Super fast magnetic micro robots are the future of manufacturing

Controlled by magnets and sometimes by wire, these teeny tiny robots can be programmed to perform thousands of incredibly precise manufacturing tasks without any expensive, bulky and constraining larger machine set up. Just program them, put them down and let them go.

Thing you need in your life: The Darth Vader helmet toaster
It’s good to see that just because Disney now owns Star Wars that they haven’t given up the Lucas tradition of granting product licensing rights to literally anything. This beauty isn’t available yet, but it will be in June.

Morning feel good: Guy gets Bryan Cranston to help him ask a girl to prom

Fantastic that Cranston would be a good sport, but the delivery just isn’t the same without the shaved head, the glasses and the mustache.

Oklahoma protesters threaten to “secdee” if Cosmos isn’t cancelled

Furious with Neil DeGrasse Tyson o their Fox channels and his anti-Creationist “knowledge” and his truthy “facts” have gotten a group of people in Oklahoma so hopping mad, they’ve threatened to secede from the Union if Cosmos isn’t pulled off the air. You know, to form a freer union with one god, one religion, where science is outlawed and the truth about what we know about the world squashed. Good times those will be.

Needy robotic toaster will sell itself if it feels neglected

If this is the future, I opt-out. 

Brad is the star of ‘Addicted Products,’ a design experiment recently named Best in Show at the 2014 Interaction Awards. As a connected toaster, he’s in constant contact with other connected toasters like him — and thus keenly aware of how much action they’re getting. If he’s not being used as much as his friends, Brad gets upset.

Ignore him long enough, and he’ll take a more drastic measure: pinging a network of potential owners to find a new home.

Adult-sized electric BigWheel trike… what more do you need in life?

There are very few feelings in life like the thrill you got when you pulled your first 360 on your BigWheel. Like so many of the most amazing things that will ever happen to you, you were probably too young to remember it- and there’s no way to find that feel again. Or, is there?

I’ll need about $1600 to find out, however. That’s what Local Motors is asking for a new Verrado (show, above) which is scheduled to start shipping to in June.
