Antler Headphones will get you shot in the woods

Posted in Headphones by Conner Flynn on February 14th, 2009

Antler Headphones will get you shot in the woodsHere’s a great redneck way to listen to your favorite tunes. Preferably outdoors, where you aren’t poking holes in the wall. But if you have to sit in the woods while rocking out, be careful that some hunter doesn’t take a shot at you, otherwise you and your headphones will end up on his trophy wall looking like the lovechild of Bambi and Elton John.

More likely you’ll just wear these around town at night and it will lead to reports of strange sightings of a new man-beast with antlers.

iPods turned into iPod speakers

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on January 1st, 2009

iPods turned into iPod speakersCheck out this pair of iPods that have been turned into iPod speakers. The original iPod scroll wheels were removed and replaced with a pair of speakers. This particular DIY project is a bit expensive at around $100 (he needed to replace both the front and back panels since the old ones had too many scratches to count), although I don’t see why a smart shopper couldn’t do it for a bit less.

IPod speakers for an iPod. Makes sense. Let’s not go crazy though. We don’t need to see Zune speakers for Zunes and iPhone speakers for your iPhone. I’m just kidding. We love any and all clever mods, even when they get a bit redundant.

Two brothers choke and stab one another over Playstation 2

Posted in PS2 by Conner Flynn on December 23rd, 2008

Two brothers choke and stab one another over Playstation 2Two brothers living in Waukesha reportedly choked, cut and stabbed each other when they fought over a Playstation 2 video game controller. Waukesha Police are recommending that charges be brought against both brothers who acted out of violent anger. When family members are freakin’ stabbed by other family members over video games, it reminds us all that despite our various awesome human achievements, there are still some turds floating around in the human gene pool just waiting to be flushed. This is exactly the kind of thing that gets government all up in our gaming bidness, when parenting could have avoided it all, by raising level-headed humans instead of ignorant savages who choke and stab, because they couldn’t get back into their fantasy world fast enough.

The incident took place on Sunday at a home on Whiterock Avenue where the two brothers got into an argument over whose turn it was to play the video game. The fighting went from yelling to one of the brothers choking the other. Apparently, the brother who was being choked pulled out a knife and cut the hands of the choker, after which the kid doing the choking took the knife and stabbed his brother and then fled the scene. The brother who ran then walked to the hospital and suffered from severely frostbitten fingers.

$400K Cabestan Winch Tourbillion Watch has a chain drive

Cabestan Winch Tourbillion Watch has a chain driveSpending a few grand on a watch is ridiculous. Spending $400K takes it to a whole other crazy level. $400K is what the Cabestan Winch Tourbillion watch will cost you. From afar it sort of resembles a weird fishing rod reel, but up close, you can see the amazing workmanship.

We’re talking 1352 components driven by a 450 link chain and nickel silver drums in horizontal precision. How cool is that? Still, it’s like buying a house for your wrist. I bet this $400K watch is a real hit with bankers and auto executives. The rest of us can just admire it from afar.

Crazy Dalek Christmas tree exterminates holiday cheer

Crazy Dalek Christmas tree exterminates holiday cheerThis Dalek Christmas tree is scary. Scary because it’s a Dalek and scary because it’s so silly and bizarre that my brain has no idea how to process it. It was created by Minnesotan Lindsey Testolin and features a lot of flashing lights, no sense of style or attitude, some bulb ornaments on the base, and I hope they have a spare laundry basket or he’s gonna lose his neck.

If Doctor Who was a DIY production, this would be an actual screen cap of the Christmas special. Regardless of it’s ragtag DIY look, it warms our cold geek hearts. Video below.

Crazy iPhone 3G line forms in NYC

Crazy iPhone 3G line forms in NYC
The supply is expected to be plentiful, nevertheless a line has already begun outside of Apple’s Fifth Avenue retail store to buy iPhone 3G a week before its release. These people are serious and have their supplies for camping. Wouldn’t it be nicer to stay at home with your families?

Part of the line is occupied by some activists known as “Waiting for Apples” who are hoping to set a Guinness World Record and spread the word about sustainable agriculture. They brought their own solar-power generator, yoga mats, a compost bin full of worms, and probably other hippie essentials. Personally, I can’t think of a better way to spend a week then sitting on my ass next to these guys. Yeah, that would just be awesome…

Longest mobile phone ever is insane

Longest mobile phone ever is insane
I’m going to refrain from doing size doesn’t matter jokes, or perpetuating various stereotypes. Instead I’m just going to say that smoking crack while designing phones is not a good idea. The NEED Phone(As in I need a smaller damn phone) is the longest mobile phone concept we’ve seen yet.

You won’t find any extra features, aside from the fact that it makes a nice weapon. You won’t find a MP3 player, or video capabilities, or even a camera. It does have a touchscreen. In fact, it’s got 2 touchscreens. One is an OLED that displays basic info, while the other is where you do things like scroll forever. This thing is so damn long you could listen to your call on one end while your penis talks it’s head off on the other, for God’s sake.
