Swarm Quad-copters

I found this gem over at Gizmodo. Very very cool, and I for one welcome our robot overlords.

Amazon’s starts the Fire

Amazon Kindle Fire

Amazon Kindle Fire

So, Amazon debuted it's the Kindle Fire on Wednesday. This marks Amazon's first real tablet venture. The initial specs sound pretty good: 7" touchscreen, protected by gorilla glass; dual core processor; Android and a $199 price tag

The Fire doesn't have much data storage, no card slots, no 3G and the only port is for charging. But it has content. So the question is, can the Fire compete with existing tablets that do more, based mainly on the strength of the Amazon content cloud? It'll be interesting to see and if I can find $200 laying around, I may find out first hand. Of course, if Amazon wants to loan me one to review, you know I will!

LEGO 3D Milling Machine

Okay, this is really cool and another reason I need to buy LEGO's Mindstorm...


Okay, so this has been around for a while, but I'm still trying to figure out how to convince my wife that I need this.

I mean, c'mon you can control it with your iPad or iPhone, plus it has two cameras - me likey!

Evernote’s iPad Screen Flap App

Evernote ingeniously uses the iPad2's magnetic dust cover to control its Peek app. The dust cover is held in place by magnets and when you lift a flap, the iPad wakes up which triggers the app.

It's probably the coolest flash card you'll ever see. My iPad 1 seems so lame now.
