You remember us talking about Ietef Vita aka DJ CAVEM on here, right? Well, the O.G. (Organic Gardener) is back with some more real talk… and granted, a bit of product promotion, in a dope visual presentation. Beautiful! In many ways. Just press play. You’ll see.
Produced by DJ CAVEM and Sticman of Dead Prez.
Maaan, they keep making these robots better, stronger, faster, more flexible and agile and… you get the picture. But maybe these bot makers don’t ‘get the picture’ – the Skynet-Schwarznegger-Terminator, science-NONfiction horror picture. Then again, Boston Dynamics CEO Marc Raibert has been quoted as saying, “This is the debut presentation of what I think will be a nightmare-inducing robot.” So, maybe they do get it.
Handle is a research robot that stands 6.5 ft tall, travels at 9 mph and jumps 4 feet vertically. It uses electric power to operate both electric and hydraulic actuators, with a range of about 15 miles on one battery charge. Handle uses many of the same dynamics, balance and mobile manipulation principles found in the quadruped and biped robots we build, but with only about 10 actuated joints, it is significantly less complex. Wheels are efficient on flat surfaces while legs can go almost anywhere: by combining wheels and legs Handle can have the best of both worlds.

Oh… Handle is a research bot. Because all kinds of researchers need a 6.5-foot tall jumper with a four foot vertical (right, all kinds of NBA researchers). Oooo–kaaay. They must think we fell off the back of the turnip truck and it backed over our heads right after that!
(Not saying it’s not cool tech though.)
It’s a Star Trek-style dream, but one that’s inching closer to reality.
See? Like Star Trek’s Universal Translator tech. Another nerd fantasy come to life right here. Give it another year, and it’s likely you will want one in your ear. To be certain, you’ll still want to learn the languages and nuances of those from foreign lands with whom you want to communicate… BUT… this Pilot Earpiece from Waverly Labs though: futuristic science fiction becomes science FACT! This Earpiece can translate a conversation between two native speakers of different languages in real time. See how above. Read more by clicking the link below.
In a word, three words: Championship. The pinnacle of achievement in a competitve endeavor. To symbolize and celebrate the against-all-odds achievement of King James and his Cavaliers, Baron Championship Rings (another three words) crafted the Cavs’ 2016 NBA Championship ring.
Until now, you probably thought about the ring for the five seconds you ogled it. Now you will see how much goes into one of these things.
Damn. Anybody still hanging on to the old school video games? Who got Tecmo Super Bowl skills? You KNOW the Houston Oilers vs. anybody-who-wanna-get-whupped can happen, right? Heee… I’m just playing… but so not (who ya got). Old schooool game fam!
But nah. This game is NOT that. Tom Clancy storytelling stylings gone wilding in this ‘Ghost Recon Wildlands’ game. And peep, above; that’s just a TRAILER!
Can we have nice things? Why do we always HAVE to be thinking about how to ‘save the planet’ man? Why does it always have to be about the environment? And you know going green costs hella money, right?
NO! It is costing less and less to go green, and we are not even talking about the cost SAVINGS you get from making the switch (e.g. lower utility bills). Case in point: Peep this vid about the possibilites for a roof of solar panels… cheaper AND nicer than what most folks live under now.
Oh… and you are not really ‘saving’ the Earth either way. Earth means ‘rocks and dirt.’ It will be here whether we try to save it or not. We are talking about our SURVIVAL as a species. No environment, no life on Earth.
(Life. It’s the nicest thing to have. Now, play the video.)
Nike’s new shoe magically adapts to your foot.
Posted by WIRED on Tuesday, 20 September 2016
Duuuude! I was on some Phresher (waitWAITwait a minute) when I watched this. So we did not get the “Back To The Future” hoverboard like we were supposed to by now, but aren’t these the shoes from the movies? Wow!
Nike’s new shoe magically adapts to your foot.
Ooookay. VICE’s Karley Sciortino is taking girls “playing with dolls” to a whole other level! Getting mighty cozy with the concept in this documentary episode exploring the making of male sex dolls for women.
Because, you know, gender equality.
(Hahaa! Karley, though. Got an undeniable sexy about her, right? Just saying, she probably does not need to go the doll route. Surely there is a real ‘plaything’ out here that will gladly play with her… Errr… Just watch.)
Check out what going ‘Beastmode’ will mean to the future of travel. This Beast is a conceptual hoverbike, but wow, what a concept! Looking like part Tron, part Star Wars. All the way dope futuristic ride!
Check out a video compilation of hoverbikes of 2016 after the jump.
DJ Khaled Speaks On Staying Focused, How ‘They Block’ And More On ‘The Late Show’ With Stephen Colbert (Video)
Definitely gotta bless up. Grammy-nom, NY Times Best Seller, father, producer, restaurateur, motivator, Snapchat phenom… and now formulator of a special ‘cocoa butter’… They Block! You must watch this to understand man. There is just no way to hate on DJ Khaled. Why even try? Check out his sit-down with Stephen Colbert above. Nice!
The music mogul, fresh off his latest GRAMMY nomination, takes Stephen through the success tips in his bestselling book ‘The Keys.’
Apparently, LG is coming with a TV as thin as a credit card. Wowwww, now that’s a neato cool toy! Maybe one we can roll up and stuff in a stocking. Got to imagine they will be hella expensive. But not if you got it playa. Haaa!
I don’t. I’m saying if YOU got it.
I was surprised at the amount of vitriol ($10 word for ‘hateration’ – word value to be determined) being spewed on the comments where I found this clip. Guess we can’t have nice things… without spiteful things being said about them. Aaaanywaayyys, it’s cool leisure tech candy to at least look at (sweet). Plus it is lightweight and magnetically mounted to a wall. So moving days would be a bit easier on the back. I wonder how that next argument over what to watch might go though…
(Look… we ain’t watching ‘Scandalicious’ or ‘House Chickens Of Gotham City’ tonight… Think we are? Oh yeah?? Well, just keeping thinking that. Meanwhile, I’m gonna watch ‘Arrow’ in the other room… AND I’M TAKING THE TV!)
Wow. When the director calls out “throw” to camera 3… well, now the cameraperson will need some further clarification… Because GoPro, that’s why! Watch the clip above: You can aim, throw and shoot this GoPro (as many times as needed) to get the perfect aerial shot. Whyyyyy are we not filming touchdown receptions with a ‘football cam’ yet? Get on that GoPro. ASAP. And get Cam Newton to speak on it (Cam’s Aerial Cam, Air Cam Cam, ThrowPro…something more catchy).
Hey! What about a dodgeball cam?? Imagine commentating someone getting BLASTED in the face, huevos, guts, glutes or somewhere sensitive (yet hilarious) from the ‘incoming!’ point of view. Could be some fun tech! And you can invest in it via the link below.
KICKSTARTER: WITH AER, YOU CAN THROW YOUR GOPRO!
$500 a pound? How did 2 Chainz not try this as The Most Expensivest cheese? But the $500 tag…not the standout fact about this cheese. It’s what it’s made of: not goat or cow milk. Naaah, son. DONKEY milk!
At the Zasavica Special Nature Reserve in Serbia, Slobodan Simić creates the world’s most expensive cheese with milk from his herd of donkeys. Donkeys only produce a tiny amount of milk, so that—coupled with the fact that Slobodan is the only one with the recipe—means that his cheese goes for around $500 dollars per pound.
So… ASS cheese. Is that’s what’s hot in these streets? When you get your paper way up, you can have donkey cheese on that expensive ass burger. Ha!!
Sort of like the cycle in the Batman movies. Although that self-balancing function probably cannot ‘guarantee’ no crashes. There are some crazy riders out there that might put that feature to the ultimate test if & when this cycle comes out. Pretty sweet looking toy though.
BMW has released their next concept vehicle in the Vision 100 series, and it’s a motorcycle. The Motorrad is sleek, self-balances and comes with augmented reality goggles.
This line of Mary Jane Wines though… wooo… the promise of a glass of high-class high. Some conjecture as to whether the hemp-infused wine will actually make you flyyyy robinnn flyyyy, but the prospect is fun to consider, isn’t it. Check it out and see if it’s something you and your friends can go five on.
(Normally the ‘Mary Jane’ comes in a sack, right? So, would this come in some kind of Crown Royal bag? Some folks transport in that… we’ve heard *wink*)
Now this looks like some action movie spy, James Bond, futuristic stuff! The Bionic Bird looks as much like a living bird that you would not give a second look. Watch this video of it flying above the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz. Seems easy to launch, easy to use. Check it out.
Don’t tell me that tech is wimpy or that futurism is ‘nerdy.’ Well, you can but eff what you say… I will be too busy riding out in my sick futuristic whip, the BladeGlider!
Nissan has introduced its idea of the future of sports cars. The Nissan BladeGlider is impossibly thin, because only the driver’s seat is in front. The new design is much more aerodynamic, and the electric engine gives off zero emissions.

Dope AND great for the environment. Science!
“Reminds me of something that Q would give James Bond…”
– Chelsea Miller
See? Movie references like that, plus that sexy lisp, plus her being sexy & THICK (in that fitted black dress…LAWDY) gets me. Okay, Chelsea Miller, what’s up? Hollering. Oh, you’re doing an #AllGoodThings unboxing video for the JooVuu mini car camera? Ha! I got caught up. You got me. Not even mad. And I’m REALLY not even mad at that striped swimsuit on your Instagram
