    This is world's smallest gold and silver chess set, crafted by jeweler Sal Knight (and available on Etsy for $1,900). It's not the world's smallest chess set overall though, because a quick Google search told me so. Still, it is the world's smallest made out of precious metal... / Continue →

    This is a video about Bargibant's Pygmy Seahorses (Hippocampus bargibanti), which grow less than an inch from snout to tail, and use a remarkable ability to change color and grow calcified tubercles to match the coral they live on. In this experiment, scientists introduce the ... / Continue →

    This is a video demo of a glitch from Madden NFL 15 that causes Browns rookie linebacker Christian Kirksey to appear 1-foot 2-inches tall (although he's on the Tennessee Titans in the video due to playing on challenge mode). Apparently he's not that good at tackling, but can s... / Continue →

    This is a photo from David Littschwager of seawater magnified 25x (showing all the crab larvae and marine worms that are invisible to the naked eye). Just like the title says. So if you thought this post was going to be about superheroes, you are a terrible at interpreting ti... / 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 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 →

    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 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 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 →

    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 →

    This is a picture of the shadow cast by a single atom, captured by scientists for the first time. How did they do it? Science. Ooooooooor drew straws and the shortest had to sell their soul to the devil. Not worth it, bro! To get this to work, an atom of Ytterbium was cool... / Continue →

    This is MIT grad student Charles Guan and his Chibikart, a 26MPH electric go-cart inspired by the ones from everyone's favorite N64 drinking game, Mario Kart. Now I'm not sure what 26MPH feels like when you're that close to the ground with nothing between your face and a wall ... / Continue →

    This the the DoubleTap .45-caliber pistol from Heizer Defense. It measures 5.5" long, 3.9" tall, and only weights 12-ounces. That's less than a postage stamp! "That is NOT less than postage stamp." No? How about one of those giant checks they give you if you win the lotter... / Continue →

    Seen here having a great time hunting dragonflies (WTF guys -- how about inviting me next time?!), two recently discovered species of horned dinosaurs related to the triceratops are set to be unveiled at The Cleveland Museum of Natural History. Plus they're just weensy little ... / Continue →

    Chandra Bahadur Dangi has officially been crowned the NEW world's shortest man (and is even smaller than the shortest woman), at a scant 54.6-cm (21.5") tall. Just kidding, they didn't give him a crown -- it was a thimble! Just kidding, he only got some lame-ass certificate. ... / Continue →

    Plus they can stop on a dime. According to a research article published by the University of Louisiana, this is the recently discovered New Guinea Paedophryne amauensis, the world's new smallest vertebrate. Which -- come on -- show a little backbone, will ya? Haha, that was ... / Continue →

    Her sari was made out of a fancy napkin, (not) true story. Man, I know you're not supposed to stare but this photo is FREAKING ME OUT. How would you like to see that burst out of a cupboard and parachute to the ground with a Doritos bag? I would NOT. Yes, yes I would. Mee... / Continue →
