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.

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.”

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.

Little Dude Could be My Favorite USB Hub Ever

Little Dude Could be My Favorite USB Hub Ever
There’s something that’s just right about this USB hub. The little guy strikes a near-perfect balance between design, simplicity and functionality (although that’s the one place it falls a little short). Kikkerland’s USB Hub Man has flexible wire arms and legs with a port at the end of each one.

Rocket Phone Blasts Off

Rocket Phone Blasts Off
Here’s a wacky mobile phone out of China that looks like it’s ready to lift off into orbit. The Shenzhou VII rocket phone conjures up images of 1950s science fiction with its orange spaceship design. While it is definitely different, the shape isn’t particularly practical.

Guide Dog Lamp Lights Up When You Call It

Guide Dog Lamp Lights Up When You Call It
Industrial designer Nicolas Gonzalez Garrido has created this nifty lamp that looks like a dog. It’s called the Guide Dog because when you enter a dark room and whistle, it illuminates to show you the way.

Woofy the Cable Dog Hits the Party Circuit

Woofy the Cable Dog Hits the Party Circuit
Designer Gabriel Nigro couldn’t stand the rats’ nest of cables that were strewn about his floor, but didn’t want some industrial-looking cord management system. So he created everyone’s new best friend, Woofy the Cable Dog. Woofy conceals cables inside his belly to keep all your wires nice and tidy.

Track & Field Challenge Like Wii Fit Lite

Track & Field Challenge Like Wii Fit Lite
Remember the arcade classic Track & Field? Well Konami has updated the game and turned it into one of those games that just hooks up to your TV. Instead of the blister-inducing button mashing of the 1980s arcade game, the new Track & Field Challenge actually comes with a two-player foot controller mat that makes you actually work up a sweat when you play.   There are ten different events including the 100m dash, long jump, javelin throw, hurdles and more.

Bandroid Robotic Trio Jams to Your Tunes

Bandroid Robotic Trio Jams to Your Tunes
This trio of pint-sized robots connects to your media player and rocks out to the beat of your favorite tracks. The robotic musical group, known as Bandroid, has a lead guitar player, keyboardist and drummer, which can each wildly gesticulate to the beat.
