Deadmau5 Halloween Mask Powered by a Netduino: Rocking to the Beats

Deadmau5 Halloween Mask Powered by a Netduino: Rocking to the Beats
Who is Deadmau5? He’s a DJ based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and he’s mostly known for wearing these crazy masks during his live sets, that kind of look like a dead mouse. He was recently featured in an episode of CSI called Pool Shark and let me tell you that I must have watched the opening scene about 10 times because the music was so good (if you’re wondering, it was the track Some Chords that was playing).

Robotot Costume is Part Kid, Part Robot Cop and All Awesome

Robotot Costume is Part Kid, Part Robot Cop and All Awesome
One of the favorite flicks of my youth was Robocop. Sure, the second movie kind of sucked, but I’d buy the original for a dollar. The premise was out there for the time when it came out but it’s a geek classic right up there with TRON in my book.

LED Jack-O-Lantern: the Geeky Way to Scare People Away

LED Jack-O-Lantern: the Geeky Way to Scare People Away
Halloween is almost upon us, and the tech geeks aren’t above trying to make Jack-o-lanterns scarier – or at least geekier. How about this? Installing a 70-LED matrix into a Jack-o-lantern to scare people away with blinking lights.

Great Geeky Halloween Costumes

Great Geeky Halloween Costumes
Well, Halloween is coming up this weekend, and if you are a geek and you don’t have a Halloween costume yet, we have a few sweet ones to show you. Some of these things are so awesome it’s crazy.

Antimov: This Robot Will Self Destruct in 5 Seconds.

Antimov: This Robot Will Self Destruct in 5 Seconds.
Ok, this is my kind of contest. The whole point of Sparkfun Electronics’ Anitmov competition is to create robots which are supposed to complete a trivial task in a highly inefficient way, in the course, destroying themselves.

LEGO Letterpress Proves There Are Few Things LEGO Can’T Do

LEGO Letterpress Proves There Are Few Things LEGO Can’T Do
I like to find strange things that are made from LEGO and when those strange things actually serve a purpose its even cooler. I ran across this LEGO letterpress like those they used for printing lots of letters and flyers back in the old days.

Mechanicards Are Part Greeting Part Kinetic Sculpture

Mechanicards Are Part Greeting Part Kinetic Sculpture
I am not a card person. I rarely read them if you send them to me and if you don’t send them to me I won’t think twice about it. There are some people who are card people though and if you are the sort of card person that likes to send them, you need to get some of these awesome Mechanicards to give out.

Can Grandma’S Scooter Can Hit 69mph?

Can Grandma’S Scooter Can Hit 69mph?
I am sure that we have all been out and about at one time or another and ran across someone that had to ride one of those scooters to get around for some reason. Those things can be painfully slow when you are walking behind one trying to shop.

Steampunk Iron Man Costume is Better Than the Second Movie

Steampunk Iron Man Costume is Better Than the Second Movie
I really liked the first Iron Man flick. My son was too young to go and see the original in the theater, but he wanted to go see the second flick back at the beginning of the summer.

Chumby-Headed Robot: Going Everywhere Slowly

Chumby-Headed Robot: Going Everywhere Slowly
Eric Gregori‘s new clever robot has a Chumby head and can walk around, albeit slowly. What’s amazing is that there isn’t much computing power in a Chumby, yet Eric still managed to make it walk. This cute little robot uses a 3-axis Freescale accelerometer to balance.

Geek Builds LEGO Mindstorms T-Shirt Folding Robot

Geek Builds LEGO Mindstorms T-Shirt Folding Robot
The most complex thing I ever built out of a set of LEGO bricks was a police station, and I did that following the directions. Real hard-core LEGO fans don’t need no stinkin’ instructions, and can turn their Mindstorms LEGO sets into robots that do things I won’t do for myself, like fold a t-shirt.

Creative Mom + Milk Jugs = Stormtrooper Mask of Awesome

Creative Mom + Milk Jugs = Stormtrooper Mask of Awesome
I don’t’ spend much time looking at trash around my house thinking about ways I can reuse the stuff. I mostly just worry about the bag of trash leaking a line of milk or Dr. Pepper on the floor as I sprint to the door to take the bag to the can outside.

Case-Mate Offers Custom Cases for Your iPhone, Touch, and Blackberry

Case-Mate Offers Custom Cases for Your iPhone, Touch, and Blackberry
I am not a big fan of putting cases on my iPhone. I am generally really careful with the thing and hadn’t dropped my phone in years until a few months back I dropped my 3GS and cracked the screen.

Duct Tape, Cardboard and Sharpie at-at: Awesome.

Duct Tape, Cardboard and Sharpie at-at: Awesome.
While I think it’s really cool that someone made a duct tape/sharpie AT-AT, I find it a bit ridiculous that it’s currently being sold on eBay with a starting bid of $400. Still, it’s an AT-AT made out of duct tape, so I can’t complain too much. This model is 4 feet tall and 5 feet long.

Man Loans Out Dslr and Gets It Back With Serious Wood

Man Loans Out Dslr and Gets It Back With Serious Wood
I learned a long time ago you never loan stuff to a friend if it is electronic. I have had netbooks come back packed with malware from friends downloading stuff they shouldn’t be and I have had stuff just plain not come back.

Geeky LED Jack-O-Lantern DIY Project

Geeky LED Jack-O-Lantern DIY Project
My daughter was born on Halloween so it’s a pretty big deal around out house, with all sorts of decorations and parties to be had. It’s time to start decorating for Halloween already and if you want something a bit geekier for your porch than a carved pumpkin, this is the DIY project for you.
