Gardening can be lots of fun, but it’s not always really easy. It can be, though, if you’re a robotics expert able to put together your very own robot gardener, who can do all the grunt work by remote while you kick back in a lawn chair with a gaming controller.
Chunk’s yoda DJ shirt combines one of the most ancient geek icons with one of the geekiest forms of music. Lightsaber rave parties anyone?

Created by the horological artisans of Switzerland’s Jaquet Droz, this analog clock is a true thing of wonder.
