Pac-Man Text Adventure: Turn Left, Eat Dots

Pac-Man Text Adventure: Turn Left, Eat Dots
I know, I know. The year is 2007 and I’m writing two stories in a row about Pac-Man. But I really couldn’t resist this one. Pac-Txt is a great mashup between the classic 1980s arcade game and Zork.

Is This Weird Al’s Computer?

Is This Weird Al’s Computer?
Ready to get your polka on? This unassuming accordion happens to house a complete PC under hidden inside its bellows. The Enrico accordion case mod project took an old squeezebox, gutted it out and loaded it with a Linux server, designed to store the builders’ digital music collection.

Mmmm… Donut Flash Drives

Mmmm… Donut Flash Drives
What better way to get your day going than with little chocolate donuts? Check out these little USB flash drives that happen to look like Homer’s favorite high-carb treat. In addition to the traditional chocolate frosting, they’re also available in strawberry (my personal favorite) and some weird green shade too (moldy donut?)

Monster Piggy Banks Eat Your Money for Lunch

Monster Piggy Banks Eat Your Money for Lunch
I think these goofy guys look more like space aliens than monsters, but you get the point. Put your money in the mouth of these Money Monsters and they’ll gulp it down without so much as a “thank you”. While they might not be polite, that doesn’t mean the Money Monsters aren’t vocal.

Error Message of the Day

Error Message of the Day
My previous all-time favorite error message was “Transaction Cannot Start in Firehose Mode,” but I think I have a new one to top the list. Apparently this error occurs when there isn’t anything wrong. The head-scratcher of an error message simply reads “Error: No error occurred.”

Friend’s Xbox 360 Died? Send Your Condolences.

Friend’s Xbox 360 Died? Send Your Condolences.
If you’re into video games at all, chances are you know somebody who had an Xbox 360 crap out on them. Here’s your chance to show you care by sending them this clever condolence card. Greeting card artist bsangel created this Xbox 360 Red Rings of Death card which lets your grieving gaming pals know your heartfelt wishes in their time of need.

Nintendo Famicom Kleenex Cozy: Paper Mario, Literally

Nintendo Famicom Kleenex Cozy: Paper Mario, Literally
A perfect bathroom accessory to complement to those Mario Brothers air fresheners, this tissue box cover looks just like the original Japanese Nintendo Famicom console. The box slips over the top of a standard box of tissues, and dispenses them from the cartridge slot.

Simcity Bricks Your System, Literally

Simcity Bricks Your System, Literally
This has got to be one of the best video game promotional items that I’ve ever come across. It’s so simple, yet brilliant. It’s an actual custom-cast brick that was used to promote the classic MAXIS/EA city-building game SimCity 2000. The rare item is currently available for bid over on eBay, but is located in the UK, so shipping a heavy brick across the pond might set you back a bit of coin.

Adobe Photoshop Cs3 for iPhone

Adobe Photoshop Cs3 for iPhone
So now that you’ve snapped a few photos with your iPhone’s super-duper camera, where do you turn to edit your pix? Do you dock your iPhone with your computer, sync up with iTunes, then open the photos in your desktop image editing software?

Robot Laughs Its Shiny Plastic Ass Off

Robot Laughs Its Shiny Plastic Ass Off
I’ve certainly seen my share of stupid robot tricks in my day, but this is the first time I’ve seen one have a hysterical laughing fit. Sure, the $3,000 Speecys SPC-101C programmable robot can walk and dance around, but more importantly, it’ll laugh at your bad jokes if you train it properly.

Q*Bert Qollects Quarters Quite Quickly

Q*Bert Qollects Quarters Quite Quickly
I saw this poster over on eBay earlier today, and I thought it was really funny. Designed as a promotional piece to encourage arcades to carry the classic game Q*Bert, somebody in the marketing department at Gottlieb got the bright idea to replace pretty much every letter they could with the letter “Q”.

Are You Looking at My Headgear?

Are You Looking at My Headgear?
So what do you suppose this strange contraption is? Could it be some kind of thought control device? Perhaps a new version of the Flowbee hair-vacuum? Maybe it’s an alien brain extraction system? Or is it just the latest fashion trend from the runways in Milan? Sorry to burst your bubble, but this goofy looking helmet is a newfangled head massager.

Xbox 360: a Space Odyssey

Xbox 360: a Space Odyssey
Has your Xbox 360 ever overheated? Do you dread the three Red Rings of Death? Have I got a t-shirt for you. Inspired by the demented HAL9000 computer from the classic science fiction flick, 2001: A Space Odyssey, it shows the inimitable RRoD symbol along with the saying “I’m afraid I can’t let you play that, Dave.”

Idrink Therefore Iam

Idrink Therefore Iam
The brilliant minds of industrial design firm Sonic Design came up with this design for an iPod-inspired bottle opener called the iDrink. In keeping with Apple’s DRM (Drinker’s Rights Management) policies, the iDrink opener will only open bottles which have been purchased from the iDrink store (99 cents each).

Doggie Cam Takes Dog’s Eye View Photos

Doggie Cam Takes Dog’s Eye View Photos
Our friends over at CScout Japan turned me onto this wacky digital camera that straps to your dog’s neck and can automatically snap pictures throughout the course of the doggie day. TakaraTomy’s Wonderful Shot camera keeps a visual diary of the happenings in your dog’s life by snapping an image every so often.

IPhone Speaker Skin: How to Look Loud

IPhone Speaker Skin: How to Look Loud
The latest in DecalGirl’s series of skins for Apple’s iPhone is a real hoot. Perhaps to overcompensate for the notoriously low volume on the iPhone’s speakers, the Bass is Good sticker set makes your phone look like a mini-boombox. If only all those speakers were really functional.
