  • Crazy Guitar Hero Christmas lights mod

    What do you get when you mix Christmas lights, massively intelligent cubicle dwellers, Python, open source electronics, and a Guitar Hero controller? A crazy light show that I would call one of the coolest things I’ve seen all year. This is what tech is about — having fun with cool stuff without worrying about EULAs. Read More

  • Ha ha work is funny

  • Dave Winer wants to be treated special by Apple, as do we all

    Dave Winer goes into into an Apple store and asked them to replace his hard drive out of warranty. They sold him 80 GB for $160 and then told you that he couldn’t have his old drive back. And he’s upset. Let it be said that while I don’t agree that Apple stores should “treat you different,” it is a pretty shitty policy. When you go to a mechanic they give you… Read More

  • Tired of viral marketing? Want to punch Judd Apatow?

    http://www2.funnyordie.com/public/flash/fodplayer.swfBacklash on FunnyOrDie.com Don’t worry, you’re not alone. I’m a little disappointed that there’s no slam dunk line like “I’ve got a murder boner!” but viral marketing needs all the beatings we can give it, even if they’re sketch comedy beatings. I’m suspicious, though; I think this… Read More

  • Robots for the railways

    Now that Russia is officially part of the Technocracy, their robot rulers are taking over more and more of the everyday maintenance. Apparently the Russian rail system (Motto: “If it worked in the 1950s, it will still work today.”) has hired robots to do most of the track maintenance and give presentations about the Great Bear’s delightfully archaic railways. Best of all… Read More

  • Super Smash Bros. Brawl intro video

    http://www.gametrailers.com/remote_wrap.php?mid=29155 *Picks jaw up off the floor and changes boxers. I grew up playing the NES and my favorite game other than Tetris was this robot baseball game, which I’m unwilling to Google at the moment, but after the NES I didn’t really touch any consoles for a few years. I jumped to the Sega Genesis and rocked Sonic like no one’s… Read More

  • The guy from Once reviews IR helicopters: I know, WTF, right?

    http://p.castfire.com/Xu7m0/video/4413/bbtv_2007-12-20-220803.flv Not sure what Glen Hansard is doing reviewing wee little helicopters, but lets hope he finds love and affection in his new job as BoingBoing’s gadget reviewer. via BB Read More

  • Unboxing the OLPC: Couples therapy

    Dear Foreign Couple in this Video: This is the OLPC. For you to read the instructions and wonder what this “does” and hoot in mad-eyed wonder when you see a colored man on the screen makes me puke a little. You should be able to turn this thing on and make it work, mostly because it’s made for kids who have probably never touched a computer in their lives. Your failure hurts… Read More

  • Blogger speed dating: Worse than watching ocelots mate

    Here’s the problem with blogging: you feel you can say anything but you’re still a nerd at heart so you get some kind of weird nerd confidence and come off as just a freak. Take this video, for example. Speeddate.com and Meebo got together to offer blogger speed dating and the results are horrifying. via TC Read More

  • Asus Eee Pc gets a touchy-feely makeover

    Apparently adding a touchscreen feature to your Eee is as easy as adding a panel between the screen and housing and then soldering some stuff to some other stuff. You wanna know what I like about this mod? You can’t even tell that it’s there.  Asus Eee Pc with touch screen [jkkmobile] Read More

  • Paramount, MTV forego theaters stream "Jackass 2.5"

    This is starting to get interesting. First Radiohead released “In Rainbows” Online, then Saul Williams released the Trent Reznor produced “The Inevitable Rise and Liberation of Niggy Tardust.” Now it seems that movie studios are, at least to some degree, following suit. While filming “Jackass 2,” the crew apparently created enough content for two entire films. Read More

  • Duke Nukem Forever, releasing whenever, trailer now however

    http://www.crunchgear.com/video/player.swf?movie=DNF.flv What can I say that hasn’t been already said every year since 1997? How about that Duke Nukem should probably be investigated for steroid use? In any case, the teaser trailer for the long-awaited game is live at Shack News. I’m not sure if they’re taking a tip from San Andreas and including pumping iron in the game… Read More

  • The real Paper Mario

    http://www.dailymotion.com/swf/x3sq7a&related=0 Joel likes to think of these sorts of things as hobbies, which I’m inclined to agree with in regards to LEGOs but this is too much. I prefer this video anyway. Read More

  • Make your own Vibrobot

    It’s winter. Days are shorter, your mind is wandering, and you need a little robot made out of a toothbrush head and a pager motor. Put down the booze, get a hacksaw, and start building something. The rest of the condo board with thank you now that you’re not yelling at your neighbors through the grating in your attic. HOW TO – Make a Bristlebot a tiny directional vibrobot… Read More

  • Seiko Memory Bank Calendar Watch

    Absolutely unforgettable. I remember when I got my first memory bank watch. It had a number of little alarm tunes, including Happy Birthday. I played it on my own birthday when I was eleven and they even turned on the light for me and gave me a piece of cake. I hold no ill will towards my captors. via Watchismo Read More

  • A de-Lane Hartwell-ized Bubble video for your edification

    So here’s the reworked version of the Richter Scales “Bubble” without an image by Lane Hartwell hidden cleverly inside. My opinion, if you care, is that she shouldn’t put her stuff on Flickr if she doesn’t want it to be ganked. And, as Scoble wrote: “I think it really is lame to take pictures of people (who don’t get a cut of the profits) at… Read More

  • University of Manitoba holds funeral for mainframe

    The University of Manitoba recently held a funeral for its 47-year old IBM 650 mainframe — four people had to carry the almost 2,000-pound computer as Amazing Grace played in the background. This video is pretty funny and it’s my opinion that all your favorite technology items should receive similar ceremonies. How to really bury a mainframe [NetworkWorld] via Slashdot Read More

  • Teutonic toilet seats can be a buzzkill

    http://www.ifilm.com/efp If we learn anything from foreign — this one is German — commercials it’s that a) foreign girls are hot b) ad agencies overseas couldn’t give two poops about the Moral Majority. But seriously: at what point in your clubbing career do you do blow off of a toilet seat. Video: Swedish German Self-Cleaning Ruins Cokehead’s Evening [BBG] Read More
