Big Bad Wolf Nikes

Big Bad Wolf Nikes

We’re really digging these Big Bad Wolf Nike Dunks by YoaKustoms; they remind us of the Spitfires of WW2 with a sick grey-toned camo design and extra ears on the heel tab.

Video: Metamorphosis

Video: Metamorphosis

The amazing Metamorphosis is the work of Glenn Marshall, who used Processing.org, an open source animation and interaction language. It’s set to music by Scottish group Boards of Canada.

Concept: BRIX

Concept: BRIX

Microsoft’s Zune may let you share songs, but this BRIX concept by Seokwon Hong proposes sharing multiple BRIXs to form an impromptu viewscreen; family plan, anyone?

Saab 9-X Air BioHybrid

A convertible version of Saab’s 9-X concept, the Air BioHybrid features a flat-folding canopy top; it’s powered by a 1.4L Saab BioPower engine that runs on 100 percent ethanol.

Lego Rebel Attack

Lego Rebel Attack

We’re having a hard time digesting just how awesome Tim G.’s hectic Lego Rebel Attack diorama is, from a damaged X-Wing trailing smoke to a cameo by Boba Fett; the full gallery is here.

Video: DaScratch

Video: DaScratch

Stanton’s DaScratch is an innovative controller for DJs that uses a touch interface; three modes (Slider, Circle and Button) allow you to get a lot done in a relatively small device.

Short Film: Goobees

Short Film: Goobees

Created by Texas A&M Viz Lab grad students, Goobees is like Braveheart meets Willy Wonka. Epic win: gumdrops impaled with candy canes, cued to music a-la Spartacus.

Ninjas Tee

Ninjas Tee

Sensing an imbalance in The Force after Friday’s Pirate invasion, Vintage Vantage has released the Strictly For My Ninjas tees for those who prefer nunchakus over cutlasses.

Free: Goo

Free: Goo

Goo is like Katamari in 2D with better graphics; although more a tech demo than a game, it’s pretty fun. It recently won Best Threaded Game at the Intel Game Demo Contest.

Crappy Cat

Crappy Cat

We really didn’t get Jamungo’s antisocial Crappy Cat until we saw his interactive Flash game. The 9″ vinyl yuppie cat sports a cardigan, an eyepatch, a can of beer and a six pack ring.

OneLessDesk

OneLessDesk

Heckler Design’s OneLessDesk is actually two desks in one; a lower deck can serve as a keyboard tray or secondary desk, but slides away under the upper deck when not in use.

Canon SD880

Canon SD880

Canon’s SD880 IS is an update to their SD870; with 10 MP it’s not quite as powerful as the SD990, but its larger 3″ LCD and lower price point ensure this will be a top seller for Canon.

Zelda with Tesla Coils

Zelda with Tesla Coils

Like Ruben’s Tube, these musical Tesla coils by Steve Ward and Jeff Larson are designed to be seen and heard. Above: listen to them play the Zelda theme song. Even crazier: Lightsabers.

2B Radio

2B Radio

Jonas Damon’s 2B Radio is a retro minimalist’s dream come true, with a matte black case and three vacuum tubes in place of transistors. It’ll hook up to your iPod or MP3 player, too.

Toshiba NB100

Toshiba NB100

Only available in the UK at the moment, Toshiba’s NB100 netbook is one of the nicer ones we’ve seen. Otherwise, it’s pretty run of the mill: 1.6 GHz Atom, 1 GB RAM and an 8.9″ screen.

Free: Blast Passage

Free: Blast Passage

Warning: you may waste an incessant amount of time on Blast Passage. This Flash freebie remixes Bomberman and Gauntlet; even multiplayer is old school: four players, one keyboard.

Transformers Papercraft

Transformers Papercraft

This Transformers papercraft model of Bumblebee makes our paper football look like such weak sauce: it’s made with food cartons and KFC bucket lids and actually articulates.

Red Alert 3 Dance Party

Red Alert 3 Dance Party

Just when we didn’t think Red Alert 3 could get any campier, they release this remix trailer, with George Takei saying “‘All your base…” and Jenny McCarthy making very suggestive noises.

Book: Eden

Book: Eden

We’re chomping at the brain to read Tom Mochinski’s Eden; it’s a zombie story which focuses on a band of survivors holding out in a fortified compound in Queens, New York.

Pi Be Rational Tee

Pi Be Rational Tee

Math nerds the world over will love the Pi Be Rational t-shirt, which gets right to the decimal point. Though, like many of us, the negative square root is real; he’s just complex, too.

Freedom Grill FG-900

Freedom Grill FG-900

With football season in full-swing, the Freedom Grill FG-900 is the perfect way to “cook” things off–this tow-behind trailer sports six burners with 99,000 BTU and two insulated storage bins.

Trailer: Lakeview Terrace

Trailer: Lakeview Terrace

Many of us have had crazy neighbors, but there’s no topping a deranged Samuel L. Jackson; set to the backdrop of a California wildfire, Lakeview Terrace is in theaters now.

BEO Aston Martin Speakers

Bang & Olufsen’s saucer-shaped speakers (link: BeoLab 5) are now available in the Aston Martin DBS and DB9; each car will have two of these tweeters which retract when not in use.

Keith Thompson’s Art

Keith Thompson’s Art

Keith Thompson is one of our favorite sci-fi/fantasy artists; not only is his work awesome, but he takes the time to write background stories. Spend an hour here; we sure did.

Software: Video Copilot

Canon G10
