Today we have a blog post with a huge list of things that you can print out and use. I really liked the paper toys and of course I am a big fan of the hipster PDA but there are all sorts of fun, and some rather odd, things on the list.

A Whack on the Head

Danger Room has a blog post that links to a video demonstrating a new gel that can be used to protect against impact. It looks like an interesting material but it is a bit disconcerting to see the guy being hit on the head with the shovel.
