Hello Kitty Join Forces With PAC-MAN For Mobile Game and Merchandises

If you are a huge fan of the mouth-less Japanese cartoon character Hello Kitty and also happen to love the classic arcade game, PAC-MAN, well then, Sanrio, Inc. and Bandai Namco has some good news for you. The two Japanese companies has announced at San Diego Comic-Con that the super adorable pop icon and the first video game hero will come together for what we thought was an unlikely collaboration. For starter, the PAC-MAN mobile game will get a limited time Hello Kitty themed update, available from now through to August 19 on Google Play and Apple App Store.

Heinz, I Hate You For Putting Ketchup On Hot Dogs. How Could You???

You know what’s the cruelest thing a person can do to hot dog lovers? Making them eat hot dog with ketchup, AKA tomato sauce. To even harbor the thought of topping hot dog with ketchup amounts to blasphemy, at least it appears to be the case of Chicago hot dog lovers. For the record, I am not too enthusiastic about having tomato-based sauce on hot dogs too. Apart from caramelized fried onions and lettuce, mustard should be the only condiment that should be on top a hot dog. Period. However, Heinz, the ketchup maker, is not quite please at Chicago hot lovers’ anti-ketchup-on-your-hot-dog sentiment and set out with a marketing campaign to win them over. Continue reading Heinz, I Hate You For Putting Ketchup On Hot Dogs. How Could You???

Disneyland Paris To Get Marvel-Themed Disney’s New York Hotel

Disney’s biggest cash cow is probably not the surprise hit Frozen, or any other of its animated flicks. If anything, it would be Marvel and Star Wars, which now proves to be the two most worthy acquisitions the entertainment company has ever made. And I am not going to lie: we never loved Disney this much before. Disney has taken, in particular, Marvel to a height previously unthinkable and it is continuing to do so by giving fans more tangible experience outside of the theaters. The Marvel-themed Disney’s New York Hotel is one such endeavor. Continue reading Disneyland Paris To Get Marvel-Themed Disney’s New York Hotel

Hasbro Unveiled 12-inch Marvel Legends Series Black Panther Figure

Over the weekend, Marvel’s Jesse Falcon made an announcement that should have Marvel/Black Panther fans very excited. Falcon revealed the Marvel Legends 12-inch Black Panther Action Figure at the D23 Expo. Now, the thing is, this action figure is from toy maker Hasbro and so, one should not expect a boat load of details like you would get from collectibles from Hot Toys and the likes. Despite that being the case, the first images seem to point to quite a reasonable amount of details. Based on the upcoming Black Panther solo movie starring Chadwick Boseman as the T’ChallaBlack Panther, the toy version the king and protector of Wakanda is showed garbed in his vibranium-weave suit complete with the menacing retractable claws, locked and loaded.

Drone Racing League Built The Fastest Racing Drone, Made World Record

It is official. The world’s fastest drone is the RacerX, built by Drone Racing League (DRL). RacerX set the Guinness World Records for the Fastest ground speed by a battery-powered remote-controlled quadcopter as it swooped back and forth across a measurement course of 328 feet (100 meters), clocking in a mind-bending average top speed of 163.5 miles per hour (263 km/h!). This record-making quadcopter was the handiwork Ryan Gury, DRL’s Director of Product, who was backed by DRL’s very own team of expert drone engineers.

Cabin Sleeper Bus: Sleep Like A Boss When Getting From LA To SF

The quickest way to shuttle between Los Angeles and San Francisco is hopping onto a plane which will take an hour twenty or so, but that’s not including the jam you will most definitely encounter when trying to get into LAX and lets not forget about the security checks and stuff. You could choose to take a train which will take a whopping 8 hours, or you could drive, which will put the stress on you for nearly six hours. Until Hyperloop realized, those are pretty much your alternatives, or so we thought. As it turns out, there’s an ‘aircraft’ on the road that will take you from LA to SF, stress-free, in a comfort that you can only imagine previously. Continue reading Cabin Sleeper Bus: Sleep Like A Boss When Getting From LA To SF

Freaker Sneaks NES-Themed Jordan Comes With Cartridge-shaped Tag

Nintendo Entertainment System, or NES for short, had a fair number of basketball game titles, but even if it did, does it warrant a NES-themed Jordan? Maybe not. But whether or not it does call for a NES-themed treatment on a pair of kicks largely known for its basketball lineage, it does not matter because sneaker customizer Freaker Sneaks have already made some. The last we seen from this talented sneaker customizer is the SNES version, which was undeniably cool – especially to folks who grew up in 80s and 90s playing NES, but this latest one feels different. It is, how do you say? Complete? I don’t know why it feels complete to me. Continue reading Freaker Sneaks NES-Themed Jordan Comes With Cartridge-shaped Tag

Time Lord Turns Time Lady Because The 13th Doctor Who Is A Lady

Well, it looks like UK’s obsession with gender quality/diversity has found its way to long-running, popular television series Doctor Who. How so? Well, whether you like it or not, the next 13th Doctor Who is going to be played by a woman. Yes. You heard that right, mate. A female Doctor. While female medication practitioners aren’t new, a woman playing the fictional Time Lord is the first. You could a say it is a milestone, you know, if you are into all the gender equality. Then again, I am not mega fan and so, whoever takes on the character does not bother me a bit, though I cannot say the same for hardcore fans who have been following the Doctor since like forever. Continue reading Time Lord Turns Time Lady Because The 13th Doctor Who Is A Lady
