I want this hoverboard hoax to be real so badly, because I am a living human being with feelings. Unfortunately, it is most assuredly is not real despite the numerous celebrity endorsements and relatively elaborate website. But what does it all mean? I don't know, but I'm guessing it's viral marketing for something Back to the Future coming our way.
Apparently there is a positive aspect to drones (besides their ability to deliver useless things to lazy people.) The technology offers a surprisingly noninvasive way to capture footage of wildlife—such as this insane video of a DOLPHIN STAMPEDE. Watch to the end for bonus baby humpbacks.
Words are weird, guys. Like, you take a bunch of symbols that have all been assigned random sounds and meanings, and then you put them together and everyone is just supposed to know what you're talking about? So it's no surprise that some people are behind when it comes to technology words, and a recent study revealed just that.
Lechal shoes are a perfect demonstration that wearable technology isn't just for Google Glass elite—these miraculous smartshoes will help the visually impaired navigate city streets for fifty dollars or less (smartphone not included...
It's no secret that we're major fans of the upcoming Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey on Fox and National Geographic. If you're as pumped as we are for the premiere on Sunday night at 9pm EST, then you should definitely park yourself in front of your computer at 9pm EST tonight to catch a livestream with the series' creators.
News has been slowly developing on the upcoming Gotham TV show, and it's quickly sounding like a Batman-themed version of Smallville, which is just fine with me. Now we know that Gotham's young hero, though, is a bit younger than Clark was in that show, because the series has finally cast its 12 year-old Bruce Wayne.
The reality is that planning a huge worldwide tournament like Street Fighter would be a logistical nightmare. At least, that's the premise of the Street Fighter: Red Tape sketches from The Pete Holmes Show. This time around, Pete explains to Vega why he can't use his claoughw. Er, sorry. Claw..
Do you have revolutionary political views (GIVE PEACE A CHANCE) or a budding relationship you want to commemorate for all time? New graffiti sections on the Great Wall of China now allow you to immortalize your genius for as long as the monument may stand. No pressure.
Kids are expensive. Food. Clothes. Toys. $80,000 Facebook updates. That last one's not all that common, but it happened to one father/daughter team in Miami when an update from the daughter cost her father an $80,000 lawsuit settlem...
Retired astronaut Commander Chris Hadfield is pretty much the greatest, and now he and Team Coco are using his vast body of astronaut knowledge to clear up any misconceptions people may have about space. And also mustaches. Space and mustaches, and the relationship thereof, which Hadfield is an expert on.
It's hard for humans to understand how the universe began, because it all started from a point where the laws of the universe as we know it and the measurements we use to understand it break down. This animation will help you get a better handle on the the parts of the Big Bang that we can currently explain.
Y'all, it's Mardi Gras. If you can't remember a time it was warm enough to take your top off, it may be hard to sympathize with revelers in Louisiana searching right now for a place to legally relieve their overtaxed bladders. Thankfully, there's an app for those lucky sons of bitches. Or should I say, an a pp? (pee joke, plebs.)
Imagine: you're sitting at home watching news about the Russian Occupation of Crimea, and you're confused. These nations are so far away! Who can you trust to report the conflict fairly? How about an action star who believes himself to be a reincarnated Tibetan lama? Yeah, he seems trustworthy, right?
Geekosystem HQ is mid-move so our regular podcasting setup is in a box at the moment. I set up a makeshift home studio with a borrowed mixer (thanks, Jason) and used it to record a great interview with the GE Global Marketing Director Linda Boff to talk about our upcoming event at SXSW.
If you like the word "indestructible" combined with "virus," then I'm assuming you're a supervillain with a great collection of Hazmat suits. National Geographic is reporting that scientists have just revived a large, ancient virus from permafrost in Siberia. Oh yes, another upside to global warming: increased risk of exposure to dormant pathogens.
Finally, Rocksteady, the studio behind the first two Arkham games, is coming back to the series with the next entry announced today, Batman: Arkham Knight. They're coming back in style, too, with an all new Batmobile which seems to draw heavy inspiration from "The Tumbler" in the Dark Knight movies.
Mark Zuckerberg isn't happy with a paltry 1.23 billion people using Facebook. No, he needs everyone else to get on board, but residents of developing countries have a difficult time acquiring and affording Internet access. So, he's going to solve that problem the same way we seem to solve every problem now: drones.
In case knowing the name of your Domino's Delivery person wasn't enough future for you, Pizza Hut might elevate their dine-in experience with touchscreens. Yesterday the chain's youtube channel released a concept video showing young, hip customers spinning pizza and playing games on an "Interactive Concept Table" like a couple of personal pan DJs.
Aaron Paul sadly go-karted his way into the Top Gear record books. It's Grammar Day. Sony is giving Santa Claus a reboot, and a baby leads a workout routine in today's Geekolinks!
Jimmy Fallon and The Roots have covered a number of songs with classroom instruments while crammed into a dressing room on Late Night, and I'm glad to see it's continuing on The Tonight Show as well. Here they are with Idina Menzel to perform "Let It Go" from Frozen.
