Get a life-size whale on your monitor. It comes with a handy you are here marker so you know where on the whale you are. Navigate around the whale, or let it swim across your monitor.

Carnegie Mellon’s Spring Carnival was over the weekend. The big thing for a lot of returning alumni is sweepstakes, which feature buggy races.

Buggies are like torpedoes on wheels; and are driven by a really, really small person inside it.

Here’s two clips of buggies rounding the chute after the freeroll portion of the course:

Really cool Glow Brick night light: it has an embedded phosporescent bulb that you let charge in natural light during the day, and it later quietly glows the night away.

Always on the cutting edge of public personal hygiene, Aberdeen City across the pond is considering deploying battalions of remote-controlled stealth cyberloos disguised as manhole covers but capable of rising from the pavement in seconds and devouring up to three urinating Scotsmen in one vicious attack.

AWOL (Alcohol WithOut Liquid) has been scaled down now as a small, personal, portable device.

The AWOL device works by vaporizing the alcohol with oxygen or compressed air, and the booze-cloud is then inhaled.

Meanwhile, our fun-loving state representatives are trying to outlaw this machine in favor of public urination.
