  • Star Wars-like holograms: HoloAD by Innovation Labs

    *Mobile Post* Think Star Wars-like holographic images are still years off from the hands of mere mortals? Well, to be fair, the examples at CES are more geared towards commercial uses. Even still, you can't beat the coolness. The 180 degree viewing angle and plug-n-play functionality mean you don't have to be a rocket scientist or programmer to get unique and captivating holographic images. In case you were wondering, the seemingly futuristic HoloAD displays images in SXGA and above ...
  • R2-D2…floating through the space and time of Star Trek…for real!

    And another funny, time passing picture to make your Monday less painful.... Above we have a rare occurrence of Star Wars and Star Trek blending. Though is such an occurrence really that rare. Space is huge and all, but you've got to meet at some point....right? R2-D2 floating through space kind of reminds of Mini me floating through space in Austin Powers. Except R2-D2 doesn't sound like a toddler... Full-size pic inside. (more...)...
  • Store the force in the palm of your hand with the Star Wars USB drives

    I don't know why there's a sudden increase in Star Wars gadgets -- first the Backlit Star Wars Coffee Table and now Star Wars USB flash drives -- but Star Wars fans and closet nerds alike are probably hovering on the edge of their seats as we speak. We've seen Star Wars themed flash drives and gadgets many times before but these Star Wars flash drives are just plain cool if not rather similar to many other Star Wars drives on the market. As is customary for popular memorabilia from big name mo...

    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...
  • Are you a double amputee with a good sense of humor? If so, someone on Craigslist would like to have a word with you…

    Physical deformations are never something to joke about. That is unless the person featuring the unfortunate deformation has fun with it themselves. If you've ever gone to an actual Halloween costume party, you know, one where the attendees actually get into and go over the top, you may have seen a full fledged Chewbacca costume with or without the standard C3PO parts strapped to his back. For one man in Austin, Texas, "spare parts" and the illusion of reality aren't good enough. No sir. He...
  • Become a living breathing R2-D2 with the official hoodie

    To protect myself from stupid lawsuits, I need to stress that the *official* in the title doesn't mean this is endorsed by anyone remotely tied to star wars, droids, or space exploration. With that out of the way.... Need a cool way to stay warm and represent the geek community? Look no further than the R2-D2 hoodie complete with themed hood. Whether your a simple nerd or a Star Wars fanatic, you can't deny that this hoodie is pretty sweet. There's only two negatives I see. (1) It's pric...

  • R2-D2 becomes gaming god. 8 consoles stuffed within. Projector and onboard sound system added bonus.

    Love classic games do ya? Have a thing for old beeping robots and wars that take place near the stars? Super. If you fit the bill, you may want to contact the Brian De Vitis, the creator of the R2-D2 Gaming Haven, and get the blueprints/instructions on how to build your own. Owning a life-sized R2-D2 replica cooler is geeky enough. Adding a gaming console to his innards takes the geek factor a step further. However, squeezing in 7 more consoles, an onboard sound system, and a projector to ...

  • Crime against humanity: “Spacebook” T-Shirt to never see the hairs of our chest..
    by Mike
    Posted September 15th, 2009 at 6:23 am
    Today is a sad day indeed. While not all geeks have some weird fascination with space, Star Wars/Trek, and other non-earthly things, most everyone can surely can muster a smirk at the sight of the "Spacebook T-Shirt". Featuring a humerous pun on the popular social networking site, the Spacebook T-Shirt scratches the surface of the inner lives of Storm Troopers -- something that is a very rare sight to say the least. I can't believe that it took this long for someone to conjure up a t-shirt ...
