When the Parrot AR.Drone first launched anyone who ran out and bought it was required to use an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch to fly it. Since then the drone's controller apps have made their way to Android giving the customer a bit more choice, but it just doesn't seem to be enough. Many AR.Drone owners want to control their flying machine with a traditional gamepad or joystick, and thanks to a new app from Logic Consulting, we finally can – though we're once again stuck with Apple.

It’s no secret that Xbox 360 consoles just don't last. In fact, everyone I know that has one has either had to send it off to Microsoft for repair or is on their third or fourth purchase. So what are we to do with these broke ass gaming systems? Some like to sell them for parts on eBay, but Spencer Shepard of Blue World Aquariums had a better idea -- do a backward case mod and turn it into a salt-water home for aquatic life. Read More...
