From Trashcan to R/C Android ‘Bot

From Trashcan to R/C Android ‘Bot
I think the Android OS is pretty cool and I like the ecosystem of devices that Android spawned. I have seen more than a few robots and toys that look like the little green Android mascot over the years since Android launched.

Artist Uses Leaves as a Canvas for Awesome Art

Artist Uses Leaves as a Canvas for Awesome Art
I have seen a lot of art in my time and much of it isn’t that impressive to me. I have seen people use just about everything to make their art. I have never seen anyone use leaves from various trees to make their artworks.

Spazzi Dancebot Gets His Robot Groove On

Spazzi Dancebot Gets His Robot Groove On
If I were a dancing robot, I would be like Spazzi. I don’t get into all-out dancing like you see in clubs. The most dance you are going to get out of me is a little head nodding and the 7th grade lets spin in a circle slow dance.

Willow Garage Studies Ways to Help the Disabled Using its PR2 Robot

Willow Garage Studies Ways to Help the Disabled Using its PR2 Robot
From the time I was born, my grandfather was paralyzed from the waist down and spent his days sitting in a wheelchair. I never really thought it was strange that he couldn’t walk growing up; it’s just the way he was to me.

SpaceX Breaks Ground on Launch Site for Gigantic Falcon Heavy Rocket

SpaceX Breaks Ground on Launch Site for Gigantic Falcon Heavy Rocket
I wasn’t around during the Apollo days when those massive rockets were shooting men into space on their journey to the moon. The space shuttles are all I have ever known as far as space travel goes.

Star Wars-themed Lamborghini Murcielago Goes From Here to Far, Far Away in 12 Parsecs

Star Wars-themed Lamborghini Murcielago Goes From Here to Far, Far Away in 12 Parsecs
Okay maybe it’s not that fast, but I dare you to show me geeky car that can go faster than this bad boy. Shane, I see your H-Wing Honda and raise you a Lamborghini Murcielago. The Star Wars-themed vinyl wrap was done by SS Customs for Team Golden Empire. The Murcielago LP-640 was used by Team Golden Empire in the goldRush Rally 3, which from what I can understand is a luxury rally tour event for high rollers to show off their cars and party in various high-class locations across America.

Lethal Pro Stand Secures Gadgets, Scares Owners

Lethal Pro Stand Secures Gadgets, Scares Owners
The Joby Gorillapod has a new challenger in the versatile gadget holder/stand game. The Lethal Pro by Zoll may not have an animal in it’s name, but it looks very much like one,  and it’s not just for looks either.

Pac-Man Swimsuit: Ghosts in the Pool

Pac-Man Swimsuit: Ghosts in the Pool
What’s the last time you saw Inky, Blinky, Pinky and Clyde hanging out by the poolside and sipping on piña coladas? If you answered “never”, think again, thanks to this Pac-Man one-piece swimsuit.

Zelda Totally Should Have Had a Portal Device

Zelda Totally Should Have Had  a Portal Device
I’ll try and keep this one pretty short and sweet. Now that I’ve seen this video clip of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past with the small addition of an Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device, I can never envision playing the game without one.

Turbine-Powered Batmobile Hits the Streets

Turbine-Powered Batmobile Hits the Streets
I will admit that while I have seen all of the Batman flicks they have all been crazy cheesy until Christian Bale took over in the recent Christopher Nolan-helmed films. Bale and Nolan took Batman and made it much more real and gritty.

Griffin Helo TC R/C Helicopter May Be Kyosho Chopper in Disguise

Griffin Helo TC R/C Helicopter May Be Kyosho Chopper in Disguise
A little while back we talked a bit about the very cool looking Kyosho iOS controlled helicopter from Japan that had surfaced. The thing reminds me a lot of the Parrot AR.Drone in a smaller and cheaper form.

H-Wing Carfighter is the Star Wars Geek Dream Ride

H-Wing Carfighter is the Star Wars Geek Dream Ride
If you are a geek, be a geek dammit. Just look at this dude named Shawn. He has embraced his inner Star Wars geek and turned his Honda into his own H-Wing Carfighter – and its epic.

Woman Wants to Have Prosthetic Eye-Camera: the Fifteen Thousand Dollar Woman

Woman Wants to Have Prosthetic Eye-Camera: the Fifteen Thousand Dollar Woman
I’m sure some of you still remember Rob Spence and his Eyeborg project, which aims to develop a video camera that fits in a prosthetic eye, effectively substituting for the one Spence lost when he was a kid.

Fleet Commander: the Best Star Wars Game to Never Exist

Fleet Commander: the Best Star Wars Game to Never Exist
…not officially anyway. Arthur Nishimoto, a graduate student at the University of Illinois’ Electronic Visualization Laboratory (EVL), is currently working on a touch-based real-time strategy game based on the Star Wars universe. The rest of us will probably never be able to play it though, mostly because it’s for research, but also because it requires a huge touchscreen to play. Nishimoto calls his game Fleet Commander.

Protect Your Hard Drive Secrets With a Simple Sticker

Protect Your Hard Drive Secrets With a Simple Sticker
While I don’t think that hackers need any info on how to destroy their data in case of an FBI raid, other people might need a helping hand. Here’s the easiest way to destroy your hard drive, in case of an emergency.

Rollei’s Bullet HD Action Camera Shoots Pictures, Not People

Rollei’s Bullet HD Action Camera Shoots Pictures, Not People
Rollei’s Bullet HD Action Camera sort of reminds me of that 1938 revolver that shot a picture when you pulled the trigger. I wouldn’t want to be the person who’s picture was being taken with that thing, since, you know, it would probably be my last and all.
