Living with a disability isn't easy for anyone, and it can be downright depressing for a kid who is bursting with energy and loaded with ambition. Fortunately, there do exist people out there who want to make sure those living with disabilities are able to more easily deal with them, and in the case of startup Open Bionics, its goal is to make sure kids can actually make some fun out of it. Soon, kids requiring prosthetics will be able to get some very interesting designs. Open Bionics has teamed up with The Walt Disney Company to let kids sport designs modeled after Iron Man, Elsa, and even Star... Read more...
Is that a robot in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me? We’ve seen some crazy contraption come out of Japan over the years, but this is one of the cutest and most intriguing products that has come across our news desk. The gadget in question is called the RoboHon, and at first glance it looks like a friendly little robot — and you wouldn’t be wrong to make such an assumption. But RoboHon, which is manufactured by Sharp, has a whole gaggle of tricks up its sleeve including the ability to walk, stand up, sit down, and even dance. RoboHon is also incredibly “intelligent” with the capacity... Read more...
The minimum and recommended system specs for Star Wars Battlefront are out today. If your PC is getting a little long in the tooth, it’s a good idea to check them out. EA’s upcoming games looks killer so far, and if your friends aren’t already talking about it, they will be soon. We’ll start with the minimum recommended specifications first.

We learned late last week that the beta launch for the hugely anticipated Star Wars Battlefront will drop on October 8. That means just one thing: both AMD and NVIDIA have scrambled to get their engineering teams to churn out optimized drivers. As it so happens, AMD is the first out the door with one. This isn't a huge surprise, though, as the company seems to be keeping well in tune with the game's developers. This past summer, during the company's Fury family reveal, it helped wrap the event up with an exclusive trailer for Battlefront. I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if AMD announced a...

We’re reaching the home stretch in our wait for EA’s Star Wars Battlefront, which looks like it could be one of the best Star Wars games in recent memory. (That is, so long as it doesn’t suffer the miserable launches we’ve seen other blockbusters endure.) After teasing us with promises of an open Beta, the company has finally announced the date that Beta will begin: October 8th. The Beta will run from October 8th to the 12th, after which we’ll all be back to impatiently waiting for the official launch of the game, which is set for November 17th. The Beta will have three missions, each of which... Read more...
The incredibly hyped Star Wars Battlefront is set to release on November 17 in North America, which by all accounts isn't far off at all. So it's with much anticipation that fans of the series - those who've been praying for this game to become a reality since the release of Battlefront II in 2005 - are awaiting news of a beta. Well, that wait is now over. Well... kind of. There's still a bit of information missing. Namely, the fact that EA can't give us an exact launch date for the beta. But, there is something to look forward to: when it does land, it's going to be available for the PlayStation... Read more...
If the Force is strong in your bank account and you're looking for a new timepiece, luxury design firm Devon Works has come up with a limited edition watch that's more advanced than the Death Star.

Here’s a dose of ”Rebel” goodness to tide you over while you wait for the next Star Wars trailer. A drone enthusiast in France recently graced YouTube with a few videos of a self-built quadcopter with a shell designed to look like the Millennium Falcon.
