GoPad Atari Asteroids

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on March 7th, 2011

Every now and then I want to play some Atari games, but I don’t want to dig up my old console and hook everything up. So this is a great way to get in a quick game of Asteroids. GoPad has released the Atari Asteroids gaming controller which comes preloaded with Asteroids and works with PCs and Macs.

Just plug in the device and fire up the game and go pew pew pew. The mini-controller has a d-pad and four buttons to shoot. Not sure why such a simple game needs four buttons though. You just need one to shoot. The GoPad Atari Asteroids game is just $24.

Call of Duty multiplayer subscription/premium content expected soon

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on January 4th, 2011

The Call of Duty game franchise might have some sort of in game charge for premium content or multiplayer subscription services very soon. Possibly in April. One analyst thinks that a monetized second tier of multiplayer online gaming might arrive at about that time.

Wedbush Securities’ January newsletter states that “Activision remains a top pick, primarily due to the company’s potential to create and monetize a second tier of multiplayer online gaming for its Call of Duty franchise. We expect this to occur during the first quarter of 2011″. But the big question is whether enough gamers would be willing to pay for something like this.

New Xbox 360 250GB hacked to play backup discs

Posted in Xbox 360 by Conner Flynn on August 15th, 2010

We are pretty sure Microsoft isn’t happy about this, but a video has surfaced which claims to have successfully patched the DVD drive to play burned discs on the new Xbox 360. The issue isn’t just about piracy though. Many Xbox users like to burn a backup copy of their game CDs in case the original disc gets damaged.

Even so, I’m sure microsoft will be on this quickly, trying to figure out a way to prevent the hack. The group behind the video(It can be found below) claims that the patch will be available soon, which is good news if you want to backup games for your new Xbox 360.

Play Origami MP3 player

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

Everyone’s MP3 player of choice may be the iPod, but every now and then we do see something different in a concept, which we would like to own. The Play MP3 player doesn’t have a touchscreen or buttons. Instead it works by doing origami.

Fold the player in half to play. If you want to rewind, just slide one of the pieces. Sure it isn’t practical, but Origami fans should love it. Still, we don’t expect to see this one anytime soon.

Justin Timberlake’s “Play” cologne looks like an MP3 Player

Posted in MP3 by Conner Flynn on August 23rd, 2009

Justin Timberlake's "Play" cologne looks like an MP3 PlayerI have no idea why you would want to smell like Justine Timberlake thinks you should smell, but his “Play” cologne for Givenchy tries to take advantage of your love for gadgets by mimicking am MP3 player. The bottle was designed by Serge Mansau, who has created bottles for other Givenchy fragrances.

It features Play/Rewind/Forward touch buttons, but it’s all a fake. Rest assured that you will repel girls with your pop star smell and the poorly designed bottle is not even worth bragging about to your friends, who will dwindle in numbers as they each seek to escape the scented cloud of funk that is you.

OpenChord allows real guitars to play Guitar Hero

Posted in Musical Instruments by Conner Flynn on August 7th, 2009

GuitarOpenChord has designed a system that allows an actual real guitar to sync up with your Nintendo Wii to play Guitar Hero. Just plug the Wiimote into the guitar and use real strings and frets instead of plastic buttons. There is one hitch and it’s a big one.

Guitar Hero wasn’t designed for use with six strings and 22 to 24 frets. Which kinda blows the whole thing out of the water. Too bad. Playing GH with a real guitar sounds like a nightmare. Who would have thought? Check out a video below.

Play Basketball with your popcorn bowl

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on August 3rd, 2009

Play Basketball with your popcorn bowlLike popcorn? What about Basketball? At last you can combine both and play with your food. Your popcorn may not dribble down the court, make passes or block, but each kernel can get nothing but net as you launch it on it’s way.

It’s a six-quart bowl that features a kernel separator and holders for a remote control, beverages and napkins. Think you have what it takes to rule the popcorn court? I’m assuming you can remove the hoop and shoot it straight in your mouth.

GameBone Pro iPhone controller charges your iPhone while you play

Posted in iPhone Accessories by Conner Flynn on June 23rd, 2009

GameBone Pro iPhone controller charges your iPhone while you playGame controllers have now gone to the dogs. But this stupid looking controller is actually pretty useful. It will charge your battery while you play, but the downside is that you have to have it plugged in to the iPhone 30-pin port. The GameBone can also be used via Bluetooth, but of course you can’t charge the iPhone wirelessly.

I have a feeling your dog will love it though. Sadly, it doesn’t even have any way to hold up the iPhone, so you’d have to prop it up, unless they ship it with a stand.

Underground Time Capsule comes too late for my childhood

Posted in Toys by Conner Flynn on February 16th, 2009

Underground Time Capsule comes too late for my childhoodKids are like dogs. They make messes, they dig stuff, they bury stuff…Some slobber all over themselves. They love to bury things and dig them up like 20 years later. Check out this awesome toy that I never had as a kid. The Underground Time Capsule.

It’s designed to go underground and hide precious objects for future generations(Or yourself) to find. You know, Baseball cards, bottle caps, a porn mag or two. What makes this so interesting is that it makes the process easier for you with a screw-on rock at the top, allowing you to add new items without digging it up again.

Alarm clock forces you to play a game of Simon in the morning

Posted in Clocks by Conner Flynn on February 6th, 2009

Alarm clock forces you to play a game of Simon in the morningWant to wake up in the morning only to have your brain trained with a retro memory game? Here’s the ticket. This alarm clock will not shut up until you play a version of the vintage game and get it right.

If you correctly remember the sequence of lights and press the buttons on the clock in the correct order, you can earn some peace and quiet, then either get out of bed or go back to sleep. On the other hand, you can always smash it to bits. I don’t see any info on price or availability.

Massage your feet while you play Wii Fit

Posted in Wii Accessories by Conner Flynn on January 20th, 2009

Massage your feet while you play Wii FitWii-Fit can be a lot of hard work I suppose. It’s all about exercise after all. Your feet probably could do with a massage during that workout. These silicone covers were specially designed to cover the Wii Fit Balance Board, and it also doubles as an anti-slip mat(Clever BS) for those of you who sweat so profusely that you often slip on your own stinky excretions.

Amazon is carrying this thing for $9.99. All I can think about is how this thing deserves it’s own late-night info-mercial right next to the Sham-wow. I’m calling BS on all it’s claims and I dare you to spend $9.99 and prove me wrong. This is just a $10 piece of silicone.

Microwaves play Jingle Bells

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


Christmas is almost here and it’s time to celebrate. And by celebrate, I mean let’s watch a bunch of Microwaves, 49 to be exact, play “Jingle Bells” with their timer bells. Of course, the timers all had to be set manually, but they did a good job considering.

I picture this 49 microwave contraption rigged to the chimney somehow, as a Santa alarm. It could go off just as Santa is entering your home and cook him up some nice quick meals at the same time. He’ll surely reward you with an extra present or two.
