Whether you’re an iPhone addict or hooked on your CrackBerry, you have to be a real gadget nut to wear these miniature smartphone earrings.
Toronto artist Barb Feldman handcrafts these teeny tiny iPhone 3G and BlackBerry (Curve?)
There’s an adorable new item available in craftsholic’s Etsy storefront: custom felt Mii pins! These little brooches are handsewn recreations of Nintendo’s distinctive avatars. There’s just one hitch: you can’t get a custom pin. No, instead you can select from craftsholic’s Miis.
If your significant other is starting to suspect you may care more about Master Chief and Major Nelson’s Twitter, it might be time to offer tangible (and hilarious) proof to the contrary. Especially with Valentine’s Day coming up and all.
Here’s a piece of art any retro game fanatic would be proud to hang on their wall. It’s a handmade Pac-Man mixed media piece, using teeny ceramic tiles in place of pixels.

If the basic Guitar Hero Les Paul controllers are just too bland for your tastes, but you don’t want to shell out the change for a whole new controller when you have one that works just fine, you might try a faceplate.
If run-of-the-mill, every day profanity just isn’t good enough for you–maybe you’re the type who yells KRAF! when you stub a toe–then you just might be the target market for the Super Electrofluorescent Profanity Machine, which will merrily generate random four-letter words for you at the rate of one per second.

There is a glut of Sackboy stuff out in the wilds of the internet, celebrating everything LittleBigPlanet. You can get soft Sackboy dolls and spend your days watching videos of Sackboys (and girls) cavorting in custom levels, but if there’s one thing we’ve lacked, it’s Sackboy clothing.
Here’s another insanely amazing Perler-beaded creation from lostmitten: the question mark block piggy bank! Lostmitten really got the appearance of the block spot-on.

Created by Swedish designer David Ericsson, VOID Watches are the embodiment of clean modern design.
Each watch in the new V.01 collection features a bold face design with an off-center grey-on-black LCD screen. According to Ericsson, the V.01’s half-glass / half-stainless face “could represent the duality of life; like the yin and yang, the past and future, love and hate, right or wrong.”
