I’ve never been one to care anything for the arcane, but I like some shows that dabble in those sort of things on TV. Take “Penny Dreadful,” I like that show, and large part it’s thanks to Vanessa Ives, played by Eva Green.
Last year MIT’s Tangible Media Group went viral because of its real time shape-copying machine. But one of its latest efforts blows that machine out of the water. Called THAW, it’s a software system that allows smartphones and personal computers to communicate graphically through their respective displays.
That Doctor Who band that you always wanted to get together is now possible thanks to this TARDIS guitar. This 3-string guitar is powerful enough to shred Daleks, kill Cybermen, and free Time Lords from imprisonment in time.
Earlier this year we saw Bunnie and Xobs’ Novena, the (mostly) open source laptop. Here’s another hacker- and maker-oriented laptop, the Pi-Top. Launching on Kickstarter soon, Pi-Top will be based on the Raspberry Pi.
Pi-Top is the brainchild of Ryan Dunwoody and Jesse Lozano.
Mystery Science Theater 3000 was taken from us too soon. We all miss the wisecracks and bad movies. Well, Manos: The Hands of Fate must be at work because now it is making a comeback thanks to a deal struck by Vimeo to stream 80 episodes of the series.
For a lot of people, paying for a major surgery for their beloved dog or cat is too much. As sad as it is, the animal’s time has come. As an animal gets smaller and less cuddly, the likelihood of major veterinary care also seems to get smaller.
Pebble has announced that it has released the latest firmware for its smartwatch bringing the software to version 2.5. The update brings with it a myriad of fixes and improvements, but the big thing is support for emoji.
We’ve seen a couple of compact machines that can print, scan or mill objects. Fedor Gridnev and Elena Gaidar want to raise the bar for affordable workshop machines with the 5axismaker. It’s a 5-axis milling machine, a 3D printer, a 3D scanner, a water jet cutter and a wire cutter in one.
You can play with your cakes and eat them too with ThinkGeek’s Classic Game Controller Silicone Mold. Each mold makes six 2.9″ controllers, a pair each of the NES, Sega Genesis and the PlayStation controllers. I bet the Xbox is blushing ’cause it’s not considered old yet.
We heard the first grumblings about a new standalone movie in the Marvel universe for Deadpool a while back. All I know of Deadpool is what I saw of him in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Ryan Reynolds played the sword-wielding hero in that film and was eventually turned into a mute bad guy trying to kill Wolverine.
I’ve been slimed! Oh yeah? Then we need to beat the ever-loving hell out of that mucus-green ghoul and send him back to Mucinex land. Start smashing it with your proton streams! If any spectral candy falls out, I call dibs!
My daughter has a tablet and the only thing she does on it is play Minecraft. If she wants to play on my phone, Minecraft is the game she goes after. Sony may have just hit one out of the park by offering Minecraft for the PS Vita.
If the 3D Pocketcopter is the real deal, you won’t need to shell out hundreds of dollars for a simple airborne camera. The battery-powered device is controlled wirelessly over Wi-Fi or Bluetooth and works with iOS, Android and Windows Phone devices.
