Next month, Marvel will release a slew of comic books with alternate covers that feature different renditions of Iron Man. Marvel calls its gimmick Iron Man by Design, and oddly enough, none of the books are Iron Man titles.
As Wired‘s Charlie Sorrel said, books contain much of human knowledge, but they are quite hard to preserve or archive compared to other media. A setup invented by professor Masatoshi Ishikawa and his team at the University of Tokyo could change all of that.
Only someone who’s a complete stranger to the world of gaming would think that World of Lordcraft is an original IP. So, is the craft of lords better than that of war? In short: No. But it is way funnier.
So my recent journey with the HP TouchSmart 600 PC is coming to an end. But before I call it a wrap, I thought I’d share with you how the TouchSmart handles itself as a music playback and management system.
This is one area in which I think the TouchSmart software really shines, combining multiple music sources all in a single touch-based interface.
I have two kids and when they were sick as babies, I usually didn’t get any sleep. The lack of sleep was typically more from my wife waking me up every five minutes asking me to go check on the baby to be sure he was still breathing.
This colorful Game Boy isn’t really an customized old school Nintendo Game Boy. Nah. It’s actually completely made out of paper! Well, it sure fooled me.
When I first saw this, I tried to remember if they ever came out with a Game Boy in these colors.
I was at the LA Auto Show once for the press preview and spent many an hour walking around the show hall drooling over the cars on display. I spent lots of time at the Ferrari display because that is as close as I will get to owning one.
You’ve probably seen a few photos from this year’s Shanghai Expo floating around the Internets. It’s a really big event that’s going on right now in China. It looks like the expo is using the services of the Hai Bao robot to welcome visitors.
Hai Bao was designed by researchers at the University of Zhejiang.
With the abundance of website, blogs and forums dedicated to gaming, one would be inclined to think that Sony could have consulted the information readily available online for “ideas to improve the PlayStation experience.” But no, the company chose to open PlayStation.Blog
As a professional timewaster, my wrists take a lot of punishment. Especially my right wrist; lately it has taken to zapping me with painful needles of hate, demanding that I stop using it. That came out a bit off.
Aaron Alai made sure that prospective employers – and lovers – will remember him. They’ll remember him as the nerd with the business card that lights up.
Touching two points on the card activates the small LED on the lower right of the card.
The guys over at LEGO-fan site Brothers Brick came across these new LEGO sets based on this Summer’s much-anticipated Prince of Persia: Sands of Time motion picture.
The three sets range from a modest 258 piece kit for $29.99
…or actually, you probably shouldn’t do that. But you still will look awfully cool walking around with this big, bad-ass GoW blade that looks just like the one Kratos slashes his enemies with.
This prop-replica of Kratos’ Blade of Chaos is cast from sturdy zinc-aluminum, and has custom etched textures to give it that war-worn look.
The guys over at kuriositas have posted these pics of some awesome Death Star inspired watermelons and cantaloupes.
All you need is a pen knife and a little patience, and you can make your own Death Star melons.
This new robot from Toshiba uses the basic balancing principles found in a Segway to keep its balance and to help around the house. It was unveiled last week in Tokyo.
Wheelie doesn’t have any arms, but it uses the inverse pendulum principle to balance itself.
There are lots of things that I would squander $5,000 on and not think twice about. Most people would probably think these things were a waste of money. None of the ways to part $5K from my wallet has anything to do with music though.
