While LaCie isn’t new to the rugged hard drive market segment, they’re about to release a miniaturized version of their popular Neil Poulton designed hard drives, which are shock, drop and rain-resistant.
Last week, we saw how girls can show off their gamer sides by putting on some gamer necklaces by Deadly Pretty Design. As a girl who’s really into video games herself, I can say that I definitely can’t wait to get my hands on one of those necklaces.
If you follow space related news, you know that the shuttle fleet has been officially retired and for most of the coming years American astronauts will hitch a ride on Russian spacecraft to get to the International Space Station.
Some engineering students at Stanford get to take a class that might be the coolest class ever called Experimental Robotics. Being the geeks they are, some of the students opted to build a robot arm that could have a lightsaber fight with you using foam lightsabers.
Want to take panoramic photos with a single click? How about a video of your surroundings without having to sweep your camera around like a fool? Soon that may be possible, and not because of a fancy new digital camera case.
