Buffalo LinkStation Mini

by Edwin

Buffalo Technology recently rolled out its LinkStation Mini – the smallest and quietest Network Attached Storage(NAS) device from Buffalo’s stable so far. Don’t let its size fool you though, as it is more than capable of storing up to 1TB of data inside courtesy of a couple of 500GB 2.5″ hard drives within. It performs admirably through a Gigabit Ethernet connection, and measuring a mere 40mm x 82mm x 135mm, …

The RC Jump Jet is something different from the standard remote controlled planes and helicopters as it merges the best of both worlds. It takes off like a helicopter and flies like a plane, using four gyroscopically controlled rotors and a not an inconsiderable amount of flying skill. The swept back wafer thin wings and tail help to control the stability of forward flight, and the multi-directional control allows you …

Uberstix Universal Playing Set

I always love those building block toy sets such as the Erector, K’nex, and the Almighty Lego. The only problem is that these sets are incompatible with each other. However, the Uberstix, a new construction kit toy, is designed to connect to all of the aforementioned building toy brands, even the Zoobs (although I never heard of that one). The basic Uberstix building set contains about 450 pieces that allow …

I am proud to report that in just two decades of electronic progress, someone has actually designed a Nintendo Entertainment System that is …

Virtual Wall Stops Traffic

by Mark R

Virtual Wall Stops Traffic

In the 1982 science fiction classic Blade Runner, there is a scene where Deckard (a much younger Harrison Ford) is chasing a Replicant across futuristic city streets. If you listen closely, you can hear the crosswalks speak in a monotone voice, demandingly repeating “Cross now” or “don’t walk”. There was something really dystopian about seeing people follow these machines like electric sheep. I guess what disturbs me the most about …
