    These are two videos featuring every title screen for every game made for the Nintendo and Super Nintendo, in alphabetical order. The Nintendo one is three hours long. The Super Nintendo one is 9 hours long. If you start watching them now, you will be finished in twelve hour... / Continue →

    This is a video demonstration of Aquatop, an interactive display projected onto the surface of a milky bath (made using bath salts -- actual bath salts, not the drug that makes you want to eat other people's faces) using a projector and Kinect motion controller. I am going to ... / Continue →

    This is a group of US soldiers in Afghanistan taking a break from soldiering to play a little pick-up game of Quidditch. Hey -- you better not break those brooms, my tax dollars paid for those things. Just kidding, I have no idea where my tax dollars went. Maybe I'll ask Unc... / Continue →

    This is a video from Rhett and Link (whose honest mobile home commercial is a classic that I watch bi-weekly) explaining the rules of 'Risky Settlers, Knights and Allies of the Lords of Dominion of Earth, Pandemic Edition'. It's a jocular take on the difficulty of learning the... / Continue →

    I spy a hoverboard. First Dragon Ball moves in real life, then Vader force-choking, and now some Quidditch in real life pictures (although some just look like witches). It's weird how the internet works, isn't it? It's like, cyclical. Just one big turd-recycling series of t... / Continue →

    Penguins: everybody wishes they knew one. Same goes for owls. This isn't about owls though, this is a video of penguins at the Aquarium of the Pacific playing 'iPad Game For Cats'. It's basically an app with a toy mouse that runs around while your cat tries to stomp and tort... / Continue →

    This is a video from Switzerland of a group of three quadrocopters that work together to throw and catch a ball in an elastic net dangling between them. Why do we need that? We don't. AT ALL. If robots start playing all the throw and catch, what are our children going to do... / Continue →

    Now you can get any actor's degree of separation from Kevin Bacon by going to Groogle (not changing it) and typing 'bacon number XXX' (where XXX is replaced with the name of another actor!). I chose Val Kilmer because I just watched Tombstone and I wish I had a friend like Doc... / Continue →

    This is a miniature Death Star carved out of a ping pong ball and some card-stock. It's pretty impressive for being so teensy. Speaking of -- you ever played the game where you and a friend shoot ping pong balls out of your mouths trying to hit each other in the face? It's a... / Continue →

    This is a robotic hand created by the folks at the University of Tokyo's Ishikawa Oku Lab that never loses at paper-rock-scissors. How? By reading your hand then responding with the winning gesture in less than a millisecond. Whatever, I could still beat it. Ready? One, tw... / Continue →

    Note: Larger version HERE in case you want to, I dunno, print it out and tape it inside a Playboy or something. I know what you're into! So I was half joking in the shoutout of that Mass Effect Monopoly post when I said my re-re friend Terry was waiting for a Skyrim version. ... / Continue →

    Inspired by this Fallout 3 Monopoly set, DeviantARTist TommyFilth (take a f***ing bath!) went and created this Mass Effect version. As you can see, it would be infinitely funner to play than regular Monopoly, and at least 2x as fun as the novelty version modeled after your hom... / Continue →

    This is a video of a bearded dragon playing Ant Crusher on a smart phone with his tongue. He...is good. It's kind of sad though because he always licks his lips after eating an ant except it never tastes like ant, it tastes like his owner doesn't wash his hands after going to... / Continue →

    This is set of conceptual Zelda character playing cards designed by DeviantARTist Nelde. If they were real I would buy them and play strip poker with them. But they aren't. So instead I'm going to print them out, tape them to regular cards, and start getting naked. "That's ... / Continue →

    Seen here looking like something I'd kill in a video game, a woman displays the DareDroid 2.0, an interactive dress that rewards 'Truth or Dare' participants with cocktails for "legitimate" answers and poison for "illegitimate" ones. Fine, I was lying about the poison thing. ... / Continue →

    Pfft, call me when you have enough for mahjong. That's not actually Magic, I know. But I couldn't read what the cards say so I'm running with it. Also, with one of those beer helmets on TO STAY HYDRATED. Allegedly they're not even real iPhones, but Chinese knock-offs (bu... / Continue →

    Forrest could take 'em. This is a video from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology of two autonomous quadrocopters playing ping-pong (or table tennis, but NOT table pennis, which is what you play when you want to clear out a dinner party). So yeah, they want to take over ... / Continue →

    A young Geekologie Reader sent me this video of himself unveiling Risk (the board game) at music camp and Milton Bradley one of the Parker Bros. there in the orange sweatshirt flipping his shit about it to the point a chaperon has to come make sure the boys aren't OD'ing on Mou... / Continue →

    Want to play video games with a girl but don't know any in real life? Well you're in luck, thanks to a new online service called GameCrush. For a minimum wage-y $6.60 you can play 10 minutes of XBox Live with a scantily clad strumpet via webcam. Fun! Pathetic. Girls someho... / Continue →

    This is a take on C.M. Coolidge's famous dogs playing poker paintings. Except, instead of dogs, it's a bunch of wolverines! Except, instead of wolverine animals, it's a bunch of the superhero! You know, the one with the, uh, aluminumtanium claws. Huh? OF COURSE I'M QUALIFI... / Continue →
