Mario’s Real Life: Not a Pretty Sight

Mario’s Real Life: Not a Pretty Sight
This clip features the real life story of the famous plumber’s addiction to those little magic mushrooms… The video, by P0YKPAC is a sad, sad tale, but the (mildly NSFW) clip is really quite funny. Mario’s struggles with the “stuff” lead him down a path of self destruction and it all ends with tragic consequences.

This desktop aquarium lets you enjoy the beauty of some of earth’s most mysterious creatures from the comfort of your own home.

It’s Toast-Errific… the Toast Printer
Sure, we’ve seen toast with images of Elvis, Jesus and other famous cultural icons, but this device lets you create any image you’d like, in toast form. The computer controlled toast burner uses a specially modified CNC fabricator with a hot air gun in its carriage.

Takaratomy Helibot Toy Helps Man Fly

Takaratomy Helibot Toy Helps Man Fly
This new toy from TakaraTomy Japan features a little humanoid who can fly. The little guy wears a backpack with a helicopter-like set of rotors to propel him into the skies. Special balancing rods keep the whole contraption from flipping over wildly through the air (although that sounds kinda cool.) The CAUL (Car Action Unit’s Line, whatever that means) Helibot can fly for about 5 minutes on a full battery charge, and can be remotely operated up to 90 feet away using the included 2.4GHz

Real Fake Watches Can’t Tell Time

Real Fake Watches Can’t Tell Time
German designer Linda Kostowski designed these wacky wearable artworks that look like watches, but they’re really totally phony. Cut from leather, laser-embellished, then hand-assembled to look like wristwatches, realfakewatches will set you up with a timepiece that says, “who cares what time it is?”

It’s Super Mario in Toast Form

It’s Super Mario in Toast Form
I’ve been dying for an excuse to feature one of my favorite artists, Dan Goodsell on my blog, but his whimsical paintings never seemed quite appropriate for Technabob. Today, Dan gave me just enough of an excuse by when he jumped into the video gaming world.

Can’t Afford Bluetooth? Try This Cell Phone Accessory.

Can’t Afford Bluetooth? Try This Cell Phone Accessory.
Personally, I can’t stand those people who walk down the street with their Bluetooth headsets on, talking into space. But if you’re one of those people who just can’t possibly be bothered by holding your cell phone in your hand, have I got an invention for you. Consisting of a pair of giant rubber bands (in case you break one,) the kit lets you fasten your mobile phone to the side of your head, thus freeing your hands for whatever important tasks you need them for.

The Poker Chip USB Flash Drive

The Poker Chip USB Flash Drive
The gimmicky USB device du Jour is this flash memory drive that looks like a poker chip. The drive itself isn’t anything fancy, but the fact that it slides into the chip-shaped container for storage makes it a little more fun. The Memorex Poker Chip Flash Drive won’t win any awards for storage capacity, weighing in at modest 1GB, but it’s a fun gift for the poker addict in your life.

This light projector casts an ever-changing animation of the phases of the moon onto your wall. The moon phase projector from Banpresto can project a 2 foot diameter moon image from about 6 feet away. The projector gradually changes between all of the lunar phases over the course of about an hour.

Chocolate + Calculator = Choculator

Chocolate + Calculator = Choculator
Have a sweet tooth? Well don’t try to bite into this chocolate bar or you’ll get a mouth full of plastic and glass. This may look frighteningly like a real chocolate bar, but it’s actually a pocket calculator. The Choc-U-Lator is cleverly packaged in a wrapper that would fool just about any chocoholic.

Wacky Cloth iPod Nano Cases by Annamatic

Wacky Cloth iPod Nano Cases by Annamatic
These hand sewn cases for the iPod Nano are pretty goofy looking if you ask me. They’re certainly not the typical sleek metal or plastic cases you usually see. Individually crafted by artist Anna Lee (a.k.a.

Whac-a-Mole in Your Pocket

Whac-a-Mole in Your Pocket
Remember the old Whac-a-Mole games from the carnival when you were a kid? Now you can have your own mini-version of the game wherever you go. This pint-sized version of the stress-inducing game comes to us from Japan’s Epoch Games.

Fake Wii Channel: Wii Bday

Fake Wii Channel: Wii Bday
Wondering what Nintendo might fill up all of those available channel slots with on the Wii? Artist-designer Paul Pape has come up with this interesting vision for a new channel, the Wii Bday Channel. The fake channel is actually a 30th birthday greeting that Pape created for a friend of his (who happens to be a fan of The Doors, hence the music.)

Have You Filed That T.P.S. Report Yet?
ThinkGeek has been on a roll lately with some great cubicle schwag inspired by the cult classic movie, Office Space. This desk embellishment is perfect for those of you who just can’t get enough meaningless corporate awards.
