A giant rubber band ball? So much fun. Just slice the thing open and you’ll see it quickly grow and explode up and basically find the monster that wants to unleash itself from its rubber ball prison. Once its cut open, the sound is also interesting to listen to. You can hear the slow movement that the bands are making…
Every four years there is a new World Cup ball and players have to adapt to its new behavior due to changes on its aerodynamic properties. Players hated the 2010 ball—Jabulani—for its unpredictable moves. Has the new 2014 ball—Brazuca—solved these problems? NASA has the answer.
For as deliciously rewarding as canning your own fruits and vegetables can be, the actual canning process isn't all candied rainbows and Martha Stewart smiles; it involves a fair amount of hard work.

Winter is coming and you'd better be prepared. The delectably sweet fruits and vegetables in season right now will be shriveled husks rotting in your crisper drawer by the time the snows come.

Old tennis balls may not be able to bounce around the court, but they can be incredibly handy around the house. Here are eleven second acts for the Wilsons. Just give the balls a chance.
Augmented reality is interesting, but that technology is way over-used in navigation and point-of-interest apps. That's why it's so refreshing to see a game like Ball Invasion and developers like 13th Lab who use AR in a new and exciting way.

A pair of former Boeing engineers are building an escape pod that would let people ride out the worst of a Tsunami inside a giant ball. The Tsunami capsules could hit the market in two years with a price tag as low as $1000.
Ahh, alarm clocks. They are modern-day torture devices designed to interrupt a peaceful slumber. Some make it difficult like Tocky which runs away when it goes off. Others like the classic Mr. Bump help you vent your frustration at having to get up so early.
There's something that's oddly hypnotic about watching this hand-cranked machine slice, drop and catch these small spherical rare earth magnets one at a time.

If you thought dropping Snooki was weird, you haven't seen the rest of America. Some cities drop really weird things on New Years Eve. How weird? How about bologna, sausage, a drag queen, a bag of chips and a possum?
