    This is a video of Geekologie reader Ryan's Marty McFly and hoverboard costume for Halloween. Pretty clever, right? I wish I would have thought of that. I didn't though, so now Ryan is getting all the credit that SHOULD HAVE BEEN mine. What a jerk. Just kidding Ryan, nice ... / Continue →

    After teasing us for over a month (my nipples have been hard for weeks), Lexus has finally released a video of their liquid nitrogen-cooled magnetic superconductor hoverboard being ridden. It is more impressive that I imagined, and pro skateboarder (but only novice hoverboarde... / Continue →

    This is a short video tutorial showing you how to turn your smartphone (sorry, no dumb phones or pagers) into a holographic projector. All you really need are a couple pieces of plastic (you can even cut up a CD case!) and an app (like this one for iPhones and Androids) or a v... / Continue →
