Boba Fett's own personal lowrider Slave 1 was made available as a 1,000-piece LEGO set at last.

Shopping in AR: A look into retail’s future

Visitors at Fitzrovia in London were surprised by a store that contained little more than a big Snapchat logo.

This morning Xiaomi brought a few products to the USA to showcase the future. Xiaomi brought three products that'll be available for sale in the USA, and a few more that aren't (yet) available in the USA.
