Intel is backing a competition that features a finalist with a spectacular spoof on modern tech culture.

The prank involves developers supposedly putting together a wrist-mounted portable drone designed specifically for taking selfies.

In a neat touch to make the gag a little more authentic, you have to grab the wristband from the air and reattach it (the idea that it would reattach itself would of course be too far-fetched). As part of the comedy, we’re asked to imagine somebody doing this while clinging to a mountain face or walking a tightrope.

The people behind the prank have certainly gone to great lengths to make it seem real. They’ve even launched a website inviting people to sign up for updates.

According to the storyline, Intel has now selected it as a finalist in a “Make It Wearable” competition and will provide $50,000 in cash, plus design advice and technical support to develop it into a commercial product.

Oh, and by the way: please don’t tell me this is a genuine proposition rather than a biting satire. I don’t think I want to live in a world where that is true.

Brek Nebel’s son asked him to make breakfast a little more fun, so Nebel decided to experiment with adding color and designs to pancakes.

And then “Brekfast” got totally out of control!!

…Adopt me??

That’s it, I want soup now… and I want the Game of Thrones theme to play in the background each time I have a bowl of soup from now on.

McDonalds restaurants located in Hong Kong have recently started offering Justice League-themed meals, starting with Batman’s “Diner Double Beef”, a burger composed of an egg siting on top of two meat patties. I’m not exactly sure what the relation is between Batman and this burger, but I see none at all. Maybe they should have used some black buns instead. Now that would have made a little sense, at least!

Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe has been known for breaking out of the boy wizard role and showing us all what he can really do, from starring in a musical-comedy on Broadway to baring all in the award-winning play, Equus. In case you haven’t heard, now he’s tackling the lead role in Horns, a movie based on the 2011 book by Joe Hill.

According to IMDB:

In the aftermath of his girlfriend’s mysterious death, a young man awakens to strange horns sprouting from his temples.

Intrigued?? Well, judging from these stills of Radcliffe from the film, Horns looks unlike anything he’s ever done before!

The movie comes out ON HALLOWEEN!
