Play Wolverine The Right Way - DIY Pneumatic Claws

(Video Link)

(Video Link)

Are you tired of playing Wolverine with plastic claws and mask? Looking for a way to snikt snikt the right way, with a pneumatic pump pushing out a set of wicked steel claws?

Then you're gonna love watching genius/madman Colin Furze build these automatic pneumatic Wolverine claws, which make him totally ecstatic as he goes to town on some cardboard.

Colin's claw rig is truly wicked in both how it looks and functions, and the making of video does a really good job of showing how they're made, but you'll need some serious skills if you're going to attempt to make a set of claws for your own personal mutant revolution.

How To Make A DIY 3D "Hologram" And Mess With Those Meddling Kids

(Video Link)

When the audience at Coachella 2012 saw a hologram of the fallen rapper Tupac take the stage they were dazzled, if not a bit scared.

Seeing a hologram of the dead icon perform on stage seemed like an extremely innovative and original idea, but the whole bit was actually based on the old Pepper’s Ghost trick, which has been used by stage magicians and Scooby Doo style con artists since the 19th century.

If you’ve ever wanted to try your hand at one of the oldest tricks in the book you'll appreciate this tutorial video by Joey Shanks of Shanks FX/PBS Digital Studios, which shows you how to make your own Pepper's Ghost setup and try your hand at resurrecting the dead...sort of.

George R. R. Martin's Darkest Secret - His 30 Year Old DOS Computer

(Video Link)

George R. R. Martin is now reaping the rewards of the millions of words he shaped into the epic fantasy series A Song Of Ice And Fire, but there’s one thing he won’t be spending his newfound HBO series money on- a new computer.

Martin is content to hammer away on a 30-year-old DOS computer, using WordStar 4.0 to create all of his works from the good old days of Wild C.A.R.D.S. to his newest epic fantasy, and he says it's all because he hates newfangled features like spell check.

His admission is bound to raise a few questions, chief among them for many teens- what's DOS?

Retired Bosnian Man Spent Two Years Covering His VW Beetle In Oak

There’s a retired Bosnian man out there who has a serious case of the shingles...attached to his Volkswagen Beetle.

Momir Bojic spent two years covering his Beetle with thousands of scalloped pieces of oak, giving it the unique look much like the roof of your finest pancake houses circa 1979, and now he has something to talk about at his weekly Shinglers Anonymous meetings.

It took 50,000 pieces of oak to completely cover the car, which is still fully operational and garners Momir lots of looks as he rides around town with the top down, sporting his matching shingled hat!

Gilbert Gottfried Lends His Beautiful Voice To Video Games

(Video Link)

Gilbert Gottfried has an unmistakably gorgeous voice, a somewhat brash manner and a unique method of delivering punchlines that's uniquely Gilbertian, and even though he has appeared in many movies, television shows and animated features he hasn’t lent his distinct vocal flavor to very many video games.

Thanks to Game Informer we can now see what we were missing when playing games like Skyrim, Mortal Kombat and Resident Evil without those musical Gilbertian tones in our earholes.

He may no longer be the voice of the AFLAC duck, but it looks like he'll be taking the world of video games by storm!

A Daring Report On Dorothy Silkstone's Cat Accessory Shop

(Video Link)

If you owned a cat in 1965, and happened to live in Bedford, England, then Dorothy Silkstone’s cat accessory shop was the place to go when your kitty had a fancy dress party or afternoon tea to attend.

Vintage newsreel archive site British Pathé dug up this fascinating look at the life of the fancy cat accessory shop owner, and boy is Dorothy's life hectic- between collaring cats, helping feline customers try on sweaters and take a spin on the cat tree of their dreams, and showing off her purr-fectly glorious collection of home decor dedicated to the almighty cat.

Ben Affleck Stars In - The Sad Batman Meme

His nickname may be the Dark Knight, but Batman usually has an intense, or angry, or coldly analytical look on his face, but the recently released photo of Ben Affleck in the Batsuit shows an emotional range that makes for a great new meme- Sad Batman.

Maybe he misses J.Lo, maybe he’s upset about the puffy muscle suit he has to wear, or he deeply regrets starring in Daredevil, or maybe he just misses his Matt Damon bromance days.

Whatever the case, when Affleck assumes the role of Batman he brings a newfound sense of depression to the character- which is hilarious!

Eat your hearts out Clooney, Kilmer, Bale and Keaton, there’s a new Batman in town- and he’s gone full blown Emo.

Watch The Failed Pilot For The 2001 Reboot Of Electra Woman And Dyna Girl

(Video Link)

There was once a superhero TV show reboot that simply didn’t make the cut, a show which could have led the way to the new television golden age of superheroic media franchises but simply fell flat with test audiences.

The show was called Electra Woman and Dyna Girl, starring Markie Post (of Night Court fame) and  Anne Stedman, based on the old Sid & Marty Kroft show of the same name that aired in the mid-1970s.

The show was developed by a young exec at the WB, and because it was to air on the WB it actually took place in the DC Universe, predating the hit show Smallville which would premiere one year later.

So what happened to this reboot? Was it simply too cynical for audiences to enjoy? Is this show another example of TV and movie execs passing on a superhero show with female lead characters? Watch this unaired pilot and see for yourself.

Real Dandelions Turned Into Remarkable OLED Lights

Despite the revelations revealed about some Japanese fisherman by a recently released dolphin based documentary the Japanese have always had a healthy love/respect of nature, and often incorporate natural motifs and elements into their design work.

Japanese designer Takao Inoue chose dandelions as the inspiration for his OLED light creations, but instead of simply making a lamp shaped like dandelions he illuminated the plants themselves, creating a visually interesting light source that's sure to drive botanists wild.

He calls these dandelion lights OLED Tampopo, and here’s how they were made:

The production process for these curious and graceful lights seems fairly difficult. First, Inoue carefully harvests a springtime dandelion, careful not to disturb its feather-light seeds. Then, the flower is sealed in a block of acrylic plastic (and how he manages to do so without capturing air bubbles is beyond me). Lastly, the OLED light is embedded inside the plant’s stem, although we haven’t figured out exactly how he does this or how the light is powered.

“Production testing could only be done during a small time in the spring of the year. Dandelions need a very long time to be encapsulated. Plus, it took a few years until I reached the quality that I liked,”

Afraid Of Clowns? You'll Love This Prank Video!

(Video Link)

Clowns are fun to have at a birthday party, maudlin when they’ve had too much to drink, and downright terrifying when they pop out from around the corner wielding a massive wooden mallet!

DM Pranks knows how to create a scenario that will scar people for life- start with a lonely parking structure late at night, add some unsuspecting people walking through said structure, a dummy body with an exploding head, and a clown willing to go the extra mile for a scare and you’ve got a recipe for big-top inspired terror!

Oh The Fun Those Toons Would Have Had At Marvin Acme's Funeral

Who Framed Roger Rabbit? is one of those beloved films that fans like just the way it is, and with the popularity of the film as a whole it’s probably best that one major scene was deleted from the final script of the movie- Marvin Acme's toon-filled funeral.

Despite the damper this morbid scene would have put on the movie as a whole, it would have made for a pretty entertaining scene to watch play out, according to these original storyboards from the film which were recently put up for auction on Ebay.

The funeral scene starred Foghorn Leghorn as a preacher, cast Goofy, Bluto, Felix the Cat and others as pallbearers, and contained a shot where Yosemite Sam angrily tosses Acme’s coffin into his grave, making it the most hilarious fake funeral ever proposed!

Japanese Man Arrested For Having Guns Made With 3D Printer

So far 3D printing technology has been used to create harmless, if not extremely useful, plastic items, but since it was discovered that 3D printers can be used to print working firearms, which can make it through metal detectors undetected, the powers that be are up in arms.

Along comes 27-year-old Yoshitomo Imura, a guy from Kawasaki City who unwittingly broke Japanese law by using his 3D printer to print guns, then created YouTube videos of himself firing the weapons.

Yoshitomo rightfully claims he had no idea printing the guns was illegal, and now he’ll become the first in what will probably be a long line of offenders who dare to print guns while the law scrambles to decide the legality of the entire process.

R.I.P. Alien Artist H.R. Giger

(Image Via Arno Balzarini/AP Photo)

It is truly a sad day for fans of the dark and mysterious works of H.R. Giger- the beloved artist has passed away at 74 years old from injuries suffered from a fall.

Giger is best known for his concept art work for the Alien films, his album cover art, his radical biomechanical surrealist paintings and his incomparable illustrative skills with an airbrush.

The Swiss artist was quite proud of the impact his art has made on the world of pop culture, and even though many in the art world saw his art as nothing more than "morbidly kitsch" his fans, myself among them, will always remember his works as an imaginative vision of the dark side of science fiction.

May he find the afterlife far more comforting than what he'd depicted in his paintings!

Remember When The Ninja Turtles Were On Oprah?

(Video Link)

The Ninja Turtles may have become pop culture icons, and remain instantly recognizable to most people, but back in the early 90s they were seen as a passing fad in children’s entertainment, one that parents just didn’t understand.

Nevertheless, the rubber suit variety of TMNT made all kinds of appearances, both televised and in person, in an effort to convince the general public that they aren't dangerous space aliens, or a bad influence on kids.

In this particularly colorful 1990 appearance on the Oprah Winfrey show they sing their teenage mutant hearts out, chow down on some Chicago style pizza, and generally drive the kids in the audience wild while their parents are left with that WTF look on their faces...

From Virtuous Foreman To Sociopathic Drifter - The True Story Of Phineas Gage

You may be familiar with the story of Phineas Gage, it's an enduring urban legend and fitting entry in the Ripley's Believe It Or Not canon, but his is a story that needs to be updated.

Phineas had an iron tamping rod driven completely through his head by a blasting cap while he was working as a railroad construction foreman, and he survived what should have been a life threatening injury with little more than damage to the frontal lobe of his brain. He was said to have changed overnight from a virtuous man to a terrifyingly sociopathic madman, but what really happened to poor old Phineas?

New evidence shows that much of what we know about Phineas Gage is fabricated nonsense, and that his story changes more often than an engineer changes his overalls.

Deliciously Clever Food Face Art

Playing with your food is an act which is frowned upon by our parents when we’re young, but as we grow older and gain the privilege of eating whatever we want come mealtime those of us who like a bit of fun with our food enjoy playing with our food whenever possible.

Artist Noah Scalin has made food play into an artform, and he was recently asked to make food faces with the meals he was served at eight restaurants participating in the Broad Appetit food and art festival in Richmond, Virginia.

His clever linework via leftovers really shows off the character of each meal, and may inspire others to try their hand at creating a plate portrait the next time they're eating out.

The Most Epic Way To Sell A '93 Volvo Station Wagon

(Video Link)

What’s the best way to sell a 1993 Volvo station wagon? Some might say local advertising, or through a friend or family member, or even at an auction, but Swedish art director Castor wasn’t about to resort to such mundane methods when it came to selling his beloved persimmon colored Volvo.

Castor went full epic with his sales pitch, creating a cinematic masterpiece that properly showcases his used vehicle for what it is- a mega machine built by mechanical wizards, which rolls around town on spinsy winsies and may or may not somehow contain hepatitis b. Shut up and take my money!

China's Strange Proposal For An Undersea Train That Connects To The U.S.

Chinese inventors are known for their wild ideas, like gun powder, ice cream and the compass, but now that China has established itself as an industrial superpower they’re taking those wild ideas to the end of the line.

A report in the Beijing Times states that China is developing a plan to build an 8,000+ mile railroad connecting China to Russia, Canada and the United States, with an over 125 mile stretch spanning the Bering Strait…along the bottom of the ocean.

This bold proposal may not seem like such a bad idea until you consider that the “proposed undersea route would be more than five times longer than the current longest underwater tunnel, the one under the English Channel", not to mention the mountains of red tape to wade through and billions of dollars needed to pull off such a feat of railroad engineering.

If railroads were made of dreams China would have a line that stretches clear to the moon and back...

Artist Creates Portraits Using Single Sheet Of Mesh Fabric

Tulle is a sheer mesh fabric generally used for various crafts, or sewing projects where a bit of sheer color is needed, but an industrious artist named Benjamin Shine has discovered another good use for this niche fabric- he uses tulle to create detailed portraits.

Benjamin creates highly detailed, and incredibly realistic, portraits using a single folded sheet of tulle, creating the shadows on each portrait by layering the fabric and ironing it down in all the right places.

It's amazing what Benjamin is capable of creating with just one sheet of tulle and a regular old steam iron!

A Cthulhuian Font You Can Download And Use To Summon Strange Beings

When the Great Old Ones have something to say they don’t wanna speak no English, they want a language that properly conveys their slime drenched derision for mankind, a language that makes humans think of tentacles and strange polyp shaped beings when they hear it being spoken aloud.

Few mortals have ever had the temerity to speak the names of the Great Old Ones aloud, much less try to speak in their native tongue, but a foolish mortal calling himself StapletonMcTavish has unlocked the secret of the Cthulhuian alphabet and he has released it upon mankind via the internet.

Download it, craft tales with it, and pray its very presence doesn't drive you insane!

The Most Dangerous Game Of Crocodile Dentist Ever

(Video Link)

There was a time when any videos featuring sick and crazy games, whether from a televised show or simply played for the sake of recording on video, would immediately elicit the reaction “only the Japanese…” and a knowing nod from those who had seen the bizarre video hilarity being exported from the Land of the Rising Sun.

Since then we've made our very own American jackasses rich and famous, and we've fully embraced the gonzo show so much that it doesn't seem so crazy anymore.

Then some Japanese guys came up with the idea to install razorblade teeth in their game of Crocodile Dentist, and they brought that gonzo show grand prize home to Japan once again!

(It should go without saying but don't try this at home, unless you're tired of having fingertips!)
