KFC Teams up with Crocs to Make the Weirdest Shoes Ever

KFC Teams up with Crocs to Make the Weirdest Shoes Ever
KFC’s marketing folks have some really strange ideas. Over the years, they’ve made chicken-scented fireplace logs, gravy-scented candles, and a Colonel Sanders bearskin rug. They’re either insane or creative geniuses, because they’ve got me talking about their brand yet again.

Robotic LEGO Car-Building Factory Puts Minifigs out of Work
Imagine a LEGO car factory where, like the real world, the workers have been replaced by robots. Did this make LEGO cars cheaper for the people of LEGOLand? Probably so. The factory is faster than ever with no minifigs working the line, making mistakes and getting the occasional limb chopped off.

Star Wars-Inspired USB Arcade Controller Hits Kickstarter
I always loved playing Atari’s vector-based arcade games back in the 1980s. Games like Tempest, BattleZone, and Quantum were some of my favorites. And then there was Star Wars.

Life-size Baby Yoda Figure Is Ready to Play with Your Ship
There’s little question that Baby Yoda (aka “The Child”) is the most adorable character in the history of the entire Star Wars universe. This little dude walked on the scene, took one look at all of the ewoks, porgs, and roller-droids, and said “hold my beer.”

Atari to Open Video Game Themed Hotels
