This one tickles my fancy. It’s not new, but resurfaced on twitter recently. Check out skyscraper Pong in Philadelphia, on the city’s Cira Centre, to mark the start of Philly Tech Week 2013.
For me, the classic Robert Downey Jnr film is always Going to be Tropic Thunder, but I hear Iron Man has a few fans and has been quite popular in the cinematic showrooms over recent years…
An electric hammer. Isn’t that a good idea?
I missed this one from the summer, but New Scientist's Sandrine Ceurstemont has highlighted the interesting Icarus Cup, featuring races between human-powered aircraft. Apparently the hope is to turn the activity into a new extreme sport.
This one caught my eye over the weekend, in the Daily Telegraph. Is anyone going to Nantes over the summer? If so, check out the La Galerie des Machines, it sounded very interesting.
We don't do April Fools on Electronics Weekly but if we did... I hope it would be like this! Wired.com flagged this effort from last year - a "PolyTheremin" from Moog - and it's well worth sharing.
Another classic to read and mentally digest. An alternative look at the electromagnetic spectrum.
Fancy climbing on board this unique machine - and travelling at almost 20mph - powered by electric screwdrivers?! That is, two Bosch 18-volt-screwdrivers, to be precise.
This one is a bit creepy, but what a great title for a blog - A boy's own guide to building a giant creepy eyeball that follows you round the room
This one made me smile. Apparently, there is a whole genre of Pong clocks. This one, called the Wise Clock, is apparently one of the better ones, with realistic paddle movements!
