Visual Memory Nano: iPod Nano Stuffed Inside Dreamcast VMU

Visual Memory Nano: iPod Nano Stuffed Inside Dreamcast VMU
The Dreamcast’s VMU was a failed experiment. It was a great idea – a storage device that also played games – but in reality it didn’t get enough support from developers. Goteking’s hack on the other hand, was a great success, stuffing the new 6th generation iPod nano into a VMU.

R2-D2 Robot Costume Holds a Dude and Moves Around
Not too long ago I mentioned that a dude had created the coolest Halloween costume ever and it was a life size power loader from Aliens the movie. That thing was epic and today we have another epic DIY costume created by a guy that is a large version of R2D2.

Voltron Go Lion 24″ Shogun Warrior Doesn’T Disassemble Into 4.8″ Lions

Power Tool Mini Dragster Gets Motivated by Six Circular Saws
You know all is right with the world when geeks have a competition specifically for DIY dragsters that are powered by power tools. Tim Allen must be so proud. The annual competition in the UK is called the Power Tool Drag Racing Championships.

Minifigs Run Through LEGO Logan’S Run

Minifigs Run Through LEGO Logan’S Run
What’s not to love about this great LEGO tribute by Keith Goldman to Logan’s Run? If you haven’t ever seen this retro sci-fi flick, it’s well worth it. It’s part of a crop of dystopian movies that were made in the 70s and 80s.

Order in Chaos Clock is Chaotic

Order in Chaos Clock is Chaotic
We see plenty of crazy wristwatches that surface from Tokyoflash and other makers of timepieces. We don’t see too many wall clocks with a crazy designs though. This clock is dubbed the Order in Chaos clock by the designer, and as you can see, the numbers look very chaotic.

Chevy Camaro Computer’S Atom Chip Not as Fast as a V8

Chevy Camaro Computer’S Atom Chip Not as Fast as a V8
I have to say that I’m actually a big fan of the recent trend of automakers bringing back the classic muscle cars of my childhood. One of the better looking retro-modern muscle cars is the Chevy Camaro that played a major role in Transformers.

World’s Largest HD Video Wall Speeds Into Charlotte Motor Speedway
The new stadium that the Dallas Cowboys plays in here in Texas has a gigantic video screen hanging from the ceiling and the thing is awesomely huge. There are other massive video walls in use around the country in stadiums and other places where many people congregate to watch sports.

Omg! Life-Size Aliens Power Loader Costume is Epic Halloween Awesomeness!
When it comes to DIY stuff, the most I can muster is following the directions well enough to bolt a new gadget together. If it comes to actually making all those parts you have to put together I know better than to try.

Robot Survival Games: Proxy Airsoft

Robot Survival Games: Proxy Airsoft
Like the awesome RACER concept, the Robot Survival Games are real world matches but not directly between human players. Competitors use robots armed with airsoft guns; they control the robots remotely and use on-board cameras to help them navigate.

Vizio 7-Inch Vmb070 Portable Tv Keeps You Entertained on the Go

Vizio 7-Inch Vmb070 Portable Tv Keeps You Entertained on the Go
Kid’s today are so lucky. When I was a kid, if you wanted to play a video game you had to have a bunch of wires and a giant console. Today, my kids have better graphics on a iPod than my Nintendo had.

Mimobot Intros Luke and Han Solo Stormtrooper Flash Drives

Mimobot Intros Luke and Han Solo Stormtrooper Flash Drives
These new Mimobot flash drives look pretty cool because when they are not in use, they look like stormtroopers. When you take off the helmet to plug it in to your computer, you’ll find either Luke Skywalker or Han Solo hiding beneath. There’s also an extra cap so that you can play with Luke and Han Solo without the stormtrooper masks, but I think the stormtrooper helmet is much better than hair.

Combine Collective Mac Keyboard Tray Will Give You Wood

Combine Collective Mac Keyboard Tray Will Give You Wood
I am not a Mac user. I had a MacBook once but I used Windows on it and eventually tired of messing with Boot Camp and sold the thing. I have never felt the desire to own a Mac desktop, because I like to roll my own custom computers.

Brando Mp3 Player Looks Like a Brick Phone, Still Doesn’T Make Calls
There are some times when making a product look retro turns out really cool. Things like the new Ford Mustang and the Chevy Camaro are great examples of how designers can use cues from old products to make something new and cool.

Nanodots Are Like Magnetic Bb’S and LEGO Rolled Into One

Nanodots Are Like Magnetic Bb’S and LEGO Rolled Into One
I would bet that most of you were like me when you were a kid and had tons of building sets like Lego and Lincoln Logs. My son had this set of magnetic building thingies for a while that had large magnetic balls and magnetic tubes you could make into different shapes.
