Portal Diagram Blanket: After Testing, There Will Be Resting
Fans of Portal will immediately recognize the icons on this blanket from those instruction posters at the entrance of each of Aperture Labs’ test chambers. It seems to cover most of the basics, from Weighted Companion Cube use to turret avoidance, to accelerating via portals.

Own Justin Bieber’s Steampunk Robot Arm
I didn’t even know that Justin Bieber had a steampunk robot arm, but then again, I don’t really follow the Biebs. I’m not exactly in his target demo. Apparently, he donned this curious bit of steampunk wear for a photo shoot and a holiday music video a few months back.

Green Manhole Cover Harnesses Kinetic Energy
We see a lot of green concepts around here and while some of them seem pretty obvious, others clearly took more thought to come up with. The latest green concept is this manhole cover called the Fuel Cover and it certainly falls into that second category of things you need to think about.

Robot Teaches Itself to Walk, Just Not Very Well

Robot Teaches Itself to Walk, Just Not Very Well
I recently showed you a video in which a Gundam mech taught itself to walk using some sort of “genetic algorithm”. Around the same time, it turns out engineers have been giving real robots the tools they need to walk on their own.

Zumreed X2 Hybrid Headphones Double as Speakers
Your headphones are great, but they just aren’t loud enough for when you want to share a cool song that you’re listening to, or for when you have an incessant need to incessantly annoy your incessantly irritable friend with a good dose of Kelly Clarkson.

The Last of Us Screenshots Look Killer!

The Last of Us Screenshots Look Killer!
I am a sucker for movies that show the end of days after disaster, zombies, war or whatever. What would happen, and how the survivors would go on after we were most of us were gone has always been intriguing to me.

Transition Flying Car to Be on Hand at New York Auto Show

Transition Flying Car to Be on Hand at New York Auto Show
I don’t know if you remember the toys or the cartoon from back in the 1980s called MASK. That was one my favorite shows and had a bunch of the toys that were cars, trucks, and motorcycles that turned into other things.

Company of Heroes Complete Campaign Released for Mac

Company of Heroes Complete Campaign Released for Mac
The Mac has never been known as a machine that has a lot of games released for it. That’s too bad, since Mac hardware is certainly up to the challenge these days. Maybe one day the Mac might see games that get released for it on launch day, but right now it does not happen often.

Skimpy Dovahkiin Female Armor Wouldn’t Stop an Arrow to the Knee

Skimpy Dovahkiin Female Armor Wouldn’t Stop an Arrow to the Knee
