You might not know the name Will Vinton. But if you grew up watching TV in the 1980s and 90s, you definitely know his work. Vinton was the genius behind claymation characters like the California Raisins, the Domino’s Noid, and the M&M’s before they were taken over by CGI. Vinton died yesterday of cancer after a…
On Wednesday, Domino’s achieved a major milestone in automation when it successfully completed the first commercial delivery of a sad pizza you instantly regret ordering by drone.
Did you know today was a holiday? After a weekend of low-effort costumed drunks fighting, fucking, and puking in front of my apartment—sometimes simultaneously—I thought we were done this year’s glorified national Santacon. But no. Halloween is today. Let us breathe the heavy sigh of the defeated.
I have a problem. It comes with double pepperoni, green pepper, and a cheese base. Sometimes there is cheesy bread. Dominos, and its network of dangerous easy ways to order food, is my enabler.
We all like pizza. We all like robots, most of the time. But we definitely, absolutely, undeniably love pizza-delivering robots. Fortunately, Domino’s has built one.
Starting on May 20th, there will be a new definition for a first-world problem. For those too lazy to order pizza delivered to their door via an app or (god forbid) talking to a human being on the phone, a new option will exist: tweeting a pizza emoji to @Dominos.
The tracker is legit—but only as legit as the people in the store let it be. The fact is, there are a lot of factors that happen in a store that the tracker can't always account for, and so your mileage may vary with the online tracker for those reasons.
Like pizza? Like fried chicken? Of course you do. You have a mouth. So how quickly will you say yes to the latest frankenstein food creation that will fatten up easily excitable suburbanites: Domino's pizza made with breaded chicken crust. The world is a beautiful place.
Thanks to Ford and Domino's unholy union of utility, gluttony, and good old fashioned American engineering, your next car could come with a built-in pizza ordering app. Are those tears running down Lady Libety's face you see? Nope—just meat sweats.
It's the question you likely ask yourself every weekend around 1:42 on Saturday morning: How long will it take for a pizza to reach my mouth? And, more importantly, who's delivering it? Now you know.
See that gigantic spiral? Yeah. That's just the first 55,000.
It starts with one domino. It branches off into different lines. It ends with 272,297 dominos being toppled over. It sounds like a cross between a snake hissing and an annoying morning alarm. It's mesmerizing. It's hypnotic. It's 10 minutes long. It's worth watching over and over. It's world record breaking for…
To kick off its 2013 Summer Reading Program, the Seattle Public Library set a world record with a library-appropriate domino chain. Twenty-seven volunteers lined up 2,131 books and knocked them all down.
Is this pizza-delivering drone from Dominos just a publicity stunt, or a tantalizing look at the future of food delivery? Because while the eight-bladed DomiCopter is a little impractical given it needs a skilled pilot, eventually autonomous drones will be capable of delivering a piping hot pizza in mere minutes…
It's been been covered with a heat-activated label that changes from black to a picture of a pizza once it's done a few thousand revolutions inside your DVD player. At which point it also smells like pizza. Utterly dumb, or totally brilliant? We report – YOU DECIDE.
How's this for a brilliant marketing campaign? To help sell the notion that there's no better way to spend an evening than with a pizza and a movie, Dominos in Brazil created custom DVDs with a heat-reactive flavored varnish that actually smelled like pizza once they were played.
This is the ultimate pizza delivery vehicle, according to Domino's which held a public design challenge to come up with the best car to drive pizzas around. It's small, it has sliding doors, a rear-view camera and sliding shelves for the pizzas.
If you've ever wondered what exactly wiped out the dinosaurs and how quickly over 38 hours of painstaking domino stacking can be undone, check out FlippyCat's latest tumbling creation. It's particularly noteworthy this time not just because it's educational, but also because most of the dinosaurs and the giant earth…
We've already seen domino guru FlippyCat recreate Van Gogh's Starry Night in falling dominoes. Now the endlessly patient domino-plotter has recreated the extinction of the dinosaurs with domino dinos, a domino Earth, and a hurtling plastic asteroid to get it all started.
