Weird Facial Expression Robot Gets Confused By Babbling People
Here is a pretty bizarre video of a face only test robot that does facial expressions. However, it doesn't seem to be able to handle the group of people that are attempting to communicate with it. It just keeps telling them to come close and asks their name over and over.

Cool Computer IO Paint Brush Device Lets You Paint With Video
Here's a video of a prototype computer input output device which is designed like a paint brush. It has a built in video camera into the head of the brush which allows it to pick up "video textures" or still colors and textures. For example, they show the paint brush recording someone blinking their eye and then painting the eye blink texture on a computer screen canvas. It's hard to tell if the screen canvas is touch sensitive or not (I think it is) as it shows someone smudging one of the images with their finger. However, it's possible that the paint brush device just records itself drawing. It picks up all kinds of textures like this fur print off this hand bag and works exactly like a paint brush after that. Watch the video for a better visual explanation.

Indian Guy Conducts Electricity Without Showing Any Signs Of Pain In This Video
A guy in India can pass an electric current through his body and he doesn't feel a thing (or so he claims). In the video he puts a live wire to his tongue and another wire to a fan and the fan starts up and works. At the end of the video he holds a lightbulb and an electric skillet. The flips the switch, the lightbulb turns on, and an egg is fried on the skillet. He states that some people accused him of having some kind of implants in his hands that allowed him to do it but they tested them and there was nothing. the guy is an electrician of all things. He does seem to have a little bit of a spasm when the current first hits but he controls it. Or the whole video is a fake.

Step Back In Time With The Fallout Shelter Handbook
Some guy found an old Fallout Shelter handbook at an Arts Festival and has scanned a few of the pages and put them up on the web. The cover of the handbook shows your normal 50's family living underground in their normal clothes. Some of the advertisements that go with it include a geiger counter, an air pump system, an age chemical toilet, and a portable toilet stand. The movie, The Day After, portrays it somewhat differently after an attack which doesn't look at all like the cover of the Fallout shelter handbook.
Check out the full page scan of the fallout shelter handbook plus other pages inside it after the jump.Read More >>

Super Crazy Ninja Cup Stacking Kid For The Win In This Video
The kid in this video is possibly a secret disguised ninja as she captures the "cup stacking" world record in 7.43 seconds. Who knew there was a cup stacking record anyway. In any event, first she stacks up a large stack in the middle and two small stacks. After breaking those down she stacks two large stacks and breaks them down again. Finally she stacks one extra large stack in the middle. These are plastic drinking cups like you would buy in the store. Super crazy secret ninja or little kid? You decide.

Guy Builds A Lego Flamethrower And Tests It In His House For The Win
The latest Lego build is a video of a guy who built a flame thrower out of Legos. I'm not sure how much of a part the Legos actually play in the flame thrower. I assume he has some kind of trigger or rubber bands or some such that lets whatever he is using out of it's container. I don't see that there is any lighting mechanism so he probably just used a hand lighter. The Legos are mainly just the body and handle of the flame thrower. The best part (or worst part) about it is that he is testing the flame thrower inside the house. Is this guy a runner up for a Darwin award?

Guy Builds His Own Stonehenge Using Sticks And Rocks For A Good Time
Guy in this video is working on his own Stonehenge using only sticks and rocks. In the video his rolls a one ton rock along a specially designed wooden platform using only his hand. He shows how he uses a stone under a huge block of concrete to spin it around and how if he puts another stone under it he can move it with a lever system. In another video clip he moves an entire bard using this method. He takes a huge Stonehenge style block and drops it upright in a hole using some weights, rope, and sticks. In order to get the huge piece of rock high enough to drop it in he rocks it back and forth and sticks a stick in each side of the fulcrum after he rocks it. Reminds me of the Coral Castle guy in Florida. He puts the National Geographic (?) Easter Island guys who were doing something similar to shame though.

Video Of The Game Runner Video Game Treadmill Control Device
Here is a video of a treadmill which plugs into your computer and records the treadmill movement as forward movement in video games. This one is called Gamerunner and you run on the treadmill and then use a bike handle type device which is mounted on the front of the treadmill to move and fire. I have a similar product called a SimCycle which doesn't work very good for various reasons. The problems with the SimCycle were that it wasn't a real tension flywheel, your knees were always hitting the desk, and you would be winded but you couldn't stop (specifically in racing games) because if you did you'd lose the game. I'd say the Gamerunner is probably a better product then the SimCycle because you're standing up instead of sitting and you can hang on to the bike controller. Still the problem of getting winded though.
There is a review of the Gamerunner here and you can watch the video of the Gamerunner in action below or view it on the host site.Read More >>

Guy Roller Blades Down The Street And Plays Music On Wine Bottles
The guy in this video is on a blocked off city street in New York or San Francisco. There are a bunch of bottles lined up in front of him on either side. He is on roller blades and has ski polls. There is what looks like a spoon attached to the outside of each of his skates. As he skates between the win bottles the handles of the spoons hit the wine bottles and play a song as the guy skates down the street. I can't tell if the bottles are open and half empty (or all empty) to achieve the different tones or not.
