It’s really hard to be a drone enthusiast right now. There are too many laws restricting your movement – with more coming, people wanting to shoot your drone from the sky, and now eagles. If this video is any indication, eagles seem suddenly pissed about drones in the sky.
This drone is minding it’s own business, having a calm and leisurely flight over Australia, when suddenly out of nowhere, a huge wedge-tailed eagle kicks the crap out of it.
Some dads just go above and beyond the call of duty when it comes to being awesome. The father behind this idea is one of a kind. Look at the cool corrective helmets he made for his kid.
Redditor mikesweeney recently posted this set of pictures on imgur, showing off these helmets that his friend designed for his own kid.
Get ready for the coolest Boba Fett action figure ever. This Ronin Samurai bounty hunter is the latest figure to join the Bandai Star Wars Tamashii Nations Movie Realization figure line.

During August in Japan, Obon is celebrated. The idea is that the spirits of people’s ancestors return to this world. In order to welcome the spirits, people make little displays out of eggplants and cucumbers. So why not get geeky about it and make some Mad Max vehicles?

Growing up I didn’t read comic books, but I watched the heck out of superhero cartoons on Saturday mornings. All I knew of Stan Lee was that he was the man who introduced the Spider-Man episode that I was about to watch.

Like its competitors, Mycroft is operated using voice commands.
Fans of the Harry Potter films will recognize this prop straight away. It’s a replica of the Golden Egg from the Triwizard Tournament. This replica doesn’t open or move, but it is shiny and has etchings of a mythical city on it.
The egg was described in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and reminds me more of an eggplant or a gourd than an egg.
This Green Lantern-inspired ring is the latest invention of laser-obsessed prop maker Patrick Priebe. It shoots a laser beam. It burns stuff. He won’t sell it to us. Dammit.
As usual, to keep idiots from blinding themselves Patrick is staying mum on how he made the ring.
Carlos Gomez Andonaegui owns a health spa in Mexico City, which doesn’t have a nearby water source. As a result, their water bill would sometimes be ridiculous. Five years ago Carlos thought of a way to reduce his business’ water usage.
The Wampa was one of the meanest of all the monsters in the original Star Wars trilogy. If you somehow don’t know what a Wampa is, it was the snow beast with horns and fangs that hung Luke from the roof of its snow cave.
Back to the Future introduced us to Doc and Marty back in the ’80s and spawned a memorable three-flick franchise that was rather extraordinary for its time.
What you see here are some vinyl collectables of Marty and Doc that don’t look much like the characters from the movies.
Last June we checked out Touchjet’s Pond, an Android projector that turned walls into touchscreens. It’s a good device for its price, but it wasn’t without sacrifices, particularly the quality of its display. Touchjet’s new Wave eliminates that problem, because it’s counting on your display.
The Wave is an Android device on a stick, except instead of hiding it at the back of your HDTV or monitor you perch it on top of your display.
