Growing up, my brother was a nervous sort and you could freak him out easily with just about any toy that moved on its own. I’m pretty sure it had to do with the flick Child’s Play that we stayed up and watched late one night or maybe Maximum Overdrive, where everything wanted to kill you.
Caleb Kraft is always making cool stuff. The man is a modern day DaVinci. His latest project turns Virtual Reality into Delicious Reality. Google Cardboard? No, this edible VR headset does not taste like cardboard.
Making Google Cardboard into an edible piece of gear is pretty simple.
As if the world didn’t have enough problems, Russia is apparently creating a scary humanoid robotic soldier, affectionately being called “Ivan the Terminator.” Thank God they didn’t call it the T-800. The idea of the robot is to eventually replace humans on the battlefield.
Are you so filthy rich that you can’t stand driving in a car like the rest of the commoners around you? That’s understandable. Let the peasants suffer through traffic jams and pollution while you soar to your destination in nothing but blue skies, safe within the cockpit of the Cobalt Co50 Valkyrie personal aircraft.
Segway has a new personal transport vehicle that Paul Blart wouldn’t be able to use. The vehicle is called the Ninebot by Segway miniPro and it has a maximum weight capacity of 185 pounds. If you meet that weight capacity, it will haul you about 14 miles per charge at a max speed of 10 mph.
I’ve seen Zootopia, and I thought it was pretty meh. My kids loved it though, and a dude named Zhao spent several days building a life-size LEGO statue of Nick Wilde from the movie. I don’t know how many bricks this statue took to make, but it was lots of them.
To celebrate NASA’s many discoveries, the USPS has just debuted some new stamps with images from outer space. Space fans are going to love sticking some of these on postcards or just keeping them as collectibles, since most of us don’t send snail mail these days.
I am a big fan of the Half-Life franchise and like most fans, I am still pissed that we haven’t seen a new Half-Life game in years. I have lots of memories of playing that game and smashing stuff with my crowbar.
This is music school done right. How do you do music school right? Well, the answer is simple. Star Wars, nothing but Star Wars. You have to check out these videos of children from Quebec’s Ecole de l’Harmonie (School of Harmony) and École secondaire de La Seigneurie playing a bunch of Star Wars music on their violins… with lightsaber bows no less.
Fett2-D2 (or is it R2-Fett2?) is the perfect droid/bounty hunter mashup. He can hold Death Star plans, serve drinks, or hunt down smugglers for bounties. He already had jets. Now he has another. This droid would be the ultimate bad guy.
The Super Mario Bros. Collector’s Edition of Monopoly takes the Mushroom Kingdom and turns it into a giant real estate free for all. You want to stick it to Bowser? Evict him from Park Place and get your Princess back.
People have gone nuts over Overwatch, and with good reason. Any time a game proves to be this popular, you can count on some epic cosplay showing up with people dressed up like the characters. Sometimes the cosplay isn’t that great, but every now and again you get a pro cosplayer, and it’s hard to tell if you are looking at a real person or a screenshot from the game.
