  • Street legal bumper car navigating the urban jungle…

    Some kids spend the long stretches of summer and winter breaks playing video games and sleeping in late. The more entrepreneurial meanwhile take a seemingly innocent bumper car and transform it into a 100% street legal driving machine... Ready to feel the wind in your hair? Getting in touch with the open elements and looking geeky at the same time has never been cooler. The car you see above is an actual bumper car that has been modified to meet all road going laws. Yes, all laws. This i...
  • Windows 7 “Branded” themes coming soon.

    Themes, themes, and more themes are the answer to one of life's biggest problems -- bland UI styling. Themes give you a small part in customizing your computing experiences so that it's a more personal digital space. Happy joy, happy joy. Windows 7 comes with some pretty basic themeing options. They're not anything mind blowing, but better than nothing. Simple color changes of the windows borders, custom wallpapers, and custom transparency pretty much explain everything there is to be s...
  • Motherboard Lisa the ultimate geek art!
    by Mike
    Posted November 12th, 2009 at 6:30 am
    Have an idea for the zaniest gadget/tech inspired custom work of art of all time? I hope you have some creative chops because the designer and creator of the Motherboard Mona Lisa is a genius. Who created such a wondrous work of art? It hasn't been pin pointed on any one person, though you can gaze upon this site worth beholding at ASUS in Peitou, Taiwan. (Up for a little road trip?) Ya, geek art just got taken to a whole 'nother level. Come inside for a few closeups of this beat... ...
  • The LEGO key ring holder and gadget charger

    Oh the wonderful world of LEGOs how we love thee. Having some nerdy gadgets stashed away in your private layer or command center is cool. Having some form of geeky gadgetry sitting at your back door waiting to slap unsuspecting foes in the face is even better. The LEGO key ring & gadget charger is that gadget. Created by John Edgar Park of Makezine, he claims he got the inspiration for the project when he saw a LEGO key holder on a recent trip to LEGOland. Using is craftiness he threw toget...
  • Pac-Man Macbook Decal

    LEGO's just not your thing? Well then, the LEGO Macbook Logo holder we mentioned yesterday isn't exactly "up your alley" now is it? Not everyone likes LEGO's. It's ok. But those looking to add a little custom visual candy to their Macbook's and Macbook Pro's still have hope. Kickin' it old school on new age tech is always a cool blending of old and new. In the case of the Pac-Man decal above, the Apple logo on the back of the 'book yet again is cleverly aligned with the decal making these ...
  • Macbook LEGO Logo Holder decal

    Say that one ten times fast. As Mac's become more widespread and more popular, seeing someone sitting across form you with that glowing white label just isn't what it used to be. But you don't have to blend in with everyone else. Many who join club Mac may be hip, but only a few are true geeks. So why not show it with the Macbook Lego Logo Holder decal. Featuring a nifty little LEGO guy with a perfectly formed club hand holding your Apple logo out back. Hi-tech it is not. Cool -- very mu...
  • Let time crawl on by with the Cantena Chain Clock
    by Mike
    Posted November 10th, 2009 at 6:19 am
    Flash drives often get the novelty treatment, turning into anything and everything you can think of. But they're not the only gadget capable of such unlimited transformations. Ordinary clocks are so...well...ordinary. And, if you're the nerd you claim to be, a simple clock just won't do. Andreas Dober may have just the thing to bring out the geeky with a touch of industrialized person inside of you. The clock above certainly has a different look about it. For one, it's got a fairly large c...
  • Star Wars Backlit Coffee Table
    by Mike
    Posted November 9th, 2009 at 4:15 pm
    Try as I might, I couldn't come up with any humorous tagline. No clever organization of words. And not a single ounce of creativity could be coaxed from my mind. Is that bad? No. Simply a case of writers block. Still, you can't help but actually wanting to coin some funny phrase after looking at the Star Wars Backlit Coffee Table. This piece of artwork is truly "one of a kind". However, a rather rare ocurance in the art world is the bargain basement price this coffee table is *currentl...
  • BlackBerry development just became a lot more interesting…
    by Mike
    Posted November 9th, 2009 at 1:01 pm
    The BlackBerry Developer Conference kicked off today and RIM personnel didn't waste any time getting to the goods. For starters, OpenGL ES support is finally coming to the BlackBerry platform (OS 5.0+). If you didn't know, OpenGL is what gives modern smartphones such as the iPhone it's amazing graphics in such small packages. But what good is powerful hardware without software? Again RIM answers, though this answer is somewhat a surprise. Since the beginning of BlackBerry theme developm...

    I'm a tinkerer by heart. I love to fine tune my gadgets and software until they break -- then I do it all over again. Nature of the beast I guess. Mac OS X has usually been a rather simple more simplistic OS in that without help from 3rd parties, it is generally pretty involved to make any system tweaks. It doesn't matter if you actually don't know how or don't have time, I'm sure if a solution existed to drastically reduce your time spent tweaking you'd be all for it. What about something ...
  • Arm-mounted Flame Thrower: Become the law
    by Mike
    Posted November 4th, 2009 at 7:16 pm
    Neighbor's dog stepping on your last nerve? Kids across the street keep throwing their crap on your lawn? Put them in their place with an arm-mounted flame thrower. The brainchild/pyro behind this Inspector Gadget-esque device is Everett Bradford. The device, known to us mere mortals as the arm mounted flame thrower goes by a more studious "Prometheus". I don't care what it's called -- I want one. Construction is rather simple really. A small, wrist mounted butane tank and an arc genera...
  • On device BlackBerry Theme Store launched
    by Mike
    Posted November 4th, 2009 at 7:45 am
    Browsing themes downloads on a BlackBerry device isn't exactly fun, intuitive, or fast. Having a "theme browser/store" in a mobilized version is something BlackBerry users have been clamoring for. CrackBerry, in conjunction with MobiHand are finally releasing such a store bringing easy and fast theme browsing to BlackBerry handhelds. Searching through themes via Category, Newness, etc. give you plenty of ways to find what you want. Go ahead and give it a try. Find out more about the Crack...
