion, where he brought along still photographer Keith Sirchio.

Smart Syringe Turns Blood Red to Indicate That It’s Been Used

Smart Syringe Turns Blood Red to Indicate That It’s Been Used
Every year, many diseases are transmitted between people because some practitioners use unsterile or reused syringes to administer injections, sometimes unknowingly. Data from the World Health Organization indicate that almost 40% of the annual 40 billion injections being administered worldwide use these dirty syringes.

Socks of Catan: A Game Is Afoot

Socks of Catan: A Game Is Afoot
People really seem to go crazy for the Settlers of Catan game. It is a fun game, but how big of a fan are you? Are you willing to wear socks with hexagonal land tiles printed all over them?
