    I'm flying, Jack! This is a video demo of Leap, a $70 gesture control computer peripheral coming out next year and tracks motion within a 4-foot cube with accuracy down to 1/100th of a millimeter. That...is pretty accurate. If I were that accurate at catching mini-marshmallo... / Continue →

    This is a kid posing with his homemade Wolverine claws. He says he made them for $5 out of nothing but a couple old pairs of thrift store ice skates, a couple nails, a couple bolts, and access to an acetylene torch and bench grinder. Really -- and for only $5?! You sure you ... / Continue →

    Look at this guy. You wanna look like this guy? Of course not, nobody in their right mind (or even a zombie's!!!!1) would. Even he doesn't want to, but we've all gotta play with the cards we're dealt (or whisper to the dealer you have a gun). This is a $15 beanie with two r... / Continue →

    Makers-of-everything-sucky Brando, realizing that a computer mouse without a 1.5" digital picture of your cubicle mate's penis (thanks for that, Tony, really) is practically useless, have started manufacturing and selling 'USB Optical Mice with Digital Photo Frames' for $32. I... / Continue →

    Would you drop $50 a month to see as many movies in theaters as you wanted? MoviePass is hoping you will! Me? I don't like going to the movies. Something about sitting in the dark with a bunch of strangers makes me uneasy. I'm always afraid the person behind me is gonna st... / Continue →

    Remember those limited edition Marc Ecko Star Wars hoodies that came out a few years ago? Those were pretty cool (well, except the $100+ price tags). These ones? Not as much. But they are less than half the price, so you won't get as pissed when you burn a hole in the chest... / Continue →

    Seen here being investigated by a group of parent-hating teens, DON-8r is a little donation-soliciting robot that looks like something I'd want to see how far I could kick. Basically he just sits around yelling in this grating robotic voice of his until you insert some change ... / Continue →

    Like this! Granted it's not a new concept because I remember my freshman year of college ('99) my roommate and I used to play Counter-Strike on opposing clans and we'd each hang a bedsheet over the side of our loft so the other person couldn't see you. Which, fun fact: also... / Continue →
