    Note: Article was originally posted January 3, 2008, but because the internet is cyclical the story is going around again so I edited it and moved it to the front page. Seen here looking suspiciously like Jake from Adventure Time in tank form, Yuki-taro is a Japanese robot t... / Continue →

    These are the Meteorite shoes created by Studio Swine for Microsoft (presumably for an ad, but possibly because Bill Gates has a meteor fetish). They 3-D scanned real meteorites from the Museum of Natural History, then used a milling machine to carve the shoes' outers from alu... / Continue →

    This is a video edit from Eclectic Method of all R2-D2's beeps and boops given subtitles from the six existing Star Wars movies. Honestly, I excepted a little more, but it did not deliver. Kind of like a Geekologie article -- you win some and you lose some. Unless you're me,... / Continue →

    This is a video from the Super-Fan Builds webseries (previously: a Hobbit-hole litter box and Bioshock aquarium) documenting the construction of a custom Batmobile stroller for young Collin and his father Josh. It turns out pretty amazing. Sure it'll take up the whole sidewal... / Continue →

    This is a short video of some folks going off the Ski and Snowboard Bungee Ramp at the Tignes Ski Resort in France's Northern Alps. From what I could tell, the bungee cords actually slide on two cables parallel to the jump, so you continue bouncing further and further down the... / Continue →

    This is the PlayBOX 4One, a Playstation 4 and XBox One stuffed into a custom laptop case by modder Eddie Zarick. It comes complete with a 22-inch 1080p screen. I'm going to make one myself, then take it to Starbucks and play video games and drink coffee and yell at the screen... / Continue →

    In there's no way my mom will ever let me play that news, this is the official gameplay trailer for the April 14th release of Mortal Kombat X. SO MUCH BLOOD. Heads getting split open, arms being ripped off -- you name it. My God, I can't wait for a friend to get this and inv... / Continue →

    This is a video of a guy using a beat machine to play Street Fighter II by mapping the drum pads to a Street Fighter controller. He actually plays Guile's Theme while kicking Guile's ass. So if you ever wondered if you could beat Guile by just randomly mashing buttons, the an... / Continue →

    Note: I still feel near death and am all hopped up on pills. Either better or dead soon. This is the CocoJet 3D Printer, a collaboration between Hershey and 3D Systems. It can print letters and shapes just like a regular 3-D printer, but with chocolate. Because chocolate ma... / Continue →

    This is the $128 (plus $62 shipping) Super Gorone Desk designed by Thanko. It can be used to hold your laptop upside-down in bed, as a regular laptop stand, or a TV dinner tray. I suppose it could also be used as a makeshift kissing booth. I remember in college several guys ... / Continue →

    Note: Still sick as hell, bear with me. Because bookworms are a hardcore bunch, somebody hacked a road sign in downtown Los Angeles late last week with the message, 'READ A F***ING BOOK'. And while reading is fundamental, reading while driving is considered dangerous and shou... / Continue →

    This is a video of two Japanese artists who have had their faces projection mapped and tracked so they can have different animal and robot faces projected on them while they move around (previously seen before with a lady HERE). Pretty neat. I especially like the speakers-for... / Continue →

    This is a first-person POV video of a survivor trying to escape a group of the undead by parkouring his face off over the rooftops of Cambridge, UK. Is it enough to get away and live to see another day? SPOILER: No it is not. So the next time you're preparing for the zombie ... / Continue →

    This is the Critical Hit D20 Doormat available from ThinkGeek for $20. That would be $1 per side if it was actually a 20-sided icosahedron. It's not though, it's a flat doormat, so it actually costs $10 per side. Only one side is printed though, making it $20 per PRINTED sid... / Continue →

    To get people excited about outerspace, this is a small series of travel posters designed by NASA, advertising nearby (nearby being relative) earth-like planets that have the potential for liquid water on their surfaces. Obviously, I would vacation on any one of these, even wi... / Continue →

    This is a video of a Brazilian girl catching piranhas by dangling a piece of raw meat in the water, waiting for the piranhas to bite it, then tossing them in a bucket. A fairly solid technique. That plank she's standing on? Not very solid. What's the opposite of something t... / Continue →

    This is DeviantARTist Nyima-chan cosplaying as a Stargate. Pretty clever. The yellow chevrons around the gate even light up. That's a nice touch. Maybe for next Halloween I'll be a worm hole. Specifically: Earthworm Jim's anus. Everyone will ask what I'm supposed to be, a... / Continue →
