    This is a video of a robot that can solve any Rubik's Cube combination in under a second. Although, to its discredit, it has to have all the sides of the cube scanned prior -- it just makes the moves in under a second. It also has to have a custom cube with a special indentat... / Continue →

    This is a video of some guy in Japan made of nothing but Redbull and uncut cocaine playing Dance Dance Revolution, or the Japanese equivalent of Dance Dance Revolution. He's quick. If I was ever challenged to a duel I would pay this guy to take my place and kill my enemy. An... / Continue →

    This is the Torq Roadster from electric vehicle company Epic EV. The all-electric trike can hit 0-60MPH in four seconds and handle turns at 1.3-G's. For reference, that's 0.3 more G's than a solo rap album. The Tumbler-esque design is state of the art. A carbon fiber body,... / 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 →

    This is a butt-ass quality video (240p, picture above not related) of a guy beating The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time in 23-minutes thanks to a recently discovered glitch. What the -- why anybody would want to make the game go by any faster is a mystery to me. Man, I want... / Continue →

    This is a video of Russian archer Iza Privezenceva blasting arrows at a rate of around one per second and, for the most part, hitting her target...which was a rug and not a poseable foam orc like I was hoping. Impressive, Iza -- BUT CAN YOU DO THIS?! *firing arrow* "Shoot a ... / Continue →

    Japan, pissed the title was stripped from them by the much larger China, has officially regained the honor of homing the world's fastest supercomputer, capable of almost 3x the calculations per second of China's previous record-holder. Me? I'm good for about one calculation e... / Continue →

    Faced with the problem of long charge times for electric vehicles vs. the immediacy of pumping gas, lab-coated, taped-glasses scientists at MIT have developed an electric power "goo" that can be pumped into electric cars for an immediate charge. Me? Two boner pills and a beer... / Continue →

    Alexander Augusteijn takes pictures of bullets slicing through drops of water because, well, I guess he's already taken pictures of everything else. Seriously, it's bullets through water, then like a mermaid riding a unicorn, then, I dunno, he's gonna have to take up painting ... / Continue →

    Pfft, and you thought your helicopter was fast. YOUR HELICOPTER IS SLOW. My Neon goes faster than your helicopter! Just kidding, I drive an Explorer. And it's twice as fast. Plus has torpedoes and razor-blade hubcaps. The Sikorsky X2 isn't even a finished vehicle yet and ... / Continue →

    This $45 hoodie from 80's Tees makes you look like some superhero. I dunno, Lightning Man or something. Thor maybe? This DC Comics Zip-up Hoodie is inspired by the outfit worn by The Flash. The hood has a mask as well as the lightning bolt antennas as seen on The Flash. Of ... / Continue →

    First of all, I bet on baby races all the time ($40 on the bald one with a dirty diaper). And secondly, Kajus Aukščionis recently won a Lithuanian baby race and is a super fast crawler. Not as fast as me, but I have a special skill set. But what gets young Kajus crawling s... / Continue →

    Why you'd need a vending machine for a product that only requires hot water and three minutes to be ready for consumption is beyond me. Yet, here it is, a Cup Noodle (I always thought it was Cup-O-Noodles) vending machine. It's small enough to fit on a counter top, and incl... / Continue →
