GauntLev-GIF-05182016

A team of researchers with the University of Bristol created a gauntlet that uses acoustic levitation to manipulate small objects. They’ve dubbed it the “Gauntlet of Levitation” or GauntLev for short. Catchy, right?

The GauntLev is part of a broader effort to create acoustic levitation devices that could, one day, help people work safely with hazardous materials. This effort includes another version that they have compared to the Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver. Read more after the break…

Anovos recently unveiled their official Ghostbusters Proton Pack Kit, and it’s available for preorder now. The kit features everything you need—minus a mini-nuclear reactor—to build your very own movie-quality Proton Pack prop.

Yes, this is a kit, so you have to assemble the pack yourself. Its also not cheap at $600.

However, as you’ll see in the feature list below, the pack may be worth the price for anyone that’s ever dreamed of owning this particular prop.

A few weeks ago we featured a video in which Mythbusters alum Grant Imahara teamed up with Allen Pan (whom you may recall as the guy that built a Mjolnir replica only he could lift) for a friendly Civil War-inspired build competition.

Namely, they set out to build “real” versions of Iron Man’s gauntlet and Cap’s shield. See how they turned out in the video below.

dyson supersonic

Dyson has built a high-tech empire out of sucking and blowing air. So moving into the hair dryer space seems like a natural progression from vacuums, hand dryers and fans.

Enter the $400 Dyson Supersonic.

For such a “simple” device, Dyson put in an extraordinary amount of money and effort. Apparently, the process took four years, involved 103 engineers, 600 prototypes and a price tag of $71 million.

All that and I can’t even ride it around town on a stream of hot air.

However, the Supersonic was designed to be super light, super fast, and very quiet. With a price tag that clocks in at $400, it had damn well better leave my wife’s hair smooth and glossy—because she’s going to want this thing. She’ll point to how much I spend on frivolous gadgets and, well…that will be that.

The Supersonic will launch exclusively in the US at Sephora in September.

Check out the video below for more about the features.

fake nail stockings

I don’t know whether this idea is genius or super genius, but leave it to Japan to come up with it.

Belle Maison has created stockings with pre-painted toenails in a variety of colors and designs. Don’t have time to get a pedicure? No problem!

Plus, they’re fitted to each toe, so you don’t have to worry about your “nails” moving around too much.

Take a closer look below.
