Hello Kitty Join Forces With PAC-MAN For Mobile Game and Merchandises

Heinz, I Hate You For Putting Ketchup On Hot Dogs. How Could You???

You know what’s the cruelest thing a person can do to hot dog lovers? Making them eat hot dog with ketchup, AKA tomato sauce. To even harbor the thought of topping hot dog with ketchup amounts to blasphemy, at least it appears to be the case of Chicago hot dog lovers. For the record, I am not too enthusiastic about having tomato-based sauce on hot dogs too. Apart from caramelized fried onions and lettuce, mustard should be the only condiment that should be on top a hot dog. Period. However, Heinz, the ketchup maker, is not quite please at Chicago hot lovers’ anti-ketchup-on-your-hot-dog sentiment and set out with a marketing campaign to win them over.

VR And Robot Are Here To Take Weight Off Harvesting Of Fruits In Vineyard

Before you throw up your hands and exclaim, “look, another example of robots are taking over our jobs,” you have to understand that the Remote Operated Vineyard Robot, or ROVR, developed by Virginia-based Digital Harvest is not here to take away your job. Unlike typical robots which are most definitely designed to give mankind a run for their money, the ROVR here is to value-add. Billed as one-of-the-kind technology, ROVR is the fruit of labor after eighteen months of development that is fixated on addressing labor scarcity in the vineyard industry.

Disneyland Paris To Get Marvel-Themed Disney’s New York Hotel

Disney’s biggest cash cow is probably not the surprise hit Frozen, or any other of its animated flicks. If anything, it would be Marvel and Star Wars, which now proves to be the two most worthy acquisitions the entertainment company has ever made. And I am not going to lie: we never loved Disney this much before. Disney has taken, in particular, Marvel to a height previously unthinkable and it is continuing to do so by giving fans more tangible experience outside of the theaters. The Marvel-themed Disney’s New York Hotel is one such endeavor. Continue reading Disneyland Paris To Get Marvel-Themed Disney’s New York Hotel

Hasbro Unveiled 12-inch Marvel Legends Series Black Panther Figure

Over the weekend, Marvel’s Jesse Falcon made an announcement that should have Marvel/Black Panther fans very excited. Falcon revealed the Marvel Legends 12-inch Black Panther Action Figure at the D23 Expo. Now, the thing is, this action figure is from toy maker Hasbro and so, one should not expect a boat load of details like you would get from collectibles from Hot Toys and the likes. Despite that being the case, the first images seem to point to quite a reasonable amount of details. Based on the upcoming Black Panther solo movie starring Chadwick Boseman as the T’ChallaBlack Panther, the toy version the king and protector of Wakanda is showed garbed in his vibranium-weave suit complete with the menacing retractable claws, locked and loaded. Continue reading Hasbro Unveiled 12-inch Marvel Legends Series Black Panther Figure

Tertill Is A Very Smart Weeding Robot From The Creator Of Roomba

If weeding is the single major reason why you gave up gardening, well, then be prepared to get into gardening all over again because Tertill (pronounced as ’turtle’) is here to help. Created by Joe Jones, the inventor of the original Roomba, Tertill is, you guessed it, the garden equivalent of a Roomba.

The most brilliant part about Tertill is, it is completely solar powered. It needs not charging dock to recharge. Continue reading Tertill Is A Very Smart Weeding Robot From The Creator Of Roomba

Drone Racing League Built The Fastest Racing Drone, Made World Record

It is official. The world’s fastest drone is the RacerX, built by Drone Racing League (DRL). RacerX set the Guinness World Records for the Fastest ground speed by a battery-powered remote-controlled quadcopter as it swooped back and forth across a measurement course of 328 feet (100 meters), clocking in a mind-bending average top speed of 163.5 miles per hour (263 km/h!). This record-making quadcopter was the handiwork Ryan Gury, DRL’s Director of Product, who was backed by DRL’s very own team of expert drone engineers.

Cabin Sleeper Bus: Sleep Like A Boss When Getting From LA To SF

The quickest way to shuttle between Los Angeles and San Francisco is hopping onto a plane which will take an hour twenty or so, but that’s not including the jam you will most definitely encounter when trying to get into LAX and lets not forget about the security checks and stuff. You could choose to take a train which will take a whopping 8 hours, or you could drive, which will put the stress on you for nearly six hours. Until Hyperloop realized, those are pretty much your alternatives, or so we thought. As it turns out, there’s an ‘aircraft’ on the road that will take you from LA to SF, stress-free, in a comfort that you can only imagine previously.
