The Love Tester is an actual Nintendo product from way back when the company just started making toys. According to gameSniped, it was made by Nintendo legend Gunpei Yokoi, the father of the Game & Watch and Game Boy systems, and producer of the Metroid series.
I got many of the ideas for torturing my brother as a kid from Looney Tunes. In several of the cartoons, the characters shot plungers from a bow and arrow at people who bothered them. I once stuck a plunger to my brother’s face and it actually did stick.
While I’ve never thought of AT-ATs or Imperial Walkers from Star Wars as particularly cute, the following video definitely presents them as a nice robotic pet to have around. I can already see the animated version coming to a HDTV near you!
Is this really Chewie, or just an Ewok with a belt around its torso?
Wookie or not, this backpack is cute, especially compared to the Yoda Back Buddy, which is kinda creepy. You can order the Chewbacca Back Buddy at Entertainment Earth for $40 (USD).
The world is presently going bonkers over the World Cup, which happens every four years. The US did really well in a recent match, which was promptly reenacted with LEGOs to commemorate the momentous occasion.
I don’t know what’s more amazing, this little stop-motion reenactment or the fact that the USA is actually doing pretty well in the World Cup this year.
Okay, it really wouldn’t help me score less than a 35 handicap, but this Batman golf cart would definitely cheer me up the next time I four-putt, or can’t hit past the ladies’ tee box. This his undeniably great Tumbler-inspired golf cart was recently spotted on the Warner Bros.
I was pretty sad when they announced plans to take down the 60-foot Gundam statue that was erected last year in Tokyo. Luckily, Bandai recently announced that they were going to put it up again in Shizuoka, 125 miles west of Tokyo.
The coaches that were at my elementary school were a special breed of sadists. They used to line up a bunch of first graders, hand us super long jump ropes, then stood back as we tried to jump, got tangled, fell down, and were beat with the ropes of our peers as they flopped around.
While I’ve seen everything from keyboards to LEDs integrated into t-shirts, this is the first time that I’ve seen an actual guitar put into a t-shirt. That’s not all: this funky t-shirt comes even with an amplifier.
The t-shirt is wired up with digitized samples of the major chords from a real electric guitar.
Japanese mobile content specialists Mobile Art Lab are selling a unique product. It’s a children’s book entitled Popo and Momo RIDE! RIDE!, but it’s actually a combination of two components, one analog and one digital. It has a book-like part that serves both as the frame and as receptacle for an iPhone or iPod Touch where the app is opened.
The latest in handheld emulators, the Letcool N350JP tries to one-up other portables by adding on something they don’t offer – a pair of external controllers for two-player fun.
The compact system comes with emulators for the Super Nintendo, NES, Sega Genesis, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advance, but if it’s anything like the other portable emulators out there, you can bet there will be more emulators, and probably a Linux build for it at some point.
Summer is here in Texas and it’s so hot already that ol’ Beelzebub himself won’t come to these parts until late in October. With it being so hot, you can count on folks making it to the lake or down to the coast.
Big N today took wraps off of their much-anticipated Nintendo 3DS handheld video game system at the E3 2010 show.
The new handheld looks sort of like a DSi, but features a widescreen 3.5″ 3D display at the top which requires no glasses to see the its 3D effect.
David Hyman created this strange robotic hand that can be controlled via a wrist-mounted exoskeleton system. Because they’re as versatile as hot glue and duct tape, the whole thing is made out of LEGO parts..
The controller duplicates David’s exact moves on a remote robotic hand.
When I first saw these LEGO guns, I thought that for sure that they wouldn’t be able to fire. But I’ve been proven wrong, and they can actually fire LEGO bricks. Sweet!
These weapons are all part of Jack Streat‘s collection and he’s made quite a few different guns, from AK-47 to the Famas G1.
