    This is Angela C's tattoo written in Gallifreyan, the language of the Time Lords. Their language is cool because the letters and words form what appear to be little planets on some intergalactic treasure map. The tattoo allegedly reads, "Against all odds I will Rise, Against ... / Continue →

    This is Luna, a personal, app-enabled indoor planetarium that can project the real-time night sky as viewed from anywhere on earth. I wanna see what it looks like from Antarctica! "Meh, it's overrated." Don't you ruin this for me, penguin! The Luna is a real product coming ... / Continue →

    This is a vintage photo of a young Bill Nye doing science in 9th grade. Not to brag or anything, but I also did science in 9th grade. "You set the chemistry lab on fire." I was EXPERIMENTING. "With arson?" I didn't want to go to gym class next period because the other boys... / Continue →

    This is a pretty awesome looking video (and I never say that) for the water-based Hoverboards made by Zapata Racing (previously: their Flyboard). Hey McFly you bojo, hoverboards don't work on water! Apparently these ones do though. As a matter of fact they only work on water... / Continue →

    This is the $350 eCool cooler. What does the e stand for? Environmental? No clue. Who cares anyways. The cooler, which is buried about 4-feet underground, can hold up to 24 cans which can be loaded or extracted via hand-crank. How cold the drinks get depends on the tempera... / Continue →

    This is a cute video from animator Hombre_McSteez in which he augments reality with cartoons by drawing stop-motion animations on clear cels and holding them over real-life action. It's worth a watch. Unless you're a dingleberry. If you're a dingleberry don't bother because ... / Continue →

    This is a video of one of Vat19's 5-pound Gummi Bears producing a fireworks extravaganza in hot potassium chlorate. I remember my high school chemistry teacher was going to perform this same experiment. The only problem is he was going to use Watermelon Sour Patch Kids, and I... / Continue →

    This is a short video of Redditor LivingOaks' mom's eyeball. It has a naturally occuring blood vessel that spells love in cursive. Although personally I think it actually spells lovem. Still, I'm jealous the blood vessels in my eyes don't spell anything. Maybe if I pop a fe... / Continue →

    This is a small series of tattoos that appear 3-D. There's this spider, a butterfly and a ladybug, as well as a couple that make it look like the person's skin is peeling off to reveal something else underneath. I thought the treasure map one like that was pretty cool. Besi... / Continue →

    Note: Link to livefeed of the feeder HERE. This is Plipshow, a livefeed of a birdfeeder that was designed to look like a little coffee shop. It's the brainchild of photographer Magne Klann. My brainchild? Napkins made specifically for chili. During daylight hours, avian vi... / Continue →

    This is the surreal elephant LEGOmaniac Jin Kei made to resemble one from Salvador Dali's iconic Los Elefantes (picture of the original painting after the jump). Pretty cool, right? I'd proudly display that in my apartment. Or on my desk at work. I mean, if I had a desk. I... / Continue →

    I know a wire bending machine doesn't sound that exciting, but you are wrong. This shit is HYPNOTIC. Like, on the count of three you will give me a kiss. One...two...three. Okay, where was my kiss? Screw it, I'm pulling out the big guns. *dangling pocket watch* When I s... / Continue →

    This is a video demo of the Caterpillar P5000 Power Loader costume from the original Aliens movie that father Carsten Riewe built for him and his daughter (previously: this one). It took him 100 hours to complete. That's a lot of time hanging out in the garage. Me? I love ... / Continue →

    Meet drummer Jason Barnes. Jason lost part of his right arm in an accident, so Georgia Tech professor Gil Weinberg built him robotic prosthesis so he could still drum his face off and become a rock star. Hell, I haven't even heard him play yet and I'd still throw my bra at hi... / Continue →

    This are Erik Aberg's Ghostcubes, a bunch of different interconnected cardboard cube designs that behave in magical ways. You really just have to watch the video to appreciate them, because they're hard to describe. Kind of like your beauty. Like, radiant doesn't do you just... / Continue →

    This is Austrian designer Klemens Torggler demonstrating one of the kinetic sculpture doors he's created. It's pretty cool. And it is practical from a 'It doesn't swing into the room and take up any space' standpoint. But it's not very practical from a locking standpoint. I... / Continue →
