    This is a short video of a guy showing off his homemade Star Trek phaser. No clue how he made it, but it does look pretty good as far as homemade phasers go. Mine? Mine looks like a laser pointer taped to a water gun. *squirting* "Is sauce?" Did Spock Vulcan ne... / Continue →

    So apparently somebody started a rumor that the Navy SEALs that stormed Osama Bin Laden's compound were rocking night-vision contact lenses. Personally, I don't believe it. And not just because I know who started the rumor, but I do and he's a dirty liar PLUS I'VE SEEN HIM EA... / Continue →

    Luke Skywalker's can't even do that! Seen here looking suspiciously like it was put on wrong, 24-year old Austrian amputee Patrick Nolastname shows off his new bionic hand. Patrick lost function of his left hand (that's my good one!) after being electrocuted on the job (NOT i... / Continue →

    Is this the future of wheelchairing? Why's it dragging a bong behind it? These questions and more possibly answered in the quote I'm so graciously about to copy/paste: Thomas Ross and Dave Cochrane put together a sleek, rather cool design and even made some practical improve... / Continue →

    Sorry, I'm still chuckling about how funny the title I came up with was. With isn't it all. And that, I think we can all agree, is (the new) testament of my awesome. Anyway, Rolls Royce, a company best known for me owning like two die-cast models of their cars its soul, is r... / Continue →

    Harrison Krix of Volpin Props (who also made the amazingly realistic ADAM syringe) went and constructed an accurate replica of the AER9 Laser Rifle from Fallout 3 out of wood. In 30 hours. With only minimal black magic. I want it. After all, life is all about the pews. Obv... / Continue →

    There will come a time when we all have to wear spraypainted cardboard box robot costumes to prevent detection and subsequent elimination by our mechanical overlords. And we're gonna need names too, just in case we get sucked into a conversation with one of those chatty metall... / Continue →

    I haven't decided if the new XM-25 will be a useful weapon against the robotic uprising yet, but I'm leaning towards *pew pew*. Hook me up government, I pay my damn taxes. Well, I did last year anyways. The system is clever enough to detonate its exploding 25mm bullets withi... / Continue →

    This is a sneak preview of the 3rd generation Kindle robot book. It's pretty much exactly what I expect to see Amazon roll out next year. And speaking of rolling out -- transform! I said transform! *touching breast* Stupid mannequin. The Kindle 3 [collegehumor] Thanks t... / Continue →

    This is a video of the future according to Microsoft. And, despite not owning a Zune, I would totally live there. In a treehouse, bitches, a treehouse. Close your eyes -- can you see it? It looks like Tarzan dry humping Judy Jane Jetson. Microsoft's REAL Vision of the Futu... / Continue →

    The Honda Research Institute Japan, along with ATR and Shimadzu Corporation (all of whom can expect threatening letters from yours truly) has developed a system that makes it possible to control robots with your thoughts alone. Wow, this doesn't sound scary at all. The tech... / Continue →

    The brainiacs at MIT have gone and created a 'sixth sense' device, which is basically a smart phone/camera/projector combo small enough to be worn on your face like my fist. KA-POW! Also, it does stuff, and won't leave you bruised. The device...can turn any surface into a to... / Continue →

    That's right folks, I estimate in a few short months we'll all be able to teleport ourselves to our favorite vacation spots. Or inside a bank vault -- or the women's locker room! The possibilities I'm imagining are staggering, and, for the most part, illegal. Awh yeah -- bre... / Continue →

    The Pentagon is tossing $22 million at developing guided bullet technology that would enable a bullet to change course midflight because it wasn't shot right first in the first place, the wind changed, or the head you were aiming at moved. *closing blinds* Greeeaaaaat. Darpa... / Continue →
