Extreme Diet Coke & Mentos Kit Lets You Make Your Own Carbonated Mess
Growing up, the mix of candy and soft drink we all feared was Pop Rocks and Dr. Pepper. The word on the playground was that mixture would blow the teeth right out of your head. All I know is that the mix will give you some serious burps.

Menas Zoom Adds Adjustable Zoom to Magnifying Glass

Menas Zoom Adds Adjustable Zoom to Magnifying Glass
You know what a magnifying glass needs? MORE MAGNIFICATION. Though this doesn’t seem to be like a particularly bad idea, it does seem silly to put zoom on something that is meant for magnifying. Though I must say, there is no part of me that would object if one of these showed up on my doorstep.

Nosedial Makes Calling From Your iPhone Nose-Friendly
Ever tried using your iPhone with gloves on? It doesn’t work very well. Believe me, I’ve tried. Yes, I also know that there are plenty of special gloves out there, and even ways to convert traditional gloves to work with touchscreens.

Professor at New York University has Camera Installed in His Head
When it comes to art, I am a bit of a purist. I like Italian artists from back in the renaissance days. There is some modern art that I think is pretty cool, but here are some things that folks try and call art that is really questionable.

Potato Crisp Hand Keeps Your Fingers Grease-Free

Potato Crisp Hand Keeps Your Fingers Grease-Free
I’ll be the first to admit that I’m the kind of geek who spends most of my time in front of a computer or with a controller in my hands. Naturally, I’m going to want food during this time, and chips are an easy go-to snack.

Lifelike Robot Hand Freaks Us Out
You’ve gotta hand it to the Japanese (pun intended) – they sure know how to build strange robots. The latest oddity has to be the Robot Hand H-Type from Squse.

Chicken Burger USB Hub: Why?

Chicken Burger USB Hub: Why?
I think the headline pretty much sums it up. I have no idea why anyone would either make or buy this thing, but it’s just too ridiculous to pass up. The Chicken Burger USB Hub definitely wins the prize for the best and most descriptive product name of the week.

Synthinetic: That Thing’S a Synthesizer?

Synthinetic: That Thing’S a Synthesizer?
At first glance at this ridiculous looking thing, I thought I was looking at some sort of wooden kids’ toy. But this oddball device is actually a synthesizer. Created by Alex Abreu & Ithai Benjamin, the Synthinetic is simply described as “The little kinetic noisy synthesizer of your dreams.” Assuming your dreams include strange squeaky, bleepy noises, I suppose.

Enviro-Bear 2010: Best iPhone Driving Game Ever (With Bears)

Enviro-Bear 2010: Best iPhone Driving Game Ever (With Bears)
Now let me start by saying this. When I say “best”, I really mean “weirdest”, but once you check out Enviro-Bear 2010 for the iPhone and iPod Touch, you’ll understand why I say that. Actually, according to Destructoid’s Anthony Burch’s review of the PC version, Enviro-Bear is the “best, and only bear-driving-a-car-simulator”, which I have to say puts a slightly finer point on it than I did.

Nissan Rock Mystery Vehicle – My Guess: Cars for Cats
The guys over at Yanko Design came across this mysterious miniature vehicle called ROCK. Created by Mexico City industrial designer Alberico J. Camacho, the ROCK dons a tiny Nissan logo, and looks something like an oversize bowling ball on wheels.

Weird Insect Eggs Don’t Need No Special Effects

Weird Insect Eggs Don’t Need No Special Effects
They say that truth is stranger than fiction. I say that when it comes to eggs, fictional eggs are overall much much freakier.  I mean, are there any real eggs that spawn facehuggers? But as these pictures will show you, real eggs can be really weird too.
