    This is the 'Ark Nova', an inflatable and easily transportable concert hall that can fit 500 patrons and I'm trying really hard not to say looks like Grimace's @$$hole. Dammit, I kind of already did, didn't I? I suck at keeping secrets. It measures 98 feet by 118 feet and fe... / Continue →

    Seen here performing in somebody's decrepit basement circus, a little robot executes a quadruple backflip dismount from a horizontal bar. If you couldn't tell, this is a composite image I made using a couple in-flip action shots. Will robots start taking home gold in the Olym... / Continue →

    Japanese robotics lover Dr. Guero (of robot-riding-a-bicycle infamy) is back at it, this time with a two-legged balancing robot that can walk a tightrope. It's creepy how human-like it balances itself by waving its little stick thingies around. "Those are its arms." YES -- i... / Continue →

    This is an ad for Qualcomm's Snapdragon smartphone processing chip featuring a bug (and arachnid!) circus charging a phone with their incredible feats of bravery. Ooooooor crawling. It was mostly crawling. I couldn't really tell what was real or fake (praying mantis pedaling... / Continue →

    This is the first official commercial for the 'Batman Live' arena show. Based on it alone, if I had to choose between going to see it or a monster truck rally, I would probably go with Batman unless I found out that car-eating robot was going to be at the rally, in which I wou... / Continue →

    This is a disturbing video of a robot that can "juggle" two ping-pong balls using a paddle and a whole bunch of human-killing algorithms. I know the screencap looks like there might actually be four or five balls, but that's just because the little f***er is so damn fast. Acc... / Continue →

    Magic balls: every wizard has them. And now you can too thanks to the Fushigi! WTF's a Fushigi? Just read this insightful review: Dudes, if you ever want a relationship with a member of the opposite sex, do not start "Fushigiing". Nothing says "I'm a nerdy social leper" lik... / Continue →

    This is a video of Oli Lemieux doing some wild ass trampolining plus wall walking and other ninja-y stuff while practicing for a Cirque du Soleil show. It's pretty cool but I could do it all twice as good but I would never film it because I'm modest. Also, the most handsome m... / Continue →

    Dunlop, in a move to prove that their tires won't explode even while upside-down, made a giant loopty-loop and had some tiny car ride through it. Not much more to say, except I could have done two consecutive loops. On fire. While banging a dinosaur. In the backseat. Loop-... / Continue →

    This is a video of Bizkit the sleepwalking dog. You should watch it, it's funny and sad at the same time. SPOILER ALERT: The dog sleepwalks into the wall. I originally thought it was cruel, but then watched the rest of the user's videos and they film the dog all the time, so... / Continue →

    This isn't a gadget or gizmo. It is, however, awesome. It's an elephant painting a picture of an elephant -- holding flowers! Now I'm not saying that this pachyderm is smarter than a human, but it's definitely smarter than all my friends. Who, if you must know, are a rag-ta... / Continue →

    The Do Swing is a trapeze chandelier. It's currently conceptual but you could probably make your own as long as you found a solid stud running in the ceiling somewhere. Blah, blah, blah are those coke whores stretched out on the table? Why wasn't I invited to this party? Th... / Continue →
