The $10 Playstation 3

The $10 Playstation 3
The guys over at Destructoid dug up this $10 beauty. It’s a cheap gaming system which looks NOTHING like Sony’s PlayStation 3, but has the audacity to package itself as a “SONY PS3.” The system actually appears to be one of those shoddy “Famiclone” systems designed to play old games from the Nintendo Entertainment System (aka “Famicom” in Japan.)

Robot Thrill Ride Seems Like a Bad Idea

Robot Thrill Ride Seems Like a Bad Idea
Some sick individual strapped their buddy to a seat at the end of a FANUC industrial robot’s arm and then ran him through the spin cycle. They captured all of the fun and festivities in this video clip: I wouldn’t want to be the one sitting in that chair.

What Do the Beatles and the Wii have in Common?

What Do the Beatles and the Wii have in Common?
While I’m not certain what the connection is between the Fab Four and Nintendo’s latest game console, I do find this T-shirt design quite amusing anyway. The Let it Bii shirt is 20 bucks from Nerdy Shirts features Nintendo “Mii” avatars designed to look like John, Paul, Ringo and George.

Own the Car of the Future

Own the Car of the Future
If you thought the technology in the 2002 flick, Minority Report was impressive, you can now own one of the very cool futuristic cars that Tom Cruise drove in that film. One of the three custom-built Lexus 2054 concept cars made for the Cameron Crowe film will be put up for auction next month.

LCD Monitor Death by Firing Squad

Best Katamari Damacy T-Shirt Ever

Best Katamari Damacy T-Shirt Ever
I know this might seem a bit dated, but I just found this and thought it was too funny to ignore. This t-shirt speaks for itself, simply stating “This is how I roll.” alongside a graphic of the funky Japanese games’ protagonist pushing a big old Katamari.

Dangerbomb: Wake Up or Else

Dangerbomb: Wake Up or Else
Bring out your inner Jack Bauer with this alarm clock import from Japan. Once the DangerBomb’s alarm goes off, you’ll need to quickly disconnect one of three color-coded wires to prevent the DangerBomb from “exploding.” To keep you on your toes, the alarm will pick a random color coded wire that must be detached within a pre-set amount of time.

Rubik’s Revolution: the Cube Goes Techno

Rubik’s Revolution: the Cube Goes Techno
I’ve been wondering why the old Rubik’s Cube has been making appearances all over the place lately, with a significant amount of screen time dedicated to it in Will Smith’s craptacular The Pursuit of Happyness. Now we know it was all product placement geared towards the upcoming release of the new Rubik’s Revolution, a modern update to the classic brainteaser.

Free Itunes With Zune Purchase. Huh? Wha?

Free Itunes With Zune Purchase. Huh? Wha?
Whoops! CompUSA made a bit of a blunder this week when it advertised a free $15 iTunes gift card with the purchase of any Microsoft Zune 30GB Music Player. Now if you could only figure out a way to get those DRM locked tunes from iTunes to the Zune, you’d be all set.

For anyone who’s played the game Saints Row for the Xbox 360, you know it’s riddled with graphical glitches and hiccups. Now some dude by the name of Cabel has put together a fun little musical ditty that mashes up these glitches with an off-off-off-Broadway musical.

Whoops: Sony Posts Pgr3 Screenshot as Gran Turismo HD
The faux pas of the day comes to us courtesy of master of all things Xbox, Major Nelson. Apparently, some junior web developer over at Sony mistakenly used a screenshot of the Xbox hit racing game, Project Gotham Racing 3 in an advertisement for Gran Turismo 4.
