… you don’t want to be on the opposing team. Since Darth Vader specializes in aggressive use of the Force, and isn’t afraid to use it for that purpose, he can just do about anything he pleases with a flimsy soccer ball.
Not only is this soccer table made completely out of LEGOs, it can almost play by itself! It’s perfect for right now, since a lot of people are going into complete soccer withdrawal while awaiting the next two series of matches that are coming up.
The main competitor to FIFA, Konami’s Pro Evolution Soccer franchise (aka Winning Eleven), finally gets ported for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. The game has two control schemes: the first is a “true flow” control system that uses the accelerometer and touch controls, while the second scheme offers a virtual d-pad and buttons, which will suit more advanced players.
The world is presently going bonkers over the World Cup, which happens every four years. The US did really well in a recent match, which was promptly reenacted with LEGOs to commemorate the momentous occasion.
I don’t know what’s more amazing, this little stop-motion reenactment or the fact that the USA is actually doing pretty well in the World Cup this year.
And by football I mean soccer. EA Sports FIFA Superstars – made in collaboration with Facebook vet Playfish – is a light version of SEGA’s Football Manager, made more fun of course by the prospect of matching wits with your Facebook friends, and even other players on Facebook.
This is how the moneyed elite unwind after a hard day of manipulating their underlings, ordering pawns around, pulling strings here and there – by manipulating foosmen. Exquisitely and finely crafted foosmen.
VIP Kicker’s Premium Edition foosball table is handcrafted, adorned with over 18,000 Swarovski crystals.
Remember that possible football controller? The kind-of-silly one? Yeah, well, there’s a new rumor all about the possible ball add-on, but this time we’re throwing Electronic Arts into the mix. Word is that they may have an all new fitness trainer in the works… but instead of aerobics and all, this one?
This has got to be the most ridiculous looking iPod dock I’ve seen in a while. In preparation for the 2010 World Cup, the guys over at Speakal have announced their new miSoccer.
The miSoccer ($119 USD) works just like any other iPod speaker dock, except it looks like a soccer ball (or for the majority of the globe – a football).
I’m starting to think Nintendo (maybe all of the big three, actually) employs a division whose sole job is to produce ridiculous patent applications designed to create waves of silly throughout the wide plains of the Internet.
It’s been a good few years for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Not many teams have racked up two Super Bowl victories in such a short time. So what can we do to celebrate the team? Ogle a Steelers casemod, of course.
There’s been a lot of fuss over the years about the educational content of games, and more recently, as the definition of “gamer” expands and systems like the Nintendo DS are showing up in schools all over the world.
Sure, these little robots might not be able to drop-kick or head a soccer ball – but that doesn’t mean they’re not cool. This mini robot soccer (or football depending on your homeland) game looks like lots of fun for you and your friends when you need a break from slaving away in your cubicles.
If you’re gonna have a robot, why not have one that can play sports? This low-cost robot is designed specifically for playing robotic football tournaments.
The RFL (Robotic Football League) Robot was created for playing football in tournaments with other robot enhusiasts.
It was bound to happen sooner or later. Every cool looking electronic device, from the Apple iPhone to the Sony PSP eventually gets its case design copied, usually with some sort of unrelated junk stuffed under the hood of the doppelgänger.
One of life’s great guilty pleasures has to be the classic table game of foosball. But how can you incorporate this pub favorite into your civilized modern lifestyle?
The artisans over at Britain’s Trifle Design have the answer with this contemporary Offside Foosball Coffee Table.
Here’s an MP3 player that doesn’t look like any other I’ve seen. Designed originally for the World Cup tournament, the Shiro AS MP3 Player looks a whole lot like a miniature soccer ball.
Sure, the Shiro won’t win any prizes for storage capacity, maxing out at 1GB of memory, but it certainly gets my endorsement for its cool design.
