Growing up, my favorite Star Wars characters were Luke Skywalker and R2-D2. In addition to being incredibly versatile, R2 seemed to have more to say with all his beeps and boops than the other characters that had actual words to say.
Yes, gearheads, FIAT 500 Perfume is a thing. It doesn’t smell like new car or even a car in general, but it does come in a very cool perfume bottle which looks like the front end of the iconic FIAT 500, so it should look cool on your desk right next to your bottle of Sex Panther.
It’s pretty cool as far as perfume bottles go, and comes in both men’s and women’s fragrances.
If you discover that you have a mouse in your home, you don’t mess around with dinky little traps. You need a trap that shoots a volley of arrows at that little sucker. Turnah81 has made just such a mouse killer.
I’ve often thought that in his day Edgar Allan Poe must have been whatever his generation called a goth. He had very dark ideas, and probably creeped out generations of old-timey people with thoughts of pits and sealing people into walls and whatnot.
Fallout 76 is here, but there’s a big divide among fans. Some like this new take on the franchise, while others feel disappointed, even betrayed. Many wanted a simple new Fallout game, not a new version that does something different.
Japanese toy maker Takara Tomy has teamed up with Casio to make a very cool watch and watch holder combo. Casio Japan has introduced this special edition G-Shock x Transformers DW-6900TF and it is amazing. This set is being released to celebrate 35 years of G-Shock and the 35th anniversary of Transformers in 2019.
You get a watch with Optimus Prime’s color scheme of red and blue, along with a transformable Optimus Prime figure that doubles as a watch holder.
You can’t have a tiny LEGO concert without a LEGO grand piano. Well, good news. Someone has created a concert grand piano out of LEGO. And it’s not just a static model either. This LEGO grand piano actually works.
This mini-musical masterpiece was designed and built by LEGO Ideas member, SleepyCow AKA Donny Chen and is made of 2,798 pieces.
Fallout 76 hasn’t exactly torn up the world with positive reviews, but Bethesda is working on fixing some of the issues. We assume they can’t make it an offline single player game for gamers who hate online titles, but we can dream.
If there’s one thing we can rely on Japan to provide us geeks with, it’s some very strange stuff. Take, for example, this action figure that transforms from a masked samurai warrior into a toilet. Yep.
Back in the day, a D&D session required nothing but a big bag of dice, a few geeks, and a surface to roll those dice on. That’s still how most people probably play the game, but a Kickstarter campaign has turned up for something called TableTop Tokens.
I am so glad that no one has remade, rebooted, or changed the gender in Back to the Future. These movies should be left alone. If they did reboot it they would likely feel the need to give us some new versions of the time-traveling DeLorean.
Bad news for some folks in the robotics business, but great news for mankind. Google is shutting down its SCHAFT robotics unit. This means that humans just got a longer lifespan. The apocalypse may not be canceled, but it is certainly delayed for now.
After failing to find a buyer, the SCHAFT robotics unit will be shut down.
Can you believe that there have been SIX Sharknado movies already? Count ’em! Six terrible movies. They’re all about being completely terrible with over-the-top shark action and horrible CGI. But for some reason that I will never understand, they are modern cult classics.
Growing up, I was famous in my neighborhood for my pickle concoctions. Essentially I did what my dad did when he cooked a steak, simply opened the spice cabinet and put some of everything on the pickles.
Each Christmas when we were kids, we got one of those advent calendars that you opened to count down the days until the big day. The ones we bought always had nasty chocolate inside, but this one sounds much better.
