I Can Has Cheezburger – Stroller Pushing Pug

29 06 2009

I wouldn’t trust this pug to push a baby stroller…

But well, maybe he can help with something else. Shopping cart or something? 😛

LightLane

28 06 2009

Dunno how effective LightLane really is to protect bikers from being hit by cars at night, but I guess any extra security measure is valid…

Pretty interesting idea anyways.
With some mods and stuff, might turn into a Laser Harp… 😛

CrazyBuilders – Propeller Powered Skateboard

28 06 2009

If you ever watched A Pup Named Scooby-Doo you probably hate cartoon babyfication, but also probably wondered when someone was going to make a rocket propelled skateboard…

Unfortunately, as Ryan puts it, rocket propellers might be a little too dangerous to be placed on a wooden board that could go flipping around hitting the fuel tank and exploding on thin air. BUT, a fan propelled one is fine too.

CrazyBuilders is run by Ryan Bavetta, ex-MIT student that runs DIY-like projects and “how it works” videos.

VRgameGUN

28 06 2009

The video is kinda weird, but the game gun is just awesome!

It’s actually a toy gun rigged with a LCD screen, a gyration mouse and a game pad.
This is probably a prototype, but looks like an idea interesting enough for a final product eh?

Abandonware – Legend of Zelda (NES)

27 06 2009

Going further back in time, here’s the first Zelda game ever:

I remember back them getting confused about the title and the gender of the main character… isn’t Zelda a female name? But this green leprechaun-like creature looks male in the manual. What the heck?
Anyways, comparing the first 3 Legend of Zelda games, we can see a game that has changed through time.
I already posted Legend of Zelda II: The Adventure of Link as being the black sheep of the collection.
But anyways, I liked this game a lot. It was hard and all, and it started the tradition of Zelda engrish -> “Dodongo Dislikes Smoke” (Zelda I), “I am Error” (Zelda II), but it was fun with tons of screens to navigate, items to find out, and the tons of castle maps with that suspense music.
Dunno what else to say… as I’d have to go more than 10 years back in time to remember, since I only played it when I still had a NES. But yes, like on Zelda 2 and 3, I also played this one ‘till I got all the itens, all hearts and everything else… 😛
