Alien Facehugger Prop Replica Is Supremely Nasty

Alien Facehugger Prop Replica Is Supremely Nasty
Out of all of the stages of xenomorph development, I think the facehugger is the nastiest. This disgusting creature not only has eight creepy, crawly, boney legs, but a snake-like tail, and a gross mouth that’s ready to stick its tongue down your throat and implant its egg into your belly.

Blow Me Up Inflatable Lamp Is the Otto Pilot of Light Fixtures

Blow Me Up Inflatable Lamp Is the Otto Pilot of Light Fixtures
When you think about lighting fixtures, it’s pretty typical that they’re made out of some kind of rigid form. But this unusual light is actually made like a balloon. It’s sort of like that inflatable autopilot in the movie Airplane!,

Handmade Wooden Pinball Machines Feature Wonderful, Whimsical Illustrations
I’ve always loved playing pinball machines. I even have a classic 1990s Terminator 2 pinball machine in my basement. But not everyone has the spare cash or space needed to have a full-size pinball machine in their house.

Flying Spaghetti Monster Colander Perfect for Pastafarians

Flying Spaghetti Monster Colander Perfect for Pastafarians
When it comes to making pasta, there are few things I dislike more than watery tomato sauce. The trick is to make sure your noodles are properly strained to get out all the excess water before you mix them with your red gravy.

DIY Acoustic Levitator Lets You Float Objects in Mid-air
While most levitation is achieved with magnets, it’s also possible to suspend small objects in air using sound waves. Thanks to engineer Asier Marzo, you can even create your own acoustic levitator, which can float lightweight objects like water droplets, styrofoam beads, and even insects.

Retro-Bit RES+ NES Console Review: HDMI Adds Sharp Visuals to Classic Nintendo Games
These days, there are a number of ways to play classic Nintendo 8-bit games, from PC ROM emulators to Nintendo’s own NES Classic Edition console. But those methods take the original cartridges out of the mix.

GOGO Lantern Review: A Versatile Portable Light

GOGO Lantern Review: A Versatile Portable Light
The GOGO lantern is a new portable lamp that’s currently being funded over on Kickstarter. The product is just what it sounds like, a lantern that you can use on the go or at home. The GOGO has some cool features, with the big one being a solar panel on top to charge the lantern when you are out in the field.

Golden Girls Dorbz Figures: Thank You For Being a Dorbz

Golden Girls Dorbz Figures: Thank You For Being a Dorbz
The ’80s and ’90s brought us some of the most watched and funniest sitcoms of all time. After producers like Norman Lear broke ground in the ’70s, characters could be more realistic, with human flaws, and loads of snark and sarcasm.

Edifier S2000Pro Speaker Review: Amazing Sound in a Compact Package

Edifier S2000Pro Speaker Review: Amazing Sound in a Compact Package
There are numerous powered speakers on the market, but the vast majority of them make some compromises to provide integrated amplification. Not so with the Edifier S2000Pro series. These bookshelf-sized powered monitors are about as good as it gets when it comes to sound quality, volume, build quality, and versatility.

Marvel Battery Packs are Adorable, But Don’t Pack Super Power

Marvel Battery Packs are Adorable, But Don’t Pack Super Power
Power up your gadgets in the cutest way possible, with these adorable battery packs based on Marvel’s superheroes. They look a whole lot like Funko’s Dorbz figures, but each of these cartoony characters packs a 2,600 mAh battery inside.

Where the Wild Things Are Gets the Balloon Animal Treatment

Where the Wild Things Are Gets the Balloon Animal Treatment
Despite it being a little trippy, Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are is still one of my favorite books from my childhood. As our young protagonist Max enters the world of the Wild Things, he encounters a variety of wondrous and scary looking beasts, yet manages to win them over and become their king.

Hatsune Miku Keytar Bag: J-Pop Purse

Hatsune Miku Keytar Bag: J-Pop Purse
Japan is home to some wonderful creations. One of the more popular franchises of the past decade has to be Hatsune Miku, a fully digital J-Pop musician, whose vocals are created synthetically. The vocaloid singer’s voice has been featured in over 100,000 songs, has sold out digital concerts around the world, and even has her own GT series race car.

The Milton Bradley OMNI Was an 8-Track Tape Board Game

The Milton Bradley OMNI Was an 8-Track Tape Board Game
Boy, it’s been a really long time since I saw or heard an 8-track tape. These technological antiquities were insanely popular back in the 1960s and 1970s, but gradually went the way of the dinosaurs as they were replaced by more compact and longer-playing cassette tapes.

Flipside 4 Wallet Review: Upgrade Your Pocket

Flipside 4 Wallet Review: Upgrade Your Pocket
For years I have used wallets meant for the front pocket rather than the back. I hate sitting on a wallet all day. Not all compact wallets are equal, and out of all I have tried, the Flipside line has been my favorite.

Chewbacca Kong Climbs the Empire State Building

Chewbacca Kong Climbs the Empire State Building
It’s been awhile since there was a good King Kong movie. But I don’t think the solution is bigger and badder visual effects. I think the problem is Kong himself. The Planet of the Apes movies have cornered the market on CGI monkeys, so I think that the studios need to do something different for the next Kong reboot.

The Elbow Reinvents the Portable Cassette Player

The Elbow Reinvents the Portable Cassette Player
Somewhere in my basement, I have a box of old cassette tapes. Most of them aren’t store-bought ones, but custom made mixtapes that I created for myself, back in the days long before CD players, MP3s, and streaming media.
