Are You a Debian Nerd? Then You Can Play NES on Your Palm Pre, Double Literally
Do you know what a chroot is? No? Then let’s file this under Cool Shit We Don’t Understand, because I have no freaking idea either: A bunch of cool nerds at Pre Dev Wiki (motto: “Let’s open this beast up”) have managed to coerce the newly released iPhone rival Palm Pre to run the popular NES emulator FCEUltra.

Screw Hi-Def: Student Builds 64 Rgb-LED Color Tv
23-year old Edo Kriegsmann is not swayed by fads. Okay I don’t actually know that, but it seems that that is the case, as he is defying the HD trend and all that it entails –  billion to one contrast ratios, screens with the surface area of small towns  and of course stroke-inducing price tags – with his color TV that has – get this – 64 RGB-LED pixels.

Polonium, Oxygen, Phosphorus Mousepad: Now That’S a Deadly Mixture
Breaking news: chemists have stumbled upon the recipe of doom: Polonium, Oxygen and Phosphorus, or PoOP. Problem is, the price stinks: the PoOP mousepad sells for $16 USD at Mousepad Warehouse. There’s no way I’m paying $16 for a mousepad.

The RX-78 statue – 8th Wonder of the World, King of all Statues, Future Prime Minister – is finished. It’s done. It’s awesome. It’s bitchin.  Japan the best. Japan is the Michael Jordan of nations. Japan is the knees of the bee’s knees.

Clockwork Orange Overclocked Custom Pc: Viddy Well Done
Modder/droog/man of the moment David Penfold aka Mremulator was inspired by an award-winning custom rig and decided to go totally bolshy yarblockos with his own build.

Pimp Your Psp-3000 With Xcm Custom Faceplates

Magic Mushrooms Shirt: Mario Caught in a Shady Shroom Deal
Listen kids, too much of anything is bad for you. Look at Mario. You think he’s still as healthy as when he was fighting ol’ D-Kong back in ’81? You all think you’re doing him a favor, feeding him all those stars and flowers and leaves and other inedible but somehow magical power-ups.

Blaster USB Hub: 4 Ports in Disguise

Blaster USB Hub: 4 Ports in Disguise
This Blaster 4-port USB hub is a minor fail. I mean, it’s cool that it transforms into a laptop (which you can then connect to a real laptop); it’s just that Blaster doesn’t transform into a laptop.
