This is a little diorama of the cabin from ‘The Evil Dead’ built ON A HAT by Kiersten Essenpreis for her Halloween costume. You can see her friend Marc’s Book of the Dead costumes (with opening cover) after the jump. Admittedly, she did a great job, it’s just not a very PRACTICAL hat. You know what are though? Jimmy hats. Wrap those wieners up. “But–” Yes, even for in the butt.
Hit the jump for Ash and the worthwhile Book of the Dead costume.
I already shared my first impressions of a lot of Apple’s newly announced products today, but we’ve also got video from the time we spent with the iPad mini and the Retina MacBook Pro. Watching these things in action provides an entirely different perspective compared to reading about them or looking at static pictures, and seeing the iPad mini do its thing really does a better job of conveying the value of the device, so check out the video above.Related Posts:
Talk of HTC’s rumored, giant DLX has veered between the plausible and not-so-plausible. We might just toss the newest tip into that former category. Football4PDA, who’s developing a reputation for uncanny accuracy in leaks, has posted what’s claimed to be the core specifications of HTC’s first phablet. The DLX would mirror earlier expectations of a 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro and a 5-inch, 1080p display, but push past the OneX+ in more ways than just physical heft: the extra space might just help it afford 1.5GB of RAM, a 12-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front shooter and a larger-still (but non-removable) 2,500mAh battery. We’re not as much of a fan of the threadbare 16GB of storage that’s supposedly in the cards, though, even with a new Android 4.1.2 build in store. Provided that there’s more to the story than just 136 characters, the real point of contention is the ship date — having mostly cleared the decks between its September event and its One X+ introduction, HTC hasn’t left much time for the possibly Verizon-bound flagship to show its face.
This is the $ 2,060 Eastpak Sofa. It’s a little sofa made out of backpack fabric that has a bunch of pockets for all your stuff. Like so many other things, I half want it and half think it’s stupidest thing ever made. I would like it more if all the compartments were detachable though. That way when the cops bust in you can just grab the one with the drugs and the one with the parachute and dive out a window. Just make sure the one with the parachute is actually the one with the parachute though. There’s nothing worse than finding out your parachute is actually an extra blanket when you’re already mid-fall. Back me up, nobody who’s alive to agree.
Hit the jump for a couple more shots including what the couch looks like IN BLACK. That’s right folks — color options!
You never really know what to expect when two of the bigger names in tech join forces and announce something fresh. In some cases you may see an end result of things like that RAZR i, but when Dropbox and Facebook are involved, you can surely bet it has to do with sharing something with your pals — and such is the case today. Dropbox announced earlier that it’s now allowing folks to share files with their friends inside Facebook Groups, giving users the ability to instantly post anything from notes to videos with a couple of simple clicks. Of course, those on the other side will be able to like what you share, leave comments, as well as be updated automatically as soon as an edit has been made. At the moment, not everyone’s seeing the changes just yet, though Dropbox has said it shouldn’t be too long before most people can spot the new feature.

You know you want this thing: it’s a crazy watch from Tokyoflash called the Kisai Uzumaki and it’s designed to look like some sort of organic sea anemone blossoming on your wrist.
The watch has an electroluminescent backlight which lights up vinyl disks which spin to tell the time. It’s not as hard to read as some Tokyoflash watches and they want to give you one. To enter, comment below explaining why you need a new watch. I’ll pick one winner at random on Monday and we’ll get your watch to you a few days after – just in time for your Fourth of July festivities!
Good luck and thanks to our friends at Tokyoflash.Related Posts:
The auction house Sotheby’s is selling an official memo from Steve Jobs to Atari about improving the World Cup Football game. The pages – stamped and signed by Jobs himself – describe circuit diagrams and paddle layouts. Delightfully, the stamp says “All-One Farm Design” and features a Buddhist mantra, “gate gate paragate parasangate bodhi svahdl.” As you do.
If you’re thinking of picking this up you’d best have about $ 10,000 to $ 15,000 handy – although bidding could get fierce. Quoth MacWorld:The June 15th, 2012 auction features a 5 page memo sent to Atari employee Steve Bristow by Steve Jobs. This memo describes changes that could be made to Atari’s World Cup Soccer arcade game. These changes were designed to add play variety to the game and to extend the ‘shelf life’ for arcade operators. While the memo is typed on Atari letterhead, it also features a stamp imprinted with the name of Steve Job’s company at the time “All-One Farm Design” and the address of the Jobs family garage( and the birthplace of Apple Computer). The memo features a circuit diagram and a hand written addendum.
This is the earliest know documentation produced by Steve Jobs and predates the founding of Apple computer by almost two years. No other documents from Steve Jobs time at Atari are known to exist. Sotheby’s sold another Steve Jobs document in December, 2011 for $ 1.6 million.
If you’re really feeling spendy, you can plop down $ 180,000 on an original Apple I circuit board, presumably in mint condition. Get cracking and don’t forget: Sabbe satta sukhi hontu.

Question by Justin M: I need help getting started with a robotics project. Where do I get the stuff at? I am wanting to put together a vehicle that will follow something. Are there any pre-assembled platforms out there that already have that together or where would you suggest getting parts to build one from scratch? Where do you suggest buying things such as motors, controls, ir/proximity sensors?
