Beetlecam Wildlife Robot Gets Up Close and Personal With the Lions

Beetlecam Wildlife Robot Gets Up Close and Personal With the Lions
Since they don’t have feelings (yet), it’s an obvious use for robots to send them into the battlefield to disarm bombs and IEDs. However, this is the first time that I’ve seen a robot used to do something that could be equally as life-threatening: getting face-to-face with untamed wildlife.

The 64-Boy: the Littlest N64 Console

The 64-Boy: the Littlest N64 Console
If you’ve still got an N64, you probably haven’t used it in a while. The age of Nintendo’s 64-bit gaming platform didn’t stop Bentomo from shrinking his N64 into a portable form. I have to say that this build is totally amazing, reminding me of the TurboGrafix-16 portable, the TurboExpress.

Play NES Games on Your Kindle, Sorta.

Play NES Games on Your Kindle, Sorta.
I wondered how long it would take for someone to hack the Amazon Kindle in order to play games. Unfortunately, from what I’ve seen, the games don’t look all that cool on that monochrome e-ink screen.

Eve Multi-Boxing Rig Lets One Guy be Massively-Multiplayer All by Himself

Eve Multi-Boxing Rig Lets One Guy be Massively-Multiplayer All by Himself
This insane looking computer setup lets the guy controlling it play numerous MMORPG sessions of the same game at the same time. Hacked together by Zhek Kromtor, his computing rig is used for playing multiple rounds of EVE Online simultaneously.

Email-Counting T-Shirt: T is for “Too Much Tech in This”

Email-Counting T-Shirt: T is for “Too Much Tech in This”
Chris Ball and his wife Madeleine created an email-counting shirt. If you’re looking for a valid justification for the existence of a shirt that can count new emails in binary form then you must be new to technabob.

Flamethrower Scooter: Keep Back at Least 16 Feet

Flamethrower Scooter: Keep Back at Least 16 Feet
I’ve certainly seen plenty of trucks and emergency vehicles on the road with signs that say “do not follow,” but I never really understood why they say that. Now here’s a vehicle that really needs one of those signs.

How to Make Your Own Trick Dice

How to Make Your Own Trick Dice
Hacker, modder, and all-around madman KipKay is at it again. The guy who brought us the crazy Mr. Microphone spy hack has managed to figure out an easy way to make dice that roll the same number every single time you roll them.

World of Warcraft Attacked by Key-Logging Trojan

World of Warcraft Attacked by Key-Logging Trojan
There’s a new threat in Azeroth, one so fearsome that not even the combined might of the Alliance and the Horde can stop it: Hackers. Apparently a trojan has been spreading that intercepts the authentication code generated by the Blizzard Authenticator.

Keybag: Computer Keyboards Get New Life as a Purse

Keybag: Computer Keyboards Get New Life as a Purse
I barely even notice most purses, which is pretty simple because I’m a guy. But hey, this looks like a great purse to me! This makes the perfect Valentine’s gift for your girlfriend. On top of showing her how much of a geek you were for buying it, she gets this great purse that’s actually made out of 393 individual computer keys!

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).

PS3 Wireless Visual Interface: Screw the Wand Sony, Give Us This One Instead.

PS3 Wireless Visual Interface: Screw the Wand Sony, Give Us This One Instead.
It’s not even 2010 but I already know what I want for next year’s Christmas. Modder/genius/my new Santa Claus techknott – a disciple of no other than master modician Ben Heck – recently unveiled one of the most awesome pieces of hardware I have ever seen: a PS3 wireless visual interface (WVI).

Mechwarrior: Living Legends Crysis Mod – You Got Your Robots in My Fps!

Mechwarrior: Living Legends Crysis Mod – You Got Your Robots in My Fps!
Still waiting for MechWarrior 5, eh? What about a mod based on a cutting-edge engine?  Will that tide you over? If so, the Wandering Samurai team have quite a gift for you, as they have just released the beta version of their Crysis mod MechWarrior: Living Legends.

Gameboy Hidden Inside a Calculator

Gameboy Hidden Inside a Calculator
In this era of mobile and handheld gaming, it’s becoming harder to hide your in-class distractions. But no one ever suspects the calculator; a student clutching a phone is clearly messing around, but someone with a calculator?

Guitar Hero Drums Hacked to Play Real Music

Guitar Hero Drums Hacked to Play Real Music
While word on the street is that future versions of Rock Band might actually teach you how to play real instruments, modder Andy Lunn couldn’t wait that long and figured out a way to make real music with his Guitar Hero drum kit.

Moto G4 Mac Mod Speeds Down the Road

Moto G4 Mac Mod Speeds Down the Road
Now in all my research of the old Apple PowerMac G4, I can’t find anything in the spec sheets that mention a 49cc, 2-stroke petrol engine. I must have missed that part somewhere. As a matter of fact, this is the first Mac I’ve ever seen that measures its speed in MPH, not MHz.

Mp3 Grenade Redefines ‘Bombtrack’

Mp3 Grenade Redefines ‘Bombtrack’
As far as hacks and mods go, retrofitting a decommissioned hand grenade with mp3 playing guts is on the top of the clever and creative list. But as far as real world application is concerned? Well, I wouldn’t be whipping this thing out at work anytime soon.
