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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
…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.
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 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.
