    This is a real-life Transformer (OmniZero.9, the brainchild of Takeshi Maeda) that can morph from a humanoid robot to a humanoid robot that can carry a person, to a wheeled cart. Just watch how scary it is when it moves. If I didn't know better, I'd swear there was a little p... / Continue →

    What do you buy for the man who has nothing? While you ponder that nugget of vast intellectuality, I'll tell you about this 2GB Transformer memory stick (which is way better than these ones). Probably the awesomest USB drive I've seen in forever, the unit transforms from a no... / Continue →

    We've already seen a Master Chief Transformer here on Geekologie, but quite frankly -- can I call you Frank? No? Well surely -- ooooh, I like that, can I call you Shirley? And, I dunno, maybe you could do your hair up in pigtails and wear one of those 50's poodle skirts? YO... / Continue →

    That's right folks, the authorities in Nigeria have arrested a magic goat (which may or may not be a tree goat) suspected of theft and are waiting for the crafty bastard to return to its human form. Vigilantes took the black and white beast to the police saying it was an armed... / Continue →

    The Platzhalter bookself expands in the middle as your literary collection does so you've got room to store all those delicious pages. Of course, you could just buy a bigger bookshelf. Or another one. Still, a clever idea, I'll give them that. And also, extra points for it ... / Continue →

    Almost Transformers is a skit by Australian comedians Merrick and Rosso in which they don refrigerator and clothes dryer costumes and try to scare people walking by. I thought it was okay. Out of four stars I give it Pluto. Youtube Thanks to Roberto, who needs no transfor... / Continue →

    Well, we've seen a reassembling robot before, but that one was a chair, and, honestly, it's hard to get too frightened about a chair unless it's being swung at you by an unruly biker at the bar because you hit on his sister. Well these little reassembling robots are both scary... / Continue →
