DeepCool’s New Case Looks Like That Star Wars Ship


It’s quite rare that we’ll discuss straight PC hardware on OhGizmo!, simply because there’s not a whole lot of actually interesting innovation in the field. It’s all about marginal increases in miniaturization, speed, or some other interesting-to-some-but-not-us metric. But DeepCool’s TriStellar S PC case, while not technically innovative, does stand out from the crop. For one, it looks like the Evil Emperor’s private shuttle from Return of the Jedi. And despite the creative chassis, functionality hasn’t been sacrificed:

It is split into three separate compartments that can accommodate mini-ITX motherboards, a 120 mm liquid cooler, full-length graphics cards and power supplies, an optical drive and two 3.5-inch drives.

The TriStellar S case is a limited edition model, with only 50 being sold worldwide. And it costs a whopping $599! That’s the budget some people put down on a whole PC build, but hey, when you’ve got the disposable income, luxuries can be afforded. That said, this particular case is almost identical to the TriStellar (no ‘S’), which is $399 itself; DeepCool simply added a window to see the garphics’ compartment, some lights, and Bill Owen’s signature on the side (with whom this was apparently co-designed). If you’re on the slightly more mature side of custom PC-building (because, let’s face it, you’re still considering the purchase of a PC case that looks like a Star Wars ship), you might want to save yourself the $200.

This Star Wars TIE Fighter Watch Costs $28,500


That’s a lot of dollars to spend on a timepiece, but then again, some people really do have too much money. They might even be delighted to splurge on the Darth Vader/TIE Fighter wristwatch, which is made by Devon, and is limited to 1,500 pieces. Aside from the Star Wars aesthetic, it’s got a bunch of features that presumably make sense to the discerning watch enthusiast. Here they are:

– 16L stainless steel
– True black diamond-like coating
– Scratch-resistant polycarbonate lens with bulletproof durability
– Numbered 1-500 on back plate
– Four interwoven 2-micron thin nylon time belts
– Lubricant-free ruby bearings
– Four micro-step motors
– Multiple high-tech optical recognition cells
– Temperature-compensated crystal
– Onboard microprocessor
– 313 electrical contacts
– Lithium-polymer rechargeable cell
– Powered for two weeks on one charge
– Recharge wirelessly through inductive charging tower

So yeah, sure, it costs as much as a new car, but you should know it comes with a complimentary pair of TIE Fighter cufflinks, so… that’s a deal, right? You can pre-order it right now with a $2,500 down payment, but there’s no mention of how long you’ll have to wait to get it, exactly.

Star Wars Darth Vader Metal Can Cooler


Another day, another Star Wars merch; the appetite for this stuff nowadays is seemingly bottomless. The Star Wars Darth Vader Metal Can Cooler is basically a fancy koozie. It’ll keep your hands warm, and your beer cold, and even features a hole in the bottom to prevent a vacuum from forming when you remove your beer, and for water condensate to drink so it doesn’t make a mess.

– Darth Vader Metal Can Cooler
– Officially-licensed Star Wars merchandise
– A ThinkGeek creation
– Keeps your drink cold like Hoth and your hand warm like Tatooine
– Rubber inner sleeve hugs a standard 12 oz. can perfectly (or a stubby)
– Hole in bottom prevents vacuum and allows condensate to drain
– Materials: Metal exterior, rubber interior

This isn’t one of those life-changing products, but for any Star Wars aficionado, it’s an inexpensive way to declare your love and allegiance to the Dark Side.

The Millennium Falcon Bed Costs An Arm, Looks Badass


The Star Wars craze continues unabated, and the latest product we’ve stumbled across is this Millennium Falcon bed for kids. It’s being sold by Pottery Barn, and unlike the cheaper stuff at Ikea, is made from actual wood and not particle board. Its multi-layer finish is hand-painted, and the slat-roll foundation is designed for use with or without a box spring. It’s for kids, so if you’re thinking of getting this for yourself, you should know its dimensions: 45.5″ wide x 108.25″ long x 45.5″ high. Regardless of who this is for, this prospective buyer will need to have deep pockets since the thing costs $4,000.

Chewbacca Fur Crocs? Yes, They Exist


In a short while, everything will be Star Wars merchandise. Star Wars tacos? Probably. Star Wars toilet paper? I bet that already exists. I mean, if someone somewhere thought it would be a good idea to make fur-lined Chewbacca Crocs, then what’s not off limits? They come in men and women’s sizes up to 13 and 12 respectively, and each one includes a permanently attached Chewbacca™ badge, and the bottom band matches Chewbacca’s belt. If you’re going to wear the abomination that are Crocs, well, we suppose you might as well do it while displaying your love for Star Wars, which only partly redeems your questionable taste. They’re $60.

Star Wars Beer Steins


The only respectable way to drink a beer is either straight from the can, or in a beer stein. There’s no shortage of these on the market, with some more creative variations like the Das Can In Stein that turns your cans into steins. The collection we’re looking at today, however, takes the cake in terms of geek appeal. The Star War Steins feature Boba Fett, Darth Vader, or R2-D2 and are made out of solid ceramic. The hinged lid uses a legit pewter thumb lift to reveal your frosty drink inside, while each will hold 22 ounces of liquid. These are heavy, 2 lbs. steins, so it’s no toy. The price is also reflective of this, since they’ll set you back a hefty $49.99.

3D Printed Stormtrooper Foosball Heads


We’ve heard it a million times: “I have a 3D printer, but I have no idea what cool stuff to print!” Well, guys, here’s a fun project. If you have a foosball table, YouMagine member Excite created a set of Stormtrooper heads that you can use to replace the ones currently on your table, by simply snapping them over the standard ones. Of course, there are limitations: it’ll only work if you have a Sportcraft table, plus it’ll upset the balance of the players which some more serious aficionados might dislike. But if you’re really looking to spice up your table, the files are available for download on the YouMagine website.

This Is The Purse You’ve Been Looking For


Yes, the endless stream of cliche headlines continues. I mean, what else would you have put there? Because hey, you are looking at a purse that’s fashioned after everyone’s favourite droid, R2-D2. And not only does it look amazing and loudly proclaim your love for all this Star Wars, this purse has got some features too!

– Star Wars R2-D2 Blue/White/Silver Patent Dome Bag
– Officially-licensed Star Wars merchandise
– Double-zipper closure
– 2 interior pouches (1 with a zipper closure)
– Metal feet on bottom to prevent wear and tear
– Materials: Simulated leather
– Care Instructions: Spot clean with a damp cloth and mild detergent
– Imported
– Exterior Dimensions: 9 1/2″ wide x 8″ tall x 5″ deep
– Interior Dimensions: 9″ wide x 7 1/2″ tall x 1-4 1/2″ deep (gets smaller toward the top of the bag)

And the best part about ThinkGeek merchandise is that it’s rarely overpriced. This applies to this bag too, as you’re being asked $60, which seems more than reasonable to us.
