Fallout 76 Gets Its First Post-Launch Update with Lots of Bug Fixes
Fallout 76 is here, but there’s a big divide among fans. Some like this new take on the franchise, while others feel disappointed, even betrayed. Many wanted a simple new Fallout game, not a new version that does something different.

Gigantic Stick Bug is 2-Feet of Nope
A group of Chinese scientists were on a field trip to the Guangxi Zhuang region of China in 2014 and discovered this gigantic bug. The beast is 62.4cm long, or a bit over two feet.

I’m pretty sure if it bites you, you will become Stick-man and your cheesy super power will be hiding in trees where enemies can’t see you.

Praying Mantis Gets 3D Glasses in Coolest Scientific Test Ever

Praying Mantis Gets 3D Glasses in Coolest Scientific Test Ever
I like to imagine that the scientists who come up with experiments sit around and think of the most awesome things they can do, even if they have little real world value. I bet there were back claps all around when one of them said, “Let’s put 3D glasses on a praying mantis!”

Wall of Bugs Has a Volkswagen Beetle

Wall of Bugs Has a Volkswagen Beetle
There are a bunch of museums in the US and around the world I would like to visit one day. The Smithsonian is at the top of my list. I didn’t even know that Cleveland had a Museum of Natural History, but it does, and someone working there clearly has a sense of humor. Hidden in plain sight among their wall of dead bugs impaled with pins is one thing that is not like the others.

Mattel’s Bug Racers Are Steered by Live Insects
Toys sure have come a long way. Get ready for tiny cars that are piloted by real living insects. No joke. Why would your kid want to control their toy themselves when they can enslave an insect? They could have released yet another smartphone-controlled RC toy, but no, Mattel’s Bug Racer doesn’t even let kids control their racer.

Tiny X2-VelociRoACH Robot Breaks Speed Record
Back in 2013, we talked about a tiny robot from UC Berkeley that a team had developed that was able to run around at 2.7 meters-per-second. That was pretty fast, but roughly two years later the team has completely revised the little robot, called the X2-VelociRoACH and it’s nearly twice as fast as its predecessor.

VelociRoACH Hits the Ground Running… and Raid Won’t Stop It

VelociRoACH Hits the Ground Running… and Raid Won’t Stop It
Remember that Tom Selleck sci-fi flick called Runaway? Despite being terribly cheesy, those insect-like robots in that movie always gave me the creeps. Never mind that it was none other than KISS’ Gene Simmons who was the mastermind behind the robobugs.

TARDIS VW Beetle: Fahrverwhügen
This TARDIS VW Beetle is all timey-whimey and bigger on the… outside. Which is pretty normal. I remember when the 3rd Doctor had a car that he used to drive around in and fight monsters with.
