    Inspired by Jules Verne's classic novel, the Nautilus home theater is truly a work of art. It was designed by Dillon Works Inc. for Dallas-based dentist Randy Moran and his wife. It looks unbelievably awesome and is nearly 900 square feet. I just showed it to my girlfriend and ... / Continue →

    I never had the chance to play Sinistar in the arcade, but I certainly played the hell out of it on Sega Genesis, and that mother could send shivers down my spine. Well here he is in cake form, and he's looking just as scary as ever. I remember him yelling at me to "Run, cowa... / Continue →

    16 year-old high school student Marco Facciola built a bike out of wood. I'm talking every part is made out of wood. Pretty damn impressive. "Marco had to complete this as a non-academic project for his International Baccalaureate, and inspiration came from his grandfather, ... / Continue →

    I used Sharpies all the time -- for labeling, drawing, and scribbling on my passed out girlfriend. In a shocking annoucement Sharpie has decided to allow you to customize your own pens with personalized message, clip art, and font choices. Why? The hell if I know, I don't wo... / Continue →

    It says so right there in the item description: "A life size, REAL Energy Sword exclusively from Lionheartsrealm!" So it's real after all folks. I can't believe all this time I thought it was just a fictional weapon in a video game! How stupid of me. I do wish he would have... / Continue →

    Dan Bloom thinks the world is screwed. Who is Dan Bloom you ask? Some scientist or expert on global warming? No, he's a writer that doesn't own a computer and lives in Taiwan teaching English. Proving it doesn't take a scientist to believe Mother Earth is packing up her bag... / Continue →

    Phil Davis is an inventor. An inventor with a dream. An inventor with a dream of a microwave in the bathroom. Davis said he came up with the idea for the I-Wave when he was thinking about using a hot towel on his face while in the bathroom, and asked himself why a microwav... / Continue →

    Batfan06, a modder, went and made a computer case out of a 1/6 scale Tumbler Batmobile RC car. It looks good. Real good. Nice and well lit. I like lights. The dude obviously has mad skills and I give him props for such a wicked looking case. It's certainly a hell of a lot ... / Continue →

    A week or two ago someone sent a tip about the LEGO Star Wars Steampunk contest, and I forgot all about it. So whoever that was let me know, and I'll give you the proper credit you're due. Anyways, there's a contest going on over at the FTBD (From Bricks to Bothans) forums un... / Continue →

    The Icon Watch costs about $82 and looks all blocky with its 8-bit styling. I like it. Nice and simple. Really takes me back. Back to the day when I invented a 4-bit watch and was doing great until some company trumped me with an 8-bitter and stole all my damn profits. Tha... / Continue →

    We've posted different jetpacks here before, and let's face it, jetpacks are awesome as hell. We also posted the Vampire 2 Wingsuit, which was pretty sweet in its own way. And now comes a sort of hybrid of the two, the Personal Jet Wing. Basically you jump out of a plane w... / Continue →

    The 500XL Earbud Speakers were designed to be 500 times the size of normal iPod earbuds. I think they're just a conceptual product design by Fred & Friends, and thus don't exist in the real world yet (and may never). According to the company: How great will these look on you... / Continue →

    There are people out there that want to look as stupid as possible. Thankfully for these freaks there is the Medusa hat and goggles from Oakley. The ridiculous hat goes for a paltry $500 and the bug-eyed goggles for $250 -- a steal. I can't imagine who in their right (or wro... / Continue →

    Well we've posted other FPS gun-mice in the past, and now here comes another. With a more futuristic design than the other, this bad boy is just the thing you need to bust a cap in someone's ass with a rail-gun, ion-cannon, AWP, or whatever the hell else suits your fancy. The ... / Continue →

    You stuff the one of the open ends of the Exhaust Burger into your tailpipe, and then drive around while the heat of your exhaust cooks a burger. I know exactly what you're thinking -- "why didn't I think of that?". I'll admit I was a little miffed I didn't come up with it eith... / Continue →

    These Din-ink pen cap utensils recently tied for first place in Designboom's 'Dining in 2015' contest. They're made of biodegradable materials and are pretty clever. These would be great for some people at work, but personally I'm not a big fan of using utensils. I like to e... / Continue →

    Apparently this is a legitimate film being made about Mac lovers and is not just a jab at crazy fanboys. It's definitely worth checking out. And I'm going to preface this with the following statement: I don't have anything against Mac fans at all. I like Apple. My wife swe... / Continue →

    I touched on this packing tape back in October, but now SUCK UK is selling the stuff, in both traditional LCD and Pixel varieties. A mini roll will set you back £5 (~$9.80) and the big ones go for £7.50 (~$14.70), which is pretty freaking expensive for some damn tape. Still... / Continue →

    Finally, bionic vision. I've been waiting for this technology forever, and apparently it's right around the corner, waiting to pounce on me like a mugger. We have a group of electrical engineers from the University of Washington to thank for this awesome step into the future... / Continue →

    We posted the 56 Geek Poster awhile ago, and here comes something similar -- the League Of Cliche Evil Super-Villains t-shirt. As you can see it's a shirt featured cliche super-villains. You've gotta admit, it would look good hanging on a rack at the thrift store. They run $... / Continue →

    In today's delectable news, a flickr user that goes by 'hello naomi' has officially become a cupcake goddess according to the Geekologie writer. Asked for further comment the writer responded "I'd eat the hell out of those things." They do look amazing don't they? This woman... / Continue →

    Mark Kelso, a LEGO brick artist, spent nine months making a huge spaceship. And it's actually a scale model of General Grevious' ship the Invisible Hand from Star Wars Episode III. It's 73 inches long, weighs about 30 pounds and, according to my calculation, has betwen 6 and ... / Continue →

    So what we've got here are some relatively good looking skull speakers. As is evident from the photograph they glow blue when you turn them on and look like a cyclops with half its eye in its nose. As is not evident from the photograph, they cost $71.75 a pair and there's a m... / Continue →

    Tom Price, a designer from London, has made a line of chairs by melting different plastics with a seat-shaped mold. We posted a picture of the rope chair back in June, and here comes the rest of the series. As you can tell it looks like a ball of PVC tubing with a turd-like s... / Continue →

    Someone went and made a Companion Cube computer case from Portal. It looks good and is small (20cm). It's used as a web browsing and music computer, so there isn't anything too fancy on the inside. Unlike the doughnuts I had for breakfast, which were chock full of fanciness.... / Continue →

    This video is pretty old, but I'd never seen it before so I figured there were probably some of you out there that haven't either. It's a video of a guy flying an R/C helicopter and doing the craziest things I've ever seen with it. I thought it was fake at first, but it's rea... / Continue →

    The LINDO laptop holder was designed by Henning Kunow to hold a laptop while you're sitting, standing or walking. It's utterly ridiculous and I definitely want one. Just think about it -- it's perfect for those times when you, you know, need to, uh, damn I got nothing. Hip ... / Continue →
