Remember the freaky cool robot dog by Boston Dynamics? Well some clever folks made an absolutely hilarious spoof of the video. Watch this one first them in order. ...

This is one freaky cool robot dog. I have not seen a robot move as well as this one does. 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). ...

Peteast Retractable Dog Leash 16-foot

I have been using a traditional leash for my pup, and previous pups. The good old fashioned leash served me well but had some issues which I didn’t realize until I upgraded to a retractable leash. Read on for the review of the Peteast Retractable Dog Leash after the break. (more…)

The Honda Bulldog Motorcycle is still in concept phase but fingers are crossed it becomes a reality. The Honda Bulldog wants to be a “Lovable Touring Partner”. Not sure exactly what that means, but it looks like it would be just as comfortable on the highway as on a dirt trail. The rugged Honda Bulldog has a 400cc liquid-cooled 4-stroke DOHC inline 2-cylinder engine, a six-speed transmission, dual headlights (like the Ruckus), thick 15-inch tires, a low seat, storage compartments on both sides of the fuel tank, and a built-in...

I recently bumped in to Rex while visiting my Aunt.  Upon walking up to her front door I heard, what sounded like a big dog, barking.  I was shocked, when did my Aunt get a dog?  Especially a dog with a bark this big? Long story short, the dog wasn't real.  It...

I am a big fan of Sanyo's Eneloop rechargeable batteries as they are fairly priced and work well.  They are now getting in the business of making a battery tester that looks like Snoopy and tests AA and AAA batteries. ...

First came the Boston Dynamics “Big Dog”, then came the hilarious “Big Dog Spoof”… now there is the Boston Dynamics “LittleDog”. The little dog is smaller (duh) and quieter than the original. These robots are starting to worry me...

As if the Boston Dynamics Big Dog robots weren’t scary enough, out comes a smaller one that can climb fences, traverse stairs, and open doors (sorta). The end is near. This robot is built by Ghost Robotics and is called the Minitaur ($10,000). Watch the video below while I build a wall around my house and upgrade my bolt locks.

The smart kids at Boston Dynamics (maker of the famous big dog robot) have a new robot in the works – the RiSE v3 pole dancer climber. The RiSE V3 robot is 28 inches long and climbs at...

There are few sounds that elicit fear in bad guys. Police sirens, a racking shotgun, and the rap of a stun gun. Imagine if you could always have your stun gun with you, as in it wasn’t too big. Well, this tiny stun gun might just be the answer. The Guard Dog Hornet Keychain Stun Gun ($39) has a built-in 3 LED flashlight, 6,000,000...
