ASUS ROG GX700 Gaming Laptop Has Water-Cooling Dock: Bubble Butt

DIY Moon One RC Rover: Wall-E’s Sleazy Grandpa

DIY Moon One RC Rover: Wall-E’s Sleazy Grandpa
A couple of months ago, we checked out Sergey Grishchenko’s DIY scale model of the Curiosity rover. Michael Larkin’s Moon One is a very similar remote-controlled rover, but he optimized it for agility, maneuverability and mischief. Like Sergey, Michael opted to 3D print most of his toy’s non-electronic parts, with the exception of several aluminum parts and insulin syringes that he used as shock absorbers.

Animotus Shape-changing Navigation Device: Compass-nion Cube
Last March, the performing arts group Extant held a unique rendition of the novel Flatland. The installation was set in complete darkness inside a disused church. But the audience members were able to make their way around the set with the help of the Animotus, a haptic navigation device that points to the destination by changing its shape. Yale University researcher Adam Spiers designed and built the Animotus.

Death Star Kitchen Timer: The Ultimate Weapon in the Utility Drawer
Force Friday is behind us, but the cool Star Wars merch keeps on coming anyhow. One of my favorites so far is this Death Star Kitchen Timer.   Just turn the two hemispheres of the Death Star to the amount of time you need, and when it the timer hits zero, the ultimate weapon will be activated, destroying everything in its path.

Alcatel Onetouch 4G Car WiFi Hotspot: Is There Net Yet?
Some new cars have a built-in Wi-Fi connection over cellular data. But unless you’re willing to buy an entire car just for that feature, you’re better off with Alcatel Onetouch’s upcoming 4G Car WiFi mobile hotspot, which plugs into your car’s cigarette lighter. The 4G Car WiFi is compatible with micro SIM cards and provides Wi-Fi 802.11

Philips AmbiLux UHD TV Adds Ambient Light Using Pico Projectors: Ambelievable

Philips AmbiLux UHD TV Adds Ambient Light Using Pico Projectors: Ambelievable
Nowadays you can emulate Philips’ Ambilight technology on different TVs or monitors using third–party or custom alternatives. The old Ambilight tech that is.

The new system debuts in the AmbiLux, a 65″ 4K LCD TV with nine Ambilight pico-projectors at the back.

A couple of months ago, we featured Redditor edmcgowan’s DIY Millennium Falcon cockpit bed for his son. If you have more money than woodworking skills, you can still earn your child’s love with Pottery Barn’s officially licensed bed. The hardwood bed measures 108.25″x

Dark Knight Utility Belt Replica: for 34″ Waist Superheroes Only

Dark Knight Utility Belt Replica: for 34″ Waist Superheroes Only
I have seen all the Batman movies back to the Tim Burton era, but I don’t ever remember his utility belt being brown. I always remember it being black, but perhaps I am remembering wrong. No matter what color it is this DC Comics official Dark Knight utility belt replica is awesome. The buckle looks black, but is an antiqued gold.

Doctor Who Suspenders: Keep your Pants up Like a Time Lord

Doctor Who Suspenders: Keep your Pants up Like a Time Lord
When it comes to keeping your pants from falling down while running from Daleks, you can go belt or suspenders. Or as the Brits call them, braces. What we have here are purple suspenders that are patterned to match the ones worn by the 11th Doctor in a few episodes. That would be the Doc played by Matt Smith.

Acer Revo Build Modular Mini PC: Revo Stacko
Last year, Razer unveiled Project Christine, its concept for a user-friendly PC that has USB-style plug-and-play modules. Now Acer has unveiled the Revo Build M1-601, a more modest take on a modular PC. The Revo Build works a lot like Lenovo’s ThinkPad Stack peripherals, except this one has a mini PC as a base unit.

Killing Time Takes on a New Meaning with the Arachnophobia Timepiece
If you can’t stand spiders, you might want to pass on this creepy yet amazing spider-inspired timepiece called the Arachnophobia. It was created by luxury watchmaker MB&F, because why not? It basically looks like a giant mechanical spider that runs on the power of your soul.

R2-D2 Bento Box: May the Lunch Be with You

R2-D2 Bento Box: May the Lunch Be with You
If you are a fan of lunch, Star Wars, and R2-D2, we have a lot in common. My lunch box normally consists of left over plastic bags from Walmart, but I might have to upgrade to this R2-D2 bento box. If you have kids that like Star Wars, and hate bread crusts, this might be just the ticket.

A New King T-shirt Mashes Star Wars with The Sword in the Stone

A New King T-shirt Mashes Star Wars with The Sword in the Stone
Growing up, I was a big fan of old-school animated Disney movies. I also happened to be a big fan of Star Wars. This single shirt mashes up those ’80s loves of mine. It shows Luke Skywalker as a kid drawn in Disney animation style, and he’s pulling a lightsaber out of a stone just like Wart in The Sword in the Stone.

Parents Give Son’s Bedroom a Portal Makeover: You’ll Always Be Test Subject #1
When Randy Slavey’s son turned 13, the newly minted teenager asked his parents to remodel his kid-themed bedroom in the style of two of his favorite games, Portal and Portal 2. The elder Slaveys didn’t disappoint. Randy and his wife used many of the same tools and parts that we’ve seen in other Portal-themed bedrooms: paint, LEDs, mirrors, Portal merch and lots of love.
