Big Big Cursor: Silly Styli

Big Big Cursor: Silly Styli
Touchscreen devices eschew the mouse in favor of our fingers, and no mouse means no cursor. Or does it? Mike Mak designed a pair of styli for devices with capacitive touchscreens. By “designed” I mean he took the mouse cursor and mouse pointer and enlarged them.

Cooking with Your MacBook Air: All Warranties Voided

Cooking with Your MacBook Air: All Warranties Voided
I’m somewhat anal about keeping my MacBook Pro clean and pristine, but that didn’t stop Mochrom from using his MacBook Air to prepare food. He basically uses his MacBook Air as a kitchen knife. What will the Japanese think of next?

Nike Teases with Air Mag: Back to the Future Shoes to Become Reality?

Death Star Piñata: Stay on Target! Stay on Target!

Death Star Piñata: Stay on Target! Stay on Target!
Star Wars and piñatas – they go together like… um… Star Wars and piñatas. Despite the fact that there’s not that much in common between the two, I still love this Death Star piñata.

NASA Grabs Amazing Moon Landing Site Pics

NASA Grabs Amazing Moon Landing Site Pics
I bet that we have all heard the conspiracy theorists that claim we never actually went to the moon. These folks think that the entire Apollo program was filmed on a movie set. Perhaps to help put these theories to rest once and for all, NASA has changed the orbit recently of the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter or LRO to take some of the highest resolution images of the landing sites for the Apollo missions ever.

ED-7270 Robot Looks Like ED2-D2
R2-D2! It is you! It is you! No wait. Sorry, I got the wrong droid. I’ve been confused ever since that old man worked his wizardry on me when I was on duty at Mos Eisley.

Inflatable X-Wing Fighter Snow Sled is Perfect for Your Hoth Ski Trip

Boston Dynamics BigDog Robot: Will it Eat PIGORASS for Lunch?

Boston Dynamics BigDog Robot: Will it Eat PIGORASS for Lunch?
A reader pointed out that the PIGORASS four-legged robot I mentioned yesterday was somewhat flimsy (I don’t agree) compared to this more sturdy offering from Boston Dynamics. They call it the BigDog and it will most probably eat your real dog for lunch (it can be weaponized).

I’ve found my favorite alarm clock! Created by software engineer/hardware designer/part-time MacGyver Michael Krumpus, the defusable clock works just like the bombs in movies. You can stop it’s alarm within 10 seconds… if you cut the right wire.
