    This is a short video of what a group of Japanese robot-loving scientists are calling the first android newscasters. Me? I'm calling them public enemies numbers 1 and 2. *pins their pictures to the wall with big red circles around their faces* Can somebody bring me some yar... / Continue →

    This is the dancing witch robot that artist Jordan Wolfson and Spectral Motion created. Apparently it responds (read: dances) to music and follows you around with its eyes. Obviously, everybody involved with the project should be jailed and that jail should be shot into the s... / Continue →

    A French company has developed a toothbrush that connects to your smartphone ($100 - $200) so you can pretend like you're going to take better care of your teeth even though your commitment, at best, will last less than a week. This is not the toothbrush here, this is one I fo... / Continue →

    As a sign that God is clearly ready to abandon us to focus his efforts on another inhabited planet (I'm assuming he was smart enough to not put all his eggs in one basket), the Oxford Online Dictionary has announced its latest 65 additions to this embarrassment we call the Engl... / Continue →

    This is the £2,499 (~$3,800) coat made entirely out of men's chest hair. It contains around a million individual hairs and took over 200-hours to weave. Now pat yourself on the back for not being the person who spent 200 hours of their life weaving men's chest hairs. The coa... / Continue →

    These are two animal skulls with little clay Super Mario levels recreated on top by artist Tobias Wüstefeld for the We Love 8-Bit art show in Vienna, Austria. Why animal skulls? NO F***ING CLUE. It's art though, so it doesn't have to make sense. Personally, I think the scen... / Continue →

    Because 'Why not?' seems to be just as good a reason as any these days, here's the giant yellow banana shaped pool table created by artist Cléon Daniel. I think we can all agree this piece does NOT carry any sort of social or political commentary. Or does it? Underpaid banan... / Continue →

    It's a real girl, it's a real girl, it's a real girl, it's a real girl. Because sad and lonely is a very real thing, a group of Japanese students at University of Tsukuba have designed a 'Girlfriend Coat' (not a new concept btw) that gives the wearer the sensation of being hug... / Continue →

    Note: You can download a 65KB text file of the entire 189,819 letter word HERE. This is a video of some guy pronouncing the longest word in the world, which is the chemical name for titan (aka connectin), a human protein, and the largest known protein. It takes brobro 3-hou... / Continue →

    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 →

    Because this is the sad, sad world we live in, Computer Choppers (think West Coast Choppers, then forget West Coast Choppers and think of a company that just coats electronics in expensive metals) is selling 24k gold-plated MacBooks. They're perfect for the person who wants th... / Continue →

    Because your dog is bad enough to have to wear a muzzle, it's probably bad enough to be humiliated at the same time. Enter the ~$25 Quack Muzzle from OPPO in Japan, it makes your dog's snout look like a duck's bill. Probably not convincing enough for your dog to get close eno... / Continue →

    This is a one-square meter "house". Now, I hate to sound like an @$$hole (just kidding, I don't mind), but that isn't even a house. Well, not any more of one than a cardboard box with a window cut out anyways. Throw in a sleeping bag and I'd argue a cardboard box is even MOR... / Continue →

    EDIT: Pint glasses, not shot glasses. Because there's absolutely nothing on the internet today but the heartbreaking story of a disturbed twenty-something who open fired on a theater full of Batman fans (my thoughts and prayers are with you, friends/family/Aurora community), h... / Continue →

    This is the 'Streetwise' Cheese Top Burger from KFC in the Philippines. It has a slice of melted cheese on the top of the bun, making it the LEAST 'streetwise' burger I've ever seen. Jesus, the only streetdumber sandwich would be one with ALL the condiments on the outside. No... / Continue →

    This is the $50,000 Barbecue Dining Boat from (who else?) Hammacher Schlemmer. What do you get for your $50,000? SPOILER: Not your money's worth. It's not even glass-bottomed for ogling mermaids! You might as well be cooking on a paddle boat. Just throw a grill on this par... / Continue →

    So apparently Rolls Royce puts fiber optic lights in the roofs of its cars to look like lil stars because God forbid you put glass there so you can see the real ones. Impressive, Rolls Royce. Kidding -- I'm pretty sure the limo I took to prom a decade ago had this. Creating ... / Continue →

    New York City butcher shop Japan Premium Beef recently had these meat balloons (created by design firm ODL) on display in their front window to...actually I don't know why. To make customers think you're a novelty balloon store? They don't look very appetizing, I can tell you... / Continue →

    Seen here shooting straight for the nuts, a robot designed to create and climb creases in fabric crawls up a man's pant leg. Don't worry though, I'm sure the robot's inventors created the thing out of necessity and not just for no reason. Its creators say that Clothbot could ... / Continue →

    Scientists in Grenoble, France have created a silver-crystal coated wallpaper that blocks Wi-Fi signals. The wallpaper will be available for sale next year, but amazingly isn't being marketing to the people who're convinced Wi-Fi signals cause testicular shrinkage and saggy bo... / Continue →
