Training Ground for LEGO Clone Wars Troopers Rocks

Training Ground for LEGO Clone Wars Troopers Rocks
My son really likes the Star Wars Clone Wars cartoon on Cartoon Network. He still hasn’t quite wrapped his head around how the Clone Troopers are good now, and end up being bad later though. One of the episodes we watched recently had some of the clones training in a room against droids in order to pass a test so they could graduate.

Year-Round Sled is Perfect for Warm Weather

Year-Round Sled is Perfect for Warm Weather
I live in Texas where it’s not just hot in the summer, its hawt. The upside is that in the winter if we get below freezing more than a few weeks it’s a bad winter. That said, we rarely get snow so we don’t get to make snowmen or throw snowballs each year and sledding is unheard of around here.

Wearable LEGO Master Chief Helmet: Easy Headshot

Wearable LEGO Master Chief Helmet: Easy Headshot
This awesome Halo Master Chief helmet is made out of LEGO bricks. While it looks pretty awesome, I just wonder how long it will stay in one piece if it’s actually worn around. Ben Caulkins (aka Benny Brickster) created this helmet.

Mega Hurtz Tactical Robot Means Business

Mega Hurtz Tactical Robot Means Business
Most of the time when I think of robots, I think of tame little droids like R2-D2 and Asimo. But this robot-on-wheels means serious business. Created by Chris Rogers of Inspector Bots, the Mega Hurtz Tactical Robot is an seriously amped-up robotic vehicle, with enough torque to pull a 4700 pound Hummer H3.

Souped-Up Segway Hits Double Speed

Souped-Up Segway Hits Double Speed
For safety’s sake, a Segway tops out at 12.5 miles per hour. While that doesn’t sound that fast, if you’ve ever been on one of these self-balancing contraptions, you know that actually seems mighty fast when it’s just that tiny platform between you, the ground, and those oncoming cars.

Twitter Monkey: #Plush #Arduino #Monkey

Twitter Monkey: #Plush #Arduino #Monkey
Maker Pete Prodoehl recently came up with the Twitter Monkey. What does it do? It tweets, of course, right? Actually, that’s not how it works. Instead, Twitter Monkey alerts you in an annoying way when it ‘sees’ specific keywords come up in a Twitter stream by wildly gesticulating its arms.

Geeks Launch Paper Airplane From 90,000 Feet

Geeks Launch Paper Airplane From 90,000 Feet
I have flown my fair share of paper airplanes during my days. As high-tech as in ever went was putting a paper clip on them for extra weight though. Some geeks got together and built this spaceworthy paper airplane from paper and straws with a 3-foot wingspan.

Your Very Own Mini Giant Gundam

Your Very Own Mini Giant Gundam
If you’re lucky enough to live in Japan, you’ve had plenty of opportunity to check out the giant Gundam statue that’s been around for the last year or so. But for those of us here in the States and other places around the world, we’ve got no giant Gundam love.

Flyrad is the Love Child of Segway and a Unicycle

Flyrad is the Love Child of Segway and a Unicycle
It took me years to recognize that many asshats have no idea just how asshatty they really are. Take my cousin for instance; he once had a unicycle he wanted to show off on in front of some girls when we were about eight.

Wearable Tent is Both Cool and Stupid All at Once

Wearable Tent is Both Cool and Stupid All at Once
In Texas, the weather can change at a moment’s notice. We tend to not change plans because of poor weather until the last second because it can be flooding one minute and sunny the next. I have been caught in the rain before unprepared, and if you are a hiker, this new wearable tent has surfaced that might catch your attention.

Leapster Explorer Gets Cool Camera and Video Recorder
With the hoards of gadgets and hardware that comes through my house, it’s no surprise that my kids are gadget hounds and tend to ask for as many gadgets for Christmas as they do toys. My daughter really wants a digital camera, but she is not very easy on stuff.
