LEGO Reenactment of the Usa Vs England World Cup Match

LEGO Reenactment of the Usa Vs England World Cup Match
The world is presently going bonkers over the World Cup, which happens every four years. The US did really well in a recent match, which was promptly reenacted with LEGOs to commemorate the momentous occasion. I don’t know what’s more amazing, this little stop-motion reenactment or the fact that the USA is actually doing pretty well in the World Cup this year.

Ea Sports Superstars: the Latest Facebook Timesink for Football Nuts
And by football I mean soccer. EA Sports FIFA Superstars – made in collaboration with Facebook vet Playfish – is a light version of SEGA’s Football Manager, made more fun of course by the prospect of matching wits with your Facebook friends, and even other players on Facebook.

Japanese Soccer Robot Could Put Human Players Out of Business

Japanese Soccer Robot Could Put Human Players Out of Business
Actually, probably not. Robots are still clunkers in my book. However, it looks like the RoboCup Japan Open 2010 is currently happening in Osaka, Japan. It’s the world’s biggest robot soccer tournament (!) and has 225 teams from all over the world competing for the ultimate title in robot soccerdom!

Misoccer iPod Speaker Dock is a Real (Foot)Ball
This has got to be the most ridiculous looking iPod dock I’ve seen in a while. In preparation for the 2010 World Cup, the guys over at Speakal have announced their new miSoccer. The miSoccer ($119 USD) works just like any other iPod speaker dock, except it looks like a soccer ball (or for the majority of the globe – a football).

Space Foosball: Foosball Gets Virtual

Space Foosball: Foosball Gets Virtual
Space Foosball is a modern-day spin on the old foosball table does away with those mechanical men and ping pong balls and replaces them with pixels and a physics engine. The cool thing about the virtual foosball players and ball is that they’re still controlled by the same sort of spinny axle controllers that traditional foosball machines use.

Cop a Feel: Mouse Shaped Like Hot Chick’S Torso
You can cop a feel every single day with these bizarre computer mice shaped like hot women’s torsos. Unfortunately, since they have no heads or limbs, it will probably make you feel like a creepy necrophiliac serial killer type with each right-click.

Robot Soccer Lets You Bend It Like Bender

Robot Soccer Lets You Bend It Like Bender
Sure, these little robots might not be able to drop-kick or head a soccer ball – but that doesn’t mean they’re not cool. This mini robot soccer (or football depending on your homeland) game looks like lots of fun for you and your friends when you need a break from slaving away in your cubicles.

Shiro Mp3 Player Inspired by Soccer Ball

Shiro Mp3 Player Inspired by Soccer Ball
Here’s an MP3 player that doesn’t look like any other I’ve seen. Designed originally for the World Cup tournament, the Shiro AS MP3 Player looks a whole lot like a miniature soccer ball. Sure, the Shiro won’t win any prizes for storage capacity, maxing out at 1GB of memory, but it certainly gets my endorsement for its cool design.
