    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 LEGO robot CUBESTORMER 3 setting the world record for Rubik's Cube solving. It completes the cube in 3.253 seconds, two seconds faster than its father CUBESTORMER 2's previous record of 5.27 seconds. Of course there's also this robot that can solve any cube... / 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 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 →

    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 →

    This is a video of a robot that can solve any Rubik's Cube combination in under a second. Although, to its discredit, it has to have all the sides of the cube scanned prior -- it just makes the moves in under a second. It also has to have a custom cube with a special indentat... / Continue →

    Jesus, Optimus, WTF did you eat?! Note: Turn the volume down on your speakers, this thing sounds like a tornado. This is a video of a jet-powered rocket truck unleashing what can only be described as the gates of hell before blasting off to 210MPH. I felt the heat THROUGH MY... / Continue →

    Note: No screencap is gonna do this guy justice, so just hit the jump and skip around the video, but prepare to have your mind BLOWN OFF THE SHELF, then watch the second video showing the routine slowed down 2x and prepare to have your brain SHATTERED INTO A MILLION PIECES AND ... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Volkswagen Golf modded and supercharged up to 1,016-horsepower that can do 0 - 60MPH in 2.4-seconds and hit just short of 200MPH. Based on the video from the cockpit, I'm pretty sure that passenger assumed this would be his last ride. And can you blame ... / Continue →

    This is a short video of French bicyclist François Gissy setting a new world record by hitting 263km/h (~163mph) on a hydrogen peroxide powered rocket bike. That seems dangerous. I've probably hit 25mph on my bike before and I felt like my face was going to melt off. Then I ... / Continue →

    This is the Lamborghini Egoista, a 5.2-liter V10, 600-horsepower supercar that can hit 0-60 in under two seconds. It was designed as a one-of-a-kind to celebrate the carmaker's 50th birthday. For my 50th? I dunno, maybe somebody will come scatter flower petals at the site of... / Continue →

    This is a short video of a solider getting sucked out of the back of an airplane/helicopter after his reserve chute catches the wind. One second he's there, the next he's gone. Kind of like my online dating dates when we finally meet at a restaurant. *looking around* Was it... / Continue →

    This is a video of some guy in Japan made of nothing but Redbull and uncut cocaine playing Dance Dance Revolution, or the Japanese equivalent of Dance Dance Revolution. He's quick. If I was ever challenged to a duel I would pay this guy to take my place and kill my enemy. An... / Continue →

    This is the Torq Roadster from electric vehicle company Epic EV. The all-electric trike can hit 0-60MPH in four seconds and handle turns at 1.3-G's. For reference, that's 0.3 more G's than a solo rap album. The Tumbler-esque design is state of the art. A carbon fiber body,... / Continue →

    Because they're all the rage right now, Ferrari is going to manufacturer a million-dollar, 963-horsepower gas/electric hybrid supercar called the *drumroll please* LaFerrari. *womp womp* Wow, and I was this close to putting my name on the waiting list. The car generates ele... / Continue →

    Allegedly 8 Second Spaghetti from Royal Chef can cook in boiling water in 8-seconds. How, I don't know, presumably because it's already been cooked (or made from 100% unnatural, cancer-causing ingredients) and you're just heating it up. Kind of like how SpaghettiO's are ready... / Continue →

    This is a video from National Geographic of cheetahs running in super slow motion. Cheetahs, as I'm sure you're aware, are the fastest land animal and can reach speeds up to 112 - 120 km/h (~70-75MPH). Plus accelerate from 0 - 100km/h (~62MPH) in less than three seconds. Tha... / Continue →

    In 'terrifying if you have to work in it after it's constructed' news, China is planning on building the world's tallest building in only three months. The 220-story skyscraper, named Sky City, is being built by the same company (Broad Sustaining Building) that built this 30-s... / Continue →
