    Embler Flying Saucer Prototype Should Attract Even More UFO Sightings

    Unmanned aerial vehicles take all sorts of shapes and forms, from nondescript bug-like robots to stealth gliders.  Ones decked out like flying saucers, though, just have that special appeal that makes everyone take notice. A new British company called Aesir recently showed off their first prototype that borrows a leaf from erstwhile alien spacecrafts.  Called the Embler, the unmanned vehicle is designed to make use of the Coanda Effect, where air speeds up as it attaches itself to a well-shaped [...]

  • Get Naked Bikini Dissolves In Water….Score!

    Get Naked Bikini Dissolves In Water….Score!

    Water-soluble fabric used to be such a bad idea.  Who the hell will pay good money for clothes that will dissolve when you sweat on it?  Apparently, some badly-burned boyfriends, that’s who. Shamelessly marketed as a way for guys to get back at their ex-girlfriends, Get Naked Bikini, a water-soluble set of top and bottom swimwear, is possibly the most brilliant use for the technology.  Like the description suggests, the two-piece outfit will disappear just three minutes after being submerged [...]

    Carbon Fibre Gorilla Tube iPhone 3G Case

    I am beginning to wonder if there is any limit whatsoever to the number of gadgets, memorabilia and accessories that will be released for the iPhone. If it isn’t flashing lights and hi tech hands free kits, it’s games or all sorts of applications from translators to driving and walking mapping and directions and pretty much anything else you can think of. Yes, it seems there’s a whole lot of love for the Apple iPhone and whole lot of money [...]

  • ZeroEdge Aquarium Turns Your Fish Tank Into An Infinity Pool

    ZeroEdge Aquarium Turns Your Fish Tank Into An Infinity Pool

    Infinity edge pools are quite a sight to look at.  If you love that design, it’s possible your fish might enjoy it too.  At least, that’s what the ZeroEdge Aquarium seems to be going for, incorporating the sexy edgeless aesthetic into a fully-functional fish tank. Like infinity pools, the water spills over off the edge of the glass tank, right down into enlarged gutters that recycle the water back into the aquarium.  It creates a visually-stunning effect that’s unlike any [...]

    Ukraine Building Gets A 100-Foot Crossword Puzzle That Solves Itself

    “I live over at the giant crossword puzzle.”   I’m assuming that’s what the residents of this building in Lvov, Ukraine tell people when asked where they’re staying.  With a large crossword puzzle installed on the side of the structure, it’s one address no one’s about to get wrong. Crossword addicts will probably shiver, excited at the sight.  Unfortunately, they’ll just end up in fits, as you’ll have to scale that sheer wall if you plan on filling up those blank [...]

    Beer In A Box: Coming To A Convenience Store Near You

    Draft beer fans all over the US will finally get their wishes fulfilled – beer from the tap, right in the comfort of your home.  That is, if MillerCoors pushes through with their plans of selling the new “beer in a box” nationwide. Beer sales, as it turns out, are down this year.  When business is slow, companies get creative, for better or for worse.  Looking to tap (pun intended) into those 30% of beer drinkers (yep, I can’t believe [...]

    Scorpion EXO-900 Can Transform Into Three Different Helmets

    Why buy separate full face, flip front modular and three-quarters helmets, when you can get one that transforms into all three?  The Scorpion EXO-900 can easily be reconfigured into either one of those motorcycle headwear, affording you the convenience of a single accessory, without scrimping on function. Even though we’d rather see everyone sporting full-face helmets in the interest of safety, we all know people are just plain too hard-headed for that.  Some score a three-quarters model, claiming they’re only [...]

    Archos 9PCtablet

    Netbooks seem to be the in thing with those who do not require all the power of a laptop but who want to be able to access the internet on a portable device quickly, easily and, most importantly, cheaply. I have noticed a growing trend in people who ordinarily use a fairly high powered desktop purchasing a netbook to act a secondary computer, as opposed to buying a laptop or notebook. However, Archos are challenging the position of the netbook [...]

    Wi-Fi Detector Cap

    Wi-Fi signals in public places are the absolute gift of Gods of technology, a gift bestowed lovingly unto self confessed geeks, computer nerds and technology addicts… and perhaps even the closet ones too. The Wi-Fi symbol is becoming known and loved by the internet fiends who trawl city centres looking for venues displaying its loving logo, welcoming them for coffee and free surfing. But is that logo so great that you’d wear it? Think Geek seems to think so. Their [...]

    The Green Hornet’s Black Beauty Will Ride Again

    The on-again, off-again Green Hornet movie with Seth Rogen is apparently a lock once more. To go with the large screen reboot of the famed TV series will be a new edition of the Black Beauty, the masked hero’s signature ride, shown here from photos at last week’s Comic Con. Staying faithful to the original Beauty, the silver screen version appears to be built off a similar Imperial Crown 4-door hardtop. The guys at Autoblog are guessing it’s the same [...]
