Remember BuckyBalls? You know, those amazing tiny little rare earth magnets that you can sculpt into all sorts of artistic (and not so artistic) creations? How’d you like a chance to win some of these cool metallic playthings for yourself?
Fans of Minority Report, the interfaces in Neal Stephenson’s The Diamond Age, and other future tech freaks take note: in an interview with CNET, Bill Gates says Microsoft hopes to incorporate Project Natal, revealed at this year’s E3 Expo, into Windows.
iKey’s AK-39 military-grade wearable keyboard is built to operate in “very harsh electromagnetic interference (EMI) environments”, as well as provide an interface that allows for one-armed typing. It also has a backlight that is compatible with night vision technology.
the bbps‘ Marc DeAngelis is one unhappy Wii-owner. His friend pointed out several black vertical lines that flickered on and off the screen while they were playing. His friend added that that same thing happened to him; he had to have his console’s GPU replaced.
You know, square? Like pixels? Oh, lame jokes, never desert me… and internets, please never stop supplying fantastic fan art. Even the dog from Duck Hunt–my most despised video game nemesis ever–looks great here.
Pixel art is a funny thing: it’s both simple and complicated.
Next time you see a bat flying about the evening sky, you’d better look close to make sure you’re not being observed by one of these miniature flying robot bats instead of the real thing.
Researchers at North Carolina State University are developing a micro-aerial vehicle (MAV) built with a body structure that mimics a bat.
Best Buy’s Insignia is the world’s first portable HD radio, allowing users to enjoy high quality digital FM radio on the go.
Meh. Who am I kidding? Best Buy is selling it for $50 (USD)! You can buy an mp3 player with a built-in FM tuner for that price.
Live in a rat-infested fleabag of an apartment? Well even if you don’t, you can still scare the beejezus out of your roommates with your very own remote-controlled rat.
With its light-up red eyeballs, I wouldn’t necessarily call this rat-on-wheels “lifelike”.
According to at least one set of criteria, Ms. Pac-Man, the girlied up version of everyone’s favorite power-pellet chomper, must be the best arcade game of all time… or at least, the easiest to track down.
Although they’re nearly twice as expensive as traditional rechargeable batteries, the USBCell from Moixa Energy can be recharged via USB, so if you keep your computer on most of the day, might as well use those extra USB ports to charge the batteries instead of spending extra for a battery charger.
The latest Neatorama exclusive talks about large-scale experiments and research and the massive and complex equipment that they require. I’m pretty sure that you’ve already heard of most of them, like the Hubble Telescope, the International Space Station, or the US and USSR’s space race, that culminated in the Apollo 11 moon landing.
Samus Aran has always been bad, but now she’s not alone amongst Nintendo’s top tier ladies. In this rendering by Assim Heetun, Princess Zelda, Princess Peach, and Samus have gone over the edge. They haven’t gone wild… they’ve gone punk warrior!
Another fun creation from the guys over at Fred & Friends, this new piggy bank has a built-in gauge to tell you how close to full it is.
The Fill ‘Er Up savings bank looks just like the gas gauge on a car, but instead of keeping track of fuel, it keeps track of coins.
I’ve seen some interesting Super Nintendo casemods in my time, but never one quite this whacked out. The Game Over casemod looks like a console that’s been possessed by Satan or something.
The console looks like it’s been bludgeoned with an axe, bled all over, burned and then possessed by some demonic power.
Hate all that excess cord you end up with when you wear your headphones? This fun little accessory lets you hide that spare cord with wit and whimsy.
Designed by Jason Amendolara for Fred & Friends, the »REW cord caddy looks like an old-school cassette tape (or more like a microcassette, IMHO), and lets you conceal all that unsightly extra wire inside.
Perfect for interviewing prospective job candidates, this truth-detecting wristband is a must have for human resources managers.
