Convert your horse into a dragon with this simple device. [geekologie]

Convert your doggy into a duck with this simple device. [geekologie]

Looks like the beginning of Skynet is upon us. Don't even think about running. This robot runs faster than you, and it's freakin' creepy looking to boot. [geekosystem]

What's more awesome than playing Assassin's Creed? Watching Assassin's Creed IRL, that's what. Prepare to be amazed. [geekologie]

New School video games vs Old School video games, who would win? Check out this live-action video to find out. [gammasquad]

Can you imagine if the Justice League world and the Transformers world were thrown together? We almost got to find out, but sadly, legal crap got in the way. [blastr]

I don't usually mention Star Trek things on here, but when I do, it's awesome. How about this 6-player Starship Bridge Simulator game. I'm not a huge Star Trek fan, but I'll admit, I'd play the heck out of this. [blastr]

Gamers are pretty outspoken about speaking their mind, but here's 15 things you'll never hear a gamer say. [dorkly]

Have a little time to kill? Why not watch 14 minutes of Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zero footage. [gammasquad]

You know what's always funny? Laughing at other people's expense. There's a step in an NYC subway station that's slightly taller than the rest of the steps. A guy decided to record people walking up these steps, and hilarity ensues. [buzzfeed]

Turns out, there's one billionaire in the world who hasn't seen Jurassic Park, or if he has, he hasn't even considered the repercussions of his plans to make a real life Jurassic Park. Yes, you read that right. Cloned Dinosaurs and all, IRL. [blastr]

What would sci-fi TV shows, movies, and video games be without spaceships? Pretty crappy, that's what. Here are 7 of the greatest spaceships in video game history. [dorkly]

Nick’s Friday Round-Up: Hodgepodge Edition

He should had done a barrel roll. =(

It's 11/11/11, and you know what that means? NOTHING! Except a lot of 1's, so it makes it easy to remember today's date. Also, Veteran's Day, so a big thank you goes out to all the veteran's who helped to keep this country safe and free.

Video games are awesome, but then you hear that one of them is educational, and you think to yourself, "Wow, that game must be super lame." Right? WRONG! Here are 6 educational games that were awesome! [dorkly]

Cute little animals. We love and adore them. We even allow them to become our best friends, but underneath that cute, loyal exterior is a troll. A cute, fuzzy, conniving troll. [geekosystem]

We all love Muppets, and probably grew up watching Sesame Street. I know I did. What you probably didn't know was they used to have a black stereotype Muppet that quickly got the axe. Here's are 10 fun facts that you didn't know about Sesame Street. [buzzfeed]

Nothing is faster than the speed of light, at least that's what most of us believe. Well, in actuality, you can break the speed of light in your own backyard. Curious, are you? [howtogeek]

Technology has come a loooooong way in the past 20 years, and people's skills in using this technology has evolved with it. I thought Lisa's Photoshop skills were pretty top-notch, but this guy blows her out of the water. A guy uses Photoshop to create a drawing that looks like a photograph of a real girl. [youtube]

Keeping in theme with the Photoshop skills, here's some fantastic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan art. Some are amazing, some are super cute, and some will give you nightmares for weeks. [buzzfeed]

You know as a kid you always wanted some sort of secret passageway or hidden room in your house. Ok, who am I kidding, I STILL want a secret passageway in my house, and there are people out there who made that desire into a reality. [mentalfloss]

I'll leave you with another fun game to waste time playing, that is if Solip Skier hasn't occupied enough of your time this week. Zombie Trailer Park, is quite simple. Build up your trailer park and keep the zombies at bay long enough to overpower them and destroy their base. Stage 1: Easy and fun. Stage 2: inb4uragequit. Stage 3: I'm still rage quitting from stage 2, but I'll be back. [addictinggames]
