    ‘Öctagon': New Experimental Skate Video From Carhartt WIP (Video)

    Outsiders might think that a skate video simply entails pointing a cheap camcorder at a bunch of skateboarders and calling it a day. But the people at Carhartt WIP have enlisted director Joaquim Bayle and brand-sponsored skaters Sylvain Tognelli, Bram De Cleen and Joseph Biais to prove that thinking dead wrong with Öctagon, now available for viewing on […]

    Pixelkabinett 42 Arcade Machine

    If you’re sick of depending on your computer or (even worse) your smartphone for your classic video game playing, there’s a solution that’s short of actually acquiring or restoring a genuine old-school arcade cabinet. It’s the Pixelkabinett 42, a new limited edition arcade machine from Love Hulten. The Pixelkabinett 42 is handsomely constructed ash and […]

    Brazilian Game Show Includes Sexy Game of ‘Twister’ (Video)

    Man, it looks like at some point Brazil leaped way ahead of the rest of the world in a very important field: Game shows. I’m basing this opinion not on many years worth of researching TV game shows, but on a three and a half minute clip of two sexy Brazilian women playing Twister on […]

    ‘Jetman Dubai': Dubai Toured Via Jetpacks (Video)

    I’m not sure exactly when this happened, but apparently there was some huge leap forward in jetpack technology when I wasn’t paying attention, and now videos like Jetman Dubai exist.

    OlegCricket Posts Insane High-Altitude Parkour Run (Video)

    Parkour has become a punchline thanks to its goofy name and brief run as a fad for teenagers, but apparently there’s actually some legit stuff going on in the parkour landscape.
