I think you would be hard pressed to find a gamer who doesn’t have a special place in their heart for Donkey Kong.  It is one of those games that not only did people like me grow up on, but was great enough to inspire documentaries about people who hold the world record for the game.

Well, this Donkey Kong might not be exactly as you remember because it has been taken over by some of your favorite Star Wars characters instead.  I haven’t seen any indication that this is a real game, but I hope so because I would love to jump over the R2-D2 droids that Jabba the Hut is trying to throw at me while I try to reach slave Leia.

I’ve always thought it would be kind of cool to do the home automation thing to my house but I never really looked into it too seriously since I figured it would cost a ton of money to do.

Well, a UC Berkeley student named Derek Low invested only a few hundred dollars (and presumably a fair bit of time) turning his dorm room into an automated dream dorm room known as B.R.A.D (Berkeley Ridiculously Automated Dorm)!  With the automation of things like curtains, lights and even a disco ball, with just a few taps of an iOS app or spoken commands, this dorm room can be transformed from homework time to party time or even sexy time!

I post all kinds of great tattoos, but none of them ever seem to have any story with them.  Well, this Final Fantasy tattoo has a rather touching story with it.  Back in June, Taylor (the guy in the picture with this amazing Final Fantasy tattoo) sadly lost his brother-in-law in the war in Afghanistan.  Before his brother-in-law was killed, the two had decided to get tattoos upon his return from deployment.

Unfortunately, Taylor’s brother-in-law didn’t make it home to get that tattoo but Taylor went ahead and got one anyway as a memorial to his brother-in-law.  As for why the tattoo is a Final Fantasy tattoo, its because the two bonded over playing Final Fantasy XI.

If I didn’t have the emotions of a Vulcan, that story would bring a tear to my eye.

As much as I love how sturdy my leather iPad case is (I forget the brand), I have always thought it was a bit bulky for as plain as it is (all black).  I’ve been considering getting a new iPad case for a while but haven’t had much luck coming across anything I liked with a high geek factor.  Until now!

Etsy seller MyGeekyBoyfriend is the awesome person selling this fantastic hand-made, felt Boba Fett iPad case (which I would actually consider more of a sleeve) for just $29.00!  It also has a pouch for carrying your earbuds which is something all iPad cases need!

I always enjoy seeing some amazing stained glass when it is not in some kind of religious context.  Religious stained glass can be amazing but its so common I almost don’t see it as special anymore.  However, it is pretty rare to come across some awesome video game inspired stained glass which is why I was really excited when I saw this beautiful Halo Legendary Spartan Shield stained glass.  DeviantART user Veggie-San is the creator of this amazing Halo Legendary Spartan Shield stained glass and they also take orders for this although no price is mentioned so who knows how much it costs to be the owner if this amazing Halo awesomeness.
