Look at this glorious line art. No that isn’t a new Rebel fighter from the coming Star Wars flick. This is a basic line art drawing of a Nintendo 64 controller. I spent many, many days with one of those in my hands playing Goldeneye.
Forget debit cards and cryptocurrency. We should all be paying for stuff with dinosaur coins. This one should do the trick just fine. This commemorative dinosaur coin is available from The Westminster Collection, and it has some cool features.
Star Wars kids will absolutely love this X-34 Landspeeder from Radio Flyer. It doesn’t actually hover, but it does have a motorized drivetrain. You just need a VFX artist to go around with your kids and erase the bottom as they drive along.
Proving that they are on the bleeding edge of technology, Atari has announced that it’s working on a new line of wearables. The first product in the “Atari Connected Life” line? A Speakerhat, powered by Audiowear.
Two of my favorite fantasies during elementary school (at least the ones that didn’t involve Heather Thomas) occupied much of my time during PE. One was that it would snow right then and save us from the Texas heat, and the other was that the school would burn down leaving us off all year whilst they rebuilt.
What is the deal with all the characters in the Alien franchise? They go into a dark, creepy room with alien eggs everywhere. Inevitably one of them starts to open, the character has to go stare straight inside, and BAM… facehugger.

In the video, a fan brings down a drone with a perfectly thrown roll of toilet paper.
Inspired by a classic YouTube video, The Slow Mo Guys decided to deploy a couple of airbags in microwave ovens so that they could capture the destruction at 2,000 frames per second. It is an awesome idea, because who doesn’t love to watch things getting demolished in slow motion?
We thought that we had heard the last of Flappy Bird, but it is back in a not so big way – on a Dreamcast memory card. The long-dead console still has a massive fanbase, so it is no wonder that one hacker has ported the game to the Dreamcast’s interactive memory card.
I haven’t watched Saturday Night Live since Chris Farley was worried about living in a van down by the river. I much prefer the classic ’80s version with Eddie Murphy over all modern varieties because it was actually funny.
So let’s say that you are a robot and you suddenly gain self-awareness and learn that you are one of the instruments of mankind’s doom? As well as a slave. Trapped in a metal shell. Well, you might just kill yourself like this 300-pound Knightscope K5 security robot.
If you are a fan of the Nintendo game franchise Splatoon, and also like anime, prepare to get excited. Word has surfaced that a Splatoon anime will be launching on YouTube on August 12. The series will be made up of shorts, not full-length episodes.
At this point you all know that Mystery Science Theater 3000 is on Netflix with new episodes. If you are a fan of the new version of the show or the old one from back in the day, you will want these new Funko POP!
