Things We Saw Today: Poe Dameron-Themed Shoes Redefine “Fly Kicks”

  • Awesome Games Done Quick has raised money for plenty of worthy causes, and they’re back at it again tomorrow, Sunday, January 8th. You can catch all the stunning speedrun action over on their Twitch channel. (via Polygon)
  • Were you lucky enough to grab an NES Classic when they went on sale last month? If so, you’ve got a pretty solid gaming vessel on your hands, and thanks to some ROM hackers, you can jailbreak it and upload whatever game you’d like to play onto the tiny system. Nice. (via BoingBoing)
