DEEEER Simulator

DEEEER Simulator

Described as a “Slow-life town destruction game,” DEEEER Simulator invites players to frolic about for a leisurely stroll or wreak havoc and destroy the place. After watching the trailer, we still have no idea what’s going on, but we need to play this. Coming to PlayStation, Xbox, and Switch. It’s on Steam Early Access for PC too.

EEEAAAOOO

EEEAAAOOO

We started the 2010s with Nyan Cat, and now we can kick off a new decade with another rainbow-dispersing musical kitty, courtesy of animator MyF*ckinMess, musician Patricia Taxxon, and vocalist Bert Gotrax, who only exists in digital form. Can’t get enough? Try the 10-hour loop version.

Blazing HEEET Cinnamon Vodka

Blazing HEEET Cinnamon Vodka

A welcome alternative to cinnamon-flavored whiskeys, naturally-flavored Blazing HEEET has a much more neutral base flavor, offering up a hot and slightly sweet taste just like a red hot candy. Try it solo, or with a little Applejack for a cinnamon apple treat.

Meeting a Wolf Eeel

Meeting a Wolf Eeel

After his encounter with squirrely squid, Steve Backshall meets up with a gnarly looking eel. We love how he says “please don’t take my fingers off” as he puts them right in front of its mouth.

Images have surfaced of a new ASUS Eee PC encased in a gorgeous aluminum body. The striking compact PC was selected for this year’s reddot design award, and should ship later this year.

Asus EeeTop ET2010 PC

This all-in-one PC has a slim body that’s less than 1-inch thick, and sports a bright 20″ 1600×900 display with an HDMI input. Grab the “T” models if you want an optical multi-touch display.

Eee PC 1008HA

Eee PC 1008HA

Asus’ 10″ Eee PC 1008HA is a netbook in a sleek form factor clearly inspired by the MacBook Air; specs: 1″ thick, 2.4 lbs, Atom 1.6GHz CPU, Windows XP, 1GB RAM and 160GB HDD.

Eee Keyboard/Mouse

Eee Keyboard/Mouse

If you like the tactile feel of scissor switch keys, Acer is gearing up to release an Eee-branded wireless keyboard + mouse combo, with a minimalist look that matches the Eee well.

Asus’ Eee PC 1002HA is their mid-range “style” netbook, with a brushed aluminum case, Atom N270 CPU, 1 GB RAM and 160 GB HDD. The two-cell battery seems weak, but lasts 5 hours.

Asus Eee Top

Asus Eee Top

Like their Eee notebooks and PCs, Asus’ Atom powered Eee Top is not a powerful system. However, its clean, all-in-one form factor and touchscreen LCD make it an ideal second PC.

Asus’ Eee PC 901 has dropped by $100, from $600 to $500; we suspect it’s due to competition from other netbooks, including Dell’s Inspiron Mini 9 and the Acer Inspire One.

Hot Hardware has a review up of the Asus Eee Box B202. Like the Dell Studio Hybrid, however, the Eee Box’s value lies mostly with its small form factor and low power consumption.

Paper-Thin Speaker

Paper-Thin Speaker

Engineers from MIT have developed an incredibly thin and lightweight speaker that flexes like a sheet of paper. The piezoelectric speaker’s volume increases when it comes into contact with other surfaces, so theoretically, it could be used to turn entire walls into immersive, room-size loudspeakers.

Punk But It’s Upstrokes Only

Punk But It’s Upstrokes Only

Hey! Ho! Let’s Go! But only in one direction. Musician Bloxsy imagines what punk rock might sound like in an alternative universe where guitars and basses could only be played with upstrokes. He’s also tested how punk rock sounds with EEEEEE tuning, and if the intro to The Beatles’ Helter Skelter never stopped descending.

Heavy Metal Hog Calling

Heavy Metal Hog Calling

Soooooooo-weee! Bang your head! Andre Antunes is back with another hilarious heavy metal video edit, this time adding an appropriate musical flourish to a hog-calling competition. Seriously, they should have an electric guitar player on stage at every state fair from now on.

60 Songs a Year: 1990 to 1999

60 Songs a Year: 1990 to 1999

After taking on the 1980s with aplomb, The Hood Internet has completed the cycle for the 1990s. Hit play and enjoy this 35-minute playlist of classic hits from nineties hitmakers like Deee-Lite, DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince, No Doubt, Alanis Morissette, Everclear, and Missy Elliott.

Side-by-Side Swing

Side-by-Side Swing

WhistlinDiesel is known for doing really stupid things with cars and trucks. This time, the guys built a 13-foot-tall steel A-frame, then hung a side-by-side ATV by its rear wheel hubs and tried to use it as a swing… we emphasize TRIED. At least they got to do this before they wrecked the RZR.

Ugly Tuning, Great Player

Ugly Tuning, Great Player

Musician Ichika Nito loves to test out unusual guitar tunings. In this case, he came up with a set of notes that sound completely off-key when strummed, but he manages to still make sound good when playing. His EEEEEE and FFFFFF tunes are worth a listen too. (Thanks Craig!)

The Hood Internet: 1990

The Hood Internet: 1990

After wowing us with their awesome 1980s music compilations, the guys from The Hood Internet have kicked off a new decade, this time cramming 60 hits from 1990 into a 3-minute, 30-second medley. From Deee-Lite to Depeche Mode and Pixies to Public Enemy, it’s a fantastic flashback to a fondly-remembered time.

Baymax Takes a Ride

Baymax Takes a Ride

Engineers from Canada’s Laval University Robotics Laboratory show off their motion simulator robot by strapping a Baymax bobblehead to its platform. As you can see in this demo footage, the kinematically redundant parallel mechanism offers incredible flexibility when it comes to positioning its platform.

The Internet in 1996

The Internet in 1996

An awesome time capsule of what life was like on the Internet more than 20 years ago, just as it was starting to take off. If you remember Netscape, dial-up modems, or Excite!, you’ll get a kick out of this old VHS tape. We like he calls URLs “YEEERLS.”

Robot Pulls Airplane

Robot Pulls Airplane

The Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia and Moog Robotics’ HyQReal robot looks a lot like Boston Dynamics’ Spot, but this guy appears to be much stronger. Watch as the hulking quadruped manages to pull a small plane all by itself. But only after an intro sequence befitting a pro wrestler.

Bruce Lee with Lightsabers

Bruce Lee with Lightsabers

Watching the late, great Bruce Lee take on an opponent is already pretty rewarding, but after seeing this image, Patrick Nan decided to amp things up even more, by adding a lightsaber (and lightsaber nunchucks) to a classic martial arts fight sequence from Fist of Fury.

Self-solving Rubik’s Cube

Self-solving Rubik’s Cube

There’s already a robot that can solve a Rubik’s Cube in 0.38 second, but that thing takes up too much space. Thanks to miniaturization, and the smarts of Human Controller, we now have a completely self-contained version. It can only reverse a human’s moves at this point though.

LEGO Voltes V Concept

LEGO Voltes V Concept

LEGO Ideas member baeeee9 made this proposal for an official set of Voltes V, the super robot from the eponymous 1970’s anime. Just like in the cartoon, it consists of five vehicles that can be combined to form the humanoid robot. We love the proposal’s sleek look.
