I always thought the point of a drone was so it could fly around and do its work without having to touch the ground. But engineers from Caltech’s Center for Autonomous Systems & Technologies (CAST) have been working on an unusual drone which actually has legs.
The LEONARDO (LEg ON Aerial Robotic DrOne) uses its upper body thrust to stand upright, while a pair of jointed limbs at its bottom help it to walk along flat surfaces.
Why did Batman sit on his watch? He wanted to be on time. (Ba-dum-bum.) Like most of the Joker’s jokes, there’s nothing funny about the seriously intricate Swiss-made timepieces from RJ: two DC Comics watches featuring Batman foes The Joker and Two-Face.
These days, lots of people are replacing their bedside clocks with smartphones or other mobile gadgets which keep time. But there’s something about being able to just open an eyeball in the middle of the night and glance at the time that makes me still prefer a standalone clock.

If you’ve never seen The Creature from the Black Lagoon, you owe it to yourself to check out this classic monster movie. I like to think of the fish creature in Jack Arnold’s 1954 popcorn flick as the progenitor for the amphibian man in Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water.
Nearly everyone has something in common with Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: a passion for pizza. Why not express that thin-crust love with “the World’s Most Awesome Pizza Machine,” a simple non-stick appliance to cook frozen or fresh pizzas and quesadillas.

Robots usually have either legs or wheels to move them around. But this unusual robot has both. Its builders say the combination provides it with greater versatility than other quadruped robots, and from the looks of the video footage engineer Marko Bjelonic shared, I’d have to agree.
