Robonova Biped Robot: More Entertaining Than Transformers 2

Robonova Biped Robot: More Entertaining Than Transformers 2
I apologize to anyone who has seen Revenge of the Fallen and liked it, but personally I think I got ripped off on that one. My sentiments – and then some – have been represented elsewhere, so I’ll just leave it at that.

Sleek, Compact Portable SNES Mod

Sleek, Compact Portable SNES Mod
The Super Nintendo has been the target of some really sweet mods in its time, and this latest portable fits right into that pantheon of excellent mods. Marshall’s Supertendo looks so good that you’d swear it was professionally made. To get a good idea of the size of this custom handheld, check out this picture from the point of view of the top of the portable, where the cartridge fits.

Openemu Mac Emulator Lets You Play and Play With Retro Video Games

Openemu Mac Emulator Lets You Play and Play With Retro Video Games
There aren’t as many video game apps for the Mac as there are for Windows computers, and even then I have a feeling that there’s no program, Windows or otherwise, that lets you play and play with retro video games the way OpenEmu does.

Why Not Tweet Your Heart Rate?

Why Not Tweet Your Heart Rate?
If you use Twitter, odds are you occasionally inform your poor followers of some business that just really doesn’t matter. (How’s your sandwich, by the way?) Why not keep them updated on something that might actually matter, like your heart rate? Thanks to a bunch of Japanese Twitter-lovers, anyone willing to use a heart monitor can update their Twitter feeds with reports on their heart rates.

The quest to keep people indoors and separated from each other continues with the mydeskfriend robot toy penguin. The web-connected mydeskfriend will be able to connect to your Facebook account and read your messages and your feeds, in a robotic voice I assume.

Taiyo Voice-Heli: Voice Control Helicopter From Japan [Appu, Appu and Away]

Taiyo Voice-Heli: Voice Control Helicopter From Japan [Appu, Appu and Away]
This remote-controlled helicopter has the unique ability to be flown by voice command. Japan’s Taiyo Toy makes these unusual toy helicopters that come with a voice control mode. Just speak into the included microphone, and you can direct the helicopter up and down, and turn the engines off and on. Of course, it doesn’t quite understand English, so the commands are a little odd.

Miles Edgeworth Premium Edition Nintendo Dsi is All Class

Miles Edgeworth Premium Edition Nintendo Dsi is All Class
The Ace Attorney series has become a cult favorite among Nintendo DS fans, so I’m sure plenty of people are pleased to see that the most attractive special edition DSi yet is branded to match the series’ spin-off, starring prosecuting attorney Miles Edgeworth. Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth (known in Japan as Gyakuten Kenji) isn’t due out here until early next year, but the game was released last month in Japan with solid opening sales… and this beautiful DSi.

Pink Gundam: Cute or Stupid?

Pink Gundam: Cute or Stupid?
Here we go again. Pink Gundam with garish embellishments: cute or stupid? Does the existence of this no doubt unofficial model embarrass Giant Gundam? Or is it what the statue is looking for, the reason for his incessant head movements? Is this Gundam with a taste for lace a noble ally?

Homemade Video Game Weapons: Keepin’ It Real Geeky

Homemade Video Game Weapons: Keepin’ It Real Geeky
I love the new Gamespy. Who else loves the new Gamespy! Before they were just another video game site, with previews, reviews, and tons of ads, except that they had Flintlocke. But now they have so much more to offer.

Mini R2-D2 Drives Around Your Desktop, Where’S C-3PO?
Is that a lightsaber unit in your pocket, or are you just glad to see me? That’s the question your friends will be asking when you whip out this tiny little motorized R2-D2 and he starts tooling around your desk between your coffee mug and your iPod dock. The miniature R2-D2 doesn’t just sit there.

Trouble With Tribbles? Well These Certainly Won’T Help [Star Trek]

Trouble With Tribbles? Well These Certainly Won’T Help [Star Trek]
Sure, you may have loved J.J. Abrams updated take on Star Trek, but it just didn’t have enough tribbles for my taste. Thankfully, there’s a solution for the recent tribble shortage. Now you can be the proud owner of your own roomful of the little purring furrballs. These interactive replicas of the original TV critters not only look just like the originals, but they vibrate and emit a friendly cooing sound when you move them.

Tengu Allstars: the Little LED Singers Get a Makeover

Tengu Allstars: the Little LED Singers Get a Makeover
Remember Tengu? You know, the little LED guy who moves his pixel block mouth to the sounds it hears? Well Tengu is back, and this time, he’s got some new looks. Tengu Allstars are Crispin Jones’ latest creation.

Diana Multi-Pinhole Operator Camera by Lomography Helps You Take Puke-Inducing Pictures
Lomography’s new Diana Multi-Pinhole Operator allows users to use up to 3 pinholes in one shot. The pinholes create a ripple, cross-eyed effect that only worsens becomes crazier once you add the color filters to the mix.

Knit Star Trek Meerkats. Yes, Meerkats.

Knit Star Trek Meerkats. Yes, Meerkats.
Knit and crochet dolls are cute simply by definition, so you really don’t have to go the extra mile to summon a chorus of “awww.” If you do, however–and Alison Oddy sure did–the effect can be dramatic.

3.5-Inch Floppy Disks Get New Life as Jacob’S Ladder Toy
Remember those wooden Jacob’s Ladder toys you played with when you were a kid? You know, the kind where you flip the top block over, and then all of the other clacky blocks flip over on themselves? 

Fuzzy Wuzzy Wookiee Cookies Are Sadly Inedible

Fuzzy Wuzzy Wookiee Cookies Are Sadly Inedible
There’s absolutely nothing sadder than a cookie that’s not for eating (except perhaps the level of hyperbole in this sentence). We could be talking about the best cookie ever–and these would make the list, if there was a list, and being edible wasn’t a requirement–but if it’s not for eating, it’s a dealbreaker.
