Frolicat Bolt Entertains Your Pets With Laser, Not Lightning Bolts

Frolicat Bolt Entertains Your Pets With Laser, Not Lightning Bolts
So pet owners, you don’t have to worry – the FroliCat BOLT is basically a laser pointer for lazy people. Simply turn it on and projects a red dot and moves it in random patterns for 15 minutes, or until your cat (or dog, or baby) realizes what’s going on and attacks the gadget itself.

Walky Lets You Control Robots via Finger Gestures, Turns iPhone Into a Wii

Walky Lets You Control Robots via Finger Gestures, Turns iPhone Into a Wii
Yuta Sugiura and his colleagues at the Graduate School of Media Design in Keio University had a valid starting point – most of the software or hardware input systems today have no direct correlation to the command to be executed, and so are not that easy to master.

Cool Rider: Like a Segway, but Not Really

Cool Rider: Like a Segway, but Not Really
Lately, we’ve been running into lots of unusual personal transportation vehicles. The Cool Rider is just the latest attempt to dethrone the venerable Segway from the top of the single-person transporter heap. The Cool Rider isn’t quite as schmancy as a Segway, but it still looks like a fun way to get around.

Gundam Gun Ballpoint Pens Might Blast a Hole in Your Paper
Fans of the classic Japanese Anime series Gundam will recognize these familiar items. Except instead of firing deadly projectiles, these miniature weapons fire ink onto paper. Well, they don’t really shoot ink, they just write like any other ballpoint pen.

Aero Spider Laser Cars Drive on Walls, Follow Laser Beams, Confuse Cats

Aero Spider Laser Cars Drive on Walls, Follow Laser Beams, Confuse Cats
Takara Tomy’s latest remote-control car is definitely unique. Not only does the Aero Spider Laser drive on walls or ceilings, it goes where you tell it to using a light gun. The gun-shaped controller projects a bright red light beam (not sure it’s really a laser beam) where you want the car to go, and the car follows along.

Everything is Portable With a Super Mario Box
If you own multiple gaming consoles, you already know that keeping everything organized can be a pain, particularly if you sometimes pack up and take it all to a friend’s house. Nightmare? For most of us, sure.

Joker Racer: Drive R/C Cars With Your Web Browser or iPhone
Joker Racer is a new service which lets you race remote-control cars from across the internet. The system uses a custom wireless computer that receives digital information via a Wi-Fi connection and translates your maneuvers into servo control signals for R/C cars.

Bioshock 2 Eve Hypodermic Syringe: Sterilize Before Using

Bioshock 2 Eve Hypodermic Syringe: Sterilize Before Using
While most everyone I know has been heading off to get a flu shot, I’d personally rather get injected with a dose of Bioshock’s EVE serum instead of a supposedly dead H1N1 virus grown in chicken eggs.

Electronic Rock Guitar Shirt: Air Guitar on Steroids

Electronic Rock Guitar Shirt: Air Guitar on Steroids
The thinking geeks at ThinkGeek recently unleashed one of their most awesome creations: WEARABLE ROCK. Their Electronic Rock Guitar Shirt features a semi-guitar with 14 major chords – which were recorded from a real electric guitar – assigned to different areas on the neck, so you can play songs for real without really knowing how to play the guitar.

Roadkill Stuffed Animals Are Cute, Cuddly, Dead
Do your kids scare easily? Are they budding serial killers? Then these plush stuffed animals are probably not for them. On the other hand, if your kids are into gross stuff, and understand the difference between play and real life, these car-flattened stuffed animals might be fun sitting beneath the Christmas tree this year.

Roombas Only Clean Houses to Support Their Sumo Wrestling Careers

Roombas Only Clean Houses to Support Their Sumo Wrestling Careers
That’s right, by day Roombas are just plain ol’ cleaners, but at night, they sneak off to Lithuania and compete in underground sumo competitions. Okay actually the 2009 Baltic Robot Sumo Cup wasn’t illegal; in fact it was sponsored by major robotics companies like iRobot and ABB.

Jin Saotome, Action Figure Customizer Extraordinaire

Jin Saotome, Action Figure Customizer Extraordinaire
I don’t know if he’s the action figure counterpart of console modder Ben Heck, but the customizer who goes by the moniker Jin Saotome does have an extremely long list of modified or custom made action figures.

Multipin Digital Pinball Machine Offers 17 Tables in One

Multipin Digital Pinball Machine Offers 17 Tables in One
Let me start out by saying I’ve always been a closet pinball fanatic. I can’t tell you how many hours of my youth I spent dropping quarters, flipping flippers, and nudging bumpers in that quest for that almighty extra ball or two.

The Only Thing Cuter Than a Lombax is a Lombax Toy

The Only Thing Cuter Than a Lombax is a Lombax Toy
A week ago, I finally purchased a PS3 Slim. Along with the console, one of the games I picked up was Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction – a game that (besides Uncharted 2: Among Thieves) pretty much justified my PS3 purchase.

Behold! a Real Banhammer!

Behold! a Real Banhammer!
I wish I could insert thunder & lightning sound effects to this post. For now let’s just use our imagination: Krakaabooom! The thread-deleting, commenter-obliterating, justice-dealing mythical meme finally finds its way into the real world! Artist/pioneer/blacksmith for a day Christopher Thompson has “conjured into existence the worlds only real Banhammer.”
