The original Predator is one of my favorite action movies of the ’80s. I don’t feel the same about Predator 2 with Danny Glover – he just didn’t live up to Arnie. Apparently there was a video game based on Predator 2, which somehow I missed back in the day.
NECA has a new action figure that ships in a vintage looking reproduction of the box that video game shipped in.
I am a big fan of the sci-fi/action flick The Fifth Element. It is one of my all time favorite Bruce Willis movies and he has made some seriously good movies over the years. Funko is finally bringing out a series of Pop!
The past week, more than 15,000 visitors at the National Museum of American History helped build the world’s largest LEGO United States flag. It’s made of over 100,000 bricks and measures 9.5ft x 14ft.
LEGO employees Dan and Chris Steininger designed the impressive collaborative artwork.
Last year, we featured the Nomad, a desktop CNC mill. Toolbotics’ Tooli is also a desktop CNC machine, but it’s meant for arts and crafts. Its four optional heads lets you automate a variety of tasks, from drawing to assembling small items.
Tooli’s plotter head lets you draw with pens or markers as well as cut with its knife.
It’s July 4th weekend – a time for cookouts and fireworks all across the country. And where there are fireworks, there’s danger. So the government has taken it upon themselves to give us a fireworks safety demonstration video.
If you love watching fireworks that blow mannequins up, you are going to love this.
We love our high priced ultra-thin smartphones, but we don’t stop to think about how hot they can get in the summer, especially when charging. What to do? Chevy is on it. The automaker is introducing a smartphone air conditioner in their new cars.
This Active Phone Cooling system adds an air conditioning vent that directs cool air directly onto your smartphone while it’s charging.
Wow. Just wow. I just finished watching this 2011 video of two Ultra Hal chatbots by Zabaware having a conversation. It is creepy as anything. The conversation goes down all kinds of weird roads and it all devolves into a strangely adult place.
If you are nor familiar with it, Ultra Hal learns from conversations with other people and through Twitter as it studies human to human chat.
There are several kinds of robots; those that are built scientific research, those that are built for factory tasks, rescue robots, and more. Some are built simply to fight other robots and then laugh at the other guy and brag.
These tables have amazing legs, even if they are alien colored. These wacky tables were developed by Vick Vanlian, a furniture and interior designer from Lebanon. They’re from the BFF Console Tables line. They are sexy, functional and weird, sort of like the Leg Lamp from A Christmas Story.
These tables are painted in bright colors and supported by one or two pairs of female legs in high heels.
I’ve never played the Kingdom Hearts video game or watched it be played so I’m not sure what the deal is with all the black leather and chains. All I know is that each time I see Kingdom Hearts Mickey in his black leather and shiny buckles I think of the Pulp Fiction “bring out the gimp” scene.
If you are a fan of the Disney x Final Fantasy crossover series, here is a trio of action figures from the franchise that you might want to add to your collection.
There are four action figures in the set, including Organization XII Version King Mickey, Halloween Town Version Sora with a Pumpkinhead key blade and two Jack Skellington figures.
Back in 2012, we featured Bounce Imaging’s concept for a throwable camera that could stream a 360º image to a mobile device. The device is now on sale, and while many of its proposed features didn’t make the cut its basic functions are intact.
The Explorer is equipped with six 800×480 black and white cameras.
Growing up, I had a giant slot car set and thought it was the most awesome thing ever. My friends and I didn’t typically race like normal people though. What we did was something only 8-year-olds would think is fun.
