ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
By Mio I-zawa, via Laughing Squid and Pink Tentacle.
I always thought Monster Cables were overpriced, until I saw this one.
eXistenZ!!! i knew it was real!
I have a monster pain in my side form laughing. FABULOUS!!
Here is an excerpt from an IM I just had with Rob about this:
Pesco: You know I’m a big Cronenberg fan.
Rob: Not a surprise there!
Pesco: I interviewed him for the BB print ‘zine in the early 1990s. He was awesome. I focused the interview all about the weird gloopy sounds he uses in his movies.
Rob: hey, I was going to remark that the only bad thing about it was that there wasn’t a sound chip covering up the servo noised with nice wet schlupping sounds. Heartbeat, etc.
Pesco: hahahahahah, exactly.
Oh… eeewww… damn you videodrome!
/goes to torrent videodrome.
Oh god, it’s sucking out the internets!
SHUT IT DOWN! CUT THE HARD-LINES!
It’s too late. The only thing left is Bieber. (He’s indigestible)
Hahaha! -Though actually, he is when he’s slowed down 800%.
I need one of those. My cats like to chew through thin power cords if they can get ahold of them.
and it’s so practical, too
This is so awesome I actually thought about buying an iPhone just so I could use it. @redesigned is dead on. That’s an eXistenZ connector cable if I ever saw one. And Rob is totally on target about the sound chip.
I can forsee improvements like simulated peristalsis that shows whether data is uploading or downloading.
In fact, am I out of line is hoping for an entire line of cables like this?
Long Live the New Flesh!
can you set your iPhone on the desk and this thing will wiggle over to it and suck the end in to initiate charging? now that would be cool.
one word – gnarly
I must have one! Where! Where!
Are we still in the game?
i dont want that in my house. period. foot so down.
Tentacles and iPhones, my two most favourite things.
They could sell a range of these things like a sarlacc pit iPad charger with a tiny Boba Fett that pops up when the charge is complete.
eww. Just read Chuck Palahniuk’s “Guts”. soooo…ewwww.
Is it ingesting *from* or excreting *to* the series of tubes?
That’d determine if it should be named “Apple” or not.
