WHAT YOUR ORIGAMI HAS BEEN MISSING

Origami is cool. You can turn ordinary paper into little cranes. If you’re really good at it, you can make really intricate pieces of art, but really, who has the time? (And we assume the path to origami mastery is paved with papercuts – ouch!) Have you seen the reports on self-folding origami technology coming out of MIT’s Tangible Media Lab and North Carolina State University? Impressive stuff. No papercuts involved.

Papertronics are paper toys with paper electronic circuits in them. The Lunar Landers come in a pack of three: Spaceboy, Alien Girl, and Tabula Rasa. Tabula Rasa is blank and can be designed by you. Turn them into cool accent lights, party lights or fun additions to your desk. When the spaceships are placed a particular way, they light up. Turn them another way, and they turn off. They come pre-cut so you can fold them all by yourself for a fun DIY electronic origami project!

Batman: The Animated Series – Gotham City Under Siege

Batman: The Animated Series was a game changer in terms of both storytelling and artistic direction. So it only seems fitting that IDW Games should give it an epic board game, befitting its status. Say hello to Gotham City Under Siege.

Fallout: Wasteland Warfare Two Player Starter Set

Some of us here at ThinkGeek World Domination HQ haven’t been able to play Fallout since good ol’ top-down FO1 and FO2 because of stupid motion sickness. And while we’re waiting for our pre-ordered Citroen glasses from Boarding Ring to ship (yes, we are that geeky), it’d be nice to be able to have our faces eaten by super mutants just like the rest of our friends.
