Boogie Dice cram a vibration motor, rechargeable battery, tilt sensor, microphone and 3 LEDs into a 25mm package—for reference purposes, 16mm is the most common dice size, and 25mm is roughly 1″—that weighs 15 grams. Why do you need all of those cool pieces of technology in the dice you’re going to use for Monopoly, Craps or the Bots Battleground game the creators made exclusively for the dice? Because they roll themselves. Boogie Dice are sound activated, so they’ll start to “Boogie” when you clap your hands, snap your fingers or bang the table. They can also be programmed to: act as a timer to indicate the end of the turn, randomize for an extra level of surprise, or activate as soon as they’re picked up. They’ll roll for up to 30 mins continuously and can be recharged in an included charging station that also doubles as an arena. These dice are so cool they’ll actually make you want to play Yahtzee.

Retro-Video-Game-Puzzle-IF2

We’ve long been obsessed with Things Organized Neatly, the Tumblr, Instagram account, and book that displays collections of items arranged in pleasing ways. It’s the reason we’re hard at work on this puzzle. When finished, the puzzle depicts a collection of retro video games and gaming systems aligned ever so perfectly. Each is made in the USA by the New York Puzzle Company and features original photography from artist Jim Golden. At 1000 pieces, it will put you to work for some time, but when you complete it you can use some puzzle glue and frame it on your wall. Out of chaos comes order, right?
