I’m totally stoked that Pacific Rim is finally hitting theaters today. I can’t wait to go see it and watch giant robots battle giant monsters on the IMAX screen. While awaiting the arrival of the film on the big screen, one of the giant Kaiju monsters apparently made its presence known at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego.
When you have the world’s largest headphones, you don’t put them on your head. You sit between the earcups and let the sound assault you. These monstrous headphones were created by Dallyn Rule for the recent Mini Maker Faire in Vancouver, B.C.
As a guy, I prefer a watch with a large face to one with a small one. Though I’m not sure I’d be comfortable wearing this beast. It’s a new watch from Diesel, called the Grand Daddy (model DZ7262), and it measures a ginormous 66mm x 73mm (~2.6″ x 2.87″).
While I really enjoy the occasional ATV or Jet-Ski ride, and regularly ride my bicycle, I have to say I’ve never been all that comfortable riding a motorcycle. Maybe it’s because the first time I rode on one, I was riding on the back of the seat with a crazy person behind the handlebars, holding on for dear life.
I’ve always wanted an arcade cabinet in my house so I could play all of the classic arcade games like they were meant to be played. But I keep putting off the purchase because I have more important things to do with my money, like pay for food and my mortgage.
When a standard human-sized refrigerator is just not enough, you can always buy this massive Robeys Meneghini La Cambusa refrigerator. It’s just $40,500(USD), and it’s perfect for the Hutt with a Hutt-sized appetite. You can probably even put a smuggler frozen in carbonite inside.
Remember the opening scene from Back to the Future where Marty plays his guitar through that giant speaker in Doc Brown’s lab? Well, a group of engineers at the University of Wisconsin sure do, and they decided to try and recreate the experience with their own enormous speaker.
Damn. We see plenty of amazing things here at Technabob, but this has to be the best LEGO ship in the universe. This amazing reproduction of Serenity in LEGO bricks measures 7 feet-long. It’s also 135 pounds, is made of 70,000 bricks, and it took 475 hours (spread over 21 months) to complete.
Arduino microcontrollers can do so many things and can be found in robots, video game hacks, you name it. The small size and programmability of these boards makes almost anything possible. But what if you want a huge Arduino… for reasons unknown and unfathomable?
Did you think that Garry King’s 54-pound LEGO Battlestar Galactica spaceship was impressive? Check out his new latest creation, the BSG Valkyrie, made entirely of LEGO bricks, and weighing in at a whopping 111 pounds!
I was staring outside my window, being bored and all kinds of lazy, when I noticed a soon-to-be-mama bird in the middle of building her nest. There was just something about how carefully she aligned the bits of leaves and twigs that got me thinking about what it might feel like to sleep in one.
Being a tech geek, you’ll more often find me playing video games than board games, but that doesn’t mean I don’t still enjoy a good old game of Scrabble. Sure, you won’t be playing with someone across the globe, like with Words with Friends, but at least you get to play with some actual wooden tiles.
Looking for a bright flashlight? Well if you find yourself somewhere that you need to light up a very dark or very large space, check out this awesome marvel of modern engineering, the 4Sevens XM18 flashlight.
