The iconic Roland TR-808 had a unique sound for a very special reason, one that gave it an incredibly limited production run - the transistor that it was designed around was flawed, a reject from thousands of its ilk, and it is that flaw that gave the 808 its unique sound.

Some people are able to solve a Rubik‚Äôs Cube very quickly, there are even lots of robots that can solve them much faster than people can. Well this new system is crazy fast. Less then a half second to solve the cube. The motors need to be very strong and fast to push the system to this speed. This means that the moves have to be exacting or else it is sure destruction of the cube. They have some dramatic examples of that in the videos.

Some women in China are taking an incredibly badass measure to ward off sexual harassment. “Anti-Pervert” flame-throwers have become a popular deterrent for creeps, particularly in the summer, when unwanted advances ramp up. The devices are on sale at a number of websites starting at about $13 and going over $40.

Mr Higgs' corkscrew cannot be held in the hand and the only similarity it shares with its namesake is that it does remove corks from bottles. Weighing in at half a tonne, this incredible beauty of 382 moving parts is cast in bronze and is a glorious sight to behold when set in ponderous, whirring, clanking motion.

Solves that age-old bathing dilemma and adds a "hole" new dimension of "pleasure" and fun to your shower or bath.
Just a few quick "strokes" of the Weener Kleener will clean and sanitize most appendages.
The Weener Kleener soap cleans the body but dirties the mind. You'll be showering twice daily with your new bath time toy. This stimulating soap ring makes a great gag gift for a boyfriend or adds some hilarity to some poor guy who just got dumped.

President Donald Trump's tweets irritated a robotics engineer so much that he built a robot to burn each and every one of them.
David Neevel's red robot prints out each tweet on a piece of paper then switches on a lighter, burns it and dispenses the flaming remainders into an ashtray. Neevel has filmed and documented the entire process on Twitter.
The robot even replies to @realdonaldtrump, "I burned your tweet."

John St. Clair patented a teleportation system in 2006 that generates a pulsed gravitational wave which propagates through a magnetic vortex wormhole generator. Heady stuff.

A man approaches a bicycle, handheld electric saw at the ready. He powers it on, starts to drill, and is shot in the face with a noxious spray that makes him vomit uncontrollably. This is the dream of the inventors of SkunkLock.

When pumping 60 volts into this Electric Mobility Scooter it turns into tons of fun. Their is no soft start on this thing so as soon as the launch button is pressed the motor springs to life. Interestingly enough this scooter has some drag bars that prevent the thing from flipping over backwards. Not sure how long the motor would last with this voltage but it sure looks like fun while it lasts. They even tested it with a few runs at 72 volts! It doesn't take long to get up to speed with that voltage. The electronics were slightly modified, a nice large contactor was added to allow a small horn button to control the large load. In the end 72 volts was more than the motor could take and it burnt up.

We invented a micro-CPAP device that has no hoses, no cords, and no mask. We did it because too many people have sleep apnea, and too many of those donít wear their CPAP masks. Who can blame them with those masks and hoses? But we need your help to get it out of the lab and into your hands.

This compact machine is capable of unravelling proteins, a revolutionary development that has huge implications for the treatment of cancer, the manufacture of pharmaceuticals, the production of biofuels and food processing.
The VFD can do the unthinkable in the process of demonstrating its capabilities - it can unboil an egg.

Picture, if you will, a lamp that requires no sunlight to charge, no batteries to replace, no power cord to plug in. It's the GravityLight, a lamp that runs like your grandpa's clock - lift the weighted drive belt, and the kinetic energy from gravity pulling the weight back down gives you 20 minutes of light. You can still get in on the already-funded indiegogo campaign here!
