Better Than the Truck? Retro Game Console Transformers

Retro Game Console Transformers

Everyone has seen Optimus Prime transform into a truck and back again, but have you ever seen him transform into a Playstation 1 and vice versa? Thanks to toymaker Takara Tomy, you will. He transformed a Playstation 1 and a Genesis into two of the most recognizable characters in the franchise, Optimus Prime and Megatron, respectively, and it’s amazing how all of the parts just fall into place.

I doubt you’ll be able to play games on the video game consoles like normal, but then again, you’ve got your PS 3 for that. Hit the break to check out more shots of the transforming consoles.Continue Reading

Prehistoric Cycling: Homemade Raptor Three-Wheeler

Raptor Bicycle

Dinosaurs may be extinct, but they will live on forever in the imaginations of folks like you, me, and Norwegian artist Markus Moestue. His latest creation is this raptor three-wheel bike that makes it look like the cyclist is riding on the raptor. It’s bulkier than the average bike, that’s for sure, but its awesomeness more than makes up for it.

To support the extra weight, Markus added another wheel on the front, because dinosaur’s are anything but light, you know. Even fake ones. Check out more shots of the raptor bike after the break.

Ahoy, Matey: Peg Leg Pirate Chopsticks

Peg Leg Pirate Chopsticks

 

It’s frustrating to use chopsticks when you haven’t gotten the hang of it. It’s worse when you’re doing so on an empty (or close-to-empty) stomach. But you’re not alone. The pirate at the end of these uber adorable chopsticks echoes your sentiments with his comically pained expression, and he wants to help you.

With his mere presence, he turns the chopsticks into sort-of clips that makes picking up food easier. They’re great if you’re just starting to learn to use chopsticks.

The Peg Leg Pirate Chopsticks are available online for about $6.

Stumble Upon

There’s StumbleUpon on the world wide web to help you stumble upon sites, articles, and blogs that you might find interesting.

Beyond Awesome: Roller Coaster Planet Through the Lens of Six GoPro Cameras

To say that the things you can do with a GoPro is limitless is no exaggeration. It’s the world’s most versatile camera, used by amateurs, hobbyists, professionals, and everyone else in between. In case you’ve been living under a rock and have no idea what a GoPro is, well, it’s a waterproof and shockproof HD video camera that’s compact and comes with a wide variety of mounts for added versatility.

The clip above, dubbed as LittlePlanet RollerCoaster, is an example of the awesomeness that you can achieve with the GoPro–well, six of them, actually, and video editing software VideoStitch. Mounted on strategic areas, the resulting video turns the roller coaster into its very own planet, taking you along on a very scenic and exhilarating ride. If this doesn’t inspire you to go out there and shoot something artistic, then I don’t know what will.

With the flick of a switch, the chandelier will emit a colorful yet subtle glow.

If you think about it, you actually get the best of both worlds with the chandelier: you get a gorgeous assortment of gummy bears–minus the ants!Continue Reading
