If I’m going to be doing stupid things that risk the health of my various important body parts—and I do, often—I want to make sure I capture those moments so I can relive them later. That’s how I elbowed my way into the action camera beat more than three years ago, and I haven’t looked back.
When Factory released their first Direwolf Puppy plushes, we were wounded innocents still in a post Red Wedding haze. But we've grown up, as has Game of Thrones - and thus, so must the plushie merchandise.
Here's a super clever art installation by artist Markus Raetz. As the two paper chandeliers spin, the light source from behind mimics a ghost head turning its head from side to side. The paper is specifically cut to create the illusion of motion from the invisible head.
This is the Russian cruise ship MV Lyubov Orlova. It disappeared shortly after it left Canada en route to the Dominican Republic, in the Caribbean. Now it has reappeared, floating adrift 2,400 kilometers off the west coast of Ireland.
When we last took a look, the Drift HD came in last in our action camera battlemodo. It had a lot of features that we really liked, but image quality wasn't up to snuff.
There's only two ways to look at this: it's a ghastly looking serpent snaking its way on the red planet, swallowing everything in its path and burrowing itself inside the planet's core. OR it's a gigantic floating sperm looking to impregnate the red egg with hopes of a Martian baby.
Ninjas have been usurped as the number one threat to pirates. The new "Ghost" high-speed attack vessel from Juliet Marine Systems is going to severely f*ck some scallywags up.
At first glance I thought this Ghost Pontiac had just been dressed up in x-ray style decals, but I suppose the clue's in the name. Made in 1939 from plexiglass, it was the US' first transparent car.
Lightpainting requires a certain sort of skill to get the sort of marvellous results we've seen previously, but Croix Gagnon and Frank Schott went the whole nine yards and played an animation of a cross-sectioned human body on a laptop, which they then whizzed through the air and took long-exposure photos of.
Researchers wanted to prove that those who believe in paranormal experience are completely nuts, so they scientifically haunted a room using infrasound waves and stuck people in there. Results? A lot of dizzy, tingly, aroused, and gullible individuals.
You've seen iPod docks before, but how many of them have been shaped in a manner reminiscent to 80s arcade game villains? Ten? You're a damned liar. Zero. That's how many. You miscounted? Sure.
This toy is shaped like a row of books, and includes a sensor that triggers spooky noises and pushes out one of the books when someone walks past. It might fool someone, although I think that old-style binding may scream in-between all those O'Reilly books on programming. [UberGizmo]
It just so happens that our neighbors are in the market for a clock that's even easier to break than normal clocks, which means we'll actually have an excuse to come over this time to check out the hot wife. The clock itself is made of two plates of glass, one of which is a mirror, attached together by four rods.
Solid Alliance. Let us all bow down and worship Solid Alliance. Please. Humor me, I've had a bad week. This is their latest USB, with a ghost detector attached. If it detects a shift in the magnetic waves within a room an alarm sounds and lights on the unit flash.
Just in time for Halloween—2007, that is—this Ghost Mouse from Pat Says Now is shaped like a mouse and has two ghosty buttons for you to click on. It's also got a scroll wheel, but face it, you're not buying this mouse for the features.
