Remember those awesome pin art toys where you could press your hand (or face) into the pins to leaving a lasting impression? Researchers at MIT have taken the idea one (or two) steps further with \"GelSight,\" a hunk of synthetic rubber that creates a detailed computer visualized image of whatever

There's just something about the phrase \"built to strict U.S. military standards\" that makes us want to go positively medieval on a rugged device. Sadly, the aforementioned qualifier doesn't mean that Clickfree's new C2 Rugged Back-up Drive is capable of withstanding, say, a hail of gunfire, but
