Book: Force Unleashed

Book: Force Unleashed

We were surprised to learn that Star Wars: The Force Unleashed made it onto last week’s The New York Times’ bestseller list. No, not the game — the hardcover book!

Where Are They Now? Tee

Where Are They Now? Tee

Oh Threepio, how far you’ve fallen: this tee featuring C-3PO and R2D2 belongs on the classic VH1 show. Printed on a charcoal gray tee; we have a bad good feeling about this…

Satellite Tee

Satellite Tee

Kind of like an old MTV video with tye dye thrown in, this Satellite t-shirt by Sentimental Soy Cheese (yes, that’s really their name) is a cool all-over piece that’s definitely different.

This Space Invaders-themed keyboard has uber geek written all over it; actually called ElectroJoe’s Bendiboard, they’re flexible, water resistant and come in black or white.

Saucerbot Lightpainting

Saucerbot Lightpainting

We’re totally digging these fantastic lightpainting photos by artist Andy Hill, who makes and sells retro sci-fi Saucerbots from LED lights, leftover CDs, DVDs and hard drive platters.

ExoMars Rover

ExoMars Rover

The ESA continues to handily best NASA in terms of style with its ExoMars Rover, which has more bling than an Escalade at a Lakers game. It’ll arrive at the Red Planet in 2014.

Tokyoflash Rogue Watch

The blogosphere is abuzz about Tokyoflash’s Rogue watch, which features a green Matrix meets Mass Effect LED display and a sleek silver or black stainless steel strap.

GOCE Satellite

GOCE Satellite

Real space vehicles generally pale next to their sci-fi counterparts. The ESA’s Ocean Circulation Explorer satellite (or GOCE) bucks the trend; hell, this baby comes with wings!

Warrior Alien Vinyl

This Warrior Alien (from the movie Aliens) will be released by Medicom Toys this November. The vinyl figure are a little more cartoony but still plenty menacing: we loves it.

Sci-Fi Cosplay Gallery

Sci-Fi Cosplay Gallery

Juxtaposition has never been quite as fun or geeky as these photos of various Star Trek and Star Wars fans. They’re photographed by Steve Schofield; PS: there’s a Wookie in the kitchen.

Trailer: Jumpgate Evolution

Trailer: Jumpgate Evolution

Jumpgate Evolution’s trailer has a creepy middle eastern soundtrack and frenetic drumbeats that are ripped right from Battlestar Galactica, but we’re still hot for this MMO due out in 2009.

Trailer: Babylon A.D.

Trailer: Babylon A.D.

Babylon A.D.’s trailer doesn’t reveal much plot-wise, but what we do see has us sold: stealth bombers, Russian submarines, cyborg implants, psionic combat and Michelle Yeoh kicking butt.

Book: Cosmic Motors

It’s tough not to like Christian Lorenz’s sci-fi and fantasy-themed art. The scenes are imaginative, colorful, and often thought provoking. Gallery Nucleus carries several of his prints.

Concept Ships Blog

Concept Ships Blog

Concept Ships is stuffed to the brim with spaceship and experimental aircraft art. Be warned: if you have even the slightest interest in future tech, you’ll easily waste hours here.

Steampunk Robots

Steampunk Robots

We’re personally getting tired of the Steampunk genre, but we still love these robot models by The Builder’s Studio. They look metallic, but these retro tech creations are made out of wood.
