If you're in love with all that is Lego, you might enjoy this geeky office supply. This product happens to be sold by the same people who were selling the Lego Tower Mood Light, so you can snag them both from the same place.
As a kid I grew up with Legos and apparently as an adult I still can't rid myself of my fascination with them. This light would be yet another way to show a bit of geeky pride in the classic toy that many of us dabbled with.
This little half-domino shaped/sized squares are actually individual really tiny computers. You build them together to add functionality to whatever pieces you already have.
They each have a bunch of component in them starting with a 20MHz AVR processor and full color OLED screen on the top. Then they have tactile/haptic drivers, a 3-axis accelerometer, built in flash memory, and rechargeable Lithium-Polymer batteries.
For some having their gadgets blend in with everyone else is reason to be horrified for life. Now occasionally, that means they must have the newest gadget money can buy, however, other times it means having one of those quirky underground gadgets. This Homade Lego MP3 Player is one way to make sure you always stand out from the crowd.
Earlier this week when I reported that the upcoming Lego Indiana Jones title would support 4-player co-op, I admit that I had my doubts. I really couldn't picture myself trying to coordinate my actions with three other people in my living room throughout the entire game. Apparently there's no need to worry about it, as the game will only be 2-player.
Believe it or not, the LEGO came from Denmark, 50 years ago today, and its been a long successful run since then, and they are still going strong. Their products have ranged from random groups of LEGO’s all the way up to specified kits to built the ship from some movie that was just released.
Technically, it can’t be a lightsaber, because that requires licensing from Lucas Arts and blah blah blah buearocratic BS. Anyways, it’s a “Light Sword” that your Wii remote clips into.
There aren’t yet any proper Star Wars games for which to use this sword with, but there is Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga. Or you could use it with any other games that have some swording action, like the mythical Fencing 2k8 from EA sports, yeah right.
Alright, so Lego Salt and Pepper Shakers are not exactly hi-tech, but they fit into that cool geeky nitch that I enjoy so much. These shakers are enough to turn even the most chic kitchen into a geek one.
If you've been reading SlashGear for any amount of time and don't know by now that I'm a Star Wars nut, then you're not really paying attention. This fact of course means that I'm getting pretty excited about the upcoming Lego Star Wars: The Complete Sage game.
