If you have always want to get your hands on a Willow Garage PR2 Robot but cant quite find the $400,000 in change to place the order. You might be please to know Willow Garage has now unveiled a new and relatively cheaper model called the PR2 SE.

Unfortunately to save on costs and hit the cheaper $285,000 price mark, Willow Garage needed to remove a few components, well an arm to be exact. But don’t worry you can always buy the other arm later on once funds start rolling in.

Even with one arm you can still carry out some amazing tasks, watch a video of the PR2 SE’s bigger brother, all be it with two arms baking cookies after the jump.

Both the PS2 and lighter one armed PR2 SE Robot come equipped with the Microsoft Kinect motion sensor, allowing you to program and create a hug ... Read more »

The Spire Boat is a speed boat which has been designed by Thierry Mugler Studio, and as you can see from the photos below, the Spire Boat has taken some of its design inspiration from the original bat mobile.

The Spire Boat will be presented at the Monaco Yacht Show in September, and it looks like the company behind this crazy looking speedboat have already received some orders for the Spire Boat.

There are no details how much the Spire Boat will cost, but we suspect this will be one for the Bruce Wayne types as it will probably cost a small fortune.

If you have a few old computers lying around you could put them to good use and create some geeky footwear or clothing like the Data Sandals pictured below.  They have been created from a multitude of unwanted electronic components including data wire, motherboards and batteries, by Etsy member and artist Steven Rodrig.

Rodrig uses the printed circuit boards from discarded computers and other electronic items to create weird and wonderful creations, some of which are available to purchase on Etsy.

They may not be the most comfortable shoes on the block, but they have to win 1st place for the most geeky pair of sandals.  If you think they will suit a geeky outfit you already have, the Data Sandals are now available to purchase for $350 from the Etsy store.

Microsoft recently released Windows Phone 7 Mango to their manufacturing partners, and we have already seen one Windows Phone Mango smartphone announced, and now according to the guys over at ZDnet Microsoft is working on Windows Phone Tango.

According to the report Windows Phone Tango, won’t be a follow up to Windows Phone Mango instead it will be more like Windows Phone 7.1, and it will introduce a new range of cheaper Windows Phone 7 smartphones.

Using your iPhone or smartphone whilst driving your car isn’t exactly the best idea, and is illegal in a lot of places, the latest iPhone accessory doesn’t exactly seem like the best idea, and we don’t think it would be the safest thing to use whilst you are driving, the Steer Safe.

The Steer Safe is an attachment for your steering wheel that is designed to house your iPhone 4, and let you use it on your steering wheel, and the designers of the device say that it should only be used when you vehicle is parked or stationary, although in the video they seem to be using it whilst driving.

Should you want one of these devices, the Steer Safe is a Kickstarter project, and it will cost around $30 if it actually goes into production.

"After the very positive reception to the launch of the Nokia N9, the product is now being rolled out in countries around the world. At this time we will not be making it available in the US.
