Every time we see action figures or merchandise from the series Firefly, it never includes River or the doctor. I’m not sure why, I didn’t care much for the Doc, but I always liked River the best because you never knew what she would do.
Are you a nerd with a friend? C’mon that’s not such a rare thing. I just found some necklaces that you and your friend can wear together. Poke balls!
These cute friendship necklaces come from TrinketySlot and you can get them in Poke Ball and Master Ball versions.
Earlier this year we checked out Ed Zarick’s Playbox, a laptop that contains both the Xbox One and the PS4. That was supposed to be a one-off, but Ed got a lot of requests for the console combo that he decided to add it to his list of products on sale.
Ed says he couldn’t find enough 22″ Vizio monitors, so for the PlayBox Mk.
I used to play a lot of Super Mario Bros. back in the day, but it was never one of my favorite games. It was just the game all my friends wanted to play. Mario Kart, on the other hand, I loved and would dominate some bitches.
Artist Christopher Cayco came up with an art project earlier this year that involved drawing all 721 Pokemon live on the Internet. Gotta draw them all! And after 21 days and 132 hours of work, he finished his project earlier this month.
In this this new commercial for Statoil gas stations in Norway, a construction worker uses an 8.5-ton excavator to prepare a hot dog and feed it to his friend. Safely.
This takes some serious skill. I’m not saying I couldn’t do it.
Last year, we checked out Rainy Day Instruments’ C-3PO electric guitar. Now the Etsy shop also has a Darth Vader guitar. As with the Threepio guitar, its Darth Vader body is actually the classic Kenner Collector’s Case.
You want this guitar.
A few days back, I talked a bit about a giant articulated action figure that looked like Link from The Legend of Zelda. That action figure was 20-inches-tall, and you might have thought – where’s the Zelda to go with Link?
I’ve said it many times: Guardians of the Galaxy was easily my favorite Marvel flick. It was funny and action packed, which can be hard to pull off. If you are a fan of the flick and want to show your geeky fandom, a couple new charm bracelets are available.
The bracelets come in a version with charms for each Guardians team member or a version with lots of Groot.
I’m not much of a pet person, and because of that it’s rather hard for me to understand how attached people get to pets to the point that they treat them like kids. So the idea that someone could get attached to a robotic pet is even harder to comprehend for me.
Most wheelchairs have one major disadvantage. Like the Daleks of old, stairs stop them in their tracks. Not the Scalevo. This electric wheelchair is capable of climbing and descending stairs thanks to a set of tank-like tracks that can be lowered to keep the user level at all times.
No ramps are needed with this chair.
Custom lighting maker Luke Kelly came up with a clever way to turn anything that makes light shine through into a decorative lamp. Luke’s Baselamp is a dimmable LED light pointed upwards. Just place a transparent or translucent object over the LED and you have a one-of-a-kind lamp.
Baselamp has a walnut or bamboo case, a 4W LG LED light, a polycarbonate diffuser, a touch-sensitive dimmer switch and an aluminum heatsink.
If you don’t have patience for overly dramatic product pitches, skip the video.
Pledge at least $99 (USD) on Kickstarter to receive a Baselamp as a reward.
My Hector fears spawned by ’80s horror/sci-fi flicks aside, robots are really cool. DARPA really wants robots to come to the mainstream for all sorts of uses from carrying heavy gear for the military to saving people in environments too hazardous for humans to work in.
