Sweating Robot

31 01 2009

A robot that runs and sweats… apparently to help make better sports clothing for the winter (which will dry faster)

Sweating is weird enough, but I guess those plugs connecting to it’s face wins the prize. 😛

Elite Force: Unit 77 (DS)

31 01 2009

Interesting game for the Nintendo DS

From the source post: “Set to hit the Nintendo DS next month, Elite Forces: Unit 77 is a game that combines action and strategy. Letting players control four characters, each with special abilities that need to be used in conjunction with the other members.”

Motion Controlled MP3 Player

31 01 2009

Kinda useless, but cool anyways:

From HackedGadgets, the mod was made by Elm-chan… just in case you suddenly feel the urge to do something like that, check Elm-chan’s Motion Controlled MP3 Player page… and good luck with that.

Aqua Rain

31 01 2009

If you know something about japanese culture, you probably know that baths in Japan are not only a place to clean yourself, but also a place to relax.

Aqua Rain is a gadget that makes a water fountain and some lightworks to make baths even more enjoyable.
(insert dirty jokes here)
While a product like that would only make a mess in western bathrooms, I can see how that would be awesome in either japanese public bath houses (sento), or onsens.

The Legend of Princess

31 01 2009

What Legend of Zelda 2 would look like if it was more action packed and made by some Independent Game developer?

Little bit different huh? 😛
This Indie version is available free for download directly using this link or at Konjak’s website.

If you like Independent Games and you have the feeling you already saw a game that looked like The Legend of Princess, maybe it was the Noitu Love series, which Konjak is also the author. Awesome games!

Hubless Chopper

31 01 2009

I’m not much into motorbikes and choppers, but this one was too good to ignore:

Also known as The Hubless Monster, creates the weird illusion as if it was gliding on the street or something!
I’d like to have one of those… and then I’d buy a hamster wheel and put it right in the middle of those tires for increased effect!
Of course, as long as the hamster doesn’t get hurt… 😛

Abandonware – Zelda II: The Adventure of Link (NES)

30 01 2009

The second game from the Zelda series…

…which many fans of the series didn’t quite like.
But personally, I loved this game. I had the golden catridge, and though the game was very different from almost any other game of the series, and it was hard as hell, I just loved it!
The 8-bit music always makes me kinda nostalgic… ;_;

Hamster Wheel

30 01 2009

Watch them go!

LOL, awesome!
Oh, before someone asks, the hamsters won’t get hurt from only that… probably just a little dizzy, tired, and I may risk saying they’re also having lots of fun. xD

Marching Otaku

30 01 2009

Watch out! This might be a little scary for non-otakus! xD

I present you Otakus, marching into one of the most famous otaku events in Japan, the Comic Market held in Tokyo Big Sight!
Some of them are running because Comic Market is one big event where, among other things, limited edition of several stuff is sold. Some of those limited items (think manga, doujinshi, figures and other otaku stuff) are sold out in the first few minutes of the event, so you have to be real quick.

Anyways, I’ve been planning to make more posts about the otaku culture and stuff… but it’s kinda hard to deal with this many things at once, so be patient!

Internet Dog Feeder

30 01 2009

The project might look a little crude, but Tyler says he made it in under 1 hour… so it’s pretty awesome!

With some improvements, you could check on your dog/cat/pet and feed it when you’re not home.
