This lil gravity defying robot uses suction to achieve it’s vertical advantage, and can run for forty minutes on one charge. Look for this to be used in toys as well as in police and military equipment. And spies, totally 007 style!
This is a very cool concept, aimed at the DIY computer person. Here are the specs: Core 2 Duo T7600 CPU, 2GB of RAM, a 40GB notebook drive, and an Intel 945GT chipset supplying the audio visual muscle.

I met a guy in the UK who wanted some pics of Arizona… since I used to work outside, I had tons of pics of the desert. That’s right- before I was a blogger, I took care of trees for luxury home builders. I really liked the job at first, but I finally got sick and tired of it… but the work was pretty easy, and they gave me a lot of freedom, so I stuck around for a while anyway… then they gave me a horrid job- it included walking up the middle of a busy street in the AZ summer. It took an hour and a half to get from one side to the next, and I had to do that twice in a day. Not only was it hot enough to be deadly, I had to brave fast moving traffic as well. I quickly left the job, and found myself unemployed for some time. I actually could have had a job that was closer to home and paid a dollar more an hour after I quit, but I didn’t want to have to wake up at 4AM anymore. I eventually ended up where I am today.
