Digital Thermometer Pan makes for perfect pancakes

Posted in Kitchen by Conner Flynn on November 2nd, 2008

Digital Thermometer Pan makes for perfect pancakesMaking Pancakes is trickier then it seems. If your temperature is too low you’ve got a long wait for that perfect pancake. If the temp is too high, you’re gonna burn them. It’s part instinct and part science. But it helps to have a pan that will tell you the precise temperature. After all, once the guesswork is taken out of the equation, all that’s left to do is make some perfect pancakes and eat.

Getting the temperature just right is the true secret of cooking. This Digital Thermometer Pan shows you the exact temp of the middle of the pan, displayed on a removable readout in the handle. It will cost you $50. Completely worth it for that perfect breakfast. The pan is 7.8 inches in diameter, and we’re hoping it shows up in a wide array of sizes.

Apple iPhone cupcakes are 3G-licious

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on September 16th, 2008

Apple iPhone cupcakes are 3G-liciousWhat can you say about an iPhone that is an amazing feat in creativity and in all likelihood magically delicious at the same time? It’s obviously a set of 12 cupcakes decorated to look like the iPhone. All I can say is that if this amazing treat was sitting in front of me, the decision to eat it or just admire it would fry my geek brain. They are the product of a Cupcake Decorating Championship at Ignite NYC, and they rightly took the first place prize last night. No word on whether creators Danielle and Nick Bilton are going to eat them now or not.

Guitar Hero cake rocks the bakery

Guitar Hero cake rocks the bakery
If you’re a fake guitar aficionado and have rocked out in all possible ways playing Guitar Hero and yet still can’t get enough, check out this cake. While it’s not an Atari cake or a confectionery Millenium Falcon, it’s the latest geek pastry to wash down nerd gullets chased by Mountain Dew. And you just know that whoever ate this thing had stray icing marks on the air guitar string area of their jeans.

Never fear, there’s a detailed explanation available on how to bake/build one for yourself. A Guitar Hero widow made the cake for her boyfriend’s birthday and when he saw it, he must have been in rocker heaven because he proposed.

Millennium Falcon cake is too good to eat

Posted in Star Wars by Conner Flynn on July 16th, 2008

Millennium Falcon cakeWe’ve seen our share of geek cakes, whether you’re talking Star Trek or R2-D2. But the Millennium Falcon cake is the best yet. Probably the best ever. It takes the cake.

It’s super detailed and would leave a trail of sickeningly sweet icing through hyperspace. It was made by Charm City Cakes in Baltimore and some lucky guy who isn’t me received it this weekend for his birthday. I wouldn’t know whether to eat it or get my old action figures out and play. It just needs a blockade of Star Destroyer cakes to outrun and the scene is complete.

Super Mario wedding cake is a work of art

Super Mario wedding cake is a work of art
This has to be the awesomest geek cake ever. It was Flickr’ user M.A.L.’s wedding cake, and it seems to have everything in the Mario world represented nicely. It’s got Toad, Yoshi, Piranha plants, mushrooms, even the Chain Chomp guy. The castle on a planet was inspired from Super Mario Galaxy. The cake was created by Beth from Let Them Eat Cake in Costa Mesa, California.

Why don’t people ever divorce with such style? They should. You’re getting the hell away from each other after all which is cause to celebrate. Marry with a Mario cake and divorce with a Zelda cake, that’s what I say. Or a Tetris cake, that can be thrown at each other.

Star Wars Death Star wedding cake

Star Wars Death Star wedding cake
Once again we see what happens when you combine geekery with the bakery. We told you about the Atari cake, and the R2-D2 cake. Behold the Death Star wedding cake.

I have to say that it takes a special kind of woman to get onboard with the idea of having any kind of geek cake at her wedding. And symbollically, it’s right on target. After all, many guys would consider marriage to be the final run down the Death Star trench as she shoots a pair of lasers down the hole, blowing your space station to hell.

The Atari 2600 cake looks retro delicious

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on February 24th, 2008

Atari 2600 cake
There must be something in the icing air lately. I thought that the R2-D2 cake we showed you last week was the coolest geek cake. But having a special place in my heart for the Atari 2600, I want to dig into this delicious cake made to look like the original Atari console.

What’s next? An NES and SNES cake? I hope so. I’m getting a sugar rush just looking at it in all it’s 8-bit glory. Ironically, the simple Pac-Man decorations along the side are an improvement on how that game looked on this console.

The iMousePad looks like an Apple iPad

Posted in Mouse by Conner Flynn on June 18th, 2010

Mouse pads don’t have to be boring. This one takes its inspiration from the Apple iPad and is called the iMousePad. The iMousePad is designed to look like an Apple iPad. Sadly it’s just a concept created by the guys over at the DarkDesingGroup.

But if it was real, it would sell like hot cakes as every Apple fan would have to have one. Looks like it would also make a good prank since it looks like a real iPad from far away.

Samsung launches five new lenses for the Samsung NX10

Posted in Cameras by Conner Flynn on February 22nd, 2010

Remember the Samsung NX10? It’s a hybrid DSLR using a new format created by Samsung which is slightly bigger than the Micro Four Thirds format and smaller than the DSLR format. Samsung has just announced five news lenses for the NX10, which includes an 18-55mm f3.5-56 lens, a 20mm f2.8 pancake lens, a 60mm f2.7 macro lens, a 20-50mm f3.5-56 lens and an 18-200m OIS f3.5-63 lens.

The new lenses are smaller than standard DSLR lenses since the NX10 doesn’t have any mirrors inside.

Gingerbread Star Trek Enterprise

Posted in Sci-Fi by Conner Flynn on December 21st, 2009

Tis the season for all manner of geeky desserts. We’ve seen our share around here, whether they be Star Wars or Star Trek. All are delicious if not nutritious.

Here we have the Star Trek Enterprise made of gingerbread. Apparently it lacks the necessary propulsion to keep it upright and so is kept afloat by several glasses beneath. I would love to take the first bite and cause a hull breach.

R2-D2 case mod is exactly the droid you’re looking for

Posted in Star Wars by Conner Flynn on March 5th, 2008

R2-D2 case mod
This is probably the coolest case mod I’ve ever seen. Surprisingly, it beats the R2-D2 cake for R2 related geek stuff I want. There doesn’t seem to be any real information about how the guy made it or what he used, but I’m assuming he is part Jawa and just scavenged parts as he roamed across the desert, bartering with moisture farmers.

There’s a ton of nice attention to detail and I don’t see any restraining bolt, so maybe this thing can roam around his house. Of course, if you had an R2 unit, you would need to childproof all the electrical outlets, so he isn’t having sex with them while you’re at work. I bet he isn’t even lonely without C-3PO at all. Goldenrod is a prissy droid, with an overactive mouth. Where as R2 is a true geek’s droid companion.
