It may shoot little 6mm plastic pellets like the little handgun you used to sting your college roommates with but, with 35 inches of full metal construction, this 30+ pound monster is anything but typical.

Post a Comment

What happens when little boys who love their toys grow up? They buy a 6 foot long, 170lb, 350cc four stroke, 1:3 scale remote control truck.

No, that is not a typo, the guys at Mammuth Works have essentially created a race ready quad, added some servos and, terrifyingly, removed the driver.

This German Millionaire Guy Made a Separation Slingshot Gun That Shoots Oreos

Post a Comment

Meet Joerg Sprave – coming soon to a reality TV show near you – a multimillionaire German CEO who likes weaponizing and lethalizing everything he can get his hands on, even office supplies and paper planes. Sprave features his virtually deadly creations on his YouTube station called “The Slingshot Channel.” Watch him construct car-sized slingshots of mass destruction, gatling slingshot crossbows and, his newest creation, an Oreo Separation Pump Gun that was designed to annihilate your favorite chocolate, creamy afternoon snack.

Joerg Sprave

Imagine taking over a country… with Oreos? Nabisco wouldn’t be proud. With this 14 shot, high-powered manual, pump action sling gun, Sprave say’s, “It’s a basic human desire to destroy an OREO cookie.” Sprave’s Oreo shooter, which is made out of a lightweight plywood of sorts, is half Mad Max and half John Malkovich’s gun in the 1991 feature film “In The Line of Fire.”

Geek Time: Death Star Planetarium for Earth & Endor

Post a Comment

How has any self respecting geeky kid (or adult for that matter) ever lived without the Death Star Planetarium?

death-star-planetarium

Frankly fans of stars, astronomers and Lucasfilm vets alike, will find it hard not to splurge thirty dollars US, for a cooler than cool looking globe cast as a model of George Lucas’s Death Star to grace their desk, coffee table, or work station.

But then the nerdgasm takes you . . .

Snowtime Anytime Brings the Snowball Fight Indoors

Post a Comment

There’s one problem with indoor snowball fights — the cleanup. With Snowtime you get most of the fun of an indoor frozen projectile war with none of soggy mess.

Snowtime Anytime is a pack of lightweight cotton snowballs designed to keep kids (even in the warmest of climates) busy and exercising all year long. And it works but, as the inventors quickly figured out, everyone loves a snowball fight. Now the zip-up carrying case packaging says, this product is for “ages 3 to 103,” which is all the justification adults need for holiday or office parties of any kind.

Geek Weekly: 1/4 Scale Gollum & Smeagol Make for a Precious Gift

1 Comment

It is never too late to give the most precious gift a loved geek could ever hope to attain . . . an amazingly detailed ¼ scale Gollum and Smeagol figure.

The completely pose-able wretch sports twenty-five points of articulation so that every literary Tolkien (or imagined) pose of the skulking villain can be marvelously recreated in your very home.

Modeled after the ingenious Andy Serkis and Peter Jackson version of the creature Gollum from The Lord of the Rings movies (we’ll just forget the travesty of The Hobbit movie ever happened), this little Smeagol can be kindly pawing at your Frodo Baggins’s figure’s knees.

Winged Flight From The Comfort of Your Couch

It’s time to step up your indoor flying game with Plantraco’s amazing indoor remote controlled micro airplane.

This curiously capable carbon fiber based flying machine has a wingspan of 7.5 inches yet it amazingly weighs in at a mere 3.6 grams. And that’s not just the frame, we’re talking about full flying weight including the receiver and 30mAh LiPo battery.

ATOMS: Foster Creativity and Scare Your Mom

Post a Comment

Most toys don’t do anything. Perhaps a pair of eyes will light up or some fake fire sparks will come out of Godzilla’s mouth or maybe a doll will pee so you have to change it’s diaper, but where is the real imagination? What alternative do we have for a generation (and demographic) of kids who might know how to use an iPad by the time they can walk? Colorado based company Seamless Toy Company seems to have the answer with their wildly inventive and interactive line of toys called ATOMS Express.

ATOMS are essentially building blocks and modules that can make preexisting toys comes to life using elements like motors, light sensors, sound modules, knob modules, battery bricks, and Bluetooth enabled iPhone bricks. Yes, with no parental supervision you can make your LEGO castle explode into pieces, magic wands that can turn on lights, and make stuffed animals come to life. Finally, technology comes head to head with a childlike imagination.

Hands On: Somersaulting UFO Quadcopter From Brando

Post a Comment

The easily affordable, mini UFO quadcopter from Brando zips, dips, and even flips with a simple push of a button.

As far as RC flying gadgets go, this is hands down the most fun I’ve ever had for under 50 bucks.

When it comes to power, speed, and stability the UFO is a substantial step up from those mini helicopters you see kicking around the mall kiosks but, with that speed and power comes a responsibility. If you’ve never put in any RC flight time, you’ll probably want to pick up a couple – one to learn on and one to play with after you inevitably crash and burn. Did I mention the thing does flips?
