    This is Pianocade, a chiptunes-style synthesizer and MIDI controller designed to create music with oldschool arcade game sounds. Cool, but is it cooler than THIS? *making fart sounds with armpit* "You worry me, GW." Imagine how I feel! The Pianocade is a synthesizer design... / Continue →

    I'm pretty sure I knew cymbals actually had some motion to them when struck, but nothing like this. This is like...the motion of the ocean. My stomach wouldn't even move that much if you punched me as hard as you could. Yes, yes it would. No lie: I got into a fight in eight... / 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 →

    Solid Alliance's 'Crazy Earphones' are just that: f***ing crazy. They come in styles like "mushroom", "katana through your head", "arrow through your head" and "extra ears" and will set you back around $22 a set. But what's $22 for a pair of poor quality ear-buds that'll make... / Continue →

    Neckphones are earphones for people with no ears or head. They just hang around your neck and make everyone else on the bus hear firsthand your horrible taste in music. Everybody will undoubtedly give you the stinkeye, hoping you'll take the hint and get off at the next stop,... / Continue →

    This is the Super Mario Bros. theme being played using the step motors of a laser cutter. It sounds just like you think it would (read: PEWLESS). Still, it's kinda cool. Not as cool as a cold one, but *glug glug glug* my God that's delicious. Now, what were we just talking ... / Continue →

    The 'Endless Beer' keychain is a little keychain that gives sad alcoholics everywhere the sensation of opening the same empty beer can over and over. Because honestly, what's more fun than disappointment (besides getting hit in the nuts by the space shuttle)? Available in Jun... / Continue →

    I have no more information on this thing except it looks like a functional boombox in the form factor of an AT-AT. Really makes me want to throw down a piece of cardboard and break. That's breakdance for those of you not in the know. Uh, wicka-pow! You see that move? That ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a guy opening and closing a cabinet door so the whole world can hear how it sounds like Chewbacca. Also, 'holy shit, this is amazing!' should never be used to describe a cabinet door. "Say, are you that guy that made the Chewbacca squeaking door video?" "I... / Continue →

    This is a video of a kitten literally NOM NOM NOMing its chow. Just listen, particularly around 0:10 and 0:55. Was that not cute? It was. Not as cute as the picture I drew of a panther licking a lion with the words 'Interracial Dating' in a heart, but what is? This post ... / Continue →

    This is not what I thought a product called the Haute Diggity Dog iBone would be. It's just a plush dog toy ($12) that resembles an iPhone with dog-related applications. It might not even have a squeaker! Oh wait, yes it does. Hold on, incoming email. From: The Superficial... / Continue →

    The Revenge CD from Fred is a CD packed with 20 of the most annoying sounds ever, from unhappy dog, to violin practice, to house party. The $7 CD even comes with a pair of earplugs, so you don't have to listen to the racket. Clever, but I can't help but think there are better... / Continue →

    Made by Bandi, the same company that brought us the electronic bubblewrap popper, comes the Peri Peri ($10), a noisemaker that "recreates the sound and feel of tearing open the paper 'zipper' on a FedEx/UPS/DHL envelope". Because, Jesus, that shit is so fun. Too bad I've got ... / Continue →
