James Cameron, perfectionist that he is, seems pretty happy with Terminator 2: Judgment Day And who can blame him? It's a stunning action film. So for the 3D theatrical re-release, Cameron left the film alone. Mostly.

The Hydraulic Press Channel has lost some of its appeal over time, but it regains a little novelty when it crushes something that explodes. In a completely unsafe demonstration, the channel's purveyors compressed a battery pack with fiery results.
Video: Over the weekend, we put together a very unscientific test to see whether a car could beat a plane in a race from Sydney to Canberra. Here's how our challenge went.
During his time starring in Batman: The Animated Series, and in the countless video games, direct-to-video movies and other spin-offs since then, Kevin Conroy has defined Batman's voice for an entire generation. Which is why it's such a delight to hear him become Christopher Nolan's own Dark Knight.
The Raspberry Pi is already a fairly tiny piece of hardware, but with some tinkering, it's possible to go even smaller. Modder NODE, who's hacked a few Pis in his time, has a new project doing the rounds — a fully-functional Raspberry Pi 3 that's a mere 7mm thick.
Adam Savage's One Day Builds series for Tested has taken him everywhere from making faux Apollo-era spacesuit parts to a ping pong machine gun, but this time he went a little more medieval. In this week's instalment, Savage decided to remake the legendary sword from 1981 fantasy film King Arthur using some of the same techniques deployed by prop technicians for films like the Lord of the Rings series.
Everything in moderation. You could say that about, well, everything. But sometimes you want hard numbers. How many socks can you stick up your nose before the police get involved? Is a frog in one's bidet one too many? Oh and what amount of orange consumption would result in death? Well over 9000, it seems.
Sydney and Melbourne, you've had your turn to be eaten alive by zombies. Soon Adelaide will have its chance in the post-apocalyptic sun when Zedtown — the "real-world, zombie-themed" game of tag — arrives in early October.
Seth MacFarlane is a bit of a controversial figure. Sure, Family Guy might be one of the longest-lasting animated shows on television, but I'm not a huge fan. After all, the man can be problematic... to put it mildly. Yet, his new show, The Orville, coming later this fall, is one I'm very much interested in... because of something I am a fan of: Star Trek. Even though there's an official Trek coming out, this one might end up coming out on top.
The new full-length trailer for the latest adaptation of Stephen King's It is damn scary, with Bill Skarsgard's Pennywise looking, sounding, and overall being downright terrifying. However, Skarsgard isn't the first clown to take on the role, and he has some oversized shoes to fill. Lucky for us, Tim Curry's iconic clown has a place in the reboot.
Just like anything with a lithium-based battery has the potential to explode, just about any tech product that's considered "smart" is potentially hackable. Which is why one clever hacker was able to break the Armatix iP1, a smart gun that is designed to only be fired by a person wearing a paired smartwatch.
Video: Tesla held a competition for fans to make it an advertisement — and there's an Australian finalist. Some of the entries, like the one from popular tech YouTuber Marques Brownlee, have some serious production value behind them. Some are a little more low-key. But they're all great — so enjoy.
Unlike an RC car that will simply crash into a wall if you lose control, an expensive drone can potentially fly for kilometres after it stops heeding your remote's commands. But while a shotgun can blast your treasured robot out of the sky before causes any trouble, this net-firing, air-powered, anti-drone cannon seems like a much safer solution.
