    This is the $36,000 robotic desk clock available from MB&F. The piece is limited to 99 pieces, or $3,560,000 in gross profit provided they sell them all. For reference, that is more than I would make in my entire life if I lived to be 800. Did I mention it just tells time? ... / Continue →

    This is a giant Bowser LEGO mech built by cool dude Zane Houston. I'm not gonna lie, if Bowser used this thing to kidnap the princess I'd probably just let her go and start banging Toad instead. Years of battling Mario and Luigi has taken its toll on Bowser; to compensate he ... / Continue →

    Seen here about to make two heads roll at once, a chick dude somebody demonstrates a Skeletonics exoskeletal suit. Amazingly, the entire thing is unpowered, making it far less effective at fighting Alien queens than a traditional power loader. The purpose? I have no idea. B... / Continue →

    Apple software engineer Andrew Carol (woman's first name for a last name FTW!) went and built a completely functional Antikythera Mechanism out of LEGO. What the hell's an Antikythera Mechanism? *GW casts copy/paste and goes to toast some Eggos* The Antikythera Mechanism, is... / Continue →

    The Sakakibara Kikai company of Japan is producing these $21,000 'Kid Walker' mechas because what isn't a great idea about letting a child with little to no hand-eye coordination control a giant robotic suit? Now I couldn't actually find a list of the mecha's full capabilities... / Continue →

    Ever wonder what makes Robocop tick? The time bomb I just strapped to his back! The real question is what makes Robocop stop ticking? Hopefully the same thing! Does Robocop eat stainless steel donuts? I have no idea but he does piss motor oil and crap nuts & bolts. Which,... / Continue →

    Chewbacca I trust, Boba not so much. He seems like the kind of mechanic that'd charge you for a new transmission when he didn't do anything but cut your brakes. Which, fun fact: pedestrians are a poor substitute. Aim for a tree. Not your average mechanics [zanypickle] Than... / Continue →

    The Litter Robot is a $330 mechanical litterbox that your cat will ignore and begin shitting behind the couch instead. I just ordered two (one for me, one for the dog). Basically the whole damn thing rotates and sifts the litter, depositing waste in a pan below the unit. It'... / Continue →

    You thought I was kidding about it being Robotic Apocalypse Awareness Day, didn't you? I wasn't. First the Israeli snake robot, then Gundam, and now, another mecha. Plus, the day isn't over yet. Holy shit, more to come. Truth? You can't handle the truth! Carlos Owens, 3... / Continue →

    Evan Reynolds, 19, got his hand and part of his arm ripped off in a car accident and has since been fitted with an i-LIMB, a robotic hand developed by an Apple/Star Wars fanboy. The i-Limb was developed by a Scottish company, Touch Bionics, and has won awards for its innovativ... / Continue →

    As the saying goes, you can take the boy out of Halloween, but you can't take the Halloween candy out of the boy. Without surgery. And you'd still probably miss a jawbreaker. So it may be 362 days till next Halloween, but I figure I'd put up one last tribute to the night I s... / Continue →

    I don't really have any more information on this robotic suit except the i-foot is a terrible name, it was made by Toyota, and appears to be the lovechild of a MechWarrior that stuck it to a Tyrannasaurus Rex (wish I could have been there). Oh, and two thumbs up on the choreog... / Continue →

    A 50-foot robotic spider, which has been sitting dormant on the side of an office building since last night, is going to come alive on Friday and destroy the everliving shit out of Liverpool. Weighing 37 tons and standing 50ft high, the spider is currently clinging to the si... / Continue →

    This is a video of an all wooden machine made by a 70-year old man named Del who may or may not be Santa Claus. It contains absolutely no metal whatsoever and displays virtually ever method of mechanical motion, all in a single machine. Sure it doesn't actually do anything, b... / Continue →

    I love steampunk. I don't love steampunk taxidermy. The two go together about as well as my privates and a spiked bat. Which, from experience, is a painful match up. I'm sure there are some of you out there that can really appreciate these, but you're sickos. One more of a... / Continue →
