If you are a UFO or conspiracy nut, prepared to get tweaked. The FBI tosses documents up on its FBI Vault website all the time. One of the latest documents to hit that Vault site is circa 1950 and has to do with the infamous Roswell crash that many allege was a UFO crash.
Assuming you like to carry a wad of cash in your pocket instead of a wallet, here’s a fun little invention that keeps your bills in order without looking like anything is there. The so-called “Invisible Money Clip” lets you organize your cash without a bulky wallet or money clip.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Don’t you hate those times when you’re having a pleasant conversation with someone, only to have it interrupted by their phone?
There’s a good chance that the other person would be just as annoyed if it were your phone going off.
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.
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.
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.”
Martin Jones lost his eyesight about 10 years ago, when “a white hot tub of aluminum exploded in his face” while we was working at a scrapyard. Doctors had to remove his left eye, while his right eye was rendered useless because of the damage.
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.
Yep, Justin Smith’s Enviro-Bear 2010 is a driving game, but you play a bear who’s managed to get behind the wheel, and all he can do is use a single oversize paw to steer, accelerate, brake, shift gears, and throw crap out of the passenger compartment that gets in the way of his main goals – to eat fish and berries.
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.
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.
