A New Kid-Safe Version Of The 3Doodler Melts Plastic Without Burning Fingers

Kids love to doodle, be it with textas, crayons, finger paints, even food. That’s why the 3Doodler seemed like the perfect kids’ toy — except the heat needed to melt the 3D printing filament meant it was adults only. So the company has created a new version, designed specifically for kids, with new filament that melts with hardly any heat.


Woman Does Lord's Work, Makes Smart Vibrator

The vagina and clitoris are mysterious things. No, seriously they are. Scientists make big bucks studying the penis, but the vagina and clitoris often languish in official research circles. They languish in the bedroom too.


You Don't Need Any Starfleet Training To Fly This Star Trek USS Enterprise Drone

With umpteen different Star Wars movies enroute, it’s understandable that Star Trek fans might be feeling a little left out. But 2016 marks the 50th anniversary of the franchise, and to help celebrate Spin Master has turned its popular quadcopter drones into a flying version of the USS Enterprise.


This Transforming Imperial Shuttle Drone Looks Like An Actual Scene From Star Wars

Turning quadcopters into vehicles from the Star Wars universe isn’t new: Everything from TIE Fighters, to the Falcon, to even R2-D2 have taken flight. But none have been as convincing as Adam Woodworth’s Imperial Shuttle quadcopter with wings that actually retract.


The US Military Has Made The Fast Quadcopter I've Ever Seen

DARPA, the Pentagon’s research division, just revealed a speed demon quadcopter that flies 72km an hour. It’s like a cheetah drone. I can’t stop watching glorious footage of this glorious cheetah drone.


The Best BB-8 Yet Recognises Voice Commands And Comes When It's Called

Last September Sphero set the bar impossibly high when it comes to BB-8 toys, but at the 2016 New York Toy Fair this weekend, Spin Master might actually have the last word. Not only does its new remote control BB-8 stand over 41cm tall, it’s the first to respond to your voice commands.


This Nerf 'Battle Racer' Is A Terrible Idea

So Nerf guns, I get. Sure, you can run out of ammo quickly for the rapid-fire ones and reloading is a pain in the arse, but it can be a bit of fun in the right circumstances. A Nerf ATV though? Yeah, not buying it.


Watch The Mesmerising Magic Of 24 Flying Drones Dancing At Once

Video: Is it still magic if you know how it’s done? Is it still an illusion if computers are hiding the work? Marco Tempest plays around with that idea as two dozen drones buzz and fly all around him, seemingly controlled by his every move. Magic or not, it’s just cool to see 24 drones work together as part of a larger machine.


This Smartphone's Packaging Turns Into A VR Headset

Alcatel has been synonymous with cheap and somewhat cheerful Android phones for years now, but its latest play could be surprisingly interesting: not only does the handset sound good, but even the box it comes in could be useful.


These Rescue Drones Search Forest Trails Like Robot Rangers

Swiss researchers have come up with AI that lets small quadcopters automatically identify and follow man-made trails in forests. They say it’s to help in search-and-rescue, but it also sounds like nanny state drones that could one day hunt me down in the woods as I dodge search lights on my scramble toward sweet freedom.
