Can you imagine why a robot would need to yodel? I’ve got no idea because yodeling is fricking annoying in my book. Radio Man was featured in the April 1939 issue of Popular Science, and was the Slim Whitman of early android technology.
Those of you who live in more temperate areas of the world can’t really appreciate how hot it is in Texas. It’s so hot, it’s hawt, southerners drawl because it’s too hot for your tongue to work, you get the idea.
Video games have really come a long way, especially when it comes to marketing. For those too young to remember, CollegeHumor made a totally radical fake commercial for Grand Theft Auto on the NES.

Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories recently introduced their latest non-diabolical creation – the Eggbot. It’s an “open source art robot” that can draw on spherical or ellipsoidal surfaces.

Well, it had to happen sooner or later. Casemod god Benjamin Heckendorn is all grown up and has gone and gotten himself his own TV show.
Okay, it’s just an Internet TV show, and pretty much anyone can have one of those, but Ben is cool, and we’re excited for his new show.
Can you believe that it’s been 15 years since the original Sony PlayStation came out?
In celebration of the dawning of the modern console era (ok, the Dreamcast was really the better console, IMHO), Sony has released this short film documenting the brief history of the PlayStation line…
Geeky is as geek does I always say. If you really want to show off your new iPod nano and prove to the world that you are geek, what you need to do is turn your new nano into a massive square wrist watch.
The amount of money that your wireless carrier wants to charge you if you go over the pathetic allotment they give you for mobile data on many plans should be illegal. If you run out of data and stream single movie, you could be looking at hundreds of dollars in extra fees for the data use.
There are a bunch of new watch designs that have been posted on the Tokyoflash blog. Most interesting is the one from Tynan Mayhew from Canada. What’s amazing is that this comes from a 14-year old kid!
I don’t currently have an air purifier in my house, but I have to say that I’ve never seen an air purifier like this. The Coway AP-1008 is an elegant machine that sets itself apart from the rest with its unique design.
While the big G is promoting their newfangled Instant search, it’s not the only newly unveiled technology from the company. Released just a few days ago, Google Scribe is a text completion service. Google says that the tool’s suggestions are based on what the user has already typed, but that’s not the whole truth.
…and the trunk, and the left shoulder, and the left wrist. And the right knee. You got that? Let’s back up a bit and cover the basics first. The study, which I bet was performed in all seriousness, was performed by psychologists and researchers at Northumbria University in the UK.
Charles Mangin is on a mission to meld Apple’s failed Newton handheld with their highly successsful iPhone. If he manages to pull it off, this is what he thinks it’ll look like.
Can you say “full of win?”
I certainly don’t remember my old Nintendo controller making crazy sounds, but I actually rather like the idea of building synthesizers into old video game controllers.
Gadget hacker Michael Rucci builds his audio mods into old electronic toys and other salvaged parts, but my personal faves are his Nintendo controller synths.
Perfect for the raver that wants to light up like a Christmas tree, or your dad, who likes to get lit like a Christmas tree, this iPhone-controlled LED suit will be the must-have item for the upcoming holidays.
Are you a Doctor Who fan? Do you have a Nintendo Wii? Then you’ll be happy to find out that those swashbucklers at Nintendo came up with an official Doctor Who sonic screwdriver Wii-mote. Pass or want?
