    This is astronaut Chris Hadfield demonstrating what happens when you wring a washcloth out in space. It's completely different (read: cooler) than what happens here on boring old earth. Also, who the hell uses washcloths anymore -- this is 2011, folks. "2013." Right. This i... / Continue →

    This is a well-shot compilation video from Joey Shanks of various magnets (some covered in glitter and mirrors!) being swallowed by metallic silly putty. It's mesmerizing. Plus reminded me of how butts work BUT IN REVERSE. I should have been a science teacher. Hit the jump ... / Continue →

    This is the Predator inspired motorcycle helmet from NLO MOTO. It costs $780. Now I know that may seem like a lot, but that's only because it is. My head isn't worth a quarter of that. It's built on an actual motorcycle helmet so it's properly safety rated, but has been enh... / Continue →

    Remember yesterday's Star Wars pet costumes? Well Costume Craze is also selling these unholy skintight costumes for humans. Because why should your pet get all the attention? They didn't even pick their costume, you picked it for them. But there they are taking all the cred... / Continue →

    58-year old Wen Hsu has lived in the same apartment building in Jilin city, China, for the last 35-years. Recently, all of Wen's neighbors were bought out of the building by a construction company wanting to build a mall in its location. Except Wen says they weren't offering ... / Continue →

    This is Bathing Bad, a line of Breaking Bad inspired bath salts created by Great Face & Body Spa with the same sky blue color as Walter White's infamous meth. An 8-oz bag from Firebox will set you back $23 and they are NOT to be confused with the designer drug bath salts you s... / Continue →

    This is a $12 comic book themed keyboard sticker set sold by Etsy seller Killer Duck Decals. Pictures of the stickers originally showed up in this Reddit thread with no other details, so after three seconds of internet sleuthing (including one second to tell an idiot friend to... / Continue →

    Because humans aren't the only animals that like to play dress-up and pretend they're something they're not for awhile to escape the monotony of regular life, this is a series of Star Wars dog costumes from Costume Craze. You should put one on your dog and bring it to the next... / Continue →

    This is a series of chair paintings that look like ordinary canvases but are actually made out of an elastic material and have a wooden frame behind them so you can sit IN the painting. They were designed by the Japanese design studio YOY and would be the perfect thing to put ... / Continue →

    In news that won't excite anyone and will probably make me look like an ass-hat for even posting it (I'm having a great self-esteem day), Budweiser is going to release new 'bowtie' shaped cans of its famous alcoholic water starting next month. I'm gonna buy some, save them for... / Continue →

    This is a video of BASE jumper/wingsuit enthusiast/potential extreme sport accident victim Alexander Polli flying through a tiny stone archway in Montserrat, Spain. They're saying the arch is only six-feet wide, but it looks a little wider than that to me. Granted not wide en... / Continue →
  • For a new Parks & Recreation airing tomorrow, Patton Oswalt was apparently asked to ad-lib a council filibuster on the subject of his choosing. What resulted was an astounding eight minutes of Oswalt giving an amazingly-nerdy Star Wars pitch until his mouth went dry. Take a loo... / Continue →

    Note: Larger version HERE but you'll have to save the image to see it full-size because Geekologie is long, not wide. Unless wider is better in which case we're totally wide too. This is the evolution of video game controllers designed as a poster for Pop Chart Labs (and diff... / Continue →

    This is the Power Mitt, a Nintendo Power Glove inspired oven mitt. It costs $15 from Fangamer AND YOU BETTER USE IT TO BAKE ME SOME COOKIES. Nothing with raisins or nuts though. And I don't feel like sugar cookies right now either. Or anything chocolate. You know what? Ju... / Continue →

    This is a commercial for LG's new 21:9 UltraWide monitor that's allegedly so lifelike that if it plays a video of some chicks looking at you while you're trying to pee it makes it super hard to open your floodgates. Presumably the guys all knew they were being filmed because r... / Continue →

    Pointerpointer is a website that finds a picture of someone pointing to the current location of your mouse cursor. Apparently the site has existed for awhile but my mom has just now let me start surfing the internet unsupervised so I have a lot of catching up to do. A friend ... / Continue →

    This is a series of superhero art by Native American artist Jeffrey Veregge. I'm really digging them. It's always amazed me how some Native American tribes could make it rain just by doing a special dance. Because the only other time I've seen that happen is at the nudie bar... / Continue →

    This is a series of ten Disney princess themed rings designed and sold by Gemvara. Each one represents a different Disney princess (obviously this is Ariel's here) and has a related quote engraved inside the band. They'll set you back between $1,000 - $5,000 depending on the ... / Continue →

    PROTIP: I was eating breakfast when I first saw this and now there's a bowl of cereal getting warm on the kitchen counter. Use that information wisely. These are some intense temporary hand and arm body piercings made to look like Wolverine's adamantium skeleton and claws. P... / Continue →

    These are two proposed Adventure Time themed LEGO sets designed by Cuuso user and Geekologie reader jazlecraz. This is a 1,300-piece set of Jake and Finn's tree fort here (complete with interiors -- picture after the jump), but there's also a smaller, 400-piece 'micro' version... / Continue →

    Note: Video does contain some brief bare boobie action so make sure to call everybody in the office over before you start it. This is an interactive music video for the band Light Light's song 'Kilo'. You just follow the instructions on the screen as the song plays, then they... / Continue →

    Silk is a website (plus iPhone/iPad app) where you can draw pretty pictures like this one with different colors by changing the symmetry of your brush points and just going to town doodling your little heart out. This piece here I created myself, and is supposed to represent a... / Continue →

    This is the cake that Chris Holmes used to resign from his job at the Stansted Airport so he could pursue his true passion -- making cakes. He has really nice penmanship (technically icing-bagmanship). Unlike Chris, when I quit a job I don't give my coworkers some tasty treat... / Continue →

    This is the custom Fallout board game that Redditor XsimonbelmontX (of Castlevania fame?!) spent eight months making for his wife's birthday. Despite the board's resemblance to Monopoly, he says the only similarity in gameplay is the ability to buy property. Everything else i... / Continue →

    So apparently the Miami area is fighting an invasion of Giant African Land Snails, an invasive species of gastropod that's capable of EATING THROUGH WALLS. Well, stucco and plaster anyways. Which is what some walls are made of. Unless you're the first little pig, in which ca... / Continue →

    This is a small series of ceramic dinosaur corn on the cob holders designed by Lana Filippone. Obviously, they're the best thing to happen to corn on the cob holders since Native Americans invented corn (remind me to Wikipedia that) and are this summer's must-have grilling acc... / Continue →

    This is the 33-year old Subaru that two friends decided to jazz up with a Jurassic Park paint job, making it infinitely cooler than it was and something I would be proud to ride around shotgun in. I'd never drive it myself though, but only because I lost my license and OBEY TH... / Continue →

    Frankie the cat has lived in a New Zealand McDonald's parking lot for the last year, surviving on little more than the nuggets and pieces of cheeseburger patrons would toss him after following their cars through the drive-thru. Add an occasional strawberry shake and you have m... / Continue →

    Tom Bingham makes custom electric guitars out of the Star Wars spaceship toys he buys at car boot (trunk) sales (aka stolen goods sales). That's cool, but not near as ICE COLD as the ice cream bar I'm eating right now. It's strawberry -- you jealous? No? What if I told you ... / Continue →

    This is the Duck Hunt themed pinball machine made by the folks at Skit-B Pinball. The game was modded from an old Williams Valiant machine and has a screen in the backglass that plays Duck Hunt animations in response to playfield targets. That said, I'm a pinball wizard and c... / Continue →

    These are the Batman and Aquaman medieval leather armor costumes crafted by deviantARTist Azmal of the Prince Armory. You may recall already seeing the Batman armor back in this post, but now there's an Aquaman version. Plus they plan on making Loki, Deadpool and Green Lanter... / Continue →

    This is a video of 30 skiers (although I only counted 25) holding hands and doing a simultaneous backflip. Everybody lands it too. If I'd been participating I would have purposefully fallen and dragged everyone else down with me BECAUSE I'M A JERK. Just kidding, because I ca... / Continue →

    Cow Wow Cereal Milk is a line of milk that tastes like it's already had cereal marinating in it. They come in six different flavors representing six different kinds of cereal, including: Chocolate Chip Cathy, Fruity Trudy, Honey Beatrice, Cinny Minny, Peanut Butter Bessie, and... / Continue →

    This is a series of ten Hyrulean travel posters designed by Dean Walton and sold over at Gamer Print. You can get them in different sizes and even as iPhone cases if you want, which I actually do want if we're being honest with each other. If we're not being honest with each ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a 90-year old grandma wearing Oculus Rift virtual reality goggles and taking a tour of Tuscany. And let me tell you -- she is LOVING IT. When I'm old I want VR goggles fused to my eyeballs so I can live out the remainder of my life in virtual paradise inste... / Continue →

    This is Matt Denton's two-ton Mantis, a hexapod robot walking machine that can climb on things and all around terrify anybody in its path. Hell, I'm not even in its path and I need a diaper change. Mantis runs off a 2.2-litre, 50 horsepower turbo diesel engine, and it stands ... / Continue →
