Wrex the Dawg had me laughing hysterically; he's a crazy canine, and a little unpredictable - but he makes a great companion. You see, he's been "hot-wired" from junkyard parts, and who knows what that can do to a pooch!

You can let Wrex roam on his own, just like a real dog. Except, of course, that he might malfunction -...

I am pleased to say that I am having much better luck using Rovio in the dark, taking advantage of this new kit for the Rovio.

There are many light modifications on the forums here, but many of them require opening the device which could potentially void your Rovio's warranty.  Here is a kit that I found that...

It's a bird, it's a plane... it's a Lightstar?  Cheesy, I know, but that's what you'll say to yourself the first time you fire up this innovative flying wing and see its colorful neon lights spinning in mid-air.  It's definitely very UFO-like, and while it's a simple flyer with only vertical movement, the Lightstar is a blast to fly and play...

One last CES video! Yahoo held a quick contest called Last Gadget Standing where they picked 10 gadgets and then had the vendors do quick 5 minute demo/presentations. The judging was done by audience applause. I missed that show - maybe that's why RS Media only came in 2nd! Here is the last 90 seconds of the presentation which was done...

If you're a regular on the RoboCommunity forums, you're familiar with my own love of airplanes and models in general.  I'm no expert, being relatively new to the hobby, but I love to fly stuff... simple as that!  As such, I'm one of FlyTech's biggest fans and have logged many hours of flight time with my Dragonfly,...

Here's a great introductory video to the Roboreptile. This is a pretty quick, entertaining video. I don't want to give it away so you'll have to watch the vid, but the videographer, who also runs the RobotsRule website, has a funny nickname for his Roboreptile.
