If you grew up in the ’80s playing the original Super Mario Bros. game on the Nintendo, you will know that gobbling the right mushrooms can make plumbers turn into a giant. ThinkGeek has a new cake pan that lets you cook your own video game mushrooms, and they too will make you grow if you eat too many.
There are already lots of Raspberry Pi cases – we’ve even featured a few 3D printed decorative cases – but if you’re looking for something that’s affordable, durable and customizable check out Tom Murray’s SmartiPi. It will come with a LEGO-compatible 6×10 removable top plate.
Silence is golden, duct tape is silver… or orange, red, blue, or white. Duct tape can fix just about anything and is one of the best inventions ever. A artist named Rianna from DuctTapeDesigns has created some very cool art using duct tape as the medium.
Japan’s arcades will soon have a game that requires a more hands-on approach. Sega’s Eederu Sunaba is an augmented reality game that uses sensors and projectors to display virtual landscapes and animals on a sandbox. The landscapes and animals instantly appear based on what you build with the sand.
Incoming Physics student Ollie Baker used the money he got from his Arkwright Scholarship to transfer the brains of a Sony Nex-5 into a Konica Auto S3, the latter being an analog rangefinder from the 70s.
What’s your favorite subreddit?
As for me, well, there are two sections on Reddit that I always make sure to check out whenever I’m online. One of those is /aww, because what’s not to love about a forum that almost always make you go “aww!”
We’ve seen an Xbox One laptop mod before, but if you’re looking for a more customizable design check out Ed Zarick’s Xbook One. Ed has been modifying Xbox 360 consoles for a while now, and he says he’s significantly improved his build process for the Xbook One.
People have slipped, tripped, and fallen down flights of stairs while taking a selfie. But even those stories aren’t enough to discourage hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of people from taking a selfie or two or more a day.
In pencil and paper RPGs, players are usually playing as character that are much, much cooler than themselves. It’s usually a sorcerer with some demonic heritage, a 200-year-old vampire with the ability to manipulate darkness, or a genetically altered super soldier with a gun that fires .75 caliber rockets.
Poop stinks. Most of the time, it’s tolerable – it is your own poop, after all. But sometimes, it downright stinks and makes you want to gag. Maybe it was indigestion, or maybe it was something you ate.
ColorWare usually promotes its services with boldly colored samples, but this time they’re taking a more laid back approach. Perhaps too laid back. Its MacBook Air Retro is a maxed out 13″ MacBook Air with a color scheme and accents inspired by the classic Apple IIe and a price tag inspired by Upworthy’s headlines.
I’m just going to come out and say it: Tom Ford is not going to cosign this, and Daniel Craig won’t be wearing it in the next James Bond film. In fact, the Selfie Sombrero is probably Acer’s worst product of all time, and this photo on the left is only slightly less embarrassing than the one of Sean Connery in Zardoz on the right.
The problem with a jetpack is that when someone clips it with a lightsaber, it’s pretty useless and you will fall into a Sarlacc pit. Still, until that happens, they can help you get around. Now you can make your own, just like the Z-6 jetpack Boba Fett wore before everything went so horribly wrong.
