The Cthulhu is one of the creepiest and freakiest fictional monster abomination horror entities in existence, but the people behind the Cthulhu Weenie Roaster seem to think that it’s something you’d like to look at while roasting your weenies.
Items referencing companion cubes, defective turrets, ATLAS, P-body, GLaDOS, even Wheatley himself are far too obvious for those who want to be members of the Portal 2 insider’s club. This piece of jewelry is a much more subtle choice for the discerning Portal 2 fan.
When I was still a kid, I used to sit in that little shopping cart seat where the frozen stuff goes. I remember pretending I was riding on a roller coaster while my mom pushed the cart while she shopped.
We have seen our share of geeky cufflinks around here, like the USB cufflinks a while back. I personally have no need for cufflinks. The last time I held a set of cufflinks was in the late 80’s when my cousin got married, and I didn’t know what they were.
I like wristwatches, even if I don’t wear them. I like to look at the cool designs and I, especially like the watches that have the intricate little gears and parts to the movement inside. I can only imagine how complex designing one of those watches would be.
Remember the Chinese dude who built himself a 5-ton Megatron? Well, the man going by the nickname “Steel Legend” is back and he’s made a bunch more scrap metal Transformers, from Autobots to Decepticons. He sure love robots.
A while back, I came across some fun business card holders that looked like classic gaming systems. But for some reason, they didn’t include the original PlayStation in the mix. Fans of the retro PlayStation will be happy to know that they too can hand out their business cards out of a tiny version of their favorite console.
Thermaltake introduced the BMW Group Designworks USA co-designed Level 10 computer case a while back, and I thought the thing was really cool. The big downside was that the case was a bit cramped for some geeks with large video cards, and it also cost almost $800 bucks.
While I was digging around looking at that awesome metal AT-AT sculpture by artist Sage Werbock (aka “The Great Nippulini” – don’t ask), I stumbled onto an even bigger, badder metal creation over on his Etsy shop…
This awesome-looking AT-AT was created by Sage Werbock. He is an expert welder and blacksmith. Sage put this AT-AT together using scrap parts salvaged from old computers and some sheet metal. I have to say that the result looks pretty impressive.
Ever wanted to print something using one of those 3D material printers, but didn’t like how it just spat out some sort of weird plastic composite? Well thanks to new advances in the technology, you can now print 3D objects out of sturdy titanium.
I have no idea what would compel someone to either make or buy this thing, but the sheer absurdity of it made me want to mention it. What you’re looking at, my friends, is what I’m reasonably certain is the first (and last) ever Cylon Centurion toilet paper dispenser.
The guys over at Legit Reviews were walking the aisles at the PDXLAN 16.5 gaming conference in Portland this week, when they spotted this awesome PC casemod. Yeppers, you’re looking at the official beer keg PC.
I always have wished that Apple never moved away from the nice brushed aluminum back of the original iPhone. I never really cared to for the fingerprint magnet backs on the 3G/3GS and 4. And with all the buzz about iPhone 4’s and their easily damaged back glass, it’s no wonder people are looking for creative solutions, like this replacement back.
Aside from a seeming love for the letter ‘k’, Karas Kustoms also makes sweet-looking cases for the iPhone 4. Thsi metal case gives the phone an even more industrial look than it has when it ships from Apple.
