    This is the tactical raptor that was recruited by Blue Force Gear and on display at a recent trade show. Could you imagine these things running around on the battlefield? That would be BADASS. "That would be like Dino-Riders." WHICH WAS BADASS. Dinosaurs and lasers: hands ... / Continue →

    Because what better way to deter trespassing than with an advanced weapons system that will kill you before you ever even see it, South Korean defense firm DoDaam just introduced the Super Aegis 2 (I think I picked up one of those in Borderlands!). The system features an autom... / Continue →

    Seen here a moment before impact, a cannonball prepares to send a car to meet its maker. In this case, Saturn. The cannonball actually travels all the way through the car and exits out the trunk. That's a lot of power. Don't get me wrong, I could still take a cannonball to ... / Continue →

    With the heartbreaking news that Bioshock Infinite's release has been pushed back to February, 2013, Assassin's Creed moves up a place on my "games coming out this fall that I'm excited about" list (which actually exists and I look at whenever I get depressed and feel like I ca... / Continue →

    This is a video of Battlefield 3 being played in real life from the same guys that brought us Team Fortress 2 in real life. This one focuses on the role of the medic and the power of the defibrillator. The production value is pretty high. I mean, just look at that guy. He's... / Continue →

    Take a gander at the picture -- any clue what you're looking at? Me neither, I thought it was the original Fallout beta or something. "I see an alligator eating a child." Okaaaaaaay, now I see a psychiatric evaluation. But apparently there's a tank in there somewhere. The... / Continue →

    This is the remote-controlled Digger D-3 "flail tank". It's the latest and greatest (read: explosive-proof) of Digger mine-detonators, which have been around since WWII. Basically, it's steered around on the battlefield like a giant R/C car tank while it wails on the ground ... / Continue →

    Geekologie Reader and photojournalist with balls at least 5x the international average (and 8x that of Geekologie Readers), David Adams was actually in Libya for the Battle of Sfett Hill (of trunk-tank fame), and took a bunch more footage of the fighting (and makeshift weapons ... / Continue →

    Using the Force -- of persuasion! This is a gallery of a bunch of Star Wars posters in the style of old propaganda war ones. I've seen at least this one and this one before, but the rest were new to me. Well, what do you think? Would they convince you to join a side? Perso... / Continue →

    Chess, a game best known for ending with me sweeping all the pieces off the board and threatening to stab my opponent, is played worldwide. Including while at war in Afghanistan. But what do you do if you're stationed there and don't have a set? "Make one out of dead spiders... / Continue →

    Note: Slightly larger version HERE in case you like things bigger. God, just move to Texas already! Ever wonder where video game bad guys threatening the US in first-person shooters come from? Russia. Every single one, all commies. Just kidding, a lot come from outerspace ... / Continue →

    This is a Call of Duty: Modern Warfare themed movie trailer called 'Find Makarov' that proves beyond the shadow of a doubt that fans are making movies I'd be more likely to go see than the big production companies. Just watch it. Then realize if 20th Century Fox was responsib... / Continue →

    It takes longer to heat up a burrito! Plus, what good is a burrito if it's 100 miles away? Zero. As you may recall, the Navy has been working on a railgun that they hope will eventually be able to accurately shoot projectiles up to 200 miles. And, well, they're halfway ther... / Continue →
