AutoWed wedding machine makes getting married easy

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on June 26th, 2011

Who needs a priest when you get married? No one. That’s apparently what Concept Shed thinks, since they are the brains behind the AutoWed: a machine that replaces the priest in your wedding.

Want to get hitched? Just enter your details and it will enter you into matrimonial bliss. If you don’t yet have a ring, it has you covered there too, presumable for a large fee. We imagine these will be in production soon, followed by an AutoDivorce machine.

Google has seemingly invaded every aspect of our lives and now it has rolled out a site to help you create your own wedding, edit photos and plan the wedding using Google’s tools, like Sites, Docs and Picnik.

Google teamed up with wedding planner Michelle Rago for the templates. She also provides tips for the couple. There’s also a wedding sweepstakes for $25,000 and the chance to get Rago help plan your wedding. Sounds crazy. Would you use this?

Robot marries couple in Japan

Posted in Robots by Conner Flynn on May 17th, 2010

Here’s a heartwarming story of two robot geeks that fell in love and were then married by a robot. Tomohiro Shibato and Satoko Inoue were married in a ceremony conducted by none other than the 4-foot tall i-Fairy robot.

We aren’t sure if that is actually legal in Japan. And if it isn’t, this guy has a legal way out at some point. At the very least I hope this same robot will handle the divorce. We hear that some Roomba’s walked her down the aisle and Asimo caught the bouquet, while Bender smoked a cigar in back and proclaimed, “I’d hit that”.

Groom updates Facebook Relationship status at the altar

Posted in Facebook by Conner Flynn on December 2nd, 2009

Human beings have never been so connected with one another and obsessed with info. Then again, maybe we are all just stupid monkeys tweeting our every move, trying desperately to leave our mark on this world before the Grim Reaper comes tweeting @you.. I iz in yer reality takin ur soul.

Whatever the case, this couple is really into the facebook that all the kids are using. It was a normal wedding ceremony until the groom pulled out his phone and changed his relationship status on Facebook to ‘married’ right there at the altar. The bride followed suit, and the crowd gets a good laugh. Then the preacher says “If it’s official on Facebook, it’s official in my book,” he says.

Botropolis: This week in robotsIt’s Friday. You know what that means. It’s time for our weekly robot roundup. It’s been a busy week over at Botropolis, as usual. Robots don’t take a break and neither do we. Rest assured, we will still be reporting on their exploits even as the bunker burns around us and cold metal fingers tighten around our necks. Until that day, we shall document their rise to power, fearing them, preparing, and checking out cool robot toys that distract us.

Two new Segway bots: A Bomb-Defusing, Riot-Controlling, Firefighting duo.

Loki: A robot named after the Norse god.

We love it when a plan comes together: The Robot A-Team.

“Yes I Do” soundwave wedding ring

Posted in Apparel by Conner Flynn on November 23rd, 2008

“Yes I Do” soundwave wedding ringHere’s a ring only a married geek could love. Most people engrave their wedding ring with things like “Forever” or “Yes I Do” etc. Instead of engraving those words on a wedding ring, this ring comes with a cut-out of the sound wave of “Yes I Do”. Designer Sakura Koshimizu uses lasers to cut out the shape of the waveform of those sounds.

He’ll use sound editing software, record the sound and the software will show the sound waves on the screen, which can then be fed into a laser. Hey, it’s better then a tattoo. How many ya got now? Pam, Mary, Laura and Britney? Meanwhile you’re married to a Sarah. Yeah, this is much better. You know, just in case.


Dad gives son Steampunk Clock as wedding gift

Dad gives son Steampunk Clock as wedding gift
Whether it’s marriage by shotgun or just a pat on the back, you can’t do much better then getting this beautiful steampunk clock as a gift. It beats the hell out of a toaster or a blender. The father spent weeks working on the clock, which is walnut with brass and other metals.

He did a pretty good job considering that the son only recently introduced him to the whole steampunk thing. Plus the guy is grade A crazy in a good way like Doc Emmett Brown. He wanted to wear a steam-punk suit to the wedding, but his wife wouldn’t let him. It’s made by Diversified Artistic Designs (D.A.D.).

Star Wars Death Star wedding cake

Star Wars Death Star wedding cake
Once again we see what happens when you combine geekery with the bakery. We told you about the Atari cake, and the R2-D2 cake. Behold the Death Star wedding cake.

I have to say that it takes a special kind of woman to get onboard with the idea of having any kind of geek cake at her wedding. And symbollically, it’s right on target. After all, many guys would consider marriage to be the final run down the Death Star trench as she shoots a pair of lasers down the hole, blowing your space station to hell.
