Not sure whether this gizmo is brilliant or just another Bigmouth Billy Bass (ie. funny once or twice and then very, very, very annoying). For now, we like… More cool toys on Brandish
Brandish thought the whole stair/robots debate had been settled when the Daleks learned to fly in the recent Doctor Who remake. But no. It seems cutting-edge robotics still can’t quite cope with an average flight of stairs. Check the video at this link for an example of Honda’s Asimo robot trying (and failing) to reach the first floor without falling …
Us gentlemen are known for enjoying a bit of football aren’t we? From reading Roy of the Rovers, to still hanging onto a dream that you could offer your club of choice something even though you’re a bit overweight and cough up terrible things after running for longer than a minute. Well, you’ll be glad to know that there is …
Gears of War, for Xbox 360, is the greatest video game we’ve played this year. The graphics are beautiful and the gameplay is immersive. Whereas a lot of new 360 games don’t really look so different from Xbox titles, GoW really does show off Microsoft’s next-gen capabilities, as the clip below shows… BUY IT
This guy is seriously talented. It’s like he’s got a massive drumkit inside his mouth or somethingâ?¦
Don’t need to add any comments really – the title says it all.

Amazing what they can program a Formula 1 car’s engine to do these days… this Renault clearly has much more talent than, say, X Factor’s Chico.
This is the best Reservoir Dogs vs Clockwork Orange video mash-up you’ll see today.
Want to get in early on the next Spielberg or Scorsese? You could do worse than check out the finalists for this year’s Nokia Shorts competition, which have just been announced. The rules were simple: entrants had to submit 15-second short films, which have now been weeded down to the five nominees. Brandish’s pick? ‘Ah Youth’, which sees an old …
But how do you press the snooze button?
Two colleagues spent all night at their workplace setting this up. Which begs the question… why?
The title says it all.

Have you seen the OK GO! video that’s causing a stir all over the internet? (If you haven’t click here to see it) Well, here come the spoofs and tributes. This one is a particular favourite of mine… probably because it ends in injury.
