One of my favorite characters in the entire Star Wars saga has to be Admiral Ackbar. Not only does he have an awesome alliterated name, he sounds like Doc Brown from Back to the Future, and looks like a giant bipedal fish.
Household chores suck. If you ask me, the worst chore is scrubbing toilets. We all dread it. If only there were a robot that would do the job for us. Well, there is. A team of researchers from the University of Koblenz-Landau have created a robot that specializes in the dirty job.
This toilet-scrubbing bot can detect people, objects, and the toilet seat, and even has a microphone for speech recognition, as well as a mobile base for moving around.
Do or do not buy this collectible. There is no try. Your holidays are just not complete until you decorate with some cool Star Wars merch, like this 7″ tall Jedi Master Yoda Musical Glitter Globe.
This fancy-schmancy snow, I mean glitter globe is available from The Bradford Exchange for $99.99.
When you have small kids it’s harder to get around, which is why strollers were invented. And when you have small kids and you are a geek… you need an appropriately geeky stroller. Fantasy Strollers is a stroller rental company based in Orlando, Florida.
It might not be the flying mech that games like MechWarrior and Titanfall have tempted us with over the years, but a team of engineers in Japan have gotten pretty far with the construction of a massive robot that’s still quite intimidating.
Roboticist Hajime and his team have been been working since 2010 to construct this 13-foot-tall, 5 ton robot which balances on two legs, and is controlled by a human sitting inside its belly.
Back in the day, all the game consoles used cartridges. We had to blow on those things regularly, or dust got in the connectors and things didn’t work correctly. Dutch tech site Techtastic is reporting on a supposed Sony patent application that hints the next console could ditch the discs used for games today and return to the cartridge format.
Filed in late 2017, the patent application’s illustrations appear to show a cartridge that combines elements of flash drives with old-school cartridges.
Do you like to play Jenga? How about spicy tuna and wasabi? Well, have I got something for you! Sushi Stacker is a fun new tabletop stacking game that comes with planks that look like sushi instead of blocks of wood.
While you can play the game just like Jenga, the set comes with ideas for nine different games, including some that include picking up the pieces with chopsticks, playing Shogi, using them as dominoes, and some sort of Russian roulette game that I don’t quite understand.
If you have a muggle in your life that is a big Harry Potter fan, here’s the perfect wrapping paper for your Christmas gifts. You’ll pay 15 bucks for two rolls of the stuff though – not exactly cheap when Walmart has five rolls for less than that price.
What Walmart doesn’t have are rolls of paper with the Hogwarts crest or Platform 9 3/4 Hogwarts Express pattern.
I’ve always been against using dice towers. I just never saw the point since I am perfectly capable of rolling the dice myself. But having said that, occasionally you roll really horribly and embarrass yourself. You have only yourself to blame.
It’s a common problem: guys having trouble unhooking their ladies’ bra. Well, hopefully, this is soon going to be a thing of the past thanks to a patent recently granted to Michael M. Ahmadshahi Ph.D., Esq.
I remember one Christmas all my brother wanted was a Teddy Ruxpin. I hated those things, they were super creepy bears with mechanical animatronic eyes that blinked. I was pretty sure it would eat my soul during the night.
If you want to dress like the crew of the USS Enterprise, then make it so (or is it “make it sew?”) These officially-licensed Starfleet 2364 heavy denim jackets are available from Volante Design’s Superhuman Streetwear collection.
Nothing beats the smell of meat wafting up from under the Christmas tree. I’m just guessing that’s true, based on this gift wrap. I have no first-hand knowledge. I’ve never actually had meat under the tree.
