We Come Together (Music Video)

We Come Together (Music Video)

This music video for Goldfish is full of win. Not only does it have an awesome retro video game motif, the tune is totally groovin’. See if you can spot all the pop culture and gaming references in the clip.

Rejected Star Wars Products

Rejected Star Wars Products

Back in the day, product designer Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and his co-workers had the opportunity to pitch over 100 Star Wars collectible concepts for Pepsi. We think they should have ALL been made.

Adult-Size Green Machine

Adult-Size Green Machine

Parker Brothers built this grown-up version of the fat-tire kids’ trike, The Green Machine. It steers from the rear like the original, but this one has an 80-cubic inch Harley-Davidson engine.

Burning Truck Hero

Burning Truck Hero

You’ve got to hand it to Engin Koçak, who has the brass cojones to jump into a flaming tanker truck, driving it away from storage tanks filled with gas, averting a major explosion and likely saving lives.

R/C Paintball Robot

R/C Paintball Robot

Want an R/C robot that could fire paintballs at your enemies? Support this kickass Kickstarter project, and you could end up with your own weapon of paint destruction from roboticist Chris Rogers.

The Skin Gun

The Skin Gun

While it looks like something from a science fiction movie, this new technology can be used to literally spray new skin onto the body of a burn victim, using their own stem cells. (Not for the squeamish.)

Google Earth Engine

Google Earth Engine

Google Earth plus Wayback Machine equals Earth Engine. The new technology stores historical and daily satellite imagery and data to allow scientists to observe planetary changes over time.

Cupcake Customizer

Cupcake Customizer

Create the cupcake of your wildest dreams thanks to Baked by Melissa’s cupcake customizer. You’ll need to order at least 300 of the tasty cakes if you want some, but you’re hungry, right?

Flying Shark

Flying Shark

While we wish this thing were the size of an actual airplane, this remote-controlled flying shark-plane is still pretty damned awesome. Head-mounted laser beam not included.

LEGO Han Solo

LEGO Han Solo

Ok, this is one of the coolest LEGO creations we’ve ever seen. It’s a brick-by-brick rendition of Han Solo’s famous frozen-in-carbonite scene from Empire Strikes Back. From the recent NYCC ’10.

X-Wing Mailbox

X-Wing Mailbox

Wouldn’t it be nice to live in a neighborhood where an awesome X-Wing fighter mailbox like this one wouldn’t be vandalized or flat out stolen by punks? For us urban dwellers, we’ll admire it from afar.

Burnt Toast Mona Lisa

Burnt Toast Mona Lisa

The fact that an artist named “Toastman” has been making giant artworks out of burnt toast for the last 10 years is awesome enough, but his latest, da Vinci’s classic, is a true masterpiece (of toast).

Shark Rex

Shark Rex

Hector Lopez‘ illustration combines three of our favorite things, sharks, giant dinosaurs, and robots. This thing needs to be made real, or at least turned into a movie on the SyFy channel.

Turtle’s Eye View

Turtle’s Eye View

What happens when you strap a waterproof digital camcorder to the back of a turtle? 2 minutes, 4 seconds of pure awesome, that’s what. And we thought turtles lived slow, boring lives.

Underwater Base Jumping

Underwater Base Jumping

Hold your breath for 4 minutes, and watch this unreal clip of freediver Gillaume Nery, as he jumps head first into Dean’s Blue Hole, the deepest blue hole on the planet. (Note: Fiction, but still cool).

The 10,000th Post

The 10,000th Post

Whoa. We can hardly believe it either. In just under 2 years, we’ve managed to fill the universe with 10,000 things. Since it takes two to tango, many thanks for actually reading what we post.
