The Android mascot certainly gets around, there's no doubt about that -- but did you know it can also get down? Watch and learn.

We do hate to play into wily PR folks' attention-grabbing campaigns, but when they're quite so nutty, we can't help but admire them. UK network Three is trying to promote its hotspots (we think) by having dudes wearing full-body underwear running around with \"Human Hotspot\" signs and what looks lik

This year's Tokyo Game Show is naturally full of people in interesting costumes, but there was just... something about this Mega Man that caught our eye, making him stand out from the sea of similarly giant-headed mascots.

Sony Ericsson's booth at IFA this year includes an Xperia-themed chopper that you can sit on and have your picture taken -- with a Sony Ericsson cameraphone, of course. As of press time, no word on when it'll be updated to use unleaded gasoline. Chris: \"It'll be available at local dealers mere mom

One does what one must to keep oneself up with the times.

Bus. Ice cream truck. Personal space invader. Vessel of illicit speaker transport. It's all semantics, anyway. Darren: \"Man, this smoke is great, but damn if I'm not suddenly craving an orange Push Up.\" Joe: \"Unlike the Street View car, the Bing truck is equally at home on the street or at a rave.

Meet Earthmine's \"pedestrian area platform quadracycle.\" The company claims it's a way to map areas of the world that can't be reached by its camera-equipped SUVs... but we think the truth may be far more sinister than that. Diabolical, even. Joanna: \"Do you really need a helmet on one of those?\"

A rusty short bus isn't the first thing you expect to find parked -- nay, displayed -- outside one of Microsoft's most important events of the year, but alas... here it is.
