When Microsoft decides to do a custom car, you can bet it’s going to be packed with all sorts of technology. Microsoft teamed up with custom car modders West Coast Customs on the design and dubbed the car Project Detroit.
If you can’t make it through a single day without downing several cups of coffee, then you probably have ten bucks set aside for your coffee allowance every day. That adds up to a lot over time, so you’d probably better off making a one-time investment in something like the Handpresso Auto machine.
Remember Sphero, the robotic ball of fun? Well, apparently he’s growing up really fast and has his license now, along with a new set of wheels. It was created with parts like a discarded toy car, trackball, an Arduino kit, and an H-Bridge.
Have you ever wondered how a gecko is able to climb walls with ease, and hold itself on ceilings? Well, this post will not answer your questions, because my good friend still has $50 on the suction cup theory and I don’t want to burst his bubble.

I don’t know if you remember the toys or the cartoon from back in the 1980s called MASK. That was one my favorite shows and had a bunch of the toys that were cars, trucks, and motorcycles that turned into other things.
