Robot Tuna to Protect America’s Watery Borders?

LEGO Great Ball Contraption: The Best Useless Thing You’ll Ever See
We’ve featured LEGO mad scientist akiyuki and his Great Ball Contraption before, but the updated version of his machine is too awesome not too share. The machine is about 101 feet long and shuffles 500 balls around.

Exhaust Burger Might Just be the Grossest Way to Grill a Patty
I love it when people come up with designs and gadgets that make it easier and convenient to do stuff that would normally take a while, like grill a burger. But the Exhaust Burger – I don’t love.

LibeTech Uses QR Codes as Door Keys: Convenient or Dangerous?
Mobile phones are making a lot of things obsolete – payphones, maps, privacy – because of cheap and easy to use apps. A new open source technology might add keys – and keychains, and locksmiths – to the cellphone hit list.

Zelda-Themed Bedroom: It’s Dangerous to Grow Up Alone
What’s with all of these kids getting special geek bedrooms and beds shaped like vehicles? I had a boring room with a boring bed because I had boring parents. Yeah, I’m a little bitter. Anyway, this is a pretty awesome Zelda inspired bedroom.

Egg Chairs Let You Feel What It’s Like to Be a Giant Chicken

Egg Chairs Let You Feel What It’s Like to Be a Giant Chicken
These chairs are nothing like the egg chairs we showed you almost a year ago. This time around, these chairs are for human seating and not for your hard-boiled (or soft-boiled) eggs.

Spock + Soccer = Spocker?

Spock + Soccer = Spocker?
While much of the world knows the game with a round black and white ball as “football,” here in the U.S., we call the game “soccer.” So this picture of multiple Spocks dressed up in soccer uniforms probably only makes sense here, in Canada and maybe Australia.

Assassin’s Creed Kenway Jacket For All Of Your Parkour Needs

pomm Uncorks the iPadCorkCase
There’s no denying the fact that I’m always looking for a really good iPad case. It looks like the Portuguese design studio pomm has created a pretty cool iPad case, made up entirely of cork. I wonder if it will float if dropped into water, or if you can stick pushpins into it.

MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer Prints Just About Anything
In the realm of awesome computer peripherals, I think the new MakerBot Replicator 2 desktop 3D printer is probably the most epic of all. After all, it’s a peripheral for your computer that you can actually use to make 3D objects you can hold in your hands.

Amusement Park Riders Get Stuck 300 Feet in the Air

Amusement Park Riders Get Stuck 300 Feet in the Air
I go to amusement parks, but if I’m being honest, I’m not a big fan of heights. I don’t tell people I’m afraid of heights because I don’t want to be a puss. So I do the next best thing, I walk really slowly and scream at anyone who touches me even slightly because I’m convinced I’ll suddenly fly off those high platforms.
