Check out the aptly named BooBuddy. This talking teddy bear is supposed to alert you to paranormal activity. But here’s my question: How do I know if he is alerting me to paranormal activity or is a part of paranormal activity?
Digital display technology has pretty much replaced the need for those old mechanical signboards they used to have at airports and train stations back in the day. But there was something about the wonderful sounds they made as the letters and numbers flipped over that was tremendously satisfying.
Remember when all that Colonel Sanders did was make chicken? Those were simpler days. These days KFC actually sells the occasional crazy product as well in addition to its fried birds. The latest crazy product is the KFO drone.
Nissan is apparently taking a pause from building cars so that they can give the world its first self-parking slippers. The company has taken a small chunk of its automated vehicle smarts and applied it to a traditional Japanese hotel experience.
Elon Musk continues to make the world a better place. The latest way that he’s doing this? Flamethrowers. After weeks of teases, Elon Musk has confirmed that his tunnel-drilling company The Boring Company is selling a flamethrower for the likes of you and me.
There are 20,000 of these weapons for sale.
I always wondered what it might be like if Doctor Who took place in a steampunk alternative universe. I think it would be pretty cool to have a TARDIS filled with gears and giant steam engines, and Cybermen and Daleks made from copper and brass.
Second Self Beer Company has introduced a new IPA ale inspired by The Legend of Zelda. It goes by the name of Triforce IPA. Right now it is available at the brewery’s taproom in Atlanta, and other select stores and bars in the area, plus Alabama.
Rollercoaster Tycoon has some serious fans. The question is, do Nintendo Switch owners want a version of the game badly enough to claim a direct stake in the game’s success? Atari seems to think so. The company’s Game Partners division has launched a crowd investment campaign to raise money for a Switch version of the theme park construction game.
For once you could actually make money by backing a game’s release.
Much to the delight of fans, LEGO has been selling some nice big sets for a while now, so that nerds with disposable income can build some epic models. That said, I hold out the tiniest bit of hope that LEGO will turn Vladimir van Hoek’s full-size working Lord of the Rings pinball machine into a massive set we can buy.
I’m pretty good from the free throw line. Occasionally, I may even get nothing but net from full court, if I get lucky. But I’m not this good. Watch the guys from How Ridiculous take what should be an impossible 660-foot basketball shot, and make it look easy.
The only way to make a shot like this is to take advantage of a tall location like the towering Maletsunyane Falls in Lesotho, Africa.
Your smartphone’s battery running out is very frustrating. We can never have enough power. We’re always topping off and charging up. It’s an endless cycle. Our smartphones are always on the cusp of dying. Well, if you want to chat with other people about your smartphone’s battery life, the Die With Me smartphone app will cost you a $1 and it only works when your battery life is less than 5%.
Once you have met that requirement, you can open the app and enter a chatroom with other strangers whose phones are also about to die.
Humans buy little outfits for their dogs and cats. They even buy outfits for pets like lizards and chickens. Some people buy outfits for their dolls so they can change them and dress them and do God knows what.
Nike’s PG2 shoe was created in collaboration with Sony and is obviously inspired by the PlayStation. It is basketball player Paul George’s new signature shoe. George plays for the NBA’s Oklahoma City Thunder and is also an avid gamer.
With the advent of HD and 4K streaming video, you may think that physical disks are obsolete. But frankly, most of the 1080p Blu-ray discs I’ve played on my home theater system look better than even 4K streamed content out there because of the compression streaming services apply to reduce bandwidth usage.
