  • Rock Band Drum Cake makes for a delicious peripheral

    Yum, who’s hungry for Rock Band Drum Cake?! The icing on the cake (pun intended!) is that this life-size delicacy actually sits atop an actual Rock Band drum kit stand. The 12-year-old who received this cake on his recent birthday apparently had a spare stand sitting around after he pummeled a previous set of drums to death and had to replace them. The whole setup almost looks too good… Read More

  • Back to School: Wide World of Ramen


    So you’re moving away from the dorms and their plentiful buffet-style meals. It’s a big step, I know, and you’ll have to do some adjusting. Cooking for yourself can be a rewarding experience, and you may discover that you have a knack for it, or enjoy the process as much as the results. But the first steps can be daunting, so focus on the basics. It’s not exactly… Read More

  • HotCans: Self-heating canned food

    The end is near, my friends. Please observe self-heating canned food. Ready to eat in about 12 minutes, you can choose between Beef Casserole, Vegetable Chili, and Sausages and Beans. Apparently via some sort of “safe exothermic reaction” these “HotCans” become self-aware somehow. Or heat themselves up. Same basic difference — they might as well be self-aware. Read More

  • Ramen robot makes 800 bowls a day – that's almost enough for me

    In a development being hailed as “the greatest single step forward ever taken by civilization,” Japan has made a pair of wise-cracking robot arms that make and deploy up to 800 perfect bowls of ramen per day. Yes, we saw one like this back in July, but this is a whole other level. It’s like Wall-E vs. the talking toaster from Red Dwarf (admittedly, a solid robot). These… Read More

  • Nixie Tubes: Like Pixy Stix with caffeine

  • EZGrill: The $5 single-use grill

    I live on the top floor of a third-floor walkup with no balcony in the middle of Boston. That doesn’t mean I don’t like grilling, though. Granted, I can’t really grill nor do I have any use for a grill, but maybe someday I’ll want to grill somewhere else. What? Now I have to buy a grill? What the hell do I need a grill for if I’m only going to use it once or twice… Read More

  • The 'Go Plate' facilitates outdoor food and beverage enjoyment

  • PSA: Tomorrow is National Donut Day

    Tomorrow is National Donut Day. I love donuts. I feel no personal shame. Donuts and my body mesh well together. If I had an ideal food, it would be donuts. If you like donuts even half as much as I do, you’ll be happy to know that you can get a free donut at Dunkin’ Donuts and/or Krispy Kreme tomorrow. I’m sure you’ll be able to get other deals at your local donut shops… Read More

  • BBQ Sword: Swashbuckling meets Deliciousness and has a baby named Fun

    I know what you’re thinking: $20 is far too much for a skewer. And normally I’d agree with you, except that this skewer is called the “Swashbuckling BBQ Sword” and features a handsome fencing grip. Read More

  • DIY: Brick pizza oven for under $50

    Since the dawn of time, the quest for perfect homemade pizza has broken many a soul. Can roughly $50 worth of materials and a DIY brick oven-like housing change all that? I honestly don’t know. But if you’ve got a little extra time on your hands and fancy yourself a decently-talented pizza enthusiast then by all means, chase the dream. Read More
