Mobile devices make it easy to reach out to other people and stay connected. Most times it’s a blessing, but it can also be a curse. Would it help if you were told which messages will make you feel good or bad?
If you’re not into trucks or work with large industrial equipment, you might not recognize the name Cummins. Cummins is a company that produces powerful diesel engines for all sorts of uses. The most well known use is as the power plant that powers many of the pickup trucks you see cruising the highways.
There are emulators for video game consoles and virtual machines for operating systems. Now someone has come up with an “app player” that makes it possible to run iOS programs into other hardware, particularly Windows and – drum roll please – the BlackBerry PlayBook.
When last we saw iCub, he was learning to crawl like a baby and even count numbers like one. Now he has learned to talk like one. Human instructors have taught the bot to talk like a human infant, learning the names of simple shapes and colors so far.
It’s always refreshing to see people take a technological approach to everyday stuff, like encouraging people to go register for the elections and vote. You might recall how Rock the Vote created the first telephone voter registration system to encourage people to register to vote by picking up the phone.
I love that LEGO launched their Cuusoo website to encourage the crowdsourcing of new ideas for LEGO sets. And while not too many concepts have yet found their way to market, I’m sure that the more practical ones will eventually get produced.
Transformers should always carry their own alcoholic beverages. That way they could drink a toast with Shia LaBeouf after they kick each others asses and wreck our cities with their huge bodies. If Transformers did carry wine with them, I imagine they would look just like this.
Save yourself from boredom while waiting for the next Legend of Zelda game (or remake) with the official Link Figma. This is an action figure of the Link that links all the other Links: the hero from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.
R2-D2 is one of the most beloved robots ever. Chances are that if you are reading this, you already own a piece of R2 merchandise or two. Some of you have tons of R2 items. But do you have a droid that can smoke meat?
How do you take a family portrait when you and your loved ones are thousands of miles apart? You could use Photoshop and stitch your individual pictures into one image, or you could do what artist John Clang did: take a photo of everyone in real time using Skype and a projector.
There’s an old saying that goes something like “it’s better to look good than to feel good,” but if the guys at Ministry of Design have their way, you’ll be able to do both, thanks to their new high-tech shirts.
One thing that men and women stress about constantly is acne. We live in a pretty shallow society where people are often judged by their looks. The unfortunate thing about acne is that, aside from being painful when it’s at its worse, is that it also leave unsightly marks when it heals.
I’m going to be honest. When given the choice between Burger King and McDonald’s, I’m a McDonald’s man. I always have been. Ever since I fell in love with Ronald McDonald got scared by Burger King’s freak of a mascot, I’ve never gone back.
When we were growing up, our parents always told us not to play with our food. But the results of such dalliances can have proven to be quite impressive from time to time. How could you not love a portrait of Sasquatch, made entirely from beef jerky?
