Growing up, I was seriously creeped out by the original Child’s Play. The franchise got pretty cheesy after that. Once Child’s Play hit the theaters, I never looked at my brother’s My Buddy doll the same way again.
Anyone who has kids knows that strollers are huge and bulky accessories that are generally a pain in the butt. They are big, heavy and hard to get into tight spaces. All of that changes with the gb Pockit Compact Stroller, which holds the Guinness Book of World Record’s title for most compact stroller.
In just two steps, this unique stroller folds up into a compact, feather-light, handbag shaped package.It
What do you get when you merge R2-D2 with Pixar’s anthropomorphic lamp mascot, Luxo, Jr? You get the most bare-bones version of R2-D2 that anyone has ever seen. And it’s a lamp!
R2 is looking truly anorexic.
When it comes to stuff around your house, fuse boxes are pretty boring. They aren’t supposed to look good. They’re just supposed to be functional. However, if you are turning your home into a replica of the Ghostbusters’ HQ, why not make your fuse box look like it is straight out of the movie?
This awesome concept is called the Ecto Containment Unit and is the work of Dave’s Geeky Ideas.
Have you ever wanted your own AT-ST? Well, a man by the name of Mr. Kernish has created his own full-size replica of the Empire’s All-Terrain Scout Transport.
The is an impressive build. It looks sort of like a treehouse, with a ladder leading up to the cockpit, so I assume someone can climb in.
There are many 3D printers that can mix filaments of different colors, as well as those that can print with two or three different types of filament at once. But Stratasys’ new J750 PolyJet 3D printer raises the bar in both aspects, able to print over 360,000 colors and up to six different materials at once.
The J750’s goal is simple: to put the “rapid” in rapid prototyping.
If you can believe it, I’ve never eaten a cannoli before. All I know about cannoli I learned watching The Godfather, which is to say leave the gun and take the sweets. From what I see here I am seriously missing out.
This is no normal cannoli though.
There are several applications that let you make digital pinball machines, but perhaps none of them are as easy and quirky as the Flippaper. Made by arists Jérémie Cortial and Roman Miletitch, this pinball machine makes you draw the playing field.
You draw the playing field on paper on top of Flippaper’s screen, which has a clip to hold the paper.
Very few things in video games scare me for even half a second, but the sight of a Deathclaw in Fallout 4 usually sends shivers down my spine. These things will really ruin an otherwise pleasant walk through the wasteland.
Some artists sculpt with their hands, some chisel stone, others paint with brushes. Uncle Rob paints on canvas by throwing cans of spray paint into spinning lawnmower blades. What could possibly go wrong?
Whether you call him an idiot Picasso or a dumb-ass Van Gogh, there is one thing you can’t deny.
Last year, Tested co-founder Will Smith left the successful geek website to test the viability of virtual reality as a media platform. Now we can see his vision come to fruition. Will’s new show The FOO Show is a virtual reality show for the Oculus Rift (and soon for the HTC Vive as well).
Will says they’re “using a suite of tools let us quickly and easily capture performances in VR using off-the-shelf hardware, like the HTC Vive and Oculus Touch (when it’s available).”
While much of today’s business takes place online, there are still many times when paper documents come in handy. Whether you need to hand out a business presentation, flyers, or mark up a contract, every business still needs to print.
One thing that really stinks about playing games like Settlers of Catan is that if you or your friend accidentally bumps the board, all of the roads and cities go flying everywhere. Robots don’t have that problem.
