Roll Me Down the Hill: Concrete Pipe Cabins

When you travel do you like to sleep in a nice hotel that you booked weeks in advance or do you just wing it on a park bench? I’d like to think I’m adventurous enough to just go for it and sleep wherever I drop but I know I’m not. A bizarre hotel made from …

Cleverly Done: Subway Hair-Product Ad

Here’s a pretty clever ad for hair products by Apotek Hjärtat that they’re calling “Blowing in The Wind.” The idea is a video ad of a lady who must have been using their products having her hair blown in the wind of a passing train. Yes, that would be pretty boring and commonplace if it …

Still Looks Questionable: Video of Worlds Tallest Waterslide

You’ve probably already heard about the new World’s Tallest Waterslide that is opening at the Kansas City Schlitterbahn this Memorial Day. But now there’s a, kind of cryptic, video. It’s one of those videos show with a remote control quadro-copter so you don’t get to see them throwing crash test dummies down the slide or …

Looks Dangerous: One Wheel Skateboard

Looks exciting, I know. The Onewheel – Self-Balancing Electric Skateboard is currently smashing funding goals on its Kickstarter project. What the project breaks down to is smaller pieces a board with one big wheel in the middle that hides a motor and some sort of self balancing magic technology that allows you to actually ride …

Uncomfortable: No Pants Subway Ride

A flash mob in New York in 2002 has turned into a tradition spanning the globe. Every year people strip down to ride the subway. As far as I can tell they’re not demonstrating anything, except maybe the global hatred of pants. Or possibly some sort of group affinity to having public transportation filth touch …

Want: Tiny Segway Thing

Ever since I first heard about the Segway back in 2001 I’ve wanted one. The problem in getting one has been that they cost more than all the cars I’ve ever own combined. I just can’t justify the purchase. So for now, no Geek Chariot for me. Created by the company of the same name …

Might Learn Something: Shipping Map of the 19th Century

Back in the 1800’s you didn’t have airplanes to transport your Mountain Dew Cheetos around the world for you. You were required to wait months while ships brought them to you only for them to arrive horribly smashed and stale. But that’s besides the point here. Ben Schmidt created a map of 19th century shipping …

Finally: An Adjustable Airplane Seat

If you’ve ever flown on a commercial airplane you know there are some problems that need to be addressed and never will be. Those problems are fat people and tall people. Being quite tall and fairly hefty myself I’m hopeful that never is coming soon. I’m tired of riding with my knees against the seat …

This is Not Okay: Doll Head Wearing Monkeys

As if monkeys aren’t uncanny enough by themselves, some people in Jakarta Indonesia are training monkeys to wear doll heads and clothing while they beg for money from tourists. I guess the idea is that if the moneys look like children then people will be more likely to give them money instead of chunks of …

I Would Ride That: Train Carrying Plane

This is the Horizon Modular Airplane System. The idea is an entirely electric mass transport system that consists of train cars carrying people and a giant plane carrying those train cars. This is the best mass transport I’ve seen since the three-man canoe. Guided by magnetic rails, akin to those of maglev trains, The Horizon …
