Last Christmas I bought my son one of those games with the Star Wars brand that you were supposed to be able to control with your mind. The idea was you could move a ball up and down a tube just by thinking about it.
Why go with an ordinary coffee table, when you can get one with a complete media center PC and arcade gaming system built-in?
surface tensions’ Arcane arcade table not only looks great, it’s got a hidden Shuttle XPC, and an LCD screen (19″ or 26″) under the table’s toughened glass surface.
…because Rogue Synapse’ freeware version of Starfighter will only run in Microsoft’s OS.
That’s not the actual cabinet used in the movie; Rogue Synapse says the original has been destroyed. The one in the picture is from the documentary.
If you live near Bob Davis, before you get out of your house listen closely for machines charging up, tin cans being crushed, or for this weird alien whistling noise. If you hear any of the three, it’s not safe to go outside – Bob Davis must be out playing with his 2,000v washer launcher, and he could very well hurt you.
The most I have ever spent on a watch was about $100, and that was pushing it. I haven’t worn a watch in five years now; I just use my smartphone for the time. The rich folks out there like their fancy watches though and need a place to keep all those watches safe from thieves along with their other fancy stuff.
Anyone who wants to disturb Rick Prescott while he’s working will have to pass by his receptionist first – a heat-seeking Nerf gun.
Prescott’s awesome mod, which won MAKE’s Gadget Freak Design Contest, consists of a Nerf Vulcan Blaster hooked up to several Devantech TPA81 Thermal Sensors that are controlled by an ATMega 168 8-bit processor.
I will be the first to admit that getting around big airports is a massive pain in the rear. That is one of the main reasons why I never fly coupled with the fact that I always get stuck next to the 400-pound guy with a sweat problem.
I’m a sucker for remote control toys and robots. My office desk and the toy room upstairs are littered with the remnants of all manner of R/C toys from cars to robots and flying whatnots. A cool new R/C bug robot has been announced called Skitterbot.
Ever wanted one of those crazy t-shirt cannons they use to blast shirts into the stands at the stadium? Well thanks to hacker extraordinaire KipKay, you can now have your own.
Kip has put together this handy tutorial video on how to build your own t-shirt launcher from common parts you can get at any hardware or plumbing store.
LEGO Star Wars fan site From Bricks To Bothans recently held a contest asking members to come up with an original bounty hunter, and of course a bounty hunter ship. Angus MacLane swam deep into the wells of imagination and inspiration, and this is what he came up with – a cheeseburger version of the Millennium Falcon.
Sure, you can buy a toy lightsaber prop just about anywhere, but if you really want to look the part, you have to go the way that Bradley Lewis did with his gorgeous handmade lightsaber and build your own.
I’m not a fan of the current glasses-requiring 3D tech, but I’m sure even I would find it a blast to play a 3D game with the JoyRide Atomic A1 Ultra-Compact Motion Simulator. I know, I know, we’ve been fooled and seduced by epic-sounding product names before, but this one is more promising.
Why anybody thought they needed to make remote-controlled cars made to look like soccer cleats is anyone’s guess, but here they are.
These vehicles pit one shoe versus another in a game of tabletop or floor soccer.
For those too young to remember, a View-Master is a device that shows pictures in stereoscopic 3D. The effect is achieved by placing a pair of film slides for each eye to see, to give the illusion of depth.
