Boston Dynamics – SpotMini

June 24th, 2016

Boston Dynamics has further cemented the eventuality that they’re the Cyberdyne Systems of the real world with the SpotMini. Soon these things will be wearing camouflage overlays that make them virtually-indistinguishable from real dogs, and they’ll serve as the perfect surprise attack wave of the eventual AI takeover.

Titanfall 2 Gameplay

June 23rd, 2016

Some b-roll of the footage from the E3 trailer for Titanfall 2 has surfaced, mixed in with a bit of never-before-seen gameplay. It looks like an improvement over the first one, which was, in all honesty, a pretty fun game. I’m pretty eager about this one.

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back Trailer

June 22nd, 2016

Tom Cruise may be too short to accurately play Jack Reacher (as described in the novels), but he was badass in the first film, and I bet he’ll be badass in this one.

Sammy Davis Jr. – Bang! Bang!

Robin and The 7 Hoods is playing on the tube, so it seems like a good reason to share one of the best numbers in the film.

Operator Cash

June 17th, 2016

Operator Franklin

Images of US currency altered to make Alexander Hamilton, Ulysses S. Grant, and Benjamin Franklin into bonafide, pipehitting oper8ors have surfaced on the interwebz recently. They are the work of Sergiy Lysenko of Beserker Airsoft, who is clearly a very talented individual when it comes to defacing legal US tender.

Check out the Beserker Airsoft Facebook page for the other two bills, and to see some awesome airsoft stuff to boot: www.facebook.com/berserker.airsoft

DIY Airsoft Machine Gun

June 16th, 2016

YouTuber NightHawkInLight‘s DIY Airsoft gun wouldn’t be practical (or legal) on a field, but 5000+ RPM certainty is impressive.

Deluxe Edition Bluetooth Pip-Boy

June 13th, 2016

iuso_fallout_4_bluetooth_pipboy

So you missed out on your chance to get one of the very limited Pip-Boy editions of Fallout 4 when they came out, but you really wanted one, and by “one”, I mean a wearable Pip-Boy that doubled as an iPhone case. Well, a while ago, ThinkGeek announced that they had the exclusive rights to sell future replicas of the Pip-Boy, and they’re finally delivering on that license, with the upcoming Deluxe Edition Bluetooth Pip-Boy.

It’s worth noting that this Pip-Boy isn’t a glorified phone case like the one that came with the game is, but is actually a self-contained unit with a functioning “Cosplay mode” with status, special, and perks screens; an alarm clock function; and SMS messaging, phone, and audio streaming when connected via Bluetooth to your phone.

The Deluxe Pip-Boy is poised to release November of this year, and has a listed price of $350.

Black Panther Warrior Pack

June 10th, 2016

pTRU1-23180228enh-z6

As part of the massive line of ‘Civil War’ toys and memorabilia, Hasbro released the Black Panther Warrior Pack, a costume set which consists of a Black Panther mask and gloves. We’ve played with them a bit, and although the set make you look pretty darn cool (as one of the Three Amigos as pictured below will show you), it doesn’t allow you to effortless fight with sweet acrobatic moves, nor do the gloves make large gashes in nigh-indestructible metals.

You can pick it up from several retailers and online stores, including Toys-R-Us.

Cabot Guns – Meteorite Pistols

June 8th, 2016

42

Cabot Guns’ Big Bang Pistol Set, also known as the Meteorite Pistols (insert some play on words about ‘Space-Age Materials’) are a unique set of two 1911s. They were made from an iron-nickel alloy obtained from a meteorite that crashed into what is now Gibeon, Namibia, billions of years ago. Reportedly, the pistols are valued at approximately $5 million, although it remains to be seen wether anyone is willing to pay that much for them.

You can find out more about the pistols at cabotgun.com

Thingiverse user AprilStorm has produced a 3D-printer-friendly version of Boba Fett’s EE-3 Carbine Blaster Rifle from the Star Wars series. It was designed principally to be used for prop use by charitable organizations such as the 501st, however it’s also under Creative Commons non-commercial license, so as long as you give credit where credit is due (and don’t mind assembling the components), you can print out the design yourself.

Frazetta and RMJ Tactical – Death Dealer Battle Axe

June 5th, 2016

Artist Frank Frazetta created an iconic image in “Death Dealer” a mounted, axe wielding berserker, set on destruction. So iconic that the US Army’s III Corps adopted the image as its mascot back in the 80s. RMJ Tactical is now poised to release a life size version of Death Dealer’s famous axe.

Coming soon!

NERF Terrascout

June 4th, 2016

Terrascout

NERF is upping the coolness factor of their N-Strike Elite series with the addition of the upcoming Terrascout RC Drone. The Terracout is a blaster drone that features a 720p video camera, which can be controlled via an included remote; the remote features an integrated LCD screen for live viewing.

The drone itself comes complete with an 18-dart mag/clip, which it fires full-automatic, and is compatible with NERF N-Strike barrel extensions. It is also capable of traveling on (mostly) all terrain via its tank-like treads.

The Terrascout won’t be released until this Fall, and it’s projected MSRP is $200, which is heavy for anything NERF related. It also features a hi-def on-board camera and is remote controlled, so the price is understandable.

I’m really looking forward to this one.
