    Cling is a table with the chair built right into it. So they stay together and you can easily transport both at the same time. It's a neat idea and looks pretty cool, but what happens when you're trying to eat dinner and realize you can't because there's a giant chair-sized h... / Continue →

    I've dreamed of the day I never have to stand up ever again and that dream is slowly becoming a reality. The HUBO-FX1 is a robot designed to walk passengers around up to 220 lbs. It's controlled via an attached joystick and can go forward, backward, and sideways. Plus how aweso... / Continue →

    Is this a real Absolut ad? I've never seen it before but it's brilliant. Almost as brilliant as me, except I bet it never built a working nuclear reactor in its basement. ... / Continue →

    Sweetest Wii case mod I've ever seen? Almost. I modded my Wii last week to look like a Ferrari. Oh, wait, that wasn't a mod. That was my actual car. I'm filthy rich! One more shot of the Wii mod after the jump.... / Continue →

    If you thought blowing up a sand castle and then playing the video back in reverse and slow motion would be awesome, you were 100% absolutely correct. One more video after the jump.... / Continue →

    Pretty cool what you can do with a shadow and some masking tape. Personally, I could build a functional aircraft carrier out of them. I'm like MacGuyver, but with more skillz. And I used a 'z' so you know I mean business. Source... / Continue →

    Leave it to the Japanese to come up with a pedal-powered roller coaster. The Skycycle at Washuzan Highland Park in Okayama has side-by-side tandem pedal-powered carts with seat belts, which sounds pretty scary considering the course. If you got on that thing with Lance Armstr... / Continue →

    The Aptera prototype was unveiled at TED this past weekend in Monterey and is a ultra-high-mileage supervehicle from Accelerated Composites (aka Aptera Motors) that was built to be as aerodynamic as possible. Combined with a super-efficient diesel hybrid engine and a carbon fib... / Continue →

    If you've got a spare hard drive laying around, why not turn it into a motorcycle? Who knew the thing that used to hold my MP3's, movies, porn Word documents could look so beautiful? Me, that's who. I know everything!... / Continue →

    This isn't a computer generated outline, it's a real 1:1 wire frame sculpture of a Subaru Impreza and is the work of British artist Benedict Radcliffe. The sculpture was part of a show at the Paul Smith Gallery last month and even received a few parking tickets over the cour... / Continue →

    Google Maps apparently has a super zoom function for certain locations. Some of them are additional images inserted for partners like National Geographic, but others are actual satelilite photos of random locations. To access the super zoom function just do this: 1. Select a l... / Continue →

    These guys were served a raw Premium Chicken Sandwich at a New Hampshire McDonald's. Which is pretty bad, but one time at McDonald's I was served a live chicken. They brought it out, stuck two buns on it, and said "Eat up." I mean it was delicious, but thinking back that prob... / Continue →

    The National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology in Japan has created some incredible robot/animatronic dinosaurs that can actually walk around. And in case you're wondering, yes, it is perfectly normal if this video gave you a boner.... / Continue →

    This water bottle safe has a secret compartment for your money, but also uses actual liquid to fool possible thieves. The only problem is that it's named "Arioso" water. Ever heard of "Arioso" brand water? Yeah, neither has anybody else in the world. Unless your thief can't rea... / Continue →

    The ThermalTake iFlash is a computer fan that displays the temperature of the case as well as its brand name. Pointless? Kind of. The temperature info is useful, but imagine seeing "ThermalTake" constantly flashing from your computer. It'd be neat if you could program your ow... / Continue →

    The Jump Snap is a jump rope without the rope. So basically it's the most useless invention ever. It's supposed to let people jump rope even if they don't have the coordination or fitness level required to do so, but that completely eliminates the point of jump rope. Anybody ca... / Continue →

    This guy was asked to build a giant NES controller for a game store window display. It looks pretty awesome, but unfortunately doesn't actually work. Which is bad news for my friend Steve. His hands are the size of bathtubs. A couple more pictures of the giant NES controlle... / Continue →
