    This is a video of Utah State University's 'Ascending Aggies' demonstrating the latest incarnation of their vacuum-powered wall-climbing gloves. As you'll see from watching, they work pretty damn well. Plus are near silent. Kidding, they sound like a jet taking off on an air... / Continue →

    Want to add some oldschool Star Trek flair to your bedroom? How about a $187 wall mural depicting the command bridge from the original series? Not too shabby. Of course, it won't look nearly as good in your apartment as it does in this picture. It's called home staging, fol... / Continue →

    Some people drink decaf coffee. These people, given normal coffee, will go apeshit, bouncing off the walls and breaking things. Given espresso, they will spontaneously human combust and create a black (coffee) hole that will smell like fresh roasted beans and suck many an obl... / Continue →

    We've seen light-emitting wallpaper in the past, but that was just conceptual. This fiber optic wallpaper is actually available. Like today, if you have $231 to blow on a roll. There are several color options, but it looks like you're limited to flowers as far as the design ... / Continue →

    The Air Hog Zero Gravity R/C isn't zero gravity or radio controlled. But it does stick to walls thanks to the vacuum it creates via a little fan in the roof. The 5" car gets about 10 minutes of play time on a 30 minute charge, and is controlled via infrared controller. It'll... / Continue →

    Similar to this climbing robot, but 100% absolutely nothing like it, comes this agile bastard. The as-yet-unnamed robot uses electro-adhesion to cling to the wall, generating electrostatic charges between the wall substrate and itself to keep from falling. "The principle of ... / Continue →

    This is an artistic stop motion video made entirely of wall paintings. It's pretty damn impressive. It made me kind of motion sick, but that was a small price to pay for the incredible awesomeness. A freaking ton of time, effort and ability went into this piece. Almost ... / Continue →
