    Ross Nanotechnology's NeverWet spray is a can of magic. Oooooooor silicon-based superhydrophobic spray that can make liquids "shoot off" anything it's applied to. And speaking of hydrophobics: come on, what do you have against gays?! They're people just like you and me exce... / Continue →

    This is a short video of Chubbs the pug dressed up in her homemade wampa costume. It's worth watching for the first five seconds alone because SHE IS COMING TO ATTACK! The remaining 30-seconds are pretty much just her showing her ass to the camera LIKE MOST DOG VIDEOS. *ahem... / Continue →

    This is a video of amateur coin-stacker Tai Star's fifth attempt to balance 3,000 coins on a single dime. And he succeeds, managing to stack a total of 3,118 onto the pile before calling it quits. Not bad, Mai Tai, but I once stacked a dozen books on a passed out roommate an... / Continue →

    This is the $250 Blacktop Grill-Fryer. It combines the cooking power of a grill, griddle and deep fryer in a single unit. Did I mention there's a warming plate? Because there's one of those too. Now you can keep your hands toasty while you grill and deep-fry in the middle o... / Continue →

    This is a chunk of pork that's been pressed into the shape of Babe and sold as a 'Mini Piglet'. Presumably to remind you you're eating more than just ground-up assholes. Pork Molded into a Piglet Is Disgusting and/or Awesome [gizmodo] Thanks to Barry, who has a hard time eat... / Continue →

    Is that a flamethrower in your pocket or is your penis on fire for no reason? This is a flamethrower in the form of a handgun. So it's small. There's a video of the thing failing to melt snow off the top of a grill (try the propane tank!) after the jump, as well as a link to... / Continue →
  • November 11, 2011
    This is a butt-ass quality video of Canada's equivalent to the Loch Ness Monster, Ogopogo. Or...something -- it looks like two logs to me. Of course, it's hard to tell WTF you're looking at because Shaky McNeedsaDrink here can't hold a camera steady for shit. Listen: if you ... / Continue →

    Snakes on a plane? Because the worst f***ing ideas are usually the ones to see the light of day (see: nine out of ten recent movies), low-cost/comfort/convenience airline Ryanair is not only considering removing the bathrooms from its planes for extra seating, but offering ha... / Continue →
  • Yesterday's colorful-yet-gothic poster and this first trailer's eagerness to boast of coming "from the producer of Alice in Wonderland" really makes it seem like Universal would love for us to believe Snow White and the Huntsman is a fanciful morsel left dangling off Tim Burton... / Continue →
  • November 10, 2011
    This is the Nokia HumanForm, a nonexistent phone that, despite the name, doesn't look anything like a person. It's just a concept by Nokia, presumably because they f***ed up and ordered a bunch of oblong parts from a supplier and plan on passing them off to consumers. I'm on ... / Continue →
  • November 10, 2011
    This is a $17,000 pair of 'Bionic Bopper' boxing robots from (SURPRISE!) Hammacher Schlemmer that you can climb inside and duke it out with a friend...or enemy. Although why you'd want to fight a friend is beyond me. *beating roommate with a Rock Band drumstick* What? We f*... / Continue →

    If you haven't already seen this, watch it. It's a video of a guy riding a mechanical Yoshi trying to collect Mario coins on the side of the street. And, from the look of dude's coin collecting abilities, it's fairly obvious he stole the previous 89 from somebody else. Damn,... / Continue →

    Guys: they're always trying to hookup with the ladies. Me? I don't have to try, I get enough. "Heeeeeeeelp meeeeeeeeeeee." UGH. Really, hand -- in front of all my friends?! One more outburst like that and I'm gonna touch the oven. Enter a sad and lonely 19-year old Arizo... / Continue →

    Oh man, the fear we could strike in my neighborhood with this thing. In other hovering news, this is an immaculately conceived restored 1965 Marine Corps Huey gunship for sale on eBay. You and I are going to buy it together and take turns going on neighborhood patrol. Oooooo... / Continue →

    This is a video from France of a 230-ton Airbus A330 "hovering" in midair. Because if there's one thing that's terrifying to watch from a window-seat, it's the plane not moving. Jk jk, it's a wing breaking off, but still. The phenomenon has an easy explanation: the Airbus ... / Continue →

    Taras Lesko went and built himself a 7-ft tall Gundam model out of paper. Paper, man! It still boggles my mind we can cut trees so thin. I guess they use like a giant version of one of those meat slicers from the deli. One time a friend tried to tell me paper's actually mad... / Continue →

    Guy: I AM Ezio Auditore. Girl: I'm smexy! Is Monteriggioni like macaroni? When you get right down to, there are very few things I need in the world. The love of a lady with knockers bigger than mine (shit, or smaller -- just no penis) and a cool $10-million and I'd be set. T... / Continue →

    Apparently a crap ton of you are more sensitive to light than we had realized and the white background has caused permanent damage to your retinas. Well we've heard the cries from your darkened caves, and we're working on a dark-themed version of the site. We also shrunk the po... / Continue →

    Dialug is a conceptual electrical outlet that's rotatable so you can either set a plugged-in appliance for constant power or a limited amount of time. Can't fall asleep without the light on but want it to go out after you're under to save energy? I'm with you. Ghosts, right?... / Continue →

    'FINISH IT', get it? Like how it says 'FINISH HIM!' in the game! Speaking of finishing things -- you think a parent has ever had to tell a child to finish their pizza the way they do with vegetables? I doubt it, kids will finish some damn pizza. Also: picking their nose aft... / Continue →

    Seen here looking suspiciously like a futuristic TNT detonator, The Airdrop is basically a dehumidifier for use outdoors that can pull water from the air, and use it to water thirsty plants. Which reminds me...*opening closet door* Have you learned your lesson, fern?! "Waaaa... / Continue →

    Produce human blood, or giant rice monsters? Only time will tell. Chinese scientists at Wuhan University have successfully embedded human genes into growing rice, allowing the plants to produce Human Serum Albumin, the protein that makes up the majority of human blood "plasma... / Continue →

    Cats: they're supposed to stand on all four feet. Granted sometimes they'll sit on three with a back one in the air and lick their genitals in front of company, but that's because they're terrible hosts. Dammit Archimedes -- at least set out the hors d' oeuvres first! Recent... / Continue →

    Because the government knows something we don't and isn't telling us, the first nationwide test of the emergency broadcast system is slated to go down at 2PM eastern today, simultaneously playing on all entertainment outlets (sans internet). OMG -- cut into my One Life to Live... / Continue →

    You know what separates the men from the boys? Pubic hair. I'm serious, I think that's it. This is a video of Garret MacNamara risking getting deep-sixed by a 90-footer to set a record for the largest wave surfed, breaking Mike Parsons' 2008 record of 77-feet. Impressive, G... / Continue →

    I've got news for you: all t-shirts come with an integrated sunglass wiping cloth -- IT'S CALLED THE BOTTOM. You can even use the inside if you're really fancy. This is the Wipe t-shirt from Japanese clothier fift. It has three microfiber clothes on it to clean your touchscr... / Continue →

    Dum dum dum! Bright Blinds (concept posted back in '07, now a real product) are blinds with a light behind them designed to look like a window. But when you yank the cord to actually see out the window, PRESTO! there isn't one. Nope, you're just staring at the hole you punc... / Continue →

    This is a little Angry Birds level recreated entirely out of LEGO by Flickr user SavaTheAggie. "Angry Birds is stupid!" Is it? Then why have I 3-starred every level ever created AND found all the golden eggs? "I don't know, because you spend a lot on the john with your iPho... / Continue →

    This is a recirculating ketchup fountain, not unlike the recirculating nacho cheese fountain we featured that somebody was classy enough to construct for their wedding. Now I know what you're thinking, "but why couldn't it be ranch?!" And that's because you're fat. Move Ove... / Continue →
  • November 8, 2011
    This is a terrible, butt-ass quality video of some lunatic trying to drive his Mazda off a tow truck's crane. Presumably because he's wasted and wants the police to shoot him. Also, I've never seen a tow-truck like that -- it kind of reminds me of one of those claw machines f... / Continue →

    Seen here preventing an invisible giant's balls from touching the floor, Honda's ASIMO robot has undergone a series of upgrades, making him lighter, faster, and more autonomous (not to mention less likely to fall up and down stairs). Wonderful news in the middle of a site upgr... / Continue →

    Moto Undone (just like the top few buttons of my blouse!) is a conceptual electric motorcycle designed by Joey Ruiter. When seen from a blurry ant's-eye-view, the bike almost seems to disappear. When seen clearly at normal height, it looks like a dude humping a mirror because... / Continue →

    Those ankles. $30 LED slippers: so you can find that bit of midnight snack you dropped on your way back from the fridge. And don't even act like they're to prevent stubbing toes because nobody watches their feet while they walk unless they're trying to avoid dog shit or break... / Continue →
  • November 7, 2011
    This is a seeing eye robot developed by Japanese ball-bearings giant NSK, who actually wants to see the robo-dog hit production lines by 2020. *eying calendar* I'd...work on something I could monetize a little quicker. With this third iteration, unveiled late last month, NSK... / Continue →

    This is a for-real video of a guy who poses as a 15-year old girl online (been there, done that amirite?!), gains the interest of some pedo, and agrees to meet them in real life. Then dude shows up dressed as Batman and calls the pedo out. This is a video of that happening. ... / Continue →

    A video of robots struttin' their asses to the Bee Gee's classic, 'Stayin' Alive'? Of course. This IS the internet, people. Hit the jump for the video.... / Continue →

    Two separate (but possibly related) groups of French thieves robbed two trucks carrying copies of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, making off with over 10,000 copies of the game valued at around €780,000 (just over $1-million). No word if they used tactics learned from previous... / Continue →

    Picture related...enough. A 50-year old Croatian man has been arrested after seeking medical help to remove a live 11-cm anti-aircraft shell from his butt after getting it stuck up there during a sex game. The deadliest sex game. You...have been hanging out with a bad crowd.... / Continue →

    A man serving a prison sentence in Wales was recently discovered to be in possession of a Final Fantasy weapon arsenal made entirely out of matchsticks. You know, because that's what you do in prison: make things out of matchsticks (plus hide things in you B-U-T-T!). The Gove... / Continue →

    So there's gonna be a NEW AND IMPROVED Geekologie in the very near future. Possibly even tonight. That's why you can't comment today, because we want you to save up all those gems (gems, LOL) for the new system. That or something went horribly, horribly wrong. So yeah, stay... / Continue →

    Australian transportation authority VicRoads has signed a deal with Warner Bros. to be able to issue DC Comics superhero license plates. Why? I dunno, apparently there's a demand for this sort of thing down under. Also: Vegemite and boomerangs. I want a Batman one with 'RBN... / Continue →

    I know the screencap is kind of blurry, but those are guns in the air. Also, THE LEAST COOL PLACE I CAN THINK OF TO PERFORM YOUR METAL GEAR SOLID GUNSPINNING ROUTINE. "Hey mom -- don't come in the living room for the next five minutes." God, go outside and stand in front of ... / Continue →

    The US government, best known for doing everything in its power keep the general populace in the dark about anything of interest, has issued a statement claiming no knowledge of aliens or any coverups related to extraterrestrial life. Oh, real cool gubment -- LYING STRAIGHT TO... / Continue →

    Green yellow energy. Urine: minus writing your name in the snow or peeing under a roommate's bedroom door, most of it gets wasted. But now researchers in England are experimenting with microbial fuel cells (MFCs) to draw pee power from yellow gold. *splashing all over the ba... / Continue →
