My daughter has a bunch of these bracelets that she wears around that look like plain rubber bands when she puts them on. When you take them off, they look like all sorts of stuff like animals or food.
I think we all know the answer to that question. But if you’re looking for a constant reminder of Leia’s fantastic takedown of the big glob of goo, then look no further than this awesome desktop diorama.
This perfect likeness of the sexy bikini-clad Leia strangling the life out of Jabba is available now as a handpainted polystone diorama.
I have to be honest with you; I usually look at the people who buy the expensive collector’s edition video games with some amusement. I mean these people pay a lot more for the collector’s edition game to get goofy things like a tin box for the game or DLC clothes and such.
Ah, there’s nothing quite like a truly unuseless invention. The Slink-O-Matic does one thing, and one thing only – it keeps a Slinky going indefinitely.
Created by Jim Sellers, the machine just gradually shifts said Slinky from side to side without need for such pesky annoyances as a pair of human hands or a staircase to walk down.
Being six when the Rubik’s Cube was hot back in the 80’s meant that each Christmas for a few years there you were guaranteed someone would get you one of the damned puzzles. For me the only thing worse than opening up a box Christmas Day and finding a Rubik’s Cube was opening that box and finding underwear.
We here in the U.S. might have had Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots when we were kids, but in Japan back in 1979, they had a little game called Pokapon. Instead of knocking off your opponent’s block like in Rock ‘Em Sock’ Em, the objective of Pokapon was to beat your friend senseless until their wig flies off their head.
Now, there’s a 21st century update to Pokapon, simply called Pokapon DX.
Sure, you could go out and get one of those schmancy Hot Wheels sets and build a race track for toy cars, or you could buy this inexpensive kit that lets you turn just about anything into a track.
Well, I suppose that Donkey Products’ “My First Autobahn” Tape Kit doesn’t actually enforce that your cars’ wheels stay on the track, but it’s still a cool way to quickly make roads wherever you’d like.
My son has no interest in anything resembling technology at this point in his life unless it has to do with video games or watching Sonic the Hedgehog cartoons on Hulu. He does like Hot Wheels cars though and has collected them since he was really young.
Here’s something fun for all you retro gamers out there. Classic SEGA mascot Sonic the Hedgehog and his spiny rival Knuckles now have another way to get around instead of just getting into a ball and spinning frantically.
NKOK is releasing these The Sonic Speed Star and Knuckles Land Breaker R/C cars, based on the vehicles in Sonic and SEGA All-Stars Racing.
Everyone’s psychopathic robot in huggable, squeezable form:
From left to right, that’s GlaDOS’s morality core, curiosity core, intelligence core and anger core. The plushies are made of fleece with felt and ribbon accents. They can also talk!
If you’ve always wanted to build your own programmable robot, price or technical complexity might have gotten in your way. But this new robot from RobotShop brings the cost down to a pricepoint that mere mortals can afford, and is easy to assemble and get started with.
Priced at just $89.99
If you think that LEGOs rule, then look no further, because there’s a guide out there that will allow you to make your own LEGO headphones.
These headphones will definitely make you stand out from the crowd.
This remote-controlled Millennium Falcon seems to have had a slight design modification from the one in the movies. Instead of giant hyperthrusters (or whatever they’re called on the back of the real Falcon), this version is propelled vertically into flight like a helicopter.
Holy crikey! This is one bad-ass casemod job.
Created by modder pinchillo, this mech-style computer casemod is inspired by the Dreadnoughts from Warhammer 40,000. But even if you’ve never played the game, you have to appreciate the sheer spectacle of pinchillo’s amazing case-building skills.
There have been a bunch of replicas of the Batpod, which was made famous in the most recent Batman movie The Dark Knight, but this is one of the rare ones that’s street legal. At least, I hope so.
This replica, dubbed the PS-Pod, for Pankaj Shah, the current owner, was commissioned by Chopper City USA and uses an all metal bodywork.
