    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 →

    Seen here falling for the ol' fish head on a hook trick, the world's first documented hybrid shark stares into the camera with a googly eye. Scientists believe the species is humping around in direct response to climate change, which I believe. It's too f***ing hot in here, I... / Continue →

    This is a Pikachu/Cthulhu hybrid. I'm calling it Pikathulhu, but you can call it whatever the hell you want. "I'm calling it butt-ass ugly." That's fine, I just wouldn't say it to his face. "I'm not scared!" Ha, this coming from the guy who won't even make a phone call wit... / Continue →

    Remember UNO, the self-balancing motorcycle/Segway hybrid? We posted about it way back in April of '08. Don't be too hard on yourself if you don't remember, that was more than three years ago -- an eternity by butterfly standards. Well the latest incarnation, the UNO 3, is m... / Continue →

    That wasn't actually a joke. You get a zedonk. Half zebra, half ass, 100% honky-tonk-zedonk-a-donk. I hate to see you go, but I love to watch you leave! Woo-wee, shut my mouth, slap yo' gradma! A zedonk, an unusual cross between a donkey and a zebra, is attracting attentio... / Continue →

    What do you get when a 5" record and a CD get together and have the sexes? Nothing silly, records and CDs can't breed! Now iPods -- oh boy. They don't just Touch. See what I did there? I'm practically unstoppable. Jeff Mills latest release, The Occurrence, is pressed on... / Continue →

    Seen here sulking because his likeness didn't make the Three Coywolf t-shirt, is a coyote/wolf hybrid. Personally, I would have named them wolfoties, but that's because I'm awesome. Oh, wait, per Wikipedia: "Where the cross-breeding of animals is concerned, the father's spec... / Continue →

    The Cartrider was designed by Jaebeom Jeong and combines a shopping cart and trike. That way you can do your shopping faster, and while seated. Alternatively, you can just use one of the motorized scooters that grocery stores have available for disabled patrons and play the g... / Continue →

    Yep, somebody pimped out a Prius. To the max. The thing has 20" rims, inverted Koenigsegg doors, what appears to be an ion cannon, a billion speakers, a couple computers, alien technology, an engine, and seats. Allegedly, the powertrain is the only thing left unmodified. W... / Continue →

    This is a ad from a campaign designed by the Bed & Breakfast Advertising Agency for Toyota's Prius. It uses the tagline "Well, at least he drives a Prius" as if driving a Prius makes up for tossing a body in the river (which it totally does). There are two more after the jump... / Continue →

    The problem with traditional scramjet planes (planes with the potential of hitting Mach 12-24) is they require supersonic airflow in order to function. So getting up to Mach 4 is a problem. That's why they've typically been piggybacked on other planes to get up to speed, and ... / Continue →

    The MonoTracer looks like a covered motorcycle. And that's pretty much what it is. It features an aerodynamic cockpit that reduces the bike's drag, and seats two (one behind the other). It looks alright. Its 130 horsepower engine gets it going to 60 in 5.7 seconds and maxes ... / Continue →

    Here at Geekologie we've seen flying cars in the past, and here comes another. The Milner Aircar can be both flown and driven. The $450,000 vehicle is capable of going up to 200 mph at 25,000 ft and 85 mph at 0 ft. This is great and I definitely need one. That way on long t... / Continue →

    This is a video of a hybrid Mario game with some 2D Halo enemies thrown in. During the video there's a bunch of text mentioning the improvements it'll undergo to make it better. I don't really know what to think of the whole thing. However I do know that the sounds the enemi... / Continue →

    We reported the Aptera and its 300mpg claims back in September, and now Popular Mechanics magazine has had the chance to drive one and they say the thing is legit. The all electric version is slated for release in 2008 and will cost around $30,000. The hybrid 300mpg model wil... / Continue →

    Utah based Sarcos spent six years developing this exoskeleton bodysuit capable of giving an average person superhuman strength. I must admit it looks pretty bad-ass. The suit mimics everything you do, making it way easier to lift and move heavy objects. In the future the com... / Continue →

    The Skype Travel Mouse is a mouse with an integrated phone. It features a 128 x 64 pixel LCD display for caller ID, etc. and a sliding numeric keypad. I don't use Skype myself, because I live in a tree house and make all my calls with a rusty soup can and a long piece of string... / Continue →

    I don't know what it is with Ukrainians and building unusual wooden things, but Vasily Lazarenko has gone and built himself a car. Under the wood it's a 1981 Opel, but on top of the wood it's a confusing looking sedan/convertible hybrid. Like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. I mean... / Continue →

    Some guy modded his Prius into an 8-seater. It took over 200 hours of fabrication and cost around $10,000. It allegedly still gets 50 MPG. I don't really know what to say, except good for him. Notice how I'm not calling this thing a limo? That's because it's not. I did some inv... / Continue →
