Hug-E-Gram gives you hugs from a distance

Posted in Apparel by Conner Flynn on March 30th, 2010

Are you having a bad day? Need a hug? But wait, hugs mean germy people and you don’t need to get sick. Plus, maybe the only other people around are your guy friends and guy hugs aren’t manly. What do you do? Well, there’s the Hug-E-Gram.

If you need love, you can wear it around your waist or torso, and wait for your friends to send you a personalized message with the hug. Forget human contact. Who needs it? It will cost you $29, which seems expensive for hugs, but hey, at least you’ll be getting a hug.

Aliens to UK: We hate wind power, consider this a warning

Aliens to UK: We hate wind power, consider this a warningSomething caused this wind turbine in the UK to break. It could have been any of a million things, all very rational. But residents of the village of Conisholme, in Lincolnshire are having none of that. They know that aliens did it. And they don’t need any stinkin’ Men In Black, Mulder & Scully, Leonard Nimoy, Agents from Majestic or Alien corpses to prove it.

They claim that they saw bright lights in the sky “like an octopus’ tentacles” right around the time that the blades were damaged. Others claim that the damage was the result of a “cow-sized ice chunk” and even a “robot stealth bomber” was blamed. According to The Guardian, the mysterious lights were most likely from fireworks being shot off for one of their 80 year old residents. But what are you going to believe, something rational, or stories about aliens in robot stealth bombers?

Custom Desert Eagle may be the strangest Wii gun mod yet

Posted in Wii by Conner Flynn on January 5th, 2009

Custom Desert Eagle may be the strangest Wii gun mod yeteBay seller fordelite_76 is just brimming with confidence that you will bid and bid high on this auction for a custom Wii gun they created. I can tell, because he uses a lot of asterisks and the word AWESOME sandwiched in between. That’s confidence. And why not? “IT WORKS GREAT AND LOOKS BETTER THAN ANY OTHER WII GUN OUT THERE ..I HAVENT SEEN …”

Who could argue with that? It looks so realistic with the large white Wiimote attached bayonet style. I bet the thinking was that if you can’t frag your enemy from a distance, just approach and stab your TV Civil War style. Another strange thing is that in the pics the gun appears to be hardwired to the Wimote’s B button via a bent hanger wire that pulls the trigger. Now that’s craftsmanship.

Strange Panasonic gel remote

Strange Panasonic gel remoteThis may be the strangest remote control we’ve ever seen. With the push of a button, this remote becomes rigid and ready for use. Umm, ok. Just what was Panasonic thinking when they designed this one?

When it’s not in use, this concept remote just sort of lays there limp, pulsating with light. But when you touch it, the remote gets excited and becomes rigid. Rigid and ready to be used in a wide variety of ways, that I won’t go into here. My guess is that some other company will market stiffness pills for it, so it can remain rigid longer and if it’s rigid for more then four hours, you’ll have to call for help.

TokyoFlash Infection Watch looks sick

TokyoFlash Infection Watch looks sick
…In a good way. Mostly. TokyoFlash continues to surprise us with unique watch designs. With their latest, the “Infection” watch, they apparently had sickness on their minds. I’m not sure if I like it or not. On one hand the design is cool, but I look at it and I feel like I need to be quarantined. It’s like ill pop-art.

The time is shown with 12 red, 11 yellow and four green LEDs, and you can choose have the display animated or just show the time. The curved watch is stainless-steel and water-resistant to 3ATM and sells for around $135.
