    This is a 3-day old miniature horse chasing after one of its caretakers. I did not know horses could be so miniature. That is like a teacup horsey. I assume it is going to be much larger when it's full grown. That's the thing about animals -- they grow up. And sometimes, w... / Continue →

    This is the $27 SURVCO Tactical Credit Card. It fits in your wallet and combines over 20 different multi-tool features including axe, seatbelt cutter, bottle opener, saw, wrenches, nail puller, spear and more. To work as an axe though it has to be mounted to a stick. That st... / Continue →

    This is a video of a bunch of amateur spelunkers squeezing themselves into a tiny hole in a rock to reach Deep Cave in Edwards County, Texas. Apparently there are other, much larger entrances, but using this one is how you earn the street cred (technically cave cred). It look... / Continue →

    Because everybody needs a hobby, this is a video of Youtuber AAAjoken preparing a scrambled quail egg, miniature sausage and milk tea using a functional little kitchen set from Japanese toymaker Konapun. It was all very relaxing to watch. Did he eat the breakfast when he was ... / Continue →

    This is world's smallest gold and silver chess set, crafted by jeweler Sal Knight (and available on Etsy for $1,900). It's not the world's smallest chess set overall though, because a quick Google search told me so. Still, it is the world's smallest made out of precious metal... / Continue →

    This is a video about Bargibant's Pygmy Seahorses (Hippocampus bargibanti), which grow less than an inch from snout to tail, and use a remarkable ability to change color and grow calcified tubercles to match the coral they live on. In this experiment, scientists introduce the ... / Continue →

    While most people would spend their time trying to move OUT of a dumpster, environmental science professor Jeff Wilson has committed to living inside one of the trash shacks for an entire year. During that time, Jeff, who also calls himself Professor Dumpster and not Captain T... / Continue →

    Note: Larger version HERE in case you ever wondered if a hummingbird's stare can steal your soul (it can). This is the macro shot of a Green-Crowned Brilliant Hummingbird's face taken by photographer Chris Morgan while on vacation at the Bosque De Paz biological reserve in Cos... / Continue →

    This is a photo from David Littschwager of seawater magnified 25x (showing all the crab larvae and marine worms that are invisible to the naked eye). Just like the title says. So if you thought this post was going to be about superheroes, you are a terrible at interpreting ti... / Continue →

    This is Tiny Hamsters Eating Tiny Burritos - Episode 1, from the same folks that brought us Bubble p0rn (clearly they're versatile). It's a video of a hamster eating little hamster-size burritos that his owner made for him. It's worth a watch. Plus, the fact that they called... / Continue →

    This is a video from German watchmaker Nomos Glashütte of one of their modern watches being assembled. It was a treat to watch(!), mostly because I've always been fascinated with watchmaking (and collect vintage Doxas). Everything is so small. Did you know the jewels in a wa... / Continue →

    This is a Caribbean Pygmy Octopus that recently hatched at the Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium in Florida. It's so teensy! If this were a Disney movie, it would think that pencil eraser is its mother. This is not a Disney movie though, this is real life. There are no ha... / Continue →

    This is a collection of cross stitch embroidered microbes and viruses designed and needled by Alicia Watkins (links to her Etsy store where they're all available). Great, now I'm convinced I have something. Probably the measles. Psyche -- I was vaccinated as a kid! See, I c... / Continue →

    This is a video of sushi chef Hironori Ikeno preparing his special -- tiny slices of fish atop single grains of rice. There is no way I could get one of those in my mouth without losing it first. And if it did make it to my face, I'd probably accidentally vacuum it up my nose... / Continue →

    Meet Nanuqsaurus, a miniature cousin of the t-rex that roamed northern Alaska some 70-million years ago. Roaming northern Alaska now? SASQUATCH. While this has been called a dwarf or pygmy in some quarters, it is hardly small with an estimated size of around 5 m in total le... / Continue →

    This is the Estes Proto X Nano R/C Quadcopter (available on Amazon for $40 plus other places). It's 2.5-inches from rotor tip to rotor tip, weighs 0.4-ounces and gets 5 to 10 minutes of flight time on a single charge. Unfortunately, its rotors aren't powerful enough to suppor... / Continue →

    This is the third snow-related post in a row. That must be some sort of Geekologie record. One that will definitely won't be going down in the history books and probably won't be remembered by a single person after tomorrow. God willing, I'll drink it out of my memory before... / Continue →

    This is a short stop motion video from IBM that they created using SINGLE ATOMS as individual pixels. Do you know how small an atom is? No? Well imagine a bouncy ball. Now imagine a SUPER F***ING TEENY bouncy ball. That's how small an atom is provided you imagined a bouncy... / Continue →

    This is an Alien chestburster carved out of pencil lead by Hungarian DeviantARTist cerkahegyzo. It's not one of those giant pencils you used in kindergarten either, it's a regular one. Which reminds me -- in high school I carved mine and a girlfriend's initials into a tree tr... / Continue →

    This is the half-inch papercraft Millennium Falcon model made by working under a magnifying glass professional David Canavese. David says she ship is entirely paper (and glue) and took eight hours to complete. There's a bonus Star Wars Blockade Runner after the jump that's ev... / Continue →
