    This is the incredibly ridiculous Russian 'Sberbank Visa Infinite' credit card. It's made of pure gold and has 26 diamonds in it. It makes me hate wasteful rich people even more than I did before, which was already a lot. The card costs $100,000 to obtain, $65,000 of which g... / 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 →

    So apparently Nissan is getting into the iPhone case business after inventing a paint for its vehicles back in 2008 that "self-heals" after being scratched (video demo after the jump). Because God forbid your iPhone CASE gets a f***ing scratch in it. That -- that might just be... / Continue →

    THe e-Urinal is a terribly named conceptual pisser by Royce Zhang that has sensors capable of measuring your body's most important health acronyms like PH/SG/URO/BLO/WBC/PRO/GLI/BIL/KET. Granted I have no clue what any of those are, or if it's even possible to measure them mea... / Continue →

    This is an art piece (and I use the term "art" as loose as the lips that sink ships) entitled '5 Million Dollars 1 Terabyte' that consists of, you guessed it! -- $5 million worth of illegally downloaded files on a 1-terrabyte hard drive. Wow, if art isn't dead now, it at least... / Continue →

    Monopoly: we've all cheated at it. Whether it's stealing a couple extra $100's from the bank, insisting you're allowed to put four hotels on a property, or accepting sexual favors for rent, we've all been there. Hopefully not on family game night. Enter the new, digital Mono... / Continue →

    The $200 Ion Twin Video Camera is a POS video camera that records both the action in front of AND behind the camera at the same time. But I can't stand your face! For every action there is a reaction. But capturing said reaction when you're videoing stuff is impossible becaus... / Continue →
