It was a strange sight on London’s Westminster Bridge when people saw Daleks rolling about, getting ready to exterminate everyone. The procession included four generations of Daleks, showing how the mutant creatures had evolved during the years.
Planning on heading to London any time soon? There’s no better way to get around besides the Underground (aka the “Tube”). Of course, you’ll need a map, right? Well geeks and geekettes, have I got a Tube map for you.

Remember lava lamps? This modern update on the classic lava lamp does away with cords, instead promoting its ooey-gooey goodness using fire.

If you thought those wall-size arcade artworks I wrote about the other day were a bit too bold for your taste, you might want to check out these slightly more subtle Tetris-inspired mirrors hanging on your wall instead.
The latest men’s watch from London’s STORM offers a modern display with a retro spin. The watch reveals the current time using a series of numeric discs which rotate behind wedge-shaped portals around the perimeter of its face.
See that little robot guy in the upper right corner of the Technabob site header? He’s the original mascot of our humble little website, inspired by the classic arcade game Berserk.
