    Colette Fidget Spinners, Some Inspired by Marvel

    I’m a little bit too old to be fully aware of the whole fidget spinner trend, but a new line of fidget spinners from an unexpected place has definitely succeeded in catching my eye.

    Stan: The Car-Parking Robot from Stanley-Robotics (Video)

    I can’t imagine Sid from Seinfeld would approve of it, but robotics firm Stanley-Robotics has developed a robot that can actually park cars.

    The march of augmented reality technology marches one step closer to Samus Aran-style visors for every man, woman, and child with the unveiling of Google Lens. Basically, the idea behind Lens is very similar to the dear, departed Google Glass, but instead works with your smartphone camera as an addition to the Google Assistant and […]
