Skateboarding Tricks in Super Slow-Mo

We’re back! We know, it’s been awhile… we missed you, too. Here’s something that’s been making the rounds lately that we had to post. Cool skateboarding tricks filmed at 1000 fps! I leave being able to do this kind of thing to pros (which is why I learned my lesson by trying to skateboard and […]

Yes! Want! You too can live out your medieval/D&D/Lord Of The Rings fantasies with this R/C-controlled flying dragon. Just like an airplane, you can fly it around your neighborhood and your neighbors won’t get freaked out. Right? Here’s the dragon flying: And here’s the dragon breathing fire:






Mario Kart On Exercise Bike

I’d last about a minute on this thing – mostly because I love to play Mario Kart drunk (Oh, believe it. I have my Nintendo 64 at home), but I also need to work on, you know, being in shape. But this guy rigged an exercise bike to play Super Mario Kart. When he pedals, […]

Water and flames and stuff. It was designed by the folks to did the Bellagio fountains in Las Vegas. Mormon joke, something something.






We’ve Always Been Bored With Te...

original




This comic from 100 years ago is actually more prescient than most people are today. Which just goes to show, maybe our great-grandparents were bored with, like, gramophones and cars before we became bored with iPods and smartphones. Kids today, eh? It actually reminds me of this bit that Louis CK talked about on Conan, […]






BMX DJ

I know, the title probably sounds like it’s some pirate radio dude from some tiny town in the UK. But seriously: a bike-sharing service in Japan called COGOO put together a video a BMX trickster riding a bike that’s hacked to DJ software. They mounted a gyroscopic sensor on the bike and it sends signals […]
