    This is Ed, a super realistic face digitally rendered using Lightwave, Sculptris and Krita by Australian artist Chris Jones. I say super realistic, but you can easily tell it's fake because it's just a floating head -- there's no body. Nice try, but that's a dead giveaway, Ch... / Continue →

    Hey! Stop filming my chips. Researchers at MIT are able to successfully recreate conversations by analyzing the vibrations in a bag of potato chips and use an algorithm to reconstruct the sound waves that caused them. That...is some pretty serious spy shit. Are you getting... / Continue →

    This is the latest video from The Fine Bros featuring today's children reacting to yesterday's technology. In this case, a late 70's computer. They are not impressed. Now I feel old. "How old?" Old enough to call the nearest assisted living facility and ask to see their ca... / Continue →

    In news that shouldn't surprise anybody whose friends ask them to come fix their computer before trying turning it off and on again, a recent technology based email survey revealed a healthy percentage of Americans are dumb as shit when it comes to computers. Plus obese. 77% ... / Continue →

    This is a brief video of President Obama speaking during a press conference on military technology where he confirms the government is building Iron Man. Then denies it. Then says maybe. Then claims he can't say either way because it's classified. That's the problem with po... / Continue →

    Because what good is science fiction if we can't eventually make the technology real, scientists at Harvard and MIT have created a new form of matter that behaves similar to a lightsaber. Heck yeah! *turns off light swinging yardstick with a bunch of glowsticks taped to it* ... / Continue →

    Meet Blair McMillan. Blair McMillan is a man. A man with a sick mustache and mullet and the dream to become a real life Kenny Powers torture his family for the next year by only living with technology from 1986 or earlier. Shhhhhhh -- you hear that? That's the sound of a pr... / Continue →

    Stealth Wear is a line of counter-surveillance clothing designed by Adam Harvey to help avoid detection by the government or whoever the hell else might be hunting you down. The Illuminati? Probably not, you're not that important. A jilted ex-girlfriend MAYBE, but don't kid ... / Continue →

    MasterCard is about to roll out this 'Display Card' in Singapore and claims it's gonna be the next big thing in credit card technology (how exciting!). It has buttons and an LCD screen that will only allow payment with the card after the user enters their PIN number, and a uni... / Continue →

    Wait -- I didn't tell it to do that. I don't ever want to lose an arm. But if I do, I want it to be the right one (I'm left handed), and I want it to be to a crocodile. But not before I gouge one of his eyes out to wear on a necklace. The is the Bebionic3, an advanced prost... / Continue →

    Because what better way to deter trespassing than with an advanced weapons system that will kill you before you ever even see it, South Korean defense firm DoDaam just introduced the Super Aegis 2 (I think I picked up one of those in Borderlands!). The system features an autom... / Continue →

    Note: Consider this your retroactive freaky-deaky picture warning. A hacker going by the name of Barnaby Jack demonstrated his ability to hack pacemakers at a recent computer security conference in Australia, proving that fake boner pill emails may be the least of your grandpa... / Continue →

    Scientists at Harvard University have created a cyborg tissue consisting of lab-grown flesh embedded with nano-wires that has the same "sensing" properties as human skin. This is all going to end very poorly. Probably with an army of cyborgs that look human. 'Ultimately, thi... / Continue →

    Note: This is only the portion for Iron Man's suit, hit the jump for the entire graphic. Hot on the heels of last week's cost of being Batman infographic comes this one for Iron Man. The total (entirely guesstimated) cost of being Iron Man? $1,612,717,000. Of course, just l... / Continue →

    Who wears shorts over pants? This is a shot of NASA's next generation spacesuit, the Z-1. No word if it has a zipper fly for an alien quickie in the spacebar bathroom, but an astronaut can dream, can't he? "You're not an astronaut." ONLY BECAUSE OF NASA'S STUPID WEIGHT REST... / Continue →

    Not before lunch. Remember the MRI picture of a baby being born? Well now there's a video of the process. I know, we can all stop marking the days off our wall calendars, it's finally here. Note: This is NOT the video to watch if you're ten and hoping to catch your first gl... / Continue →

    Who eats paper chips?! This is the conceptual Bloom Chip potato chip container. It may look like a regular-ass Pringles can, but when the paper band is removed, oh boy, it BLOOMS into a shape that makes the chips more easily accessible. Granted it would only be practical for... / Continue →

    Note: Song contains a healthy portion of dirty words. This is a video of a VERY impressive holographic Tupac (move over Jem!) performing at the Coachella music festival over the weekend. Not gonna lie, he looks pretty real. Almost TOO real. "You're suggesting it's really hi... / Continue →

    This is a 2012 Mustang with a 1967 Mustang Fastback replica body slapped on it and outfitted with all kinds of Microsoft technology. Want to change the horn to sound like Windows booting up? You can do that (I think). The car features a heads-up display for the driver and on... / Continue →

    Granted it's a game specifically designed for you to compete against your cat (or a stray that hisses and tries to bite you if you touch it!), but it's not like the cats came up with it or anything. Created by Friskies and debuted at SXSW, 'You Vs. Cat' is a game you play agai... / Continue →
