Gigantic 17 x 17 x 17 Rubik’s Cube is crazy

Posted in Toys by Conner Flynn on January 30th, 2011

If you have trouble solving the original Rubik’s cube, you will have no hope of solving this one. Shapeway’s huge 17 x 17 x 17 Rubik’s Cube boggles my mind just looking at it. Designer Oskar van Deventer’s massive 17 x 17 x 17 Rubik’s Cube is now a reality.

Deventer has successfully used a 3D printer to bring his puzzle to life. It has over 1539 individual pieces and took over 15 hours in total to create. He will be presenting his world record shattering Rubik’s Cube next month in New York City. I wonder how long it will take the most skilled people to solve it.

Sweet Cake makes anything look like a huge cupcake

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on July 12th, 2009

Sweet Cake makes anything look like a huge cupcakeYou know those cupcake wrappers? Yeah this is like that but much much larger. Apparently the idea behind “Sweet Cake” is to make anything and everything resemble a cupcake. You can use it as a planter, a kiddie pool, sandbox…

Why, you could even fill it up with a ton of cupcake batter and let it bake in the hot sun if you were so inclined. Show your love of cupcakes in a whole new way. It will cost you 149,00€ and some strange stares from the neighbors.

6-Channel Surround Sound headphonesThe Zalman ZM-RS6F+M 6-Channel Surround Sound Headphones + Microphone is as close as you will ever get to being that Lobot guy from Empire Strikes Back. I always wondered what that guy’s deal was. It was surround sound!

It’s from Brando. These Real Surround Sound Headphones produce a real surround field that is said to be comparable to a complete multi-channel speaker system as it will enhance directional, spatial, and realistic effects. Only $57.00 and you can be that guy! Now be honest fellow geeks, how many of you actually knew that character’s name?

Gigantic fire breathing robot descends on Japan

Gigantic fire breathing robot descends on JapanSilly Japan. You are just inviting the wrath of future robot-things with your antics… Perhaps you like having all of your buildings come down around you. Maybe you don’t mind being flame-broiled by robot breath. All I can say is, you brought it on yourself. Having said that, we do really think this freakish robot baby thing in the streets of Roppongi is pretty frakkin awesome.

“Giant Torayan” is a seven meter tall fire-breathing baby-faced harbinger of death. It’s also the work of artist Kenji Yanobe, who clearly has issues that should never ever be explored by any therapist. Ever. It’s a win/win. We get to see all this cool stuff from Japan, they pay the price later at the hands of a vengeful bot or five-hundred.

Huge remote control gets you off the couch

Huge remote control gets you off the couchDo you want a remote that will get you off your butt and help you shed some of those couch potato pounds? Here’s just the thing. Change the channel like playing DDR. Some creative guy with dreams of a huge remote saw an over-sized novelty remote at Brookstone and it was destiny.

He stitcheed together two PS2 Dance Dance Revolution mats, a PS2-to-PC controller converter box, and some homebrew source code. It works, but I think I’ll stick with the palm sized version. This would however be a great preventative device for those people who get so obese that they need a crane to break their wall and take them to the hospital. Video below.

Bang & Olufsen BeoCom2 cordless phone

Posted in Bang & Olufsen by Conner Flynn on December 21st, 2008

Bang & Olufsen BeoCom2 cordless phoneFirst off, these phones are so long, they’re crazy. They look like a bunch of techno-cobras ready to strike, but kept at bay by a pair of lovely Asian ladies. So what’s the deal? These are from Bang & Olufsen, unique cordless telephones called BeoCom2 in Korea.

Each phone uses a single piece of curved aluminum to create a slender, though HUGE shape that’s easy to pick up, handle and operate with one hand. I suppose it would be good for seniors, or those with huge heads. Should you fall into one of those two categories, the BeoCom2 will be available in six different colors which will include white, blue, yellow, grey, black and natural aluminum. The Bang & Olufsen BeoCom2 is available for 1,790,000(KRW).

Jumbo Universal Remote Control for fat fingers

Posted in Remotes by Conner Flynn on September 15th, 2008

Jumbo Universal Remote Control for fat fingersYou’ll have a hard time losing this model of remote from Zeon, since it is huge. It’s capable of controlling your TV, DVD and satellite box. Rest assured that no matter how fat in the fingers you are, you can still hit the buttons. No matter how far along you are in your glaucoma, you’ll see the buttons easily. The elderly may still lose it by forgetting, but it’s so big they’ll find it a few minutes later when it trips them on the floor. Just buy it for said older person, use the remote control codes to synch it up with your TV and DVD player etc, and you’re good to go. Still requires only 2 AA batteries and will cost you $18.

Four-foot SNES controller works

Posted in Nintendo by Conner Flynn on August 30th, 2008

Four-foot SNES controller worksIf Bigfoot actually existed, which we all know he does, he would need a giant controller to play Nintendo with you. This is what he would use, while you used your puny girlly controller. It was obviously inspired by the NES coffee table we showed you awhile back.

It’s made by SCAD Inc., a company that has seemingly mastered the art of enlarging things. This giant SNES controller actually has working buttons. The body is cut from wood and the buttons are connected directly to the guts of a standard SNES controller. Matt LaBoone, the main guy on the build, says that videos are coming soon.

The Gunbus is an aptly named killer cycle

The Gunbus is an aptly named killer cycle
The picture above reminds me of my youth. Not since my high-school days has a woman ever had such power between her legs. (Insert rim-shot. Deafening silence.) Anyway, this behemoth is powered by a “410-cubic-inch, air-cooled, pushrod V-Twin” and “is actually ready to ride on normal roads and will soon go into series production.”

Yes, you will be able to buy one. As for the rest of us, this thing is going to scare you when you see it coming. And no, that’s not a really small woman. It will be interesting to see what crazy stunts people will do with these. We want.

Chronoswiss Wristmaster: The straight jacket of watches
It might help to have arms like the hulk to wear this monstrosity. It’s yet another of those odd watches we love from Basel Fair. It’s not for the feint of heart and it’s not for puny men with spaghetti arms. It goes by the “Chronoswiss Wristmaster”. Look at the size of this thing. It master’s any wrist it attaches to. Putting it on must be like saddling a small horse.

It’s hailed as the First Automatic Board Watch for the Wrist, and features a double strap and display, consisting of a chronograph on the right and a standard display on the left. It measures a full 84mm x 42mm.
