There are nice surprises on ChatRoulette, after all. Take ChatRoulette for a spin and you might stumble on Merton, who instead of brandishing his organ, shows off his piano instead, bursting out meta-tunes about his chat mate with all the charm of  Ed Helms, Ben Folds, and Flight of the Conchords.

Street Fighter Rap: Balrog’S Stories
I can’t believe I didn’t know about Turbo T. Double until today, when the bbps‘ Dan Zuccarelli posted the “music video” for one of Turbo T. Double’s songs, which is about Balrog’s take on Chun-Li. Yes, it’s a dude rapping as Balrog who’s talking about Chun-Li.

Batman Raps About the Plot Holes in the Dark Knight

Batman Raps About the Plot Holes in the Dark Knight
No, it’s not Christian Bale rapping, thank god. It’s the work of the satirical and parodistic folks at the Key of Awesome, and they do have valid questions. Plus the characters’ voices were spot on. Still, some of you may be tempted to ask: Plot holes?

LG 2010 Plasma, LCD and LED Tv Line Leaked on Fcc Website
I was buzzing around over on the FCC website today looking at some recent filings, when what did I come upon but a virtual goldmine of spanking new flat-panel displays on the way from LG in early 2010. From the looks of this manual, as well as a number of devices recently submitted on the site, LG plans on a major refresh of their display line, with 21 new display models mentioned on the front cover, along with a couple of others I managed to scrounge up.

Keita Watanabe, Ph.D., and Shota Matsuda of Japan’s Keio University have won a couple of awards for their crazy, yet somehow logical concept for a microwave. Called the Castoven, it eschews the transparent glass panel typically seen on microwave ovens in place of a 10.4-inch

Panasonic Dmp-B15, World’S First Portable Blu-ray Player : is It Worth $800?

Panasonic Dmp-B15, World’S First Portable Blu-ray Player : is It Worth $800?
Digital Trends have reviewed Panasonic’s DMP-B15, The world’s first portable Blu-ray player. So is it worth the $800 USD price tag? Well, the player does get a 7 (out of 10 I guess), but after reading the review my short answer has to be NO. I’m not saying that Digital Trends’ review was biased or anything.

The World’S Most (Face) Shocking Videos

The World’S Most (Face) Shocking Videos
What do you get when you take four of your closest friends, attach electrodes to their faces, and then fire off small jolts of electricity to the beats of electronica? Video genius, I say. Tokyo electronic artist / programmer / composer /DJ Daito Manabe connected each of his four friends to the business-end of his “Face Visualizer” device, which shoots computer-controlled myoelectric charges through the wires.

Advertise With This Gorilla Robot
When I first heard there was a business called Gorilla Robot Factory, I assumed they’d be some sort of hipster design company, a recording studio, or maybe some Web 3.0 startup. I never figured that they’d actually make gorilla robots.

The Latest in Hamster-Based Video Game Technology

The Latest in Hamster-Based Video Game Technology
I’m not sure how I missed this great video clip when it first hit the Inter-tubes. Maybe I was too busy playing video games. The clip involves a hamster shimmying his way through a maze of dark jagged tunnels in search of an exit (and no, Richard Gere had nothing to do with this). All I know for sure is that the video is titled Kubbur á hlaupum and was made by some guy(s) in Iceland, and that he/she/they is/are (a) filmmaking genius(es).
