Can 45 Layers of Bulletproof Glass Save You from an RPG?

Elvira: Mistress of the Dark Christmas Statue Puts the Boo in Boobies
Back in the day, I remember watching the Elvira: Mistress of the Dark show. It wasn’t so much a show as a reason to ogle a seductively dressed woman with a beehive hairdo and watch some scary movies.

Star Trek: TNG Enterprise VR Tour Is Insanely Detailed
Back in the day, the only way I could watch Star Trek: The Next Generation on local networks was to stay up really late. Those were the days well before DVRs, and no one in my house was qualified to program a VCR, so you watched it when it aired or you missed it altogether.

Café Makes Keyboard-Shaped Waffles: Sticky Keys
I like waffles, video games, and computers so this is a trifecta for me. Nexon is a company that makes video games and it has a computer museum in South Korea. At that museum is a café that serves up some very cool treats for visitors to snack on.

Selfies. A vile habit for the vain? Or just a fun way to be forever alone? Maybe both. Selfies jumped the shark a long time ago with such products as the Selfie Stick. Just when you thought the selfie accessories could not get any stranger, along comes the Selfie Spoon.

DIY Landspeeder Bed is the Night’s Sleep You’ve Been Looking for
Growing up, I loved Star Wars. I had the Star Wars sheets, all the toys, and wanted a real lightsaber so bad I could taste it. My parents weren’t craftsy, and didn’t build anything and I feel so gypped, after seeing what Redditor Ghostfaceace built for his son.

Synthesized music can now sound less synthesized with the latest voice bank for Yamaha’s Vocaloid software. Announced earlier this year, the Cyber Diva is the first library to have an American English female voice. Here’s a sample of a song created with the Cyber Diva and the new Vocaloid 4 Editor: While she still doesn’t sound like a real person, Cyber Diva is still a massive upgrade to earlier Vocaloids like Lola… or Miriam: Yamaha also said that the voice bank comes with a feature called Growl Expression that gives the samples a “harsher, gruff tone.” You can pre-order Cyber Diva, Vocaloid 4 Editor and Vocaloid 4 Editor for Cubase from Amazon for $130 (USD).
