Strenco St-2 Steambot: Your Own Steam Powered Robot

Strenco St-2 Steambot: Your Own Steam Powered Robot
Batteries schmatteries. Electricity shmelectricity. Who needs modern energy sources when you can have scalding hot steam to power your gadgets? This unique robot from Germany gets its juice from good old H2O. Strenco’s ST-2 Steambot lumbers along thanks to a tiny copper Wilesco steam engine that’s been implanted in his chest cavity.

Solar-Powered Toy Monkey

Solar-Powered Toy Monkey
The solar-powered toy monkey is meant to help children “appreciate the power of alternative energy.”  It comes in a kit that customers have to assemble, so it can also be a fun way for you and your kids to bond.

Technabob’s Most Popular Posts of 2008
2008: What a year it was. Every year there are a handful of posts that really make readers go wild. But at the same time, not everyone can be expected to read every post on the site (as much as I’d love for you guys to).

Elekit Tornader Robot is Really a Ball

Elekit Tornader Robot is Really a Ball
This robot kit from Japan lets you build your own ball shaped robot that can pull off all sorts of wild and crazy moves as it gyrates around your floor. While the Tornader robot from Elekit can drive slowly around the floor like most remote-controlled vehicles, the real fun starts when you set the Tornader into one of its insane spin modes.

Bang Bang, My Zapper Shot You Down [Wii]

Bang Bang, My Zapper Shot You Down [Wii]
Some people want games to be as sweet as sugar, with showers of fresh blossoms and lollipops instead of blood, and frolicking in place of combat. Those aren’t the people who made this custom Wii Zapper.

Build Your Own Robot Arm!

Build Your Own Robot Arm!
Red5’s aptly named Robot Arm helps budding Dr. Wilys work on their assembling skills. £30 (appx. $44.23 USD) gets you a kit which you have to put together to form the arm, but I don’t think it’ll require Junkyard Wars-like skills; you don’t have to solder anything to put this one together.

1/4 Scale Rc Tank: is This Still a Toy?

1/4 Scale Rc Tank: is This Still a Toy?
I had my fair share of toy weapons as a kid: laser rifles that spark and pop when you pull the trigger, swords of all shapes and sizes, a slingshot. Apparently kids these days have much higher standards.

LEGO Reindeer-Bot Brings Creepy to Christmas

LEGO Reindeer-Bot Brings Creepy to Christmas
While no one can fault the crafstmanship or creativity of this Lego Reinbot, there’s just something about him that’s a little lacking in joviality. He’s got sinister style in spades, though, and while I like him, I’m pretty sure he thinks I’ve been naughty.

Millennium Falcon Sled Takes You Into Hyperspace

Millennium Falcon Sled Takes You Into Hyperspace
So maybe it won’t make the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs, but this Millennium Falcon sled should take you down the neighborhood snow mound in 10 seconds flat. The colorful snow sled doesn’t have the battle scars that the real Falcon has seen, but I’m sure after a few wipeouts (or laser cannon blasts from your neighbor with the personal TIE Fighter), you’ll have it looking pretty close.

Rocket Launcher Alarm Clock Blasts Into Orbit to Wake You Up

Rocket Launcher Alarm Clock Blasts Into Orbit to Wake You Up
Do you constantly oversleep? Does your snooze bar get a serious workout every morning? Here’s an alarm clock that should help you get your ass out of bed the next time your feel the urge to sleep in.

Foldskool Heroes: They’Re Boxy but They’Re Good

Foldskool Heroes: They’Re Boxy but They’Re Good
Got mad paper, scissor and tape skills? How about a fondness for old school video games and computers? Then have I got a fun afternoon project for you. Graphic designer Marshall Alexander’s cutout characters includes a veritable menagerie fantastical creatures and critters all made from boxy paper cutouts, but his latest series, Foldskool Heroes 3, has got to be my favorite.

Sony Touchscreen Walkman [Rumor]

Sony Touchscreen Walkman [Rumor]
Sony Insider claims that a new, touch screen-equipped Walkman will be unveiled at CES 2009. The player is also rumored to have a 3-in OLED display and will come in 16 GB and 32 GB versions.

A Better Way to Slime Your Nintendo Ds

A Better Way to Slime Your Nintendo Ds
Square Enix just had a big day in Japan, with details on the new Dragon Quest X announcement for the Nintendo Wii, and more on the slightly-older (and still unreleased) Dragon Quest IX, which is slated for the DS.

Custom Dead Space Figure Makes Horror Fun Again

Custom Dead Space Figure Makes Horror Fun Again
Real fans don’t buy action figures, whether or not they’re commercially available. Buying things is for wimps. No, the real fan breaks out the paint, dismembers currently-existing figures, and then the real fan makes their own action figures, like Chris Hooton did for the horror game Dead Space.

Cam-Baby Robot Cries When It Falls Down – Waaaaaaa!

Cam-Baby Robot Cries When It Falls Down – Waaaaaaa!
Remember that time the Honda ASIMO robot took a spill? At least it maintained its composure and dignity after the fall and just laid there. Not so with this new desktop robot. Japan’s CUBE Works decided it would be much more robot-like for their walking ‘bot to bawl its little eyes out if it ever falls over.

Crash Around in Gundam Slippers

Crash Around in Gundam Slippers
Having a bad morning? That’s no reason to should suffer alone! And what better way to pass on that a.m. headache than by adding kickin’ sound effects to your lurching gait? These squashy slippers sound off with the crash of earth-shredding stompy robotics with every step, turning a previously-mundane trip to the coffee machine into an epic journey of destruction.
