Peak Design's Slide is a camera strap that tries to rise above the glut of cheap, frustrating tethers that come bundled with your camera. How does it do that? It uses a combination of seductive materials, quick adjustments, and a unique connection system called Anchor Links that lets you quickly switch between…
These skydivers—after a series of crazy spins—land on a lake sliding with their feet all the way to the shore. I've seen skydivers land in crazy ways before but I've never seen them touch down in such an acrobatic way.
POV footage shows it's a helluva drop so yeah, it's scary. People will pretty much plummet straight down a 168-foot 7-inch tall slide—which makes it the world's tallest water slide—at thigh burning speeds to blast over a massive hill to ride another "mini" 50 feet slide. It doesn't get any sicker than this.
Brad Paisley was playing on the stage when he decided to use a fan's GoPro as a slide for his guitar solo. This resulting footage from the sliding camera is truly unique.
Either that or there's going to be a lot of squished people needing to be scraped off the tiles at the deep end. Currently under construction at the Schlitterbahn park in Kansas City, the Meg-a-Blaster slide will open in Spring 2014, dropping people from nearly 140 feet up.
Though still not nearly as exciting as going over a waterfall in a barrel (well, The Insano maybe), our friends at Oobject have compiled 12 excellent examples of these slippery slopes.
If you were anything like me growing up, you dreamt about living in a firehouse just so you could have a fire pole to slide down. This San Francisco townhouse is the house I dreamt about. I'm so moving here.
When we analyzed the plans for Steve Jobs' future home, we found one very important upgrade to be missing: A slide. Hopefully he'll think of making that addition later on, but in the meantime here's a collection of our favorite houses with built-in slides:
Anyone who's tried to type on a TiVo—searching for YouTube, or viewing Netflix, or trying to find that show you want to record—knows it's both tedious and rage-inducing. TiVo Slide fixes this problem, plus, it's a better remote entirely.
The myTouch 3G Slide could go either way: A family-friendly Android phone with an awesome Sidekick-y keyboard, or, much like its name, a godawful conglomeration of disjointed parts.
The pocket cam's claim to fame is being "good enough." The Flip SlideHD strives to be a little more, adding a sliding touchscreen for watching videos on the camera itself. That's biting off more than it can, or should, chew.
At the request of his children, London architect Alex Michaelis installed a slide next to the staircase in their new eco-friendly dream home.
I don't know if this it the longest slide in the world, but it sure looks like it. Where the hell is this because we want to ride it.
We love our jobs here at Gizmodo. But every once in a while even we find something more interesting than the latest breakthroughs in USB-powered humping animals. Impossible, you say? Not when it comes to a gigantic homemade Slip 'N Slide. It's tough to scale the slides' exact size, but it looks to drop a solid two…
The rumored Sidekick Slide Scarlet (read: red edition) is available now from T-Mobile. It's just about the same as the regular Sidekick Slide, with myFaves support, QVGA display, microSD slot, 1.3-megapixel camera and all the Sidekick features that kids love. The phone's only major difference is the color Scarlet, and…
We know how much you kids love the Sidekicks, which is why you'll be excited at getting a completely new color: fire red. Boy Genius has the image above, plus gives the estimated release date on T-Mobile at either late May or early June. It's no Sidekick 4, but it'll do for now. We're still wondering how much they had…
A new patent filing by RIM for a "hybrid portrait-landscape handheld device with trackball navigation and Qwerty hide-away keyboard" suggests that future Blackberrys may remind us pretty strongly of a SideKick Slide, or perhaps an HTC Tilt without the tilt. We're guessing that the trackball is a version of their pearl…
Not to inundate you with endless updates about the keyport key device, but we've got some news that you'll be glad to hear. After the limited edition $300 run is done, there's going to be a cheaper $50 edition of the Keyport slide some time in 2008.
The Sidekick Slide was pulled off the T-Mo product line last month due to faulty battery contacts, which forced the phone to power off by itself when opened one too many times. The DIY fix was to stick some business cards or loose paper into the battery compartment to make sure the contacts never de-contact, but we're…
