Segway Robot: Proto Autobot

Segway Robot: Proto Autobot
It’s no Optimus Prime or Hot Rod, but the Segway Robot does have a vehicle mode and a robot mode, and maker Ninebot hopes it will be useful whether you’re on or off the machine. The Segway Robot is a variant of Ninebot’s Mini Pro, which works much like the trendy self-balancing “hoverboard” transport devices.

LEGO Prism & Spectrum Concept: Newtonian Playset
In the late 17th century, Sir Isaac Newton used prisms to show that visible light is made up of seven different-colored bands, repurposing the Latin word “spectrum” to group those colors. In 1973, Storm Thorgerson and Hipgnosis appropriated the prism and the spectrum for Pink Floyd’s album The Dark Side of the Moon.

Fan-made LEGO BB-8: I Give It Four out of Five Lighters up
It took a really long time before R2-D2 got an accurate LEGO model. I wouldn’t be surprised if BB-8 gets fast tracked, but until then you might want to inspect this model made by Redditor hendrikdejager.

Blind Gamer Beats The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
YouTuber Terry Garrett aka Mega Tgarrett has achieved what I would have thought was impossible. He beat The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, even though he’s blind. It took him a very long time and he had the help of game saves, but still.

Kylo Ren’s Lightsaber Hilt: Get a Grip

Kylo Ren’s Lightsaber Hilt: Get a Grip
Kylo Ren’s unusual lightsaber is so popular, we saw fan-made replicas of the weapon more than a year before Star Wars: The Force Awakens came out. Now that the movie has been released and more reference materials have surfaced we’ll see more accurate third-party replicas, such as this hilt from Etsy store Steam Sailor.

Last October, gadget reviewer and PC enthusiast LinusTechTips made a single PC that was powerful enough to run two high-end virtual gaming machines at the same time.

Death Star Salt & Pepper Shakers: They’re No Half Moons
Bombard food with flavor with Underground Toys’ upcoming Death Star salt and pepper shakers. The shakers are made of ceramic and are about 4″ in diameter. I guess a Starkiller Base shaker would be too big.

Bandai Dragon Ball Figme Wish to Evade a Lawsuit

Bandai Dragon Ball Figme Wish to Evade a Lawsuit
I’m sure there are small companies and individuals that make bootleg Dragon Ball minifigures. The upcoming Figme, on the other hand, are straight outta Bandai. They’re also about the same height as minifigs – around 1.5″ – but I don’t know if their hands and feet are compatible with LEGO pieces.

Voice-guided navigation makes it a lot easier for drivers to follow directions for map applications. But a group of Electrical & Computer Engineering students from Cornell University have come up with a more intuitive solution. They created a hat-mounted navigation device that guides you by producing sound that appears to come from the direction of your destination.
