    This is a short film called Pac-Man: The Movie. It's told from the ghosts perspective, by four people running around in colored trash bags. I thought it was pretty cute. Not baby bunny cute, mind you, but definitely cuter than unidentifiable roadkill. Youtube Thanks to N... / Continue →

    A couple weeks ago we saw the AirKick human catapult,and today we've got a video of the homemade variety. I don't really have much to say except they didn't make it powerful enough. You'd have to chuck a body at least twice that hard if you expect to damage a castle. Homem... / Continue →

    The Super Genintari was made by the same modder as yesterday's Nintoaster and combines four gaming systems in one. I'll let you guess which four. Pretty impressive, Mr. Modder, but I see your Super Genintari and raise you one XPlay-NeoGrafxJagDream 260064360. Geekologie Writ... / Continue →

    Chios, Greece doesn't celebrate Easter with dyed eggs and a big chocolate bunny. No sir, they do it up right -- with two churches firing thousands of fireworks at one another. The tradition dates back to 1889 (OLD!), when Ottoman forces confiscated the islander's cannons and ... / Continue →

    Thought the gold Porsche and Burberry Maserati were bad? How about a pink camo Bugatti Veyron? I know, I think I just shat in my mouth a little too. The Veyron (and green camo Rolls Royce Phantom after the jump!) are both owned by Nigo, the ban behind Japanese clothing line ... / Continue →

    The Nintoaster is a Nintendo inside a toaster. You insert a game, press the lever down, and presto -- a nice heaping portion of NES-y breakfast in no time. It even glows red like a real toaster. But don't try sticking bread in there, because it won't work! Combine this suck... / Continue →
