We may someday have a weapon that will safely and effectively combat noise. Called the SpeechJammer, the device uses a technique called Delayed Auditory Feedback (DAF) – it replays back the target’s speech with a slight delay.
I’ve seen a lot of chairs in my day: the Salangbang Cocoon chairs that give you your privacy and the Convertible Rocking Cradle that goes from a crib to two rocking chairs. But I haven’t seen one that looks quite as snug and comfortable as the appropriately-named Snug.
Plants vs. Zombies has very adorable plants, but I wouldn’t mind a spin-off featuring a new character that used the plants as firearms as long as they look as awesome as these concept art by Fellipe Martins.
I’ve always had this appreciation for graffiti art. Notice that I’ve inserted the word “art” after “graffiti,” because I’m not talking about random scribbles or names that have been spray-painted haphazardly on walls. I’m talking about, you know, graffiti that was drawn or painted on as art.
This Indiana Jones cupcake looks super tasty. But why bake an Indiana Jones cupcake in the first place? Fortune and glory kid. Fortune and glory. Plus they are delicious. The Thuggee cult would kill you for this single cupcake.
If you liked shows like Mr. Wizard as a kid, you’ll want to check out this neat video, which shows students from the University of Pennsylvania separating two colored fluids that have been mixed together and suspended in a highly viscous liquid.
Yo dawg, I herd you like Raptors, so I put a LEGO Raptor in yo LEGO Raptor, so you can fly prehistoric-style while you fly. That’s what Jack Marquez, who goes by “Ewok in Disguise” on Flickr thought a lot about that when he was constructing his little F-22 Raptor fighter jet out of LEGO blocks.
When I first heard there was a movie about Donkey Kong a few years back, I thought it was a strange idea. But The King of Kong was actually an awesome movie, loaded with strange characters, and a great study of passionate (and obsessive) personalities.
Back in January, we shared a couple of geeky high-tech toy safes. One of them looked like the TARDIS from Doctor Who (the other looked like R2-D2.) At the time we first heard about thems, they were only headed for the U.K.
I think we’ve seen almost every version of Monopoly possible. There’s Star Trek Monopoly, Nintendo Monopoly, Star Wars Monopoly, Futurama Monopoly and now it looks like there’s a Street Fighter version coming from Capcom and USAopoly.
Here’s some interesting news for fans of the Assassin’s Creed franchise. It looks like some promotional artwork was leaked by a Best Buy employee and it appears to reveal that the new game will be set during the American Revolution.
Bugs of most types and all sizes make me queasy. The little ones, I don’t mind. But if they’re more than two centimeters long (or tall), then that’s enough to send me either screaming or running away from them – or both.
It seems that quadrocopters can do just about anything. Like the other robots, they are busy taking our jobs. In this case, they are getting ready to put conductors and orchestras out of business. They’ve hijacked the James Bond theme and have Moneypenny and Q tied up in the back!
I recently had a chance to sit down and try out the latest version of Alien Skin’s Exposure plug-in, which lets you easily perform all kinds of traditional film and darkroom tricks with your digital images.
We’ve seen weirder vending machines before, but this soon-to-open automatic cupcake machine in Beverly Hills, California takes the cake because, well, it sells cupcake! Owned by world famous cupcake bakery Sprinkles, it looks like an ATM from Equestria.
