The World’s Largest Rube Goldberg Machine Is a Balloon-Busting Masterpiece [Video]

Monday, April 9th, 2012

If you thought Purdue’s previous Rube Goldberg machine was impressive, a 156-step burger making contraption, you’ll be ‘blown away’ with its latest creation. A 300-step machine whose sole purpose is to blow up and pop balloons, and set world records. More »

Mouse Computer’s LuvBook S heals emotional scars, one Hello Kitty at a time

Saturday, November 26th, 2011
What the world needs now is just one thing, and that thing is a bejeweled Hello Kitty laptop. Fortunately, Japan’s Mouse Computer is well aware of this, which is why it’s unleashed the LuvBook S, pictured above. Designed in collaboration with Sanrio and Swarovski, this masterpiece is powered by a 2.2 GHz Intel Core i3-2330M processor and boasts an 11.6-inch, 1,366 x 768 display. It also packs a 500GB HDD and a 1.3 megapixel camera, but all that really matters is the swaggy centerpiece — a heart-ensconced Hello Kitty mug made out of about 1,100 Swarovski stones and untold buckets of cuddles. The LuvBook is available now for $900, at the source link below.

iPhone 4 SLR Mount lets you shoot 5-megapixel photos with your $3,000 lens

Thursday, July 7th, 2011


So you flew around the world for a photo assignment, camera bag packed full of high-end lenses, but forgot the DSLR on the kitchen counter. Not to worry! You never leave home without your iPhone 4 and its new must-have accessory: the iPhone SLR Mount. $190 scores you one of these aluminum bad boys, eager to pair with your multi-thousand dollar Canon or Nikon optic, bringing “powerful depth of field” and manual focus to your smartphone’s itsy bitsy image sensor. You can reportedly use the new pricey mobile rig to capture photos with shallow depth of field, without the need to add one of those “unethical” $5 digital filter apps. The accessory is ready to ship, so you’re just 24 hours (and a couple hundred dollars) away from having this life-changing masterpiece sent straight to your door. As for us? We’re holding out a bit longer for the iPad version.

To get things started, we’ll be taking a first-hand look at the myriad Windows Phone 7 devices with Microsoft’s Aaron Woodman. We’ll also be taking an inside look at Google TV and Engadget’s own Darren Murph will be joining Josh, Nilay, and Paul on stage, Guinness world record in hand. What’s more, we’re ending the night with our first ever Halloween costume contest! Yep, you heard that right and there will be giveaways for the best costumes, so get to work on your winning masterpiece now! We’ll also have music from Kris Keyser and visuals from noteNdo and plenty of other giveaways at the live show only, so make the trek and join us at The Times Center in person. We have a new ticketing policy, so if you’re coming to the live show, be sure to read about it below.

The Engadget Show is sponsored by Sprint, and will take place at the Times Center, part of The New York Times Building in the heart of New York City at 41st St. between 7th and 8th Avenues (see map after the break).

  • Ticketing will continue until all tickets are given away
  • You cannot collect tickets for friends or family — anyone who would like to come must be present to get a ticket

Seagate teams with Paramount, pre-loads movies onto 500GB FreeAgent Go

Sunday, April 11th, 2010

Another fine day in paradise, another fine external hard drive for archivists to consider. Seagate has just announced its latest FreeAgent Go USB 2.0 drive, a pocket-sized external HDD with a 2.5-inch 500GB disc in there ready to be stuffed with your favorite blurred images and shakycam videos from the decade that was… except for the 20GB or so that’s already claimed. In a move that may or may not be indicative of forward progress in the fight to free digital content, Seagate has partnered with Paramount Pictures in order to pre-load these drives with Star Trek (yes, the 2009 version), which can be unlocked gratis and shuffled about as you please after you register the drive. Additionally, 20 other titles are pre-loaded, and those guys can be “easily and securely unlocked through the online purchase of a license key,” with pricing ranging from $9.99 to $14.99 per film. We had an opportunity to fire up Star Trek, and we must say — the whole unlocking process was pretty painless on a Windows 7 rig. We didn’t splurge on a third ninth copy of Nacho Libre, but we’re pretty sure that masterpiece would be similarly easy to tap into. Oh, and if you’d rather just have free space rather than movies you already own / couldn’t care less about, the delete command works wonders.

Insane MS Paint Picture Took Man Four Years to Complete [Ms Paint]

Sunday, January 17th, 2010

MS Paint aficionado scorpiongold (his YouTube account name) spent four years creating this “masterpiece.” At 2.5mx2.3m, it’s more than a mere painting—it’s an entire world, filled with fanciful whimsy and magical characters. Did I mention it took four years?

As for the hairband soundtrack? Well, like all hairband music, it’s a bit older than four years. And yet, it’s oddly fitting given the circumstances. Interpret the “insane” however you want in this case.

Four years. [YouTube via Geekologie]

Famous Paintings Reproduced In Coffee [Art]

Sunday, November 8th, 2009

Sure this reproduction of Michelangelo’s The Creation of Adam is a lil’ bit perverted by the inclusion of a coffee cup, but look closer. The entire masterpiece was painted using only coffee

I’m amazed that I haven’t seen these coffee art clones before. They’re the creation of Karen Eland, a former barista, who one day decided to dip a paint brush into her coffee cup instead of nibbling on biscotti. By gradually building layers of espresso she’s able to create a range of tones and what must be the tastiest smelling paintings ever.

Maybe it’s my caffeine addiction talking, but this is the first time I’ve ever seen the Mona Lisa and wanted to give her a lick. [Coffee Art via Artsy Spot via Neatorama]
