Annoying Neighbors? Take ‘Em Out With This Paintball Tank

Annoying Neighbors? Take ‘Em Out With This Paintball Tank
(Sub)urban warfare has a new face, and it goes by the name of Paintball Panzer. The pint-sized tank has a turret-mounted paintball gun which lets you fire rounds of paint ammo while keeping you safe and sound from the tomatoes and eggs which may be thrown at you in return.

Dig Dug Theme on the Piano

Dig Dug Theme on the Piano
Remember all those quarters you dumped into classic 80s arcade game Dig Dug? Apparently, you’re not the only one. A talented piano player going by the name arix001 has recorded a pretty darned accurate rendition of the frenetic music from the game.

R2-D2 Grinds Out Fresh-a Pepp-a

R2-D2 Grinds Out Fresh-a Pepp-a
Star Wars may be over 30 years old, but that hasn’t stopped those LucasFilm merchandising folks from cranking out fresh ideas. That’s why I’m absolutely loving these R2 unit pepper mills. Imagine having the boss over for dinner, asking if he’d like some pepper on his salad, then whipping out one of these little droids.

Sound Activated Mini Dancing Monkeys

Sound Activated Mini Dancing Monkeys
The title speaks for itself. Sound Activated Mini Dancing Monkeys has to be the best product name I’ve heard in a long time. What more can you ask for than mini monkeys that dance along to sounds?

They’ve Got the iPod, We’Ve Got the Ibird

They’ve Got the iPod, We’Ve Got the Ibird
Your fancy new iPod might have a touchscreen and Wi-fi, but I’m pretty sure it can’t do this. Not only does the iBird-1000 MP3 Player look like a bowtied penguin wearing headphones (I couldn’t make this stuff up), it can move its mouth and “sing” along with your music.

Adobe Photoshop Cs3 for iPhone

Adobe Photoshop Cs3 for iPhone
So now that you’ve snapped a few photos with your iPhone’s super-duper camera, where do you turn to edit your pix? Do you dock your iPhone with your computer, sync up with iTunes, then open the photos in your desktop image editing software?

Look Mr. Bubbles, We’ve Been Etch-a-Sketched

Look Mr. Bubbles, We’ve Been Etch-a-Sketched
Given the fact that for my entire life, I’ve been completely incapable of drawing anything but some straight lines and the occasional stair step on an Etch-A-Sketch, this image simply blew my head off. I was already duly impressed with the detail that artist the Etch-A-Sketchist has been able to squeak out of the little red and white drawing toy.

Domo-Kun Mimobot Drives Set to Bare Their Teeth

Domo-Kun Mimobot Drives Set to Bare Their Teeth
Already insanely popular with hipster-doofuses and the artsy-fartsy set around the globe, Domo-kun (aka “Domo”) is a strange little character that’s been seen on Japanese television screens for about ten years. Whether you think he’s cute, weird or disturbing, there’s something for everyone when it comes to the little brown guy.

Pac-Man and His Namco Pals in Pillow Form

Pac-Man and His Namco Pals in Pillow Form
Did you cut your teeth dropping every last quarter of your allowance into arcade machines back in the 80s? Here’s a little something to bring back those memories whenever parked on your couch or reclining in your La-Z-Boy.

Giant Inflatable Talking Robots Invade Wal-Mart

Giant Inflatable Talking Robots Invade Wal-Mart
I’ve always wanted a headline like that. It sounds like something out of Weekly World News. However, I assure you that this time it’s 100% accurate. The Mega Mech Airmagination Inflatable Robot has to be one of the worst product names I’ve heard in a long time.

Xbox 360: a Space Odyssey

Xbox 360: a Space Odyssey
Has your Xbox 360 ever overheated? Do you dread the three Red Rings of Death? Have I got a t-shirt for you. Inspired by the demented HAL9000 computer from the classic science fiction flick, 2001: A Space Odyssey, it shows the inimitable RRoD symbol along with the saying “I’m afraid I can’t let you play that, Dave.” The shirt’s designer clearly had just about enough with his 360s crapping out on him, so had to immortalize his frustrations with this clever t-shirt.

Low-Tech Tetris

Low-Tech Tetris
We don’t need no stinking video game consoles to get our Tetris on around here. No-siree, we like to play it using real 3-dimensional blocks instead. Tetris Tower 3D is the classic puzzle-piece video game brought to life.

Super Mario Brothers Keep Keys Company

Super Mario Brothers Keep Keys Company
Stuff that features the likeness of Mario and his video game pals never seems to get old around here, so why not check out these new keychains based on Nintendo’s favorite gaming icons. These Super Mario Light Mascot keychains from Bandai come in a set of five familiar faces from the classic Nintendo franchise.

USB Airplane Fan Ready to Take Off

USB Airplane Fan Ready to Take Off
This nifty airplane-inspired desktop fan will help you keep your cool while you’re slaving away surfing the Internet. The fan plugs into your USB port, and has a soft “propeller” that’s designed to not slice your digits off if you happen to get in its way.

USB Penguin Flash Drives Not Just for Linux Users

USB Penguin Flash Drives Not Just for Linux Users
While the flightless, aquatic avian may have come to symbolize the Linux operating system, Windows and Mac users don’t have to feel left out thanks to these fun penguin USB flash memory drives. Just like real penguins, they wear tiny striped scarves, and their heads flip open to reveal a USB connector (at least that’s what I thought I heard during my marine biology class).

Tops With Frickin’ Laser Beams

Tops With Frickin’ Laser Beams
The guys from online shop MyVirtualZone just tipped me off to these little playthings. The appropriately named Laser Top has a little laser beam that projects out of the side as you spin it around. While I actually think the effect of the LEDs and the laser are pretty cool when its spinning, I think that the music that plays as it goes is about as ridiculous as it gets.
