After millions of dollars in research and testing, robotic insects designed for surveillance are now a reality. But there's another, cheaper way to creep out your friends and family with tech-powered pests operating under your direction.
This steampunk gun called the Goliathon looks like it can channel the forces of the universe into one hell of a deadly shot. You'd figure anything with that much copper piping, gauges and metal has to be lethal right?
I hope you've got 1.21 jiggawatts worth of "Great Scott!" all lined up and ready to go, because a Lego* jury is officially pondering the release of a Back to the Future themed DeLorean set.
Besides its taste (and its qualities as the next generation of computer memory), the greatest thing about Jell-O is how tactile it is. You can jiggle it and wiggle it in all kinds of crazy ways, and there's now a kit that lets you add some musical accompaniment to all the fun.
The Free Universal Construction Kit (which we are taking great pains not to abbreviate anywhere in this article and will henceforth refer to it as "the Kit"), is a set of about 80 adapter blocks that can be used to connect all of those childhood construction sets you used to play with (Legos, Tinkertoys, etc.) to one another. And it's about freakin' time, too.
Quadrotors are so hot right now. It seems a day doesn't pass when we don't hear about them doing something cool like playing the theme to James Bond or flying in formation. That's all fine for a regular quadrotor, but none of those are Back to the Future DeLorean quadrotors.
More important than casual games, mobile apps focused on education and early development are a largely underserved category on the iPhone. But now a team has developed a simple yet ingenious way to marry tactile toys with iOS apps for education.

Former toymaker and Action Figure Insider blogger Jason Geyer dropped a whole slew of failed concepts for Star Wars toys pitched to various companies. I don't know what's crazier, that some of these toy concepts got rejected or that, considering the expansive Star Wars toy empire, it hasn't all been done.
This is the story of a patient and passionate man. Known only as "Joe from Saskatchewan, Canada," he wasn't just content to collect and play with remote control vehicles, he's put them to work excavating his basement for the last seven years.
