DJI RoboMaster S1 Robot Is a Programmable Wonder

DJI RoboMaster S1 Robot Is a Programmable Wonder
Chinese tech company DJI is best known for its excellent photography drones. Now they’ve taken their expertise in remote-controlled vehicle design, and applied it to an earth-bound vehicle, dubbed the RoboMaster S1. This $499 robot isn’t just for play though, it’s designed to teach kids (and kids at heart) about…

We Want to Play this LEGO Donkey Kong Arcade Machine
LEGO makes some really cool kits, but as far as I know, they’ve never released a set that looked like an arcade machine. But after seeing this awesome build by brick-building expert Frostbricks, I really hope they consider it. What you’re looking at here is a LEGO version of the…

Boston Dynamics’ Spot Robot Plays Dead

Boston Dynamics’ Spot Robot Plays Dead
We’ve seen Boston Dynamics’ animal-inspired robots perform some impressive tasks over the years, from stacking boxes, to doing backflips, to performing sick dance moves, to pulling an airplane. But you can’t expect robot perfection 100% of the time, can you? During a recent on-stage demo of their soon-to-be-produced Spot Mini…

Was Beta Really Better than VHS?

Was Beta Really Better than VHS?
Back in the ’80s, I was a huge proponent of BetaMax videotapes, though it was less about the image quality for me and more about the audio quality Beta Hi-Fi, which offered up far better sound quality than other video formats at the time. But for years, it’s been thought…

LEGO Goes to The Upside Down with Awesome Stranger Things Model

LEGO Goes to The Upside Down with Awesome Stranger Things Model
LEGO is one of my favorite playthings, and Stranger Things is one of my favorite TV series, so when I found out the two were partnering up, I was pretty stoked. But LEGO has really outdone themselves with their first official Stranger Things set. The 2,287-piece set The Upside Down…

Star Wars and Marvel Meta Mugs: Arm Yourself with Caffeine

Star Wars and Marvel Meta Mugs: Arm Yourself with Caffeine
If you’re like me, you could always use another cup of coffee. If you’re going to constantly be reaching for a hot cup of joe, you should drink it out of a cool mug, I say. Firebox has some sweet mugs for fans of Marvel superheroes as well as Star…

2019 IFA Global Press Conference Previews Tech and Trends for IFA 2019 Berlin Show
Here in the states, the big electronic gadget exhibition is CES. But in Europe, its the Internationale Funkausstellung Berlin, aka IFA (pronounced “eee-fah”). Each September, the show kicks off in Berlin, Germany, showcasing a wide variety of technology in consumer electronics, personal care and health technology, home appliances, and much…

Sennheiser Ambeo Soundbar First Listen Review

Sennheiser Ambeo Soundbar First Listen Review
These days, everyone has a big flat-panel television somewhere in their house. While the internal speakers on TVs have improved quite a bit in recent years, the sound quality is never what I’d call “cinematic.” For true home theater sound, you need either a multispeaker surround sound setup, or one…

This Media Player Looks Like a Tiny SEGA Saturn

This Media Player Looks Like a Tiny SEGA Saturn
While the SEGA Dreamcast and Genesis were arguably their most memorable consoles, the 32-bit Saturn was quite fun to play too. I spent many a day flying through the skies on the back of a dragon in Panzer Dragoon II Zwei. Now, there’s a media player that looks just like…

Mannequin Head Sliced in Half Is the Stuff of Nightmares

Mannequin Head Sliced in Half Is the Stuff of Nightmares
A decapitated mannequin head is disturbing enough on its own, but things get even more creepy when the guys from the Waterjet Channel get their hands on a mannequin head, and subject it to their powerful 60,000 PSI waterjet cutter. This is some seriously warped stuff, as they first open…

Darth Vader / Stormtrooper Salt and Pepper Shakers Add a Dash of Evil to Any Meal

Darth Vader / Stormtrooper Salt and Pepper Shakers Add a Dash of Evil to Any Meal
Throughout the Star Wars saga, we’ve never seen the Imperial forces take a break out of their day to grab something to eat. But a stormtrooper has got to keep his strength up, so I’m sure they chow down when Darth Vader isn’t looking. To season their food, I’m certain…

Thor’s Hammer Tool Set: Mjolnir for Mechanics

Thor’s Hammer Tool Set: Mjolnir for Mechanics
Thor’s mighty hammer is pretty damned powerful in the right hands. But it can’t fix everything. What you need is something more versatile, like this special version that packs a complete tool kit inside. It may look like Mjolnir from the outside, but when you set it down and pop…

AT-AT Liquor Cabinet Perfect for Serving Up Your Johnnie (Imperial) Walker Black

AT-AT Liquor Cabinet Perfect for Serving Up Your Johnnie (Imperial) Walker Black
I’ve always wanted one of those fancy liquor cabinets in my house. I’m not talking about the type that look like an old globe either. I want a really cool one. Perhaps something really original, like one that looks like an AT-AT Imperial Walker. Oh, what’s that you say? Somebody…

Every Couch Could Use a Furry Sloth Pillow

Every Couch Could Use a Furry Sloth Pillow
Are you feeling lazy? Me too. As I write this, it’s 8:30 am on a Sunday, and I should either still be in bed, or chilling on the couch, and not clicking away at my keyboard. Alas, the Internet never sleeps, and therefore I don’t get to either. But when…

This Tauntaun Head Wall Trophy Will Dress up Any Space
So you’ve been freezing to death on the surface of Hoth, and spent the night sleeping inside of the smelly guts of your tauntaun pal to keep warm. Now that you’re done with your near-death experience, you’ve got to do something with that carcass, right? I’m not sure if tauntaun…
