Pacific Rim 7-inch Gypsy Danger is Missing an Arm
If you are a fan of Pacific Rim, you will certainly recall the fight scene between Gypsy Danger and the Knifehead that ripped off its arm and killed one of the pilots. A couple new action figures have landed at ThinkGeek and the Gypsy Danger figure is missing an arm.

Doctor Who TARDIS Umbrellas: Whovian in the Rain
If you are looking an umbrella to keep you and your companions dry, you can’t go wrong with these Doctor Who TARDIS umbrellas. One features a repeating TARDIS pattern, while the other shows the TARDIS on an alien planet.

Bubo Robot Owl Replica from Clash of the Titans
As a kid, one of the best parts of the Clash of the Titans for me was the robot owl named Bubo. I wanted a toy of this guy so much, but sadly no one ever made one.

Metal Gear Solid V Maroon PS4 is Quite Fetching
I’m not the type to really care what color my game consoles are. I mean, if there were a choice other than black for a PS4, say a nice blue or red, I’d opt for something else.

Deer Supplement Their Vegetarian Diets with Birds!?
If you read our site much, you know we post stories about weird science stuff on occasion. Most of that stuff is cool and doesn’t creep me out at all, unless we are talking about robots that look like Hector from Saturn 3.

Real Life Portal Made with Kinect: You Are the Test Subject
Fans who make Portal recreations usually resort to mirrors and simple perspective tricks to simulate the game’s space-warping effect. But software designer Roland Smeenk’s setup actually creates windows to another space. You still can’t walk into them though.

Avengers Marvel Legends Action Figures: Thanos, Assemble!

TARDIS Shelving System: The Doctor’s Library
This TARDIS shelving system from Etsy seller birdsmouth is a functional shelving system, but not so much a functional TARDIS. I like the fact that it looks like the TARDIS materialized directly into your wall though.

Selfie Remote Is Just What It Sounds Like

Selfie Remote Is Just What It Sounds Like
It’s official. We have become so lazy that we even need a remote to take selfies. I guess the selfie stick didn’t make things easy enough for those who like to take duck-lipped selfies. I guess you could always ask others to take your photo if you are lazy and want a better looking image, but that may lead to your handset being stolen.

Last month Redditor Olivier-FR garnered tons of karma and Internet love when he shared his custom made Millenium Falcon quadcopter. Now he strikes back with a TIE Interceptor build. Olivier used the same materials and quadcopter parts that he used on his Millenium Falcon.

Oaxis inkCase E-ink iPhone 6 Case: Black in Back
A couple of years ago we checked out the Popslate, an iPhone 5 case with an E-ink screen. Turns out it can only display images, which while still cool doesn’t make it that useful. The inkCase for the iPhone 6 on the other hand promises to display a variety of information on its E-ink screen.

Plantable Coffee Cup Needs Seed Money

Plantable Coffee Cup Needs Seed Money
Drinking coffee is so wasteful when you consider how many people order a coffee everyday and then throw their cups away. But there may be a better way to drink coffee and not harm the environment.

X-Carve 3D Carving Machine: Cut All the Things

X-Carve 3D Carving Machine: Cut All the Things
One of the coolest companies out there for the DIY and Maker scene has got to be Inventables. Based here in my home town of Chicago, they not only sell a wide variety of materials and equipment for 3D printing, milling and laser cutting, they also make some gear themselves.
