The Women of Mad Max Fury Road Cosplay

The Women of Mad Max Fury Road Cosplay
One of the coolest movies I have seen in a very long time was Mad Max: Fury Road. The flick was action packed beginning to end and the visuals were just fantastic. As much as I love the original Mad Max film, I found Fury Road to be much, much better.

Pac-Man Bookshelf: Wokka Wokka Booka
I am a sucker for all things Pac-Man, but I think you would have to agree, this Pac-Man bookshelf from German maker Trebel f is a pretty awesome piece of furniture. I wouldn’t even put books in it.

Light L16 Camera Wants to Put DSLR Quality in Your Pocket
DSLRs and interchangeable lens mirrorless cameras take great pictures, but they’re still not very easy to tote around every day. So most of us who like to take photos on a regular basis end up resorting to our smartphones.

Terminator 2 Action Figure Will Shoot Other Action Figures in the Knee

Terminator 2 Action Figure Will Shoot Other Action Figures in the Knee
I am a big Terminator fan. One of the things I remember about Terminator 2 is how the kid who played John Connor was annoying and looked like a young Pee-Wee Herman. I also remember that Arnie wasn’t allowed to kill people so he shot lots of knees.

FDNY to Raise Funds with Marvel Firefighter Helmets at NYCC

Batmobile Slippers Geek Up Your Mornings

Batmobile Slippers Geek Up Your Mornings
Of all the Batman films that have been made over the years, the one some remember most is the 1989 Tim Burton directed flick with Michael Keaton as Batman. I’m more a Dark Knight man myself, but I do remember that Batmobile with the giant wings on the back from the 1989 flick.

Star-Lord Hooded T-Shirt and LED Mask

Star-Lord Hooded T-Shirt and LED Mask
First I have to say, as cool as the idea of a Star-Lord Hooded T-Shirt and Mask is, this just looks kinda creepy. It’s like Star-Lord’s evil twin has shown up from some hell-dimension. Any kids who looked up to Star-Lord are going to be terrified this Halloween.

This Zombie Containment Unit Is the Best Halloween Prop Ever

This Zombie Containment Unit Is the Best Halloween Prop Ever
Imagine you are a kid, all dressed up for Halloween and trick or treating in your neighborhood. You approach a house with a strange large box out front. It has a window. The door on the box bulges outward and inside you see a zombie freaking out, trying to escape.

Walking Robot Has Drone Scout: Banjo-Kazooiebot

Walking Robot Has Drone Scout: Banjo-Kazooiebot
A couple of weeks ago we checked out ETH Zurich Autonomous Systems Lab’s walking robot that had a drone launching pad. That combos nicely with one of the Lab’s latest projects: a similar pair working together to navigate unknown terrain.

Ghostbusters Floating Slimer: Ghost Rider

Ghostbusters Floating Slimer: Ghost Rider
If this Ghostbusters Floating Slimer doesn’t put a smile on your face there’s something wrong with you. It’s a simple enough toy. It just floats back and forth along a 15′ cord and plays the Ghostbusters theme song.

Nintendo Link’s Shield Backpack: Hylian High

Nintendo Link’s Shield Backpack: Hylian High
We’ve already seen a fan-made Hylian Shield backpack, but if you’d like to support the big N then ThinkGeek’s officially licensed Legend of Zelda bag is for you. It has a 15″x 17″ main compartment, a 14″x 10.5″ padded laptop compartment and several pockets for pens and other small items.

Sharp RoBoHoN is a Walking, Talking Robot Phone

Sharp RoBoHoN is a Walking, Talking Robot Phone
I’ve seen some strange gadgets out of Japan over the years, and the latest oddity is the Sharp RoBoHoN. It’s a robot that has a phone built in. It has the ability to make calls and check email over a LTE/3G connection.

DIY TV Remote Control: Shop Potato

DIY TV Remote Control: Shop Potato
Hack A Day member Hari Wiguna made a TV and set top box remote control for his dad, who finds it difficult to press the tiny buttons on the original remotes. You’d think it would be a simple matter to make such a ubiquitous device, especially since Hari put only the most used functions on the remote, but it turned out to be quite the challenge.
