  • 3D Systems v. Formlabs Patent Lawsuit Dismissed

    3D Systems v. Formlabs Patent Lawsuit Dismissed

    The lawsuit between Formlabs and 3D Systems relating to stereolithography has been dismissed with prejudice, a move that frees Formlabs to make their printers without fear of further patent problems. 3D Systems first sued Formlabs back in 2012 for patent infringement related to their laser-based stereolithography techniques. In the interim, the company has grown to 100 people and has released… Read More

    This 3D-Printed Star Wars Ball Bot Is Ready To Awkwardly Co-Pilot Your X-Wing

    Today’s Fun 3D Printable™ comes to us from Thingiverse user lilykill. The model is rendered in 3D and the head is connected to the ball body so it won’t be able to spin freely. The best thing, though? The model is life-size and can be printed to be about as big as R2-D2. Read More

  • Next Version Of Google Glass Said To Be Powered By Intel

    Next Version Of Google Glass Said To Be Powered By Intel

    Google hasn’t thrown in the towel on Google Glass if this Wall Street Journal report is to be believed. Reportedly, Google is hard at work at the next version of Glass and has ditched Texas Instruments in favor of Intel. The first consumer version of Google Glass left a lot to be desired. From a short battery life to a still-bulky casing, whatever mobile chipset Google taps for the job… Read More

  • Clime Stickers Are Up For Pre-Order, Will Tell You (And Baby) If It’s Cold Outside

    Clime Stickers Are Up For Pre-Order, Will Tell You (And Baby) If It’s Cold Outside

    I first covered Clime a few months ago when they were little more than 3D-printed nubbins. Now these nubbins have brains. Essentially they are tiny indoor/outdoor thermometers. You can put them anywhere and then check your mobile device for the temperature. You may have something similar in your home – they used to called them weather thermometers – but older systems are far… Read More

Our review unit has enough… Read More

  • The E-Label Act Will Remove Those Silly FCC Symbols From The Back Of Future Gadgets

    You know all that crap that’s listed on the back of your smartphone and tablet? It looks something like this: A jumble of letters and words, an FCC symbol, and instructions to not throw your electronic equipment into the trash. It’s ugly, and generally a waste of space. But luckily for us, it’s time to say goodbye to that mess. In what feels a bit like a holiday gift… Read More

  • Here, Star Wars, I Fixed Your ‘Force Awakens’ Lightsaber Crossguard For You

    Here, Star Wars, I Fixed Your ‘Force Awakens’ Lightsaber Crossguard For You

    The first Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer features all kinds of things that make my diehard Star Wars soul quiver and dance, but the crossguard on the dark side lightsaber spotted in the teaser, while initially cool, increasingly isn’t one of them. It looks ultimately very impractical, and I couldn’t help but to offer some engineering tips for the weapon’s designer. Read More

    Almost every tech hardware maker is basically racing smart watches out the door, but Sony is looking at how it can re-invent the basic timekeeping device itself with a new special project that was only just now revealed to be associated with the Japanese electronics giant, despite popping up on a crowdfunding site months ago. The so-called FES Watch, which uses e-paper for both the face and… Read More

  • The Black Friday Survival Guide

    The Black Friday Survival Guide

    It wasn’t easy accumulating the research data displayed in the following guide. I saw horrific sights working retail for seven long years in both a big box electronic store and a major shopping center. I saw things that will haunt me the rest of my days. I watched two kids get trampled by what I call Double-Wides because Circuit City clearanced-out Dreamcasts for $80 on Black Friday. Read More

    Gift Guide: The Razor Crazy Cart

    Cooling Tablet Market Turns To Low-End Devices For Growth

    Never in tech history have so many bought so much in such a short time.
