This is a Mystery Science Theater 3000 themed wall decal featuring the silhouettes of Tom Servo, Joel and Crow T. Robot made to appear like they’re sitting a row behind you on the couch. They’re not really though, it’s just a $ 35 sticker for sale from Walkingdeadpromotion. Don’t feel like putting it behind the couch? Put it behind the toilet. Just don’t come crying to me when they all start ragging on your bathroom habits. I’ve been saying it for years, robots are mean.
Thanks to beeps, who agrees if you can ever avoid having someone sitting behind you during a movie, you go for that option.

Formlabs, the little 3D printer company that could, sat down with us to show off their Form 1 printer, a stereolithographic system that creates surprisingly high resolution objects using lasers and and plastic resin.
The company has been in the news lately thanks to a patent lawsuit and, more important, a move to hire more players on their small team.
I sat down with Maxim Lobovsky to talk about his cool printer, how it feels to work with his best friends, and what’s next for the company.
If you thought Intel’s super-charged Core i7 CPUs were only for desktops, then AVADirect reckons it can change your mind. The company’s Clevo P270WM notebook comes strapped to the back of either a six-core i7-3930K or an over-sized i7-3960X, while still leaving plenty of room for dual GeForce GTX 580M graphics, a Bigfoot Killer WiFi adapter, three hard drives and four memory slots offering up to 32GB of RAM. Topping it all off is a 3D-capable 17.3-inch Full HD LED glossy display and backlit keyboard. The base configuration with the 3930K processor, single graphics card and 750GB HDD will set you back over $ 3,000, and if you have to ask how much the NVIDIA Quadro graphics option costs then you’re probably better off with something like this.
Back when many of us were gearing up to go back to school, the shopping list was filled with notebooks (the kind without a battery), pens (read: not a stylus), and a few dozen pencils (old-school #2s that required manual sharpening). Maybe, just maybe, we would have a new graphing calculator to look forward to, but if we ever saw ‘smart’ and ‘phone’ in the same sentence, it was probably in a handwritten note from mom begging us to stop making long-distance calls on the landline.
Now, back to school means picking up extra shifts at work to pay for new computers, cameras, smartphones, e-readers, and tablets — not to mention those still-sky-high prices publishers are commanding for textbooks at the college store. We want to relieve some of that burden — for a few of you, at least. This year, we’ve partnered with top manufacturers in nearly every category to bring you one epic giveaway, complete with all of the products we mentioned above, plus a whole lot more! Lucky winners will receive an Engadget-branded messenger bag, overflowing with the latest tech gear. Jump past the break for the full rundown of prizes, along with instructions for entering our back to school giveaway.
As diligent as we are about keeping you abreast of absolutely every awesome new gadget that hits the market, every once in a while even we miss a real gem. Case in point: Arcade Forge’s SLG 3000 scanline generator, which gives your seemingly flawless HD display a throwback makeover. As the name suggests, the rather diminutive board acts as a middle man between your VGA compatible device and your TV, bringing back the sweet imperfections that marked early console gaming. The thing enlists a series of DIP switches and a potentiometer for setting scanlines and resolution to your specifications. You can land one of your own at the source link for €50. In the meantime, though, we suggest you check out the video after the break to see why we couldn’t bear to let this one get away — even if it is a few months old.

Sneaky Apple… real sneaky. Just as the company announced that it would be axing its rack-mountable Xserve come January 31st, in flies an all-new Mac Pro to effectively take its place. The Mac Pro Server — which is slated to ship in “two to four weeks” — has joined the fray this morning on Apple’s website, with the workstation equipped with a single 2.8GHz quad-core Intel Xeon ‘Nehalem’ processor, 8GB (4 x 2GB) of DDR3 ECC SDRAM, a pair of 1TB (7200RPM) hard drives, one 18x SuperDrive, ATI’s Radeon HD 5770 with 1GB of GDDR5 video memory, and a fresh copy of Mac OS X Server (the unlimited-client license version, for those wondering). Curiously enough, this marks the second time Apple has thrown a “server edition” into the mix, with the Mac mini Server popping up in June. As you’d expect, the $ 2,999 base price can be pushed far north by slapping in a pair of 2.93GHz six-core ‘Westmere’ chips (a modest $ 3,475 increase), 32GB of RAM (only an extra $ 3,400), a Mac Pro RAID card (pocket change at $ 700) and a quad-channel 4Gb fibre channel PCIe card (just an extra grand). But hey, financing is available!
Press Release MENLO PARK, Calif., July 30, 2006 – Intelligent Artifice, Inc. (Nasdaq: AIUS) announced today the beta release of its flagship product, the Dance-O-Matic 3000. Developed over thirteen years by a dedicated team of engineers, programmers, and finishing schools, the Dance-O-Matic 3000 (US patent nos. 1322141232, 1243365443, and 4654322143) is the world’s first dancing toy ever to pass the Turing/Baryshnikov Test, performing undetected on stage as a water nymph in the Los Angeles Ballet Company’s production of Ondine. “The Dance-O-Matic 3000 represents a breakthrough in dancing toy technology,” said Steven Poole, vice president of marketing at IA. “Capable of accurately mimicking over 2000 human dances–everything from Merengue to the Hora to the Funky Chicken–its versatility, its grace and beauty, and its ninety minute charging time are unmatched by competing products.” Lightweight and portable, the Dance-O-Matic 3000 can be easily carried by two adults or a small group of stout children. “Or perhaps a pony,” mused Poole. As its first public demonstration of the DOM3000, Intelligent Artifice produced a short film featuring the toy interacting with several of IA’s lead engineers. The song chosen for the demo was “A Million Ways” by Okgo, a band you may remember from such music videos as “Get Over It,” “Invincible,” and an award-winning advertisement for Dramamine(R) directed by Olivier Gondry. The film can be seen on the company web site and on youtube.com …

PXP is a PSP cloner but their latest product sways a bit from the original. The PXP 3000 looks more like a movie prop than an emulator and media player. But you’re going to buy it for its capabilities and looks anyway. It’s only $70 and can play, NES, FC, GB, GBC, and MD games alone with support most every media file available. Plus it has those killer looking stereo speakers up top and a camera. Take that Sony PSP. [ChinaGrabber via pmptoday]
