How come nobody ever came up with this before? Considering its unique design and brainy challenge (literally and artistically), it would take quite a smarty-pants person to figure it out. Or just someone who can memorize patterns fast.
It doesn’t matter if you blame Cheetos, McDonalds, or first person shooters. The fact remains there are a lot of overweight kids these days whose more or less inactive lifestyles sets them up for heart disease in the future. So how to keep the kiddies at least mildly interested in exercise? Why, plop down some cash for a GeoPalz pedometer.
One of the coolest franchises that Hasbro has is Transformers. Hasbro launched Transformers back when I was a kid and I spent lots of time trying to convert the bots to and from robot guise. Hasbro has announced a new toy line this week called KRE-O that is sort of like Lego and comes in Transformers character kits.
It has been a while since we talked about the infamous mix of Mentos and Diet Coke and the geeky fun that can be had with the two food items. Last we talked about the stuff was last summer when the rocket sled/bike powered by the concoction turned up. Today we have a new kit from EepsyBird.com to look at.
As the picture below indicates, this golf ball launcher is attached to the end of a rifle and fired. To launch a golf ball (which is lethal at high speed), just chamber a blank round, take aim, and squeeze. Bam! It’s effective up to 200 yards.
Imagine a ringing, screaming, maddening alarm clock tearing your consciousness from the warm embrace of dreamland. It’s really annoying, right? Rather than grope or flail around as you reach for the offending clock with eyes closed, pull out a laser pistol and blast it.
I don’t think that any of use ever get over the thrill we get from playing with new toys. When we are young, it might be Hot Wheels cars and Barbie dolls. When we are older, we just move to gadgets and real cars. If you are a big fan of Android OS devices some cool new figurines have surfaced that are much cooler to collect than clowns.
If your a fan of the Team Fortress 2 game or know someone who is, these detailed artistic sculptures created out of the finest plastic are now available for fans worldwide, with the soldier now joining the already created Heavy which has already sold out.
The new soldier figure is now up for pre-order and will be made in limited runs, a limited run of 300 with an inter-switchable Direct Hit accessory and a run of 750 without will ship in Q3 2011
Most you children enjoy nothing more than creating things out of old packaging boxes, tubes and empty containers from household waste. Mine sometimes get more enjoyment from a cardboard than the actual product inside.
Makedo has been designed to help make it even more fun by providing connectors to join the packaging together safely and easily. Watch the video after the break to see the new Makedo kit in action.
Ever heard of Xubor? Nope, Xubor isn’t an alien. Xubor is a guy from Germany who spends hours and hours constructing Lego guns. We’re not talking about Lego blocks shaped like guns, but real projectile firing (non-lethal) builds.
The company formerly known as Surfango (they’re now called Jetbuster) have unveiled the newest beast to emerge from their Dusseldorf HQ. The Jetrider XL can reach speeds of up to 25mph thanks to a tough 9.5hp engine. It’s comfy too.
But keep in mind you’ll be paying for the craftsmanship, which is top notch even for a ‘mere’ replica.
The wonderful labor of love pictured bellow will be released in March thanks to online retailer Entertainment Earth. It won’t be cheap though and will set the eager Dead Space fan back $219. But if you’re such a humongous Dead Space fan in the first place, no price is too great for this baby.
