Kylo Ren’s Lightsaber Hilt: Get a Grip

Kylo Ren’s Lightsaber Hilt: Get a Grip
Kylo Ren’s unusual lightsaber is so popular, we saw fan-made replicas of the weapon more than a year before Star Wars: The Force Awakens came out. Now that the movie has been released and more reference materials have surfaced we’ll see more accurate third-party replicas, such as this hilt from Etsy store Steam Sailor.

Custom PC Handles 7 Virtual Gaming Systems at Once: Hydra of Linus

Custom PC Handles 7 Virtual Gaming Systems at Once: Hydra of Linus
Last October, gadget reviewer and PC enthusiast LinusTechTips made a single PC that was powerful enough to run two high-end virtual gaming machines at the same time. Unsatisfied – or perhaps too satisfied – with the result, he then decided to put together a gaming rig that can handle seven high-end virtual machines simultaneously.

Find the Panda Amongst This Stormtrooper Mob

Find the Panda Amongst This Stormtrooper Mob
Somehow, I’ve missed what apparently is a fad of having to find a Panda hidden amongst lots of other black and white characters. This time out, the panda is hidden amongst some geeky science fiction characters in the form of a slew of Stormtroopers of different types.

Singapore Creates Lifelike Receptionist Android

Singapore Creates Lifelike Receptionist Android
It’s getting harder and harder to pick an android out of the crowd. Look at the image here. That’s a pretty lifelike android. It’s name is Nadine and it is the creation of Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, which specializes in robotics and their social interactions with humans.

Star Wars Landspeeder Cake: Hovercake

Star Wars Landspeeder Cake: Hovercake
Don’t forget to eat your cake, Luke. But I was going to Tosche Station to pick up some power converters! Wait, did you say cake?!? I’m on it, Aunt Beru. This cool cake was made by Gilles Leblanc of Les Gateaux de Gilles in Quebec and it looks just like Luke’s X-34 Landspeeder.

Trekkies will want to hop down to their local post office and pick up some of these cool Star Trek stamps that are set to launch this year. The stamps are to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the premiere of Star Trek in 1966.

Death Mtn Legend of Zelda The Princess T-shirt: Wearu Wearu
Metal-meets-gaming clothing brand Death Mtn DEATH MTN DE▲TH M✝N has a new t-shirt for longtime Legend of Zelda fans and other gamers in the know. The Princess t-shirt features a shot of Zelda from the unsurprisingly bizarre Japanese commercial for The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.

The HyQ2Max Robot Can Stand Itself up in Rugged Terrain
Get ready for another milestone in robotics, meaning scientists have achieved yet another feat that will help robots hunt us down and dominate the planet. In this case, The Dynamic Systems Lab at the Italian Institute of Technology has created the HyQ2Max, a powerful robot that can lift itself up onto its four legs, even if it falls.

Zombait Robotic Fishing Lure Makes Dead Bait Move: The Swimming Dead

Zombait Robotic Fishing Lure Makes Dead Bait Move: The Swimming Dead
Live bait makes it easier to catch bigger predatory fish, but they’re more expensive than dead bait and obviously need to be kept alive until they’re used. That’s why veteran commercial fisherman Rink Varian thought of Zombait, a device that makes dead fish move underwater.

Death Star Salt & Pepper Shakers: They’re No Half Moons

Death Star Salt & Pepper Shakers: They’re No Half Moons
Bombard food with flavor with Underground Toys’ upcoming Death Star salt and pepper shakers. The shakers are made of ceramic and are about 4″ in diameter. I guess a Starkiller Base shaker would be too big.

Bandai Dragon Ball Figme Wish to Evade a Lawsuit

Bandai Dragon Ball Figme Wish to Evade a Lawsuit
I’m sure there are small companies and individuals that make bootleg Dragon Ball minifigures. The upcoming Figme, on the other hand, are straight outta Bandai. They’re also about the same height as minifigs – around 1.5″ – but I don’t know if their hands and feet are compatible with LEGO pieces.

Derby the Dog Gets New 3D Printed Legs
Sadly, Derby the dog was born with a deformity that left him without the ability to walk without some sort of assistance. Derby had an initial set of 3D printed prosthetics that allowed him to get around, but weren’t perfect.

Gesture Control App for Wearable Devices: Watch This!
A few years ago, we saw that Microsoft’s Kinect sensor could be used to control a quadcopter with hand gestures. In the future, we might be able to do that and more using wearable devices, thanks to Taiwanese company PVD+.

Rail Gun Lets You Use Airsoft Guns to Play FPS Games: Gunception

Rail Gun Lets You Use Airsoft Guns to Play FPS Games: Gunception
For whatever reason, there are barely any realistic gun controllers for first-person shooters. A Korean company called Uzbrainnet may have come up with a great alternative with the Rail Gun, a wireless controller designed to be attached to airsoft guns.

LG Betting Big on OLED TV for 2016

LG Betting Big on OLED TV for 2016
CES 2016 starts this coming week, and it looks like LG will be doubling down on OLED as the next big display technology for the living room. In preparation for the upcoming electronics show, I like to do some preliminary research, and came across numerous LG OLED display models which recently were granted Wi-Fi certification.

The Boncho Is a Poncho for Bike Riders

The Boncho Is a Poncho for Bike Riders
The Boncho is a poncho accessory that covers riders to protect them from the rain. It also neatly folds up for easy and compact storage. It’s not much of a fashion statement, but it will keep you dry.
