Food & Culture: Fried Flowers? We Can Eat Flowers… Fried? (Video)

We all know that everything tastes better deep-fried…

Not saying I’d take a trip to Thailand just to try this, but not saying I wouldn’t… if someone else was paying for the ticket. I got my own fried flower money! Something tells me that this is delicious.

Plus, the li’l lady selling ’em looks like a sweetheart 🙂

Technology/Gaming: Learn To Make Car Repairs In Virtual Reality (Video)

Perhaps not an age-old question, but a cool one to answer: “Can I learn to fix race cars without risking damage to something expensive (like a car, or myself)?” “Oh wait, follow up, I don’t have a car, garage or tools of my own; does that matter much?. Oh, and wait, do I have to get ‘dirty’ and stuff?” Hahaaa!

Fix your car…in VR!

It’s time to get your car ready for racing without getting your hands dirty. “Wrench” is an indie game for virtual reality that lets players assemble photorealistic components for a custom race car. Players diagnose problems with their speed machines and try to fix them.

The game is still in development, and the developers say it won’t include any driving simulation either.

Well, there’s your answer!

Pusha T – “Bodega Babies” (Video)

Okay, so it’s a promo video for adidas Originals… but that Pusha track entitled “Bodega Babies” is featured prominently in it. And speaking of prominent (e.g. placed to be very recognizable), anybody heard that beat before? Like during the Swizz Beatz vs. Just Blaze beat battle we posted on here?

The Bodega, a place for growth and evolution in all senses; where people buy their groceries, hang outside at night, and gain respect from peers. We pay tribute to the hub of many communities. The EQT Support Ultra King Push “Bodega Babies” hits the streets November 3rd. #KingPushEQT
– adidas Originals

Oh, and before you ask, of course, I know who the thickalicious bodacious Honey that walked into the Bodega mid-flick is… Fabolous knows her, too. That’s his wifey Emily Bustamante aka Emily B. Mercy on me, Fab is a fortunate man #BLESS

Remember When That Cliffside Shop Was Giving Out Free Jackets? (Video)

Ah! Here’s what looks like a winner for best response to when bae pops up like, “Honey, let’s go shopping,” all excited and *ish. Just make sure bae’s not a climbing enthusiast, and you can have your weekend back… Sheeeeit! They haven’t made a jacket worth a death-defying rock climb. Sorry, so NOT sorry. HA!

A pop-up clothing shop lets you get warm 300 feet up.

Cocona set up a shop 300 feet in the air in Colorado’s Eldorado Canyon. Climbers earned the clothing simply by making the ascent up the canyon’s Bastille Wall — no purchase necessary.

Cocona wants to show off their clothing, which is based on “37.5 technology” — it keeps climbers’ body temperature at 37.5 degrees Celsius, or 99.5 degrees Fahrenheit. Many climbers claim that temperature is ideal for endurance.

The SquADD Debates The ‘Best Chocolate Bar’ Ever (Video)

The struggle is SO real in this All Def Digital clip… the struggle not to laugh until you cry! Every candy bar in this “discussion” is someone’s favorite, so that’s not up for debate. But just like any food review panel the squADD convenes, the joning/cracking/bagging/janking is EPIC. They just cannot resist going in on each other, can they?

Look. Make up your mind about which candy you like early, then enjoy the hilarity of the panelists giving each other the business! Bwaaahahaa!

What Have You Heard About iPhone 8? Well, Here’s The Real Scoop (Video)

Even if you have never camped out in line to be among the first to get the new ‘you fancy huh?’ phone, this clip should let you understand why iPhone fanatics did. And this iPhone 8 though. That look, that sleek ‘body’ and it being so ‘just for you’ it knows you by touch (as in Touch ID)… Wow!

The phone’s release day is tomorrow. For those who are still undecided, too bad we couldn’t hear Siri’s voice to seal the deal. Hahaha!

Technology: Virginia Tech & Ford’s “Mystery Van” Test Drives The Concept Of Autonomous Vehicles Moving Amongst People In Real Life (Video)

Wowww! The Virginia Tech Transportation Institute and Ford tricked out a vehicle like they did for KITT on ‘Knight Rider’ back in the ’80s. A person, disguised as a seat, is doing the driving… for now. But this is more scientific / industry study than a campy action-tech series featuring ‘The Hoff.’ Way more!

As the self-driving future nears, we’re testing the next phase in autonomous technology to learn how these vehicles can communicate with pedestrians. We worked with the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute to explore this new development, and see how pedestrians on campus reacted to a vehicle that appeared to be driving itself.

Eye Candy: Coco Austin (Ice-T’s Wife) On Giving Herself Even More Cleavage [Video]

Mercy, mercy on ME!

Most awesome (and unnecessary) line in this entire video of Coco, “Don’t blink!” As if I would EVER even THINK to blink while watching Co talk about amping up her already uber-ample cleavage. What?! Then she ends this with, “It’s awesome!” FACTS!

I lust love talks like these, Coco. More please, please MORE.

And you can talk about almost anything. I mean, I’m a Neil deGrasse Tyson fanatic. But if you bring them astronomical thangs to a TEDxTalk and lecture on astrophysics, you can HAVE his spot! Plus, I think we already have a TEDx Talk from hubby Ice-T on here.

Meek Mill’s don’t-call-it-a-comeback is coming along just fine. Through the beef with Drizzy, dealing with the Remy-vs-Nicki fallout… Philly’s son stood tall on his own two feet through it all. Never fake. Real, from head to toe. Right down to his shoes. Speaking of which…

Meek Mill goes Sneaker Shopping with Joe La Puma at Stadium Goods, and talks about looking up to Allen Iverson and moving on past his Puma deal.

Technology: Hexa Is A Six-Legged ‘Bug Bot’ (Video)

Brrrr! This might give you the shakes. This robot is both creepy and amazing, but you can teach it your own tricks! Looks kind of like a forerunner of the version of the Sentinels that are in the trailers for the mutant thriller series, “The Gifted,” debuting this Fall on Fox.

Very creepy.

Want Your Own Bulletproof Combat Helmet? British Special Forces Are Checking Them Out Now (Video)

Okay, I am more a Star Trek fan than a Star Wars fanatic. But they had me at “looks like Boba Fett’s helmet.” However, they probably got a few more with the whole now-soldiers’-heads-can-be-bulletproof-too thing. Check it out.

British special forces are testing DEVTAC’s Ronin helmet. It’s being compared to the Boba Fett mask from “Star Wars,” but what this thing can do is crazier than fiction. You can order one from their website.

Technology: Tiny Device Could Heal Even Brain Injuries With Just A Touch (Video)

Wow. So instead of harvesting stem cells that can become any cell needed for medical care & repairs, just create a dime-sized device that can tailor most any cell. Great tech!

A new device has been developed at The Ohio State University, which turns cells into other types of cells required for treating diseased conditions. During testing, one touch completely repaired injured legs of mice over three weeks!

Batteries Not Included: Cell Phone Powered By Light And Radio Waves (Video)

Alright. I will tell you from the start that this is NOT going to be anywhere near as badass as your super-duper-smartphone. But if you spend your time picking at what this cell phone cannot do, you will miss appreciating the glorious technological step forward it represents. The holy grail of power systems is developing a perpetual motion-driven energy source (does not exist), but a very acceptable step down from that is powering things with virtually limitless source energy (like solar). BUT… what if we took a half step down and eliminated the need for a power source altogether? THAT is where THIS is going!

Researchers at the University of Washington have created a cell phone that uses so little power, it never needs to charge and doesn’t have a battery. Instead, it pulls power from ambient light and radio waves.

Up And Coming Dancer/Choreographer ShirJuanda ‘Bounce’ Woodson Debuts Her HoverKicks Ad (Video)

Wow! Have you been keeping up with ShirJuanda ‘Bounce’ Woodson? So beautiful. So talented. And her grind… how can someone start from the bottom, get it out the mud, and look so clean every step of the way? I will post a couple more vids (including a behind-the-scenes for the one above) after the jump to initiate those who don’t know and allow those who do to celebrate. Watch and realize that HoverKicks is just now recognizing what many already know… Bounce is the BUSINESS!

After creating her viral ’90s video to Boyz 2 Men’s hit “Motown Philly,” Bounce was discovered by Hoverkicks and asked to create their newest commercial for their famous light-up shoes line!!!
– HoverKicks

I feel very fortunate to have gotten in on her ‘friend wave’ before she can accept no more. We’ll hear more from Bounce to be sure. But for now, let’s salute to her success for just a sec.

(Time’s up! Bounce is already on the move to the next project. Trust.)
