The BlackBerry Empathy Concept

We have seen BlackBerry concept designs before, but this concept may take away our need for BBM emoticons, forever. The Empathy pairs with a biometrics ring to send the user's emothional data to the crystal like device. The concept device was designed by Kiki Tang and Daniel Yoon for a RIM sponsored project at the Art Center College of Design. One of the designers describes the interface as follows:

A Huge Mushroom

This fungus is grown in the UK and it hardly fits into the mushroom picker's basket. For size, it has a diameter of 45 centimeters and weighs about 2.5 pounds. That’s a godsend for the person who found it.

Illegal Baby Names

This week the Pope declared war on parents naming babies after celebrities, fruit or popular sports cars. In an address to parents, the ever-progressive pontiff pleaded with worshipers to 'give your children names that are in the Christian calendar'. So Apple, Brooklyn and Ferrari are out, Francisco and Giulia are in. But Benedict's not the only authority figure to stamp down on one of the sillier by-products of celebrity culture. The following names have all been banned around the world for reasons of taste, decency or just plain daftness.

Car Transformation

It was a 1987 Pontiac Fiero that cost $60 and it was supposed to be converted into a Lamborghini Reventon. I have no idea what it will look like at the end, because it’s not ready yet. A real Lamborghini Reventon is the one in the last photo.

Amazing Food Art

Beautiful sculptures made out of everyday food items, these artists have some serious talent.

World's Most Disgusting Food

We all love to see something weird, odd, and of course the bizarre sometimes. I think that everyone loves top ten lists, so here you have it lists of the wild, weird, and even sometimes the gross. As I was preparing to write this article today, I got a bit hungry and thought why not see what others eat. I typed in Weird Food and here is just a sampling of some of the foods that came up. These are the top ten on the grossness meter for us….

Pizza, anyone?
Words cannot express my horror on this one…

Woman Fakes Own Kidnapping

A few months back a study on a dating website revealed Spanish women to be the best at the art of flirting while American women ranked second to last. Well, Spanish women are back in the news once again and this time they get the distinct honor of being the craziest kind of spouse you could hope for.
(Yes, I am basing this sweeping generalization on one solitary woman in Spain.)

Aftermath Of The Chernobyl Disaster

The disaster occurred on 26th April 1986, a nuclear accident at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in Ukraine. An explosion and fire released large quantities of radioactive contamination into the atmosphere, which spread over much of Western USSR and Europe. It is considered the worst nuclear power plant accident in history, and is one of only two classified as a level 7 event on the International Nuclear Event Scale (the other being the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster). The battle to contain the contamination and avert a greater catastrophe ultimately involved over 500,000 workers and cost an estimated 18 billion rubles, crippling the Soviet economy. The following photos show what's left of Chernobyl at present.

Cars That Fizzled In 2011 (US)

2011 has had some notable high-profile flops: American Airlines, Coke's white can, numerous Republican presidential candidates, the Boston Red Sox. More than a few automakers can add their names to the list. In a year when U.S. car sales staged a modest recovery, a number of nameplates with high expectations wilted in the showroom. One of them gets the most ignominious distinction of being a bust — we'll get to that, but first see the slideshow of ten other cars worthy of dishonorable mention.

Underclothes To Protest TSA X-Ray Scanners

If you don’t like the idea of the introduction of TSA X-ray scanners in airports, you can protest with these underwear and undershirts with 4th Amendment metallic ink-prints.

As The Bubble Bursts

Very interesting high speed photography of bursting soap bubble!
