Simone Giertz is at it again, not that she ever really stops making crappy robots that do crappy things. That’s what we like about her. This time she wanted to be part of YouTube’s 100-layer club, so she made a basic robot to automatically apply lipstick onto her face.
Disney’s research branch just revealed a crazy robot that can hop on a single leg. It doesn’t need a tether either, and has an on-board power source and controller. Now they just need to scale it up and give us a cool pogo-stick robot for personal transport.
Skydivers are pretty fearless. I mean, what is left to be scared of after falling toward the Earth from insane heights. So naturally, skydivers are looking for new cool stuff to do up there. Like swing on a giant swing suspended between two hot air balloons.

They have this really cool go kart race track near my house, and I think it would be the perfect thing to buy this lounger and then go racing there. You could also use this Yoshi Lounger as a super simple Halloween costume.
Do you dream of being an Imperial pencil pusher? That’s how Grand Moff Tarkin got started. This TIE Fighter desk is part of Rooms to Go’s Star Wars line of furniture and it looks just like the starfighters of the Galactic Empire.
Many photographers carry their gear in a camera bag, and often bring along a reflector to help better illuminate their subjects. Now they can carry just one item that serves both purposes. Betabrand’s Flash Bag makes things easier.
Forget riding your bike and having your hair fly in the wind. You are going to look much cooler wearing this LEGO minifig hair helmet. It was created by European creative agency DDB to get kids “excited about bicycle safety.”
