Nothing goes better with a game of 80’s classic arcade game Pac-Man than getting completely looped doing shots of your favorite booze. At least that’s what I think Namco was trying to say with this set of commemorative Pac-Man shot glasses.
One of life’s great guilty pleasures has to be the classic table game of foosball. But how can you incorporate this pub favorite into your civilized modern lifestyle?
The artisans over at Britain’s Trifle Design have the answer with this contemporary Offside Foosball Coffee Table.
Actually, you can only make your own fake Atari 2600 box art with this fun online image generator, but it’s still fun.
You can create your own goofy labels over at Label Maker 2600. The site lets you upload your own image, a game title, as well as your colors and copyright notice.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
