Bad Ass Rubber Band Double-Barrel Automatic Minigun

UPDATE: This article has been moved to 1over100.com

Someone had fun in shop class. This ‘wooden toy’ is a home-made, twin cannon, automatic, revolving barrel, mounted minigun capable of firing 288 rubber bands in 7 seconds (approx 40 rb/s). It is appropriately named the Disintegrator. The only issue: takes a while to find, pick-up, and re-load hundreds of black rubber bands.

Wow. How much does it cost to convert an innocent Hello Kitty bike frame into a canvas for 50,000 Swarovski crystals? I don’t think this is going to be used as a training bike any time soon.

Burnt Toys Sold As ‘Urban Collectables’

The Chinnychinchin e-shop sells “individually hand burnt… urban collectable cars” for only $49.95 per smoking carcus. How pleasantly creative and dystopian.

Windows, alloy wheels and stereo are not included… Range includes The Joy Ridden 2-Door Hatchback, The Minivan/Insurance Scam and The Petrol Bombed Jeep.

Mr. Zero Punctuation

Mr. Zero Punctuation

I was a little late in catching onto Mr. Zero Punctuation [Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw], an English video game reviewer for The Escapist magazine. A few scant months back, a co-worker of mine played Croshaw’s review of The Orange Box for me (knowing that I was a huge fan of the game) – and I found myself really not only bowled over by the quality of the review itself, but in the funny and unique presentation. Obviously, the guy gets his moniker from his verbal delivery… he snarkilytalksreallyfastandgetsinalotinaveryshortamountoftime – but the accompanying minimalist / information graphics-style animations are so simple, subversive, and friggin’ fast that you NEED to be paying very close attention to be getting all the jokes, cross-references, jabs, and barbs.

Hell, I’m even not the world’s biggest gamer (in fact, I remain blissfully unaware of most of the games he reviews), but whatever… I could watch this guy review breakfast cereal.

Check him out either via The Escapist or his blog.

UPDATE: This article has been moved to 1over100.com

Yo Gabba Gabba, described by Nick Jr. as “life lessons with a beat”, could more accurately be described as H.R. Pufnstuf, Sesame Street animations, Pee Wee’s Playhouse, and The Friendly Giant put through a psychedelic-indie-techno-retro-west-coast blender. Here’s the intro:

And here’s a song to help kids eat their veggies.

It only makes sense that Kidrobot, purvayers of all things quirky and vinyl, would provide geek parents with another excuse to buy more toys.

Kidrobot Announces Dunny Series 4

12 Car Pileup
Time for me to start working a bit harder, because kidrobot‘s new DUNNYs are hitting the streets September 27th, 2007 (according to toysrevil). This looks to be a very varied and eclectic series. I will have to add as many of these as I can to my currently minuscule collection. I want the Droog and the Chinese Lucky Money Cat. Does anyone else care, or is it just me?
