Coolest Roller Coaster Ever Uses Ferrari Cars

Coolest Roller Coaster Ever Uses Ferrari Cars
I was at the LA Auto Show once for the press preview and spent many an hour walking around the show hall drooling over the cars on display. I spent lots of time at the Ferrari display because that is as close as I will get to owning one.

Brutal Legend Birthday Cake Would Make Jack Black Proud

Brutal Legend Birthday Cake Would Make Jack Black Proud
This isn’t the first Brutal Legend cake we’ve featured, but it certainly puts the first one to shame. Pastry artist Barbarann Garrard (a.k.a. Cake Rhapsody) made this Brutal Legend cake for her son’s 10th birthday – it must have been some birthday party.

Tired of Telling People Why You’Re Wearing a Cast? Get a Casttoo!

Tired of Telling People Why You’Re Wearing a Cast? Get a Casttoo!
One time I was at one of my cousin’s birthday parties at the park in our town. We were specifically told not to go on what had to be the world’s highest monkey bars. The geodesic dome structure was a good 10 feet off the ground not counting the hole worn underneath by the years of kids plummeting to their demise.

Xbox Rrodman Robot: What Xbox 360s Do When They Die

Xbox Rrodman Robot: What Xbox 360s Do When They Die
I think we’ve all had our share of Xbox 360s go the way of the notorious Red Ring of Death. The same recently happened to Technabob reader Jasper Stevens, and he decided to do something about it instead of the traditional call Microsoft tech support; wait for cardboard coffin; wait for refurbished 360; pray it doesn’t RRoD again cycle.

Lightbotz: Munnys Get Illuminated

Lightbotz: Munnys Get Illuminated
If you’ve never heard of a Munny, you’re probably not a vinyl toy freak. But if you have, you know they’re these non-descript bodies which can be used as a blank canvas for creating unique handmade toys.

Robo-Rex Combines Legos and Robots With Dinosaurs

Robo-Rex Combines Legos and Robots With Dinosaurs
This just can’t get any better: mash up robots with dinosaurs and LEGO bricks and you’ve got Robo-Rex. Could we want more? Robo-Rex is the brainchild of Alyse and Remi. It’s an awesome LEGO Technics build that they designed themselves.

The Ultimate LEGO Build: the LEGO Crawler Town

The Ultimate LEGO Build: the LEGO Crawler Town
There’s just something about awesome LEGO builds that I just love, especially when they don’t involve kits. This amazing build is by Dave DeGobbi. He calls it Crawler Town. It kind of reminds me of Howl’s Moving Castle, one of the more recent Studio Ghibli movies.

Avps3: Alien Chestburster Busts Through PS3 [Casemod]

Avps3: Alien Chestburster Busts Through PS3 [Casemod]
I loves me some ooey-gooey Alien Chestbursters, and I certainly enjoy the occasional PS3 game. This over-the-top casemod combines both. Modder GivinTats originally did another Alien casemod a while back, and then had someone reach out to him to make a custom mod featuring a gory Chestburster pushing its way out of the side of a poor old 1st gen PlayStation 3.

Ratchet & Clank Vinyl Figures: Toys of Adorableness

Ratchet & Clank Vinyl Figures: Toys of Adorableness
Months ago, I posted about a set of Ratchet & Clank vinyl figures created by two of Insomniac Games’ employees. Unfortunately, they were made exclusively for the good folks at Insomniac. Only a few sets managed to get into public hands, and those were through auctions.

Zipbuds Earphone Zipper Cord Never Tangles

Zipbuds Earphone Zipper Cord Never Tangles
I cannot wait for the wireless future. I don’t even have a lot of wired gadgets, but everyday I’m confronted with messy bundles of wires and cables, and when I’m out I regularly wrestle with my earphone cords.

Jvc in-Ear Monitors have Wooden Housing, Golden Price

Jvc in-Ear Monitors have Wooden Housing, Golden Price
Instead of giving your loved one a pair of expensive earrings, save up for JVC’s HA-FX700 in-ear monitors. The headphones are encased in a birch housing and according to CrunchGear‘s Serkan Toto, will be priced at $330 (USD) when they’re released in February 2010 (the press release says May though), so you’re getting an expensive accessory and a pair of earphones in one.

Magnetic Tape Clock: Timeless and Attractive

Magnetic Tape Clock: Timeless and Attractive
Etsy seller/green craftster pixelthis uses recycled parts to make timepieces. While he mostly uses discarded hard disk drives, this gem of a clock features a 7″ magnetic tape reel, giving it a simple yet classy look.

Level Down: Minimalist Video Game Character Art

Level Down: Minimalist Video Game Character Art
Compared to 15 pixel videos of games, these minimalist prints of video game characters are much more recognizable. Of course it helps that the characters shown are very popular. Or did they become so popular partly because they have such recognizable features?

Moonwalk Lamp: Because Astronauts have Bright Minds

Moonwalk Lamp: Because Astronauts have Bright Minds
I can only think of a handful of other jobs that are as awesome as being an astronaut. Being a technabob blogger is one of them. So is being an ice cream taste tester. What else…no, that’s it.

Taskwatch Magnetic White Board With Clock: Write on Time

Taskwatch Magnetic White Board With Clock: Write on Time
When I first saw this gadget’s name I instantly wished that it referred to an industrious monster instead. Wouldn’t you rather hire a hardworking Yeti than buy a magnetic board with a clock on it? But actually the TaskWatch isn’t so bad.
