Legotron: Light Cycles Speeding Down the Block

Legotron: Light Cycles Speeding Down the Block
TRON is one of the most famous geek movies of all time, and what better way to pay homage to the film than with another geek favorite? Flickr user/blocksmith/80s baby (I suppose) 2×4 created these neat LEGO light cycles and even posted step-by-step instructions on his Flick page. They’re not as fancy or as detailed as the other LEGO creations we’ve featured, but the movie light cycles were really simple to begin with so I guess 2×4’s approach is appropriate. I’m curious though as to why 2×4 used blue tiles for the grid/path/road whatever instead of white like in the movie.

More Like Claylo: Surprisingly Adorable Halo Figures
A brave soul could come up with piles and piles of adjectives to lay upon the Halo franchise, but “cute” usually isn’t one that comes up (unless you’re talking about playing with the Grunt Birthday Party skull on).

Buried Treasure: Uncharted 2’S ‘Fortune Hunter’ Edition

Buried Treasure: Uncharted 2’S ‘Fortune Hunter’ Edition
Not to go all shameless self-promotion on ya’ll, but if you happen to read Geekadelphia (another site I write for) you know that I have an unhealthy crush on Nathan Fillion – A.K.A. Malcolm Reynolds from Firefly.

Spray Cacas: Si Amigo, Caca.

Spray Cacas: Si Amigo, Caca.
Don’t know what “caca” means? Open up your brain tank ’cause here comes – okay it’s Spanish for poop. So what would a product named “Spray Cacas” be like? Let me tell you: it’s a product that will revolutionize pranks in the same way that the Naked Man revolutionized one night stands.

The Old Robots Website: the Robot Geek’S Happy Place

The Old Robots Website: the Robot Geek’S Happy Place
Someone at Robot’s Dreams just posted a link and a tiny snapshot of The Old Robots Website, nothing else; no intro, not even a goodbye. After spending nearly an hour at said website, I think I now know why: whoever posted that link must have been so eager to go back to browsing The Old Robots Website that he or she couldn’t be bothered with typing something else other than the link. If you’re interested in toy robots, then The Old Robots Website is NSFW for you; you’ll try to get out, but it will keep pulling you back in.

Runaway R/C Ramen Noodle Cart: Why? Why Not?

Runaway R/C Ramen Noodle Cart: Why? Why Not?
The latest in a long line of strange and wonderful gadgets from Japan, this remote-controlled vehicle is modeled after one of those Ramen noodle carts you might see on the streets of Yokohama (mama). The tiny noodle cart runs on 4 AA batteries, and can cruise along at up to 5 kilometers per hour.

Mega Man Boss Battle Rubik’s Cube: Still Easier to Finish Than the Video Game

Mega Man Boss Battle Rubik’s Cube: Still Easier to Finish Than the Video Game
I’ve never been able to solve a Rubik’s cube; the most I can do is “solve” one of the faces. I’m also not good at platformers, nor do I enjoy playing them (but I am really interested in playing Ratchet & Clank).

Lethal Pneumatic Ping Pong Gun: ‘Nuff Said.

Lethal Pneumatic Ping Pong Gun: ‘Nuff Said.
MAKE magazine fan/artist/inventor/sculptor/prototyper/modern da Vinci Ron Kissinger built an air-powered gun that turns ping pong balls into balls of fury. The gun has a magazine that can fire up to 14 shots. It takes a few seconds to load the ammo – i.e.

God Hand Robot Ready to Get You With His Kung-Fu Grip

God Hand Robot Ready to Get You With His Kung-Fu Grip
Give your robot a hand (or two) with these incredibly complex mechanical digits from Japan’s Crafthouse. Instead of the typical grippers you might find on a hobby robot, Crafthouse’s servo-controlled GOD HANDs give miniature robots a set of flexible digits that work much like their human masters’ appendages.

Horsey-Version of ‘Odin’ Summon Shows Up at Japanese Toy Show

Horsey-Version of ‘Odin’ Summon Shows Up at Japanese Toy Show
Someone over at Square Enix must be a fan of Transformers. I say this because for some reason, all Final Fantasy’s classic “summons” now have alternate vehicle modes in Final Fantasy XIII. For example, Shiva is now summoned as two ladies who combine to form some sort of lesbian motorcycle.

Takaratomy Micropets-I Robots Will Kill You With Cuteness

Takaratomy Micropets-I Robots Will Kill You With Cuteness
Cuter than a bowl of kittens covered in marshmallows and sprinkles, these little electronic playthings are enough to make me want to puke a rainbow. Each of TakaraTomy’s Micropets-i miniature desktop robo-playthings has a tiny little mind of its own. The little animals can chase after a tiny ball or your hand, stroll around any flat surface and avoid obstacles, sing tunes, and even participate in duets when you get two of them together.

DIY Toymaking in These Our Modern Times

DIY Toymaking in These Our Modern Times
Once upon a time, making a toy was as simple as whittling a rough shape in a piece of wood, or tying a few rags together. Today? You’ve got to have LEDs and microchips up in that business.

‘Femme Fatale’ Street Fighter Iv Fightstick is Pink, Powerful, and Pricey

‘Femme Fatale’ Street Fighter Iv Fightstick is Pink, Powerful, and Pricey
Anyone who’s played Street Fighter IV knows the only way to actually play the game is with an arcade-style fightstick. Trouble is, if you’re not handy with a soldering iron and have some spare wood and wires lying around, you’re left with just one option, and that’s to pony up.

Nintendo 64 + Lazer Doodle + Psone = Darth64

Nintendo 64 + Lazer Doodle + Psone = Darth64
We already featured Jon Jandran aka Hailrazer’s awesome Dreamcast portable mod, the dreamtrooper. He originally wanted to paint the dreamtrooper’s case black and call it the DarthCast, but he decided to stick with the original console’s white color.

The Softest Toad You’Ll Ever See

The Softest Toad You’Ll Ever See
Toad is probably the cutest character from the Mario ‘verse (Mario in various boots and outfits aside), but he doesn’t show up as often as many of the other characters in crafts outside of cosplay, which is why I was so thrilled to see this adorable knitted version. He’s all fat and puffy and soft, like a sock monkey but about six hundred times (I measured) better.

T-Rex USB Drive: Dinosaurs Became Extinct So You Could Save Your Data

T-Rex USB Drive: Dinosaurs Became Extinct So You Could Save Your Data
Hey kids! Meet T-Rex. He may be small – 6″ x 2.5″ x 6″ – for a dinosaur, but he’s willing to protect your files. And with those big claws and teeth, not even Swiper will risk the wrath of T-Rex!
