    Twitter user TheRealMyron got this Netflix tattoo on the side of his stomach and tweeted it to Netflix's account, and the movie-streaming giant awarded his loyal fandom with a free year of service. A whole year! Keep in mind Netflix wasn't holding a contest or anything, Myron... / Continue →

    This is a Mystery Science Theater 3000 themed wall decal featuring the silhouettes of Tom Servo, Joel and Crow T. Robot made to appear like they're sitting a row behind you on the couch. They're not really though, it's just a $35 sticker for sale from Walkingdeadpromotion. Do... / Continue →

    This is a video of the ROLI Seaboard, a new mushy-keyed keyboard that allows you to control more of the output than you could on a traditional keyboard thanks to pressure-sensitive keys. I'm not even going to pretend like I understand any of this because if there's two things ... / Continue →

    Remember the 400,000 piece LEGO Hogwarts build by Alice Finch? Well this is a time lapse of its assembly. Not the entire build mind you, just putting together the predominately per-assembled pieces for display at the Emerald City Comicon. A time-lapse of the actual build, go... / Continue →

    Because paper Link need a lady, this is a life-size Zelda papercraft sculpture built by DeviantARTist minidelirium using the template created by PaperJuke, which you can download HERE if you want to build her yourself. Of course minidelirium said she took 226 hours to complete... / Continue →

    Note: It's an optical illusion, not an animated GIF. You can't print animated gifs on paper. This is a video of a cat spazzing out on the optical illusion seen above. So now we know -- yes, cats CAN see optical illusions. And laser beams. Unfortunately mine can't seem to s... / Continue →

    Sure Minas Tirith didn't have a moat, but come on -- this is a sandcastle. A sandcastle without a moat is like a hotdog bun with no hotdog -- it isn't right. And it's even more wrong when you decide to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich in it. Built by DeviantARTist Buc... / Continue →

    This is a shot of DeviantARTist Hearte42's ultrasound, which looks suspiciously like Emperor Palpatine. Will the boy grow up to a megalomaniac, crazed for ultimate power? No, because it's a girl. I'm kidding, I don't know what it is but it's definitely not a turtle. Right? ... / Continue →

    Note: It wasn't actually Google Maps, it's the Russian equivalent called Yandex Maps. I just said Google Maps in the title because because if I'd said Yandex you'd be all, 'Dammit, the GW's been drinking again' (which I have but I'm trying to play it off). A woman in Russia r... / Continue →

    This is the $93 crocheted Bane mask made by Etsy seller Stitch Finder General. It looks pretty accurate. Unfortunately it doesn't come with the jacket, so you're gonna have to hit up the thrift store on your own for that one. Oh -- and get me a corded computer mouse while yo... / Continue →

    This is Dita Von Teese modeling the first fully 3-D printed dress. I had to ask my mom who Dita Von Teese was and she told me she's a dancer but if she caught me Googling pictures of her she'd take away my internet. Which is why you're going to do it for me and email me the p... / Continue →

    This is a series of impressive 'taxidermied' LEGO insects created by LEGO pros and possible entomologists Siercon and Coral. They're all really good too, I love it when people think outside the box. Because inside the box? Inside the box is the PAST. Inside the box is just ... / Continue →

    Needs more TV. This is prop-builder Andrew Cook's living/gaming room. He's decorated it with a bunch of prop guns he's made from the Mass Effect and Halo franchises, because why not? Plus if somebody breaks in they might think he's some sort of commando from the future and j... / Continue →

    Tailly is a heart-rate controlled robotic wagging tail (not to be confused with these mood-controlled robotic wagging tails). It's currently an Indiegogo project and $95 will get you one if they meet their $50,000 funding goal (which doesn't look like it's going to happen with... / Continue →
  • March 7, 2013
    This is a series of mannequin lamps by Al-Hamad Design. They're called 'Embarakiya', except I would have called them 'Life of the Party Lamps' but that's just me and I should have gone straight from high school to a successful career in product naming instead of pissing away m... / Continue →

    The video isn't actually from Japan's Got Talent (I'm not even sure if that exists and I'm not gonna Google it to find out), it's from a show called KAMIWAZA. Does anybody else think those sticks look like dinosaur bones? RAWR! I'm pretending to have little t-rex arms right ... / Continue →
  • March 6, 2013
    This is a set of Doctor Who themed cookies baked and decorated by the Cookie Cowgirl. Obviously, she has some serious skills in food art. And, if her name is any indication, in lassoing wild ponies as well. I actually tried my hand at lassoing at a county fair one time. The... / Continue →

    This is a small series of pen and colored pencil drawings by artist/Pokemon lover Birdy Chu of basic Pokemons cosplaying as their final forms in little onsie costumes. My final form? A WORTHLESS PILE OF BONES. Just keepin' it real. Probably too real if my mom is reading thi... / Continue →

    A 62-year old man was arrested after barricading himself in his house and then shooting one of the police robots that authorities sent in after him. Admittedly, I would have done the same thing. Johnny Five is not a professional negotiator. Michael Blevins was charged with... / Continue →

    FULL DISCLOSURE: I've never read or seen 'The Notebook' but I've had it explained to me and I know for a fact it's something I couldn't watch in front of anybody because I make the ugliest faces when I cry. Jack Potter, 91, has been married to Phyllis Potter, 93, for over 70... / Continue →

    This is the old west time-traveling train from Back to the Future III recreated in LEGO by Back to the Future and LEGO fan Masashi. It's an electric set and works on LEGO train tracks, but is currently only a LEGO Cuuso project and will undoubtedly be denied manufacture by LEG... / Continue →
  • March 6, 2013
    Because I used to have a poster of a Countach (plus a Cindy Crawford one) on my wall like every other boy who grew up in the 80's, this is Lamborghini's recently unveiled Veneno, it's fastest and most powerful car to date. The Batmobile-looking land rocket is powered by a 750-... / Continue →

    Seen here looking straight out of a Skymall catalog, this is the $32 BB Tech Screen Cleaning Throw blanket. It's a blanket with a microfiber edge on one side for wiping gadget screens because, you know, this is the world we live in. You laugh now, but your parents just ordere... / Continue →

    This is a video of some guy sending a smoke ring he just blew around a beer bottle by guiding it with his hand. Impressive magic skills bro, but you do know Gandalf is a real wizard and can't get cancer, right? Hit the jump for the video.... / Continue →

    Because they're all the rage right now, Ferrari is going to manufacturer a million-dollar, 963-horsepower gas/electric hybrid supercar called the *drumroll please* LaFerrari. *womp womp* Wow, and I was this close to putting my name on the waiting list. The car generates ele... / Continue →

    Seen here looking suspiciously like the lovechild of Gandalf and Cousin Itt (easily two of my biggest celebrity crushes), Youtuber and dreamboat Smooth McGroove performs Ocarina Of Time's 'Song of Storms' acapella. If you liked it he has a whole bunch of other Zelda songs too ... / Continue →
  • March 5, 2013
    This is 'The Bat', a magnetically levitating computer mouse designed by KIBARDINDESIGN. It does everything a regular mouse does plus levitates and probably cost 100x more. Still -- rich people. Hey Bill, have you seen my new hover-mouse? 'No Mike, I haven't. But why the f*... / Continue →

    This is some dash-cam footage from (where else?) Russia of a Subaru that loses control while passing another car on an icy road and does a 360-degree spin before landing perfectly in the lane and driving off like nothing happened. Which makes me wonder -- was the spin really u... / Continue →

    This is the Hylian shield cake made by Redditor Riorus' mom for his 18th birthday. Impressive, but do you know what my mom made me for my 18th birthday? Pack all my stuff and get out of the house. I guess she didn't feel like baking. Hit the jump for a couple more shots. N... / Continue →
  • March 5, 2013
    This is a transforming dress designed by Hussein Chalayan, who has been developing transforming women's fashion since at least this other one I posted back in 2007, except that one transformed INTO A NAKED LADY, making it infinitely better. It's supposed to be fashion FORWARD... / Continue →

    Remember that 8.8 Million Volt Shock Mod Ninja Sword built by Youtuber GreekGadgetGuru? Well fellow Youtuber jonathanj9969 built a similar one, and this is a video of him taking one for the team and getting blasted with the thing. First he takes a shock to the stomach, then h... / Continue →

    A chubby British man dressed in what appears to be Batman sweatsuit hauled a 27-year old fraud and burglary suspect to a police station and handed him over to authorities...then disappeared into the night. All the news sources are speculating who the masked crusader is, which ... / Continue →

    This is the custom D-20 engagement ring that Babelglyph had crafted to propose to her girlfriend after a Dungeons and Dragons gaming session. I was married before, have I told you that? Apparently I only rolled a two for 'years before the strumpet leaves you for somebody else... / Continue →
  • March 4, 2013
    This is a viral ad for that movie 'Drop Dead Fred' or whatever (actually 'Dead Man Down' for the sake of journalistic integrity) that features two dudes in an elevator, one pretending to strangle the other with an extension cord, to see how people will react. SPOILER: Poorly -... / Continue →

    Part of Interstate 79 was shut down in Harrison County, West Virginia yesterday afternoon after a mysterious LEGO spill obstructed one of the lanes. Go home Santa, you're drunk. When reached for comment, one local resident had this to say, "Hands down the most exciting thing ... / Continue →

    Because somebody out there really has a solid concept of what kids want, this is a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Chia Pet. I'm not sure which particular turtle it's supposed to be, but you I guess you can paint his mask whatever color you want. I'm gonna paint mine yellow a... / Continue →
  • March 4, 2013
    This is the Kymera electric bodyboard. It doesn't need Mother Nature's sissy wave power because it has an electric engine and battery. It's basically a lay-down jet-ski, and I was actually pretty impressed with its speed. They're currently a Kickstarter project though so if y... / Continue →

    Because what furry/My Little Pony cosplayer wants to wear a wig and a SEPARATE unicorn horn, Etsy seller GimmCat is selling wigs with pre-attached horns. Plus ears. She also sells tails but you have to buy those separately. I'm particularly fond of this model because I've al... / Continue →
