    Someone Turned Star Wars’ “Walking Carpet” Into An Actual Carpet With The Chewbacca Rug

    Sure, a bear skin rug looks great and all, but if you’re an absolute Star Wars fanboy, we have a feeling you’re doing your home a disservice.  Why?  Because there’s no point in decking your floors with a bear skin carpet when one that’s made from Wookie fur, like this Chewbacca Rug, is available. That’s right, somebody kidnapped the “walking carpets” from the jungle planet of Kashyyk (yes, it’s also the home of the Kardashians… I think) and turned their […]

    Elevator Out Of Service? Just Use These Gecko-Like Hand Pads To Climb To The Office

    Over a decade ago, scientists discovered how geckos are actually able to plant their feet onto vertical surfaces.  Since then, there’s been no shortage of attempts to recreate that dry adhesive mechanism, which exploits van der Waals forces to adhere to anything that’s even remotely smooth.  A new hand pad created by Stanford University researchers just might prove to be the most promising of those attempts.

    These Clever Powerlace Shoes Can Tie Its Own Laces Without Motors Or Batteries

    To be honest, I never really cared if we ever get the self-lacing shoes Marty McFly rocked in Back to the Future (even though Nike promised it for next year) – I always considered the feature a novelty, at best.  Seeing these Powerlace Auto-Lacing Sneakers, however, made me want to change my mind.  The whole thing just seems so convenient. Rather than require batteries like we always imagined self-lacing footwear will do, this one relies on a clever mechanical system […]

    Around the age you have kids, you’re probably well past the inclination to trick out your car with a gaudy light show and monster speakers right out of that old MTV show, Pimp My Ride.   We doubt you’re well past seeing your son’s ride-on car tricked out the same way, though, and that’s why this Kia Soul Sing-A-Long Car exists.

    Clever 3D Notepad Art Is Actually 2D Art On A Fake Notepad

    At first glance, these pieces look like someone was able to figure out how to emboss figures onto a lined notepad, turning out sculpted images on a simple sheet of paper in the process.  Except it really isn’t and that illusion is part of what makes 15-year old Brazilian artist João Carvalho’s works quite impressive. One, he doesn’t actually do the art on lined notepads.  Instead, he does them on regular sketch pads that he lines much later to look like […]

    Floyd Utility Set Lets You Quickly Build Heavy-Duty Tables With Cross Bracings

    While the Floyd Legs can help you quickly build a sturdy writing table, it lacks the support structure necessary to let you fashion a heavy-duty workbench or dining table all on its own.  That’s why they created the Floyd Utility Set, an industrial version that you can use to build sturdier tables. It doesn’t depart too much from what made the original Floyd Legs great.  You still get four legs that you can easily clamp onto an old door, an […]

    Cement is one of the most important construction materials.  That’s why we produce a ton of it.  That’s also why 5% of all man-made emissions actually come from cement production.  Yeah, it’s incredibly polluting.  Problem is, we can’t really get away from cement, considering we need it to build a whole lot of structures, from our roads to our buildings to our homes to our ultra-tough ping pong tables.  At least, not until we find a more eco-friendly alternative.  That’s […]

    With the PS4 and Xbox One both embracing an x86 architecture, we’re likely going to see a lot more cross-platform games that push PC graphics performance to insane levels.  And when you’re going to deal with that level of crazy, you’ll need an equally crazy graphics card to handle it.  Well, this Gigabyte GV-N980X3WA-4GD looks about as insane as graphics hardware can get.

    What Would Superman, Iron Man And Captain America Wear If They Were Born In Renaissance-Era? Must See Pics!!!

    If modern-day superheroes and sci-fi characters wore costumes that were appropriate during the Renaissance, turns out they’ll still look way cool.  At least, that’s the case with Sacha Goldberger’s Super Flemish collection of photographs, which documents a series of Renaissance-themed cosplay that just blows the mind. These images, which look like Renaissance-era paintings, aren’t Photoshopped, by the way.  Instead, these are actual unaltered photographs, with all the elaborate work performed (likely, by a team of stylists, hairdressers, make-up artists, models, […]

    If you ever played with your erasers in grade school, pretending they were die-cast race cars that had wheels, you were probably not alone.  Those things just made sense for playing as pretend cars.   These E-Racers still aren’t die-cast cars, but they do have wheels, so kids can race them without even having to pretend that the erasers can actually move on their own. Even better, the erasers actually look like regular erasers instead of being shaped like a car.  […]
