  • Cockroach + cockroach house = disgusting keychain holder

    You know when a country, in this case Japan, is over-saturated with gadgets when it produces things like this: a keychain holder that features a plushy cockroach living in its own mini house [JP]. Read More

  • Gross Panasonic remote recalls Cronenberg's "Existenz"


    This very strange-looking Panasonic remote reminds me of the computers they stroke in Existenz. I couldn’t find the clip, so here’s where Jude law finds a bone-gun in his soup. The idea of this remote is, I believe, that it remains flaccid, lambent with a pulsating light, until touched — at which point it becomes firm and functional. It wouldn’t be half so suggestive… Read More

  • Not iPhone: Cardboard toilet doubles as a sturdy stool

    Here’s a cardboard toilet. It’s called the Shit Box. I’m happy that it appears to only be available in the UK, brought to you by The Brown Corporation (get it?). The outfit’s tagline is “a solid company” (get it?). Each box comes packed flat at 14-inches square and there are 10 “poo bags” included. It also doubles as a stool – a stool… Read More

  • Think you're a big man? Prove it and get an EYEBALL TATTOO


    Bodymodding isn’t really in the CG purview usually (I don’t even like the word bodymod) but we felt compelled to report this. A Mr. Pauly Unstoppable decided to have the white part of his eye changed to blue. I’m not sure if there’s an easy way to do this, but getting over 40 injections of blue ink into your freaking eyeball can’t be it. Somehow I don’t… Read More

  • Hands on with Fujitsu's vein-scanning mouse

    This is totally gross. I was walking by the Fujitsu booth when I saw the vein-scanning PalmSecure mouse that uses the veins in your hand to log you into a PC. I figured it wouldn’t look that bad — like a fingerprint at worst — so I asked the guy to run the demo for me. He placed his hand over the mouse for a few seconds and then his vein scan popped up… Read More

  • Q: Pizza Vending Machine — Pinnacle of Civilization or Depths or Depravity? (A: Both)

    , there is a line between easy and greasy, and we’re afraid the Pizza Vending Machine has crossed it. On the surface, it’s a fine concept: pop in a few bucks, and 2 or 3 minutes later, you’ve got a piping hot pie with the toppings of your choice. But how good could a 3-minute pizza really be? We’re guessing not at all. Even the cheap-o stuff we fill our bachelor pads… Read More

  • Stain Detector Helps Detect Grody, Invisible Stains

    While it’s being marketed as a tool to help you find hidden stains so you can make your pad smell better, we know it’s really so you can all play CSI at home. The Stain Detector Light uses the same UV technology that the detectives use to find “protein stains”, blood, bile, or, uh, what-have-you. Wanna scare someone? Visit them in their hotel room with this thing pointed… Read More
