Tired of eating the same old boring dinners every night? Looking for something different to spice things up a bit? How about an up to 4-inch giant Asian scorpion? Mmmmm! Is your mouth watering? My mouth is watering.
Now I know what you’re thinking, and I couldn’t agree more: the wait is finally over. Pampshades (“P” from pan, bread in Japanese, and “ampshade” from lampshade) are lamps made from actual bread loaves. Did anybody else just lick make-believe crumbs from their fingers?
Because our scientists were so preoccupied with whether they could that they didn’t stop to think if they should, physicists at Leiden University have 3D printed a tiny tugboat only 30-microns in length. For reference, an average human hair is about 90-microns in width, although mine is much thicker because I shampoo with a product specifically formulated for bears.
Looking for a fun arts and crafts project? How about making your own wearable alien facehugger entirely out of rubber bands per this Instructable created by user tofugami? Personally, I can’t wait to make one, then slip it on when my girlfriend isn’t paying attention and see what she says.
Were you a good boy or girl this year? Doesn’t matter, 2020 has spoken and we’re all getting ketchup flavored candy canes for Christmas anyways. Created by Archie McPhee, a six-pack of “rich tomato flavor” ketchup candy canes costs $6.50 and is sure to be absent from every single Christmas list this year.
Here’s some more next-level cake decorating from Natalie Sideserf of Sideserf Cake Studio. The professional pastry chef in Austin, Texas made a video showing how she made this realistic mutant monster toad cake. The toad was inspired by one of the creatures in the recently released post-apocalyptic Love And Monsters movie.
Because sometimes you need to diversify your assets and Disney has decided it wants to add some nightmare fuel to its portfolio, they recently posted a video of a humanoid robot developed by its research division with a “realistic and interactive lifelike gaze.”
When I make a run to The Home Depot, it’s usually because I need some 2x4s, drywall compound, or drill bits. So go figure that while I was shopping on their website for some completely unrelated hardware, this thing popped up on my Facebook page later in the day.
Want to own your own giant murder hornet (Vespa mandarinia) as a memento to remember 2020 by? Well, you’re in luck, because BicBugs has got some very nice specimens available. Sold with their wings spread, they’re available either unmounted ($47), or pinned and framed ($59), and are sure to be one of this Christmas’s must-have gifts.
Have you ever gotten stuck in traffic behind a funeral procession? Those things move so slowly. Perhaps they’d move faster if the hearse had more horsepower. Something like a Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, with its 700+ horses, should do the trick.
This is the life-size Uncle Fester Lamp created by Etsy seller ShrewdApe, based on Jackie Coogan’s Uncle Fester character from the 1964-1966 television series The Addams Family. Obviously, I very much need this staring at me from the dresser while I get ready for bed every night.
This is the Amazon exclusive Monopoly Longest Game Ever Edition (affiliate link). The game doesn’t end for anyone when they go bankrupt; oh no, the game only ends when a single player owns every single property on the board – of which there are three times more than in a regular game.
The Tesla Cybertruck already features a bonkers design that looks like something out of a 1980s science fiction movie. The angular, all-electric pickup truck has a pretty intimidating presence as shown in factory form, but it’s definitely more of an urban assault vehicle than something you could seriously take off-road.
There’s something about creatures with more than four legs that creeps me out. The more legs, the worse the creepy factor. While spiders sit somewhere in the middle between an ant and a millipede, they can still be pretty terrifying, especially if you’re an arachnophobe.
Dreams are weird enough all on their own. So the idea that technology could be used to influence your dreams seems like it could produce even stranger results. Now, researchers from MIT are developing a system that could do just that.
