    Meet Les Baugh. Les had both arms amputated at the shoulder after a freak electrical accident 40 years ago (and not from being torn off by an angry bear like I initially suspected). Now he's the first person to successfully use the bilateral shoulder-down modular prosthetic l... / Continue →

    This is a video demonstrating the robotic octopus built by the Foundation of Research and Technology-Hellas. You know, because regular octopuses weren't scary enough. They all look like alien penises to me. "You spend a lot of time thinking about alien penises?" I write Sta... / Continue →

    This is a collection of jewelry designed by artist Jennifer Crupi that forces the wearer to make a particular gesture. You know, just in case you want to always be pointing but don't have the willpower to do it on your own. There's a bunch of different versions after the jump... / Continue →

    This is a newly discovered species of Yeti (NOT Batman) crab. It's similar to the other hairy-armed Yeti crabs except this one grows edible bacteria on its arms by methodically waving them around in front of deep sea methane vents. And speaking of deep sea methane vents: blue... / Continue →

    In the future robots will do your clapping for you after they've torn you limb from limb and are harvesting your life force to power the Matrix or whatever. So you'll at least have that going for you. A good job and loving relationship? LOLOL! Masato Takahashi of Japan's Ke... / Continue →

    Seen here in his audition tape for that Hugh Jackman 'Rock Em Sock Em Robots' movie that just came out, an old man demonstrates Raytheon-Sarcos' new "slave arms", a pair of giant robotic arms that can mimic the movement of a user's. You...probably don't want to get hit by one.... / Continue →

    Ever wanted to see two industrial robots swinging lightsabers at each other like some sort of futuristic mating ritual? Hey, as long as they both sever each other's arms off, I'm down. Amirite, Luke? High fi-- whoa, since when did you replace your mechanical hand with a hook... / Continue →

    If I lost an arm I can't say I'd run out to have the thing replaced with a tentacle. That's just asking for people to stare (and children to run screaming). No, I'd opt for a laser cannon before anything else. You know, or a plastic cutlass if times are tough. Still, maybe ... / Continue →

    Christian Kandlbauer, seen here, lost both arms after a jolt of 20,000 volts required both be amputated. Then, in 2006, he was fitted with a mind-controlled bionic arm (left, and regular prosthetic, right) and was able to pass his driving test with a specially modified vehicle... / Continue →

    According to a recent report, Neanderthals had giant, Popeye-like right arms, possibly due in part to an all-meat diet. I call the heart! Remains of an early Neanderthal with a super strong arm suggest that Neanderthal fellows were heavily pumped up on male hormones, possessi... / Continue →

    I've seen girlfriend pillows before but nothing as sad and pathetic looking as this one. I mean, she doesn't even have a head. Or two arms. And why do her breasts look like two softballs? But on the upside, she is wearing a dishwashing glove so she probably knows her way ar... / Continue →

    Note: Video is after the jump. This is a video of an octopus stealing some guy's video camera while he was trying to film it. And if that weren't bad enough, the tentacled bastard proceeds to swim away with the thing and dude has to give chase to get his equipment back. Geez... / Continue →

    The Toe Mouse is the brainchild of Liu Yi and was designed for people who have lost the use of their arms. Oooooor for people who like to masturbate with both hands (I'm on to you!). Toe Mouse! [engadget] Thanks to Mr John and rivermind, who are holding out for knee mice. L... / Continue →

    From the 'There's No Way F***ing Way This is Actually A Real Product, Please God Tell Me This Is A Fake Commercial' department comes the Hug E Gram, by far the biggest piece of shit I've seen in recent history (and I stepped in Bigfoot scat hiking over the weekend). The pate... / Continue →

    These are two dueling dinos as imagined by deviantARTist IsisMasshiro. As you might be able to tell, it looks less like an epic dino-fight and more like a moderate catfight. Which, true story, two women got into at the bar last weekend. Now I'm not saying I was encouraging t... / Continue →

    Because everybody deserves the right to shoot animals, a 46-year old quadriplegic will now be hunting in New Jersey with the assistance of a mouth-operated 12-gauge shotgun. Jamie Cap, 46, was injured in an accident 30 years ago while playing American football. A head-on tackl... / Continue →

    I say yes, but Jack Conrad, a vertebrate paleontologist at the American Museum of Natural History in New York, is arguing otherwise. Don't act like you know dinosaurs. I KNOW DINOSAURS! "Doesn't matter," Conrad says. "There's no chance that any human alive could win." The T. ... / Continue →

    Even while I write this the clock is ticking. There are only 13 hours left to order this shirt (or save the image so you can blow it up and print it yourself) before it's gone forever. And, because I'm slow, by the time this actually gets posted you'll probably have less than... / Continue →
