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.
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.
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.
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.
If you didn’t already have enough of James Cameron’s Avatar, you can get more of it thanks to this awesome LEGO Avatar Battle Helicopter. Before you start drooling, there’s more to it than meets the eye, so read on!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
