Darth Vader USB Car Charger: Luke, Your Father Is Now A Charging Device

What happens when the Death Star is blown to bits? Well, anyone that survives will be out of job and the same goes to Darth Vader – if he didn’t die. In fact, not only did he not die, he managed to find himself in more useful situations, such as help make bread crispy toasty, keep your room humidified, dries your hair, and now, the Lord Sith can even charge your smartphone and tablet as you travel in your vehicle – thanks to his incarnation as the Star Wars Darth Vader USB Car Charger. Like the R2-D2 variety, this USB car charger is designed to fit inside your vehicle’s cupholder and hooks up 12V power adapter aka cigarette lighter socket found in your automobile.

Cosy Up With Star Trek: The Next Generation Uniform Bedding Set

You can’t call yourself a true trekkie if your humble abode or man-cave does not look like the interior of the U.S.S. Starship Enterprise. Or maybe not cos’ not everyone is that rich, but at least, you will have a bunch of stuff that you uses daily to remind you of your all-time favorite sci-fi show. You know, stuff like Star Trek TOS Captain’s Chair (maybe even an inflatable one), auto sliding doors complete with ‘swoosh’ sound effect, a bar fridge that looks exactly like the Borg Cube, or maybe a Phaser that’s actually your TV remote? If you already have all those checked, then here’s the Star Trek: The Next Generation Uniform Bedding Set to add to your Star Trek-ish pad.

Here’s A Smartwatch Of Sort In Fallout 4’s Pip-Boy Form

This faithful replica of the post-apocalyptic game, Fallout 4, won’t help in the game, but it serves a greater purpose – a purpose which we are incline to think as a smartwatch. And no, it is not a smartphone case; that will be super awkward and painfully impractical. Like I said, it is a smartwatch of sort; it syncs with your trusty smartphone via Bluetooth and it has its own integrated screen that displays in iconic monochrome green, plus onboard software and other necessary hardware to enable it to do what a smartphone can do, which includes, take and place calls, access contacts, text messaging, and dig into your audio files. The only thing it can’t do is playback videos; otherwise, this is pretty much the communication device you will need in a fallout, or maybe not.

Star Wars Geeki Tiki Is If Mos Eisley Is A Tiki Bar And Not A Cantina

If, in the Star Wars universe, Mos Eisley Cantina was a tiki bar instead, then perhaps you could choose to drink with Boba Fett, Chewbacca, Darth Vader, R2-D2, a Stormtrooper, or even Yoda. Oh, wait. Those heroes and villains won’t sit side-by-side with you to down a glass of exotic extra-terrestrial cocktail, but it could be serving whatever cocktail you fancy totem-style ceramic mugs with the image of the said characters. Pretty cool, right? Well, except maybe for Artoo, cos’ we thought that was a little off. Perhaps it is the lack of the iconic dome head and the signature blue accent that makes it less convincing. Other than the astromech, the rest are pretty dope. Continue reading Star Wars Geeki Tiki Is If Mos Eisley Is A Tiki Bar And Not A Cantina

R2-D2 Desk Lamp Shed Some Light So You Won’t Be On The Dark Side

Star Wars fans who think you have everything Star Wars, think again. I bet you are missing a light of sort, which if it is indeed the case, then the R2-D2 Architectural Desk Lamp will help to complete your all-thing Star Wars set up. There’s something a particularly alluring about this adorable lamp based on the screen-famous droid from the sci-fi franchise, though we must stress that it wouldn’t be the case if its a Darth Vader’s helmet because he belongs to the Dark Side. Get the picture? Clearly, little Artoo here is designed to shed some light so you won’t fall for the Dark Side. Continue reading R2-D2 Desk Lamp Shed Some Light So You Won’t Be On The Dark Side

50 Years Of Doctor Who Music Packed Into A Set Of Metallic Silver Vinyl

Though Doctor Who has been around for ages, the series’ soundtrack is not a much talked about thing. I guess the sci-fi theme and actions just overtook it, but there’s no reason the official soundtrack should not be part of any hardcore fans’ Doctor Who shrine. Well, it’s never too late. Instead, spending hours digging the deep space of the Internet for cassette tapes of the 60s, here’s the collection to rule them all – Doctor Who: 50 Years in the TARDIS Vinyl Box Set. Continue reading 50 Years Of Doctor Who Music Packed Into A Set Of Metallic Silver Vinyl

Batjamas Lets Super Heroine Wannabes Dream Of Sweet Gotham Dreams

We haven’t met any superhero yet, so we do not know what’s their state of mind, such as if they wished for sweet dreams or do they rather not have any dream when they are off-duty. We really don’t know, but one thing for sure, mere mortals like us who dream of becoming a superhero, or in this case a super heroine, can dress simply garb in this Batgirl Brushed Terry Lounger with Cape and be ready to drift off to la la land, or Gotham, depending on what’s your poison. So, for ladies who fantasized becoming Batgirl, this is the perfect PJ for you – after all, Batgirl most likely operates in the cover of the darkness. While she goes around busting crime and kicking criminals’ butts, you can rest soundly and dream of sweet Gotham dreams. Continue reading Batjamas Lets Super Heroine Wannabes Dream Of Sweet Gotham Dreams

Star Trek Ships Calendar: A Fitting Merchandize To Celebrate Star Trek’s 50th Years In 2016

We’d think Trekkies have come to love Star Trek for its sci-fi element, more than the drama and if so, apart from the intriguing and some pretty outrageous but no less delightful tech (which some may have somewhat came true, if we may add), the spaceships are probably the next most drool worthy thing about this iconic sci-fi franchise. The spaceships, which form the backbone of the franchise, capture fans’ imagination the world over. I am sure Trekkies know what I am talking about and if you fall into this group of Trekkies (or just a serious sci-fi nut, really), then we have no doubt that the Star Trek Ships of the Line 2016 Calendar is right up your Starfleet alley.
