    This is the soundproof and airproof box that Portuguese artist João Onofre invites metal bands to play in as a performance piece. The bands play until they run out of air. No word if João is secretly trying to eradicate all the bands, but I bet with a little research we'd dis... / Continue →

    The Chinese government is going to start selling bottled and canned air to tourists (previously: this businessman doing it) starting June 20th in an attempt to address its growing air pollution problem. I'm not sure that's really addressing the underlying problem. Complimenta... / Continue →

    This is the $250 Bedjet Bed Heater & Fan (currently a Kickstarter project). It blows hot air under your covers to keep you warm at night so a lover's cold foot doesn't lead to a breakup. I know that at least a fan-only version of this has existed for awhile because I remember... / Continue →

    Ever wanted to watch a diver knock over a stack of rocks with an air bubble ring? Well you are IN LUCK, because that's exactly what this is. Unfortunately, when reached for comment Ariel was devastated to find out someone knocked over her art installation. Now might not be th... / Continue →

    This is a short video of a Swiss Airbus A340 landing at the Zurich airport in heavy fog. Which, as far as fog goes, is probably airplane pilots' least favorite kind. Me? It's my favorite because it makes sneaking around the neighborhood playing ninja assassin easier. Thanks... / Continue →

    In a scene kind of but not really straight out of Spaceballs, Chinese recycling entrepreneur and philanthropist Chen Guangbiao has begun selling canned air in Beijing to bring attention to the city's poor air quality and encourage citizens to help protect the environment. Chen... / Continue →

    This is a video of a Huffington Post reporter playing a game of Fruit Ninja on a Displair, a motion-controlled display projected onto a cloud of vapor. Obviously, Fruit Ninja was the perfect game to play because it really allows you appreciate the potential applications of a s... / Continue →

    Doubles as a love doll for serious gun nuts, I'm just saying. This is a $30 (currently on sale for $15) inflatable minigun arm from ThinkGeek. It makes it look like you have a minigun for an arm. No, no it doesn't. It makes it look like you have a pool float for an arm. St... / Continue →

    This is the conceptual Air Umbrella from designer Je Sung Park. The idea is that it will blow a canopy of air above the holder that repels rain. Except that will never happen. Now I'm not saying somebody needs to brush up on their physics, but that little air-shield is gonna... / Continue →

    Similar but slightly different than the other versions of airless tires we've seen, Bridgestone is hard at work trying to bring an airless, puncture-proof tire to market. Aaaaaaaand this is what they've got so far. Puke green rims FTW! The idea is similar to Michelin's Tweel... / Continue →

    This is a video of a new 3-D laser display that can "print" 3-D images IN MIDAIR. How? Magic. I know I say that a lot, but I'm actually 99% certain this time. The system has a framerate of just 10-15 FPS right now, although the company is working on bumping that up to 24-30... / Continue →

    This is a giant balloon Spinosaurus created by Larry Moss. Larry calls his balloon art "airigami" and "the art of folding air" (balloon artists: they can be pretentious). I just call it balloon art. Also, great for a kid's birthday party. Hey mister hey mister -- I want a w... / Continue →

    'Big Trouble In Little China' screencaps: never not appropriate. So apparently New Zealand (NOT Polish) truck driver Steven McCormack fell between the cabin and trailer of his rig during an inspection, landing on the nozzle of a compressed air hose, which subsequently pierced ... / Continue →

    The Double Circulator is the latest in flatulence-dissipating technology. Just kidding, it's two fans stuck mid-coitus (been there, done that, managed to cover myself with a sheet before the paramedics arrived). The double-circulator is more than an fan. The device doesn´t j... / Continue →

    NOTE: Video is after the jump because it's just too explosive for the front page. Also, some dude yells "SHIT!" when the thing goes off so be sure to turn your speakers up loud enough for your boss to hear. This is a video of some idiot sitting in a chair atop an airbag his f... / Continue →

    Ever wanted to float around the world in a pyramidal airship filled with enough hydrogen to burst into flames and OH THE HUMANITY! Towering kite-shaped airships could herald a new era of luxury transport following the introduction of the Aircruise concept. Standing 30 metres t... / Continue →

    Hot on the heels of yesterday's 'No More Hiding Dungeon Master's Guides In You B-Hole' story comes these giant inflatable D20 dice. Each 17-inch die takes only a minute to inflate, and even less to deflate with a pocketknife. $12 get's the ball die rolling. And, since it is ... / Continue →

    We've already seen a couple different approaches to improving the mousetrap here on Geekologie, both of which were questionable at best. And here comes another! God, just zappity-zap those bitches with laser vision like a normal damn person. Built by a bloke called Jake East... / Continue →

    The Bagel Dome (Dome Dome Dome) is a $40 battery powered vacuum dome made to keep bagels and other oxygen-hating perishables fresh (JUST USE A DYSON, GOD). I contacted the manufacturer and the lady on the phone said it also works for donuts but I have my doubts. Which is exac... / Continue →
