This video features several flavors of awesome- too many to list in a single blog post title. First, it features Adam and Jaime from Mythbusters. Next, we are introduced to the newest addition to my Xmas wish list- a remote controlled, paintball gun wielding robotic arm. We get to watch it slowly paint a smiley face. Robots armed with paintball guns- 1, emoticons- 0. As if that wasn’t enough awesome to rock you into a coma, we are then introduced to the behemoth- a paintball cannon that launches 1,100 paintballs in order to paint the Mona Lisa instantaneously. Be sure to hang out until the end when we are treated to a slow mo replay of the mega cannon in action.
The Space Cube is a tiny computer that is about the size of an apple. The size of this thing is it’s only impressive feature, so get ready for the bad news… This computer delivers a whopping 300 megahertz of processing power, 64 MB of ram and a 16megabytes of storage. The operating system s sits on a separate 1 gig flash drive. As if that’s not bad enough, the price tag is $2800.
It’s no secret that I enjoy video games. Almost every day, I log several hours of gameplay on my xbox360. I’ve completely worn out the controller that came with my xbox 360, and the little thumbstick bumps on my newest controller were worn smooth within weeks.
This is why I hunted down this product called Caps4Stix.
The Caps4Stix thumbstick covers that I order arrived within one week, and cost me about five dollars after shipping. I was pleased with both the price of the product and the speedy delivery.
I have been using this product for about a month now. The product itself works just as the manufacturers website describes: it is easy to install, and once installed, you’ll find that your thumbs stick to your controller like never before! There are twice as many rubber bumps, and they are many times larger than the original bumps. This forms a cradle for your thumb. The material used is stickier, too- I find that even during the sweatiest gaming sessions, my thumbs are glued to the controllers.
To order this product, you can either email the manufacturer from their website, or find their products on ebay.
