    Remember the female version of Master Chief? She was hot wasn't she? Well how about this sexy little number, it doing anything for you? If so, please don't write about it in the comments section (oh what the hell, it's Friday -- go for it, sicko). Well AnimeAmy recently won... / Continue →

    Jake Von Slatt is a man who loves steampunk. This is one of his most recent creations, an all-in-one 24" widescreen with computer packed in the back. It looks good (reminds me a lot of this bad-assery). If you're a steampunk fan be sure to check out Slatt's Steampunk Worksho... / Continue →

    Warning: This is kind of risque. If your children are reading Geekologie over your shoulder then you should probably let them so they grow up to be the awesomest kids ever. Tanya Devereaux is some chick that claims she'll do every virgin that takes an oath of internet neutral... / Continue →

    This is some sort of news report about an underground automated bike storage facility in Tokyo. For a single-use fee of 100 yen (about $1) or 1,800 yen for a monthly pass, customers roll their bikes onto a platform and use a control panel to have them whisked away to a rack wi... / Continue →

    Sometimes it's a good idea to take a break from the inevitable human destruction by robots and read a beautiful, heartwarming story about a balding penguin. And this, my friends, is that story. Pierre, a dapper 25-year old African penguin at the California Academy of Scienc... / Continue →

    Looking for a nice geeky ring to seal the deal with your special someone? How about these Cat 5 rings? No? Okay, just thought I'd throw it out there. A wedding set for the unconventional! The female ring has a choice of four opaque colors: turquoise, white, orange or black... / Continue →

    I know I've been going off on a "robots are gonna kill us all" tirade lately, but quite frankly, that's because they are. So I'll just offer this last piece of evidence and let it rest for awhile. Introducing the forest fire prevention robot by Jordan Guelde (that sick, robot... / Continue →

    We've seen several different gliding apparatus here on Geekologie, and we've even posted the Gryphon before. So why again? Because many of you probably haven't seen it. Plus it's been updated yo. Now the stealthy looking bastard is down to 30 pounds, can carry 100 extra in ... / Continue →

    These Kondo KHR-1HV robots are all rocking lasers for a world domination training exercise poorly disguised as the Blazer robot tournament in Fukuoka City, Japan. The little guys ran around shooting each other and pew-pewing to their mechanical heart's content in a little mock... / Continue →

    Remember the two Russians that were convinced the CERN Large Hadron Collider would tear a hole in the fabric of time so we can all travel to the future and ride hoverboards or the past and have sex with dinosaurs? Well now there are two gentlemen fighting a legal battle in Haw... / Continue →

    Everett Bradford is a boy. A boy with a dream. A boy with a dream of shooting flames out of his wrist. Well, Everett made his dreams a reality by making, what he likes to call, THE PYRO SYSTEM! It's basically a can of aerosol fuel rigged up to a barbecue ignition system str... / Continue →

    When I first got a Wii I spent over an hour making a perfect representation of myself in Wii Mii form. Needless to say, it's fugly as shite. But if your Mii turned out better than mine you can now get it made into a real sculpture. You just send Miisculptures $75 and a pictu... / Continue →

    So Space Invaders is celebrating its 30th anniversary and there's a new game coming out. Now what better way (besides getting a themed tattoo and legally changing your name to Space N. Vaders) to let guests in your home know that you love the game than sporting these wicked wa... / Continue →

    The Fat Lamp (aka the Slow Glow Light) is filled with fat. When you turn it on the bulb inside melts the fat, rendering it more transparent, and the light gets brighter. Each one cost a staggering $774, so you're definitely better off stealing fat from a liposuction clinic (a... / Continue →

    You know, sometimes you have to do something you don't want to and "take one for the team". Like when you have to Photoshop pictures of a dude's ass cheeks in such a way that they don't blatantly look like a bare buttocks at first glance. HAHA! That's right -- it's a dude's ... / Continue →

    Know anything about growing meat in a test tube? If so, bring it to market and PETA will award you with $1 million. I was so excited when I heard about the contest that I couldn't sleep. I stayed up all night in my basement laboratory banging test tubes together. But alas, ... / Continue →

    Barney Jones is the founder of the Jedi Church. One afternoon he and his cousin were doing their typical thing, you know, filming themselves playing with lightsabers in the yard, when Arwel Wynne Hughes jumped over the garden wall donning a black garbage bag and cape. He had ... / Continue →

    So you got a flat tire, what do you do? Call AAA for help? Make out with your passenger? Cry and punch the steering wheel? Or do you get out there and change the damn thing? You know, changing a tire really wouldn't be that bad if the jacks that come with cars weren't the ... / Continue →

    If there's one thing I learned repeatedly while growing up it's that a dog can and will bite your genitals if you have a piece of bacon in your pocket. So how's a boy supposed to get his daily bacon quota without rocking a pork pocket? Simply -- with a bacon scarf. Each is m... / Continue →

    This is a short video of a cat "playing" a mini-theremin. I wrote playing in quotations because he pretty much sucks. I mostly posted this because I thought the cat was cute. Which he is, isn't he? I like how he sits up on his back legs. I was almost convinced it was a per... / Continue →

    This is a wicked Spider-Man inspired tattoo that somebody got. It was made to look like the guy's skin is ripped and he's really Spider-Man underneath. There's a picture after the jump with his arms done in a similar fashion. I would have gone for the full-body suit myself, ... / Continue →

    The Robocup German Open is in full effect (April 21-25) and it's every bit as frightening as you'd expect. The only thing I found comfort in was that the robots are clearly too stupid to distinguish a soccer ball from an orange tennis ball. Those stupid bastards. We're still... / Continue →

    Remember the "human-like" versions of Mario and Homer from a while ago? Well pixeloo is at it again, this time with a smoking hot Jessica Rabbit. There, I said it. She's not real and she's hot. Can you see what I'm doing now? I'm doing that thing that the cartoon wolf does... / Continue →

    These pants were designed by Erik De Nijs and are cleverly called "Beauty and the Geek" jeans. I see no beauty, just a kid that looks like he's playing with himself. Built into the knees are a pair of crotch rocking speakers, around the back you have the added convenience of ... / Continue →

    Dean Kamen, who invented the Segway and clearly loves himself some denim, has created a new water regenerator. It's called the Slingshot (?) and has no filters whatsoever. It works via vapor condensation distillation and runs on, get this, cow fudge! Not only can the thing c... / Continue →

    We've seen promising holographic technologies here at Geekologie before, but nothing with the sexy interactive potential of this thing. The people at LM3Labs have created a hologram technology that can be controlled by hand, arm and (presumably) penis gestures. The system is ... / Continue →

    Ermine and Ramazan Çalçoban were a Turkish couple going through a separation. Like any normal unhealthy couple, they continued to harass the shit out of each other via text message. Until one day Ramazan sent a text message that, thanks to his cell phone not having a "close... / Continue →

    Well folks, it's been nice knowing you, but we're officially as good as dead. The robot apocalypse is upon us and our new overlords will not stop until every last one of us has been dragged in and chopped to bite sized pieces by these monstrosities. Currently "owned" by the T... / Continue →

    If you can make a NES controller mouse, and stuff a whole system into a shoe, then stuffing one into a game cartridge is clearly the next step (don't question my foolproof logic). And that's exactly what someone did (well, they actually put a Nintendo on a chip (NOAC) in there... / Continue →

    I love LEGO and Star Wars, so one would think that I'd find this LEGO Star Wars pen set ($25) bonetastic. Well that is not the case. But mostly because I have a problem with the advertising. Each of these pens are a completely personalized writing instrument, since you use... / Continue →

    Surgeons have successfully implanted "bionic eyes" (similar in design to this, but not this) in two blind patients, in an attempt to restore some of their vision. The device -- the first of its kind -- incorporates a video camera and transmitter mounted on a pair of glasses.... / Continue →

    Here at Geekologie we've seen all kinds of different vending machines. We've seen ones that dispense soccer balls, pizzas, people, pot, other drugs, and even small children. Well now we're adding shoes to that list. As someone who has woken up shoeless and in a ditch on th... / Continue →

    This F-111 hit a pelican in New South Wales, Australia while doing over 340 MPH. As you can see, it's not looking so hot. "The plane was flying at around 3,000 feet during a test bombing raid when a pelican collided with the fiberglass nosecone and was then sucked into one of... / Continue →

    This actually took place in 1999 (old!), but the video has just recently surfaced via The New Yorker. It's a time lapse of Nicholas White stuck in an elevator in the McGraw-Hill building in New York for over 40 hours. White went outside for a cigarette, came back in, and cho... / Continue →

    If you haven't already heard, the David Ortiz jersey that some asshat buried under Yankee stadium in an attempt to curse the team is for sale on eBay. It's currently at a whopping $70,200 with a little under 3 days to go. The good part about the auction is that 100% of the pr... / Continue →

    Remember all the unusually themed knife blocks from awhile ago? Well in that same vein come these hooks. Each one is a polyurethane and steel hanger that screws into the wall to give the appearance of a knife stuck there. While cool, designer Tianyi Chang is only making 50 o... / Continue →

    I've been itching to live on the moon for as long as I can remember (~ last Wednesday). So boy was I excited when I learned that scientists have figured out how to grow plants in moondust. All it took was some special bacteria that helps transfer nutrients from the soil (if y... / Continue →

    This is a Corolla with a custom NES controller engine block cover. It looks good and I wish my piece of crap Metro had one. That would easily double the car's value. Now if entering the ↑ ↑ ↓ ↓ ← → ← → B A Konami code gave you 30 gallons of free gas, then we... / Continue →

    This is a teaser trailer for Tetris - The Movie. I'm not sure if they're really going to take it any further but if they do I will definitely be the first in line ride a roller coaster instead. The trailer was made by Black20 (I typically put all my money on red) and features... / Continue →

    Drink a lot of hefeweizen? Like the flavor a lemon slice adds to your beer? If so this product isn't for you, because it's just a piece of molded plastic with an LED inside. It sits on the side of a glass and run $3.30 for a pack of three. They're guaranteed to make your ne... / Continue →
