There are swords that are on fire, swords made in fire and now, swords that are made of fire. The Backyard Scientist created this “fire saber” which is basically a seltzer bottle that spits out a stream of butane which lights on fire with a lighter. The look of the fire stream resembles a light saber, hence the fire…
You could hammer a nail into a wall or something but why not hammer a nail and turn it into a tiny sword? That's right. It's a completely silly exercise that could also be a half-commentary on creating useless objects but it also looks like a lot of fun to actually do too. Plus, it makes for a nice drink stirrer.
People don't keep a saber in the kitchen drawer, but opening a champagne bottle with a sword is so cool that it should be mandatory—at least—in every single restaurant. Here's food star Alton Brown showing you how you do it and why this method works so well.

Poor Deandre Irby! Dude was just trying to enjoy the day like any young person would—hanging out at the outdoor mall, skating around with his backpack on, maybe think about getting a pretzel and oh, swinging his 'fantasy sword' with a 26-inch blade around. What the hell?
Who are these brave Russian gladiators? And why have they electrified two swords with which to fight? The world may never know their names, but we will know what to call them: heroes. Dear, sweat, idiot heroes. [Buzzfeed]
It's been nearly a year since I turned my thoughts to Sword and Sworcery EP, a unique, atmospheric iOS game coming sometime hopefully very soon from Superbrothers, but this new trailer has got me geeked up about it all over again. They're calling it a "meandering mythopoetic adventure," which basically makes me…
The odd mess in this photo is a copper-alloy sword guard discovered in a shipwreck which is believed to be Queen Anne's Revenge. Yes, that was the name of Pirate Blackbeard's ship—and yes, this could be his sword.
Terry Pratchett may write a mean fantasy novel, but he also forges one heckuva sword. In honor of being knighted last year, Sir Pratchett dug up 175 pounds of iron ore, sprinkled in some meteorites, and made himself a proper weapon.
ThinkGeek is now joking that its Samurai Sword Handle Umbrella should come with a warning label: "May incite SWAT teams." The reason? Panic on a Georgia college campus.

Holy crap. Detectives are still interviewing a Johns Hopkins University student who fatally lacerated the upper body of a man breaking into his off-campus residence overnight. The suspect also suffered a nearly-severed hand, and was pronounced dead at the scene.
I have ignored computer ergonomic professionals my entire computing life, but this winter, a pain in my lower back would not go away. Instead of listening to "experts" I followed the advice of ancient swordsmen.
Unlike the wet noodle Nerf blades of my youth, these new N-Force scepters are stiff enough to put on the hurt without flexing, but soft enough to not scare mom (too much). I want.

Remember those gun-toting robots that were being pulled out of Iraq because they were moving when they weren't commanded? Well, according to their manufacturer it's all "an urban legend" — the SWORD robot is not going to spin around and point its gun at friendlies... it's fine'n'dandy and still deployed in the field.…
