Would You Trust This Robot to Stick a COVID-19 Test Swab Up Your Nose?

Thomy Rot-Weiß Is Ketchup and Mayonnaise Packaged Like Toothpaste
Ketchup, mustard, mayo, teriyaki, bbq sauce, sriracha… Let’s face it, I’m a big condiment fan. While I don’t always mix my condiments, some combinations work better than others.

That Time Someone Sang Eminem’s “Without Me” in Klingon
The internet is a strange and wonderful place. The nature of its persistent storage means that you sometimes discover things within 10 seconds of them going live, and other times 10 years after they’re posted. This is definitely one of those 10+ year situations, but it’s too good not to share.

This Device Can Synthesize Any Flavor on Your Tongue: Taste the Rainbow
Back in the 1990s a team of engineers created a device called the iSmell. This unusual gadget used scent cartridges to simulate a wide variety of aromas, which could be triggered through computer code. The iSmell ultimately failed due to lack of market interest, but I always thought the idea that you could create anything from the smell of hot chocolate to pepperoni pizza just by mixing chemicals was pretty fascinating.

You Could Empty This Cardboard Vending Machine with a Box Cutter
