Ewaybot Moro Humanoid Robot Assistant Can Grip Things: Moro, Grab Me a Beer.
In-home assistants like Amazon Echo and Google Home are big right now. They can be pretty handy, but they are also limited: They can tell you where to find a can of beer, maybe how to make beer even, but they can’t bring you one from the fridge.

This Life-size Mech Actually Works

This Life-size Mech Actually Works
For many years, I thought that the coolest video game ever made was Mechwarrior. I played that game so much it’s not even funny. I’m more than a little angry that no new Mechwarrior game has surfaced in a long time.

Gatebox Holographic Assistant Price, Release Date Announced

Gatebox Holographic Assistant Price, Release Date Announced
I have a feeling that the Gatebox is exactly how Krieger got started with that holographic Japanese girl that follows him around on Archer. We talked a bit about the Gatebox early this year when the oddity first surfaced.

Amazon Testing a Grocery Store with No Checkout

Amazon Testing a Grocery Store with No Checkout
It was rumored to be happening for quite a while now, and Amazon just officially announced its first ever brick and mortar grocery store. The big new idea is that there’s no checkout. All you have to do is just tap your phone on a detector when you walk in and then walk out with your food.

Death Star Would Cost All the Money to Run for One Day

Death Star Would Cost All the Money to Run for One Day
I never really put much thought into what it would cost to actually make and operate the things we see in sci-fi movies. Take the Death Star for instance. It never crossed my mind to think about how much it would cost to build.

DroneGun Knocks Drones out of the Sky
With drones becoming more and more popular and with most having the ability to send video back to the operator, police and military around the world need a way to stop nefarious users from using them to perform bad deeds. 

BALLU Robot is Part Balloon and Part Crane

BALLU Robot is Part Balloon and Part Crane
Normally, humanoid robots creep me out a bit, but Ballu doesn’t. I mean it’s hard to be scared of something that reminds me more than a little of those junky balloon toys with feet KFC used to give out in the ’80s.

Roveable Robots Crawl All Over Your Clothes

Roveable Robots Crawl All Over Your Clothes
Scientists at MIT and Stanford have created a new type of tiny robot called a “roveable”. Basically these compact critters will live on our clothes and travel all around as if they are living on a human planet.

Glow Lamp Isn’t a Jet Pack, But It Does Hover

Glow Lamp Isn’t a Jet Pack, But It Does Hover
Growing up, I was convinced that by the time I was “old” I wouldn’t have to walk anywhere. My jetpack would fly me wherever I wanted to go. I was also convinced that we would be living on the Moon and while my jetpack and lunar house have yet to happen, at least we are starting to get things that levitate.

WhammyPhone is a Bendable Music Playing Phone

WhammyPhone is a Bendable Music Playing Phone
Growing up I watched a lot of Looney Toons cartoons and I remember one where Bugs plays a wood saw to make some Hawaiian music. I imagine that the WhammyPhone is sort of the modern equivalent of that strange musical instrument.

BMW’s Future Motorcycle: No Helmet Required

BMW’s Future Motorcycle: No Helmet Required
BMW recently showed off a bunch of concept vehicles to for its 100th birthday, but this one is the coolest. The Motorrad Vision Next 100 concept motorcycle is so smart you wouldn’t need a helmet, or even a padded suit.

Scientists Feed Silkworms Graphene to Create Super Silk

Scientists Feed Silkworms Graphene to Create Super Silk
I’d bet at some point a scientist for Oscorp thought feeding a special spider something cool would be a great idea. Instead, we ended up with Spider-Man and a host of villains. I can’t help but think that a group of scientists at Tsinghua University in Beijing, China might have inadvertently created the origin story for a C-grade Marvel comic book.

Researchers Send Secure Passwords via the Human Body
A team of electrical engineers and computer scientists from the University of Washington have teamed up to create what they say is a much more secure way to transmit passwords. Currently, most passwords are sent via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi where they can be captured by hackers and possibly cracked.

NASA RASSOR 2.0 Rover Struts Its Stuff

NASA RASSOR 2.0 Rover Struts Its Stuff
NASA calls its RASSOR 2.0 rover “a blue collar robot.” That’s because it gets down and dirty and is tough as nails. It digs, it climbs, it flips over. It’s a real workhorse. It is an awesome design and it is fun to watch it in action.

Ghost Robotics Minitaur Quadruped Can Open Doors to Snatch your Soul

Ghost Robotics Minitaur Quadruped Can Open Doors to Snatch your Soul
Well folks, we are yet one step closer to creating a real life Hector robot that will come and rip off your head and wear it while chasing your girlfriend around the building. The Ghost Robotics‘ Minitaur robot reminds me of a cross between a really weird, really excited cat, and that BigDog robot.
