BATMETAL

Monday, July 28th, 2014

This video combines two of my favorite entertainment forces, Batman and Dethklok, into a fusion of metal and vigilantism. Fair warning, it’s a bit weird.

Kryptek Is Now Doing The Dew

Monday, July 14th, 2014

20140714-085442.jpg

I was ‘out and about’ last night, and I happened to spot these ‘Limited Edition Kryptek Military Heroes Pack’ boxes of Mountain Dew. Reportedly, only the boxes get the camo, not the cans. You can pick these up anywhere they sell Mountain Dew.

The Cash Cannon

Saturday, July 12th, 2014

TheCashCannon_529406be20ac7

Since I feel obligated to post any gun shaped projectile devices I can possibly find, I figured the Cash Cannon fulfills said obligation. Made from ABS plastic, the Cash Cannon can be loaded with US Dollar bills or any item similar in size and structure, and with a pull of a trigger shoots them out rapidly. If anything else, it’s a novel way to “make it rain”.

It’s not about keeping it cold, it’s about keeping it cool.

- Bob Bullion

Manta, the company behind the weapon covers utilized by the US Marine Corps for the M27 IAR, will soon be releasing a beer cozy made from their proprietary polymer in a similar style to their suppressor cover. They’ll come in a variety of colors, including glow-in-the-dark and ‘temperature-based color change’ variants. Stay tuned for more info as it becomes available.

Gost Barefoot is a German company that makes what can be described as chainmail minimalist shoes. The PaleoBarefoot series is made from stainless steel chainmail. The shoes are built for strolling, light hiking, and walking on natural surfaces and in water. For more ‘urban’ environments, they also sell “Multi-Paws”, attachable soft sole spots based on animal paws that provide grip on smooth and paved surfaces.

Snake Plissken’s Escape

Tuesday, April 8th, 2014

Snake Plissken’s ESCAPE – Video game pre-production milestone video from Neurobellum on Vimeo.

This footage is (thankfully) all that remains of ‘Snake Plissken’s Escape’, a video game that was to be published by Namco and released back in 2005. Developed by the remaining ‘Dead to Rights 2′ staff, the game would have featured a storyline approved by Carpenter, Russell, and Hill and a full body scan of Russell for the titular character. The developer’s influence is obvious when compared to their previous work, ‘Dead to Rights 2′: acrobatic gunplay with dual wielding and slow motion, which frankly seems a bit beyond Snake’s demonstrated capabilities.

Old World Collectables And Creations – Bullet Chess

Wednesday, March 26th, 2014

il_570xN.566606860_d9b5

Admittedly, this isn’t my first time covering OWCC’s Bullet Chess offerings, although they’ve greatly expanded their product line since I last wrote about them. New offerings include mini chess sets, shotshell checkers, and even .50 caliber backgammon. My personal favorite has to be the NATO vs SOVIET (Warsaw Pact) set above, which features demilled cartridges largely utilized by the two military alliances as the pieces.

Deep within the bowels of Red Storm Entertainment, a new system for delivering fresh, new coffee was recently installed. For the sake of educating their employee populace, this educational tutorial video was created, and Red Storm was kind enough to share it with the rest of the world.

Christmas Tinner

Friday, December 6th, 2013

630x

So, remember the 12-Course Meal in a Can that was featured on the site awhile ago? Well, UK-based video game retailer GAME is currently offering its own iteration, the Christmas Tinner, only with 9 layers. It’s currently being tested at the company’s Basingstoke store, and with any luck it will never be introduced past that location, much less the UK’s borders.

North Korean Camouflage In Action

Thursday, October 31st, 2013

ku-bigpic

This and other images of NK camouflage popped up on 2ch, Japan’s largest image board. This particular pattern is a “duck hunter” camo based on a Chinese pattern. Not all of their uniforms are this revealing, however. They also field a uniform with a pattern very similar to US Woodland BDUs for their special forces troops, and a few other odds and ends.

.375 Caliber Bullet Space Pen

Thursday, October 24th, 2013

51Fh5EduIIS._SL1500_

The .375 Caliber Bullet Space Pen uses a .375 H&H Magnum shell as a cap combined with a Fisher space pen. The pen is designed to fit into the case, writing side out, for a “…balanced and sturdy writing instrument.”

For those unfamiliar with the concept of a space pen, it utilizes thixotropic ink and a pressurized chamber that allows the pen to be used upside down, underwater, on oil and grease, and in temperature ranges from -30F/-35C to 250F/121C.
