Building a Tiny Commodore PET

Building a Tiny Commodore PET
The Commodore PET 2001 was one of the very first personal computers I remember ever seeing. The green-screened 8-bit system wasn’t very powerful, but I always loved its iconic all-in-one design. I always wanted to own one if just to put it on display, but I don’t really have the space to spare.

This Drone Would Use Sonic Waves to Put Out Fires

Generally speaking, drones have either vertical takeoff capabilities or they need a runway. However, a South African startup has a better way. Their solution is to add some legs to their drone. The Passerine Sparrow Jumper has fixed wings and legs and feet for takeoff and landing.

Hyundai Shows off Walking Car Concept for Extreme Terrain
Innovation and CES used to go hand in hand, but in recent years, most of the tech on display is evolutionary, rather than revolutionary. Kudos to Hyundai and its CRADLE division for showing up at the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show with a truly innovative and unusual concept that’s well outside of the boundaries of conventional thinking.

Worried about the robot apocalypse? We all are. Here’s something different. Rather than trying to kill you or take your job, this new Japanese robot just roams around your house and asks you for hugs. That’s a refreshing change.

This Finned Robot Can Maneuver Over Land and Through Water
Scientists often use nature as a guide when creating new robots, making machines that mimic the behavior and movements of animals. But if you are copying a fish, that won’t do any good on land. Just like a robot based on a lizard won’t do you any good in the water.

This Drone Can Change Its Shape and Size

This Drone Can Change Its Shape and Size
Drones are a great search and rescue tool, but they would be even more impressive if they could change their size to fly through small holes. Well, the University of Zurich’s Robotics and Perception Group is showing off a shape-shifting drone that can do just that. The Morphing Quadrotor Drone is a foldable micro aerial vehicle (MAV) with vision-based navigation that allows it to fly on its own without the help of a human.

Bose is showing off a new line of sunglasses with tiny speakers embedded in the arms. The idea is that people don’t have to wear earbuds or over-the-ear headphones to listen to their music or make a loud phone call.

Voice & Motion Activated Stickers Are Perfect for Office Pranksters
Too many of today’s pranks are cruel or downright mean. I prefer old school pranks, which are a bit more lighthearted, and not likely to end with you or your victim getting a punch in the face or a kick in the groin.

This Colorful LED Rounded-key Keyboard Looks Sweet
I’ve seen keyboards with colorful LED backlighting, and keyboards with cool retro-style round keys.

This colorful and distinctive keyboard from Ajazz features bright LED backlighting, which provides a brilliant backdrop to its rounded keys.

Gavin Belson Signature Edition Box 3 Gets Real

Gavin Belson Signature Edition Box 3 Gets Real
The HBO series Silicon Valley is one of my favorite comedies on TV. It’s a hilarious take on the software and hardware industries, and the crazy stuff that happens in pursuit of funding and customers. Among the show’s colorful characters is Gavin Belson, the egotistical CEO of Hooli – a corporate buffoon who epitomizes the Peter Principle.

Condom Flash Drive Protects Your Data

Condom Flash Drive Protects Your Data
Flash drives are a dime a dozen these days. In fact, I get so many of them handed to me at media events, that I could probably build a 10 terabyte array out of the ones I have stashed in my desk drawers.

The guys at Edifier are know for making some really great audio gear, so when I was given the opportunity to go ears-on with their latest reference speakers, I was pretty excited.

SpyFinder Pro Review: Cameras Can Run But they Can’t Hide
These days, video cameras are so small that they can be hidden inside just about anything, from a soda can, to a wall clocks, to the spine of a book. Seriously, there are tons of devices on the market which let you hide a camera where it’s unlikely to be detected.
