It's not easy to do video game-centric movies right. Sometimes they turn out good, other times they just create a well intentioned flop. Wreck-It Ralph is one video game flick that many people loved. The good news is that a sequel is coming in 2018.

Drake Anthony aka “styropyro“ is truly a mad scientist. Why you ask? Because he recently created a 200-watt laser bazooka. Just to give you an idea of the power that he is harnessing, a typical laser pointer is .005 watts, and even the most most powerful handheld lasers out there are just 3.

These days, smartphones can take some pretty great photos all on their own, but the biggest limitations of their cameras is the size of the lens and the size of their image sensors.

I work in an office full of women who seem to have a completely different perception of temperature than I do. That means I sit in my office with sweat on my brow while they walk around with jackets on complaining about how cold it is.

You may have never heard of omni-directional car wheels. I certainly hadn’t. What that means are wheels and tires that allow the vehicle to move in any direction you need it to within the length of its body.

Have you ever wondered what's inside of a black box? You know, the boxes that are on airplanes and helicopters, that help investigators determine what happened in a crash? Well, father and son team Dan and Lincoln from the What’s Inside? channel cut open a black box flight recorder to find out.

The next time you are working up a thirst playing games on your favorite retro handheld from the '80s, grab the appropriate bottle opener and have a cold beer. These Game Boy Bottle Openers are perfect for the occasion. These handheld openers are basically the coolest bottle openers ever.

Check out this beautiful Xbox One. This isn't your typical boring game console that sits in your entertainment center ignored, except to turn it on and play your games. This is a console worth waging war over. It's the Iron Throne of game systems. Behold the Game of Thrones Xbox One.

Beer Pong has been around for ages, but maybe it's time for an upgrade. Something that makes the game a bit more challenging. Someone came up with just the right idea: involve Roombas in the game. Megan N documented this game of beer pong being played using two Roomba robotic vacuum cleaners.

One of the latest amazing robots to come out of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) is based on a Salamander. It can mimic the way a salamander moves, on land or in the water. It goes by the name of Pleurobot (named after the species Pleurodeles waltl).

This is the sort of nightmarish bike H.R. Giger might sell you if he owned a creepy bike store. It's slow, creepy and inspired by the Theo Jansen's Strandbeest. This thing was built by California art and engineering collective CARV. Obviously, they don't have to get to places fast.
