Want: Printed Pancake Breakfast

How cool would it be if you could pick the shape of your pancakes to be anything under the sun. All of my pancakes look like the sun itself. Kinda round and burning so hot you can’t touch them or even look directly at them. Miguel Valenzuela built this PancakeBot which can be programmed to …

Good Dog: Dog Takes a Drone for a Walk

The animal world seems to be getting along pretty well with the robot world. I’m guessing there is some sort of mutually beneficial agreement between the two parties for when the robots rise up and take over the earth.

Want: Tiny Robotic Printer

If you’ve ever had to set up your own or help anyone else with theirs you know that printers are the absolute worst technology on the planet. Everything about them is horrible.

Because Japan: Giant Mech Hits the Streets of Japan

Everyday I find a new reason that living in Japan would be like living in Wonderland. The only thing stopping me from moving there is… I’m not really sure. Probably the language barrier.
