The Oculus Rift is already great when you're just sitting down, but it's easy to imagine an awesome future where you walk around with it on. A holodeck on your face. Well, that future's already here. » 2/05/14 10:07am 2/05/14 10:07am

Watch People Freak Out When They See Ghosts Inside an iPhone Camera

This prank is such pure evil genius that you can't help but laugh. And feel bad because you'd get freaked out too. Funny man Jack Vale scared the creepy crawly goosebumps out of people by asking strangers to take his picture with his iPhone. Why's that scary? Because Vale had pre-recorded a fake 'ghost' (or zombie)… » 10/17/13 8:32pm 10/17/13 8:32pm

Finally A Zombie-Fighting Toilet Brush Rifle With Scary Accuracy

As Joerg points out, toilet brushes tipped with nine inch nails are a much-beloved form of ammo on the Slingshot Channel. But the old toilet brush crossbows didn't really have a sighting system. So Joerg got serious and created a toilet brush sniper rifle, complete with telescopic sight, that can shoot with precision… » 9/15/13 10:32am 9/15/13 10:32am

A Weaponized Toilet Brush Crossbow Can Really Clean Up

When Joerg made metal-tipped toilet brushes a couple of months ago I'm pretty sure we were all thinking that they looked pretty tame. Okay, true, they violently annihilated a coconut suspended in ballistic gelatin, but they weren't horrifying, just chillingly effective. But a four shot repeating "monster" crossbow.

What The Special Effects in The Walking Dead Looks Like

Unlike other shows who sneakily add special effects without you realizing, The Walking Dead is so overtly gruesome and bloody and gore-y that we're completely aware that what we see is being spiced up with visual effects. Still, it's awesome to see how the effects are added. Stargate Studios shows off the reel of… » 4/06/13 2:00am 4/06/13 2:00am

Watch the Canadian Parliament Hilariously Debate the Zombie Apocalypse

That's it, I'm moving to Canada. They know how to have fun. Even in politics! In Canada's House of Commons today, there was an incredible 'debate' about creating an international zombie strategy "so that a zombie invasion does not turn into a zombie apocalypse." Canada's Minister of Foreign Affairs John Baird told… » 2/13/13 9:00pm 2/13/13 9:00pm

The Amazing Special Effects of The Walking Dead Are What Make the Show …

Just like Boardwalk Empire, The Walking Dead is a fake good show. All the style and swagger, none of the substance. It had its moment during season one but this season has been a snoozefest filled with yawns, farms and not enough walkers. But you know what's still great? The special effects. » 2/20/12 10:00pm 2/20/12 10:00pm
