Japanese Inventors Created a Real Working Transformers Robot

Lesson of the day: Do not sneer at sci-fi movies no matter how ridiculous the ideas might be. Why? Because, it might just turned into reality in your lifetime.

The coolest part is, it doesn’t just transform; It can actually walk and drive in their respective modes. Continue reading

How big a fan are you of bacons? If your answer is insanely huge, well, then the Fou Lard Bacon Silk Scarf is the must-have fashion accessory for you.
