Its not the first time video game were remade as shadow boxers(Link Windwaker) but this is more nostalgic, invoke more emotions because of the scenes captured eternally by featuring them in a shadow box.

Some scenes made into shadowbox was a streetfighter fight between Ken and Honda even jumping in the air to evade Ken's Hadouken, Kung Fu Nes game as well as a Chrono Trigger campfire scene which is my favorite in the lot.

Sadly, this is just a showcase project with the creators not willing/wanting to sell because of copyright issues.

The Hendo hoverboard works by creating a magnetic field between the board and the surface which will of course make your board, float. It also comes with this cool blue LED light below which makes it more futuristic.

However it is not as perfect as you have seen in the movie as the ground needs to be metal for it to work as well as that thing looks a bit heavy so manueverability suffers however it really hovers even in an angles or high speeds. But being the world's first hoverboard, any imperfections is negated as it is a freaking hoverboard.

Cardboard is not usually the first material you think of when making a table but apparently, were wrong.

Refold's cardboard desk is portable and they say is made of recyclable materials. The table can be assembled in less than 2 minutes but still has strength to hold the weight of the person and that is pretty incredible.

However one table is in the $115 range which is a bit pricey for a table that is made of cardboard.

They are in Kickstarter and you can still pledge for this item

Another great product by Thinkgeek, this chocolate mold includes different kids of zombies in different positions with one even in crawling position like that half zombie in Walking Dead. Besides zombies, there are cemetery stuff like tombstones, coffins and even skulls.

One drawback is because most of the molds are unique, it will take a long time to make a horde of walking zombies.

Bicycles are good but unicycles are better especially if its as awesome as this SBU V3.

The SBU V3 is closer to the Segway than the unicycle used by Charlie Chaplin. It has an electric motor that can travel up to 10 miles in a single charge. It is also self-balancing that uses leaning motion to achieve the direction you are leaning to just like a Segway. While it may resist minor bumps in the road, it is still a unicycle so holes as well as obstructions will still topple you over even with their self-balancing system so care is still advised so something like George Bush in a Segway tipping over will not happen to you.
