    Knocki turns any surface into a switch

    What happens when you mix two software dudes, a little kid, and a light switch? You get the Knocki, a clever little device that connects to a wall or under a table. You can tap the surface to trigger events – turning on a light, muting speakers, etc. – and it is surprisingly small and easily-hidden. The founders are Ohad Nezer and Jake Boshernitzan, both of Houston… Read More

  • Wall-E robot from Disney up for pre-order

    Holy snikes! This Wall-E movie has all the critics gushing, and for good reason. It’s a movie about a robot in the future. That has two thumbs up written all over it.

Too bad the GameCube had so… Read More
