The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have never been particularly intimidating superheroes, but that’s about to change. Artist Ian Olsen has designed a realistic version of Leonardo that will have you looking at the team in a whole new way. Finally, a version of the turtles that looks tough and absolutely lethal. Now, if we can just get this version on a movie screen, then that’d be something to see.

This is absolutely the most brilliant university ad that has ever been created. It’s for the University of East Anglia which just happens to be Matt Smith’s alma mater. He studied drama and creative writing there, graduating back in 2005. They have a pretty impressive list of graduates, but I think graduating a Time Lord really does have all the others beat.
You can’t hide what you’re doing from a warg. They see everything as this comic by Azad Injejikian proves. That’s just awkward.
A game is coming your way this fall that apparently includes every character with super powers in the DC Comics universe. Not just the current characters either; everyone in the company’s publishing history. I know – it doesn’t sound real. Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure isn’t made up though. Kotaku was present at a press event about the game this week and stated they heard the following:
“We have the DC Comics characters… all of them,” Caleb Arseneaux, producer at the game studio 5TH Cell said while introducing the game to the press this week in Los Angeles.
Yes, there’s the standard Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, and Superman. There are also minor characters and multiple iterations of characters like Batman. And they’re all in extra cute form.
The game will play like others in the Scribblenauts series. You give the game a noun, and it shows up in the game. You enter the objects to solve puzzles and in this version, you can enter the name of objects or DC Characters. It looks like a lot of fun.
Keep an eye out for the series coming to PC, 3DS, and Wii U.

They say that cooking is an art, and for those of us who happen to burn the pot while one is boiling water, it goes without saying the kitchen is a whole lot better off without you in it. The thing is, you have this passion to tinker around the kitchen much to the chagrin of everyone else living under the same roof as you, but thank goodness technology has progressed to such a stage where it is able to help out even the most clueless of chefs. Case in point, BBQs are fun, but it is an art to know whether that slab of meat, or row of sausages are well cooked right to the inside. Enter the $79.99 Bluetooth BBQ Thermometer to help you get the job done.
With the Bluetooth BBQ Thermometer, no longer do you need to hang around a hot grill in order to check on the temperature of the food being cooked constantly, leaving you time and opportunity to chat up that sweet young thing whom you have had your eyes on for the longest time already. The Bluetooth BBQ Thermometer would come across as a grilling, cooking, smoking thermometer, where it will work in tandem with an app on your iOS-powered device, or other compatible smartphones. A dual temperature probe will monitor a couple of different meats simultaneously, even up to 200 feet away, and will alert you the moment your food has reached the temperature you set on the base station.
You are a definite man’s man, and you absolutely loathe having to ask for help from different people during your moments of weakness. In fact, you live by the motto that “if you want something done right, then do it yourself”, so much so that you do not even trust the local barber to get your hair cut, preferring instead to do it yourself. If that is the case, then the $59.95 Single Handed Barber might be your cup of tea, as this electric hair trimmer is said to be able to cut evenly in any direction, allowing you to maintain your own closely cropped, clean-cut hairstyle without having to fork out more money for the barber.
In fact, the Single Handed Barber has been touted to be so easy to use as though you are combing your hair. Amazing, isn’t it? Just how is that possible? Well, the circular trimmer’s rotary cutting system and razor-sharp stainless steel blades will cut into your hair as the unit is moved circularly through your head, as it gently accommodates the contours of your pate. There will be a couple of attachments cut hair to four different lengths (1/8″, 1/4″, 3/8″, or 1/2″), and thanks to an ergonomic design, it will be able to fit nicely in the palm of your hand for a more precise control. Hammacher claims the rechargeable battery can deliver a quartet of five-minute hair cuts after a 16-hour charge, or you can plug it directly into the power outlet for extended preening sessions.
You never know when you’re going to need to know how to say “Today is a good day to die!” in Klingon, so Bing has got you covered. They’ve added it as an official language to their translator. You can even have an entire website translated into Klingon. This wasn’t just a two-second effort on the part of the people at Bing, but involved working with linguistics Ph.D. Marc Okrand who was the one who originally developed the language for the series. Just think how handy this will be at the movie premiere!
So we took a gander at the HP Split x2 hybrid notebook earlier this morning, but is that the only device that was recently announced by HP? Not quite, as the other rabbit that HP pulled out from their hat is the HP SlateBook x2, although this puppy does not have anything to do with the Windows 8 operating system, but prefers to jive with Google’s Android mobile operating system instead. So, how does the HP SlateBook x2 stack up against the rest of the Android-powered tablets in the market? It would be interesting to see how, but we will have to wait until later this August as that is when the HP SlateBook x2 will be released in the US for $479.99 a pop.
With the HP SlateBook x2, users are said to be able to shift effortlessly from entertainment to work thanks to the clever combination of tablet portability alongside notebook productivity in a sleek, lightweight package, where it relies on the hugely popular Android operating system (that has since seen 900 million plus device activations ever since Android was introduced commercially a few years back) to get the job done. Thanks to an advanced magnetic hinge design and dual battery system, where you will find one battery residing in the keyboard dock and the other in the tablet itself, users can switch from notebook to tablet and back in a jiffy.
To make sure that users of the HP SlateBook x2 will not trade functionality for portability, it runs on the latest Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean version, where you will be able to enjoy the full slew of Google services such as Google Now, Google Search, Gmail, YouTube, Google Drive and Google+ Hangouts for multiperson video chat, in addition to gaining access to apps and digital content through thanks to Google Play.
The HP SlateBook x2 will be powered by an NVIDIA Tegra 4 mobile processor, where it comes with a 10.1-inch HD touchscreen display, 64MB of internal storage (that’s pretty little, no?) and DTS Sound+ Solution. Hopefully the 64MB of internal storage is a typo by the PR folks, 64GB would make much more sense. Any takers for the Slatebook x2?
The latest trailer for the upcoming Joss Whedon series “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” gives us an even better look at what we can expect when the series debuts this Fall. We’ve got Agent Coulson back from the dead, witty agents, explosions, gadgetry, superheroes, and a sexy, red car named Lola. It’s as good as any movie trailer and sets the bar darn high. We’ve also got official cast shots from the series to give you a good look at the people you’ll be getting to know on Tuesdays this Fall.
