This High-tech Turret Can Detect And Remove Rogue Drones From The Sky

As much as I like drones, the sheer number of them buzzing in the sky has quickly put them on par with houseflies which means they are annoying and potentially dangerous. And that’s not to mention the intrusion of privacy to both everyday folks (not just celebrities, btw) and companies alike. With these new threats looming, they resulted in the creation of a whole new business opportunity: anti-drone technology and the anti-aircraft-like surveillance system you see here, called SkyDroner, is one of the many popping up in the market.

This Piece Of Wood, Called Surface, Is Actually A Bluetooth Speaker

Room One Surface Wall-mounted Wireless Speaker is made of wood. You may ask, “whats the big deal?” It is true that nearly all good speakers are made of wood, but can you say your speaker has no grille or any visible cones that are generally the instrument of sound reproduction? I am sure you can’t, but that is really what the Room One Surface has and does not have. And, btw, the piece of curved wood you see there? It is not just any piece of wood; it is a piece of engineered wood responsible for transmitting sound with best sound dispersion possible.

I Think I Can Spend All-Day Watching This LEGO Person Mowing The Lawn

JK Brickworks, AKA Jason Allemann, is an avid LEGO enthusiast who have the penchant for creating intricate kinetic sculptures out of LEGO. His latest work, the LEGO Lawnmower Man Kinetic Sculpture, is based off fellow LEGO enthusiast/YouTuber Josh David’s lawnmower kinetic sculpture, entitled LEGO Lawn Mower. Like Josh’s variant, Jason’s version uses a combination of LEGO Technic and non-LEGO Technic parts and in the usual JK Brickworks fashion, Jason makes a great LEGO kinetic sculpture greater by refining what Josh has done by throwing in his very own figure from his Sisyphus model into the mix – in addition to several other tweaks.

Hoversurf’s Hoverbike Gets Inducted Into Dubai Police Department

In a short few months since the revealing of the real-life functional hoverbike, Hoversurf has apparently secured a deal to provide Dubai Police Department with the company’s low altitude flying machines for cop duties. However, don’t expect the Hoversurf to do pursuit duties though. It obviously won’t cut it in several departments. This ain’t no real-life The Fifth Element, yet. The Middle East kingdom’s police department has better vehicles, namely Bugatti, that will do better than zipping at 43 mph (70 km/h), albeit not sixteen feet in the air, and the Bugatti can definitely do a lot more than 25 minutes run while carrying way more than 660 lbs (300 kilograms) of gear.

U.S. Versus Japan Mech Robot Battle Is Over And This Is How To Watch It

Yup. Apparently, the much anticipated world’s first mech robot battle has happened. It was conducted in private, without spectators, due to safety concerns, at an abandoned steel warehouse in Japan. When the challenged was issued by the American’s MegaBots team, the Japanese’s Kurata built by Suidobashi Heavy Industry has all but one condition: the battle will be strictly a melee battle. That’s right. No projectile firing weapons. It is just the good’ol hand-to-hand robot fight. The U.S. team accepted the condition, but their Mk.II at that time wasn’t rigged for an all-out brawl and so, the team set out to build the third generation Mk MegaBot, the Mk.III Eagle Prime, which the team took to Kickstarter to pull in funds for the build.

One Person Took “Volvos Are Built Like A Tank” A Little Too Literally

You know how people used to say old Volvos are built like tanks? The saying was probably stem from the marque’s proven track record of survivability in accidents – thanks to the company relentless pursuit of safety since the 70s. My dad used to own a Volvo 200 series that hailed from the 1980s and boy, were the doors thick like a tank’s armor (figuratively speaking, that is) and while thankfully, we did not met with any accident, I can only imagine the ultra thick door probably would have stood up to most impacts. Anyways, as it turns out, someone may have took the aforementioned saying a little too literal by turning his (or was it her?) V70 into a road-going tank, or at least, one that bears an uncanny resemblance to a tank. Continue reading One Person Took “Volvos Are Built Like A Tank” A Little Too Literally
