We went out on the CES show floor to find the clickfree Wireless Backup and all of its wireless backing-up power. Coming in two versions -- 500GB or optional 1TB capacities -- the Wireless Backup seems to be a fully capable backup option, competing with other wireless solutions like the Apple Time ...

Demonstrated at the Wireless Technology Park 2010 exhibition last week, this automatic email generator from NTT DoCoMo promises to take just three words' worth of input, whether spoken or typed in, and convert them into a fully fleshed out, anatomically correct email. An anthropomorphic genie creat...

Unless they're incredibly quiet or potentially explosive, you won't find us waxing poetic (or even prosaic) about leaf blowers. But if a company that produced leaf blowers made a motorized calendar that tore off its own pages? We'd tell you about that in a heartbeat -- even if the wonderfully waste...

Judging by the comparative explosion of robo vacuum releases this month, you might think 2010 is all set to be the year of the automated floor sanitizer. Augmenting that impression is ASUS, who has now made its heavyweight presence known with the newly announced ECleaner, to be released under the A...

We know, we know -- the original Roomba saves children from peril, plays real-life Pacman, and steals its owners' hearts away, but let's give LG's refreshed autonomous robovac a chance, shall we? Now equipped with two cameras (claimed to be an industry first) and lowering operational noise to a mor...

Imation was set to announce its first-ever Wireless USB hard drive a year ago, but it lost a dear friend shortly before it materialized and we'd heard nothing since then. Today Imation has returned -- holding hands with its new partner, Staccato -- to release the Pro WX 1.5 terabyte Wireless USB ha...

It's been months since the e-fad of creating automated levels in Super Mario World to the tune of popular Anime soundtracks surfaced -- normally, that's much longer than the lifespan of most internet memes. However, this post-mortem contribution to the Mario-on-rails movement caught our attention (...

Lets face it, no matter how many tools, USB sticks or discs we have, calibrating an HDTV properly is simply beyond most consumers, even if they understand why it would be a good idea. Those are the people targeted by THX and Portrait Displays new partnership, allowing content creators to use THX Med...

When we collected videos of Super Mario World levels that played themselves a few weeks back, we figured nothing could be more impressive. We were proven wrong when we stumbled across the below videos. Not only do these Mario World levels complete themselves without player input, but they also manag...

These fan-created Super Mario World levels are Rube Goldberg machines made from Mario mechanics. With a few exceptions (involving holding the down button or holding onto a shell in a few cases), every level plays itself out, propelling Mario safely through with a baroque arrangement of bumpers, pl...

When we first saw the video of a hacked Super Mario World level that could be completed without touching the controller, we figured it was a fluke -- the fevered creation of a singular obsessed mind, never to be duplicated. We were wrong. A bit of digging has turned up at least ten more examples of ...

While it certainly looked about perfect to us, we know how picky engineering inventors can be, so it's not too surprising to see the folks behind the automatic waffle maker crank out a version 2.0. We can't be sure, but the video (shown after the jump) does seem to suggest that the newest iteration ...
