4-5 Years ago I was at a Flash Forward Conference where the keynote speaker, (I forgot who it was but it was pretty inspirational regardless), anyway he had demo’d a tiny projector smaller then a cellphone, and proposed the concept of having the ability to project your phone screen on a wall so everyone could see what your looking at, instead of hoovering over someone shoulder. The concept was amazing and it looks like we are on our way finally…Hong Kong-based Earth Trek has nonetheless gone out and proclaimed its new 90-805R projector to be the “world’s smallest” . Measuring about 4 by 2 inches, the projector can apparently pump out a 22-inch diagonal image (no word from what distance), with an SD card slot and an A/V input provided via a 3.5 mm jack, not to mention a built-in speaker. No word on a price or release date. Check out the competition cellphone projector rush.
Unless you’re a 16 year old girl in highschool. TWBE waste of money, Ok Mimbots are cool…etc, but a hoody? I cannot stand the retarded print hoodies as it is. Do you really need it for your usb drive?

Super Pii Pii Brothers promotes good bathroom skills and allows women to experience for the first time the pleasure of urinating while standing.”
“As any good geek should know by now Japan has some of the wackiest and most unusual products anywhere. So when we were visiting Tokyo recently and saw lines of Japanese schoolgirls waiting to play an amazing new game for the Wii called Super Pii Pii Brothers we were only a little surprised. After all with games like WarioWare and Raving Rabbids the Wii is no stranger to crazy gameplay mechanics… but it was quite unusual to see the “strap-on” style accessory and peeing action that Pii Pii Brothers provides. Normally ThinkGeek doesn’t carry video games, but we were so blown-away by Super Pii Pii Brothers that we immediately got our trusted Japanese importer on the phone and arranged to bring over a limited quantity of this amazing Wii game along with some cross regional boot discs to allow play on USA Wii consoles.
The play mechanics are simple. Prepare yourself by strapping on the included belt harness and jacking in your Wiimote. A series of toilets are presented on screen and the challenge is to tilt your body to control a never-ending stream of pee. Get as much pee in the toilets as you can while spilling as little on the floor as possible. Sounds easy eh? Well the toilets open and close whack-a-mole style and occasionally the stray cat or other cute critter pops up. Spray a cat for extra points. Get too much pee on the ground and your game is over. With realistic fluid dynamics for the pee and over 100 different bathrooms from bars and palaces to automatic Japanese style toilets you’ll be entertained for hours. And wait until your friends see the multi-player mode with dueling pee streams…” [via thinkgeek]

Kittiwat Unarrom got a master’s degree in fine arts and now makes lifelike body parts out of bread at a bakery in Thailand. All the disturbing yeast sculptures are made out of dough, raisins, cashews and chocolate. He’ll also paint the outside with some sort of edible paint to give it an even more gruesome appearance. When asked why he does it, Kittiwat replied, “I’m a wackjob and I like making people sick”.

$58,250 is a small price to pay to have the convenience of personal flight.
Mike Giant, the man who creates the sickest black & white drawings using sharpies, has his own. Quite fitting, if you have ever been in front of one of his drawings you can understand the importance of a nice black line. A couple words from the man himself, “I’ve been drawing with Sharpies almost exclusively since 1990. If someone then had told me that I’d have a Signature Sharpie someday, I would have laughed at them.”
