DIY 29-foot Millennium Falcon Roof Decoration Is The Best Way To Welcome Star Wars:The Last Jedi

The Powell family and his neighborhood in Lafayette, California must be a super fan of Star Wars as judge by the giant Millennium Falcon replica looming over their roof. The 29-foot (8.4 meters) long, 700 pounds (318 kilograms) Millennium Falcon is not of space age material, obviously, but mainly of wooden frame and PVC piping, and interestingly, wrapped in a rather surprising material: a military-surplus parachute. The result is impressive enough to warrant the appearance of Han Solo, Princess Leia and the gang, well, not the real actors, but a printed version of the entourage which was thoughtfully placed in the cockpit. It is a fun touch to an awesome build. Continue reading DIY 29-foot Millennium Falcon Roof Decoration Is The Best Way To Welcome Star Wars:The Last Jedi

With Star Trek BORG Cube PC, Your Assimilation With PC Will Be Complete

Fans of Star Trek will be familiar with the recurring antagonist, an alien group known as Borg. The Borg you see here is not as sinister as the alien beings who forcefully make their captives assimilate. In fact, I think it is the opposite. However, if using a computer for work and entertainment, including gaming, are viewed as sins, then The Borg Cube PC might very well be evil. But who the hell cares? Seriously, a PC in the likeness of the Borg cube? Well, I’d say shut up and take my money! There are two versions of The Borg Cube PC: a 6-inch cube (herein known as The Borg Micro Cube) designed for productivity and entertainment (you know, surfing the Internet, watching movies and whatnot) and a larger 12-inch version (known as The Borg VR Cube) rigged for gaming.

Oh, Look, Someone Actually Made A Custom Car In The Likeness Of A Dick

Dickhead is a vulgar slang defined by “a stupid, irritating, or ridiculous man.” Now, if Batman’s ride is a Batmobile, wouldn’t the aforementioned person’s ride called Dickmobile? And Dickmobile this is. I mean, seriously, we don’t even need to tell you this, do we? Not that the person who created it is a dickhead or anything. Just that it is too obvious what it is. The intention however is not as vulgar as it seems. As it turns out, this car was created way back in 1969 by one Steve Paige and it was meant to be an “art car”, but really what was its purpose is unclear to us. Perhaps if you know something about this rolling willy, you can point us to the right direction. Continue reading Oh, Look, Someone Actually Made A Custom Car In The Likeness Of A Dick

Artist Wants You To Have Digital Bird That Travels The World In Your Home

Internet of Things let you connected, let you control physical devices, but this Internet of Things here does not. It is not ‘useless’ either. Instead, it has a unique and interesting pitch: it wants to put a digital bird in your house. Aptly called Birdhouse, what makes thing fun is, you can’t see the ‘bird’; you can only hear it and what’s more, this ‘bird’ is not always in the birdhouse. The idea is, it will ‘fly’ from Birdhouse to Birdhouse like a real migrating bird does. It will never know when it will come by; it is random and that’s precisely what makes Birdhouse interesting. You can, however, try to coax it to your home by touching the peg on the Birdhouse. Continue reading Artist Wants You To Have Digital Bird That Travels The World In Your Home

NASA New Rover Tire Is Airless, Returns To Original Shape After Deformation

Automakers share the pain of flat tires with motorists and that is why we have run flat tires. And that’s here on Earth where emergency vehicle services are always a phone call away. Now, imagine the same thing happen when the vehicle is, say, 33.9 million miles away on Mars. Surely, NASA did not have team of robotic AAA on standby there and so, when wheels are damaged, they are damaged, end of story for the Mars-roaming rover and that’s no cool. Continue reading NASA New Rover Tire Is Airless, Returns To Original Shape After Deformation

Oscar Is Modular, Lab-created ‘Human’ And We Are Glad It Isn’t Real

Today we want to share a disturbing look into the future of biotechnology or as some would call it, bio-hack. However, before run away in fear (or disgust), you have to know that it isn’t real. And to be honest, we thank god it isn’t. Anyways, the thing we want to tell you about is Project Oscar: The Modular Body. Noticed we put them in Italic? That’s because it was a fictional creation, a 56-video series about a disturbing project which involved 3D-printed modular body that can snap together like LEGO elements and powered by a battery pack. Continue reading Oscar Is Modular, Lab-created ‘Human’ And We Are Glad It Isn’t Real

Cyborg Beetles Could Join Cyborg Dragonfly In Saving Lives In Future

Remember the cyborg dragonfly developed by researchers at Draper and Howard Hughes Medical Institute. Well, as it turns out, it wasn’t the first. But really, are we even surprised? Cybernetic is like the next (inevitable) evolution of robotics. Anyways, researchers over at Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore, together with University of California Berkeley, has joined forces to developed a cyborg beetle whose flight can be controlled remotely by humans. I know how it sounds like. It sounds rather creepy (because of spying and stuff), but despite so, cyborg technology could be the answer to the future of search and rescue operations.
