Ember Temperature-adjustable Mug: Thermostat for Drinks

Ember Temperature-adjustable Mug: Thermostat for Drinks
Most mugs and bottles can keep a drink’s temperature for hours, but the new Ember mug can actually change the temperature of its contents. And I thought the self-stirring mug was magical. This 350mL mug uses separate cooling and heating elements to change – and maintain – the temperature of its contents.

Hovalin 3D Printed Acoustic Violin: Filament Section

Hovalin 3D Printed Acoustic Violin: Filament Section
Back in April we checked out a 3D printed violin that looked more like a Predator’s weapon than a musical instrument. But 3D printing isn’t just about making new physical forms. The technology can be tuned for very practical purposes as well, as exhibited by violin maker Hovalin.

DeLorean Time Machine Cake: Hover Converted Dessert
London-based Tattooed Bakers have wowed us before with their Maleficent and zombie horse cakes, but they went all out for Back to the Future day. The dessert masters made a DeLorean time machine cake that looks more like a toy than something edible.

Fan Absorbs Capcom’s Powers, Remakes Mega Man in Super Mario Maker
Super Mario Maker is famous for its players’ punishing – and sometimes unbeatable – levels, but it’s also become a way for fans to pay homage to non-Mario games. Here’s one such example, an approximation of the first Mega Man game by YouTuber KHace.

Star Wars VII Kylo Ren Moleskine Notebook is Perfect for Imperial Musings
The last time I thought about a Moleskine notebook was in high school – when my art teacher wanted me to buy one for sketching. I remember the plain black notebooks boring, but this cool new Limited Edition Star Wars VII Lead Villain notebook isn’t.

Behold the cutest little Star Wars bluetooth speakers in this galaxy or any other. Judge them by their size do you? Well don’t. They can crank up the volume, despite their size. You can choose from goofy looking versions of Boba Fett, Chewbacca, Darth Vader, or Captain Phasma.

Futuristic Raspberry Pi Desk Computer: PiDesk
Here’s a fun project that uses two Raspberry Pi units. Frederick Vandenbosch made his PiDesk as his entry to Element 14’s Sci Fi Your Pi contest. The desk has a Raspberry Pi 2 B running Ubuntu MATE, while the futuristic furniture’s hidden controls are powered by a Raspberry Pi B+.

Super Mario Boo Ghost Planter: For Fire Flowers

Super Mario Boo Ghost Planter: For Fire Flowers
This Super Mario Boo Ghost Planter will look awesome in your home. I would put a Piranha Plant in it. Or some vine that will let you climb into the clouds. It’s pretty adorable. The only problem that I see with this Boo Ghost planter is that your plant might take on the characteristics of Boo, meaning that when you look at it, it will freeze and not grow.

Japanese Arcades Get RealDrive Arcade Racing Game

Japanese Arcades Get RealDrive Arcade Racing Game
Growing up when I went to the arcade, I gravitated towards the driving games. I played the crap out of Pole Position and any other racing game I could get my mitts on. Only a few years later, driving games sort of fell out of popularity and they left the arcade sticking me with nothing but fighting games.

Build-a-Bear Workshop to Shock Wallets in 2016 with Pikachu Stuffy
Up until she turned 10, my daughter was all about the stuffed animals. Apparently 10 is the age where stuffed animals become stuff for babies. Before that time, we were in the Build-a-Bear workshop at the mall so frequently that the girls working the counter knew her by name.
