Here's some fun you can have at home with little to no effort: make a mini crossbow from a bottle cap, two popsicle sticks and a rubber band. You can fire off flaming arrows, toothpicks, skewers, Q-tips and more with just your thumb.
There's no governing body proclaiming this the world's smallest crossbow, but it's only slightly larger than a full-sized crossbow arrow so it's got to be up there. Joerg designed this crossbow to be safe. The arrow is fully encapsulated so it won't accidentally shoot off in an unexpected direction. You cock the…
I don't care who you're voting for this November, this digital rendering of a lightsaber-wielding, lion-mounted Obama — created by digit artist Jason Heuser — is hands down
the most badass thing we've seen today.
Videos of semi-terrified kids having their teeth yanked by others in crazy ways are a dime a dozen. That's why we love this fearless and adorable kid who yanks his own tooth with a Nerf bow. Nice technique, baller kid! [via Wimp]
Our appreciation for bald, vaguely Eastern European, totally insane slingshot purveyor Joerg Sprave is long-established and unbounded. And he apparently loves his fans right back, if this extremely dangerous, reasonably-sized death-by-wood-and-rubber contraption is any indication.
Getting shot in the face with nearly anything other than pixie dust or a Super Soaker usually brings about a pretty swift death. Not so for English teen Lewis Tavernier, who put a bolt into his skull by accident. Whoops!
If you happen across a giant bald man of some vague Eastern European provenance wearing a blue ESPRIT t-shirt, do not provoke him. Because chances are he is carrying on his person the most ridiculous weapon of the modern age: the crossbow machete. Don't try this at home, or outside, or anywhere, ever. [Geekologie]
Okay the combination of this guy and this weapon scares the crap out of me. It's as if the scary neighbor from Home Alone was crossbow-obsessed and got himself a Lego Mindstorms kit.
Hunting will get a lot more interesting next month when PSE releases their TAC-15 crossbow. It mounts directly on a AR-15 rifle, allowing you to swap between both weapons with minimal tinkering.
One man's LEGO is another man's treasure, and what better way is there to guard your grand stash of colored bricks than by using the bricks themselves as a weapon? The Thriller Automatic and Thriller Compact are slide action crossbow pistols with cocking and chambering mechanisms that are almost completely made out…
We have seen our fair share of Wii peripherals, but the Wii Crossbow actually looks like it could be used by police officials to take down the bad guys. Sure, the ping pong ball tip doesn't look too menacing, but we're sure there's a razor sharp arrow underneath.
If you can believe the video, it looks like the Asus LS201 LCD monitor is not only scratch-proof, but marker-proor, knife-proof, hammer-proof and crossbow-proof. According to Asus, this Jack Bauer of displays can resist anything thanks to a sapphire glass surface that protects its 1,400x1,050-pixel 20-inch LCD. They…
You saw the first impressions of Windows Mobile 6—the OS that's going to be running on just about all Windows-based smartphones from here on out, but here's what it looks like on video. A Microsoft exec shows you the meat of what's going on with WM6.
Compared to the product renders we saw in December, the official i-Mate JAQ4 looks quite a bit better. It's straighter, squarer, and blacker—a transformation not seen since Steve Urkel drank Boss Sauce and turned into Stefan Urquelle.
