    Meh, Rygar could do that. Note: Just hit the jump and watch the video, you won't not be impressed. Ever wonder what kind of dedication it takes to win a world yo-yo championship? This kind. The kind where, if a trick goes wrong, you could f***ing choke yourself out. This i... / Continue →

    OMG SOMEBODY GET THAT ROBOT A BEER BEFORE HE KILLS US ALL. I had to look up what a toque was because I thought it was when you smoke the marijuanas but that made zero sense in this context. Nope, turns out it's a brimless hat most commonly known for being the tall white ones ... / Continue →

    Seen here doing things with a yo-yo I never thought possible (haha, no, not making it look cool), Jensen Kimmitt won the 2010 World YoYo contest with this mindblowing 3:26 routine. The only problem is he didn't even walk the dog. Seriously, 3-and-a-half minutes of yoyo actio... / Continue →

    This is a Millennium Falcon guitar that was spotted by intrepid Geekologie Reader Isaac. Except it's not really a functional guitar, it's just a guitar neck glued to a Millennium Falcon toy. Still, I suppose it COULD be a real Millennium Falcon guitar if you glued a pickup to... / Continue →

    Nathan Sawaya, a man best known for building the hell out of things with LEGO blocks, has created a fully functional cello out of the modular plastic bits. No word on what it sounds like, but if I had to guess, I'd say not good. But who am I to judge? I mean, BESIDES BEING T... / Continue →

    Because there's nothing more dramatic than choreographing your yo-yo routine to a Ne-Yo song. Youtube Thanks to Leejay, who can perform all those tricks (with a yo-yo ball).... / Continue →

    Deborah Sperber made this rendering of everyone's favorite elf (sacrilege!), Spock, using 1,102 spools of colored thread. But to view Spock's visage properly, one must gaze into a crystal viewing ball while rubbing it and repeating "I love The Geekologie Writer" three times. ... / Continue →

    This spider-inspired robot apparently shoots webs to catch criminals in the act of cowering like little girls. Per translated German: Which like an ugly remote controlled car is in really an awake robot, which is to catch burglars, looks harmless. The Japanese robot manufactu... / Continue →

    Air Guitar Strings cost $3 plus shipping and are an empty package that reads "Air Guitar Strings". Very clever. if you're thinking about buying them, here's an idea: why don't you give me half the money you were gonna pay, then we'll go out back, I'll kick you in the nuts, an... / Continue →

    It doesn't even have to be 'A Link To The Past' themed. It could be any Zelda, I don't care. I love them all. It took stitcher Servotron four long months to complete this map of the overworld from the SNES classic. As you can see, it's awesome and belongs in a museum. Or s... / Continue →

    No -- it's hemp, not chronic. But that didn't stop modder Dhreck, who may or may not smoke the f*** out of the sticky-icky (hint: he does), from wrapping a Wii-mote in the stuff. The Hemp-Mote is absolutely playable, all buttons, accelerometers and the infrared camera accoun... / Continue →

    Cassie from Georgia is knitting a Super Mario Bros. World 1-1 scarf. Why? Because she's awesome, that's why. So far it's about 1/3 done and already over 10 feet long. So it's gonna be one hell of a long scarf. Keep you real warm. Now I'm not sure who that guy is in the pi... / Continue →

    Look around. See any flames? Take a whiff. Does it smell like smoke? Take your iPod's earbuds out. Is there a fire-alarm blaring? If so, strap on the Wizard safety pack, attach the end of the lifeline to something sturdy (no, not your computer monitor) and then dive out a... / Continue →

    Okay so I've been sitting here playing Bomberman on FireNES and pretending those sick, sick women were the enemies in the game. It wasn't working so I went outside and cut down one of my asshole neighbor's trees. Now I'm feeling a little better, but not much. I figured I'd t... / Continue →

    The Venetian Blind t-shirt is a shirt that bares your beautifully tanned abs if you're a sexy woman or your pasty, hairy beergut if you're me. All with a simple pull of the string. Now I'm not sure if it goes all the way to the top or not, but it sucks pretty bad if it doesn'... / Continue →

    Sometimes there's a candle that comes along and changes the way I look at wax-fueled flames forever. And this is one -- The Hotwicks Stripper Candle. The $9 candle smells like strippers. It's a candle and an alibi all in one! You don't smell like a stripper, you just smell lik... / Continue →

    This is an older video of a tether car doing 200+ MPH on a circular track. At first I thought the guy in the video was participating in a bat-spin race, but then I realized he was whipping the car around to get it started. Watch the video till the end to see the thing really ... / Continue →
