The ol’ keyboard and mouse combo have proven nearly as versatile as personal computers themselves, but there are still cases when a more responsive or intuitive physical interface is needed. For example, many musicians today use MIDI controllers and sequencers.
If you hang around here much, you know we love our LEGO, and we also have an affinity for DIY robotics. A company called Atoms has announced its modular robotics building kits are now available to purchase.
Living spaces are getting smaller and smaller unless you can afford to pay the premium for a larger apartment. It makes sense to only have essential furniture at home, since they’re bulky and will give your flat a cramped feeling if you’ve got too much of them.

We’ve seen a variety of takes on the power strip that address not only the need for more outlets but the awkward fit of different plugs and adapters. Designer Chih-Yao Chen’s solution is simple: break the power strip apart so that you can re-arrange the parts as needed.
Designer Hadar Gorelik set out to find a solution to a problem that’s plagued many hungry people in the morning: there’s never enough toast to go around, because most toasters can only take two, maybe four slices of bread at once.
While this concept is a few months old, it’s still interesting. It’s true that ergonomic keyboards do make touch-typing easier, especially if you spend long hours in front of you computer, but the modular aspect of this keyboard is somewhat strange.
