Fly Your AR.Drone with a Game Controller and Spy on Neighbors More Precisely

When the Parrot AR.Drone was released, it was supposed to be piloted from an iPhone or Android smartphone. However, that didn’t gel with some users since it’s not as precise as they’d like. Serious AR.Drone geeks have thought about using a game controller from their favorite video game, or even better, a flight-simulator joystick, and have put together various hacks to make this happen.

OriHime Robot Strikes Sexy Robot Poses

The OriHime robot was developed in Japan by Kentaro Yoshifuji, an engineering student at Waseda University, and it attempts to takes the robotic form to a sexy new level. While it has a more feminine form than the typical ‘bot, it definitely won’t be putting Victoria’s Secret models out of a job anytime soon.

5.05 KM (2.05 KM Speed Walk) + Short Run (3 KM)

I was pretty tired today, mostly because of the run last night and the fact that I went to bed somewhat later than usual. I didn’t really feel like going for a run, but one way or the other, I need to walk Spike, so it’s basically the perfect opportunity to go out for a run right after.

Collaspible iPhone Camera Handle: You’ll Never Cover Up That Lens Again

While point-and-shoot cameras are still popular, it comes as no surprise that the iPhone has taken the lead the most popular camera on Flickr. As such, if you’ve experimented, you’ve probably covered up the camera lens with your finger on more than one occasion while taking snapshots or videos. This easy, collapsible handle should help you to never make that mistake again.

R2-D2 Disneyland Souvenir Cup: Definitely The Droid We’re Looking For

This awesome R2-D2 cup was discovered by Ryan over at GeekAlerts and I have to say that it looks a lot better than the one we featured a while ago, which was somewhat expensive and only available in Japan. The best thing about this R2 unit is that it looks good and you won’t spend too much money, if you live near Disneyland, that is.

4.69 KM (1.69 KM Speed Walk) + Short Run (3 KM)

Since I went out on Friday and Saturday, I didn’t get much exercise, though I walked and danced quite a bit. While I went to bed at 6AM two days in a row, I went to bed at 8PM last night and got up at 6:30AM. Even with this long amount of sleep, I was still a bit tired during the day. I usually catch up on sleep on the weekend, but when you go to bed so late, it’s hard to sleep the whole day away, especially when you’ve got work to get done.

Terra Nova Occupation Resistance S01E11 (Fox)

Terra Nova billboard via Fox

It took some time, but I’m glad that we managed to see Terra Nova. The pilot had been delayed for a while, ever since last May. I didn’t expect much, since I don’t really keep apprised of the latest TV news, but I was happily surprised with the pilot. The setting is quite interesting. While the future 2149 setting isn’t really that important, it set the mood nicely. It was a sort of Big Brother-like future, where people weren’t allowed to have many children and the Earth was becoming non-sustainable for human life. The time fracture, opening 85 million years into the past, allows different pilgrimages to settle in healthy biosphere, but populated by dinosaurs. I like the fact that this isn’t the same timeline as before. They entered another worldine, which is the only way that this could make sense.

Warning: Spoilers ahead.
