Owen Good over at the big K has a great idea: if you’re looking for a gift for your gamer-friends but you find that actual video games are too pricey, get them these wonderful yet cheap shirts instead.
I’m sure some of you have seen the numerous and occasionally cryptic do’s and don’ts for the DSi. Well Blockhead’s Guitar Hero controller for the Wii also has its own demands. I was just minding my own business, laughing at Engrish pics, when I came upon Blockhead’s manual for their Max V wireless guitar.
Looks like Mario has given up his bid for the White House, and officially conceded the race to Super Obama.
Like many among him, Mario is looking for change in the Mushroom Kingdom. No longer will he be led blindly into battle to “bring democracy” to the Koopas, nor will he stand for citizens resorting to eating mysterious mushrooms in lieu of a decent healthcare system.
Just because you’re an insane video game addict, does it mean your pets need to be subjected to your obsession? If this Katamari Damacy dog costume is any indication, the answer to that question must be “yes”.
From the looks of the pup in the picture, he’s clearly not amused with the whole thing.
Just because your primary weapon is a lightsaber, young Jedi, doesn’t mean that you have to be an energy hog when you’re fighting back throngs of Stoormtroopers.
This amusing t-shirt from Ruby Red Design envisions an EnergyStar compliant galaxy far, far away.
Here’s a desktop toy that’s sure to draw stares from your office-mates. What could say “I fly my geek flag, and I’m proud of it” more than a glowing radioactive, goggle-sporting USB sheep for your cubicle?
Not much, I say.
I was surfing around the recesses of the Interweb today, digging under rocks to bring you fun new stuff from around the globe, when I stumbled upon something that just jumped out and beat me over the head.
If you wish your fridge could make you LOL, I’ve got great news: u can haz LOLmagnets! Imagine how witty your icebox could become with all the photos captioned up like those cute little kitties.
Now I love a good LOLcat as much as the next guy, but I’m afraid that this may be going too far.
I think I have a new favorite video game artist. I’ve already got a set of Scott Campbell’s hilarious Pac-Man illustrations in my house, and now I’m totally in love with his new “Great Showdowns (of the 8-Bit era)” series that he did for the 2008 iam8-bit video game art show at the World of Wonder gallery in Hollywood, Ca.
Scott’s mini paintings (3″ x 5″ each) offer a whimsical take on the confrontations between classic video game characters and their various nemeses.
I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not a very good golfer. If you take par, then multiply it by a factor of 1.5x, that’s about what I usually hit. So I guess I was pretty pleased to see that this little robotic golfer doesn’t play any better than I do.
CrabFu’s Putter Bot is a remote-controlled robot that’s designed to do just one thing – putt the ball.
Nope, it can’t hit a 200 yard tee shot, nor can it get out of a sand trap, but it should be able to gently tap the ball into the hole from a few club-lengths away.
This new alarm clock makes you tone up when you wake up. By embedding a motion sensor into a dumbbell, this clever clock ensures you’ll work out every morning.

I always wondered what Pac-Man and his entourage did when they weren’t busy chasing each other around that maze. Thanks to the wacky and warped mind of illustrator Scott Campbell, we finally get a glimpse of Pac ‘N Pals outside the confines of their familiar corridors.
Scott’s whimsical Pac-Man illustrations show the iconic gaming characters in a number of everyday (depending on what your days are like) situations, from recreating the Napoleon Dynamite bike jump scene to trying out some fabulous new hair-dos.
If you’ve been searching for fun affordable art that features those convenient shortcut keys, this might be your lucky day. Clever Brooklyn graphic designer Christopher David Ryan has created the Command print series for his online shop, My Little Underground.
John over at Boing Boing Gadgets dug up this awesome video from the classic Sci-Fi comedy show Mystery Science Theater 3000. Tom Servo and Crow T. Robot debate the pros and cons of PCs and Macs in a debate that still seems relevant nearly 17 years after this hilarious clip made its debut.
I can’t decide which is funnier, Crow and Tom Servo arguing over the finer points of the DOS command line, or the memories of what seemed like an endless wait for the overhyped System 7 operating system.
I’m pretty sure this little gadget would come in handy around my office. Just point it at a crowd, and it’ll help you weed out the geniuses, idiots, crazy people, liars, dorks and people who just plain suck.
The Multi-Tector is the latest creation from the novelty house of Stupidiotic.
This geek lifecycle flow chart recently appeared in The New York Times, and I’m more than a little frightened by how much of it rings true.
Especially the part about blogging about diagrams like this one.
