HP creating a flexible display Dick Tracy Watch

by Mark R

I always include a photo of whatever it is that I am writing about, and I have to admit that this photo from my source doesn’t seem to match its subject matter.

by Mark R

I remember there was a show called Team Knight Rider. Yes, there was a show called Team Knight Rider, and I’m pretty certain that David Hasselhoff would not want to be associated with this.

Teddy Bear Robot from Fujitsu

by Mark R

Fujitsu is very proud of their newest Teddy Bears, and these are certainly not like any Teddy Bears I know. Man, even Teddy Ruxpin would kill himself if he were still alive today.
