    This is a video of a guy cutting a giant rubber band ball in half with a hand saw when it seems to come alive. Freaky deaky. I have so many questions. How long did it take to make such a big rubber band ball? Why isn't there a video of you bouncing it before cutting it in h... / Continue →

    This is a video of a precious little scrapheap of a dog using a slow moving stream to play fetch with itself. Apparently the owners were right there watching him too -- he's not just playing by himself because he has to. Which is a relief, because if your dog teaches itself t... / Continue →

    This is a worthwhile video of a red-hot ball of nickel quickly melting its way through a block of ice from the same guy who brought us the red-hot nickel in a cup of water video. The sound effects aren't as rad (but are still pretty cool) in this one, but it's awesome to watch... / Continue →

    Personally, I'm happy just as long as the bread's not moldy, I've never really had a problem with toasters. But apparently a lot of people really struggle with them. Dummies. The Roastie Toaster features a ring of heating elements around its spherical exterior for even bread ... / Continue →

    YES I GAVE HIM AN @$$HOLE! Seen here failing to even get the ball to Cookie Monster's retarded older brother (WHO'S WELL IN FRONT OF THE PLATE), a robot throws the first pitch at last night's Phillies game against the Brewers. But wait, there's an excuse for the fail (isn't t... / Continue →

    Note: Video is after the jump because no reader of mine is getting Force-choked out on the front page. Is that big soccer tournament still kickin'? Killer pun, GW. Thanks, I know. Kidding, that thing deserved a red card. Your face deserves a red card. This is a video... / Continue →

    This is a robot that balances itself on top of a ball. Impressive, but I've seen a clown at the circus do the same thing while juggling. Plus I winged a handful of peanuts at him. Dr. Masaaki Kumagai, director of the Robot Development Engineering Laboratory at Tohoku Gakuin ... / Continue →

    Darth Vader, best known for having his mask removed by his son in Return of the Jedi and looking like a horribly peeled hard-boiled egg underneath, is now a disco ball. Well, his mask is anyway. Spotted at an unknown club, Darth will have you shaking your money-maker quicker ... / Continue →

    Castrol, best known for keeping my ride lubed (double entendre!), went and created a robot to kick the everliving shit out of a soccer ball? Why? Cause they're a bunch of jerks. Is there no end to the effort a company will expend on a promotional stunt? Deemed unsafe for tra... / Continue →

    This is a video of some guy from the New York Post getting to play around with the Star Wars Force Trainer that's set to hit the market in a few months. I posted it for two reasons: 1. the toy is cool and I want one badly and 2. I could have done a much better review. DAMNI... / Continue →

    Impressive, but I would have gone with a triple gainer with a twist. Twisted ankle. I'm so clumsy! Now somebody bring me an ice pack, I threw a hip out humping a dinosaur pillow last night -- AND this morning. I AM A LOVEMAKING MACHINE! Physics WIN [current] Thanks to And... / Continue →

    Well folks, we survived another year. Amazing, I know. It's been one hell of a time, and I have every reason to believe 2009 is going to rock the track pants and Members Only jacket off 2008. Happy New Year! See you in 2020! And by 2020 I mean after my Lasik surgery. HI... / Continue →

    What you're looking at is the new New Years Eve ball to be dropped (they literally should drop it one year -- after setting it on fire. Fireball Island FTW!) in Times Square tonight. Last year, the Times Square Ball got an LED makeover for its 100th anniversary. This year t... / Continue →

    Some fool went and taught a robot how to play Pong. Next thing you know, the crazy bastard will teach the archangel of the apocalypse how to play Donkey Kong, and from there, well, I think you can imagine what happens next. Hint: we all die. I must admit though, I did almost... / Continue →

    The Backball Chair is actually a giant trackball you can use to control a computer. Designed by Interaction Architecture, it was "specifically intended for use in public spaces like airports." Of course, because that makes perfect sense. Seriously, why use a mouse when you c... / Continue →

    Evento's Buzzball is is a giant ball with a seat in it that's being hailed as a one-person roller coaster. At the heart of the Buzzball is a dual motor configuration, enabling the pilot to control the motion and direction of travel via left and right control triggers, which ... / Continue →

    The Taipei 101, once the world's tallest building, sits a paltry 600 feet from a fault line. So is the structure doomed? Nope -- it's rocking a uni-ball of steel. To counteract the forces working against it, architects installed a $4 million, 730-ton tune massed damper, wh... / Continue →

    The Fire Footbag is pretty much a Hackey Sack made out of Kevlar that you douse with kerosene and then kick around until you've burnt the entire neighborhood down. They're similar to these magic balls (but more kickable), and cost $25. THIS PRODUCT IS EXTREMELY DANGEROUS U... / Continue →

    The Peenandgo is a urinal for women. Because flowers and singing, moving clowns just don't cut it for chicks. The unit was designed by Chen-Karlsson and has a ball in it to prevent splashing or something. I thought it was pretty questionable, but I guess they're catching on ... / Continue →

    The Robocup German Open is in full effect (April 21-25) and it's every bit as frightening as you'd expect. The only thing I found comfort in was that the robots are clearly too stupid to distinguish a soccer ball from an orange tennis ball. Those stupid bastards. We're still... / Continue →
