If you have OSX try starting ‘TextEdit’ and then start typing:
On the third ‘/’ your app will crash.
Update: This seems to be a bug in a lot of OSX applications – just try entering ‘File:///’ in the url location in your browser (the capital F is important) – my browser, Chrome, will crash instantly. Crazy bug.
Here’s a custom 12th century helmet made into a trash can, if you feel like getting a a bit medieval. It’s made out of cast resin finished in faux metal style. It measures 9″ x 10″ x 12″ (23 cm x 25cm x 30cm) and weighs 6 lbs (2,7kg). It can be yours for $60 over at thinkgeek.
For $50 you could get yourself a 1/4 scale Gollum / Smeagol replica figure. It’s fully articulated and features 25 points of articulation. It’s quite detailed with liver spots on skin, scrappy hair, wrinkles, rotting teeth, etc. The replica figure can balance in his signature crouch without falling and measures roughly 10″ (25 cm).

The iTypewriter by Austin Yang is a fully functional typewriter module for the iPad. Very geeky and it looks like there’s probably only one of them in existance. Anyway I thought it was a quite cool project, check it out over at Austin’s site for more images and a video.
These soaps are of course intended as a gift but if you intend to actually use any of them, I’m pretty sure that they actually works as a soap as well. Choose from replica soap handcontrols modeled from Sega Mega Drive, SNES, NES, XBOX 360 and PS3.
