It's About Time: Glow In The Dark Lingerie~

LuminoGlow is an Australian company that makes unmentionables that look normal with the lights on, but glow in the dark when they're turned off. Pretty neat, but don't glow in the dark items need to be left in the light for a while before they glow? Are you supposed to wear these around the house all day first just to charge them up before gametime at night? And will they glow through your clothes if you wear a thin shirt or dress?~

Larger than life "Lego Mario" replica is the largest ever ~

his guy created a whooping 5-foot, 9-inches tall gigantic Mario replica, the largest ever, that weighs in over 110 pounds and furthermore-amazingly- he finished it all in “LEGO-bricks.” Now, that’s some Mario. Named, the ‘Lego Mario’, this replica is pieced together with F-O-U-R-T-Y thousand Lego bricks. Phew! Didn’t he ever lose count? Well, 5′9″ may not seem so tall, but ‘it’ is ginormous comparatively, if you consider a few inches tall Mario, who’s jumpin’ around and squishing those little turtle-monsters. You still have a chance to prove your unparalleled passion for Mario, as this Lego Mario is up for auction~

No Beach For Me: 'Monster' Great White Almost Bites Smaller Great White In Half~

'It certainly opened up my eyes. I mean the shark that was caught is a substantial shark in itself,' says Jeff Krause of Queensland Fisheries. The great white, the most dangerous creature in the sea, was still alive when hauled onto a boat near Deadman's Beach off north Stradbroke island. 'Whatever attacked and took chunks out of this big shark must be massive,' said 19-year-old surfer Ashton Smith. 'I've heard about the big one that's lurking out there somewhere~

New 3-D Star Wars film trilogy coming?~

I have been hearing rumblings ... extremely quiet at first, but now heating up significantly and from a trusted source—that George Lucas is preparing to unleash another STAR WARS trilogy upon us, this time in stereoscopic 3D. This is NOT the TV series, these are brand spankin' new 3D STAR WARS movies~

Yes, the pending 2D to 3D conversions of his six existing STAR WARS properties are still a go as 3D theaters are approaching 3000 (5000 is the number Lucas wants). No word on when this work will be completed. ...

Lucas will be producing and NOT directing these new episodes apparently! Could Steven Spielberg be tapped to direct a STAR WARS movie after all? Yes according to a trusted source of mine! Further, Francis Ford Coppola was mentioned too as a possible director for a future film!~

Surfacescapes Demo Walkthrough from Surfacescapes on Vimeo.

Say hello to Michael. He's one of the developers on the Surfacesapes project over at Carnegie Mellon University, and he's about to walk you through just about the best use for Microsoft's Surface multitouch table in the video above~

Oh, what's said "best use," you ask? Why, recreating the Dungeons and Dragons tabletop experience, of course! It's still a work in progress, but so far they've got everything from modeled pieces (such as the Dire Wolf you'll see), spell effects (such as the massive explosion that takes out the aforementioned Dire Wolf), and tons of nice touches, from the terrain to the ambient, outdoor sound effects~

This capsule-shaped fireplace will look great in my Martian home~

There's just something about any design flying the Electrolux banner — they all look like they belong in space. That's not a bad thing, though, and this portable fireplace by designer Camillo Vanacore is certainly no exception. Its capsule-like housing features a special ceramic that becomes transparent when heated (so the fire will reveal itself once started), and its small size means that you could carry it around with you around the house and enjoy a fire anywhere. Well, one that won't burn down your abode~

Camillo Vanacore's design is just a concept at this time. It may not bring back that nostalgia of a good ol' fashioned wood-burning fire, but you won't have to spend all that time in the backyard chopping logs, either~

tetris’d turns tetris into a platformer~

When most of us think of Tetris, we think of puzzle games. But this new variant of the classic brick-stacking puzzler isn’t about that. You see, Tetris’D is a platform game. Huh, wha?~

The objective of Kobra Editing’s little Flash game Tetris’D is simple. Blocks fall from the sky just like they do in the original ‘tris, except instead of controlling the blocks, you move a little stick-figure dude who’s about to be crushed by them-thar falling blocks. You can move and jump over bricks, and with enough practice, you can even wall jump while you’re moving through the air. All you’ve got to do is stay alive without being smooshed or falling off of the platform. But don’t let the simple premise fool you. This game will seriously kick your ass when you first pick it up~

Wanna give a shot? Jump on over to StickPage and get to some Tetris’D platform’n now’n~

Wait, Whaaaaat?: Large Hardron Collider Trying To Destroy Itself From The Future~

According to a couple nutjobs that I'm actually starting to believe, the Large Hadron Collider is actually destroying itself FROM THE FUTURE to prevent the discovery of the Higgs boson particle. Whoa~

According to the Times, two physicists posit that the reason that the Large Hadron Collider (and, previously, its unbuilt American counterpart) keeps running into problems isn't bad luck or shoddy workmanship. It's that the LHC's quest to discover the Higgs boson--a heretofore only theorized particle that scientists believe is what gives objects mass--is creating problems to keep itself from being discovered:

"A pair of otherwise distinguished physicists have suggested that the hypothesized Higgs boson, which physicists hope to produce with the collider, might be so abhorrent to nature that its creation would ripple backward through time and stop the collider before it could make one, like a time traveler who goes back in time to kill his grandfather."~

Except it was just you, and the other kids would start laughing. But not with you, AT you. And then the tears would start to fall. I just wanted to fit in so bad!~

Wearable Hummingbird Feeder~

This is wild! It’s the :–2<: Wearable Hummingbird Feeder. That’s pronounced “Eye to Eye” Wearable Hummingbird Feeder, btw. It’s basically a mask with a specially designed feeding tube. Hummingbirds come up and feed from the tube right between your eyes. You are literally face to face with hummingbirds. The mask is made from a clear professional grade fully adjustable full face face shield. The mask is painted and an image of red rhododendrons is attached behind it to attract the birds~

To use it, you have to leave it out for a while without wearing it, so the hummingbirds discover and become used to it. Then you can wear it and have them feed right in front of your face. They say it’s an adrenaline rush and the birds sound very different up close. The inventor believes that with enough time, the birds will become so accustomed to it that it could be used without the flower image so the mask is completely clear~

Wii Cyberbike: roadtrip to nowhere~

I guess the whole point of the Nintendo Wii is to get you off your ass. This latest Wii accessory/game keeps you on your butt, but you still get to move. Sort of. It's the Cyberbike from Bigben Interactive, a European game accessory company. The Cyberbike is a full-size stationary bike - from its looks, not really Gold's Gym quality, but rather lightweight home basement quality. Pedal all you want, and you'll always wind up where you started — talk about an exercise in futility~

By pedaling, you get a workout. Two thumbs up for that. But since that's insanely boring, the Cyberbike lets you save the planet. The bundled game takes you through imaginary scenes where you mop up pollution. When the planet is all rainbows and sparkles again, you can also plug the bike into Mario Kart Wii~

The Cyberbike will be available in Europe in January '10. Pricing not announced, but it's probably more expensive than an actual bicycle~

Square Enix Eplains Why Manga Sales in America Suck~

Kouji Taguchi, the head of Square Enix’s manga division, was recently asked why manga sales in America pretty much suck when compared to sales in Japan. He replied by saying:

“The best sellers in the US were Full Metal Alchemist and Naruto, but these only sold a tenth to a twentieth of what they sold in Japan~

I think the main reasons are as follows:

1. Fewer copies are printed and those that are get sold at a much higher price, from $8.99 to $12.99~

2. Children don’t get as much money, their allowances are just smaller~

3. The other reason is location. If you live in Tokyo there will be 3 bookshops nearby, which you can easily cycle to. In the US there aren’t any, they can only buy on a weekly trip to the mall. Even if anime is highly popular, they just don’t visit the stores to buy manga often.”

It’s interesting that piracy wasn’t brought up~

Think about it, some manga series take up to a year to make their way over to the states. Instead of waiting for U.S. licensing deals and distribution, most hardcore otaku are just reading scanlations on sites like where english translations are uploaded within 24 hours after a chapter is released in Japan~

playable nes console built into an nes cartridge [casemod]~

The first time I saw an NES gaming system built into an NES cartridge, I thought it was pretty sweet. Until I saw this one, which totally outdoes the original. Inspired by an earlier NESp (Ninendo Entertainment System portable) mod by darkeru, modder airz managed to put a completely playable game system, including a 2.8-inch LCD screen and original NES controller buttons into an old Super Mario Bros./Duck Hunt combo cartridge. The broken off cartridge connector board at the bottom is nice touch, too~

Now, you may ask how he fit an entire NES inside a cartridge – the answer is simple – airz’ NESp isn’t a real Nintendo console. It’s actually one of those cheap Chinese PMPs that happens to be able to emulate NES games. But that doesn’t make it any less cool in my book. The way I figure it, that just means that he doesn’t need to carry around a bunch of other cartridges to play games. It can also play Game Boy and Game Boy Color games as an added bonus. And movies, MP3s and even receives FM radio to boot. Airz even preserved the portable’s video-out port so he can play games on a television too~
