One of the most epic product unboxings we’ve ever seen! Enjoy!
Built by researchers from the Machine Perception Laboratory at UCSD, Diego-San is a 4.2-foot tall robotic baby, and is probably the scariest thing I’ve seen so far this year.

Having still not yet entirely conquered my desire for a netbook—mostly staved off by the fact that my iPod Touch gets the job done most of the time—there may yet be good news. It is quite likely that I have simply waited long enough for netbooks to be, well, so last decade. Enter the smartbook. […]
