Diapers Tell You When They’re Dirty In This Conceptual Ad

fb share tweet share

diapComedian David Cross has a great bit about commercials for redundant products that make easy tasks easier, using “electric scissors” to stab a hole into that kind of lazy ingenuity. Now, we’ll applaud anyone who tries to make the task of changing a diaper easier, but we’re not at all certain the people over at the Brazilian ad agency employed by the Huggies corporation actually understand what it is that’s hard about changing a diaper.

Instead of building something that changes the smelly things, they have unleashed Tweet Pee to the world, or at least a concept version of what Tweet Pee would be, should it ever come into existence. And no, Huggies has no actual plans on developing such a product for commercial use, but they’re not fooling me. They’re going to push this at some point in the future, and people will go crazy for it, sadly. (And it would go against the evolutionary reaction that a baby’s cries cause.)

Basically, it’s a humidity sensor affixed to a diaper that sends a message to your phone whenever the child needs to be changed. I guess people don’t want to use those old-fashioned devices called the eyes and nose anymore. Check out the below clip and feel jealous that you can’t just use the bathroom where you’re sitting. Probably.

Comic(s) Relief: Darth Vader To Face This Star Wars Baddie On The Comics Page

fb share tweet share

VaderHuttDark Horse published Star Wars comics for over 20 years, but now that George Lucas‘ franchise is in the hands of Disney, the license has shifted over to Marvel — which Disney owns. They’ll be launching several new Star Wars comics series next year, and just like the new movies, the Rebels animated series, and, well, pretty much everything Star Wars related from this point out, it will all take place in the same official, overarching canon. Beginning with Star Wars #1 in January 2015, we’ll get new comics stories focusing on the original trilogy’s core trio of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Princess Leia…plus a series focusing on everybody’s favorite asthmatic cyborg, Darth Vader himself. And it turns out he’ll be launching the comic that bears his name in style — by confronting another of Star Wars‘ most iconic baddies: Jabba the Hutt.

James Cameron Says Avatar 2, 3, And 4 Will Make You Do This Unpleasant Thing

fb share tweet share

James CameronJames Cameron is many things, but soft spoken and modest he is not. That’s part of what makes him so damn entertaining. With his Avatar 2, 3, and 4 all shooting back-to-back-to-back next year, you knew that was going to be at the forefront of his mind, and he’s got a lot to say on the matter, covering everything from how great they’re going to be to how they’re going to be “filmed.”

We expect a number of things from the upcoming movies, like a return to the magical alien world of Pandora, appearances from the likes of Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, and Sigourney Weaver, and dazzling special effects. Aside from that, however, we don’t know much about the actual films. Talking to Empire, Cameron didn’t reveal any details, but he did say something very promising. In his words the Avatar sequels are “gonna be bitchin’.”

Interstellar Is Christopher Nolan’s Longest Movie To Date, And Six New Photos

fb share tweet share

interstellarAre you ready for Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar? You may think you are, but this is a more serious question than you may realize. As good as it looks, as excited as we all are to finally set eyes on it, this is not an undertaking you should go into lightly. This is going to be a marathon. Nolan is not exactly known for making short, quick hit movies, but Interstellar is going to be his longest yet. And because we seemingly can’t go a single day anymore without something new from the film, another collection of photos from the film and set dropped today.

We knew Interstellar was going to be a rather lengthy affair. After all, there are a number of big themes in play, and the plot is also fairly expansive. In the near future, global climate change has gotten so bad that Earth won’t be able to sustain life much longer. Basically, it’s time to find a new home, and a group of explorers, including Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway, blasts off through a newly discovered wormhole to find a fresh new planet to call home.

Transformers Cosplay That Actually Turns Into A Car Totally Wins

fb share tweet share

Attention all cosplayers, you now have two options in front of you. First, you can step up your game—and we’re talking way, way up—or you can just flat out quit. Why would we make such a statement, you may ask, because this guy in his Transformers costume, just totally won. By a mile, or a landslide, or whatever cliché you want to use. Any way you care to look at it, this is going to be hard to be beat. See, his outfit actually transforms.

This guy was spotted in Ann Arbor, Michigan, where his antics delighted some young passersby. In fact this 30 second video is already much more engaging and entertaining than Michael Bay’s giant mech movies. Maybe I’ll just watch this for two hours instead of going to see Age of Extinction. Not only is this guy dressed like a Bumble Bee from the series, but when he flips his lid, the robot actually converts into a car and rolls around. The design is relatively simple, but the end result is exactly what you want out of a costume, and maybe even a vehicle.

The Fascinating Science Of Powdered Alcohol

fb share tweet share

palcoholLast week I learned about a rather bizarre invention: powdered alcohol. Apparently it’s not the first time booze has been made into a fine dust, but “Palcohol” got major press when Lipsmark LLC launched a high-gear marketing campaign coinciding with the federal approval of the stuff, which then generated widespread concern and the eventual reversal of the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau approval. Apparently, you take a packet of Palcohol and just add water, or whatever you want. You can mix it with pretty much anything, including food. Can’t we stop at Jell-O shots? What a terrible idea. But the science behind Palcohol, now that’s interesting.

Alcohol’s a liquid, right? At least, at normal temperatures it is. It cooks off when you add it to pasta sauce, and that’s also is the reason flasks were invented. So what’s up with Palcohol? The process essentially turns alcohol into a solid, then into a powder.
