For example, Tony Hawk: Ride uses a plank for a controller for all kinds of skateboarding action.

You have to admire the people who make laptops. Every time you use one, you prominently display the logo of the laptop maker every time you use it.

Washing Machine project lets it Twitter when finished

by Ally

Everyone has dealt with those days where you’re running around and doing other things so much that you forget all about the load of laundry you put into the washer or dryer.  Then you come back and they’re either overly wrinkly or mildewed.  Now luckily dryers do have buzzers, however, if you have a house where the washer and dryer are away from the main living area, then that’s really …
