The heroes of science. They have changed our world. Did they make it a better place? Sometimes. Not the guys who invented the atomic bomb so much. In general though, these eggheads have bettered our world.
I have a recurring nightmare about being attacked by some sort of creature with too many legs. I’m not sure if it’s from playing too many FPSes, or from reading about Cthulhu. Heck, maybe it’s from visiting the aquarium.
If you think about it, Han Solo frozen in carbonite was Boba Fett’s piggy bank. He turned him in to Jabba The Hutt for a tidy sum of money. Now you can be like Boba Fett and store your money in this Han Solo in Carbonite bank.
Thanks to it’s less-than-stellar internal speaker, there are a lot of iPad speakers to choose from in the market. Personally, I’ve got my sights set on the ORA. It’s the first of its kind that I’ve seen, and so far, I like what I see.
Months after Coca-Cola rolled out their ‘Open Happiness’ vending machines, Pepsi is following suit. They won’t be giving away free bottles of soda for hugs, although you will be able to give people the gift of Pepsi and play a game to score free drinks.
Even if you don’t know his name or story, chances are you’ve probably seen Domo-kun’s face. Which is also his body. And once you’ve seen him, it doesn’t matter if he’s the mascot of Japanese TV station NHK or a holy servant who kills baby animals.
Typically, when we talk about Kickstarter projects here on Technabob, we’re looking at a video game or some sort of gadget or accessory. But some of the most common projects on Kickstarter have nothing to do with electronics.
Some people love to sing while taking a shower. Not to brag, but I’m one of the world’s greatest listeners, so I prefer my bathtime music to come from another source. If you have the same preference, first of all high five!
If you like some of the music that AC/DC has made over the years, like me, it probably pains you to pay full price for a complete album when you only want a couple tracks. Sadly, AC/DC has kept their music off the iTunes digital music store so no one could buy individual tracks – until now.
Say you want to watch a TV program or a video of a recipe while you cook? While you could always bring your smartphone or tablet into the kitchen, there’s always a chance you’ll get it wet or get food stuck on or inside of it.
Everyone loves R2-D2, right? There’s really no reason not to – even if he is made out of cans. That’s right, R2-D2 has been built out a bunch of cans of what look to be sweet corn, Star-Kist tuna and tins of sardines on his chest.
Most of the portable keyboards I’ve seen are too bulky for my taste. Either they’re bigger than the actual device that you want to use it with or they’re twice as thick.
If you’re on the hunt for a portable yet completely functional keyboard for your mobile, then look no further.
While more and more devices are beginning to be able to understand what we’re saying, one problem that we face is that not everything that we communicate is in the form of a verbal cue. With that in mind, the roboticists at the Honda Research Institute have been working on a robot that can not only understand words, but other sounds.
