  • Time Wasters: You Can Play Pac-Man In Google Maps Now

    Time Wasters: You Can Play Pac-Man In Google Maps Now
    google-maps-pac-man.gif So you can play Pac-Man in Google Maps right now by scrolling to an area with a lot of streets and clicking the Pac-Man icon in the lower left corner. I just spent thirty minutes eating ghosts in my neighborhood and I wouldn't change it for the world. Now I'm going to go play Grand Theft Auto in real life. If you don't ever hear from me for the rest of the day you can assume I won. Or lost? I probably just fell asleep. Thanks to everyone who sent this, who have collectively spent over 80 hours not working today.
  • Artoo In Love: A Short R2-D2 Love Story

    Artoo In Love: A Short R2-D2 Love Story
    r2d2-in-love.jpg This is Artoo In Love, a worthwhile short about R2-D2 falling in love with a mailbox. It has everything: romance, droids, heartbreak. It does not have pornography though. If you came looking for pornography you came to the wrong place. Keep going for the video.
  • Total Crap: The $850 MacBook Air Inspired Toilet Seat

    Total Crap: The $850 MacBook Air Inspired Toilet Seat
    macbook-air-toilet-seat-1.jpg This is the $850 MacBook Air inspired toilet seat made and sold by design firm Pinkhouse. The cover is laser-cut from 12-guage steel and can be powder-coated to your color preference. For reference, $850 is just about $830 too much to pay for a toilet seat. If all toilet seats cost $850 I wouldn't even have one, I'd just hover. Will I poop on my feet? Probably, but I'll also save myself a fortune. Did I mention the seat is square? The seat is square. Most asses are round. I do know a girl with a square ass though. That is generally not a desirable trait. That girl is me by the way, I've never been asked to a school dance.

    Giant Kinetic Motion Pennyfarthing Big Wheel Bike Thing
    kinetic-motion-pennyfarthing-bike.jpg This is the Boneshaker Big Wheel, the brainchild of Ron Schroer. Pedaling powers a bunch of Theo Jansen kinetic motion sculpture inspired walking legs in the rear that push the bike forward. It is probably not the bike you want to be riding if you're trying to get away from the cops. It is definitely the bike you want to be riding if you're interviewing for a job with a carnival and want to set yourself apart from the rest of the weirdos. Keep going for a video of the thing in action.
  • Guy Remakes Super Mario 64 Level In High Definition

    Guy Remakes Super Mario 64 Level In High Definition
    super-mario-64-high-definition.jpg This is a video demonstration of the Super Mario 64 level (the first level of the game -- Bomb-omb Battlefield) that Unity developer Erik Roystan Ross remade in high definition. He did a fine job, the only problem is that the level is already so bare-bones that it looks kind of ridiculous in high definition. You know what else looks ridiculous in high definition? "Your face." Exactly, that's why I always shake my head so I look blurry in photos and people can't call me ugly. Keep going for the video, and you can play the level in your browser HERE if you want to.

    When we talk about a computer mouse, most of the time it would be one of those peripherals that we are so used to using with one hand in order to manipulate a cursor that we see on screen, so much so that anything else other than this particular design is overlooked. However, surely there is always a new way to do things, right? Enter the $149.99 Mycestro Wearable Mouse, ...
