Popular toys-to-life games such as Skylanders and the Amiibo platform mainly use the physical figures as save files or keys, and most of the interaction is present in the video game half. But Sensible Object used a classic party game genre to turn the tables.
Softbank is about to open a smartphone store in Japan that’s fully staffed with its Pepper robots. These humanoid robots will take care of customers and assist them just like their human equivalents.
The Pepper robots will be able to sign up contracts and create data plans.
When I was in college, I watched a bunch of different surgeries being performed in the operating room. The thing that sticks out in my mind is just how long doctors have to spend standing in one single location, without moving.
It’s no secret that Japan has some very weird stuff. Much of that weird stuff comes out of vending machines. What you see here are tiny sleeping bags that can be found in gachapon toy capsule machines in Japan.
Goodsmile continues its run of unorthodox Figma action figures with its latest releases. They’re figures of Akira Yuki and Sarah Bryant in their hilariously awful polygonal bodies from the original Virtua Fighter.
They look ugly now, but – eh, let’s face it.
Wrenches can be found in every toolbox and every garage everywhere. If you don’t have one, you are doing it wrong. They are a must have tool. Now some old open-end wrenches have been repurposed, and are useful in a whole other way.
Like most modern controllers, Valve’s Steam Controller has actuators that generate haptic feedback. But YouTuber pilatomic discovered that you can make its motors sing.
In his Steam Community post, pilatomic says he found out how to gain full control of the actuators while looking at how the controller communicated with Steam.
Cakes are so much cooler now than when I was a kid. Take, for instance, this cake that doesn’t just depict our favorite video game, but actually plays out the first level.
This video is from filmmaker Aron Mani and pastry chef Jami Behrends.
LEGO fans – and LEGO itself – love to create dioramas of Batman’s headquarters. But Flickr user Dayton aka Forgotten Days turned his attention to the villainous hive that is the Arkham Asylum.
Dayton says he’s wanted to build the infamous hospital for years.
Last year, we saw an angle-grinder chucking compact discs at high speed. La Fabrique DIY came up with a similar but less life-threatening contraption by repurposing a drill to launch frisbees.
The crude but effective launcher uses the drill to turn a bicycle wheel, which in turn flings the frisbees with the help of a wooden feeder.
As far as I’m concerned, this side of a few breakfast items, the only thing at McDonald’s that isn’t gross and crappy tasting are the fries. I’d go so far as to say that McDonald’s has the best fries anywhere.
The robot-shaped MB&F Sherman clock is adorable and bound to make you smile. Apparently it was inspired by the M4 Sherman tank. See those working Caterpillar tracks?
The clock face is simple with a traditional two-hand face – nothing overly complicated here.
Bitplay’s BANG! lamp adds a cool twist to remote control, but in my opinion its gimmick is not worth $400 (USD). If you have the tools, you might be better off copying Instructables member Austin aka austiwawa.
If you are ever stuck in a wheelchair, don’t let that stop you from doing fun things. Take Iraq War veteran Justin Anderson, who has an awesome off-road wheelchair. Recently, he attached a snowplow to his modified chair, and used it to help his neighbors clear their snow.
