    Seen here learning the first lesson of BASE jumping (you actually have to jump) the hard way, Paraswift the robot falls from the side of a building. Hopefully to its death (but I'll settle for a maiming). The Paraswift uses a low pressure vortex that lets it stick to a smooth... / Continue →

    FAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKE. This is a solar paneled bikini designed to produce enough electricity to charge a cell phone or other equivalent gadgetry. It's been in development since 2006 which is weird because it shouldn't take five years to make a solar paneled bikini. I could d... / Continue →

    Jealous Old Woman who Lives in a Shoe is jealous. It actually gets zero feet per gallon because it's electric. It does get 250 miles to a single charge at speeds up to 30MPH though, which isn't bad. Still no word if it comes equipped with modern safety features like ankle so... / Continue →
