HYT Watches has made a name for itself in the horological world with timepieces that use fluids pumped through bellows and tubes to display the time. And while its new Skull watch is just a fun variation on its older HYT H1 and H2, superheroes and super-villains alike will no doubt be clambering to strap one to their…
YOWCH! A Brazilian taxi driver survived being stabbed in the head ... and roamed around with the knife wedged into his melon for over three hours. As you can see from the X-rays, we're not talking about a little poke from a Swiss Army knife. That's practically Excalibur up in there!
Currently in storage, but not on view, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art: This terrifically ghastly 19th century musical instrument (technical classification: "Chordophone-Lyre-plucked") made from a human skull, antelope horns, skin, gut, and hair.
This centuries old, one-third scale anatomical model of a human skull was sculpted by hand and contains remarkable detail. And research suggests that it maybe be a previously undiscovered work made by none other than Leonardo Da Vinci.
You're looking at an x-ray of Hitler's skull, now up for auction starting at $100. It was part of a 47-page 1945 classified report issued by the US Military Intelligence Service Center that "contained highly-detailed data obtained from Adolf Hitler's six chief physicians."
Dutch artist diddo created this full-scale sculpture of a human skull made with street cocaine. The piece is entitled '"ecce animal." The artist even took the cocaine to a research lab in order to verify its authenticity.
A research team at the University of Texas, led by chemists Jodi Connell, Marvin Whiteley, and Jason Shear, has 3D-printed this microscopic chimpanzee skull, which later served as an unsettling proof-of-concept for printing "microscopic houses" to trap bacteria, forming "tiny zoos for the study of infections."
If you're going to get a hole drilled into your skull, you don't want to use just any tool. (Though most of us would avoid the skull-drilling in the first place.) One researcher used four different instruments on a single skull to compare Neolithic trepanation methods.
A gigantic skull has been recovered from cliffs on the edge of the river Potomac. At six-feet long and 1,000 pounds, paleontologists believe the skull once belonged to a long-extinct species of baleen whale that would have measured over 25 feet long when alive.
This is unsettling. The TSA found something wonkier and more gruesome than your usual box cutter or vibrator or even loaded gun this week: they found an actual human skull. Yeah. At Fort Lauderdale Airport, TSA screeners discovered that the remains of a human skull and its teeth were hidden inside clay pots. The skull…
A man has had the first ever 3D-printed skull-replacement fitted, swapping out a whole 75 per cent of the bone in his head for a man-made replacement.
Professional airbrush and bodypaint artist Lisa Berczel painted this bit of medical makeup for the International Make-Up Artist Trade Show in Los Angeles. Aside from some medical grade paper tape near the eye and brow blocking, this is all paint.
America is a nation of fat-heads. But hey, don't shoot the messenger; we're just passing on the news from a recent study, which suggests that the heads of white Americans are growing in volume, year-on-year.
These sepia-hued photographs look like something out of a dream, but the camera that took them is somewhat nightmarish. Instead of a camera made out of metal and plastic, these photos were taken with a camera made from a human skull.
If a human tried chopping wood with his head, he'd lose at least one eye and sustain permanent brain damage. But woodpeckers do it all the live long day and sustain zero headular damage. How do they do it?
Dante Autullo is a tough guy. He's also, according to his wife, a very accident prone guy. So when he accidentally hit his head with a nail gun and only saw a scratch, he didn't think anything of it... EVEN THOUGH HE HAD A FREAKING NAIL LODGED IN HIS BRAIN.
The Garamantian civilization of ancient North Africa survived and thrived in the Sahara Desert from 1,100 BCE to 600 CE. Three newly discovered skull reveal that the Garamantians practiced medicine. Unfortunately, it involved making tiny holes in people's skulls.
Though pundits have argued that the "bell curve" of human intelligence favors big-skulled northerners, a new study shows definitively that large heads have nothing to do with intelligence.
A team of researchers in Italy are on the hunt to find the real Mona Lisa. That lawn mower looking machine they're holding is actually a geo-radar device that will scan the ground to locate the skull of the mysterious woman with an even more mysterious smile.
Bones recently excavated at a cave in Southwestern England show that some 14,700 years ago, people used human skulls as cups. The people of the Ice Age even had the decency to clean the skulls of any soft tissue and use stone tools to shape the skulls to be more cup-like. Resourceful, I guess. [PLoS One via Wired]
