Classic Controller Pro Coming to a Wii Near You in April
A confession: I do not like Nintendo’s Wii. I do not like to waggle, I do not like to daggle. Wii is only fun, for me, when I am playing with the Wiimote held horizontally (like…

Konnet Power Pyramid Positively Powers Your Playing Pads
Since picking up my PS3 Slim in October ’09, I’ve been in deep, starry-eyed love. Our relationship has had only one hiccup, just one point of contention: the stupid 操’ing 2ft USB cable I am forced…

DIY Lady Gaga Glasses Are ‘Money Honey’

DIY Lady Gaga Glasses Are ‘Money Honey’
I love Lady Gaga. A lot. Don’t believe me? Check out my Last.fm page. That’s right; by my iTunes’ count I’ve played her tracks four hundred and fourteen times. The closest runner-up? Minus the Bear, at…

Final Fantasy Xiii Party Bus Hits the Mean Streets of San Francisco

Final Fantasy Xiii Party Bus Hits the Mean Streets of San Francisco
Great, just what I needed – another reason to be jealous of the 1UP crew. It’s bad enough I don’t work for them, and that I don’t live in San Francisco. Now they’re being visited by…

Line Breaks Won’t Cause Tetris Chair to Vanish From Under You
I swear some of the best stuff we’ve posted here at technabob has originated from someone’s Coroflot portfolio. In this case, it’s Mexican industrial designer Gabriel Cañas’ Tetris Chair, which is so amazingly gaudy that only…

‘a Boy and His Blob’ Comes to Life, My Worst Nightmare Realized

‘a Boy and His Blob’ Comes to Life, My Worst Nightmare Realized
I have an irrational fear and hatred of “blobs” and blob-like creatures. Growing up, I used to watch a Saturday morning cartoon called The Herculoids, in which there were two gelatinous mounds named “Gleep” and “Gloop.”…

Assassinate Your Friends With Real-Life “Extension Knife”

Assassinate Your Friends With Real-Life “Extension Knife”
I didn’t much care for Assassin’s Creed, but I will concede that the assassin’s retractable dagger is a pretty badass weapon. And in the most literal sense of “badass.” So you would think news of a…

Sega Saturn Joysticks Transform Into Insecticons, Apparently

Sega Saturn Joysticks Transform Into Insecticons, Apparently
I’d love to make some sort of Transformers/Allspark joke in reference to this Sega Saturn joystick, but unfortunately Gizmodo beat me to the punch. But that’s okay, ‘cause I can one-up their nerdiness by delving in…

NES Controller Flash Drive is Like Spy Tech for Geeks
There’s something unique about this unassuming looking NES controller – and no, it’s not that it’s a flash drive. Gaming peripherals turned storage devices are a dime a dozen, but this flash drive requires a secret…
