Anyone who wants to disturb Rick Prescott while he’s working will have to pass by his receptionist first – a heat-seeking Nerf gun.
Prescott’s awesome mod, which won MAKE’s Gadget Freak Design Contest, consists of a Nerf Vulcan Blaster hooked up to several Devantech TPA81 Thermal Sensors that are controlled by an ATMega 168 8-bit processor.
I think it’s safe to say that every year since 1997 there’s at least one customary rumor or update about Duke Nukem Forever. First it was out of anticipation but nowadays it’s probably become tradition. I guess that time of the year has arrived.
LaCie today rolled out an unusual new USB flash drive, which is so tiny you can leave it plugged into your computer all the time and never notice it sticking out of the side.
The MosKeyto flash drive is just 20mm long, and 14mm of that is the USB connector – leaving just a 6mm stub sticking out of your computer.
So did you know that Portal and Left 4 Dead actually came out back in the 1980s? Yeah, me neither. But the guys at Gamervision claim to have dug up these “lost” 1986 commercials for the two 21st-century games.
I will be the first to admit that getting around big airports is a massive pain in the rear. That is one of the main reasons why I never fly coupled with the fact that I always get stuck next to the 400-pound guy with a sweat problem.
Fresh off Nippon News Network, it seems that Japanese robots are ready to invade your home. However, they’re not coming to enslave you and become your robot masters, they’re supposed to make your life easier. At least that’s what they’re saying now.
Generally, the geeks over at the FCC that work on testing all the gadgets we tend to love and use constantly are just trying to be sure that the gear doesn’t cause interference of some sort that will make planes drop out of the skies and cars honk uncontrollably.
OK, these aren’t really C-3PO USB flash drives, but they do bear a resemblance. I’ve rarely seen golden robots of any kind, except in Star Wars. This cute ‘bot also looks like it’s got the body of a LEGO minifig.
This little device is actually quite dangerous in the wrong hands. It’s powerful enough to induce headaches, dizziness, irritation and even vomiting to everyone in its vicinity. That being said, it’s an extremely nerdy way to get back at bullies.
…but they’re not for sale either. Not yet anyway.
This wonderfully apt creation was made by redditor TriangleMen’s friend using “a CnC table and spare time/metal.” The picture below would have been more awesome if they placed the bookends and books on the opposite sides of a wall.
Apple today took wraps off their brand-spanking new Apple TV, and it’s taking the device in a new direction from previous models. By removing the hard drive, and moving to a streamed-only delivery model, Apple was able to both shrink the Apple TV and get the price way down.
You might recall back in early July, I mentioned a person that had created her own pair of self-lacing Nike shoes like the ones McFly wore in Back to the Future II. Looking beyond the giant servo on the back and the atrocious color scheme of that original offering, the concept was pretty cool.
Last week, the popular social news site Digg overhauled its website, turning it into a hybrid social bookmarking/social networking site. It hasn’t been an easy transition. Many users despise the new look and have taken it to new lengths to protest.
