Mario Quilt

The Mario Quilt is designed by Crafster and has pixelated type icons of Mario, Bowser and others sewn in to it. It looks 8-bit style and 1.5 inch squares make up the 8′ x 8′ sized quilt.

Shadow Projector

Shadow Projector
The Eveal Shadow Projector creates the impression of sunlight streaming in to your house by projecting an image of the out doors (looking through a window) on to any internal wall. The image is animated and the branches of the tree’s sway in the breeze. However, it does cost $380 which seems a bit crazy to just change the ambient mood of your room.

Test Pattern Clock

It seems like a good number of years have passed since the test pattern was used on TV. Due to advances in equipment such as digital signalling, better televisions and most TV channels broadcasting 24 hours the requirement for test pattern is just not there any more.

The test pattern clock is built to bring back the memories of late night TV. Luckily the annoying beeeep is not present in this clock. I have to admit that it looks fairly cool clock although I think they should have used the UK’s most popular test pattern which is Test Card F. Surely all you from the UK remember the young girl (Carole Hersee) playing noughts and crosses with a clown puppet. Here is a quick random fact… Carole Hersee is supposed to be in the Guinness book of Records as the person who has been on TV the most (estimated 70000 hours, or 8 years) although they wont put it in because no one can beat it :S

So go ahead and pick up one of these Test Pattern Clocks to bring back the memories.

Money Miser

Money Miser
Money is here for quite a bit longer yet and therefore, we all need a money miser. Most of you will have a ton of loose change kicking around your pocket or in a shoebox somewhere in the house. What the Money Miser does is sorts out all your coins in to neat wraps. To get it working you just put some empty wraps in the bottom of the machine and chuck your coins in the top. The Money Miser then sorts through them to put everything in order nice and cleanly.

Money Miser

Money Miser Example

The Money Miser costs $14.95 for the machine it’s self, or $19.95 with a box full of money wraps.

Pacman Ghost Pillows

Pacman Ghost Pillows Front
These pillows have Pacman ghosts on them. They are pixelated to give them the old 8-bit effect and come in various colours. The whole set costs $90 (£45 in the UK) with which you get 4 pillows of Inky, Blinky, Pinky and Clyde (I never knew they had names). It appears from the listing that when you flip them over they go in to the mode where you can eat them and they look like this below.

Unfortunately there is only 1 of this collection in stock at Etsy. Hopefully they will sell more in the future.

Sun and Moon Jars

Sun and Moon Jars are a unique way to create some nice warm lighting in your home. Each jar features a solar cell with rechargeable battery which can power the low power LED lamps for several hours. When placed in sunlight the batteries will charge allowing the glow to shine at night. The jars are frosted allowing the light to be diffused and look more realistic. There are no switches or controls for the lamps as they feature light sensitive switches inside which switch the LED’s on and off when needed. However, if you really really want to switch them off then you can flip the lid and switch them off manually. If the battery gets worn out over the years then you can replace it with another rechargeable AA battery.

The Sun and Moon jars cost $29.99 – $34.99 each and are available below.

Crazy Cereal Bowl

Although not too gadgety, I know every reader here enjoys a nice breakfast and this is the reason I post this 😉 Random-Good-Stuff describes it as Breakfast 2.0 and it certainly is different to other cereal bowls you have seen before.

The concept behind this revolutionary breakfast bowl is forehead-slappingly simple. A removable shelf covers 70% of the bowl’s base, holding the cereal above the milk. All you have to do is eat your cereal from the shelf-less section of the bowl where the cereal and milk meet, pushing the cereal in as required. Brilliant!

Galaga turns in to a Quilt

Galaga Quilt
If you remember computer games from donkeys years ago you will probably know of Galaga. It was a great game which ran in 8-bit glory. If you are not that old then you should still remember it as it was often bundled in to Namco games such as Ridge Racer when loading up on the PS1.

– Approximately 60″ square. 60×60-pixel resolution.
– Made from 100% cotton fabric and batting (Z80 processor not included).
– Machine wash cold, tumble dry low, and avoid diving enemies at all costs.
– Pieced and quilted by machine in smoke-free, pet-free, and geek-friendly home.
