The latest contraption to separate the cookies and cream from Oreo cookies is a robot named HERB, Carnegie Mellon’s butler ‘bot. He was built for performing household tasks, and what task could be more important than separating Oreo cookies?
We’ve previously featured some Doctor Who inspired cookie cutters, but you had to make them yourself using dangerously sharp strips of metal. Now, through the wonders of 3D printing technology, you can actually buy some plastic one, shaped like iconic characters and items from the long-running science fiction series.
Scotty. One to beam up. And hurry up, I’m hungry. I don’t want to eat my communicator and end up stranded on this alien planet. Yep, this is a gingerbread version of a standard-issue Starfleet communicator from Star Trek.
Portal is one of the best puzzle-solving games of all time, IMHO. That said, I’ve played through every level of both Portal and Portal 2, and really am jonesing for some new Portal goodness. While it may be a while before Portal 3 gets made, I guess I’ll have to fill that empty place in my heart with some empty carbs.
If you’ve ever looked for Doctor Who cookie cutters then you know they are hard to find. I’m not sure if any official cookie cutters even exist. So what do you do when you want to make some cookies to stuff in your TARDIS cookie jar?
Cookies are one of life’s great treats. Star Wars cookies are even better. Given the way he ate, maybe Jabba the Hutt would have been satisfied with some cookies featuring Han frozen in carbonite instead of the real deal hanging on his wall.
C-3PO is like the Rodney Dangerfield of droids. He doesn’t get much respect, but he does get some of the funniest lines. R2-D2 has merchandise of every conceivable variety, but not Goldenrod. That’s because he is prissy, complains incessantly and is easily disassembled so that Wookiees can carry him around.
Ready for the creepiest three minute cooking show ever? No, I’m not talking about Rachael Ray and Alton Brown getting freaky with cake mix and Jell-O. I’m talking about BakeBot. It’s Willow Garage’s PR2 robot in the kitchen.
While I’d never spend the time making a s’more shaped like a keyboard, it’s a fun thing to see when most of us spend so much time in front of our computers.
The maker must have been pretty dedicated to his task when he created this intricate keyboard s’more.
Yeah, we too thought Darth Vader was building the Death Star as a weapon of mass intergalactic destruction. Turns out the Death Star was actually built to do something much more important – to protect the Empire’s delicious cookies.
The guys over at geeksugar recently did a feature on the most awesome geeky cookies they could find. My personal favorite of the bunch – these video game controller cookies from Ms. Humble of Not So Humble Pie.
Get some ghosts in your kitchen with these awesome Pac-Man cookie cutters.
Created for what seems like the never-ending 30th anniversary of everyone’s favorite dot-gobbling arcade game (except for Ms. Pac-Man), these cookie cutters come in a set of four, including Pinky, Inky, Clyde, and Pac-Man himself.
As we progress toward Christmas (hey, I walked into the grocery store yesterday and they were wearing Santa hats, so don’t complain to me about it being too early to talk about this stuff) you’ll no doubt start to encounter festive treats such as gingerbread men.
Stealing a page right out of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, this strange looking headgear turns a single cookie into one of seven different flavors.
