Strange and Beautiful Junk Robots

Strange and Beautiful Junk Robots
These unusual robots were featured on the oddly named Russian website Ribbon Comedy Eye Girls. For some reason, the title of the site makes me think of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.

I think we’ve all had our share of Xbox 360s go the way of the notorious Red Ring of Death. The same recently happened to Technabob reader Jasper Stevens, and he decided to do something about it instead of the traditional call Microsoft tech support; wait for cardboard coffin; wait for refurbished 360; pray it doesn’t RRoD again cycle.

Wii Fit + Wii Sports + Ddr – Fun = Ifit Sports

Wii Fit + Wii Sports + Ddr – Fun = Ifit Sports
I’m reasonably certain this game is not Wii Fit or Wii Sports. Actually, I’m sure of it. Apparently another cheap Chinese knock-off, the makers of ifit Sports want us to think it’s a combination Nintendo’s popular sports and workout games.

Looking for a unique dock for your iPod? You might want to check out Speaker Bot, a dock that looks like a retro 1950s robot. The 18.5″ tall Speaker Bot is an “assemblage robot”, or in layperson’s speak, a robot made from old junk.

Sparebots Definitely have Feelings
Bloggers/photographers/tiny mecha manufacturers Lenny & Meriel take cold and complicated computer innards and turn them into something heartwarming: Sparebots. The photo above is captioned, “I think we should try a 5.” Awwww. And that’s a robot dog that poops lead.

Worst Mp3 Player, Ever. (Revisited)

If you don’t happen to have enough room for one of those 22-foot tall styrofoam robots to defend the homestead, that’s okay. Thanks to the wild and wonderful creations of robot insect builder TinyMinds, you can get your hands on some little robots which should do the trick just as well.

Worst Casemod Ever: Ubuntubox Cardboard Pc

Worst Casemod Ever: Ubuntubox Cardboard Pc

Playstation, Xbox Faked in 8-Bits
While these consoles from China may look slightly like their authentic counterparts, just one look under the hood, and you’ll see just how phony they really are. China’s ShenZhen LinFeng Electronics has cranked out a series of console knock-offs, imitating the look of all three generations of the Sony Playstation, the original Microsoft Xbox and even the Sega Saturn.
