The DIY Newton iPhone Skin

Some of us who grew up during the golden ages of Silicon Valley have built up a sort of nostalgia based around the old rainbow Apple logo. While this version of the log was featured on the Newton, we haven’t seen it on any Apple products since the logo was officially changed in 1998. Strangely enough, that’s when Steve Jobs ...

OMG! Awesome Party Guy Vid! YouTube Halloween Costume

We’ve seen some really cool Halloween costume ideas the last few days, including the iPhone costume and the iPod Ad costume. And look at this! We’ve actually found one not centered around an Apple product. The “OMG! Awesome Party Guy Vid!” YouTube Costume is very clearly homemade, but isn’t a half-bad copy of the video stats section of YouTube. Though ...

Russian CD Fanatics Add Discs To Their Wardrobe

These guys really love their CDs. So much so, that they have made a wardrobe out of them. What looks to be CD armor, these guys have put together some gear out of recycled compact discs (might spark flames if you sit too fast on the CD chair). I strongly suggest not wearing this out in public unless you want ...

Ever wondered what would happen if a Stormtrooper were to land in downtown Shibuya? Well, apparently it leads to an all-out Stormtrooper dance party.

Using Skateboard Grip For No More iPhone Slippage

One thing the iPhone was NOT made for is staying where you place it. Try getting that thing to sit still on a slightly angled slippery surface. And none of us want to let a $400 device smash to the floor. Here’s a cool mod to help the problem. Go to your local skate shop (there’s probably one within 20 ...

In Case Urban Warfare Were To Break Out: Urban Combat Umbrella

Who knows when the commies will start spying on us again. If he were still around, Joe McCarthy might recommend every man, woman, and child to own an Urban Combat Umbrella, an Umbrella with an attached target scope. While it’s by no stretch the first umbrella we’ve discussed, it might be the most useful. Sick of people barging into you ...

Awesome iPod Ad Halloween Costume Idea

This year I’ve decided to be a RPG style dwarf for Halloween (mostly because I couldn’t think of a way to be a Tauren or a Death Knight), including a dwarf mask called Motorhead, and a cool looking fake sword. Though I probably should have put more thought into it, like these guys. I don’t know about you, but I ...

Park to Play: Use Your Car as a Game Controller

Why screw around with some flimsy racing wheel when you can use your own car to control the game? This concept has been utilized before, but a new system called Park to Play could make it possible for the average consumer to bring the experience home. In addition to using the steering wheel and the pedals, opening and closing the ...
