Auto-tracking Dartboard Makes Everyone a Pro
When you’re at the pub, drinking all night and playing darts, I bet your aim is pretty bad. For most of us, hitting the bulls-eye becomes harder the more you drink. Not when you’re playing with Mark Rober’s motion-tracking dart board though.

Just how many ways can one guy use the video capabilities of his mobile devices to entertain us with?

DigitalDudz Turn T-shirts into Awesome Halloween Costumes on the Cheap
Last year, NASA engineer Mark Rober shared his cool see-through iPad costume with us, but while it was one of the more clever geeky costumes I’d seen in a while, it wasn’t exactly cheap to pull off – you needed a pair of iPads to do it.
