Growing up back in the 1970s, I remember going to the furniture store with my parents, and being hypnotized by those dual-layered mirrors that had lights built into them, creating a sort of infinite light effect.
The Raspberry Pi is a small computer on a developer board that can be used for all sorts of electronic projects and devices. The little board has been around now for one year officially, and to celebrate the first anniversary of the product launch, RS Components has announced a special limited-edition Raspberry Pi.
The first Sony PS3 was a fat, glossy black fingerprint magnet and it was glorious. When my original PS3 finally died, I ended up buying when the new slimmer PS3’s with a matte black case. If you’ve been itching for a more colorful PS3 that is even thinner – and happen to live in Japan, you will get your wish this month.
Have you been dreaming of adding a powder blue Wii to your gaming arsenal? If so, you are in luck Nintendo fans. Walmart is bringing the new limited-edition blue Wii to the US this Thursday, and you’ll be able to get one for the low price of just $99.96
Back in my day, you were either Atari or Intellivision. The lines were clearly drawn. You chose your allegiance and you were loyal to that brand. Then at some point it was Nintendo versus Sega and so on.
Wicked Lasers nearly got burned by Lucasfilm because one of their lasers looked a lot like a lightsaber. It seems that they got the upper hand in that legal battle, and now they’re tempting fate again with the Sith Series laser, the “world’s first double handed laser”, a device as jaw-dropping as it is impractical.
So you’ve got a couple of high-powered Arctic Spyder III blue lasers lying around. You’ve got to do something more impressive than aim them at a PowerPoint slideshow with ’em, right? Actually, if you’re not careful, you might burn a hole through the screen if you try that.
Sure, you can buy a toy lightsaber prop just about anywhere, but if you really want to look the part, you have to go the way that Bradley Lewis did with his gorgeous handmade lightsaber and build your own.
While many of the unusual electronic watches coming out of Asia feature complex displays that border on insane (you hear us Tokyoflash?), this LED watch is about as simple as we can imagine.
The ABYSS watch has no hands.
While cutting holes in the side and installing interior lighting in the original Xbox 360 has become pretty much the casemodding norm these days, it took a little while for the first original 360 to get modded in this way.
Over the years I have reviewed a couple of the lasers from Wicked Lasers and there aren’t things that you would call laser pointers, unless you like the ability to burn those who talk during your presentation.
For those of us who grew up during the video game era, I think we all know that hedgehogs are blue, and thrive on a steady diet of shiny golden rings. Now you can show off your astute knowledge of the animal kingdom with one of these t-shirts.
Sure, sure, the Na’vi people are kind, nature-loving folk. But they also have quite a dark side if you know what buttons to push. Clearly, this cute Avatar-inspired Na’vi cake was created before the RDA came along and knocked down Hometree.
This chubby little Na’vi was created for the That Takes The Cake cake competition (aka 2010: A Cake Odyssey) in Austin, TX last week.
We here at technabob are big fans of the guys over at Retro Thing. They’re always digging up the coolest blasts-from-the-past. Now, they’ve really outdone themselves, offering up a totally unique new product perfect for retro game fans.
Created with the help of Legacy Engineering (the guys responsible for the Atari Flashback 2 console), Retro Thing’s new Clear Classic USB Joystick ($29.95
One designer from Copenhagen decided that he’d want his own Avatar after watching James Cameron’s epic film.
Peter Ammentorp Lund is a creative art director and just used his digital photo manipulation skills to create this effect.
While most everyone I know has been heading off to get a flu shot, I’d personally rather get injected with a dose of Bioshock’s EVE serum instead of a supposedly dead H1N1 virus grown in chicken eggs.
This Bioshock 2 EVE syringe is an exact replica of the nasty looking hypodermic implement found throughout the game.
