    Worried about somebody getting at the precious files on you flash drive? Try keeping it in your pocket and not leaving it on the bus. But if you're really worried you should handcuff it to your wrist like a briefcase filled with pirate treasure. Alternatively, get a Personal... / Continue →

    Winkers are jeans that have graphics on the ass that appear to move as you walk. They're called Winkers because the first pair they designed have a pair of eyes that appear to wink. These are by far the most ridiculous pants I've ever seen, so, yeah, sure to be a hit. Now if... / Continue →

    KFC just released a new sandwich called the Double Down that features bacon and cheese IN BETWEEN TWO CHICKEN FILLET BUNS. Because, seriously, bread is just filler anyways. A recent review: That's it? That is the sandwich? That's not worth five dollars. Oh... oh my God. That... / Continue →

    This is a video produced by Columbia University explaining the Big Bang in terms even a sped like myself can understand. I thought it was pretty interesting, especially the notion that nothing, not even time, existed before the Big Bang. That blew my mind. Or should I say Bi... / Continue →

    The eniCycle was designed by Aleksander Polutnik and is the lovechild of a Segway and whatever the hell this thing is. And I, for one, would totally ride it. Without a helmet. I'm bad! The EniCycle is powered by an electric 1000 watt hub motor that you lean forward to set i... / Continue →

    No that isn't me. That is a sad gamer. You see, a recent study found that gamers are more likely to be depressed than non-gamers. Shocking, I know. The average gamer is 35, overweight, and more likely to be depressed, says a new study conducted by researchers at the Center ... / Continue →

    This is a teaser trailer for a video demonstrating whether or not the dissolving bikini I posted earlier actually works. SPOILER ALERT: It does. Except it's way freaking lame and the whole bikini doesn't actually dissolve, just a couple small bands holding it on. Go HERE to ... / Continue →

    This is a chess set made out of chain mail. It is impervious to arrows and sword attacks. Which is good because a lot of times I like to threaten my opponents with weapons while we're playing. You know, to keep them on their toes (beat me and you're dead). You ever been mac... / Continue →

    This is an iPhone dock made out of a dinosaur toy. You can make one yourself if you want. You just cut a hole in a dinosaur toy, maybe pleasure yourself with it a couple times because I mean, it's there, and then stuff the docking wire in there. It is seriously the best iPho... / Continue →

    If you've been reading Geekologie long enough you may recall the homemade Transformer costume videos I posted way back in October '07 (the dark years). Well this Bumblebee costume is similar, just not made out of cardboard (skip about halfway through to see the transformation)... / Continue →

    In an experiment that shouldn't surprise anybody with half a brain that sleeps with a giant robot-burning laser under their pillow, scientists have shown that robots have the ability to evolve and lie. And this is to one another -- imagine what they'd tell a human! Also, this... / Continue →

    The pinnacle of human achievement: glow in the dark toilet paper. Finally, I can sleep at night...knowing that if I have to get up to go to the bathroom, I at least won't sit in the sink again. Or will I? I probably will. It's like a bidet! Perfect for power cuts, this gro... / Continue →

    Robotic hookers folks, robotic hookers. Marinate on that one for a second while I down this zucchini bread. Then, I'll be back to discuss the moral ramifications of banging a robot. It sounds like science fiction, but robot bar staff, hotel rooms that change colour, cruise... / Continue →

    This is a video of a shop keeper in Mexico fighting his laptop away from two would be thieves while being shot at. Now I'm not saying this guy has cojones de oro, but I am saying he must have some seriously illegal shit on that laptop. Store Clerk Dodges Bullet to Keep His La... / Continue →

    Look down. Do you have breasts? If so, you're a woman or a man who could afford to lose some weight. Either of which may be interested in these Twilight bandages. They're band-aids, but with Twilight shit on them. Now, not to flaunt my superior product design skills or any... / Continue →

    I am back home safe and sound. Geekologie will now return to its regularly schedule program. The WindowPhone was conceptualized by every single person that daydreams about the future, but designer Seunghan Song actually took the time to create a rendering of it. This is that... / Continue →

    I can honestly say I had no idea indoor synchronized bike riding was a real thing. But now that I do, I can't say I'm surprised (I once saw a grown-ass man lounging in a kiddy pool in his front yard, beating himself in the head with an oversized plastic bat). So yeah, I guess... / Continue →

    I would never think to associate video game tattoos with sentimental memories, but apparently it happens. My Super Nintendo controller tattoo. It says "Mom Mom" because I got it in memory of my grandmother who died 06/08/04. I grew up playing Super Nintendo with her. It's real... / Continue →

    Donny Dirk's Zombie Den is a zombie themed bar in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I don't know how I feel about it. The stunning new interior comes straight out of a 1950s Las Vegas lounge (the classic part). The zombie stuff (i.e. the kitsch) is hilarious, and more nuanced than you'... / Continue →

    This is a short video of a future stunt car driver showing off his parallel parking skills to all the neighborhood ladies (6 and under only, please. Cougars need not apply). Impressive, little guy, but can you, oh I dunno, PERFORM A THREE POINT TURN?!? Because I can't, I fai... / Continue →

    The man seen here, demonstrating there's nothing wrong with some good ol' fashioned man-bag love, is hugging a Do Box punching bag. A Do Box punching bag is a fist receptacle made to be filled with trash and then assaulted. Now, not to brag or anything, but I filled mine with... / Continue →

    I've been thinking for years how badly the world needs a $30 LEGO clock radio, so why it took so long to finally make one is beyond me. Also, quantum physics, I don't those either. The LEGO Clock Radio is ten times the size of an original LEGO brick with knobs that work as vo... / Continue →
