Outside of fan t-shirts, there just aren't that many ways to show off our geek side to the world. With the growing number of hand-painted sneakers on Etsy, feet can now be outfitted with any interest, whether it's sci-fi or superhero. The graphic kicks in the slideshow are so beautiful we'd almost hate to wear them. Is an at-home museum display of custom footwear too much?
A new study shows that 68 percent of the consumed US game console energy happened while in idle mode in 2010, meaning players simply walked away from the console instead of powering down after a session. While this may be more convenient for you, it's costing you an arm and a leg in energy costs; $1.24 billion total nationwide.
Even better than powering down your consoles? Unplugging them altogether to save even more dough when not at home.
Are you guilty of leaving your gaming console on instead of powering down?

First there's news of a real-life Star Trek Tricorder, and now our science fiction fantasies continue to become reality with word that scientists in Scotland have created their own version of Doctor Who's sonic screwdriver, the device he uses to scan alien beings to check their universal origins and get out of his infamously sticky situations.
Researchers from Dundee University created a machine that uses an ultrasound transmitter to rotate an object rather than just push it, similar in theory to how the Doctor's screwdriver uses sonic waves to manipulate objects. Scientists have long believed ultrasound beams could be used to lift an object but just had to find a way to bring the physics theory to life. The abilities to twist the waves used in medical ultrasound activities could make the science more effective, changing the course of surgical procedures.
The scientists hope the new discoveries in ultrasound beams will be used towards noninvasive ultrasound surgery and manipulation of cells; while Doctor Who fans like myself just want to one day pick up a sonic screwdriver at a store and move along with saving the universe.

It's your prerogative to embody your style at your wedding, even if that means taking a step over to the geeky side. We spotted these adorably geeky wedding centerpieces, captured by Hibou Photography, which give the wedding a fun and personal touch without going overboard in the cheese department.
Wondering where you can get your own TARDIS candleholders? We found something similar on Etsy for $22 a pop. And while the Cubeecraft papercrafts may take some time (and lots of bridesmaids) to put together, they are a cute addition to any tablescape. Check out a few more photos in the gallery!
