This is very old but cool!
Check out these funny lookin’ Humanoid Robot Platforms from Hubo Lab at Kaist(Korean Advanced Institute of Science & Technology, kinda like MIT of Korea).
HUBO-FX1 is the human-riding robot having 12 DOF. The development concept is that the robot can walk naturally with carrying a person or a load of 100kg, so the lower b
Wow, check out this cool gizmo that will turn your laptop into a touchscreen! (if it ain’t touchscreen already)

Kevin Garrad (3rd Infantry Division) was on a street patrol in Iraq (Tikrit I believe) and as he rounded the corner of a building an armed (AK-47) insurgent came from the other side. The two of them were within just a few feet of each other when they opened fire. The insurgent was killed and Kevin was hit in the left chest where his IPod was in his jacket pocket. It slowed the bul
Check out some of the cool Antartic autonomous solar robots being developed here. Above is a picture of a guy (yes holding a laptop), snow-surfing at about 5mph…
Not too bad on solar power, we give thumbs up for that.
One morning, while taking walking behind the robot and dragging a sled of equipment for quantitatively measuring the strength and c
Check out this cool 200X USB Magnifier you can use to magnify stuff…
Check out this howto on doubling your battery life by replacing a linear voltage regulator (the thing that converts DC voltage, e.g. from 12V to 5V) to a switching regulator. Switching regulators are way more efficient than your typical off-the-shelve crappy regulators such as 7805 which get too hot too fast. Get the Dimension Engineering regulators here. This howto could easily be appl
Check out this cool steel spider mouse from Japan!
Looks like it goes for around $100…
These mouse controls, like the Daruma mouse, are optical with motion sensors so you can control the cursor by tilting the mouse instead of sliding it over a pad. These also have directional button on the back of the ball if you want to manipulate the c
Check out this robot that can lift patients in hospital beds. Wow!
In a public demonstration held in Tokyo on March 28, a human-sized android showed off its weightlifting skills by successfully picking up a 30-kilogram (66-pound) package from a desk and lifting a 66-kilogram (145-pound) humanoid doll out of bed.
Check out the Sanki Manner Jet, which you can take “pollen showers” to get rid of those allergic pollens from the environment.
I ’spose I got carried away with the title as this is for removing pollen rather than cleaning the skin. You step in and your weight sets off the jets which spray you with clean air to knock off the pollen th
