We saw this home made beekeepers hood posted and actually mistook it for an art piece. We thought it was a Super Mario squid. You can see an example on this image, which is located on a site dedicated to cross stitching video game characters.
No. No no no. Bad Scientists. No treat for you.
There are 4 more links after the break, you’ll want to see them to get that baby out of your head.
We actually saw this one in person at CES. This giant hunk of plastic was turning side to side and slowly waiving its arms. They said it was “dancing”. We didn’t stick around to see if it got any better. Frankly giant anime style robot ladies creep us out, more with the thought of “who is going to buy this?”.
Next time you buy a digital camera and have to explain that it’s not necessarily the amount of megapixels that determines image quality, expect to hear about this 570 megapixel camera. We wonder if they’ve put some good optics in front of those sensors. It is cool looking, if not a bit scary. Do people smile when it is pointed at them, or run for cover?
Here’s a toy that tugs at those nostalgic nerves in the brain. It is a quad copter that is shaped like an X-wing. We really think this would be fun to play with. A front mounted camera would be cool. Maybe they’ll make an X-wing shell for the AR. Drone.
While we are on the subject of Star Wars, we want to leave you with this. A Star Wars themed burlesque show opened in L.A. recently. Who knew those storm troopers were so sexy under those suits of armor? They do mention that there was a “sexy Jabba the Hut”.
