Golden Silk Orbweaver Spider Silk May Find Its Way inside Future Electronics
I hate spiders. They’re gross looking and even the ones that I know aren’t poisonous I still find extremely disturbing. Growing up in rural area, I spent plenty of time in the woods as a kid and have distinct memories of trying to peel spider webs out of my hair while imagining an angry, homeless spider is hiding just behind my ear waiting to crawl into my brain.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. That statement pretty much sums up why some people find certain things beautiful, while others may regard it as simply atrocious.

Final Audio Muramasa VIII Headphones Cost as Much as a Used Car
Recently, I’ve been contemplating a pair of $1500 Sennheiser HD800s, but those cost but a fraction of Final Audio’s ultimate headphones, which will set you back a cool 8 grand. But if you like the words handmade and Japanese, you’ll probably covet these cans.

Robot Pole Dancers Shake Their Money Makers
At this years CeBIT consumer electronics expo in Hannover, Germany, you’d expect there to be lots of cool innovations. A pair of pole-dancing robots was not what I was thinking, though. These are life-sized humanoids, with camera-shaped lights as heads that gyrate suggestively to music, which is played by a third DJ robot, who has a megaphone for a head.

2,000 Tennis Balls Bounce Through Art Gallery in Spain
Sometimes, pictures lie, and that’s no lie. I can personally attest to that, having bought tons of clothes and books via the Internet, only to get them in the mail and wonder why what I got was incredibly different from what I thought I bought.

Instaprint Will Make Your Parties the #Coolest #Ever

Cod Fish Lamps: Insert Sea/See Pun Here
We’ve featured more than a hundred different versions of lamps on our blog, but I’m fairly certain this is the first one I’ve seen that uses a dead animal. Called Uggi Lights (Uggi is Icelandic for “fish fin”), each lamp is made from the skin of cod fish.

Steampunk Portal Gun: Steeeeeaaaaaaaam
Aperture Science was founded during the 1970s, but if its scientists started work on the Handheld Portal Device in 1870, this is what the gun might have looked like. I must say, I’m liking this junkyard look more than the sterile original.
