Created by Dutch designer Stijn Ossevoort, Flare is a dress embroidered with wind-sensitive lights, arranged to form dandelions. Just imagine – it’s your wedding day, and it’s at the beach, just like you’ve always imagined it.
Some mods look deceptively simple, like this customized PSP 3000. Sure, you see a few lights, and if you check out the in-progress pictures, you can even see more of the upgrades and fitting progress. But the end result is a disco inferno of lights and sounds that you’d never expect from looking at this picture.
If there’s one thing us geeks know how to do is turn the everyday into something fantastically dorky. Our latest invention? LED flowers, trees and shrubs.
This high-tech plantlife does away with such petty annoyances as dirt, water and sunlight, replacing them with an ongoing thirst for electricity.
This wouldn’t be the first L4D + Xbox 360 combo we’ve featured here on technabob, but I think it’s my new favorite.
Modder Tjpitbull decked out his 360 with a complete Left 4 Dead inspired look, covering the entire case with a distressed military green paintjob on both the console and controller.
I know, we’re more than a month away from Hanukkah, but when I saw these awesomely geeky LED Menorah kits today, I just had to give them a mention. Heck, if it were the middle of April, I’d probably still write about them.
Our pals over at Evil Mad Science Labs have created these battery-operated “Deluxe” LED Menorah kits which let you choose the type of lights you like the best.
While most everyone I know has been heading off to get a flu shot, I’d personally rather get injected with a dose of Bioshock’s EVE serum instead of a supposedly dead H1N1 virus grown in chicken eggs.
This Bioshock 2 EVE syringe is an exact replica of the nasty looking hypodermic implement found throughout the game.
Mega Man fan Nicholas may not have scored the top spot in Capcom Unity’s Mega Man tribute contest, but he has certainly won my heart with his colorful and pixelated light-up figure.
Now, at this point, you may be thinking “colorful?
I can’t say whether or not this Proton Pack will actually trap ghosts, but from this brief glimpse, there is one thing I can say for certain: this badass project is sure to score the top prize at Halloween costume contests, and isn’t that worth more than a ghost in a box?
The entire costume–you didn’t think it was just the Proton Pack, did you?–took
I’m a bit surprised that this isn’t in Japan. Look at them pixel flames burn! That’s the new “torch” of the Motherland statue in Cherkassy, Ukraine. The statue is one of several Motherland statues built in several locations across the former Soviet Union to commemorate the people who fought or died in World War II.
Yep, Halloween is barely upon us and here I go jumping the gun with Christmas stuff long before Turkey Day has even arrived. Oh well, calendars be damned. It’s finally time to rid of that boring old star on top of your Christmas tree this year, and swap it out with something much better.
Ladies and gentlemen: World Peace is within our reach, thanks to d*light. Designed by Diana Lin, d*light is a “combination of ambient lighting and cushion”, a benevolent matrimony of woven polyester and SMD LEDs. It provides a soft light and just the right amount of warmth, such that even the Devil himself will repent and come back to the arms of the Maker after hugging d*light.
d*light can be plugged in via a 6-volt AC adapter, but it makes more sense to power it with 4 AA batteries, in which case it will bring endless joy and eternal hope for up to 4 hours.
When I first saw this clock design, I was scratching my head wondering why you’d want a clock that doesn’t keep time at all. After all, who wants a clock that you have to manually change the time on every time the minute changes?
This wouldn’t be the first time I’ve seen a clock fabricated from an old hard drive. But this is by far the most amazing, dramatic hard drive clock you’ll see today. Or any day for that matter.
Polish modder mb1988 built this hard drive clock uses the old persistence-of-vision (POV) illusion, which display phantom “hands” on the face of the spinning drive platter.
Look at this thing. Do you want it sitting under your desk, or worse, on top of it, stretching those skeletal robot doom fingers toward your soul? Or, y’know, your son. Really, whatever’s convenient. (Note: the correct answer here is no).
Don’t get me wrong.
