Darren Moser, a costume and prop builder and fan of Star Wars, decided to bring K-2SO to life. He has been making a 1:1 scale replica of the droid and just this past Friday moved on to the torso. Ultimately, Moser wants the replica to be a fully functional puppet with working joints. You can follow
When most people think of drones they usually imagine a big, scary, four-armed miniature helicopter. However, drone makers in 2016 have introduced smaller and more portable quad-copters, like the GoPro Karma and Yuneec Breeze. Now DJI is introducing its smallest, smartest and most approachable drone yet, the Mavic Pro. With the ability to fold

When you need to charge your electronic devices on the go, it can be a hassle trying to find somewhere to plug in. And though some devices can already be charged without wires, researchers at The Walt Disney Company have recently supersized the technology by building a wireless "charging room." Scientists at a branch
A small robotic arm can bring your digital sketches to life, by re-creating your on-screen drawings with a pen and paper. The robotic drawing arm was designed by a team of researchers, who combined their knowledge of kinetic art, drawing machines and internet-connected microprocessor chips to develop the idea. The arm, dubbed Line-us, mimics
Intricate glass creations such as miniature castles and tiny pretzels can now be fabricated using 3D printing, according to a new study. The technique could one day be used to manufacture lenses for smartphone cameras as well as other key glass components, researchers said. Archaeological research suggests humans have employed glassmaking for millennia. The
