Teddy bears are supposed to be all cute and fuzzy, but what happens when an intrepid DIY-enthusiast decides to make one look like a Cylon?
The Cylon Teddy Bear Mark 1 was created by Instructables user Dragonvpm, probably to scare his girlfriend!
With these clever tools, you’ll never know who scribbled the stick figures on your living room wall. Was it your daughter, or the little yellow-‘stached midget who welcomed you home?
Each mustache is equivalent to 5 crayons.
There’s just something about awesome LEGO builds that I just love, especially when they don’t involve kits. This amazing build is by Dave DeGobbi. He calls it Crawler Town.
It kind of reminds me of Howl’s Moving Castle, one of the more recent Studio Ghibli movies.
Remember those games from the arcade where you have to try and grab a prize by delicately positioning a claw around your booty of choice? Those things always frustrated the crap out of me. At least this new version of the game looks like a bit more fun, thanks to its plentiful use of robotic technology.
Mechatrax’ ROBO CATCHER is a new take on the classic claw game that replaces the claw with a small humanoid bipedal robot.
Taking its design cues from the snap-together world of LEGO, this clever remote-control car is great for those of you who just have to have things your own way.
When stripped bare, this R/C vehicle just looks like a flat LEGO base.
Remember those old Nintendo Game & Watch LCD games from back in the 1980s? Well if you’re a fan of these classic precursors to modern handheld games, you’ll be happy to hear they’re back! Only this time, they’re much, much smaller.
Thanks to a partnership between TakaraTomy A.R.T.S.
I’ll apologize in advance to any of our readers who find themselves confined to a wheelchair, or who are physically-challenged in any way. But whoever at Mattel thought that this pint-sized Jake Sully in a wheelchair should be called an “action figure” clearly had their head firmly up their arse.
As its name implies, the Superplexus Vortex is a super-sized version of the Perplexus, a plastic spherical maze. The Superplexus Vortex not only has a catchy name, the mere sight of it is probably enough to make a drunk man vomit.
Meet the Microsoft Surface Monster. He’s half-real, half-virtual, 100% adorable.
As you may have guessed, the monster was made specifically for the Surface, Microsoft’s super multitouch tabletop computer. Right now the monster can’t do much besides suck bubbles up its butt (and poop them out if its eye is poked), but it does a good job of illustrating the level of interactivity that’s possible with the Surface.
While most of you were probably busy this past weekend killing splicers with your drill and protecting Little Sisters, one Bioshock fan out there was doing something a bit more productive.
While you were all sitting on your couches upgrading your plasmids, crafter Nerdigurumi (I love that name) got out the yarn and crocheted up this awesome little Big Daddy Bouncer in amigurumi form.
Amazingly enough, Mr.
Would you believe this cute little robot toy costs less than $10 bucks? Zibits are a new series of low-priced miniature robots that are perfect on your desktop or for your kids (or cats) to play with.
The guys over at Senario sent me a sample Zibits robot to play with – he kinda reminds me of the Android logo, but in orange instead of green.
Chatman is a new sort of toy that plugs into your computer, helping to make your instant messaging more interesting for everyone, especially kids.
Chatman is kind of an emoticon itself, but it’s able to display different faces based on your IM discussions.
If I didn’t have my glasses on, I’d probably be fooled, but you won’t. This LEGO Big Mac Combo was created by the Japanese LEGO artists Sachiko.
It’s kind of cool to think that LEGO artistry is actually a profession, or maybe more of a hobby.
I finally got a chance to see Coraline a few weeks back, and was completely blown away by the incredible things that could be done with miniature models and stop-motion animation. While you probably won’t be able to live up to Henry Selick’s amazing work with this little desktop toy, you can at least dip your feet in the shallow end of the stop-motion pool.
Made by Japan’s Agatsuma Corporation, the AnimeStudio is a standalone animation studio that lets you shoot frame-by-frame video, and store your creations on a 1GB SD card.
These amazingly intricate robot models come to us courtesy of Henry’s Robots.
Henry has been amassing a virtual army of miniature metal mecha in his laboratory over the last few years. Each one is lovingly handmade by Henry, and I only wish I could have one sitting on my desktop right now.
Japanese retail store Muji has teamed up with LEGO for a special line of toys that combine the world famous bricks with… paper.
Basically each set consists of basic rectangular and square LEGO bricks and a bunch of colored paper – I also saw translucent paper in one of the sets – and templates for cutouts.
