MaKey MaKey Turns Everyday Objects Into Keypads: Me LiKey LiKey
Several days ago we saw Disney’s plan for turning everyday objects – including humans – into touch-sensitive interfaces.

Robot Bird Perches on a Human Hand

Robot Bird Perches on a Human Hand
If a bird in hand is worth two in the bush, what is a robot bird in the hand worth? I have no idea, but this is a robotic bird that is not only capable of flight, but it can also land on a human hand.

Incantor Smartphone Game Comes with Wand: Harry Potter 2.0

Incantor Smartphone Game Comes with Wand: Harry Potter 2.0
Of all fictional weapons, I find the wand to be the least appealing, because it’s a stick. But at the same time it’s really easy to pretend to be a wand-wielding magician, because it’s a stick.

Diablo III Whimsyshire Replaces Cows with Teddy Bears and Ponies [SPOILERS]
Aside from the game’s launch day problems, one of the issues that Blizzard faced with Diablo III was the outrage of some fans regarding the game’s art direction, i.e. that it wasn’t as dark or grim as the previous games.
