Ribbon Hero: a Game About Using Ms Office? Go Clippy, Go!

Ribbon Hero: a Game About Using Ms Office? Go Clippy, Go!
Actually no, it probably won’t be. And if Ribbon Hero does come out Microsoft will most likely distribute the game for free. istartedsomething‘s Long Zheng dug up a trademark application filed by Microsoft last November, which describes Ribbon Hero as a “computer software for training users to use business application software; and computer game software for use in computer user training.”

Penny-Dispensing Machine: an Interactive Representation of the Daily Grind

Penny-Dispensing Machine: an Interactive Representation of the Daily Grind
…or the daily crank, as the machine puts it. Says maker Blake Fall-Conroy, “Turning the crank will yield one penny every 5.04 seconds, for $7.15 an hour (NY state minimum wage).” Obviously the machine stops doling out money as soon as you stop turning the crank.

Chocolate Sweet Magnet: Robot Snack or Choking Hazard?

Chocolate Sweet Magnet: Robot Snack or Choking Hazard?
The cleverly designed Chocolate Sweet Magnet lets you break the whole bar into smaller pieces, so you can share it as you would a real chocolate bar. Just let the kids know that it’s made of wax and metal and not cocoa and milk.

Teachers Play Pokemon Too

Teachers Play Pokemon Too
If there’s anyone out there who still thinks that video games are for kids, here’s something to look at: a student named Matthew couldn’t answer one of the items in his math quiz, so he drew a Pokemon on his test paper instead.

Autocomplete Me Searches for Humor in Google

Autocomplete Me Searches for Humor in Google
Google’s auto-complete feature guesses what you’re looking for based on the most popular searches, giving you an idea of what other people are searching for as well as what’s on the Internet. I guess it was only a matter of time before someone found himself or herself staring at the suggestions and said, damn, I can’t believe these suggestions; I should make a blog about them.

The Many Faces of a Space Invader

The Many Faces of a Space Invader
Classic 8-bit Space Invaders as re-imagined by designer Logan Walters. Brilliant. Nuff said.

USB Sofas: the Best Flash Drive Ever Made

USB Sofas: the Best Flash Drive Ever Made
In this case, the memory is embedded inside the sofa, but isn’t that the case with almost all of the other wacky flash drives on the market? I don’t know about you but I’d rather have my flash drive inside a sofa instead of a plastic UFO or Statue of Liberty or burger or credit card or T-Rex or bento box or kunai.

Three-iPhone Ocarina: Wtf?

Three-iPhone Ocarina: Wtf?
This weird iPhone musical instrument was spotted at a meet-up of MAKE Japan. Of course. There are three iPhones in that plastic (acetate?)... thing, running what seems to be an Ocarina-like app. I'm guessing the contraption sends the air blown through the mouthpiece to all three phones at once...

Snaefell Hybrid Car-Motorcycle: Why? Why Not?

Snaefell Hybrid Car-Motorcycle: Why? Why Not?
What’s red, shiny, goes fast, and looks like a vehicular accident? The Pontiac Aztek, that’s what. I’d rather have the Snaefell, François Knorreck’s lovingly handcrafted car-motorcycle hybrid. It’s easier to think of it as a motorcycle with a car-like sidecar, because I don’t think that you can drive – or steer – with the car half.

Google Search Stories: What Did You Search for Today?

Google Search Stories: What Did You Search for Today?
Robert Wong and his co-workers at Google’s Creative Lab created a bunch of short and funny clips showing how their search engine helps people not just to find websites but to improve their lives: “In other words, the best search results don’t show up on a webpage — they show up in somebody’s life.”

Car Launching: Exactly What It Sounds Like

Car Launching: Exactly What It Sounds Like
Think Gay Wilkinson’s anvil launching antics were crazy? 3 months ago, Bob Moravitz and his family and friends went beyond launching a small piece of metal – they launched cars. And a pickup. and a camper with a boat in tow.

Question Mark Ring: for Romantic Cyborgs. or Geeks.

Question Mark Ring: for Romantic Cyborgs. or Geeks.
If your partner is geeky enough, you might get away with using capitolagirl’s Silicon Gallies question mark ring to pop the question.

Mic & Mac Prove That Love Knows No Operating System

Mic & Mac Prove That Love Knows No Operating System
Staunch loyalists of either Apple or Windows will not approve of the romance between Mic & Mac, two machines who fall in love with each other despite their differences. The Pixar-like video, created by a certain gverstraeten, is quite old but it’s still dawwwwwww-inducing.

Woman Flaunts Her Flute Skills on Rock Band

Woman Flaunts Her Flute Skills on Rock Band
Anyone who’s played Rock Band knows that the singing part of the game is quite forgiving, in the sense that you don’t have to know the right words to the song. In fact you can just moan and groan throughout a song, as long as you moan and groan on key.

Bacon Lampshade: Sizzling Hot

Bacon Lampshade: Sizzling Hot
Okay folks bacon is awesome and all, but this is getting out of hand: Flickr user krismkelley made a bacon lampshade. A lampshade made of bacon. What have you been smoking krismkelley? Bacon? Pretty soon people will be building whole houses out of bacon.
