May the 4th was a hot day in New York. It felt like Tatooine. Luckily, fans who didn’t want to walk around in the heat had the option to take a leisurely ride around Bryant Park in a LEGO version the Millennium Falcon.
Who feels like making breakfast when you’re still half asleep? Not me. That’s why I have to build a breakfast-making robot like this one. This breakfast-making machine is amazing. It will make you bacon and eggs using two custom-built LEGO robots.
One is a huge scaffold that delivers bacon and eggs to your frying pan and even cracks the eggs open.
Check out this cool Star Wars-inspired conference table. It was made using thousands of individually pushpins. You may not have that 28,800 pins handy, but luckily that wasn’t a problem for the employees at Viking, a UK-based office supply seller.
While they could have hired a robot to do the work, instead, the image was composed entirely by hand.
I’m just going to say it, I didn’t care for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. I feel like the franchise has lost the magic that made it such an integral part of my childhood. Still, it has some cute parts, not the part where Luke milks that creature’s teat and drinks from it, mind you.
I think we have all gotten dressed in a funk early on a Monday and not bothered to look out the window until we open the door to leave. Typically we don’t look outside because we’ve been busy wondering just how bad would it be to not have a job.
Here’s a critical hit to your sobriety. These Beer Dice from Artisan Dice are pretty much your typical tabletop gaming dice, except they contain compressed hops encased in crystal meth resin, and are also inlaid with brass numbers.
Sometimes people just say stupid things. They do it a lot, actually. What can you do, aside from sigh and facepalm? Captain Picard feels your pain. He’s had to cover his face and wince in embarassment on a more than a few occasions himself.
Living in Colorado, I can say unequivocally that mountain views are breathtaking. I can’t imagine what it would be like to be blind or visually impaired and unable to enjoy views like that. Ford wants to allow the visually impaired to “see” the view with their sense of touch.
The automaker has created a prototype window display that it calls “Feel the View” that is able to take pictures and turn them into high contrast monochrome images.
We need a better way to stir our coffee, people. You know why? because over 400 million plastic and wood coffee stirrers are thrown away every day. They go in landfills and also end up in that giant floating island made of trash, that sits between California and Hawaii.
Virtual reality headsets use your eyes and ears to make things seem real, but the future of VR is all about incorporating the other senses. Researchers at Stanford University have our hands and fingers covered. They have come up with a way for you to virtually feel virtual objects, with the help of a weird robot.
It’s called ShapeShift.
