    This is 3D projection-mapped ceiling above the center bar at the newly renovated XS Nightclub in Las Vegas. I've never been to Vegas before because I have a feeling it would wind up like Leaving Las Vegas in real life. Still, cool ceiling. It probably makes the perfect thing... / Continue →

    Note: Post originally appeared February 18, 2014 but, SURPRISE, the internet is full of recyclables today and I'm the recycling man. No, no I'm not, but I will look through your garbage for anything that will help me steal your identity. These are shots of the Goleta, Calif... / Continue →

    This is a 1965 Volkswagen microbus that's been meticulously restored and stretched into a limo. It's up for sale on eBay now for $220,000, which could probably get you just about any other car you've ever dreamed of. Maybe two. Maybe even with enough left over for a decent p... / Continue →

    According to a recent statement made by Nike innovation chief (yes, that's a real position) Tinker Hatfield (yes, that's the most appropriate name ever for an innovation chief), Nike will release Back To The Future II self-lacing Air MAGS later this year. No word how much they... / Continue →

    PROTIP: Never skip leg day. Did everybody have a nice New Year's? That's cool, I think I was laying in the shower when the ball dropped. MY balls. HIYO -- I'm an adult now. This is a limited edition (of 500) "realistic" looking 12-inch Popeye figure designed by Head Toys a... / Continue →

    This is the Doctor Who Sonic Screwdriver flatware set available from ThinkGeek. It costs $30 for a spoon, fork and knife. For reference, that's $10 per utensil, or $2 more than I paid in total for a 20-piece set of flatware from IKEA (I got this one). Still, maybe you're ric... / Continue →

    This is the Pillow 13x13x13 IQ Brick (not actually a Rubik's cube, just similar) available from Brando. It costs $320, which is pretty expensive for something I'm inevitably going to throw at the ground as hard as I can, then stab and set on fire. Just saying, you know what h... / Continue →

    This is the Blown Glass Solar System Ornament Set. It includes the sun (not shown) and all nine planets (high-five, Pluto!). Unfortunately, the set costs $375, which is significantly out of my ornament budget this year. I can barely afford to string popcorn together. Beside... / Continue →

    This is a custom yellow gold and diamond octopus tentacle ring designed and crafted by jeweler Jason of Beverly Hills. Pretty cool, right? I've never been much of one to wear jewelry, but I would definitely make an exception for this. Or one of those split-heart BFF necklace... / Continue →

    These are the Milli Chairs designed by Duffy London. They were inspired by millipedes. They cost $2,350 apiece or $3,900/pair. For reference, $2,350 is more money than I will pay for all the furniture I will ever buy in my entire life. You know what this couch cost? The pr... / Continue →

    This is the $13 Samus Amiibo Super Smash Bros toy that recently sold on eBay for a cool $2,500 because she was accidentally made with dual arm cannons instead of just one. Apparently somebody was willing to pay a $2,487 premium for that. So now would be a great time to know s... / Continue →

    Seen here looking like some sort of fossilized dinosaur testicle, the world's largest white truffle hangs out and relaxes before going up for auction next week. The truffle, which was unearthed in Italy by Sabatino Truffles, weighs 4.16-lbs (1.89-kg) and experts (because there... / Continue →

    These are a bunch of Knightscope K5 security robots. They look like a cross between R2-D2, a Dalek, and the kind of buttplug you'd expect to find on a space station. Microsoft already tested a crew of them at its Silicon Valley campus. And you can rent some too, starting as ... / Continue →

    This is the Alien Facehugger Dog Leash made and sold by Etsy shop GCFX. It costs $150, which is a little out of my dog leash budget (I use three shoelaces tied together and a safety pin). Also, the facehugger is actually attached to a black fabric harness, which is hard to se... / Continue →
