After months of speculation, and numerous leaks, Apple finally took wraps off the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. From the exterior, the most notable changes are the 4.7″ display on the iPhone 6, and the 5.5″ display on the iPhone 6 Plus.
This robot, developed at Professor George M. Whitesides’ lab at Harvard University has recently become untethered, so it is off the leash. This creepy crawler is super tough and can function in subzero temperatures, 40 km/h winds, puddles of up to 5 centimeters of water, and 3,000 Kelvin methane flames for up to 50 seconds.
Here’s a great story where technology, art and compassion meet. e-NABLE is an organization that designs affordable 3D printed prosthetic hands for those in need. e-NABLE volunteer Aaron Brown recently thought of making a colorful prosthetic hand to show to a children’s hospital.
Cats are pretty cool. They are always up to something nefarious. Dogs are mostly too dumb to be sneaky; a cat on the other hand will do something bad and blame it on the dog. I wish cats could walk around on their hind legs, that would be awesome.
Redditor veriix wanted to have an Oculus Rift racing simulation setup, but he also wanted to stay married to his wife. So he gave up on his dream of having a conventional racing rig… and built something way cooler.
TiVo’s upcoming DVR is the Iron Throne of couch potatoes. The TiVo Mega comes with a ridiculous 24TB of hot-swappable storage. That’s enough to store 26,000 hours – about 3 years! – of SD videos or about 4,000 hours of HD videos.
Communication is a messy business. If it weren’t for miscommunication, Hiroshima and Nagasaki may well have never been bombed, the light brigade would have survived the Crimean War, the Korean war could have been averted, the Battle of Karansebes wouldn’t have been so much like an Adam Sandler movie, and the Mars Climate Orbiter would have completed its mission.
This neat adventurer’s kit was designed by Mitch Barchi who has a lifelong passion for role-playing games. It makes D&D adventuring a very classy thing. If you have a butler or manservant you should definitely call him over and have him bring it to the table.
The idea of a robot vacuum is awesome. The fleshy human gets to sit around playing Team Fortress 2/reading awesome books/checking Technabob, and the soulless robot with no sense of boredom vacuums the whole house; it’s perfect.
Guardians of the Galaxy was an awesome movie and a huge summer hit. The movie and its characters really resonated with cosplayers – especially when it comes to Groot. Now you can make an awesome Groot costume for about what it costs a family of four to go see a movie.
I have always been a fan of films that have an orchestral soundtrack behind the action on screen. Some films have normal music, and that’s cool, but an orchestra is my favorite. One of the cool things about The Lord of the Rings to me was the soundtrack.
Darth Vader was a very serious guy. I can only imagine he would be more than willing to Force choke the crap out of someone for being late. No one on the Super Star Destroyer Executor wore a watch, but if they did I imagine they would have looked something like these Star Wars Imperial Chronometers.
The last time we featured augmented reality company DAQRI, it had borderline gimmicky applications for its specialty. But DAQRI is dreaming big with its smart helmet. Meant for field workers, the helmet leverages augmented reality to help professionals get around, learn, document and overall perform their job better.
