Vulcain Nautical Cricket 1970 Watch: A Classic Gets Remade

I remember that when I was a kid, it was a big deal when my dad got a Seiko analog watch that had a built-in alarm clock. It was definitely something different, and it looked better than a lot of digital watches. The Vulcain Nautical Cricket Watch was an early analog alarm watch from 1970, which is now being remade.

LEGO Macintosh: The Only Time I Want to See My Apple Bricked

Ah, the original Macintosh computer. It was an amazing machine to have in your home, especially when most of the other available computers were a bit more complex to use. The Macintosh made things easier, with its graphical user interface, and apps like MacPaint and MacWrite. While it’s not as functional as an original Mac, this LEGO version is still pretty cute.

Space Invader Chair Concept Needs to Be Real

I was floored when I saw this Space Invader chair. It comes in a nice array of colors and looks pretty comfortable on top of looking fantastically retro. Sure, it’s not a Space Invaders love seat, but then again, having two of these colorful invaders in your pad would make it look even awesomer.

The Yodeling Radio Man, A “Classic” Robot From the 1930s

Can you imagine why a robot would need to yodel? I’ve got no idea because yodeling is fricking annoying in my book. Radio Man was featured in the April 1939 issue of Popular Science, and was the Slim Whitman of early android technology.

Retrode Copies Your Favorite Classic NES Games

Imagine if you could find a use for all those classic games that you’ve got laying about your garage or basement? Sure, from time to time, I get out my NES or SNES and play a few classic games, like Contra or Shadow of the Ninja. Wouldn’t it be cool to be able to play these on your computer without having to resort to illicit ROM downloads from the Internet?

Customize Your New iPod in Different Ways

032709_rg_customizedipod_01.jpgiPods are great music players. Personally, I have trouble with iTunes, but maybe that’s because I don’t have a Mac yet. Still, after about 8 years and only two different iPods in all of that time, one iPod 40GB with the old school screen and one iPod Classic 160GB from last year, I’m pretty satisfied with the little gizmo. My iPod Classic has been running every day since last January, without ever so much as a glitch. The battery lasts pretty long. Even though I use it every day, I only charge it once every two weeks. That’s pretty impressive. Some people might think that the iPods are a bit sober in colors. It’s true that they tend to be black or white or covered in brushed aluminum. This is why I really find that customizing your iPod is a good idea. It makes it unique, and all of us like having stuff that is unique.
