Star Wars Holochess creator Kickstarts monster-fighting game

One of the things that makes me love the original Star Wars movies is the sheer amount of detail in them. The places you visit feel like they could really exist, and have really been lived in. One scene that always stood out for me was when R2-D2 and Chewie play Holochess. It's not vital to the plot, and the game doesn't make another appearance until The Force Awakens. However, it gives us an idea of what people do for fun in the Star Wars universe, and allows for a bit of character development.

The CST-01, the “world’s thinnest watch,” has seemingly been dead in the water since last summer when the company behind it, Central Standard Timing, posted their last update declaring that Flextronics had decided to back away from the project.

GeoOrbital Wheel adds an electric motor to your bike in 60 seconds

I enjoy riding my bike around town. I don't do it often enough, but when I do, it's nice to be able to travel around, get some breeze in my face, and just enjoy being outside.

PolySmooth PVB and Polysher make shiny 3D printed objects

When you 3D print an item most folks expect something made in a plastic material to be shiny and perfect like something you would pick up at a store.

The people behind the PolySmooth PVB filament say that the new filament to be used in the print process is the core of their technology.
