Magic Unicorn Beanie Allows You To Fit In With Charlie and the Crew

While I’m not sure we can call this the coolest beanie we’ve ever seen (because let’s be honest, we’ve seen some really awesome beanies), it’s definitely the only one that would make you feel at home inside of a fantasy novel.

Photoshopped or Real?

Those jackasses over at Boing Boing Gadgets have done it again. Posted a rad picture with no description. Look, is this really a camera with a damn garden growing out of the lens? It seems entirely plausible. Then again, it could be Joel photoshopping his pubes into sprouts. Link

Shaving the Mustaches of History

Update: Now with more Nazi flavah! Sometimes, a mustache can be a person’s calling card. In fact, the facial hair itself can become more famous than the poor mustached man. In these instances, the mustache and the man are probably of equal value. I must admit, I’m jealous of mustaches of such caliber. With the powers vested in us by ...

Back in the day there were two handheld consoles which ruled all. Game Boy was the vertical colorless classic and Sega Game Gear was the horizontal version of Genesis in your pocket.

Programmable RGB LED Strip

What’s a programmer to do. Buy a hard-to-find LED strip? Most likely. He’ll then probably spend weeks hacking it so he can interface it with an Arduino. Afterwards, the LEDs will fade in and fade out for weeks to come, as our hero desperately tries to make sense of all this. After meeting with a friend, our hero and his ...

LED Bottle Wall

Alex Beim must be a heavy drinker, ’cause I have no idea how he got so many empty bottles for his project. The LED Bottle Wall is a sight that seems appropriate for a Disney World attraction. Slews of LED lights penetrate the reflective surface of the bottles, creating an luminary effect that’s unmatched by Pink Floyd. Link

Atari 2600 iPod Dock

What is the deal with all these people ripping apart perfectly good video game consoles in favor of upgrading them with the latest technology? Sometimes retro is better! That being said, this is a nice looking iPod dock. It’s a broken iPod clock/radio shoved inside an Atari 2600 shell. My guess is that this mod took no more than an ...
