    And all it takes is a skylight, a doll, some tape, and a ladder. Although you don't even need a ladder if you have a pet dragon or can jump onto the roof from the top of a car parked in your driveway (that's what I do). And if you think I didn't just round up all my little si... / Continue →

    THE SIGN SAYS NO TOUCHING, LADY! This was the coolest thing on display at the recent Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Granted I didn't go, but I showed this video (and ONLY this video. Okay, plus a cat one) to a couple friends and they agreed. It's a smart window fro... / Continue →

    Dum dum dum! Bright Blinds (concept posted back in '07, now a real product) are blinds with a light behind them designed to look like a window. But when you yank the cord to actually see out the window, PRESTO! there isn't one. Nope, you're just staring at the hole you punc... / Continue →

    This is a video of some guy shooting at his boss with an AK-47 to demonstrate the structural integrity of the bulletproof glass their company sells. It's...pretty sketchy. I'm not sure what would've happened if he'd kept firing instead of only putting three bullets in the gla... / Continue →

    This is a 3-minute video mock-up of Toyota's futuristic 'Window to the World' concept. Basically it's a "smart" car window that allows a passenger to draw on it, display information (name, distance, etc.) about objects you're passing, and even zoom in on them. Admittedly, it ... / Continue →

    You've got to admit, for someone from Indiana that's pretty clever. Kidding! I don't actually have anything against Indiana. Now North Dakota -- God, don't even get me started. Psyche, I'm cool with them too. But NOT Montana, Hannah. Really not happy about that whole situat... / Continue →

    The Bender House looks like Bender's dome from Futurama. If you've never seen Futurama I'm going to assume you don't have a television or internet so you probably aren't even reading this. Unless they print out copies of Geekologie and distribute them in Africa, which, I thin... / Continue →

    A kangroo recently broke into the home of Beat Ettlin while he and his family were sleeping. He mistook the kangaroo for a ninja and began to pummel the 90lb beast. The 42-year-old told Sky News Online: "I just saw this black thing. I thought it was a lunatic ninja, an intrud... / Continue →

    The barreleye (Macropinna microstoma for you ichthyologists) is a deepwater fish that has a see-through, fluid filled head in which it moves its eyeballs. And that, dear reader, is freaking awesome. Barreleyes, just a few inches long, are thought to eat small fishes and jel... / Continue →

    John Nouanesing, the same designer behind the drippy paint table and Geekini has come up with a clever window treatment -- Fenêtres 3.1 (Windows 3.1). As you can see, they make your windows look like Windows 3.1 windows. And, if it's particularly crappy looking outside, you ... / Continue →

    I don't even know. Apparently American artist (artist used very lightly) Paul McCarthy created an exhibit entitled "Complex Shit" that consisted of an inflatable dog turd the size of a house. Well, the inflatable pew got loose from and wreaked havoc in Switzerland. The wind ... / Continue →

    Look around. See any flames? Take a whiff. Does it smell like smoke? Take your iPod's earbuds out. Is there a fire-alarm blaring? If so, strap on the Wizard safety pack, attach the end of the lifeline to something sturdy (no, not your computer monitor) and then dive out a... / Continue →

    The Venetian Blind t-shirt is a shirt that bares your beautifully tanned abs if you're a sexy woman or your pasty, hairy beergut if you're me. All with a simple pull of the string. Now I'm not sure if it goes all the way to the top or not, but it sucks pretty bad if it doesn'... / Continue →

    Damnit, I hate it when this happens. You find a sick Nintendo painted the same gold as the original Zelda cartridges (if you don't know about those I'm afraid we can't be friends), complete with custom cut-out Triforce window on top, and, just my luck -- the freaking eBay auct... / Continue →

    Two Japanese designers have created Bright Blinds, which are blinds to be hung on blank walls to give the appearance of a window underneath. Electroluminescent sheeting is responsible for the simulated daylight, and the amount of light emitted is controlled via the same methods... / Continue →

    I hate getting out of the shower and ready to shave only to realize I can't see a damn thing in the bathroom mirror. If I leave the bathroom door open while I shower it helps, but then I get a cold breeze in there that makes my penis shrivel up inside me. And wiping the mirro... / Continue →

    The Delft University of Technology has developed the first solar powered mouse. It only charges on actual sunlight, so there is question as to whether the mouse can be implemented in real world work environments. According to the University, its success depends on: a lot of ... / Continue →
