If you have kids you know that they will climb all over anything. Furniture, playground equipment, you when you’re trying to watch TV… They are crazy balls of spazzy energy. Well, now you can give them a reason to climb all over you.
While you really should appreciate your dad 365 days a year, every June, we take a special day to celebrate dear old Dad. And when you get together with your pops this June 21, you better not be empty handed.
Earlier this year we checked out the Nabi Big Tabs, which are high end kid-friendly Android monitors that can have up to a 65″ 4K display. If you’re looking for a more affordable, portable or versatile alternative, Touchjet’s Pond pico projector seems like a good bet.
The Pond was funded by Indiegogo backers last year (it was called the TouchPico at the time).
Three years ago, we checked out the Locus, an expensive standing desk with a stool. Wayne Yeager’s LeanChair is another alternative to standing desks. Instead of letting you rest on your butt, it has a backrest and a footrest, allowing you to lean back while standing.
The LeanChair is tilted at just the right angle so you can still see straight ahead while relieving your legs of about 25% of your weight.
Earlier this year we checked out a LEGO building station on wheels that a father made for his son. Redditor thaitwin also built a LEGO station for his kids, but he opted to have base plates built right on to its surface.
Thaitwin removed the glass surface of an old coffee table and replaced it with a multi-level base made of scrap wood.
This weekend, developer Turn 10 Studios unveiled three custom Xbox One controllers, in time with Ford’s announcement that it will compete in the 2016 Le Mans. The company behind the Xbox-exclusive Forza Motorsport games themed each controller after one of Ford’s Le Mans cars from the 60s.
The blue controller is called 1965, after the year that Ford’s Shelby Daytona Coupe became the first American-made car to win at Le Mans’ GT class, placing 4th overall.
The black controller is the 1966, after the year the Ford GT won 1st, 2nd and 3rd at the 24-hour race.
Finally there’s the 1967, named after the year Ford defended it Le Mans title.
Turn 10 Studios showed off the controllers at Le Mans this weekend, and will put them on display once again this week at E3.
Rich kids have all of the greatest toys. These spoiled brats get anything they want. Like this miniature monster truck designed for kids. For real. It’s even powered by a four-cylinder Ford engine, and can reach speeds up to 25 miles per hour.
We have been talking about the 3Doodler pen since it first turned up on Kickstarter several years ago. This is sort of a mash up between a 3D printer and a hot glue gun. What it allows you to do is draw anything you can think of in full 3D rather than on flat paper.
One of my favorite movies to ever feature anything about Mars is the original Total Recall with Arnie. The remake sucked, but that original was fantastic ’80s fodder. I can’t think of Mars since that movie came out without thinking of Arnold with his eyeballs swelling out of his head before the air machine turned back on.
Astronomers and fans of that movie will want to get hands on this spinning 4.5-inch
UK store Smyths Toys jumped the gun and posted a few shots of the official LEGO Wall-E set on its website. The set is based on the LEGO Ideas submission of Pixar animator Angus MacLane. LEGO greenlit the idea last year, but as you can see it eventually made significant changes to Angus’ design to make the set more faithful to the movie.
Smyths says LEGO Wall-E has a flexible head, and you can open and close his hands and his torso.
Annihilate! Kill! Kill! Kill! Makeup artist Maria Malone made this hilarious and horrifying face – and neck – paint of the Martians from Mars Attacks!

This set of wooden D6 dice for your yard is the perfect decoration for any geek’s garden or yard. Sure, these aren’t D20s, but you can still have them in the front yard and make people roll to get in your house.
I don’t like fish. I think they look really gross. I certainly don’t like to eat them. Their little flapping mouths look like they want to eat me and the lack of teeth is the only thing holding them back.
Mike Johnson is a fan of The Goonies, and a fan of pinball machines. So naturally he wanted a Goonies themed pinball machine. So to celebrate the movie’s 30th anniversary, he made this custom made pinball machine.
