I’ve been keeping my eye on this Portal-inspired casemod project for a while now, watching and waiting for the builder to eventually finish his creation. And just like the cake, I guess that case was a lie.
Sure, that Legend of Zelda quilt was pretty nifty, but this has got to be the best Nintendo-inspired item I’ve seen this week.
The t-shirt just shows the ubiquitous pixelated question mark block from the Super Mario games, along with the caption “I’d hit that!”.
Looking for the perfect accessory to go with your Pac-Man hoodie and Pac-Man hat? How about a pair of rockin’ Pac-Man sneakers?
These awesome hand-painted Pac-Man shoes turned up recently in a Flickr photostream from someone going by the name thekalaka.
Here’s another fun Portal-inspired craft goody — it’s a plush, knit version of the game’s Weighted Companion Cube. Now you may ask, how can something so soft and fuzzy qualify as “weighted”?
I guess we just have to allow some artistic license to the creator of this handstitched wool cube.
I suppose you could take the Creative Commons licensed pattern she provided and fill yours with rocks or concrete in place of the recommended foam filling if you want the appropriate heft required for solving puzzles in the test chamber.
Other than the Noah Wyle with long hair and a beard look-alike dude modeling this outfit, I’m not sure who’d actually wear this ridiculously over-the-top Pac-Man themed hoodie.
The lightweight black jacket has pretty much every available surface covered with a Pac-Man maze print, leaving little question that the wearer is a complete dork.
This computer has to be the biggest hunk of junk I’ve ever seen. Cobbled together from cardboard, red duct tape and embellished with a Sharpie, the UbuntuBox V1.0 certainly won’t win any awards for build quality.
According to the builder, the guts of the old Pentium 3 tower are being used to power this Ubuntu Linux computer.
The guys over at Evil Mad Scientist Labs created these wacky stickers that you can slap on the boxes from your gadgets, video games and software.
The labels say “Now Slower and with More Bugs”, making them perfect on a copy of Windows Vista or maybe even Mac OS X Leopard.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve bought a piece of furniture from Ikea, spent countless hours assembling it, only to have some slightly out-of-the ordinary use cause it to fail catastrophically. That’s exactly what happened to this artist when he overstuffed his drawers with his drawers and tried to move them.
Ah, the power of Windows Vista. Check out this recent screen capture of the progress dialog that appeared when an unsuspecting Vista user tried to burn 15 megabytes of files to a DVD RW drive.
So if I’m doing my math right, the disk will be completed in 2138, a little over 130 years from now.
Check out this ridiculous computer case made entirely out of cooling fans. I’m assuming the builder of this case was frustrated with their tricked-out system overheating all the time.
The case was assembled from 66 individual cooling fans, keeping the system icy cold all the time.
Sick of listening to throngs of robotic humanoids marching through the city streets gabbing away on their mobile phones? Tired of the Bluetooth Borg collective yammering into space, as if anyone cared about what they had to say?
Give your Xbox 360 system a retro-lounge makeover with these animal print faceplates. These snap-on replacements for the standard Xbox 360 front cover don’t just look like their mammalian counterparts, they’re velvety soft to the touch.
Whether you’re going for a jungle theme or fifties kitsch, they’ll definitely get looks when you have your friends over.
Check out this never before seen episode of 24, shot back in the early 1990s.
Apparently, CTU’s technology hadn’t come along quite as far as it has today.
Seriously, I don’t know what’s funnier, the AOL and Prodigy references, or the old brick cordless phone.
Do you ever find yourself sitting at your computer, toiling away in your e-mail box when those late afternoon hunger pangs hit you? This laptop out of Germany might help you get your blood sugar going.
Nope, the Chocolap isn’t a functional computer, rather, it’s a fake laptop made from cardboard, and loaded with a delicious edible chocolate keyboard in the middle.
Here’s another silly accessory for your Nintendo Wii controller. It’s a fishing rod that snaps on to your Wii-mote so you can feel more immersed when you’re catching digital fish in those weird fishing simulation games.
The Dragon Electronics Fishing Rod Advance includes a retractable rod and fishing line, and even comes with a plastic fish that you can stick on the end of the line.
