Nanoarcade: A Tiny Arcade Cabinet on the Cheap

Space Invaders Cushion: Huggable Alien

Space Invaders Cushion: Huggable Alien
Space Invaders was my favorite game back in the day and was one of the first games to frustrate me. You all remember those gaming sessions where you end up accusing the game of cheating and tossing your joystick around the room.

Papercraft Millennium Falcon: She May Not Look Like Much But AAAAH PAPER CUT!
This tiny and insanely detailed Millennium Falcon was made completely from scratch. It enters hyperdrive by giving the universe a paper cut, thereby opening up space. It was made by Caleb Kraft, whose hands and eyes must be very tired.

For his latest project, he turned a 1981 Sharp VC-2300H portable VCR into a media center powered by the Raspberry Pi.

Z-Hunter Machetes are for Slicing, Dicing, and Chopping Zombies
The other day, I mentioned the M48 Tactical Survivor series and reckoned they would be great weapons for the inevitable zombie invasion. Some other weapons have surfaced that specifically say they are for killing the undead hordes.

Pac-Man & Ghost Pendant Lamps: Wakka Wakka Lighta
Classic gaming fans looking to spruce up their rooms might want to consider installing these clever pendant lamps, which have been made to look like Pac-Man and his ghostly nemesis Clyde. Each stained glass lamp is handmade by artist Midian Craftworks, and would look great hanging in a game room or even over a dining table – if your significant other approves of such geeky things hanging in your dining room.

Mega Man Bad Box Art Custom Action Figure: Mega Belly

Mega Man Bad Box Art Custom Action Figure: Mega Belly
Bad Box Art Mega Man is the opposite of Doom Guy. The joke character came from the infamously ugly North American box art of the first Mega Man game. To be more specific, he’s the middle aged version of the dude in that horrendous drawing.

Immersis Projection Mapping System: IllumiRoom 2.0
Last year, Microsoft Research made headlines with its IllumiRoom concept, which extends video from a console or media player to the walls and objects around the TV. A company called Catopsys is working on an similar but theoretically much better version of IllumiRoom called Immersis.

3D Printed Geeky Laughing Buddhas: What is the Sound of One Han Shooting?

3D Printed Geeky Laughing Buddhas: What is the Sound of One Han Shooting?
Tap into the force of Luck with Chris “muckychris” Milnes’ 3D printed geeky Budai statues, which swaps the jelly bellied deity’s head with characters from Star Wars and other sci-fi franchises. As much as I love Groot and Rocket’s two for one deal, I think Palpatine is the only one that fits seamlessly into the monk’s body.

Stargate Cufflinks: Travel with the Flick of Your Wrist
Stargates can transport you from one planet to another planet on the other side of the galaxy and now it looks like this technology has finally been shrunken down to cufflink size.

Anti-Paparazzi Clothing Makes You Photo-Proof
You and I may not be superstars, but you may still be interested in Anti-Paparazzi, since it will protect your anonymity and privacy. The concept clothing line would use highly reflective thread to reflect light from cameras and obscure your features by overexposing the image.

M48 Tactical Survival Series: Perfect for Zombie Killin’

M48 Tactical Survival Series: Perfect for Zombie Killin’
I think The Walking Dead’s Michonne has the right idea with her katana sword. It never runs out of ammo and can kill the undead with ease. The only downside to having a sword is that when you inevitably run up against evil humans bent on pillaging what you have, you have the literal knife at a gunfight.
