Jedi Training Remote Alarm Clock Should Zap Younglings Out of Bed

Jedi Training Remote Alarm Clock Should Zap Younglings Out of Bed
I really like the design of this alarm clock, based on the Jedi training remote Luke Skywalker used in the original Star Wars. It really does look like it. But instead of firing sparks of electricity at your lightsaber, this orb is designed to wake Jedi younglings from their slumber.

2,000 Tennis Balls Bounce Through Art Gallery in Spain

Katamari Christmas Tree is a Real Ball
I have to make a confession. I bookmarked this image all the way back in January 2009, thinking to myself that I should post it for Christmas that year. Of course, I completely forgot about it, and just found it again.

Zombie Bowling Balls: Heads Will Roll!

Zombie Bowling Balls: Heads Will Roll!
It’s not often that you come across creative bowling balls. Sure, there was the time we had those Star Wars balls, but they didn’t even bother to make a Death Star ball. How lame is that?

Billiard Ball Flash Drive: 8GB in the Side USB Pocket
Check out this cool USB flash drive that was designed by Alain Berteau for Tamawa. This flash drive is made out Bakelite, the same material out of which they make billiard balls.

Sphero: Get Your Hands on Some Remote-Controlled Glowing Balls
Balls are very near and dear to most men’s hearts. We use them for all sorts of fun and games. We try to take care of our varied balls and keep them from harm’s way. No one wants one of their balls to go flat for instance or explode due to mishandling.

CTA Bowliing Ball for Kinect, Wiimote, Move Strikes Out

CTA Bowliing Ball for Kinect, Wiimote, Move Strikes Out
We can always rely on the guys at CTA Digital to show up at CES with some goofy add-on for gaming consoles. This year is no different, and they’re showing a variety of silly business. My personal favorite (next to these inflatable karts for Mario Kart) is their bowling ball add-on for the various motion-controlled games out there.
