Vacuum shoes: Lazy bums rejoice!

As we gearheads sit in front of our computers all day, crumbs and other debris have a habit of collecting beneath our desk chairs. We know from experience that these entrails will not be cleaned until our girlfriends (or mother’s…pathetic) force us to vacuum. Which is why the prototype of these Electrolux vacuum shoes make us bounce for joy in ...

The motorcycle that thought it was a car

We’ve all seen those three-wheeled motorcycles with a back end that looks like a camaro or corvette. Well, an Austrian company has gone one step further, building a complete car. What’s so unusual about making a car, you ask? Well, up until now, KTM has only made motorcycles, and their first attempt at a car, called the X-Bow, looks like ...

Elegance with a touchscreen: the LG KE850

What in the world was Thanko thinking when creating this snow globe christmas mouse? “I want to create something that mixes water and electrical current! Muahaha!”.

Now that’s plush! Porsches gone wild

¬† We don’t know if we’d drive around in a car that looks like a couch from our Grandparents living room, but we must admit that this Porsche 924 is one, to put it kindly…interesting form of transportation.
