Lenovo Tapes

This guy ran into some test tapes from a Lenovo research facility (the company that took over the IBM Thinkpad).

He saw some amazing stuff going on there and posted some of the highlights that he ran across.

Among the footage that he has on his site is a laptop that automatically protects itself a split second before a liquid is spilled on it and a laptop that saves itself when it is dropped (by quickly turning on these built in fans and hovering in mid air)!

Check out the awesome video clips on his site...

(even if these aren't real they are pretty cool ideas)

Are You Autistic?

This short test was developed to measure the extent of autistic traits in adults.

The average score in the control group was 16.4 and eighty percent of those diagnosed with autism or a related disorder scored 32 or higher.

I'm proud to say that I scored a 27!

I knew all along that I'm more autistic than normal :)

Let me know how you did...

I'm an excellent driver, an excellent driver.

Pimp My Rim

Forget those spinner rims for your ride, you gotta go with these cool color LED rims.

These rims let you display a digital image on your rims while you drive and you can even change the image that is displayed while you are driving!

You can see them in action in this video...

The Selk'bag

I know someone who would enjoy this sleeping-bag/jacket:

If you plan on going somewhere cold and don't mind walking around all day in a sleeping bag (or maybe you are a narcoleptic) then you can actually buy this thing.

"That's hot!"

Real Simpsons Intro

Sorry I've been posting a lot of videos lately but I just can't help myself, I keep running into cool videos.

This time it's a video of a real-life version of the Simpsons intro.

Somebody redid the entire intro using real people and real scenery.

Very accurately done (aside from the car Maggie is "driving" where the steering wheel is on the right instead of the side).
