Antimov: This Robot Will Self Destruct in 5 Seconds.

Antimov: This Robot Will Self Destruct in 5 Seconds.

Hair Washing ‘Bot Won’T Rip Your Head Off, Will It?
If there’s one thing that I wouldn’t want a robot to do, it’s to wash my hair before getting a haircut. But that didn’t stop Panasonic [JP] from making a hair washing robot, that hopefully won’t…

R2-D2 Gets a Parking Ticket From an Astronaut

R2-D2 Gets a Parking Ticket From an Astronaut
This great painting is by Scott Listfield. Scott has got quite a few paintings featuring these lonely astronauts in them. The whole concept reminds me of 2001: Space Odyssey. Except for the R2-D2 part – that…

Encline Designs Custom Figures: Transformers Transformed

Encline Designs Custom Figures: Transformers Transformed
