Star Trek Captain’s Chair on Ebay

Posted in Sci-Fi by Darrin Olson on March 3rd, 2014

Star Trek Captains Chair ReplicaNow, before you get too excited this chair is actually a replica of the original Star Trek’s Enterprise-D bridge captain chair. Apparently the original one was a little too worse for the wear and was recreated to go on tour to fan conventions with the rest of the set that makes up the Enterprise bridge.

The captain’s chair does have a list of celebrities that have sat in it since its creation including some Star Trek actors, Stan Lee and Weird Al. The chair is being sold because Huston Huddleston, the man who spearheaded the project to rebuild the Enterprise bridge, was not completely happy with some details of the chair’s creation and is having a new one built.

Still, you have a chance to get your own 98% correct Star Trek Enterprise captain’s chair replica on Ebay …

Very Convincing Fake Nintendo DS Lite Purchased On eBay

Posted in Nintendo DS by Reuben Drake on May 12th, 2011

That DS Lite above looks pretty genuine right? That’s what the buyer thought too when he purchased it on eBay. When he opened the package he knew something was wrong. The corrugated cardboard box was the first suspicious giveaway. Then on the back of the box there was pixelated English text.

When he opened the package he found that yes it was a fake, however, it still played DS and GBA games in their proper slots. The surface of the system has some small pockmarks, which is not up to Nintendo’s high quality assurance standards and the inner bezel is also discolored.

Posted in Robots by Shane McGlaun on September 27th, 2010

People put some weird stuff on eBay and some of the stranger items are fake. If you are a loaded geek that likes space and robots, you need to head over to eBay and bid on an authentic robot hand developed for NASA.

The hand was made on a contract for NASA along with another prototype, it and the one on auction are the only two ever made. The hand was built by Mark Rosheim in the 90’s and wears a custom-made glove constructed by the firm that makes space suits for NASA.

Iron Man Xbox 360 on Ebay

Posted in Xbox 360 by Conner Flynn on August 23rd, 2010

We’ve seen plenty of painted and modded Xbox 360s in our day, even an Xbox 360 laptop, but until now we’ve never seen what Tony Stark’s Xbox 360 looks like.

And thanks to Zachariah Perry Cruse, we now know. It looks just like his armor. The design student spent his summer vacation creating his very own Iron Man Xbox 360. It’s not the slim 360 console, but it has a 120GB hard drive and an HDMI socket. Why not place a bid?

New eBay app for iPhones can list products lightning fast

Posted in iPhone Accessories by Conner Flynn on March 30th, 2010

These two new apps for either sellers or those who want to buy/sell locally are pretty cool. The Classifieds app uses the iPhone’s GPS to remember your location and will only display items near you based on what you’re searching for.

The second app is also free and is being called a “power tool” by ebay. The item being sold can be listed in under 60 seconds, which is incredibly fast for sellers. Put these two apps in your ebay arsenal and you’ll be happy you did. Now if only ebay would lower their fees, you might make some decent profit from that rare and ugly vase you just listed.

Xbox 360 laptop mod on eBay for $2,000

Posted in Xbox 360 Elite by Conner Flynn on March 17th, 2010

Now this is no Ben Heck masterpiece, but modder TheTwoJ’s Xbox 360 laptop is still pretty sweet. And if you want to get your hands on it, you can bid for it on eBay for a starting price of $1,950.

That’s less than it cost the modder to make. He spent over $2,000 and 650 hours making the X-top and it has been as it’s been tested for problems for the last three months. It’s made from an Xbox Elite Jasper system, with a 120GB hard drive and 17-inch Gateway monitor. There’s also an Xbox Live camera in there, and it even comes with 12 months of Gold Live membership, a wireless 360 controller, Xbox Live headset and a custom power supply.

Geek offers broken stair from Apple Store on eBay

Posted in Apple by Shane McGlaun on February 22nd, 2010

I think Forest’s mom was right when she said stupid is as stupid does. It’s pretty stupid to abscond with a 250-pound glass stair from the fancy staircase in the flagship Apple Store on 5th Ave in NYC. How exactly you would get it out of the store is an interesting question.

An auction over on eBay has said stair for sale by the guy who admits to nabbing it before the Apple workers could throw it away. The guy says it was cracked when a bottle was dropped on it and replaced. Said stairs allegedly cost $10,000 each.


Most realistic Back To The Future DeLorean ever could be yours

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on December 28th, 2009

This makes my eyeballs very happy. This is the absolute most realistic BTTF DeLorean we have ever seen. It’s probably the most realistic one that exists. Period. And it’s on eBay. So you could own this baby. Starting Bid is $89,000.00. You might recognize the house too as the photo shoot took place at the Pasadena home that was once Doc Brown’s.

This 1981 DeLorean DMC-12 was built by Gary Weaver, a Back to the Future fan who is also apparently the authority on DeLorean time-machine replicas. He also owns BTTFparts.com, which I’m sure helped tremendously. Even so, this car took six years to complete.

Xbox 360 laptop sports retro style

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on December 27th, 2009

Xbox 360 laptop? Normally when you hear about such a thing you think Ben Heck. Amazingly enough, this is the work of someone else. It is the creation of CollinE from Ben’s forums.

We love the red and black color scheme and the giant X on the top lid. This 360 stays true to the original console in most respects, even the “wind tunnel” noise generated by Collin’s five fans. If you want to try your hand at this, a video tour of the hardware is available.

eBay app hits BlackBerry App World

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on November 27th, 2009

eBay app hits BlackBerry App WorldApple’s AppStore and Nokia’s Ovi Store aren’t the only ones with good stuff. BlackBerry’s APP World also has a few good things. Here’s one. If you do a lot of online shopping, eBay has designed an application for BlackBerry handset users.

It’s a full feature application designed to also accept PayPal payments. It will also allow buyers to search for items and track their status so they can see where they stand in their current bidding war. Users can also schedule auction-related reminders in the BlackBerry calendar. This app is available as a free download from App World.

Motorola Droid Prototype on Ebay?

Posted in Motorola by Conner Flynn on November 22nd, 2009

Motorola Droid Prototype on Ebay?Looks like Ebay’s latest interesting thing is this Motorola Droid prototype, if turns out to be the real thing. The seller says that the phone is a “limited edition,” and one of only five prototypes produced. Not that we automatically take this guy at his word.

However there are some differences that indicate that this phone differs from the standard Droid. Like the keys being silver instead of gold, the bezel is chrome and the LED lighting on the buttons is enhanced.


iMac Hamster Cage on Ebay

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on September 15th, 2009

If you want your own hamster living in luxury, this original blue iMac cage is available on Ebay. It can be yours for $350. Great way to force your hamster into Apple loyalty.

Pyramid shaped Dream Car 123 on eBay

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on June 17th, 2009

Dream Car 123: Pyramid power is backYou might remember the Dream car 123 from a while back. Well, it looks like the father and sons project has hit eBay. You might remember that they were trying to raise money because they needed like $40,000 to build a Mark 2 prototype. So they put the pyramid shaped car on ebay.

Currently it’s at $100, it’s reserve not yet met. What, nobody wants a pyramid car? What’s wrong with you people. Bid. Keep the dream alive. I personally would like to be driving a pyramid by no later than 2015.

Last photos of Marilyn Monroe on auction at eBay

Posted in eBay by Shane McGlaun on May 7th, 2009

mornoepic-sbI’m not the classic movie and old music kind of guy. As classic as I want to go are films from my childhood like Star Wars and Goonies. I never really understood the allure of old Hollywood types like Marilyn Monroe and Frank Sinatra, but to some these types of old school stars are legends.

Everyone knows about the tragic and untimely death of Monroe. Some of the last known photos of the star are up for auction on eBay and were taken only five days before her death. The photos come from the collection of musician Buddy Greco.

Gun camera for book depository type photography

Posted in Cameras by Conner Flynn on January 28th, 2009

Gun cameraLets be clear. No way in hell is this gun-camera making it through airport security. That should be obvious. It’s the kind of gun camera that you hide away in a duffel bag until you reach the top floor of a vacant building. Then, when in position, you assemble it on the spot. You may or may not be able to get all your shots. That’s what the second cameraman on the Grassy knoll is for.

Actually this was used by reporters during the Vietnam War. The camera is mounted on a rifle butt with a black case and 5x lenses. It’s a gadget that belongs in a museum as it is part of camera and American history.
