Guy Doesn’t Like Selfie Sticks, Invents “Selfie Arms”
A man in Japan named Mansun was embarrassed by the idea of using a selfie stick, as well he should be, so he invented a pair of extra-long “selfie arms.” No, these aren’t embarrassing at all.

Beautiful Big Screen Game Boy Concept: Game Boy XL
This Game Boy concept from German designer Florian Renner is sleek and beautiful. It re-imagines the classic handheld Game Boy for the modern world. It’s called the “game boy up1”. I like it. Hell, I wish I could buy it.

Foam Batman Replica is 6’2″ Tall: Holy Collectibles
There are plenty of Batman collectibles out there running the gamut from statues to action figures, but they are all rather smallish. If you want something life-size, check this out. This is a foam Batman statue that stands 6’2″ tall. The statue is based on the character from Batman: Arkham Knight and was created from digital files used in the game.

Give your current gen consoles a dash of Intellivision and Atari style with Toast’s wood veneers. They’re made of ash, bamboo, walnut or ebony and can be customized with laser engraving. Polygon got a sample for the PS4 and they say the panels can easily be installed in 20 minutes.

Soft Kitty, Warm Kitty, Little Ball of… Whaaaa!?

Soft Kitty, Warm Kitty, Little Ball of… Whaaaa!?
What is this you ask? It’s a cat with ten tentacles. I don’t know why either. It’s called the Orange Tabby Tentacle Kitty. Would make much more sense if it had nine tentacles and was called the Orange Tabby Nintacle Kitty, but maybe that’s just me. We could also call it Cathulhu or maybe Catapus.

Polycade Wall-mounted Arcade Machine: Worth a Thousand Games

Polycade Wall-mounted Arcade Machine: Worth a Thousand Games
I’ve seen arcade machines in all sorts of sizes and forms, but the Polycade is the first wall-mounted one I’ve seen. It has enough room for two player controls, a separate 4-way joystick and two buttons for classic systems and a 28″ LED TV.

GM Teams with U.S. Army on Hydrogen Chevrolet Colorado
One of the biggest concerns when it comes to military vehicles is their ability to operate quietly, while still offering up plentiful power. This poses a big challenge with traditional automotive drivetrains. Now, GM has teamed up with the U.S.

The Watch That Ripley Wore In Aliens Is Being Re-Issued

The Watch That Ripley Wore In Aliens Is Being Re-Issued
Remember that cool watch that Ripley wore in Aliens? It’s the Seiko Giugiaro 7A28-7000 and it is being reissued for a limited run. I always remembered that watch because it had a cool futuristic look. It was designed by famed car designer Giorgetto Giugiaro – who also designed the DeLorean DMC-12 among other things.

Nissan Turns Crossover into a Video Game Controller

Nissan Turns Crossover into a Video Game Controller
You probably read that title and thought, oh Nissan made a car that can control a driving game. That would be a flawed assumption because why use a parked Qashqai crossover to control a driving game when you could use said car to control a soccer video game instead?

Star Wars Design a Vinyl Stormtrooper Helmet: Rainbow Fett

Star Wars Design a Vinyl Stormtrooper Helmet: Rainbow Fett
Here’s a unique gem among this year’s extraordinarily monstrous flood of Star Wars toys and collectibles. Amusingly, it’s based on the series’ generic enemy. Made by Tara Toys, the Design a Vinyl Stormtrooper lets you personalize a small stormtrooper helmet. The helmet is about 8″ tall and comes with eight permanent markers, a sheet of stencils and a sheet of stickers.

Japanese Cat Suit Carries Your Cat in a Cat Pouch, Isn’t Weird at All

Japanese Cat Suit Carries Your Cat in a Cat Pouch, Isn’t Weird at All
The latest weird thing to come out of Japan is the Meowgaroo Jumpsuit – an outfit that makes the human inside look like a cat, complete with a fuzzy tail and ears on the hood. The hand mitts even have paw prints on them.

LEGO Creates Anti-LEGO Slippers

LEGO Creates Anti-LEGO Slippers
You have to hand it to the folks at LEGO. They know what the people want. The little people want actual LEGO sets. Well, so do the big people, but the adults also want protection from stepping on the painful bricks when walking around barefoot.

Fallout 4 Mod Lets You Get an Extra Companion… as Long as It’s Named Shaun

Fallout 4 Mod Lets You Get an Extra Companion… as Long as It’s Named Shaun
Just five days after Fallout 4 came out, Nexus Mods member BOTLANNER already came up with a mod for the hit RPG. It’s a fun and somewhat practical one too. The Creature Follower mod lets you summon a second companion.

Lego Millennium Falcon Racer: Way Faster Than 12 Parsecs

Lego Millennium Falcon Racer: Way Faster Than 12 Parsecs
The Millennium Falcon is the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy, so really, it should have a paint job that matches it’s speed. If Han Solo ever decided to start racing the old girl, he would need to make it look like a race car.

8-bit Menorah: Pixelated Miracle

8-bit Menorah: Pixelated Miracle
Hanukkah 2015 is just a few weeks away, but there’s still enough time to buy a new menorah if your old one is looking a little worn out. Being a total ’80s geek, I can think of no better way to celebrate the holiday than with this 8-bit Menorah. With a pixelated look from the base all the way through the blinky LED candles, it’s a great way to celebrate the tradition, and not have to worry about starting a fire. Just don’t expect these candles to burn all night long.

The RoadPrinter Paving Machine Rolls out Brick Roads Like Carpet

The RoadPrinter Paving Machine Rolls out Brick Roads Like Carpet
The RoadPrinter by RP Systems is a paving machine that literally lays down brick roads. It still needs some human intervention, but helps lay down brick roads much faster than traditional methods. Humans simply load bricks into the machine and it does the rest, carefully setting the bricks into position on the ground.
