It is that time again, time for some more cool gadgets and accessories that you might want, but probably don't need. Starting off we have a skull-shaped bean bag chair that opens up when in use, along with semi-hidden peel lights that blend perfectly in with your wall when turned off. Our favorite? Definitely the TowlHub USB Paper Towel Holder. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

No, the image you see above isn't of another world, just Northern Norway. This geographical region of Norway is often described as the land of the midnight sun and the land of the northern lights. Further north, halfway to the North Pole, is the Arctic archipelago of Svalbard, traditionally not regarded as part of Northern Norway. Svolver (above) is located in the Lofoten archipelago on the southern coast of the island of Austvagoya, facing the open sea of the Vestfjorden to the south, and with mountains immediately to the north.

White tigers and chimpanzees aren't synonymous, but when two white tiger cubs were born during a hurricane and separated from their mother after their sanctuary flooded, chimpanzee Anjana became their surrogate mother. Keeper China York says, "She gives them a bottle, lies with them and acts as a surrogate mother. She has a close contact and bond and gives them a nurturing." Continue reading for more unlikely animal friendships captured by photographers.
Assassin's Creed Unity may look realistic, but when in-game screenshots placed next to the real-life locations in Paris, France, the similarities are even more noticeable. Damien Hypolite has done just that, comparing the modern-day Paris side-by-side with screenshots from the game. This was accomplished by playing the game in HD with a physical map of Paris on-hand. Afterwards, he printed out the screenshots on glossy paper and biked to the real-life locations with a smartphone for the photos. Continue reading for more.

Before electronic calculators and even desktop computers, there was the mechanical calculator, a device used to perform automatically the basic operations of arithmetic. Most mechanical calculators were comparable in size to small desktop computers and have been rendered obsolete by the advent of the electronic calculator. The top image above shows what they looked like when the shell was removed. Click here to view the first image in this week's demotivational poster gallery.

If you're not a hypercar enthusiast, this may be the first time you've heard of the Devel Sixteen, but it's the first hypercar to have a reported 5,000-horsepower. The company claims that it's powered by a V16 engine and does 0-60mph in a mere 1.8-seconds, with a top speed of 348mph. Unfortunately, no engine shots have surfaced. However, if this vehicle ever hits the road, it will cost in excess of $1-million. Continue reading for the in-action video.
Telekinesis is best known as a psychic ability allowing a person to influence a physical system without physical interaction. Microsoft engineer Mike Taulty from the company's Developer and Platform Group has managed to use Microsoft Kinect, along with Sphero, a robotic toy controlled by a smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth, to harness augmented telekinetic powers, similar to Professor X. As X-Men fans know, he's a mutant who possesses vast telepathic powers, and is among the strongest and most powerful telepaths in the Marvel Universe. He is able to perceive the thoughts of others or project his own thoughts within a radius of approximately 250 miles (400 km). Continue reading for the video demonstration.
Frozen ponds are nothing special, but this one just happened to have a few perfectly placed rocks inside, causing surreal rings to form around them. While no official explanation for them has been given, one Reddit user, "Biogeopaleochem", says these occur because: "Differences in albedo or the reflectivity of the materials. Since the rock is darker it absorbs more energy from the sun during the day which is then emitted as long-wave radiation (heat) which melts the ice. The rings are day/night cycles." Continue reading for more images.
So, you've planned to camp out at your local electronics retailer, but were still too far back to get in on the door busters. One thing you shouldn't expect to see is something that's been discounted a mere dollar from $1200 to $1199. Unfortunately, there are plenty of other things that probably should have received manager approval in stores before employees posted them. Continue reading to see more.
