Life-Sized Jedi Master Yoda Forces His Way into Your Home

Life-Sized Jedi Master Yoda Forces His Way into Your Home
Do you think you’d learn more about how to harness the powers of the Force by having this life-sized Yoda statue in your living room? The statue stands 30 inches tall and weighs about 22 pounds, so I can only assume that Yoda really only weighs 22 pounds when they say “life-sized”.

Lego Mindstorms Delta Robots Ready to Put Assembly-Line Workers Out of a Job

Lego Mindstorms Delta Robots Ready to Put Assembly-Line Workers Out of a Job
Every time I think I’ve seen LEGOs pushed to the limit of their capabilities, somebody comes along and proves that there’s just that much more you can do with these incredible building blocks. In this particular case, we have a complex assembly line of robots built from only LEGO Mindstorms and standard LEGO pieces.

TS3Cine Camera Shoots 720fps at 720p Resolution

TS3Cine Camera Shoots 720fps at 720p Resolution
These days, there are even cheap consumer cameras that can shoot high-speed video. However, the resolution loss in high speed mode is so abysmal that it pretty much prevents you from shooting the cool sort of slow-motion action shots you really wanted to capture in the first place.

Pixelated Comic Book Superheroes: Let’s Hope the Movies Are as Awesome as These Posters
While I don’t know how good some of these movies will be, I know that hopes are high that The Dark Knight Rises is going to be awesome. Since Thor will lead Marvel Studios to their Avengers movie.

Monsta and Waddler iPhone 4 Cases Set You Strangely Apart
While I don’t think that these would go well with a business suit, these cases from Case-Mate are quite unique. These iPhone 4 cases will set your phone apart from all of the rest, and that can be good or bad.

Fujitsu Lifebooks Cram Pico Projector into Optical Drive Bay
I know that there are many business users that travel all around giving presentations for one thing or another. If  you’re one of these people, or have sat through any of them you know that a projector is almost always required for a bunch of folks to see what you are showing at one time.

Google Chrome Notebooks Coming This Summer?

Google Chrome Notebooks Coming This Summer?
Google had a great product with the Android OS, even if it took a long time to catch on. Once Android caught on it blew up massively. I would bet that Google is hoping its Chrome OS for notebooks will do the same thing, but I have my doubts.

Blink Bike Helmet Perfect for Tron

Blink Bike Helmet Perfect for Tron
When it comes to riding a bike around town or on the highway, the rider has to be aware of the cars zooming around. Often the drivers in those cars are oblivious to anything in their path that isn’t as large as they are.

Fire Trucks Finally Get Pet Oxygen Masks

Fire Trucks Finally Get Pet Oxygen Masks
People need oxygen in the aftermath of a fire to help flush the carbon dioxide from the smoke from their blood so they can breathe better. If you ever wondered what is done to help the pets caught in the same fire as their humans – apparently in the past, the answer was nothing.

Razer Hydra Adds Motion Control to PC Games

Razer Hydra Adds Motion Control to PC Games
The Nintendo Wii is the game console that introduced us to motion controls a few years ago. Since then a bunch of other game consoles and add-ons have surfaced with have motion control aspects. If you are a PC gamer, Razer has a new motion control system for you.

Sony PSP Go Killed in Japan and EU, US to Keep Go-ing

Sony PSP Go Killed in Japan and EU, US to Keep Go-ing
The PSP Go really sucks by most accounts. We have established that and even though the thing saw a price decrease last month, it still isn’t a big seller for Sony. Sony has announced that the go will be discontinued in Japan and Europe already and we assumed that means the US Go would be cut too.

PicoHD5.1 Media Player: Tiny Package Packs a Punch

PicoHD5.1 Media Player: Tiny Package Packs a Punch
Boy, how far we’ve come in the last decade. Just a few years back, the idea of full HD video for the masses was still just a pipe-dream, and now you can get cheap consumer cameras that shoot 1080p video, and Blu-ray players for about $100 that also play back the super-sharp format.

iTable: Giant iPhone Table is Actually an iPhone Dock
If you love the design of your iPhone 4, have I got the ultimate coffee table for you. Not only does the iTable borrow its design cues from the iPhone 4, it actually serves as a docking stereo system for your iPhone as well.

Terminator T-800: Celebrate Skynet’s Arrival in Style

Terminator T-800: Celebrate Skynet’s Arrival in Style
Like most geeks, you’ve probably acknowledged the passing of the day that Skynet became self-aware. Depending on the dates, it should have happened on April 19th, 2011, or worst case, on April 21st, Judgment Day. Needless to say, I hope that Skynet or any AI system plugged into defense systems remains unaware.

Wii 2 Controller to Have 6.2-inch Touchscreen?

Wii 2 Controller to Have 6.2-inch Touchscreen?
Rumors are flying that a new console from Nintendo will ship in the fall. According to various sources, Wii 2, Wii HD or “Project Cafe” as it’s known by insiders, will have one incredible controller/remote. While I don’t know how accurate this IGN mockup is, the idea of a 6.2-inch diagonal touchscreen with 8 buttons is certainly intriguing.

The Freaker Keeps Your Bottles Freakin’ Cold (Or Freakin’ Hot)

The Freaker Keeps Your Bottles Freakin’ Cold (Or Freakin’ Hot)
“Freaker” is probably not a name I’d pick for a bottle/can/jar/glass insulator but that’s just what these folks named theirs. Of course, you probably wouldn’t expect something called the Freaker to be useful or functional, but this one surprisingly is.
