Couldn’t you use a robotic butler? I know that I sure could. This goofy home-made Butlerbot was created for the 1st birthday of its creator’s son, Ethan. That all sounds like the setup for some sort of science fiction film that goes horribly wrong when the robot assumes the personality of Ethan and becomes convinced its creator is its “father.” Thankfully, that’s not what actually happens here – at least not yet.
Artist Stefan Le Dû recently completed this series of photos about the everyday life for a pair of stormtroopers from Star Wars who find themselves in strange and comical situations.
You can see the whole set here or visit Stefan’s Flickr album.
This awesome little device is a lightweight digital camera that can be attached to any RC device and capture photos or videos. Heck, with one of these, you could make your own homebrew surveillance drone.
The RC Plane Camera weighs about 27g, so it’s won’t bog down your RC plane.
I know that LEGO bricks can be used to make many things, but this is the first time that I’ve seen them being used for making fully-functional printer.
This LEGO printer was created by a guy named Squirrelfantasy.
I’m sure some of you have seen the full-sized, functioning Batpod replics that’s for sale on eBay. Awesome right? It’s just that us ordinary folks don’t exactly have a $100,000 (USD) to spare for the thing.
I have been playing racing games on my various game consoles since there were racing games to play. I remember my first racing game, Pole Position on the Atari 2600. I even had one of those pads like you used for Pong as the steering wheel.
I took guitar lessons as a kid until the instructor kicked me out because I refused to practice. I fully expected to play an electric guitar the first day without any effort. As close as I get to playing the guitar today is a game of Rock Band.
Believe it or not, Iron Man 2 won’t be in Japan’s theaters until next month. What injustice! A country that loves robots so much, and they haven’t seen it yet?! But the Stark-starved Japanese might be getting something that the rest of us won’t: Medicom’s Iron Man 2 Kubricks.

The photo was taken by PBase user bbzippo way back in 2004, and won 4th place in the PBase forum’s Illusion challenge. I think it’s been Photoshopped – there’s something weird going on in the edge of the crossbar, right on top of the right post.
The guys at Japan’s Seahope, known for many a cool digital watch – have partnered up with Takara Tomy to produce a new timepiece inspired by the Transformers.
While it’s not exactly clear from this early concept sketch, we’re hoping the chronolabel LED Transformer will transform from a watch to a stand-up clock.
At first when I saw this image, I wondered what it was. It looks like some kind of a glowing animal head of some sort, a cross between a dragon and something else. I was surprised to learn that this is Russell, the Electric Giraffe.
