Predator wrist blade rehashed as functional replica

Predator wrist blade rehashed as functional replica

Man at Arms has released its latest video, and in it the team yet again recreated a from-a-movie weapon — in this case it was a Predator wrist blade. They're good sports about the whole process -- they have a "Predator" appear one day with a broken wrist blade and a request for it to be repaired. Thus begins the effort, which as always includes a lot of hammering, cutting, and fire (plus, you know, a healthy does of modern technology. The end product is, as we've come to expect, fully functional.

Samsung NX500 Review – the TARDIS of cameras

Samsung NX500 Review – the TARDIS of cameras

Is a bigger camera necessarily better? Or, put a different way, does a big sensor need to have a big body wrapped around it? Samsung would argue no, and the NX500 is its evidence. Distilling much of the NX1 into a form-factor only slightly larger than a point-and-shoot, it’s 28.2-megapixels of interchangeable lens camera with a 4K video recording bonus. Samsung can’t work miracles, mind, especially for $799 with a lens thrown in, and so there are some compromises to consider along the way.

Apple Watch Review – Controversially compelling

Apple Watch Review – Controversially compelling

To call the Apple Watch polarizing is to do the splenetic depths of online argument around it an injustice. For the past few weeks I’ve been living in the eye of that storm, the contentious wearable on my wrist. I’ve worked with it. I’ve traveled with it. I’ve exercised with it. I drew the line at showering with it, though Tim Cook says that’s okay too. And all along the way - well, perhaps not in the shower - people have asked me that one question no other Apple product has faced to quite the same extent: is the Apple Watch really worth it?

Cowboys vs. Dinosaurs movie revealed in new trailer

Cowboys vs. Dinosaurs movie revealed in new trailer

Perhaps we can blame Sharknado for the spike in ridiculous movies that don't go to too much effort hide their subpar production quality and overt tongue-in-cheek storylines. There's a dedicated fan base for such movies, and if you count yourself among them then you'll be glad to know there's yet another film of that sorts in the works: it's called Cowboys vs. Dinosaurs, and it is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. The film will be starring, among other, Eric Roberts.

Little boy finds big dinosaur fossil under future mall

Little boy finds big dinosaur fossil under future mall

The son of a zookeeper, Wylie Brys, discovered no less than a 100-million year old dinosaur bone whilst digging in the dirt this past September. The report is coming out now because between September 2014 and now, April of 2015, preparations have been underway to excavate and remove the fossil. Excavation took place over the past two days and the bone - or bones, as it turned out - were removed just today. The finding began back in September when Brys and his father were digging for fish bones in the area where a mall was set to be built.

Amazon Echo adds Hue and WeMo smart home voice control

Amazon Echo adds Hue and WeMo smart home voice control

Amazon Echo is digging its voice-controlled fingers deeper into the smart home, with Amazon adding Philips Hue and Belkin WeMo support to the always-listening home assistant. The new functionality, pushed out to Echo units from today, allows owners to control their lighting, smart appliances, and switches using simple voice commands rather than reaching for the respective apps, and could well be the most useful additions Echo has seen since it began shipping in limited numbers late last year.

Hack lets you run Linux kernel on Canon EOS DSLRs

Hack lets you run Linux kernel on Canon EOS DSLRs

Of the well known operating systems in the world, Linux has had the distinct reputation of being installed almost anywhere there is a processor to be found. Of course, just because you can, doesn't mean you should, but running Linux on any computer possible has always been an exercise in skill and a cause for bragging. While Canon's digital cameras are not exactly as esoteric as refrigerators and washing machines, getting Linux to run on these more often than not very closed devices can open up a world of possibilities.

First lawsuits against FCC’s net neutrality are filed

First lawsuits against FCC’s net neutrality are filed

The FCC just announced its ruling on net neutrality last month, and lawsuits are hitting the agency right off the bat. The FCC declared that the Internet is a utility, which allows the government to regulate it. As such, the FCC created net neutrality rules which treat all web traffic equally. Well, no one likes being told what to do, especially by the government. The telecom industry is up in arms over the FCC's net neutrality ruling, and now the lawsuits are beginning to trickle in. These lawsuits are part of an industry-wide effort to overturn what private companies believe are the FCC's unlawful regulations.

Bulgari Diagono Magnesium watch focuses on security

Bulgari Diagono Magnesium watch focuses on security

This year's BaselWorld in Switzerland has become the stage for many companies, watch makers or otherwise, to reveal their own take on the idea of smart devices on your wrist. Some have completely jumped on the smartwatch bandwagon while other cautiously remain on the periphery, like the new Swiss Horological Smartwatch group and their MotionX activity tracker platform. Jeweler Bulgari is making yet another twist, calling its concept device not a smartwatch but an "intelligent watch", one that practically keeps a safety vault on your wrist instead.
