Today, Microsoft took wraps off of their shiny new gaming console, the Xbox One (formerly known as Xbox 720 or Durango.) If you can believe it, it’s been nearly eight years since the original Xbox 360 came out – the same year YouTube launched, and almost two years before the iPhone came out.
I’ve become a convert of Bluetooth speakers, because of their usefulness and their multiple functions. Granted, I probably wouldn’t have bought myself one the first time out, but after reviewing a demo unit, I was sold on the concept.
Detroit is working on a Robocop statue, so of course Edmonton, Canada wants their own statue now. Not just any statue, mind you. They want a 1,000 foot tall statue of Wolverine. If this keeps up we are going to have superhero statues everywhere.
Behold the power of the Dark Side. I always knew that Darth Vader had a cold heart and now he is putting it to good use keeping beer and booze chilled. He is basically a caped refrigerator and that’s a far better trick than being good with a lightsaber or Force-choking some guy.

We’ve seen a lot of cool costumes over the years and many look amazing, but this Spider-Man costume may be the most movie accurate costume we’ve ever seen. It isn’t just the details, but the quality is simply amazing too.
Sony today posted a video announcing that more details about the PS4 will be revealed during E3. In digging through the 39-second-long video, I found plenty of juicy tidbits which give a sense of the industrial design of Sony’s next-gen console.
Most of the replicas I’ve seen are of robots, vehicles and weapons. The inspiration behind Darius Bode’s creations is a lot humbler than that. But it’s one that is quite intriguing when you see it in action: a trash compactor.
For a technology that’s still largely in its infancy, you can do some things with 3D printing that are pretty much impossible with any other technique. Take, for instance, these intricate 3D-printed mobiles.
One of the things you learn in the world of geekdom is that any time you slap some horizontally-chasing red LEDs into something, it’s instantly transformed into Cylon technology. But I always thought if you did it to the front of a vehicle, it’s a reference to Knight Rider’s K.I.T.T.
