    McDonald s Invented a Takeout Bag That Transforms Into a Serving
    Gear | Design
    McDonald’s redesigned its paper bags with a tearaway strip at the bottom revealing a sturdy serving tray built right in. Developed by McDonald’s Hungary alongside ad agency DDB Budapest, the bottom of the eco-friendly and recyclable paper bags is made from reinforced cardboard so that it can safely hold even a large-sized meal without collapsing.  
    "McDonald’s Hungary and DDB Budapest embarked on a groundbreaking innovation: the paper bag that so far only served as a food carrier is now equipped with a cardboard tray.
    With one simple tearing movement by the perforation at the bottom of the bag, it can be separated from the upper part and then we can enjoy our meal in the usual manner, on a tray.

    Microsoft’s How-Old.net site has quickly become an internet sensation after it was introduced last week at the company’s annual Build Developer Conference. We tested the software with some famous faces and iconic portraits of the world, and the results...
    "while the API is reasonably good at locating the faces and identifying gender it isn’t particularly accurate with age, but it’s often good for a laugh and users have fun with it"

    Gear | Toy
    For its new Death Star Final Duel set being released in June, Lego redesigned the Vader minifig’s helmet to break into two pieces exactly like it did in Return of the Jedi, revealing his life-support collar underneath.
    The rest of the $80 Death Star Final Duel set looks pretty great too. It includes the aforementioned Vader minifig, the Emperor, Luke, a pair of Imperial Guards, and enough of the Death Star’s throne room to recreate that epic battle. In fact, the set might be completely worth it just to get the Force lightning shooting out of the Emperor’s hands.

    This sand funnel allows you to make drawings or structures in the sand using the magic of science. It’s a hand-held funnel that fills up in part with water, and the other part with sand. You then use it to create whatever you want, since the line of sludge that comes out the tip solidifies almost instantly, turning your hand into a 3D printing head. It’s $9.49.

    Bruno Is The World’s First Smart Trashcan

    Bruno Is The World  s First Smart Trashcan
    Home | Appliance
    Bruno is more than a can, it’s also a vacuum.  Bruno is integrated a vacuum system into its bottom, letting you sweep your crumbs, pet hairs, and other detritus right up to the can, walking over to the can, you just sweep it right up to Bruno, who’ll then suck it up. Sensors on the inside alert you when you need to change the collection bag, and it stores a bunch of empty bags so you don’t have to go around looking for new ones when it’s time to take the trash out. And of course, it is a trashcan, a motion sensing lid opens up for full hands-free operation.

    This is a  R2-D2-themed coffee table featuring a working Star Wars pinball machine inside. There’s even a mini slideprojector (picturing R2 in the Death Stars’ sewage), a flashlight, sounds, lighting programs, and a fully functional animated droid on the play field.And ok, yeah, it did take over 320 hours to assemble… But $10,000?
    "The Droid features an authentic Star Wars pinball payfield housed in the body of the daring and loyal R2D2. The Droid rolls on it’s own wheels and features a mini slideprojector (picturing R2 in the Death Stars’ sewage), a flashlight, sounds, lighting programs, and a fully functional animated droid on the playfield. As only C-3PO could put it, this droid “is in prime condition, a real bargain”."

    The HexHog Is The Ultimate Offroad Wheelchair
    Gear | Gadget
    The HexHog is a  six-wheeled, battery-powered all terrain vehicle that is as adapted to disabled use, as it is badass. With a range of 12mi. and a top speed of 8.5mph, the HexHog isn’t going to win any races, but that’s not its point.
    "– A patented flexing chassis providing stability superior to an ATV without needing to actively lean or ride. The chassis mechanism will ensure all six wheels maintain contact when traversing rough terrain, rocks and steep steps while minimising seat movement for a comfortable ride in the most extreme environments.
    – Lithium-ion battery power plant, meaning no vibration, fumes or noise from engines with a long range, in addition to providing a fast charge of less than 2 hours.
    – A seat transfer system, which advances and lowers the driving seat to a position for independent transfer from a wheelchair.
    – All-wheel drive providing maximum off-road traction. The sealed 6×6 transmission and raised drive motors in conjunction with the flexing chassis will allow the HexHog to tread water, travel through mud bogs, and cross snow or sand without harm or reduction in performance.
    – Electronic drive architecture, giving maximum independence to wheelchair users with varying abilities. The HexHog employs the latest control architecture, with a programmable joystick allowing safe operation on steep slopes and rough terrain. Bespoke adjustments can be made to suit all driving styles and safe operation with reduced dexterity or upper limb movement."
    We don’t know how much it costs and we can just imagine it’s not cheap.
