    PROTIP: Make sure to turn the volume on in the lower right corner before complaining about how the burp was near-silent and you could do way better. This is a short Vine video from the Guinness Book of World Records featuring Paul Hunn belting out a 109.9 decibel burp (about t... / Continue →

    This is The Hornster, an $8,000 bicycle with a 178-decibel Airchime KH3A train horn attached powered by a SCUBA tank. For reference, 140db can cause permanent hearing damage, and the average shotgun blast is around 170db. Not cool. You honk at me with this thing and 1. I'll ... / Continue →

    This is a vest with an integrated 8-inch subwoofer. You know, because carrying a boombox around on your shoulder apparently isn't cool enough anymore. *rambles on about the good old days until you get bored and leave so I can finally strip down to the flesh and drink in peace... / Continue →

    Now I know what you're wondering, "WTF SORT OF SORCERY SHITTERY IS THIS?" And I'm right there with you. As a matter of fact, we're holding hands. No, no we're not. But I am trying to inconspicuously touch your butt with my leg. "You're that guy from the bus!" FUFUFUFUUUUUU... / Continue →

    Seen here serenading gravel, a water-boatman celebrates being the world's loudest animal (NOT largest testicled) in relation to body size. How do they do it? The same way you would if you could -- strumming their wieners. *performs Dueling Banjos with a bro* Scientists from... / Continue →

    Noise Snare is a system designed for collecting audio evidence (and the license plate numbers) of vehicles running louder than a certain decibel level. No word what happens if you cruise around with your horn blaring, but my guess is drive exactly like I do. Noise Snare was i... / Continue →

    Helicopters are loud as shit and a lot of times I have to cover my ears with my hands on the helipad waiting for my pilot to bring the bird down. It gets annoying, especially when you've got two briefcases full of gold bullion handcuffed to your wrists, WHICH I ALWAYS DO. Hel... / Continue →

    The Sonic Bomb alarm clock is powerful enough to raise the dead. Why? For one, it comes with a 113dB alarm (louder than a jackhammer). But if that's not enough to wake you from your beauty fugly rest, it also flashes a bedside lamp on and off and has a 12-volt bed vibrator. ... / Continue →

    A couple of Danish gamers (Danishers), got the SWAT team called because they were playing a first person shooter too loud one night. Thankfully, they weren't rocking any Wiimote-gun mods. As far as we can make out from this report, two young men from Valby near Copenhagen wer... / Continue →

    This isn't actually made from real bones (although for $22,000 it damn well should be), but it is an accurate skeletal statue of a young Tyrannosaurus E-rex (it does me anyway). Hit the jump to see the statue's movement and hear its roar, both of which are pretty freaking impr... / Continue →

    First the Leia sex statue, then R2 and C-3PO replicas, and now, Vader. The 4-foot, 150lb bronzed bastard was cast by Lawrence Noble and is pat of a limited edition of 30 pieces. Each costs $18,000, which I wouldn't even pay for a peanut butter sculpture of Chewbacca bending J... / Continue →

    The DJ Mobile was built by Dutch artist Olaf Mooij and looks like the lovechild of a subcompact that f***ed a rocketship. The deafening piece was inspired by a song called "God is a DJ" and the Pope-mobile. I'd prefer the bulletproof bubble myself, but I have a lot of enemies... / Continue →

    The shouting vase is a $79 jug that you yell into after you stub your toe on the coffee table or your wife cooks your eggs the wrong way. It drastically reduces the volume of your screaming, as is evident from the scientific picture in the bottom right. Turn your loudest, m... / Continue →

    The Reppo II Backpack is a product design by Joonas Saaranen. As you may be able to tell being the astute observer that I know you are, it's a hardshell backpack with speakers. It was designed with those people in mind that want to subject you to their music no matter how muc... / Continue →

    If there are two things I wish I could do at work they would definitely be 1. drink (well, openly), and 2. fire a cannon. And now thanks to the 25-Inch Field Cannon one of my wishes can become reality. This cannon features an automatic charger mechanism for rapid, multiple f... / Continue →

    The Otto is a device that you can attach to almost anything via its suction pads/magnets and listen to noises that would otherwise be inaudible. I really, really want one. I used a stethoscope to listen to my Sea Monkeys, but it sucked because you have to be right up against ... / Continue →

    I don't have trouble waking up in the morning because I have a cat that lets me know it’s time to rise by sticking his b-hole to my face. But if you don't have such a considerate cat then maybe you need something a little more serious. How about a fire bell alarm clock? I can... / Continue →

    Belkin's USB Laptop Alarm is questionable and funny looking. It costs $25. Basically you attach the base to a sturdy object and plug the USB cable into your computer. If someone disconnects the laptop without first inserting the magic key then an alarm sounds. If someone (y... / Continue →

    Nick Rodrigues, a Boston artist, has developed the Personal Cell Phone Booth. If you're making or receiving a call you pull this clunky bastard out and put it on over your head. That way no one else has to listen to you talk about why your boss sucks or what you're making for... / Continue →
