    Seen here with an XBox Kinect for a head and about to grope a patient, 'Cody' the robot was used in a study conducted by Georgia Tech to learn about how people respond to a robot's touch. NOT WELL. Boom -- study's a wrap, let's go drink. "What we found was that how people pe... / Continue →

    DID THAT CAT TOUCH YOU?! Seen here using their high school senior portraits as a marketing opportunity, a couple show off their Thunderwear brand hidden gun holsters. Apparently they've existed forever, but this is the first time I've ever heard of them and I'm always packin'... / Continue →

    Remember earlier this week when I posted a video of Super Mario Bros. with updated sound effects and you were all like "LAME!" "donkeyballs!" "GW suuuuuuucks"? Well here's another one created by sound-designer Jake Kaufman with a bunch of other games just to spite you. YOU HE... / Continue →

    Because apparently people still send snail-mail (LOLWUT?!) Great Britain just announced a line of collectible fantasy-franchise inspired stamps for all you philatelists out there. Which, fun fact: philatelists is a fancy word for stamp-collectors, NOT guys who flick their wien... / Continue →

    This big. Around 1,300 lbs to be inexact. Plus "its heartbeat can be detected from two miles away and a human can fit in its arteries." Not only that, I heard their sperm are the size of jet-skis. Just kidding, I'd still ride on one though. MyWhaleWeb (hey mine shoots webs... / Continue →

    Submarine tanks: they just make sense. No, no they don't. But they do make claustrophobics shit their pants just thinking about them! It wasn't necessary to invent an entirely fake challenge for the basis of this concept, but Phil Pauley Interactive went and did it anyway.... / Continue →

    Note: Video possibly NSFW on account of gratuitous melon mashing (no, NOT like Gallagher). Although it is just a commercial so it can't be that bad. This is a 5:00 commercial for a Chinese corset that cinches a woman's bloobies together with a comical WOOOOOP (but way more la... / Continue →

    These are the posters for the ten Oscar nominees for best picture recreated LEGO-style. This is only two here though, so hit the jump to see the other eight. They're all pretty good. Unless you're pissed they're not actually made with LEGO pieces, in which case I'M SORRY. B... / Continue →

    Note: Full-res shot HERE. Inkcident, get it?! God I slay me. Literally, I've been sharpening my ceremonial blade all afternoon knowing good and well I'd end up saying something stupid. Anyway, for those of you with overactive imaginations, this is what 8,000 gallons of indu... / Continue →

    As you may well know, I haven't read any of the Harry Potter books so I don't know if pancakes are a staple at Hogwarts, but I kind of assume not BECAUSE PANCAKES ARE SOME MUGGLE-ASS SHIT. Real wizards and witches eat toad choads and lizard dicks or whatever. Also, since when... / Continue →

    Note: No, it's not a Moby Dick/Cthulhu lovechild (although I've heard those do exist!), it's a visual history of science fiction. Click HERE to see the thing in full-res and get your history lesson on. This is the visual history of science fiction as created by Ward Shelly (n... / Continue →

    You know what sucks about funerals? Everything. There's not a single thing I like about them. And that's not even considering how bad they are for the environment. Whatever happened to dumping bodies in a volcano or leaving them out for animals to gnaw on? You know, like t... / Continue →

    Well how was I supposed to know they were talking about the bird?! You can't blame me for thinking like a 12-year old -- IT'S MY JOB. You know who's really to blame here, right? The pervert who named all the birds. I'm looking at you, Adam! Seriously -- Boobies, Tits, Wood... / Continue →

    This is a homemade pulse laser gun built by Patrick Priebe. The thing packs a 1-kW burst that can burn through plastic, foam and thin metals. Plus explode eyeballs. Just kidding, I don't actually know that for a fact, I'm just assuming. Although I do encourage Patrick to ma... / Continue →

    This is Hachi. Hachi is an Akita/Chow mix that was badly burned in a house fire, leaving him looking like a Terminator. A TERMINATOR THAT JUST MELTED MY HEART INTO A PUDDLE. County fire fighters brought Hachi into Affordable Animal Hospital in Torrance with third-degree burn... / Continue →

    Seen here about to make two heads roll at once, a chick dude somebody demonstrates a Skeletonics exoskeletal suit. Amazingly, the entire thing is unpowered, making it far less effective at fighting Alien queens than a traditional power loader. The purpose? I have no idea. B... / Continue →

    Unless you've actually seen it like this before, in which case, real cool -- ALIEN! Quick, somebody tase him and I'll restrain him with zip-ties before he starts mind-controlling us! Aaaaaaaand I'm punching myself in the balls. Next time a little faster on the draw, bro. ... / Continue →

    I've got a bunch of videos to post and instead of posting them all separately, I'm just gonna pack 'em all in one post like a truck stuffed with migrant workers (I can say that, right?). They are, in this order (drumroll please): 1. Super Mario Bros. re-imagined with much mor... / Continue →

    So apparently ♫ Nick Nick Nick Nick Nick Nick Nick Nick Nickelodeon ♫ is rolling out a new TMNT cartoon next year and this is the first look of the re-imagined turtles. As you can see, they have some of the stupidest-looking anime eyes I've ever seen. And that's saying a ... / Continue →

    Hacking a toy's remote-control mechanism to open your blinds when you wake up in the morning: cool. Hacking a toy's remote-control mechanism directly into a cockroach's nervous system to make it turn whatever direction you want it to: WAIT -- WHAT THE F***?! By modifying the H... / Continue →

    Yesterday we took a peep at CryTek's CryEngine 3 and today, the latest version of Unreal's gaming engine. As you'll see, it looks pretty good, even more so considering IT'S A HANDHELD RECORDING A PROJECTOR SCREEN. Just amazing. The bootleg I tried filming at the adult theate... / Continue →

    The Fuego Element Portable Grill isn't your grandpa's grill. And not just because your grandpa wouldn't be caught dead carrying a 'lady-bag', but the dude did see war and you are 2,000% more effeminate. So yeah, a $150 portable grill with shoulder-strap. Sure beats karate-ch... / Continue →

    A near-mint copy of a 1962 'Amazing Fantasy' # 15 (which is no doubt the name of multiple pornos by now) was recently sold for $1.1 million by a private seller to a private buyer. OMG, WHO THE F*** COLLECTS PRIVATES?! Ya'll nasty. It's not the highest price ever paid for a... / Continue →

    Ninja Moped/Rymdreglage is back with another LEGO stop-motion featuring a bunch of classic 8-bit video games (worthwhile previous efforts HERE and HERE). That's a scene intro and some Castlevania action in the screencap there. After watching it twice I can't even imagine how ... / Continue →

    This is Geekologie Reader Greg's homemade Legend of Zelda mini-arcade. It has a Nintendo stuffed in the back. Originally Greg just sent me a video of the machine, which looks suspiciously like it was filmed in the middle of a seizure, so I convinced him to send me some pictur... / Continue →

    Canned cow farts: $8. OD'ing on canned cow farts: $64. The look on your family's face when they see the cause of death: Priceless. There are some things money can't buy, for everything else there's shit-smell in a can even more money. Tins filled with the air sucked out of ... / Continue →

    Because so many of you seem to pop raging Pokeboners anytime I post something pocket-monster related, here's a gallery of Team Rocket cosplay by skilled costumer/cosplayer/photographer Ryoko Demon. There's a bunch more after the jump, plus a bonus track of the official Pokemon... / Continue →

    This is a video demonstration of CryEngine 3, the newest gaming-engine from Crytec (the makers of Crysis -- DERDER!). The screenshots there don't really do it justice, but suffice it to say the next generation of video game titties are gonna look photo-realistic. Wow, we sure... / Continue →

    Look in the mirror. Now dig out those eye crusties. Look again. Got a witch's nose? MAYBE YOU SHOULD STOP PRACTICING BLACK MAGIC. Or buy a $140 'Omni Beauty Lift High Nose' nose straightener (AND lifter!). Soon nobody will even be able to tell you're half Jewish! *whistl... / Continue →

    Seen here looking suspiciously like krazy straws, lab-grown urethras created from patients' own bladder cells have been successful transplanted and functioning properly. Please note: this doesn't mean you should go act all loosey-goosey with your wiener-tube. It's probably st... / Continue →

    7:30, guys, really? Isn't it a little early for an all-out battle? Daddy needs his coffee and some bathroom time. This is a video from a recent episode of the Japanese equivalent of Power Rangers that quite possibly features every single Power Ranger in battle at the same ti... / Continue →

    You look great, really. The Panasonic LUMIX FX77 is a 12.1-megapixel picture-taker with a twist. Just kidding, it doesn't have a literal twist because that would make for one awkward shaped camera! Like a penis that was put on upside down but with less hitting-so-close-to-h... / Continue →

    You know how they say that couples that are together for a long time start to look like one another? I know, I thought that was an old wive's tale too (old wives talk about the craziest shit!). Anyway, with this concept in mind, an upcoming online dating service (findyourfac... / Continue →

    OMG OMG -- her nips are peepin'! Just plain wrong, or the rightest thing you've ever seen in your entire life? SPOILER: Wrong. Very, very wrong. But is that gonna stop you from dropping a "I'd let her work for my Jabba" in the comments? *shaking ball* "Outlook not so good... / Continue →

    Pac-Man, everybody's favorite dot-muncher besides yours truly (I'm a sucker for Dippin' Dots!), has always been a riddle wrapped inside a mystery wrapped inside a giant mouthy exterior. That is, until now. Game-creator Toru Iwatani has finally opened up about the toothless gl... / Continue →

    Bootyful, get it?! Me neither, my dogs told me to type it or they'd pee on my favorite rug AND THEN THE WHOLE ROOM WOULD COME UNRAVELED. Lebowski reference -- count it. This is a pirate-themed bedroom designed for a six-year old who may or may yes be spoiled rotten. It can ... / Continue →

    This is a little informative video about the incredible effect placebos can have on a patient's mind. It's pretty interesting, particularly if you're not familiar with placebos. Me? I once got an entire frat wasted off non-alcoholic beer to the point several dudes started pu... / Continue →

    You know that movie 'Up' by Pixar? The one about the crotchety old man and chubby boyscout? Yeah, I haven't actually seen it (somebody said it'd be too sad for me AND I'M DELICATE LIKE EXPLOSIVE GEL). Well, to promote their upcoming television series 'How Hard Can It Be?', N... / Continue →

    This is a robotic tattoo machine designed by Chris Eckert (WTF, BROSKI?!) that does all the work for you. INCLUDING PICKING A DESIGN. But not just any design -- oh no. Auto Ink is a three axis numerically controlled sculpture. Once the main switch is triggered, the operator ... / Continue →

    Alien bacteria? Possibly. Noodle puking noodles? Probably. A NASA scientist who's dreamed of having sex with aliens since adolescence claims he's found FOSSILIZED ALIEN BACTERIA in a rare form of meteorite. This discovery may or may yes lend credit to the Scientologist bel... / Continue →

    Should've called the Maytag Man. Get it? I'm gonna punch myself so hard! Clearly disregarding Captain America's hatred of illicit substances, 30-year old Colorado meth dealer AARON CASTRO spent all the proceeds from his lucrative drug dealin' on comic books. Like, $500,000 ... / Continue →
