It looks like Otto Dieffenbach of Flyguy Promotions is at it again. This time he is flying a Remote Controlled TARDIS. Since he seems to know what he is doing and hasn’t crashed, he actually does a better job than the Doctor.

Glitter Bomb: Ship Your Enemies Glitter is Pure, Brilliant, Eviiilll
I have a ten-year-old daughter, which means roughly 97% of all the clothing in our home has glitter on it. I’m not sure if all the glitter that ends up on my skin is from the glittery clothing or if ten-year-old girls simply secrete the stuff.

Macintosh Concept Pays Homage to its Ancestor, Needs Food Badly
German gadget blog Curved came up with a concept for a modern Macintosh that combines the Apple of the past with the Apple of the present. Its concept desktop computer mimics the outline of the original Macintosh’s front, but – as is the custom with today’s gadgets – is incredibly thin.

Subtitled R2-D2 Thinks Luke is a Pain in the Ass
One of the things I always wondered about Star Wars is exactly what was R2-D2 saying when he was beeping away excitedly. He spoke some sort of beepy robot language that only C-3P0 seemed to fully understand.

Own Your Own Mech: Kuratasu Starter Kit hits Amazon Japan
Having grown up playing Mechwarrior games you can bet that I want this Kuratasu Starter kit that has turned up on Amazon Japan really badly. The problem is that it’s only a starter kit that isn’t complete and it’s very expensive.

The Motorola Scout 5000 Lets You Track Your Dog Like The Canine NSA
What’s your dog’s name? “Viktor Erstmann von Drakenhoff IV?” That’s a bit much… oh, you call him “Vicky” for short. Still weird, but whatever. Has Vicky ever escaped from your yard? Have you ever wanted to spy on him from the comfort of your computer?

This Seven-Year-Old Gets a Clonetrooper Prosthetic Arm

This Seven-Year-Old Gets a Clonetrooper Prosthetic Arm
The E-NABLE network is very cool: it uses 3D printing to make basic, low-cost prosthetics for children who are growing too quickly to qualify for regular ones. Their latest recipient is Liam Porter from Augusta, Georgia, who was given the limb by John Peterson, who built himself a 3D printer for the purposes of working with E-NABLE.
