Human CD Holder: Lifts 10x His Own Weight

Human CD Holder: Lifts 10x His Own Weight
This little fella is using every bit of his strength to keep your CD collection in order. The Human CD Holder is a clever design concept, featuring a pint-sized humanoid lifting up a “giant” box of CDs. It looks like each one should hold about 10 discs, but I’d love to see a bunch of them in one place, holding an entire CD collection.

Nintendo Console Gets All Soft and Squishy

Nintendo Console Gets All Soft and Squishy
Check out this awesome plush fabric Nintendo Entertainment System. Nintendo fan and seamstress extraordinaire blueblythe, hand-sewed and embroidered this amazing stuffed-felt tribute to the classic 8-bit gaming console of yore. She not only cranked out a console, but two game cartridges, a controller, a light gun and interchangeable velcro screens of Mario and Duck Hunt. All I can say is… Brava Blythe!

Battery Eater Chews Up Old Aa-Cells

Battery Eater Chews Up Old Aa-Cells
Here’s a gadget that doesn’t really serve a useful purpose, but somehow still seems like a good idea. Just when you though that AA-battery was on its final last breath, why not give it one last sendoff.

Wii-Mote Controlled Typography

Wii-Mote Controlled Typography
I came across this cool video on YouTube that shows off some pretty cool interaction with Nintendo’s Wii-mote controller. The video shows off a nifty typographic animation designed by Erik Loyer which lets the user move the Wii-mote to influence the rendering of the text.

The Digital Newspaper Machine Mash Up

This has gotta be the best hack I’ve seen in a while… Scott Walker’s DigitalBox Newspaper Machine automatically displays the day’s latest news on an LCD screen that’s installed in the front of an old newspaper vending machine.

Air Guitar Pro: No Strings Attached

Air Guitar Pro: No Strings Attached
Fancy yourself an aspiring rock star, but have no instrumental talent? That’s okay, thanks to this new gadget from Japan’s TakaraTomy. The Air Guitar Pro starts out looking like the end of a guitar neck, but that’s where the resemblance ends.

Cubicle Periscope Lets You Spy on Coworkers

Cubicle Periscope Lets You Spy on Coworkers
This wacky spy gadget from ThinkGeek lets you peer over the walls of your cubicle and look out over the wall to see what else is going on around you. The Sportscope Cubicle Periscope was originally designed for viewing sporting events, but is ideally suited for snooping around your office to check up on your office-mates.

Nintendo Ds Pencil Stylus Won’t Write on Your Screen

Nintendo Ds Pencil Stylus Won’t Write on Your Screen
While the thought of someone writing on the screen of my Nintendo DS Lite with a Number 2 pencil makes me cringe, these clever styli won’t actually do any damage to your console’s delicate touchscreen. The Official Nintendo DS Pencil Stylus really does look like a pencil, but has a soft tip that protects your DS screen from any scratches.

The Wii-Mote Theramin

The Wii-Mote Theramin
Without a doubt, the theramin is one of the oddest musical instruments ever invented. Usually heard cranking out spaceship sounds in 1950’s B-movies, it’s otherworldy sounds are unmistakeable and truly quirky. So it is with much glee that I bring you the Wii-mote powered theramin, playing the inimitable Theme from Star Trek.

Giant Nintendo Controller Won’t Fit in Your Hands

Giant Nintendo Controller Won’t Fit in Your Hands
You won’t have any trouble finding the buttons on this massive replica of Nintendo’s famous NES controller. Game fan Philip Torrone and his team of builders put together this 5-foot wide joypad for the recently completed 2007 Maker Faire.

Never Put Your Money in This Bank

Never Put Your Money in This Bank
I’m always wondering about those suspicious looking automatic teller machines you see in every little bodega and convenience store these days. You know… Will my ATM card get eaten? Will they steal my PIN number? Will it wipe all the money out of my bank account?

Marka27 Mini God Speakers Look Amazing

Marka27 Mini God Speakers Look Amazing
These totally outrageous, limited edition speakers are the product of artist/designer Marka27’s imagination. These dramatic Mini God Brazil speakers make a bold statement wherever you need a little sound. Looking like a mash-up between an ancient Mayan civilization and futuristic pop design sensibilities, these vinyl figures stand 16-inches tall and have a functional speaker built into their bellies.

Fan Displays Moving Images on Spinning Leds

Fan Displays Moving Images on Spinning Leds
ThinkGeek is at it again. This time they’re offering up a fan which can load up animated GIF files from your computer and display them in full color on the blades of the fan. Inspired by those light-up LED spinner rims that might have turned up on Pimp My Ride, The LED Art Fan hooks up to your computer via a serial connection, and lets you download up to 128 frames of art into its internal memory.
