Mattel Reveals Wonder Woman and Invisible Jet Comic-Con Exclusive and More


Mattel has revealed their collection of exclusive toys that will only be available at San Diego Comic-Con this year. My favorite in the bunch is Wonder Woman and her invisible jet. Some of the other toys they've revealed include She-Ra, Ghostbusters, Katana from DC Super Hero Girls, Barbie Wonder Woman, Barbie Star Trek alien girl, Joker from Suicide Squad, and more. 

There's not a lot of information on the Wonder Woman figure, but it looks like the invisible jet actually could be the packaging for the new action figure.

Cool Samurai Armor Made Out of Cardboard


Now you can make your own samurai armor out of cardboard! It might not offer you any real protection, but it’s light, cool, and stylish. The armor comes in two different styles: The bright red armor based on famed warrior Sanada Yukimura’s iconic outfit, complete with reindeer horns; and the other is a dark set of armor inspired by Date Masamune’s.

They armor is designed to fit adults from 4′ 11″ to 5′ 10″ tall. They are available for $70 (USD) each from Japan Trend Shop. Techabob amusingly points out that if that’s too much money for you, you can always go the Little Caesar’s armor route.

Classic DRAGON BALL Episode Awesomely Recreated By Over 200 Animators

Seven Star Re-Animate is a fan project that was started in late 2014 that called for talented fans of Dragon Ball to help recreate a classic episode of the animated series. Over 200 fans answered the call and now that project has been completed, It features several different styles that include a variety of 2D and 3D art styles. 

The episode that they chose to recreate is episode 8, which is where Goku first learns his trademark kamehameha wave. I really enjoyed watching this and there are a ton of fun and crazy animation styles that were included in it that were really cool to watch. 

This is an non profit, global collaborative, fan effort showcasing talented artists showing some love for Dragon Ball. A big thanks should go to all the artists who lent their time, and talents, to this too sweet animation!

I hope this group tries to organize another animated recreation of a classic cartoon series.

Nintendo Power Glove Reprogrammed to Work as a Drone Remote Control

I remember when my friend got a Nintendo Power Glove when I was growing up. He didn’t know how to work the damn thing, and he wouldn’t let any of his friends play with it and try to get it to work. After a couple of weeks, we never saw him playing with it again and since he never let us try it out, we never asked him if we could try it out. When I finally did get a chance to play with it, it wasn’t as cool as The Wizard made it out to be. It was pretty much useless, but it sure did look cool, though!

An inventive dude by the name of Nolan Moore got himself a Power Glove and replaced the electronics inside with the remote tech to control his drone. 

The AR Drone 2.0 uses WiFi for control. His power glove has an IMU to sense motion, and flex sensors in the fingers. These sensors are monitored by a Teensy LC board which then sends commands over WiFi using an ESP8266 module.

His version of the Power Glove works better as a remote control for the drone than the Nintendo controller it was originally designed for. Check out a video of it in action below.
