Japan Introduces World’s Thinnest Condoms (0.01mm)


Japanese condom manufacturer Sagami has just introduced the world’s thinnest condom, a pecker wrapper only 0.01mm thin. For reference, that’s about as thin as your penis is long. Hoho, burn! PROTIP: shave your pubes to make it look longer.

According to website ZakZak, it took Sagami Rubber Industries over ten years to realize these rubbers, from conception to completion. In total, over 20,000 condoms were put through a battery of tests (probably water leakage tests, burst tests, and tensile tests as well as, I’m guessing, other tests) in a trial and error process.

It previously released a 0.02 millimeter condom in 2005. By comparison, the thinnest Trojan condom, the Trojan Ultra Thin, is around 0.06mm.

Two weeks ago, Sagami launched the polyurethane contraceptives in Tokyo, with a box of five costing 1,260 yen (US$12). ZakZak reports that the rubbers have been incredibly popular, with some shops apparently selling out their stock.

Listen, kids: wrap those peckers up. I can’t stress that enough. And no complaining you don’t like the feel of condoms, you should just be thankful you’re having sex at all. You know what definitely feels worse than wearing a condom? A disease. Like having to wake up every two hours to calm a crying baby. Geekologie: making a difference.

Thanks to Aaron, who, like me, needs condoms at least an inch thick to avoid breakage.

Keep going for a video about the collection if you’re into torturing yourself, or check out PlanetOptic’s $20,000 Invisible Man kit in case you’re just trying to disappear for awhile.

Star Trek TNG Clips Edited So The Cast Sings ‘Let It Snow’


This is a short video of clips from Star Trek: The Next Generation edited together so the cast sings ‘Let It Snow’ (technically, ‘Make It So’). At least that’s what the first half of the video is. The second half is the guy who edited it talking about a video game he’s developing. Admittedly, not a bad tactic to get the first, unrelated half of your video game video watched.

Hit the jump for the video.

Pizza Baked With 3-D Printed Dough And Pizza Sauce


This is the 3-D printed pizza made by Natural Machines. Natural Machines is a company in Barcelona that’s developing a 3-D food printer called the Foodini. I mean, this is the future after all. We might not have jetpacks, but if I can print my own Twix bars in a year I’m still calling it a win. Unfortunately, only the dough and pizza sauce were 3-D printed — the cheese and spices were still added by hand. And hands, as I’m sure you’re all aware, are what people use to scratch their privates. That’s why it’s important to have ALL the ingredients 3-D printed. Nobody wants a half mushroom, half pube pizza. Gross fact: One time I actually found a pube in my chicken nuggets. I’m not going to say where I got them, but TWIST ENDING: my own freezer.

Thanks to Chandy, who agrees they need to work on 3-D printing Krystal burgers so I don’t have to wait to go visit my family in Alabama to have some.

Projector Animated Donkey Kong Wedding Cake


This is a wedding cake baked by Meals For Reals and animated by DJ and lighting company Posh Entertainment using a 3-D mapped projector. It works perfect for displaying Donkey Kong. Less perfect for Pac-Man. And that 3-D pipes Windows screensaver just looked f***ing awful. I don’t want to see that at my wedding. Or any cousins twerking. Jenny, please stop, we used to take baths together.

Keep going for a video demo, then throw your wedding reception in the dark so your projector cake really shines.
