The Internet is Nominated for the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize

The Internet is Nominated for the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize
While we freely give away Internets – as in “you win over 9,000 Internets, sir” – for awesome content seen online, this intangible infrastructure of awesome might soon win an award itself. And not just any award – the Internet is in the running for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Product of an Unholy Matrimony: Mac Osx on a Nokia N900

Product of an Unholy Matrimony: Mac Osx on a Nokia N900
Toni Nikkanen just earned himself a bit of Internet fame. With Apple and Nokia trying to bury each other in lawsuits, Nikkanen must have been aware of the irony when he posted a video on YouTube showing his nerdy (albeit useless) achievement: an N900 running Apple’s OS X 10.3, aka Panther – with the help of a pre-release version of PearPC.

Inflatable D20 Makes for Nerdy Pool Parties

Inflatable D20 Makes for Nerdy Pool Parties
Take this with you to the beach and you’ll certainly be the center of attention, mostly because a lot of people won’t know what the heck this huge polygon with numbers is. No one’s stopping you from actually using it to play D&D, just make sure your friends are okay with it.

New Mortal Kombat Movie in the Works?

New Mortal Kombat Movie in the Works?
Horror news website Bloody Disgusting “received word that Warner Bros. Pictures has been looking to redo Mortal Kombat“. I was a die-hard fan of the first game, simply because it was so ridiculous. I didn’t like the movie though, as young and devoid of standards as I was back then.

Hogwarts School Id Card: the Surefire Way to Not Buy Booze and Not Get in Bars

Hogwarts School Id Card: the Surefire Way to Not Buy Booze and Not Get in Bars
Harry Potter may not be in the spotlight these days, what with the vampires of Twilight, the Na’vi of Avatar, and the choir members of Glee. But I’m sure a lot of people still re-read J.K.

Barbie Powerwheels + Xbox 360 Controller + Nerd Power = Wi-Fi Warthogs

Barbie Powerwheels + Xbox 360 Controller + Nerd Power = Wi-Fi Warthogs
Where lesser men see a child’s toy when they look at a Barbie Powerwheels toy car, imaginative folk like Tim Higgins see a really fun real world Halo spinoff. Higgins’ Wi-Fi Warthogs are controlled using Xbox 360 controllers and a laptop mounted on each Warthog.

Final Fantasy Xiii Shiva and Odin Action Figures: Summon Them With Your Money

Final Fantasy Xiii Shiva and Odin Action Figures: Summon Them With Your Money
If there’s anything that the Final Fantasy series is known for, it’s character design. Notice I said known, not “famous” or “infamous”, because opinions among gamers go either way. Still, even if the human characters still come from the These Would Be Awesome for Cosplay School of Design, you’ve got to give it to the people who came up with the summons.

Sleep Remaining Indicator: Neither an Alarm Nor a Clock, but It Involves Legos and a Laser So Who Cares?

Sleep Remaining Indicator: Neither an Alarm Nor a Clock, but It Involves Legos and a Laser So Who Cares?
So what is it really? It is exactly what it says it is. Made by Nirav Patel, the Sleep Remaining Indicator is a homemade gadget that indicates how long you have to sleep by shining a laser beam on the ceiling (or I guess wherever you want it to shine).

Xbox 360 All Spark Casemod: Less Than Meets the Eye

Xbox 360 All Spark Casemod: Less Than Meets the Eye
Flickr user/human Cybertronian/modder givintats made an All Spark…case. While it won’t be giving life to gadgets (or pwning Megatron, a paradoxical ability that for some reason Optimus Prime only revealed when he was about to die again), I must admit it must be awesome to sit down and power up an ancient (looking) cube for some gaming.

Wow Epic Cooking Apron: Obtained Through Hours of Grinding, Chopping, Boiling, Baking…

Wow Epic Cooking Apron: Obtained Through Hours of Grinding, Chopping, Boiling, Baking…
…and other culinary activities that I know nothing about. I’m not even worthy of wearing a gray apron, if you know what I mean. In any case the World of Warcraft epic cooking apron is the perfect gift for skillful cooks who are also WoW fans (wonder how large the intersection is in that Venn diagram?).

Leia Vs. Jabba Star Wars Diorama Will Confuse Your Hormones

Leia Vs. Jabba Star Wars Diorama Will Confuse Your Hormones
From Sideshow Collectibles and Lucasfilm comes this limited-edition diorama of a classic scene from the Return of the Jedi. Okay I actually don’t know if it’s a classic scene or not because I’m not a big Star Wars fan.

Scare the Rain Off With the Batman Umbrella

Scare the Rain Off With the Batman Umbrella
Evil rain drops will avoid you as soon as you pop open the Batman Umbrella. Or not. It’s basically an umbrella that’s been cut in the most awesome way possible.

Paper Super Mario Brothers 3

Paper Super Mario Brothers 3
21-year old YouTube user smartkid82504 made this awesome stop motion film as his final project in his “Art and Alternative Media” class. Here’s what we might get if we mashed two Mario games together: Before you get overly excited, let me tell you now that barely anything happens in this very short film.

Super Mario Sweater Vest: the World’S Most Powerful Bully Magnet

Super Mario Sweater Vest: the World’S Most Powerful Bully Magnet
Unless of course the bullies in your area are gamers as well, in which case they’ll just ask that you hand this vest over to them. Or else. For those too young to know, the vest features a screenshot from World 1-1 of Super Mario Bros.

Whose side are you on? Pirates or ninjas? Wear this shirt and watch a debate break out.

Ryan Mclhinney: the Human Katamari Prince

Ryan Mclhinney: the Human Katamari Prince
Designer Ryan McElhinney must be a fan of Katamari Damacy; some of his lovely creations are basically huge mishmashes of toys that form what would mundane or traditional household fixtures, like this grandfather clock. McElhinney uses recycled toys for his creations, bonded together (with a katamari?)
