The Pokémon Company International collaborated with The Wand Company to release the first ever die-cast Poké Ball Replica Series. Not just a decoration, it boasts proximity-sensing technology, which means the button glows when it senses motion. After pressing the button, the light color changes or starts a Pokémon-catching illumination sequence. Each one comes in a presentation case, complete with a certificate of authenticity and serially-numbered hologram. Read more for a video and additional information.
The problem with most electric bikes is that they usually need to be recharged after 40-50 miles or so, that is unless…you’re talking about Biktrix’s Juggernaut HD Duo. This is made possible with its dual 910Wh battery system – one embedded in the frame and a second mounted within the triangle of the frame – that gives you up to 200-miles of range. Power comes from a 1500W mid-drive motor, paired with a 2002Wh battery, enabling it to hit a top speed of 35 mph. Read more for a video and additional information.

Peter Sripol wanted to take Nerf blasters to the next level, and in an unconventional way. So, he acquired a Nerf Elite 2.0 Turbine CS-18 motorized blaster, removed its standard electric motors and then replaced them with a Toyan 4-stroke engine designed for remote-controlled toys. Aside from sourcing the precision metallic adapters, the entire process wasn’t too much trouble, but the result is definitely worth checking out, especially with its customized gearbox.

The company reportedly wants to employ a flexible display panel that can turn a standard 6-inch smartphone to an 8-inch tablet, and thus this Samsung Galaxy Note concept was born. Dutch 3D designer Jermaine Smit, better known as Concept Creator online, has visualized this device to give fans an idea of what it could look like.

There are a few natively supported titles, including Arizona Sunshine in partnership, which means setup is as easy as strapping on the shoes, booting up the headset, and selecting the in-game Cybershoes locomotion option.
