The biggest wound I ever had when I was a kid was about two inches in diameter. It hurt, it looked gross, and I probably cried buckets whenever my mom would change the dressing. But those nasty looking open wounds you see on this girl’s knees down below?
My dad loved his old, ratty couch to pieces. It was the one he sat on for all those Super Bowl games and NBA Finals through the years, and it showed. My mom was always ragging on him to either throw it out or get it upholstered, and he obviously chose the latter.

I loves me some ooey-gooey Alien Chestbursters, and I certainly enjoy the occasional PS3 game. This over-the-top casemod combines both.
Modder GivinTats originally did another Alien casemod a while back, and then had someone reach out to him to make a custom mod featuring a gory Chestburster pushing its way out of the side of a poor old 1st gen PlayStation 3.
Since the original movie Chestburster is said to assimilate some traits of its host, GivinTats decided to make him a bit of an alien cyborg instead of a straight-up organic creature.
First we had artificial pork, and now we have artificial blood. Scientist Samir Mitragotri and his colleagues have successfully created artificial red blood cells using biodegradable polymer molds. The lab-made cells are of the same size and shape as the real deal, and are also elastic enough that they can squeeze into passageways tinier than their diameter.
This Xbox 360 faceplate isn’t actually bloody (I hope!), but it is certainly evocative of the horror of a zombie apocalypse–something that is becoming a more and more common experience with Xbox games every day. Seems like zombies are everywhere lately, bursting out of zombie games and invading everything else.
It’s Strange & Wonderful Wednesday, and as I was perusing the offerings of the Internet I came upon Gerard Vlemmings’ – aka The Presurfer – link to an article on blogbits about weird cameras. They were weird alright: there was an 18-carat gold plated Pentax LX and even a pistol-shaped camera.
You know how all the vampires on True Blood drink bottles of artificial blood so they don’t have to get their nutrients from sucking on humans? Now you can enjoy the same trendy-vampire pleasure by guzzling down a bag of deliciously drinkable BLOOD.
Remember how in Wall-E how the humans got so lazy that they left everything in the hands of robots? Seems some people need to watch – or re-watch – that awesome movie, because it seems that we’re just looking for excuses to build a robot.
The bloody hand of Left 4 Dead is one of those images that sticks out–partially, I’m sure, because of the wonderful atmosphere of the game itself, in which those bloody handprints are so often wielded to chilling effect.
Been dying to do over your bathroom decor with a Hitchcockian theme? Well I can think of no better place to start than with these accessories.
Imagine the surprise of your roommate when they wake up tomorrow morning to find this Blood Bath shower curtain hanging in place of the old one.
After a brief shot at being practical and ingenious, the Japanese are back to being weird again with this morbid and messy yet minimalist lamp from DCS Corp:
Designed by Kouichi Okamoto, the Liquid Lamp is made of steel and comes equipped with a 25-watt bulb.
Hitachi has taken the wraps off of a new payment technology that lets you make purchases with only your finger.
The new biometric system can measure the unique signature of the blood vessels in your fingers to authenticate transactions.
