    This is the custom t-rex skeleton tricycle for sale on Craiglist in Eugene, Oregon for $2,000. It measures 12-feet long, 8.5-feet tall, and the arms move as you peddle. The head is a marionette that can turn from side to side and open and close its jaws, all controlled by wir... / Continue →

    This is a first person point of view video of the new Fury 325, the word's newest and fastest gigacoaster (a roller coaster with a drop between 300 - 399 feet and complete a full circuit) at Carowinds in Charlotte, North Carolina. The ride starts with an 81-degree, 325-foot dr... / Continue →

    These are the (possibly staged) shots taken by Indonesian based wildlife photographer Hendy Mp of a tree frog riding a rhinoceros beetle. They look like they're having a great time, and I'm a little hurt I wasn't invited to bring my finger puppet rodeo clown and join in the fu... / Continue →

    This is a video of a mini roller coaster that was built in and around a house to generate some publicity for the property as well give potential buyers the opportunity to view the home (albeit very quickly). I would buy that house. I would buy it, and insist they leave the co... / Continue →

    This is a demo of an Oculus Rift virtual reality system that's been synced with a roller coaster to give the rider an entirely different experience. In this case, riding in a flying chariot being pulled by a winged horse. There's also an outerspace experience. Both look inte... / Continue →

    This is the raptor bicycle (technically a tricycle) built by Norwegian artist Markus Moestue. I would ride that. I would ride that ALL NIGHT LONG. Not in the street though, it doesn't have a bike light. Could you imagine getting rear-ended by that thing? HEAVEN. I got the... / Continue →

    Get down from there, bike -- you're not a plane! WARNING: A VERY solid "OH F*** OFF!" from the cyclist right before he gets hit. This is a video of a London cyclist who gets hit by a car, catches air, then slides down the hood of the car and lands on his feet. If I were t... / Continue →

    This is a video of Italian police officers performing a synchronized motorcycle routine in Rome in the 1950's. They do a great job. Way better than the guy who was trying to split lanes when I was waiting at a stop light the other day. It's cool bro, I didn't even like that ... / Continue →

    Remember last week's point-of-view video of the world's tallest water slide? Well it just had its first human riders, and this is the video of them shitting their pants on the way down. Looks intense. Still, a water slide you ride in a raft is no real water slide in my opini... / Continue →

    This is the $30 giant cockroach pool float. It's a raft that looks like a giant cockroach. Speaking of, I saw a giant cockroach in the hallway yesterday and tried to kill it by by stepping on it. "Tried?" TRIED -- it didn't die. This wasn't on carpet either, this was hard ... / Continue →

    This is a video of Eric Buss's Bubble Wrap Bike (aka the Pollutionmobile), a bicycle that dispenses and pops a strip of bubble wrap as you ride it. Neat idea, Eric, but I've been developing a bike that dispenses meals for the homeless as you ride it. What can I say, I'm a dre... / Continue →

    Remember Sakakibara's walking mecha suit for kids? Of course you don't, I posted it back in 2010, it's 2013 now, and you're not an elephant. I only BARELY remember it and I had to write the damn article. Anyways, now Sakakibara has a new mecha suit for kids featuring one gra... / Continue →

    This is an entirely too artistic video (just show the stair parts, dammit!) demonstrating Po-Chih Lai's Stair Rover, an 8-wheeled skateboard with pivoting trucks that allow it to be ridden down stairs. Me? I like to ride down stairs the old fashioned way: on a pillow like I d... / Continue →

    There are a lot of things I still want to ride before I die. More dinosaurs, Falkor the Luck Dragon, and on the back of a train caboose included. Not so much a frightening 25¢ mechanical Pikachu outside a grocery store. Still, your kids seem pretty easy to entertain, I'm su... / Continue →
