Traditional burials inevitably lead to zombification. If you don’t want to risk returning as an undead walking corpse maybe you should have your cremated ashes packed into ammo and shot out of a gun. Seriously, the maniacs at Holy Smoke will load you up and send the bullets back to your family for safe shooting.
Obviously intended to compete head-on with the MacBook Air, Acer drops this little nugget into the ultra-light notebook ring.

Available later this week.
It seems like every week some camera company is revolutionizing photography again. Nikon is one of the few brands that may actually be doing it. Their latest creation doesn’t appear to have any buttons or controls, maybe what’s revolutionary is the fact that you can’t screw up the photo.
Go ahead, “touch it, love it” their website says, just don’t ask us how the damn things works. Do we look like Popular Science to you? It’s a high-tech alarm clock from award-winning designers Giebert & Funk. That’s what we know. We featured its big sister a while back and we struggled to explain that one, too. But it looks slick, futuristic, and keeps perfect time. This one comes in seven colors.
Years ago you ditched your big, boxy TV and upgraded to a flat screen. So why are your poor pet fish still swimming around in a tank from the 70s? They’d surely be happier in a sleek, new wall-mounted tank. And it’s not just good for the fishies, it’s good for you. These tanks save space, energy and feature convenient, touchscreen controls and auto feeding.
Unless you went back to shooting film, which sounds cooler than actually doing it, your vintage-retro-heritage attire is probably clashing with your camera right now. The Pentax Q Black digital camera will fix that. It looks like a 1960s rangefinder but it’s actually a compact digital that shoots a 12.4 MP file and offers a whole slew of interchangeable lenses. There, style uncramped. You’re welcome.
The rules and requirements of Swiss law make it very difficult for any watchmaker to achieve the elite status of creating truly ‘Swiss Made’ timepieces. Among other things, they must be made of high-quality Swiss materials with the case assembled in Switzerland. SoCal tastemakers Nixon Watches have now achieved the Swiss stamp of approval and damn, it looks good.
If these Beastie Boys action figures were a penny less than the $750 price-tag, it would be a little sad wouldn’t it? Like, if they were at K-mart for $6.99 they’d suck. You’d be like, damn the Beastie’s musta hit the skids. But nope, those 3 rich-ass, groundbreaking white dudes are donating the proceeds of this limited edition collection to children’s cancer charities.
The Star Wars saga is built around a whole new universe that came directly from the minds behind the movies. This new, ultra-limited edition book contains the actual blueprints for everything from buildings to vehicles to renderings of characters like C-3PO and R2D2. Blending art and design with insightful commentary from the artists, this book takes you deep into the archives of Lucasfilm’s creative process. They’re printing only 5000 of this over-sized, hardbound volume, so don’t lag.
You shoot loads of video that nobody ever sees. Probably because you don’t want to deal with downloading, uploading, editing, and compressing it before you share it. Sony’s HDR-PJ50V fixes that. It records HD video straight to hard drive and features a built-in projector, allowing you to turn any wall into an instant movie theater. It projects an image up to 60” with no TV, no cables, no nada.
