We all know the slogan for pork – The Other White Meat. Apparently, the legal firm retained by the National Pork Board, Faegre & Benson, has zero sense of humor and taken offense to a fake product ThinkGeek has on their website.
Not that this idea is really good for anything other than looking cool, you’ve gotta hand it to these Japanese researchers, who have managed to create a special tank which can momentarily suspend illustrations in water.
By sending precisely coordinated pulses through the water, the National Maritime Research Institute is able to generate pre-determined shapes out of the waves.
Okay, it really wouldn’t help me score less than a 35 handicap, but this Batman golf cart would definitely cheer me up the next time I four-putt, or can’t hit past the ladies’ tee box. This his undeniably great Tumbler-inspired golf cart was recently spotted on the Warner Bros.
I’m not one to worry about germs. If you sneeze on me, I am more worried about the snot that might land on me than I am any germs making me sick too. If you start to think about all the germs, we are around each day you will end up peeing in pickle jars and hiding from the public – Howard Hughes style.
It’s every geek’s nightmare: mistakenly putting your precious gadgets into a bag and accidentally having them thrown out! This happened to Eric Boehs and he managed to use MobileMe to track down his lost iPad and iPhone.
I was pretty sad when they announced plans to take down the 60-foot Gundam statue that was erected last year in Tokyo. Luckily, Bandai recently announced that they were going to put it up again in Shizuoka, 125 miles west of Tokyo.
While people have always wondered what the value of URL link shortening services like bit.ly could possibly be (beyond shorter links), the guys over at bit.ly have taken wraps off just a tiny glimmer of the power of mass-quantities of crowdsourced data.
One of the 25 semi-finalists at this year’s Electrolux Design Lab competition is this radical re-imagining of the refrigerator, which if you think of it hasn’t really changed that much in recent years. We have refrigerators that are run by different power sources, but basically, what we know as refrigerators are insulated compartments with heat pumps that remove heat from inside the compartment and transfer it outside.

While everyone was checking out all the shiny new games at E3, we somehow missed this oddity. The guys at Namco Bandai are working on a brand new Pac-Man TV show. And it’s no ordinary 2D stuff, it’s got a whopping 3, count ’em, 3 dimensions.
The guys over at Gametrialers were fortunate enough to get their hands on a copy of the trailer, which you can check out below.
Hitachi just unveiled an updated version of its humanoid robot, the EMIEW2. This interesting acronym stands for Excellent Mobility and Interactive Existence as Workmate2, which probably sounds way better in Japanese.
The number of just plain stupid gadgets that you can buy and connect to your USB port is bewildering. The new Pepper Mouth concept gadget is one of the dumbest I have seen though. It assumes we want to stop calling the idiots we talk to on IM or in chat session’s names and cursing at them.
I’ve never really had the patience to create an elaborate sand sculpture. At best, I’ve created simple little castles. However, these sculptures are anything but simple. Check out these amazing ephemeral Star Wars sculptures created in sand.
