This video for Jibo is impressive. Will it actually be this good? This could well be the first ever “family robot”. You have the chance to support it. You could say you have the chance to sow the seeds of the robot revolution. No downside to that, right? [Back this Campaign] There are 30 days […]

These Avenger wall lights are proving to be quite popular. They’re battery operated so you don’t need to drill holes in the wall and I’m told are good for persuading kids to sleep and don’t get too warm either. There’s a few variants but here’s a small collection from Amazon. Thor’s Hammer at Amazon $39.06. […]
Would you build a computer inside an Imperial Walker? This AT-AT casemod rather proves someone would. This casemod began life as a Hasbro AT-AT and gained a Zotax Z86 Mini ITX mobo with an INtel Core i7-2600K CPU, a Sapphire 6870 GPU and 8GB of RAM. Not bad for an AT-AT. Not bad for a […]
I travel a lot. In fact, many (perhaps most) of my blog posts here are written in hotel rooms, in airports or other glamorous places business travel takes people – like railway stations, conference rooms and the Starbucks around the corner when you’re 15 minutes too early for the meeting. My main problem when it […]
Geek Native features Kickstarters for new RPGs often. Sometimes the blog talks about computer games. Rarely there’s a hardware story. PocketScan was not created for gamers but, wow, check out the uses. Some concerns here. Just because scanning could be easy does not mean gamers should scan copyright books. Authors in this industry don’t get […]
Deviant artist zoki64 created this Tron Legacy design suitable for a Nintendo 64. It’s all sort of retro-futuristic cool. These picture’s don’t do the design justice. There’s a three+ minute YouTube tour of the design.
I’ve seen some bold attempts to bring game-changing tech to the tabletop roleplaying hobby via Kickstarter before. Some look great. Some, I think, look like dead projects walking. Then there’s the GameChanger from Richard Woodfield and Splendiferous Press. Frankly I’m not sure what to make of this one. So here’s the pitch video, with loud […]
These headphones were a custom creation. I think they’re worth every Euro spent on them provided you don’t have a problem with people grabbing your head as a joke. What do you think? Would you wear these?
This is a geeky cred project. A few months ago Michael Eurek was challenged by a friend to take a classic game and use modern technology to recreate the game world environment. The result is Temple of Time. Eurek uses Unreal Engine 4 to revuild The Temple of Time from The Legend of Zelda. What […]
Is the future here? This orchestra of drones play a cracking cover of the Space Odyssey theme. I know nothing about music so forgive me when I say “the drones even manage to do the slidy bits” perfectly. With one success under their wings these squad of dronecopters then move on to master some other […]
