Adventure Time is coming to the streets of Manhattan this Thanksgiving, with a Jake and Finn (plus Snail peeping around from Finn’s back!) balloon making it’s first appearance in the 87th Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. I’ll be watching. I’ll be watching while making my famous green bean and broccoli cheese casseroles. They’re secret family recipes! The secret is not washing your hands.
Thanks to Cindy, who knows all too well I’ll probably spend Thanksgiving morning outside KFC waiting for it to open.Related Posts:

This is a series of Game of Thrones house sigils, Star Wars, Futurama and Adventure Time characters all carved from crayons, JUST LIKE THE TITLE SAYS. Of course prior to my latest revision it read, ‘Naked Ladies — Boobies Everywhere!’, so I’m not sure what to think of myself. Nothing good though, I can tell you that. The crayons were carved by Tumblr-er Wax Nostalgic, who also sells the miniature pieces on Etsy for $ 20 – $ 25 a crayon. Alternatively, go buy yourself a box of crayons, a needle, and a magnifying glass and carve your own. Then after the first person you show your work to asks, “What the hell is that supposed to be?” you’ll realize you weren’t cut out for sculpting and buy one on Etsy like you should have done in the first place. Me? I’ve never carved anything out of crayons before but a desperate meal. “It’s true.” Haha — Play-Doh knows what I’m talking about!
Keep going for a complete 360-degree tour of each crayon.Related Posts:
This is an officially licensed Eleventh Doctor Mr. Potato Head toy from Underground Toys. You can order one from the BBC America store for $ 25 or Amazon for $ 34. Honestly, you can probably get them other places too, but it’s not my job to surf the internet trying to find you the best deals on toys. Can you store the Doctor’s sonic screwdriver in his ass? YOU SURE CAN, just like I do with Sharpies and my own ass. Just kidding, and if you’re anybody who knows me in real life I don’t really do that and am totally safe to borrow a pen from, promise. *fingers crossed behind back* Tehehehehe!
Thanks to bb gonzales, who always jams the wrong body parts in the wrong holes to make Mr. Potato Head look like he got all f***ed up in a Star Trek transporter.Related Posts:

In addition to demoing its Digital Paper collaboration with Sony here at SID, E Ink is showing off some new tech that’s consumer-oriented in a very different way. Its solution for ESLs — electronic shelf labels, obviously — enables real-time pricing readouts for retailers such as supermarkets. E Ink’s Spectra electronic paper display (EPD) is purportedly the world’s first to offer three pigments: black, white and, for the demo’s purposes, red. That third color can be swapped out for blue or green, but the point is to make the price placards readable — both for customers and the businesses themselves. While these panels aren’t widely adopted stateside, similar tech already has a firm footing in Europe. It’s certainly more efficient to update the same screens with new info rather than swapping in new paper signs every time the price of milk fluctuates — and it looks a lot cooler, too. Spectra will become available sometime in Q3 of this year.
E Ink’s new Aurora EPD is a little less exciting for the average consumer, but the company says this tech is another first. Able to withstand super-low temperatures (as cold as -25 C), these screens will be incorporated into wireless shelf tags displaying MSRPs in freezers and especially frigid climates. According to E Ink, Aurora’s low-temp film allows pigment to move even in cold environments, something we couldn’t exactly put to the test on the SID show floor. Still, the company seems confident in its product; it will be shipping its displays to partners starting in July.

Google’s major developer conference, Google I/O, went down this week. Was it a bit of a letdown? Probably. Did cool stuff still come out of the event? Eh? Maybe? We discuss these topics and more this week on the TC Gadgets podcast. In fact, we even had Frederic Lardinois join as a guest, along with John Biggs, Matt Burns, Jordan Crook (that’s me!), Romain Dillet, and Darrell Etherington as Bob McKenzie.
We invite you to enjoy our weekly podcasts every Friday at 3pm Eastern and noon Pacific.

This is a series of photographs from Mineralblu Photography of some Twinzik cosplayers dressed as Simon Petrikov (the future Ice King) and Marceline from Adventure Time. Touching, isn’t it? You? You should be not touching right now. Put your hands down. I SAID PUT YOUR HANDS DOWN. Why do you always have to touch everything anyways? You’re like a child. Let me guess — you also have to see what the bathroom looks like whenever you go somewhere new. Jk jk, that’s totally normal. I’m always hoping to see one of those little kiddy urinals or a bathroom attendant. Oh, like I’m the only one who plays bathroom bingo?

I never owned a Tamagotchi keychain pet in the 90′s because I’m not a girl and I was born with absolutely zero nurturing instincts. But maybe you did have one. And maybe now you want to rekindle that feeling of a new pet dying every day and piss away your phone battery at the same time. Enter the Tamagotchi L.i.f.e. Android app from Bandai and Sync Beats Entertainment. It’s a Tamagotchi keychain, but on your phone. Truthfully, I can’t even believe I’m writing about it because it’s 80-degrees outside and my body is begging me to finish work so I can go get a beer on a patio somewhere. I let myself down a LOT, but not when it comes to keeping drinking promises. That’s like, one thing I’m good at. “Wow, such a triumph of the human spirit.” I can’t tell if you’re being facetious or not but I also don’t care because it’s Friday and I am OUT OF HERE, SUCKERS. *slams laptop, waits a few minutes, then slowly reopens and keeps working* I hate the sun anyways. “But what about the beer?” The beer! *smashes laptop over knee, dives out window*
