Dream With the Petals in Psn’S Flower in February

Dream With the Petals in Psn’S Flower in February
Do flowers dream of petals dancing on the wind? According to ThatGameCompany (makers of flOw,  predecessor), they just might, especially if they’re stuck on the dull, lifeless windowsill of an apartment. And here you thought it was just guilt-inducing to bring a pet into your apartment; now the flora is fighting back, too. flower (lower case “f” preferred) is game-as-art-project (or perhaps vice versa) in which players guide petals through abstract landscapes.

Together 4 Dead: a Zombified Proposal

Together 4 Dead: a Zombified Proposal
There’s nothing more romantic than a midnight escape across the rooftops, just you, your lover, and as much ammo as you can carry, as the ravenous undead hordes slobber below you, rotting arms waving in a symphony of rage and hunger.

Beds on Facebook: Furniture Revolution

Beds on Facebook: Furniture Revolution
It’s pretty normal these days to keep a blog or Twitter account. Some people even set up social networking accounts for their infant children, or even their pets. One intrepid person has pushed the envelope, however, into a realm heretofore unimagined: she’s got a bed with its own not-inconsiderable fanbase on Facebook. The custom hamburger (or, cheeseburger, as it maybe should be) bed resides at Kayla Kromer’s house in Texas, and looks pretty comfy, but should it have a Facebook page of its own?

Philips Cinema 21:9 Ultra Widescreen Perfect for Movie Snobs

Philips Cinema 21:9 Ultra Widescreen Perfect for Movie Snobs
So now that you’ve got your brand new super-deluxe widescreen flat screen television, isn’t it time for an upgrade? If you’re like me, you know the minute you buy anything that runs on electricity, you’re cursed with its immediate obsolescence.

Wi-Far Out: Wi-Fire USB Range Extender

Wi-Far Out: Wi-Fire USB Range Extender
Wireless connectivity is the bees’ knees. In most cases however, you have to give up some of your connection speed for the convenience and neatness of being wireless. Sometimes it’s the router’s fault, but I think you’ll agree with me that the built-in receiver/transmitter in most computers, especially the ones in laptops, could be better.

Turn Your Wii Remote Into a Useful Tool

Turn Your Wii Remote Into a Useful Tool
You could keep an actual toolbox around, with things like screwdrivers and hammers… or you could con your gadgets into performing double duty as home improvement devices. And sure, you may not want to pound nails with your iPhone, but I bet you have no objection to using your Wii remote as a level. Leveltool is a homebrew application that turns that oh-so-versatile motion-sensing Wii controller into a level.

Mickey Mouse Prime: Mickey Goes Transformer

Mickey Mouse Prime: Mickey Goes Transformer
If you ever thought Mickey Mouse would be infinitely cooler if only he could transform into some sort of vehicular transport (and fight the Decepticons), then your dream is about to be realized with this Transformer Mickey. I never knew something could look so innocently badass.

Ruben & Lullaby Opertoon – Strangest iPhone App (So Far)

Ruben & Lullaby Opertoon – Strangest iPhone App (So Far)
Ok, how’s this for a concept? Take two moody lovers on a park bench. Put them inside your iPhone or iPod Touch. Shake them vigorously. Watch the sparks fly. Yep, that’s the idea behind interactive artist Eric Loyer’s new iPhone app, Ruben & Lullaby.

Heartbeat LED Watch Performs Cpr on Itself

Heartbeat LED Watch Performs Cpr on Itself
This funky modern watch out of Japan tells time not with hands or numbers, but with a tiny little electrocardiogram machine that sits on your wrist. OK, the EIN Cyber Heartbeat LED watch doesn’t actually tell you if your heart is still beating, but its LED graphical display is styled to look like a mini heart monitor.

Left 4 Crochet: Zombie Amigurumi

Left 4 Crochet: Zombie Amigurumi
Let’s be frank here: Left 4 Dead’s zombies are kind of gross. There’s the Smoker, who has a truly gargantuan tongue that shoots out, often from some distance, only to wrap you in deadly zombie saliva, and there’s the Boomer, whose projectile vomit summons a flood of other undead, and of course, creepy Witches, massive Tanks, and annoying Hunters.

Toothbrush Sanitizer: the Toothbrush of Toothbrushes

Toothbrush Sanitizer: the Toothbrush of Toothbrushes
“Your toothbrush cleans your teeth. What cleans your toothbrush?” Nice tagline. If your answer to that question is “umm..” then you might want to take a look at the VioLight Zapi toothbrush sanitizer. I think we all have to take a look at the VioLight Zapi toothbrush sanitizer, because really, what cleans your toothbrush?

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

Have It Both Ways: Atari 360
So maybe you like to play the latest and greatest (arcade) games but you don’t necessarily like the latest and greatest controllers. The answer, clearly, is to build a hybrid monster of controllers to suit your specifications.

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.
