What would you do if you saw this motorcycle, clearly inspired by Alien vs. Predator roaring down the highway? I think, most drivers would think the world's under an alien invasion, but the truth is, this bike's only the twisted creation of 54-year-old Roongrojna Sangwongprisarn.
That steampunk plasma speaker that popped up earlier today isn't too shabby of a DIY project, but we think we've already found a new steampunk king: Wozniak's Conundrum — a fully functional Mac with a Remington typewriter keyboard from 1897 wired up to its brains and a mouse built from an old Morse Code telegraph key.
We've all heard the adage that "life imitates art," but what about when art — in this case, video games — imitate life? How precise are video game worlds based on real-world locations? Geoff and Jack from AchievementHunters decided to examine nine games depicting NYC's Times Square and the findings will tickle you.
Remember the super intricate paper GameBoy? Well, the papercraft masters Zim & Zou are back, but with six gadgets that'll blast you back into the past. Included in the set is an old-school film Leica with film, brick cellphone, Polaroid camera with instant film, Walkman, cassette tape, NES controller and 2.5-inch floppy disc.
One Russian designer decided simply encrypting the data on his USB flash drive wasn't enough, so he added a physical layer of protection: a five-wheel combination lock.
Home sweet home. Can you still call a four-story home sandwiched between two buildings and ladders instead of a staircase a comfortable home? If you're an artist who's not claustrophobic, you might get a shot at living in this narrow house in Warsaw, Poland.
Let's be honest and admit that most licensed movie products are complete junk. Even more so, is Star Wars merch. If there's anybody who knows how to milk a brand to oblivion, it's George Lucas. Strangely enough, this hair dryer based off of Darth Vader's mask is calling us from a galaxy far far away.
We've been on a camera frenzy lately, lusting after the mini Pentax Q and Olympus E-P3, but neither one can defend itself up against the Frankensteintax, an unholy splice between a Pentax DSLR and a 1917 Series III Kodak 127 camera, that works!
Who knew that the Roomba was such a talented little robot? Having conquered floors around the world and become the choice of transport for babies, the humble little robotic vacuum is moving on to bigger, more artsy aspirations: LED light painting.
There's a reason the iPad is such a successful product. It's not merely because it's so thin, so light, and looks so good you'd lick sugar off of its glass display. It's a hit because "When technology gets out of the way, everything becomes more delightful, even magical." Or at least that's what the iPad TV commercials have us believe. Project Rimino is an exercise in how people can influence the ways technology works for them, instead of conforming to what technology already provides.
