I have this really fussy can opener that I always forget how to use and for some reason, I’ve never bought a normal can opener to replace it. Or maybe I’ll just never replace it and use this neat spoon trick to crack open a can instead.
Crushing cans with your bare hands or stepping on them with your full body weight or shooting them with a bb gun are all fun ways to destroy an aluminum can. What might be most fun is letting it crush itself. How? Magical pressure.
This Russian bushcraft instructor has an amazing trick up his sleeve: he can open a tin can with his bare hands. And this video shows you how you can do it, too. Sure, there are other ways to get into your food without an opener, but this one requires nothing more than your hands, some patience, and a little effort.
6y11. That's the medallion number and plate of the New York Police Department's spy cab, "outfitted with state-of-the-art surveillance gear" to eavesdrop on anyone within range. "Anyone" is usually muslim people going into mosques.
When Budweiser changed its iconic all American beer can to accentuate the bow tie logo of the so called King of Beers, I was not happy. Even though I don't really care what the outside of the beer can looks like as long as my words start slurring. Even though I don't drink Budweiser. It was a telegraphed move by an…
That's "hella-long," our editor Joe has assured me, and just in case you're willing to test that one out yourself, they can be used as normal stereo headphones should the battery run out of juice.
Aluminum cans are convenient! So why would we need a better soda can? Well because even though they're recyclable, they're not really reusable. This soda can is not only reusable, it's also biodegradable. Better for everybody!
Inside every soda can you've slurped from lurks a gorgeously embossed box, yearning to come alive. This isn't just recycling; it's reinventing. And here's how to make your own in under four minutes.
These fear-in-a-can cans by Hoxton Monster Supplies are perfect: the unassuming typeface, color and laugh out loud descriptions make for a great gag gift. I'll take a vague sense of unease and escalating panic please.
A new liquid mixture will allow people to literally spray clothes onto their body. Once the mixture hits your body, it turns into a thin layer of fabric that can be peeled off, washed, and re-worn. Unfortunately, it's also skintight.
It doesn't only look beautiful, and it would make Jon Ive and Steve Jobs wet, but this naked Coca-Cola can would help save energy while reducing air and water pollution. Would it really make a difference? Let's do some math:
My trashcan is a metal, woven-looking thing filled with crumpled up ideas and 48 gum wrappers. Makes me wish I had one of these 35 customized, artist-designed trashcans being put into auction for charity instead. (Particularly the cactus one.)
Usually to meet my top popping OCD, I plow through a 24-pack or two in a single night. But it's an addiction.
This isn't the first USB-powered humidifier you've seen, but it may be the weirdest: it comes shaped and painted like a drink can. It uses ultrasound to generate "cool, moisturizing steam" at the rate of 50ml per hour, which may sound attractive to you if your office environment is one of those over-air-conditioned…
Our mouths dropped last week when we discovered the double-lidded jar. Now we're equally impressed by a can that's resealable. The can pops open like any normal can. Then, when you're finished taking a few sips, you simply rotate the the tab and a second layer of metal plugs the hole. (The video will probably make…
Does art imitate life or does life imitate art? That's one of many, many questions that arose in my mind when I saw this art exhibit in France that's made up of 10,000 "Canburgers." And no, these aren't just purchased from the place we found the originals in, they were specially commissioned by the artist, Mike…
Curiosity is at an all-time high about the Cheeseburger in a Can. Does it taste good? Will I die if I eat it? Thanks to one brave soul who put his life on the line for canned cuisine, we now know the answers to these questions and more. First off, it is fairly expensive at 3.95 EUR (around $6) and it takes about 10…
Godzilla showed up at my parents' house in Tokyo today. But he wasn't here to destroy buildings or scare innocent citizens like me. He just wanted to show off his mad can-opening skillz. Now, every time I tilt him, beer spews out his mouth and he lets out a mighty roar. Sexy.
We value our time spent on the can, so the thought of having commercial-playing displays in the bathroom pisses us off (lame pun intended). But apparently that's how it's been going on down under. This image of a hand dryer in Australia shows an ad playing right off the dryer's display. We don't wash our hands to…
