As if the LEGO Architecture Studio couldn’t get any cooler, a clever hack was unveiled last week that could let designers and architects translate their build objects into 3D data for idea generation and literal rapid prototyping with LEGO models. Although most professional designers and engineers will probably want to spend their time jumping straight…

When our electronics give up the ghost, or simply become obsolete, we usually bid farewell by dumping them unceremoniously in the garbage or recycling bins. For a few of us, it’s a bit like throwing away a partly-eaten chicken salad – someone could do with that food energy! Because the same goes for electronics -…

There is nothing more cool than watching the dude in this video sculpt a fake spider in virtual reality. Using a Sculpting Tool, VRClay allows you to freely sculpt with tools like buildup, pull, push, drag and others to your heart’s delight. The drool quotient is that it’s compatible with Oculus Rift. So the lucky…

Holy mother of inventions! The Milling Machines designed by Arthur Sacek are so exciting they send tinngles through our nether regions. Too bad Arthur doesn’t particularly want to share how he exactly built his machines, but we do know that as a member of Brazil’s ZOOM Education for Life, Arthur is a genius.

Many notches above a regular drone and radically different from the helicopter, the Volocopter has carved its own niche and is one ride that we are awaiting with much anticipation. Apparently, once its given the air-worthy green signal, German residents with a private pilot license will be able to fly
 e-volo’s Volocopter in the near…

How spoilt is your fish? Like, do you take it for a walk, buy it a fancy tracking collar with camera or feed it in a diamond-encrusted bowl? Blah, no excuses, the least you could have done was get it a new set of wheels and made it independent. Yup, if you would have invested…

We all need to collectively thank ZUtA Labs for their innovative ZUtA Pocket Printer. We shudder to imagine the outcome of our guilt and shame if another decade had passed by without any radical thought given to this humble computer peripheral! Almost every aspect of computing has changed but this, and like we mentioned –…

You have to hand it to the Japanese who are making art out of drinking your daily dose of tipple. *hic* Suntory Whiskey is a brand that is urging all to enjoy whiskey in a more innovative way. Their “3D on the Rocks” campaign suggests that you savor your whiskey with beautiful ice sculptures, forged…

We are totally freaked out with the OutRunner – The World’s First RC Running Robot, kinda reminds us of the Roadrunner from the Looney Tunes cartoons! The only thing missing is the “beep-beep”! Anyways, sound effects aside, this Kickstarter project is kicking some ass, thanks to the lovely videos showcasing OutRunners’ running talents. We got…

It’s late at night, I’m drinking stale coffee and as I file this report, New Matter’s MOD-t 3D Printer has crossed the three hundred thousand-dollar mark and is 80% funded. It’s been up on IndieGoGo for less than 24-hours where the early-bird specials sold out within the first two hours, and every other pledge is…

Funded by the European Commission with whopping grant of €3.5 million ($4.86 million), the MatHero Project takes on the onus of providing us with environmentally friendly, organic photovoltaics that are efficient and cost effective. As a part of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), one of Europe’s leading energy research establishments’ initiative, you can expect some…

If imaginary flying is what takes your fancy then you’ll have to fly (pun intended) to Zurich, just to experience the vomit-inducing delight of the Birdly interaction platform a dedicated team of flight enthusiasts/researchers has prepared for you. The setting is quite simple and straightforward, an awkward perch modified to suit your bodily flight, an…

If you want to learn the art of space management then just look into one of the many decommissioned Submarines housed in our museums. The space crunch is so bad that everything is rationed, even toilet paper! The last thing you’ll find there is stacks of recreational books. The question now is; what do you…

Outside TV commercials of exploding people, chipmunks with black lung gnawing you to death in your sleep and something called ‘cold turkey,’ there’s little convincing someone to squelch that smoking habit, unless they actually decide to take the necessary steps. Turns out, there’s a process, and the journey, should you muster a hacking cough to…

The future is here! How do we know it? Well, first you had Amazon selling products online through their store; next you had them invade your Smartphone and apps. Now you have them in the palm of your hand! We are talking about the Amazon Dash – a device that makes shopping simple.
