OptimusTaxi-Thumb

Transformers Age of Extinction is opening in theaters on June 27th and they’re running a pretty slick promotion with Uber that could get you a ride with Optimus Prime. They’ve already been to Dallas and Phoenix and will be in Los Angeles on the 21st, but in case you missed it, here’s how it all went down. Check out these three fans who get a ride from Optimus to get pizza, hot dogs, and even attend a movie. Their reactions, and Optimus Prime’s responses to their questions, are priceless.

Sure, The Doctor may have his sonic screwdriver, but we 21st-century humans have something almost as good: smartphones! The only drawback is that you have to charge them frequently. But now Doctor Who fans can charge their smartphones, especially their iPhones, with this cool Doctor Who TARDIS iPhone Stand. It’s laser-etched, and is made from blue acrylic. It also holds a notch for a charger. Added bonus: you don’t need The Eye of Harmony to power this TARDIS! You’re welcome.

You know what I love about giant robots? Everything. They’re the embodiment of ion cannon-wielding awesomeness, which is why I was pretty stoked when I came across this mecha-cell holder from MechWorld. Get this: It’s a mini-mecha that’s designed to hold your cellphone and it shoots heat-seeking missiles and it looks cool! It’s available on Etsy, so you can start building your own iPhone/mecha army today.

Yes, you read that right. You’re looking at a USB charger that is designed to look just like Darth Vader’s lightsaber. This is an officially licensed product with a 2800 mAh battery capacity and it even comes with a micro USB cable. There are also red LEDs to replicate the blade and four along the handle to show the current power status.

Each time a new phone comes out, especially an iPhone, people get in line to buy it because they must have the latest and greatest toy. They’re just like robots which makes this video perfect. Watch the cute little robots all line up to get the iDiot 4, then watch things go pretty much the way they do in the real world, right down to silly apps and pictures of cats.

thor_battery_charger_1-620x362

Who knew that Thor’s battle hammer Mjölnir was so versatile? Aside from being able to smash foes into oblivion, the hammer can also charge a cellphone too!

Well, quick correction: I’m not sure if Thor’s hammer can do all that, but this new Thor-themed hammer features a battery hidden inside the head that’s designed to charge almost all of your standard electronic devices.

The hammer features two hidden USB ports that can provide 2.1A of charging power for your phone or iPod. When you swing the hammer it also mimics Mjölnir when it’s in action: LEDs embedded in the head light up and a speaker pumps out a pretty impressive thunder noise that will surely scare anyone away from your cubicle or office.

I’ve never really thought about what HTC stands for until this hilarious commercial starring Robert Downey Jr. coming up with all sorts of possibilities. From the humongous tinfoil catamaran to the hot tea catapult, the ideas just keep getting crazier and by the end of the commercial, you’ll still have no idea what the heck HTC really means.

There are all sorts of cute little phone docks out there, but this one is the most impressive we’ll likely ever see. It was built by George Dinkel and took him six months of work. The iReliquary 1.0 includes rhinestones, polymer clay and gold and silver powder. It’s also a Bluetooth sound system. What’s he going to do when Apple changes they shape of their phones again?

Universal Uclick has had online access to many classic comic strips but now they’ve partnered with GoComics to create a free GoComics mobile app that gives readers access to its catalog of comic strips, comic panels and editorial cartoons. This free app will include comics like Peanuts, Bloom County, Doonesbury, Garfield and even Calvin and Hobbes.

Though this is the first place to legally read Calvin and Hobbes online, it is unclear whether or not Bill Watterson gave his blessing. As most fans know, Watterson has historically been steadfast objecting to commercialization of his work. On that note, The Far Side is notably absent due to Gary Larson’s continuing determination to avoid online publication of his work. He writes:

These cartoons are my “children,” of sorts, and like a parent, I’m concerned about where they go at night without telling me. And, seeing them at someone’s web site is like getting the call at 2:00 a.m. that goes, “Uh, Dad, you’re not going to like this much, but guess where I am.”

Well, whatever happens, the good news is the app is free and the catalog seems to be growing. Currently it offers users “20 years of back issues of comic strips,” with the ability to bookmark and share favorites. The bad news may be that I’ll be killing my iPhone battery daily.
