Batman Imposter Suicide Squad Joker Variant Figure: Jokerman

Batman Imposter Suicide Squad Joker Variant Figure: Jokerman
I was really into Batman growing up, but I never really liked The Joker, at least not until Heath Ledger’s portrayal in The Dark Knight. For fans of the current Affleck/Leto era, you might like this Batman Imposter Suicide Squad Joker Variant Figure from Hot Toys. I haven’t seen Suicide Squad, but apparently, this mashup didn’t actually happen in the film.

Altered: Nozzle Faucet Saves Water with Mist

Altered: Nozzle Faucet Saves Water with Mist
Humans really can’t help but waste water. Some of that is due to the fact that we are wasters, but a lot of it comes down to the design of the faucet as well. The Altered: Nozzle is a great alternative to the conventional faucet. This is a special faucet that allows you to save up to 98% of the water you would normally use.

Star Wars BB-8 Waffle Maker: The Forks Awaken

Star Wars BB-8 Waffle Maker: The Forks Awaken
I like Star Wars, and I like tasty breakfast treats, so the BB-8 Waffle Maker sounds like the perfect product to me. It’s just like other waffle makers, only instead of being round with little cubbies to hold syrup, this one makes waffles that look like BB-8 from The Force Awakens. It has non-stick cooking plates on both sides and an on/off switch so you can just leave it plugged in and ready to cook in case of a waffle emergency.

These Swarming Robots Can Avoid Collisions with Each Other
Score another victory for robot-kind. A system which coordinates swarms of robots to avoid colliding with one another has been developed by a team at Georgia Tech’s GRITS Laboratory. The Safe Swarm Robotics system works by adding minimally invasive safety controllers to the robots, and it can prevent collisions in a large groups of robots that are working together.

Watching This PS3 Melt Is Oddly Soothing

Watching This PS3 Melt Is Oddly Soothing
What to do with that old PS3 that is collecting dust? You could give it to a friend, sell it, use it as a doorstop, or burn that sucker and watch in amazement as it melts before your eyes. That’s what YouTube channel Let’s Melt This recently did.

Disney Almost Built a Real-World Myst Island

Disney Almost Built a Real-World Myst Island
Back in the day when I graduated from college the very first thing I did after getting my very first paycheck was run down to Best Buy and purchase a 3DO. It was awesome for the time and the very first video game I played on that console was Myst. That game was beautiful, mysterious, and incredibly frustrating.

This Steel D20 Could Literally Kill the Demogorgon

This Steel D20 Could Literally Kill the Demogorgon
If you have spent any amount of time playing Dungeons & Dragons or any other fantasy role-playing game that involves dice, you know the D20. This 20-sided die is the one that you go to when shiz gets real and you have only a slight chance of killing the Demogorgon. Normally this die is made of plastic just in case a nerd rages and throws it at the balls of another nerd during the game.

Cyclone Kit Lets You Build a Roller Coaster on Your Desk

Cyclone Kit Lets You Build a Roller Coaster on Your Desk
Roller coaster enthusiasts are going to love this construction kit. The Cyclone is a 1:48-scale roller coaster that you can build yourself and put on your desk. Just because. Do you really need a reason? If it was a pre-built model, it wouldn’t be nearly as fun, so it is very cool that you can build this yourself.

Zubits Shoe Closures Replace Knots with Magnets
We don’t all have Back to the Future sneakers yet, with self tying shoelaces, but Zubits may be the next best thing right now. This little doodads are magnetic shoe closures that easily snap together so that you don’t have to worry about your laces. They let the wearer quickly put on or remove a pair of shoes without having to tie the laces.

Darth Vader Simon: The Colorful Side of the Force

Darth Vader Simon: The Colorful Side of the Force
Remember Simon, that early electronic game where you have to memorize the colored lights and repeat the pattern? You probably never would have gone back to this game, except for one reason. There is a Star Wars version now.

Boston Dynamics’ Atlas Humanoid Robot Balances on One Foot
Despite years of trying, humanoid robots still have problems staying upright, especially in unusual situations, but they are making some progress. Check out this video showing Boston Dynamics’ Atlas robot balancing on one foot on the edge of a plywood board about 0.8

Darth Vader Sports Bra Supports the Empire

Darth Vader Sports Bra Supports the Empire
I think if Darth Vader had promised Luke something other than power, he might have come over to the Dark Side. I mean if Vader had said, “Come to the Dark Side, we have boobies.” Luke might have had a tough decision to make. Speaking of boobies, sports bras are normally rather tame and boring, but this racerback lets ladies show off their Death Stars and their geeky side at the same time. 

This SNES Micro Was Sculpted from Clay, Plastic and a Raspberry Pi

This SNES Micro Was Sculpted from Clay, Plastic and a Raspberry Pi
I played the heck out of the Super Nintendo back in the day. If you want to get in on some classic emulation in a package much smaller than the original SNES, this is for you.

This Beer Mug Won’t Block the TV When You Drink

This Beer Mug Won’t Block the TV When You Drink
There’s nothing better than a cold beer while you are watching your favorite TV show, except that when you raise your mug to drink, your beer can block the TV screen. It’s a real first world problem.
