    This Rilakkuma iPhone Case Has Ears

    I had a beautiful Rilakkuma iPhone case a few months ago but mine did not have ears. I am concerned that I missed out on something special. However, this one costs, inexplicably, $19 when the old version, without ears, cost $12. I'm no economics scientist, but ears don't cost $7. Read More

    The Wild Tale Of A Stolen Laptop In Soho

    Analytics ninja Sean Power lost his laptop in Soho - it was stolen, although it may not have been stolen by the man who had it - and using Prey he was able to track it to a particular bar near City Hall in downtown Manhattan. Sean got some snaps of the guy and his browsing habits and asked that some of his Twitter followers visit the bar to wait for the police. When the police refused to come… Read More

  • Seriously? This Scam Is Still Happening On Ebay?

    Seriously? This Scam Is Still Happening On Ebay?

    I’ve always considered eBay a haven for flim-flam artists, con-men, and fools but this takes the cake. The old scam – basically a fine-print ruse where you’re actually selling a link or a box or something while making it look like you’re selling the real thing – is still alive and well on eBay but now it’s taken a decidedly more commercial turn. These new… Read More

    Pneuborn Robotic Babies Will Claw At Your Dreams

    The store downstairs from your apartment specialized in junk. Its owner was a small man, his face sagging and acne scarred, his front shirt pocket bulging with a pack of Marlboros and his hands always, always fiddling. He died a week ago and his shop has been locked since. At night you hear a baby crying through the floor. A mewling, a squeal, silence for an hour, maybe two. You stare in the near… Read More

  • This Is A Book Xylophone

    Good morning. This is a xylophone made out of books. It’s running on some sort of sequencer connected to little hammers. To ask why this was built would be to ask one too many questions. via Roger Ebert Read More

    WickedLasers Proves It Has A Short Memory With The Double-Handed Sith Laser

    Remember when Lucasfilm sued WickedLasers for using Star Wars imagery in their marketing language? Remember how they got a C&D? Well WickedLasers is doing it again with this wild, double-headed "Sith Lord" blue laser and I'm not sure George will be as understanding this time. Read More

  • Radiator Uses "Quantum Glass" To Heat Your Home

    Radiator Uses "Quantum Glass" To Heat Your Home

    Those of us in cooler climates are familiar with the common hot-water radiator. It’s old-school, but it works. 5.5 Designers have decided they’re too good for wrought iron and steam (or rather their client Saazs has), and have instead put together this insane device, which uses a special coating (creating what they almost certainly mis-describe as “quantum glass”) to… Read More

  • Super Mario Bros. On Ice

    Hells yeah. I would totally watch figure skating if all the routines were related to video games. Halo on ice! Super Smash Bros. on ice! CS_Dust on ice! Having a fine looking lady as the protagonist would help, too. Unfortunately it probably won’t become a trend as Neatorama points out this couple came in second. Read More

    $61,000 Phone Makes Calls, Texts

    Say, for the sake of argument, you’re a minor league baseball player forced to spend $30 million in 30 days in order to get an inheritance of $300 million, but you can’t keep anything you buy. How would you do it? Well, you could start by buying a few hundred of these $61,000 cellphones and give them to homeless people with some SIM cards! That’s right: the Æsir is a gold or… Read More
