    These are the characters from A Neverending Story reimagined by artist Nicolas Francoeur as if the movie were made in 2014 instead of 1984. Which is weird considering 2014 hasn't even begun yet. Maybe Nicolas would like to share his time machine with us. "I don't have one." ... / Continue →

    This is a video created by Hungarian animation firm Delov Digital featuring Chuck Norris one-upping Jean Claude Van Damme's Volvo leg-split commercial. It's not real though, it's all CG -- including Chuck. Still, I bet you show it to your mom and convince her it's real. "If ... / Continue →

    These are the window curtains made out of vintage 35mm film slides by Scott Sherwood. The curtains are five and a half feet tall, six feet wide and contain 1,152 individual film slides. Are there any nudes in the mix? If Scott did a good job, they all are. Keep going for a ... / Continue →

    This is a Han Solo frozen in carbonite door decal. It costs $140 (although I saw different ones for cheaper -- do your own search, I'm not your personal shopper) and can be removed so you can reposition it (after you screw up applying it the first time) or taken with you when ... / Continue →

    Because who has the patience for a human waiter to walk your food out to you (what is this, the 1900's? I had sex with a hologram before work this morning), the C One Espresso Cafe in New Zealand will start delivering sliders and fries in pneumatic tubes, straight to your tabl... / Continue →

    Transform and-- ooooh, I like your pants. This is the gingerbread Optimus Prime made by a friend of a friend of Redditor downvotedagain. Is the girl in the picture the one who made it? No clue. Is it actually held together with icing? I doubt it. Hot glue and a metal arma... / Continue →

    Woof! (I want to sneak my tongue in your mouth) NoMoreWoof is a mind-reading headset for dogs that translates their thoughts into human language. Things like "I'm tired", "I'm hungry", "I need to pee", and other cues you should already be able to pick up on without having to ... / Continue →

    A new species of sea slug was discovered of the coast of Brazil by Federal University of Ceará Tropical Marine master's student Felipe de Vasconcelos Silva and named Tritonia khaleesi in honor of Game of Throne khaleesi Daenerys Targaryen's braided hair. That's cool, sometimes... / Continue →

    This is the 500,000+ piece LEGO car that was built by 20-year-old Romanian Raul Oaida. Obviously it's not 100% LEGO (chassis, axles, wheels), but it is fueled by compressed air powering 256 LEGO pistons and can allegedly reach speeds up to 20MPH. For reference, that's faster ... / Continue →

    This is Princess Bubblegum's castle recreated in gingerbread and candy by Redditor IHaveAFluffyCat. Cool, IHaveASmoothTurtle. She posted a pictorial of the entire operation on Imgur, so if you're interested in trying and failing to repeat the process you're more than welcome.... / Continue →

    This is a video of Ethen Godfrey-Roberts performing 'the world's first' Superman double backflip. That shit looks intense (jk jk, it looks like its inasportsarena). I'm not saying I couldn't do it, I'm just saying I probably wouldn't do it in front of so many people. What if... / Continue →

    Flower Shells are shotgun shells loaded with flower seeds instead of birdshot/buckshot (previously: game-bird seasoning shells). The idea is that instead of taking life from the world, you'll be giving life BACK. Unless you shoot an animal, then it's a wash. The shells will ... / Continue →

    Good lord, I could get lost in either one of those two's eyes. This is a video of current movie stars picking their favorite superhero between Batman and Superman, and explaining their choice. The lineup includes Jennifer Lawrence, Tom Hiddleston, Michael Fassbender, Harrison... / Continue →

    Because there is literally no upper limit to Japanese perversion, this is a video demonstration of a pair of motion-controlled anime boobs. Using a Leap Motion gesture input device, a user can sadly jiggle boobs to their heart's content. You don't actually get to feel any cle... / Continue →

    This is stabilized footage taken from the Apollo 16 mission of astronaut John W. Young blasting around on the moon's surface in the lunar rover. It looks like he was trying to do donuts. It really is worth a watch (especially in HD). It's hard to believe humans have actually... / Continue →

    This are the sketches that artist Brian Lai drew that, when a photo of them is inverted, reveal Wolverine. Why always Wolverine? Man crush. And can you blame him? The man knows how to scratch a f***ing back. I make similar sketches, except you have to look at them in a mir... / Continue →

    This is the Wreath of Khan made by Annie Shapiro. Man, that Ricardo Montalbán -- he was a handsome dude. Remember Fantasy Island? My fantasy was always to go be seduced by Mr. Roarke. "What about Tattoo?" He could ride around on my shoulders until things started to get too... / Continue →

    DoubleClit Here (link is NSFW, vagina pictures) is a laptop trackpad cover with a photo of a vagina. This is just an emoticon vagina here, but I assure you they make them with ACTUAL pictures of vaginas too. I never knew they looked like that. They were created by feminist d... / Continue →

    Etsy seller GeekifyInc is selling these Neverending Story tablet covers. They cost $66 and come in a variety of sizes to fit most popular tablets. Don't want the Neverending Story one? What the hell is the matter with you? They also make a Labyrinth book, a linking book fro... / Continue →

    In news that shouldn't surprise anyone, firing a gun while wearing Google Glass makes you look like the protagonist of a first-person shooter video game. At least from the camera's perspective. From an outside perspective it makes you look like a dorky cyborg carrying a gun. ... / Continue →

    These are the Star Trek family car decals available from ThinkGeek. $15 gets you a page containing 32 stickers of 23 unique characters. How would you represent your family? I'd represent mine with a Vulcan. "And?" And that's it, just me the Vulcan. "Don't you have pets?" ... / Continue →

    Note: Larger version HERE. These are the events of 2013 summed up in a single drawing by artist Mario Zucca (links to his website with a complete list of everything included). There are around 90 separate events depicted, including Game of Thrones' Red Wedding, a bunch of vid... / Continue →

    This is a series of portraits of all the Doctors (including the War Doctor, labeled 'X') reimagined in the style of Tim Burton animation characters by artist Michael Kenny. Plus Tumblr-er Made By ABVH has taken the liberty of animating a few into GIFs. I like GIFs. They say ... / Continue →

    This is a video (complete with party-horn sound effects) of a male moth being prodded to inflate its androconial organs. The androconial organs are responsible for releasing pheromones to attract lady moths. I don't know about you, but if I were a moth I'd want pheromones tha... / Continue →

    Because even people buying Pokemon themed engagement rings appreciate options (previously: this Pokeball engagement ring), these are the Pokeball engagement rings available from Paul Michael Design (of triforce engagement ring fame). The enamel version (above) starts at $1,000... / Continue →

    This is the 5-foot x 10-foot, 200,000 piece Middle Earth LEGO Rivendell built by Alice Finch (of 400,000-piece LEGO Hogwarts fame) and David Frank. I wish I could just shrink myself down to that size and live there. Of course, I said the same thing about my little sister's Ba... / Continue →

    Note: Uncensored version of the shot HERE because some people are squeamish (I heard the girl sitting next to me at the coffee shop spit up a little). This is Xiao Wei's hand and foot. Wei lost his hand to an industrial accident in Changde, China, and, after finally making ... / Continue →

    Because there is somebody out there who is rich and tasteless enough to literally want everything that they own gold-plated, Harrods in London is selling this 24k gold-plated X-Box One for £6000 ($9785). So, for $9,285 more than the regular version you get a shiny box. For re... / Continue →

    Google confirmed on Friday that they purchased Boston Dynamics, the robotic company behind such killers as BigDog, ATLAS and Cheetah. Google plans to harness the power of the killing machines to take over the planet and herald a new age of robotic glory. You know who made the... / Continue →

    These are the Hogwarts houses high heels hand painted by Redditor Smartypants and worn by her sister-in-law akasha446 and the bridesmaids in her wedding. I'm not sure if the girls were actually sorted into the house of the shoes they wore, but I would have stabbed whoever got ... / Continue →
