Looking for a Christmas present for the geek who has everything? How about this - a detailed 1:18 scale model of the Delorean from the Back to the Future movies, which is also a 500GB hard drive?

The $250 cars-shaped hard drive features gull wing doors an opening bonnet and even a replica of the reactor needed for time travel. It simply plugs into your PC's USB socket and you can utilise the Seagate storage hidden within.

Dave Hersch of US company Flash Rods says: "After four years of engineering, it's finally out and worth the wait. This is one of the coolest hard drive cars we have ever made. It would be hard to have more fun than this rolling around your desk top."

A Pink Barbie bug

A pink katydid is seen in this photograph by Carol Freeman. Its unusual colour is the result of a genetic mutation known as erythrism, similar to the recessive gene that afflicts albino animals

Peek-a-boo! Look through closed doors!

You probably don't spend much time thinking about door knobs, or how they could be improved.

Maybe you should! This glass globe lets you catch a glimpse of what's going on in the room you're about to enter.

In the place where great design meets voyeurism is Hideyuki Nakayama’s “A Room in the Glass Globe.”

The hazy image of what lies in the room beyond is a bit nightmarish for those who value privacy, but a great addition to an already naked household and definitely a step up in the world for the often-overlooked and under-appreciated doorknob

Star Wars condoms

Protect your “lightsaber” from unplanned pregnancies, STDs, and unruly wookiees with the help of a Darth Vader-themed condom.

Remember, Jedis, the Force won’t protect you from a one-night stand with a gold-digging alien after a booze-infused happy hour at the Mos Eisley Cantina.

Maths Teacher does Hallowe'en


Biola University professor Matt Weathers makes math more fun than writing “Hello Boobs” on a calculator with his annual tricky treats-filled Halloween presentation.

Sign spotting at Sanity Rally

An estimated 40 million people (10,000 really) descended on Washington D.C. Saturday afternoon to rally for sanity with Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert.

The Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear attracted sign-wielding Americans (and a handful of lost Canadians) from around the country in what was likely a big boost for the poster board and Sharpie industries (score one point for economic stimulation!).

The signs varied from the serious to the silly to the downright confusing and probably written while drunk.
