A 3D Model Of Microsoft's HoloLens Is The Closest You Can Get For Now

As we all stop caring about 3D TVs, smartwatches and other recent tech fads, the attention now turns to head-worn interactive displays. And if you think Microsoft’s new HoloLens has what it takes to challenge the Oculus Rift, here’s your chance to look over the hardware — at least a 3D interactive model of it — courtesy of the folks at Sketchfab.


You'll Buy A VR Headset For The Movies, Not The Games

Smart people think that movies — not games — will be the first killer app for virtual reality. Maybe that’s why Oculus is poaching Pixar veterans for its very own virtual reality film studio, and showing off its very first film at Sundance this week.


Someone Stop Me From Buying This Incredible And Useless Telescoping Cane

Yesterday I did not know what an “appearing cane” was. Today I just have to have one. Someone please stop me.


Magnetic Buckyballs In A Blender Create One Terrifying Light Show

It didn’t take long for those “Will it Blend?” videos to get long in the tooth. You can only watch so many smartphones being torn to shreds before the novelty wears off. But to celebrate the birth of his 40th grandkid, Tom Dickson tosses a mountain of magnetic Buckyballs into the blades and the results are as spectacular as they are incredibly dangerous to try at home.

Nerf's New Blaster Puts Four Spinning Barrels Inside A Spinning Barrel

If you’re going to call a toy blaster the “Doominator” it better deliver on a sense of despair and foreboding — at least for those on the wrong end of the barrel. And it looks like Nerf has done just that because its latest creation features a set of four dart-laden spinning barrels that revolve around a larger spinning barrel to deliver a near-endless barrage of foam projectiles.


Why Leatherman's Multitool Bracelet Is Beautiful But Useless

A multitool you can wear on your wrist? Neat! But, will it actually be useful as, you know, a tool? I don’t think so. This is manly wrist fashion, not a genuinely useful wearable. For the last couple of years, braided lengths of paracord worn on your wrist have been a thing. The idea is that they enable you to easily carry 6m or more of the multi-purpose rope with you anywhere, leaving you prepared to tie stuff up on a moment’s notice.
