    This is a video taken from the 91st floor of the Shanghai World Financial Center where high winds sent two window washers on the terrifying ride of their lives in their little cleaning bucket. I would have died. I would have shit myself and died. Probably a couple times. Th... / Continue →

    This is a video of Empire Robotic's Versaball robot demonstrating its beer pong skills. Obviously, it's the exact opposite kind of robot you want showing up at your next keg party. Or one with chainsaws or machine guns for arms. If you're not familiar with Empire Robotic's V... / Continue →

    Because what good are killer robots if they can't still kill after being injured, scientists at the Sorbonne in Paris and the University of Wyoming have developed an algorithm that allows a robot to learn to adapt to broken/nonfunctional limbs so it can still murder its next ta... / Continue →

    I meant to post this last week but I forgot because I had bigger things on my plate. Namely, a whole fried fish. I PICKED OUT ITS EYEBALLS AND ATE THEM. This is a video of a guy dressed as a Dementor from Harry Potter who comes up to his friend who has engaged a stranger in c... / Continue →

    This is a fake video from HUVrTech featuring Christopher Lloyd (Doc Brown), Tony Hawk and a handful of other celebrities (including Terrell Owens and Moby) lying about riding a real hoverboard. The CG is decent, but the whole thing is impossible to believe. Plus they made the... / Continue →

    This is a viral ad from Thinkmodo (of angry telekinetic girl in a coffee shop fame) for the upcoming movie I've never heard of 'Devil's Due'. The prank features a robotic devil baby in a remote controlled stroller. Basically, whenever anybody nears the stroller the baby pops... / Continue →

    This is a little robotic spider with a 2W blue laser attached to it like a missile launcher. It can pop balloons. Plus melt human eyeballs. How much do you like your eyeballs? "I wish they were blue." Just be thankful you can see, okay? They are kind of a shit-brown thoug... / Continue →

    Because Mother Nature is completely out of her f***ing mind, decapitated rattlesnakes can still strike and cripple/kill their enemies up to an hour after being decapitated. They can't fly though, so now would be a good time to start saving for that jetpack. Rattlesnake venom ... / Continue →

    How do you make a BigDog quadruped robot even more terrifying? Simple, add a cinderblock-throwing head attachment. It can actually chuck them pretty far too -- probably about as far as I could. So if it ever comes down to a cinderblock throwing duel to the death, it could be ... / Continue →

    This is the Robotic Spider Dress, a collaboration piece between designer Anouk Wipprecht (of self-coloring dress fame) and programmer Daniel Schatzmayr. It moves its legs around whenever it senses nearby movement. That's creepy. I can't say I'd recommend any of you ladies we... / Continue →

    Japanese robotics lover Dr. Guero (of robot-riding-a-bicycle infamy) is back at it, this time with a two-legged balancing robot that can walk a tightrope. It's creepy how human-like it balances itself by waving its little stick thingies around. "Those are its arms." YES -- i... / Continue →

    Researchers at Harvard University have developed a squishy octopus-like robot that can have different colored dyes pumped through its skin to change colors, then remain motionless until you walk by and HELLO, FACEHUGGER. The machine was made from silicon-based polymers, and ... / Continue →

    Researchers at the University of Virgina (dammit, Wahoos!) have built a robot that mimics the swimming movement of a manta ray. Why? No GOOD reason, I can tell you that right now. Also, who killed Kennedy. Two words: the Russians. "Nope." Space aliens? "Now you're just g... / Continue →
