Nintendo Switch Shown in Menu Leak Video Was Apparently Stolen
Last week we talked a bit about the video that leaked showing some of the menus and UI of the Nintendo Switch console. That leak was by a dude called “hiphoptherobot,” who said of how he got his hands on the console, “It isn’t like I grabbed it off the back of a truck or anything, I just happened to get lucky because unnamed store decided to ship early for whatever reason.”

Dungeons and Dragons fans are going to love this conceptual 3,000-piece Dungeon Master set created by LEGO Ideas user Ymarilego. These would be an awesome role-playing aid, and I’m not the only one who thinks so.

This Fire-Spraying Drone Is Not a Weapon
Power lines tend to collect trash when the wind blows. Plastic bags and other assorted trash stuck in the lines can be dangerous. Apparently, in Xiangyang, China, they now send drones up to sort out the mess… with fire!

Who Doesn’t Want Five Pounds of Sour Patch Kids?!

Who Doesn’t Want Five Pounds of Sour Patch Kids?!
I mentioned earlier this week that you could buy five pounds of Haribo Gummy Bears for about $10 on Amazon. Clearly lots of you are as big a fan of gummy bears as I. You know what i like more than gummy bears?

Monopoly Ditches the Boring Thimble

Monopoly Ditches the Boring Thimble
Growing up, my grandmother was big into sewing. Typically she’d sit on the couch making some sort of clothing or needlepoint project, and she would always be wearing a thimble to keep from stabbing herself. That’s the only reason I even know what a thimble is.

What the Nintendo Switch OS Looks Like
It will be another couple of weeks before the Nintendo Switch officially starts shipping, but it looks like at least one lucky gamer already got the console/handheld hybrid in hand. Could be a shipping mistake or a hoax, so take it with a grain of salt.

Documentary Shows Real Sword Combat Was Nothing Like Video Games or Movies

Documentary Shows Real Sword Combat Was Nothing Like Video Games or Movies
I like sword fights as much as the next guy. I mean, maybe I like them more. I’m not into renaissance fairs or LARPing, but I did take fencing way back in the day. I also rather like movies and video games with sword fights because they look cool.

Inmate Harley Quinn Action Figure Wants to Play

Inmate Harley Quinn Action Figure Wants to Play
I’d say the best thing about the stinker Suicide Squad was Harley Quinn. She was eye candy enough to make up for the bad acting and terrible storyline… almost. In the early scenes of the flick, Harley was stuck in a jail cell and just wanted someone to play with her. 

McDonald’s Builds a Better Straw

McDonald’s Builds a Better Straw
Tech innovations from McDonald’s? Yeah, it happens occasionally. They have decided that the drinking straw needed a redesign, so a team of robotic and aerospace engineers did just that as part of a marketing push for the new Chocolate Shamrock Shake.

Surf’s Up on the LEGO Rainbow Wave Machine
Look at that rainbow wave go. Taste the rainbow. I mean taste the LEGO. I mean, it’s just so wavy and pretty. Berthil van Beek makes many cool LEGO machines, but his latest machine is very very soothing and hypnotic.
