    Sucking specialist Dyson has just announced the Dyson 360 Eye, a robotic vacuum similar to a Roomba but allegedly much, much more advanced, and super suckier. It uses a 360-degree vision system to pick reference points in the environment and triangulate its location so it know... / Continue →

    This is GoVacuum's $1,000,000 24k gold-plated vacuum. It doesn't work better than a regular vacuum, it's just gold. Why? Because if you sell vacuums for a million dollars, you only have to sell one. It's a real product you can buy (although I'll kill you if you do), but was... / Continue →

    This is a video of Utah State University's 'Ascending Aggies' demonstrating the latest incarnation of their vacuum-powered wall-climbing gloves. As you'll see from watching, they work pretty damn well. Plus are near silent. Kidding, they sound like a jet taking off on an air... / Continue →

    This is the Toshiba Smarbo (more like Stupibo amirite?!), a robotic vacuum cleaner designed to compete against iRobot's Roomba. Except this one costs $1,200. Call me old fashioned, but I still like pushing around a $100 vacuum. Well, I don't like doing it, I just have to whe... / Continue →

    This is a chicken "vacuum" used to harvest chickens from the yard and crate them before slaughter so they can finally be put out of their f***ing misery. It's...a great example of what's wrong with the manufactured meat industry. Aaaaaaaand why I don't eat the animals. God k... / Continue →

    Hey -- this rainbow tastes like pet fur and dust bunnies! What happens when you let seven Roombas (each with a different colored LED strapped to its head) loose in a room for a late-night cleaning sesh? This. THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS, LARRY. The creators, IBR Algorithm Group, e... / Continue →

    The Pooch Power Shovel (the quicker, shittier picker-upper) may look like a leaf blower, but it's not. It's also not anything I'd recommend you trying to attach to your genitals, but you know what? Go for it. I'm tired of mothering you. And, honestly, I'm looking forward to... / Continue →

    Been waiting for someone to hack a bunch of Roombas to play Pac-Man? Me neither, but somebody did AND YOU'RE GOING TO WATCH THEM OR I'M GOING TO TOOTHPICK YOUR EYES OPEN AND MAKE YOU. The vacuum, long an instrument for chasing cats, has now been turned against its own. What b... / Continue →

    The Bagel Dome (Dome Dome Dome) is a $40 battery powered vacuum dome made to keep bagels and other oxygen-hating perishables fresh (JUST USE A DYSON, GOD). I contacted the manufacturer and the lady on the phone said it also works for donuts but I have my doubts. Which is exac... / Continue →

    The Pinwheel Galaxy (higher res version HERE) got its name because it looks like a pinwheel. Geez, it doesn't take a rocket surgeon to figure that one out. Or maybe it's cause it loves Little Debbie Pecan Spinwheels so much. Well guess what -- so do I! And Starcrunches? Do... / Continue →
