    This is a first-person video of some guy jetskiing through a water-filled canyon on Lake Powell. It looks wild, especially since the water is so calm and its reflection so clear that it looks like the jetski is hovering. Me? I would have crashed into a wall and drowned on th... / Continue →

    This is the smartphone case made to resemble the walkie-talkie/holographic map projector iDroid from Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. It's going to be released in Japan this October for both Droids and iPhones for around $74. I'm not really a fan of phone cases because I li... / Continue →

    This is a video of acrobat Kai Hou pulling off a bunch of stunts I didn't know were humanly possible. And to think I can't even pull off a back-flip off the diving board. I'm a f***ing beast at pencils though. Keep going for the worthwhile video and wish you'd run away to jo... / Continue →

    These are a couple videos of Leonardo Da Vinci's (previously only conceptual) Viola Organista being played in real life. The instrument was built by Polish concert pianist Slawomir Zubrzycki from a drawing Da Vinci made almost 500 years ago. 500 years ago -- can you even imag... / Continue →

    This is a video of Danish archer Lars Anderson demonstrating the ancient archery techniques he's been practicing. The key to a lot of them is holding spare arrows in your hand instead of a quiver. Doing so, Lhars can shoot 10 arrows in 4.9 seconds, shoot 11 arrows before the ... / Continue →

    Note: Larger shot HERE, but do yourself a favor and go to Flickr to see a 4000px version for all the detail. This is a composite shot of Saturn created by Gordan Ugarkovic using images the Cassini spacecraft took of the planet earlier this month. Beautiful, right? Hard to bel... / Continue →

    Astronaut Karen Nyberg made this stuffed dinosaur toy for her young son out of scrap supplies she found aboard the International Space Station. Hopefully not anything important like I would have done. "GW -- where did you get that big red button?" I found it. "Found it wher... / Continue →

    This is a verrrrrrry worthwhile video of some beautiful/trippy projection mapping on two moving white boards that make them appear like 3D objects. I suck at explaining things though so you're really just going to have to watch the video to understand. There aren't any specia... / Continue →

    This is a timelapse video of Peter from Slovak Handmade Lab etching a Carl Sagan portrait into a piece of black granite. Carl Sagan not your thing? There's also one of him doing Heath Ledger's Joker. They're both really impressive. So impressive I've decided I want Peter to... / Continue →

    This is a short stop motion video from IBM that they created using SINGLE ATOMS as individual pixels. Do you know how small an atom is? No? Well imagine a bouncy ball. Now imagine a SUPER F***ING TEENY bouncy ball. That's how small an atom is provided you imagined a bouncy... / Continue →

    This is the Moyee Monster Chair created by designer Jason Goh. It's based on a lie his grandmother use to tell him to get him to stop playing with his food. Ha -- being lied to by your family: it's inspirational. ...when designer Jason Goh would play with his food as a child... / Continue →

    In outerspace news, the Curiosity Rover just beamed back some pictures to earth that scientists are saying provide proof-positive evidence that flowing water once existed on the red planet. Cool, now maybe if we time traveled back a billion years we could drink it. Scientis... / Continue →

    This is a small gallery of Monkey Orchids (Dracula simia, vampire monkey -- like those creepy f***ers from The Wizard of Oz). They're found in the highest rainforests of Ecuador and Peru and uncannily resemble little monkey faces. Why? Presumably (and this is just a personal... / Continue →

    Russian photographer Andrey Pavlov takes insane macro pictures of LIVE ants by spending hours and hours playing with them and posing them to get the perfect shot. I...can't even believe half of them are real. Of course I have zero experience posing ants and have only burnt th... / Continue →

    This is a video shot aboard the International Space Station by astronaut Don Pettit showing tiny water droplets orbiting a statically charged knitting needle. Pretty awesome, but also -- practical. Are you thinking what I'm thinking? "Like, about the solar system and life on... / Continue →

    This is a video of a ladybug taking off shot at 7,000 frames/second. It's actually cooler than it sounds though ("good, because it sounds pretty f***ng lame") because you get to see the wings fold out from under its shell or whatever the hell the little red parts with the dots... / Continue →

    Remember those freaky-deaky human eye closeups taken by quantum chaos theoretical physicist/photographer (sweet combo!) Suren Manvelyan? Of course you do, you've got the memory of an elephant. Bear Grylls? He's got the turd of one and he's squeezing it to drink the juice out... / Continue →

    This is a 1,000 popsicle stick stickbomb going off. I swear I posted another one on Geekologie before, but I couldn't find it (UPDATE: Found it. More sticks, but less powerful). Anyway, this thing is crazy -- it looks like a frenzied snake when it's going off. Geez, who kne... / Continue →

    This is a video of a stack of neodymium magnets 'floating' down a length of copper pipe. I watched it like ten times while trying to brainstorm a functional hoverboard design with no luck. Dammit Marty, you've ridden one -- how the f*** do they work?! "Not on water." God yo... / Continue →

    Note: Larger version HERE in case you're confused why it's not a scooter. Vesta, NOT Vespa, dummy! Hey did you know we sent an orbiter to (what else?!) orbit Vesta, a prominent asteroid in the asteroid belt? Me neither, and I like to keep up on space! Also: women's fashion ... / Continue →
