Pebble's New Smartwatches Have A Fitness-Focused Obsession

You Can Now Buy An Alien-Looking 3D-Printed Violin

A 3D-printed replica is nothing more than a plastic trinket if it doesn’t function as well as the original.

A British Museum Wants To Rebuild Eric, The Grandfather Of Robots

In 1928, only seven years after Czech writer Karel Capek first used the word “robot”, the United Kingdom built a working automaton of their own, unimaginatively named Eric. Now, almost 90 years later, a museum wants to rebuild him.


PayPal Will Soon Stop Protecting You From Bad Crowdfunding Projects

It’s a well established fact that backing a crowdfunded campaign is like playing with fire. Unfortunately for backers everywhere, however, there’s yet another roadblock in the way of getting that cash back: PayPal is taking away its purchase protection for crowdfunded payments.


Yup, This Vertical Record Player Is Rad
