    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 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 →

    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 →

    He looks like something straight out of a Dr. Seuss story, doesn't he? Well he's not, he's a previously undescribed species of planthopper photographed in real life. I just want to rub his fuzzy ass on my cheeks, don't you? Like nature's little makeup brush. Many planthoppe... / Continue →

    Raise your hand if you've ever wanted a house with secret passageways. Everybody, cool. I've always wanted a secret passage from the kitchen to the bathroom so my family will stop judging me for eating in there. You ever eaten a PB&J in a bubble bath before? Makes you feel ... / Continue →

    Keep in mind 'cute' is subjective. Now that I think about it I guess 'chubby' is too but nine out of ten doctors have agreed I'm full-blown obese. This is one of two new species of recently described mini-spiders from China. How small is a mini-spider? Well the little guy a... / Continue →

    Remember yesterday's stop motion video that IBM made using individual atoms as pixels? Well it turns out they also made some Star Trek art while they were at it. Why? Not sure, presumably because there's a new movie coming out. That or they just really love Star Trek. Or m... / 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 →

    This is the Willcon Phone Strap 2, a confusingly named cell phone that's allegedly the world's smallest. The $380 (WTF?) Tic-Tac box features a 1-inch color screen, flip-up antennae, 2-hours of talk time, and doesn't even have a camera. I'm sorry, but I just don't see the pur... / Continue →

    This is a little Winterfell castle that was 3-D printed using a MakerBot and a digital model file created using screencaps from the show's opening. If you have your own MakerBot 3-D printer you can head to the project page and download the file yourself and start printing thes... / Continue →

    Seen here looking suspiciously like a hair under a microscope, scientists have managed to capture an image of DNA's double helix structure for the first time, officially ending the era of me being able to claim DNA is actually shaped like little rainbows. Truly a sad day. The... / Continue →

    In 'Holy shit clone it now' news, a new dwarf species of heterodontosaur has been discovered that would look great on a leash pooping in my least favorite neighbor's yard. "Hey -- you gonna pick that up?!" Nope, but I will come back and ride a t-rex through your house. I kno... / Continue →

    The world's smallest man and woman recently met for a Guinness Book of World Records photo shoot, and my goodness would they make a cute couple. You smell that? Love is in the air. No -- you can't smell it? Well you have to get real low, like knee-height. Pretend your hous... / Continue →

    This is a video of a guy riding off on an ultra-tiny bicycle. It's small. Like, even smaller than the bicycle a Cabbage Patch Doll would ride. No word where the mini-bike came from, but I suspect brobro was the victim of a deceptive advertising scam. Hey, we've all been the... / Continue →
