  • Alan Eustace Breaks Felix Baumgartner’s Space Jump Record (Video)

    Alan Eustace Breaks Felix Baumgartner’s Space Jump Record (Video)

    You might remember the day, about two years ago, when daredevil Felix Baumgartner broke the world record for highest-altitude parachute jump, having plummeted to Earth from a staggering 127,852 feet up in the air. As impressive as that stunt was (and still is), I doubt Baumgartner and his Red Bull backers are too happy about […]

  • TravisMathew Ping Pong+ Glass Top Ping Pong Table

    TravisMathew Ping Pong+ Glass Top Ping Pong Table

    This isn’t the first time I’ve pointed out that the usual ping pong table isn’t exactly a work of master craftsmanship. But the new TravisMathew Ping Pong+ puts most ping pong tables to shame. It’s constructed from 300 pounds of precision-cut and polished glass, a simple but elegant answer to the question, “how can a ping […]

    ‘Batman: The Animated Series’ VR Experience Announced

    The 1992 Batman: The Animated Series is one of the most revered TV shows of the 90s (which, if you’ve ever been to a party with a bunch of 20-somethings, you know is saying something).  That makes it a natural fit for some kind of revival, and DC Entertainment and Warner Brothers have announced just such […]

  • ‘The Big Lebowski Pinball': The Dude Gets A Pinball Machine

    ‘The Big Lebowski Pinball': The Dude Gets A Pinball Machine

    The Big Lebowski is one of the most beloved cult films of all time, but for whatever reason it didn’t get a mainstream pinball machine version back when it came out. That’s especially surprising because when you think about it, it’s a perfect movie to be adapted in pinball form, since The Dude is basically […]

    Parsons Pool Table From District MFG

    Are all pool tables created equal? Besides, say, quality of wood or felt involved in their construction, you might think so, but the people at District MFG have come up with a very cool variant on the pool table that would look at home in any game room, no matter how stylish (or un-stylish) it […]

  • The STIGA Studio Table: The Lamborghini of Ping Pong Tables

    The STIGA Studio Table: The Lamborghini of Ping Pong Tables

    Ping pong is not generally considered to be one of the upscale sports of the rich and famous – walk into any low-rent dorm room or sports bar and there’s a good chance you’ll find a cheap ping pong table being held up on one end by old issues of Maxim. But STIGA has come […]

  • ‘Monopoly': ‘The Legend of Zelda’ Edition

    ‘Monopoly': ‘The Legend of Zelda’ Edition

    The people at USAopoly (three guesses as to what they specialize in) have developed a new special edition of the classic Monopoly board game. It’s Monopoly: The Legend of Zelda, based on the, ah, legendary Nintendo video game series that’s been going strong since the mid-1980s. Monopoly: The Legend of Zelda allows players to do something […]
