X-Wing fighter mailbox

Posted in Star Wars by Conner Flynn on August 15th, 2010

There are Star Wars fans, and then there are Star Wars fans who bring a bit of the Star Wars universe into our own. Craig Smith is in the latter group as evidenced by his X-wing mailbox. It may lack an astromech droid, but since it doesn’t actually leave it’s post I guess it doesn’t need one.

Pretty awesome. The force is strong in this one. I would personally make a tie fighter and put it right next to this one for the junk mail.

Android GPS Navigation X-wing Edition

Posted in Android by Conner Flynn on August 12th, 2010

Obsessed with Star Wars? So is Flash-developer Christopher Caleb, who has come up with an Adobe AIR-based app for Android that lets you use an authentic looking X-wing targeting system on your Android device to navigate to your destination.

Sure, you won’t get all the features of your typical GPS apps, like maps, points-of-interest etc, but you will see your destination ahead of you as if you were in the Death Star trench. It also features plenty of Star Wars sounds to complete the experience.

At last, you can fly your own X-Wing

As a kid(Or even an adult) how many times have you tried to use the force to lift your X-wing toy as if you were Yoda extracting it from the swamp. Sadly, your efforts always fail so you heat up another hot-pocket and get back to your nerd message boards.

Well now you really can control your own X-wing, even if it isn’t with the power of your mind. The RCX4 Star Stryker Helicopter is a remote-controlled X-Wing with four helicopter propellers on board. It can hover in place as well as fly in all directions. But sadly I see no room for Luke’s action figure.

X-Wing hot dog griller puts a whole new twist on the Death Star battle scene

X-Wing hot dog griller puts a whole new twist on the Death Star battle sceneDamn. Look at that X-Wing’s guns. Kind of makes the whole flying through the Death Star trench scene a tad wrong. What you see here is the $20 Weenie Wing Commander. It’s mission in life is to keep your your hot dogs from burning. It avoids copyright violation very skillfully. Put a bunch on the grill and re-enact all your favorite scenes in glorious pork.

The only thing missing here is a spot to park your astro-pork droid. So, you’ll just have to cut the tip off a wiener and put in place where R2 goes. The Weenie Wing Commander. Protecting hot dogs at geek barbecues everywhere next summer.
