Geek Out While You Work Out With These Captain America-Inspired Barbell Plates

Fitness equipment manufacturer Onnit has revealed their series of officially licensed Marvel-themed workout gear that they will release later this summer. This line of workout equipment will be called "The Hero Elite Series."

The first thing they will be releasing are these Captain American-themed barbell plates that will come in different weight increments: 25, 35, and 45 pounds. We can also expect to see some Iron Man-themed stuff as well, as the character is also featured on the company's web site. This means we could be seeing Civil Wars exploding in gyms around the nation.

These are pretty cool, and it will be fun to see what they end up doing for Iron Man.

The leader in unconventional training equipment is teaming up with the biggest heroes in the Marvel Universe to form a team of truly epic proportions.
Launching this Summer, Onnit will introduce a series of functional fitness equipment inspired by iconic Marvel characters and designed to help you build super-strength.

Nintendo Power Glove Reprogrammed to Work as a Drone Remote Control

I remember when my friend got a Nintendo Power Glove when I was growing up. He didn’t know how to work the damn thing, and he wouldn’t let any of his friends play with it and try to get it to work. After a couple of weeks, we never saw him playing with it again and since he never let us try it out, we never asked him if we could try it out. When I finally did get a chance to play with it, it wasn’t as cool as The Wizard made it out to be. It was pretty much useless, but it sure did look cool, though!

An inventive dude by the name of Nolan Moore got himself a Power Glove and replaced the electronics inside with the remote tech to control his drone. 

The AR Drone 2.0 uses WiFi for control. His power glove has an IMU to sense motion, and flex sensors in the fingers. These sensors are monitored by a Teensy LC board which then sends commands over WiFi using an ESP8266 module.

His version of the Power Glove works better as a remote control for the drone than the Nintendo controller it was originally designed for. Check out a video of it in action below.

Here’s What Charlie Hunnam Would Look Like as Green Arrow

heres-what-charlie-hunnam-would-look-like-as-green-arrow1

As you may or may not know, there fans out there that would love to see Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy, Pacific Rim) suit up as the Green Arrow in the DC cinematic universe. I doubt it will ever happen, but if you’re wondering what the actor might look like in the role of the hero, this is a piece of fan wart that was whipped up by Boss Logic

As of right now, there don’t seem to be any plans to bring Green Arrow in to the movie universe, but if they did, they wouldn’t bring Stephen Amell along for the ride. It’s been made very clear that the DC TV universe is a completely separate from the movies. 

Hunnam definitely has the look of the character, so if he was cast in the role of Green Arrow, I wouldn’t complain.

These Mac & Cheese-Themed Cocktails Will Make You Want to Puke

these-mac-cheese-themed-cocktails-will-make-you-want-to-puke1

So uh, the folks over at Above Average thought it would be fun to whip up a few Mac & Cheese cocktail creations and I thought you might find them amusing. Of course, I wouldn’t drink any of these because the side effect might be a never ending vomit fest of grossness. I’ve included a description of each cocktail that are pictured below. Enjoy the nastiness! 

Mac-Tini

You don’t have to be a James Bond to make this booze-y classic. This one’s as simple as it gets. Ice cold gin, a splash of sweet vermouth and some original (Blue Box) Kraft Macaroni & Cheese. Shake and pour into an icey cold glass.

Berry & Cheese Crush

This light & refreshing cocktail of white wine, berries, triple sec, mint and Kraft Deluxe Mac & Cheese would fit right in at the Kentucky Derby. Treat yourself on a hot summer day.

Mac-Mosa

A twist on the classic. Instead of orange juice, use a full packet of Kraft cheese powder (it’s so much better!) top with champagne and ripe watermelon from your garden.

Saucy Sangria

You might not have Star Wars shaped Mac & Cheese in your pantry but it’s worth the splurge! Combine with red wine, citrus fruits, blueberries, lime and both cheese powder and velvety cheese sauce. Yum!

Cucumber Lime Extra Cheesy Margarita

Adding cucumber to your traditional mac & cheese & lime margarita can add a subtle but delicious note! If you’re making me one, make sure you put cheese powder on the rim! Luvvvv!

Watermelon Swizzle

Muddle mint, watermelon and extra milky Kraft Mac & Cheese in a pint glass. Add seltzer and vodka and enjoy. All your friends will try and kill you for this recipe. Watch out!

Bill Murray Gives Advice to Danny McBride & Walton Goggins in New VICE PRINCIPALS Trailer

Director David Gordon Green and actor Danny McBride have teamed up for another HBO comedy series project together called Vice Principals and it looks like it could be an incredibly funny new show. 

McBride and Walton Goggins play high school vice principals who are competing for the head principal job, and they are willing to go to some ridiculously extreme lengths to make sure that they secure that position. Things get insanely out of hand when someone else nabs the position.

We’ve got a new trailer for you to watch today that features Bill Murray’s character, who is retiring as the principal of Lincoln High School. As he leaves, he offers some advice to McBride and Goggins before they start competing for his job.

If you were a fan of Eastbound & Down, then this new comedy looks like something that you’ll enjoy. Two seasons of Vice Principals have already been shot and the first season is set to premiere on HBO on July 17th.
