Sphero’s iPhone-controlled Lightning McQueen Goes All Out Emotive

Kids these days are a lucky bunch. Because, not only do they get to play with RC version of Lightning McQueen, the protagonist car who’s born to race in Disney’s animated flick Cars, but also, watch him express himself. Confused? Allow me explain. You see, the Ultimate Lightning McQueen from Sphero is not your run-of-the-mill remote control toy (it’s Sphero, ya’know?). It is expressive, very expressive – thanks to a a 210 x 120 LCD display that provide him with animated eyes, as well as soft plastic incorporated at the mouth area, which works together to allow McQueen to be emotive as he spits out 300 different phrases and McQueen reacts to your touches too.

China Is Now Home To The World’s Largest Spokeless Ferris Wheel

Ferris wheel originated as a leisure ride that usually completes a cycle in matter of minutes, but since 2000, the idea of Ferris wheel is no longer carnival or amusement park exclusive when London Eye, which are basically fancy words for a huge-ass super slow-moving Ferris wheel with motorized capsules, opened to the public as a tourist sightseeing ride. Since London Eye (which stands 135 meters or 443 feet), a few other countries have followed suit to erect their own version of the Eye, though of course, those aren’t referred to as [insert city name] Eye.

Romper For Grown Up Men Is Thing Because, 2017

There are more than six months to go before 2017 ends and when it does (end), it will be remembered for quite a few things, most notably Trump being the Tweet-happy POTUS and also RompHim. Wait, what? What’s RompHim, you asked? Well, think men, then think onesies, and what you get would be RompHim. Yup. That’s right. RompHim is rompers for grown up men. It kind of invites the ewwww reaction, but it is also kind of a thing now, and if the Kickstarter community’s response is anything to go by, apparently, men loved it. Ok.

Zillion Wallet Is Sleek, Slim, And It Charges And Find Your Phone Too

I love what I see when I first lay eyes on Zillion Wallet, a wallet which claims to be the “world’s smartest, slimmest wallet,” but the truth be told, the market is saturated with minimal wallets. If the market is saturated, it is saturated and so, it won’t help whether or not it boasts unique features like RFID blocking, and/or even a battery built into it, or has a sleek pitch video that looks like plenty of money was spent on producing it – like what Zillion apparently did. So, yeah. It was true that I was drawn to it mainly by the pitch video our source has posted on its Facebook page. Ok, maybe the beautiful, super slim form does play a part too.

This Gorgeous Chunky Diver Watch Has A Big-ass Interchangeable Bezel

Bear with me for a while for I maybe a little biased here. You see, like many modern homo sapiens, I have a penchant for wrist worn timepiece – particularly, those big-ass wrist watches and although I may not take to the deep blue as much (say hi to the sharks for me), I do appreciate quality diving timepieces as much as any regular diver. While divers love them for its practical intents, I just love the fact that it is huge and uncomplicated (unlike aviation examples). So, naturally, when a hat tip on a big, chunky diving watch called Heavy Armor from Hong Kong-based watchmaker, DELTAt (pronounced as ‘delta’ ’t’) dropped in our inbox, I knew I have to talk about it here.
