To the Babymobile!

Researchers from Ithaca College have recently created a motorized baby chair for babies who suffer from disabilities which keep them from crawling. The motorized chair lets its infant navigate using the Wii Balance Board thru thr baby's natural proclivity to reach for things they want, which registers on the Balance Board and steers the device.

Air Hogs has finally released the Air Hog Hawk Eye. Those who are familar with Air Hogs know they are know for their RC mini helicopters. The Hawk Eye is a step up from the regular RC choppper. It boasts a camera that can take video and photos that you can download later when you land. I wonder when they are going to release one with real time video. Now that would be something I would want...

Is that a Rod in your pocket?

I never did like Rodimus Prime, always thought he was kind of gay... NOT THAT THERE IS ANYTHING WRONG WITH THAT! Rodimus Prime is the latest iteration of the Masterpiece collection - MP-09. It appears he is highly detailed with the trailer opening up into the twin cannons just like the cartoon. Too bad the matrix is not included in this Prime like Optimus.

You can view more pics here.

You can pre-order your Rodimus here. It is expected to arrive first quarter of 2011.

I'm back!

Finally, I've escaped the Bermuda Triangle after being stranded in Cybertron limbo for four forsaken years. I've lost about a hundred pounds and have developed a huge obsession for coconut cream pies... Getting back home I found out only did the Triangle robbed me for four years, it also robbed my memory that contains the password to my original blog http://robotsumi.blogspot.com/. Being the stubborn chinaman that I am I followed the instructions from Blogger to recover my password but they email my password to an email address that I didn't even know existed! After bashing my head on the wall sixteen times I gave up and decided to start a new one. So without further adieu and in the immortal words of John Mccain - Yippee-Kai-Yay Motherf*cker!!!
