Behind the Scenes of a Star Wars Psa Reveals C-3PO & R2-D2′S Secret
I headed to the Star Wars blog after reading about the impressive Tauntaun wedding cake, but I became more interested at this old footage. It’s a clip showing a bit of behind-the-scenes of a Public Service Announcement released in 1977, shortly after A New Hope came out.

Anvil Launching: It’S Exactly What It Sounds Like
The man pictured below is Gay Wilkinson. What on Earth could he be doing? Well, let’s look at what we have here: two anvils, a fuse connected to lots of gunpowder, and a man who knows how to have a good time.

R2-D2 Hoodie is Bleepin’ Awesome

R2-D2 Hoodie is Bleepin’ Awesome
Etsy seller frosti calls herself a “vessel of awesomeness”, and after looking at her apparel, I kind of agree. Here’s her R2-D2 hoodie: Plus points for the R2-D2 head/hood. frosti’s selling it for $92 (USD), but before you hit the link, know that it’s only available in XL.

Turbo: Action-Packed, Geeky Teen Movie. So Yeah, Satisfaction is Not Guaranteed.

Turbo: Action-Packed, Geeky Teen Movie. So Yeah, Satisfaction is Not Guaranteed.
But hey it’s for free, so we can’t really complain. No one’s forcing you to watch it. But let me let me tell you more about the movie so you can decide if you’d rather watch a puppy who can’t get up.

Vintage Calculators Web Museum: the Accountant’s Happy Place

Vintage Calculators Web Museum: the Accountant’s Happy Place
If you think that a bunch of old calculators isn’t as interesting as a collection of old toy robots, well you’re mostly right. A calculator is useful – hell, even an abacus is more useful than a toy robot –  but it’s also one of the most boring gadgets ever.

Boy You Lookin’ Hot: Mini Lighter Cufflinks

Boy You Lookin’ Hot: Mini Lighter Cufflinks
You’ve been stealing glances at each other the whole night. All you see is that hot little number with the shiny red dress, everything else is black and white. She finishes her drink, and sashays off to the terrace, the light bouncing off her hips as they sway.

Construction and erection of the 18-m (59 ft) Tetsujin 28-go (aka Gigantor) statue in Kobe, Japan wrapped up a few days ago, more than a couple of weeks after the Gundam statue – the Neil Armstrong of robot statues – was dismantled.

Master Sword & Hylian Shield Replicas: It’S Dangerous to Cosplay Alone! Take These.

Master Sword & Hylian Shield Replicas: It’S Dangerous to Cosplay Alone! Take These.
Fauxblademaster Aaron makes “convention safe” video game swords and shields in his spare time. He hasn’t made a ton of them yet, but each of his creations are very detailed. Here’s one of his creations, a fiberglass replica of the Twilight Princess version of the Master Sword, Link’s trusty weapon in the Legend of Zelda series.

Optimized Prime: Customized Revenge of the Fallen Optimus Prime Toy on Ebay

Optimized Prime: Customized Revenge of the Fallen Optimus Prime Toy on Ebay
Just about the only thing good about the recent Transformers movie are the new versions of our beloved Autobots and Decepticons. Although I’m sure some of you will say that even the new designs suck. Also the movie changes POVs and angles every nanosecond so we hardly got to appreciate the designs anyway.

Star Wars Baby Costumes: Force Awwwwww

Star Wars Baby Costumes: Force Awwwwww
I know that Halloween’s still more than a month away, but after seeing the awesomely cute Barf Vader, I decided to do a thorough research on – okay I hit Amazon. and Etsy. More on that later; let’s just say that most of the costumes will make your spawn ten times more adorable, while some will probably cause your child to hate you when he or she grows up and sees your old Halloween pictures.

Spock Monkey: Half-Vulcan, Half-Sock, Half-Monkey

Spock Monkey: Half-Vulcan, Half-Sock, Half-Monkey
That’s right: each Spock Monkey is a combination of three halves, resulting in one logical, emotionally detached yet huggable primate. I used Vulcan math to calculate Spock Monkey’s constitution. Each Spock Monkey is lovingly handmade, so each of them is unique.

Tesla Turbine Pencil Sharpener: Not Even Half as Awesome as It Sounds

Tesla Turbine Pencil Sharpener: Not Even Half as Awesome as It Sounds
This invention reminds me of an episode in The Big Bang Theory where Leslie Winkle dips a banana into a container filled with liquid nitrogen, smashes the instantly frozen fruit with a hammer and then picks up the bits and chunks and puts them on top of her cereal.

Kunai USB Drive: Because Ninjas Need to Save Data Too

Kunai USB Drive: Because Ninjas Need to Save Data Too
Ninjas have a lot of sweet moves. There’s the throw-a-smoke-bomb-and-disappear-move, the run-so-fast-to-evade-bullets-move, and the flaming-giant-skeleton-beast-thing-summoning-that’s-not-even-a-ninja-move-anymore-move. But none of their 108 million moves can help them save their data. That’s why everyday at sunset, after practicing their killyouwithapinchinthearmpitjitsus, ninjas power up their PCs and order a bunch of Kunai USB drives.

Jones-Ing for Some Dungeons & Dragons Soda

Jones-Ing for Some Dungeons & Dragons Soda
Sometimes I’m still surprised by how mainstream, nay, cool geeks and nerds have become, and that there are lots of products that are just eager to win the geek’s attention (and money). Video game conventions now draw huge crowds, there are a billion tech websites as of this writing, movies based on comics and fantasy books are being produced left and right – I don’t know about you, but I sure didn’t have even the slightest bit of hope that the Watchmen would be turned into a movie when I first read it.

Legotron: Light Cycles Speeding Down the Block

Legotron: Light Cycles Speeding Down the Block
TRON is one of the most famous geek movies of all time, and what better way to pay homage to the film than with another geek favorite? Flickr user/blocksmith/80s baby (I suppose) 2×4 created these neat LEGO light cycles and even posted step-by-step instructions on his Flick page.
