Tesla Motors’ cars are some of the nerdiest vehicles you can get. But programmer su – tesla made her Model S even smarter by rooting the car’s on-board computer, allowing her to emulate the Linux distro Gentoo on it.
Milestone reminds us how far Street Fighter‘s art has come with these terribad 2″ busts. They’re 3D versions of the character portraits that appear in Street Fighter II after you’re defeated.
Seeing Ryu and the gang beat up makes the “Continue?”
April Fools’ Day is ThinkGeek’s Christmas. The company once again prepared several fake products for our amusement, with the best one being the Useless Light Switch. It’s like the useless machine, only it doesn’t just turn itself off, it takes down the light bulb with it.
USB pedals or foot switches are not expensive, but nothing beats free. Redditor shrodingers_Cat took out all but four of the keys on his spare keyboard and then taped DVD covers over each of the remaining keys.
This fun commercial for Dutch parcel company PostNL took advantage of 3D printing to deliver a trumpet that did not exist until after the box that it came in was shipped.
With the help of 3D printing expert Joris van Tubergen, PostNL supposedly sent an Ultimaker 2 3D printer (and presumably a power source) through the usual stages of delivery while the machine printed the trumpet.
So you just bought yourself a slice of pepperoni and you get an urgent text message. You need both hands to reply to the call, but you don’t want to put the whole slice of pizza in your mouth – especially with all that searing hot mozzarella.
We’ve seen what Boston Dynamics ATLAS robot can do. It’s an impressive piece of engineering. Surely a milestone on the journey to humanity’s ultimate destruction. But what would ATLAS say if we could hear his thoughts?
Citizens of Oooternia, Prince Finn is here to protect you from the Icer King, Marcel-Lyn and Skelemongrab, thanks to toy modder James Freckingham aka Robotic Industries.

For his first Raspberry Pi project, Redditor tvm78 used the tiny computer to turn an old monitor into a digital picture frame. But instead of loading pictures of their family, tvm78 decided to stay connected with their online community.
Lots of super heroes have sidekicks. Batman has Robin for instance. So far, Deadpool doesn’t have a sidekick, but James Corden, host of the Late Late Show, really wants the job. So Corden sat down with Ryan Reynolds to try and persuade him to create a new sidekick role.
Redditor qvm has a new motivation to save coins, and perhaps even earn some. They made a piggy bank with a fake skull on it that sings a song when you insert a coin.
A servo attached to the inside of the skull moves its jaw as the song plays.
We’ve seen a small remote-controlled trash can, now let’s check out how you can make a large one. YouTube’s star inventor Colin Furze used an electric wheelchair’s components to motorize and remotely control a wheeled trash can, or as the Brits call it, a wheelie bin.
What the duck is going on here? This duck is being pulled around by an RC car, because why not? That duck is obviously royalty and it is being given a parade/tour of the house, because it probably demanded it.
Whoever the deviant, glorious bastard was who came up with the latest Twitch masterpiece is a damned genius. It sounds like your typical boring Twitch stream on the surface – a contest where people sit on a couch and play Super Smash Bros.
We’re all fed up with telemarketers and robocallers. For Roger Anderson, the last straw was when his young son was harassed by a telemarketer. This motivated him to create the Jolly Roger Telephone Company, software that wastes the caller’s time by responding to them with recorded dialogue.
