Blizzard Says Mists of Pandaria Isn’t the Last World Of Warcraft Expansion

High-Voltage Plasma TV Burnout Is Spectactular, Dangerous
After watching countless “will it blend?” videos, I was actually getting pretty burnt out on viewing the destruction of countless innocent gadgets. Maybe it was because of the monotony of watching stuff getting chopped up in a blender.

Augmented Reality Ghost Hunt Games Bring the Ghouls to Life
I’m sure every town or city in the world has their own stories to tell about a certain abandoned house or building in the area that is purportedly haunted. I’m a big baby when it comes to ghosts, so I try to avoid these locations as much as possible.

New Plastic Bleeds When Damaged, Heals When Exposed to Light: Tupperware 2.0
We’ve seen circuitry that can heal itself. Now there’s a new kind of plastic that can not only heal but “bleed” as well. It has small molecular links that break when it’s cut or scratched, causing a red splotch to appear around the site of the damage.

Denver Zoo Has a Truck Powered by Poo
If there’s one thing that a zoo has in an abundance, it’s poop. You only have to wonder to the elephant or rhinoceros enclosures to see the mass quantities of poo zoo animals can produce. The Denver Zoo has a very cool way to deal with some of the poop its animals produce.

Custom Fallout Vault Dweller Sneakers Have a Pip-Boy in Each Tongue
You need an accessory if you are going to wear your Pip-Boy 3000 and I can’t think of anything better than these sneakers. Whether you are traveling to New Vegas or just one of the many vaults, they should get you across the American wastelands safely and still have some nice tread on them.

OS X Lion borrowed several features from iOS, like the Home-Screenish Launchpad and the annoying “natural scrolling,” which many of us have disabled.

Chinese Mini-Subs Allow You to Be Like James Cameron… Or Not
If you love what James Cameron just accomplished with his own deep-sea submersible, then you can have your own underwater adventures in these Chinese mini-submarines, which were the brainchild of a laid-off factory worker in Wuhan.

Galileo Pan & Tilt Stand: The Subject is the Center of This System

Galileo Pan & Tilt Stand: The Subject is the Center of This System
The scientist Galileo was persecuted for arguing that the Earth and other planets revolved around the Sun. This Galileo on the other hand will be loved for doing something less revolutionary but nonetheless practical. It’s a remotely controlled stand that pans and tilts an iOS device.
