Real Life Pokémon: Don’t Wanna Catch Any of ‘Em

Real Life Pokémon: Don’t Wanna Catch Any of ‘Em
Characters from video games, comics and cartoons rarely look good in live action or when portrayed realistically, from Wolverine in his classic blue and yellow uniform to Mario in any of his numerous costumes. Animé characters are typically the most outlandish and should almost always remain animated.

Steampunk Mouse: More Like Evil Mad Scientist Mouse

Steampunk Mouse: More Like Evil Mad Scientist Mouse
The brain inside Peter Balch’s steampunk mouse may be fake – at least that’s what Balch says – but it’s as creepy as the steampunk mouse with sheep skull on it. Also, I can’t figure out how you’re supposed to hold this thing.

Geminoid-DK: Robot in Disguise

Geminoid-DK: Robot in Disguise
We already featured one of Hiroshi Ishiguro’s Geminoid-F androids a while back. You’ll see how the people working on the robot are getting closer and closer to making something that’s indistinguishable from a real human.

AFFETTO Robot Head Will Creep You Out

AFFETTO Robot Head Will Creep You Out
I know that this isn’t really supposed to have anything to do with Halloween or scaring people, but what the heck guys, this robot baby head is really disturbing, especially when the guy starts moving the head around and the baby comes alive.

TalkTorque 2 Robot Guides People at Museums and Creeps Them Out

TalkTorque 2 Robot Guides People at Museums and Creeps Them Out
I admit that robots creep me out. It goes back to watching Saturn 3 as a kid. Even cute Johnny 5 couldn’t cure me of the creepies. This odd robot form Japan called Talk-Torque 2 [JP] falls somewhere in between Johnny 5 and Hector on the creepy scale for me.

Bioshock Splicer Welder Mask Arrives Too Late for Halloween

Bioshock Splicer Welder Mask Arrives Too Late for Halloween
If you were planning on scaring the crap out of your friends this Halloween by dressing up as one of the many creepy characters from the Bioshock universe, you’ll have to nix the welder mask-wielding Splicer from your list – at least this year.

Quadrotor Drone Would be a Great Circus Performer. or Relentless Hunter.

Quadrotor Drone Would be a Great Circus Performer. or Relentless Hunter.
The University of Pennsylvania’s autonomous quadrotor helicopter reminds me of a dog. It’s just waiting to be unleashed, to do tricks, to zip from one place to another. It can do backflips, even triple backflips, pass through narrow spaces without breaking a sweat, and can even be upgraded with Velcro.

Fossils of the Mechazoic Era: the What Now?
Poor dead bird. Wait what the — It’s a dead robo-bird!

Bioshock 2 Cosplay: Big Sister is a Skinny Dude

Bioshock 2 Cosplay: Big Sister is a Skinny Dude
Nathan Sharratt’s Big Sister costume looks as menacing as its video game counterpart: When Bioshock was released, Nathan Sharatt made a Big Daddy costume. Now that the game’s sequel is out, it makes sense that he’d make a Big Sister costume too.

Cream Fox: the Creepiest Game You’Ll Play Today

Cream Fox: the Creepiest Game You’Ll Play Today
While the one-line description of Pixeljam’s Cream Wolf is “You drive an ice cream truck,” there’s something far more insidious going on in this quirky retro-style Flash game. Basically, the objective of the game is to drive around your neighborhood in an ice cream truck, and take their orders for delicious ice cream cones.

Sruli Recht Sleep Masks: Dream in Peace and Give Everyone Else Nightmares

Sruli Recht Sleep Masks: Dream in Peace and Give Everyone Else Nightmares
Sruli Recht’s upcoming collection of sleep masks have built-in air purifiers. But that’s not the strangest thing about them. Not by a long shot.

Which the Game: More Like What… Where? Who… Holy Shi-

Which the Game: More Like What… Where? Who… Holy Shi-
Saw this on TV yesterday. At around 4 in the morning. Not good. Which is a short first-person PC game which gives players a simple goal: find a way out of the goddamn horror house. Game creator Mike Inel used simple graphics to great effect.

Darth Saddam: Artist Reveals Parallelisms Between Infamous Villains
