We talked about that new Apple TV when it first launched early this month. The thing is now getting into the hands of geeks around the country and naturally, iFixit has ripped theirs to pieces so you can get your gadget porn fill for the day.
While I did have to take Latin in 7th and 8th grade, most of it has either been stashed away deep in the recesses of my brain or forgotten. Probably the latter. However, I really like the fact that Google Translate can now translate into Latin, which is considered a dead language.
It’s probably of limited use for most of us, but I’d also like to see Ancient Greek, and other dead languages in Google Translate.
Made of plastic pipes, sockets, wire sleeves and other common plumbing and electrical materials, these Robolamps are some of the geekiest and most unique desk lamps we’ve ever seen.
They’re not all menacing like Robolamp Roddock, pictured above.
I’m not sure which market this limited edition Iron Man Mark V briefcase replica is targeting. On the one hand, it’s good for cosplays, and as a toy maybe, especially since the gadget that it’s referencing is perhaps one of the coolest things we’ve seen in sci-fi movies.
OK, I am a geek. I can admit that and have no problem with that fact. I do have standards though, and draw the line when things go from geeky to downright weird. I think the new Batman TDK Utility Pouch may have dissolved that line quite well.
Any man who has ever ended up shopping at the mall with his wife/girlfriend is very familiar with the guy chair. The lone chair sitting there so the guys outside the dressing room holding a purse for their lady have a place to sit while they wait for the inevitable truth, often hours later, that the lady in question didn’t like anything they tried on.
I like the idea of 3D in my home and on my computer, but I refuse to pay a premium for the feature, and then have to wear those stupid glasses. We all know that the tech needed for 3D with no glasses is in development, and for the most part the manufacturers are using the early systems’ need for active glasses as a way to make more money.
Ah Raytheon, just the name scares some guys silly. Raytheon is a defense contractor and they’ve released some new information and videos of their new exoskeleton called the XOS 2. And no, this isn’t science-fiction.
This is the closest that anyone has come to a fully functioning military exoskeleton.
I have to say that this Predator costume by Shawn Thorsson of Petaluma, CA, is really amazing. This costume was made for Halloween 2005, but this write-up and photos are recent. I wonder what Shawn will make for this year’s Halloween?
Shawn hand-sculpted most of the features of his costume, using upholstery foam, liquid latex and a whole bunch of duct tape.
What is it with George Lucas’ incessant need to monkey with his original Star Wars flicks? First, he had to go and add a bunch of stupid, out-of-place CGI to the last major re-release, and now he’s planning on releasing them in 3D.
The Dreamcast’s VMU was a failed experiment. It was a great idea – a storage device that also played games – but in reality it didn’t get enough support from developers. Goteking’s hack on the other hand, was a great success, stuffing the new 6th generation iPod nano into a VMU.
These Formation Arts trading figures of everyone’s favorite time-traveling warriors will have you doing a Poyozo Dance. Measuring 2.5 to 4 inches, the dioramas feature Crono, Robo, Lucca, Ayla, Frog and Magus of Chrono Trigger, the game so nice they released it thrice.
Not too long ago I mentioned that a dude had created the coolest Halloween costume ever and it was a life size power loader from Aliens the movie. That thing was epic and today we have another epic DIY costume created by a guy that is a large version of R2D2.
The success that Apple has had with the iPad means that just about every maker of gadgets out there that can build a tablet wants one on the market. The latest iPad competitor to land is from RIM and is called the Blackberry PlayBook.
Logitech has unveiled a new headset for gamers that will work with multiple gaming devices. The headset will connect with three different audio sources like the PS3, Xbox, and PC. It also supports wireless voice chats for in game audio and more.
