That’s like a misanthrope’s wet dream and you can enjoy it everyday by using Dogfish Head Beer Soap, a cleansing bar made from beer, ground hops and barley. Not just any beer, mind you.

  • Plum Island Could Be Your Dream Mad Scientist Lab

    Plum Island Could Be Your Dream Mad Scientist Lab

    Once a top secret biological weapons lab, Plum Island has been the subject of multiple references in novels and film. The home of the US government’s Animal Disease Center for over 50 years, operations on the base off the eastern end of Long Island’s North Fork coast has since been decommissioned, duly replaced with a new facility in Kansas.  As such, you just might be able to buy it. Aside from the former government lab, the island is also home [...]

    BearVault Protects Your Food From Hungry Woodland Creatures

    Your packed food is delicious. When you’re camping or hiking, though, don’t advertise it to the local wildlife, lest you want to incur a visit from hungry animals looking for an easy meal. How to do that? Keep your grub inside the BearVault BV500, a durable food container that locks in scents (so animals don’t smell it) and protects your food with a bear-proof locking mechanism. In the container’s history, it’s only ever been defeated by one bear (i.e. the [...]

  • Bullet 580 Brings Back The Blimp… And It’s Huge

    Bullet 580 Brings Back The Blimp… And It’s Huge

    Blimps are back. Well, not really. But something inside me wants them to be when I saw 21st Century Airships’ Bullet 580, now officially the world’s largest blimp ever. Offering a more cost-effective alternative to fixed-wing aircrafts, the airship can stay at high altitudes (up to 20,000 feet) for extended periods at lower costs. Coupled with large cargo capacity and heavy lift (up to 2,000 lbs of payload on the outer envelope), it allows for plenty of applications in science [...]

    Banish Your Phobias With Augmented Reality

    Most augmented reality software center around commercial and recreational applications. In fact, it’s gotten to a point where it feels a bit…too much. An article featured on the journal “Cyberpsychology, Behavior, and Social Networking,” however, gives hope that the platform might pave the way to helping people overcome their deep-seated fears. In the study, six female participants with an aversion to cockroaches were fitted with AR helmets carrying a camera onboard. The software added simulated images of the dirty insects [...]

    Airplanes With A Balcony…What?!?

    Airplanes with a balcony – that’s the striking new feature in two luxury concepts from DesignQ and BAE Systems. They call it Air Decks, a viewing platform where passengers can step out of their stuffy seats and enjoy the open air. Hopefully, while the plane is on the ground. Otherwise, I hope you took out life insurance. Created for Avro Business Jet, the two concept planes consist of the Explorer One and Explorer Four, which the companies purport to be [...]

No problem. Simply pour some of the spicy liquid on your sunny side ups to enjoy a full “bacon and egg drenched in hot sauce” breakfast. Word of warning, though: spicy foods can [...]

    EC145 Mercedes-Benz Style Helicopter Can Seat Eight People In Luxury

    I’ve never ridden a helicopter before, but I’ve seen plenty of movies with people flying in one. Flying comfortably in a bladed airfarer always looked no more snug than sitting on the passenger seat of a regular sedan. Well, not with the EC145 Mercedes-Benz Style, a luxury helicopter designed to transport passengers in lavish style. Developed in a partnership between Mercedes-Benz and Eurocopter, the aircraft features a cabin layout inspired by the former’s new R-Class range of sportscars. The cabin [...]

    PasswordCard Hides Your Passwords In A Coded Cheatsheet

    I hate random passwords, especially complex ones with capitalizations, numbers and symbols. Not only are they difficult to type, they’re almost impossible to remember. But security risks have made it so that you either choose an obscure combination or risk getting your accounts hacked into. The solution? Use complex passwords and write them down. Of course, that means if that place you keep the passwords in get stolen (such as a notebook or a mobile phone), you run yourself at [...]

    Pepsi Encourages Recycling With Dream Machine Kiosks

    Pepsi is putting out new kiosks. Instead of dispensing soda like regular vending machines, though, the Pepsi Dream Machine is meant to collect bottles and cans for on-the-go recycling. Done in partnership with Waste Management, the computerized bin is designed to make for a convenient place to dump used soda containers, providing on-the-go recycling facilities to regular consumers. Each can or bottle you drop in is recorded, with redeemable reward points (probably for more Pepsi) doled out for your troubles. [...]

  • Hello Russia: Boat With Giant Chainsaw

    Hello Russia: Boat With Giant Chainsaw

    If Russia threatened America with a giant chainsaw during the Cold War instead of nuclear bombs, every nation would have totally supported starting World War III. Of course, the US had to respond with the threat of giant clawhammers or it wouldn’t have worked. Imagine the movies we’d be making about that now, especially if Japan joined the fray and unleashed one of the secret robots we always knew they’ve been hiding under the streets of Tokyo. The 10-foot chainsaw [...]

    Why waste a perfectly good exploding volcano when you can use it for a little rest and recreation? These two certainly didn’t, choosing to take the opportunity to partake in a romantic meal – cooked in steaming hot lava rocks. Thrillseekers flocked to the Fimmvorduhals volcano in the middle of the Eyjafjallajokull glacier in Iceland when it began eruptions last March 21st. We pay good money to watch disaster movies, after all, so why not make the trek to experience [...]
