It will still be decades for real cyborgs to exist but at least Thinkgeek has thought of something that will make us a bit more "roboty" with these slippers.

Besides being comfortable, these shoes gives off a sound that resemble a robot's step kinda like in Terminator 1 after the Terminator lost its skin.

It would have been better if its Megaman blue.

Gold Rush is one of the most watched shows on TV. While everyone is amazed and curious on how gold is mined nowadays, not everyone can just place dirt on a pan and look for gold, but that has changed when they released their own Gold Rush panning.

What is different with this panning kit from the others is it is associated with the show and that it contains real pay dirt that contains  real gold. This kit gives you the satisfaction of finding real gold without having to look for gold sites and personally digging dirt. The coin might not be big chunks(or is it?) but it is still gold.

Besides the pay dirt, it also has a pan, glass vial, snuffer bottle(the one you use for gold dust/flake) and a certificate of authenticity.

R2D2 was used for navigation, for repairs and even for recording holographic messages but what we didn't know is his secret feature, the ability to measure food.

Based on the lovable robot R2D2, the body detaches into 4 measuring cups and 4 measuring spoons. Not really is it appealing, it is functional too.

Having a rifle on your back is one of the most iconic things you will see in cowboy-based/wilderness video games as well as movies and TV but carrying rifle that way(in urban cities) is illegal in most countries but this umbrella is not.

The rifle umbrella is still works like an umbrella but what is different is that the handle is changed to something that looks like a rifle stock(the blunt end of a rifle) and a trigger complete with a trigger guard. It looks so realistic that people might glance at it and maybe even call the police and if you didn't believe it from happening, this article will say otherwise.

We all know how boring phone chargers are even though they are useful but one Japanese inventor made it more interesting albeit creepier.

It is for sale but the price is unbelievable.

The new Robocup have a lot of merchandise accompanying it like the Robo Cup but its not the same as being Robocup himself.

Well only his helmet anyway. The helmet is similar to the new black sci-fi looking reboot Robocop and not the original. Just find a replica Robocop gun and you cannot fight crimes or maybe look cool(or crappy) in cosplay events.

This is toy replica so expect a toy-made quality.

In the 80's and the early 90's people would walk while carrying their boombox or their Sony Walkman but those times are long gone as technological advancement made our gadget smaller but more powerful than their predecessors but if you want a feel of what would it feel like to lug around a cassette recorder, then this Thumbs up UK iRecorder retro speaker for Iphone might interest you.

Instead of placing a cassette tape, you will instead plug your Iphone into that little slot in the middle. It works like a normal phone speaker but what is different is the button really works. You can play songs, forward and reverse and even change the volume.

It can be used for Iphone 4, 4s and Iphone 5 but sadly not for android phones.

Rumor has it that there are at least one crazy cat in a neighborhood but if you can't find one, do you by any chance own cats?

Crazy Cat Lady is an over-exaggeration of people who prefer cats instead of people for companionship, but its still quite funny nonetheless especially when you know someone who has hundreds of "cat selfies" on their phone, cat themed items on their table or a framed picture of her cats with a caption, "my family".

The Crazy Cat Lady by Accoutrements is a novelty action figure so don't expect it to be in the same quality as Batman or Spiderman. It also comes with 6 cats but the best thing about it is the question below the word action figure which is, "How many cats do you have?".

Legend of Zelda Windwlker is one of the most beloved game in the series and where that iconic Zelda boating scene came from. So iconic in fact that you it was made into a shadowbox by an artist in Etsy.

Every detail is exactly as what you see in the game. From the boat, the bird and even the insigna that is in the shield. Making it a shadow box makes the boat appear like it was really riding the waves. I am just glad that he used the HD remake as the basis to make it the colors more vivid and appealing.

Clapping is something people do when they are happy, congratulating something or a tradition on some events but there is a problem no one have noticed. Its impossible to do a one hand clap until now.

The Pachi Pachi Clappy is a device that does just that. With this device, you can clap with one hand just by pressing the button. There's even a mouth that opens and closes while it claps which makes the whole thing entertaining and creepy at the same time.

I really don't know if its a novelty or something else but I do know that the word "Pachi Pachi" is a Japanese onomatopoeia for the sound you make when you're clapping. Just check the video.

Mame Arcade machines are as large as machines you see in arcade centers but not when you see the Minimal T80s.

The Minimal T80s is a 1 foot and a half working Mame machine. It has a 7 inch screen, 8-way joystick, 4 buttons and even has a coin hole like a real arcade. Comes with several arcade emulators that is pre-loaded with thousands of games. Selection of games can be done via screen or its virtual keyboard.

This is great for those who like old arcade games but does not have enough room to place a normal-sized one in their room.

Do you remember the giant isopod plush I mentioned awhile back? I guess people these days are into weird looking animal plush toys and another one to add in this list is the Blobfish Plush by Thinkgeek.

The real blobfish was named the world's ugliest animal by the Ugly Animal Preservation Society(this is real) that is for the conservation of animals that looks ugly. The plush itself looks like the real thing but made a bit cuter if that's possible. It even reminds me of a cartoonish man that's sad about something.

Everyone knows the Nintendo of today that released weird yet interesting things for video games especially the Wii with its Wii-mote, the 3DS with its 3D capabilities and the Wii U with the gamepad that have its own second screen but these are nothing when compared to Nintendo a few decades ago that released the Virtual Boy, the Nes robot(R.O.B.) and of course the power glove.

The power glove is both the most awesome looking video game controller as well as the one of the most useless controller of all time. But that did not hinder the fascination of people with the Power Glove that it is still referenced from time to time and one case of it is this oven mitt inspired by the Power Glove.

The power mitt oven glove is being crowdfunded in Indiegogo until May 5, 2014. The glove itself looks similar to the real power glove that it even has that black wire connecting the transmitter to the controlling part of the glove.

There is something peculiar about the whole Batman signal thing. If Batman is regarded as a wanted vigilante in Gotham city, why would a police chief use it in every situation? Its something to ponder about but it is cool though and with this mini Batman signal, you can call the caped crusader right inside your house.

The Mini Batman signal is a part of a Mini Mega Kits series. Besides the signal, a small book of illustrations and information is also included. The signal is like a small flashlight with the batman logo glued on it. Its not  powerful but enough to project the graphic in a wall that's a few feet away. Besides being a good replica of the real batman signal, it can be a cool backdrop for your Batman figures.

There are a lot of Star Wars Stuff out there from toys, video games to even life-size statues and chess sets are no exception but we had to write about this one because its different.

This Star Wars chess set was made by Gentle Giant and the pieces are made of metal or tin which are called pewter figures by those in the toy industry. The white or black of Chess has turned to silver and gold with the gold representing the rebels and the silver representing the empire. Popular characters are represented. To Han Solo, Darth Vader and even R2D2 and C3PO. The chess set itself is like a table top with a chest on 2 sides where you can store the chess pieces. The death star looking graphic makes it even more appealing. But because its a unique set, its quite expensive.

Funko Rarely release their figures in a set or maybe the first time but their newest release which is the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comes with 4 figures of our favorite pizza eating turtles.

Japan has always been a country with weird stuff and the country where food comes in absurd flavors. From Coke with green tea to Pepsi with cucumber and ofcourse a world reknowned chocolate kit-kat will give weird flavors a go.

Japanese Kit Kat you can order online is just one flavor but most didn't know that there are two Kit Kat boxed called east and west and each contains 6 different flavors you can't find anywhere outside Japan. Its great as these boxes are marketed for those who wants to try these different flavors without having to buy each one online. Just buy a box(east or west) and try different Kit Kat flavor. The east has red bean, apple, wasabi, cheesecake and red chile while the west has orange, taro, tea, cookie, green tea and strawberry. The west is more "normal" and the east is a bit outrageous especially when it has that wasabi flavor.

Summer is already here or if you're in some part of the US, just a few weeks away and one problem of summer is  heat. Heat that makes us uncomfortable, sweaty and sometimes dizzy in high heat days. Drinking cold water might suffice but having a portable air conditioner will be better.

This is like those battery operated portable fans but with an added system that sucks in hot air and expels out cold air. It even cools air up to 30°F. Runs on 4 AAA batteries that will last for 5 hours continuous use. You will still need to add water every 2 hours like those cheap humidifiers but better than nothing.

If you happen to browse cooking books, recipes are always for a group or for two and that notion is somewhat depressing as there are a lot of lonely people in the world. But don't fret as this Microwave For One book might be the one for you.

This Microwave For One Book by Sonia Allison has recipes that cater to one and recipes that solely uses your microwave to cook. The front picture which awfully suggest you get in a date with your microwave is hilarious. Its a real book but more or less a joke/pun book.

Have you wondered how people of the past secure their stuff? Nope, they didn't just hide it under a rock nor their hair but a box that you need to solve first before you open.

The Japanese Puzzle box or the Koyosegi is a part storage box part puzzle. Every box is solved in a different way depending on how it was designed. This is a traditional Japanese item that was invented centuries ago. Most Boxes will have more than 6 steps before it opens. Difficulty also varies but not that hard it becomes unsolvable. It was also mentioned in one of the episode of the highly popular The Big Bang Theory Show.

The Sony Playstation 4 is the current most powerful video game console(Sorry Xbone fans) but it does not have any retro gaming spirit on it with all of its high quality graphics, flashing LEDs and that dreadful glare coming off your controller(already fixed, yey!). But at least with this Famicon or NES decal for the Playstation 4, you'll make your modern gaming console feel like its back in the 1980's again. Hurray! Or maybe you're just ashamed that you abandoned Nintendo(Wii) and want that Nintendo vibe back. Whatever the case is, this Nes PS4 is pretty clever.
