A few months ago we checked out Love Hultén’s PE358, a retro handheld inspired by the Game Boy Advance SP. It seems like that got a lot of people’s attention, because Love is now offering the Pixel Vision, a limited edition production version of the PE358.
Unlike the PE358, the Pixel Vision hides the display cable and has a speaker grill.
The Japanese are some of the world’s biggest purveyors of weird food. They have some strange snacks, and the latest is a Kit Kat bar with hand placed gold leaf around the chocolaty goodness. Why gold-leafed Kit Kat bars?
Time is a flat rainbow with ThinkGeek’s Chromatic wall clock. It has 60 RGB LEDs and six ways to show time, all of which are less efficient but also more entertaining than clocks that are not on shrooms.
It seems there are drones of every shape and size on the market these days, and while the larger models are designed primarily for aerial photography, the smaller models are mostly just for fun. TRNDLabs makes a number of small drones, with the SKEYE Pico Drone being the smallest of the bunch, measuring just 0.87″
I always thought that Worf was one of the coolest characters on Star Trek: The Next Generation. I also liked the fact that he had a cool melee weapon called a Bat’leth. I always wondered how many Klingon’s chopped off their own fingers handling one of those wild curved bladed weapons.
iam8bit recently concluded Postcards from Space, an art exhibition featuring postcards for fictional locations from books, comics, video games, toys and sci-fi and fantasy shows and movies. Fortunately those of us who didn’t make it to the exhibit can get copies of the postcards from iam8bit’s online store.
Each of the 39 postcards measures 6″x 4″ and has imagery from a different artist.
Ok guys, Christmas is coming up and if you are lucky enough to have a lady in your life that is a big fan of Star Wars, check this out. This is something called a circle skirt, I don’t know what that means either, but it looks good on the model in the photos.
Not only does it look good on the ladies, it also has lightsabers all around it.
Man, I wish I had the kind of talent it takes to create a cool arcade cabinet like this. But at least I can live vicarously through them. This NASA themed arcade cabinet looks like it belongs on the space station or at the very least in some NASA break room somewhere.
This beautiful gaming cabinet was created by Imgur user scoodidabop of Paradox Arcade Systems.
A couple of months ago we checked out a free 3D template for a D20 die with Braille markers. If you’re interested in owning one but don’t have access to a 3D printer, check out 64oz Games’ Kickstarter fundraiser for a set of Braille polyhedral dice.
The set consists of Braille versions of the d4, d6, d8, d10, d12, d20 and percentile dice.
Last year we checked out an awesome Gundam model that was painted to look like it was an anime drawing. Transformers action figure painter LEK Custom Toys did the same trick to Takara Tomy Masterpiece Optimus Prime and Soundwave figures.
The two-dimensional effect in LEK’s work isn’t as convincing as the one in the aforementioned Gundam model, though the way these photos were taken didn’t help reinforce the illusion.
Watching TV shows and movies is a lot better with a few – just a few! – buddies around. But mobile devices, wireless Internet and online video services are making the activity obsolete. Genii aims to reconcile the tradition with modern technology with Cast.
Cast is like Chromecast in that it’s a mobile-focused video streaming device.
Last year, we checked out an awesome concept for a LEGO model of the Apollo 11 spacecraft and the Eagle Lunar Module. Here’s a great complementary concept from LEGO Ideas members saabfan and whatsuptoday – a model of the mission’s Saturn V rocket.
They are proposing two variants for their set: a basic set and a deluxe set.
Like many of you, Caleb Kraft is a fan of Fallout 4. Unlike many of you he’s a maker both in the game and in real life. When he saw the concept art for a new version of the series’ flaming sword he decided to make a fully-functioning replica.
You know you are doing parenting right when your kid knows how to sing the Imperial March. The Force is strong in this child.
Jonathan Liu is a father and GeekDad senior editor. He recently captured baby monitor footage of his two and a half year old daughter singing the ominous Imperial theme song from Star Wars while chilling in her crib.
It’s never too early to get them started on Star Wars.
