We’ve seen a hexacopter with six legs, but this quadcopter takes after birds instead of spiders. This particular quadcopter is Vishwa Robotics’ test unit. New Scientist reports that the company is developing leg add-ons for “small US air force drones.” The legs will allow drones to perch on branches, wires and other objects in order to survey and conserve energy.
Sure, you could give your sweetie some flowers this Valentine’s Day and make it just like all the rest, but wouldn’t it be better to get her something to celebrate her geeky side? Here, take this Legendary Hero 8-Bit Heart Bouquet.
If there is one thing we don’t have enough of, it is tactical dinosaurs. Check out this combat-ready velociraptor from Blue Force Gear that was on display at a recent trade show. I would ride this thing into battle in a second.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned when I travel, it’s that my iPhone 5 will run out of battery before I finish the day. When I’m at home, it’s fine, but out and about, I find that searching for networks, GPS, and other everyday usage burns through battery like it’s nobody’s business.
221B Baker Street. Do you know that address? Sherlock Holmes fans know that this is where the world’s greatest detective resides. The apartment and address are a big part of the legend that is Sherlock Holmes.
If you are as big a fan of crispy, crunchy bacon as I am all you will need to hear is this- Bacon Soap. If you need a bit more explanation, here it is. ThinkGeek has some hand soaps in bars that smell like manly food and drink.
I am not a fan of Valentine’s Day. My wife always wants something expensive or changes her mind 57 times until I can’t remember what she wanted and I give up. I stopped buying flowers because the evil florists up the price of roses so much during the lead up to V-Day and the things will cut you with thorns and die in two days anyway.
Bed, the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise quilt. Its five-year mission: to keep you warm and toasty, to sleep out long nights and new hibernations; to boldly go where no man has cuddled up before.
Medicom has released a 400% (11″ tall) Bearbrick of the 60 meter-tall Colossal Titan, one of the giants terrorizing the poor citizens in the world of Shingeki no Kyojin, aka Attack on Titan. I’m not sure if there’s a 1% bearbrick inside.

If there’s one thing that today’s flat-screen TVs have led to is a lack of the sort of unique designs that CRTs used to offer. I suppose this is a good thing, as HDTVs are designed to focus our attention on the image itself.
Oscilloclock shop owner Aaron’s latest offering is based on a vectorscope, a special kind of oscilloscope used to analyze the quality of television or video signals. Like its brethren, the digital age has reduced the need for vectorscopes, but Aaron can make them useful again as clocks.
People treat their pets as members of their family, and there is little that they wouldn’t do to ensure the safety of their furry buddies. The Beluvv Puppy tracker is one of those things that can help them do just that.
I’m sure you’ve seen videos of floppy disk drives rigged to play music. Simon Schoar took the hack to the next level with RumbleRail, a modular floppy jukebox that plays MIDI files loaded to its SD card slot.
The family that sleeps in a giant sleeping bag together… is just weird. Regardless, this sleeping bag is big enough to fit your family inside. It’s great for unexpected emergency situations like if you’ve lost your house or something, but otherwise you are just going to drive each other crazy, hitting each other with your elbows and whatnot.
