Earlier today when Microsoft’s Surface event was wrapping, and Greg Chiemingo took to the stage to head off a stampede of writers trying to get their hands on the latest device, tweets were still kicking around wondering what had happened: Where the heck was the much-rumored smaller Surface? Bloomberg published a piece later in the day indicating that Microsoft had worked on the… Read More

This is the Little Tikes Coze Couple that was transformed into a mini Ghostbusters Ecto-1 by Redditor tabres for his nephew (formerly: this Ecto-1 pushcart). Fortunate children. When I was growing up my uncle didn’t build me anything, he would simply press my leg right above the knee until the whole thing went numb since I refused to state grace. Life is pain– it was a crucial message to find out. Plus one time I was pressure-washing his basement with bleach and I hollered up the stairs to whine about exactly how it was burning my eyes and he just banged the door hollering, “Get back to work!” And you learned what? I’m a more powerful person due to the fact that of it. Other than my eyesight, my vision is way even worse (the eye doctor stated my eyeballs have the texture of raisins now). Keep choosing shots from all around.
To say the least, there’s always something peculiar to be found at Toy Fair. Put simply, this place is guaranteed fun. It’s like being five years young and stepping into a Toys R Us for the first time ever — except there’s much, much more stuff…
HTC must feel that it’s best to underpromise and overdeliver. While the company told American One owners that they wouldn’t get KitKat on time, the 535MB Android upgrade is already available on Sprint; eager subscribers just have to check for an …
Despite once being considered an online innovator, Prince has more recently made a name for himself for being unafraid to confront the infringement of his work. Now, the artist has filed a hefty $ 22 million lawsuit against 22 Facebook and Blogger users for working in concert to steal his content.
That thing up there? Word on the street (that is, Twitter) is that it’s an engineering prototype of the Nokia Normandy, a low-end Android device due sometime in 2014. The name has been floating around for a few months now, often accompanied by images …
Arctec, makers of high-end 3D scanners for industrial clients, have added a little whimsy to your day with Shapify.me, a service that can scan and print your body in full color, allowing you to make a little mini me of your very own.
The system uses the Kinect Sensor – it works with either the Kinect for Windows or Kinect for Xbox 360 – and allows you to scan your entire body using a PC or Mac. The software then lets you download the scan for 3D printing or order the print for $ 59. Prints are available in the US and Canada but more countries are coming soon.
Capturing the image is a little tricky – there are a lot of lighting issues and lots of turning – but the service seems to be outputting smooth, usable scans. Arguably these aren’t as beautiful as some other services we’ve seen including the incredible Twinkind but because you’re depending on a fairly low resolution system like the Kinect and limited processing power it’s easy to forgive some of the elisions in the model.
I’ve learned that 3D scanning is hard and anything that makes it easier is a good thing. While it might be a little late to give a Shapify figurine to your dear old mother and father, it’s definitely a fun little toy and could be an interesting tool for home hobbyists. Besides, who doesn’t want a 3D selfie?
After a brief hiatus, we’re back with a very special episode of the TechCrunch Droidcast. Recorded with both myself and Chris Velazco in the flesh in our studio offices in sunny, warm (actually freezing, dark) Toronto, Canada this week is a pleasantly brief sojourn into the world of Android.
We deal mostly with the new Google Play edition devices launched this week, which include a stripped down, virtually stock OS running on Sony’s Experia Ultra Z (though it loses the ‘Xperia’ for some reason) and the LG G Pad 8.3-inch Android tablet. Google’s going a little wild with those ‘blessed’ devices, which have the benefit of having all manufacturer bloatware stripped out, to show just how dumb OEM skins actually are.
We invite you to enjoy weekly Android podcasts every Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. Eastern and 2:30 p.m. Pacific (generally speaking), in addition to our weekly Gadgets podcast at 3 p.m. Eastern and noon Pacific on Fridays. Subscribe to the TechCrunch Droidcast in iTunes, too, if that’s your fancy.
