Officially Licensed TARDIS Computer Case

I'm posting this just in time for Christmas, the British computer retailer Scan has started selling a computer which is in the shape of the Doctor Who Tardis. I don't really know why I'm blogging about Doctor Who because I've never even seen an episode, in fact, Doctor Who? Who? You see, I'm hilarious. Ask any of my virtual "girlfriends".

The Doctor Who Tardis PC Chassis is available from the low price of £935.99, you can customise it how you like up to £1,947.55, which in my opinion would make a good insurance claim. JK I'm a good boy.

Nightmares for the rest of your life: Pikachu and Mario skin-tight fetish suits

Aside from all the weird activities you partake in when you're alone and naked, there's another thing for you to add to your weird fetish collection; Pikachu and Mario skin-tight suits.  The company Milanoo sells latex/lycra "zenshin tights" which covers you from head to feet in NIGHTMARES FOREVER a different range of characters, including Mario, Pikachu, Kratos and many more.

In other less important news, the large game company THQ had its last few final days before its game franchises were sold to Loch Media (owner and publisher of Deep Silver who made Dead Island). More can be read about this via Kotaku.

Playing Fruit Ninja on thin air

Okay, I lied in the title, it is actually just vapour (which is way more boring). This reporter is playing a game of Fruit Ninja on Displair (at the low low price of only $10,000), this demo shows how bad technology is      shows how expensive a game of Fruit Ninja is    only shows that tablets are much better shows how vapour can be used to have an image projected onto it, thus giving the appearance of playing on thin air.

As you can tell the performance isn't the best due to low response times, it won't be available to consumers (read: peasants) for at least 5 years so hopefully the product will improve by then.

Rest In Piece PS2

So, apparently Sony has officially stopped manufacturing PlayStation 2's after selling over 150 million units, and also 6 years after its successor was released, the PS3.  Don't worry, don't feel bad I also had no idea they were still being made up until recently (seriously.. who would even use a PlayStation 2 still?)

"After over 150 million units sold, Sony has finally put the PlayStation 2 out to pasture.

Even now, as we bid the old bird farewell, the PS2 can hold its proverbial head high. Over 1.5 billion copies of nearly 11,000 titles were sold over the last 12 years. The 70 million PS3 sales to date pale in comparison the the numbers put up by the PS2. In fact, by the numbers, the PS2 is -- make that was -- the most successful console of all time."

Who cares? Goodnight sweet prince.

My two favourite things combined: Bioshock Big Daddy LEGO

This is a Big Daddy sculpture from Bioshock built out of LEGO, by Finnish LEGO lover Pate-Keetongu.  The sculpture wasn't completely made from LEGO, it is built from pieces of the Lego from the  "Exo-Force flying mecha sets" and the hand drill is a piece from a "Rock Raiders set" from the late 1990's.

"The body is built of pieces from the Lego Exo-Force flying mecha sets, and the arms use ball joints and are movable. For the the builder used a "Big ball" or "Tectonic ball" piece, which is held onto the body with the bricks and tubes around it. The Big Daddy's hand drill is a piece of the classic Rock Raiders sets from the late 1990s."

I would definitely love to buy this as a set and built it however unfortunately it would not meet LEGO's target demographic, but I can always steal his design, ideas and build it myself dream.  That and buy other LEGO sets in the mean time.  The construction process and loads more pictures of the Big Daddy can be found on his blog.
