Pressure Gauge Modded to Measure Internet Usage: Steamtest
Network operations supervisor Ed Konowal spends a lot of time looking at graphs and other data on his monitors. To switch things up, Ed wanted to connect his job with something tangible, so he made a bandwidth gauge out of a 20th century steam pressure gauge. Ed wrote a Python program and loaded it to a Raspberry Pi to gather SNMP data from the network’s router every 10 seconds.

Wesley Crusher Dice Bag: Not Standard Starfleet Issue
This Wesley Crusher dice bag represents what I would have liked to see happen to him on the show. Meaning that some alien should have carved him up and stuffed him into his own non-regulation shirt.

Noonee Bionic Pants Help You Sit and Squat
Bionic pants. Yes, they actually exist. They will let you jump like Mario, lift heavy loads like Donkey Kong. And unfortunately, make you look like a dork. Anyway, these pants don’t really let you do anything superhuman.

Nintendo 3DS Homebrew Channel Won’t Need Flash Cart or Play Pirated Games: Mobile Unicorn

Nintendo 3DS Homebrew Channel Won’t Need Flash Cart or Play Pirated Games: Mobile Unicorn
Thanks to a number of exploits, the Nintendo DS had a healthy homebrew scene. But the exploits also led to one of the most convenient forms of video game piracy: flash cartridges, or flash carts. Thankfully, homebrew fans could be in for a treat, because hacker Smealum is working on a homebrew channel for the Nintendo 3DS using an exploit that isn’t enough to play pirated 3DS games. The image above was shared on Twitter by programmer Gerald McAlister, who is working on the menu for Smealum’s homebrew channel. Helping @smealum initiate the #3DShomebrew scene by working on the 3DS homebrew menu!

Guardians of the Galaxy Concept Art Shows Alternate Rocket & Groot

Guardians of the Galaxy Concept Art Shows Alternate Rocket & Groot
Guardians of the Galaxy is one of the best Marvel movies that I have ever seen. It was even cooler for me because I had never heard of the franchise until the film was announced. I think Rocket and Groot turned out to be very cool in the film, even if they were a bit cutesy.

Kirk and Spock Sock Monkeys: Where No Foot Has Gone Before
These are the voyages of the Starsock Monkeyprise… These Kirk and Spock sock monkeys are Kirk and Spock like you have never seen them before. I just feel sad for them because there is no McCoy to complete the trio.

Halo Mod Puts Nicolas Cage’s Face All over the Place
I am actually a fan of Nic Cage, though I will readily admit you never know what you are getting with one of his movies it could be awesome or it could be a cheese fest that makes you regret the money spent on a B-movie rental.
