British Schoolgirl Gets Cyborg Hand (Video)

Chloe Holmes lost several fingers after a nasty bout of chicken pox in her infancy. We’re not sure which hand was affected (apparently both, but judging by the pic it’s the left that’s in worse shape). Until the age of 15, she had to make do with dull prosthetic replacements. Thanks to a sizable financial investment, Chloe has a new fully functional hand. After spending 38,000 quid on a bionic hand, Chloe can now consider herself a cyborg.

Klingon Themed Monopoly Out Soon (Video)

‘Soon’ as in pre-orders go live come November. In retrospect, it was inevitable. The intergalactic warrior race have now been given their own Monopoly game. Not sure if you have to speak Klingon when playing Monopoly Klingon, but the promotional literature is awesome. Detailed replicas and an ‘authentic’ chancellors cane are just a few of the juicy items locked within each set.

This Is Called The n.a.p.

After staring at it for the better part of half an hour, we still have no idea what to call it. A couch or a bed couch? Never mind. The n.a.p. comes with a LED reading light and enough space for printed material–even a cup of coffee. It does look cumbersome, however.

Elder Scrolls V Skyrim DLC Timed Xbox 360 Exclusive

PS3 owners can at least be thankful that the whole game isn’t a timed 360 exclusive for more than a year, like the last Elder Scrolls game.
