Insane Bandai 'Diorama' speaker


File this one under ‘crazy’ and ‘Japanese’. It’s a pair of speakers, 2x1W, with a mounted diorama of a Tokyo street scene slapped on top of it. It’s so wonderfully tacky that I’m actually rather fond of it.

Want one? No? Okay. Well, if you know anyone who does, then tell them that it’s limited edition – just 2000 are being made – so get moving sharpish. It’ll cost them ¥198,000 (£1,640). That’s what’s known in the trade as ‘too much’.

Lunatic creates real-life 'Lancer' rifle from Gears of War


You’ve got to love insane Americans living in the woods. This one has managed to combine a chainsaw and a gun in a real-life approximation of Gears of War’s “Lancer” assault rifle. He claims it’s a “Firearm Mounted Anti Zombie Device”. We’ve got a video of it tearing up pumpkins right after the jump, and there’s plenty more on the forum link, over the jump.
