    This is a video of the George Mason University pep band practicing a Rage Against the Machine medley of 'Killing In The Name' and 'Bulls on Parade'. The chick in the red with the heart on the back of her shirt -- she really gets into it. I haven't been so excited about a song... / Continue →

    This is the crowdfunded (seriously) kayak topper that Japanese artist Rokudenashiko fashioned in the shape of her own vagina. Rokudenashiko is trying to end the taboo surrounding female private parts in Japan by creating all sorts of vagina shaped objects. She wants to make a... / Continue →

    This is Norwegian engineer Kåre "Zenta" Halvorsen's MorpHex, a hexapod robot that can transform and roll out in a ball. You may actually recall MorpHex from this post back in 2012, this is just the new and improved version. Or maybe it's the exact f***ing same, I'm not sure. ... / Continue →

    Not these balls mind you -- they would take a forklift! Jk jk, but at least a brown grocery bag. This is the incredible ball-moving machine built by Kawaguchi Akiyuki. Each section is an individual module (often designed by other ball-moving aficionados) that moves the lit... / Continue →

    This is a month long time-lapse of artist Kyle Lambert fingerpainting an ultra-realistic Morgan Freeman using the iPad app Procreate. Me? I've procreated before. Jk jk, amateurcreated. It was awkward and I didn't get paid. Also, I bet this painting actually IS a photograph... / Continue →

    This is the 100,000-piece domino maze built by the Austrian Domino Art group and knocked down last Thursday on Guinness World Record Day. The maze beat the record for the largest domino tower built, with this almost 20-foot, 11,465 domino tower coming down at the end. That wa... / Continue →

    This is a video of a 1:15 scale R/C Airbus A380 taking to the skies at a recent R/C plane show. You know, that seems like it would be a fun thing to attend on a weekend. You know what I attend on weekends? Community service. And not the cool kind like I created a community ... / Continue →

    This is a compilation reel made by domino pros Hevesh5 and Millionendollarbo showing off a bunch of domino maze tricks you don't normally see in domino maze videos. Unless you're a maker of complicated domino mazes yourself, in which case you've probably seen them all and coul... / Continue →

    This is a video of Dan Buckley singing The Nightmare Before Christmas's 'This Is Halloween' in all the character's voices by recording and assembling 66 separate vocal tracks. He does a great job. So great I'm not even going to say I could do better. Not because I couldn't, ... / Continue →

    This is a parody of Rick Astley's 'Never Gonna Give You Up' loosely translated into Klingon and performed in the style of really shitty karaoke. It boggles my mind people actually take the time to do stuff like this but won't take the time to walk their grocery cart to one of ... / 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 →

    This isn't the first time we've seen dogs shaved into different characters, it's just the latest and saddest. I don't think the dogs are necessarily mistreated or anything, I just feel like it's demeaning. All the pictures were taken by photographer Ren Netherland at various ... / Continue →

    This is a video of glassblower and skateboarder Robert G. Burch riding his skateboard through a puddle of molten glass. Why? Presumably to combine his two passions in life. Like me when I'm laying down AND playing video games. Hit the jump for the video.... / Continue →

    Tom Bingham makes custom electric guitars out of the Star Wars spaceship toys he buys at car boot (trunk) sales (aka stolen goods sales). That's cool, but not near as ICE COLD as the ice cream bar I'm eating right now. It's strawberry -- you jealous? No? What if I told you ... / Continue →

    This is a gallery of Star Wars themed origami. Each piece was folded from a single sheet of paper by Martin Hunt. Martin eventually wants to get the licensing rights from Disney to have his original designs published in book form so everyone can share the joy of folding paper ... / Continue →

    This is Chris Todd in his homemade floating hamster wheel boat. It's basically a pontoon boat that's powered by walking in the giant wheel. Chris wanted to walk the thing all 66-miles across the Irish Sea from Wales to the east coast of Ireland, but had to stop halfway due to... / Continue →

    This is a massive domino maze depicting the fall of the dinosaurs as told by domino-lover Flippycat (of Starry Night, Nintendo, laser and wall-themed domino maze fame). It took almost 39 hours of setup over two weeks to complete the scenes and less than a minute and a half to ... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Battle of Hoth recreated in Minecraft with the original audio from The Empire Strikes Back. Whoever made it did a good job. Me? I got a "should have been fired years ago" on my most recent peer evaluation here at work. I don't know who wrote it but *s... / Continue →

    This is a video featuring the latest version of Youtube user akiyuky's Great Ball Contraption (GBC). It can move LEGO balls a total of 31-meters at the rate of one ball per second using 17 different methods of transport. Sadly, none of them were teleporting. Or getting batte... / Continue →

    This is gallery of Middle Earth's Moria faithfully recreated to scale in Minecraft. No clue how long it took, how many people it took, or what they could have accomplished if they were doing something more productive, all I know is it's pretty impressive and I couldn't have do... / Continue →
