    High atop the snow-covered peak of Everfrost Mountain the elves brew a wicked batch of grog -- a grog so powerful it can etch diamonds and make a Goron's pee burn. I'm telling you, that stuff will even put hair on an infant's chest. It's true, look at my newborn. Just kiddi... / Continue →

    Right when I thought my naked lady wallpaper was the peak of wall design, Hyposurface has to come out with a wall that can react to sound and movement (as well as spell out words, make pictures, etc.). It runs off of compressed air, and based on the video, I'd say that I need ... / Continue →
