We have a good and a bad news. First, the bad news. We have received a DMCA take down notice for the poorly taken image posted with the article of the supposed LEGO UCS Hulkbuster: Ultron Edition at Nuremberg Toy Fair.

But the silver lining is, at the same time when we received the take down notice, we read of official news coming out of New York Toy Fair with regards to this Hulkbuster UCS set. It was revealed over the weekend at the New York Toy Fair with official images along with a few critical information.

Intel Light Drones Open For Winter Olympic, Made New World Record

It looks like Intel is determined to be the name in the new-age fireworks with the use of drones. Not content with having just 100 drones up in the sky in 2015, the processor maker put 500 drones into the sky in Germany in 2016, ‘dancing’ to a live orchestra, which bagged it a Guinness World Records, and this time, Intel has outdone itself again with 1,218 Intel Shooting Star drones which lit the night sky at the Winter Olympic 2018 opening ceremony in PyeongChang, South Korea, on February 9. The feat was witnessed by Guinness World Records and subsequently recognized as a new world record for “most unmanned aerial vehicles airborne simultaneously.” Continue reading Intel Light Drones Open For Winter Olympic, Made New World Record

This Is GarageTime, The AirBnB For Letting Strangers Use Your Garage

I am sure you are familiar with AirBnB. To some extend, AirBnB has revolutionized the entire temporary accommodation business and gave traditional hotels a run for their money. But do you know, the concept has been applied to garage too? Yes. You heard that right. A one-man, self-financed startup aims to solve the motoring enthusiasts who do not have a garage to work on their motor vehicles and no, it is not called AirGarage. It is called GarageTime. What GarageTime does is to provide a platform for motoring enthusiasts who do have access to a private garage to hook up with those who have garage space to space, so they can work on their cars, trucks, motorcycles, or whatever is it that they need work on without turning to professional workshops.

LEGO 76105 UCS Hulkbuster: Ultron Edition At Nuremberg: Is It Even Real???

We are not sure if this is the actual thing or it was something that someone made up. According to our source, this LEGO 76105 UCS Hulkbuster: Ultron Edition was supposedly uncovered at the recently concluded Nuremberg Toy Fair 2018. But there are reasons why we should take it with a pinch of salt. Firstly, we find no official words on this set, only pictures and information available to us by our source. You must thinking ‘it is totally possible to have no official words from LEGO’. Well, to that, here’s our second point: we scoured the Internet and even dug up official texts that were only released at Nuremberg Toy Fair, but nothing turned up. Zit. Nada. Nothing. Continue reading LEGO 76105 UCS Hulkbuster: Ultron Edition At Nuremberg: Is It Even Real???

Flight With Over 80 Plumbers Forced To Return Because Of Toilets Problems

If there was a practicing physician onboard a flying passenger airline, he could probably attend to someone with a medical emergency and you would think, if a flight with professional plumbers onboard had toilets problem, the issue could be solved right up in the air, right? Clearly, that wasn’t the case with Norwegian Air flight #DY1156, when it reportedly met with toilets problem when there were over 80 plumbers onboard. Just in case you are wondering… these plumbers were flying from Oslo to Munich to attend a trade event and hence, the congregation of so many same trade folks onboard. Unfortunately, the toilets issue were not for them to rectify, even though the lot of them were probably more than capable to do the job.

A Man Took A Bite On An iPhone Battery And Regret Immediately

There are a lot of reasons to be shopping for a replacement battery for iPhone since Apple has admitted throttling the processor to cope with weakening battery. However, shopping is one thing, making sure you get the legit part is another and also, not biting into one of them (the battery, that is) is a big no-no. Don’t believe. Just try asking the man who was apparently shopping for a replacement battery for his iPhone in China. Now, I have no idea what kind of weird science he had learned that led to him taking a bite on a replacement battery in an apparent attempt to ‘test’ it. Continue reading A Man Took A Bite On An iPhone Battery And Regret Immediately

Fake Celebrity Porn Is Not Only A Thing, It’s Easy To Create And We Should Be Very, Very Afraid

You have probably read about how a video recording of a person giving a speech can be fake and also, it should be of no surprise that fake celebrity porn is also common, but the latter is limited to still or some doppelgangers. Well, that’s until late last year when someone on Reddit showed that fake celebrity porn videos can be made easily with mind-blowing realism. Of course, by easy we meant home brewed, but it is not something a person who is clueless about computer can pull off. Still, what Redditor ‘deepfakes‘ did was so impressive that we should all be very afraid.

Car Made Out Of Snow Was So Real That It Almost Fool the Police

This year saw some record breaking cold in some countries. Even in tropical countries like Singapore, where heat between 29-36 degrees Celsius (84-97 Fahrenheit) is a norm, it saw a record 21+ (70 Fahrenheit) temperature. You can only imagine if a cold spell were to hit a country that is already known for pretty crazy winters. One such country would be Canada, particularly in Montreal in the state of Quebec, where it experienced a colder-than-usual temperatures over last few months. With the cold, comes the abundance of snow and in the case of Montreal, a resident, machinist and woodworker Simon Laprise, took the opportunity to have some fun.

In Japan, Hello Kitty And Other Artsy Decorated Manhole Cover Are A Thing

There is nothing particularly proud to say about sewers that are part of modern city’s sanitary system, the sewerage system. While so, it is a indispensable part of our lives which we largely ignore. It is being ignored about every country, except one: Japan. Apparently, some Japan’s sewer covers, AKA manhole covers, are decorated with lively and colorful art, including pop culture icon Hello Kitty. Yup. Ms. Kitty is everywhere, now even on the very unglamorous manhole cover. Continue reading In Japan, Hello Kitty And Other Artsy Decorated Manhole Cover Are A Thing
