A Space Invaders arcade mod that stands only 7 inches tall and 3 inches wide might be one of the coolest desktop video gaming gadgets you and I have ever seen. The mini joystick and button were purchased from Digikey.com and integrated into a Game Boy Advanced SP motherboard. Each of the decals / side graphics were found at arcadeartlibrary.com which were photoshopped then printed to fit the tiny form factor.
Since this actually runs GBA game cartiridges, you can actually play any GBA game that you want on it (which are loaded into the back of the unit). But, lets be honest with ourselves here, the Space Invaders Arcade should ONLY place Space Invaders. The build itself apparently took Victor from Australia months to complete, and we thank him for the effort.

Simply charge your bar of periodic chart soap under some light and start ramming it into places that the sun don't shine. Do this enough times and the radioactive effect just might take hold, turn you green and make you a master of the martial arts.

Sick of those crappy 3D glasses you get at the theater that you happily have to give back to the goofy ass collector dude(but honestly, you still feel like stealing them)? Well, Oakley made some new miner savers that should enhance your TRON movie going experience with style. If you are a person who really enjoys 3D movies and has a cool $150 laying around, pick these up and yes, you can use them on other movies as well. Be the cool kid in the movie IMAX theater, maybe?
The SEIL bag, Safe Enjoy Interact Light, is designed to keep your average city bicyclist safe from those pesky cars. It has an array of LEDs built into the back that can display a variety of signals in different colors that immediately tell traffic behind you what you are thinking of doing next.
There is even a built-in accelerometer that senses when you are coming to a stop and displays "STOP" on your back. Other than that, the left and right turn signals are controlled by a device that you can thumb on your handlbar. Very cool. Click on and watch the video of it in action.
Sadly, this is only a prototype, but who knows ! Maybe one day we can all have one. Scotty?
"This is a heavily-modified N76 with custom sounds, graphics, and hardware. It is very much a prototype and obviously in a late Alpha or early Beta stage."
Having a party? Sick and tired of boozo the clown molesting your guests? Well, check out illoom balloons, they freakin light up. Get wasted, totally nude and fill your domicile with these fun power floaty orbs of awesome.
"This ultimate appeal is an asset that opens up new horizons, as Celsius X VI II begins to explore mechanical functions that will revolutionise the world of communications, things never before seen or heard that in the future will become a major sector of the prestige market."
I might have to order a few of these.
