    This is the 13-inch Kniper, a $75 throwing knife multi-tool designed by Urchin Sky. You can throw it at things, or use one of the other twenty-two tools, including a tobacco pipe. I'm going to throw it at my toes to teach them a lesson about always stubbing themselves on the ... / Continue →

    That is not how you catch a frisbee, that is how you catch a baby. This is the $25 Star Trek U.S.S. Enterprise Flying Disc (not actually a Frisbee, Frisbee is a name brand) available from ThinkGeek. It's a flying disk with a freely rotating saucer section, and a foam body tha... / Continue →

    This is a video from a Lithuanian talent show of some guy who claims his skill is knife throwing, although I suspect his real talent is killing assistants. When attempting to knife giant playing cards out of his assistant's hands, he manages to hit him with the knives both tim... / Continue →

    This is a video of Empire Robotic's Versaball robot demonstrating its beer pong skills. Obviously, it's the exact opposite kind of robot you want showing up at your next keg party. Or one with chainsaws or machine guns for arms. If you're not familiar with Empire Robotic's V... / Continue →

    This is a short (and shaky) video of George R.R. Martin throwing out the first pitch at an Albuquerque Isotopes minor league baseball game. You don't actually get to see where the pitch lands, but I get the feeling George made the right decision pursuing writing instead of bas... / Continue →

    So apparently yesterday was RoboCop day in Detroit and they were supposed to unveil that RoboCop statue they had commissioned but apparently it's not ready for display yet so that got cancelled. Detroit: because why should anything go right? Anyways, to promote the DVD and ... / Continue →

    This is a brief video of a giant raptor throwing the first pitch at a recent San Diego Padres game (previously: this one who sucked at throwing). Judging from the video, there were literally over a hundred people in attendance. That might be a Padres record. Hoho -- burn. ... / Continue →

    Note: Dude drops the f-bomb but he has an accent so it totally shouldn't cause any problems. This is a video of a (presumably) Domino's pizza delivery guy Frisbee-ing a pizza up three stories because the guy who ordered it is too high/lazy to come down and get it. Is the vi... / Continue →

    That...does not look like Gotham. This is a video of boomerang lover Victor Poulin testing out his newly made 25-inch Batarang. It returns and he catches it on his first try -- incredible! Did you know boomerangs were originally used for hunting? You would just cream some a... / Continue →

    'Send Me To Heaven' is a real Android app (Apple denied it) that measures how high you throw your phone in the air. It's like a game. A game where the equipment costs $400 and breaks every time you don't win. Basically, the best kind of game. S.M.T.H. (Send Me To Heaven) is... / Continue →

    Seen here reaching for an invisible titty, a guy plays the homemade virtual reality version of Paperboy he developed ('PaperDude VR') for use with an Oculus Rift headset and Kinect motion controller. It looks like fun. Fun to the point where I would actually use the game to e... / Continue →

    This is a video from China of some employee of the month haphazardly tossing boxes at an airplane loading conveyer belt and missing half of them. I don't really understand why he does such a piss poor job, because eventually he has to get down and pick up all the boxes he miss... / Continue →

    Jerks at Carnegie Mellon University have developed a robotic snake that can wrap itself around objects when thrown at them. Cool, here -- grab a hold of this volcano. The idea is to create a robot capable of slithering into tight spaces, perhaps for scouting or search-and-r... / Continue →

    How do you make a BigDog quadruped robot even more terrifying? Simple, add a cinderblock-throwing head attachment. It can actually chuck them pretty far too -- probably about as far as I could. So if it ever comes down to a cinderblock throwing duel to the death, it could be ... / Continue →

    This is a video from Switzerland of a group of three quadrocopters that work together to throw and catch a ball in an elastic net dangling between them. Why do we need that? We don't. AT ALL. If robots start playing all the throw and catch, what are our children going to do... / Continue →

    This is a video of a robotic trashcan on wheels that moves to catch everything you throw at it. That way you score a basket every time and don't feel like such a CLUMSY LOSER. Sure it would be way cheaper to roll your office chair over there and pick it up, but who wants to b... / Continue →

    I know the screencap is kind of blurry, but those are guns in the air. Also, THE LEAST COOL PLACE I CAN THINK OF TO PERFORM YOUR METAL GEAR SOLID GUNSPINNING ROUTINE. "Hey mom -- don't come in the living room for the next five minutes." God, go outside and stand in front of ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a couple trio of bros throwing paper airplanes off the roof of a college building. One guy's plane, the 'Odin Raven', manages to make its way into a trashcan in the parking lot below. Sure he didn't mean for that to happen, but it's still kind of impressive... / Continue →

    This is a series of zombie/severed head bowling balls created as part of a marketing campaign for 13th Street, a German sci-fi/horror cable channel. As you can see, they were painted to look like decapitated heads, and you put your fingers in the eyes/nose/butthole/mouth. Pre... / Continue →

    YES I GAVE HIM AN @$$HOLE! Seen here failing to even get the ball to Cookie Monster's retarded older brother (WHO'S WELL IN FRONT OF THE PLATE), a robot throws the first pitch at last night's Phillies game against the Brewers. But wait, there's an excuse for the fail (isn't t... / Continue →
