Super Mario Goomba Cufflinks Are Hot, or Not
These pixelated cufflinks feature the dreaded goombas of Super Mario Bros. lore. Etsy crafter pixelparty makes them from shrink plastic (like ShrinkyDinks?) and silver-tone hardware.

Breathe Heavy on the Beach With Darth Vader Kites
This summer, indulge your inner Sith lord and dominate the beach with an ominous Darth Vader kite. While I’m not sure “heavy black masks” plus “outdoor family activity” is really a match made in Naboo, these are some cool kites that will make you the envy of the picnic posse.

While this doesn’t really qualify as a techie gadget or a video game, I came across this quirky game and thought it was just too good to pass up. Instead of knocking over some ordinary pins with this bowling game, you knock over a bunch of little plastic lawn gnomes.

Dork Up Your Dinner With Pc Salt and Pepper Shakers

Dork Up Your Dinner With Pc Salt and Pepper Shakers
These salt and pepper shakers are made to look like the S and P letter keys on your computer keyboard! They come with this cool box to complete the qwertastic look.

8-Bit Nintendo Does Music Videos

8-Bit Nintendo Does Music Videos
While these brief musical interludes won’t win any prizes for their sweeping cinematography, they do win a place in my heart for being put together using some good old fashioned 8-bit gaming technology.
