    The See-Saw Bookshelf is exactly what it sounds like: a giant see-saw for you to put your books on. Although I'm not sure what kind of person could actually put this in their home. I guess it's targeted at all the people out there who happen to live in a playground.... / Continue →

    In case you haven't heard, the iPhone comes out today. And people are losing their god damned minds. I don't want to brag but I already got my hands on three. Don't worry though, I ate them. So, you know, it's all good.... / Continue →

    I don't know if it's the absolute best license plate ever but it's definitely in the top ten. As is my license plate, which is actually just a puppy I stapled to my car. Source... / Continue →

    From The Sun: Dad was a zebra stallion, mum was a horse ... so their odd-looking offspring is known as a zorse. The animal, called Eclyse, can be seen at a safari park in Schloss Holte-Stukenbrock, Germany. I had sex with a fish once. The results weren't nearly as pretty. NO... / Continue →

    YG Acoustics has created their line of Voyager loudspeakers which come in at $100,000 per pair. And even if you have the money (which you don't) you probably can't get them because they're only available to music and film "industry leaders." Each speaker is made of cast aluminu... / Continue →

    If you find yourself in the market for a super ugly cell phone holster, check out the StrapYa Mobile Protector. It costs $25 and looks like it was built out of junk some guy found in his garage. I mean cell phone holsters are nerdy enough, but this is pushing the limits of huma... / Continue →

    I'm not sure why, but William Optics has teamed up with Ferrari and created their new Ferrari Visio binoculars. The waterproof, 25mm binoculars come in a red carbon fiber body and have 8x magnification with fully multi-coated lenses. And I guess they go really fast. Or somethin... / Continue →

    The Human CD Holder features human figurines positioned to look like they're holding up your CDs. The guy seems pretty weak though, since the holder is pretty small and can only fit a few CDs. Unlike me. I'm strong. I can hold, like, ten at a time.... / Continue →

    Some awesome folks in Japan have created this replica of a motorcycle engine that also happens to be a USB hub. Turn it on and the thing rumbles and makes noises like an actual motorcycle engine. And because that wouldn't be weird enough on its own, this thing is also a USB hub... / Continue →

    This guy built a homemade Terminator out of some random junk. Although it doesn't really look like a Terminator, so it's really more of a robotic junk person than anything. I think it takes a little more than gluing pieces of metal together to be considered a Terminator. Trave... / Continue →

    Why buy a jeep when you can just build one out of bamboo? This thing was built in the Philippines and was originally used for personal use, but has begun being used for important officials who visit the province. Because nothing says class like a car built out of vegetables. S... / Continue →
