    This is a 3-D recreation of MC Escher's iconic 'Relativity' built in LEGO (six years ago: this one) by Riccardo Zengelmi using 9,000 blocks over the course of 15 days. It kind of hurt my brain to look at for so long. It also kind of hurt my brain to chug both those beers with... / Continue →

    Seen here looking like about 40 fish sticks, a group of fishermen caught this three-eyed Simpsons 'blinky' fish in a lake near a nuclear power plant in Argentina. Jealous cyclops shark is jealous! Per Babel Fish (how appropriate!) translation: "We were fishing and we took th... / Continue →

    DOOOOOOOOOOOO IT! 3-D illusion artist Erik Johansson (not to be confused with Edward Mueller or Julian Beever, who do the same thing) painted this illusion in Stockholm at Sergels torg. It's called 'Mind your step', and appears (from a single angle anyway) to be...A PIT OF DE... / Continue →

    Because honest-to-goodness laser-vision is still another 40 years out (I've been to the future and seen it -- I just didn't understand the technology), scientists are constantly making incremental steps in that direction. The next little "breakthrough"? Contacts that project ... / Continue →

    See how I snuck "eye" into mesmerizing? That required a magic potion. Which reminds me -- I need to pick up some more sun-dried witch's nips the next time I'm at the wizard store. Damn yeah I saw Harry Potter trying to sneak into the adults only section last time I was there... / Continue →

    This is allegedly the world's smallest legible computer font, as designed by computer science professor Ken Perlin. I couldn't read a word of it. What is that, some kind of political manifesto? *whispering* Hoho -- the Declaration of Independence, I knew that. Sing along b... / Continue →

    Note: Video of the trickery after the jump. This is an image of a boombox created out of cassette tape that only looks like a boombox when viewed from the proper angle. Otherwise it just looks like a bunch of metallic rat turds strewn across a kitchen floor. That said, I wat... / Continue →

    Want to look like Dr. Manhattan from 'Watchmen'? Here's what you do: find a magic lamp. Then ask the genie to blow up your wiener like 2X 6X, and paint it blue. BOOM -- it's like you're fighting crime already. Oh, and you're gonna need these contacts. Available from King o... / Continue →

    Note: Click HERE for a full-size version of the image for the full effect. This is a stereoscopic shot of the moon. So if you cross your eyes like you would a Magic Eye picture, you should be able to see our natural satellite in 3-D. Oooooor get frustrated and Hulk-smash you... / Continue →
