  • Ghostbusters Ecto-1 car looks phenomenal

    In preparation for the release of the new Ghostbusters game this fall, here’s a sweet-looking Ecto-1 car that’s been put together by Vivendi, the game’s developer. The actual car used in the films was sold for a pretty penny at auction, so this newly-built one might just be the next best thing. Hit the jump for a few more photos. Read More

  • That car that Circuit City gutted? They're fixing it, nice!

    I’m the resident customer service curmudgeon around CrunchGear. I’ve worked customer service as both a peon and manager, and I’ve been on the other side, so I know what’s reasonable to expect. As I said a few weeks ago, if Circuit City destroys your car trying to install a stereo, they should fix it completely. Circuit wasn’t doing that, but reports are that… Read More

  • Wow: Bottles, an RC car, and the Super Mario theme

    If you’re reading this from the office and you can’t view YouTube videos, you should consider going home on your lunch break to watch this. I’ve seen some cool shit before, but this is some of the coolest shit that ever shat. Nice work, whoever you are. via Geekologie Read More

  • Tetris – The Movie. Are you ready to BLOCK?


    Finally, the greatest game of all time comes to the silver screen. I’m so ready for this. The sad part is I’d probably watch this movie if it came out — it’s like Robot Jox with blocks. Robot Blox! Watch the trailer here.

    http://www.gametrailers.com/remote_wrap.php?mid=32629 Sega’s upcoming “Iron Man” video game launch will coincide with the theatrical release on May 2 and I’m, well, pretty ecstatic. I haven’t been this excited for a comic book-based movie to come out since “Batman Begins” and I have high hopes for it as I’m sure most of you do too. We… Read More

  • Red One-powered Super 8 telecine system rules you

    [photopress:redsuper8.jpg,full,center] This is rad. Take one Movie Stuff Workprinter XP. Now add a Red One. You now have an ultra-high-def Super 8 telecine system. What does that mean for you non camera geeks? It means it’s a way of transferring analog Super 8 films into perfect, high-rez digital archives. Why anyone would need that kind of quality from Super 8 remains to be seen, but… Read More

  • And they say sports and nerds don't mix

    [photopress:1195833812_SPLASH.jpg,full,center] Denver’s Tim Kaebisch has been using his spare time recently to build a scale replica of Miller Park out of Legos, complete with working retractable roof. It’s a labor of love for Kaebisch, he’s been working on this project in one respect or another for seven years. I used to make X-Wing fighters and Transformers, he builds a… Read More

  • DIY: Electronic Post-It

    I loves me some DIY projects, but a difficulty rating of hard by the folks at PopSci for the electronic Post-It note has me thinking twice about taking on this 7-hour endeavor. Or I could just nut up and do it. Anyone else interested in making one? Build It: The Electronic Post-It Note [PopSci] Read More

  • Power strip with USB ports = Belkin knows the way to my heart

    If ever there were a tiny gadget that could take my breath away, it’s the Mini Surge protector with USB from Belkin. And I thought my Monster Outlet to Go was awesome.

  • Cover up that fugly satellite dish, thank the Dutch

    The Dutch want you to pimp out your satellite dish and I’m inclined to listen. Who doesn’t want a kitten sticker to brighten up that ugly grey dish? Seriously. If kittens aren’t your style then maybe tulips, stars, sunflowers or EU flags are up your alley. They even deliver to the US. Order now! Satellite Dish Sticker Read More

  • Hi-Can canopy: I'd never get out of this bed

    The Italians sure are fashionable. When I was there last year I saw some impeccably dressed individuals doing mundane, normal, every day tasks. So it’s no surprise that the Hi-Can canopy bed was designed by Italian, Edouardo Carlino. This bed does everything you’d want it to do and more. You could run your home from this thing as well as surf the Web, listen to music, watch TV and… Read More

  • The Air Poo: greatest invention of all time

    When John Biggs sees this his head is going to explode. It beats the crap out of that toilet seat he reviewed a few months back. A docking station for your MBA and iPod with a seated heat, multi-touch flusher, and built-in surround sound. Taking a poo has just been taken to the next level. No word on price just yet, but we’ll follow this one very closely. Product Page Read More

  • One year ago today: The Mooninite hoax that shocked the nation

    Let us not forget that it was exactly one year ago today that a couple of innocent marketing pranksters in Boston were confused with dangerous terrorists due to the DIY LED sign you see above. They placed a few all over the city, a nod to Aqua Teen Hunger Force, a type of harmless techno-graffiti, but a type that was considered a bomb threat by the clueless Man. We’d like to take a… Read More

  • Papercraft Bumblebee made of KFC buckets: I want one!

    If you’re in a repressive Communist country and have a little time to kill, what are you going to do? I mean, the Internet’s all censored, TV as well. You need a hobby, and this young man’s is papercraft, the art of sculpting complex and/or beautiful items out of paper and glue. But this guy’s gone to the next level, and we love it. Using nothing but cardboard from… Read More

  • Cut footage from Star Wars

    Maybe you’ve seen this and maybe you haven’t. I know the original trilogy (the new ones were even worse) was comprised of cheesy lines, but whoever that guy is that Luke is talking is like listening to nails on a chalkboard. Yikes. Read More

  • Substitute teacher busted for showing kids porno from his cellphone; jokes write themselves, we take a break

    It’s cool to have porn on your cellphone. More people do it than you’d think, and that’s ok. But listen carefully: it’s not okay to show your porn to young teenagers, especially if you’re a substitute teacher. Okay? Teacher Accused Of Showing Pornographic Picture [KOTV] Read More

  • Active camo Spartan figurines available for pre-order

    I’m not much of a figurine collector for the simple fact that I’m transported back in time to when I was six years old. This is where all the trouble begins because I ruined my brother’s pristine collection of original Star Wars action figures. He had everything and my dumbass went and scattered them across the house or buried them in the backyard. I should be tarred and… Read More

  • Look at the pretty lights

    I don’t think I’ll ever get sick of light art. It’s just about the neatest thing out there in terms of non-traditional mediums of artwork. It also helps that they’re reenacting some Star Wars. So sit back, relax and enjoy the show. Read More
