These Wireless Charging Mats Look Like SEGA Game Controllers

These Wireless Charging Mats Look Like SEGA Game Controllers
Back in the day, I was a serious SEGA fanboy. The SEGA Genesis and Dreamcast are still two of my favorite video game consoles of all time, the Japanese brand offering an outsider’s approach to gaming, releasing offbeat and edgy titles that Nintendo and Sony wouldn’t have dreamed of at the time.

Are You Ready for a Robot Massage Therapist?

Are You Ready for a Robot Massage Therapist?
Back before COVID-19, I used to love going to the massage therapist to have the knots and kinks worked out of my perpetually stiff back. Now, the idea of being locked in a room with a virtual stranger putting their hands all over me is kind of worrisome.

VHS Pillowcases and Duvets: Be Kind, Relax and Rewind

VHS Pillowcases and Duvets: Be Kind, Relax and Rewind
While VHS tapes clearly won the format war against Betamax, I was always more of a Beta fan because I’ve always been an outsider-slash-tech snob. Regardless of the kind of videotape you chose back in the day, your blank tapes almost certainly came in a boldly designed box with colorful line art graphics.

Freddy Krueger Fire Pit Is the Stuff of Nightmares

Freddy Krueger Fire Pit Is the Stuff of Nightmares
One, Two, Freddy’s coming for you… Three, Four, better lock your door… Those simple words still send chills down my spine. After all, Freddy Krueger is one of the scariest villains in the history of horror flicks.

Sub-Zero Has These Human Spine Candles on His Dining Table

Sub-Zero Has These Human Spine Candles on His Dining Table
Think your 12-foot-tall skeleton display is the creepiest Halloween display on the block? You might have to up your game by this year with something even more disturbing than a giant skinless corpse. When you’re setting the dinner table for guests, light up some of these spine-chilling human spine candles.

Jetpack Backpack Launches Kids Back to School

Jetpack Backpack Launches Kids Back to School
Kids may have already headed back to school for the year, but they can always use some new gear. When you send them off to school for the day, you want them to feel confident and happy.

Baby Yoda Glitter Globe Sets a Snowy Star Wars Scene

Baby Yoda Glitter Globe Sets a Snowy Star Wars Scene
We’ve yet to visit any planets on The Mandalorian where it’s snowing. But maybe it’s just that none of the scenes so far have taken place in the wintertime. Regardless, I think The Child aka Baby Yoda aka Grogu would enjoy catching snowflakes on his little tongue in between gulping down frog eggs.

This Custom Pac-Man Analog Synthesizer Looks A-maze-ing

This Custom Pac-Man Analog Synthesizer Looks A-maze-ing
You know what? I’m surprised that they never came up with a vaccine for Pac-Man Fever. I mean, I’ve had it for nearly four decades, and it’s not getting any better. I suppose if you’re still a Pac-Man fan like me, you might want something like this sweet Pac-Man-themed synthesizer by Swedish artist and vintage gadget fan Love Hultén.

Ramen-Flavored Sodas: Yuck or Yum?

Ramen-Flavored Sodas: Yuck or Yum?
Ramen is delicious. While I much prefer the taste of fresh-cooked noodles and meats at a Japanese restaurant, instant ramen will do in a pinch. Nissin Cup Noodles are a staple among college kids, bachelors, and lazy cooks everywhere.

LG DVLED Super-Sizes TV Cinema Walls up to 325 Inches

LG DVLED Super-Sizes TV Cinema Walls up to 325 Inches
The biggest screen I’ve ever had in my house measured 96″ diagonal and used a front projector and a traditional movie screen. The room had to be totally dark to really enjoy it, but it was cool having a screen that big.

AT-AT Aquarium Looks Like Hoth After Global Warming

AT-AT Aquarium Looks Like Hoth After Global Warming
When you think of AT-ATs, you think of these giant mechanical beasts stomping along the snowy surface of Hoth. But what would happen if the Empire’s war machines ran on fossil fuels and their CO2 emissions, resulting in a greenhouse effect?

Venus Flytrap Hat Is More Like a Venus Humantrap

Venus Flytrap Hat Is More Like a Venus Humantrap
I’ve never been a fly, so I don’t know what it’s like to be eaten by a carnivorous plant. Suffice it to say, I’m sure it’s rather unpleasant. Still, I’ve always been fascinated by these plants that can open and close to grab their lunch, and then digest them for nutrients.

Galaga Enamel Pins Bring the 8-Bit Goodness

Galaga Enamel Pins Bring the 8-Bit Goodness
I’ve played a whole lot of arcade games in my lifetime, but one that I always go back to is Namco’s classic Galaga. It’s every bit as playable and challenging today as it was the day it came out in 1981, and now I don’t even have to spend quarters to play it.

Alien Cookbook Has Edible Xenomorph Eggs, Facehuggers, Chestbursters, and Queens

Alien Cookbook Has Edible Xenomorph Eggs, Facehuggers, Chestbursters, and Queens
Thanks in large part to the genius designs of the late H.R. Giger, the Alien universe is filled with some of the creepiest creatures and environments in the history of science fiction. You wouldn’t want to encounter a xenomorph at any of its life stages, let alone have one staring you in the face on your dinner plate.

This Bed Lets Kids Sleep Under an Imperial Walker

This Bed Lets Kids Sleep Under an Imperial Walker
Can you imagine waking up every morning and looking up to see an Imperial Walker towering over your head? Well, if you’ve got $8500 lying around, your kid could experience that thanks to the guys at Tiny Town Studios.

Display Your LEGO Minifigs in a Giant Minifig

Display Your LEGO Minifigs in a Giant Minifig
Do you or your kids like to collect LEGO minifigures? You could leave them scattered around the room where you could step on one, or the dog could try to eat them, or you could store and display them in a more appropriate place.
