Kill Time and the Undead With the Zombie Shooting Gallery

Kill Time and the Undead With the Zombie Shooting Gallery
Video games with zombies are all the rage nowadays, and you’ve probably tried at least one of ’em. But what if you’re at the office? What if your Xbox 360 RRODs again? What if there’s no electricity?

Ableton Novation Launchpad Controls Music With Lots of Lights and Buttons

Ableton Novation Launchpad Controls Music With Lots of Lights and Buttons
For digital musicians who have longed for a performance controller for Ableton Live, you’ll be totally stoked to check out this cool new control pod that lets you interact with Ableton Live in real time. Designed as a collaboration between Ableton and Novation, the new Launchpad is a dedicated controller that offers a 64-button grid of backlit buttons which can be used to create and display music sequences using the same sort of interactive interface you might find in a Monome or a Tenori-On.

Star Wars by Gaslight: R2-D2 Goes Steampunk

Star Wars by Gaslight: R2-D2 Goes Steampunk
When I think steampunk, I must say that my mind does not then go immediately to Star Wars. But it’s a rule of the Internet that if two things exist, they must be put together. Hence, the steampunk R2-D2.

Amigurumi Prince Ready to Roll Up All the Yarn

Amigurumi Prince Ready to Roll Up All the Yarn
The world of Katamari Damacy is a strange one, to be sure, but it sure is cute. The Prince and his colorful cousins are each cuter than the others, and though the idea of sticking people and animals to a giant ball and then rolling them around is pretty horrific if you think about it, in Katamari, even this sort of dire torture manages to be adorable.

Master Sword & Hylian Shield Replicas: It’S Dangerous to Cosplay Alone! Take These.

Master Sword & Hylian Shield Replicas: It’S Dangerous to Cosplay Alone! Take These.
Fauxblademaster Aaron makes “convention safe” video game swords and shields in his spare time. He hasn’t made a ton of them yet, but each of his creations are very detailed. Here’s one of his creations, a fiberglass replica of the Twilight Princess version of the Master Sword, Link’s trusty weapon in the Legend of Zelda series.

Optimized Prime: Customized Revenge of the Fallen Optimus Prime Toy on Ebay

Optimized Prime: Customized Revenge of the Fallen Optimus Prime Toy on Ebay
Just about the only thing good about the recent Transformers movie are the new versions of our beloved Autobots and Decepticons. Although I’m sure some of you will say that even the new designs suck. Also the movie changes POVs and angles every nanosecond so we hardly got to appreciate the designs anyway.

Cutie Cthulhu for Cool Cult Kiddies

Cutie Cthulhu for Cool Cult Kiddies
Some babies are just hipper than others. You can tell by their expensive t-shirts and awesome accessories. It’s not any baby who can rock a cushy Cthulhu play blanket, you know? Craftster FicklePegasus has turned an office joke into a handmade gift fit for only the coolest of babies: a soft and cuddly Cthulhu, complete with tentacular arms of love that can hold toys to engage tykes.

Heroes Aren’t Born, They’re Made . . . From LEGO

Heroes Aren’t Born, They’re Made . . . From LEGO
If there’s a reason why most things that come from Pixar are so geek-friendly, it’s probably because most of the people at Pixar are geeks. Take Angus MacLane. He was the Lead Animator on WALL-E, which was well received by most geeks for obvious reasons (robots).

Sega Taikan Mini Arcade Cabinets: Video Games for Mice

Sega Taikan Mini Arcade Cabinets: Video Games for Mice
Now that you’ve got your Donkey Kong, Pac-Man and Tetris retro mini arcade cabinets, it’s time to add to your tiny arcade collection with a few slightly newer games. These 4-inch long mini arcade games are modeled after classics from SEGA’s arcade hey-day.

Spock Monkey: Half-Vulcan, Half-Sock, Half-Monkey

Spock Monkey: Half-Vulcan, Half-Sock, Half-Monkey
That’s right: each Spock Monkey is a combination of three halves, resulting in one logical, emotionally detached yet huggable primate. I used Vulcan math to calculate Spock Monkey’s constitution. Each Spock Monkey is lovingly handmade, so each of them is unique.

You Can’T Take the Yarn From Me [Firefly]

You Can’T Take the Yarn From Me [Firefly]
Maybe I haven’t been looking in the right places, but I haven’t noticed an overwhelming amount of crafts inspired by the tragically short-lived Firefly and the accompanying movie, Serenity. Even if I had, however, this little knit rendition of the ship would probably trump most of them.

Wicked Evolution Jr: Half Van, Half Monster Robot, Half-Assed Transformation

Wicked Evolution Jr: Half Van, Half Monster Robot, Half-Assed Transformation
According to the list of Autobots at Wikipedia there are at least 8 Autobots that transform into vans or SUVs, including the popular ambulance Ratchet and the gutsy Ironhide. Unfortunately 0 out of those 8 Autobots are real (I think).

The Cubes: You’Re Probably One of Them

The Cubes: You’Re Probably One of Them
Ah, the office life. Waking up early, wearing”business casual”, pretending to work for 8 hours, getting promoted to a different position but with the same duties and salary (from Domestic Purchasing Specialist to Local Marketing Officer.

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.

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.
