The Steampunk Stormtrooper Helmet~

The awesome Steampunk Stormtrooper Helmet by Brian Rood~
"The steampunk stormtrooper helmet is made by Brain Rood. Obviously, it can be seen from the blog of the creator that he is a lover of stormtrooper helmet. You can see many unique modifications of stormtrooper helmet from Star Wars. But I prefer the latest one, which has a bronze appearance with many steampunk accessories, which make the helmet look like from post-holocaust instead of outer space~

Oil And Antifreeze: New 'Iron Man' Cologne~

Diesel, looking for a way to cash in on the upcoming Iron Man sequel, decided cologne was the way to go. It wasn't, Diesel (aluminum foil pants). Also, why's the bottle shaped like Iron Man holding his member?~

Diesel's hoping you'll splash a little of this beneath your breastplate before donning your armor (or climbing into your office cubicle, whatever the case may be) in celebration of "the season's most daring, fearless, courageous hero."~

And, with any luck, the scent (which remains unchanged), with its "top notes of lemon blossom, mandarin and coriander leaves, a heart of labdanum, black rose and lavender, and a dry down of amber, tolu wood and ebony wood" will find olfactory favor with Pepper Potts over in accounting~

Holy shit, Iron Man smells like a woman. Not even a hint of motor oil or missile residue? You outta be ashamed, Iron Man. And not just because I have a video of you trying to procreate with a vending machine, but I do and I'm not above blackmailing. Or panhandling. QUARTERS OR I'LL CUT YOU~

Give your cooking the Midas touch with edible gold paint~

Getting kids to eat food that's good for them is never easy, but what if those Brussels sprouts actually looked like solid gold nuggets? That's the thinking behind Esslack, an edible food paint from Germany. You simply spray it onto whatever chow you want add some bling to, and it suddenly looks like a gilded table decoration. Of course you'll probably want an equally fancy table to complete the look~

Available in both silver and gold, this looks like a great idea if you have fussy kids, even though the effect might not work more than once~

Paying Girls To Play Video Games With You~

Want to play video games with a girl but don't know any in real life? Well you're in luck, thanks to a new online service called GameCrush. For a minimum wage-y $6.60 you can play 10 minutes of XBox Live with a scantily clad strumpet via webcam. Pathetic~

Girls somehow interested in this should know there's money to be made, with 60% of the proceeds from a match going to the "PlayDate", who at the conclusion of a game can be rated by the user on her "hotness, gaming skill, and flirtiness"~

GameCrush is restricted to those 18 years old and over, and players can select one of two kinds of match/date. I'll let the site's FAQ explain. "We have created two broad categories, "Flirty" and "Dirty" to help the PlayDate define and match her mood of gaming interaction and experience with those of the players. You can choose either option or both depending on how you feel!"~

Wow, that's so shameful I don't even know what to say. Mind if I borrow $7?~

Lingerie Beer Cans by RAMM~

This beer can may appear innocent on its own, but join two together and that innocence is replaced by sexy lingerie. The Lingerie Beer Cans by RAMM show a city scene with factories and smoke, but when joined with another can a leggy pair of lingerie is shown. This design is easily one of the most inventive packaging designs I’ve seen in years~

Ummm..ok : Japanese Chip Commercial~

This is a Japanese commercial for Calbee ear-shaped chips. I have no idea what the hell's happening, but it appears to be a love triangle between a boy, girl, and anthropomorphic circus dog. Which, now that I think about it, makes perfect sense for a Japanese chip commercial~

Sikker baby monitor warns you if baby gets sick~

Baby monitors have been around for decades, but the only thing most of them can do is let you know if the kid starts crying. He may look peaceful lying there in the crib, but what if your kid is actually sick?

The Sikker baby monitor is designed give parents a much better idea of how the baby is doing. Both baby and parent wear bracelets, which communicate via a wireless base station. In addition to letting you hear what's going on, you can see basic biometric information like the baby's temperature, and even talk to the baby or play music by remote~

This all sounds cool, but I wonder if having a Wi-Fi transmitter right on your newborn's wrist is such a good idea~

City Lights Earth Globe~

The Cool City Lights Earth Globe($50), because this globe can show both daytime and nighttime simultaneously, and and the globe itself rotates. Beautiful!
The City Lights Globe effectively captures the ethereal beauty that befalls the cities around the globe at night, as darkness fills the skies and the buildings and streets respond by lighting up the surface. If you’ve ever sat at a vantage point, overlooking a city skyline at dusk, you know what this experience is like and, if not, then the City Lights Globe is the perfect chance for you to witness the way the earth lights up at night~

Mutant!: Rare All-Black King Penguin Spotted~

National Geographic photographer Andrew Evans recently spotted this rare color mutation of a King Penguin on the island of South Georgia, near Alabama Antarctica. Apparently the all-black coloration is unheard of in penguin's coats~

Melanism is merely the dark pigmentation of skin, fur -- or in this case, feathers. The unique trait derives from increased melanin in the body. Genes may play a role, but so might other factors. While melanism is common in many different animal species (e.g., Washington D.C. is famous for its melanistic squirrels), the trait is extremely rare in penguins. All-black penguins are so rare there is practically no research on the subject -- biologists guess that perhaps one in every quarter million of penguins shows evidence of at least partial melanism, whereas the penguin we saw appears to be almost entirely (if not entirely) melanistic~

Demon-Spawn, Burn It With Fire!: Woman Has 3-Inch Horn Growing Out Of Her Damn Head~

A 101-year-old woman in China has baffled doctors after growing a huge goat-like horn on her forehead~

"[At first] we didn't pay too much attention to it," said Mrs Zhang's youngest son Zhang Guozheng~

Cutaneous horns are made up of keratin -- the protein found in fingernails -- and are typically seen in elderly people who have had prolonged exposure to sunlight~

"Now something is also growing on the right side of her forehead -- it's quite possible that it's another horn."~

Dude if she grows a horn on the other side there's no way in hell(!) you can tell me she's not demon-spawn. Shoot, even with just the one I'm convinced. Now, start collecting dry branches~

BK Fans answer back : The BK Noah's Ark: Two Of Every Kind Of Patty From Burger King (Plus Bacon Strips!)

You won't actually find the Noah's Ark burger on any BK menu, but only because the king must have a thing against deliciousness. Or, I dunno, 10,000 calorie menu items. Whatever the case, the Noah's Ark burger consists of two of every kind of patty BK has to offer: beef, veggie, chicken and fish, plus bacon. Can you say dangerously delicious?! I can, it's spelled H-E-A-R-T A-T-T-A-C-K. damn I want one. But with more cheese. CHEESE NOAH NEEDS MORE CHEESE~

Secret McDonald's Menu Items: The Mc10:35~

The Mc10:35 isn't actually a secret McDonald's menu item because you have to buy two separate sandwiches and put them together yourself. However, it is rare and dangerously delicious looking~

I heard about this from a cashier at one of the local McDonald's. He said it's getting kind of a cult following in San Francisco~

1. Go to McD's right when they are transitioning from breakfast to lunch~

2. Order one of the remaining Egg McMuffins from the breakfast menu and also order a McDouble since the lunch menu is now open~

3. Take the egg and Canadian bacon from the Egg McMuffin and put it on the McDouble~

The guy at the register said people call it a Mc10:35 because that's pretty much the only time you can pull this off~

Awesomely Confusing Oblique Clock~

Oblique Clock by Tristan Zimmermann from mocoloco on Vimeo.

As much a kinetic sculpture as it is a timepiece, the Oblique Clock reinterprets the hands of a traditional analog clock, adding extra geometry and structure that results in a constantly changing design as it ticks away the minutes throughout the day. And to make it as mysterious looking as possible, the custom engineered mechanical elements that drive the clock are hidden behind a rather large frame, leaving no question that this is first and foremost an art piece~

There’s a few examples of how you actually read the time using the clock, and from what I can tell you mostly want to pay attention to the darker brown hands since the lighter colored pieces will just confuse you. To fully appreciate the clock’s movements, I highly recommend taking a few seconds to watch the video where you can see it in motion~

And there’s good news for those of you who feel you must have one of these for your home or office. The Oblique Clock is being produced in a very limited run of just 20 pieces, and one of them can be yours for just $3,900 CAD~

Well It's About Frickin' Time: Commercial Jetpack Hitting The Market For $75,000~

We've already heard about Martin's jetpack several times in the past, and now, finally, they're going into production -- and for $25K less than previously expected. Oh -- oh God -- JETBONER!~

The Martin Aircraft Company jetpacks have about 200 HP coming out of their dual propellers. They can go up to 1.5 miles [high] in the air and reach speeds of 60 mph. They will aim to make about 500 packs a year~

These jetpacks were invented by Glenn Martin, who unveiled his prototype last year in July. This whole contraption weighs less than 254 lbs, so in the UK, you won't need a pilot's license to travel in it. It is capable of traveling 30 miles with a full tank of fuel~

OMG I'm finally gonna fly! Probably straight into power lines, BUT THAT'S A RISK YOU TAKE WHEN YOU'RE A MODERN AMELIA EARHART. So, what will you all pay me $75K to do? I'll do anything. Except that. Or that. Ooooooor that. Jesus you people are sick. I'm digging it. No, no I'm not, but I am filing a restraining order~

Brings A Tear To My Eye: Three Guys Create 100,000 Keystroke Move-By-Move Script So A Blind Gamer Can Beat Ocarina Of Time~

Jordan Verner is blind. And he posted a few videos of himself playing through parts of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time on Youtube. But he wanted more, he wanted to beat the whole game. Thankfully, Roy Williams saw his videos.

Through Skype, Jordan said he asked for help in completing the entire game -- help that he didn't seriously expect.

So Williams and thee other diehard gamers each took different parts and copied down every single move. "Every time we make a move, we roll, jump, do anything, we type down on the computer exactly what we're doing," said Williams.

Verner would then take the script and have his computer read it to him as he played.

An average gamer will take about a week to play through the entire thing, but this project took almost 2 years and more than 100,000 keystrokes. Finally, Jordan beat the entire thing.

"I felt great," said Jordan. "I felt strong. I felt like the sky's the limit."

"Our school's motto -- and I live by it -- is the impossible is only the untried," said Jordan~

First of all, HOW THE F*** DID YOU GET PAST THE WATER TEMPLE?! And secondly, is that not the most beautiful thing you've ever heard? Because it is to me~

"I have always loved time-lapse footage, and films like Koyaanisqatsi especially, which allow you to look at human spaces in different ways, and draw comparisons between patterns at differing scales. I also really liked the tilt-shift look of making large scenes feel small, and wanted to make a film using this technique with New York as its subject. "
