    For $250,000 you can own your very own rocket belt and finally be able to live out that James Bond fantasy of yours. You know the one. Where you strap on a rocket pack and then end up in the hospital after flying straight into a building and blowing up.... / Continue →

    Weta, the special effects group that worked on The Lord of the Rings, is selling anitque-styled sci-fi ray guns for $621. Sadly, they don't actually work and only 500 of each style will be made, although if they actually did work they'd probably cost around $50 million each. Wh... / Continue →

    That's not a super gigantic, very poorly made Nintendo DS. Oh, no, my friends it is not. That is a cake. The edible kind. A couple more pictures after the jump. ... / Continue →

    Roger Ibars has designed a gun operated alarm clock that you have to keep shooting until it turns off. Right now it's just a hack made from a retro gaming light gun and a vintage digital clock radio, but I would buy this in a second if it became retail. You'd get the satisfacti... / Continue →

    Here's a list of unintentionally funny comic book panels. Although I suspect many of them were intentionally meant to look unintentional. How could you have the Joker talking about a "boner" for an entire paragraph and not realize it would be hilarious?... / Continue →

    Lord knows why, but Reef has created a sandal which can hold your booze. The Dram Sandal costs $45 and the heel of it holds up to three ounces of your favorite liquid. Can you imagine using this thing? People would see you pouring liquid out of your shoe and then drinking it. ... / Continue →

    This is some clever advertising being used by the Red Cross. You won't get the full effect unless you're standing at a very specific spot, but by golly if you're in that spot prepare to be blown away. By me. Because that's where I store my dynamite. A couple more pictures af... / Continue →

    Designer Nanette Lepore has begun testing interactive mirrors in her department at Bloomingdale's in New York. The mirrors are high-resolution digital screens that project digital outfits for potential buyers. The resulting image is then forwarded to a webpage where friends or ... / Continue →

    Designer Arik Levy has created this polished steel rock table, which is exactly what it sounds like. And I bet using it feels like you're in the Stone Age and the future at the same time. Which is perfect, because I've always wished I was a time traveling caveman. Source... / Continue →

    People dressed in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle outfits were seen walking across the upper level of the George Washington Bridge in New York yesterday morning, most likely a publicity stunt for the new TMNT movie opening Friday. Either that or they're real. Just like I knew deep ... / Continue →

    The video game seems so much more fun, but if you're really into Mario Kart you can get this Mario Kart DS Race Track. It looks pretty neat, but only has two vehicles (Mario and Yoshi) and the track looks super duper basic. It's only $29.99 though, so set it up in your apartmen... / Continue →

    I don't speak German so I really have no idea what's going on in this video, but it's allegedly of a semi-automatic banana peeler. The video doesn't actually show any peeling but I'm assuming it works? Why am I assuming this? Because the video would be too stupid to comprehend ... / Continue →

    XCMLive is selling a chrome replacement shell for the Wii called the Chrome I-Case for $37.00. It apparently just snaps on, and looks like it cost $2,000 so that's cool. Plus if you ever lose your mirror it's nice to know you've got a really really shiny Wii lying around. One ... / Continue →

    The Wave Chaise is a multifunctional chaise longue concept designed by Roberta Ramme and incorporates everything a person would ever want in the comfort of a chaise longue. It has a built in TV, DVD player, CD player, phone, study, internet, etc. The only thing I see missing i... / Continue →

    If you've got a ton of spare cash lying around you can visit Adopt A Squid and adopt a giant stuffed squid. $399 will get you the 7' one (above), but if you're serious about your adoption of fake giant squids you can spend a whopping $1800 on Anthony, who comes in at 15' (below... / Continue →

    This is a fight sequence from the movie The Protector featuring Tony Jaa (of Ong Bak fame). It was shot using a stedicam and lasts almost 4 minutes with no cuts and no edits. Plus I'm pretty sure two or three guys actually died while filming this because they were either thrown... / Continue →

    For some reason that doesn't make any sense at all, Kevin Federline has launched his own search engine called Search With Kevin. Apparently he felt Google just wasn't doing it well enough and thought he'd throw his hat into the ring. The page offers prizes everytime you search ... / Continue →

    This is a Maserati Quattroporte covered with 1,763 lbs of shattered glass. It was put together by Italian artist Luca Pancrazzi and is currently outside the Moscow Museum of Modern Art welcoming guests to the second Moscow Art Biennale that runs through April 1st. If this was... / Continue →

    Aurora is designed by Kyeok Kim and creates a pattern of light on the body as decoration. The light is controlled by rotating a ring (which contains a magnet) towards the main jewelry piece. This is a beautifully executed concept. At least better than my version, which was ... / Continue →

    This planetary orbit clock uses rotating planets to tell the time. Each ring represents an hour, minute, etc, and the only way to tell the time is from looking at it from directly above. It costs $35 and looks really cool, but I'm pretty sure I'd never ever be able to actuall... / Continue →

    The Sand+Time watch is a digital watch that would combine a regular digital watch with the classic egg timer hour glass in digital form. It's just a concept, but I like the idea of combining old and new technologies. Which is why I glued my computer to my guitar. Ahh, inventing... / Continue →
