Optoma is back with more budget-friendly projectors, and this time it’s focusing on gamers with its Game Time series. The GT720 is the most expensive model in the series, and its meant for PS3 and Xbox 360 owners.
Engadget has scored pics of what is supposed to be a prototype of the next version of the iPhone. The device, which looks a narrow, flat-backed iPhone, was reportedly found “on the floor of a San Jose [California?]
Actually, I’m not sure you can actually refer to a Transformer as a balloon “animal”, so we’ll just call him a balloon robot from here on. This 7-foot tall, 5-foot wide Optimus Prime was made from over 500 balloons.
Balloon sculptor HappyCabbie first made a Megatron sculpture a couple of years back, but it looks like decided his Transformer balloon robot army wouldn’t be complete without good old Optimus Prime.
I don’t know what it is with cheap-o novelty makers and their insistence on making mock versions of everyday objects that intentionally jolt you with electricity. I suppose we can blame those old Adams joy buzzer tricks for inspiring such malevolent goods.
A rare genetic disease called Williams Syndrome causes “mild to moderate mental retardation, elfin facial features and gregarious social behavior;” a recent study published in the journal Current Biology theorizes that children with Williams Syndrome also have no racial bias.
If you’re too cheap to go out and buy an actual iPad, you might just be in luck – if you happen to live in China, that is.
This somewhat out-of-proportion iPad clone comes to us courtesy of a brand called Jumper.
The day my iPad came through the door, my kids were all over me to let them play with it. My 5-year-old daughter calls it the “big iPhone” and loves to play games on it. My son likes the thing, but he isn’t a big fan of looking down at the screen for watching movies.
Even if this robot might seem like it’s too expensive for us, those nutty Japanese apparently have money to burn on robots. At least this new robot was built for people to actually play with, not just as a demo or research ‘bot as we often see.
Isamaro is made by a Tokyo-based firm named Robotma.
I wondered how long it would take for someone to hack the Amazon Kindle in order to play games. Unfortunately, from what I’ve seen, the games don’t look all that cool on that monochrome e-ink screen.
In this video, the Kindle plays Super Mario Bros and it’s got no sound, it’s slow, and it’s only available in black and white.
Put your glasses on, grab your books and boot up your PC, because it’s time to play Are You Certifiable?, a game that will help you find out if you’re ready to earn a Microsoft Certification (an IT nerd badge, if you will).
The guys at Online Schools scoured the Internet to come up with a lengthy but entertaining infographic about robots. It contains a lot of quiz show-type trivia, like the fact that the earliest known robot was a steam powered one, invented in 400 BC, that most robots are cow milkers, or that people who own a Roomba often clean their floors before putting the little spoiled brat to work.
Given the fact that I’ve probably spent at least a gazillion hours in my professional careers sitting in mind-numbing meetings, this device is definitely something that I need.
The $25 Bring Tim! timer should be standard issue in every corporate conference room.
I am not big on saving things. Typically, once I get tired of something or bored with it I throw it away or give it away. For years, I carried my Atari 2600 from my youth with me each time I moved, even though I never played it.
