World’s Largest Arcade Machine Debuts

World’s Largest Arcade Machine Debuts
G4TV’s Attack of the Show has put together this unbelievably large cabinet for playing classic arcade games. It’s so tall that players have to stand on stepladders just to reach the controls. The cabinet measures in at over 13-feet tall, and has a 70-inch screen for massively monstrous gaming action.

24: the Early Years

24: the Early Years
Check out this never before seen episode of 24, shot back in the early 1990s. Apparently, CTU’s technology hadn’t come along quite as far as it has today. Seriously, I don’t know what’s funnier, the AOL and Prodigy references, or the old brick cordless phone.

Exploding Piggy Bank Sends Coins Flying

Exploding Piggy Bank Sends Coins Flying
Put your cash in this bomb-shaped piggy bank and if you’re not a good saver, you’ll be punished. The electronic piggy bank waits for you to add coins too it every day. If you’re not consistent, it’ll explode, sending coins all over your desktop. If you don’t add coins each and every day, the bank will start to vibrate, flash its lights and make sounds once an hour until you pay up.

Chocolate Laptop Makes Computing Tasty

Chocolate Laptop Makes Computing Tasty
Do you ever find yourself sitting at your computer, toiling away in your e-mail box when those late afternoon hunger pangs hit you? This laptop out of Germany might help you get your blood sugar going. Nope, the Chocolap isn’t a functional computer, rather, it’s a fake laptop made from cardboard, and loaded with a delicious edible chocolate keyboard in the middle.

Pac-Man Guitar Rocks

Pac-Man Guitar Rocks
Okay, okay, enough about pac-man already, right? Wrong. Check this awesome custom made guitar by Ian Schneller over at Specimen Products. This sweet 25 1/2″ scale instrument is made of ebony, basswood, and maple with mother of pearl accents, and is finished in the happy familiar yellow lacquer of our beloved arcade character. Bonus: twelve blinking lights in the headstock controlled by a variable switch in the eyeball!

Flash Drives Look Like Cans of Soda Pop

Flash Drives Look Like Cans of Soda Pop
These USB flash memory drives get their inspiration from aluminum soda cans. While they won’t actually quench your thirst, they will store plenty of your files when you pop their tops. The miniature soda cans come in a metallic blue or chrome silver finish which does a great job simulating a shiny aluminum can.

Arcade Cabinet + Beer Keg = Geek Heaven

Arcade Cabinet + Beer Keg = Geek Heaven
This could very well be the best home arcade cabinet of all time. Not only does it include a fully decked-out arcade emulation system, complete with real arcade controls, it also happens to have a kegerator built in. That’s right.

Pac-Man Text Adventure: Turn Left, Eat Dots

Pac-Man Text Adventure: Turn Left, Eat Dots
I know, I know. The year is 2007 and I’m writing two stories in a row about Pac-Man. But I really couldn’t resist this one. Pac-Txt is a great mashup between the classic 1980s arcade game and Zork.

Tiny Piano Conceals CD Player

Tiny Piano Conceals CD Player
I’ve pretty much weened myself off of compact discs since my very first iPod, but for those of you who still enjoy your music in a flat, round format, here’s a unique CD player to listen to your oldies on. The Cathay PK-24 desktop stereo looks like a miniature grand piano, but when you pop its lid, there’s a CD player hiding in there.

Calculator Belt Buckle for Super-Duper-Geeks

Calculator Belt Buckle for Super-Duper-Geeks
If you wore one of those Casio calculator watches from the 80’s, here’s something else that just screams “I’m a geek, I have no girlfriend, and I don’t care.” The chrome calculator belt buckle lets you add, subtract, multiply and divide, all from the convenience of your waistline.

Mmmm… Donut Flash Drives

Mmmm… Donut Flash Drives
What better way to get your day going than with little chocolate donuts? Check out these little USB flash drives that happen to look like Homer’s favorite high-carb treat. In addition to the traditional chocolate frosting, they’re also available in strawberry (my personal favorite) and some weird green shade too (moldy donut?)

Mac-O-Lanterns Light the Way This Halloween

Mac-O-Lanterns Light the Way This Halloween
What better way to use a couple of old Macintosh computers? All it took was a little orange paint for the “pumpkin”, and a JPEG viewer application for the face. This is the best use for old Macs since the original MacQuarium.

With football season in full swing, why not arrive at your next tailgate party in style? This ride-on cooler not only speeds you along to your destination, it’ll keep your drinks and snacks nice and chilled on the way. This rechargeable electric scooter holds up to 24 cans of your favorite beverages, along with 8 pounds of ice right under your bum.

It’s the Great Laser Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

It’s the Great Laser Pumpkin, Charlie Brown
With Halloween just a couple of days away, it’s nice to know that geeks are feeling festive too. The guys over at Nova Lasers put together this awesome Jack-O-Lantern, illuminated by colored lasers. Candles? We don’t need no stinking candles!

Monster Piggy Banks Eat Your Money for Lunch

Monster Piggy Banks Eat Your Money for Lunch
I think these goofy guys look more like space aliens than monsters, but you get the point. Put your money in the mouth of these Money Monsters and they’ll gulp it down without so much as a “thank you”. While they might not be polite, that doesn’t mean the Money Monsters aren’t vocal.

Desktop Boat Speaker: Come Sail Away

Desktop Boat Speaker: Come Sail Away
Here’s a speaker for your computer that’s unlike anything I’ve seen before. The Nexspeaker FS-701SW sound system is designed to look like a wee sailboat that you can set on your desk. Left and right channel speakers are embedded into the sails, while the boat’s hull serves as the woofer.
