    In news that proves it's time to start disassembling anything with metal parts, a 22-year old worker was killed at a Volkswagen plant near Kassel, Germany after an industrial robot slammed him against a metal plate. For reference, nobody deserves to go out like that. Heiko Hi... / Continue →

    This is some point-of-view and drone camera footage of the new Batman roller coaster opening this Saturday, May 23rd at Six Flags Fiesta Texas in San Antonio. It looks intense. Sadly, I'm afraid my roller coaster riding days are behind me. And you know what else is behind me?... / Continue →

    Merriam-Webster has just announced 5,000 new word additions to the Official Scrabble Dictionary, and many of them are what I like to refer to as "bullshit", which isn't even in the dictionary but should be. A sampling of some of the new words: BEATBOX (v. -ED, -ING, -ES) to ... / Continue →

    This is a $650 bulletproof iPhone case from Japanese manufacturer Marudai that can allegedly stop a .50-caliber round (but only from the rear). Unfortunately there's no PROOF it can stop a .50-caliber round, since they didn't bother making a video. So you're gonna just have t... / Continue →

    Osaka University, which is notorious for undertaking creepy robotic projects, just moved up my shit list, leap-frogging past the guy at my local Subway who can't make a f***in' tuna melt to save his life. "Have you threatened to stab him?" Pfft -- have I threatened to stab hi... / Continue →

    Zero chemicals, zero fun -- just ask my brain. The Chemistry 60 educational lab kit comes with a bunch of crap/garbage to perform '60 Fun Activities With No Chemicals', making it only slightly funner than an ant farm with no ants and nowhere near as fun as a Physics kit with n... / Continue →

    Seen here with their human doppelgangers (standing), a group of Geminoid robots telepathically plot the deaths of their caretakers so they can take over their lives and herald the rise of the machines. I don't know about you, but I, for one, do NOT welcome our new robotic over... / Continue →

    This is a video by Tim Thaler, who designed and built an iPhone controlled retractable kitchen island. While admittedly an interesting concept, YOUR ISLAND COUNTERTOP IS THE FLOOR HALF THE TIME. I don't know how things work in your house, but in my house the kitchen floor is... / Continue →

    Remember BigDog from Boston Dynamics? Ha, how could you forget, it haunts our dreams at night (well at least mine anyways). And now the creators have been awarded a grant from DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) to build 'Cheetah', a smaller, faster-than-human v... / Continue →

    This is a disturbing video of a team of autonomous quadrocopters building some sort of tower on their own. It appears be some kind of temple. Huh? YES "OF DOOM" WHAT OTHER KIND OF TEMPLE ARE AUTONOMOUS FLYING ROBOTS GONNA BUILD, DUMMY?! The GRASP Lab quadrocopters were impr... / Continue →

    "New technology -- quick, how can we use it for sex?" Note: Video after jump is NSFW due to awkward, scantily clad groping. A smut-peddling software company is hard(!) at work developing the first virtual sex games to make use of the XBox Kinect motion-control system. That's... / Continue →

    The Faucher family (suck it, Ben Stiller!) of Delaware loves Christmas. Granted they probably don't even know why it's celebrated, but they do love putting up Christmas lights. Me? I'm not allowed to anymore on account of chewing the bulbs. THEN STOP MAKING THEM LOOK LIKE C... / Continue →

    Note: 3:00 of insane fanboydom after the jump. This is a video of some 20-something crackpot wizard trying to win Moviefone's 'Biggest Harry Potter Fan' contest. Dude even changed his name to Harry Potter. I'm not gonna lie, he sounds like a shoe-in. Also, a sock-out, becau... / Continue →

    Note: High-res shot HERE in case you're a concerned dermatologist. Seen here proving symmetrically-sized tattoos are for backhairless pussies, Avatar tattoo guy just got finished getting Neytiri #6 (lower right). Per some comments he's posted on the Avatar fan board: lol and... / Continue →

    Why anybody (except this person) would pay $33 for a 3-liter can of Hello Kitty motor oil is beyond me. Actually, why Hello Kitty motor oil exists in the first place is beyond me. I mean, Hello Kitty fanatics that change their own oil? There can't be more than two one of t... / Continue →
