Coca-Cola Selfie Bottle Automatically Takes A Selfie As You Drink

Following Coca-Cola Japan’s novel gifting idea, we again stumble upon another Coca-Cola gold and this time, it is all about selfie. Coca-Cola Israel and Tel Aviv-based creative agency Gefen teamed up together to introduce limited edition bottles that come outfitted with a special base that automatically takes a mid-sip selfie as you down the world’s famous carbonated soft drink. On top of the regular-looking Coca-Cola bottle, the Coca-Cola Selfie Bottle features a special molded base with a protruding section that has an upward-facing camera which will snap an image when tilted at a certain angle. It is not known if the camera will be triggered if you merely tilt the bottle without drinking, or is smart enough to know you are actually drinking.

This Is How Much It Would Cost To Build And Fly The Millennium Falcon

So, Imperial sympathizers know how much it takes to built and operate an AT-AT necessary for their galaxy domination and you, as a Rebel Alliance supporter, or should I say, mercenary, will need to know how much it is to built and fly a Millennium Falcon that will make the Kessel Run in 12 Parsecs. Obviously, to built and fly a Millennium Falcon is far from cheap but unlike AT-AT or the Death Star, at least it has no known obvious weaknesses and it is totally practical with pluses like the ability to carry loads of cargo while going at speeds and it even has hidden compartments to help evade enemy searches in the event you managed to get yourself into that situation.

Coca-Cola’s X’mas Edition Bottles Have A Secret That Makes Them Gift-worthy

A bottle of Coca-Cola is probably not the best of gift ideas, but the marketing team over at Coca-Cola Japan came up with a brilliant idea that may just make bottles of Coca-Cola gift-worthy. The secret lies in the seemingly nondescript Christmas-themed label. With just a few steps, the label actually turns into a gift ribbon. It is an idea that’s as simple as it is mind-blowing. Really. Ok, maybe it is not mind-blowing, but it does put a smile on my face. It is one of those marketing campaign that makes you feel good which kind of makes the campaign a success? Maybe.

Someone Puts Amazon Alexa Into Big Mouth Billy Bass And Future Is Written

You know what was the weirdest thing on Internet this week? A talking fish. Ok. It is not a real fish, but that does not make it any less weird. According to The Verge, a developer by the name of Brian Kane pulled off a hack that turn Big Mouth Billy Bass from a singing animatronic fish into one that spits out Alexa’s response when you asked a question. How’s that for weird? Not weird, you say? Well, then we suggest you take a look at Big Mouth Billy Bass’ reassigned job as Alexa mouthpiece in the embedded video below and tell me differently.

Drone Shot Down By Angry Farmer, Camera Survived To Tell The Tale

Another day, another news of a drone being shot down and this time, a seemingly innocent flight to get a shot of a picturesque English countryside got abruptly terminated by an angry farmer who was obviously not very amused by this flying intruder. For some reason, the farmer seems to be armed at the point in time. Perhaps, he had already heard the family buzzing of the drone and as you can see from the video embedded below, the farmer, who was dressed in long sleeve and vest, can be seen half running towards to his ‘target’, quickly took aim (but not before he angrily threw his hat to the side to reinforce the notion that his outright pissed with the uninvited guest) and without hesitation, squeezed the trigger and took down the drone with one shot.

A Drone With An Angel Of Death In Tow Is Some Scary But Awesome Shit

My advice is, don’t dress up as Death this Halloween. Why? Because someone already did and we must say, he was pretty damn good at it. How? He flew, way up above like he should in the first place and not walking with his feet cos’ Death has none of those. Ok, technically, the man, an uncle of Twitter user crüger, did not flew in a Death costume but he did create an Angel of Death which he hooked up to a drone and flew it around his neighborhood. Needless to say, this “real-life” (kind of ironic for me to say that, isn’t it?) Angel of Death probably scares the shit out of some folks who were unfortunate enough to look up at the wrong time.

Modder Wins As YouTube Unblocked GTA V Galaxy Note 7 Bomb Mod Video

Remember the hilarious game mod that turns the Stick Bomb in GTA V into a Galaxy Note 7? Yes. That video. The video wouldn’t have drawn much attention of the Internet if not for the take down notice by YouTube filed by Samsung Electronics America. The incident goes to show how petty Samsung is amidst what-could-be the tech blunder of the decade. As mentioned in a post last week, Samsung wasn’t amused a bit and had abused YouTube’s reporting tool for infringement materials to prevent others from watching this clear-as-day parody video.

Clearly, Samsung Is Not Amused By GTA V Galaxy Note 7 Bomb Mod

Since the fiasco of the exploding Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and the subsequent failed replacement, the Galaxy Note 7 has been the victim of a barrage of Internet memes with hilarity that could rival Kanye West sleeping meme which, you may recall, took the Internet by storm back in February. The Internet sure knows how to rub it in and if we may say so ourselves, pretty damn good at it too. While Internet memes provided us with much fun at the expense of someone else’s misery, one Grand Theft Auto V modder’s poke at the whole Samsung boohoo takes the biscuit.

Diver Had A Close Call When A Great White Breaches Shark Cage He Was In

Some people akin swimming with sharks to thrill rides. Particularly if one is getting up close and personal with the top predator of the open water: the Great White. Obviously, it is not the brightest idea to be swimming alongside the fearsome predator and so, a shark cage is the safest way to go, or is it? As young YouTuber Gabe and Garrett’s dad can tell you, shark cage is not as safe as you think. During a trip to Guadalupe Island, the father of two caught on camera a spectacular incident of a Great White breaching the cage while a diver was inside.
