I dare say, that’s a jolly good steampunk space helmet

steampunk space helmetIf Arthur Conan Doyle, Jules Verne and the like had had the opportunity to explore space, their gear might have looked something like this. Herr Döktor’s Vacuum Survival System, or ‘Space Helmet’ was apparently recently recovered from the archive at “Castle d’Arrogance”. There aren’t a ton of details, but from what I gather, it’s fully functional should you wish to leave Victorian England and explore space.

Some specs include a blown glass pressure bell, cast-iron body with brass and copper fittings, and externally mounted lamp. The chest mounted control box shows the temperature as well as illuminated internal and external pressure gauges. It’s a true work of art so awesome that it will grab you by the handlebar mustache and take you for a ride.

Overclock your DS Lite with XCM Hyper Gear case

Overclock your DS Lite with XCM Hyper Gear caseOverclocking your DS Lite, without having to open it up or use software? The new XCM Hyper Gear case for the DS Lite not only gives your handheld a new look, it also turbocharges your DS Lite games thanks to a switch on it’s bottom right corner. Just flip it, and your DS Lite will run at 140% or 170% of its normal speed.

Seems like it won’t kill your DS, but your battery will die pretty fast. It speeds up your game’s graphics and audio, making everything seem like your DS has a coke habit. XCM expects to release the Hyper Gear case within the next few weeks. So when Mario says Wa-hoo! he’s gonna mean it this time.

Digimech clock has gear driven display

Digimech clock has gear driven display
We all love interesting clocks. And by interesting, I mean bizarre. UK designer Duncan Shotton’s Digimech clock looks like a simple LED clock at first glance, but it’s actually a complicated mechanical machine that creates digital illusions. The vertical slides slowly move into position inside of a black masking box and the time is revealed.

Time marches on while the sliders climb to the top, until the 9th digit hits. Then it drops the slider all the way back to the original position. The slider are moved by 3 servos. It’s a very original and large clock that blends digital and mechanical in an interesting way. Check out the video below.

Star Wars fishing gear: For when the force won’t work

Star Wars fishing gear: For when the force won’t work
The force works for all kinds of things. Everything from shooting a laser into the Death Star to lifting an X-wing out of a Dagobah swamp. But apparently, it won’t help you catch fish. That’s what this Star Wars fishing gear is for.

The fishing rod has a lightsaber handle(of course), and you can get a themed tackle box to go along with it. How about a Darth Vader fun net? That’s not a very tough product for Vader. One bit of advice, if you catch Jar-Jar, throw him back immediately. That guy is annoying as hell. Clumsy too.

Star Wars Golf gear for the sporting geek

Star Wars Golf gear
This thing looks like a Stormtrooper that displeased Darth Vader and got stomped on with the Force. It’s actually part of the official Star Wars Golf gear. That’s right, now you can proclaim your love for a galaxy far far away on the Golf course. Does this product belong in the rejected Star Wars pile? You be the judge.

You have a choice of Stormtrooper white or Darth Vader black. They’re made in Japan and apparently the quality is good. They should go on sale soon for about $500. With this gear AND the Force, you will rule the green. But always be on the lookout for Ewoks, the deadliest enemy the Empire has ever known.(And not bad golfers themselves.)
