Star Wars Rogue One Toys Review : Action Figures #GoRogue

Today we've got our hands on a number of Star Wars Rogue One toys before they're released - and we're going to share the lot up close and personal. We've got a couple of Black Series action figures, a couple of slightly heavier-duty action figures in the Elite Series from the Disney Store, a couple of Hasbro 2-packs (complete with super-absurd mega-weapons), and some JAKKS Big-Figs to crown the massiveness of this collection off. And, as no modern collection of Star Wars figures would be complete without, we've got a couple of brand new Funko Pop vinyl bobblehead figures as well, all from Rogue One.

Challenergy shows off typhoon-proof wind turbine

Challenergy shows off typhoon-proof wind turbine

For many years, Japan thought that its energy needs moving into the future would be provided by nuclear power plants. When a typhoon hit in 2013 and led to the meltdown of the Fukushima Daiichi power plant plans had to change. The problem for Japan is that normal wind turbines can’t withstand the forces of typhoon-class winds and the country has been hit with six typhoons in 2016. Normal wind turbines that we see in the US and Europe with propellers similar to aircraft can't survive the high winds of a typhoon, but the new design from Challenergy can.

Famicom Mini is Japan’s NES Classic version

Famicom Mini is Japan’s NES Classic version

To those unfamiliar with gaming history, Nintendo actually had two very different versions of its “Nintendo Entertainment System”, depending on which side of the globe you lived in. In Japan and nearby territories, the company’s hit console was called the “Family Computer”, lovingly referred to as the “Famicom”. In the West, it went by the now standard “NES”. So when Nintendo announced the coming arrival of the miniaturized NES Classic, it was only fitting that it would launch a throwback exclusive to its roots. And thus, the Famicom mini was born.

E FUN Nextbook Ares 11 brings Android to 2-in-1 tablet form

E FUN Nextbook Ares 11 brings Android to 2-in-1 tablet form

Android tablets aren’t making headlines as much as they used to, save for a few rather eccentric ones like the Lenovo Yoga Book. That, however, isn’t stopping manufacturer E FUN from putting out yet another Android tablet for this year. Like the company’s other Nextbook devices, this is a 2-in-1 tablet/laptop hybrid with a detachable keyboard, in the vein of the ASUS Transformer. Curiously enough, E FUN spends much if its time talking about why you should opt for an Android tablet rather than talking about the tablet itself.

That’s because the Lexus UX Concept, both inside and out, feels like car straight out of a comic book, or a movie tie-in even.
