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.

Spray Cacas: Si Amigo, Caca.

Spray Cacas: Si Amigo, Caca.
Don’t know what “caca” means? Open up your brain tank ’cause here comes – okay it’s Spanish for poop. So what would a product named “Spray Cacas” be like? Let me tell you: it’s a product that will revolutionize pranks in the same way that the Naked Man revolutionized one night stands.

The Old Robots Website: the Robot Geek’S Happy Place

The Old Robots Website: the Robot Geek’S Happy Place
Someone at Robot’s Dreams just posted a link and a tiny snapshot of The Old Robots Website, nothing else; no intro, not even a goodbye. After spending nearly an hour at said website, I think I now know why: whoever posted that link must have been so eager to go back to browsing The Old Robots Website that he or she couldn’t be bothered with typing something else other than the link.

Runaway R/C Ramen Noodle Cart: Why? Why Not?

Runaway R/C Ramen Noodle Cart: Why? Why Not?
The latest in a long line of strange and wonderful gadgets from Japan, this remote-controlled vehicle is modeled after one of those Ramen noodle carts you might see on the streets of Yokohama (mama). The tiny noodle cart runs on 4 AA batteries, and can cruise along at up to 5 kilometers per hour.

Mega Man Boss Battle Rubik’s Cube: Still Easier to Finish Than the Video Game

Mega Man Boss Battle Rubik’s Cube: Still Easier to Finish Than the Video Game
I’ve never been able to solve a Rubik’s cube; the most I can do is “solve” one of the faces. I’m also not good at platformers, nor do I enjoy playing them (but I am really interested in playing Ratchet & Clank).

Lethal Pneumatic Ping Pong Gun: ‘Nuff Said.

Lethal Pneumatic Ping Pong Gun: ‘Nuff Said.
MAKE magazine fan/artist/inventor/sculptor/prototyper/modern da Vinci Ron Kissinger built an air-powered gun that turns ping pong balls into balls of fury. The gun has a magazine that can fire up to 14 shots. It takes a few seconds to load the ammo – i.e.

God Hand Robot Ready to Get You With His Kung-Fu Grip

God Hand Robot Ready to Get You With His Kung-Fu Grip
Give your robot a hand (or two) with these incredibly complex mechanical digits from Japan’s Crafthouse. Instead of the typical grippers you might find on a hobby robot, Crafthouse’s servo-controlled GOD HANDs give miniature robots a set of flexible digits that work much like their human masters’ appendages.

Horsey-Version of ‘Odin’ Summon Shows Up at Japanese Toy Show

Horsey-Version of ‘Odin’ Summon Shows Up at Japanese Toy Show
Someone over at Square Enix must be a fan of Transformers. I say this because for some reason, all Final Fantasy’s classic “summons” now have alternate vehicle modes in Final Fantasy XIII. For example, Shiva is now summoned as two ladies who combine to form some sort of lesbian motorcycle.

Takaratomy Micropets-I Robots Will Kill You With Cuteness

Takaratomy Micropets-I Robots Will Kill You With Cuteness
Cuter than a bowl of kittens covered in marshmallows and sprinkles, these little electronic playthings are enough to make me want to puke a rainbow. Each of TakaraTomy’s Micropets-i miniature desktop robo-playthings has a tiny little mind of its own.

DIY Toymaking in These Our Modern Times

DIY Toymaking in These Our Modern Times
Once upon a time, making a toy was as simple as whittling a rough shape in a piece of wood, or tying a few rags together. Today? You’ve got to have LEDs and microchips up in that business.
