    Because I'm slow like a tortoise sloth, this is an Indiegogo campaign for the production of Solar Roadways, hexagonal solar cells that can be used to replace existing roads, sidewalks, driveways, etc. The solar cells will not only provide clean power to the grid, but also use ... / Continue →

    So many more cat videos to watch. NEED ENERGY. Caffeine: it's a drug. It's a drug and people want it inside them. Most people drink coffee or energy drinks, some people use caffeinated soap in the shower, and other people wake and bake because they don't give a shit about c... / Continue →

    This is an informational graphic depicting the fifteen most coffee drinking occupations. Did yours make the list? Mine didn't. "Writer/editor is number four, dummy." Oh I'm sorry, I was looking for HERO. I have no clue if this is even accurate though because there are zero... / Continue →

    Seen here trying to steal my soul with her stare, a Sony employee demonstrates a new "biological" battery capable of turning cellulose into glucose into energy efficiently enough to power an MP3 player. Me? I'm still cool recharging mine via USB, but what do I know? (SPOILER... / Continue →

    These is a robotic Venus flytrap. It attracts and traps flies using technology and NOT yellow sticky tape (although that does work too and I do let my nephew pick the flies out and play with them). You know the saying, "you can't kill flies with a spear?" Well that's a lie, ... / Continue →

    Energy: it's good to have (just not 70 energy drinks worth). Huffing things: it's fun to do. So naturally, huffable caffeine supplements are a no-brainer. Each Aeroshot contains 100mg of finely-powdered caffeine (~a large cup of coffee) and looks enough like a shotgun shell ... / Continue →

    $9 Soylent Green crackers: not made with people, but with a made with people pricetag. That's a little questionable. But they are packed with spinach and "high energy plankton", so you can at least get your Popeye on knowing you're doing The Krusty Krab a service. Soylent Gr... / Continue →

    The manufacturers of cable boxes/DVR's and cable companies hate the environment so much they don't care how much electricity their shittily designed garbage boxes waste. Or, let's be honest, how well they work. You know how many times I've missed Gossip Girl because their stu... / Continue →

    Faced with the problem of long charge times for electric vehicles vs. the immediacy of pumping gas, lab-coated, taped-glasses scientists at MIT have developed an electric power "goo" that can be pumped into electric cars for an immediate charge. Me? Two boner pills and a beer... / Continue →

    Seen here looking suspiciously absolutely nothing like my basement, indoor weed growing ops like this one are estimated to be responsible for 1% of all US energy consumption -- around $5-billion a year. Which, for the record, I would never pay for an ounce. Not even one grown... / Continue →

    Energy AND protein -- I'm down. 19-year old liar Vitaliy Sulzhik claims he found a dead mouse in the bottom of a Monster Energy drink. YOU SHUT THE F*** UP VITTLES -- I USE THOSE THINGS FOR CHASERS SOMETIMES! Vitaliy Sulzhik had downed the energy drink shortly after buying... / Continue →

    This is a $28 coffee mug from Fangamers (shipping next month) that was designed to look like one of Mega Man's energy tanks. Except now it's your energy tank since coffee is what makes people get up and function in the morning instead of floundering around in bed all day like ... / Continue →

    Whether you're PWNing noobs or just your own little nubbin against the toilet seat fantasizing about how dreamy I must be in real life, the human body needs energy. And while some of us can derive all the necessary sustenance from alcohol and candy, other (read: lesser evolved... / Continue →

    This is a video from the BBC's Bang Goes the Theory in which the host Jem (not to be confused with his sister, Scout) visits the Solar Furnace Research Facility in Southern France and uses solar energy stolen from this spaz to set (instantaneous) fire to a wood plank, melt stee... / Continue →

    Mmmm, liquefied jellyfish. I use it instead of jam on my sandwiches. It's tingly in my mouth. And now it's a key ingredient in developing nano-scale power cells. Don't tell PETA, they'll throw a fish! Scientists say by liquidizing the humble Aequorea victoria -- a glow-in-... / Continue →

    This is a shot of the CoServ Electric headquarters in Corinth, Texas where some early-morning condensation has revealed an alien hideout. Why aliens would decide to set up shop there is beyond me, but I suspect it has something to do with recharging their spaceships. At any r... / Continue →

    Brother (the printer/sewing machine company, not my brother Frank), has developed vibration-powered batteries that promise to stay charged simply by shaking them. Shake Weight battery chargers? I think so! Called the Vibration-powered Generating Battery (maybe in the future ... / Continue →

    The Double Circulator is the latest in flatulence-dissipating technology. Just kidding, it's two fans stuck mid-coitus (been there, done that, managed to cover myself with a sheet before the paramedics arrived). The double-circulator is more than an fan. The device doesn´t j... / Continue →

    I drank this stuff, it was good. It's thick and tastes like Hawaiian Punch concentrate. They recommend you put it in the microwave for 14 seconds to heat it up to body temperate. I did that. That made it warm. It was weird warm. Like licking a fresh wound, but sweeter. I... / Continue →
