I have always thought that riding on a Segway tended to look a bit goofy, but I actually think Segway may be onto something with the X2 Golf. Let’s face it, golfers already look a tad bit goofy, so riding on the Segway X2 Golf may actually be fitting… and fun. The X2 Golf goes 12.5 miles,...

Want to make light of the fact that you drive a Toyota Yaris? Slap a windup key on that puppy and call it a hybrid. The windup key comes in two models, stationary and moving. The moving version needs...

The motors on the unit make it sound like a thousand bumble bee’s attacking, but the robot walks like a dog (seems more like a deer to me however). Amazing how well it is able to traverse over terrain, take a big kick from a bully, walk on ice/snow, and jump. The project of Boston Dynamics, with funding from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). ...

I like this product… solves a couple of problems in one tidy device. In many third world countries they have to travel quite a ways to get dirty water, then tote it back to their hut house to boil the water before using it. Seems like it might easier to just use a gravity filter...
