Peter Capaldi is rocking as the Twelfth Doctor, but it’s okay if the Eleventh Doctor is still near and dear to your heart. You can keep a piece of Matt Smith’s time on Doctor Who with you by wearing this Eleventh Doctor cosplay capelet from Darling Army. It’s made from woolblend suiting fabric and has a burgundy tie. The capelet is ready to ship, and one size fits most.

This steampunk prosthetic leg is the incredible design of Christopher Snell who specializes in making all kinds of prosthetics. This one is not one you’ll likely see every day, and features whirring steampunk gears with wood and brass accents that make it look like it’s doing all the work to propel itself. It’s quite a work of art!

Hey mind giving me a hand? How about 12 hands? Thanks to these new Finger Hands, it’s entirely possible to upgrade your high fives into high 30s. These little vinyl finger hands are 2-3/4 inches tall, and they come in a set of five. Sure, they look a little creepy, but just imagine how much you could get accomplished in a day if you had 12 hands? The world could be yours!

Check out some more pics of other ways you can use the Finger Hands…

daryl poncho scarf

So, you’ve survived the initial onslaught of the zombie invasion. Congratulations! Now, the next step is to build up a tough image–you know, establish a the-apocalypse-is-actually-fun-for-me look. You can go with tire armor or a multi-colored mohawk, but personally, I’d go with this Daryl Infinity Scarf.

Then again, the design might look more badass as a poncho. It works either way.

This scarf is made from 100 percent polyester, and one size fits all.

Date rape drugs are a problem faced by men and women all over. Detecting whether a drink has been doctored with drugs like Rohyphnol and GHB can be almost impossible, but one undergraduate team at North Carolina State University is working on a product that could help. Undercover Colors is a nail polish that changes color if it comes into contact with either of the two date rape drugs mentioned above. All you have to do to test a drink is dip a finger into the liquid. They’re currently in the research and development stage and accepting donations. From the Undercover Colors Facebook page:

In the U.S., 18% of women will be sexually assaulted in their lifetime. That’s almost one out of every five women in our country. We may not know who they are, but these women are not faceless. They are our daughters, they are our girlfriends, and they are our friends.

While date rape drugs are often used to facilitate sexual assault, very little science exists for their detection. Our goal is to invent technologies that empower women to protect themselves from this heinous and quietly pervasive crime.

For our first product, we are developing a nail polish that changes color when it comes in contact with date rape drugs such as Rohypnol, Xanax, and GHB. With our nail polish, any woman will be empowered to discreetly ensure her safety by simply stirring her drink with her finger. If her nail polish changes color, she’ll know that something is wrong.

Through this nail polish and similar technologies, we hope to make potential perpetrators afraid to spike a woman’s drink because there’s now a risk that they can get caught. In effect, we want to shift the fear from the victims to the perpetrators. We are Undercover Colors and we are the first fashion company empowering women to prevent sexual assault.

I hope they get funded and gain wide distribution. Ideally, I’d love to see a product like this stocked at bars and made available for free to anyone who wants to use it.

So, you’re ready to take on the Titans, huh? Well, if you’re going to line up with the rest of the Scout Regiment and volunteer to become walking finger food, then you’re going to have to look the part. I suggest pre-ordering these AOT Scout Regiment Juniors Leggings (shipment slated for November). As an added bonus, these leggings are actually bite-proof too.

Just kidding! No, you’re probably going to get bitten in half.

This incredible makeup is the work of Laura Jenkinson who is a London-based makeup artist. She used her talents to turn her mouth into different cartoon characters. It’s surreal and amazing because the characters are so well-done, and look more than a little freaky when you take them in with the rest of her face.

omote

Projecting computer graphics onto surfaces isn’t anything new, but the technology is becoming more and more precise. Nobumichi Asai and his team have managed to create a system called Omote to track the movements of a human face and project images and makeup upon it to look realistic. It’s amazing that the graphics can fit over the curves and lines of a face and look natural.

Though Asai has worked with CGI projection mapping in the past, his focus has typically been on objects like buildings and cars. Omote is a new challenge, and I can’t wait to see how it develops.

Watch the technology in action in the video after the break.
