12-Year Old Boy Rescues Sister From Moose Using World of Warcraft Skills: Our Best Headline Yet

12-Year Old Boy Rescues Sister From Moose Using World of Warcraft Skills: Our Best Headline Yet
12-year old Norweigan Hans Jørgen Olsen saved himself and his sister from being harmed by an angry moose by emulating skills he learned from World of Warcraft. According to NextNature, the Olsen siblings “trespassed the territory of the moose during a walk in the forest near their home.” When the moose attacked, Hans used the Warrior ability Taunt, i.e.

Lightleafs OLED Bookmark Concept: Please Make These Now.

Lightleafs OLED Bookmark Concept: Please Make These Now.
This simple concept design for a bookmark is absolutely brilliant – both figuratively and literally. Designer Valentina Trimani’s Lightleafs light-up bookmark would use a bright OLED light source, and not only would mark your pages, but provide sufficient illumination to read in bed with the lights off.

Little Old Lady Demands Removal of Google Pac-Man

Little Old Lady Demands Removal of Google Pac-Man
Now I didn’t realize that anyone actually needed tech support on how to use Google, but this audio recording from somebody’s granny demanding removal of Google’s recent Pac-Man game is just too funny to ignore. I love the part where she says she needs to “turn her monitor on” in order to reproduce the problem.

Directv Answers My Dvr Prayers With Whole Home Dvr

Directv Answers My Dvr Prayers With Whole Home Dvr
If you’re a guy, you can admit it – having to watch girl shows can really suck. Every time a guy has to sit and watch The Bachelorette or Real Housewives with their significant other, somewhere a kitten dies.

Belvedere the Bulterbot: Indentured Robotic Servitude

Belvedere the Bulterbot: Indentured Robotic Servitude
Couldn’t you use a robotic butler? I know that I sure could. This goofy home-made Butlerbot was created for the 1st birthday of its creator’s son, Ethan. That all sounds like the setup for some sort of science fiction film that goes horribly wrong when the robot assumes the personality of Ethan and becomes convinced its creator is its “father.” Thankfully, that’s not what actually happens here – at least not yet.

Life-Size Plywood Hubble Telescope Won’T Ever Go Into Orbit

Life-Size Plywood Hubble Telescope Won’T Ever Go Into Orbit
These amazing sculptures were created by the Australian artist Peter Hennessey.  And no, they can’t fly. They’d probably burn up on lift-off if you even tried to launch one into space. My Hubble will premiere at the Biennale of Sydney 2010.

Quadrotor Drone Would be a Great Circus Performer. or Relentless Hunter.

Quadrotor Drone Would be a Great Circus Performer. or Relentless Hunter.
The University of Pennsylvania’s autonomous quadrotor helicopter reminds me of a dog. It’s just waiting to be unleashed, to do tricks, to zip from one place to another. It can do backflips, even triple backflips, pass through narrow spaces without breaking a sweat, and can even be upgraded with Velcro.

Biometric Sensors Detect Stress: Electronic Shrink

Biometric Sensors Detect Stress: Electronic Shrink
I don’t know about you, but I usually know when I’m stressed. I don’t need any gadget to tell me that. Looking at a mirror also does the trick. But that doesn’t mean that stress-detecting technology is useless.

Why James Rhodes Looks Different in Iron Man 2, as Explained by a Pokemon Fan

Why James Rhodes Looks Different in Iron Man 2, as Explained by a Pokemon Fan
Some people have been wondering why Terrence Howard didn’t return to play as War Machine in Iron Man 2. Fork Party reader Andy B isn’t one of those people, because he knows exactly what happened:

Wake Up With Sony Dash

Wake Up With Sony Dash
Sony touts its new Dash multimedia device with this funny commercial which sells us on the advantages of using the Dash as a high-tech alarm clock. Sony is airing the spot in the Washington D.C. and San Fransisco areas to get some buzz building for the recently released personal internet device.

iPhone 4 Price, Release Date and Specs Revealed

iPhone 4 Price, Release Date and Specs Revealed
As expected by pretty much the entire world, Steve Jobs today showed off the new iPhone 4 at WWDC 2010 at San Francisco’s Moscone Center. With all of the leaked prototypes over the last couple of months, we weren’t expecting too many surprises today.

Apple Magic Trackpad Coming Today Says Rumors

Apple Magic Trackpad Coming Today Says Rumors
One of the things I hate most about working on a notebook or netbook is the trackpad. I really hate those things. They are just not nearly as accurate for me as a normal mouse. I would never consider using one for my desktop like the Apple Magic Trackpad rumored to be launching today.

New Guitar Hero Guitars Look Awesome

The guys over at Gizmodo got their hands on early pics of the new guitars for Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock, and they’re really looking sweet. By moving all of the electronics out the body of the guitar and into the neck,  you’ll be able to swap outthe bodies to personalize your guitar to your own liking.

Space Invaders Balloon Art Pops Up in Spain

Space Invaders Balloon Art Pops Up in Spain
I always enjoy seeing Space Invaders turning up in unlikely places. This time, it looks like the Space Invaders took over parts of Girona, Spain last month. These installations were realized by El Colmado in collaboration with Quim Roqué and Helena Delgado for their (badly named) spaceinvARTders exhibition.

Fossils of the Mechazoic Era: the What Now?

Fossils of the Mechazoic Era: the What Now?
Poor dead bird. Wait what the — It’s a dead robo-bird! Artist/illustrator/futurechologist Justin Chase Black, more respectfully addressed as Mr. ThrowingChicken, recently finished the awesome looking  Creatures of the Mechazoic Era, a series of sculptures that look like fossilized remains from a time yet to come.
