Elysium Star II Mission Is Essentially Space Travel For The Dead

The ticket for the near future space travel is exorbitant, but that does not mean it will be out-of-reach, or at least it won’t be out-of-reach for the dead because a California-based company, Elysium Space, is providing a service that will see the remains of a loved one rocketing to celestial level, like quite literally. In other words, Elysium Space is a space-age funeral service of sort. The company calls it a memorial spaceflight and so, it is not quite a funeral, but really, as the name implies, a memorial service that offers a loved one who have passed on a chance to travel to space.

Here Are Some Pretty Crazy Stuff Airport Security Have Found

Air travel, while convenient, is a risky business. On one hand, travelers are at the mercy of pilots competency, weather threats, and hardware issues and on the other hand, there are mentally unsound fellow travelers and terrorists to worry about. While other bodies worked to improved on the safety aspect of the former, the responsibility of addressing the latter rest squarely on the shoulders of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) of the various airports. I know many travelers view TSA as more of a hassle than good. But hey, if the hassle can bump up the safety aspect with regards to dangerous materials onboard, we are fine by the hassle.

This Flying Butterfly Makes Physical Greeting Card Valid Once Again

In this digital age, is there still room for greeting cards? Probably, but greeting card’s relevance is diminishing. Except for the lack of tactile feel, what physical greeting card can do, can be achieved by a hassle-free digital card. At least, that’s my line of thought, until I came across The Magic Flying Butterfly. While some cards feature pop-ups to delight the recipient, this butterfly thing takes a step further: it sends a craft butterfly soaring into the air – up to 20 feet (about 6 meters), we heard, once the recipient opens the card. Now, that’s a surprise that will probably send hearts racing, but mostly because of a pleasant surprise (tho not if butterfly is monster to them).

Infographic: Why Collectors Still love Vintage Coca-Cola Ads Today

Said ad involving a Miss Jenner successfully diffusing a protest by offering a police offer a Pepsi, was swiftly pulled from circulation amid cries that it was tone deaf. This inspired us to do a little digging. Turns out Pepsi’s competitor Coca-Cola has been taking a strong stance on political issues for decades. Below are a few of our favorite successful campaigns.

Would Trust Your Fingers To A Robot In A Knife Game Of Five-Finger Fillet?

Robots are precise. I get it, but would you entrust your hand’s wellbeing to a robot’s precision? Specifically in a game of five-finger fillet and with a real knife? I don’t know. I probably wouldn’t. YouTuber Irfon Automation, however, seems to had a lot of faith in robots and in his case, a Staubli TX40 Robot and of course, what he claims as his talent for programming that enable this trusty (or not?) metal arm to do passes of five-finger fillet. Ok. Maybe, whether or not, Irfon Automation had a shit load of confidence doesn’t matter, because the hand on the table wasn’t his anyways. It appears that his neighbor had volunteered and so, I am guessing his neighbor was the one that had shit lot of faith in him (and little yellow armed Staubli there).

Razer’s CEO Asked How Razer Chroma Frap Might Look Like, Here’s Our Take

You know all the fad about Starbucks’ newest seasonal drink, the Unicorn Frappuccino. I am sure you also read about how it is “not as advertized,” but we are not going talk about how it is, or it is not “as advertized.” We are at it because about a day ago, Razer’s CEO posted a question on his Facebook page. He commented that since Starbucks has their Unicorn frap, he wonder what would a Chroma frap from Razer look like?

The World’s Blackest Substance Has Met Its Match And It’s Called Black 2.0

You may have heard the buzz over VantaBlack, supposedly the blackest black substance in existence created by Surrey NanoSystems. Apparently (and also obviously) VantaBlack is a chemical which means if, for some reason, you want a dose of it, you will need to acquire a government export license to get it out of UK and if you are in the UK, cost might be an issue, or so we heard, and even if weren’t you’d be questioned on why do you need the foul smelling substance for. Surely, if you just want to paint something black, you won’t want it to smell like chemicals, do you? Continue reading The World’s Blackest Substance Has Met Its Match And It’s Called Black 2.0

You Can Now Make 2018 Ford Mustang Exhaust Note As Your Ringtone

Already high over the upcoming 2018 Ford Mustang? Well, I believe Ford knows some of you do and has had its engineers to record the growling exhaust note and turn it into a ringtone for your smartphone. However, unlike the “Active Valve Performance Exhaust” found as an option on the 5L V8-equipped 2018 Ford Mustang GT, which offers driver four exhaust note options, the exhaust note you will be getting will be just the one produced when “track” driving mode is selected. Makes sense. If you want consumers to feel the power, you’d pull the craziest mode, right? Continue reading You Can Now Make 2018 Ford Mustang Exhaust Note As Your Ringtone
