After watching countless “will it blend?” videos, I was actually getting pretty burnt out on viewing the destruction of countless innocent gadgets. Maybe it was because of the monotony of watching stuff getting chopped up in a blender.
If you live in a tough neighborhood – or perhaps one overrun with zombies – you might want to carry something to defend yourself with. While you could go with some brass knuckles, or maybe even some electrified ones, the iKnucks seem like a much more practical idea for today’s gadget-obsessed consumers.
I attended an all-girls school, so there was none of those after-school brawls and fistfights that I heard were a common occurrence at coed or all-boys schools. Some guys “cheat” by wearing brass knuckles because it lets them pack a meaner punch.
People all over the world do either crazy stuff or get into stupid messes because of carelessness. One recent incident of stupidity was when this man dropped a firecracker down a manhole in front of his two kids.
Electronics and electricity geek Grenadier aspires to someday be a radiologist. But instead of waiting to use a proper X-Ray machine at a hospital or doctor’s office, he decided to build his own at home.
Scientists are searching for the reasons why humans laugh, and are studying all sort of animals to figure out if other species laugh as well. It’s easy to imagine that gorillas and other monkeys would laugh when tickled, since they are some of the animals closest to humans.
If you’re looking for another weapon to add to your arsenal to protect yourself from the inevitable zombie apocalypse, you might want to consider carrying an umbrella with you. No you’re not going to use it to keep dry while the zombies get wet in the rain, you’re going to use it and stab them in the eyes and then disembowel them.
Despite what I’ve learned from video games, I actually think I like my chances of running away from a flamethrower-wielding villain versus one armed with a loaded gun. But that didn’t stop one hacker from building a flamethrower that looks like a pistol.
Generally, when we talk about the wild man with slingshots, Joerg Sprave, he is trying out a new slingshot. Joerg has something a bit different he is talking about this time around and it’s actually pretty interesting.
The flashlight repulsor beam blaster was cool. Patrick Priebe’s Laser Glove Mk III is hot. Priebe, a laser enthusiast and Iron Man fan, has been developing a palm-mounted laser using consumer-grade parts and a bit of metalwork.
Decent Airsoft guns can look quite realistic and menacing. But YouTuber styropyro figured his Airsoft gun wasn’t geeky enough, so he gutted it out and converted it to a laser rifle. So instead of a gun that shoots bullets at a hundred miles per hour, now styropyro has a gun with a projectile that goes at the speed of light.
Wicked Lasers nearly got burned by Lucasfilm because one of their lasers looked a lot like a lightsaber. It seems that they got the upper hand in that legal battle, and now they’re tempting fate again with the Sith Series laser, the “world’s first double handed laser”, a device as jaw-dropping as it is impractical.
A few years ago we featured a couple of rear-view mirrors that doubled as monitors and supported Bluetooth integration for hands-free calling. It seems as if not enough morons have died on the road, because the distraction-packed rear-view mirror is back, packed with more distraction than ever before.
Everytime I hear that someone has been Tased, or a reporter has allowed himself or herself to be Tased I hope they crap themselves. I would think if you have been holding in a deuce all day and you get hit with a Taser you’re going to have more than a turtlehead poking out.
