    You ever seen a robot-child pulling a kid around in a rickshaw? Now you have. And I think I speak for all of us when I say, "I want to cut its legs off and steal those glasses". A creepy kid's ride where they ride other (robot) kids, in the SM City Marikina mall in the Phi... / Continue →

    John Hunter is a man with a dream. And while most men dream of supermodel orgies (don't lie), John dreams of shooting shit into space with a cannon. Me too, John, me too. PSSSHOOOOOOOOW!! John Hunter wants to shoot stuff into space with a 3,600-foot gun. And he's dead serio... / Continue →

    Matthew here went and got sunglasses tattooed on his face. That way he'll never misplace them! But I still wouldn't stare directly at the sun with them on. Oh who am I kidding -- of course I would. BUT ONLY BECAUSE I'M A MODERN GALILEO. So yeah -- put that in your pipe te... / Continue →

    Because you can't run an Egyptian themed design contest without a Mario entry winning, here's today's Shirt.Woot. It's Mario in the style of hieroglyphics and $10 shipped TODAY ONLY. I swear, I really need to start demanding kickbacks from all these t-shirt companies. Here I... / Continue →

    Sleep Suits are genius. Basically you put one on, and then look like a huge f***ing (comfortable) jackass while you sleep -- anywhere! Plus, they have perforations all over that allow "human contact". I love being groped! The suit is inspired by Buckminster Fuller's practic... / Continue →

    You really think I'd let Burlesque Week on Geekologie come to an end without a little action for Friday? No sir/ma'am! This is a video of Princess Peach stripping it down (these are actually the video associated with THIS old post), but hit the jump for some Chun Li, Link/Zel... / Continue →

    The ThermaHelm motorcycle helmet keeps your brain on ice in the event of an accident. That's important because if you'll recall those anti-drug commercials from yesteryear: a cooked egg brain is no good. Except with buttered toast. I say throw a halved grapefruit into the mi... / Continue →

    For Pac-Man's 30th anniversary a chain of convenience stores in Japan will be selling his likeness in the shape of questionably filled cookie buns. Mmmmmm!! Now call me old fashioned, but I still like to celebrate anniversaries the way God intended: with somebody jumping out ... / Continue →

    This is a short video of girls making the sound effects to scenes from 'Commando', 'The Dark Knight' and 'Terminator 3'. The video is called 'Girls Are Bad At Sound Effects', but I thought they did an incredible job. There are literally a TON of quality pews in there. And I ... / Continue →

    This is a little info-graphic explaining some of the numbers behind the pron industry. I say pron instead of p0rn0 in case your company is big-brothering you (God, how can you even function in such an oppressive environment?). No need to thank me, I know you'd do the same for... / Continue →

    How often do I ask you for anything? Almost never, right? Well now I'm asking you for something. Where can I buy and/or get the materials to make this dinosaur necklace? Because I want one. And, even if my girlfriend doesn't know it yet, she wants one too. I think if I co... / Continue →

    Alright, I'm taking bets -- who will be the victor? If you answered, "GW in a f***ing monster truck", congratulations, you won. Something. Not my v-card though. Head-on crash test: 2009 Chevy Malibu vs. 1959 Bel Air [dvice] Thanks to James, who would have crushed both thos... / Continue →

    I honestly didn't know his name was Mola Ram, but hey -- you learn something new everyday. Like today I learned repeatedly slamming your penis in a car door doesn't necessarily impress the cart-returner at the grocery store the way you'd expect (somebody call a locksmith). T... / Continue →

    Like being a father, just the very thought of it makes me sick to my stomach. And the only thing that makes this redeemable is the fact that "my robe and wizard hat" also made the cut (bloodninja, high-five!). Oh, and "my Robert Pattinson". God that's pathetic. Listen Twi-H... / Continue →

    Ever wondered what Disney princesses would look like dressed as their villains? WELL WONDER NO MORE MY CARTOON-LOVING COMPADRES! Because they'd look like this. Mystery solved, we can all move on with our lives now. Except me, because now I wanna know what Ursala looks like ... / Continue →

    The Doomsday Clock, which I'd like to think looks a little more official than that piece of shit in the picture, has been set back a minute, to 6-minutes till midnight. I suspect it's some sort of governmental diversion. The Doomsday Clock has been set back 1 minute for the f... / Continue →

    This is a very well made stop-motion LEGO short. I highly recommend you watch it. I did -- twice, and I found it really inspiring. Not as inspirational as the Special Olympics, but still pretty good. Lego Short Film Makes Me Want to Play With Legos Immediately [gizmodo]... / Continue →

    HA! That brought a smile to my face. Which is good because I've been struggling ever since that last lamb post. Internet gods have feelings too, you know. Or so I've heard. But blogging hacks definitely do. Well That Was Easy. [epicwinftw] Thanks to Gareth, who accidenta... / Continue →

    NOTE: BELIEVE ME, YOU DON'T WANT TO HIT THE JUMP (God I'm good at getting extra pageviews). So a sheep in Turkey (you're not a bird!) gave birth to a lamb with a human face. Except the lamb was already dead and had to be cut out via c-section. Apparently it was some kind of ... / Continue →

    Consollection is a website that features every video game console every produced along with a bio of each. It's a great reference in case you get in a drunken argument with a friend over what year the Atari Jaguar was released. And you know what else makes a great reference d... / Continue →

    As many of you Geekologie Loyalists may know, I don't really go to the movies. Thing is, I hate large groups of people (but love large people -- weird, I know). However, I may have to get over it if only to sneak my own bag of Bacon Bourbon Caramel Corn in and moan in ecstasy... / Continue →

    Now we've known about eyeball tattoos for awhile now, just not that people were getting them done in the slammer. Honestly, there are just some things I just wouldn't want to get done in prison: my ass, and every single other thing ever. But did that stop David Boltjes and Pa... / Continue →

    Wow, did the GW really just post a picture of a girl sitting on a car with a 'ZELDA64' license plate? DAMN YEAH HE DID, HIGH-FIVE! But wait, there's more. You see Alyssa there is on an adult website that just launched called Pixel-Vixens. What is Pixel-Vixens? Every model ... / Continue →

    It's a giant baby robot. It exemplifies everything that's wrong with robotics. Namely, that they exist -- or were born, if you will (L337 baby tie-in FTW!). It shouldn't exist. If I had a time machine I'd go back in time and make sure it was never created bang dinos. Sorry... / Continue →

    This is a screenshot of me playing First Person Tetris. It's played just like regular Tetris except, instead of rotating the pieces, it rotates your view. I puked twice just trying to get a good shot. And I licked it up like a dog. Smell my breath! First Person Tetris T... / Continue →

    Because I practically ooze journalistic integrity out of my apricot-y nipples, here's some $80 Space Invaders tights I posted strictly because of the picture. Are you getting all this, Pulitzer committee? Let me know if you need my address again so you can send the trophy. W... / Continue →

    7. Comfort the dying. Geez that's morbid. And as much as I'd like to think I could, I'd probably be too busy running around in circles screaming. They don't call me Mr. Cool Under Fire for nothing you know. In Case Of Nuclear Attack: #7 - Comfort The Dying [ohgizmo]... / Continue →

    This is a little graphic depicting the likelihood of various features on the upcoming Apple tablet. Of course, you can't read that one for shit so click HERE to see the thing in all its high-res glory, glory, hallelujah. So, what do you think, is it gonna have all that stuff?... / Continue →

    Alternatively, high-py birthday. Do I know my word wizardry or what? And don't "or what" me either or you'll leave me no choice but to WHIP YOUR MONKEY ASS. Yes I'm feeling fighty this morning. I think it was something in my coffee. Namely, the steroids. Kidding, I don't ... / Continue →

    Hey, want to creep everybody out and get your own personal patrol car following you where ever you go? Then buy a $175 custom Pedobear hoodie from Calgary Cosplay (Pedonadians!) and wear it to a middle school basketball game. Make sure to stare at the cheerleaders. Product... / Continue →

    This is a video of a super-staged Wii fail. It's still worth watching though, so check it out. Then you can bicker back and forth in the comments about something completely unrelated and call each other names. Haha -- do I know you guys or what?! Youtube Thanks to mongoose... / Continue →

    The Build-A-Meal playset is actually a plate for children who won't eat their cheeseburger unless it's in a little construction zone (perfect for use with these utensils). Kids love building; they build playhouses, castles and forts. Let them pretend that they are site manag... / Continue →

    This picture is so old colors hadn't even been invented yet. But had balls of steel? Yes they had. Speaking of which: thanks God, now watch me jump this bus with rocket-skates on. How Did They Make Zeppelins? [gizmodo] Thanks to Rick, who built a zeppelin single-handedly a... / Continue →

    Following hot on the heels of yesterday's Star Wars burlesque comes Watchwomen: a Watchmen themed burlesque. Except this is a video instead of still-ass pictures. I swear, this moving picture thing -- this shit's the future. Also, quick question: who watches the Watchwomen?... / Continue →

    FINALLY, a tape dispenser that cuts tape with a straight edge. I think I speak for us all when I say IT'S ABOUT DAMN TIME. Zig-zag edges are sooooooo 1900's. Also, tops you can't see through. Ahem, ladies. This is the 2000's -- GET WITH THE FUTURE! As you can see, the bla... / Continue →

    M.I.A., best known for her hit 'Paper Planes', recently wrote a song about a 3-hour tech support call with Verizon. Now I don't know about you, but I can't wait to get out on the dance floor and shake my sloopy ass booty to it! These hips don't lie, bitches! But they do get ... / Continue →

    This is a Super Mario 3 level made using stop motion. I liked it. Not as much as I like you, but I think we share something special. Unfortunately for you, that special something happens to be your sandwich. Give it to me. Paper Mario Bros. 3 - A Stop Motion Animation [haw... / Continue →

    You know what your dog needs? A f***ing walk. Not oxygen therapy. But hey, it's available if you want it. Just don't expect us to stay friends afterward. I CAN'T EVEN LOOK AT YOU ANYMORE! Developed by Air Press, the chambers are designed to help the dogs relax from their ... / Continue →

    I have no idea what a duvet is but allegedly that's what this is so I'm running with it. Also, with scissors because I throw caution into the wind. Also, handfuls of grass so I can identify which way it's blowing and fine tune my rocket launch. PSSSSHOOOOOOOW!! Sure this $5... / Continue →

    I could easily go all night and LOVE EVERY SECOND OF IT. That's practically my dream world. Unfortunately, this hellaflawed quiz said I'd only last 1 minute 56 seconds. Just sayin' -- I would wear that dino out. Not unlike my friend Barney. Get that frumpy purple ass of yo... / Continue →

    Alright champ, your wet dreams have finally come true: Star Wars burlesque. I'd keep writing now but I'm fairly confident you've already hit the jump and stripped your pants off in one awkward flourish. Nice socks. Hit the jump to see a whole bunch more Boba, Darth and Storm... / Continue →

    The great thing about making a Van Gogh cake is you don't have to be particularly skilled in the art of cake-decorating. Kidding, that shit looks impossible. Impossibly delicious. I call a star piece! Mmmm -- there's no ear in this, right? Fan of Van Gogh? [forgetfoo] Tha... / Continue →

    Seen here in one of the world's most pathetic photographs, Douglas Hines chats it up with his sex robot "Roxxxy" about soccer (and he wonders why he needs a sex robot). The anatomically-correct robot, who can even snore, has an articulated skeleton that can move like a perso... / Continue →

    This USB keyboard from Smartfish isn't your grandmother's keyboard. No, your grandmother's keyboard is a typewriter. Smartfish's keyboard is motorized and moves every once in awhile to relieve the repetitive stress of spamming on Geekologie. The two halves move apart and tog... / Continue →
