In this this new commercial for Statoil gas stations in Norway, a construction worker uses an 8.5-ton excavator to prepare a hot dog and feed it to his friend. Safely.
This takes some serious skill. I’m not saying I couldn’t do it.
Watch as this presumably drunk $8,000 humanoid NAO robot tries to feed a dog a Pop-Tart. Unfortunately, things don’t go as planned.
The owner hands him the toaster pastry, and the robot is all impressed saying, “Wow!” as it examines the treat.
Imgur member GatorMacheteJr says he loved Fallout 3 so much that he started saving bottle caps. I say he’s just lazy. In any case, after about 7.5 years he had amassed about 2,240 bottle caps, which together weighed about 11 pounds.
E3 starts in a couple of weeks, which means new games will be announced, and leaks about those games will pop up online until the event starts. Webcomic creator Brian Lee decided to poke fun at such leaks and the Web’s appetite for them by creating a website that randomly generates a schedule for Nintendo’s E3 Digital Event featuring non-existent games.
Despite the advances in hardware and software and lots of guides online, 3D printing can still be tedious, even for experienced makers. One of the hassles of 3D printing is that your print can get stuck on the print bed; you’ll have to wait for it to cool then gingerly pry it off.
We have some very good reasons to fear our future robot overlords, but this video is proof that we still have plenty of time until we are all enslaved. IEEE Spectrum put together this video compilation of robots falling down at the 2015 DARPA Robotics Challenge.
Tiny Hamster has evolved into a Kaiju and he will not stop until he has eaten everything in sight and stomped every building to ashes. It’s mayhem in the streets. carnage even. But cute carnage. Adorable even.
LEGO enthusiast Steve Price shows what could happen if the girls of the LEGO Friends set got their hands on the Galactic Empire’s Death Star. In Steve’s The Friends Star, the Heartlake City kids gave the Star Wars space station a bright and pastel-colored makeover, then they invited their buddies for what has to be the largest children’s party in the galaxy.
Growing up, if a movie had Arnold Schwarzenegger in it I went to see it at the theater – assuming mom would get me into a R-rated flick. If not, I just wanted for it to come out on video and watched it on the VCR.
Every time I watch The Avengers, I think to myself that Hawkeye really doesn’t belong there with the others. His only superpower seems to be shooting an arrow and having good vision. Black Widow is questionable as well but she likes tight clothing and can throw a punch so I am willing to let her slide for now.
When last we saw Wallace the rabbit, he was eating his Game of Thrones Iron Throne that his owner made for him using carrots. Since then his hunger for power has only increased.
Wallace’s owner is a big Game of Thrones fan.
A new PC maker called Micle is raising money on the Chinese crowdfunding site JD Finance for what is hands down the most ridiculous PC case I’ve ever seen. It’s not carved out of a rock, or made to look like a pervy doll or a cardboard box.
Someone call King Triumph, because Super Fan Builds made an Iron Throne… for you to poop on. The show made the pointy toilet for A Song of Ice and Fire fan John Giovanazzi and the customers of his bar Complex in Los Angeles, where John sometimes holds Game of Thrones-themed events.
