While it’s not really an accurate reenactment of the way Sonic the Hedgehog plays, this slot car racing set still looks like it could be fun for at least 3 or 4 minutes. The set comes with a pair of wired remote controls, and wheeled versions of Sonic and Tails to race around the 4-foot oval loop track.

Nyko Zoom Case is Coming to Make Your Dsi Less Portable

Tomotaka Takahashi, creator of the high endurance EVOLTA robot, recently showed off his new robot, ROPID. The name is supposedly a combination of rapid and robot, so it was either ROPID or RABOT. The cute robot is about 15 inches tall and can jump about 3 inches high.

The Real Ghostbusters… Halloween Costume
I can’t say whether or not this Proton Pack will actually trap ghosts, but from this brief glimpse, there is one thing I can say for certain: this badass project is sure to score the top prize at Halloween costume contests, and isn’t that worth more than a ghost in a box?

Sakasa Master Japan Reverse Voice Recorder Does Exactly What Its Name Says
This odd little gadget from Japan is perfect for placing subliminal messages in the background of epic rock albums.

LEGO Gekkos Scare the Crap Out of Minifig Snake
MOCPages member/MGS fan/Brick master Rags naRock made cuter versions of GEKKOs, the nimble, creepy, bovine-like killing machines in Metal Gear Solid 4, and they just make me wish for a LEGO Metal Gear game. Check out the rest of the pictures, they’re a real treat.

The Lone Wanderer in Brickville [Fallout 3]

Dante Figure Writes Epic Poems, Then Rips Your Arms Off
This unpainted figure is supposed to be 14th century poet Dante Alighieri. Dante was a lot of things: creative genius, devout Catholic, a man in love, a man in pain . . . But he was certainly never a scythe-totin’, demon-slayin’ loose cannon veteran of the Crusades who doesn’t play by the rules.

Desktop Arm Wresting Involves No Actual Arms or Wrestling
If you’re too much of a girly-man to actually arm wrestle your friends, then here’s something that should let you show off your physical prowess without flexing too much muscle. I actually think they should have called this desktop game “Thumb WrestleMania”, since your arms aren’t going to be doing much more than keeping your hand from falling off while your thumb-mash your way to victory.

Teeny Tiny R2-D2 Ready to Hack Open Tiny Blast Doors
MAKE is calling this the world’s smallest R2-D2, and who knows? It might be. I’m not sure whether or not there’s a movement out there dedicated to fitting a beloved ‘bot into a tiny shell, but if there is, this guy’s creation may just be the champion of all time, since this R2 makes that AA battery he’s standing next to look pretty hefty.
