Tamagotchi, the digital pet that took the world by storm (well, kind of) was released 21 years ago in Japan and 20 years ago, in 1997, to the rest of the world. I am not sure the allure of this virtual pet thing, but it was somewhat a huge hit two decades ago. At least it was huge enough that even my ex-girlfriend had one (which I need help to take care, btw). Anyways, to mark the 20th year, Bandai Namco is not only re-releasing an updated Tamagotchi, but it is also going the mobile route with a smartphone and tablet app version called My Tamagotchi Forever. Well, forever only if you keep a look out for it cos’ while on the mobile platform, this digital pet of yours will still need to be fed, bathed, and loved, or it will say sayonara to you.

Today we want to share a disturbing look into the future of biotechnology or as some would call it, bio-hack. However, before run away in fear (or disgust), you have to know that it isn’t real. And to be honest, we thank god it isn’t. Anyways, the thing we want to tell you about is Project Oscar: The Modular Body. Noticed we put them in Italic? That’s because it was a fictional creation, a 56-video series about a disturbing project which involved 3D-printed modular body that can snap together like LEGO elements and powered by a battery pack. Continue reading Oscar Is Modular, Lab-created ‘Human’ And We Are Glad It Isn’t Real
Every year, Internet celebrities Jesse Wellens and Casey Neistat will make a video to mark the year’s Halloween. This year is no different. And if anything, I think this year’s Halloween Levitating Star Wars Speeder Bike should be one of the most memorable because, Speeder Bike. For Halloween 2017, Jesse Wellens and model Carmella Rose dressed up as Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia, and played out Battle of Endor on the streets of New York City. The pair cruised around NYC on a custom made Speeder Bike as seen on Star Wars: The Return of the Jedi. Continue reading Watch Luke Skywalker And Princess Leia Cruises NYC On A Speeder Bike
Been to a carnival? Good. Now, if you felt carnival games are a little scammy. Well, the good news is, you are not wrong. I mean, seriously, you didn’t think that could have it this easy, did you? Paying some loose change and you’d get guarantee yourself a big-ass plushy to impress your girl? That would be too easy.

And the event that you did win, you’d be overpaying for the perceived “expensive” plushy. Continue reading You’ve Always Felt Carnival Games Are Scammy, Now One Guy Prove That It Is
Oh. You weren’t invited to the China’s 19th CPC National Congress? Oh, what ashamed. But I am sure if you are in China, you would have tuned in and watched the monotone speech given by China’s incumbent President Xi Jinping which went on for an excruciating three hours and twenty three minutes. We are not a political website, btw, nor are we pro-China, and therefore, we shall refrain from touching on what was the speech was about. But as you have come to expect from a speech of this nature, it was appropriately interjected by enthusiastic applause from the floor. Continue reading There Is A Mobile Game That Lets You Clap For China’s President. Yes, Really.
Yup. Apparently, the much anticipated world’s first mech robot battle has happened. It was conducted in private, without spectators, due to safety concerns, at an abandoned steel warehouse in Japan. When the challenged was issued by the American’s MegaBots team, the Japanese’s Kurata built by Suidobashi Heavy Industry has all but one condition: the battle will be strictly a melee battle. That’s right. No projectile firing weapons. It is just the good’ol hand-to-hand robot fight. The U.S. team accepted the condition, but their Mk.II at that time wasn’t rigged for an all-out brawl and so, the team set out to build the third generation Mk MegaBot, the Mk.III Eagle Prime, which the team took to Kickstarter to pull in funds for the build.

Ninja was a covert agent (but more like mercenary, really) in feudal Japan who have been depicted in numerous movies and TV series. On screens, ninja are often depicted as skilled, elusive, and stealthy force, who are often loaded with gadgets and does disappearing act. In some way, Batman is very similar to a ninja and therefore, it kind of make sense for Warner Bros. Japan to come up with an animated feature called Batman Ninja. Yep. That’s right. The Bat has gone Japanese. Though we are not sure if the Bat will be played by a Japanese version of Bruce Wayne, or it is just Wayne-san in medieval Japan, as a ninja. Continue reading Batman As A Ninja Is Totally The Right Thing To Do

Holy shit. Thirty years? Already? Wow. Time really does fly. I fondly remember listening to Def Leppard, which was arguably one the biggest rock act of the 90s, when I was in my late teens. But that was before I became obsessed with Slayer and Sepultura, that is. Anywho, the British rock band Def Leppard is marking 30 years of the band’s seminal album Hysteria by releasing a 30th Anniversary Multi-Format Anniversary Edition Hysteria (Remastered 2017).
