Loving father built a prosthetic hand for his son with a 3D printer - http://sploid.gizmodo.com/loving-...
Kids are just the best. And dads who love their kids make them even better. Leon is a boy who was born without fingers on one of his hands. Instead of making him think he was different, his father Paul McCarthy made him believe he was special. In fact, McCarthy made a prosthetic hand with a 3D printer so his son could be excited to become a cyborg. And Leon totally is. Read more...

An awesome guy made an insane Thor hammer that smashes everything - http://sploid.gizmodo.com/an-awes...
This ridiculously awesome man made version of Thor's hammer Mjölnir is so impressive that even our most Thor-like human Chris Hemsworth would have trouble swinging it around. Though it's not quite the weight of 300 billion elephants, it's the closest thing to Mjölnir on Earth. That's because it's made from 10 separate pieces of steel alloyed with chromium and molybdenum. At its heaviest, it can weigh over 200 pounds. Read more...

The High Tech Movie Magic Behind Ender's Game's Zero-G Battle Room - http://gizmodo.com/the-hig...
The on-screen adaptation of Ender's Game is already filled with enough gorgeous cinematography to get space nuts drooling, but no scene hits that space envy button quite as hard Ender's Zero-G stint in the battle school war room. Design FX for Wired talked to the film's graphic team to see what it took to make those near-operatic sequences match up to the physical constraints of space. Read more...

Finding a cure for Alzheimer's disease has defied medical researchers for decades now, but a team of scientists just gave us new reason to hope. They've discovered a way to zap away the bad proteins that cause diseases like Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and Creutzfeldt-Jakob (a.k.a. mad cow) disease—with lasers. Read more...

How Many Clocks Did You Change Yourself For Daylight Savings? - http://gizmodo.com/how-man...
I did the thing this morning. I woke up, looked at the clock, saw that it was time to get up, jumped out of bed even though the alarm on my phone hadn't gone off yet, started turning lights on, remembered daylight savings, checked the time on my phone, went back to sleep for an hour. Actually it was kind of nice. Read more...

Two Laptops Locked In An Endless Rock-Paper-Scissors Battle - http://gizmodo.com/two-lap...
Playing rock-paper-scissors with a friend or family member is actually a pretty sophisticated intellectual challenge. You might choose your move based on a personal preference or whim, but you're probably also thinking about what your opponent is going to pick. Sometimes you can just feel your brother leaning paper, or your best friend thinking that you're thinking scissors, and therefore planning to play rock. It's an art form. Read more...

The Laptops Worth Buying This Holiday Season - http://gizmodo.com/the-lap...
If you’re buying a new laptop this holiday season, you should probably get a MacBook Air. Its build quality is best-in-breed, its 12-15 hour battery life (on the 13" model) absolutely embarrasses the competition, and its operating system is extremely reliable and polished. Plus, despite what you may have heard about Apple products, it's actually quite affordable compared to the competition. Read more...

This mind-bending machine completes one turn every 2.3 trillion years - http://sploid.gizmodo.com/this-mi...
This machine by Arthur Ganson just blew my mind: its engine runs at 200 revolutions per minute but the last gear of its 12-gear mechanism is locked to a block of concrete. It looks still but, in reality, it is moving. You just can't see it because it completes one revolution every two trillion years. How the hell is this possible? Read more...

Astronauts took the Soyuz for a fun little fly around the ISS - http://sploid.gizmodo.com/astrona...
In a planned mission, three ISS crew members took their Soyuz out for a ride around the ISS. Why? Did they want to show Sandra Bullock's character in Gravity how it's really done? Not exactly. Instead, it's actually the astronaut equivalent of moving your car out of a parking space so your roommate can park his. Only we're dealing with Soyuz spacecrafts as cars. And the ISS as your apartment. And oh yeah, space. Read more...

Get Your Guts Ripped Out For an Awesome Halloween Costume - http://gizmodo.com/get-you...
Two years ago a NASA engineer named Mark Rober emailed us a halloween costume that used two iPads to make it look like you had a gaping hole in your stomach. It was pretty clever. The following year he took it up a notch, making it way cheaper, and way more versatile. This year the system is both more refined, and more gruesome. Read more...

O-Zone: Dragostea din tei - http://gizmodo.com/o-zone-...
You remember this, right? Moldovan pop group O-Zone released "Dragostea din tei" in Romania in 2003, and it got really popular when it had its worldwide release in 2004. Then callow youth Gary Brolsma of New Jersey posted a video of himself lip syncing and dancing along to the song. Obviously, because it was 2004, he posted it on Newgrounds. And then, like Hamster Dance before it, it went viral. Read more...

An Extracurricular And Deadly Use For Pencils - http://lilyhnewman.kinja.com/an-extr...
I wouldn't say using pencils as zombie-killing projectiles would be my first thought, but if you do enough slingshot-ing I guess it makes sense that you would eventually run up against office supplies as a source of inspiration. Joerg updates his pencil shooter to be crank operated and more efficient. It can shoot two pencils at a time for a total of 16 in one magazine. And Joerg sees potential for use with a power drill instead of "muscle operated action" aka humans. Leave the pencil shooter going while you run away from the zombies. Solid plan. Read more...

BUT now it's actually going to ship on November 1st. For real this time. Read more...

Ross Ulbricht's arrest last week included an FBI seizure of about 26,000 Bitcoins. But you can't just stick Bitcoins under your mattress. Even if you're the FBI they have to be in a wallet somewhere. And people know where. Internet denizens found the wallet and have been contributing tiny sums, we're talking 0.00000001 BTC here, so they can leave public notes expressing a range of . . . feelings.
