    DIY: Robot takes 360 degree photos

    I’m not much of a DIYer, but sometimes things come up that just make me want to break out the toolbox and start doing some damage. This is such a time, folks. I’m obsessed with photography lately, so this would be a fun project for me. At least, I think it would be. Who doesn’t want to take 360-degree shots? You can totally make the other photogs look like amateurs when you whip… Read More

  • Jango: Social radio done right

    Jango: Social radio done right

    Moving to NYC revived my faith in music as I often frequented popular venues like the Bowery Ballroom, Irving Plaza, Pianos and other hotbeds for new music. I haven’t been to a show in quite some time, which has resulted in me listening to the same albums I’ve been listening to for the last four months. It really sucks because music helps me get through an otherwise monotonous and… Read More

  • Star Wars + Legos + Watches = Awesome

    Star Wars + Legos + Watches = Awesome

    We like watches. We like Star Wars. We like Legos. So, naturally, we’re all about these Star Wars Lego Watches, which are just what they sound like. They come in parts, and you get to pick and choose to personalize it, because that’s the kind of nerd you are. Vader, Yoda, Luke and a random Clonetrooper are all four present. For real fun, get all four and combine them to really piss off… Read More

  • Crazy headphones aren't headphones at all

    Crazy headphones aren't headphones at all

    The Sony PFR-V1′s are actually two mini speakers which are said to mimic an extravagant audio setup. There’s a whole bunch of tech-specs which supposedly justify the $540 price but whatevs, at the end of the day these kinda ruin the premise of headphones. Last we checked headphones were meant for private listening. Not to mention you’ll look like a total douche rocking these on… Read More

  • Hate Your Boss?

    Hate Your Boss?

    What started off as a HS prank to piss off my English teacher, Miss Hunt, has spilled over into my cubicle life, rather, did spill over into my cubicle life. But I was using paper clips, pens and rubber bands to piss off co-workers and the occasional paper football. Office workers really do have a full arsenal of weapons at their disposable if they use a bit of creativity. But not everyone is as… Read More

  • Boynq Alibi, Batteries Not Included Ring A Bell?

    Boynq Alibi, Batteries Not Included Ring A Bell?

    The moment I laid eyes on the Boynq Alibi it immediately triggered happy memories from my childhood. Before I go off on another tangent like I usually do, I’ll give the deets on the Alibi. It’s an all-in-one device that clears up even more room on your desk than the Brando USB Hub. The Alibi combines a Web cam, speakers and microphone into a stylish and modern looking thingamabob.

  • iPhone vs. Wiimote vs. Baby: Who Will Reign Supreme?

    iPhone vs. Wiimote vs. Baby: Who Will Reign Supreme?

    Kottke has an excellent comparison on who/what has the most sensitive built-in accelerometer. The contenders are the Apple iPhone, Nintendo Wiimote and Kottke’s newborn son, Ollie. Awww. Cute. Barf. If you’ve manhandled the iPhone then you know the accelerometer needs to be coddled or you’ll be stuck in portrait hell or vice versa for at least 5 seconds. Am I wrong? You know… Read More

    Awesome Pair Of Night Lights

    Hey, your kid needs gadget advice too! Check out these awesome nightlights from Fred Flare. For $12 you get a pair of lights that will make any kid more excited than Pixi Stix. One bulb glows purple and has plasma rays like those balls you see at Spencer’s Gifts. Very exciting. The other bulb resembles a wacky hairdo and is made from a blue light and fiber-optic cables. It also looks like… Read More

  • Shakespearean Insult Gum: Bubblegum and Old Timey Insults

    Shakespearean Insult Gum: Bubblegum and Old Timey Insults

    Finally, something I’d actually buy, in addition to this rockin’ book: Shakespearean Insult Gum. Reading some of the bard’s works, you’ll notice that he peppers each play with some rather raunchy insults, insults that I love repeating to my friends like a complete and lonely loser. $3 gets you a seven-book case, each with two gum balls. One insult, and the resulting black… Read More

    Gears Of War Get Action Figured

    Many of you probably played with GI Joes and Transformers and whatever popular action figures were out at the time, so you’ll understand my dismay at the lack of quality action figures out in the market at the moment. They’re cheapo, lack the pizzazz of yesteryear or they’re just flat out too complicated to play with. The new Transformers are notorious for that. But a new wave is… Read More

  • One Of The Best Video Game Endings Ever

    Joel posted some hotness over at Dethroner today, showcasing the best and worst of video game endings. This Neo Contra ending above is chock full o’ blood and features a samurai guy killing a bunch of people, cutting the world in half, then sailing almost-naked through space with another dude holding on to his shit. It’s epic. The good comes with the bad though. Hit the jump for the… Read More

    Huge Flask Holds More Booze than Lohan (Pre-Rehab)

    The editors hate it when we have one paragraph posts, but this photograph of the product I can’t even attempt to write about says far more than I could here, short of I totally want one today. I guess there’s a joke somewhere in a hip flask of this size that would have Louie Anderson in the punchline, but I won’t be making that joke here today, as I’m too full of lust for… Read More

  • Contra 4 Poster Appears In Magazine

    Contra 4 Poster Appears In Magazine

    I’m pretty sure there are more people reading Cat Anus Weekly than Nintendo Power, though I could be wrong on that one. However, this month’s Power revealed an awesome, gigantic Contra 4 poster complete with Bill and Lance ready to kick some mutant ass. However, Konami’s penchant for buff dudes from 1980s films is seriously getting out of control. Look at the dude on the bottom… Read More

  • McFarlane Set To Produce Halo 3 Toys

    McFarlane Set To Produce Halo 3 Toys

    The recent announcement of Halo 3 themed accessories for the Xbox 360 sent fanboys into fits of ecstasy, but this just might send them over the edge. Coming to stores in the Spring of 2008 will be five characters along with three vehicles from the Halo series. Leading the charge will be Master Chief and joining him will be Brute Chieftain, Cortana, Jackal Sniper and a 2-pack of Grunts. The… Read More

  • Fun Alert: Pocket Watch Keychain Concept

    Fun Alert: Pocket Watch Keychain Concept

    The Pocket Watch keychain is two hip and groovy gadgets in one. It’s part keychain and part pocket watch, united together in some Volton-like cacophony of fun. The cube, which measures just 20mm square, displays the time when the cord is yanked. The underlying principle for it is that you need keys to get somewhere, so why not get there on time? Clearly many hours of research went into… Read More

  • Greetings from SpaceX

    Greetings from SpaceX

    It’s a spaceship! So I’m about to fly up to San Jose on some super secret business, but before I do I wanted to send you all a little greeting from the Los Angeles hangar of the Space Exploration Technologies Corporation. We last covered SpaceX back in March when it launched the Falcon 1 from its launch facility in the Marshall Islands. Behind me is the latest rocket being developed by… Read More

  • X-Ray Business Cards

    X-Ray Business Cards

    File this under “coolest thing ever.” It just arrived in via email and I’m wondering where I can order a set. Note that this is the card of a “Debt Recovery Agent” and that the X-Ray depicts a thoroughly broken finger. Quite appropriate. I’d like to have my next set of cards made like this. Maybe I could show an image of a wrist with carpal tunnel syndrome. Read More
