The 404 goes Back to the Future with the Mattel hoverboard Video
This week, Donald's back in the studio, joined by Eric Franklin and Dong Ngo from CNET Labs. We ponder Japan's plans to turn the moon into a playground for robots, and tackle OLED displays that roll and vanish. Dong drops some knowledge on recent hard drive innovations and a waterproof case for his Flip Ultra HD. The iPad meets Velcro. And the hoverboard makes a comeback (kinda).
There's so much to do on today's episode of The 404 Podcast that I'm surprised we were able to fit it all into half an hour--we've got 404 listener Leopold's take on our theme song, Back to the Future/The 404 mash up fan art, and a prize giveaway courtesy of Otterbox!
The 404 goes behind the scenes at the future of motion pictures: 4D movie theaters! Would you pay $8 for a movie replete with back ticklers, flashing lights, smoke bombs, moving seats, and curated odors? This plus 3D drug printers, Amazon warehouse bandits, and a mystery package on today's show!
This week on Crave, we're back with a look at all the Cravey stuff we spotted at CES 2013. Plus, Canadian astronaut Christopher Hadfield teaches us the safest way to clip our nails in outer space, and the Hal 9000 computer replica from Think Geek refuses to cooperate.
Mattel's Mindflex is a game that allows you to move objects with your brain.
In a CNET Conversation, Nokia's EVP discusses the future of the two operating systems.
More on router firmware, EL, wiring robots, wardriving, data sanitizing, and your ideas for future episodes: growing pot, building lightsaber replicas, and DIY headphone amps!
Donald and Eric take a trip back through time, or maybe to an alternate Jules Verne-inspired future. Wherever we are, the gadgets are distinctly retro and lovingly hacked together. Even old Jedi master Yoda seems a little different.
The 2013 Beetle is still a trip back in time, but it's no longer that far back.
Turns out when we blew up the Moon a few weeks ago we found water! Yay the bottled water companies are presumably planning their trips now. THIS is how we motivate us to get back to the Moon! We also hear more from old man Murdoch on blocking Google from indexing his newspapers, and Dell launches a smart phone. Does anybody want it?
