Nintendo Ds Lite Cell Phone Charm

Nintendo Ds Lite Cell Phone Charm
I’ve gotta hand it to the Japanese for this whimsical creation. It’s a little charm for your mobile phone that looks exactly like a tiny Nintendo DS Lite. You won’t be playing any games on this one though.

It’s a Me, LEGO Mario

It’s a Me, LEGO Mario
I came across this cool 3-dimensional LEGO sculpture of everyone’s favorite video game plumber (sorry Luigi) over on TechEBlog this morning. It must have take days for the artist to painstakingly recreate all of Mario’s details. They didn’t happen to credit the original artist, so if you happen to know who it is, let me know so I can give props to the guy or gal who made this awesome creation.

Arena: Motion Capture for the Masses

Arena: Motion Capture for the Masses
Budding 3D graphics and animation buffs, there’s a new reason to get excited this morning. A company called NaturalPoint has just announced a complete motion capture systems that only costs about $5,000. Traditional (if you can call them that) MoCap systems usually start around $30,000, and often much more.

Crispin Jones’ Tengu: LED Faced Virtual Companion

Crispin Jones’ Tengu: LED Faced Virtual Companion
SolidAlliance, makers of wacky things like USB drives that look like sushi and other edibles, has just revealed their latest creation. The Tengu is an interactive device that displays an animated face using an array of LEDs.

Photo of the Day: iPhone, Meet Windows

Photo of the Day: iPhone, Meet Windows
Apparently, those iPhone demo kiosks in AT&T stores are wolves in sheep’s clothing… Here’s an interesting thought: When you turn a Windows XP machine on it’s side, does it become an Apple? Apparently, these kiosks are really running on Dell machines and Samsung displays.

This Phone Will Self-Destruct in Five Seconds…

This Phone Will Self-Destruct in Five Seconds…
Remember that desktop self-destruct button I told you about a while back? Now you can carry a portable version, right there on your cell phone. This mini self-destruct switch is the latest in a long line of odd things that Japanese people are hanging from their mobile phones.

Mini Claw Machine is Grabilicious

Mini Claw Machine is Grabilicious
Remember those irritating claw machines from the arcades and carnivals? You know, the ones that always had one really great prize inside that weighed 10 pounds more than the claw could lift? Now you can get your own miniature one for your cubicle. This battery-powered mini claw machine provides all the fun and frustration of the full-sized version.

Rubik’s Cube Goes Into the Next Dimension

Rubik’s Cube Goes Into the Next Dimension
I’ve seen all sorts of variations on the original Rubik’s Cube puzzle, but never one quite like this. EastsheenCubes take multiple mini-cubes and join them together to form one crazy looking version of the classic mindbender.

T-Shirt of the Day: Segway Beta

T-Shirt of the Day: Segway Beta
Me thinks this is the absolute funniest t-shirt design I’ve seen in a while… Indie Tech’s brilliant Segway Beta T-Shirt is a must have for all hipsters, hipster-doofuses, geeks, dweebs, nerds and generaly cool people. I’ll be plunking down my credit card tonight for one of these $15 shirts.

Polar Bear Pours Cold Drinks

Polar Bear Pours Cold Drinks
Sometimes, I just wish I lived in Asia so I could easily get my hands on the great gadgets they crank out. My favorite find of the day has to be this Korean desktop cooler that looks like a polar bear. The perfect cure for a bland cubicle, the Marie Cool polar bear drink dispenser is just too goofy not to have one on your desk.

Magicwheel: 20 Mph on a Single Wheel

Magicwheel: 20 Mph on a Single Wheel
This dramatic looking mode of transportation is said to be the modern day replacement for the skateboard. Using a single large bicycle (or I guess that would be unicycle) wheel in front and a smaller caster in the rear for steering, it lets you achieve speeds up to 20 miles per hour, simply using your own leg strength to kick off.

Super Mario Subwoofer Paint Job

Super Mario Subwoofer Paint Job
I really dig the great job that Nintendo enthusiast Michael Karpinski did with his new subwoofer. He’s carefully painted it to match the classic “question mark” brick from the Super Mario game series. Looks like that little stuffed Yoshi won’t be long for the world when Michael cranks up his next big bass extravaganza.

Video Games Ruined My Life

Video Games Ruined My Life
The award for T-shirt of the week has to go to this die hard gamer’s tee from Threadless contributor Lawrence Pernica. The simply designed shirt uses a retro bitmap font and a couple of game “life” indicators to express this simple statement: “Video games ruined my life.

Powerizer Leg Springs: Perform Superhuman Feats

Powerizer Leg Springs: Perform Superhuman Feats
These crazy-looking contraptions strap on to your legs and feet, letting you fly high into the air and perform crazy stunts. The spring-loaded PoweriZers amplify the pressure of your jumps enabling you to perform death-defying feats of athleticism. Now I don’t need to tell you this, but bouncing ten feet in the air on something that combines a pogo stick and stilts isn’t for everyone.

Cupcake Speakers Sound Delicious

Cupcake Speakers Sound Delicious
These freshly baked cupcakes from Semk may look tasty, but you’ll probably chip a tooth on ’em if you try to bite in. That’s because they’re actually speakers, not cupcakes. Bummer. Yep, no delicious frosting, just bass and treble.
