Zapata Racing just released the Flyboard, a water-powered jet pack available to the public. The Flyboard gets it propulsion from a jet ski idling nearby; its hose forces water to shoot out of the user's feet. Not as cool as a the real deal the public is waiting on, but I guess this is a happy medium for now.

Instructables user dhouggy wanted to ride his bike indoors but didn't want to pay hundreds of dollars for a trainer or professionally-made roller. So with a couple 2x4s and some PVC pipe he was able to craft this working homemade model for just $50.

Scott DeSimon, writer at http://www.bonappetit.com/ stumbled across a quick and fun way to make a large quantity of corn on the cob. Get a large cooler, throw in the corn and add a couple quarts of boiling water... that's it. 30 minutes later the corn was cooked perfectly and ready to eat.

I can't be the only one that has never hear of this. Have any of you tried this? Any other easy kitchen hacks you think a lot of people don't know about?

Drinking (accessories) and driving are getting surprisingly popular these days. New mantra: If you can't do it on the roads, bring it into the kitchen!

I've seen photos of this thing floating around for a while, but never did it occur to me that it's in fact a real product. Available from Hammacher Schlemmer, this Wenger tool holds the Guinness Word Record for being the most multi-functional penknife. Kudos to you if you can name all of its fucntions. If not, here's a real Swiss guy going over how ridiculous this thing really is.

I'm pissed they took the laser out.
