While most of us have driven a vehicle while we’re on our cell phone, this is the first time I’ve seen a mobile phone that actually is a car.
From what I can tell, this mobile phone from China is doing its best impression of an Audi A9 concept car.
Remember the expletive-spouting orange dude from 1980s arcade game, Q*bert? Well the strange little guy has now been immortalized in this awesome handmade video game quilt by Lenore, an artist over an Evil Mad Scientist Labs.
Have a juvenile sense of humor? Now you can get out your immature tendencies with this remote controlled version of the “classic” Whoopee Cushion.
Just place the battery-operated receiver unit under your unsuspecting coworker’s chair, head back to your cubicle and press the wireless trigger and let the mayhem ensue.
Now you can have your own tiny arcade machine anywhere you take your Sony PSP portable gaming system. These arcade cardboard stands make your PSP look like it’s an arcade game cabinet (in miniature of course).
For those of us who were born in the pre-MP3 era, the idea of creating a custom mix of your favorite tunes and putting them on a cassette tape was one of the most romantic things that you could do for your significant other (unless you happened to include “That’s What Friends Are For” or “The Breakup Song” on there.)
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.
