The NES30 appears to be a reskin of 8Bitdo’s FC30 gamepad, which – you guessed it – looks like the Famicom controller.
Black Milk’s upcoming Princesses & Villains collection features some of Disney’s female characters. And the 101 Dalmatians for some reason. Frankly I’m surprised Disney approved to have their children’s characters juxtaposed with adult clothing.

Thermal cameras can be used for all sorts of things from monitoring body temperature for coaches to finding thermal leaks in your home. The catch is that most thermal cameras cost $1000 or more. During CES 2014 this past January, Flir, a leader in thermal cameras, unveiled a cheaper thermal camera accessory for the iPhone that looks very slick.
Last month we saw a Game Boy Pocket’s case and buttons used to make a portable console emulator based on the Raspberry Pi. Then we saw a similar system packed in a 3D printed case. Recently a man named John Hassl showed that it’s possible to make the same system using an original Game Boy case and buttons.
A Cyberman! Run! No, wait. Eat! This “Nightmare in Silver” will only give you a nightmare of a stomach ache after you eat too much frosting. This Cyberman doesn’t want to kill and delete life everywhere, it just wants to get in your belly.
Meet Steve Parker. I mean Peter Rogers. Maybe Peter Parker Rogers. Anyway, this is what you get when Captain America and Spider-Man are merged as one. It is an entirely new and epic character/costume. I have to say it looks pretty sweet.
