    Seen here being modeled by a VERY attractive bath towel, an Omni-Tool replica created by designer/extreme cosplayer Chris Myles does it's thing. "What is it's thing?" I don't f***ing know, maybe it's hacking some Geth security or something. "It's just sitting there." MAYBE ... / Continue →

    Because those forest green camo shorts don't hide you on the street as well as you'd like to imagine, a North Carolina company is now designing site-specific camouflage using satellite imagery and drone/ground recon. ZOMG -- tell me you can make me look like a women's sauna. ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a new 3-D laser display that can "print" 3-D images IN MIDAIR. How? Magic. I know I say that a lot, but I'm actually 99% certain this time. The system has a framerate of just 10-15 FPS right now, although the company is working on bumping that up to 24-30... / Continue →

    Note: I had to cut the graphic so it didn't make the Geekologie front page an internet-mile long, hit the jump to see the whole thing. This is an infographic charting humanity's progress on developing the different technologies from Star Trek. For some we're totally there alr... / Continue →

    ...by 2050. The European Aeronautic Defence and Space Company (EADS), which owns Airbus, claims they could have a Mach-4 traveling airplane in the skies by 2050 that could fly passengers around the globe at over 3,000MPH while shitting their pants like babies. The plane - nam... / Continue →

    Harvester beam still under development. Get it? Farm equipment joke! That one goes out to all you yokels in the midwest reading Geekologie on a dial-up connection and daydreaming about corn. Haha, do I know you guys or what? Anyway -- an "attractive" tractor beam. BUSTED ... / Continue →

    Seen here driving like most @$$holes I see around here looking a little too happy for a guy who's still gonna spill scalding coffee on his nuts when the truck in front of him stops, a man demonstrates the luxury of a self-driving car. Like we're supposed to believe he wouldn't ... / Continue →

    Planes: they go fast, get you from here to there, and I have to get preeeeetty drunk to step foot on one. But hopefully not so drunk I pass out under a row of seats at the gate and wake up outside security. *ahem* I'm looking at you, LAX. Somebody touched my butt, I f***ing... / Continue →

    Do I even need to write anything? Just look at the pictures and figure it out, yo. I dunno -- lasers and shit, man. Alien technology. The prototype uses an ultra-short high-intensity burst of laser light to illuminate a scene. The light particles scatter and reflect off a... / Continue →

    Note: Picture is unrelated. Just like my girlfriend and I. Will glowing trees replace streetlights? I doubt it. Still, you never know. If you'd asked me ten years ago if we'd have hover cars by now I'd have been all, "oh hell to the yes we will!" But look around -- what d... / Continue →

    Hoho, looks like this person already beat you to it, Nike. You're too slow on the draw. Also, the kick. Foot joke! Uh-oh, here comes another: Middle Toe: Where the hell have you been? We've been worried sick! Big Toe: At the market, dummy. Oooooh -- is that roast beef?! ... / Continue →
