20 Cool Toys: Retro Style

Share

Kids are mesmerized by screens these days, and they forget (or never discover) how much fun cool toys can be, especially the ones that all of us old fogies played with as children.  Pitting the blue punching machine against the red punching machine and popping the other guy’s head off is the most fun that can be had around the Christmas season.  So, be sure to be “that awesome relative” who didn’t buy their young nephew a video game about illegal substances …

Omni: Virtual Reality Gaming is Real, Affordable, and Has Me Kicking Myself

Share

The bottom line for 3D printers?  Sounds like a lot of HOOPLAH!  Sounds like a lot of HOOPLAH!  I SAID, IT SOUNDS LIKE A LOT OF – HOOPLAH!  *Hit with a flying brick* …
