    Come on -- you can kick harder than that! What is this, an 8-and-under kickball league? This is a video from the apocalypse-hurrying jerks at Carnegie Mellon's Biorobotics Lab of a hexapod spider bot with modified robot snakes for legs. You know, because you can never pack ... / Continue →

    This is Dutch designer Anouk Wipprecht's Spider Dress. It monitors the wearer's surroundings and respiration, and extends its legs if their breathing rate increases or somebody comes too close. Not a bad idea. Also, just wildly waving a steak knife around. It seems to work ... / Continue →

    This is the progression of photos (GIF of them after the jump) documenting the moment two girls in bed taking selfies realize they're not alone. It brought me great joy. I don't know why people freak out about spiders so much. Where do you think the bites you wake up in the ... / Continue →

    This is a worthwhile video of a dog in a giant spider costume scaring the shit out of people. Because if there's one thing people hate, it's giant f***ing spiders. If there's two things people hate, it's giant spiders, and smaller spiders. If there's three things people hate... / Continue →

    This is a video from a live BBC news report during which a fly lands on the camera lens, then a spider comes along, grabs it, and retreats. What the -- why the hell are there spiders living on your cameras? You ever wipe those f***ers down? Clearly somebody isn't doing their... / Continue →

    This is a small series of tattoos that appear 3-D. There's this spider, a butterfly and a ladybug, as well as a couple that make it look like the person's skin is peeling off to reveal something else underneath. I thought the treasure map one like that was pretty cool. Besi... / Continue →

    This is a little robotic spider with a 2W blue laser attached to it like a missile launcher. It can pop balloons. Plus melt human eyeballs. How much do you like your eyeballs? "I wish they were blue." Just be thankful you can see, okay? They are kind of a shit-brown thoug... / Continue →

    This is the Lygodium Spider Moth (Siamusotima aranea). The species was originally discovered in Thailand in 2005, but only recently described by entomologists. Did I mention it evolved with spider leg markings on its wings to fool predators? Because it has those, it totally ... / Continue →

    In "enough is enough, Mother Nature" news, a recently discovered species of spider in Peru creates a giant likeness of itself in its web to scare off potential predators. *dropping rolled up newspaper* It's working. The dummy spider is built out of old egg sacs, the carcasse... / Continue →

    This is a video of a $1,200 PhantomX robotic spider form Trossen Robotics dancing around some guy's living room while a couple toddlers narrate the whole thing in baby language. At one point one of them even tries to feed the robot a Hot Wheels car. That was pretty brave. Me... / Continue →

    This is a video of a red wasp and some sort of spider GOING AT IT in a battle to the death. Who wins? Definitely not anybody who watches the video, I can tell you that. The wasp -- the wasp wins. It runs circles around the spider stabbing it in the head until it is DEAD. B... / Continue →

    This is a video of a lil spider chasing a laser beam because nobody had the heart to tell it its probably the most hated form of life on earth and not a cat (I would have). No word if they splattered its guts all over the wall when they were done filming, but let's just assume... / Continue →

    Here's a couple pictures of a giant golden orb spider eating a brown tree snake in some dude's garden in Cairns, Australia. You know, because apparently that's what spiders in Australia do -- they eat f***ing snakes. *cancels Australian leg of Geekologie world tour* "A few t... / Continue →

    This is a video of Tim Davies demonstrating his giant air-powered spider puppet. Or is the spider demonstrating him? I have no idea. What I do know is Tim shouldn't be allowed to compete in any Halloween costume contests this year. Hit the jump for the short but worthwhile ... / Continue →

    This is a robotic spider developed by the Fraunhofer Institute *adds to shit list* and designed to locate gas leaks *brap!* or provide recon in radiated areas unsafe for humans. Unsafe for humans?! There's nothing too unsafe for a human if you're paying enough. One time I s... / Continue →

    That...doesn't look like it worked. Jalila Essaid is a woman. A woman with a dream. A dream of being bulletproof. Personally, I'd just stop running with a such a tough crowd and start working on an invisibility cloak, but that's just me and I'm what they call reasonable try... / Continue →

    WARNING: Spider. This is a sick-ass CG animation (called 'Loom') of a moth getting stuck in a spider's web and the resulting pandemonium. Then we take a trip inside the spider to see how silk is made. That part was kind of grody. Like how on one hand butts can be super sessy... / Continue →

    WARNING: Spider face. Ever wonder what the face of a 49-million year old spider trapped in amber might look like? You're nasty! God, why can't you just imagine a naked celebrity or something like a normal person? Your family: you have shamed them, shamed them bad. Universi... / Continue →

    WARNING: SPIDERS. Seen here looking like something straight out of a sci-fi video game boss battle, a peacock spider struts that azz for a female with the hopes of makin' sweet, eight-legged love to her booty back body segment. Allegedly this is the first time the mating ritu... / Continue →

    "Dammit, GW, spiders have eight legs." YOU SHUT UP. This is SAMSA II, a hexapod robot built by Uruguayan Geekologie Reader pabloxid. Why he decided to send me a video of the thing I have no idea, but I assume it has something to do with luring me to Uruguay to rough him up a... / Continue →
