Capcom To Sell Fragrance Inspired By Resident Evil’s Deadly T-Virus

Regardless of how immersive a game or movie maybe, there’s always an element that is missing and that’s the smell. Imagine cutting through a horde of zombies and not knowing how the walking dead smells like is short of being immersive, well, if that’s your kind of thing… But apparently, Capcom, the legendary game company behind Resident Evil franchise, knew this and it will be releasing a limited edition fragrance at its Capcom Cafe (yes, it is a thing) in Saitama, Japan.

First It Was Dress Color. Now, The Internet Debates On Number Of Girls

Thanks to the Internet, debating is an everyday affair. Not too long ago, the Interweb argued about the color of a seemingly unassuming dress and today, people are throwing their two cents about how many girls are there in the above photo entitled “Same but different.” This photo was posted by photographer Tiziana Vergari as part of Instagram’s Weekend Hashtag Project with the topic on identity. At a glance, the image looks like girls sitting in an seemingly infinite row, but if you look closely, you will the row is not what it seems to be and so was the number of girls. You know, the wonderful thing about Internet is, you get to hear all sort of different answers and even theories that open our minds to the world of differing perceptions.

Who Would Have Thought A Jet Ski Could Take Out An Imaging Drone?

Even if an imaging drone is being used for a legit purpose, it doesn’t mean it is safe from being taken down, as proven by a recent incident involving a jet ski. You must be thinking, “how the heck a high flying drone can be brought down by a watercraft?” Well, the true is, it happened and the video below is the evidence. The footage, uploaded by New Zealand-based surf filmmaker Guy Mac, was captured at the Yamaha New Zealand Festival of Freeride 2016 held sometime in late February. The clip shows the jet ski rider doing his thing choppy waters and at one point, hits a big one that ejects man and machine high up in the air.

Woman Caught Driving A Lincoln With A 15-Foot Tree “Hood Ornament”

We usually don’t do this, but this ‘news’ here is so hilarious that it would be a crime not to share. Anyways, as we all know, police serves the community and as they go about doing that, they often witness many weird happenings and this case was one of them. This happened in Illinois, U.S. back in January 23, when a police officer on patrol pulled over a woman driving a Lincoln Town Car with an unusual “hood ornament” – a real tree that stands roughly 15 feet tall. The tree was not actually on the hood; it was lodged in the front grill and from what we see, it was angled in such a way that the bottom was well inside the engine bay.

Aquarium Backpack Lets You Take Your Pet Fishes For A Walk

Unlike regular pets like chameleons, dogs, cats and such, fishes are relegate to fish tank, which obviously, you can’t bring it out.

As the product name implies, it is an aquarium in a backpack, which means it is totally transparent with exception of the seams and comes with adjustable, padded shoulder strap to wear it on your back.

This ‘System’ Discretely Turns Pee Into Drinking Water Anytime, Anywhere

So you think Amazon sells some of the weirdest stuff on the Internet? Well, wait till you read about what Etsy seller Ultra Violet Production House has to offer: a concealed urine-to-drinking water conversion kit. UV Production House touts itself as a store that “provides customers with high quality sculpture materials and fabrication guidance for all original works.” That being said, we are not even sure if the Discrete Urine-to-Drinking Water Conversion System, as it is called, is just a work of art or a real working thing, given the lack of information on the product page. Continue reading This ‘System’ Discretely Turns Pee Into Drinking Water Anytime, Anywhere

Thanks To MacBook Selfie Stick, Selfie Using MacBook Is A Possibility

Well, actually, you can’t. I mean the MacBook Selfie Stick is a real thing, but in a way, it is not. You see, this weird product is actually an art project by trio Moises, Joh Yuyi, and Tom Galle, which means it ain’t available as a product your money can buy. It’s as weird as it is interesting, though we do find a little sarcasm in it. Like kind of mocking the whole narcissistic pop culture we are experiencing today. Anyways, a little about this in-your-face selfie stick. It is like any regular size selfie stick, except that it is significantly thicker to handle the weight of a laptop. Continue reading Thanks To MacBook Selfie Stick, Selfie Using MacBook Is A Possibility

RC Wheelie Bin AKA Trash Can Lets You Remotely Wheel It Out To The Roadside

When not turning regular vehicles into crazy fire-spewing machines, Colin Furze found himself creating something far less dangerous but no less weird. This time, he converted a trash can aka wheelie bin into one that can be remotely controlled so he don’t need to brave the frigid weather to put it at the roadside for the rubbish collector to be emptied. A rather brilliant DIY it maybe, but not necessary practical since what he did was transplanting an electric wheelchair into the bin which took away some usable space and that’s not to mention, the conversion also bumped up the weight (there are lead-acid batteries in there and so…).

The Fury Of Mother Nature Sends Scottish Waterfalls Back Up To The Top of The Cliff

Mother Nature has proven itself, time and time again, what she is capable of and the Storm Henry that hits the Isle of Mull of Scotland is yet another prove of her prowess. As the usually serene coastal region is being pounded by extreme weather, gale force winds hitting the southwest of the island forces the waterfalls to go back to where it came from: the top of the cliffs over Loch Scridain – effectively turning waterfalls into ‘waterups’. The nature’s wrath was caught in act in a short clip posted by Isle of Mull Cottages and the sight was extremely surreal. Continue reading The Fury Of Mother Nature Sends Scottish Waterfalls Back Up To The Top of The Cliff

Sake-Flavored Kit Kat Gives A Us A Good Reason To Have A Break

In other parts of the world, people eat strange stuff like maggots, termites and stuff. While the Japanese are not all into those exotics, they are quite famous for regular food or snacks with a twist, like for example, chocolate fries. Speaking of Japan and food/snacks with a twist, Kit Kat is perhaps one with the most out-of-the-ordinary flavors. As of now, there are no less than 15 flavors, which includes Strawberry Cheesecake, Wasabi, Pear, Cinnamon Cookie, Edamame Soybean, Purple Sweet Potato, and even Hot Japanese Chili – just to name a few. And now, the “kitty Katsu” has another odd flavor to add to the list: Japanese Sake. Continue reading Sake-Flavored Kit Kat Gives A Us A Good Reason To Have A Break
