Even if you haven't played Valve's excellent puzzle shooter, you've probably run into characters from the Portal universe somewhere, whether it be a homicidal robo-ball or an irresistibly adorable cube. Portal's zany cast makes for some good video gamin', and awesome gifts to boot.
Don't judge me. Everyone back in the '90s had a Tamagotchi digital pet. I wasn't alone; you probably did too (and you know who you are). 78 million of the needy, pooping pixelated pets had us catering to their every need as we put down our analog pet rocks to go digital. Now they're back.

If you grew up in the 1980s, here's a cute video shows every toy you ever dreamed of owning in just two minutes.
The era of printing your own plastic action figures, human veins, and even food is finally upon us. After years of prototyping, the cost to build an affordable 3D printer has come down enough so that even regular guys like you and I can bring one home — with a little saving, of course. We scoured Maker Faire NY 2011 this past weekend and were surprised to see that so many small startups were pushing their 3D printers — wowing kids and adults left and right. Here's our pick of the top six 3D printers available to take your cash that are worthy of it to boot.
3D printers have been getting cheaper and better, but I've never really seen why they'd be useful. But the Origo 3D printer, which is designed to turn kids' drawings into toys, shows the potential that this tech has.
How many of us will ever be able to afford a Lamborghini Aventador? I'd wager, not many. Now, how many of you think you can afford this toy model of a Lamborghini Aventador that's worth 12 times the cost of the real life-sized car? Yep, this is one excessive and expensive toy car.
Congratulations Sean Kenney, you win this week's bragging rights for building this incredible 10-foot tall Chicago Trump International Hotel and Tower out of Lego. This isn't just a Lego brick for brick replica of The Apprentice reality show celeb's Chicago digs. Kenney went all out, even building the exterior's "glass reflections" right in. This is taking Lego building to the next level.
