    This is a video of 19-year old Feliks Zemdegs setting the new world record for solving a 7x7 Rubik's Cube. His time? 2 minutes, 23.55 seconds. I don't even think I could pick up a Rubik's Cube that fast. Also, I like how they keep the Rubik's Cube hidden under a bucket befo... / Continue →

    Seen here being modeled with a commando chick appropriately dressed for combat (provided life is a comic book), this is Howe and Howe's Ripsaw EV2 Extreme Luxury Tank. It costs "well into the 100s of thousands depending on desired luxury and performance packages" and looks li... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Guinness World Record stick bomb, consisting of 30,849 sticks exploding in 30 seconds. That is a lot of sticks. No wonder stick prices are through the roof right now, these people bought them all. Now what am I supposed to glue to the outside of an emp... / Continue →

    Z-Type is a Space Invaders inspired speed typing game that has you shooting and destroying alien ships by typing words. It's pretty addictive. Plus it gives you your typing speed and accuracy once you die. I didn't die though, I just stopped playing so I could write this art... / Continue →

    This is a video of the bipedal Raptor robot, a two legged predator capable of speeds up to 46km/h (~28.6MPH). For reference, Hussain Bolt tops out at 27.44MPH (~44km/h). That means this little f***er could easily catch up to my out of shape ass and attempt murder. Only ATTEM... / Continue →

    So apparently there's an Easter egg in Google maps that suggests traveling by dragon if you're trying to get from Brecon Brecons in South Wales to Snowdon in Wales (links to actual map). Amazingly, the trip is estimated to only take 21 minutes by dragon, and a whopping 3.5-hou... / Continue →

    A new tech start-up claims they've developed a cell phone charger that can fully charge a phone in 30-seconds. For reference, that is 29-seconds slower than the cell phone charger I'm developing with the help of alien technology. "GW? Why is there a curly phone cord poking o... / Continue →

    This is the R/C Bullet, a radio controlled car built by Nic Case, who just set the world record for fastest R/C car when it hit 188.87MPH. For reference, that is infinitely faster than I am running right now (I'm laying on the couch in the break room). There's a video of the ... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Olympic men's 500m speed skating final with Mario Kart Double Dash weapon effects added. It makes me wish every video had Mario Kart weapon effects added. One time my mom asked me clean up the video she took of my little sister's dance recital and I edi... / Continue →

    This is a video of a tether car (a little nitro powered car attached by wire to a pivoting stake in the center of the track to take advantage of centrifugal force) getting up to 205MPH. It's not the first time we've seen a tether car breaking 200MPH on Geekologie, it's just th... / Continue →

    Remember Cheetah, DARPA's 28-MPH robot that was confined to running tethered on a treadmill? Well now they've ditched the tether and created WildCat, a 16MPH (read: faster than you) running robot that can run free and as long as its on-board motor will allow. Scared yet? You... / Continue →
