    This is Hyper-Reality, a video created by Keiichi Matsuda that "presents a provocative and kaleidoscopic new vision of the future, where physical and virtual realities have merged, and the city is saturated in media." Basically it's a vision of a future where there is tons of ... / Continue →

    This is the pizza box designed by the folks behind the one-button Push For Pizza app and Nikolas Gregory studio that can be folded into a pipe using a specially perforated section of the box. The little plastic table that prevents the top of the box from touching the pizza is ... / Continue →

    Seen here looking like they're auditioning for parts on The Big Bang Theory, Ginnard and Adam from Youtube channel Slow News Day test out a Tesla Model S P90D's autopilot feature during rush hour traffic. The car handles unsurprisingly well, presumably because it isn't distrac... / Continue →

    This is the electric fork developed by researchers at Rekimoto Lab at the University of Tokyo in Japan. The fork was designed to electrically stimulate your tongue into thinking you're tasting salt, so you don't actually have to add all that blood pressure-raising sodium to ex... / Continue →

    This is a video of Face2Face, a program developed to add the real-time facial expressions of an actor to the face of someone else. The actor input video is captured via a standard webcam, and the results are surprisingly accurate. Obviously, this will be the basis of all futu... / Continue →

    This is a promotional video from Aerotain, a Swiss firm creating drone-powered helium blimps to serve as flying billboards. That is kind of depressing. Not surprising, just depressing. In related news, bb gun sales are through the roof. I never had a bb gun growing up but I... / Continue →

    Note: Larger version HERE so you can really taste the rainbow. This is the Lisa Frank inspired tarot card deck created by artist Ariel Hart. Have you ever had a tarot card reading? I have not. I went to a psychic palm reader once though and she said based on my life line ... / Continue →

    This is a video demonstration of a laser-based rust removal gun. Lasers: is there anything they can't do? I'm not really sure what's going on, but it looks like it works. It also looks worlds easier than using a grinder. Still, the question remains how good it is at hair re... / Continue →

    This is the Skywall 100 developed by British based OpenWorks. It uses compressed gas to fire a rocket and net to ensnare drones, then bring them safely back down to earth via parachute. Obviously, this is great news for anybody looking to open a second-hand drone store, which... / Continue →

    The Battelle DroneDefender is a rifle designed to take over radio control of drones so you can bring them to the ground and stomp them. I just blasted myself in the nuts with one and now the doctor says I can't have kids for another 600 years which is actually fine with me bec... / Continue →

    After teasing us for over a month (my nipples have been hard for weeks), Lexus has finally released a video of their liquid nitrogen-cooled magnetic superconductor hoverboard being ridden. It is more impressive that I imagined, and pro skateboarder (but only novice hoverboarde... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Yuppiechef demonstrating an induction stovetop, using a pan cut in half. For those of you who aren't familiar with induction cooking, it uses electromagnets to heat things with sorcery. It only works with iron-magnetic materials though, so you can put y... / Continue →

    This is a BBC nature documentary about bats and crocodiles that has been edited to give both species laser shooting capabilities. It made me think long and hard about whether I'd prefer to ride a giant laser-shooting bat or giant laser-shooting crocodile into battle. You know... / Continue →

    This is a teaser video for Lexus's liquid-nitrogen cooled semiconductor and magnet powered hoverboard. Lexus insists it really does hover with a rider and promises more test footage soon. It only works on certain metallic surfaces though (the surface in the video was just mad... / Continue →

    This is a video of Captain Jean-Luc Picard spitting a bunch of knowledge in a Star Trek edit by Eclectic Method. That captain Picard -- he was a smart dude. Maybe not as handsome as Riker, but the beard and mustache combo Riker rocked in later seasons is the kind of thing dre... / Continue →

    After securing the rights from Disney/Pixar, LEGO has just released the first images of its upcoming WALL-E set. The set started as a LEGO Ideas submission by Angus MacLane that got the necessary votes to be considered by LEGO for production (comparison shot between the origin... / Continue →

    ERROR, ERROR. *app crashes, phone catches fire* Google's research lab is hard at work developing an artificial intelligence capable of calculating the calories in food photos in an effort to simplify the process of calorie tracking. Or to constantly remind me I rarely eat a ... / Continue →

    Meet Les Baugh. Les had both arms amputated at the shoulder after a freak electrical accident 40 years ago (and not from being torn off by an angry bear like I initially suspected). Now he's the first person to successfully use the bilateral shoulder-down modular prosthetic l... / Continue →
