The XM-25 Laser Guided Grenade Launcher Is Scary Cool (video)

I hate to make light of things that murder or maim, but the XM-25 is a bad ass weapon.  Instead of firing your standard 40mm grenade is uses a laser targeting system that measures the distance to the target and communicates tha...

A-Box: Ammo Box Turned High End Bullet Proof iPod Speaker System

We've definitely seen our fair share of tough computers, iPhone cases and more, but none have matched up to the A-Box.  It's an artillery box turned speaker system that works with any MP3 player sporting a 3.5mm headphone jack....

Android…Controls Android?

That's not a typo, folks, that's a strange little bit of news that'll make your day just a little more surreal.  I try to do that sort of thing wherever possible. If you've got $3000, a lot of patience and anything with the And...

The Future of War: Cyborg Beetles and Combat Wasps

Sahkr iPhone App Does Real Time Speech-To-Speech Translations (video)

Now this is pretty fly for a white guy.  Until recent most iPhone translation apps were limited to text input or a phrase dictionary.  Select the phrase and an audio bite would play.  But what about speech-to-speech translation...

Dell Outs Ballistic Armored Laptop, The Latitude E6400 XFR (videos)

Hmmm...Dell's latest rugged laptop includes Ballistic Armor in its moniker.  With that said I wonder if they'll let us shoot it with a 9mm (not a .22), like we did with the Sonim XP1?  Rated for falls up to 4 feet and all sorts...
