    WARNING: A lot of dirty words, because dirty words make things seem realer. This is an entirely (and poorly) staged video of a dad running over his deadbeat son's XBox game collection with the lawnmower. The whole thing is cringe-worthy, particularly the very beginning to the... / Continue →

    Some theaters in China are experimenting with "bullet screens," a service that allows moviegoers to text messages on screen while the movie is playing. You know, because I care what the person next to me is thinking. God willing, they'll at least have their phones on dim and ... / Continue →

    This is a fake video from HUVrTech featuring Christopher Lloyd (Doc Brown), Tony Hawk and a handful of other celebrities (including Terrell Owens and Moby) lying about riding a real hoverboard. The CG is decent, but the whole thing is impossible to believe. Plus they made the... / Continue →

    In news that made me question my belief that all water parks are either pirate or tropical island themed, South Korea has announced it's building a $625-million robot themed water park in Incheon. Wow, sounds like a great place to accidentally get electrocuted. Among [Robot L... / 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 →

    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 →

    This is the $75 Fisher-Price Ipad Apptivity Seat (already in existence: an iPad potty chair). It's a baby chair with an iPad dock that dangles over your little bundle of bad vision. Will it help your child grow up to be a technology professional? No. Will it give them somet... / Continue →

    This is Snake Venom from Brewmeister. It's a 67.5% alcohol beer. It also costs £50 (~$80) for a 9-ounce bottle, so it's probably not the most cost effective choice for getting drunk. Which is why I'm gonna stick to drinking hand sanitizer and mouthwash. Please nobody actual... / Continue →

    Number one at number two. Inspired by the 'Modern Toilet' restaurant in Taipei, the 'Magic Restroom Cafe' has just opened in Los Angeles county, and offers westerners the same shit-themed experience. Hands down the worst place to take a first date. Wow, you're even more be... / Continue →

    These are the Kaori-chan and Shuntaro-kun robots developed by CrazyLabo and the Kitakyushu National College of Technology in Japan. Equipped with air-quality monitors, Kaori-chan (the lady) sniffs your breath and Shuntaro-kun (the dog) your feet, and respond accordingly. And ... / Continue →

    This is a series of miniature furniture pieces made out of fake human skin by artist Jessica Harrison. Why? No clue, but the loveseat looks like it was made from the skin around an @$$hole. A buttloveseat. I would totally curl up and nap on that. Hit the jump for three mor... / Continue →

    How do you make a BigDog quadruped robot even more terrifying? Simple, add a cinderblock-throwing head attachment. It can actually chuck them pretty far too -- probably about as far as I could. So if it ever comes down to a cinderblock throwing duel to the death, it could be ... / Continue →

    This is a video of two autonomous quadrocopters that can toss a spear back and forth and balance it on its end. These things are seriously getting out of control. I don't care what the government tries to tell you, there's no legitimate human-interest purpose for spear throwi... / Continue →

    This is a video from reader Beau in his record-breaking attempt to customize the most expensive Starbucks coffee drink (previously it was this $26.30 one set by another reader. Also, why is this a Geekologie trend? I didn't sign up for this) . The 52-ounce (which, for the re... / Continue →

    In what possibly might be the best ice sculpture to have at a wedding ever, this is a full size Toyota Landcruiser carved out of a block of ice. It even has an open door so you can sit in it and make the steering wheel look even more like it was molded out of shit because peop... / Continue →

    This is a series of anamorphic illusions. Basically they're photo-realistic prints that, when viewed from just the right angle, look like what they're supposed to. But if you move them, you see just how distorted the actual image is. Be careful though, you might get a headac... / Continue →

    This is a video of a HiBot ACM-R5 robotic snake going for a little skinny dip. For the record, I would NOT get naked and swim with it. I did go skinny dipping with a bunch of girls in college though. I'm lying. I guess it could have happened in an alternate reality though -... / Continue →

    Paleontologists have discovered a new dinosaur (the one in the rear having a snack) and named it Sauroniops pachytholus, after Sauron from Lord of the Rings. Why? Because they are NERDS. Personally, I would have named it after one of the characters in Jurassic Park, but tha... / Continue →

    Because people are sick, Dots, an experimental sushi restaurant (WTF is an experimental sushi restaurant and does it involve mutants?) in Vienna, Austria has a one way mirror where men using the urinals can look into the sink area (not the actual stalls) of the women's room. W... / Continue →

    Because people are SICK and TWISTED, here's a pair of shoes that have 1,050 denture teeth embedded in the soles. Can you imagine the sound they must make walking on pavement? Not a good one. That said, I just made a pair with teeth I stole from the dentist because the hygien... / Continue →
