We’ve yet to see a gadget really compete against the iPhone, to the extent that subscribers in the U.S. are willing to endure the sometimes horrible service of AT&T so that they can keep using Apple’s revolutionary product.
Even though it seems that the scientific sleuths of Mythbusters have run out of actual myths to test, we can’t deny that their show has brought us a ton of geeky fun throughout the years. From building a platoon of (literal) foot soldier robots to try and wreck a bridge, to trying to put out fire with fire, Adam and Jamie have gone to great lengths to pursue the truth in the name of science and fun.
A new species of dinosaur has been discovered at Craftster, and it is adawwwwwrable. I’ll give it the scientific name Facelessthicipus woolysaurus, but you can call it Dinohorsie.
The 2 ft. long Dinohorsie was made by the crazy imaginative craftster sparrowarms : “My daughter has always called Dinosaurs, Dinohorsies which got me thinking: what would a Dinohorsie look like?”
Actually no, it probably won’t be. And if Ribbon Hero does come out Microsoft will most likely distribute the game for free. istartedsomething‘s Long Zheng dug up a trademark application filed by Microsoft last November, which describes Ribbon Hero as a “computer software for training users to use business application software; and computer game software for use in computer user training.”
…or the daily crank, as the machine puts it. Says maker Blake Fall-Conroy, “Turning the crank will yield one penny every 5.04 seconds, for $7.15 an hour (NY state minimum wage).” Obviously the machine stops doling out money as soon as you stop turning the crank.
The cleverly designed Chocolate Sweet Magnet lets you break the whole bar into smaller pieces, so you can share it as you would a real chocolate bar. Just let the kids know that it’s made of wax and metal and not cocoa and milk.
If there’s anyone out there who still thinks that video games are for kids, here’s something to look at: a student named Matthew couldn’t answer one of the items in his math quiz, so he drew a Pokemon on his test paper instead.
Google’s auto-complete feature guesses what you’re looking for based on the most popular searches, giving you an idea of what other people are searching for as well as what’s on the Internet. I guess it was only a matter of time before someone found himself or herself staring at the suggestions and said, damn, I can’t believe these suggestions; I should make a blog about them.
In this case, the memory is embedded inside the sofa, but isn’t that the case with almost all of the other wacky flash drives on the market? I don’t know about you but I’d rather have my flash drive inside a sofa instead of a plastic UFO or Statue of Liberty or burger or credit card or T-Rex or bento box or kunai.
This weird iPhone musical instrument was spotted at a meet-up of MAKE Japan. Of course. There are three iPhones in that plastic (acetate?)... thing, running what seems to be an Ocarina-like app. I'm guessing the contraption sends the air blown through the mouthpiece to all three phones at once...
What’s red, shiny, goes fast, and looks like a vehicular accident? The Pontiac Aztek, that’s what. I’d rather have the Snaefell, François Knorreck’s lovingly handcrafted car-motorcycle hybrid. It’s easier to think of it as a motorcycle with a car-like sidecar, because I don’t think that you can drive – or steer – with the car half.
Robert Wong and his co-workers at Google’s Creative Lab created a bunch of short and funny clips showing how their search engine helps people not just to find websites but to improve their lives: “In other words, the best search results don’t show up on a webpage — they show up in somebody’s life.”
Think Gay Wilkinson’s anvil launching antics were crazy? 3 months ago, Bob Moravitz and his family and friends went beyond launching a small piece of metal – they launched cars. And a pickup. and a camper with a boat in tow.
