This Modded Game Boy Arcade Cabinet Is Amazing


Here’s a little nostalgia to end the week — an original Game Boy for you, first launched in 1989. Some modders took the venerable handheld and turn it into a not so portable, but awesome little arcade unit that plays Mario Land, Pokemon, and all the other great Game Boy...


StealthArmor Fixes iPhone 4 Reception Issues?


Only days ago, the StealthArmor was simply another type of iPhone case, albeit an interesting one because it’s not really a case, just an adhesive that kept the phone’s profile slim still. Now, the protective covering could become popular as a solution to the reception issues that many iPhone 4...


The RetroN 3 Plays NES, SNES & Genesis Games


If you weren’t aware, the license for manufacturing NES, Genesis, and SNES consoles has been open for a few years now, so we’ve seen a bunch of third-party manufacturers come up with their own takes on those classic game systems. This one, the RetroN 3, manages to combine all three. It...


Have No Friends And Want To FaceTime? Call Apple


So here’s a scenario: you just got your fancy brand new iPhone 4, and you want to FaceTime with a person. (FaceTime is a verb now. I just invented it.) Sadly, you have no friends (or really, no friends with an iPhone 4, which is quite possible). Well, just call up...

Pedal Powered Submarine

The Scubster Is A Pedal Powered Submarine


This is a pedal, yes pedal powered submarine, the Scubster.  We’re not sure on how you control the level of buoyancy, or should we say depth, but it’s built using a customized gear mechanism and belt drive from a Strida bike. The French designer, Rousson, says that top speed is...

Ice Straw Tray

Ice Straw Maker


The hot summer days are upon us – well, not really, at least not here in LA.  But you catch my drift.  You could cool down with a cold refreshing drink, but in our opinion it just wouldn’t be complete without an Ice Straw.  Say what?  An Ice Straw, you...
