Bandai’s NetTansorWeb Robot is all over the house

by Mark R

If you’ve seen the Disney/PIXAR movie WALL-E last summer, then the Bandai NetTansorWeb robot will probably look strangely familiar.

Carcade takes in-car video games to a new level

by Mark R

Sometimes I wish that the full console games that they put in cars now were available when I was a kid. Even if car companies could have put an Atari 2600 on a backseat screen, it would have made long drives a lot less boring.

Infrared Tracker Remote Control Car follows the light

This isn’t the first time that we have reported on Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), and most of the time, these are used for spying in enemy territory. It appears that UAVs have medicinal uses as electronic flying couriers. Think of them as that big G button on Speed Racer’s Mach 5 that fires an electronic homing pigeon.

Draganflyer X6

by Edwin

I’m not too sure if the Draganflyer X6 was not spelt properly on purpose, but whatever it is, the name isn’t really more important compared to what the Draganflyer X6 offers. The Draganflyer X6 is a remotely operated, unmanned, miniature helicopter designed to carry wireless video cameras and still cameras. Operate the Draganflyer X6 helicopter with the easy to use handheld controller while viewing what the helicopter sees through video …
