Robot Artist Draws Caricatures in Three Minutes

Robot Artist Draws Caricatures in Three Minutes
Not content to just take our medical and factory jobs, robots are now eying the art field, with an emphasis on creating caricatures. After robots one day hit the street and earn money by drawing people, caricature will become a lost art to humans.

Marvel ReEvolution Inifinite Comics and Marvel AR App Announced
If you’re really into comic books from Marvel, you may get excited at the thought of Marvel ReEvolution, even if details are still pretty sketchy. ReEvolution is Marvel’s new plan to combine traditional comic books and digital media into one seamless source of content for iPhones, iPads and other devices.

Game of Thrones Gets Crocheted: Winter is Crafting

Game of Thrones Gets Crocheted: Winter is Crafting
I have a confession to make. I didn’t have time to watch Game of Thrones season one when it was first on, but I just got through all the episodes last month, and it was spectacular.

Peugeot DL 122: The Bike for the Computing Commuter

Peugeot DL 122: The Bike for the Computing Commuter
Commuting on bikes is becoming more and more popular, with the rising costs in for fuel and public transportation and the reward that you can actually get fit while getting to work on time. Here’s an interesting concept for an urban commuter bike designed by Lauren Picard for Peugeot, the French car maker.

Mass Effect 3 Anime to Focus on James Vega

Mass Effect 3 Anime to Focus on James Vega
One of the coolest games I have played in a long time is the new Mass Effect 3. The game launched just last week, and of course is selling very well. There are already more than just video games in the franchise, with at least one very interesting novel to go along with Mass Effect that I know of.

Smartphone Notebook 2 for iPhone 4/4S: Unexpectedly Useful?

Smartphone Notebook 2 for iPhone 4/4S: Unexpectedly Useful?
The Smartphone Notebook 2 from the Korean studio Nothing Design Group integrates your iPhone with a notebook – but I’m not talking about a laptop – it’s a paper-based notebook that has a special notch carved into all of its pages so that your iPhone can be cradled inside of it.

i4Siri Lets You Run Siri on Older Apple Devices, Makes New iPad Seem Old

i4Siri Lets You Run Siri on Older Apple Devices, Makes New iPad Seem Old
Apple has not made their virtual assistant Siri available outside of the iPhone 4S – not on the new Apple TV, not even on the new iPad. But the jailbreak community thinks differently and has come up with a way for older Apple devices to use Siri thanks to two apps: Spire and i4Siri.

Double Barrel 1911 Semi-Automatic Pistol: Two Times the Gun

Double Barrel 1911 Semi-Automatic Pistol: Two Times the Gun
I used to think that Dirty Harry packed the most hardcore weapon with his .44 Magnum. I’m not sure if that’s still the most powerful handgun in the world. Probably not. Certainly not after this double barrel semi-automatic.

Men In Black Neuralyzer Replica Doesn’t Work. Or Does It? I Can’t Remember.

Men In Black Neuralyzer Replica Doesn’t Work. Or Does It? I Can’t Remember.
The Neuralyzer is one of the most powerful gadgets in science fiction, able to erase memories in a flash. So I guess it’s a good thing that Factory Entertainment’s 1:1 scale replica of the Men In Black’s signature tool doesn’t actually work, unless you’re looking to blind someone temporarily.

Zento Luminous LED Door Handle Lights the Way Out

Zento Luminous LED Door Handle Lights the Way Out
Planes and theaters might have lights to guide people to the exits in case of emergency, but most people don’t have that kind of system in their very own homes.

Ninja Remote Trolls TVs Everywhere

Ninja Remote Trolls TVs Everywhere
This wouldn’t be the first gadget which is designed to mess with infrared remote control systems, but this one is designed to work it harder, make it better, do it faster and make it stronger than any of the previous gadgets.

Luke Doesn’t Stand a Chance Against the Almighty Wampug

Luke Doesn’t Stand a Chance Against the Almighty Wampug
You would be forgiven for thinking that the following video is George Lucas’ latest attempt to re-edit Empire Strikes Back, but it’s not. Lucas could never create something so cute. His idea of cute is Jar-Jar and little annoying Anakin.

The Grippy Pad Holds Your Items in Place with Gecko Feet Tech

The Grippy Pad Holds Your Items in Place with Gecko Feet Tech
Have you ever wondered how a gecko is able to climb walls with ease, and hold itself on ceilings? Well, this post will not answer your questions, because my good friend still has $50 on the suction cup theory and I don’t want to burst his bubble.

Darth Vader Riding a Unicycle, in a Kilt, Playing Bagpipes

Darth Vader Riding a Unicycle, in a Kilt, Playing Bagpipes
I don’t know what it is about the Dark Lord of the Sith riding a unicycle, wearing a kilt and playing bagpipes that is so funny, but every time I watch this video it cracks me up.

Back to the Future Flying DeLorean Quadrotor: Shut Up and Take My Money!

Back to the Future Flying DeLorean Quadrotor: Shut Up and Take My Money!
I just recently ordered myself one of those AR.Drone 2.0 quadrotors to play with, but now that I’ve seen this thing I’m totally jealous. What you’re looking at here isn’t a scene from a movie, it’s a totally custom-built flying quadrocopter built to look like Doc Brown’s DeLorean from Back to the Future.

Darth Vader Goes Surfing

Darth Vader Goes Surfing
The last time we saw Darth Vader on holiday, he was just trying to relax. This time around, he actually goes surfing in the ocean. Will the powers of the Dark Side help him conquer the waves?
