From the people who brought us Canned Unicorn Meat and the playable Electronic Rock Guitar T-shirt, comes a new gift to the world: a chance to become a geek cultural icon! ThinkGeek has opened its creative process to the "smart masses" with its new IdeaFactory.
We know there are are plenty of things you like about DVICE already, but there are also some things you'd like to improve. Well, now's the time to tell us what's working and what isn't, because we're about to make some changes around here. And we want to make sure they're the changes YOU want to see.
How do you make a point when a major distribution network won't broadcast your shows? Why you launch a full-scale zombie attack, of course. That's the strategy AMC employed recently on the streets of New York.
Project Phoenix is DARPA's plan to use robots in orbit to pilfer the functional bits off of dead satellites to create working ones. It's one of the crazier ideas DARPA's put out there (in a while), and the agency looks...
