If the Philips AmbiLux TV stole my heart with its audacious projected immersive lighting tech, the batshit-crazy ASUS ROG GX700 water-cooled gaming laptop has had the same effect for me but in a laptop. This thing is an absolute beast.
Why send this tandoori lamb chop to space when it can be in my belly? I don't know, but Nikesh Shukla and Nick Hearne thought it was a good idea to put it in a weather balloon and film its flight to the stars—or at least 25,000 kilometers up there.

Leave it to the Italians to take something as utilitarian as base jumping and turn it into an elegant fashion cat walk, starting with the gorgeous/crazy Roberta Mancino base jumping in high heels and a sequin dress. From the description:
Deadspin readers say this ridiculously funny skit—starring Saturday Night Live comedian Jason Sudeikis as an American football coach sent to manage an European football team—should get made into a full movie starring him and Will Ferrell. They're right.

After going to the dentist, Vader feels weird. Vader feels funny. Vader doesn't feel tired. Vader is high. But from the medicine, kids.
It looks like Street View caught God on camera. Apparently, El Goderino is on a road trip to LA and he stopped at Hartsburg, Illinois, to give the world a much-needed hug. [Google-Thanks Rob]
If you thought Humanity was damned after watching the latest BigDog quadruped robot, prepare to loot the nearest supermarket and run for the hills, because this video of the beta version of BigDog will leave you in awe. And probably make you wet your pants like some of the best Monty Python skits. Peter Furia (who I…
