LEGO Ideas pop-up book opens door to 10 more years of fan-made sets

Animoodles Collection 2 adds 6 more characters to mix and match

Sony aibo Review (2018): Robot pup charm

Sony's aibo is back, and after more than a decade the robotic dog is smarter, more talented, and generally more adorable than ever. Now promising to be more lifelike and to tap into the potential of the cloud, aibo's 2018 return is a long way from the original, faintly-Terminator-esque robots that first introduced the name back in 1999.
