    This is a Disney collectible Darth Vader helmet that's been covered in python skin by the folks at ELEMNT. They only made this one though and it's the only one they're going to make so if you want it you better rush over there and have a credit card with at least $3,000 availa... / Continue →

    This is a video of Colin Furze riding his homemade 'hoverbike/human blender' (previously: this hoverbike that's supposed to be available for sale next year if the company hasn't already gone under). It looks terrifying to ride. Colin must have balls of steel or something else... / Continue →

    This is the Supersonic, Dyson's take on the hair dryer. It costs $400 *spit-takes coffee and bagel crumbs* and is going to change the way you think about hair dryers, provided you think about hair dryers. Me? I only think about those vibrators with the ball on the end moonli... / Continue →

    This is a video of Chops the puppet performing Rush's 'Tom Sawyer' with nails on a set of custom soup can drums. He does a great job too. If I were a drummer instead of using wooden drumsticks I would use turkey drumsticks. Has anybody done that yet? I feel like that should... / Continue →

    This is one of the made-to-order R2-D2 Leather Derby hats available from Etsy shop TheBlondeSwan, who, for the record, was never an ugly duckling. Kind of an awkward looking teenager though. The hats cost around $600 and there aren't any pictures of a person actually wearing ... / Continue →

    This is a video of KTRK Houston news reporter Steve Campion rescuing an older gentleman who drove his car right into a heavily flooded street. The people in the white car ahead of him? I'm pretty sure they drowned. I'm kidding, I'm sure they're fine. This guy though -- what ... / Continue →

    This is a video of Darbian setting the new Super Mario Bros. speedrun record, finishing the game in just 4:57.260 and beating the previous record by only 433 milliseconds. Will somebody make it faster? I dunno, it seems like there is very little room for improvement here. Wi... / Continue →

    This is a video demonstration of the 556-foot-long yacht transporter Super Servant 4. It can flood the rear of the ship so a bunch of smaller (but still very large) boats can be piloted inside, then pump all the water out for dry transport. I am going to buy one, then I am go... / Continue →

    This is a video imagining if the world were just 100 people. Basically they just turned percentages into numbers of people because that's easier for a lot of us bad mathers to visualize. It certainly helped me. Did you know if the world were 100 people that only 44 would hav... / Continue →

    This is a short video of SpaceX successfully landing the first stage of one of its Falcon 9 rockets on a droneship floating in the Atlantic Ocean. It's so spectacular it doesn't even look real. The idea is that landing and refurbishing the boosters will cut down on costs sign... / Continue →

    This is a video from Kuma Films highlighting the impressive skills of 三峽定點陀螺, a group of spintop throwing experts in Taiwan. It's worth a watch. I didn't even know you could have so much fun with spintops. I had a spintop when I was a kid but it wasn't very much fun. "You a... / Continue →

    Because mopping floors is for Cinderella and she's married now, this is the $200 Braava jet, the latest Roomba style robot from iRobot. It sprays cleaning juice out of the front and mops it up with different cleaning pads that probably cost a fortune. I can't imagine it does ... / Continue →
