How come it is that when I go to a party, the ice sculpture centerpiece looks like a swan or maybe a unicorn? Somehow I never manage get myself invited to the really cool parties, like the one where they had a giant ice carving of Optimus Prime?
Now, it’s been more than 20 years since Aliens hit the big screen, but that doesn’t make this movie-accurate prop Pulse Rifle any less awesome.
The guys over at ThinkGeek got their hands on these limited edition replica guns which are completely faithful to the weapons wielded in James Cameron’s classic sci-fi actioner.
After releasing the gorgeous Etch A Sketch iPad case, Headcase has done the inevitable and released an iPhone version. Actually they made two versions, one that fits the 3G & 3GS and one for the iPhone 4.

A group of researchers at the University of Michigan has figured out how to use lasers that can survive the stress of helicopter flight to confuse missiles into not hitting their intended target.
I love these new adidas shoes inspired by the slimy slug-like body of Jabba the Hutt.

See Dave. See Dave smile. See Dave ride his toilet cart. See Dave become the envy of geeks everywhere. Dave took a stripped down go-kart and turned it into something special – something that the Shriners with their fancy little hats and their little go-karts would be jealous of at the next parade.
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.
