Interesting: The Batman Vs. Superman Batmobile

last weekOdd : Geekologie

Note: Higher-res version HERE. This is a shot posted by Zack Snyder of the new Batmobile from the upcoming Batman Vs. Superman movie. As you can see, it looks like one of Michael Bay's Transformers. That sucks too because I bet a friend they were going to bring back the style of the Batmobile from the 1960's television show. Show More Summary

last weekOdd : Geekologie

With the help of that weirdo that turned his dead cat into a quadrocopter, Dutch youngster Pepeijn Bruins now has a tri-copter created with the stuffed body of his beloved pet rat, Ratjetoe. Me? I would have just buried him...in an ancient Indian burial ground and brought him back to life. Pepeijn said: "I loved him very much. Show More Summary

last weekOdd : Geekologie

These are several examples of the collaborative work between 2-year old Eve and her mother Ruth. Eve begins the artistic process with some doodling, then Ruth comes in and adds watercolor. The results, well-- "THEY BELONG IN A MUSEUM." Dammit Indy, not everything belongs in a museum. Show More Summary

German Sets New Beer-Carrying Record w/ 27 Liter Mugs

last weekOdd : Geekologie

This is a video of German waiter Oliver Struempfel carrying 27 one-liter mugs 40-meters to clench the world record for beer carrying. Impressive, but I once rolled a keg into a friend's house SINGLE-HANDED. Well, I used both hands, but I did it all by myself. Show More Summary

Photoshopper Turns Standing Cat Into BATTLE CAT

last weekOdd : Geekologie

This is the fake, shadows are all wrong Photoshop job of a standing cat transformed into a medieval battle cat. That look in his eyes -- you can tell he's out for blood. Or maybe he's just out to eat a bunch of grass then throw up in the house later. Show More Summary

Giant Bounce House Slide Rolling Down The Beach Set To The Katamari Damacy Theme

last weekOdd : Geekologie

Wait -- is that lady topless? This is a shaky-ass video of a giant bounce house slide rolling down the beach clobbering everything it touches. Plus somebody added the theme song from Katamari Damacy to really spice it up. That was a nice touch. The way my roommate touched me last night? That was a bad touch. Technically a stabbing. Hit the jump for the video.

Heck Yeah I'd Drink With Wolverine And Deadpool: Conceptual Superhero/Antihero Themed Beers

last weekOdd : Geekologie

This is The Comic Book Super Drunk Hangout, a line of conceptual superhero/antihero themed beers imagined by Brazilian artist Butcher Billy. You know, I brewed my own beer once. Everyone who tried it got sick. "You did it wrong." No,...Show More Summary

BRING IT: Stephen Hawking Says Higgs Boson Research Could Destroy The Universe

last weekOdd : Geekologie

In news that makes me wish I was smart enough to conduct the research myself, Stephen Hawking is claiming that experimenting with the Higgs Boson particle could create a "catastrophic vacuum decay" and destroy the entire universe. I, for one, would like to see that happen. Show More Summary

Thanks, Internet!: DuckTales Opening w/ Real Baby Ducks

last weekOdd : Geekologie

Because apparently it's turning into an impromptu animal day on Geekologie, here's the opening to DuckTales recreated with real ducks. I love ducks. When I was growing up my mom used to take me and my brother to the pond to feed bread to the ducks. Show More Summary

Handcuff It To Me: Beer Briefcase Carries 6 Beers In Style

last weekOdd : Geekologie

This is the Beer Briefcase available from Perpetual Kid ($45, although you could make your own out of any briefcase and some foam padding). It holds six beers. It doesn't cool them or anything, it just keeps them well protected. Although if you show up at my place with this thing and you'll probably get asked to leave. Show More Summary

Makes Sense: Guinea Pig With Leather Steampunk Wings

last weekOdd : Geekologie

This is Pulguinha, the Steampunk Guinea Pig. He's wearing a pair of leather and brass wings courtesy of SkyPirate Creations. Nice cooling fan. So, how much time do you think animals that can't fly THINK about flying? My guess is a lot. Show More Summary

Good Lookin': 3-Year Old Gets Prosthetic Iron Man Hand

last weekOdd : Geekologie

This is a video of Hawaiian boy Bubba and his new Iron Man hand. Bubba was born without most of his right hand, and just had a custom one 3-D printed for him at no cost thanks to a nonprofit called E-Nable. Hmmm.... Hello, E-Nable? Yes,...Show More Summary

Where Have You Been All My Life?: A Tiny Hamster Exploring His Tiny Mansion

last weekOdd : Geekologie

This is a worthwhile video of a tiny hamster exploring his mansion and getting ready for work (read: eating breakfast four times) in the morning before zooming off in his car. It's pretty much the exact reason the internet exists. "The internet was made for p0rn." DON'T SAY THAT. Show More Summary

Flashing Flux Capacitor USB Car Charger A Reality

last weekOdd : Geekologie

Originally a ThinkGeek April Fools' product, the company will be selling real Flux Capacitor USB Car Chargers later this month for $25. The unit has two USB ports, each capable of providing 2.1-amps to charge your electronics. Hmm, that sounds like a far cry from the 1.21-jiggowatts needed to power an ACTUAL flux capacitor.

World Of Warcraft's In-Game Tribute To Robin Williams

last weekOdd : Geekologie

These are several shots and a video of World of Warcraft's in-game tributes to the late Robin Williams. There's a genie that comes out of a lamp when you rub it and says, "INFINITE COSMIC POWER! Itty bitty living space," as well as Mork's crashed egg spaceship and some toys scattered around (a head-nod to Williams' role in Toys). Show More Summary

last weekOdd : Geekologie

"Hooooooly smokin' Toledos." This is the video shot by Philip McNamara off the cost of Papua New Guinea of Mount Tavurvu erupting with a shockwave that sends all the nearby clouds running for cover. God, what I would have given to have been sitting on top of that thing when it erupted. Show More Summary

Spider Photobombs Girls' Selfies, Brings Me Great Joy

last weekOdd : Geekologie

This is the progression of photos (GIF of them after the jump) documenting the moment two girls in bed taking selfies realize they're not alone. It brought me great joy. I don't know why people freak out about spiders so much. Where do you think the bites you wake up in the morning came from? I find spiders in my bed all the time. Show More Summary

last weekOdd : Geekologie

This is a video of violinist Taylor Davis dressed as Link and performing the Legend of Zelda's Kokiri Forest theme while wandering around in the woods. You know, sometimes I think about packing up all my things and moving into the woods. Show More Summary
