How about a game of chutes and ladders? Uh, I mean snakes and ladders. Look, snakes are nature’s creepiest creation and robots are man’s creepiest creation. So naturally, scientists had to combine them both for maximum terror.
I think we all know who is responsible for ushering in the apocalypse. It’s those scientists at Carnegie Mellon’s Biorobotics Lab. Not content with snake-bots alone, they have now attached some modified snake-bots to a body to create a hexapod spider bot of doom.
I never really understood the point of Stormtrooper armor. Blasters go right though the stuff, making it useless except for looking cool. A geek named Scott Loxley has been walking across Australia wearing his Stormtrooper armor and recently that armor might have saved his life.
These boots are made from snakeskin. Not only that, but they also have actual cobra heads on the tips. They’re the perfect shoes for Cobra Commander or for an Indiana Jones villain. This is probably the one thing that would make Indy soil himself and run off into the night, never to return again.
We have seen plenty of robot snakes before. Sometimes they climb trees, or slither in the grass, maybe take a swim in the pool. I’m always on the lookout for them, since I know they will strangle me if they catch me off guard.
It’s funny how these days it’s so easy to go buy yourself a beard if you don’t have the patience to grow one. But if you’d like a really long beard – and I mean a REALLY long beard, then you’re out of luck.
Dogs are pretty good at rescue operations. They can be trained to sniff out survivors in a disaster area and they can traverse some terrain that humans can’t in half the time. However even dogs have problems in some situations.
You’ve got to love some of the wacky watch concepts over on the Tokyoflash Design Blog. I’m particularly amused by the latest design from our old pal Peter Fletcher, which gets its inspiration from that mobile phone “Snake.”
If this robot snake looks prehistoric to you, that’s because it is modeled after the actual prehistoric snake that shares the same name: Titanoboa. This 50-foot giant weighs over 2,000-pounds and yes it slithers around, making humans run.
I’m not saying that snakes are smart or anything, but I find it odd that while so many humans are occupying…everything, that this snake just happened to find itself in an ATM machine. Is he showing his solidarity with the Occupy Wall Street group?
…not Metal Gear Snake, but the plain old cellphone game Snake. Amazingly enough, all you have to do is tap or hold the Left arrow key on your keyboard, and a snake will appear, along with dots that you can eat to grow larger.
If there’s one thing that keeps Snake’s philosophical super spy saga fresh, it’s the gadgets. The upcoming Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker for the PSP is no different. Kotakuite Crimsondramon shared a link to a recently posted gameplay video that shows a bunch of weird yet practical gadgets that will aid Snake (and the other Snakes) in his latest adventure.
I don’t care if this lamp conjures up memories of my colonoscopy. It’s still cool.
The undulating twists and turns of Kundalini’s Abyss table lamp may look a bit like your intestinal tract, but there’s something about the bendy organic form that I find mesmerizing.
