Adorable Left 4 Dead Zombie Just Ain’T Right

Adorable Left 4 Dead Zombie Just Ain’T Right
Zombies are supposed to be frightening. They represent a never-ending wave of hungry and unstoppable death, and that’s just no fun. So what’s with all the cute zombie plushies? deviantARTist think-purple admits that this plush may not be perfectly crafted, but it’s certainly good at draining all the menace from the leaping Hunters from Left 4 Dead.

I can’t believe this isn’t the first time that a rubber band machine gun has been featured on this blog. Dammit. I wasn’t even aware that rubber band machine guns existed until I read this article at JapanProbe.

An Xbox 360 for a Black Widow
If you don’t like spiders, this one’s probably not for you. Eye-catching, to say the least. Or is that fly-catching? Oh ho ho. This particular custom Xbox 360 mod is the work of deviantARTist AceCasanova, who has done a number of console paintjobs, like this one: Photo’s a little blurry, but the color is just incredible.

Segatoys Dream Squirrels: Do Androids Dream of Electric Acorns?

Segatoys Dream Squirrels: Do Androids Dream of Electric Acorns?
Nope, you’re not looking at Chip and Dale here. These fuzzy, furry creations are the latest robotic animal creations from the demented sick creative minds of SegaToys Japan. I suppose the Yumepet Dream Squirrel is actually pretty cute.

Nintendo Mini Classics Bring Back Memories of Game & Watch

Nintendo Mini Classics Bring Back Memories of Game & Watch

Facebook and Dsi: a Match Made in Social Networking Heaven
Facebook has hit the Nintendo DSi–in Japan, at least–in a limited, if useful sense. The combo was announced at E3 with little fanfare, and no detail, but thanks to a recent update, Japanese DSi owners can now upload pictures they’ve taken with the handheld straight to Facebook.

The folks at Cubeecraft just posted a cardboard NES console template, which you can download here, but they didn’t make templates for cardboard NES controllers. Or cardboard NES games. Or a cardboard power cord. Or a cardboard RCA jack.

Choken Bako Dog Bank Will Eat Anything That’S Put on Its Bowl
The Choken-Bako dog bank features a hyperactive dog for a teller. Just place your money on its bowl and it will “eat” it. Actually there’s a slot on the bowl that’s connected to the coin box; the dog’s mouth just pushes the money into the slot.

Sushi Train Restaurant and Game: Sushinkansen

Sushi Train Restaurant and Game: Sushinkansen
Compared to all the other Japanese gadgets we’ve seen, the Sushi Train Restaurant and Game is only mildly Japanese – i.e. not so weird. It’s a literal take on the popular conveyor belt sushi restaurants, which are also known as – wait for it – sushi trains.

Lite-Brite Cubed: Makin’ Things With Light 4x

Lite-Brite Cubed: Makin’ Things With Light 4x
I have fond memories of playing with a Lite-Brite when I was growing up. As a matter of fact, I can’t get that damned commercial out of my head at the moment. Of course, most of those childhood memories were those of frustration from either losing half of the colored pegs between the couch cushion, or my complete inability to create anything other than the barely legible text “Lite Brite” made up of pegs.
