Fading Out LED Soft Cushion: Wow. Just… Wow.

Fading Out LED Soft Cushion: Wow. Just… Wow.
If I ever have kids, I’ll be sure to pass on to them everything that I know about anything. Like the joys of reading, or the merits of moderation. And thanks to all of the fascinating things I’ve read about since I started writing here, if someday my kids come…

Optimash Prime and Bumblespud: Potatoes in Disguise [Transformers]

Optimash Prime and Bumblespud: Potatoes in Disguise [Transformers]
Yeah, yeah, I know that Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is coming out in a couple of weeks, and a million and one of you are going to run out on the first day to go see it. But this sort of shameless movie tie-in really needs to stop. First…

R2-D2, Stripped Down to All Metal

R2-D2, Stripped Down to All Metal
It’s comforting to note that Star Wars favorite R2-D2 is just as cool when he’s stripped of his iconic blue and white. At the recent Maker Faire, a colorless version was on display, and really stands out next to the more accurate replicas. All of the character but none of…

Pong Hat, for Playing the Classic Game With Your Eyebrows

Pong Hat, for Playing the Classic Game With Your Eyebrows
Oh, that Arduino. Is there anything you can’t accomplish with an Arduino and a little bit of know-how? Whether your project is of a serious nature, or dedicated to playing Pong with your eyebrows–like this one is–the potential here seems limitless. But let’s get back to that eyebrow thing. The…

Perfect Petzzz: Cute or Stupid?

Perfect Petzzz: Cute or Stupid?
Welcome to another edition of Cute or Stupid?, where we examine stuff and mull over their existence, whether they are useless but cute or just plain useless and therefore stupid. Today we have Perfect Petzzz, “life like” puppies and kittens that do nothing but sleep. And they’re battery-powered. Perhaps you’re…

LEGO Flamethrower Will have You Shitting Bricks

LEGO Flamethrower Will have You Shitting Bricks
Here’s a warning to all the bullies out there who like to make fun of nerds: don’t mess with people who can build flamethrowers out of LEGOs. See, all they need are some bricks and a bottle of butane, and they’ll be pwning your ass like a Pyro on a…

Robo-Q Optimus Prime and Bumblebee: Tiny Transformers

Robo-Q Optimus Prime and Bumblebee: Tiny Transformers
Just because you’re a robot in disguise doesn’t mean you have to be huge. These tiny little versions of two popular Transformers autobots prove quite the contrary. The latest in TakaraTomy’s Robo-Q series, these palm-sized Optimus Prime and Bumblebee robots are just too cute to be capable of any real…

The Real Alien Ant Farm

The Real Alien Ant Farm
Remember playing with ant farms when you were a kid? You know, the type where you’d get sand all over the place and proceed to kill all of your insect friends within a matter of minutes as you tried to fill it up? Or when they’d all escape and start…

Sega Arcade Cabinets for Miniature Gamers

Sega Arcade Cabinets for Miniature Gamers
For many of us, the days of arcades are long past (and if you’re lucky enough to have one nearby, cherish it!), but we remember plugging in all those quarters with a particular fondness. Well, prepare to have that fondness exploited, in the form of adorable miniature arcade cabinets. Even…

Desktop Bat-Signal Hails Bugs Not Bats

Desktop Bat-Signal Hails Bugs Not Bats
Perfect for closet crime-fighters, this replica Bat Signal will definitely give you extra geek cred the next time your friends come over. The miniature replica Bat-Signal features a sturdy metal construction and stands about 12-inches tall. It’s got a built-in cooling fan and can be swiveled and tilted to give…

The Plush Luke and Tauntaun Playset [Star Wars]

The Plush Luke and Tauntaun Playset [Star Wars]
Crafty Star Wars fans will have their goods on display this year at Stitch Wars this summer, and one contribution is this pair of plushies from The Empire Strikes Back. One part Luke, one part tauntaun, all chilling-in-innards fun. Or, uh, maybe not chilling. The tauntaun’s belly apparently zips up,…

Terminator Salvation Bobble-Head Almost as Bad an Idea as a 4th Terminator Movie

Terminator Salvation Bobble-Head Almost as Bad an Idea as a 4th Terminator Movie
You know the Terminator franchise has officially jumped the shark when 1) Terminator: Salvation can get trounced at the box office by a Ben Stiller movie and 2) they start making bobble-head versions of the deadly T-600. I really don’t care that its eyes glow with red LEDs just like…

Air-Trekkers Jumping Stilts: Unleash the Tigger in You

Air-Trekkers Jumping Stilts: Unleash the Tigger in You
Ever wondered if there was a way to turn any surface into a trampoline? Me neither. But there is an answer to that non-existent question that doesn’t involve taking illegal substances: wear Air-Trekkers. They’re 3-foot long jumping stilts with an aluminum frame & carbon-fiber springs. Just put them on, and,…

Blaster USB Hub: 4 Ports in Disguise

Blaster USB Hub: 4 Ports in Disguise
This Blaster 4-port USB hub is a minor fail. I mean, it’s cool that it transforms into a laptop (which you can then connect to a real laptop); it’s just that Blaster doesn’t transform into a laptop. Would it have been less awesome if Blaster the 4-port hub actually transforms…

Steam-Powered Dragon Tin Toy Will Vaporize Your Money

Steam-Powered Dragon Tin Toy Will Vaporize Your Money
German toy company Tucher + Walther’s tin toy-making methods have remained unchanged, going as far back to 1880. Want to know their secret? They have vampire craftsmen; the ones around now were the exact same workers that they had in 1880. Seriously though, Tucher+Walther are very proud of their techniques…

Pac-Man Roomba Eats All Your Dirt Pellets

Pac-Man Roomba Eats All Your Dirt Pellets
As devices go, the Roomba is pretty cool on its own. It’s a useful machine and a fun toy all in one, so dressing it up can seem a little gratuitous. But if you turn your Roomba into Pac-Man… well, that’s just awesome. Especially if you use hilarious and appropriate…
