Darth Vader vs. Aliens Would Be an Awesome Flick

Darth Vader vs. Aliens Would Be an Awesome Flick
Some of the recent Star Wars movies haven’t been my favorites, and at times they’ve been downright boring to me. I tell you what wouldn’t be boring – a movie that had Vader and some stormtroopers fighting against xenomorphs.

Crash Bandicoot Uka Uka Mug: That’s One Angry Mug

Crash Bandicoot Uka Uka Mug: That’s One Angry Mug
If you ever played any of the Crash Bandicoot games, you’re familiar with the masks that float around the game. The one that offers you help and makes that great “rutabaga” sound effect is called “Aku Aku,” while the bad guy boss is called “Uka Uka.” If you dig the look of these tribal masks, and you like to sip coffee at your desk, then you should grab this official Crash Bandicoot Uka Uka mug.

WiiVision Is the Nintendo Wii Handheld of Our Dreams

WiiVision Is the Nintendo Wii Handheld of Our Dreams
The Nintendo GameCube and Wii both offered up lots of fun and classic video games. But neither console was particularly portable, so the only way you could play those games on the go would be via software emulation.

Stormtrooper Vision Test Tries to Get to the Bottom of Things

Stormtrooper Vision Test Tries to Get to the Bottom of Things
Have you ever wondered why Stormtroopers can’t hit the broad side of a barn with their blasters? Perhaps they’re not getting enough Vitamin C? Or is it that the lenses of their helmets distort their vision?

Polaris Builds a Working Replica of an Apollo Lunar Rover

Polaris Builds a Working Replica of an Apollo Lunar Rover
There have been lots of cool things going on to celebrate the 50th anniversary of NASA’s Apollo 11 moon landing, but this might just be the coolest. Off-road vehicle maker Polaris Industries created a virtually perfect replica of the original NASA Lunar Rover Vehicle (LRV), which first appeared on the moon in 1971.

Dragon Ball Frieza Plush Boss Cushion Gets in Your Way While You Type

Dragon Ball Frieza Plush Boss Cushion Gets in Your Way While You Type
Fans of Dragon Ball know that Frieza is kind of a jerk. After all, he’s ruler of Universe 7, and raised up an army to wreak all kinds of havoc on the Gods of the Universe.

The Cookie Monster Rug: Blue Skin Rug

The Cookie Monster Rug: Blue Skin Rug
I’m not sure what Cookie Monster did to deserve being skinned alive, but I’m guessing that he stole some chocolate chip cookies from these kids – and they were having none of that. Seriously, though, this Cookie Monster shag rug that turned up over on Instructables is awesome.

LEGO Ideas Portal 2 Model Brings GLaDOS, Chell, and Wheatley to Life

LEGO Ideas Portal 2 Model Brings GLaDOS, Chell, and Wheatley to Life
Portal and Portal 2 were two of the best games of the 21st century. While the first game was a blast to play, the latter really stepped up the humor and story development between its main characters, Chell, GLaDOS, and Wheatley.

These Digital Characters Have a Full Musculoskeletal System

These Digital Characters Have a Full Musculoskeletal System
In a quest to make virtual characters more realistic, engineers have been working on ways to make their skeletal structures and muscles more like those found in living beings. Recently, a technology was shown off which takes those simulated biological components to the next level.

Stress Tardigrade Can Handle Whatever You Can Dish Out

Stress Tardigrade Can Handle Whatever You Can Dish Out
Tardigrades are one of the strangest creatures known to exist. These microscopic organisms – also known lovingly as “water bears” are best known for their incredible ability to survive just about anything. Apparently, they can survive extreme temperatures, complete dehydration, and even the vacuum of space.

Meowlting Catpuccino Figure: For Cat, Coffee, and Ice Cream Lovers

Meowlting Catpuccino Figure: For Cat, Coffee, and Ice Cream Lovers
Over the years, the world of collectible figures has gotten more and more creative, playing with proportion, envisioning characters in cartoony forms, increasing their levels of detail and movement, and much more. And sometimes figures are just plain wackadoo, and I love them for that reason.

The Skittle Pixel8r: Print the Rainbow

The Skittle Pixel8r: Print the Rainbow
The dot-matrix printer may seem like a relic from the past, but just about every TV set, mobile device or laser printer still relies on creating images from a matrix of dots. They’re just smaller, and perhaps more colorful than the old Okidata Microline 320 from your youth.

Yep, They’re Working on a Space Invaders Movie

Yep, They’re Working on a Space Invaders Movie
As far as I know, the entire plot of Space Invaders is “increase speed, drop down, and reverse direction!” But making vapid and obtuse movies based on popular franchises is what Hollywood does best these days, so I guess I wasn’t too surprised when I heard there’s a Space Invaders movie in development.

NEOPixel RGB LED Tubing Brings the Color

NEOPixel RGB LED Tubing Brings the Color
Love the look of neon lighting, but don’t want to deal with the fragility of glass and high voltage transformers? This tubular, flexible lighting can be bent into any shape you want without risk of damage, and a lights up in any color too.

Chemistry Crayon Labels: Writin’ Nerdy

Chemistry Crayon Labels: Writin’ Nerdy
Crayon labels are kept pretty basic for a good reason. The colors really don’t need much of a description. Besides, kids don’t know what Periwinkle, Scarlet, or Aquamarine are. They just want to color between the lines in their book.

The Devastating Impact of Underwater Pressure: Making Shrunken Heads

The Devastating Impact of Underwater Pressure: Making Shrunken Heads
If you’ve ever wondered why it’s so important to properly pressurize and depressurize a submarine, this image should explain it for you. What you’re looking at is three identical styrofoam heads, each of which has been exposed to a different depth pressure.
