Frozen Smiles Add Bite to Your Beverages

Frozen Smiles Add Bite to Your Beverages
There are a lot of offbeat options if regular ice just isn’t good enough for you, but if even those aren’t as weird as you’d like, you can always try some denture-shaped… uh… “cubes.” Frozen Smiles are styled as “not your grandfather’s ice tray,” but they don’t promise they aren’t made from your grandfather’s actual dentures. You never know–those icy grins may be perfect for your next Halloween party, or any other time you want to break the ice with unusual cocktails.

Happy V-Day: Love You More Than Xbox

Happy V-Day: Love You More Than Xbox
If your significant other is starting to suspect you may care more about Master Chief and Major Nelson’s Twitter, it might be time to offer tangible (and hilarious) proof to the contrary. Especially with Valentine’s Day coming up and all. This card tells it like it is (or like you want ’em to believe) with a simple message: I love you more than Xbox.

Have It Both Ways: Atari 360

We Love Katamari Paintings

We Love Katamari Paintings
The Katamari Damacy games are beautiful, addictive… and kind of a pain in the butt. You’ve got to get all this stuff, and the King of All Cosmos is so specific, and then there are all the cousins.

Fridgebuzzz Atari 400 Synth has Buttons, Knobs Galore

Fridgebuzzz Atari 400 Synth has Buttons, Knobs Galore
This wild looking analog synthesizer gets its body from a classic Atari 400 computer – but none of its brains. Created by Paul Rothman’s Fridgebuzzz Electronics (yes, that’s supposed to have 3 “z’s”), the simply named Atari Synth has more buttons and knobs than you can shake a stick at. The Atari Synth is a polyphonic 12-oscillator, 3 modulator square wave synthesizer that’s controlled by arcade-style pushbuttons and potentiometers.

Powermat Wirelessly Charges Devices Using Fringe Science. Not.
CES ’09 is in full swing, and one of the products on display at the show is Powermat Ltd.’s Powermat. The Powermat isn’t a phone or a big screen TV; it’s just a charger. But what makes it stand out is that it charges devices wirelessly; the largest model can even accommodate 4 devices at once.

Spps200 Portable Power Station:the Bmw M6 of Battery Packs

Spps200 Portable Power Station:the Bmw M6 of Battery Packs
Let it be known that I am not the one responsible for that analogy. Battery Geek Inc., makers of said battery pack, are to be commended for such an exquisite and refreshing figure of speech. So why is the SPPS200 200 Wh Portable Power Station the BMW M6 of battery packs?

Nopopo Batteries: Hey Pee, I See Urine My Battery!

Nopopo Batteries: Hey Pee, I See Urine My Battery!
Do you remember the urine filtering machine that Kevin Costner used in Waterworld? Do you remember Waterworld? What was I talking about again? Oh yes, batteries. Aqua Power System has developed batteries that can be recharged using fluids such as beer, apple juice, cola, saliva and urine. Aqua Power System is of course a Japanese company.

That’S No Pachinko Game: Planet Pachinko [Wiiware]

Microsoft Meeting at (Sony’S) Home

Microsoft Meeting at (Sony’S) Home
People have been using Linden Labs’ virtual world Second Life as a meeting space for a while, so I’m not surprised to hear that people are doing the same in PlayStation Home, Sony’s own avatar-driven online social community.

Custom Binary LED Watch is Bright, Bulky

Custom Binary LED Watch is Bright, Bulky
You could easily buy your own binary clock or watch, but is that really in the spirit of such a timepiece? One could easily argue that a purchased binary watch just isn’t quite geeky enough. If you want to show your real geek cred, you’ve got to bust out some tools and make your own. Ari’s hulking watch began life as a simple binary pocket watch, but at the urgings of the BenHeck.com

Apple Gloves to Warm Hands, Empty Wallets

Apple Gloves to Warm Hands, Empty Wallets
It can be hard to do anything while wearing gloves, much less get directions to that new sushi place with your iPhone. Sure, you could just take off your gloves every time you need to do something, wear the fingerless variety, or just lose your “texting fingers.”

Ski Simulator: Might as Well Go to Vail

Ski Simulator: Might as Well Go to Vail
Skiing may be fun, but you’ve got to go to all that trouble of wrapping yourself up like a sausage and then trudge around in snow and cold air, and that’s without considering the risk of those many broken limbs.

Put Some Metal on Your Guitar Hero Les Paul
If the basic Guitar Hero Les Paul controllers are just too bland for your tastes, but you don’t want to shell out the change for a whole new controller when you have one that works just fine, you might try a faceplate.
