Remember this kid? The kid who was building his own house in his parents' backyard to secure a mortgage-free future? Well, he's finally finished his home-on-wheels, so it's time to take a look at the finished product. Hopefully no more bees will build their hives inside it anymore!

Meet the Popinator: The Popcorn Cannon That Fires Popcorn Directly Into Your Mouth

Favorite

Popcorn Indiana has manufactured a device for their Popinator project that shoots popcorn kernels into your mouth whenever you say the word "pop." Using binaural audio recognition technology, its popcorn cannon is able to swivel to the exact 360-degree direction the voice came from. Aside from the typical voice fluctuation drawbacks you might face ("yeah, she's really popular- whoa! What the hell?"), it's a pretty darn neat little gadget. Think of it as Kinect for food!

Please don't show this to any black metal bands. They've killed tremolo picking already.

Steve Hoefer at Grathio labs shows off his Arduino based door opener, which responds to knocks on the door bye timing the gaps between the sounds. If the gap matches the programmed knock, it unlocks. Let's never use keys again!

Fail of the Day: Watch Jean-Claude Van Damme Troll Everyone

Funny or Die held a competition last year in which it asked viewers to create their own movie starring Jean-Claude Van Damme using some green screened footage of the actor.

One year later, Marca Blanca combined that footage with some of the best epic fails, and the result is pretty amazing.

Watch “Jean-Troll Van Damme” take out a jogger, a boy in a toy car and a number of other unfortunate souls.

You never know when he’s going to appear… be very afraid.
