Sparkfun’S Autonomous Vehicle Race: Autobots,Rollout! No, Not There! Get Back Here!
Modder-friendly electronics company SparkFun Electronics recently held what they hope will be an annual event called the Autonomous Vehicle Competition, which is basically a race of proto-Autobots around one of SparkFun’s buildings. The contest was initially employees-only, but SparkFun realized it would be much more fun to have their customers join so that was what they did.

LEGO Flash Drives Make Losing Your Data a Snap

LEGO Flash Drives Make Losing Your Data a Snap
You’ve probably seen EagleTec’s Nano flash drive, a gadget that redefines “Nano” in terms of gadget size. The iPod Nano’s nanoness cannot compare to the EagleTec Nano’s. What could possibly be more awesome than a tiny flash drive?

Super Nice: Gamer Stuffs USB Hub Inside SNES Cartridge

Super Nice: Gamer Stuffs USB Hub Inside SNES Cartridge
Retro gamer/DIYer kristopher.hammar got sick of having a messed up gaming area. He regularly plays snes & nes games on his big TV, and everything was fine, except that the extension cables of the gamepads that he uses were all over the place.

Only in Japan: Giant Robot Rhinoceros Beetle

Only in Japan: Giant Robot Rhinoceros Beetle
The classic anime series Patlabor was set in the late 90’s/ early 2000’s. In it, the Tokyo Metropolitan Police use giant humanoid robots to fight crime. While they’re not quite there yet,there is absolutely no doubt in my mind that the Japanese will reach that level of awesomeness, such that geeks will commit crimes just so they can be arrested by giant robots.

Giant Alien Kubrick Will Scare Your Other Toys Away

Giant Alien Kubrick Will Scare Your Other Toys Away
Alien will always have a special place in our hearts. A place I’d rather not have but is there anyway, a place where the most horrible ideas for creatures are made real, creatures like the facehugger, the chestburster, and the slimy evil main Alien.

Give Your Living Room a Reset With the Ctrl Alt Del Pillows

Give Your Living Room a Reset With the Ctrl Alt Del Pillows
Ah, good old Ctrl+Alt+Del: it’s the Heimlich Maneuver of PCs. It’s a key combination used so often one wonders why there’s no single CtrlAltDel button yet for quick resets. And then one realizes that such a button already exists and that it is called the power switch.

Royal & Practical: Princess Toadstool Scarf With Pockets

Royal & Practical: Princess Toadstool Scarf With Pockets
Gege Crochet loves scarves. I think “scarves” is a weird word. Fortunately Gege’s scarves are anything but weird, like this nice Princess Toadstool scarf. She said that she made this scarf to complement a Mario scarf that she also made.

Eyeborg: Canadian Filmmaker Installs a Red LED Into His Prosthetic Eye
Filmmaker Rob Spence lost his eye when he was 11 years old. He was playing with a shotgun back in his grandfather’s farm in Ireland when it backfired. Now he and his partners in the Eyeborg Project want to “transform his loss into a superhuman strength” for art’s sake.

On Ebay: Candy Conquers the Final Frontier With Limited Edition Star Trek Pez Set

On Ebay: Candy Conquers the Final Frontier With Limited Edition Star Trek Pez Set
Trekkies like candies too. This limited edition, 8-piece Star Trek Pez gift set is further proof that Trekkies aren’t so different from you and me and therefore must not be shunned, no matter how obsessed they are with made up languages and men that wear headbands over their eyes.

Deceptiphone: LG Promotes Transformers 2 With a Special Edition of Their Versa Model
At the recent CTIA show, LG unveiled the special edition Transformers 2 Versa phone. Since the upcoming movie is about the bad guys hitting back (but didn’t they start this while thing in the first place?),

Play International Karate on the Go With the Commodore 64 Laptop
It only took Ben Heckendorn a week and a half to make a Commodore 64 laptop that really looks like it was from 1982. What can you do in a week and a half? Me? I can finish Contra in a week and a half.

Learn What Time It is With Karlsson’S Book Table Clocks

Learn What Time It is With Karlsson’S Book Table Clocks
We’ve already featured several quirky clocks from Karlsson, but these two designs grabbed my attention because they’re unique but still modest. Karlsson calls them table clocks, but I think they’ll be more at home on bookshelves.

The Latest Device From Aperture Science: Interactive Portal Shirt

The Latest Device From Aperture Science: Interactive Portal Shirt
I’ve seen a lot of geeky shirts, but these ones take the cake. Or not. Think Geek‘s April Fools offering for this year are “interactive portal shirts”, that mimic the portal effect popularized by Valve’s first-person puzzler.

Journey to the Final Final Frontier With the Star Trek Casket and Star Trek Urn

Journey to the Final Final Frontier With the Star Trek Casket and Star Trek Urn
How much of a Trekkie (or -er) are you? How far would you go? Roleplaying? Dressing up in costumes? Being fired into space in a photon torpedo casket? I’m not a Star Trek fan, but I must admit that the casket’s really decent; the logo is fairly small and the Photon Torpedo-inspired design is sleek.

Remember Digitalsoaps and her Playstation bath bars? Washington’s very own gadget glycerinator is back, along with more detailed video game controller soaps, like the Xbox 360 soap: Weighing in at 7 oz., the Xbox 360 controller soap is made of shea butter and is lovingly scented with “Mountain Dew fragrance oil.”
