The Longest Bicycle in the World

The Longest Bicycle in the World
Check out this ridiculously long bicycle. It was built by Mijil Van Mares Werkploeg, a cycling organization in the Netherlands. They built it specifically to get into the Guinness Book of World Records, and not because they like never being able to park their bike.

Emoji Keyboard: Literal Type Faces

Emoji Keyboard: Literal Type Faces
I’m not much of an emoji user this side of the occasional smiley face. I don’t need a fancy keyboard to use that. My daughter on the other hand likes to text me with long lines of emoji.

Meat Cakes are Japan’s Latest and Greatest Invention

Meat Cakes are Japan’s Latest and Greatest Invention
I like cake as much as the next guy, and birthday cake is especially good. The thing is while I like dessert, I’d certainly rather have a good steak. This is where Japan got creative and has a new thing dubbed “meat cakes.”

Protopiper Prints Tape Tubes for 3D Sketches: Tubeframe

Protopiper Prints Tape Tubes for 3D Sketches: Tubeframe
Handheld 3D printers like the 3Doodler are easy and fun to use, but they’re suited for small sketches. That’s why a group of Hasso Plattner Institut (HPI) students came up with the Protopiper (pdf), a unique tape dispenser.

These Walls Are Crawling with Insect Art

These Walls Are Crawling with Insect Art
There’s something buggy about this room. If your skin isn’t crawling yet, it will be once you see the work of Jennifer Angus. This artist has come up with a unique way to decorate those bright pink walls you see here.

AIG Will Insure Your Drone

AIG Will Insure Your Drone
One time I was out at the racetrack and there was a videographer there filming footage of cars for some TV show. His drone was super fancy and had a high-end video camera underneath it. It went wonky and suddenly climbed to what seemed like a thousand feet and tumbled into the distance.

This Japanese Hotel Is Run by Robots

This Japanese Hotel Is Run by Robots
We all know that Japan is crazy about robots. They have robots to care for the elderly, robots that sell them stuff, robots, robots, robots. All marching along toward the apocalypse where they will be the only beings walking the Earth.

Diego-San Robot Baby Smiles, Learns, Eats Souls

Diego-San Robot Baby Smiles, Learns, Eats Souls
If Hector from Saturn 3 mounted the Atlas robot and had a baby, I think Diego-San is exactly what their love child would look like. It’s intensely creepy with its chubby-cheeked smiling face and mechanical body.

Malcolm in the Middle Gets a Video Game

Malcolm in the Middle Gets a Video Game
Malcolm in the Middle was always such a great TV show. It offered the right blend of quirkiness, cynicism and wit to get me laughing week after week. Though one thing I never thought I’d see was a Malcolm in the Middle video game.

Tempescope: Weather in a Box

Tempescope: Weather in a Box
The weather – it’s that thing that you can easily confirm by looking out the window or literally typing “weather” on Google, yet somehow has a billion apps dedicated to it. There are so many free ways to get a weather forecast that paying $199 (USD) for it sounds insane.

Robotic Dog Launches a Drone from Its Back

Robotic Dog Launches a Drone from Its Back
Well this is terrifying. Every time I think that the mad scientists have given up and gone home I find another monstrosity that they have unleashed upon the world. In this case we have a robot dog who is packing a surprise – drone that it launches from it’s back.

Deadpool Labbit Vinyl Toy: There’s the Beast!

Deadpool Labbit Vinyl Toy: There’s the Beast!
One of the strange things about the Deadpool universe is that the Merc with a Mouth likes to talk to the readers. Breaking the fourth wall is one of the quirks of the series. Another of the quirks is that the Deadpool universe has other Deadpool characters like Dogpool and even Headpool.

Anodos RAL 9000 Robotic Lamp: Luxo Jr.’s Evil Twin

Anodos RAL 9000 Robotic Lamp: Luxo Jr.’s Evil Twin
Back in 2012 we checked out Pinokio, an attempt at making a real version of Pixar’s mascot Luxo Jr. Anodos’ upcoming robotic lamp also appears to have a playful personality, although its name and appearance make it much more creepy.

The Swiss Army Barbie Doll Will Get You Detained by the TSA

The Swiss Army Barbie Doll Will Get You Detained by the TSA
My daughter plays with a mix of toys from Barbies to cars. She doesn’t care if it’s a girl toy or a boy toy, she just wants something cool and fun to play with. She has a bunch of Barbie dolls, but nothing like this Swiss Army Barbie.
