EnLighten app from BMW shows you how long the light will stay red

All drivers can relate to the annoyance of a stop light that stays red way longer than you feel like it should. We naturally progress from annoyance at when the light will change to some level of being convinced that the light has stopped working correctly and we will never get to go.

This Lego robot is controlled with a Lego exosuit

Now here's a Lego creation that's impressive! A humanoid robot with arms and legs is controlled with a wearable Lego exoskeleton. It should be obvious by now that this isn't an official upcoming kit from the Danish toy maker, but rather a DIY project from engineer Danny Benedettelli. The setup is powered by an Arduino hobbyist board, and the exosuit wearer is able to send commands from several feet away. When the suit's arms move, the robot's follow the same motion.

Sony’s US online store closing up shop August 28

Perhaps omens and portents of things to come, Sony has just announced that its online store in the US will be practically closing on the 28th of August.

Iron Man invades not your screen but your GTA V game

Iron Man invades not your screen but your GTA V game

GTA V just got a bit more Marvelous, so to speak. And at least unofficially. That is, only if you have a PC copy of the game. Carrying on the venerable tradition of modifying, or modding, just PC games, Brazilian coder extraordinaire JulioNB included something, or someone, in the latest installment of Grand Theft Auto that you wouldn't normally find on the streets. Not unless you're in Marvel's world, of course. Yes, the Iron Man has come to San Andreas and, unlike (or very much like), the comic book superhero, he's in a very destructive mood.
