Flexpeaker: Paper-Thin Speakers Could Mean Your E-Newspaper Might One Day Read Itself to You
Wouldn’t it be cool if your could get some speakers that are even thinner than that ultra-slim flat TV you’ve got hanging on the wall? Well you might not have to wait long thanks to this new technology that produces speakers that are as thick as a sheet of paper.

Guy Builds Daft Punk Helmet for His Kid Brother, Making Every Kid on the Face of the Earth Jealous
I only wish I had a big brother like this guy. Not only does he have mad video game modding skills, but Pkmnjunky7 thought enough of his little brother to make him this amazing Daft Punk helmet that looks just like the one Thomas Bangalter has been known to wear on stage.

Apocalypse Wow is That a Fallout 3 Laser Rifle?

Apocalypse Wow is That a Fallout 3 Laser Rifle?
In Fallout 3, the AER9 Laser Rifle is a military-grade energy weapon commonly used by Brotherhood of Steel and Enclave troops. In real life, the AER9 Laser Rifle is a whole mess of wood cobbled together ingeniously by Volpin Props’ Harrison Krix, who was commissioned to build the replica by a close friend looking to attend some convention dressed as the Vault Dweller/Lone Wanderer.

Ever wonder what sort of stuff was running through the electronic brain of your Roomba robotic vacuum cleaner? These wonderful time-lapse photos should give you a pretty good idea of what your Roomba has been up to.

Space Invaders Shower Curtain: as Elusive as That Final Alien
I was surfing around over on Flickr this morning and stumbled onto this awesome Space Invaders shower curtain.

Unicycle Robot by Murata has Much Better Balance Than Me

Unicycle Robot by Murata has Much Better Balance Than Me
This jolly little robot gets around not by walking or crawling, but by rolling along on a single unicycle wheel. Murata’s Seiko-chan (Murata Girl) self-balancing unicycle robot first came onto the scene back in 2008, but has recently been upgraded so it can tool along 3 times faster than the original.

Skateboarders Recreate Tetris on Streets of Sf

Skateboarders Recreate Tetris on Streets of Sf
What happens when you get a bunch of skateboarders together, strap brightly colored neon Tetris blocks to their heads, and let them run wild on the streets of San Francisco? This does.

Wire Pod Extension Cord: Functional Art, Refreshing Design, Luxury Price
Designed by Joris Laarman, Artecnica’s Wire Pod manages to avoid the messy tangle of wires that we’ve come to expect from an extension cord while actually adding style to a space. This is one power cord that you won’t want to hide even if it’s not being used.

Pac-Man Rubik’s Cube Goes Nom Nom Nom When Solved (Not Really)

Pac-Man Rubik’s Cube Goes Nom Nom Nom When Solved (Not Really)
You know, I was just thinking the other day how I’d like a Rubik’s cube for my desk. And while I’m partial to the Mega Man Rubik’s Cube (which, I presume, goes “pew pew pew”) the classicist in me is more partial to this Pac-Man Rubik’s Cube (which, naturally, goes “nom nom nom”).

Legotron: Light Cycles Speeding Down the Block

Legotron: Light Cycles Speeding Down the Block
TRON is one of the most famous geek movies of all time, and what better way to pay homage to the film than with another geek favorite? Flickr user/blocksmith/80s baby (I suppose) 2×4 created these neat LEGO light cycles and even posted step-by-step instructions on his Flick page.

Buried Treasure: Uncharted 2’S ‘Fortune Hunter’ Edition

Buried Treasure: Uncharted 2’S ‘Fortune Hunter’ Edition
Not to go all shameless self-promotion on ya’ll, but if you happen to read Geekadelphia (another site I write for) you know that I have an unhealthy crush on Nathan Fillion – A.K.A. Malcolm Reynolds from Firefly.

3d Projection Mapping Demo has a Cameo by Pac-Man

3d Projection Mapping Demo has a Cameo by Pac-Man
I guarantee you this is the coolest video you’ll see today. All I can say is that it was pulled off at a “super-secret” festival in the Northeast of England, and that it involves a building, a projector and Pac-Man.

Blue Microphones’ Eyeball Webcam’S Eyeball Hides Behind Its Ears

Blue Microphones’ Eyeball Webcam’S Eyeball Hides Behind Its Ears
Blue Microphones’ Eyeball USB webcam aims to  provide “HD-quality” audio and video in a relatively small package. I found it a bit confusing that a product named “the Eyeball” would have a more prominent microphone, but the tiny lens was made to be retractable to make it easier for users to know whether the camera is active or not.

Craymachine Lets You Type Beats

Craymachine Lets You Type Beats
The craymachine is a bitchin’ way to kill time. If the iPhone had a keyboard this would’ve been a cool app. So what is it? It’s a flash-based synthesizer; a sound is mapped to each letter on your keyboard, ranging from the normal but essential bass drum of b to the intergalactic croak of w.
